Paradise .....The Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 weeks in this beautiful rental....We have rented several homes all over the country and this was our favorite by far....The house is so Comfortable, Clean and We really enjoyed the pool....But it was the little details that made it a perfect rental...The Nautica beach chairs, Umbrella, the comfortable pool rafts and the gas grill just to name a few....It helps not having to cram all this in your vehicle especially since we were coming from Indiana....I could go on and on , but I think you get it ;)....We already booked another two weeks while on vacation for next year...You can't loose with this rental....Ps. Thanks to Lou and Rita for their help on our stay! God Bless The Boyd Family

Tropical Gem

  • 5 of 5

Would like to add this house was beautiful in every manner from the décor to the well equipped home. The pool was amazing we spent most of our time on the lanai. Easy access to area shopping and restaurants . Very peaceful location would stay their again when in the area. The only issues was the confusion over the pool heat which said was included and we had to call and have it turned on and Lou came immediately to do it so it wasn't a problem just a misunderstanding on what is included and what wasn't. Very well kept property thanks for letting us enjoy your home as our get away property.

Beautiful Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with another couple stayed here and we absolutely loved it! The home is beautiful and very well kept. It was exactly how it was described if not better. It was very well cleaned and maintained. The managers were great with keeping in touch and answering any questions I had. It rained a lot while we were there so the house was a great place to be. I would definitely recommend this home!!

Fantastic Stay in this villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and me (4 persons) had a great stay in this villa.

The check in and check out process was very comfortable and easy. The support during our stay from Lou and Rita was perfect.

The villa is in perfect and clean condition. The funiture is stylish and perfect arranged.

The location is absolutely calm and relaxing (no direct beach access).

You will find really anything you need for a comfortable holiday - from the gas grill station over entertainment, TVs, WIFI, bikes, pool and beach equipement.etc.

Great - may be we come back once again!

German version

Meine Familie und ich (4 Personen) hatten einen wundervollen Urlaub in dieser Villa.

Die Hausübernahme und Übergabe war komfortabel, einfach und unbürokratisch. Die vor Ort Unterstützung von Lou und Rita war perfekt.

Die Villa ist in perfekten und absolut sauberen Zustand, alles ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Die Einrichtung ist aufwändig und hochwertig (deshalb nix für kleine Kinder).

Die Wohngegend ist sehr ruhig und erholsam, aber nicht direkt am Strand (ca. 30 km entfernt).

Man findet in der Villa wirklich alles - vom Gasgrill über Entertainment, Fernseher, WIFI und Strand und Pool Equipement.

Der Pool ist großartig . Man kann z.B. nachts ein erfrischendes Bad nehmen und die Sterne angucken.

Einfach großartig.Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen
