Beautiful home, amazing pool, wonderful for parents and children alike!
We stayed in this beautiful home for a week in April. It was everything we hoped for in a vacation rental. The house was beautifully decorated and the layout was perfect for us. Downstairs there are three spacious bedrooms, a large living area with an attached dining area, and a well-appointed kitchen with a large breakfast table. The kitchen even had a pass-through window to the pool area, which was great since we loved having our dinner on the lanai next to the pool. Upstairs there are two bedrooms and a large living area. Having both an upstairs and downstairs living area was great for our extended family, as the kids could hang out upstairs and play games or watch TV while the adults were socializing in the living room. The lanai, pool, spa and tiki hut in the backyard were great places to unwind after we got back from the beach. We also used the bikes and enjoyed exploring the neighborhood. The house and pool were so relaxing, we ended up forgoing a few beach days just to spend more time in the pool and spa. Although the area had many restaurants, we primarily cooked at the house for most of our stay. The home was very clean and it was easy to arrange our check in and check out. I highly recommend this home and I hope to return again next year!
