Guestbook comments from the owner:

Great home and community! Pool/hot tub was perfect for our stay. We enjoyed the close walk to the beach and having the golf cart to transport all our beach things and cooler! The home is clean, inviting and had everything you would need to stay for a week, thank you!


Jul 2020

I would recommend staying in this beautiful home. She gives great hospitality and is willing to make your stay, knowledgeable so that you may enjoy all that your visit can experience. My family love it, it was first visit to Florida.


Jul 2020

Jan was very responsive to a few items that needed attention. Her home is a very nice one! The pool was an added bonus for the grandchildren.


Jun 2020

The house and location are great and Jan was excellent to work with too. I highly recommend staying here for your next vacation. There was some unexpected perks like each bathroom being equipped with large complimentary bottles of soap and shampoo; several beach chairs, boogie boards and pool noodles; some cooking oils and spices; and some kitchen paper goods like paper plates. All of which were very much appreciated. The house is a quick golf cart or car ride away from the closest public beach access at the Crap Trap. Also close to several great restaurants and shopping.


Jun 2020

The house was just as described and in the pictures. The area is absolutely gorgeous and we loved that it was so close to everything! Jan recommended places to go and even events going on during our stay (over new years) Thanks so much for having us!

Amazing Family Vacation

This home is perfect for spending family time! The grandkids had a blast in the bunk bed room, doing what cousins do! The extra large washer in dryer kept towers dry for the kids, which was a task in itself! We fixed breakfast, took a dip in the pool, played games and took golf cart rides! Dinner most nights was grilling and cooking in the dream kitchen! Jan, the owner was so wonderful! Any time I text her, she was quick to respond! Close to the beach, we sat up canopy's on the beach in the morning, went back and forth to the beach from the house all day! The TV picked up movies and cartoons my husband and grandkids loved! We do a family vacation every two years, this place will be top of my list next Family Vacation!

Stayed: Submitted: July 27, 2021

Owner response
