Guestbook comments from the owner

There is not much I can say about our stay in this amazing house that has not already been said. We were completely comfortable in this wonderfully equipped spacious house. We want to thank Joyce very much for her kind card, wine and phone calls making sure that everything was in order for us. There were pool toys, beach toys, beach chairs and plenty of ideas of what to do and where to go with our children. Our holiday was the best we have ever had in America and we loved every moment of being able to share you wonderful home. Thank you both very much.



Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Absolutely!

Had an amazing time!

We booked this home a full year before our Nov arrival and from the beginning Joyce was available extremely helpful and professional throughout. We were very happy when we arrived to find a beautiful very clean home in in the fantastic setting of University Park. The only surprise to us was the attention to detail Joyce and Trevor had taken to make sure their guests felt welcome. If you are looking for a vacation home with no surprises at a reasonable price then look no further. You won't regret your choice

Perfect setting, quality home, exceptional owners.

  • 5 of 5
As very fortunate people able to now afford to vacation regularly and therefore experienced in rentals around the world, we simply cannot recommend this home and owners highly enough. From the very start of the booking process to the extremely prompt return of deposit ( 3 days after return including a Bank Holiday!) the whole experience was a dream. The house and its location are just stunning and the description of the home is totally accurate and does not really even do the home justice. The kitchen is very well equipped ( even for a fussy chef husband!) and nothing has been skimped on or forgotten anywhere. High quality furnishings, towels etc etc. Exceptional customer service provided throughout from the owners Joyce & Trevor In short, very very highly recommended and will return as soon as we are able.
