I was so impressed with La Casa I had to leave a review. The house surpassed my every expectations, from the views from the balconies, the waterside fire pit, the hot tub, to the accommodations in the house, everything was perfect. Location was perfect as well, as it is very close to everything, yet felt secluded and quiet. Scott and Marlene were terrific to deal and made our stay very comfortable and memorable. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

The house was just stunning! Beautifully decorated top to bottom, meticulously clean, and fully equipped with all we needed for an enjoyable stay. We enjoyed the great water views from all three balconies, fished and kayaked. The owners Scott and Marlene were always available, and cared about making our stay comfortable. Our only issue was we didn't have enough vacation time to enjoy all the amenities they had to offer! It was an A+ vacation!

family gathering -60th birthday

I selected this rental for a family gathering & our family was very pleasured. The house was very comfortable & met our needs for relaxing & entertainment. We enjoyed the kayaking, paddle boarding for the 1st time, hot tub, bean bag tournament, & relaxing in the hot tub. The area was a prime area that we enjoyed Busch Gardens, chartered fishing-cooked our catch in our rental, & went to the beach. The rental was decorated christmas fancy! Had a great time!

Location and sense of peace at Scott's home was incredible. It is close to everything you need but the overall feeling of the property is as if you're in the islands secluded from the daily rat race. This is one incredible home, one in which I lived in!

Thanks for the incredible week at your home. I would recommend this property to anyone.
