Amazing Wedding

  • 5 of 5
I contacted the owners back in November about the possibility of having a small ceremony at their house. Little did I know how fantastic things would turn out to be. The owners of the house were able to marry us, cater the event, have the tables and chairs delivered along with access to a cake decorator for my cake. They gave me a fantastic deal on everything and the apartment was immaculate. I could not have asked for a better day. The couple was very welcoming and thorough in all the wedding plan and worked with me on finances during this time. I was on a tight wedding budget and they did everything they could to work with me.

If you are ever planning a small wedding, I highly recommend this place. It is beautiful, quiet and everything you could possibly hope for.

Thank you again for everything you have done and making my wedding day a huge success.

Very comfortable

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Simplicity for three weeks and was very comfortable.
It is lakefront and tranquil. Full kitchen is well equipped, shower is great.
If you fish, you will find another lake around every bend in the road.
The town is quaint and friendly with several nice local restaurants.
All three of Florida's grocery chains have stores within a couple miles.
Your hosts just could not be nicer people.

We spent a wonderful stay in this very confortable and well furnished apartment.
It is located in a marvellous spot for biking lovers and golfers.
The owners are a very sympathic couple, discrete but available.
Our stay was so pleasant that we decide to return next winter, and we hope, as long as our health will permit.
