LBK Getaway

Review submitted: June 24, 2013   Date of arrival: June 8, 2013

We rent in LBK every summer as soon as school is out to decompress, boat, and spend time with family and friends who live on the island. Especially LOVED Jungle Queen because all I needed to do was go! Everything was just as described and ALL the creature comforts one needs for beaching and boating are there graciously shared by the owner and her family. Must Do List: have wine at sunset on beach, shop at Sand Dollar and Ginny and Jane E's in Anna Maria, discover happy hour at Chart House, anchor and explore the sandbar by LBK bridge, order the grilled fish Caesar salad at Dry Dock...I could go on. Thank you Alise for sharing.

More than we had hoped for!

Review submitted: July 6, 2014   Date of arrival: June 28, 2014

We have stayed in this area before but decided to look for different accommodations this year. The home on Jungle Queen way was perfect for our family, even our dog loved it! The process working with the owner was a great experience from beginning to end. The property was clean and ready to go when we arrived. Loved the split floor pan to have a quiet zone for nappers that was away from the pool. Pour granddaughter was ready to swim every morning, noon and night. We spent a lot of time in the pool. Nice television in the family room. One of our favorite features was the dining room table. It was large enough to fit the whole family around, which was one of the reasons we chose this house. It did not disappoint. Big master suite w cable tv. The garage with washer and dryer was a great plus, fully loaded with beach cart, chairs, toys, etc. loved the short walk to the beach w a private access. Sunsets were amazing!! Bicycles were great. We relaxed and did jigsaw puzzles on the large family room coffee table. Great family time. We brought our boat and the fact that the dock was just steps from the door was a huge benefit. Loved going fishing and out to the sandbar. Great local seafood market & restaurant- Starfish Company in Cortez. Can go by car or boat. Ate from the restaurant, all open air seating- incredible shrimp. Also got fresh mussels, crab, and shrimp to take back to the house and do a seafood boil. Cash only though. St Armand's Circle has lots of nice shops. The Colombian is a wonderful place to eat. We would definitely recommend this house for a wonderful vacation place for people of all ages. There was something for everyone. Can't think of anything that I would do differently. We look forward to returning next year!! Thanks to Alise for sharing this special place!

Owners response: Tiffini, thank you for sharing your experience of our home and the neighborhood! We are so happy to hear how much you enjoyed the amenities and comfort of our home as much as we do - this is the exact reason we left our personal family's toys, games, and equipment for our guests to enjoy as well. Thank you for the photos you sent, and we look forward to hosting you back in our home! Alise

A nice boating holiday

Review submitted: January 12, 2014   Date of arrival: December 28, 2013

We had a very nice time at the Jungle Queen house. We rented a boat and docked behind the home which was great for early morning departures. The entire family had a great time fishing from the dock and just sitting on the canal. Our best times were enjoyed around the fabulous dining table. What a great comfortable space for our family of 6 to sit around eating steaks grilled on the gas grill and fish caught that day on our boat. We all agreed...we loved that table and the dining space. The walk down to the beach was easy and short and the private beach access was wonderful. The kitchen had everything we needed. Everything was clean and well maintained. The owner was easy to work with especially considering she allowed us to squeeze in last minute! Thank you for that and thank you for sharing your home with us!

Owners response: Thank you Maggie for the constructive review. As always, it makes me very happy to know that we are able to assist in making someone's holiday enjoyable and remarkable as we know how we ourselves treasure family times during our holidays. We hope to see you back! Alise
