Superb house in a gated community directly on a beautiful golf course. In fact, the property is located on hole # 2. We had a great time during our last vacation during which we wanted to recreate our honeymoon for our 34th wedding anniversary. This property is absolutely amazing. The support of the owner is exceptional. Great location, very clean house, supporting owner. I would definitely recommend this property to relatives... in fact I already did. In a word WOW! Thank you for!
A bit leery after reading one of the reviews, my husband and I still decided to stay at this home for a week in October, and were entirely happy that we did. We were in Florida solely for rest and relaxation.
All the home appliances worked very well. The LR couches and our bed were extremely comfortable, and there were even tv's in all bedrooms. Being from Canada, we greatly appreciated the free calling to keep in touch with family back home.
All of our meals were cooked at home, and everything needed to do that was in the cupboards. We lacked nothing! For sitting poolside, there's a good selection of plastic cups for both adults and children.
Southern Dunes is a gated, very pretty community to walk around, watching the golfers or just enjoying the landscaping and beautiful birds. We took a 30 minute scenic drive south down hwy 17 to Bok Tower Gardens, a peaceful, beautiful place with meandering walkways, gorgeous landscaping, and spectacular views. Bells chime from the tower every 1/2 hour. We headed there thinking we'd spend an hour but stayed on for many more.
There is a flea market about 15 mins south from "home" on hwy 27, where we picked up a few items including fresh fruit. That hwy is also a quicker route to Bok Tower Garden if you don't take the scenic hwy 17. WalMart, Dollar Tree, Winn-Dixie and endless restaurants are right outside the security gate, a 2 minute drive from the house. Couldn't be easier!
We had fun playing fooseball and there is a dart board as well in the garage.
The owner lives in the UK but responds to emails in a timely manner. Just note that it is 5 hours later in the UK so be respectful of that. If there are immediate concerns (we had none), there are numbers provided for someone close by. Please remember this is someone's 2nd home. Especially having renters (some very careless), some small cosmetic things will happen. I made mention of a few minor details to the owner which he appreciated learning so he can have them addressed. If things like a bit of scuffed paint is something you can't live with, find a brand new home to rent. We found this to be a very comfortable lovely home.
The screened in pool is on the north side of the home - great for us as we had temps in the mid 90's (mid 30's Celsius), offering us shade and comfort (and no bugs!) while we read books. There is a good selection of them found in the LR - much appreciated!
Thanks Paul for providing everything we needed for a perfect week.
