Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed in this home recently. The photos do not do it justice! I have never stayed in a home this clean and well-maintained before. Your view with your morning coffee is the private lake. Used the kayaks multiple times and was the only one on the water. Bringing the kids next time!

Excellent Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

Rarely does our family of adults and their significant others get a chance to vacation together so when this opportunity came up, we snatched it. This beautiful home and environment created the most wonderful place to enjoy our vacation. Kayaking, fishing, paddle boats, games, puzzles for a rainy day, ping pong, chess, amazing scenery, tremendous wildlife, and all the amenities plus that one could need or want. We saw Herons with babies nesting in the trees above us, newborn ducklings swimming with their moms for the first time, even a resident bunny. Eric and Shannon were wonderful. We sincerely hope to return again sometime. Thank you so much. Patti and David

Great Vacation Spot with lots of room - golf get a way

  • 5 of 5

We had 6 guys stay at this house and it was very spacious, clean, had updated amenities and very centrally located to both Tampa and many of our favorite courses north of Tampa. Eric and Shannon were great to work with. Too bad we didn't have more time to enjoy the beautiful lake behind the property - it looks like a fishing wonderland. The area was extremely peaceful and private.

Beautiful house beautiful property!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house (4 adult couples) as a memorial day weekend getaway and couldn't have been more pleased!! We have rented from homeaway/vrbo 10+ times for group vacations and this is hands down our favorite so far! The home is beautiful and spacious (the pictures dont do it justice), everything we needed for our stay was in the home (cookware, towels, etc). The lake was beautiful we kayaked every day! Eric and his wife are very welcoming and were there anytime we needed them or had a question. We loved the location of the house, it is a private, quiet area yet just a short drive to Tampa where we spent most of our time. My boyfriend and I will definitely be returning for a family trip with my son and parents. The only complaint from anyone in our group was that we had to leave the house and return home!!!

Impromptu Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had a wonderful two week stay at this tranquil lake home. So much to do for everyone - swimming, kayaking, fishing, birdwatching, and the list goes on. With all the amenities, upscale design and high end furnishings, we thoroughly enjoyed our home away from home. The owners, Eric and Shannon are the most genuine people I have ever met! They were so attentive to our needs (even those we hadn't considered) and know the community so well that they can make the best recommendations for activities. We look forward to making this one of our regular destination spots!
