I never wanted to leave!
It was easy to make ourselves at home...and I definitely did NOT want to leave. The house was spacious and the pool and dock were great places to hang out with family. We rented a boat for a couple of days and even went fishing in the ocean and explored local islands near by. Len was great to deal with, and really did his best to make sure we were taken care of. Thanks for a great vacation!
House was so comfortable and the pool was fabulous! We spent most of our time there! My Son caught his first fish off the dock during our stay and we enjoyed family movies in the comfy living room! Great family time here!
Wonderful place, wonderful area, wonderful vacatio
We spent 5 weeks at" A piece of Heaven" and had a fantastic relaxing vacation. Len ,the owner, was great to work with. He was always prompt to return calls and very help with all questions or dealing with any minor problems that occurred. The house was spacious, clean,and very comfortable. The pool area definitely our favorite place to hang out!
If you are looking for a great neighborhood to walk ,ride bikes and relax this is a fantastic place to be. Many fun places, restaurants and the Gulf of Mexico a short car ride away with festival fun, sight seeing or just beaching it on Manasota Key, Placida, El Jobean, Venice, or Punta Gorda. There is a fantastic bike trail a couple miles away that leads to Placida. It is well kept and we saw lots of wild life including an eagle's nest with both parents tending to two nestlings and an alligator in a wetland area as we crossed a bridge!
We would surely recommend " A piece of Heaven" to anyone looking for a wonderful relaxing vacation. We would not hesitate to stay there again when we return to the area.
comfortable and friendly
The house was very comfortable and well located, loved the view of the canal and water beyond. The house was casual enough that you felt at home and didn't worry about relaxing. The owner is very friendly and helpful.
Renters review of stay at piece of heaven
Home was clean and comfortable lots of amenities - well satisfied - would stay again - owner Len was great to deal with - nice quiet neighborhood - wished I would have brought a boat maybe next time. Close to nice clean beaches
Welcome to paradise.
The house was so nice and clean. It was a sanctuary, with a whole wall that opens up to a screened in pool. We went to Stump Pass beach and Englewood beach and had fun swimming and collecting shells in december. The weather was perfect and sunny for the whole week we where there. We even saw dolphins out in the distance. There are some really tasty resteraunts by the beach too. The house is in a good location and near a supermarket. The neighborhood is safe and the price is good for the type of house you get to rent. Overall our stay was very nice and relaxing. The owner is very nice and easy to reach on the phone.
