Amazing Spring Break

Amazing Spring Break
We loved our stay in this cute, clean, and comfortable vacation home. The subdivision was well-cared for and quiet. From where we were, at the home, and on the private beach, we would have never known it was during Spring Break. That is exactly what our family wanted. The waterway in the back of the house was full of life. We saw crabs, fish, stingray, dolphins, lizards, and every kind of sea bird you can imagine. We really enjoyed fishing off the dock in the evenings. The private beach was absolutely everything we could have asked for. Quiet. Clean. Easy to get to from the home. Very convenient. The owners we very nice and helpful. I am sure we will be back. What a great experience!
Perfect Family Vacation Home
This is a wonderful vacation home for families with children. It is a very clean and well-maintained house nestled in the heart of a charming subdivision. And features private parking in attached garage. The home has a large master bedroom suite with a king bed, 2 walkin closets, and private bathroom. There is a second bedroom with 2 twin beds, an office with a futon and a second full bathroom. The kitchen is fully equipped with all cooking and baking nessesities, service utensils, plates, bowls and silverware. The air conditioned, glassed-in back patio is perfect for drinking coffee in the morning and watching the birds that come for a visit. The patio leads to a peaceful deck that sits right on a canal. The owners are most gracious to come meet you upon checkin to give a guided tour and answer any questions. They have a membership to the Gulf Harbor clubhouse where renters have access to a large heated pool. Also, they have membership to a private beach that is just a few minutes (by car) with cabanas and clean bathroom facilities. The house is close to grocery shopping, movies, and many dining establishments. The owners have beach towels for your use, as well as bathroom linens for both bathrooms. It is very much as advertised and quite delightful. I hope to rent from the owners again for my next Floridian vacation.
House comfortable and very clean. Great location. Really enjoyed the private beach. Everything as advertised and more. Would definitely rent this place again. Thanks Dave for a great time.
Peaceful Gulf Harbors home on canal to the gulf
The home is situated in a very quiet development of homes with canals to the gulf. The home itself was very comfortable and clean. There's a large flat screen TV in the living area we enjoyed watching and a smaller flat screen in the master bedroom. The large master bedroom has a very comfortable king bed and beautiful furniture. It overlooks the canal. There are two walk-in closest adjoining it as well as an adjoining bath. The guest room is large as well with a bath just outside the door. It was convenient to have the washer and dryer in the home. We enjoyed the private beach and tennis courts. The pool looked inviting. The location was ideal for adventures to other cities within a short drive. The month of February passed quickly. We would recommend this home to our family and friends.
Wonderful and relaxing place to stay in Florida!
This is a very comfortable house in a great neighborhood. The owners were very welcoming and responded immediately to the few questions we had. Four (2 adults, 2 children) of us stayed for a week and had plenty of room to stretch out and relax! We also used the very large, heated community pool and visited the beautiful private beach nearby. We would definitely rent this house again!
