Quite and nice neighbourhood close to the beaches

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and enjoyed the house that had everything needed. Each morning took a run to the beaches close by, kanoeing from the dock and enjoyed the backyard. Coconut Jacks became our favourite restaurant and at Melissa’s ice cream parlour we tasted the wonderful ice cream.

Ken was an excellent host and helped immediately when there was a question or problem.

A Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

We had a marvelous month at the house on Gary. The location is perfect. I took a daily walk to the beach. (It's about 7,000 steps for those of you who count.) The great room is on the small side, but everything is very clean and functional. The master bedroom is sizable and has plenty of storage space. The second bedroom has twin beds and a nice-size closet and one bureau. Everything you need is there: sheets, towels, pots, pans, dishes, essential pantry items, a coffee pot, etc. There are fans in the rooms and the AC works beautifully. The washer and dryer work well and are full sized. We loved the screened-in back patio. It was the perfect place for morning coffee. I also loved sitting on the canal dock watching the fish jump and the birds flying around. On our last day, we even saw two manatee.

Ken & Beatrice are warm and welcoming. They treat you like guests of the family. They are a delightful, young couple, and we wish them well in their ventures.

If you're looking for a pretentious location, this is not for you. If you want a comfortable vacation in a terrific location, then consider this VRBO. Our month there was delightful.

Great Location and Hosts

  • 4 of 5

We rented this for the month of Feburary. The house was more than adequate for my husband and myself and was full equipped should our children and grandchildren been able to join as as had happened in the past. Ken and Beatrice made us feel most welcome with nice touches, such as a welcome basket of goodies, as well as making it quite clear that they were available as needed. As everything worked well it was not necessary contact them. The location was ideal and even with a busy street across the canal we did not hear any traffic in the house and could enjoy the fish and wild life on the canal. The only drawback was the fact that this house has been divided into two units and additional insulation is necessary to mitigate conversations, tv's etc. between the units. The neighbor was fairly quiet but did have a loud voice and one could hear phone conversations. As we are a bit hard of hearing, too much concern was paid on our part to not disturb with a loud TV. I would recommend this as a nice place to enjoy the Florida sunshine.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here this past Christmas (2016) for 9 nights and had a great time at this perfectly located house. The house does have everything you need for the beach (wonderful thick beach towels!), sitting on the lawn overlooking the canal (comfortable lounge chairs), and very nicely decorated house. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and made the couple of meals I prepared there a breeze.

We walked to the Fish House a couple of times for dinner (great food!) and we took the canoe out in the canal a few times. We saw some manatees swimming in the canal right next to the dock! Truly magical!

Ken was a superb host, so friendly and nice. My husband, son, dad and brother even did a half day fishing charter with him and had a fantastic time and caught a bunch of fish.

Additionally, Ken was super fast to refund our deposit. We hope to stay here again if we return.

Great location & very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place in a great location with easy access to the beach, shops & restaurants. The house is very comfortable with everything you need for a short or long term stay! And you can watch the fish jump (or fish!!) in the canal out back. Owner was responsive and readily available. Thank you!!
