Had a wonderful holiday. The home was very well equipped and the owners contacted us numerous times to check if all was ok. We loved sitting out in the lanai watching the various birds and wildlife around the pond. The location is not too far from the beaches and other attractions. The local clubhouse has a gym and a large heated pool that we used quite often. Stoneybrook golf course is part of the development and is a fun course to play. A very large outlet malls is about 5 miles away. We liked the fact that the community is gated. The home is nicely furnished with 2 new flatscreen tv's. Had our grandchildren down for 2 weeks and they loved it. Would rent again.

Wonderful, delightful property. Very clean and well equipped. Very responsive owners who replaced non- functioning fridge within 24 hours. Also, resolved several other issues immediately. We were 2 couples and would have been more comfortable if there were 2 master suites. Not the owners fault. Very impressed with the community, location, amenities offered, and the maintenance of the surrounding properties and quality of the area.
