This rental was wonderful. The house was clean and complete with many amenities. The location was most amazing, picturesque and private. We had a nice dock to tie our boat and had a wonderful time.

Location location location!!

Fantastic location, loved every minute of staying there, David was there to meet us with a nice cold beer! Not sure you could ever meet a nicer/relaxed guy. Nothing was too much, can't wait to return. David you are a Star! Thank you :)

Glad to make Theresa & Andy feel welcome and to know they enjoyed their vacation.

Peaceful paradise

This property is truly a secluded paradise. Although the weather in November can be rainy and windy, it did not stop us from enjoying this amazing location. We caught snapper everyday from the dock and thoroughly enjoyed the heated hot tub and pool. We were amazed at how peaceful and secluded the home was and even enjoyed sharing the patio with the many iguanas that would come right up next to us to bask in the sun. We did not get a chance to use the kayaks because of the wind, but know this would have been a perfect place because of the variety of the bay, the lagoon or the ocean to kayak in. We would definitely return to the peninsular house and highly recommend it for families or for a romantic getaway.

Wow - what a wonderful place!

What can you say? The house is incredible and clean. Decks, hammocks, kayaks, fishing equipment, dock, swimming pool, hot tub. On and on. David Thomas was great to work with. Anytime I called he would return my call immediately. My wife and I go to Florida the first week of November yearly. We will definitely return to the Peninsularhouse.

Excellent Property!!!

We stayed for a week at the Peninsular house and were extremely happy with everything! The house was exactly as advertised; it was clean and had everything we needed including kayaks, extra bedding, beach towels, kitcheware, and lots of ice. The house was close to everything we wanted to do including snorkeling and fishing trips. My son caught so many fish off the lighted dock including snapper, barraculda and a huge tarpon (about 35 lbs?). It was a wonderful setting for a family vacation - the pool was an added bonus. We thoroughly enjoyed our stayed. Only complaint - we had to leave and go back to IL!

nice family, it was a pleasure to have the Dementral family to stay

Owner Supplied Testimonials

After staying for 2 weeks in April 2006, Scott, Sheridy, Dustin & Chance wrote: Dear Dave, We wanted to tell you what a wonderful vacation we had at the peninsular house. It is some of the best money we have ever spent. The private and peaceful surroundings, clean-fresh air and awesome sunrises and sunsets were just what we needed. We had all the comforts of home and found the house to be very comfortable and relaxing. The tarpon fishing from the dock was great even though they evaded our lines and we didn't catch any it was fun trying. We found the marine life in the area to be awesome and highly recommend snorkeling around Sister Rock Island. We found all the local merchants to be most friendly and accommodating and enjoyed some great food and shopping. We will certainly recommend the Peninsular House to our friends and would highly recommend it to anybody that is looking for a relaxing vacation. We look forward to returning next year
