Beautiful get away

My husband and myself and 4 kids stayed here for spring break and it was a wonderful set up. The house is beautiful and very clean. The back yard was amazing. We did not leave the first 4 days we were there because the kids were so entertained with all the stuff this wonderful place had to offer. The dolphins visited every morning. We are from Michigan so seeing all the different wild live was amazing. I will definitely be re booking here, it was so much more comfortable then a stuffy hotel and totally worth the money. I don't think we spent a lot of time in the house other than to sleep. I would recommend this house to anyone planning to stay in the area.

This home was perfect for our family vacation. The fish were biting and the weather was unseasonably warm for December so we made great use of the pool. The home was very comfortable and better than we had even hoped. The location was very convenient for accessing Tarpon Springs and Honeymoon Beach. Mary Lou and Henry are very gracious people.

The Sigmon's loved their vacation

Mary Lou and Henry, Thank you so much for renting your home to us. It was a perfect vacation. We loved meeting you and the house was everything we wanted and more. It was so relaxing sitting by the pool and we loved fishing on the pier. The house was big enough that we could get away from the crowd if we needed to and the master bedroom had a fantastic view. There were lots of placed to explore around the area and the dining was great. We will definitely be back! Be sure to look us up when you are in North Georgia. We would love to go out to dinner with you.

Thanks Cathy for your nice review...I am so glad your family had a good time..I feel like I have know you forever...We have a lot in common...I hope you guys made it home ok...After you left my daughter and her family came down for vacation, they caught a big flounder off the dock and my friend caught a barracuda not far from the house and they also saw some manatee's by the dock. You brought good luck to the house!! "we want you back" LOL See you in the Mountains..soon I hope.

Simply Amazing

Dear Marylou & Henry, Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful home with us. When we opened the door we were in awe. The view of the pool & canal was amazing, there were a few lites on in case we arrived late and music was playing inside and out. The house is well maintained and clean and everything was better than described. We enjoyed meeting you both and the information you gave us on the house, area restaurants, beaches, & things to see came in handy. Sam"s and Get Hooked were great places to eat. After our morning coffee we would go kayaking (once we saw a manatee & a dolphin) - then we would enjoy the heated pool before we went out exploring. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable week and we hated to leave but we are hoping to come back next year. We highly recommend this property....you will NOT be disappointed! Thanx again Steve & Diane

ML, My mother, sister, and I had the most relaxing vacation ever at your beautiful home. So nice that we each had our own 'space.' meaning our own bedroom and bathroom. I had the master, and it was huge along with the little balcony facing the bird sanctuary. I loved sitting there. Your home is so spacious that sometimes the three of us would not know where the others were. :) Enjoyed sitting by the pool, on the dock next to the water, and the balcony above the canal. Your pool was heavenly, too. Just like swimming in a nice, warm bath. We did make it to the Sponge Docks. VERY interesting place to experience. The Flea Market just to the south was quite an experience, too. The area seafood was also delicious. Thank you so very much for one of the nicest vacations ever. We are talking about going back in a year. Mary Ellen, Carol, and Jan

Great rental home

This rental home met all of our expectations and then some. The owners were very caring and gracious and we had all the comforts of home. The pool was our favorite part and being able to see gorgeous sunsets daily was a delight. The canal and bird preserve was a definite plus. We would rent again in the future.

good house to relax

The house is spacious and beautiful. Kids enjoy the pool and kayaking on the canal most. It makes me to dream of buying a similar house when I retire one day!

The Perfect Vacation!!!

Hi Mary Lou! Thank you so much for such a perfect vacation! The home fit our vacation needs perfectly! With the fishing dock right in the back and the comfortable swimming pool too, we could not have asked for better! The house was beautifully set up and well stocked for us. The supermarket was nearby, so we were able to enjoy a lovely vacation without driving more than ten minutes away from the house durring the entire stay. Also, thank you so much for taking us in on such late notice. We appreciate the hospitality you extended towards us. Thank you, and we hope to see you again in the future! The Zweig Family

This was the best get away weekend. We made it a ladies wkend. The place was perfect we all had our own rooms and bathrooms. Watching the sunset was great. The home was so clean and yet comfortable. There were even tvs in every room. We are planning an even larger event for another great weekend and plan on using this place as it is so perfect. Everything you can think of is real close by yet it is peaceful when you retire in the evening I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great place to stay and have a wonderful time

Shelly Mossman


Great Vacation

Like home away from home, really comfortable and spacious. The pool is perfect and the boat dock on the canal leading to the Gulf provided many hours of kayaking fun. The house was so clean and big enough for all 9 of us each bedroom has it's own bath. Just Perfect!

Jami Legg


Dream come true....

To be honest we planned a trip to Florida with a variety of different things to do. But once we got to the house, we stayed there 95% of the time. Having young children sometimes makes it difficult but they were happy the whole trip. It was so beautiful watching the birds every morning and the sun setting over the Gulf every evening. Collecting shells, catching lizards, swimming and kayaking, The whole trip was amazing and long over due! This home was perfect and spacious for us and the other three families that came with us. Will defiantly love to go again in the future and would recommend this property!
