Wonderful home

May 1, 2014

My husband and I stayed at this home for the month of march. The house is awesome and the owner was extremely cooperative. We especially enjoyed sitting on the dock and my husband fished everyday! A manatee even visited one day. Really great month !

Owner's reply:

I'm so glad you enjoyed the property. And I'm jealous, I've never seen a Manatee there. Please come back again...... Dug

Lovely home in serene location

March 29, 2014

We stayed in this home on Butterfly Lake for two months this winter. The house was very clean and comfortable with lots of fresh linens and towels, and cleaning supplies. With tile floors it was easy to keep it clean and tidy during our stay. There is a lovely screened pool with lots of seating and views of Butterfly Lake. It was cooler and rainier than normal this winter but we were still able to enjoy the outdoors and birdwatching. The neighborhood is pleasant and a wonderful place to take long walks. While the house is about 30 minutes from the beach, I enjoyed the short 10 minute drive to downtown St Petersburg where there is a wonderful bike/walking path along Tampa Bay. Dug was a great host and ensured that our stay was comfortable and pleasant.
