“Wonderful pet friendly home with amenities”

Reviewed 29 Mar 2017

This was the perfect place for us on our vacation. We wanted a pet friendly home in this area and it exceeded our expectations. The home is spacious and beautiful, loved the huge kitchen. We only had 3 people when our son returned home, but it would easily give adults/kids their own space. The pool area was wonderful to sit in the sun then take a dip. Didn't fish much but they were jumping in the canal. The grill was an excellent addition and we used it every night. We didn't do many activities in the area but Nichole had a lot of recommendations. We want to go to the drive in next year. I would recommend this home to anyone!

“Great family get-away”

Reviewed 17 Jan 2017

Lovely three bedroom home with a beautiful kitchen about a half hour out of Tampa. Nichole was a gracious hostess and made sure that the house and our experience there was all we wanted. As it was in December, she even hooked up a gas heater for the pool (which is usually heated by solar energy.) We had a great time!

Owner's reply: Kathryn, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We know things are always a little crazy around the holidays. It is most helpful for our future guests to have these kind of reviews. Thank you and we look forward to serving your family again in the future. Nichole

“Great place”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2016

Our initial rental was cancelled three days before our vacation, luckily this property was available. It was clean, with a pool and near to all the attractions. The owner was a delight. Thank you Nicole for the hospitality, our family enjoyed this property very much! I highly recommend this vacation rental.

“Wonderful & Relaxing”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2016

We recently stayed at Nichole's home and appreciated the relaxing environment. The home was ready for our arrival, including maps and recommendations that Nichole provided. Nichole was very accommodating with our late arrival and stopped by to answer questions and provide assistance. The home was nicely furnished - plenty of space for our family of 6. Kitchen and laundry amenities were perfect, with a nice supply of towels (always a consideration for our family). The home is in a quiet area, in close proximity to grocery and local restaurants. Our kids loved by pool and we were pleased with the patio furniture and "beach gear" that was available for our use. The house is about an hour's drive to Florida beaches and attractions. Will stay here again for our next getaway to the sunshine state!

“Great spring break”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2016

We had a great trip. We celebrated our daughters senior year in high school with her and some friends. We loved the heated pool. There was plenty of room for all of us to spread out. I would definitely recommend this house. We had to drive a little bit to get to some of the things we wanted to see but it was nice to be away from the big crowds.

Owner's reply: Karen, Thanks for taking the time to post! This is very helpful to future guests. Yes, we are a quiet middleclass family town on the southern shores of Tampa Bay. We are away from the crowds and central to various attractions like theme parks and gulf beaches. nichole

“Great Vacation”

Reviewed 30 Mar 2016

We were lucky enough to spend 2 weeks here. The area is great and the house is even better. Nicole has done everything to make to make this a very relaxing vacation.

Owner's reply: We appreciate your feedback and know you will be returning next year, trying to contact other regular guests and secure the dates you desire. It was a pleasure to have your family as guests. Nichole

“Yes would rent again”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2015

My wife and I loved the home, and the pool. Didn't give it 5 stars because we don't think anything is perfect. Plus Nichole ask of not too. Would stay there again in a heartbeat if we were to go to Florida.

Owner's reply: Don and Peggy, Thank you for taking the time to send a review! To better explain star rating.....I was telling Don and Peggy, that I agree with them that the house is wonderful for what it is! We are a middleclass, family, lived in home, in a like neighborhood surrounded by loving, helpful people. For those that have pristine homes, they would probably not rate it 5 stars. Great neighbor helpers include Don, Tammy, Neil, and another neighbor Tammy. Surrounded by caring neighbors.

“relaxing family vacation”

Reviewed 31 Mar 2015

great house for a large family to get together & relax. quiet peaceful house the only reason not a five star is that to get to any beaches Clearwater, St Pete's, Siseta Keys you drive an hour or hour & half depending on traffic. Also while playing cards on patio enjoying the sunset you need to remember while you are on vacation that the neighbors are not so quiet by 9 p.m. the owner was THE BEST taking me to Sam's club recommending Circles we loved the food, beaches, etc Nichole is probably the kindest person we have ever rented from & this was our 12 time in 5 states just can not say enough about her organization to detail that your stay is PERFECT, it was worth the driving!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Owner's reply: Laurie, Thank you for your informative review. I do wish to say while our closest beach is just 1.5 miles from the home, it was closed to be refurbished during your visit. Unfortunately the county was not courteous enough to give us notice of this. There are also 2 small beaches about 5 miles to the south. Big gulf beaches are typically about 45 minutes, but it was spring break during your stay. No other complaints in 10 years of noise from neighbors, poss. another home with spring breakers
