“Perfection in a vacation rental”

Reviewed 30 Sep 2019

We've been renting this beautiful home for 11 years. It's our vacation Paradise!! The owners are very caring, and responsive to our needs/requests. The area is convenient to beaches, stores, restaurants. The neighborhood is quiet, and friendly. The pool is perfect after a day out. We love seeing the neighborhood gopher turtles. Our only complaint - too many people have found how wonderful this rental is, and the calendar fills up fast. Rent from Paul & Wendy and you'll return year after year also.

Owner's reply: Luv ya, Sue!!!

“Perfect, as described 'BLISS' indeed”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2018

You never really know what you are going to get until you actually walk through the door. As we entered to the soft playing music we new we had chosen well. We spent 4 weeks here and really enjoyed our stay. The house had everything you could possibly need including two great cycles which we often used. The welcome basket of treats and wine was a nice touch adding to the care that Paul & Wendy ensure in preparing it for guests. We hope to return next year to enjoy again a great vacation rental Thanks Paul & Wendy

Owner's reply: Absolutely EXCELLENT renters!!! Hope to see you again soon!

“Perfect Get-away !”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2017

Me and my wife spent our honeymoon here and we had a blast!. The house itself was immaculate and very cozy. Everything was perfect for us! The pool was amazing as well as the privacy surrounding it. Paul and Wendy were great host, they gave us a bottle of wine and a delicious fruit/snack basket upon arrival. They were very thoughtful also by giving us a Wedding card. The "Blissful Cottage" lived up to its name, we will definitely return here for another vacation. Thanks again for everything Paul and Wendy! Adam and Lori Flora

Owner's reply: It was wonderful having Adam and Lori as our guests during their very special first week as husband and wife. We hope to see them again soon. Congrats, Adam & Lori! We wish you a long and happy life together!!! Paul & Wendy K.

“Home Away From Home”

Reviewed 11 Apr 2017

Our 3.5 month stay at "Bliss Cottage" was amazing. The house was everything we hoped it would be. It was very clean and well equipped. The pool was very nice and refreshing, especially after a round of golf. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. It is located close to the beaches, bike paths, parks, a lot of quality golf courses, shopping and restaurants. Always something to do! Wendy and Paul have equipped the house with many extras, including bikes, pool toys, and a vast collection of books and movies. We look forward to next year's stay. Thank you Wendy and Paul!

Owner's reply: Arleen and Dennis were exceptional renters. They left the property in pristine condition and always took excellent care of everything...including helping us resolve a glitch with the internet service. Many thanks, Arleen & Dennis. We look forward to your return soon!!!

“Great home”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2016

We had a great stay in this home.. Very beautiful house.. It was what we hoped it would be. Not too far from the beaches. Great location.

“Awesome Winter away Home”

Reviewed 5 Apr 2016

From the moment we arrived until 3 months later when we left we had a great time in this home. the pool was great, the house spotless, and the owners were very attentive to anything that we needed. The area and neighborhood is very tranquil, quiet, and relaxing. Englewood beach was fantastic, you must pay for parking (.75 per hour) however we got a three month pass for $25.00 at the Charlotte county Clerk's office. Great restaurants were close by as was Publix and Wal-Mart.

“A truly FANTASTIC rental!”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2016

We stayed here for 11 nights over Christmas and loved every moment! We have rented other homes in Florida and this one is by far our favorite! It was super clean and had all of the comforts of home! It is close to stores and a short drive to the beach. There were plenty of beach items for our use as well as 2 bikes! I had the pleasure to meet Paul upon our arrival and he is truly a very nice man that made us feel very comfortable and welcomed! We even received a Christmas card on the door from them! We will highly consider contacting Paul and Wendy for a future stay!! Thank you again Paul and Wendy for allowing us the use of you home for our vacation! We hope you have a blessed Year! Carrie, Bob and Clair

Amazing week at Wendy & Paul's "Bliss Cottage". We loved he tranquil setting, yet so close to amazing beaches, walking/cycling trail, restaurants, shopping etc. Wendy & Paul ensured everything was just perfect for us. We will definitely be back!

Owner's reply: Lynn and her friends were delightful renters...we want 'em back again! Thanks, Lynn!

“Lovely spot to stay”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. The area is quiet and neighbours friendly. The pool was wonderful to dip into to cool off or sip a drink and read a book by. Paul and Wendy were excellent to deal with and they have a great place, which is well equipped with best seller books and movies. No need to bring any with you. Bikes are available and there are bike paths nearby as well as many golf courses. The bed was very comfy and the kitchen was well equipped. We liked it so much we booked again for next year.
