Perfect get away

October 28, 2015

Our vacation rental was a perfect little piece of the charm of "old Florida". Spotless and beautifully appointed with everything you would need for a quick get away or an extended stay, right down to frosted mugs and a bag of ice! We will definitely be back!

Peaceful Place to Stay

September 19, 2014

The location on the River is beautiful as well as the manicured garden you are greeted by when you arrive. Mickey and Marie are very accommodating and sweet. The place was clean and the online pictures do not give it justice. I was amazed how nice it was. Our family will definitely be back to stay!

Beautiful Property and Fabulous Host

September 4, 2013

Our stay was WONDERFUL!! The home is beautiful and well maintained and incredibly clean! We have looked for a place to stay when we go fishing and now we have found it. Mickey & Marie are so much fun and entertaining! We so enjoyed our time and the fellowship that we had with Mickey & Marie. The beauty of the river was breathtaking and so peaceful. The dock is lovely and you will never tire of looking at all the different flowers and plants that Mickey & Marie have on their property. Thanks again for a great trip and we look forward to coming back soon! Randy & Darlene Bob & Lisa

05/03/06 Positive My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in this property for two weeks in April, 2006. We were very happy with every aspect of the apartment and surroundings - and the hospitality of the landlord is super. The floating dock was perfect for us - allowed us to tie up our kayaks and shallow draft powerboat. It was a bit too early in the season for the best inshore fishing, but we caught redfish, trout, and several other species. Tremendous wildlife along the river - ospreys, bald eagles, river otters, manatees, porpoises, gators, turtles, herons, cranes, and more. Flora along the lower parts of the river are diverse and wild. We're going back!
