Stayed twice
This property was very comfortable, clean and easy to get to from I-75. On our trip to Florida from Ontario, we stayed on the way there and on the way back. Close to restaurants for take away meals and kitchen was well appointed.

Traveling to Gasparilla Island, Florida
We had some issues pinning down our stopping point on our drive from Ontario to Florida. The owner of this lovely home was so accommodating with our last minute booking. We had a very comfortable stay and enjoyed this comfortable home and local restaurant take away dinner.

FAB Home Away From Our Fab Home
We loved the home. Roomy and homey warmth. The beds were “the best” says my son. We all agree. Plenty of coffee provided! We gave this home lots of love-so easy to love. The hosts were always available and worked with us when our dates changed 2 times. We will be back.
Stayed 3 nights in Dec 2021
