On Feb 24, 2018 we had booked this property through Flip Key for February 2019 and paid the deposit and the booking was accepted by the owner. Now on March 25, 2018 we find out that our booking has been canceled and our money refunded. In our opinion, the owner got an offer for more money than she agreed to accept from us. We find her very unreliable.
The house is in a good location, plenty of shops and restaurants in the area that cater for everyone's taste . The beautiful gulf beaches are only about half an hours drive and if you fancy a day out you have Busch gardens about an hour away . Lots of things to see and do to fill your days . We used the bikes provided and also took the kayak out on the Braden river . The owners are nearby if you have any problems , very nice and helpful
Nice cozy place to spend our anniversary. 4 star vs 5 only due to cable issue and door locking issue.
I can not fault the owner for the doors. The owners were out of town and the neighbor was our contact person. The neighbor was dealing with some difficult family challenges and was rightfully distracted.
Once the owner contacted me she was able to fix the cable issue and gave me detailed instructions on the locking mechanism.
The area is very remote; not much in the immediate area to do. The property does have a kayak and bikes available.
Just sitting on the porch watching the rain was breathtaking.
What a beautiful property! All of the amenities we needed and only a short drive to shopping. Many gulf beaches are just a pleasant drive away. We sat on the dock most evenings and witnessed absolutely wonderful sunsets. Very romantic. Colorful roseate spoonbills were feeding along the river tide line. We talk about our time there very often. We would like to return some day.
