Great house and location. Very much enjoyed the private view from the bay (especially wildlife like pelicans, cranes, and jumping fish). The neighborhood seemed very friendly and appreciate a gentleman who warned us about seasonal vultures that would circle in numbers. Besides that occasional issue, the house and location
was fantastic :)
The house is much more than the pictures show... warm pool, very private, close to lots of places. Best ever
As soon as we walked in I said "Man we are going to have to come here next year. The house was bigger and better than we expected. The only bad thing was the nats eat us alive. Fishing was awesome.
We picked from the Internet for the wonderful view over Palma Sola Bay and it was everthing we hoped for. Spent a lot of time emulating Otis Redding, yes you got it Sittin on the dock. While there we saw mullet jumping, Ospreys fishing and dolphins swimming all just outside the back door. Or you could view them from the pool just as easily. Now to be honest I have stayed in better equipped properties in the area over the years but the property contains all the basics for a great holiday. It's well equipped with games a jigsaws and the like but you would do well to find them, part of the lounge suite is an otterman and they are inside there. Which brings me nicely onto my next point information about the area, this is the only place I have stayed in in the area that was not awash with brochures for everything that is going on in the area, I know the letting agents have a portal but we found it conflicted with the owners information in the property and was focuses on AMI when there is so much more in the area. I would have been happier if the place was equipped with a safe and as an ex policeman I think the general security of the property could do with a second look. I will be very specific to the agents about this. No reading materials in the property so for those who follow me I have left a pile of the books my wife and I got through while Sittin on the dock. None of this is bad though just little pointers to help those that follow. We have realy enjoyed our stay and I am sure those that follow will love the place. We never use the same place twice, life's too short but I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday.
