Excellent location and fantastic pool

  • 5 of 5

Everything about our stay went smoothly from the prompt an efficient communications with Mary right through to our departure.

The villa is in an excellent location with many nature reserves within a few minutes drive (our main holiday activity is birdwatching - so pretty important to us!). The villa itself is large and bright and has everything we needed.

To pick out a few great highlights - a very large and comfy double bed with a great en-suite shower room; the convenience and security of being able to park in a proper garage and an absolutely excellent swimming pool - a proper one you can do lengths in not one of those tiny, silly-shaped ones you find in so many Mediterranean villas.

All-in-all a great holiday - in no small part down to a superb villa.

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

Mary and Mike are great owners, easy to deal with and they are taking good care of the property. The local managing company was also very responsive and they immediately addressed the couple of minor issues we had. The villa is in a good location, everything is well kept and functional. Definitely a positive experience.

Lovely villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

Firstly Mary the owner was amazing, replying quickly to any questions I had about the villa and location.

The villa is lovely, it was clean and well maintained with 2 large living areas and an open plan kitchen. The bedrooms were large with clean fresh bedding.

Outside there is a large heated pool and plenty of space around the villa. We even saw the tortoise that roams around the villa in the afternoon.

The villa had everything we needed including plenty of towels, wi-fi, cable tv, hair dyers etc

The location was brilliant, pine isle and beach is only 15 minutes away with lovely white sand and warm water.

We also went to see a concert in tampa and caught a flying tigers baseball game.

Disney is around 2 hours drive.

All in all a great experience.

Owner's Response: It is lovely to have so many good comments about the villa and the surrounding area. The nature coast is a beautiful natural part of Florida not to be missed, but still plenty for a family to do in the area, and you can still reach Disney; Seaworld, Universal in about 2 hours.

Having not been to the US before we were a bit concerned as to how everything would go, booking the property, all the relevant info we would need. However, having selected this property we need not to have worried about anything. Mary, the owner, just couldnt do enough to assist us. She answered any questions we had, advised us where we needed to be advised and made the whole experience so simple. The next concern was the villa, just how good would it be. Again, absolutely no need to worry, excellent layout, superbly furnished, everything we needed. The stay was fantastic and being away from the main theme park areas meant we dealt locally with genuine people who treated us so well. Overall we were so impressed we are due to go again this April for three weeks and just cant wait. If you get a chance to use this villa dont miss out, you,ll regret it.

Owner's Response: thank you to Gary for his review of our villa and his kind comments about the help given. I always ensure that people get as much information about the location of the villa and the beautiful surrounding location on the Nature Coast.
