“Nice getaway retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Very enjoyable stay with the family for a spring break retreat. First some caveats....and they are mentioned in the details of the property, but just a reminder by me. Just because it is a house rental doesn't mean the tax man won't get his fingers in it. 16% taxes added on to the stay, so keep that in mind. If you are older, or have trouble with stairs, maybe not here. Kitchen, baths, bedrooms, main living room are all up a flight of stairs. Not an issue if you are able bodied, but just mentioning it.

The house is very homey. It is not like a museum, very easy to relax. Has a big screen, standard Directv package, and wireless internet. There is a nice pool area at the owner's residence just across the driveway. In March, the water was still pretty frosty, but my daughter braved it.

The grounds are fenced and gated. A couple of very friendly dogs and some indifferent cats will find you if you go outside. If you want to sit by a pool, read a book, and pet a dog, you found your place.

My wife and I traveled with our teenage son and daughter. It is a 2 bedroom place. However, the owners got us a blow up mattress, and the daughter actually set up "camp" in the master closet while the son got the 2nd bedroom. The closet is about the size of a small bedroom, so that worked out well. The beds were comfy.

There were enough towels, sheets, kitchen utensils, and all that. As a big cold cereal eating family, the only thing was what I thought was a lack of cereal eating bowls. We cooked a few meals instead of going out, so that saved us some dollars. A grocery store is about 5 minutes or less away.

There are also some board games and a lot of local books/magazines to thumb thru. The owners were very nice, and had recommendations for eating/touristing. Checkin/checkout were fine.
