“Fabulous”
Reviewed March 6, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This was an opportunity to stay in a quiet & peaceful environment for 14 days. The unit provided all we needed plus some, we felt at home, we're able to easily sleep in & drink our coffee overlooking the water. Well located for us to visit many parks, gardens and attractions. The kitchen accommodated us for meals when we chose to eat in. We have traveled many times to this area to visit relatives & friends. This is our preferred stay versus a hotel which is way to busy. Have a laundry to accommodate longer stays. Owners were very accommodating and helpful.

“Thank Goodness Not another gaudy hotel - The BEST place we have ever stayed and we WILL return!!”
Reviewed September 15, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Me and my partner wanted a place with all the amenities of home and no hubbub from noisy hotels and cars coming and going. Our only plan was to sit and relax in peace and quiet and that is EXACTLY what we got!

The beautiful sunset and moonlight on the waterfront were spectacular as we sat in or near the pool for most of our visit. There was plenty of shade and comfortable seating during the daytime.

The property is very secluded and decorated with subtle tropical hints but not over the top "Hey I'm in Florida or Hawaii" themes. Plenty of gorgeous and even some unusual plants/foliage to hide us away. Plus plenty of entertainment from the wildlife (every thing from small lizards doing pushups to birds and fish on the waterfront).

The bed was BEYOND comfortable, actually every piece of furniture in this place was selected for comfort - yes we tried them all!

The only thing we did not like about this property was having to LEAVE!!

Sharon and her husband are fantastic hosts, very friendly and gracious people. Their only goal was to ensure were left to our vacation/peace and tranquility, offered instant assistance when requested and were generous enough to let us inside their personal residence upstairs to fully take in the splendor of the 5 story Dome - TOO Exciting too miss if given the opportunity for a peek.

I could go on for days (well I have since my return home and my friends and family are super jealous of this little gem we found).

If you have the chance to vacation here, it is well worth the trip!! Forget hotels go to the Geodesic Dome, you will be more than glad you did!

Thank you Sharon & Ralph for creating such an inviting and comfortable getaway!

All our Best,
Jackie & Chuck

“Paradise Found!”

As big fans of unconventional vacation spots, ie: B&B's, cabins, homes as opposed to resorts, hotels and the like, we were thriled that this spot more than lived up to it's previous reviews. Wonderful owners / hosts, beautiful grounds / location, peaceful and private accomodations, easy and quick access to the surrounding communities, every amenity save for food, and clothes made for a relaxing and pleasurable stay. Although the weather was a little too cool for the pool, the attached spa was just bracing enough to take the heat off from sunning on the clean patio. The views of the lagoon, luscious vegetation, well kept grounds and access to a large nature preserve just by walking out to the end of the driveweay added to the sense that this was a paradise that would beckon us back for future stays. The owners Ralph and Sharon, who built this home and were wonderful hosts, have created a little piece of heaven just waiting to be shared. This is a not to be missed experience if you are ever in the area. We had a great time and are looking forward to our next visit.

After spending four whirlwind days at Disney, this was the perfect place to unwind and take it slow. Located in a quiet nook in Holiday, we felt so much at home and at ease, with the luxury of a private pool, beautifully landscaped surroundings, just steps away from the dock, the waterway and nature park. The place was meticulously clean, with all the comforts of home - lots of room with spacious sleeping accommodations, flat screens with cable, free wifi, a well equipped kitchen, even a washer & dryer! Best of all, Sharon and Ralph were wonderful hosts, very helpful yet unobtrusive. We certainly won't hesitate to come back and stay with them again!

Our stay was fabulous. We usually alwasy go someplace completley different each summer for vacation. We will definitely return here for another stay.
We stayed for an entire week and it was myself, my husband and our teenage son. Ralph and Sharon were wonderful. They are very helpful and completely unobtrusive. Your choice as to how much or how little interaction you have with them. They were always willing to answer any questions we had, and gave us great ideas of places to go visit.
The apartment is in excellent condition, very nice, well laid out. Very comfortable bed and furniture. Loved having a washer and dryer so at the end of the week did not have to travel home with dirty clothes.
The property is absolutley gorgeous with all of the flowering trees, bushes and plants. The pictures on the site do not do it justice. Our teenage son loved taking the canoe out in the bay and paddling around, fishing and just sight-seeing. The pool was so nice and refreshing, my husband and I would get up early and have some alone time swimming while our teenage slept in.
It is so close to so many attractions. We would hang out there during the heat of the day and then go to the beach and sight-see in the late afternoons and evenings.
