    Great Beach Front Location!

    The house was beautiful! The beach front location made it perfect for us to go back and forth with the kids. We loved our time together on the beach! Except for.....there was an internet interruption the day we arrived due to a storm which allowed us to truly disconnect, although we needed to work. After asking for assistance several times throughout the week, nobody came to reset the internet or tv's with the correct passwords. We had no service at the home the entire 5 day stay.

    Great spot!

    In spite of stormy and windy weather, we had a great time at this house for the week. We loved the proximity to the bird sanctuary and wildlife refuge with gators. The house was perfectly equipped for our needs and comfortable in most every way.
