Indoors, tiled floors are a must for beachside living and the home features great furniture throughout. Sleeping six, this house provides space enough for both time together and quiet time alone. New flat-screen LCD TVs and high-speed wireless Internet are included. Choose to watch a movie or learn all about the manatees you might spot in the intra-coastal.
The family’s casual cottage ambiance shows off form and function in white bamboo furniture, with plenty of comfy seating options. Relax in the sunny family room, finding a convenient glass-topped table wherever you reach out to place a drink. The comfortable living room furniture will be popular even with guests. White furniture and accents sit below a powerful ceiling fan. Air conditioning is available when it gets hot.
A more formal living room also has great furniture - deep olive green couches invite you to take a nap or put your feet up. Decorative silk accent cushions and a soft area rug underfoot make it an elegant space in which to entertain, play cards or have coffee.
The big family kitchen is finished in white with decorative tiles to add interest. Arrive with only a promise that, on this vacation, you’ll live to eat - all kitchen utensils and cookware are provided. A wide fridge/freezer and new oven/stove top are ready for your designated chef to make magic with local fresh seafood.
Family and friends can sit at the breakfast bar, perhaps sipping a fresh cup of coffee or being put to good use preparing a fruit salad made with local fruit. The kitchen opens to a sunny dining area where six can plan a day’s adventure around a rectangular glass-topped table.
Your delightful primary bedroom is sunny and neutral. While it has lots of furniture for great storage and organization, the room is large and feels very spacious. Unpack in the large closet and two dressers, before climbing onto the large bed and watching some TV. Your en-suite bathroom boasts high-end finishings and provides the vacation decadence you deserve. The second large bedroom has 2 twin beds (sleeps 2) and also new furniture. Our family room also has 1 queen sleeper couch with new Sealy Mattress (sleeps 2). Plus, all bedrooms have good sized closets and both bathrooms are full size and have showers.
Nearby, why not visit the famous Warm Mineral Springs? Opened in 1946, the lake’s potent water is said to cure ailments including stress, arthritis and sore muscles - a bit like a bath in Epsom salts with much better views. You’re welcome to partake and swim in this hourglass-shaped lake where water is consistently 87°F.

There were some minor issues with the standard of pre-rental cleaning (evidence of some careless cleaning practices) but easily sorted out. Certainly it didn't spoil our stay at all. And, I hasten to add, this was not the fault of the owners.
As regards the rental agency, while the local agent was a pleasant and helpful young man, the actual booking process was not as straightforward as it ought to have been. Prior to our original booking, there was some considerable confusion around the price quoted on the VRBO website and the price we were charged. This almost put us off renting the property as no one was able to explain satisfactorily the discrepancy between the prices quoted. Fortunately, we persisted and I'm very glad we did. Before we left, we had a telephone conversation with the local agent and asked that someone contact us to discuss our renting the property again next year. Disappointingly though, no one has been in touch with us.
Perhaps the only drawback for a family staying there is that the pool area is quite small and as there are only two sun-loungers, it may be tricky to accommodate everyone comfortably. Otherwise though, this property is worth serious consideration.
