I was excited, we were in Florida, I couldn't wait for someone to enter the front door code, so I wandered around back. And saw the pool inside the privacy fence. So inviting. I wanted to jump in. Then we went in the house. So cute. So stylish. I really felt comfortable and at home. This was going to be nice. Nice big rooms. Nice big kitchen. This will do nicely.

We enter into a large open living area with a coastal theme. A few steps in and I see the newly updated, fully equipped kitchen to my left with the dining area just beyond. Then, I can't help but be drawn to the comfy looking sitting area just inside the sliding doors that lead to that beautiful pool. Oh, and what bedroom are we taking? They both have their own bathrooms. Awesome. One has two queen beds. The other has a king. And the kids? They can have the two sofa sleepers in the living area, a roll-away, and the pack 'n play. Perfect! Okay. Where is that suitcase with my swimming suit? I think I can take a dip before I start supper on the grill that I saw on the patio!

There is room to park 3 cars in the driveway and overflow parking in the street is okay. You are also able to use the garage.

We are prompt at replying to app messages for any questions or needs that you have

This is a residential neighborhood with canals nearby

Quiet streets immediately around our home for peaceful walks, but not too far from bigger roads.

Once your booking is complete, please be aware that we require additional steps to complete your reservation of this property. You will receive a link to our Rental Agreement. Once completed, you will receive a link to our Guest Portal where you will find access to additional information and will be asked to reserve certain free amenities and have the opportunity to purchase "Add ons". A short time before arrival we will also request and require a payment source to reserve a Security Deposit for your stay.

For direct bookings and bookings through services that do not require positive identification in order to book, we will require a photo ID to be provided through the guest portal. This will consist of uploading a scan of your passport or driver's license along with a 'selfie'.

The House Rules are also available for you on the Guest Portal. The House Rules are an easy-to-read addendum to the rental agreement that outlines the information that is applicable to all guests. We will also send you a copy and ask that you download and share this document with all other guests.

We provide additional services offline. We call these Add Ons.

"Add ons" include both certain free amenities and items available for a fee. All can be easily arranged through our Guest Portal. This is the site that you access immediately after you sign our Rental Agreement. We will send you a link. You will be able to: 1) request optional free amenities like setting up a port-a-crib, etc. and 2) select and pay for things like: a late checkout, a supply of breakfast groceries waiting for you in the fridge in case you arrive too late to go to the store, a cleaning by our housekeeper during your stay, electric heat for the pool, etc. If you have questions or can't find these on the guest portal, reach out and ask about any of these items of interest. Our guest portal is a separate system, so purchases will require a separate payment (credit card) arrangement.

We have purchased Damage Protection Coverage on your behalf. This policy covers the first $1500 worth of accidental damage. It excludes damage by unregistered pets and linens. Please let us know right away if anything happens. You would remain responsible for anything beyond this coverage. Please note, while booking you may be offered a 'trip interruption' policy. It's not a damage policy, but may be a good purchase if you are worried about events that might lead to cancellation. We especially recommend it to all of our long-term guests because of the alternate cancellation policy for long-term stays.

For long-term stays during the months of January - April we have a specific cancellation policy. The first 30 days is the deposit. It is due at booking and is non-refundable. The remaining dates are refundable until 60 days before check-in. To reiterate, we recommend that anyone considering a long-term stay purchase a trip interruption insurance policy. Ask and we can refer you.

Because of issues with parties and disruptive events, at this time, Airbnb does not allow gatherings of more than 16 people - even just during the day. We're in agreement with that. If you have a larger group, and you were hoping to make it easier to share the cost of an exclusive home like ours - we're sorry. We aren't interested in alienating our neighbors or having our listing suspended for you.

If you've ever had a pool you know it can take more work sometimes than a once-a-week visit from 'the pool guy'. While you're staying you may need to do a few maintenance things to ensure that it is available when you want it. For example, chlorine evaporates, if there is a heavy rain, it can impact the water chemistry more than the experts may have anticipated and now algae is growing and the pool is getting cloudy, etc. The easiest thing to say is, let us know and we will talk you through what you can do. And none of it is hard. There is more about maintenance in the house manual.

There are security cameras on the front door, the driveway, and near the pool screen doors. But none inside - that would be creepy! We had to install the cameras, not for burglars but because we've had guest counts that exceeded what was reserved. This is not nice. Please be honest. We price based on how many are staying in the home. And we make sure it is a good value for either a retired couple of snowbirds or a big family on an adventure-filled vacation. And, even if you leave our home as clean as when you arrive, as required, the size of the group still makes a big difference in how much time and work our housekeeper has to do with laundry, etc.

And then there are pets. Please don't try to sneak any in without including them in the booking. All pets must be crated if left alone in the house.

Cancellation Policy: One hundred percent (100.00%) of the total booking charges will be refunded if the cancellation is made more than 30 days prior to the arrival date of the reservation. Fifty percent (50.00%) of the total booking charges will be refunded if the cancellation is made more than 15 days prior to the arrival date of the reservation. For cancellations made within 15 days prior to the arrival date, no refund will be issued.

We manage this home for its owners and we love having the opportunity to share it with you. Occasionally we get to bring our kids and grandkids here, and it's perfect for us. So, we hope it's perfect for you. This is what we do for a living. We have a couple of homes that we share and we manage homes for other people doing the same. If you're wondering about buying a vacation home and want to consider sharing it with others, please message us, we'd be glad to talk you through it. If you have a vacation home or a rental home anywhere in the US and wonder if it would make a good vacation or short-term rental, we can help you figure that out as well. Let us know how we can help.
