Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your home. It was absolutely amazing. There was more than enough room for us. This was hands down better than anywhere we have ever rented to stay. The set up, to the house is beautiful, I love the color schemes you have going on. The home was very clean, and so welcoming, with everything you need except your food and cloths. We will defiantly be looking into renting again soon. Thank you so much, Christina and Ray

Exceeded my expectations

I expected the house to be nice based on the reviews but it was even better than I had hoped. You could tell that the house has been updated and is clean and well maintained. The bathrooms and kitchen are modern and the refrigerator is large with an ice maker. The kitchen is also well stocked so if you plan to cook there is just about anything you could want there. The house is spacious with nice furniture. The pool was great, pretty large and deep. There was a great view and it is located in a great spot for the river and nearby restaurants and grocery stores. My only comment is that I did not care for the color schemes in some of the home. However, I was just visiting so it really doesn't matter. The owners were great to work with and provided the code to get in. Overall I give this home an A+ and would rent it again in a flash if I need a place in the area.

Fantastic Place

This is our second year returning to the Manatee House and we absolutely love it. It is perfect and the owners are very nice and responsive. The place is always clean and ready for us when we arrive. We already booked it for a third year :)
