We loved the house it was perfect when we arrived, the house was all clean and presented beautifully and the pool was lovely and warm, the kids went straight in, imagine their faces when I produced the blow up killer whale we found in the garage, we have added to your pool toy collection with a large alligator called Snappy! The pool area was so comfortable with Jeff being able to BBQ while the kids swam and I sipped vino, it was the nicest pool areas of any place we stayed.
The lounge area was lovely and comfortable, really nice place to relax after a full day out, with the high light for my husband to be told that channel 71 has UK Premiership football LIVE!!! He said you should put this into your marketing information as lots of people want uk football, he might be right, anyway he loved it, and with the time difference the game times work perfectly. Regards, Sam & Jeff Hocking
Just leaving Sarasota. We've had a fantastic time in your very beautiful villa - many thanks! Mark
We had a fantastic time in Sarasota, and your house was excellent, with more equipment/saucepans etc than we could hope for. Even egg-cups, which strangely, we had not found in previous houses! We really did not want to leave. Howard
