This home is perfectly positioned for much of what the Florida Gulf Coast has to offer the discerning holiday maker. It is a superb venue for two or more couples and children. In fact the owners struggle to find time there, since it is so popular with returning renters!!
Space galore, inside and out. Plenty of room to stretch out and relax by the heated (optional) pool. Sunbathe whilst watching the wildlife in and over the lake.
