Rich and Chris,

Thank you for sharing your home.  We were very comfortable and appreciated all of the comforts of home in the  SW Florida.  It was even nicer when we had 80+ degrees and it was snowing at home.  The pool was well used by our 8 year old son. Thank you again.  Jody and Rob, Parry Sound, Ontario

We don't want to leave!...Any question I had from ways to purchase a similar property, tithe trivial of what bait works best to catch bass in this beautiful lake. ....For a whole month we just relaxed! This home, this city, this weather was just the right ingredients.

After this venture I feel that Rich and I have become friends! Thank you for your generosity and friendship.

Madeleine and Hans Jergelius Lerceon, Sweden

Chris and Rich,

Although we didn't arrive until late Monday night both Nancy and enjoy every minute of our stay, thanks for making it possible. We must say it was easy to see the thoughtfulness and planning that went into this your bit of paradise. We spent lazy moments late at night on the wicker chair overlooking the pool admiring how beautiful the lights reflected off the water. Of course we took in most of the sights that your other guests mentioned but only after pampering ourselves with a gold fashioned 'southern breakfast'.

Loved the design & openness of your house & how it was appointed and weren’t you the thoughtful one with the items stashed in the drawers, closets, etc that made our stay so very comfortable and enjoyable. You can expect us to return and do it all again.
Charlie & Nancy- Danville, Virginia

Thank you for another wonderful stay in this lovely house. Perhaps we will return again!

Your home is just perfect for spending great holidays that we had here. Nothing has been forgotten and your house is fully equipped, very well furnished and designed and on top of this very well located in this quiet area. We enjoyed beaches in FMB and going out in some nice places to get food. My family and I want to thank you for giving us the opportunity to spend some time in your wonderful villa. Hopefully we aim to spend another time here in the future.

We have had a wonderful week in your beautiful home. The setting is perfect and ti has been a pleasure staying in a home which has been cared for so well. All comforts have been thought of.  

On our last day, today, we discovered Lovers Key Beach which was truly lovely. Very unspoiled-watching a stingray jumping out of the water having fun…..We will return and hopefully for two weeks next time. Thank you once again.

Winfried and Philipp Stubbe- Bod Nunstereifel, Germany

Second time we have rented your home, it’s wonderful. Everything is first class, we love to watch birds come and go to the lake. Sitting by the pool and watching the lake is the best. The computer is great for finding places to go and activities to do. We enjoy the beaches and found Captiva Cruses. We saw beaches, Cayo Costa Park, and Dolphin Adventures is great.
