A TRUE HOME AWAY FROM HOME

It's so cliche to say that you don't want to go home at the end of a vacation, but inevitably it always feels good to get back home and resume your normal routine. Not this time. For the first time in my life, I seriously did NOT want to go back home. This house was very comfortable, livable, and truly felt like my own home away from home.
We rented the house for two weeks, along with our two dogs. If you travel with pets, you know how difficult it can be to find nice accommodations without getting gouged on either rent, pet fees or both. That is not the case here. It was perfect! It may look small in the first picture, but don't be fooled. This house has tons of space, with a very large living room/dining room area, a good sized family room, and two spacious bedrooms. The kitchen is a little tight with more than 2 people in there, but is otherwise fine, and is open to the dining room and family room. The private fenced backyard was fantastic, with a HUGE patio, as well as a large landscaped yard (mulched, not grass, so bring a brush to keep your dogs clean of mulch) for the dogs to play in. The house is fully-stocked with dishes, pots & pans, spices, paper items, toiletries, linens, etc., so you pretty much just need your clothes and food to have a very enjoyable vacation. There's even a washer and dryer if you want to pack lightly.
I have to say that the owners, Eliane and Chris, are both very nice people who have their guest's best interest in mind. Eliane called me the day before we were to arrive to let me know there was a broken blind, and that it would be replaced the next day. They took care of it as promised, which gave me an opportunity to meet them in person and have a very enjoyable conversation with them.
Dog owners: There is an AMAZING new dog park just 0.2 miles north of the house inside Bicentennial Park. You MUST take your dogs here! Don't bother taking them anywhere else (especially the beach at Lighthouse Point Park in Ponce Inlet; our dogs got covered in cockle burs there!).
I cannot recommend this house highly enough. I'm so glad we chose it over a condo on the beach, for the extra space, the fenced play area for the dogs, and the quiet laid-back neighborhood, which simply isn't available at the crowded beach resorts. Besides, it's only a two minute walk to the beach, which you can see from the front yard.
Eliane & Chris, thanks for a terrific vacation experience! We'll definitely be back!!
