This house was absolutely amazing
This house was absolutely amazing! It's a perfect get away suited with great amenities. We loved having the canal for fishing and kayaking. The screened in pool was an amazing place to relax along with the hammock and lounge chairs. The updated kitchen and bathrooms were fantastic. I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a wonderful getaway.
Clean and spacious house
Exactly as described. Clean and spacious house with a pool and anything you could possibly need from kitchen appliances to bath towels. 10/10 recommend!!
Nice place in a convenient canal-side location
Nice place in a convenient canal-side location. Great amenities. While cleanliness could have been a bit better, there are a lot of variables at no fault to the host or location. Pool was nice, but the fountain timer was on odd hours. Host was very friendly and would normally respond same day. I would stay again. Thanks
We had a very enjoyable stay at the Palmera
We had a very enjoyable stay at the Palmera. The house has a nice layout with the master bedroom separated from the other bedrooms. The open kitchen, dining room & family room are nice for relaxing & conversation. We especially enjoyed that the house is just a few minute drive from grocery stores & restaurants. There are many great restaurants in the area too. The pool doesn't get a lot of direct sunlight, but this wasn't a problem for us since we were looking for warm weather while avoiding sunburn. I would stay at this location again.
There was nothing Floridian about this place
This is not the place to rent if you want lots of sun as it is mostly shaded. There was nothing Floridian about this place. The worst of it was the odor when we arrived. We burnt 5 fragrance candles, sprayed 2 cans of room freshener, and had an odor eater for days before we finally masked the smell. The kayaks were filthy, we washed months of dirt out of them. The furniture appeared to be old furniture brought in from elsewhere. It was more appropriate for a Maine lodge and nothing about it felt clean. They turned the house over so fast that the cleaning service did not have time to finish the laundry and asked my wife to move clothes from the washer to the dryer. Can't imagine they had enough time to wipe the place down or maybe they just waited to the very last minute. I understand being economical but they had the thinnest cheapest toilet paper one could imagine, we went to the store and bought real paper. This place was not a comfortable, clean or fun place to stay.
We had a wonderful time thanks to Renee
Couldn’t say better things about our stay here! It exceeded our expectations! Everything from the cleanliness, amenities, location, and even down to the little touches. We had a wonderful time thanks to Renee!!
The area is perfect for anyone of any age
Villa Palmera has all of the amenities you need for a short visit or a long stay. The kitchen had everything we needed and the pool and water access are perfect. The area is perfect for anyone of any age.
We very much enjoyed staying here
We very much enjoyed staying here! When we arrived, we were so impressed with the open floor plan and that the sliding glass doors opened up to the pool area. It was perfect indoor/outdoor living and the weather was beautiful. The house was also very clean and updated. The kayaks and the bikes were really nice amenities that our family enjoyed. The only concern that we really had was that the pool was cold when we arrived. I contacted Renee and she came the next day to show me how to turn the heat up in the pool. It took a day to heat up so we missed out on swimming in the pool for two days but the kids spent a lot of time in the pool after that. Overall we were very impressed with this home!

Renee was a helpful, kind and professional host
Renee was a helpful, kind and professional host. I initially thought the check-in details hadn’t been sent and when I contacted her she forwarded them to me right away. I later found the original message, which she had thoughtfully sent the day before our arrival, in my junk mail file. My fault - not hers! She also responded quickly to a couple of questions and checked on us during our stay. The house met our needs, and we really appreciated the two beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, ample beach towels and bicycles. We had hoped to use the kayaks but didn’t get a chance to do so. We also didn’t use the pool, as the water was quite cold from the chilly November nights. We did enjoy sitting by the pool, though. The wifi worked great, as did the AC, which was only needed one night of our stay.
