Satisfied with the "Rising Tide"
This is a great place to vacation & not have the restrictions of hotel living. All amenities exceeded our expectations, especially the location which allowed our group of 4 adults, 2 children & 2 teens to do exactly what we wanted to do, simultaneously! The dads & little ones fished & played while the moms read, watched movies & relaxed while the teens kayaked & explored. The place was clean & well decorated & there was even food in the refrigerator. We all loved the pier & the lagoon & really enjoyed looking out over the water at sunrise & sunset, even though we were joined every day by a very personable crane who we named Carmelo. He swiped a couple of our fish but we still liked seeing him every day. :) We didn't use the "extra" room on the ground floor because it smelled & wasn't very cozy, but we didn't need to use it because the main house slept all of us comfortably. And can I just say that we LOVED the fact that the water in the showers stayed hot even after 8 showers! I think I may have taken a 30 minute shower once. I just didn't want to get out! The beach is a 5 minute walk or 1 minute drive away & there are countless good restaurants & shops just minutes away. We will definitely go again.
