We also rented a home North a year or two ago.
It was truly a beautiful home and fantastic setting!!!
It was called Paradise Palace and we did get a good deal on it.
HOWEVER, remember to ask questions...
if the pool is filled, if there are screens on the windows, if the AC is working if there are no screens, and if it's a real phone or radio phone that doesn't work. lol
Actually even if you ask (as we did) ya never really know till you get there... In our case the pool was not filled and working till 5 of 7, and only 2 ac's worked in the entire home. (the kids had to bunk together in a 5 br home)
Oh... and if ya see a tv in a picture on the web site, ask anyway.
The tv table was bare...
This was a few months after the hurricane so maybe the owners of this home honestly believed all was well. I have no clue, they never returned an e-mail.
BUT... what a beautiful home!
