Andrew 's place was clean and well-equipped. It felt like home and more for us. Our host was responsive, attentive and accommodating. Having him as a host was like having your own private concierge. Scenic and tranquil environment, clean comfortable accommodation and a great host...what more can one ask for?

We truly enjoyed our stay in St. James City and Andrew's house was comfortable, clean, and was furnished with everything we needed. Andrew answered any questions we had very quickly. We were sad to leave and hope to stay again.

I absolutely loved staying at Andrew's house. It's so peaceful and quiet there. I can't wait to go back and stay longer. The master bed is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. I'll come back just to sleep in that bed again. Great hiking trails nearby to take my dog hiking. We grilled out steak and hotdogs so I can't attest to the restaurants in the area.

We were frantically trying to find a place on the West Coast of Florida that we could bring our dogs to that wasn't too far from home. Hurricane Matthew was upon us and we had been evacuated in Tequesta. I requested the house not knowing if we would be accepted on such short notice. Within an hour I received an email that we were welcome and we could check in at any time. I was able to relax a little knowing we had somewhere to go. We packed up in the morning and headed out. We were delighted to see the quaint and colorful Pine Island with its brightly colored shops, restaurants and watering holes. We found the house easily and once inside determined we were safe and very well provided with 2 bedrooms and bathrooms, a large, well stocked kitchen and a lovely water view. It was perfect. I sent Andrew a text to get a recommendation on restaurants, and in seconds my phone rang. It was Andrew welcoming us, expressing concern for us, letting us know that the rest of our family was welcome, if needed, and he wanted to let us know he had blocked off the next few days in case we could not return home. He gave us a list of places to go and could not have been more helpful. What a wonderful host . Matthew wobbled away from us and moved up the coast. We were lucky. We will visit Andrew's paradise again, next time for pure enjoyment.

Andrew was extremely quick with his communication. His place was exactly as he described it. His house was extremely clean, quiet, and inviting. I loved the shower mat so much that I had to get an identical one for my bathroom!

My wife and I are retired. We live part-time in Saint James City and part-time in "Hill Country" Texas.
We love the Florida beaches, boating and fishing but also enjoy quiet times on the ranch. Our concept of "winter" is any temperature below 60 degrees.
