We were impressed. Being a little cautious as a first time guest, I will say the entire process proceeded very smooth and timely, and ALL was as portrayed. The majority of our time was spent SCUBA diving and spearfishing so we didn't have much energy to "hit the town" much during the evenings. We spent our first evening pre-preparing the bulk of our evening meals so all we would have to do is start the oven and grill. Then we enjoyed dinner by the pool and lush landscape.

Mentally speaking, our visit was absolutely relaxing. After settling in a bit, we found grocery stores, shops, restaurants and other retailers of necessities easy to reach and in close proximity. Although we were in the heart of the beach, we commented among ourselves many times how each of us felt like we were on a quiet, private island. Toward the end of our week when we were not diving as much, we took easy strolls to the beach and enjoyed visiting a beachfront bar and grill. I'm sorry that I can not remember the name but, it was great relaxing under umbrella covered tables watching the ocean, having drinks and dining from a really good menu.

Simply stated, I would visit again.

We would highly recommend this property! Loved the privacy of our own home and pool in lovely neighborhood. Proximity to beach was also great and close enough for our 2 year old to walk to. This property is very clean and up to date--had everything we needed including a nice Weber grill, high chair and laundry. The whole rental process was smooth and efficient.

Thanks for a great experience!

This house was perfect for us. When we arrived the place was spotless and the pool area was beautiful. The kitchen is loaded with modern appliances and the ice cube spitting refrigerator was one of the only ones we have used which didn't shoot cubes onto the floor as well as into your glass. The living and dining areas were attractively furnished with none of the beach scenes and palm trees that "decorate" other beach properties. The beds were great...super comfortable. The pool area is surrounded by tons of plants and trees which gives the feeling of being on a tropical island. There is an outside shower and while using that you really feel you're cleaning up in a forest. The property manager, Kiril, is easy to reach and was there to help us whenever we needed him.

Our only complaint would be that the pool area is too lush. The pool is often in the shade due to the height of some of the trees. We understand that the owner is a dermatologist and possibly he's doing his bit to combat skin cancer. Our complaint is minor though, we have agreed to rent the house for an even longer period next year.

We spent a wonderful week at the Highland Palms last spring. The house is charming in decor with all the necessities to provide a relaxing stay. It is a very short block to the beach. There are several palm trees on this area of beach for shade as well as plenty of sun and sand. We spent many hours around/in our private, tropical pool--listening to our favorite music on the outdoor system. It was a great week, and I look forward to returning next year.

Superb vacation location. Description was very accurate, with house, pool and hot tub being clean and well maintained. Sure beats staying in a hotel! Enjoyed the updated electronics. Cable internet and TV's along with I-pod connection through the AV equipment was great! Looking forward to return next year.

My family and I enjoyed our stay at the Highland Palms. The pool area has great landscaping and provides a nice, private area to swim and/or relax. The house was as described and includes just about everything you need. The walk to the beach was very short and not too crowded. I will return on our next trip to S. Florida.

Thanks again for everything.  Our vacation was wonderful and Ismael and your entire staff was great.   We've rented a lot through HomeAway and also own a home in Holgate (LBI), NJ beside our own home in NY and understand how it is to keep a house in order!!

This is the perfect home to decompress from the busy life we live. Reading a book by the pool, cooking healthy meals, relaxing to the sound of the waterfall in the pool...the shelter of this property brings a true comfort to those who stay here. We couldn't be more thrilled to have been here 2 years ago and came back to the comforts of this house. All appliances were replaced and great to use. The location is quiet and close to the beach by a short walk. We really enjoyed the Chart House restaurant with a serene view to the water. And we loved our walks by the ocean. Our stay couldn't have been more perfect. This house is everything the pictures show and we WILL come back again! Kiril and Louis insured our comforts at the house after the hurricane travelled through and had the property quickly in order. Very clean property and we highly recommend it. A 6 star rating!!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your comment. We are very glad you enjoyed your stay. As you know, the owner takes pride in his home and is very open to following our luxury guidelines. We are pleased you were happy with the improvements. Hope to see you again.

OMG, what can I say? From the moment we walked though the gates of the propevey until the time our stay came to a close, we were in heaven! The house, the lush grounds, the amenities, the location, and the general ambiance were perfect. Upon arrival, we immediately turned off the a/c and opened up all the windows and turned on the ceiling fans. It was so easy breezy ... So nice a change, coming from Detroit. Every day, we rolled out of bed and onto the lounges by the pool. We enjoyed breakfast, thanks to the fully equipped kitchen. We also cooked a few lunches and dinners. The short walk to the beach was great. I can truly say we got our full use f the house. In fact, we barely left it except to go to dinner a few times. It was just the relaxing escape we needed. Another thing - the hot is fantastic! The bubbly lounge feature was so great. Everything was just wonderful ... What a beautiful home. Oh, must also mention the beds, which are super comfortable. The only thing I would change is the hair dryer. Seriously, I highly advise you spring the twenty bucks and get one made in this century. Your women guests deserve better. That's all I have .... Thank you so much, and I'll definitely be back again ... Looking for that new hair dryer!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. The owner allowed our design department to upgrade this home this past year to reflect a luxury vacation home for his guests. The new stainless steel appliances are the most recent added upgrade. The owner is scheduling for us to install a new guest bathroom for his guests in May 2013. The front gate is also being replaced by 2013. The home is in the perfect location for a tropical get away for all to enjoy.
