Matt and Loraina
Stayed at the casa with my inlaws, wife, daughter, sister in law, and niece in Jan 2012. The house is an oasis. Something wonderful happens when you walk through that front door - stress melts, relaxation is everywhere and the house invites you to have fun!
We have stayed all over the world, cruised, hiked, etc - nothing has compared to this very special experience.
Capt Julie was an amazing host - helpful in every way possible.
We do hope to return some day soon!
Excelent Vacation getaway
We were here with our granddaughter and family. We like the house and scenery so much we are going back in Oct 2011 for 2 weeks and again in Feb 2012 for 2 weeks. Will definately keep coming back as long as Capt. Julie and Pam will let us. House is close to anything that a family member would need for an extended stay. Our 4 yearold Greatgranddaughter liked it so much she is bringing her 2 month old brother in Feb. Our little Yorkie loves the place.
Casa Encantada truly lives up to its name. It is positively enchanting. Driving through the canopy of huge oak trees, dripping with Spanish moss, as we approached the entrance, took our breath away. The home itself is absolutely amazing and there was nothing we needed that wasn't there. It's beautiful as well as comfortable, which lent itself to making us feel right at home and very relaxed. As you go out back, you feel like you are entering a Utopia. The pool and the Tiki bar, along with the palms and flowers, including frangipani, which is the flower used to make leis, made me feel like I was on a tropical island. We saw many herons, including one that walked right across the back yard, only a few feet away from us. When have you walked out in your backyard and seen manatees and dolphins? It's a sight to behold and we did this every day we were there.
I will return as often as possible. It is beautiful, peaceful and serene. As I stood looking out over the water, whether I was watching manatees and dolphins or watching beautiful sunsets, I couldn't help but think that I had "reached out my hand and touched the face of God.”
Couldn't have asked for a more perfection vacation!
This home is absolutely beautiful! Inside, we found all the comforts of home and then some. The entire home is packed with comforts and conveniences you won't find at any hotel, resort, or condo! There are incredible views from every angle. When you step outside, the attention to detail in the landscaping is so nice. The tropical foliage, beautiful trees, the hammock under the banyan...all were just perfect. The views of the bay, and the little sandy beach area were great for our children! They played with sand buckets, found tons of beautiful shells, and caught more fiddler crabs than I could count. And...as though all of this wasn't enough, the pool is absolutely fantastic. There is not one ounce of detail that has been overlooked. The design of the pool is just beautiful and the lagoon style makes you feel like you are on your own private island. From the tiki hut, to your own personal cocktail table in the pool...we found ourselves there for hours at a time, every single day of our stay. This is the perfect pick for anyone who loves comfort, beauty, privacy, relaxation, fun, and awesome views while on vacation! Captain Julie and Pamela are awesome to work with; you can't go wrong here!
Loved every minute of it, the house was so comfortable with every thing you could want. The best pool ever with beautiful views.
We would love to come back to it some day.
Julie has a delightful home.

A Retreat in Paradise
An unexpected surprise awaited us in Palmetto, FL. in the name of Casa Encantada This home was unlike any other vacation home we had rented. It was fully appointed with many amenities to help make our stay fun, entertaining, relaxing. or whatever we needed it to be The grounds of this home were beautifully manicured and its location on the Manatee River was a real treat because of the fishing and kayaking which could be done. Watching the sunsets from the lifeguard chairs, swinging on the swing which was situated on the arm of the enormous banyan tree,reading in the hammock, frolicking in the beautiful free-form heated pool, or just having drinks and snacks at the tiki bar were more of the amazing choices in which we could partake each day. Being outside was truly a feast for our senses because of the sunsets, the tropical greenery, the wildlife all around, and the decorative touches that make this home so much fun.
This home was a delight on the outside but the interior was also fantastic. The gourmet kitchen was outstanding. Anything needed to make a gourmet meal was at your fingertips-other then the food of course. All that's needed are your home recipes, although the owner has a few cookbooks on the shelf available for use. Meals could be eaten in the spacious dining room, around the fabulous granite kitchen bar, or outside in the grill or pool areas.
There were three bedrooms and two bathrooms which had been renovated. They were clean and fully equipped with extra bedding and towels for the bathrooms as well as beach towels for the beach area located at the river's edge.
The owner of this home has made every attempt to outfit her home with a wide array of items that could make for a truly memorable vacation. Without a doubt, it was a very memorable time for us. We truly felt like we were living in a private paradise retreat.
