    Prime location and cozy quarters

    Reviewed by: Scallop Queen on


    Nadeen was a fantastic host during our stay. She kept us prepared for our visit before our arrival, and made sure the house had every convenience of home. She also welcomed us with a customized “Welcome Freeburn Family” sign upon our arrival. The little touches make all the difference. Everything was comfortable and well maintained, and the new patio deck out back was perfect for relaxing after a day on the water. The neighbors were all very friendly and welcomed us into the neighborhood. It’s a beautiful 15 minute ride to the boat ramp for scalloping, and Mango Tangos is a great local dinner option. We had a wonderful trip and will definitely be back!

    a Wonderful home away from home!!

    This property is off the beaten path for most- but very close to springs and several other fascinating locations including state parks. Well maintained, clean, spacious and with attention to detail and personalization that does not impose this home is a respite from busy life and a great place to recharge. The decorating is consistent, and the glass art from the owner lends a bright and interesting touch. Every bed was comfortable and every need was anticipated. We enjoyed our weekend stay here and highly recommend it for anyone needing a true home away from home while exploring ?Old Florida?.

    We had 3 fantastic weeks staying in this rental. The home provided everything we needed. Turned out to be an awesome home base to venture out with the motorcycles.Plenty of country roads to explore without the annoying heavy traffic. Property has space to handle any size boat or motorcycle trailer, which is hard to find with rentals.Thank you Nadeene, for your hospitality and sharing your glass work hobby with us.Hope to find time to come back next year.David & Muriel

    We really enjoyed our stay, and Nadeene (the owner) is very helpful with suggestions of fun things to do. There's so many hidden restaurants, and we loved seeing the manatees. I hope to book soon for a scalloping trip (I know, I better hurry), and this is the perfect location to stay. I would definitely stay here again.

    Great home base for scalloping

    Reviewed by: Sean H. on


    Sunshine Acres was a great place to come back to after a long day of scalloping. There is plenty of room to park a boat and surprisingly plenty of room inside to accommodate a boat full of people. Nadeene was extremely friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay again

    We stayed the month of March and had a very relaxing stay. The area was a very quite neighbourhood. Having the owner close by was a bonus as she was there if anything was needed and we had any concerns. We would definitely rent this place again
