Perfection !!
5/5 stars
We just returned from Waterside Retreat and it was one of the best vacation places we have ever had. Absolutely perfect in every way. Spotless, great location, comfortable, and much more. We could get to several of our favorite restaurants without getting on the main highway. As seniors, we enjoyed the ease of getting out on the pier. We saw several manatees every day, usually late afternoon. Another great thing about this place was the host with Itrip Vacations. When they say "call us if you need anything", they mean it ! We have already booked a week in February, 2025 and can not wait !!

Wonderful Stay at Waterside Retreat
5/5 stars
What a beautiful home to spend a relaxing week in. We sat by and swam in the pool. We enjoyed the beautiful canal view and even Manatees came to visit, which delighted our granddaughter. The home was so well equipped with anything you could want. The kitchen was very modern, the furniture extremely comfortable! We will be back next year for sure!
