Whether it be on the Panhandle or on the southern part of the Atlantic Ocean there are all sorts of places for Florida beach vacations to check out in the state. So, while you can see other houses from the road-side of this house, the property has a real sense of privacy and from the large deck, hot tub, and back of the house you’re just surrounded by only complaints were there weren’t enough sharp knives, particularly a bread knife, and there’s a weird 2-inch step between the kitchen area and living area which tripped up most of us for the first day or two.

To ensure we could plan the perfect trip we sent them a questionnaire about their passions, hobbies and past travelling experiences, and then asked three simple but very important questions: which continent they’d like to visit, which time of year they wanted to go, and how much money they wanted to spend.
