I have been to Florida plenty of times before and stayed in a lot of different vacation homes but nothing so nice as Toms house. I already been back twice and are about to book my next trip now. This time Im going to stay 1 week in his marco house and 1 week at his beachhouse in Melbourne. Im really looking forward to that. Whenever in the future I will visit south Florida I would like to rent Toms Marco house. Threes nothing better. I been putting a lot of researchs behind my searchings for rental houses. Some would say a little too much but I like it perfect on my holidays. For me the pool is very important. It has to be big, have sun and a area for the kids and be warm. Toms pool have all that. The house is very cozy too. Not like a rental house. It really feels like someone lives there and look after the house. Whoever visit Toms house will not be disappointed. I give it 5 *****

"I just wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! for a wonderful week in Marco. Your demeanor and professionalism is unsurpassed. You are such a joy to deal with. My mother bragged and bragged about you all week after meeting you. The house was exactly as represented on line. The house was fabulously clean and well maintained. Your furnishings are amazing. Items that impressed us included the video collection, the selection of music, the pool toys, and the telescope with the star chart. The outdoor kitchen and dining area were amazing. We did not eat one family dinner inside. The sliding windows made entertaining easy and enjoyable. The kitchen- WOW- where do I begin? We packed a huge box of accessories to discover that you supplied what we packed and more. We couldn't believe the spice drawer! The platters, the cookware, the silverware, etc. just incredible. For boat owners, your dock is a piece of heaven! We found it easy to launch and dock without hassle. The downstairs Master Suite was an answer to in-laws prayers. They had the opportunity to enjoy the grandkids but enough privacy to enjoy themselves. The upstairs Master Suite cannot be described in words. The view and balcony are amazing! The adjustable vibrating bed was a true treat from the normal rental. Between the jacuzzi and the shower I was in love!"

Wild Fishing Refuge
In these tough times I guess we are all extra careful where we spend our holiday bucks, but we are so pleased that we chose to vacation in your Wild Fishing Refuge home. We had a FANTASTIC time! I have to compliment you on your style and elegance - the house was amazing, the pool gorgeous and the interior design just outstanding…….. and as for the privacy…… it just doesn’t get any better. We loved the trail and pathway through the woods – it made you feel you were walking through a tropical forest. All the little extras were appreciated. I don’t think we would ever choose to stay in a hotel again after spending time in your house, I would like to add that it was like “home from home” except that our home doesn’t come anywhere near!!!! Loved it, just loved it. THANK YOU.

I just wanted to write a few lines to say Thank You for the most brilliant time at your home. We rent vacation homes, maybe once or twice a year in Florida and have to say that Wild Fishing Refuge not only reached our expectations but exceeded them! We always look for LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION and your home is quite honestly an amazing place to stay in. We felt “in touch” with peace and nature, and in this busy world of ours, that is almost an impossibility. Your house is sooooooo tastefully decorated and the artwork is exceptional! We loved every minute…….. We will be in touch again about returning next summer and maybe even Christmas?

Hi Tom, Just a note to thank you for the house while we were in Melbourne. We had a great time there and the house was great. I have passed details of yours to two others Mr Ormay and Mr Faily l who are both coming out next year so hopefully they will use you as well. All the best,

Ocean Breezes
Hi Tom
Sorry it’s a bit late – I’ve been rather busy since getting back from Florida. Villa review: Our two weeks holiday at Ocean Breezes was one of the most relaxing and restful breaks we have ever enjoyed. To have access to such a fantastic beach, just 2 minutes walk from the villa, meant that we could wander to and from the beautiful golden beach at anytime. We certainly recommend watching the sun rise across the ocean while splashing about in the warm sea – with just the crabs and the fish for company. The villa provided everything we needed for a home-from-home, with the added bonus of a tropical paradise for a garden. We spent hours splashing about in the pool and the Jacuzzi, swinging in the hammock slung between two palm trees, and in the evenings, dinner was served in the cabana while we watched the resident frogs hop about. The kitchen and dining room are spacious, and the bedrooms are well fitted and comfortable. Bathrooms are on the small side, but there is the added bonus of an outdoor shower, which certainly adds to the experience ! The Kennedy Space Centre was just a 45minute drive, and was by far our best day out. The Disney Parks are about an hour’s easy drive away, and Melbourne has a host of different restaurants to suit every taste. Tom proved an excellent host, on hand to help, but for the most part, leaving us to enjoy this wonderful, quiet piece of Floridian paradise. I would whole-heartedly recommend a stay.

We arrived back home just in time for another big snow storm expected to begin tonight. Sure wish we were still in Florida. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your 306 Avenue B property. The accommodations in the house, the beautiful pool/spa in the backyard "paradise", and the proximity to the beautiful beach were all ideal. We would like the opportunity to stay there again next year. We found the property in great condition and I hope you found it to your satisfaction when we left. If there is anything else we could have done, let me know. I noticed the garbage had not been picked up the Saturday morning we left; should I have brought the containers out to the street? Look forward to next year !! Best regards,

Hi Tom,
We wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed staying in your home on Avenue B. We have rented many homes in Florida and yours truly surpasses them all! We love the openess and roominess of your house, it is so clean and comfortable. My mother and I loved the new appliances! We were also pleasantly surprised how beautiful the landscaping was. It not only adds to the beauty of your home but privacy as well, which can be hard to come by in a Florida home. Ofcourse, we really enjoyed the new pool and jacuzzi, it looks like paradise out back! If Bob and I had to describe the home we wanted to rent every year, it would describe your home on Ave B. We also want to mention the quiet neighborhood and being just a few yards from the beach was awesome. Thanks for making our second year with you a great memory!! Sincerely, Mary and Bob Deer

I just wanted to touch base with you on our stay at the beach house. This was our first time vacationing in a residential home, I must say, it was a lot of fun for all of us to experience living life in a completely different climate. We were very pleased with everything. Thank you,

Wild Hibiscus
We have just arrived back in Scotland after spending two weeks in your beautiful home, Wild Hibiscus. We loved, loved, loved your home. It was our first time in Florida away from the mad rush of Orlando and we have to say it was simply fantastic. Why on earth do the travel agents push Clearwater beach to tourists when Melbourne Beach is so incredible? Your home was everything you described – no actually, it was MUCH BETTER!!! It was wonderful having the choice to soak up the Florida sunshine by the pool or walk a couple of minutes to the uncrowded beautiful beach. The kids had a ball in the surf (James 13, now thinks he is a pro surfer!). In the evenings, we often took a stroll to the Town of Melbourne Beach and had dinner – so relaxing! And stroll home again after a wee glass or two (or three)! Thanks again Tom, we will be back again. Actually my sister and her family may come too, so we might be booking two of your homes for next year!!! Can’t wait !

Alex, Tom and kids.
WOW and I thought I was hard to please? Your home is so stunning, we didn’t want to leave! The word to describe your home is “immaculate”. From room to room the place was so bright, airy and uplifting. Your furnishings and mural is outstanding. Everything we could ever need and more. We had such a great time at the beach during the day and barbequing in the evenings by the pool. It was just heavenly. Oh and the “unexpected” bananas growing in the backyard was so neat. All in all, we had the most amazing time and we want to come back to Wild Hibiscus next summer – IF WE CAN WAIT THAT LONG!! T-H-A-N-K-S,

Dear Tom, Like everybody else, after vacation time is over, we are all back to the rush and hassle of a working life, but I really wanted to find time to say a huge Thank You. We had a FABULOUS time at your home on 7th Avenue. The location is second-to-none. We so often left the car at the house and just trotted off everywhere !!!!! I came home not only suntanned but healthier too!!! What a bonus!!!! Thanks again for a fantastic vacation – if you ever want a recommendation, I would be VERY happy to oblige.

We loved your home and had a fantastic time in Indialantic. The place is so beautiful and the location was spectacular – we even loved the road where we felt almost in the country but still so close to everything. In the evenings it was a joy to be able walk to a good restaurant and be thoroughly spoilt – and yes, I agree Scotts is great!!!!! We would walk (or waddle, depending on the alcohol consumption) along the beach before going home – breathtaking! All in all, we had a marvelous vacation and wanted to let you know, you will be seeing more of us! y
