About the Owner

I'm a retired Tampa police officer. My career was dedicated to helping people in need. This career was rewarding in many ways. The good feeling inside from helping others in need is just one example. I now manage my long term rental properties, and this one vacation rental. I really does give me a similarly good feeling by being able to share my tropical paradise with nice families, and to help make their vacations just a little bit nicer by having this amazing property to enjoy.

Better than advertised....

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at this property with a group of friends over the Labor Day weekend. I was a first time VRBO.com user, so naturally I was a little skeptical of the entire process. The rental couldn't have turned out better. The owner was very accommodating of our group, and the property was truly better than advertised.

After this experience, I am going to continue to look for vacation rentals as opposed to hotels, and this particular property will be my go to in the Tampa area. Great amenities, including pool, hot tub, billiards, arcade games, etc. Very private setting. And the owner was an ease to deal with.

This property, although right in the city, is a real hidden gem. There's no excuse for boredom at any time. Both inside and out, there's always something to do. My brother and I spent many hours sitting on the covered pavilion reminiscing and watching the boats go by. Even during a torrential rainstorm, it was still great to be outside. We also enjoyed the billiard table and the good stereo that is attached to the tv (which we seldom needed to watch). A true holiday escape for any age!

Fantastic property, superb holiday !

  • 5 of 5
This house was just amazing! It was spacious and clean and well furnished.The games room was brilliant and it was nice to have the pool table - great fun on an evening! The grounds were outstanding too. The huge pool was the pefect temperature, and the selection of pool toys & floats gave the kids hours of fun ! The hot tub was a nice addition and made the stay even more relaxing. The views from the end of the garden & jetty were lovely and we spent many an hour watching spectacular sunsets from the Pavillion. Truly the nicest holiday home we've ever stayed in. The property is in a great location on The Hillsborough river & close to many shops, supermarkets and other attractions - The Tampa Bay Aquarium is a "must see". Miguel, the owner is more than helpful & really made us feel welcome. We would love to return to this property on holiday as it was perfect in every way! Thank you Miguel from The Stevens Family!

Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5
We loved this place. The house is spacious and clean. As nice as the house is, we spent most of our time outside. It really is an oasis. The palm trees and greenery provided privacy from the neighbors. We glimpsed the neighbors, but never heard them. We felt like we were on our own tropical island. I enjoyed my morning coffee on the dock some mornings, under the pavilion facing the river other mornings. It was so quiet and peaceful. The neighborhood is quiet and very well located. We were minutes from everything. The pool was spectacular. It is huge. We swam 3 to 4 times a day. My grandson would have stayed there the entire time. He also enjoyed feeding the koi in the pond. Miguel was a great 'concierge'. I wish I could convey how relaxing and comfortable we felt while we stayed there. We honestly hated to leave. Our experience there has set the bar for our future vacations. If we go back to Tampa, we will definitely try to stay here again. Thank you Miguel.

The gardens made this place to tropical paradise

  • 5 of 5
We booked this villa based on the photographs of the gardens and pools for our honeymoon and we were not disappointed by them one bit!
I loved the huge pool and jacuzzi and would never tire of the view of the river. The gardens were very well maintained throughout.
Inside the house is incredibly spacious, the seating area is great with large tv, blu ray and netflix.
Bedrooms again were very big, only I thing that could improve them is possibly a few more bedside tables and some lamps?
Air con is good and rooms remained cool throughout the night.
Miguel was always on hand throughout to answer our many questions by phone or email.

We would love to return here again, hopefully to celebrate our anniversary!

Thanks Miguel for everything :-)
