Great Place to Stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is our 3rd trip here since March!! We love this place!! Tami & Stacey are wonderful. They make you feel like family. The home has so much to offer. It is beautifully furnished and the setting is so peaceful. There is so much to do right here -- fishing, kayaking, paddle boating, bird watching, and looking for the manatees that come right to the shore. Restaurants and shopping are a short drive away. Instead of going to my daughter's house to visit, they prefer to come visit us here. All I can say is you won't be disappointed staying here -- and we WILL be back!!!!

Nothing but the best

What a great home away from home. Was on a business trip and this is exactly what the doctor ordered after a long day at business meetings. Tami is a great hostess and the house was perfect. If you are an avid VRBO'er you will appreciate that the condiments, sugar and small things you usually have to pick up where there. Really enjoyed the serenity of being able to sit on the back porch overlooking the back waters. Even saw a Manatee or two. Will definitely be back.

A Blessing From Above

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we arrive until the time we left, Tami and Stacy treated us like family. We came down for my husband, Mike's, surgery at Laser Spine Institute that week. We were nervous, expectant, and these two sweet ladies came to our rescue, literally. Their home was breathtaking, convenient, and well stocked. The added extras they did for us to make us feel welcome and right at home made all the difference in what could have been a very trying time for us. We firmly believe God brings people in our lives for a season and a purpose. That's what God did when He put us in Tami and Stacy's hands. These wonderful ladies are family to us now and we could not be more blessed ever! Thank you both so very much. You are such a treasure!

Wow, what a treat!!!

This was one of the best vacations we've ever had. The owner is awesome, the house is pristine, and the scenery and wildlife are like a wonderland. We saw manatees, dolphins, osprey, spoonbills, herons and lots of songbirds. We enjoyed fishing, kayaking, paddle boating---and that was just at the house. Loved the aquarium, the zoo, and the Gulf Island beach.
Thank you so much Tami for sharing your little piece of heaven. We hope to come back some day.

Very likely to return!

The house and location were exactly as described. The owner was friendly, and communicated everything effectively.

We stayed here for a 4 day weekend during the Memorial Day Weekend. The location is perfect for kayaking - launch right in the backyard! The location is also convenient to events at Raymond James Stadium, and nicer restaurants downtown - less than a 15 minute drive.

House was very clean, and well kept. Perfect for a no-hassle, relaxing weekend away. Next time I'm in Tampa - this will be the first place I look to stay!

We came here for our daughter's wedding. Not only was the wedding perfect but this home was perfect!! Tami is an unbelieveable person - she makes you feel right at home. We loved the kayaking and paddle boating. There was so much to see - the fish, the birds and the dolphins. Sitting out on the balconey - at any time morning, afternoon or evening - was so relaxing. The home has everything (and more) that you could possibly need. It is soooo much better than just sitting in an old hotel room. All I can say is "Thank You" Tami for making this trip so enjoyable. We will definitely be back.
