House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps
This not your high-priced, cookie cutter, typical Florida condo with granite counter tops, etc. Instead, this is a lovely 20 year old waterfront, manufactured home with a fenced yard in an older NW Tampa community. It is situated on a Rocky Creek saltwater canal that leads into Tampa Bay & the Gulf of Mexico. Includes a canoe for the adventurous.
Available by DAYS, WEEK(s) or MONTH(s). Flexible check in day and extra days may be added on. Please check "AVAILABILITY CALENDAR".
MINIMUM RESERVATION - 3 nights
BRING YOUR BOAT & FISHING GEAR. Some basic fishing rods & tackle are also provided. If you're lucky you might catch a dinner of Redfish, Snook, Spotted Seatrout or Mullet off the dock or head for the bay or Gulf.

Happy New Year
Great place to stay!
Very affordable place to stay
I will definitely recommend this location especially if you are in a budget. It is also so close to everything in Tampa.
Property has a few maintance issues, can't close bathroom window all the way, bathtub faucets runs, mattress in master bedroom needs to be replaced sags in the middle. We did let the owner know. These could be fixd by now.Location in a communtiy kind of questionable but very quiet and we had no problems. We were disappointed as we were told you could fish off dock but the water didn't look good and the owner said we probably wouldn't catch anything. When I spoke to the owner on the phone he said you could catch something. This was one reason we chose this property was so my husband could fish.All and all we had a restful vacation
As to the water, tannic acid from cypress trees and decaying palmetto roots up stream in "Rocky Creek" causes "tea" colored water in front of our unit and in northern Tampa Bay. The color varies in intensity with rain fall run-off as the fresh and saltwater mix. Fishing is better in cooler months when tampa bay cools and forces the fish to seek warmer water in the creeks and canals. In October the bay is still warm and fishing is not as good. Monthly tide cycles also have a strong influence on fishing results.
