Awesome for the whole family

If you like the photos, you will be even more impressed when you arrive. Tom and Terri have left nothing out with this home. From the decor to the furnishings to the recreation values of this home, we did not want to leave. This home is located in a quiet neighborhood with a great waterfront view. This home is spotless inside and out and nothing was spared in order to make our stay perfect. We spent the most part lounging around the pool, playing putt- putt and fishing from the dock. We caught over 50 fish off right off the dock. We were lucky enough to watch a dolphin swim within 15 feet of the dock as we enjoyed our morning coffee. During the rain, we took advantage of the game room which includes darts, pool, arcade, video poker and pin ball. If you like to relax and watch TV, you are in luck. There are TV's in every room and on the deck. You truly will not need to look elsewhere for recreation and relaxation. Groceries and dinning are all within 10 minutes. While booking this home, Tom was very quick to respond to questions and the transaction was stress free and easy. Thank you for a great stay and we look forward to making a return to the Apollo Beach House.

New Years

  • 5 of 5
The house is beautiful and has everything you need. We absolutely loved our week in Apollo beach. Great location and amenities. The game room was a very nice added touch. We had planned on going out for drinks a few times but all we had to do was open the door to the game room and it was as if we had our own personal bar. Top shelf accross the board. The pool was wonderful and the fishing off the pier was pretty good as well, even though I personally got skunked. Tom has thought of everything and I highly recommend the rental. I've stayed at at least 20 VRBO houses throughout Europe and the Caribbean and Florida. This house was absolutely near the top of the list as one of my favorites. Tom is easy to work with and is easily accessible. Rent this property. You will not be disappointed.

Great house

  • 5 of 5
My sister and I rented this fantastic house for a week. What a great decision that was!
We caught fish off the dock and swam in the pool and our friends and family enjoyed the game room immensely.
That house lacks nothing in creature comforts and if you don't like what they are watching in the living room go to your bedroom or the lanai or the other living room and watch what you want.
I don't know what else to say except that we want to stay there again!!

We are a family of 4 (kids 14 & 12) and stayed in this lovely house for 2 weeks in August 2014.

The photos on the website really don't do it justice and it was like being in someone's home rather than a rental.

The owners, met us and showed us round, answered questions and made recommendations for places to go, eat and shop.

Kids liked : Games room with the arcade machines; pool; fishing off the dock; WiFi; hammock; Lay-Z boy chair to watch tv.

We liked : Peaceful location; swing seat with wonderful views onto the bay - we saw dolphins; lazy BBQ's by the pool; comfortable bed; luxurious en suite; spotlessly clean and modern; it was a luxury home from home.

Parks - we got a 14 day combo ticket for Busch Gardens and Adventure Island so were in Tampa most days which was a comfortable 30/35 minute drive - easy via the I75.

Shopping : to the north there is a huge 'Westfield' shopping mall in Brandon which also has loads of restuarants; to the south is a 'Premium Outlets' mall in Ellenton. Both located off the I75.

Beaches : we didn't really have time for beaches but made a special trip out to Anna Maria Island (which we've previously visited) - it's just beautiful - and took us about 50 mins.

We had a wonderful time in this wonderful home; we didn't want to leave and we definitely want to return.

Thank you Tom and Terri!

This property is everything it states & then some! The inside of the house is beautiful & immaculate. All the rooms are amazingly decorated the one bathrooms are spacious the master bathroom has a Jacuzzi tub with a glass shower in the opposite corner. Everything worked, nothing stopped working except when somebody hide some Easter eggs in the pool table...sorry Tom :) The furniture is very comfy & in new condition. The beds & pillows were all comfortable, I slept in all the beds darn kids. The towels & face clothes clean & well stocked. Then there's the Arcade yup an Arcade yes the games are free an inground pool which has solar & gas heat,5 hole putting green, tiki bar, 8 flat screen TV's, dock on the ocean loaded with fish. I caught a Sting Ray which I released after removing some old hooks, Bream, Catfish, Drums, Sheepshead, Blue Crab.
I would recommend this property to all families from young to old, families with kids its a must.The town Appollo Beach which I don't think has a beach is has grocery stores, gas stations, banks, & restaurants in there is a Walmart 15 minutes away & a baitshop. We drove to St.Petes Beach 1 day, John's Past another, Ellenton to the Outlets, Myakka River State Park for a Gator tour all were roughly 30-45 minutes away that may seem far to some but this place is worth it. I have rented several properties & never enjoyed one as much as this one. In the end this is a 5 star rental home & Tom is a 5 star owner meets you on the first day goes over everything quickly & then leaves the only time we heard from Tom was when we texted him with a question which he was quick to respond. Don't bother looking any further like I did this is the place you've been looking for! We can't wait to go back!

We had the pleasure of renting this wonderful house for two months. It is everything you see in the pictures but even much nicer to see in person. The lanai was a very nice place to sit and read. By the fire pit was a place to sit and swing and watch boats, jet skies & wave runners go by. The house is very comfortable and relaxing. The game room was a hit with everyone along with the swimming pool. We did see some dolphins swim by which was very exciting. The house has stunning views of the bay. We miss hearing all the airplanes and helicopters go over now that we are back home in the country. We would like to Thank Tom and Terri for renting this house to us and making sure everything was okay by checking in with us every so often. Anyone thinking of renting a house in Apollo Beach should check into this home because it has everything you would want or need.

We are looking forward to next year! Thanks again Tom and Terri. You are both very nice people and easy to work with.
