traveler reviews for this tampa house rental

Quiet neighborhood, close to many places

Review submitted: August 15, 2013   Date of arrival: August 4, 2013

Overall the stay in the house was good. The neighborhood is quiet and we were only 15-20 minutes from Busch Gardens and USF. My husband was working at the college all week, being near USF was a plus. The house itself is an older home. The kitchen is small, but I cooked everyday and we were able to use it with no problems.
There was an odor when we first arrived. Due to the fact that pets are allowed in the house I am pretty sure it was coming from the rug. Once I removed the rug from the living room, it was better. I voiced my concern to the owner, he was very nice about the situation and brought over a dehumidifier, which helped tremendously. There was also an odor coming from the full size mattress. Mr. Tompkins said he had never had anyone complain about it before. He did offer to bring another mattress over. We used the queen and twin beds and they worked just fine.
There was a washer and dryer at the property, which was very nice. It was in the garage, not attached to the house. The kids also enjoyed watching netflix cartoons, and having internet access was very important. It was nice to have space to spread out and place where I could cook for the family while we were there.
There are some things that could be replaced or cleaned better, but overall the house worked fine. I did bring up concerns to Mr. Tompkins. He is a very nice man and tried to help make my stay there very pleasant.

Nice and clean!

Review submitted: May 7, 2012   Date of arrival: April 23, 2012

Very clean! This was an excellent place to stay. It was as nice as described on the website. Owner was friendly and helpful. Beds were comfortable, very clean, ironing board and iron. Fully appointed kitchen. Nice porch. Convenient to Convention Center. Washer and dryer were helpful. We felt safe in the neighborhood. It felt like we were staying at a friend's house. Our purpose in town was for the convention center so we can't comment on tourist attractions. We visited Seminole Heights United Methodist Church whwhich was very friendly.

We would definately stay here again. Clean and comfortable!
