We had the pleasure to rent this home for 6 months as we looked for our permanent home in Apollo Beach. There are so many reasons we loved this home and location, so here are some of them:
Why we loved this home:
Canal front in a great neighborhood
Being able to kayak or fish right from the dock
Fully furnished with everything we needed - even for an extended stay
Beach decor made it feel coastal and added to the experience of staying waterfront
Nicely remodeled and great living spaces
The lanai was a great place to grill, read, work, workout, etc. and great for our kids so they wouldn't go near the water
We loved the location of this home. It's downtown Apollo Beach so it's very close to everything..grocery stores, restaurants, CVS, coffee, spas, Apollo Meats, just about everything. Also minutes from the preserve which has awesome sunsets, great for walks, fishing, or a day playing in the sand. Minutes from the Manatee Viewing Center as well.
The overall location to visit other FL attractions is why we moved to Apollo Beach. There are so many places to visit within 30-60 minutes. Including Anna Maria Island, Sarosota, Siesta Key, St. Petersburg, Tampa, Busch Gardens, Clearwater; you'll never run out of things to do and a great location if you are visiting Florida to get to experience a variety of things at different places.
The owners are also amazing people who always responded promptly if we had questions or needed anything. I'll definitely have our friends and family stay here when they visit if it's available, since I know they'll really enjoy staying here.
We loved the house. The pictures don't do it justice. The owner was very helpful and gave great suggestions. The reason i didn't give it 5 stars is because the pictures imply there's a pool on site and there's not. The owner did offer us to come down to her complex to swim but it would have been more convenient to send the kids out the door to swim. Plus you can't swim in Apollo beach which was a disappointment. Other than that i would totally stay here again.
