About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Tucked away amid ancient oak trees dripping with Spanish Moss along the meandering Hillsborough River your vacation home awaits you. This older Tampa neighborhood of Seminole Heights harkens back to a time when each family was built just for that family, so interesting architectural elements beckon as you walk your family pooch gunning for squirrels along the way. Just a block away you can watch birds from the riverbank from a small city park...there are several within walking distance. Lunchtime takes you to the 3 Coins Diner...you can walk there, too, and enjoy an authentic mom and pop.

All the opportunites of the Tampa Bay area await you from your nest in the neighborhood of Seminole Heights...

Lovely 3 bedroom & 1 bath completely furnished home. Fenced rear your for your pets. Turn key and ready for you to move into. A kitchen loaded with dishes, pots/pans, utensils & linens. No need to call the utility company because all of the services are active including high speed wireless internet & cable TV & a video library of 30,000+ movies for any rainy days.

Electronic key less entry (you chose the 4 digit code) changed each time a guest vacates for maximum security.

The house has a single car garage plus a single car carport. The home is located near the Hillsborough River in Historic Seminole Heights and only blocks from I-275 & Sligh Ave. It takes only minutes to go to Down Town, The St. Pete Times Forum, The Convention Center, The Preforming Arts Center, Ybor City, USF, Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, MOSI The Florida Aquarium & Lowery Park Zoo. It is less than one hour to the beaches & to Disney World.

About T J Tompkins

I am a Realtor that has specialized in the Management Single Family since 1977. I fell into vacation rentals by offering my homes for short term, vacation & corporate housing some years ago. I immediately booked beyond my wildest imagination. Because I am a small company and have 100% occupancy I am able to travel quite a bit and really enjoy my semi-retirement. This is a picture on me at the black sand beach in Hawaii. I count my blessings daily.

Wasnt fancy but we didnt require that. Everything you need was there, very much enjoyed the back yard in the evenings on the chairs under the trees. Kinda like a visit to your grandparents house.Quiet neighborhood for all. For our needs it was a Perfect place to stay. Highly recommend 3 coins diner for breakfast or any meal at the end of the street. Was a great vacation and would def stay here again.

great place to stay while visiting Tampa and surrounding area

  • 4 of 5

this very comfortable home is in a lovely & friendly neighborhood, close to a grocery store, restaurants, and easy to get to attractions like Busch Gardens, the airport, a golf course, and highways to beaches! It was nice to be able to have our dog with us, and the walks were very enjoyable. The home had all the amenities needed for a month's stay and any questions I had for the owner were answered quickly.

A Quaint House Among the Giant Oaks

  • 5 of 5

I needed a place to stay for over 6 months, and it was more difficult than I expected to find a place until I found TJ's home. He was extremely welcoming and accommodating to me and my 4-legged baby, my German Shepherd, Tina.

The house was the perfect size. If you're looking for a place to lay your head while you go out and explore all the greater Tampa area has to offer, this place is perfect for you. Use the location as a "base camp" and enjoy the wonderful beaches. A pet friendly beach I frequented was Ft. DeSoto Beach.

The neighborhood of Old Seminole Heights is timeless. The neighborhood itself is full of friendly neighbors, beautiful oak trees, the Hillsborough River, and a true sense of relaxation.

I used the house as my home for six months, and because it was only me, I didn't have to fight with anyone for the one bathroom. However, that doesn't mean it won't work for you and your party of 4 (or more)!

Tina enjoyed the newly installed doggy-door so she could go outside to sunbathe in the fenced backyard or chase off unsuspecting squirrels.

The majority of my time I cooked on the wonderful gas stove. The house is also perfect for entertaining.

I thoroughly enjoyed the local watering holes: Ella's and The Rooster and the Till were my favorite.

I am truly grateful I rented from TJ. Whenever I had a minor issue, he was very responsive and would fix whatever needed to be fixed. The small garage was a great place to store my motorcycle, and he was willing to put a lock on it. I highly recommend this quaint bungalow in historic Tampa for your visit to the area!

Very good!

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely 3 bedroom, 1 bath rental, just 20 minutes north of Tampa International Airport. Everything was included. It was advertised as a "just bring your clothes, and move in," and that proved to be the case. It provided us with Netflix, which we had not used before. We will be ordering it for our home. We had a problem with the toilet running, amd our landlord TJ came right over, with a plumber, the same day, and fixed it. He also talked me through how to use Netflix over the phone. We were pleased with our stay. We would have given it four stars, if it had an extra bathroom, but we knew that going in.

Tampa Rental

  • 2 of 5

We were disappointed in the rental property. The kitchen and bathrooms were very outdated and in poor condition. The house was very musty and had a foul odor. The living room furniture was very old and very uncomfortable to sit on. The back yard was full of fleas so we couldn't sit out. The owner did have fruit for us when we arrived and a nice welcome message. They also provided a nice book explaining the house and area services. However, even though we had paid for a month we left after two weeks.
