About Ted Meiggs

Owner is an environmental Consultant. He and his wife live in Golden, Colorado. Their two sons and four grandsons live in the Tampa area and they are available to assistance our guests in an emergency. We keep the condo fully equipped since we use it ourselves a couple of times a year to assure that any needed repairs or upkeep is taken care of correctly. We enjoy visiting with our family in the area and participating in the many local attractions such as the beach, sports, golf, boating, dinning out, etc.

Ted Meiggs purchased this condo in 2005

Very Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

This condo was nicely situated in the very pleasant community of Palm Harbor just north of Tampa. The condos layout and ammenities provided for a very relaxing stay whether just lounging around or cooking meals when staying in. The lake view out back provided many opportunities for wild life viewing as well as lush vegetation. If we are in the area again we will surely contact Ted and look to stay again.

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

Spacious condo looks just like the pictures in the ad. It is located in a quiet complex populated by friendly neighbors some of whom are seasonal and others permanent. The location is central to virtually everything you might want to do in Florida. Owner Ted is just a phone call away if any problems arise. This was our second stay with Ted and we are looking forward to going back in Feb. 2015.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this condo. This was our home for 2 months while I was receiving medical treatment for Lyme Disease. We felt right at home from the moment we walked in. The condo has everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, bedrooms, and bathrooms. The neighbors are super friendly and welcoming. We made several friends while staying there. Ted the owner checked on us numerous times while we stayed to make sure everything met our expectations, and is an exceptionally nice person. The pool and hot tub are very clean and we liked the fact that it was in a locked location and only the tenants could use it. The location is perfect and only minutes from shopping locations. I would highly recommend this condo and look forward to coming back for vacation the next time.

Wonderful Property with A Wonderful Views

  • 5 of 5

The Photos don't do the property justice... because the Unit is very long and more spacious than the photos can show....has a spectacular view of the private pond (which has some pretty good bass fishing)... It is extremely well maintained...smells nice and feels fresh and clean... Every amenity that you'll need like cookware, plates, silver, glasses, utensils, spices, Fridge with ice maker, plenty of towels, washer and dryer... comfortable beds, internet, King size bed and 2 doubles, with a sofa sleeper... really big table with sleeves to be shortened or lengthened.

Has cooshy carpet, large tv in living room and smaller in main bedroom(although neither are flat screen/led etc but does have rca inputs but not hdmi) but does have good cable channels... 2 full size baths (1 shower and 1 shower/tub). Good size closets... both are walk in sized..

Nice neighbors, quiet neighborhood, except for the occasional exotic bird or hoot owl :O... Really Really neat in that the golf course is only 50 yards from the property, and if you like seeing wild life you can see lots of deer and turkeys on the course... Plenty of squirrels and shore birds too...and an occasional foot long mini-gator in the pond..

Ted is a really nice guy and very enjoyable to work with... He refunded our deposit in a timely manner and is accountable to the tenants etc...

Also the location is close to walking and biking paths and there are some great neighborhoods to walk or bike through.. Grocery Store, Gym, Restaurants, Drug Stores, etc. are all within a 3-5 minute drive and less than 1 mile away...

This is a really nice property on the top floor, so no-one walking on top of your head and it has an assigned covered parking and there is plenty of guest parking... Pool is very well maintained as well....

Bout a 25 minute drive to Tampa Airport and 20 minutes to the beaches etc....and 20 minutes to the Sponge Docks etc..

You wont go wrong here....

Great Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable 2 month stay. The pictures and descriptions provided were accurate. There were no surprises. Quiet, comfortable surroundings, good neighbours and a location that is central to everything (golf, baseball, theater, beach, restaurants,horse races etc)are the main reasons we've already booked to go back next year. Owner Ted was very helpful, always available and very easy to deal with.

Excellent condo with lots of room. Ted was great to work with on all details of rental. Pool was large and in great shape. Great Hot tub. Condo had everything we needed. Fully outfitted kitchen and laundry. Superb view of nature filled pond. Location in the East Lake area was central to all shopping, beach areas, and restaurants. Quiet housing area. I hope I get the opportunity to rent again in the future.
