Comfortable home,excellent setting
This is a very comfortable and well equipped home. The outdoor space on the canal is just wonderful. The location is close to everything one could need - grocery stores, shopping, restaurants, and our favorite - access to the Upper Tampa Bay trail - we are avid walkers/runners and had a pet with us. Suggestions to the owners - blinds for the large kitchen window and better curtain coverage for the master bedroom sliding doors etc. There is a home being built next door and the workers were truly just able to look right into both areas. There were also people boating on the canal fishing in the wee hours of the morning and able to see right into all areas of the back of the house. The windows on the front door and its side panels would do well to be frosted or mirrored - again, workers parked out front looking in and on one occasion a neighbor chasing down his dogs was outside the front door as I was walking by - not a comfortable milieu. The master bathroom has an awesome shower, however there is no vanity/counter space and the position of the faucet protruding over the sink is very dysfunctional. Overall the home is roomy, bright, clean, homey and the outdoor space on the canal so very peaceful - just lacks some privacy - would stay again without hesitation.
Excellent month on Rocky Creek!
We stayed at this wonderful cottage for a month (two adults plus two big dogs) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The location is close to everything you can "go, see, do", yet the setting is very tranquil - a world apart from the busy part of town. It was perfect for us. Our dogs loved the fenced in yard and stayed away from the seawall so, luckily, no accidental swims. The home is very comfortable, nicely decorated, clean and supplied with everything you could possibly need. Julia and Alex were very accessible. As an added bonus, Julia came by with flowers at the beginning of our stay and with some delicious strawberries later in the month (she went a little crazy at the strawberry festival :)). They were both a pleasure to visit with - very knowledgeable about the area and excited to talk about the nature around us. We highly recommend this vrbo!
The View is Perfect
The home is more than we ever expected. The pictures do not tell the story. The home is well decorated and cozy. The view out the back is perfect. We explored the water behind the home and went fishing. The kids had a blast. It is close to the beaches and downtown. The area has many great places to eat and we found a few nice places for live music. Do not miss this one.
Will stay again.
