Vacation Rental Features
perfect for my needs
I would stay here again without reservation.
The plumbing issue with my 1BR/1BA just prior to your arrival made us to promptly work on the 2BR/2BA in a short frame of time to make it ready for you. The timing and anticipation of your early arrival may be the cause of carpet edges to be over looked. Rest assured that it is not the norm.
About the Owner
perfect for my needs
I came to this property expecting to stay in a one-bedroom unit, but because there was s plumbing issue before I arrived, the owner graciously relocated me to this two-bedroom one, and without charging me any more. Communication with him was always pleasant, professional and prompt. The unit is spacious enough and with a lovely view. I really did not use any of the amenities, so I cannot comment. One thing I would say is that in general, the main areas of the unit were very clean - the kitchen, bathrooms and linens all fresh and immaculate. I do think the unit could use a deep clean as in vacuuming along the carpet edges, behind doors, etc. Accessibility to this area is very easy and convenient - literally 5 minutes from Tampa International Airport, but I was never disturbed by overhead noise.
I would stay here again without reservation.
Nice condo. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms very accomodating for small family on vacation. Beds nice and comfortable. View of pool area and Tampa Bay were great. Kitchen nice and clean. Laundry facilities clean. Staff friendly all around. Location is great being between Tampa and causeway to Clearwater. Communication with owner was excellent during our stay. He responded to issue we had almost immediately and resolved it right away. It was everything he stated in his webpage. Would stay there again!
Where to start, plenty of pros and cons
Great location. Small beach (but I wouldn't want to walk to it) and a few restaurants near by.
Very close to airport.
30 min to Clearwater beaches
15 min to downtown Tampa
20 min or less to a lot of major attractions
Grocery store within 5-10 min.
Beautiful view, warm pool, beds were pretty comfortable.
Shabnaam, who I believe to be the manager of the property, was decent to work with. All communication was made via email and my emails were promptly returned. I was asked to mail my payment to the owners and I hadnt been given a contract. I wonder if I would have received one without asking for one
Biggest con, I was told "The view is exactly what you see in the pictures" this is not entirely true. (The picture shown of the living room was not taken in this unit) While you do have a view of the pool and the bay, its not from this angle. And if you look at the building there is no way the pic was taken from a room, had to be taken from the top of the building or the air. The unit is in the corner where two buildings meet (kind of like the corner of a L) Also, there was not a flat screen TV in the living room (but talking to others staying in the hotel, their rooms had 42" flat screen TVs. It was an older tube tv, maybe 20" The view was very nice but the sunset was blocked by a big palm tree
Its listed as a condo but the building is actually a hotel. It appears that some units are owned and other are part of the condo but its all the same main building.
The unit could easily sleep 6 but there are only 2 chairs (that weren't in great condition) and one very small table on the balcony. The balcony is not huge but it would have been nice to have a couple more chairs available for the balcony.
Not sure how its considered "almost detached" being on the top floor but right in the middle where the two buildings meet.
The unit wasn't anything above and beyond. A few stains and rips on wallpaper. The view was great from the balcony but from the bedrooms you just see hallways or walls. No clocks in the bedroom.
The full bath you can only get to by going through the master bedroom. This is the only bathroom with a tub. The other main bathroom just has a stall shower.
It was not a problem for us but anyone wanting an adult or quiet weekend might want to look elsewhere. There were a lot of kids around the weekend we were there.
