Waterfront, Rocky Creek Shoals - Unit 2


Property Details

Updated: Oct 24, 2016
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps

This not your high-priced, cookie cutter, typical Florida condo with granite counter tops, etc. Instead, this is a lovely 20 year old waterfront, manufactured home with a fenced yard in an older NW Tampa community. It is situated on a Rocky Creek saltwater canal that leads into Tampa Bay & the Gulf of Mexico. Includes a canoe for the adventurous.

Available by DAYS, WEEK(s) or MONTH(s). Flexible check in day and extra days may be added on. Please check "AVAILABILITY CALENDAR".


BRING YOUR BOAT & FISHING GEAR. Some basic fishing rods & tackle are also provided. If you're lucky you might catch a dinner of Redfish, Snook, Spotted Seatrout or Mullet off the dock or head for the bay or Gulf.

Great location, near shopping and main roads

  • 5 of 5

We moved to Tampa area and stayed in Rocky Creek Shoals for temporary housing. The house was great, very well stocked, better than a hotel, and Jack was a great host. The canal and fruit trees were an added enjoyment. We stayed in and did most of our cooking there including use of the propane grill. When we needed extra time for finding a permanent home, Jack and his wife went out of their way to accommodate our extended stay. Thanks, again, Jack for your generosity and hospitality!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We visited the Tampa area for our daughters 9th birthday. The location of the home was perfect for traveling to Clearwater and Busch Gardens. We were a short drive from both places and not right on a busy street. It was quiet, cozy, and we felt right at home. Home was clean. The starfruit tree was a plus! My daughter enjoyed all the little lizards running around and the tiny crabs by the dock. We have already told friends about the location and if we travel back to the Tampa area this is a house I would definitely love to stay in again.

Clean, comfortable, and conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

This property was less expensive than a small hotel room, but much more comfortable and spacious. Having a full kitchen, not to mention a grill on the porch, makes the stay much more comfortable.

Roomy and comfortable, very affordable.

  • 4 of 5

Older FL home located on the canal. We enjoyed being able to be on the water. Our son used the provided canoe. We saw mullet jumping every evening. We enjoyed cooking out on the patio with the provided gas grill. This home is not fancy (needs some minor cosmetic repairs/updates), but had everything we needed. Being affordable it allowed us to have our own space and privacy while visiting family in Tampa. Very easy to drive over to the beaches or access anyplace in Tampa. Several options for groceries and eating out nearby. ( We really appreciated the local maps that were available) The owner is very easy to work with. We would stay here again.
