About the property

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 25 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. Kayaks available for the use of the adventurous at your own risk.

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.

Quiet. Functional.

  • 3 of 5

Nice touch with the gift and the Xmas tree set up😁. The neighborhood was quiet. The place is well furnished and equipped. Nice to have the carport to park under. The grill worked fine. There was a strange odor inside and the showers in master bath didn’t drain very well. The dryer wasn’t working very well until I pulled it away from the wall to straighten the vent hose out some. Over all it was a decent place to stay for us.

Owner's Response: Three days before the guest arrival we had re-carpeted the entire house. The odor was a smell associated with the manufacture of the carpet and since has faded away. Next time I carpet I will leave a few more days before the next guest. Shower drains have been fixed. It is very helpful when a departing guest leaves to leave a note on minor issues that need attention. This is the easiest and often only way for me to know of a problem.

Great Comfortable Stay for the Price!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and even extended our stay for a couple more days. The owner reaponded fairly fast and on top of any issue or concern that we had. This place was packed with a lot of dishwater and cooking utilities. Wifi and cable works well. Everyone will enjoy the mango and starfruit tree. Highly recommend. Water pressure to shower was wonderful!! Great stay..

This rental served its purpose well. Its a great place to recoup after running around St. Pete/Tampa all day. The kitchen had plenty of cooking utensils. The gas grill worked great. There were fishing poles to cast into the water in the back yard. There is a mature mango tree with tons of fruit. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Would recommend this property.

  • 4 of 5

The inside was in very good condition and very comfortable. The dishes and the pots and pans were spread over several cupboards and left no room to store food. (I moved things around a bit to accommodate our food.) Outside it would have been nice if the yard had been raked and the grass cut. (Just that time of year I believe as things were just starting to really become green.) Overall we greatly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the property. We want to thank Jack for his hospitality. We hope you (Jack) and your wife enjoy our token of Canada and of our appreciation.
