Great place, great location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for me and my family. Pool and hot tub were very nice, with scenic views of the river. Very close to all kinds of convenient shopping. Owners live next door, and are there to help but also very respectful of privacy. Would definitely stay here again.

Clean house, quiet neighborhood, close proximity to running and biking trails. Relaxing Hot Tub

  • 5 of 5

A great place to relax and enjoy a slow pace. Neighborhood was nice for running and biking - but also only 0.3 miles to access point for the Upper Tampa Bay Trail for biking and running.

House is located within easy access to airport, interstate system and numerous restaurants and stores. Honeymoon State Park and sites in nearby Dunedin provided excellent views of sunsets.

Gazebo by the canal and chairs by the pool provided relaxing environment for reading and observing local birds.

Location allowed us to attend MLB spring training games for multiple teams.

Made daily use of the hot tub.

Perfect! Would love to have stayed longer!

  • 5 of 5

What a treat! The house had all amenities and was very clean and well kept. The pool was a dream - clean and large enough to really have fun in. It was nice being able to sit by the pool for breakfast and watch any activity on the canal. The property is only a few minutes from the airport and shopping malls - very easy to get to. It is also easy to reach Busch Gardens or Disney (a day trip). The property owners were always willing to help with ideas and restaurant suggestions. I wished we could have stayed longer and used the bikes, golf and tennis equipment! Next time will will stay longer :-)
