About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

This 3/2/2 pool home is a treasure on Channel A that has direct access to Tampa Bay. Marvel in the beautiful sunsets from the screened lanai and pool, dock, gazebo, living room, master bedroom, dining room or den. Manatee, dolphin, rays, turtles or osprey are all common sightings from this back yard! The Greenways Trail is within walking distance. Enjoy biking, roller blading or just take a walk in Tampa's beautiful, warm weather. When you're done, satisfy your thirst with freshly squeezed juice (seasonal) from the various citrus trees located on the property. Restaurants, malls, theme parks, and most everything are all conveniently located. This vacation home is the perfect fit for the fun-loving family, sports enthusiast, art-buff, relaxation-seeking retiree, or someone who wants it all! Whatever it is you're looking for, we sincerely hope you'll find it here in The Cove.

Cozy but spacious, peaceful but central!

  • 5 of 5

This house was more than we ever expected. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, there are more than enough towels...all color coordinated...and the kids, aged 7 & 9, had plenty of places to retreat to after hours in the big pool or when the fish got tired of them pestering them with their hooks and worms!! The garage is full of pool toys and floats, there's a cool box, fishing gear and we could use four of the bikes and helmets to cycle along the trail, which takes only 2 minutes to reach and seems never-ending along a river and through forests. We enjoyed cooling off afterwards down at the little dock hut, while the kids fished and we observed the active wildlife down on the river. And yes - they saved the best for last - we even got a glimpse of a manatee or two enjoying their breakfast on our last morning. Linda and Dave can be conveniently reached, are most welcoming hosts and extremely generous, but certainly offer the privacy wanted during a vacation! We can't wait to return!!

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. The kitchen was fully stocked with every pot, pan, bowl and accessory one would ever need. The pool was a pleasure and we appreciated the privacy,

Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

The home was lovely. It was perfect for my husband and me and our two teenagers (who were very happy to find out they were getting their own rooms). It was well equipped and served our purposes quite well. We enjoyed the pool after long days at the theme parks. Linda and Dave were great. Very easy to contact if there were any issues. I would highly recommend this property.

Beautiful clean house with amazing pool and canal

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Dave were amazing. That answered every question before and during our stay. If we needed anything they were available. We enjoyed the pool and spa so much. The house was so clean had so much room you could have two families stay. We had all the amenities we needed from paper towels and toilette paper to dish and laundry soap. It was nice

not to have to bring beach towels or buy

extras for beach. Our family also experienced the Dolphins and manatees in canal. We can't wait to return again.

Serene Waterfront Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Cove. The pool & backyard offered a serene setting to relax & enjoy the weather & the canal. We even got to see a few manatees. The house & property were clean & maintained very well. Dave & Linda are wonderful hosts. There are also many excellent restaurants in close proximity. We loved our stay so much that we booked it for next winter.
