Absolutely Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

This is the most beautiful spot that my family and I have ever stayed at in Tampa. The views are amazing at this home. You have everything that you need here. We enjoyed our stay so very much that we will absolutely stay at this beautiful spot again! You have plenty of room. We enjoyed beautiful sunrises and sunsets here. We fished a lot in the canal and loved watching all the sail boats and jet skis that went by. We enjoyed the pool very much too, was just right for us!❤ The view from the kitchen was AMAZING!! We also enjoyed the pool table as well. I gave this home 5 stars and would give it more if I could. Would definately stay here again! Thank you for sharing this beautiful place with us!😎?🚣?‍♂️🌞?

Great location on Tampa Bay and the house was very spacious.

  • 4 of 5

Great location on Tampa Bay and the house was very spacious.We had a great time there the house was laid out quite nicely the screened in pool was an awesome future. My only recommendation is to add a cabinet to the bathroom for countertop space and to make sure they were cleaning people are doing a better job. But overall I would definitely stay there again and I would recommend it.

Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

I recently had the pleasure of enjoying this house for our family vacation. The house was comfortable both inside and out. I like to cook and found the house well stocked with all the cooking utensils I could possibly need. The pots and pans were perfect for accommodating large group cooking. We loved the outside area. The lanai was much larger than expected and provided a comfortable environment to be outside even if it was pouring rain (which luckily it only did twice during our visit). There were two large tables and more than 8 chairs - so plenty of lounging space for everyone. We brought our boat and very much enjoyed the luxury of having our own dock and being to able to step right out of the house and go for a ride. We saw a dolphin and a stingray in the water at the dock. The kids loved it! The owner was immediately responsive to our needs throughout the week and we appreciated his excellent customer service. We felt at home from the moment we arrived until we left. I would highly recommend this house for families that need some elbow space and also enjoy time together. Great Family Vacation!

This is the worst place I have ever stayed. We get here and the so called "hot tub" they advertise is not what so ever a hot tub!!!!! It has no heat to it at all. Then later that night after showering we noticed in living room that the whole bathroom and living room was completely flooded!! So we call the property manager and he had nothing to say to help us out all. So we spent our Christmas Eve night cleaning up a flooded house! Awful custom services. Not to mention NONE of the appliances work!!!! Completely ruined our Christmas. DO NOT STAY HERE.

Owner's Response: I was actually very surprised to see that a review was left like that considering everything was handled sufficiently and I have the text message correspondence between me and the tenant that shows just that. Apparently a fitting came loose on a pipe on Christmas Eve. I spoke with them and informed them I would call the owner and get back with them. I called emergency plumbing services and as I awaited their call back to let me know if they serviced the area and/or had a technician available, I drove a few miles up the road to a late night mass that the owners (my parents) were attending to let them know of the problem as their phones were turned to silent. Within 20 minutes of being informed of the problem, I called the tenants back to see what else I could do for them to rectify the situation. The gentleman said he had turned the hot water off and they would be fine with it as long as someone was there Monday to fix the problem...I remember the gentleman saying,.."it's no problem we're Hoosiers". Problem was fixed Monday and I touched base and everything was ok......then I see the 'review' a day later. As a property manager I did everything I could do for them and I don't know what more to say.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great stay in this home, close to everything and pictures are accurate.The owners were very pleasant and quick to respond to any questions we had. We had many great nights swimming in the pool and watched beautiful sunrises/sunsets on the dock, even got to see a dolphin swim right under it! The only thing I would suggest for this home is tables and dressers in the two rooms that did not have them, besides that, this home was plenty spacious for my husband, 3 teenage daughters and myself. Thank you to the owners for letting us stay in your wonderful home!
