We just came home to Tampa after a 9 day trip to Turtle Bay Condos. We found this great property through VRBO. When I first expressed an interest in the condo for the dates I wanted, Susan IMMEDIATELY contacted me back! I was very impressed because the places I contacted through VRBO before never got back with me.
This year, I decided to try VRBO again and found Turtle Bay Condos. Our timing was tight, but Susan emailed me immediately and responded with helpful info. After a couple of emails, she called me...surprising but welcomed! We settled on a date and condo 3B after she learned the ages of my kids. We settled on price and payment. About a day later, she let me know the condo was available earlier and that if my travel plans were flexible, we could book for 9 nights; and she worked a deal, I could not pass on that! I am SO glad we did! The day of our departure, she texted me and said our condo was cleaned and ready early and we could come in. I had to work, but to get this text was so refreshing knowing my family and I were ready to get on with vacation.
We got in and opened the door to 3B and WOW!!!!! What a great condo!!! Clean, comfortable, quiet and overlooking Lemon Bay! I was relaxed immediately, and my family went right to the dock to fish. Tuesday night we had a power outage from a storm...I am from Tampa, FL and deal with summer storms all the time and am used to those types of interruptions. We simply lit a candle and pretended it was camping...well, my phone rang, and it was Susan calling from California giving me an update on the outage! I was seriously impressed!!!!
Anyway, the condo was perfect for my family. I brought extra stuff like a wine opener, cooking tools, etc. and DID NOT need anything I brought. Very impressive array of cooking things! Really made me feel at home to cook and be happy!
My son and husband LOVED being right on the dock to fish! Beach was not too far away. It was prefect! I think I loved the screened in porch and having a private washer and dryer the best! No mosquitoes and an outdoor living space with a place to hang wet bathing suits and towels. How awesome to have its own door access so you don't drag wet and sandy stuff through the condo!
I definitely recommend Turtle Bay Condos! We are already talking about reserving for next year!
