We just returned home from our third stay in this fantastic house. This time we had 5 wonderful weeks (dec-jan), and we just love this house. It is perfect in size for our 5 person family, has a heated pool (important during winter), perfect location with plenty to do within a short drive radius, and the house is very well maintained.
Michal (the owner) is very easy to deal with by email, and Amy and Jimmy (the caretakers) keep the house very clean and are attentive to our every need.
The area close to the house has numerous things to offer: plenty of parks with basketball, baseball, skating, BMX and swings/play areas. Within 5 minutes drive from the house you have Panera Bread, Starbucks, and the highly recommended Green Market Cafe. If you rent/bring a bike you can pick up Oldsmar trail from the house, bike on thru Safety Harbor with the wonderful Philippe Park, and then continue onto the Ream Wilson Trail. Roundtrip a 35km ( 21 miles) ride.
With Tampa close by you have Lowry Park Zoo, Florida Aquarium, MOSI, Busch Gardens +++, then Legoland (1 hour drive) and Disneyworld/Seaworld/Universal Studio (2 hour + drive).
We highly recommend this house, and are already planning our next stay.
