I'm a retired Tampa police officer. My career was dedicated to helping people in need. This career was rewarding in many ways. The good feeling inside from helping others in need is just one example. I now manage my long term rental properties, and this one vacation rental. I really does give me a similarly good feeling by being able to share my tropical paradise with nice families, and to help make their vacations just a little bit nicer by having this amazing property to enjoy.

Miguel purchased this house in 2001

It's truely a tropical paradise located in the heart of historic Tampa. It's 3/4 acre private riverfront property provides a peaceful, tranquil environment in which to relax after a long day of active tourism.

Being in the heart of the city, but secluded in a quiet nieghborhood along the beautiful Hillsborough river. This is absolutely the perfect location!! You can go just minutes in any direction and find anything you would need......golf, shopping, dining, pub's, etc

PEACEFUL AND BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5
We loved this place. The house is spacious and clean. As nice as the house is, we spent most of our time outside. It really is an oasis. The palm trees and greenery provided privacy from the neighbors. We glimpsed the neighbors, but never heard them. We felt like we were on our own tropical island. I enjoyed my morning coffee on the dock some mornings, under the pavilion facing the river other mornings. It was so quiet and peaceful. The neighborhood is quiet and very well located. We were minutes from everything. The pool was spectacular. It is huge. We swam 3 to 4 times a day. My grandson would have stayed there the entire time. He also enjoyed feeding the koi in the pond. Miguel was a great 'concierge'. I wish I could convey how relaxing and comfortable we felt while we stayed there. We honestly hated to leave. Our experience there has set the bar for our future vacations. If we go back to Tampa, we will definitely try to stay here again. Thank you Miguel.

THE GARDENS MADE THIS PLACE TO TROPICAL PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We booked this villa based on the photographs of the gardens and pools for our honeymoon and we were not disappointed by them one bit!
I loved the huge pool and jacuzzi and would never tire of the view of the river. The gardens were very well maintained throughout.
Inside the house is incredibly spacious, the seating area is great with large tv, blu ray and netflix.
Bedrooms again were very big, only I thing that could improve them is possibly a few more bedside tables and some lamps?
Air con is good and rooms remained cool throughout the night.
Miguel was always on hand throughout to answer our many questions by phone or email.

We would love to return here again, hopefully to celebrate our anniversary!

Thanks Miguel for everything :-)

GREAT FACILITIES AND A GORGEOUS OUTDOOR SPACE

  • 4 of 5
This was a great place to stay in Tampa. It is reasonably centrally located, with amenities not too far of a drive away. You will need a car for this house though, make no mistake.

The outdoor space is fantastic -- there is a very large veranda which you could just imagine hosting terrific evening events. We didn't spend a lot of time in the pool because the weather wasn't cooperating too much, but we did enjoy the hot tub. Kids loved feeding the fish, of course.

Inside, the house is well-equipped, with plenty of couch seating in the main room. The kitchen is a bit on the smallish side but certainly functional. Leopard-print pool table! Arcade was a unique touch to pass some time.

The house was clean and generally as described. Beware the wooden corner posts on the master bed! It was designed to cause pain to shins (multiple people did the same thing hitting them). We saw a few nasty larger bugs in the house but I don't think you can be in this environment and not have anything like that.

We had a nice time and this proved to be a good home base for a few days in Tampa.

Owner's Response: A first I thought 4 out of 5 stars was not a great review, so I contacted the guest to ask for his suggestions on how to earn 5 stars, if he were to visist again. He assured me that he had been very pleased with my house, but sent me a link showing pictures etc of the last house he stayed in and gave a 5 star review. This made my 4 star score from him seen great, given this new perspective.
It was a beach front 5 bedroom 5 bathroom (all ensuite) $10-20 million dollar mansion on St. Martin, Carribean. It was unbelievable! Depending on the season and length of your stay the price ranges from $2357 to $6428 PER NIGHT!!! This sight wont allow me to include the link to show the mansion, but its photos are like the cover of a high end travel magazine. 4 out of 5 from this family, is really like a 10 out of 5 star rating if price were a factor!!!!

GREAT HOUSE FOR A GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
A group of 4 guys rented this house for a golf weekend in Tampa. We couldn't have been more pleased. Lots of room, well equiped, great outdoor space made it perfect for our weekend. The location on the river made it very special, plus central access to all of Tampa, St. Pete and Clearwater. Miquel (the owner) was very accomadating and pleasant to deal with.

REALLY FUN HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We came to visit our daughter who is attending University of Tampa. The house is quite spacious and so much fun! We were able to entertain my daughters college friends - they enjoyed the jukebox, arcade games, pool table, huge TV with Netflix and the pool & hot tub! Despite some inclement weather we were still able to enjoy the outdoors under the large covered pavilion. The bedrooms are very roomy and comfortable and there are 4 bathrooms! The property is surrounded by really tall bamboo and the sounds from the koi pond and waterfall make you feel like you are truly in a tropical oasis. The location on the river is ideal. It is so close to everything...in Tampa. The restaurants in SOHO (S. Howard), Ybor City! The Riverwalk and Bayshore are great for running/walking or biking.

NICE OUTSIDE SPACE BUT VILLA QUITE SHABBY

  • 3 of 5
The outside space is the draw in the property. The pool, hot tub and green surroundings are lovely.

The villa itself is however is a bit of a letdown, particularly the kitchen. The main problems are the lack of kitchen equipment and crockery, which made it difficult to prepare any sort of meal for our family of 10. The kitchen cupboards were cracked, which let ants and was very annoying, and they were pretty dirty which was disappointing.

Another issue was the cracked tiles in the main part of the villa, we were holidaying with a two year old who is into everything and it is dangerous to have sharp broken things on the floor

Overall the outside space, the location and the size of the property were very good and, if you like retro arcade games you'll love it, but its in need of a good scrub, the grounds need to be tidied and renovations carried out because in it's current state it wasn't really value for money

we did however have a wonderful holiday and enjoyed many of the sights of Tampa has to offer.

Owner's Response: Frankly I'm shocked by this review. I have had numerous rave reviews and very happy guests. The overwhelming comments from arriving guests are things like: "Wow, the pictures on the web are great, but don't do this gorgeous place justice!" We knew from the web that is was a very nice place, but it's simply incredible in person!" "The place is just soooo much bigger than it looked in the pictures!" "This place truely is a tropical paradise in the middle of Tampa!"

This home, grounds, and pool are all profesionally cleaned and maintained. Including monthly pest control. The house is thoroughly cleaned at least once, and many times twice per week. It was cleaned prior to, and mid visit (a week after arrival) for this family, with no complaints to the house keepers. After their departure, everything within the reach of a 2 year old was covered in food and grime (and had to be thoroughly scrubbed).......I do believe that this was the main source of their cleanliness complaint.

The house is very spacious, but its only set up for a maximum of 8 people. They were well aware that I was making an exception for their large family, and they would have to make the extra dining provisions. The kitchen appliances are only 1-5 years old, so I'm not sure why they found it so disappointing. I am not a chef, but I will have the cookware and kitchen equipment evaluated for adequacy by someone more knowledgeable than myself.

There were two cracked tiles in the entry to the locked pantry (which is where I store personal items, and is not included with the rental). A person would have had to go out of their way to reach them. These have been scheduled for replacement between guests on Nov 5.
