Overview

Tampa House Rental Photos and Description

Tennis Courts 2 minute walk, Crystal River Manatees 1 hour away.

Remodeled in 2012, updated kitchen, bathrooms, fresh paint all new appliances as well as a Culligan water softener/filter. The home is 1780 square feet + garage. The yard is also completely fenced in. House has high speed wifi/cable tv included. Pool is solar heated - see link http://splashsolar.com/solar-pool-heating.html for average temperatures for when you are booking.

Uber (tax) will run you ~22$ with no traffic to get to the house from the airport.

The home is a classic split plan L shape with the master bedroom on one side, the common areas in the center and the 2 guest bedrooms on the other side of the home.

The master has a 42'' flat screen TV and an en suite bathroom with direct access to the pool. The guest bathroom has access to the pool and a full bath.

The common area has a 55'' flat screen TV (shared signal with the master bedroom TV (both watch the same station)) which you can watch while making dinner.

Seating for 4-6 is available at the breakfast table, seating for up to 10 at the formal dining and seating for 8-10 at the dining table out on the lanai. There is also seating available for 4 at the breakfast bar.

High speed Wifi with HD cable. Both TV's are HD ready. Vudu on the tv's allow for video rental on demand and netflix/hulu also available for use with your accounts.

Kitchen has everything you need to cook/bake including crockpot, all spices, and canned goods available.

*4 Tennis rackets at the house available for your use.

*blow up kayak which fits in the car to go to Crystal River (1 hour away)

*golf courses all around and use of my husband's golf clubs if you'd like

Quiet neighborhood you can hear a pin drop at night - lots of restaurants within 3 miles of the house and Citrus Park Mall less than 1.5 miles away. Very private backyard, house backs up to conservation grounds and the park which is closed at night.

Our home is setup so that when we travel from Colorado we take no luggage and simply walk in. This home doesn't have 'rental furniture', 'a sparse kitchen', or 'crappy bedding/beds'. I can walk in from the grocery store and make thanksgiving dinner for 20+ and enjoy the a fantastic night of sleep. Rest assured when you book our home we're immediately available for any issues and we have our next door neighbors helping us property manage the place as well. We visit the home ourselves often so it's kept in amazing shape.

About Cherish Nortje

We split our time between living in Vail, CO and Tampa.

Cherish Nortje purchased this house in 2012

Why Cherish Nortje chose Tampa

Close to everything, 20 restaurants within 3 miles, private enough to swim naked in the pool, golf courses around the corner, tennis courts behind the house.

What makes this house unique

Private fenced in back yard and fantastic outdoor furniture. We tried to make the lanai almost better than the inside of the house. We eat outside all winter long and sleep on the patio after we swim. We love the wildlife as well, turtles come into the driveway and the random armadillo can be seen at night, or day, however typically as road kill.

The Best Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was by far one of the best vacation homes we've enjoyed in a while. First of all, the home's owner was very accommodating and helpful throughout the registration, plus she responded to our other questions/concerns we may have had. The inside was very clean and the kitchen contained all the neccessary Instruments for creating a gourmet meal. My favorite part of the home was the outdoor pool and its surrounding lush landscaping of banana trees, various species and sizes of palm trees, and flowering Oleander bush. Surrounding the outer perimeter of the pool were newly planted Gardenia bushes that still bloomed beautiful white gardenias. I loved drinking coffee poolside just before daybreak to hear the many singing and chattering birds, crickets, and frogs. At daybreak the squirrels made their presence known too.

The home was perfectly located to many venues such as, Busche Gardens, Big Cat Rescue, The Ft. DeSoto Ferry to Egmont Key and to Shell Key.

This home and it's quiet neighborhood was the most perfect home-away!

Great Choice

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this home for the month of February 2015 and had a lovely time. It is located in a development off Sheldon Road near the Citrus Park Town Center and various other shopping strips which makes the location extremely convenient. The development is nice with sidewalks making it easy to take a walk without leaving the community.

The house is decorated with high end contemporary furniture, appliances and accessories. The bedding, towels, etc., were all very lovely. The home was very clean and ready for us upon our arrival. The owners provided supplies and miscellaneous foods that made it one of the best equipped homes we've ever rented.

We had a few miscellaneous issues that arose during our stay, but Cherish responded immediately and all were corrected. She was extremely responsive and concerned about making our stay perfect and for that we thank her very much.

Lastly our deposit was returned within a few days of our departure which was also very much appreciate.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation. The home was beautiful and the location perfect. We were close to dozens of restaurants and shopping. My kids spent most of their time in the pool. The backyard is very private and neighborhood quiet. Cherish was quick to reply to any questions. We had a great time and would definitely stay here again.

PERFECT HOLIDAY HOME!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for home away from home, then this is the place for you. Spacious, clean, comfortable, relaxing, quiet and the decor is absolutely beautiful. The moment you walk in you feel right at home. The kitchen is equipped with everything you'll ever need and the house is well furnished.

The location is perfect, situated in a peaceful neighbourhood and very close to the airport, shops, restaurants, the beach and the freeway.

Cherish was an absolute pleasure to deal with - quick to respond to questions, providing us with tips and additional information about the surrounding area.

We had a very enjoyable time and felt rested when we left. We won't consider staying anywhere else again when we visit Tampa/Orlando.

what a great get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The home is beautiful, the pictures do not do it justice! It was wonderful to go on a vacation stay in a lovely home and bring the dog. We visited the beach and Disney World all in one week. I definitely know where we are staying our next visit to Tampa.

There is an amazing massage place on Sheldon about 1.2 miles from the house called Spring Massage. I've traveled all over the world and haven't had a better massage than the women there give. Highly recommended for I believe 60$ an hour. Worth every penny.
