We're a couple who travels frequently for work. This home is our quiet getaway from living downtown. We enjoy love the privacy and quiet, Florida weather, and close proximity to everything. I hope when you walk in you enjoy our home as much as we do coming back to it every time.

Cherish Nortje purchased this house in 2012

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. We'd never leave if we didn't have to!

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.

Wonderful Rental!

  • 5 of 5
Pictures do not do this house justice, it is beautiful. The home was extremely clean, the beds were super comfortable, and the owners were great to work with. The pool and covered patio area were fantastic, I came with 4 kids and I think the only times they weren't swimming was when we are out exploring Florida. Location is great, neighborhood was well maintained and neighbors were friendly! We will definitely be returning!

Simply beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
Had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful home for 2 weeks, Sometimes when you are booking over the internet you are afraid things will not be as wonderful as they seem....not in this case. We where WOWED the minute we walked in the house. It is everything the pictures show and then some. The pool is wonderful, and no matter what the weather you can sit outside and relax or cook on the BBQ and be completely sheltered. The house is impeccably decorated and is equipped with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Shopping, beaches, restaurants all very close by. The neighborhood is private and quiet. Neighbors very friendly. Cherish and Gert are always available to answer any questions you may have. We had our small dog with us and boy did she love the fenced yard and the evening strolls, so quiet! We hope to be back at this home for a month next year! Well done Cherish and Gert!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
Excellent vacation and wonderful stay at this home. It had everything we could have needed and then some. We had six adults staying in the home and there was plenty of room. Our favorite part of the house was the pool area where we could eat all meals outside and lounge in the sun all day.

The location was perfect, it was very close to everything such as great shopping, many grocery stores, restaurants and golf courses !

Thank you for allowing us to rent your home.
Cheers,

The Poley's

Outstanding!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This home is wonderful! The pictures do not do it justice. When I first saw the listing, I was concerned that it was too good to be true. However, I went ahead and booked the house for our Spring Break. I am so thankful that I did. Cherish is extremely quick to respond to any questions. The property was extremely clean and well furnished. The pool area is fabulous. I enjoyed being able to stretch out on the couch while the kiddos swam away. We thoroughly enjoyed going to Honeymoon Island Park, Lowry Park Zoo, and Busch Gardens while we were there. I would highly recommend this house to anyone wanting to vacation in this area!

Wonderful Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We were blown away the moment we arrived. Sure, the photos are quite lovely but believe me, the home is even more beautiful when seen in person. It was everything we expected and more! We felt right at home from the first moment to the last and everything we needed was right at hand. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is fully stocked with appliances and cooking needs. We only needed groceris. Everything was spotless when we arrived. To top it off, Cherish and Gert are the nicest folks to deal with. During our visit we enjoyed the many local offerings including beaches, race track, great retaurants, Ybor City, even a comedy show at the Straz Center. Hopefully we will have the opportunity to come back again some time for another wonderful vacation.

Great Home!!!!

  • 5 of 5
The house was everything and more than what is described, close to everything and still close to nature. Had a wonderful stay and would recommend it without hesitation. The only negative I have to say is that although the description states it is a heated pool....it is solar heated therefore making it not so heated in the winter time. Cherish thank you again for welcoming me into your wonderful home!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Francesca for the wonderful review. Yes, you are correct that the pool is solar heated, making it swim-able about 12 weeks longer a year than an average pool. I have included a link in the details which will best describe the average temperatures year round for Tampa for anyone else interested in what the pool temp should be. In the summer the pool in near 96 F and depending on weather in March and November months it can be as high as ~75 F. It will be chilly during the winter (~mid Nov - Feb and possibly into March).

You're welcome back anytime!

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.
