Hi, my name is Darryl. I divide my time between this place and Atlanta. I like the property because of the terrific sunsets nearly every evening, and it's located directly on the bay. I also like quiet Ruskin (home of the famous Ruskin tomato) with it's old school Florida charm. And if you like the night life, it's a 20 minute drive (via Port of Tampa) to Ybor City in Tampa, or a 20 minute boat ride to a marina at St. Pete. I hope you enjoy the place as much as I do!!!

EXCELLENT FIND

  • 5 of 5
This is a charming getaway located right on the water. The owner has thought of everything to ensure the comforts of home. We arrived at night to find a well lit entrance and a nice bottle of wine on the counter. There were plenty of towels and linens and a full sized washer and dryer so that carrying 2 weeks worth of clothes was not a must.The owner is extremely responsive if questions arise.

VERY COMFORTABLE VACATION FLAT

  • 5 of 5
The rental is the first floor of a two-floor house, with a nice back yard on Tampa Bay. The owner has provided everything necessary for a pleasant stay, and the place is thoughtfully and tastefully laid out. The neighborhood is a mix of new and older homes and the house is on a dead-end road, making it a very quiet and peaceful setting. Highway access is fine to Tampa, St Petersburg and the whole region. Would be glad to stay there again.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a month in this cottage style home. It was very clean and nicely decorated.
The sunsets were beautiful and it was great to be able to sit on the dock in the evenings.
There were many little extra things in the house(umbrella , chairs for outside,etc) that made the stay enjoyable. We would stay here again and I would recommend it to a friend.

GREAT GETAWAY ON THE BAY

  • 5 of 5
This cottage was the perfect place to stay for a our vacation. It's warm and inviting; and all the little "extras" just made the place perfect for us! Lots of attention to detail for the guests.
My son really enjoyed fishing and swimming off the dock. I started every day by sipping coffee at the edge of the dock and hoping to catch a glimpse the dolphins that often swim by. The sunsets are even better in person than they are in the photos on VRBO.
We found everything we wanted nearby - shopping, boat rentals, and attractions in Tampa and St. Pete are all very close.
This cottage is on my list of places I will stay again.

HAD A GREAT TIME!

  • 5 of 5
Excellent!!! We rented out this place for a month while our house was being built and we had an awesome time. The place is so cozy and it has everything you can ask for. We enjoyed every morning and every evening out on the dock where a few times we were visited by dolphins and a manatee! Thank you so much for making our stay the best. I would reccomend this place to anyone and I would definitely come back.

FELT LIKE HOME

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for about 3 weeks with our older dog with mobility issues and it was GREAT. No stairs for our baby to deal with. The home was so comfortable and clean, we felt like it was home. The dock and view are great. I loved to kayak every day and my husband loved the fishing!!! We were close enough to Tampa to go to a game or concert, but out of the busy big city. Great place to stay for sure!!!!
