The grounds are beautiful so you never have to leave the grounds.

Big Cat Rescue is only 1 mile away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You must stay here.

There were many things we liked about our stay.

It was SUPER CLEAN.

We LOVED the nice décor of not only the condo but the entire complex. We really loved the wonderful large 50" flat screen SMART TV, and ANOTHER TV in the bedroom.

Also, the blackout shades in the bedroom were a nice touch.

Convenient parking, plus Citrus Park Mall was very close as was LA Fitness and Publix's, BJ's wholesale club, Whole Foods. Another final nicety was the friendliness of the neighbors in the community.

Much Needed EMERGENCY Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I already had my ticket to Tampa when a previously confirmed property cancelled on me. Ann answer my emergency 'search' call the evening before my arrival. Her condo is immaculate and the memory foam mattress is a Dream to sleep on. Beautiful views, all dishes, cutlery, toiletries, amenities galore for her renters' use. And, she is fabulous with the eating recommendations. Her property is located very close to a mall, big and small store chains. Flat screen TVs in living room and bedroom are wonderful. Her basket of maps and local activity flyers are a godsend. Just what was needed at just the right time.

My Experience with the Host was great!

  • 5 of 5

My plans changed suddenly and I did not get to stay in the property. They refunded 100% of my money promptly as promised per the cancellation policy. I was so pleased with how quickly Ann responded to my emails. She was very friendly and helpful. I really do look forward to staying here in the future. We love Tampa and this area.

Awesome Experience

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a week's stay at Ann's property. The experience was awesome. From the inquiry to the checkout, it could not have gone better. The condo/apt. itself is immaculate. Plenty of room, very nice furnishings, and even a great TV. The complex itself is gated and felt very secure. The pool was very nice and not crowded. Nice screened in balconey. The location was convienient for all of the Tampa area, and there were many fine restaurants and a very nice mall all within a few minutes. The best part of the entire experience was my interaction with the owner, Ann. She was very helpful and a great host. I had a few questions during the booking process and she was responsicve and answered everything quickly. Unlike most private rentals, there were various toiletries and supplies available when I checked in. I could not have asked for better accomodations or service, and I would definitely rent this property again.

Perfect accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a two week stay at this property. The accommodation is perfect and has everything you could ever need in a home from home. Ann was a fantastic host giving us great tips to ensure we made the most of our trip. She is always at the end of the phone if you have any queries or even just advice on activities or places to visit and dining recommendations. The location is ideal for all areas of Tampa Bay and for dining and shopping. We have stayed at many self catering properties in Florida and this was the best equipped by far. We would highly recommend this property. Thank you Ann for making our stay such a pleasant experience

Owner's Response: When things like deaths, serious sudden illnesses causing hospitalization and other unforeseen emergency events occur, these things are usually beyond the control of most people. Unfortunately, Carol and Tim were affected by these circumstances with us. We almost had to cancel all of the guests for the month. It was a horrible "touch and go" situation. However, due to a turn in events, we were able to save some of the reservations. As you can see in our amazing reviews, we have NEVER been forced to cancel a reservation. This was our first time. Despite our numerous sincere apologies, Carol was very harsh with us. She continuously demanded that we reimburse her for the EXTRA money she spent to stay elsewhere. Her messages and voice mails became soo threatening and harassing that we contacted VRBO security. Carol threatened to leave a negative review if we did not pay EXTRA money to her. Of course we absolutely refunded 100% of the money she paid. But Carol was DEMANDING 50% more! She claimed that she paid DOUBLE to stay at a different location than what we were charging. VRBO reviewed our conversations with Carol and quickly identified hard PROOF that Carol was informed 5 to 6 days BEFORE her arrival date regarding the cancellation. So Carol is being dishonest about us only giving her 3 days notice. We can provide proof of this to all travelers. VRBO also stated that they offer insurance that protects travelers who face this this type of event. Carol refused this insurance. VRBO also stated that as owners, we did NOT violate any agreement with Carol or the terms of VRBO. So, if you engage these travelers, BEWARE and proceed at your own risk. It really scared us to see her being soo uncompassionate, aggressive and threatening. To all travelers, please consider purchasing the insurance to avoid situations like this. We are travelers ourselves who rent from owners. We understand that we are not renting a hotel room. We are renting from owners. Due to this, there is always a chance that our reservation could be cancelled. So, we always have a "Plan B". To help our guests, we maintain a list of hotels in our area for a number of reasons. So we were able to quickly refer Carol and Tim to a nice hotel less than 2 miles from the condo. But this was not satisfactory for Carol. Again, from the bottom of our hearts, we are really, really, really sorry for the cancellation. There were soo many things beyond our control. Warmly, Blue Rain LLC

Great for a winter break

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent almost a week here. Beautiful condo. Well maintained with free WiFi, cable, etc. Owner was very helpful and made available everything you might need. Condo is over 30 minutes from the shore but the view of a small pond from the patio is quite nice. Had a terrific time. Condo is on second floor and is not wheelchair accessible (not an issue for us but wouldn't work for someone with relevant disabilities). We absolutely go our money's worth.
