Priced right, clean and adequate
I'll start with the positives. The house is priced well for a 3 bedroom rental. You can hardly stay in a hotel for the price. My kids all had a place to sleep, and the adults could hang out without disturbing them while they slept. The house was clean without any weird smells or critters to worry about. And unlike other VRBOs we've stayed in, we weren't required to pre-clean in order to get our deposit back. Now for the criticisms. Not really negatives, but perhaps helpful to others trying to choose. This house is in a sketchy part of town. I lived in Tampa growing up, and this is not a great neighborhood. It was quiet with no problems, but if you know the area, it's not desirable. Also, the main features of the house were dated. Not quaint, old house quirks, rather just old and hard to use. The shower head sprayed straight at my face, and I'm 5'2". If you were taller, you certainly would have to squat to take a shower. The stove and dishwasher were very old, probably at least 20years. The cabinets were old and dingy in the kitchen and bathroom. The living room and bedrooms were comfortable, however. We didn't do much cooking, but if I had planned to, I would have been very displeased with the kitchen. The dining room was nice, and the refrigerator was new. Definitely a mixed bag. It's hard to find a place without a minimum stay at this price, so if we had to make a quick trip into town again, I would possibly stay here again. It is conveniently located and TJ is very accommodating, and responsive.

Owner's Response: I wish I would have known about the shower head. I will install a new one today.
