5-Star stay in premier location!!
Outstanding stay at Scott’s South Tampa rental. Comfortable, clean, and modern... exceeded my expectations. The beds are are very comfortable, which was needed after a few long days of travel. The location is great and puts you in walking distance to Bayshore Blvd and the trendy SOHO neighborhood. Scott was very responsive throughout the booking and even left a nice welcome gift. Not all VRBOs live up to expectations, but this one does and we would return without hesitation!
Very clean and maintained.
No problems at all. Bottle if cab was nice extra touch.
Fabulous Rental in Hyde Park
The pictures for this rental did NOT lie. This rental unit is highly recommended! Upon our arrival this home was nothing short of turn key class! The unit provided TV’s in both bedrooms along with fabulous comfortable king and queen beds and many pillows. Two sinks in the upstairs bathroom along with hairdryer and small steamer and more than adequate towels. Top of the line appliances throughout the kitchen, large washer and dryer provided on the first floor. Also available were the little things... bug spray, batteries, paper products , spices, etc. Conveniently located in a nice neighborhood and only a couple blocks to beautiful Bayshore Blvd. Scott went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. I rate this a 5 star experience with Scott being a fabulous host!! Hope to be back again soon!
3 Star at best
There were many problems with the property. The frig was full of used food, the grill and the oven were unclean. Scott did try to make it right but my vacation was more important that me complaining. The outside of the property was dirty and had signs of age. The path to the door was scary. we did find the motion sensor light after a couple days, but it was too far back to come on as we entered the path.
it was nice inside and if you wanted just a place to stay, it was ok.
I’m shocked, saddened and disappointed with your 3-Star review. I understand there were some issues with the new cleaners when I accommodated your early check-in request the day of your arrival on 3/21. Upon your arrival on I asked if everything was satisfactory and let you know there were two complimentary bottles of 90+ rated wine waiting for you...Your response was, "the property looks nice." The following day on 3/22 you indicated there was a problem with the oven, grill and refrigerator. I asked you to forward photos so I could address it appropriately. I agreed the grill and oven should have been cleaned better prior to your arrival and the new cleaners had not done a proper job. However, I was very surprised with your complaint about the condiments in the refrigerator. I did indicate to you that all of the condiments were supposed to be in the refrigerator. I then offered to remedy the situation and have the cleaners come back to clean the grill and the oven or give you monetary compensation sent to you directly through VRBO. You chose to take the money, which I sent immediately. In turn, you thanked me, "for handling the problem correctly". The following day on 3/23 you contacted me regarding your concerns with the leaves on the ground from the oak tree. I checked with the cleaners and they admitted they had accidentally taken the broom and dustpan and improperly swept the leaves. I offered you a secondary monetary compensation, which was sent immediately through VRBO, which you also accepted. I then overnighted a new dustpan and broom to the property which was delivered to the property the following day on 3/24. This property is professionally managed. The hospitality, customer service, cleanliness, and the overall guest the experience are paramount. Any issue or circumstance a guest has is taken seriously and every possible consideration is taken to maintain an excellent guest experience. This property has Eight 5-Star reviews from VRBO and collectively over Thirty-Five 5-Star reviews from three different short-term rental platforms with zero reviews being less than 5-stars. Although you did indicate, “Scott did try to make it right but my vacation was more important that me complaining.” I am very disappointed. Every possible effort, remedy, option and consideration was offered to you in order to mitigate your concerns and complaints, ensure you had an enjoyable stay, and had an excellent guest experience.
Terrific property close to everything
Where do I start? Scott's property is immaculate! It was everything we imagined and then some! The house was fully stocked with everything.
Walking distance to the water and the vibrant SOHO district. This was our first VRBO and it has set the bar for future rentals.
Anytime we are in the Tampa area we will be contacting Scott about his property.
Scott was very accommodating! Not one problem during our stay.
Thank you for your review. Im very pleased to hear you enjoyed the space and your stay. I look forward to hosting your next trip to Tampa.
Great Location and Customer Service
We stayed at the property for a long weekend guys trip. The location was perfect - short walk to Bayshore, short car ride to downtown area or Ybor City, and walking distance to SoHo. The owner exceeded expectations with robust communication and very quick to answer any question that popped up. Bedrooms upstairs were spacious. The kitchen was just right with enough space to cook and eat around a table. French doors open up to a patio, which we were able to enjoy with the nice weather. Very happy with the experience and would stay again.
Nice touch - bottle of wine at our arrival and a cornucopia of scented soaps to choose from in the shower. Only con was the looseness of the toilet seats, but a net positive for the number of jokes it resulted in over the weekend with the group (like riding a bull, really worked my core in there, etc.). In all seriousness, it wasn’t a big deal.
No matter the group or reason for your visit, book this spot. You won’t regret it.
Thank you very much for your review, and I really appreciate your feedback. I am happy to hear the loose seats resulted in amusement for your group, and thank you for bringing it to my attention. The loose seats have been addressed. I look forward to hosting your next trip to Tampa. Thank you again.
