Excellant Tampa Bay Vacation Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

This tampa area rental house is located in apollo beach, florida just south of tampa and located on the bay and close to sightseeing, entertainment parks, a large protected manatee sightseeing area and numerous spring traing baseball stadiums.

The nicely lit,heated pool with a waterfall, pin ball machine ,board games and videos, fishing and crabing gear, canoe ,outside screened area for gas grill cooking and patio and two floors of screened lounging areas and balconies overlooking the water and the perigone sea eagles elevated platform were all just great.

The beautifuly landscaped house easily accomadated my family of 12.the house is well protected for younger children and the entire family enjoyed the eight bikes providered by the owner and the pool floats and other sunbathing gear. The 4 bedroom/sleeping areas with 4 bathrooms and a washer and dryer along with your large very well equipped kitchen incliuding one electric and one gas fullly equipped chef stoves made visiting and cooking for a large family very easy.

I believe the whole family enjoyed the offer of the owner to allow his macaw bird stay at the house and everyone enjoyed speaking to him both while he was in his interior cage and outside in his large enclosure beside the front entrance.

Everyone appreciated the owners close followup and availability to help us with any questions about the house.

the numerous flat screen tvs,dvd players ,intercom with music both in the family room, several bedrooms and the game room and bar area was great.

The local shopping center areas including the large publix food store only 5 minutes away made it easy to purchase food ,beer and spirits if needed and other needs quite easy.

Having a costco and super walmart a short 15 minute drive handled our need to purchase a replacement for a damaged suitcase as well as gas purchases or any other needed items very convenient and least expensive. My whole family felt the rental of this beautiful home was a great decision while visiting the tampa area and since it was minutes from us route 75 it allows quick traveling around florida and only 15 to 20 minutes from the tampa airport.we very much recommend this home and the helpful owner who also captains deep sea fishing for his tenants at most reasonable rates from the several fishing boats tied up by this home.if you and your family are considering the tampa bay area this lovely, reasonably priced home is a perfect homebase for your next vacation.

Could be pretty close to heaven!

  • 3 of 5

This house is in a great location - close to Publix and boat ramp to put in our boat. It is not the best but doable. The yard's drive is difficult to maneuver your boat trailer. We found a restaurant that was awesome and went by boat - Circles. Delicious! There were 11 of us for part of week and there was lots of room. The lot has alot of waterfront where there was a nice breeze usually blowing. The waterside was fenced for our two dogs which was great. Now the negative part is the lack of care to the lot and home. The dock needs many boards replaced. I would have enjoyed us all sitting on it but couldn't. The towels were in terrible shape. The kitchen needs to have most pots and pans replaced and everything cleaned really well. Everything is dirty and greasy including the small appliances are dirty. There needs to be a dresser in upstairs room that has 3 beds. The upstairs bathroom needs towel rod replaced. The master bathroom needs a toilet paper rod. If these few things were taken care of it would be an incredible place that people would want to go back to every year.

This could be a great place with a little effort.

  • 3 of 5

This place could be very nice. But with the condition it is in it is not worth the money. The pool was not clean even after the pool company cleaned it. The out door furniture all needs to be replace. The place needs to up date pots, dishes, glases, bedding, and towels. All of these items are in sad shape..

The place was clean and in a good area.

Fun. Relaxing. Comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The property was just like it was described. We couldn't have asked for anything better. Oliver was the best. Very easy to work with. I would highly recommend this property. We hope to be able to stay here again some day. The house was nice, clean, comfortable and very homey. We loved be able to have Josh stay there with us. Josh is not a load bird, and just added to our stay. While we were there, the guys and Oliver worked out a deal for him to take them fishing. They really enjoyed themselves and would recommend it to anyone.

Family Holiday,10 people all ages.

  • 3 of 5

Property was as described in terms of location etc. and was clean and tidy.

Overall though it needed refreshing in terms of basic utensils, crockery, cutlery, glassware and other day to day items. In addition some other maintenance items need addressing. None of this however detacted from the location and the friendly service of the owner who was readily on hand for assistance. Everybody enjoyed being able to utilise the pool, barbecue, fishing and canoeing at the property and there were a number of restaurants, shops and other facilities close by.

We particularly enjoyed a fishing trip with Olly and Sean and would recommend this to anyone who enjoys fishing or a boat trip.

I will recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was excellent. We had a party of 12 both children and adults and there was plenty of room. Oliver the owner was always available and very helpful. The Pool was great for the kids and the property was very peaceful. Josh the resident bird was a big attraction for the kids. They had a blast feeding him. Overall it was an excellent stay and Oliver the Owner is also a charter captain and took us out for a great half day of fishing at a reasonable price.
