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.

Beautiful home in need of TLC

  • 3 of 5

This house is in a beautiful location but needs basic maintenance and updating in the interior and exterior. The interior needs a thorough cleaning. All linen are worn and needs replaced. Basic maintenance - lights bulbs replaced, non functioning light switches, towel rack missing, window blinds do not work and no basic cleaning supplies (brooms etc). Poor tv reception upstairs, game room tv did not work and remote for main tv did not work properly. Also, DVD player did not work. Refrigerator and freezer smelled of raw fish. Everything in kitchen is dated, well worn and needs replaced. Cushions on all exterior chairs are worn out and needs replaced. We were only able to use the pool one day. Even after the pool maintenance people came out twice, we were not able to use the pool because of the green slime. The fishing docks planks needs replacing and the bench had splinters. There were holes in the screens both upstairs and downstairs. The place was sprayed by an exterminator but there were dead bugs downstairs. Also, the waterfall was disconnected. Beautiful place in beautiful location that needs TLC.

Fantastic time!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was absolutely fantastic. The house was very comfortable for two families totalling 10 people. The house really grows on you and is very peaceful. Fishing from the dock was great and exciting. Use of the canoe was also a huge plus. If you are thinking of a fishing trip, Oliver is an awesome Captain and guide. It was the highlight of the trip. Catching a variety of fish including sharks that were absolutely delicious. This is a house and trip that I would definitely book again and can't wait to go back to. The only thing that I would do differently is book two or three fishing trips instead of one. Kimmie's ice cream shop is also worth the visit as well as the manatee viewing center.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The house is very beautiful and has many amenities. We enjoyed staying with our Daughters and grandsons and visiting with our son daily. The water and pool was a big hit! Fishing by the house, grilling and hanging out was fun for all. There were many board games, and toys for the children as well as adults. Oliver was a most gracious owner and the vacation was wonderful. We were blessed to stay in this home! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is the second summer we have stayed at this great house. We find it is a perfect place for our family to gather and enjoy life on the water. The house has enough space to accommodate family members of all ages. There is a nice large kitchen for meal prep and gathering space for all. Out back is a great swimming pool and dock where we can tie up the boat. The boys love fishing and having the fish cleaning area is a great plus! Oliver is a great landlord who is quick to make certain that whatever you might need is taken care of. The house is near the beach, a great public park with basketball courts, tennis courts and a play area. There are several grocery stores near by and the kids love going to the drive in movie theater. We really have enjoyed both of our stays in Apollo Beach and are looking forward to going again next year.
