About Miguel

I'm a Tampa native, and a retired Tampa police officer. Although I spend most of my time about an hour away, Tampa is still home. I am happy to share my urban tropical paradise with nice families from all over the world. This has given me the opportunity to make several friends over the years. It's great when I can travel to visit them, and explore new places. Music is my passion. I enjoy just about anything, when it's played by talented musicians.

Miguel purchased this house in 2001

What a wonderful place to stay during our visit to Tampa. The location is so convenient and the house had everything we needed as a family with teens! The pool, water view, gazebo, game room, kitchen...all the outstanding amenities are too numerous to list! Miguel is a pleasure to work with. We will definitely be back!!

Absolutely loved it. The best in Tampa

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? Everything as advertised was in place and working great. This residence provides the best of both indoor and outdoor living. You never get bored here. Swimming, hot tub, pool table, pinball, retro electronic games, juke box, unlimited cable vision to the big screen TV's, etc. Quiet, peaceful and breathtaking scenery. Our host, Michael was simply amazing. He went out of his way to ensure we were 100% satisfied. We WILL BE COMING BACK HERE AGAIN. You will not go wrong choosing this property!
