About the property

Studio, Studio + Attached Unit, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

This would be a fun get-away mini vacation on the historical Alafia River named by the Indians years ago; Alafia meaning 'River of Fire'.

You would have the options of 2 units:

Unit #1 is downstairs studio: Exclusively decorated white tile floor, l6 ft of closet space with mirror doors, all new appliances and granite counter tops. It has an outstanding view from the whole apartment. To just sit and relax or from the bed you can just marvel out at the river through the 20 ft of sliding glass doors. With this view, you can overlook the patio deck and boardwalk dock where you can enjoy fishing, relaxing, or water watching with pleasure. It has a small, man-made sand beach on 1/2 of the property and a fun tiki-hut on the other side for your favorite cocktail mixing, etc. This unit includes a washer and dryer.

Unit #2 is also downstairs adjacent to Unit #1. This unit is deocrated with the Florida Palm Tree atmosphere with a complete kitchen, living room, queen size bed, and full bath.

There are 3 happening spots on the river just minutes away offering live music, karaoke, food, and fun. There is a pontoon rental just across the river which you could use to visit the three hot spots, or go to the local spring up the river (very popular with the locals on the weekends). Heading out to Tampa bay (just minutes from the house), is a popular sand beach island where you can beach your boat and enjoy meeting with other boaters.

Great riverfront retreat

  • 5 of 5

Awesome riverfront location with great views. Quiet dead end street made it very serene. Had a great stay for a couple of nights. Very clean. Property owner lives on site and was very helpful.

Only the fishing and boating are on site the others listed are within short driving distance. During the Bucs football season this would be a good location with having some other things to offer than just a room. It would take you 30 min. to 50 min depending on traffic time.
