This home is located on the outskirts of San Antonio off of SR52. This area is known for its proximity to hills and parks for first rate biking. Many Bike Clubs meet regularly in San Antonio to start their runs. Located close to numerous golf courses, ranging in the less expensive to the PGA qualifier Lake Jovita and more. St. Leo University is in the nearby area. San Antonio is a small, friendly, community area within easy driving to Dade City, Tampa, Orlando, or the beaches of the central Gulf area. Centrally located, near 1-75, with easy access to all that central Florida has to offer. This quiet, clean, reasonably priced, pet friendly, easily accessed property is a welcome change to a motel stay.
The rental property is next door to our home. The rental home became available for purchase this year and we wanted to increase our acreage next to our property. Our home with the rental property is situated on a combined 7 acres. Approximately 1/2 of the property abuts wet lands and Cypress Creek. We have the unique setting of being located off SR52 (major 2 lane highway) for easy access but live among many birds, squirrels, trees, flowers etc. for a beautiful Florida setting. Rural without being rural. We have fenced in the rental home to make it more pet friendly but all are welcome to explore the property among the live oak trees.
Nancy Heusted purchased this house in 2012

We enjoyed our time at tree tops. Nancy and John were very helful and extremely welcoming. The property is beautiful, you have the benefit of the relaxing country atmosphere with the convenience of being close to the interstate. Downtown Tampa and the Gulf of Mexico are under an hour away
We stayed 2 nights at the "Tree Tops" and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owners greeted us upon arrival and made us feel welcome. The house was clean, well-maintained and had everything that we needed. We thought that the pictures in the listing did not do the property justice. Our labrador retriever enjoyed running around the large fenced in beautiful yard. We would definitely recommend the "Tree Tops" to friends and would love to stay again!
A little about me first so you will see the review from my standpoint: My husband & I bought a 10 unit apt building Jan. 1999. I'm responsible for cleaning each apt to make them "move in ready." To me that means like a hotel room - You know someone's been there, but you don't want to see evidence of this. I also travel a bit, 4-6 trips per year for a week or more at a time.
This property is lovely. Big fenced in yard and gated at the driveway, nice for feeling "safer". I found it amusing to watch the chickens run around in the yard each morning when they were let out. Nancy & John seem real pleasant; I met them as they were coming in and I was going out (in the rain), so we didn't speak much. The carport on one side of the trailer and the "sun room" on the other is a wonderful convenience and makes the place that much more livable.
So here are the things that could use improving: I would have liked shampoo & conditioner to be available as well as a hair dryer. Not a big deal, but it would have been nice. There is a street light directly in front of the place which is great for lighting up the grounds, but there are no "black out" curtains, so it's bright inside as well.
Now, I'm not sure who is responsible for cleaning the place, but they missed quite a few areas: floors felt dirty, counters weren't washed, other people's hair in the bathroom, spider webs, dust bunnies and food under the cushion of the green chair - yuk.
This property is on a state road and with the trucks coming & going for the widening of this road it is noisy. However, I found running the fan during my sleep time drown out the traffic noise. Overall it was a good experience.
We only needed a place to stay for one night and this was perfect. It was very clean and comfortable.
very comfortable & homey. felt very relaxed. our fur babies had a blast. nancy & her husband were very helpful & knowledgeable of the area.we will definately stay again when in the area. wish all people & places were like this.
