The outside property was always kept clean and tidy.

  • 3 of 5

Clean and neat outside areas. A little noisy from the luggage being dragged through the walkway. But nothing to worry about. The condo we stayed in was outdated, unkempt, and dirty. My cleanliness standard is high so I spent a great deal bleaching the tub and toilet in the master bedroom, cleaned mold from refrigerator with ammonia as well as sinks and counters. The place needs a good deep cleaning and maintained. The sliding door was difficult to open so we sprayed WD40 on it. Helped a little. We kept tripping over a metal piece betweeen the door and balcony. That’s got to be a safety issue. After I cleaned I felt more comfortable, but I shouldn’t have to clean the place when I’m paying for a nice condo during my vacation. I could go on but I feel lucky to be able to afford such luxuries when others can’t. Had it been clean, I would’ve given it 4 stars. All it takes is a little hard work and some time to make that place sparkle.

Bay view but inside is dirty and worn/dated

  • 3 of 5

We arrived after the 3:00 check in time so the room was “ready”. Used bathroom first off and there was hair all over the floors in both bathrooms and candy along the patio door so they clearly don’t vacuum! The photo of the Living room and master bedroom are NOT the ones for this unit. Actual unit is worn, uncomfortable blue couch with a very low back rest, a solo sitting chair and small dining room table with 3 chairs. The laminate counters in the kitchen have clearly been used as a cutting board. Bedding seemed clean. Most of the towels seemed clean but there were plenty so we found 2 clean ones for the week. No maid service during our week stay so use wisely! The bedroom windows and side family room window faced the neighbors or opened onto the walkway so the only view we used was out the patio door but that’s the bay so that was fine. Frat house atmosphere with dated room and loud, pot smoking neighbors!

We give it three stars because it did have a nice view of the bay especially for sunsets. Great location for Tampa airport, Clearwater and St Pete. Plenty of parking. Food from grill at the pool was good! Elevator on site so you don’t have to do the stairs with your luggage.

For the same price I’d recommended the Holiday Inn Express down the road. They too have water views but maybe they vacuum and they have free breakfast!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review: Bedrooms bedding and living room couch are brand new and the blue new sofa-bed replaced the old yellowish sofa still shown in the picture. The 4th dining chair and an additional 5th folding leather dinning chair have always been there with at least 3 additional highchairs. The 2BR/2BA is directly on the waters of Tampa Bay exactly as shown in the pictures. The condo was thoroughly cleaned and vacuumed, otherwise a simple phone call/text/email would have remedied any potential shortfall right away. Plenty of clean towels - at least 8 of each - were there. Sorry, that we do not provide daily maid service you requested as stated in my first written communication.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This was a great location if you want to be near everything in Tampa. The condo itself was a little past it's prime and could use a freshening. The host was very kind and helpful. Even left us drinks and snacks. Welcome surprise after a long trip. We encountered a noisy group next door area that were up on the stairs, balconies, and hallways, reveling in an apparent new wedding quite loudly. Other than that, it was a very pleasant stay. Thank you to the owner, very nice.

Conveniently located in a serene place.

  • 5 of 5

Walkable to Ben T Davis beach, 15 miles from both Clearwater. 30 minutes from Busch gardens. While you are not going anywhere the seaport community has enough to make you feel like you are in a beach vacation!

It has a mini beach by the bay, a fishing pier, pool, bar and a porch deck!

The condo comes with just enough amenities and appliances required for a vacation. Shabnaam is a friendly person and they filled the fridge with free fruits and drinks for us, very kind. They even offered an extended stay on the day of checkout since it wasn’t booked that day, again very friendly and understanding. Definitely recommend this place and we would stay again if we get a chance.

Great stay and great location

  • 5 of 5

Our host couldn't be more accommodating and all responses to any questions were very timely.

We traveled down to see the Giants play the Bucs and were 15 minutes away form the stadium and only 10 minutes from the airport. You park underneath the building, so the car stays cool and we were within 30 minutes from multiple golf courses.

Will stay here again next trip to Tampa!

The condo. was very clean.

  • 4 of 5

The listing description was accurate. It was clean. The owner was very conscientious that we were satisfied and taken care of. The location was great. It's an easy drive to the convention center. We ate at the nearby Whiskey Joes and the Bahama Breeze. The food was great. I would recommend it.
