What a great week! We had a great time enjoying the heated pool and hot tub in December. Very quiet location and the owners were great to work with. If we had a question, it was immediately answered. The home is on a canal which is fun for kayaking and fishing at high tide. It's also located on a cul-de-sac road, near the end with little traffic. The drive to the sponge docks and Howard Park were short and I biked to the park often. Thanks for a great stay!
The house is in a very quiet neighborhood and across the street from the gulf. We enjoyed having the canal in back of the house. A lot of birds and jumping fish. We enjoyed being about to sit out by the pool and spend time in the pool. The house was away from it all, but close to restaurants and grocery stores. Our only issue was the beds. We are firm bed owners and had a hard time getting comfortable on the soft mattresses. We will definitely stay here again.
This house is situated on a cul de sac. The neighbors are extremely quiet. It is minutes from excellent Greek restaurants and bakeries. Though we did not go into Tampa, it was just down the road. We chose the house for the amenities (pool, grill, etc) and it met all expectations. This house had everything we could have wanted, except a gas stove top (very particular about how I cook seafood).
It's on a canal,but the area at the dock needs dredging.
We found the facilities perfect, quiet and met all expectations.
A great place to stay!
Although home was in clean shape; there was some confusion as to the definition of canal front home. We had presumed the canal front home was boat friendly. A great deal of our decision to rent home was based on this idea. Five days prior to arrival we receive information regarding the canal not being dredged and therefore no boats. The owners did offer a full refund but with five days to try and arrange similar rental with vacancy plus arrange days off from work etc. We felt we had little choice but to continue with rental but as week progressed it was clear not being able to use our boat from house was an inconvenience we had not fully expected nor wanted.
My family and I spent a week here for our vacation at this beautiful home. Despite an issue that we had upon arriving, the owners Rhonda & Steve made sure that everything got figured out right away. They are amazing people. Thanks so much. I would definitely recommend this vacation rental property to anyone.
I would Recommend this house to any one wanting to get away and have a Great Time. The House has everything You need!!! The layout is perfect!! Just as advertised! we spent 7 nights and enjoyed them all!!
