Apollo Beach is the sleepy boating town of Tampa Bay. The pricing of this home is less then Hotels and we do not charge for extra people. I live in Apollo Beach it is nice to get out of the hustle and bustle and yet drive in any direction and accomplish all site seeing as a guest chooses. This home is 25 minutes or less from Tampa where many conventions take place. Let's not forget close to the Tampa Bay Stadium and Our Famous Baseball Stadium!

I always get the comments from travelers that this is like home. The home is larger than the pictures show. My Guest do return I have a 50% return visit.

The Miller family

  • 5 of 5

We just recently rented this lovely villa.

I did read the first review on this, looked at the pictures, read about the owner and had a feeling it was false. Once I opened the door I knew it was very clear that the review was completely false. The house was emmucalate. The kitchen microwave works perfectly, no missing cabinets and the other claims are too ridiculous to mention. This is a beautiful house and the owners were more than accommodating. They couldn't have been nicer people. I will definitely be back and recommend this rental perfect home away from home, Thanks Michelle and Ron Miller

Owner's Response: Ronald and Michelle, I would rent to the family many times over. They left my home in perfect condition . I would like to give them a strong review for their future stay definitely a 5 star. No damage refunded their deposit in full and going forward would always waive a deposit from this family Look forward to them coming back Elaine Owner

An impressive property and good location between Tampa and St. Peterburg

  • 5 of 5

The property was very spacious with a well thought out living area and seperated bedrooms. All three of the bathrooms are a larger than the normal size with lots of room. The master bath/ shower/cloths wash area are very spacious, as is the stand alone shower and deep tub. The kitchen was exceptionally well equiped, and the ice maker in the fridge was a pleasant surprise. The out side screened in deck with barbenque and and bikes we used extensively.

The neighbourhood is friendly as are the local merchants and two very good restarants are present within walking distance. The beach itself is modest but gracious and safe with warmer than normal waters. The Manatee preserve within biking distance was a pleasant surprise.

Elaine the owner accomidated our stay request much more quickly than others have in the past. Although we didn't have any requests over and above, I am positive she would have reacted and accomidated them quickly. Thanks for a very nice stay Elaine. If in the area we are sure to come back.

First of all the place was not clean! This is the biggest problem I had, when I was in the master bathroom I see a ladies makeup brush on the floor under the counter, then I see little black pellets that look like rat droppings, then later when taking a shower I find clumps of hair in the shower, guess that's why the light in the shower was not replaced so you would not see it was not clean, could not even see to shower.It was definitely not cleaned professionally. And the nice white towels you see in the pictures where nowhere to be found, we got old mismatch colored towels which in my thought is a no no in rental.

The place needs updating but to have a kitchen you would not even cook in is beyond needing updating to rent out. The front cabinet doors at the sink were missing, the stove looked like it would not even work, the refrigerator look dirty and rusty, the microwave above the sink would not even reheat coffee.

Then we did not even have basic essentials to start off, no trash bag in the kitchen to put trash in, detergent to run dishwasher and we were only there for less than 48 hours.

And there is no cable which my husband and boys were wanting to watch ESPN, who rents without cable.

I say these things as we have a beach rental and I know what is expected for a rental and this was far from it, they need a lot of improvement.

Owner's Response: I rented this home to this family. I had numerous conversations with them prior to arrival. I made it clear that I wanted them to call one hour in advance and when they arrived. I live 3 minutes away and if they were so unhappy why did they not call I would have been there and resolved all their issues. I have rented 5 homes for 14 years on Home away, Vacation Rentals, VRBO not one bad review. You can see from the pictures this home is very nice and not at all what claims are made. SEE MY COMMENTS: 1 There are 30 white towels and numerous burgundy sets that are not mismatched.There are 2 linen closets they just did not look 2 This unit was clean and inspected . 3 This unit has an annual contract for rodents and insects. ( no rats this is absurd) 4 There are essential cleaning items in the utility closet near the washer and dryer and under the kitchen sink ( they did not look) 5 The stove and refrigerator are 6 years old, dish washer 1 year old, and a new counter top microwave. 6. There is cable and wireless internet I have the same carrier since the home was built. I do not have ESPN as my renters do not come to sit inside and watch TV. 7. The shower light does work. ( not true) 8 The home has solid Cherry Cabinets in every bath and kitchen, and granite. If they have a rental in Hilton Head , Why did they not call. I am sure their renters call them in advance or when they arrive. I have travel agencies that refer me business year after year from the day I bought this unit. I feel the pictures speak for themselves. What surprises me why did they not call me when they arrived? I would have resolved their issues and if they still wanted to complain then I would refunded all their rent and asked them to vacate. But as I have said before not one call. Just a lot of false statements. This does not make sense. Sincerely Elaine Wise
