Beautiful House and great incredibly accommodating home owner. Martha was a pleasure to deal with and was an endless source of help and advice both at the house and for our time in Tampa. Only regret is that we didn't stay longer.

Great location, Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Tampa on business and needed a place for our whole team to stay (10 people). This property worked out very well. The house is beautiful and well kept. Martha is very easy to work with and extremely helpful. We catered one night and invited our customer to the house for a meal. The house is perfectly setup for that type of entertaining. We will definitely be back here when we come back to Tampa!

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

We rented this beautiful Davis Island home for my wedding weekend. My entire immediately family stayed there and we used the property for all festivities leading up to my ceremony. It was an excellent space for my bridal party and myself to get ready in on the morning of my wedding. The home gave us a beautiful backdrop for some pre-festivity pictures. The check-in and check-out process was a breeze. Martha, the home owner, was very flexible and welcomed us in her home with open arms. She even let us use the condiments and items that were in the fridge and around the house. It came stocked with clean towels and sheets for everyone. The only downfall was that the air conditioner in the upstairs of the Guest House was broken for a majority of our stay. This gave us one less King size bedroom and full bathroom to utilize. It was 80 degrees a majority of the weekend we stayed at the property and with no air conditioner, the space was not at all comfortable. Martha made an attempt to fix it, but the quick fix only lasted a couple of hours. Other than that, the space and all of its amenities were wonderful and the house was located in a perfect central part of Tampa.

Beautiful, clean, well kept home on an adorable island located minutes from Downtown, Channelside, The St Pete Time Forum, restaurants, shops and the cruise port. We have children and felt very safe.

This is an ideal home to chose for a family vacation! We will definitely be back!
