Home is 15 min. north of Tampa International Airport. Beaches, parks, malls, an abundance of golf courses are all nearby. Historic Tarpon Springs, famous for its sponge docks, is 30 minutes away, as well as the city of Tampa, home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the University of South Florida and well-respected hospitals. Brooker Creek Park and a county library are only 5 minutes away.
A canoe is available for your use but you are welcome to bring your own boat and use our boat slip.
I grew up in Tampa but my father built this lake place right next door to his best friend who had recently purchased the house next door. We would come out and spend the entire summer here. We still love it and are happy to be able to share it with others. The city of Tampa is only 30 minutes away!
Dada Glaser purchased this house in 1965
The lake view is simply gorgeous and relaxing. It is an ideal lake for swimming, fishing, boating and skiing. It is on a 443 acre spring-fed lake. The kitchen has been recently renovated with all new appliances and granite counters. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with shower and a view of the lake. The middle bedroom has a full bed and the 3rd bedroom has 2 twin beds. The second two bedrooms share a hall bath with a tub + shower. The washer and dryer are located in a large outside utility room.
At this lakefront home you can feel like you are out in the country yet be close enough to take advantage of all that the Tampa Bay area has to offer. The Veterans Expressway, 15 minutes away, can take you south to Tampa or north along the coast towards central Florida. Bike trails, state parks, beautiful cities such as St. Petersburg and Clearwater are all an easy drive away. You can never get bored but you can be as relaxed as you want to be on this gorgeous lake
I was so impressed with this house, it was very quaint and comfortable. The lake was literally in the backyard and the view was just beautiful. We were travelling with our children and they had a great time on the tire swing (with our supervision of course). We also made use of the canoe and life vests available. If we come back to Odessa (Tampa) again we will stay here!
We had a great time and really enjoyed this spacious house and it's close proximity to everything worth seeing in the greater Tampa area! We immediately felt right at home and I was happy to be able to grill with their new grill every night! Most of all, I enjoyed it being on the lake and being able to go out on the canoe they provided. So much so, that on our last day, when the rest of our group went to Clearwater Beach, I stayed behind for one last tour of the lake on the canoe. This place is truly a hidden gem!
My family had a great time at this Tampa home. The owner was very friendly and nice to work with. My husband and sons had fun fishing on lake and caught some nice size fish. The location was great and easy to find our way around. We went to Tampa Rays game and visited the Hard Rock Casino. Busch Gardens was the reason we picked this area and were so glad we did. We would also reccommend Danny's All American Diner to eat. I saw it on Diners Drive-Ins and Dives and it had delicious food. So hope you can tell our stay in Tampa created very fond memories for our family. This home was perfect for our family of seven. We had plenty of room and lots of extras were there for us. If you are looking for a fun family place this is it!

The Lake Keystone area is about 25 minutes north of Tampa and about 15 minutes north of Tampa International Airport. You will feel like you are out in the country yet many malls, Busch Gardens, beaches, Tampa Aquarium and the Straz Center and Tampa Museum of Art are only 25 minutes away. Bike trails, hiking trails and state parks are all close by. We are in the middle of everything, yet it is a peaceful oasis.
