very accommodating owner , great location and clean property

  • 4 of 5

We loved having 2 kayaks on site to use any time we wanted up and down the canal (don't forget bug spray!!). The property is right on the canal as the pictures show. It is also very accessible to restaurants and to the expressway. Very nice screened patio. There is also a ping pong table on site to enjoy a match or two. We could have used more tableware and definitely more towel racks in the bathroom. Overall very relaxing stay! Thank you, Herman!!!

Very nice place at a very affordable rate.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the stay. The place was as described and clean and neat. Many extras included to enjoy the dock out back. Rate was very affordable and Herman was excellent to work with. We would definitely stay with him again. Convenient area also, close to food and some shopping.

water front house

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home. It was very clean. Kayaking in the canal was a lot fun! It was great to sit on the dock and catch fish. Imagine our surprise that the best bait was left over chicken!! Herman was very attentive and caring; It was peaceful and enjoyable. Having a grill there was great for entertaining. another bonus was the washer and dryer so I didn't have to take any dirty clothes home! My husband liked the icemaker for his cocktails. Herman had said it was a very safe neighborhood and it certainly seemed to be true. Our daughter only lived 5 minutes away so that was handy. We were there to go to Raymond James Stadium which was easily accessible; We went to Caladesi Island; Donwtown St Pete is a really cool place to go to--good restaurants and shops; It was easy to find also.

My girlfriend and I were so pleased with our stay! It's a beautiful home in a pleasant neighborhood! Loved the extras like the kayaks and ping-pong table. Herman is such a nice guy! Upon our arrival, he gave me a good run-down of what's local to the area and that was nice because we have never been in the area! I look forward to coming back to the area and staying here again! I will be a repeat customer for sure!

Comfortable Home Base to Experience the Tampa, St Petersburg and Clearwater Area

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly what we were expecting. A nice comfortable, clean two bedroom bungalow with a screened in porch, kayaks, a ping pong table and a terrific kitchen complete with ice plus crushed ice! Made making lunches and packing cold beverages for our daily adventures ideal. In the evenings the living room was comfortable for chilling and watching TV.

We were there to experience the area. From this location it was convenient to visit Busch Gardens, the MOSI, the Florida Aquarium, the Amalie Arena, the Victory WWII vessel, YBOR district, the Dali, the Lowry Zoo, the Clearwater Aquarium (the only disappointment) and Clearwater Beach. The kids never tired of crossing the bridges!

Thank you Herman for contributing to a terrific vacation.
