The house is very spacious and could easily accommodate our group. The outdoor space is beautiful with stunning views of the bay in the morning and evening. We were easily able to stay in for dinner one night and cook on the grill. Alex was a wonderful host who was attentive and responsive leading up to the trip and while we were staying there. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone traveling with family or friends to the Tampa/St. Petersburg area!

They had 2 of their finest boats shipped from Oregon to Florida where they were put up on the boat lifts at the mansion.

The Mansion is a Mansion ,17 of us spent a week there and all had our own space but able to be all together as Family for a Wonderful vacation. It is very well kept lots of extra's couldn't ask for more. The Games room was used nightly for pool games and Shuffelboard and morning workouts in the weight room. In the evening we would sit by the pool and watch the dolphins swim by ,the Beautiful sunsets were amazing. We rented a boat and boated downtown to the wharf for lunch ,went to a beach with lovely white sand and lots of sea shells just boating around the inlet was so relaxing, I would recommend this property for all ages we were a family of 17 from 1 to 65 and all of us loved being there It was a" DREAM COME TRUE "a perfect place to spend a Family or Friend Vacation!!!!

I will say that everything from the first contact of booking until the deposit was returned was a good experience. Alex was available to provide answers to local questions, helped guide us to a better stay and was just in general a good host. We had 18 people and the house was perfect for a large group. We swam, we ate, we kayaked, we fished. Alex also gave us info on where to eat when we wanted to go out, a caterer when we didn't want to cook anymore, and jetski rental when we wanted to go play. The wine celler was a huge hit and the gym/game room/ and upstairs apartment area was a big hit for the kiddos. Great host, great house, great stay.
