average rating of 5.0 based on 15 reviews

Great place to stay. Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful, just what we needed to escape the Michigan cold and have a fun family Christmas celebration. The home had everything we needed and the views are great! Loved having access to kayaks and the paddleboard. The views are great and saw a lot of different birds and we even saw a manatee! Close to everything, my husband and kids were picked up right at the dock for their fishing charter.

We made a last minute decision to flee Jacksonville during Hurricane Matthew and fortunately landed upon this property! The home was beautiful, spacious, and very comfortable for the three of us. The homeowner was very easy to work with and made sure that we had everything we needed in her waterfront retreat.

The house was very well equipped and clean. The interior was furnished very nicely and the outdoor porch overlooking the water was beautiful. The house even had fishing poles and kayaks available for guest use!

I would highly recommend this property.

FANTASTIC place to stay - steps from the Water!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visit to this lovely home in Tampa. Upon arrival it was everything that we expected it to be. We were so pleased with our decision to stay here, the home is the last unit on the end of the road with a lot of privacy, and you do not have to worry about anyone looking in your windows. Feels very secure and comfortable.

My wife and I loved the de ’core and privacy of the unit, clean with bright colors. The master shower was fantastic with plenty of room with a nice shower head, the beds were very comfortable and clean and each room had a TV, we are not big TV watchers but the large screen TVS were very nice. It was a spacious and comfortable home.

The back deck was private with a great view of the water and at night when the lights came out it would look like another little village far away! Every morning I would have a cup of coffee on the deck and watch the wild animals as they frolicked around, we were treated one of the mornings to a manatee swimming in the water and around the boat dock. The place was very clean and even had extra chairs, an umbrella and table for us to sit at down by the water. You can fish right out the door and they even have a fish cleaning table! (Pretty awesome).

It’s easy to get around from this location, we visited several beaches in the area and it was a great hub to travel from. This place is close to the market and anything else you may need.

The kitchen was stocked with all the necessary dishes and utensils, coffee pot and toaster, all we had to buy was our food for the week. We have rented many places and found that this place had the same amenities as all the other rentals we have rented. It offers everything a person could possibly need and want, Includes a washer/dryer in the garage which is excellent

The water activates that are offered are great. You can use a canoe or kayak right off out the back door; we would take our flash light at night and explore around the shores edge a dock for night time exploration of different water life.

The owners were fantastic to deal with and a pleasure to meet; they went out of their way to make us feel welcome! Thank you Tami and Stacey. (Wonderful hosts)

We would love to stay here again when we head back to Tampa and would highly recommend and encourage others to do so. We are calling this place a little pieces of heaven. Enjoy!!!!

Waterfront Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Tami's house. Waking up to the waterfront view and relaxing to the same view every evening couldn't be beat. The house itself was very clean and had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and with two kids I really appreciated the full size washer/dryer. Tami was very easy to work with. Our kids are small so we couldn't enjoy a lot of the water activities, but did like to take the paddleboat out for a spin. This is a great value!

We're Back!!!

  • 5 of 5

Well, like I said in my last review -- we're back!!! We absolutely LOVE this place. We now gear all our trips to Tampa on the availability of this home. We no longer go to my daughter's home - she and her husband come here and bring their dog (Averie) who loves to swim and run around the huge yard. As for the humans, there is so much to do - kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, bird watching, watching the manatees and dolphins OR just sitting on the deck and enjoying life. The location is perfect - close to everything but you feel like you're in another world away from everything. I promise you won't be disappointed if you stay here!

Great Place to Stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd trip here since March!! We love this place!! Tami & Stacey are wonderful. They make you feel like family. The home has so much to offer. It is beautifully furnished and the setting is so peaceful. There is so much to do right here -- fishing, kayaking, paddle boating, bird watching, and looking for the manatees that come right to the shore. Restaurants and shopping are a short drive away. Instead of going to my daughter's house to visit, they prefer to come visit us here. All I can say is you won't be disappointed staying here -- and we WILL be back!!!!
