Recent Florida Central West reviews

  • A little piece of heaven!

    "What a gem! The cottage was the perfect respite. Quiet, peaceful, so wonderfully decorated and appointed. And the bed was AMAZING! I slept like a baby! Pat was a good communicator from my first contact and she and Bob were the perfect hosts. The cottage had everything you might need, including a bottle of wine (and fresh fruit and other goodies) upon arrival. Had a great time exploring Tarpon Springs and the surrounding communities. Would highly recommend!"

  • Family Reunion in Paradise!!

    "Just returned home from a wonderful and relaxing trip to Pine Island! We have family in the Brooksville area and this made for a lovely family reunion. I had not been to Pine Island since I was a teenager in the '80s and was excited to return. The house was absolutely spot on with the pictures and descriptions and had every amenity needed for a wonderful beach get away. The beach is just a short walk as is Willie's Tropical Breeze Café. The wild life around the island is amazing to watch. We were beyond satisfied with " A Place in the Sun" and are excited to return in the near future."

  • Idyllic Vacation Retreat

    "As the other reviews have covered this bayside house is exactly as depicted in the photos. The house was spotless and well appointed with everything one would need to enjoy their time here. Although too cold for swimming the pool was clean and crystal clear. My one recommendation would be to replace some of the outdoor furniture which is suffering from the harsh Florida seaside climate. As you can see from my rating this did not pose a significant problem for us or detract from our stay. As others have noted fishing is quite good right off the home's dock. I had the best luck when fishing during the incoming tides beginning about 3 hours before high tide. There are numerous nearby locations that sell both live and frozen bait shrimp. Among the countless baitfish and garbage fish I caught I also caught Black Drum, Spanish Mackerel, Sheephead, Silver Trout and Catfish. I don't know what the law states for fishing from a private dock in FL but I had a fishing licence anyway because I was also fishing with friends off their boat. Although I didn't keep anything I caught at the house (had pounds of Grouper from the boat) I did feed some of my bait to a grateful Egret and some of my catch to a Great Blue Heron which magically appear anytime a fish breaks the surface of the water. If you are staying in the area and have found this listing STOP YOUR SEARCH. You won't find a better place to enjoy a vacation or a visit for any reason."

  • Very Nice Condo

    "We recently stayed at Oceanside and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo is spacious, clean and has amazing views. The balcony is really large and has high end outdoor furniture on it. I cant think of anything that was missing. The pool area is nice and the hot tub is actually hot...:D."

Brandon Travel Tips

Brandon Vacation Rentals Near Tampa

Brandon, Florida sits a short ten miles from the bustling city of Tampa in West Florida. Brandon offers small-community suburban living with easy access to big-city life. With the myriad of beaches and attractions in the Brandon area, vacationing is ideal for people of all ages. No matter what your interests, a Brandon beach home stay is ideal for getting some rest and relaxation mixed in with a lot of fun. The Brandon vacation rentals that are available allow you to bring the comforts of home to your vacation, such as a private home with plenty of amenities.

Brandon Beach Homes Make Vacationing Fun

Renting one of the Brandon beach homes for your vacation allows you to mingle home-style living with your beach vacation. Renting a private home is not the same hassle as having to cram your entire family into one small hotel room. Where else can you run in from the beach, throw together a lunch in a fully-equipped kitchen then back out to enjoy the Florida sunshine? Brandon vacation rentals allow you to mix with the locals while retaining your private times for your family. The cost savings can help you stay within your vacation budget, as well. Cut down on eating out or running to the laundry mat to clean your clothes; many of the available vacation rental properties have washers, dryers and fully stocked kitchens.

Activities are Steps Away From Brandon Beach Homes

Beach activities are not the only entertainment Brandon has to offer to vacationers enjoying the destination. Brandon is also home to Westfield Shoppingtown, which offers over 900,000 square feet of shopping. If you're vacationing in Brandon in April, the Brandon Balloon Classic is just steps away from your vacation rental. You may see more than 50 hot air balloons from all over the country at the two-day annual event. A trip to Disney in Orlando is a 90-mile drive from Brandon while Busch Gardens is about ten miles in nearby Tampa. Revel in the beach or explore the town. The convenient locations of Brandon vacation rentals give you options.
