"Michiganders need sunshine. So sunshine is what we seek.
My extensive search began as the search always starts; by reading reviews. The Sea Isle Villas were a perfect fit with location, availability to suit our travel dates, AND fabulous reviews.
Ian! Everyone was right about Ian. A perfect gentleman with perfect response time; so important when planning, so comforting during travel dates.
When we unlocked the door using the keybox, we were all pleasantly relieved. The unit is beautiful, especially the renovated kitchen. The space was more than what two adventurous mature couples needed, but we welcomed the extra room and amenities.
The overall experience was favorable. The disappointment we experienced in the response, or rather the unresponsiveness of the "key holder", Mary. We never saw her. The only time I heard her voice was when I phoned...and got her voicemail.
She did not " meet" us, as was indicated in her email, she did not arrive to secure the unit(and our personal items) when a routine furnace maintainence appointment occurred during our rental period. She did not have the combination to the bike lock, although Ian had indicated in the Welcome Folder that she would, and responded to me via text that I should have read the folder more carefully. Four professional adults had already searched through the folder for the combination, and assuming the "keyholder" would have the information, inquired to receive the information - not a reprimand.
After other issues with a clogged dryer vent, a dusurbingly disgusting blanket and a filthy over-burdened vacuum cleaner bag( when was the carpet truly cleaned last?) I was more than frustrated with the unseen woman who was hired to represent the Owner's best interest. Sure hope Mary can step up her game.
I emailed Ian. He responded immediately! He then phoned the condo! Both my friend and myself were able to speak with him. Our visit was stellar. The incidental situations were bothersome. Ian was amazing-again.
We all agreed that we would stay again. The problems were not enough to sway us from a return visit to Sea Isle. Thanks, Ian!"

"Had a fantastic time staying here, the owners could not have been more welcoming and the condo is fully equipped with everything you need. I loved that all the beach equipment was provided much to my 4 year old's delight! The beach is straight across the road so it's easy to access and on your return it's lovely to use the condo's pool and hot tub. St John's Pass is a few minutes walk away with lovely shops, bars and restaurants so the location is excellent. We will be staying here again in the future."

"Six members of our family enjoyed Xmas week in this clean, comfortable house. The house is in a quiet neighborhood and the back lanai and pool area are very private with no house directly across the water canal. The kitchen is large & well equipped and we easily prepared meals together and took pleasure eating outside in the lanai. We wanted to be near Tampa and this house was perfect for trips in to Ibor City, Raymond James Stadium, Hyde Park and Howard Street restaurants, and the Lightening hockey arena. It was also a very easy drive to Caladesi Island State Park (voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the country) and Honeymoon Island Beach. There is a Publix supermarket as well as other convenience stores within a 5 min. drive. We enjoyed having the doors open to the lanai and hearing the birds when we awoke each morning. The canal is a no wake zone, so the boat traffic was very quiet. The owner was easy to reach and we would stay here again if we come back to the area. I will recommend this to others looking for a comfortable affordable home to rent in the Tampa area."
