Relax in our beautiful villa right on the waterfront but in just over an hour be in Disney enjoying the rides! We are on a deep water canal with direct access to Tampa Bay,so you can dock your own boat/yacht if you wish. Or you can paddle up and down the canals in the kayaks we include with the rental! The view is great and from the boat dock you can see St Petersburg across the bay. Dolphins and manatees swim past the bottom of the garden, and Pelicans, Herons and Ibis along with flying fish all add to the daily entertainment!
Just sit and soak up the sun on the south facing patio and take a dip in the pool to cool off! Or sit in the hot-tub with a glass of wine and wave as the boats go by!
Cook a barbecue and watch the sunset using our in-table barbecues. Join the neighbours and fish off the dock and cook your own catch!
The villa has 2 master suites with 6 ft beds and ensuite walk-in showers. Then there are 2 more spacious bedrooms with large twin beds and their own shower rooms too. (8 persons in total) All showers are rain showers with body jets - very relaxing after your hard day in the sun!
There is a 65" curved 4K Smart TV if you wish to watch sport or take in a film, and there are also HD Smart TV's in all bedrooms. Also high speed internet access
The kitchen has a double oven, induction hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge/freezer plus a drinks fridge.

Our villa is in a residential area - there is a restaurant and tiki bar just down the road on the harbour with lovely views and good food. There are several local bars with sports screens or one with 'beer tasting' which makes a change!
In Tampa there are international restaurants and Jacksons on the harbour which does a lovely Sunday Brunch.
Ybor city has shops showing how cigars are made and Columbian restaurants and flamenco.
