About Tyler Sheff

Tyler and Jill are lovers of sun, surf and all things involving the ocean. It is our love of the sea that places us in the beautiful seaside community of Tarpon Springs, FL. We love visiting the Florida Keys as well as other tropical destinations. It was the love of tropical places inspired us to remodel our properties to match the relaxed tropical vibe usually only experience in remote tropical islands. We are friendly people who are easy to get along with and enjoy the company of others.

Tyler Sheff purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Tyler Sheff chose Tarpon Springs

We think you should stay here because making it feel "like home" is what we have poured our heart and soul in when setting up this property. We have stayed in hotels and other Short Term Rentals that feel "plastic" and unwelcoming. We spared no expense in making our place feel like a classy home for you to kick back and relax during your stay.

What makes this apartment unique

We are located minutes from the beach, Innisbrook resort and a short drive to the airport and all of the things to see an do.

Quiet place in a lovely walkable town.

  • 4 of 5

Everything went smoothly with check in and return of deposit. The location was perfect, close to major roads but we walked downtown. The Sponge Docks were great. Every meal was a treat. The apartment was quiet and well appointed.

Incredible Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

Home was great and very comfortable. Kitchen could use more things to mix, cook, bake, and store with but if you are not looking to create a meal this is absolutely a fantastic choice. No problems whatsoever during Spring Break no less!!!!!

Must try Queens Pizza and Mama’s Authentic Greek Restaurants

Immaculate getaway

  • 4 of 5

Loved this cute apartment! Great central location for beaches, sponge docks and old downtown!

Only downside was no dishwasher or sink stoppers! Owner says no stoppers because of past sink overflows, made it challenging to wash dishes. So we washed dishes is a large mixing bowl in the sink! The owner was easy to reach and very responsive to requests and questions

Niagara Falls, Ontario

Comfortable, convenient and cost effective.

  • 4 of 5

With friends and family in the area, this was very convenient to highway 19 to get where we were going. We watched the Olympics with great TV coverage, comfortable living room furniture and excellent wifi. Many stores and restaurants nearby. When we had a question on the first day our text was promptly answered and the situation resolved within an hour. Several good areas nearby to walk, like Craig Park, Anderson Park and Fred Howard Park.

Check in

  • 1 of 5

Check in was a nightmare. No check in instructions were sent as owner had stated. Tried to contact him at property had no luck. Thankfully his wife came and gave us the door code so we could get in after an hour wait outside.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, this guest does not have a smartphone or access to email, therefore, was unable to receive emails or texts from our check-in system containing the info they needed to check-in. We use an electronic system to make things faster and easier for our guests which has resulted in tons of positive feedback from all of our other guests. We are sorry that this guest had difficulty due to no email access and if we had known how unhappy there were, we would have taken steps to ensure their complete satisfaction. This is the first (and only) complaint we have had, hundreds of previous guests have praised us for the ease of check-in because of the speed and efficiency of the platforms and processes we have in place.
