About Fawna Branigan

I'm a construction manager with an Engineering firm so I travel quite a bit to different projects around the world. This place is one of three places I like to call home. It is always a great place to unwind and just get away from it all.

Fawna Branigan purchased this house in 2015

Location is Key! Spectacular View! Hosts are wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a last minute place for extended family to stay in the Apollo Beach area. This home is perfect. The view is spectacular! The home is decorated lovely. There is a difference between a house for rent and a home for rent. This is a home. It has everything one needs to be comfortable. Fawna and Jason are attentive hosts. They made everything easier for us. This home is spacious. The bedding was comfortable. We all slept well. The area is peaceful and safe. This home is centrally located. This is close to everything one needs to vacation in the Tampa Bay area. It is 30 minutes to Busch Gardens/Adventure Island. It's 30 minutes to the Tampa Riverwalk. It's 40-45 minutes from the Tampa Airport, 45-50 minutes to some of the best beaches in the area (Siesta Key, Anna Maria Island and many more fabulous beaches). You can travel North to Tampa/Brandon area and South to the Bradenton/Sarasota areas. Travel East to Orlando - about 1 1/2 hours. Travel West to Clearwater/Clearwater Beach about 50-60 minutes. If we have the need again, this is the home we will choose to rent. Pricing is on point.

Thank you for hosting our family!

This mini vacation was just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We were there for a dance convention (our kids) but my husband and I enjoyed the pool and the beautiful view! We went fishing off the dock in the afternoon. Great place to stay! Owner was sweet and helpful. Would highly recommend this place

Nice spot in a quiet neighborhood with an awesome pool and fantastic view!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for my and my sisters family. The pool is awesome complete with space to sit outside and enjoy the view of the pool or the dock and inlet area. Beds were comfortable and the space had all of the necessary amenities and more! We will certainly stay again.

Spacious home with a beautiful view.

  • 4 of 5

The home is very spacious, clean, newly tiled throughout with a comfortable pool and relaxing view of the tranquil canal. Saw a dolphin, too! While the tile is new and the home clean, we found a number of things old or in disrepair. For example, the faucet on the kitchen sink is completely loose and, as a result, difficult to use. The screened-in pool is good and large, but there are several holes and one panel is separated from the frame. As a result, I had to scoop dead flies out of the pool before each swim. Maybe the home is paused amid a major rehab. A final note for older folks, there are no railings on the steep stairs going into the front or rear of the home. Watch your balance!

Relaxing family gathering place

  • 4 of 5

The Apollo Beach home was a great gathering spot for my husband and I, along with our daughter, husband, and four grandsons. The house is nicely furnished and equipped, and is laid out in a way that provides for both privacy and togetherness, as desired. Everyone loved the pool, and the big boys enjoyed fishing off the dock as well. We didn't use the kayaks because we weren't sure how to safely get them into the water and access them from the dock, since there was no ladder. We appreciated the access to WiFi and cable TV options. Thank you for providing this nice get-away!
