Very nice property. We definitely enjoyed our stay and would stay there again or recommend to others.
Property inside and out not clean at all. Gutter are running over. Lots of broken items. In major need of new paint. Property owner and manager are very nosy, they like to invade your privacy and I was referred to as being untrustworthy. Worst property I have ever rented off of vrbo site. Pictures are very old and don't show the uncleanliness.
This is simply retaliation because we requested some of the guests' security deposit for extra cleaning, due to guests bringing more pets than approved during reservation discussions. Guests were angry they were caught attempting to hide extra pets. When property manager went to welcome and make sure guests had everything they needed, guests repeatedly avoided her. After multiple attempts to arrange to meet guests, property manager stopped by the house and guests blocked entrance to the house and would not let in property manager, in effort to hide extra pets. This was the "invasion of privacy". When owner called to ask guests about extra pets - this was being "nosy". Other authentic and recent reviews say house is very clean and well cared for. House has been painted inside and out in the last year. Furniture and other amenities are regularly replaced and new photos are taken as items change. Following is the e-mail from the guests after they were caught with extra pets: "I do apologize about the second dog. That was a huge mistake on my part, and I do apologize deeply for not relaying that info. My phone number is ---------- if you need to contact me. We've been gone a lot with sight seeing and things to keep the kids busy. Also we've been in the pool and may have missed you being at the door. My husband was only blocking the door to prevent the dogs from running out. And he was being leery of letting a stranger into the house. Please just call or text me to let me know when you plan another next visit."
Lovely villa in beautiful and convenient location
The villa is spacious, and very well equipped. There’s plenty of room across the property, with comfortable relaxing areas in the main lounge as well as the other rooms. Bedrooms were also spacious and the beds very comfortable. The villa is probably due a refresh as some of the areas are a little tired, but nevertheless all in good serviceable order. The pool area was lovely, nice and clean, large enough to have a proper swim, or just relax. There’s so much space around the pool and super views across the lake, lots of green planting and trees, often with local wildlife running around.
A few other reviewers have mentioned the aircraft overhead. Being so close to Tampa airport, of course there are quite a few planes landing or taking off, the direction seemed to switch every few days. The planes are quite loud, and at their peak every ten minutes or so. Everyone’s tolerance is different, but for me, it wouldn’t put me off returning, overall it’s a beautiful location, and so convenient to lovely Tampa, Busch Gardens and the beaches of Clearwater.
Hi Andrew - so glad you enjoyed our home and had a lovely relaxing visit. we bought it for exactly those reasons - quiet, pretty yet convenient to local amenities and spacious! as I mentioned recently, the plane issue should be temporary. The airport is expanding and some of the runways are closed re-routing planes for a bit. Glad to hear it wasn't bothersome for you and you'd visit us again in the future. Hope to have you back!
Well maintained house with a beautiful view
We had a great time in Marianne’s house. The house was well maintained, with all equipment on board with a beautiful lanai, pool and incredible lake view. Morning there were squirrels running around and birds were singing. Off and on there was some noise from airplanes. We were taking good care by our host Sonia, Thank you!
We recommend this house for families who love to enjoy their holiday in the Tampa area. The house is central to the beaches as well as Tampa Bay and Busch Gardens. We would love to return one day!
We enjoyed this lakeside home in a quiet neighborhood. Clean home with nice pool. My husband and I spent a week at this house which was located near my daughter's home. We look forward to returning with our granddaughter this fall. Great set up for a family.
Wonderful Stay and Retreat
My family and I enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. I had a business trip and wanted my family to have a wonderful time as I attended the session. It was indeed a treasure surrounded by a peaceful atmosphere. The photos don't tell the story of the true beauty of the home. Also, the house was stock with all the necessities for a kitchen. The owners and property manager are lovely, always offering assistance if needed. I would highly recommend and will return myself only for a more extended visit.
