About Kathy Lane

Working for The Weather Channel, I knew that great weather was #1 on a vacation -- and Tampa offered that plus so much more! We are always so busy when there...and then there are some days that are just perfectly lazy ones at the beach (The Don CeSar Resort is a beautiful place to spend the day). We've been to Busch Gardens several times and they always have a different theme so it is a new experience with each visit. The performances are actually great!

Kathy Lane purchased this condo in 2006

Why Kathy Lane chose Spinnaker Cove

The condo is minutes away from the airport but quiet....with a distant view of the waters of Old Tampa Bay. It is a good central departure location, and you can be at the beautiful Gulf Coast beaches in twenty five minutes at the most. Close by, some of the attractions include Busch Gardens, Ybor City, Lowry Zoo, Honeymoon Island state park and Raymond James Stadium, Steinbrenner Field. Heading east, Orlando's DisneyWorld, EPCOT, MGM, SeaWorld and Lake Buena Vista can be reached in little over an hour, so you definitely get to see a lot of Florida in a short time.

What makes this condo unique

There is an elevated walkway over the conservation is good for a nice walk or jog where you can finish up back at the pool/clubhouse/fitness center. Close to malls, restaurants, Publix shopping and many different restaurants. Our favorite is Columbia in Ybor City!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This condo looks professionally furnished, and is very nice and clean, so convenient to the airport and shopping, not far to Orlando, St. Petersburg or even Sarasota. I enjoyed my stay immensely, and late October is a lovely time to visit Florida.

This was truly our "home away from home" while my husband had back surgery! Loved it & the location!

  • 5 of 5

We rented for a week (well, Friday through Saturday), and could not have been more pleased! My husband & I shared one bedroom, and my mother-in-law and our 6-year-old-granddaughter shared the other - it was perfect! The owner, Kathy, was so personable and so accommodating. She responded immediately to my emails and/or occasional phone call. If we ever have reason to come back to Tampa, we will stay here again!

Not as clean as we would have expected.

Water pressure poor in shower.

Should have had a set of utensils rather then a mix of knives, spoons and forks.

Bed mattress not comfortable.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear of your disappointment, and are surprised. In twelve years, we have never had a less-than-excellent review so this is confusing to us. For example, we did "seasonal" cleaning ourselves and then engaged Sears Carpet Cleaning for a quarterly service on the 3 year old carpet just 2 days before your arrival. We also had our professional cleaning service come in the day prior to your arrival. Our plumber advises the shower pressure is adequate, considering Tampa's high mineral content in water. Mattresses were expensive and people having back surgery at the Spinal Center have judged them comfortable in the past. Utensils were usable --but we did just purchase a new perfectly "matched" set.

Great Location with all amenities

  • 4 of 5

The location is perfect--close to everything, yet quiet area. Very close to the airport and downtown, but without the noise. The condo if very well equipped including some cooking spices you might need, but don't need to use a lot of. There are clear instructions throughout the home. Beds and furniture were very comfortable.

When we did have questions, Kathy was very responsive. There is a nice boardwalk that is accessible from the back of the development. That makes for a nice morning or evening stroll. People were friendly.

My only issue is with the garbage collection. Although pickup is every day, but 2 days per week, the first time they came they did not take what was IN the box. The 2nd time, they took the garbage, but left the recyclables. It would be nice to have a dumpster where we could simply remove the trash ourselves. (This is certainly beyond Kathy's control, but it is a little confusing.) This is the only reason for 4 out of 5 stars. I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you! I am glad you had a nice time while in Florida. Our valet trash pickup company does not recycle. However, there is a dumpster for recyclables on the premises -- I just found out you have to call in advance so the security guard can unlock the gate. (Guess they do that as a control measure so it never gets to overflowing!)

5 Stars

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at the property for 30 days so that my daughter could train and condition at D1 Tampa for college soccer in the Fall. If you have ever vacationed at one of the Westgate properties in Orlando, Florida then you know that this property is state of the art. It was very well equipped, spacious enough for 4 or more, and conventienly located. We have definitely made it a home away from home.

Thanks Kathy!
