Spectacular waterfront views of Tampa Bay by the pool and hot tub

VRBO Bear stayed here

Mar 9, 2010

This beautiful home was located in a quiet, gated community in Apollo Beach. I entered this “tropical paradise” through the main front walkway decked out in green palm trees and flowers, under a massive archway, and through glass double doors. Upon arrival, I was greeted by the owner, who was very pleasant and professional. The owner gave me a tour of the home and explained all the features. Plus, the owner provided a concierge service for an effortless vacation stay. Services included having the kitchen stocked with groceries, restaurant recommendations and ticket reservations. Wireless internet and long-distance service were included at no extra charge. Like staying in a model home, this home was immaculate and exceptionally decorated. Designer touches all throughout the home made it especially outstanding. The most incredible feature of this home was its location directly on Tampa Bay. There were amazing views of the bay from the master bedroom balcony and the family room opening to the back of the house. The family room had floor-to-ceiling windows to enjoy the view from this spectacular location! The large back patio area had cushioned lounge chairs and seating, overlooking a spectacular drop-off pool into the ocean view. One night, I soaked in the hot tub after a busy day at Busch Gardens while gazing at the ocean just a few feet away and the stars overhead. The master bedroom upstairs was very spacious, with a walk-in closet and 5-piece bath. The king-sized bed had a soft, extra deep pillow top mattress that just enveloped this bear’s body. There was a huge, over-sized shower in the bathroom, with a large double sink area to get ready in the morning. I woke up each morning to view the ocean from the private balcony and watch the ships and birds fly over the water. I even saw a Manatee glide slowly past the docks. The kitchen was open and spacious, with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. A center island contained the gas range and all the small appliances I needed during my stay. There was also a double-oven in the wall and an outside grill off the back patio. There was seating for 10 in the dining room, with a smaller table in the kitchen nook and three tall stool seats to eat at the counter by the sink. In this ideal kitchen, everything but the food is provided to enjoy all the meals you care to cook. This home will comfortably accommodate multiple members from the bear clan with plenty of privacy. The queen bedroom downstairs had a bath with a shower, in addition to the master bedroom upstairs. Other guests can choose from three additional bedrooms upstairs, which share another bathroom with shower and tub. Besides the master bedroom, my favorite room upstairs was the den with the pull-out sleeper couch. It was very large and comfortable, with an extra large TV! All the bedrooms have their own TV’s, to wind down with a favorite show before going to bed. This vacation home had all the comforts of home that made my stay so enjoyable. The towels for the bath and pool were the plushest, thickest towels this fur has ever felt! There were hooks behind every bedroom door, and a convenient towel rack on the back patio after exiting the pool. There were games and books to occupy leisure time, and thick cushions for the back deck seating area. I truly felt at home in this exceptional vacation rental and wish it was my own home. I recommend this home to anyone and everyone – you will love this house and truly enjoy your stay! The VRBO Bear

Vacation Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place for a get-away whether with family or friends. This place has it all! There is nothing better than to get up in the morning, fix a cup of coffee and head out on the pier to watch the fish jump, the manatees or a pod of dolphins swim by and perhaps see a cruise ship leaving port and heading out to sea...and this can all be happening before breakfast!

Just 20 minutes from downtown Tampa, an hour from Orlando and less than 30 minutes to terrific outlet shopping...What a terrific location.

The house is beautiful with every convenience a person could ask for. Can you tell we had the best time and can't wait to return???

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house with beautiful interior and breathtaking views across the bay.

The location is excellent with fast access to local attractions including Busch Gardens,shopping and the beach even Orlando is within comfortable commuting distance. The highlight though was the very friendly, helpful warm welcome and advice we received throughout our stay. Jennifer, Lexi and family thank you so very much for a wonderful experience. I hope other visitors are fortunate enough to meet your Dad Jennifer and hear some of his wonderful stories. Thank you from Ashley, Mary and the Goldblatt children.

We cannot imagine a more perfect home-away-from-home than the lovely house in Apollo Beach. The photos on the website were beautiful, but both the home and surroundings were even more impressive in person. Jennifer made the entire rental process trouble free and was there to greet us upon our arrival with a tour of the property and tips on local restaurants and sites to see. She was so hospitable, we felt completely at home and at ease. We are already looking forward to another spring break there next year.
