About the property

Tennis Courts 2 minute walk, Crystal River Manatees 1 hour away.

Remodeled in 2012, updated kitchen, bathrooms, fresh paint, new appliances and a filtered water system. The yard is completely fenced in and there is a small pet door from the house, through the screened cage to the yard. House has high speed internet, roku, vudu, amazon prime, hulu and netflix media services available.

Uber (taxi) will run you ~22$ with no traffic to get to the house from the airport.

The home is a classic split plan L shape with the master bedroom with en suite bathroom on one side, the common areas in the center and the 2 guest bedrooms plus bathroom which has access to the home and pool on the other side.

The master has a 42'' flat screen TV. The common area has a 55'' flat screen TV which you can watch while making dinner.

Kitchen has everything you need to cook/bake. Both bathrooms have hair dryers, toiletries, etc.

*4 Tennis rackets at the house available for your use.

*set of golf clubs

*blow up kayak

*folding beach chairs/umbrellas/towels available etc.

Quiet neighborhood you can hear a pin drop at night - lots of restaurants within 3 miles of the house and Citrus Park Mall less than 1.5 miles away. Very private backyard.

Our home is setup so that when we travel from our other home we take no luggage and simply walk in. This home doesn't have 'rental furniture', 'a sparse kitchen', or 'crappy bedding/beds'. I can walk in from the grocery store and make thanksgiving dinner for 20+ and enjoy the a fantastic night of sleep. Rest assured when you book our home we're immediately available for any issues. We visit the home frequently so it's kept in amazing shape.

*@PET OWNERS* We have two toy poodles, and we understand traveling with pets, however after renting our home we realize not everyone travels the same as we do. If your pet excessively barks or is not fully potty trained with a dog door, this is not the house for you. The carpets will be checked with black lights after each stay. We have to keep our home in excellent shape for everyone's enjoyment. If urine is found on the area rugs they will be cleaned/replaced if need be at your expense, if it's found on the lanai there will also be an extra cleaning charge. You must be at the house every night if you have a pet in the home. I understand there are many excellent pet travelers out there and we are absolutely accommodating.

About Cherish

We split our time between living in Vail, CO and Tampa.

Cherish purchased this house in 2012

Why Cherish chose Fawn Ridge

Close to everything, 20+ restaurants within 3 miles, private enough to sun bathe naked near the pool, golf courses around the corner, tennis courts nearby. Easy access to essentials and the airport.

What makes this house unique

Private fenced in back yard and fantastic outdoor furniture. We tried to make the lanai almost better than the inside of the house. We eat outside all winter long and sleep on the patio after we swim. We love the wildlife as well, turtles come into the driveway and the random armadillo can be seen at night, or day.... however typically as road kill. :)

Tampa family vacation

  • 4 of 5

House was very clean and decorated nicely. There was plenty of room for our adult family of six to spread out. The only thing disappointing was the weather was cool and cloudy so the solar heater did not heat the water in the pool very warm. If you are looking for a nice place to vacation, I would recommend this home!

Very Nice place!

  • 5 of 5

Great House!! Great Location!! Great Customer Service!! Me and my husband stayed at this house for the week of Thanksgiving and it was a very comfortable stay. The location was perfect. There was a mall 3mins from the house. Publix 5mins and any restaurant you can think of within 10mins from the house. I would stay there again for sure. Thanks Cherish and Gert for a great stay!!

Quiet, well appointed home away from home

Perfect for those looking for a place in the Tampa area that feels less like your in tourist mode. The property is dog friendly. The owners are very responsive too.

The pictures of the house was exactly what we got, no surprises. Very clean the beds were so comfortable! If we forgot anything the house already had it. Great house, went with friends to celebrate my b-day. Already planning a trip with family and kids for Spring/Summer using this same house. Cherish was always quick to answers emails or texts.

There is an amazing massage place on Sheldon about 1.2 miles from the house called Spring Massage. I've traveled all over the world and haven't had a better massage than the women there give. Highly recommended for I believe 60$ an hour. Worth every penny.
