About Julia Morris (813-468-5425) Alex Farmer renttampa at

I live right next door and have loved the convenience of the location, the neighbors but especially the beautiful view of the creek for the last 14 years. I bought and renovated this house so that my friends and family can visit and enjoy all that Tampa has to offer.

Why Julia Morris (813-468-5425) Alex Farmer renttampa at chose Northwest Tampa

The house is fresh and cheerful. The location is convenient to just about everything and is a great jumping off point for exploring west central Florida. But the best part is the liveliness of nature on the creek. Fish, birdwatch, sun, read a book, relax.

What makes this house unique

Location. Its hard to believe you are so close to everything when the view is so unspoiled out the back.

My company sent me to Tampa for a week. I did not want to stay ata hotel so I thought I would try a rental home. It was a great idea and I will do it again. The owners live next door to the home and it is more than one could ask for. Not to mention a great value.
