About Carina Machin

We are a local family living in Tampa for 3 generations and hope you enjoy our weekend getaway home.

Carina Machin purchased this cabin in 1994

Why Carina Machin chose Citrus Park Community

Our home offers all the conveniences of the Tampa Bay area yet the charms of a larger tract of land and the feel of the country. The boathouse and dock offer relaxing days and nights with fishing and enjoying the beautiful natural surroundings!

What makes this cabin unique

Enjoy the sunset sitting on the front porch, having a fire in the fire pit on a cool evening, cooking out on the deck, or on the dock, kayaking, fishing, or walking on the property.

Charming log cabin.

  • 5 of 5

Very nicely decorated older log cabin with lots of country charm. Private and secluded yet many stores within a couple of miles. Handy to the coast or Tampa. Really nice golf courses within 2 to 5 miles. Lots of wild life besides the cows that reside on the property. Many different birds, raccoons, possum, and the turtles in the lake. None that caused any problems. Did not see any snakes or alligators (except on the golf course). Great place to get away from it all and relax!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

perfect location for people who just want to relax and get away from it all. No other homes in the area.

The cabin is decorated so uniquely, and cozy. If you like to fish, the boathouse and the dock are perfect

for catching bass,bluegill,and crappie. Largest bass I caught was 9 lbs. The huge old oak trees are so much like

Florida, with all the moss hanging down. The weather was fantastic-75-80. We enjoyed every minute!

I would highly recommend this truly relaxing getaway! The owner, Carina, was so gracious.
