About Cheri Bett

We are Ken and Cheri Bett. Ken is my high school sweetheart. Gilligan's Island House is my (Cheri's) childhood home. My parents were the original owners. Ken and I moved back to this neighborhood in 1995. We live on the next street over. You can see our location from Gilligan's Island House. Ken and I have been landlords for primary residence rentals since 2002. We own more than 10 homes. Many of our tenants stay with us for years, because we believe in treating people right and always doing the right thing. Ken is a licensed General Contractor and an Electrical Engineer. I was a middle school teacher before the birth of our children. I now manage our rentals and act as Project Manager for our company. Ken and I are looking forward to this adventure and meeting you. We hope Gilligan's Island House exceeds your expectations and makes your travel easier and relaxing.

Cheri Bett purchased this house in 1959

Why Cheri Bett chose Tampa

Ken and I are Tampa natives. This property has spectacular water views and access. Both of my parents loved to entertain family and friends. Ken and I believe that creating a relaxing vacation home for you, is an honor to their memory. We originally had intended to rent the home as a primary residence. But in November 2013, we were on vacation, lying in a hammock, and realized that it would be a privilege to create the same relaxing environment for the visitors of Tampa.

What makes this house unique

The view will have you when you enter the front door. The location is convenient to everywhere. We are also one of the only waterfront homes in the Bay area who will consider allowing your furry family members to accompany you on vacation. Gilligan's Island is located in a waterfront and golf community. Catch snook, redfish, mullet, and more right from the dock. On occasion you may see marine mammals - dolphins and manatees. Take the kayak or paddle board out and enjoy the lagoon and the nature that lives in our mangrove areas. Golf at Rocky Point Golf Course, then enjoy a beverage at the 19th watering hole. Local theme parks are 15 to 25 minutes away. So much to do, make sure you schedule enough time.

Great property, great neighborhood, and dolphin visits!

  • 5 of 5

I used this property for a work retreat with staff - it was perfect! We loved the pool, the views, and got to see dolphins one morning! The community was very quiet, and it was lovely to return to this property at the end of long days in planning sessions, doing interviews and presentations, and meeting with board members and funders. We would definitely return.

the basics - very clean house, great wifi (strong signal, multiple users), cute design, high quality furnishings, plenty of towels etc for everyone. kitchen had good selection of housewares for light cooking and food prep. LOVED the outdoor space, especially the day bed.

wish we had had more time for play - bikes looked to be in good working order, and I would have enjoyed playing on the water with the boats and paddle board. oh well, next time!

The home is beautiful! It was completely stocked with anything we needed! Cheri was always just a phone call away with any help we needed!

Simone catered dinner for our group, the food was fabulous and Simone is a sweetheart, so easy to work with!

Thank you so very much for sharing this incredible home with us! If we ever need a rental home in Tampa again, this will most definitely be it!!!

Breathtaking View

  • 5 of 5

I want to thank the Bett's for being so easy to get in touch with and every question or concerned we had, they were able to answer or find the answer. The home is very spacious yet open for entertaining. The view is one of a kind!!!! Absolutely breathtaking. I have no doubt that my family will be back and we will only stay at " Gilligan's House". Thanks once again Mr. and Mrs. Bett.
