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 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.

Home away from home ...
If your looking for a comfortable, relaxing, safe, home for your family in Tampa - this is your home away from home. From the moment you open the door you will have a magical feeling! Staying at Gilligans House will make you forget you have work email I can guarantee you that! The home is spacious and the yard is a place of tranquility. We even had a visit from a dolphin! Don’t forget to ask to meet the one and only Gilligan but only for the lovers of Dog Drool ! The owners Cheri & Ken are amazing and if there is something you need they are a phone call away. We are ready to rebook and next time our furry friends we left in NJ may join us as they are welcomed too. Although there is so much to do in Tampa you might find yourself wanting to stay “home”.

Beautiful! It was perfect!
I was there with 7 guys on a golf trip. It is located close to the airport and the major highways. It was amazing to be able to golf and then come home and relax in the pool. It was so relaxing at night to be able to sit in the back by the fire pit and just hangout. Cheri was amazing and super helpful. We will be coming back again! 5 Star experience!
Way beyond what we expected
The Gilligans Island House was absolutely amazing. Myself and 8 others came to Tampa for our annual kayak fishing trip, we were all able to sleep comfortably in the house. Cheri was more than accommodating to our needs. The location is perfect we were able to get to all of our fishing spots with ease and we were even able to do some fishing in the canals behind the house. We will definitely be returning in the future. One of the most memorable fishing trips to date.
This is so much more than a home from home!
We were in Tampa for our eldest son's wedding, Gilligan's gave us the perfect base for our wedding preparations, and also for some brotherly fun for both our sons before Ian embarks on his life as a married man.
Thank you so much!
Perfect for our family weekend
We were in Tampa for a family wedding in March. We had 9 Adults and 1 infant stay in Gilligan’s Island House and it worked out really well. The house was clean and was well stocked with dishes, cooking utensils, a portable crib, bikes and pool toys. There were lots of games and books and three separate areas to hang out. Having a washer and dryer was a real plus for our nephew’s parents. The location was great - on a quiet street with a fabulous view. I was concerned as to whether the proximity to the airport would mean plane noise but happily found out this was not the case. The owner, Cheri, was incredibly responsive and provided lots and lots of helpful information. We would stay here again for sure if the opportunity arises.
We had a great time. Lots of fishing, catching dfferent fish and crab. Loved sitting out at night by a fire. Played games on patio. Couldn't have asked for anywhere else to relax and enjoy the Florida weather! We cooked a majority of meals there and kitchen was nicely stocked to do so. Just so many pluses to our stay at this home!
Gilligan's Island House is located in a waterfront and golfing community. The location is centrally located and is generally 25 minutes or less to anywhere in the Tampa Bay Area.
