About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Dana Shores, Tampa, FL, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
