About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 And A Half Bath House On The River With Water And Downtown Views

Welcome to your own private oasis on the Hillsborough River with breathtaking water and downtown Tampa views. Relax on your own private dock with a cocktail while you wave to passing boaters and kayakers and enjoy seeing all the wildlife that calls the river home.

The river house has 1 large bedroom with a King size bed and en suite bathroom with shower.

There is an additional half bathroom as well and a stacked washer and dryer.

The kitchen/living room condo has breathtaking views of downtown Tampa and the river.

The house was built over 50 years ago and has all the charm of an old Florida house with all the modern amenities you can expect from a vacation rental.

The living room has a sectional couch that transforms into a very comfortable full size bed that will accommodate another couple or additional children.

The house also has it's own private gated parking lot for your vehicle.

Happy Thanksgiving on the River

  • 4 of 5

This morning I woke up in my own bed and the gray cold outside made me sad. I was already missing the warm sun shine, tea by the river, yoga on the deck, my paddle board on the water, and the family time we had in this intimate little cottage. Our extended family stayed in the second home, just off the river and it was a very nice place as well. We hosted Thanksgiving brunch at our place while the kids fished and awed over the many birds flying by. Later that day we had dinner outside of the other home - out back on the deck - a perfect set up for the 14 of our extended family. This was just the vacation I had hoped for. Being our over the water and being able to all be together (yet separate) for five nights made our trip complete.

My boyfriend and I chose to stay at this house because of its small size, and great location. Upon arrival, we were very happy with our choice. The house was very quaint, but well equipped. It was a very unique experience to actually be on the Hillsborough river (there are not any other houses in the area on the water)! We spent three days here, and were overall very happy with the stay.

There was although, some ongoing construction occurring on the main house that continued all day. At times it was loud and distracting.

This stay will remain in our memory for another reason as well: my boyfriend proposed there!

A wonderful house and was an easy transaction. I would highly suggest this house for your next Tampa vacation!

We loved it here! Woke up every morning sitting out on the deck watching the sun rise and enjoying the Tampa skyline! Such a beautiful view anytime of the day! It was such a convenient location to all the surrounding areas we wanted to visit! Can't say enough about this place! It was very clean and inviting! Views from every room! Loved our time here and will definitely recommend it to our visiting friends and family! Our daughter lives here so we will definitely be back!

Best Romantic Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we were both so impressed that we will be back again. It's so quiet and peaceful and the evening view from living room/kitchen is incredible with the city lights in the distance. The king size bed was like sleeping on a cloud - it was SO comfortable! I highly recommend dinner at Ricks's on the River just down the street. We also drove to St. Pete's beach which was a scenic 40-minute drive. Very worth it. Our stay at this river house was just amazing and I can't wait to come back!
