About BOB

HI. WE WOULD LIKE TO SHARE OUR HOUSE WITH YOU. WE HAVE DECORATED IT TASTEFULLY FOR THAT "FLORIDA" FEEL. WE WANT TO RENT THE HOUSE FOR AWHILE BEFORE WE RETIRE OURSELVES IN A FEW YEARS. WE LOVE IT HERE MASSACHUSETTS AND NEW HAMPSHIRE. BUT WHEN IT'S -20 HERE AND 70 THERE WE REALLY APPRECIATE ITS BENEFITS. WE HOPE YOU AGREE.

BOB purchased this house in 2010

Why BOB chose Gulf Harbors

WE WERE SOLD HERE BECAUSE OF ITS LAYOUT. THE 2 MASTER BEDROOMS ARE RATHER UNCOMMON, COMPLETELY SEPARATE FROM EACH OTHER. A FULL BATH IS INSIDE EACH OF THOSE BEDROOMS. A HUGE PLUS FOR 2 COUPLES SHARING THE HOUSE.

What makes this house unique

ONLY 35 MILES FROM TAMPA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. CENTRAL LOCATION TO MANY ATTRACTIONS. OR JUST RELAX CANAL SIDE, SWIM OFF THE DOCK, OR WATCH THE BOATS GO BY. THERE'S A VERY GOOD CHANCE YOU'LL SEE DOLPHIN AND MANATEE. GULF HARBORS WAS CREATED BY MAKING CANALS BY REMOVING LIMESTONE,WHICH NATURALLY MAKES THE WATER CRYSTAL CLEAR. KAYAK (SUPPLIED) THRU THE CANALS FOR EXPLORING. IF FISHING IS YOUR THING YOU CAN GET FISH RIGHT OUT FRONT ALL DAY LONG. GUARANTEED. THERE'S A CLEANING STATION OUTSIDE WITH WATER.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Excellent location!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We enjoyed our stay at this property. The home was very clean and had everything we needed. We enjoyed the kayaks that were provided. We even saw dolphins on one of our kayak trips. The home is in a great location, close to the beach and to restaurants. Bob was very helpful and was available for us if we needed anything.

We would love to come back again!!

Very clean. Comfortable furniture

  • 5 of 5

Older house, but updated well, and very clean. Each room does have a smart TV, but there is no cable, only a few off-the-air channels or you have to sign into your digital streaming accounts. This greatly confused my 83 yo father-in-law. Other than that small issue, everything else was great! Would most certainly rent it again, probably next year.

Really nice house.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing vacation, and enjoyed staying on the water. We even saw a manatee and her calf from the backyard. The house had lots of room and everything we needed. We would definitely rent here again.

Very comfortable, beautiful home and location. Owner is wonderful to work with!

We would like to thank Bob for an amazing week in Florida while we rented this home. We had 2 teenage sons with us who loved getting in the kayaks and exploring the canals, fishing off the docks, and riding the bikes around the neighborhood. The house had everything we needed and more. It has a very well stocked kitchen, towels and linens, fishing poles, kayaks, games, bicycles and so much more. Just bring your clothes and toothbrush and you are set for a great week. The house had plenty of room for everyone, little special touches throughout and just a great place to come home to after a day at the beaches. Sitting outside along the canal in the evening or going down to the private beach at night to watch the sunset was so peaceful and one of my favorite things.

We visited Honeymoon Island state park and my eldest son had a manatee swim right up to him. The beach was gorgeous and the swimming was great. We had a wonderful week and couldn't be more grateful that we were lucky enough to vacation here.

The owner, Bob, was more than happy to answer the gazillion questions I had and always responded quickly. If we vacation this way again, we will definitely try to book this house.

Great value!

This was my first experience with VRBO. The stay could not have gone any smoother. Bob, the owner of the home, was most helpful in making sure our stay was a great experience. The home has everything one could ask for at a very good price. A great stay!!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We and our three adult children had the privilege of renting this beautiful southern home for 15 nights in March 2017. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The home is very clean, tastefully decorated, and the owner was very helpful and prompt to answer our enquiries. The private beach is awesome – only about an 8-minute walk or 2-minute bike ride away! We were expecting a very small beachfront, but it is probably around 1000 feet of sandy beach, with just a few people sparsely spaced along it. We had cook-outs at the beach since it is equipped with fire pits, covered picnic tables, and nice bathroom facilities. The sunsets are glorious!

Part of our stay was spent having fun exploring the canals with the kayaks, fishing off the dock, and roaming the friendly neighborhood with the bikes/trikes. Highly recommended!
