About the property

2 bedroom/1 bathroom duplex, landscaped pool, near beaches

This fabulous, easy-going and relaxing get-away for friends, couples, a family or solo travelers, is a comfortable duplex in a quiet, friendly neighborhood, near beaches. The fenced and landscaped backyard with non-heated pool is shared with a lovely family in the next door unit. The yard and pool are maintained by weekly services, but the pool will need regular surface skimming for the leaves by guests when they want to use the pool.

About Lisa Patella

My name is Lisa Patella. Our company has just recently purchased this well taken care of vacation home. We own several properties all with very happy tenants. We pride ourselves in providing exceptional housing.

I live locally so can attend to any needs of our guests. I have lived here for 20 plus years and absolutely love it. I enjoy going to the beaches, kayaking, hiking and attending the year round festivities of all the local towns.

Lisa Patella purchased this house in 2016

Why Lisa Patella chose Largo

We purchased this property because it was in a great location with easy access to beaches and to Taylor Park for recreational activities. The property was also in very good condition, with a great backyard and pool perfect for vacationers.

What makes this house unique

The tropical backyard with patio for outdoor grilling and the pool makes this unit a very wonderful place to relax when you are away from home.

Everything was just as pictured and the place was great.

  • 5 of 5

Lisa was a delight to have as a host. We enjoyed each and every day staying at her place. I cannot think of one negative thing to say. We very much enjoyed sitting on the patio and gazing at the pool, also taking leisurely walks around Taylor Park with Angus our dog.

A great place to eat is PJ'S Oyster Bar in Indian Rocks Beach, the grouper sandwich (blackened ) is a must. I enjoyed it no less than seven times in our two months there. Another treat would be John's Pass, lots of shops, good food and drink.

But most of all this is a wonderful place to stay. We are booked for next year and can't wait to come back. Thank you very much Lisa.

Great duplex for a family with kids

  • 5 of 5

We felt very at home at Dryer Avenue. The unit is well maintained and clean. We found the rental to be as depicted in the photos.

The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need for cooking. Unlike other rentals we have stayed in, I never felt like I had to just "make due" with what was available. Also, there was a booster seat available making it so much easier for us to have dinner as a family with our almost two year old.

One of the bedrooms is huge. We fit a pack and play (which was already at the unit) with lots of room to spare.

There is a smart TV in the unit so we were able to relax and watch Netflix after our kids went to bed. There were also magazines, games and books available.

There is a closet filled with all different items for the beach: towels, mats, chairs, sand toys, small surf/wave boards, etc. Really, all you need to bring is your clothes to have a great time here!

The washer/dryer is small, but was super nice to have access to.

The neighborhood is very residential and quiet. The location is great. We were 20 minutes to the beaches and about 40 minutes from the airport in Tampa. There were grocery and dining options less than five minutes from the unit. There is a park about 1/4 mile with a great walking/running trail and a playground for the kids.

Lisa was a very responsive and proactive host. She called to let us know someone would be coming to fix the porch light and if there was anything else we would need. She responds very quickly to any emails I sent her.

Overall, I would recommend the unit to anyone looking for a quiet get away with family.

Lovely home and pool.

  • 5 of 5

Squeaky clean. All you needed to bring was your toothbrush and clothes. Such a relaxing stay. We hated to go home. Such a unique location. Close to beaches, Tarpon Springs, Johns Pass, and Clearwater, and Ybor City. Can't Waite to rebook.

Everything is exactly as shown in pictures, and more.....

  • 5 of 5

Last year on our honeymoon we were "duped" by old/fake pictures. This rental was everything we saw and more. All of the previous renters filled out a guest book with local finds and attractions that the liked, not to mention Lisa (owner) and all the previous renters seem to be great people, the house is stocked with necessities, there's a pack and play, booster seat, pool and beach toys....anything you think you forgot is probably there. There is a county park within walking distance, 3 beaches within a 10-15 minute drive, and countless amazing restaurants. The pool on site is great, the neighborhood seemed safe, we don't have one complaint, and as soon as we walked in we sighed in relief that we got exactly what was advertised. We would definitely recommend this rental to anyone. Me and my wife took our 2 and 12 year olds and we all loved everything about the house and the area!
