Great spot, lovely home, very roomy.

  • 5 of 5

We certainly enjoyed this great home, even though it was too cool for the pool. We came to the area to see Spring Training Baseball games and this home has easy access to both the Yankee and the Phillies fields. There is a grocery store and and Walmart actually within walking distance...which we did on numerous occasions. This home also has easy access to Clearwater to enjoy the beaches. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and took numerous walks around the area. Great place to stay. Oh, also, each bedroom has a TV..a nice bonus.

Great time, great location, owner or manager are non intrusive.

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable and clean describes this rental well. Less than 15 minuets from the airport and other Tampa attractions. Your pets are welcome, and there was no hint of them being there afterwards. The owners never came snooping by and were very receptive to texts. At this price point, if not for little oversights like a non working toaster, worn out linens, tired landscaping and lack of basic kitchen spices, they would have earned 5 star star rating.

Stay was nice but dryer didn’t work and some kind of bugs were all over the house

  • 4 of 5

Very nice but the dryer didn’t work and all of my girls had to but clothes because of it. There were some kind of bugs all over the house that kind of looked like carpenter ants and two of my girls(there were 7 of us all together) had bite marks on them. Other than that it was a nice stay. Very friendly renters!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. We are truly sorry about the dryer dying prior to your arrival. It has been replaced with a brand new dryer that works great. We also got our pest control service to retreat the home and take care of the ants you saw.

comfortable and accommodating

  • 4 of 5

We had issues with the tvs not being connected properly. We had a 3 year old that wanted to watch his little movies. She came right over and one cable was not appropriate and she went out and purchased the right one. Shirley didn't leave until everything was right. She had also placed a bottle of champagne in the frig for New Years Day. She unfortunately could not do anything about the weather. Everything was very convenient close by and easy to find. Thank you for the use of your home.
