We had the pleasure to rent this home for 6 months as we looked for our permanent home in Apollo Beach. There are so many reasons we loved this home and location, so here are some of them:
Why we loved this home:
Canal front in a great neighborhood
Being able to kayak or fish right from the dock
Fully furnished with everything we needed - even for an extended stay
Beach decor made it feel coastal and added to the experience of staying waterfront
Nicely remodeled and great living spaces
The lanai was a great place to grill, read, work, workout, etc. and great for our kids so they wouldn't go near the water
We loved the location of this home. It's downtown Apollo Beach so it's very close to everything..grocery stores, restaurants, CVS, coffee, spas, Apollo Meats, just about everything. Also minutes from the preserve which has awesome sunsets, great for walks, fishing, or a day playing in the sand. Minutes from the Manatee Viewing Center as well.
The overall location to visit other FL attractions is why we moved to Apollo Beach. There are so many places to visit within 30-60 minutes. Including Anna Maria Island, Sarosota, Siesta Key, St. Petersburg, Tampa, Busch Gardens, Clearwater; you'll never run out of things to do and a great location if you are visiting Florida to get to experience a variety of things at different places.
The owners are also amazing people who always responded promptly if we had questions or needed anything. I'll definitely have our friends and family stay here when they visit if it's available, since I know they'll really enjoy staying here.
My family stayed here over Christmas 2018 and we very much enjoyed our stay. The house nicely accommodated our family of 5, along with our dog. The fenced in yard was great especially with the dog. We sat outside every morning and evening and enjoyed listening to the birds in the peaceful, quiet neighborhood.
We visited downtown St. Petersburg (10 min) many times and enjoyed it's many nice restaurants.
Joshua was very responsive and helpful.
