Description of the Tampa vacation home rental
This is a truly awesome home that is situated on a 1/2 acre parcel on Lake Thomas. The fishing is great from the private dock. The lake only allows 10hp boats or less to ensure a peaceful stay with us. When you arrive you will find that the house has everything there for you. Just bring a suitcase of clothes, a cell phone (if you want to hear a phone ring) and your laptop (internet access is provided). The Large eat in kitchen has everything there for you, if we have missed anything, we welcome your suggestions! Both bathrooms are equipped with quality linens. All bedding is provided. Cleaning is done at the end of your stay, but daily cleaning service can be arranged for at an additional charge. A full size washer and dryer are provided for your convenience. You will be impressed with how peaceful and quiet the property is, and yet how close you are to all the conveniences. (Super Target is less than 2 miles away, and Great restaurants are 10 minutes and less)

No Exageration!!!
ClaudeR Kansas City Review Submitted: Feb 19, 2008 Date of Stay: Feb, 2008
This beautifully decorated and appointed house is a true jewel! This is the third time my wife and I have used vacation rentals and we have never been disappointed. This house is our favorite. With everything you could want in your own home, plus the view from the lanai, this is a true stress eliminator. It was fun to check the weather at home using the wireless internet hookup and note the 60 degree difference.

Great Family Hideaway

April 14, 2013

We stayed for two nights and wished we could have gotten the whole week! The house had everything we needed and the owner was very thoughtful in leaving clear instruction on everything. We spent two days visiting Busch Gardens and it was a deight to have the home to relax in after the park. Our granddaughters caught fish off the dock in the morning including a Two foot alligator Gar. We cooked Meals and the house had all the accessories needed For cooking and clean up. Other vacation homes we have rented did not stock items such as aluminum foil, storage bags, salt, pepper etc. it was refreshing not to have to purchase those items. The house was clean and comfortable tucked in a small neighborhood close to Busch Gardens, restaurants and stores. The owner was a pleasure to work with. We had a great time!

Owner's reply:

5 Star Stay

July 6, 2012

Just got back from a week here. Two adults and two teenage boys had plenty of space. The house had everything we needed. The paddle boat was nice. We could see a lot of fish in the lake but didn't try fishing. The location was convenient to Tampa and several Florida State Parks.

Owner's reply:

Glad you enjoyed your time at the house and had a safe trip home. Hope to hear back from you again in the future.

Thanks for your business!

Nice home

December 3, 2011

It's a nice home in a quiet neighborhood on a lake. Fully equipped house. Plenty of room, and very comfortable. Enjoyed the entire experience during my stay. I would recommend it to anyone staying in that area

We enjoyed every minute that we were at this beautiful home. It had everything that we needed and more. The porch was probably our favorite as we were in it a lot and ate out there as much as possible. Even could watch TV from the porch. So much fun to watch the wildlife in the lake. Tried a little fishing, but no luck that day. Nice neighbors too! If we ever get to come back, will definetly come back to this home. The weather could not have been better! So much to see in Florida and not enough time to do everything you want.

If you are tired of staying at hotels where everything is so cramped and you can hear when the rooms next door flush the toilet, then consider staying at this property. It is a little off the beaten path but next to a major highway that connects to anywhere you want to go.

serenity by the lake

April 14, 2010

Great place to relax, loved the calmness we felt there. Most of all enjoyed watching the lake activity of the herons and ducks. Would recommend it highly to friends in need of a place to stay while in the Tampa area.

Feels like a "home away from home"

August 10, 2009

I am the kind of person that is very skeptical of spending money for something that I am not looking at, but this place was exactly what was described. I was really pleased with the home and the surrounding area. Our family stayed for 1 week and we enjoyed ourselves very much. When we came back from riding around during the day, it was exactly what we needed to be able to unwind and relax in peace and quiet. The person that I spoke with for the rental was very nice and helpful too. We even left some things at the house and these things were returned without any hassle. I would recommend this place to anyone that would like a nice place to stay that is also affordable.

Beyond Expectations

March 30, 2009

4 of us were in the Tampa area for golf and spring training baseball, The home in Lutz met all of our needs and more, The setting is beautiful and the house was very clean and well furnished with everything we needed, We wanted to stay there again in March 2009 but it was already rented by January. We want it again next year (2010) but this time will rent it far in advance. We also got our security deposit well in advance.5 Stars without any doubt.This is the third home we've rented using Vacation Home Rentals and have always been very satisfied.

Christmas Holiday

December 30, 2008

We had a wonderful stay, the house is very nice and has almost everything you need. You can walk in with your clothes and everything else is there. The neighborhood is quiet but close to everything. My husband enjoyed relaxing and fishing the lake. It was great having a place where friends and family could come to us, insteady of running around to everyone while we are visiting. We would definitely recommend this house and using this service.
