Home away from Home

First time staying at a VRBO and I must say it was a good experience. Wasn't sure what to expect but once I got settled in - all the away from home amenities were there. Nice close location - I golfed and went to Yankee Spring training games as well as dined at some nice restaurants. Clean, plenty of hot water, quiet neighborhood and comfortable beds. Rebecca was accommodating and even "left the light on" for me! :)

Beautifully decorated and clean

I love, love, loved the way this house was decorated. It is a small house, but oddly spacious for it's size. We had 5 women staying for a conference and we were very comfortable the entire time. At one point, we weren't able to find a corkscrew for our wine and called Mike to see if we just weren't looking in the right place. He was over to the house within 20 minutes supplying us with a brand new one that he went out and bought. He was like that the whole time we were there... If we had a question, he was more than happy to help. He was a fantastic host. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding top of the line. The only complaint we had was that they didn't have wine glasses (minor) and didn't supply toilet paper...we had to buy our own. This was not a big issue, but rather became quite a joke as we teased Mike about it every chance we got...and we made sure we had plenty of chances, haha! I would definitely return.

Thanks Stacy,


West Palm Beach, FL

adorable, charming and cozy!

This home is a wonderful place to stay. It was great for our weekend trip to busch gardens because it is so conveniently located. The decor is very charming and the place was very clean. The backyard is wonderful for children to play in. It has every amenity youth could possibly need and the owners are awesome and easy to deal with. I have already rented it again for our next visit in a few weeks! :)

Nice family home

We stayed at this house for our Spring Break vacation and we really enjoyed it. The bedrooms are very confortable, spacious and well decorated. The fact that there's a complete kitchen and a laundry room makes it very practical for a family. We went two adults and one 6 year old, but there's enough room for more people. The owners are reliable and well organized. Tampa is close to most attractions in the area, about 40 mins from Clearwater Beach, and hour and a half from Legoland for kids. During our stay, we also went to Lettuce Park and Honeymoon Island, which are were both beautiful parks. There are also many shopping areas close to the highway 275. For a quiet time, the backyard is perfect for breakfast, lunch or diner. The price is affordable considering the facilities. We would recommend this place for a young family.
