“Great family get-away”

Reviewed 17 Jan 2017

Lovely three bedroom home with a beautiful kitchen about a half hour out of Tampa. Nichole was a gracious hostess and made sure that the house and our experience there was all we wanted. As it was in December, she even hooked up a gas heater for the pool (which is usually heated by solar energy.) We had a great time!

Owner's reply: Kathryn, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We know things are always a little crazy around the holidays. It is most helpful for our future guests to have these kind of reviews. Thank you and we look forward to serving your family again in the future. Nichole

“Great place”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2016

Our initial rental was cancelled three days before our vacation, luckily this property was available. It was clean, with a pool and near to all the attractions. The owner was a delight. Thank you Nicole for the hospitality, our family enjoyed this property very much! I highly recommend this vacation rental.

“Wonderful & Relaxing”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2016

We recently stayed at Nichole's home and appreciated the relaxing environment. The home was ready for our arrival, including maps and recommendations that Nichole provided. Nichole was very accommodating with our late arrival and stopped by to answer questions and provide assistance. The home was nicely furnished - plenty of space for our family of 6. Kitchen and laundry amenities were perfect, with a nice supply of towels (always a consideration for our family). The home is in a quiet area, in close proximity to grocery and local restaurants. Our kids loved by pool and we were pleased with the patio furniture and "beach gear" that was available for our use. The house is about an hour's drive to Florida beaches and attractions. Will stay here again for our next getaway to the sunshine state!

“Great spring break”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2016

We had a great trip. We celebrated our daughters senior year in high school with her and some friends. We loved the heated pool. There was plenty of room for all of us to spread out. I would definitely recommend this house. We had to drive a little bit to get to some of the things we wanted to see but it was nice to be away from the big crowds.

Owner's reply: Karen, Thanks for taking the time to post! This is very helpful to future guests. Yes, we are a quiet middleclass family town on the southern shores of Tampa Bay. We are away from the crowds and central to various attractions like theme parks and gulf beaches. nichole

“Great Vacation”

Reviewed 30 Mar 2016

We were lucky enough to spend 2 weeks here. The area is great and the house is even better. Nicole has done everything to make to make this a very relaxing vacation.

Owner's reply: We appreciate your feedback and know you will be returning next year, trying to contact other regular guests and secure the dates you desire. It was a pleasure to have your family as guests. Nichole

“Yes would rent again”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2015

My wife and I loved the home, and the pool. Didn't give it 5 stars because we don't think anything is perfect. Plus Nichole ask of not too. Would stay there again in a heartbeat if we were to go to Florida.

Owner's reply: Don and Peggy, Thank you for taking the time to send a review! To better explain star rating.....I was telling Don and Peggy, that I agree with them that the house is wonderful for what it is! We are a middleclass, family, lived in home, in a like neighborhood surrounded by loving, helpful people. For those that have pristine homes, they would probably not rate it 5 stars. Great neighbor helpers include Don, Tammy, Neil, and another neighbor Tammy. Surrounded by caring neighbors.

“relaxing family vacation”

Reviewed 31 Mar 2015

great house for a large family to get together & relax. quiet peaceful house the only reason not a five star is that to get to any beaches Clearwater, St Pete's, Siseta Keys you drive an hour or hour & half depending on traffic. Also while playing cards on patio enjoying the sunset you need to remember while you are on vacation that the neighbors are not so quiet by 9 p.m. the owner was THE BEST taking me to Sam's club recommending Circles we loved the food, beaches, etc Nichole is probably the kindest person we have ever rented from & this was our 12 time in 5 states just can not say enough about her organization to detail that your stay is PERFECT, it was worth the driving!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Owner's reply: Laurie, Thank you for your informative review. I do wish to say while our closest beach is just 1.5 miles from the home, it was closed to be refurbished during your visit. Unfortunately the county was not courteous enough to give us notice of this. There are also 2 small beaches about 5 miles to the south. Big gulf beaches are typically about 45 minutes, but it was spring break during your stay. No other complaints in 10 years of noise from neighbors, poss. another home with spring breakers

“Amazing vacation rental”

Reviewed 16 Mar 2015

Our stay at Apollo Beach was perfect thanks to this vacation property. Nichole, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with, the house was very clean and definitely had all the amenities our party of 11 needed for our stay. We were 2 families with a total of 5 children ranging from 2 to 7 years old, plus 2 grandparents. There was enough room for all of us to feel comfortable without having to use the extra sleep-sofa/bed in the frontroom. The pool area was perfect, very relaxing, facing east so lots of sun in the morning and throughout the afternoon, with a view of the canal and a lot of surrounding trees. We used the outdoor grill area every day, and spent most our time outside. We also got to fish on the deck with the kids, with the fishing poles that are available in the garage. We also appreciated the multiple beach chairs and beach umbrellas found in the garage. There are a lot of beaches within resonnable driving distance and a lot of activities for the younger kids as well (we quite enjoyed the Lowery Park Zoo in Tampa). I definitely recommend this vacation property and would stay here again without hesitation. Thank you Nichole!

Owner's reply: Wow! Yolande and family, Thank you for the informative review! The kind of specifics that you give regarding pool, bedding, amenities of the home and zoo are extremely helpful to those looking for a place to rent. I would love to have you return again. It is always nice to be able to share travel experiences with family. We are hosting another family from Canada this week and they mentioned what a great bargain the hokey tickets are: $240 for a family of 8 just 25 minutes from the rental.
