“Family Reunions---this is the place”

Reviewed 28 Apr 2016

Our family gathered in Tampa to celebrate several birthdays occurring in the same week - one birthday celebrant turned 75. This house was great for our gathering. One grandchild found a new activity - fishing; two others loved being in the pool all day. The guitar-playing adults enjoyed sitting outdoors on the covered patio playing their guitars and singing. All enjoyed being able to cook and eat out side without mosquitoes and bugs. Seven of us stayed at the house and nine others joined us during the days. Lots of places to sit, enough dish ware for the meals, beds were very comfortable. It is large, clean, inviting and we loved the name "Gilligan's Island"! We would rent this place again.

“Fabulous vacation house!”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2015

This house is truly a remarkable place to stay! My family of 8 had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the pool and the view of the canal. You will not be disappointed if you rent this house.

Owner's reply: We are thrilled that you enjoyed the home. It's an honor to provide a place for guests to relax and enjoy being together. We hope to see you again!

Location, relaxation, and more.

We stayed at Gilligan's Island House after the referral of a friend who had heard about it from another friend. We weren't sure about staying because it had not been listed yet. We spoke to the owners dircectly and they seemed straightforward. I'm glad we decided to take a chance on this place! It's location is convenient to everywhere. Lots of places to eat near by too. We went to Bahama Breeze by car, but realized we could have gone by boat. It is in a nice neighborhood. Very close to the airport! We were able to get to Busch Gardens in about 30 minutes. My wife lounged by the pool with our kids, the morning I went golfing at the golf course. Our teenager enjoyed taking out the kayak. We loved sitting on the daybed and resting in the hammock. It's quiet and relaxing. Sheree was nice and helpful. We will definitely come again.
