Feel like your at home in a fully equipped kitchen where you are able to prepare a home-cooked meal. Enjoy waking up in sunny Tampa, Florida full of lush landscaping and beautiful palm trees and stroll through this charming neighborhood to one of the many local parks along the river within minutes from your vacation home. Unlike most vacation rentals we are not run by a property manager. Like most of our customers, our experiences have not been the best with property managers as they are usually not available when you need them. We own and operate the properties and offer you our undivided personal attention that you deserve. We have been very selective in the location of our properties so you feel safe and enjoy the environment you are staying in too. Your safety is our priority and many rentals are on busy streets and in questionable neighborhoods not even safe to walk in during the day. We live within minutes from all of our rentals and upon arrival will greet you at the property to familiarize you with the security code and WiFi code and any questions you may have. We are on call 24/7 to meet your needs and make sure you have the optimum experience to create a vacation of elation! We look forward to seeing you soon :)More

Enjoy the tree lined streets for walking, jogging or bike riding and visit one of the many fine restaurants in a trendy area that is fast becoming an urban destination! Busch Gardens, Adventure Island and Lowry Park Zoo are minutes away. Downtown Tampa; with the Florida Aquarium, Performing Arts, museums, restaurants, Channelside and beautiful historic Ybor City, with it's international flavor of restaurants and nightlife. All within a 10 minute drive! The Hardrock Cafe and the Amphitheater, located next to the Florida fairgrounds, literally minutes away.

Getting around
The best way to see the sights in Tampa is Uber. Uber is a great way to get around to the immediate destination spots in Tampa: Ybor City, The Hard Rock, Downtown, Busch Gardens and Adventure Island, Amelie Arena (hockey & concerts) Raymond James Stadium (home of the Buccaneers & USF football). If planning to head to the beaches, car rentals are a great choice too.
