Top Tampa Retreat!
My large extended family of 14 people take a week to 10 day vacation every summer. Each year we rent a big home so we can stay together in one house. From California to Puerto Rico there has been no better rental home for us than this home in Tampa. First, the size and cleanliness of the home is incredible. We felt good about the place as soon as we walked in! There is plenty of space for a large family to socialize and reconnect. The home is newly renovated and has an open flow throughout. The gourmet kitchen is perfect for several cooks to prepare and cleanup after a large meal. The large grill is conveniently located just off the open flow kitchen. The kitchen is fully stocked with matching plates, forks, knives etc...The chef knives and steak knives were of great quality too. We had every gadget and appliance we needed, all top end and in great condition. There was nothing more we needed in the kitchen. We were so impressed by this. As I said, we have rented large family homes for over 15 years and this is by far the most well appointed ever. The pool area and hot tub were a great way to relax and refresh after a busy day of sightseeing. We went kayaking on the river, played pool, ping pong and played board games in the evening. The living room is very comfortable and great for lounging around and watching movies at night. The dining room is a warm and wonderful place for a large family meal and there is even more seating right off the kitchen. The bedrooms were large and bright with plenty of drawer and closet space. Also, there were extra cots in all the bedrooms with good mattresses and linens ready to use. We were so impressed by the attention to detail. The location is great for many Tampa attractions. Busch Gardens and the zoo are practically next door. Clearwater and St. Petersburg were highlights of our stay as well. Above all, Connor our host, was great to work with from the start. He is friendly and very communicative . Whenever we had a question he was prompt and courteous with a reply. I would highly recommend this upscale quality home to anyone wishing for an exceptional stay in Tampa.
