  • Wished there were beach chairs to use for the beach.


    Glad there was a washer/dryer for our use. Unfortunately, the dryer vent was backed up with lint from previous usage. It caused a considerable amount of dust in the house. We were sweeping and dusting the floor every day. My husband realized the light switch at the bottom of the stairs didn't have a cover.

    Thank you for your attention

  • Ruskin - 2 Bedroom Villa Near Little Harbor


    Our stay at the villa was very enjoyable and relaxing. Just what we needed. There was a nice view of the canal from the spacious deck. The rooms were very clean and the furniture was comfortable and in good condition. If you are in the mood to cook, the kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans, etc. It also included , spices, vegetable oil, teas, coffee, espresso, sugar, plastic bags, aluminum foil, and cleaning products, etc. The bathroom was stocked with amenities, including a first aid kit, which came in very handy. Downtown Tampa is easy to get to from the villa - about a 40 minute drive depending on traffic. If you are looking for a nice, spacious place on a quiet road, look no further. I highly recommend staying there.

    Well maintained quiet location. Property manager was great, offered us the opportunity to check in earlier in the day and responded promptly to any communication we had with her.
