  • HIstoric visit


    This was a very enjoyable visit.

    The house was very clean. It exceeded my expectations. The security cameras and brinks system was excellant. I would recomend this house to anyone.

    The roosters were a suprise! They took a little getting used to and soon bacame a welcome addition to the visit.

    From the owners: "We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay and also our home. We wish more of our guests would employ all the features of our state-of-the-art security systems that we had installed for your comfort and safety. The roosters are something else. They are descendants of the Cuban fighting cocks brought to Ybor City in the late 1800s. They are protected birds, so like you, we've learned to accept them as part of the overall experience. Please stay again!"

  • Great house, unfortunate location....


    I have to start with the good, the house is beautiful, comfortable, clean and the management company is very responsive and proactive in communicating. The house is furnished very nicely and has all the towels, pillows, and appliances for a comfortable stay. It is very unfortunate that this house is in a scary neighborhood. The neighborhood is very run down, on 2 of the 3 nights we stayed there, we had uncomfortable run-ins with random people (one night a random person aggressively knocked on our door asking for money and my son was petrified the entire night that they were going to break in, another night a random car parked on the lawn of the house and loitered there for hours, without any explanation). We never felt safe being there, and that's something that no amenity can make up for, the neighborhood is just a scary place. It's unfortunate because the actual house is lovely, comfortable and cozy, it just cannot make up for that "I don't feel safe feeling here".

    From the owners: "We're happy that you found our home, and the amenities beautifully appointed. Our management company personnel are very courteous and helpful. This home is definitely a 5 star experience all the way. We're disappointed that you didn't read about the location of the property, as It is clearly listed. Ybor City is the "Bourbon Street" area of Tampa. It is known for its very lively atmosphere and diverse cultural neighborhood. To be approached for a donation by a stranger can be off-putting but we hardly think that we would classify it as scary. Next trip, we suggest staying in a more suburban setting."

  • Cozy cottage


    The place was even cuter then the pictures. When we had questions they were very attentive and responded quickly. Would definitely stay there again.
