We really enjoyed our stay in Tampa. Just shy of a Month, Mariannes house was the perfect spot for our extended stay for a work engagement. We had our 3 kids (4, 4 and 1) so the pool was a great entertainer. Close to the central hub of Tampa and easy access to facilities including shopping and restaurants. The house was clean, all amenities catered for and well maintained. Marianne was only ever an email away and quick to respond. Highly recommend this place if visiting or staying a little longer.
A very lovely place to get away to.
All our needs were met fully. So quiet and private, with a good kitchen, well stocked with the extras you need for creating meals. Marianne was so gracious in giving names and places to buy food, and there is an extensive collection of menus from restaurants if you don't cook. It was spacious, clean well maintained. Would love to go back.
Marianne was very welcoming and helpful. The house was clean and a lovely setting for a family weekend. The neighborhood is quiet except for overhead when planes are landing or taking off at nearby airport. We very much enjoyed ourselves.
It was very nice home, I would highly recommend it to others, Very nice and clean with a nice view. I would rate this place 5*****
Stayed for a week over Christmas in Marianne's wonderful lakeside house with my wife and 25 year old son. For us it was just perfect for a holiday visit: relaxed Florida vibe, but very clean and organized; a well-equipped kitchen for preparing light meals and snacks to consume by the pool; comfortable living room and bedrooms; lovely, quiet neighborhood; and close to restaurants and other conveniences.
I grew up in Tampa, and hope to stay here again on our next family visit. Thanks, Marianne!
The place was exactly as advertised. We easily fit 6 guys with no issues. A queen bed, king bed, two twins, air mattress, and all of the couches are big enough to sleep on. Place was clean and had plenty of supplies. Kitchen, Stereos, Xbox, Cooler, Beach Chairs, etc.
First I would like to say Marianne was very helpful throughout the whole process of renting us the home and the check in process. The home itself is beautiful, In a quiet residential neighborhood with access to several stores and places to eat within minutes driving. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone staying with a large group.
