We are proud to be a 7 time award winner on each of our 7 rentals on Trip Advisor and Flipkey. Our clients feel they receive the ultimate service when staying with us. We strive to be the best in the rental industry. We hope to engage you in the same experience when you visit us too. Here is a perfect waterfront setting on the Hillsborough River. The views are amazing and gorgeous. This charming cottage is a one bedroom suite with a sleeper couch so it can sleep four people. It has a full kitchen and bathroom with a shower. Whether it's the river view or the privacy of your own room this house provides a family or corporate experience. This rental is ideal. Visitors of the Tampa Bay area find the location to be convenient and accessible as it is only fifteen minutes away from Tampa International Airport as well as some of the area's best restaurants and shopping districts in Seminole Heights. Other attractions such as Busch Gardens and the Hard Rock Casino are conveniently only 5 minutes away. Unlike most 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 qhuestions 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 hearing from you soon!More
