Best place with the best deal

5 of 5
Every year we travel to Tampa Bay area for our summer vacation for the last 6 years. My family and I stayed in this place this year. I cannot explain how nice this place is. Everything that we needed for a vacation was there. Kids loved the pool with the slide and diving board. We could catch fish right off the dock with the fishing rods that was provided by the owner to us. Manatees are staying there all the time. Dolphins come and go; you just need to look for them. Beautiful birds were coming to the pool area all the time. The house is so clean. We cooked and BQ all the time without any problem. Everything we needed for a luxury living was there. The owners were very nice and friendly. They helped us a lot. We have already booked this place for our next vacation with them in 2010. I don’t want to go anywhere else.
