About Fawna Branigan

I'm a construction manager with an Engineering firm so I travel quite a bit to different projects around the world. This place is one of three places I like to call home. It is always a great place to unwind and just get away from it all.

Fawna Branigan purchased this house in 2015

Location is Key! Spectacular View! Hosts are wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a last minute place for extended family to stay in the Apollo Beach area. This home is perfect. The view is spectacular! The home is decorated lovely. There is a difference between a house for rent and a home for rent. This is a home. It has everything one needs to be comfortable. Fawna and Jason are attentive hosts. They made everything easier for us. This home is spacious. The bedding was comfortable. We all slept well. The area is peaceful and safe. This home is centrally located. This is close to everything one needs to vacation in the Tampa Bay area. It is 30 minutes to Busch Gardens/Adventure Island. It's 30 minutes to the Tampa Riverwalk. It's 40-45 minutes from the Tampa Airport, 45-50 minutes to some of the best beaches in the area (Siesta Key, Anna Maria Island and many more fabulous beaches). You can travel North to Tampa/Brandon area and South to the Bradenton/Sarasota areas. Travel East to Orlando - about 1 1/2 hours. Travel West to Clearwater/Clearwater Beach about 50-60 minutes. If we have the need again, this is the home we will choose to rent. Pricing is on point.

Thank you for hosting our family!

Relaxing family gathering place

  • 4 of 5

The Apollo Beach home was a great gathering spot for my husband and I, along with our daughter, husband, and four grandsons. The house is nicely furnished and equipped, and is laid out in a way that provides for both privacy and togetherness, as desired. Everyone loved the pool, and the big boys enjoyed fishing off the dock as well. We didn't use the kayaks because we weren't sure how to safely get them into the water and access them from the dock, since there was no ladder. We appreciated the access to WiFi and cable TV options. Thank you for providing this nice get-away!

Great place, great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this home. Price is spot on! Home is very spacious, very relaxing, welcoming. It is a home as stated in other reviews. The view outside was breathtaking. Although we never saw a manatee swim by during our stay, it was so peaceful to sit on the pier and have your quiet time. The pool was colder than we thought it would be (in March) but the kids did not care (neither did the parents). They enjoyed it and the toys that were there. With sun and temps in the mid-80's, it warmed up nicely. The pool cleaners did come out during our stay which surprised us. It was appreciated but a surprise. We did not fish or anything as poles were no longer available, but you can see fish all over out at the pier. We did not use the kayaks but it was super cool to use them if we wanted. I was just nervous on how to get it in the water.

There is so many cute little places to eat or visit in this town. It's a quiet and cute town, just look for the places that are hidden! Very relaxing. Lots of marinas in the area too.

The only thing that kept me from giving this place 5 stars was the need for some attention to the little things in the house (available cleaning supplies, paper towels, empty dishwasher or run it so the new renters do not have to wash dishes when they arrive, remove the wash and put in the dryer before new renters, wash the rooms/floors). Just a little TLC is all.

Overall, amazing place and you will feel right at home. I have recommend this place already too.

A relaxing family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family getaway. We enjoyed the pool (even though it was a bit cold) and the kids had fun fishing off the dock! Great proximity to everything we needed and within a 30 minute drive to the Tampa zoo and dino world!! Loved having coffee on the porch and looking at the water every morning. Would definitely stay again!!
