About the property

With 2 kitchens, it's PERFECT for multi-family vacations & fishing trips

If you are looking for FUN in the sunshine state, this home is perfect for you. It has a 700 sq ft studio upstairs with a king size bed, a 2nd kitchen and lots of room for larger families and groups of friends to enjoy.

Our full-size pool table and ping pong table top will entertain you for hours. This home also provides outdoor fun - we offer canoe rentals for you to fish or just explore Sunset lake. This location is perfect for cookouts - we have a gas grill and lots of outdoor seating. During the evening, relax in our screened in patio as the sun sets or roast marshmallows on the fire pit.

Note the spiral staircase leading upstairs is a little narrow 24" so we recommend carry on size suitcases for those who will sleep upstairs.

We are near The Eagles Golf club, Odessa Equestrian (4.2 miles), Suncoast Stables (4.6 miles), True Sky stables, USF campus (19 miles).

About Shirley S Johnson

Shirley S Johnson purchased this house in 2013

Why Shirley S Johnson chose Tampa

With our full size pool and ping pong table, you can be entertained for hours. There is plenty of space upstairs to inflate a queen size air mattress (provided) for extra company. You have a 2nd kitchen upstairs so larger families or 2 families can use the space and not feel like they are on top of each other.

Free Wi-Fi. This home also offers endless outdoor fun times with our canoe available on site to explore Sunset lake, a fire pit by the lake and a gas BBQ grill.

What makes this house unique

Great for multi generations, teenagers and also multi family gatherings. It is large enough not be on top of each other with 2 kitchens and plenty of room to spread.

Enjoy canoeing or kayaking on Sunset lake and playing ping pong and games together.

This home is on a cul-de-sac and traffic is limited to neighbors only and the neighborhood is very quiet and friendly.

Recommend - Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

The kitchen was a full size kitchen and stocked with about anything you would need. The rooms are large, even has a ping pong/pool table. The bed was comfortable. We enjoyed the screen-in porch. Wish we had time to enjoy the fire pit, it was a nice area with a fish pond. The upstairs area was cute. The bathroom could use an update. Over all it was neat and clean and we enjoyed our stay.

Feb 1 to 15 stay at Odessa

  • 3 of 5

Good quiet location. Property needs updating. Given wrong entry code, had to call to gain access. Had to call for wifi access. No place for 5 or 6 people to dine together after dark.

Drapery rod broken in living room. Refrigerator was leaking water. TV inoperative in upstairs living area. Outside areas need cleaning up. If it wasn't for the screened in porch this stay would have been a disaster. We did get a quick response from property managers when called with our problems.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. Our location is definitely quiet and enjoyable. The home is equipped with keyless entry and a personalized 4 digit pin is assigned to each guest. Since it is manually programmed, something may have gone wrong so we have changed the process to ensure the access pin is no longer an issue. The home WiFi password is included in the ARRIVAL PROCESS document that we ask all guests to read and reply via email to confirm receipt. The Wi-Fi info is highlighted in bright Yellow too so it is easily seen at a glance however just in case the password is still missed, it is posted on site going forward. Ref. "No place for 5 or 6 people to dine together after dark" that should not have been an issue for his group of just 4... having said that, that's absolutely true. We have 1 dining table in the screened in porch (seats 4) and a 2nd dining table upstairs. The ping pong table took the place of the downstairs indoors dining table and it is not only for entertainment but it does convert into a dining table that seat 10+. We are currently looking for the correct (non standard) benches that fit our dining / ping pong table. Soon to come! Until then, the porch seating accommodates 8 with a peaceful view of the water. The broken drapery rod has already been replaced and we have also replaced the older curtains with 4 new ones to bring outside natural light in. The TV upstairs is fully operative and was not the issue. Spectrum (our cable provider) came and stated that occasionally ON DEMAND causes their software to glitch. They replaced the cable box but said this could happen again as they don't have a permanent solution to this issue. If it does happen again, dialing 611 from the home phone will get their technician back there same day so it shouldn't be a big concern. We also do have a total of 4 TVs plus 1 projector for your entertainment. Our staff is just a phone call / text away and we will do everything in our power to make your stay enjoyable.

Very peaceful and quiet. Relaxing screened-in lanai. The bonus room upstairs was nice.

I thought it was pricey for what it was. Home was clean, grounds were not well kept. Ping ping and look table were nice. Beware of walkways at night, they are not well lit and I took quite the fall. We enjoyed the property.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback Carol and sorry about your fall. Our First Yard rule states to "Bring a Flashlight to use at night time as you go to the yard lower level". It is posted on the Exit door to the back yard because although we have solar lights throughout the yard, they don't always work on cloudy days/nights. We've now added two 90 Watt spotlight pointing at the steps and they should turn on automatically at dusk to illuminate the steps. We have very unique and beautiful "Ybor City" red bricks in our driveway and steps. Please use Caution when walking in our yard. Thank you.
