I arrived to one of the Villas (The Palm) to find that the steps to the porch were cracked. Upon entry, the place smelled. When I looked up the ceilings in the bedrooms was peeling and falling down. There were spaces between the ceiling wood panels We found pieces of the ceiling on the floor by the night table. In one of the bedrooms, was a 2 inch roach crawling on the ceiling over the bed. The yard was creepy looking and unkept. The villa faces a parking lot and there was major road construction in the surrounding area. Both were an eye sore for sitting on the porch. the kitchen and bathroom were clean and well equipped. The beds were comfortable except for the view of the peeling ceiling. We were shocked by the view from the windows - peeling paint and the washing machine. The online pictures were very deceiving. What we paid for a nightly stay, we could have stayed in two separate rooms at a hotel with breakfast included. We could have stayed at channel side and taken the trolley to see Ybor City. Don't recommend this villa to anyone especially our friends and family.
My son and I have stayed in the area for a number of years and I have to say it's the nicest one all round.We rented the Cigar House. We felt comfortable the minute we we walked in the door. Everything that was stated on line and it was even better. The location was perfect, house spotless and the service impeccable.
The house is absolutely charming and beautifully decorated. We stayed here while attending a wedding- me, my mother, and granddaughter each had our privacy. The hosts brough Cuban coffee and made sure we were settled in. The house was so lovely that many of our kin dropped by to see or to spend time with Grandma sitting on the porch rockers. We got a feel for Ybor City and a way of life that's long gone.
