About Darryl

Hi, my name is Darryl. I divide my time between this place and Atlanta. I like the property because of the terrific sunsets nearly every evening, and it's located directly on the bay. I also like quiet Ruskin (home of the famous Ruskin tomato) with it's old school Florida charm. And if you like more activity, it's a 20 minute drive (via Port of Tampa) to Ybor City in Tampa, or a marina at St. Pete, or about an hour and a half to Orlando. I hope you enjoy the place as much as I do!!!

Darryl purchased this cottage in 2011

Love the view..

  • 5 of 5

First we can’t say enough about Daryl and what a great and attentive host he is. The house has everything you can ever need and more. It’s big enough for 4 people and extremely comfortable. Open the back door and you are on the water with a gorgeous view. For us, it was a bit far from everything we need to do and the places we visited yet if you want to park the car and just relax, that’s the place. There are two apartments. We recommend the upstairs for more privacy. If we needed a place to stay and relax this would be it.

A perfect spot!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very quiet, beautiful spot. We rented the lower unit and it was immaculate. There was lots of room to store all our snowbird stuff and a perfect spot to sit with your morning coffee and look out over beautiful Tampa Bay. The owner/manager was very responsive and easy to work with, he was quick to respond to questions and accommodated our need to have a later check-out time.
