Overall the house was pleasant-perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

Myself and 4 of my friends rented the house for my bachelorette party and very much enjoyed our stay! We loved the bright cherry walls, our own bedrooms (the master being pretty spacious with a nice private bathroom/shower), the wet bar area, the beautiful canal view with kayaks for evening adventures, the pool, and the bonus little things like a Keurig in the kitchen.

We didn't spend a ton of time in the house because we wanted to explore the town, which was the perfect location for what we were looking for; Ybor city only being a 30 minute Uber drive away with an amazing night life!

The reason I'm only giving the house 4 stars rather than 5 is because the jacuzzi did not get hot and the pool light wasn't replaced so our night entertainment was cut short from absolute darkness (aside from the flashlights on our phones). However, after texting the owner of the house Bret he apologied and offered to extend our stay; which was appreciated, but not taken up on because our schedules would not allow it.

All in all, my friends and I had a wonderful trip. The house could use a little TLC--but I would absolutely recommend it.

Owner's Response: Amber, Glad to hear you liked the house so much! We dicussed the hot tub situation with the owner and he told us that the water is changed before every guest and sometimes takes a bit to warm up. We are sorry this occured. Best, The Evolve Team

Bret was great to work with.

  • 3 of 5

The house and property were good. The kids and grandkids loved the pool. Living room was comfy. There were ants in the house and the front window leaked terribly during the storm. Bret was very responsive when I let him know about the leak. Overall was a positive experience. Thank you!

Property was as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

I don't give five stars but after reading some of the low star ratings I believe it appropriate. This is a rental home not a five star all inclusive resort. There may be a few water stains on the ceiling, and a wobbly chair by the pool, but the house was well equipped and beautiful. The pool and hot tub inside a screened in back porch was awesome. The house is located in a nice residential area away from tourists but close enough to drive to all the area attractions in a reasonable amount of time.

Needs deep cleaning and maintenance!

  • 4 of 5

The house is nice and provided us our needs for our stay, however the house needs a good deep cleaning and serious maintenance. The hot tub does not get hot, the grill is to dirty to cook on and the screens have to many holes for you to enjoy the pool area without all of the bugs. The house is dirty and full of bugs also. But there is bug spray, plenty of restaurants and beachs around so you can swim.

Nice Exterior, Inside needs some care

  • 2 of 5

The interior has a ant problem, and we seen multiple cockroachs inside. Never walk or put your hands anywhere in the dark lol. You can tell the property was only spot cleaned, all the corners had codwebs and some cupboard doors broken and hanging. Beds were very uncomfortable and pillows were uncomfortable. We bought our own for the stay. The patio door also the lock was broken and we had to fix it ourself. We love to bbq however propane tank was also very low on propane, which was supposed to be included in our stay. The pool was nice, however the hot tub was dirty. The water was very cloudy, and we found earrings and dirt in the bottom. We never used it because it was gross. Otherwise, a nice area. Nice little dock out back of the house. Close to grocery stores and golf course, also not to far from shopping amenties. We did busch gardens, the aquarium and adventure island. Our son loved the pool and spent many hours in it! Florida is a beautiful place, however i would not recommend this house. We have stayed other places for alot cheaper and was way cleaner and nicer. We did enjoy our trip however the house was not up to standards for the price we paid.
