NO REGRETS!!!!! Amazing stay!!! Planning to book again in the near future!!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures are accurate and the ambience was truly amazing!!! The kayaks were used and the children loved the pool as well!! Our 3 families slept comfortable during the entire stay. When our guest arrived on the last day we were there, we didn't even notice that there were about 30 people scattered around the house, pool and deck area!! Just simply amazing, spacious and very well priced!! We have already planned to book again next year. Bret was Awesome!! He came by after a quick call and showed us how to work everything down to the remotes and explained how to use the kayaks since we had never used them before. And, he also referenced some great spots to hit up to get the best out of our stay!! Please check out Circles Waterfront Restaurant to add to your memories!!! just knowing that he was just one phone call away with great response time was great!! This place was well worth the price and the neighborhood felt really warm and comfy as did the house:) Thanks Bret!!! Look forward to booking again with you soon!!

Property with potential but...

  • 1 of 5

My excitement of this property died the moment I opened the front door. The house was not cleaned properly before our arrival. Stained and dirty carpets, mildewed and soap scummed bathrooms, dirty dishes, hot tub cover filled with bright green bubbling algae were what we noticed upon our arrival. We found ants in the upstairs bathrooms as well as the kitchen. I had some left over pizza in a closed box on the kitchen counter for about an hour and found it covered with ants when I went to get a slice. I was told by management that "this is Florida and that's normal". Really? Found out in the evening that the pool lights didn't work , nor did the outside TV. Overall this house has potential if properly cleaned and maintained by management. I would NOT recommend this property to any friends or family I like.

Owner's Response: Hi Jason, We were very sorry to hear of the issues you experienced at the property! We take these concerns seriously - cleanliness is one of our 4 Core Property Standards. The homeowner was in the process of transitioning to a new cleaner and unfortunately a miscommunication caused the property to not be guest ready prior to your arrival. We sincerely apologize that this occurred. The homeowner also informed us that he has the house professionally sprayed for bugs every month. We appreciate your feedback and hope you will keep us in mind for future travels. Best, The Evolve Team

The house was clean, well stocked & in a great location. The jacuzzi took a while to heat up but once it was warm it was great. Would definately recommend this house & would want to visit again!

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
