About Gary

We are a semi retired couple who live in our Florida home part time. We still own an additional home in a cold state. Brrrrrrr we just love Floridas Nature Coast and our Home here. We Hope You enjoy it. We have worked very hard for you to be able to enjoy your vacation here in our home.

Gary purchased this house in 2014

Why Gary chose Tampa Bay

We searched Florida and the southeast beginning five years ago for a nice location and property. Spring Hill affords us to have everything we were looking for in a gorgeous home in a beautiful warm sub tropic climate.

What makes this house unique

This a wonderful home with everything we were looking for. It is very private and feels very secluded. The property is close to many services and shopping. We love its proximity to Tampa and the Gulf. Close enough to all the Disney parks if that is what you want but far enough away not to deal with it if you do not desire to.

A Tropical Experience for sure ! Just what I needed!

  • 5 of 5

Loved arriving at this cute as can be get away vacation home. I felt comfortable as soon as I arrived at the welcoming front door. The cool Florida colors everywhere made such a nice first impression. Though I spent most of my time poolside on the lanai, as I had left the north at the begging of a blizzard, I could tell that all of the house was newly redone and decorated. The kitchen and baths contained everything I could have needed in the way of tools and utensils. The bed was most comfortable and I could wake in the morn and walk right out to the lanai from the slider . Enjoyed morning coffee out there every morning. Cocktails nightly at the very beautiful entertaining Tiki Bar was such fun and a definite tropical experience. The furnishings throughout the home made for very comfortable evenings. Did I mention super clean throughout including the lovely landscaped yard and pool. The Gulf coast was very inviting as I enjoyed canoeing, walking and relaxing in the sun on beautiful beaches. I was able to enjoy several restaurants along the shore as well as in the city. All was within a short drive and even got to do some souvenir shopping. The area seemed to gave just about everything anyone would need or want. Something for everyone in this lovely area and I can't wait to return next April. Thank you for allowing me to be your guest Gary and Patty.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful comments. It certainly is our pleasure to have guests such as youreslf. We are very happy that you enjoyed the pool and the enclosed lanai. It is wonderful that you took the time to enjoy the many restaurants and shops that the area has to enjoy. Floating the Weeki Wachee is certainly always a favorite for our guests. An experience that no one will soon forget especially if you are fortunate enough to see a Manatee as you quietly drift along through the tropical jungle. Look forward to seeing you again next year. April will be here before you know it.

Cozy place to stay, feels like home.

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived we were greeted by the owners. They were very friendly and answered all of our questions. The house had everything we needed. We enjoyed grilling, sitting by the pool, and having a drink at the tiki bar. There are two nice bedrooms, the third is more like a sitting room, good for children to sleep in. We had a wonderful time and wouldn't hesitate going back again!

My husband and I rented the house in Springhill Fl from Gary Crosby and his wife. He was very nice. We were texting

almost everyday. He wanted to make sure that we were alright. We enjoy our vacation. Gary has a beautiful house. We

intend to rent from them again next time we go back to Florida..

Gary and his wife kept in contact with us to make sure that we enjoy our stay

and we text almost everyday. We are very satisfied of our stay and when we

go back to Florida we intend to rent the house again. Thank you

Wonderful, extremely clean, great communication from owners

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our 5.5 week stay in the summer of 2016. We have family in the Carrollwood area of Tampa, but any VRBO near there was out of our budget. This home was within our budget and accommodated our large family. A backyard, caged pool was a must-have. This house was newly renovated and exceptionally clean. The master bed was a king, and it was very comfy. We used the Florida room pull out sofa to sleep our two middle schoolers and the other bedroom to sleep our daughter and 4 year old son. We all felt we had plenty of room. There were NO bugs inside the home whatsoever, and believe me I was terrified of staying in a house with roaches. Our only hiccup was when the fridge went out, but the owner was immediately responsive and replaced the fridge in a timely manner. Our kids are all begging to return to "our Florida house." We would absolutely be in touch with Gary for a future stay.

We were visiting relatives in the area and the adult kids decided they were going to join us, so we needed a 3 bedroom. We were pleasantly surprised with the cleanliness and the organizational information available to make our stay comfortable. My favorite part of the house was the pool and tiki bar. Loved having my morning coffee by the pool, swimming and enjoying the tiki bar and ambience of the lanai with family. Quite a little jewel in Spring Hill!

There was some coffee to start us off, dish soap, paper towels, paper plates, toilet paper, etc. You dont need to run out grocery shopping upon arrival unless you want to cook something in the lovely kitchen or on the BBQ grill.

Plenty of space for everyone! Our local family members were very impressed with the house and pool.

Anything you need you can find nearby.

I would definitely stay here again!

Thank you Gary and Patty for sharing your home!
