Me, my husband and a friend stayed for 6 days while in Tampa for a conference. Our check-in agent was Adeean. He was very polite and knowledgeable. The property looks rcatly like in the pictures. It smelled so clean and fresh when we walked in that I couldn't help for feel at home. I would not only recommend this property to friends and family, I would stay here again.
We stayed here in December of 2015 and arrived Christmas Eve night. Even so Cara (the lady who checked us in) was so sweet and understanding due to us being later than the check in time and even later than the estimated time we gave them. They accommodated us because we were driving from MI to FL with a 1 yr old so we weren't sure of an exact time. The place is as exactly as the pictures show. It's very comfortable, inviting, and clean. It's not gated (I don't like feeling like I'm staying in a prison anyway) but we felt very safe and it was very quiet. Many of the actual tenants that lived there were friendly and greeted us as we passed by. It's close to a lot of shopping and restaurants. The view from the lanai is so nice. It was nice waking up in the morning and winding down in the evening with a view of the lake. Also, there were no bug problems. We didn't see a single one. I don't know if the time of year made a difference but we didn't come across any in the unit. The beds are very comfortable as well.
The only downside is some of the pots and pans looked like they needed to be replaced as well as the knives in the knife block on the counter. I'm pretty picky about that stuff though. It's certainly not a deal breaker but if you're like me and you're driving in just pack a couple of pots, a pan, and one good knife like I did. We could've used more towels but we didn't ask. They are so nice though that I'm sure they would've taken care of us if we did. Just ask!
On our last day I stopped to see if I could meet Brenda (she handled the payments and got us our details and receipts) she was there and she gave me a hug. Very sweet woman, down to earth and professional. I also saw Cara again she waved hello and the owner Janice Powell. She thanked us for staying and I said goodbye to them and we were on our way. We will definitely be using them again the next time we stay in Brandon or Tampa. This was our first time doing a vacation rental so we were a bit nervous but everything went well with no problems.
P.S. I also emailed questions and got very quick responses from Cody Powell (other owner). He was very pleasant to deal with as well.
