About Jacquie Lucky

Hello and welcome!

We're proud hosts and take our guests stay very seriously, it's alot of hard work and we feel responsible to have a beautiful and clean place that I'm proud of. We understand that one of the most important parts of having a wonderful vacation is the place you stay, and a comfortable bed and pillow. We have high standards of respect and common courtesy for myself and others, and expect to be treated the same in return.

I've traveled since I was an infant with my parents, so I intuitively understand the ins and outs of traveling. I have traveled all over the world and love to explore different adventures as much as I can with my family. So I really enjoy getting to know our International guests and where they're from.

Whether we're booking a place to stay with another host or hosting a guest, we look forward to speaking and meeting you. Happy travels!

Jacquie Lucky purchased this house in 2012

Why Jacquie Lucky chose Florida

We love this house and area! Our neighbors are the best and we are a very tight knit community who cares about each other. The Westchase area is beautiful and has all the amenities anyone could possibly need and/or want within a short distance. Great shopping, restaurants, and sight-seeing nearby.

What makes this house unique

Love the central location - near everything we need and want! Plus, really super safe and quiet location with awesome neighbors. We just renovated the whole house and are very proud of how the house looks and, more importantly, feels. The whole house is very comfortable and peaceful, plus it's a great location within the Tampa area. We feel my father couldn't have picked a better place to set down roots. We look forward to meeting you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The house was as advertised. It was perfect for our group since it would have cost about the same for 2 decent hotel rooms and why not have a common living area and no thin walls to deal with. Jacquie was quick to reply to any texts. It was an enjoyable stay."

Very clean; nicely decorated; safe and well maintained neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Nice neighborhood. Close to everything. Easy access to malls, parks, and downtown Tampa. Safe neighborhood. Was able to take my regular evening walks in the area. I was able to easily communicate with hostess. Last minute vacation and hostess was quite accommodating.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Great! Clean, organized, all you need is provided.

Jackie was very helpful, answered all our questions and was very responsive to solve a small issue that came up at first. So don't be alarmed by negative comments. Not everyone is used to being organized and to clean up after themselves. The place is very nicely decorated, new appliances and it was just as seen in the pictures. My girls loved the Roku. Great location close to everything!!!! Could not have asked for more.

If you are coming to Tampa this is a great option to stay.

Perfect location, well equipped, very accommodating

  • 5 of 5

We found this rental at the very last minute and with just a day or so to secure a place to stay for a business trip. The owners were more than helpful and worked with us on with the short notice. The house was in a great location close to shopping and restaurants. Everything needed to make the stay comfortable was already in place. Lots of space, clean, quiet...really just perfect! Thanks for everything!

An excellent central location close to Westfield Mall, stadiums, Busch Gardens, Lowry Zoo, with short drive to west coast beaches and an hour's easy highway drive to Orlando. Close by, Ben T. Davis beach is approximately a fifteen minute drive; Rocky Point Gulf Course just ten minutes away. Easy access to the Veterans’ Expressway insures a quick commute to downtown Tampa, the airport and beaches.

Places to go are all within a short 10-15 minute walk or a 5-10 minute drive: Westfield Mall, restaurants, Starbucks, movie theaters, Westchase Village, Busch Gardens, the race track, beaches, bike paths, parks, tennis, bike trails, basketball, river access, canoeing and several golf courses are all nearby.

We are about 30-45 minutes from world class Clearwater area beaches and 1-1 1/2 hrs. from Disney World, Seaworld, Legoland, Universal Studios & Harry Potter, MGM, etc. The Tampa/St Petersburg area offers fine and casual dining, Busch Gardens, major league sports including baseball spring training (New York Yankees and others), NFL (Bucaneers) , NHL (Lightning) , MLB (Rays), a major performing arts center, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, new Salvidor Dali Museum, a major university (University of South Florida), and extensive shopping. Within a short drive are Tarpon Springs, Sarasota and Lakeland. There are numerous city and state parks within an easy drive. Nearby is excellent deep sea, surf, and fresh water fishing. Several cruise lines depart from Tampa.

Tampa, Florida, is a vacationer's paradise. But it's not just the weather that tourists enjoy. The year-round attractions mean that a good time is always guaranteed.

While Tampa's three public beaches may get most of the attention, there's plenty to do indoors. The Museum of Science and Industry lets you brave simulated hurricane winds, while the Tampa Bay History Center brings to life some of the oldest recorded history in the U.S. Arts aficionados will enjoy the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts and University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum.

Golf and fishing are popular activities, and there are several courses within the city and chartered boats are easy to find. Those who prefer spectator sports can cheer on the city's professional teams, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tampa Bay Lightning, and Tampa Bay Storm. The Tampa Bay Rays play in nearby St. Petersburg.

Animal lovers can get wild at Busch Gardens' Serengeti Safari or watch tigers and cougars being fed at Big Cat Rescue. The Florida Aquarium features the state's natural habitats and fauna, including wetlands alligators, while the Lowry Park Zoo allows visitors to pet and feed rhinoceroses.

For a different kind of hunt, visit WestShore Plaza and International Plaza for high-end shopping or stroll Old Hyde Park Village, an open-air mall with designer boutiques and local shops. Ybor City, Tampa's historic Latin Quarter, features specialty goods and art galleries and is the center of Tampa nightlife.

Tampa International Airport serves about 18 million passengers each year, so finding flights to Tampa should be easy.

More detailed information about Tampa and its attractions can be found here:

(website hidden)

The annual Outback Bowl football game in January and the Gasparilla Pirate Fest in February. Other winter festivals also attract crowds, including the Florida State Fair in February, the Florida Strawberry Festival in late February, and the Apollo Beach Manatee Arts Festival in March. In October, thousands dressed in their finest Halloween costumes visit Ybor (Eee-bore) City to celebrate Guavaween.

Spotlight on Westchase:

We turned to locals for their opinions on “the most family-friendly areas of Tampa” when we first came to Tampa. Westchase, the northwesterly part of Tampa, came up high on most everyone’s list. We didn’t need much more than one drive down Westchase’s picturesque downtown area to get some context on all the rave reviews. Westchase has a type of Pleasantville feel — main streets lined with flowering crepe myrtles, moms greeting each other as they pass strollers on neatly maintained sidewalks, joggers getting in their practice runs for that next half-marathon, and children kicking soccer balls with the neighborhood kids across center greens. It’s the type of place where neighbors know each other. The sense of community here is nearly reminiscent of a time before (website hidden) and (website hidden).

Don’t mistake Westchase for another pretty, yet boring space swallowed up by suburbia’s sprawl. Thanks to a downtown area populated with boutiques, bistros, and high-end spas, Westchase also has a chic, trendy side that’s rare and refreshing for a place without high rises. Top-rated schools, easy access to the City’s downtown area via major roadways, and routinely scheduled family events all within a Tampa zip code add to Westchase’s appeal. Whether you’re stopping by for a bit of shopping or a bite to eat, or else looking for a place to call home, West
