About Tom Parker

My name is Tom Parker and my beautiful wife Sandy and I are are raising a ten year old son and watching our 21 year old son spread his wings and fly away from his nest. I was raised in upstate N.Y. in a small town known as Fairport and when my parents retired in 1984 we relocated to Florida. After spending 5 years in the U.S. Navy, I gravitated back to the Sunshine State and have been here ever since. Sandy grew up in Guatemala City, Guatemala and is fluent in Spanish. She is a licensed skin therapist for over 10 years and specializes in many different facial treatments. We are very knowledgeable of the area and can provide you with excellent dinning recommendations and can extend some discounts on some of the surrounding attractions.

Tom Parker purchased this condo in 2015

Why Tom Parker chose Tampa Bay

Location, location, location. This particular unit is close to the pool with views of both the pool and the lake. It is secluded within the complex and is very quiet. The views of the lake are breathtaking and the bird life is magnificent to watch. Centrally located in the Brandon area you are close to everything.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with this unit the moment we saw it. We thought that this would be the perfect get away for any traveler looking to stay in central florida with the ability to make day trips to all the major attractions Florida has to offer. We personally have made many day trips ourselves and can recommend many places to go.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thomas and Sandy are lovely people and were great hosts. They were always readily available to answer all our questions and flexible with our check in time. They also provided a huge basket of goodies such as tea, coffee, snacks and essential toiletries which is a really great touch and came in handy. The loft was gorgeous and homey. It's location in the complex is perfect - just a few feet from the beautiful lake with all the amazing bird life, turtles and alligators. We especially bought a pair of binoculars on the first day and after the second day my husband was inspired to invest in a zoom camera! The gym and salt water swimming pool is right next to the lodge as well. Close by are many restaurants, shops and mall but the peaceful feeling on the enclosed porch while watching the squirrels play is all I needed. I miss it already!

A nice holiday

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Brandon. The owners were very obliging and the condo is quite comfortable. The porch area was used extensively. We were a little disappointed at the lack of a grill and the inability to drink the water. Additional dishes might also be useful. Overall, one could not ask for nicer hosts, though and his recommended dining and touring areas were on target. The condo is centrally located for many attractions. The weather for our stay was magnificent.

Owner's Response: The community gas grill has been mis-used and the gas has been left on and unattended causing this to be a hazard. The association is in the process of replacing with an electric grill. In the meantime, we have and will provide a portable gas grill upon request. The water is drinkable here, some prefer bottled water over the tap water.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This darling house was filled with details that made us feel welcome. The house itself was neatly decorated...extremely clean and comfortable. The owners thought of everything that we could possibly need and left us a welcome basket filled with goodies. We only stayed 3 nights but we would have liked to stay longer. Thank you for making our stay beyond expectations.

Glorious lake front view in an extremely convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

First, let me start off by stating that the owners are absolutely amazing people. They are extremely expedited with their responses and communicate with you at every turn of the process. Tom called me the day after placing the request to get to know me and approved my request immediately, extremely down to earth guy. We arrived around 2230 and he still met us at the rental with a smile on his face. They provided us with a gift basket of small amenities, which was very much appreciated after our flight, afternoon in Orlando and drive to Brandon. Tom was also quite informative regarding nearby locations for activities, shopping and cuisine.

The location itself is about an hour and a half from Orlando, forty-five minutes from Clearwater and has a bunch of local gems around Brandon as well. We used it as a central hub to travel throughout Florida during our stay, which worked out perfectly. It is beautiful in its own right, but the central nature of it to other locations in Florida is a huge bonus for those looking to bounce around the state.

The loft itself was absolutely gorgeous. The pictures do not do this place justice at all. The owners did a spectacular job renovating this place into a real gem to stay at, and for the price it is truly a steal. Anything you could possibly want is here; fitness center, in ground pool, a fully equipped kitchen, two extremely comfortable beds, cabinet/closet/dresser space galore, a spacious living room, in house washer/dryer and two beautiful bathrooms. I probably missed something, but you will want for nothing and with grocery stores only a couple miles a way, you can utilize the kitchen to prepare a meal with ease if you want to stay in.

From a great central location to travel around Florida, to the beautiful lake front view off the sun porch (I recommend drinking your coffee out there, it is a splendid way to start the day) and the owners who clearly poured their heart and soul into your experience at their home - it is EASY to call this place your "home away from home."

Owner's Response: Wow...........Thanks for the kind words Matthew. You guys we're great to host and thanks for leaving the place spotless. Only using 1 shower made it a snap to clean since we do it ourselves. That was a great way of thanking us and showing your respect. Your welcome back anytime. God bless you guys, Tom & Sandy

Very nice property and the owner was fantastic!

We stayed at the home with my parents and the home was nicely renovated and very comfortable. The owner went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely rent this property again.

The Parker Loft is truly THE place to stay while visiting the Tampa area. Upon arrival, Tom met us at the loft and I was immediately impressed with the warmth and cleanliness. The Parkers not only provide a place to stay, but they add things to make your stay a home experience. The loft has ALL the conveniences of home, providing peace and tranquility, but close enough to everything else to get out and have a fun-filled day. The "directory" they provide is very inclusive, filled with wonderful suggestions on where to eat, shop or sightsee! The gift basket is a wonderful addition and provides all the little extras you may have forgotten! I travel extensively and I must say, this location is definitely in my top 5! I would definitely stay here again and again and again!

Thank you Tom and Sandy!
