U3238 Florida at its Finest! Tampa Bay Hidden gem Resort-style Community!

Delightful beach vacation home with a spa tub
This is a Caribbean-Style Family and Pet Friendly Community full of private amenities and activities for our guests! Centrally located in Tampa Bay and near many award winning beaches! We allow Instant Bookings and our guests can easily check in using our self check in process. No need to meet anyone. Our homes are all professionally cleaned after every check out, you can feel comfortable in a clean environment.

Enjoy the Mangrove Canal view from your balconies! Look for manatees and dolphins! They love to make appearances. Walk down to the Private Beach and catch a peaceful nap! (5-7 minute walk within the community and free parking if you choose to drive). Take a dive or layout by our outdoor pool with canal views as boats cruise by. Make sure to wave! Order a poolside drink from Hooks Bar & Grille. Want a more calm poolside experience, walk a few steps to another pool option that is fenced in and quieter.

Feeling hungry? You have options! Hooks Bar & Grille offers a full lunch and dinner menu with indoor and outdoor seating. String light patio seating with stunning waterway views. Don't want to miss the Sunset? Walk down to the Tiki Bar and Sunset Grille! Another great restaurant option with a full bar and Caribbean-American Cuisine. Want a memorable selfie? Walk down to the Pier to catch an amazing sunset with incredible skyline views of Tampa Bay! Kick off your shoes and walk down our cozy beach, private and family friendly. Have a furry friend? Head to the public side of the beach were your pet is allowed on a leash! They can join you!

Not ready for bed yet? Stay for live music! String lights come on and the live entertainment begins. Enjoy the sound of an acoustic guitar, sing along to popular tunes while feeling the breeze of the ocean hit your face.

Tomorrow is a new day, what else can you do? Endless options! Go fishing, kayak or paddle board! Take a guided boat tour or join a fishing tour. Rent a golf cart and explore the community. Want to visit the small islands? Rent a jet ski and take a ride to the privately owned but open to public, Beer Can Island! It has a floating Tiki Bar! Need a workout? Head down to the basketball courts! Have little ones? Plan a picnic in our outdoor picnic area that is located by the Playground! Let the kids play as you grill and enjoy the ocean view!

Want to explore outside of the community? Where should we begin?! For family fun, we recommend going to Busch Gardens, Zoo Tampa at Lowry Park, Children's Museum, Top Golf and Dave and Busters! Want to explore our Tampa Bay beaches? Pack your car, load the beach gear and head to Sarasota beaches, Bradenton beaches, Saint Pete Beach or Clearwater Beach! It's worth the drive, plan to stay the whole day! There is so much to do! Then come back to our peaceful community and enjoy the quiet, traffic free life at the end of the day.

Want to enjoy Tampa Bay but also visit Disney? Make the drive! It's worth it! Our homes are large and cozy for families, hard to find a deal like this near Disney. Many families book here and drive to Orlando. Here is a secret, Orlando doesn't have the nice beaches we have :) Stay here and drive to Disney for the day! That is the best way to get the best of both worlds! Tropical beach days and Mickey Mouse ears! After all, you already are in Florida! Make the best of it!

Special occasion? Anniversary, Honeymoon, Graduation, Birthday, Family Reunion? Ask me for ideas, I'd love to help you with your plans!

Property conditions & facilities

4/5 Good

New Years trip
This property has a great location, close to beach and walking distance to two restaurants. Unit has a great layout for multiple couples or families. We were a little disappointed by the cleanliness of the unit, carpet has many stains, ceiling fans dusty, windows had been wiped but smudged. Also time to update the linens and towels. Setting these things aside, I would still recommend this location and unit to others.

1/5 Terrible

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
the house full of cockroaches in the rooms, the dirty facilities around, the dirty pool around it and the beach is disgusting, the photos do not show what it really is. and finally, they charged me more Money

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful quiet neighborhood!
Loved the property. Spacious bedrooms and bathrooms with separate balconies offered privacy for each of our separate family units. Restaurants on the resort were pretty good. Large pool had a view of the bay and we watched dolphins each afternoon. loved that!
