“Awesome Howl-O Scream Weekend!”
Reviewed October 12, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Traveled with a group of 9 adults to Howl-O-Scream event at Busch Gardens. We almost didn't make it due to Hurricane Matthew threatening our side of the East Coast. Sid (owner of the rental) was very patient with us and very understanding with what we were going thru. We had to wait til the last min before we knew we could drive up. His house was much more that what I was expecting. Very roomy and very comfortable beds and sofas. Plenty of room in the backyard to just kick back and lounge. Mins away from Busch Gardens and literally right across the street from Adventure Island. My group had a blast and will definitely be renting again with Sid when the time comes.

Thank you for all your hospitality Sid

“A Beautiful and cozy place to spend your vacation!”

We were looking for a home that was big enough for myself and three of my grown children, their spouses and 2 small grandchildren. We wanted a place that was clean with lots of space o that we weren't always in each other's way. Sidney's vacation home was perfect! A lovely back yard , well tended with lots of places to sit back and even a BBQ. Both the front and back porches were a favourite place to relax with a drink and the area was quiet. We were able to get to Busch Gardens in a few minutes because it was so close! Saved on parking since we only used one car to shuttle back and forth. The home itself had all the extras. Washer and dryer was appreciated and there were lots of bedrooms with comfortable beds. I really enjoyed my stay here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Would love to stay longer to enjoy it only more.

Pictures don't do this home justice. It's a beautiful place with plenty of space. I felt right at home as soon as I entered. Great experience for my friends and I. I would definitely do it again!

“Clean and Well-Appointed Home -perfect for the family!”

I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful and clean home that my family and I walked into! You could really feel how clean it was and there was more than enough space for three adults and one child - it easily could have accommodated more people! Such a comfortable home! The kitchen had all of the right utensils and plates and other necessities, and the bathrooms had extra towels. There was even a washer/dryer available and a large backyard!

The owner of the house arrived and explained the security system and keys and he was extremely professional and nice. We LOVED staying at this house and will absolutely stay here again the next time we are in Tampa!
