    Adequate - not the cleanest but great communication and easy check in/out!

    Reviewed by: Christie P. on


    The refrigerator wasn?t clean and it didn?t seem like the bathtubs / showers had been scrubbed thoroughly in awhile. There was a general smell of urine in the unit and the tile floors felt slimy. It wasn?t filthy it just wasn?t clean like I had hoped. There were ants in the kitchen sink. The coffee table was falling apart. The exhaust fan in the master didn?t work and the tub barely drained. The location wasn?t terrible (not the nicest neighborhood ever) but it was convenient to everything for sure. Property manager was helpful and easy to talk with. She and the convenience of the location were the best part. It served its purpose and it was great to have laundry on site and a kitchen with basics, but I doubt we?d stay there again since cleanliness is usually my top priority in any place I stay.

    Property was clean and as advertised. Management were very friendly and attentive. Location to Busch Gardens and Adventure Island were ideal, approximately 4 miles. Lots of restaurants around also. Only complaint was an issue with the master bathroom shower faucet, tough to get consistent hot water but every other faucet worked fine. Not enough of an issue to put a damper on the weekend. Also never notified management but I think they would have addressed.

    I had a terrible experience booking through evolve, tried contacting them on several occasions they took days to respond to me. When I reach destination the instructions for location where wrong it took me over an hour to find the place and then the instructions on how to check-in were completely wrong, called three different people to get into the unit. Once getting into the unit the bathrooms were not clean and the utensil that they said that they had in the kitchen we're not there we had to go out and buy our own. I could have booked a much bigger and nicer place for less money and evolve was the worst company I've ever dealt with and I will never booked with evolve again.

    Excellent place to stay in

    The apartment was clean, easily accessible, well maintained. It is close to USF, Busch Gardens, and some of the major highways. Check-in and check-out was a breeze. And the parking spot is 3 feet from the front door! This is a big plus when having to carry your kids after falling asleep in the car after a day in one of the FL parks and when carrying groceries. Will definitely look at this place again whenever I go back to Tampa.

    Good, but misleading

    Reviewed by: Charles R. on


    The property is nice, but its location is not. I understand VRBO to be a vacation rental site offering vacation properties for short and longer term rentals. The Tampa property could not and should not be termed a vacation property. It sits in the middle of a commercial part of North East Tampa in a very basic condominium development, now some 30 years old.

    The nearest beach is an hour drive away and there are no attractions close at hand. Basically it is sited as a small dormitory supporting the working staff of South Florida University.

    The property is furnished adequately, although plates and cutlery are in short supply, and the TV package is very limited in content. The interior is a little shabby with a very poor standard of recent decoration. Understand what you are getting before you book.

    On the upside, the people running the property are on site and are delightful. Very helpful and always available (during working hours). Would we book it again? No, as stated before, it is adequate but not in the right place to qualify as a vacation rental unless you had a real reason to be in Commercial Tampa.

    Manager's Response:
    Charles, thank you for your review. This homeowner has asked us to pass along the following response:

    "You are correct in that we listed one of our apartment units for short term rental as it is next door to the hospital. Originally intended as a convenience for traveling nurses and doctors, we have been touched by many of the emotional stories expressing gratitude from families of cancer victims. Responding to this unmet need, we will continue to make these units available and affordable to these families. Incredibly, we have also been surprised by many of our customers who also rented primarily for family vacations. Our central location is certainly readily apparent to any prospective tenant but we will make a renewed effort to disclose more thoroughly. It is, of course, frustrating to invest thousands of dollars renovating an apartment but we will again review for any opportunities to improve. Additional plates and cutlery have already been added. Our television package is limited as we find most guests do not spend their vacation watching TV."

    Best, the Evolve Team

    Comfortable accomadations, central location and super hosts!

    Check-in was easy, parking directly in front of the unit you stayed in. Make sure you get a pass or a permit for parking because a local tow company cruises parking lots at night looking for violations, our rental car was towed on the first night, despite a previous agreement between the tow company and our hosts. Our hosts were super about helping us get it returned right away at no cost to us, but, obviously that would be best to avoid. There are plenty of restaurants close by. There is a Publix grocery about 2 miles away near the University of South Florida campus. The great thing about that store is it is catered to the college crowd and has smaller portions and packages of items that was great for a one-week stay. The apartment was centrally located, easy drive to downtown Tampa and Orlando was only an hour away. Will definitely stay here again!

    Property was very clean and comfortable. Location was good too. Only suggested improvements are better communication on check in/check out and better lighting. Lighting was very dim in the evening. It wasn't anything that interfered with our enjoyment of our trip.

    We really enjoyed staying in this apartment. The a/c worked great. The place is spacious and has great amenities (pool, game room, public hang out area with grill, work out area). The kitchen is stocked so that you don’t have to eat all of your meals out. The apartment is right in front of the office in case you have any issues or need something. The only reason for rating it a 4 is because the check in process was a bit much. It consisted of a several-page contract which also involved taking a copy of my license. They use the same contract they would for a renter in the complex. I see most Airbnb’s have self check in or a simple hand-over of the keys. The check in is pretty late (4pm) and the apartment wasn’t ready. Other than that, the apartment was perfect. We truly enjoyed our stay and loved the place. I did make a few minor suggestions to Tara since she welcomed them because they are new to Airbnb but they are just things that would be nice to have and not anything that would make/break the decision to stay. All in all, I would definitely stay again given the opportunity to return Tampa. Thanks Tara and Daniel for being so nice and helpful.
