Hi, looking to rent a villa on the gulf coast from late September into mid October - a 3 week rental all in.

Dates not set yet, but just beginning to look at owners sites and get a feel for what is available. There is a huge diversity of properties and different locations so a bit confused as to where to go.

Was advised to ask on this forum to help with selecting the right area - we're considering anywhere from Spring Hill, through Tampa / St Pete's area down as far as Sarasota.

Just to give you an idea of our requirements, the properties we're looking at would need to have the following:

3 or 4 bedroomed villa
South facing private pool with electric (not solar) pool heating
Secluded pool area, not overlooked!!
Internet access ( as I'll need to work some of the time)
TV's in main lounge, as well as in kids bedrooms

As a preference (but not a need) would be a lake or open outlook from pool.

Given this is late notice ( 7 weeks etc ) we'd be willing to pay around 400 week inc of taxes, pool heat, cleaning etc so any suggestions as to available villa's or best rental area's would be gratefully received.

PS also posted on Tampa area forum

here is a site you may want to check out TMI Vacations we had our house on the rental market before moving in full time. this agency managed it for us and has many other houses that would fit your needs. give a call nice people.

a west facing pool is what would be considered a premium. most if not all houses have internet. cleaning is generally provided at the end of stay. i am sure that if requested more frequent cleaning can be arranged.
