If you are going to rent have you considered the privatized housing on base? They were taking Members with out dependants for awhile, this way you would have any issues with your dog.

Now I've been thinking even more. I could buy a nice townhome in a gated community as my primary residence when I move down there in July with the low market. Then when I PCS out of there in about 3 years, I can rent it out as an investment. I was looking at Legacy Park, Cordoba Beach Park...anyone have any input; good or bad on these properties? Thanks.
Mike

While i'm not mike, I dont recommend living on base. You get a duplex, which, may be fine for you, but I dont like sharing walls with people, i find most people annoy the hell out of me, so I needed our own house. We rent from a military couple who has PCS'd out - but plan to come back. I do not recommend any places around the base, the area nearby is pretty run down. We live in Brandon (surprisingly, lot of military do). Takes about 20-30 minutes via expressway to get to the base.

Dont forget to check AHRN - its a military only rental website. That's how we found our current house and most times the rentals are cheaper for military or deposits waived, etc.

There are some nice areas north of Interbay and at least one or two blocks in from both sides of Dale Mabry. The big problems are the low-rent complexes along Dale Mabry and down in Port Tampa. My friend's parents are in the military and they have a nice 60s-era three bedroom house on Oklahoma.

A lot of military live in Brandon, as mentioned before, and apparently the drive isn't bad. HARTline has two or three express buses that run from a few developments straight onto the base; there might be a short stop in Downtown Tampa, I don't know. Regardless, these are pretty nice buses and always seem to be full.
