"cozy condo nice view"

Comfortable condo. Nice view from the small balcony. I watched fish jumping and birds diving. The only problem is a huge garbage compactor about 30 feet from my bedroom window. It seems that whenever the cleaning people from the office building next door fill up a garbage pail the take it to the compactor. so between 8:30am and 10pm the compactor runs several times an hour. Then at 4:30 am the garbage truck makes an extended stay to empty the compactor

"We loved it!"

This charmingly decorated unit was clean, comfortable, and relaxing. Mike and Lysa were great to work with. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and didn't have any problems.

"Simply amazing! Owner Michael was pure customer service!"

First off I want to say owners Michael and his wife was nothing short of hospitable. I tell you over and beyond customer service. Very accomodating. Told us about cool things to do during our stay. Such really down to Earth great people. Made our vacation that much more perfect. I called them and text them with questions and they were on it and helped us out! Airport is literally 5 minutes away from hotel/condo Their condo/hotel suite room is in the Sailport waterfront suites. Very clean love the fun decor. Has a great mini kitchen with fridge, sink, full stove/oven, microwave and dishwasher. Stocked with plates, silverware, pots and pans etc.... loved our balcony with two stools with tall table. We ate out there during the sunset. Theres free WIFI. Bed was super comfy with TV. We called Uber service to pick us up take us to walmart (about 10 minutes away drive) to grocery shop and to bring us back. To get a your first free ride for Uber use code: angeld274ue Great clean pool. Towels are in the pool area for you with pop/soda machine and bathroom. Pool goes to 7 feet. Awesome deck area looking off into the water. We watch boaters and Jet skiiers plus some fishing boats. On the other side there is an area with sand and rocks (no way to get into the water but full water ocean view everywhere). Plenty of chairs and lounge chairs to get your sun bathing on. Volley ball area. Pictures shown are exactly how this place looks! Walking distance (about 5 min walk) you can get to Pelican resturant or you can walk (about 10-15 min walk) to Hulk Hogan beach restaurant to eat, also right there is volley ball courts, shoot pool, jet skiing is right next to it ($50 per 1/2 hour per jet ski, sooooo much fun we jet skiied). Watch sports on TV at the bar and hear live band. Lots of sitting area. If you walk down further you can get to a nice public beach (was a lot of people). **** Please note: There is a complimentary shuttle to the airport for Sailport Waterfront suites guest. Comes the top of every hour from 7am to 10/11 pm. For guest that are not booked directly with them its $10 for the shuttle. Again we used Uber to get us to the airport which was $6 I tried to get everything in I could remember. Feel free to contact me with questions I will try my best to answer.

"Awesome view!!!!

Would absolutely recommend! great view!! Quiet, lots of amenities, great location!!!! Met great people, many great restaurants close, shuttle is a plus!! Very friendly staff:)

"Excellent location and the views were to die for!"

I enjoyed staying at this property. The location was excellent for my needs- I wanted to have a view of the water but did not want to stay at the beach with spring breakers. I was close to International Plaza and the airport. It was great to be close to all the things I wanted to see/do but still be close to the water!

"Beautiful Sunsets"

The location was perfect. Within 3 miles from the airport. Great access to everything. Easy and convenient parking. We watched the sunset every night from our deck. Thank you so much, Michael. We had a great stay and would definitely stay in this little piece of heaven again.

"Guilt free relaxation."

Loved it! The location and view were fantastic. I usually feel guilty about not getting out to do things, but we spent much of our time catching up with old friends because my husband is from Tampa and it was great to have a place we could entertain so easily.

"Perfect weekend getaway"

What an amazing stay! Mike could not have been nicer. We booked our trip super last minute (the day of) and they were more than accommodating. We took our son, his two friends and my mother to Tampa for a quick birthday weekend to Busch Gardens. The house had more than enough room for all six of us to sleep and stay comfortably. I wish I could have spent more time at the house just so I could admire more the quirky and fun furnishings and art. The dock in the back yard was super fun and would love to go back and spend some time fishing for the "alligator gar" Mike told us about. Everything was clean and well appointed. It was definitely a home away from home. We will be using Mike and Lysa for all of our future trips to Tampa!

Quirky, comfortable"

The owners were friendly, flexible and accommodating. The facilities were as advertised, very adequate for family needs. The views of the river were gorgeous both day and night. We felt safe in the neighborhood and in the home, and malls, grocery and downtown were short rides away. Cabs were easy enough to get, though there was a bit of a wait at times.

"Great stay in sleepy pocket neighborhood in the heart of Tampa"

We enjoyed our stay. The home came stocked with everything we needed. Stores were nearby for food and toiletries. View of the Hillsborough River was beautiful. We were able to bring our pet, which was great! We'd definitely stay here again and would recommend to others.

"Beautiful Location!"

This place is a real find! We stayed in the cottage, and loved it. It's just as the photos show - a little funky, and right on the river. We were treated to a pair of Manatees frolicking in the river one morning, and a wide array of birds every day. The cottage is very comfortable. The bed is comfy, and the bathroom quite expansive! Don't expect to make gourmet meals here - the kitchen supplies are OK, but not great. We didn't mind because we were there to explore not cook! Only downside - there is no Wi Fi in the cottage - the signal is just too weak. So we found internet cafes and got our on-line needs met that way. We will definitely return and plan to say longer the next time.

Relax on the Water

What a Cute, Beautiful & Lovely unit! Mike & Leza are very accommodating. We wish we could have stayed longer!! Excellent location for us to go to dinner, beaches, Airport & Stadium. Upon our return to Tampa, my husband & I will look for Mike & Leza to rent and experience even their other properties.

Never Been Disappointed

I have been traveling back and forth to Florida for the last year and a half and have used Mockingbird Staycation Rentals each time. They make you feel so comfortable and at ease. I have recommended them to family and friends and have never had a complaint. Only raves. They are the best. I especially loved the view of the ocean. Mike and Lysa are always very helpful and prompt.


The Water View is Wonderful

Great location.Easy access to beaches, airport and restaurants. Owners are very accommodating. But most impressive are the beautiful sunsets over the bay. We can't wait to go back!

A Relaxing Stay

Essentially we picked this place rather than a hotel because we need to self cater because of my wife's allergies. The self catering facilities were very limited indeed. Having said that the standard of decor was excellent, the views fabulous and Michael (owner) was very helpful. There was no hairdryer, sharp knives, pots..... Michael got us a knife and a bottle opener.... If the self catering element is not an issue then I would recommend this place otherwise choose somewhere with better cooking facilities. Wifi is poor because the place it at the end of the garden and the router is in the main house.
