It is 10 minutes to just about any place by car and 20 minutes to the Tampa International Airport!

We had a great stay at "The Love Shack", which is located in a GREAT location in St Pete. The RV is in really good condition and was very clean. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is spacious (for an RV) and we enjoyed our private and funky backyard, which hosted lots of seating and a fire pit! We would definitely stay here again.

Upon arriving, the property in which the RV is located on is in a beautiful neighborhood and the house is very pretty as well. We loved the location, being so close to fort de Soto! One night we used the grill although it was more of a skillet-type flat has grill. It was so nice to have the ability to have the pets off-leash in the back. The host mentioned that they are Bee keepers, they pointed them out but we didn’t really see any flying around at all! The RV had hot water, great air conditioner, although low water pressure. The second and last night we were there unfortunately we did have a little issue. I was awoken by a cockroach at around 4am crawling on my hair. At that point we couldn’t go back to sleep so we ended up packing up and leaving back to Orlando at 4:30am. I was hesitant to leave this review, because overall we did love the RV, and cockroaches can easily be taken care of.

The second cockroach we saw while we were packing, the biggest cockroaches I’ve ever seen.

Thank you for you stay with us. Your dogs are beautiful. We do spray regularly and are very sorry you experienced that. The rain and open doors will draw them out. I can not stand them either. Thank you so Much for letting us know. Be blessed.

We wanted the best of both worlds, camping experience while being close to beaches and downtown. The Love Shack gave us exactly that. Thank you.
