Welcome to Tampa Bay

From coast to coast, Florida unfolds in a spectacle of white beaches, rolling hills, citrus groves, and incredible fresh water springs. Enjoy a variety of year-round activities—fishing, boating, and hunting, to name a few—along with a rich historical heritage dating back to 1513 when Ponce de León first explored Florida.

Not only is the location of our Tampa vacation rentals postcard perfect, we’re centrally located in Tampa near I-275 for easy access to city attractions including museums and restaurants, as well as Central Florida’s most popular spots. Discover what our guests love most about our location and get a glimpse into what’s waiting for you at Erehwon Retreat.
