If you’re looking for a short or mid-term rental in Tampa Bay, there are a few things you should be aware of to ensure you get a good deal and don’t fall victim to scammers. Let’s explore what to look out for, and how Ready Stays is here for your month-to-month rental needs in Tampa.

Tampa Bay Neighborhoods

Tampa Bay is very neighborhood-specific. What we mean by that is, although you can look at nice photos online of the interiors of places to stay and the amenities nearby, you’ll still be unfamiliar with the surrounding neighborhood until you actually arrive and have a chance to explore.

Our tip is to get the precise address of the potential place to stay and use it to do ‘Street View’ on Google Maps. By doing this, you’ll be able to walk around the area virtually. Be sure to check out the neighborhood’s shops, restaurants, apartment communities, larger homes, and transport links nearby. You’ll quickly be able to tell if the area is well taken care of or not.

At Ready Stays, we only provide rentals in what are considered the safer, more savory neighborhoods. As well as this, the majority of our rentals are in mid-to-luxury apartment communities with gated parking and, in some cases, courtesy patrol officers.

Who’s Offering the Rental?

Who are they? Is it a company, or privately owned? This is important, because private owners can run B&Bs like guest houses, but don’t have to stick to the same rules and regulations as companies. They’re also less likely to have proper commercial liability insurance coverage, or even the appropriate coverage to manage a property as a short-term rental. They almost certainly won’t have set standards, checklists and procedures in place to ensure a safe, comfortable stay for guests.

Between guests, Ready Stays follows a very strict, consistent, white-glove cleaning protocol, which is followed by a 153-point inspection checklist to make sure every sheet, every spoon, every appliance and every detail in our rental apartments is in excellent working order.

If a company is providing the rental, do they have an office located in Tampa Bay? Very often they don’t, and this can mean they don’t have a clear, up-to-date idea of what the city is actually like, and which neighborhoods are best to live in. The lack of a local office will also mean the company won’t be able to address any service issues quickly.

Always Read the Reviews

It’s always a good idea to check out reviews of companies online. Do they have a business page? Are reviews from real-life renters? It’s very easy for companies to fake reviews if they’re hosted solely on their own website, so be sure to check out reviews on third-party sites like TrustPilot and Google Reviews. One thing’s for sure, a complete lack of reviews is a huge red flag!

At Ready Stays, we’ll periodically get calls from renters who have stayed in an apartment offered by a private owner, through Airbnb, or through a company that doesn’t have a local presence, and very often the place looks nothing like the photos they were provided with. In fact, sometimes the photos aren’t even real. We’ve helped dozens of people get out of bad situations and into one of our fantastic rentals, quickly and without fuss, and we are proud and more than happy to do so.

If images of rentals are of low quality, this could be a sign they’ve been taken from a completely unrelated listing and are just being used to make the listing seem more attractive. If you suspect something may be ‘off’ about the listing, you can always utilize Reverse Image Search to see if the images have come from elsewhere online. You can do this by saving the image to your computer, going to Google Images, and clicking on the little camera within the search bar.

We are a family of three and we just finished a wonderful 8 month stay in a Ready Stays furnished apartment in Brookview (Citrus Park)To give a little background - we moved in August 2023 from India (relocated for work) and went straight from the airport to the apartment that we had leased remotely.It was one of the best decisions we made to start our stay in Tampa in a Ready Stays furnished apartment. From the ease of working with Tyler to set up the lease - to the thoughtful touches like leaving essential cleaning supplies so that we would not have any issues in our first days here while we stocked up - everything about the experience was exceptional. I would HIGHLY recommend that folks moving into Tampa especially from overseas consider a Ready Stays furnished apartment to get started.Throughout our stay all service requests were attended to in a timely manner and the customer service was always first class.Thank you Ready Stays for ensuring that our stay in Tampa got off to such a wonderful start.

I highly recommend Ready Stays. Tyler Graves who helped us secure the apartment at Grady Square was extremely helpful and professional. The Grady Square Apartments are a fantastic complex: We had three people working in a 3 bedroom apartment and there was more than enough space. The terraces was an unexpeted bonus.Another bonus was the Conference Room and business center that included a printer, copier and scanner. Other amenities the building offered were fantastic: pool and hot tub, a very nice gym and free coffee. The staff took phenomenal care of the building, cleaning it thoroughly daily.I look forward to returning in the future.

I had the opportunity to stay at one of Ready Stays furnished apartments this summer for my internship. I was impressed from the moment I started speaking with the team on relocating to Tampa, everyone was so helpful in guiding me in the right direction to find me the perfect location and place to stay. I did not visit Tampa or the complex prior to moving there, and the team eased all my concerns.The complex I was able to stay in had every amenity possible, and the Ready Stays team made sure to find me a place I was looking for that offered everything I needed/wanted. The check-in and out process was effortless and organized. Maintenance request were handled timely, and the Ready Stays team followed-up on any quest.Overall, if you are looking for short-term furnished housing in the Tampa area please make sure to contact Ready Stays!

I needed a place to live short - term and furnished and Ready Stays was there like champs. Other corporate-type housing was expensive and terms weren't as flexible. I was able to get a fully furnished, all utilities covered apartment and easy and friendly people to deal with. I would recommend and stay again for sure.

Stayed 3 mo at Novus Westshore. Tyler and Amber were great. Very responsive. Fixed the invoices to meet specs demanded by my employer. Reimbursed me quickly when my car was towed by accident. Quick to provide passwords when streaming apps locked. Also sent maintenance next day to provide pest traps out when I saw a roach. Didn't spot another bug the rest of my stay. Property was clean nice furnishings. 5min from Airport, International Mall. Tons of dining options 10 min or less. If you bicycle, 10 min ride to Cypress Point, where you can hop on Causeway Trail.
