No. ESCAPE Tampa Bay is exclusively for ESCAPE units that are specifically built for lots at ESCAPE Tampa Bay.




Are people of any age welcome?


Yes. Families, couples, seniors or singles are welcome. All owners and renters must be at least 18 years of age.




What about hurricanes?


On November 11, 2020 hurricane ETA made almost a direct hit on the Tampa area...damage to the Village was zero, other than a tipped over plant on a deck. It should be noted that the Tampa Bay area is one of the least hurricane prone areas in Florida. The last major hurricane to hit the area was 100 years ago. In addition, the units in the Village are not like typical RVs...they are built like a house plus they are strapped down. While this does not preclude damage from a hurricane, it does make it less likely.




If I own a unit, can I rent it out?


Yes, as long as the rental period is more than 6 months. We can help with finding a renter.




Can I buy an ESCAPE unit to be delivered elsewhere?


Yes! Please see escapetraveler.net
