staff and amenities are great ! public spaces are clean and well kept. free coffee every morning is a plus ! neighbors are friendly as well.


I love it, I just wish rent was cheaper. But aside from the rent, I am really happy with the space, the amenities, and the location. With that, the staff is also incredible. SO yeah absolutely no complaints besides the price.


I moved down from New Jersey in search of an apartment that had a central location and great amenities. I had to look no further than Varela to provide everything I had been looking for. 15 minutes from downtown, 8 minutes from the airport, and roughly 30-40 minutes from some of Florida’s best beaches. Moving to Varela has helped me make the transition seamless and has provided me a great community of friends. I use most of the amenities like the pool, hot and cold tub, sauna, gym, and the barista bar (shout out to Jessi!). The staff here are all super friendly from the front office- Jeremy, Kamilah, Courtney, Quyen, to Diana and her mother who keep the building clean, and Jon, Victor and Freddy who always help with maintenance around the building. If you are looking for community, amenities, and a central location in Tampa, look no further than Varela!


Just renewed the lease for the next coming year.Love staying at Varela Westshore . They have amazing staff and well planned activities. The plus point is the security .

Overall it has been a great experience. The staff is very friendly and service requests are handled in a timely manner. I would highly recommend the Varela!


Great place to live. Just a few minutes from Tampa Airport, Inrernational Mall, Hyde Park Village, Armateur Works and Rampa Downtown. Amenities are great and staff is alwayshelpful.


Varela has been my for several years now. The property is always maintained the right way, as this is not the case with places I have toured or visited before. The staff is friendly and they all have real, proper personalities. I would recommend Varela to anyone who appreciates luxury living as well as the neighborhood it’s located within.

My resident experience has been great, lots of wonderful location, plenty of amenities, and great staff. Mail system is a little quirky due to issues with directions but those are easily remedied.


It has been great. The people are friendly and the Maintenance is fast. I would recommend this appartment to anyone who is looking for a high end place in tampa.


Very nice group of people! Amenities are great! The staff also puts in some nice community events that are always fun when my schedule allows me to attend.
