    Westchase

    Suburb of Tampa, FL,

    46 Niche users give it an average review of 4.2 stars.

    Featured Review: Current Resident says Beautiful community to live in. I’m a native Tampan, and this is my second time living here, and hopefully the last time I will ever move. The homes are kept up nicely, there are shops, restaurants,...I live here, and NOT South Tampa bcs if you’ve ever been through a hurricane you do NOT want to be anywhere in any part of south Tampa. The streets flood as soon as it rains A few areas of WestChase are on the flood border as these are close to the bay where you can fish, canoe, or just relax (in Oldsmar) - oldsmar borders WestChase.
