Brandon cottage description

Private, immaculate poolside cottage on 3.5-acre estate shaded by grandfather oaks, minutes from FishHawk. Walk to Starbucks or drive 15 minutes to golf, tennis, horseback riding, canoe rentals, hiking trails, state parks, wildlife preserves and some of the best mountain bike trails in the state. Country Retreat is an oasis of tranquility central to all that Florida has to offer. Thirty minutes from antique districts, outlet malls, Plant City, downtown Tampa and The Florida Aquarium. 45 minutes to Busch Gardens, less than an hour from the beaches, 75 minutes from Disney and two hours from the Space Coast and Cape Canaveral. An ideal location to explore Central Florida from coast to coast and an inviting, secluded retreat at the end of the day. Wildlife abounds as horses graze in the adjacent pasture. A unique experience.

Cottage is charmingly furnished and fully equipped, including clothes washer and dryer, hi-speed Internet and satellite TV.

Guest comments: 'We wanted to thank you guys for making our stay so enjoyable. You gave us shopping tips, places of interest to visit and fresh fruit. The orange juice from the store isn't nearly as good as fresh squeezed. Sometimes it's the simple things in life that makes all the difference. Best Wishes.
