"My husband and I just returned from our stay at the cottage. This quaint little place is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city life, but close enough to get anywhere you need to go. Kevin is an awesome host, very willing to offer suggestions on what to do in the area as well as ensuring your personal needs are met. The chickens are fun, the cats are friendly, and the cottage is perfect. Simple, comfortable, and clean."

"I was so worried when our original housing plans in Brandon, FL fell through and we used this site to search for a nice place to stay. There were so many listings that were good for families, but this one was PERFECT for a weekend getaway without the kids! Even on late notice, this owner came through with lightening fast communication. The room was reserved in about 20 minutes - all of the charges were clearly explained and we felt secure paying through the site. The condo is so close to the airport, which was great because our plane was so delayed we didn't get there until Midnight. But thanks to the owner's quick and complete directions, we were able to enter the place easily and without waking anyone up using the keyless entry system. The owner was sure to tell us about everything we needed to know - from the parking pass rules to which take-outs delivered. We met so many nice people at the pool and spent almost all our time laying out there, at the beach or at Hogan's which is VERY close by. They have excellent security (in a booth at the entrance) and we felt so safe walking around there after dark. The condo had everything we needed, extra chairs to take to the beach, all the kitchen items we needed to make our food including a blender and some extra pool noodles! They actually though of everything! The linens were clean and appropriate for our stay. We would love to make this an annual getaway. Great communication all the way through!"

"On our arrival date, we were graciously greeted by Rhonda and right off the bat, we knew we made a perfect choice. We felt quite welcomed and appreciated the time she took to discuss the history of the property. The hospitality shown to us by both Rhonda and Gary meant so much. Their knowledge of the area contributed to our visiting many county and state parks, beaches, race track, casino, theaters, shopping malls, etc. Rhonda's passion and knowledge of the family of cranes occupying her property is very contagious! We thoroughly enjoyed watching the new baby crane start his life in Thonotosassa. It was absolutely one of the highlights of our stay. The apartment is immaculate and cozy. It is very comfortable and has everything you will need whether staying 1, 2, 3 months or longer. The queen sized bed is very comfortable, the kitchen is fully stocked and the WIFI service was exceptional. Time to Tampa from this location is about 15 minutes. Highways are all within a few minutes ride (Rt 4, 75, 275) This was our first year as a retired couple enjoying the "snowbird" life and we can say without a doubt that it was a pleasure staying at this location. Should we decide to stay in this part of Florida again in the future, we definitely will let Rhonda and Gary know. Thanks to you both for a fabulous 3 months!!! (be sure to keep us updated on Mr/Mrs. Crane & Family :)"
