Country Idyll

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here on our first trip to Tampa and arrived at night and exhausted. We were greeted with a welcome pack of tea & pastries which was much appreciated as we didn't have the energy to go out for dinner. The next day the sun was out and we saw the place for the 1st time - amazing! We had breakfast by the pool surrounded by incredible giant Oaks and listened to the birds. The cottage was just perfect and had everything we needed & more. We walked to Starbucks and the supermarket is a 2 minute drive away so everything is on hand.

Jan & Fred are great hosts and no request was too much: how to get into town? how to get to the beach? where can we eat? and when we asked about sight-seeing Jan gave us the 'grand tour'.

If you want to chill out in the country this is the place to be.

Charming Retreat yet close to everything

  • 4 of 5

Located just a few blocks from main arteries, this property is a lovely retreat. The large, Spanish moss draped oaks are beautiful and help create a little sanctuary. Any type of store or restaurant is close at hand. The owners took the time to decorate the cottage for Christmas and even included a small Christmas tree. We really enjoyed our time here and hope to visit again.

Adequate

  • 3 of 5

The accommodations were adequate as a base for a family wedding so we didn't use the facilities much. We did use the oven to roast two turkeys and a ham but did our activities at our children's home in Fishhawk. The light fixtures were not bright enough which is odd. For instance, the four bulb fixtures only had 2 bulbs or half of what would be called for. Same for 2 bulb fixtures having only one. And, the bulbs must have been the energy saving ones because it seemed dim in the room. Beyond that we were comfortable. Nicely equiped.

A little bit of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We travelled down from Canada with our 2 dogs & fell in love with our little cottage that we

rented for March & April. The dogs had a great time as the yard is very large for the

dogs to run around in. It was very relaxing for us & it didn't take long for us to feel right at

home. Everything you need is close by , but you feel you are in the country. We loved the

birds & the owls that you can hear hooting at night. Claus the property manager was always

there to help if need be. We loved it so much we will be back again next year. We are very

happy to have found the Country Retreat. Thanks so much Jan.! Gary & Rose
