Odd, but clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We were happy with this little cottage and it suited our needs. Note that the smaller bedroom has a large vent that opens to the living room so light and sound are very noticeable in there. I was happy that the cookware was plentiful and of good quality. The A/C doesn't go below 72 so if you need things on the cool side, it might not be ideal for you. Nice and clean!

Cottage in Tampa

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely clean cottage in Tampa. The home was comfortable and charming. The well-groomed sitting area outdoors with the water feature was very welcoming to us travelers from the chilly north. We would definitely stay there again!

Fantastic month in Tampa, safe, clean, and charming.

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay in Tampa at Leslie's cottage. I was staying for the month while working at University of South Florida. One of the underated things about this location for my situation was that traveling north to USF while most of the rush hour traffic is going the opposite direction made it quite easy to get to work, and vice versa in the evening. The neighborhood seemed very safe, and the house is tucked away on a small alley. The backyard is beautiful and we really enjoyed just sitting outside and reading. The house is completely stocked with all the amenities you could possibly need as well. I highly recommend this property and I would definitely stay again.

Lovely home in peaceful , safe neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I were in Tampa for her to have some medical treatments . The cottage was very nicely decorated with comfortable beds and a lovely screened porch . It was so nice to " come home to " in the afternoons . The management staff was excellent and even helped us with the remote to the TV. I would highly recommend !!
