About Maureen Uhlig

This is my mother's second home. She enjoys her other home in Clemmons, NC. I am a local Tampa Realtor with Keller Williams South Tampa and a member of the Greater Tampa Association of Realtors.

Maureen Uhlig purchased this Cottage in 2007

Why Maureen Uhlig chose Tampa

My mother wanted to have a home in Tampa so she could be near me. She lives in North Carolina part of the year near my sister.

What makes this Cottage unique

This home offers a peaceful, secure and stylish setting, yet is just minutes away from everything Tampa Bay has to offer.

                                                    Convenient, quiet, and safe location.

                                                    Ronald P.Dartmouth, MA

                                                    We were on a golf vacation and the cottage was perfect for our needs. Very homey atmosphere with all the conveniences we needed. We would return here for our next trip to Tampa.

                                                    wow! absolutely perfect

                                                    ken t.

                                                    Great location, well decorated, completely stocked, awesome outside area to relax in, and a way better option than a hotel.

                                                    My wife loved it, I think she wants to move in permanently!

                                                    Great little cottage

                                                    Bradley J.MERRITT ISLAND

                                                    Really enjoyed our stay, great little home. Homeowner is very responsive to concerns.

                                                    Nice and quite house. Beautiful area near to the river. We enjoyed a lot!! Many thanks.

                                                    Carmen Rosa V.

                                                    I recommend this house for holidays and vacations. It’s really nice and peaceful. It’s has everything for stay. The manager always was available for our requests. I look forward to return soon.

                                                    Odd, but clean and comfortable

                                                    Renee W.

                                                    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

                                                    Linda P.

                                                    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!

                                                    The 2.5 mile scenic River Walk is about 3/4 of a mile from this home. Rent bikes or walk down this beautiful pedestrian path along the Hillsborough River. It will take you right through downtown Tampa and past the Glazer Children's Museum, The Straz Performing Arts Center and the Tampa Museum of Art.
