Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Kevin was amazing and we will definitely stay again! The cottage was very clean & had everything we needed... He also dropped us off & picked us up from the arena for a concert. Talk about a hostess with the mostess!!! His property is beautiful - tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the big city, which is literally less than ten minutes away. Loved it!

Very quiet and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Directions made it easy to locate this interesting property which is away from the noise of every day life. Kevin, the owner, made sure that we had no issues during our stay. This cottage is clean, has adequate bedding, towels, utensiles and most everything needed for an enjoyable stay. Although we did not tour the beautiful tropical trees and flowers that grow here, we will most likely have the opportunity to do so on our next visit.

Great experience in a botanical garden

  • 4 of 5

This urban oasis is conveniently located near downtown Tampa and just three miles from Ybor City. The airport, spring training baseball, NFL, NHL stadiums all close by. A new passenger ferry from downtown Tampa to St. Petersburg with its trendy restaurants, Dali museum and beaches makes site seeing even easier. The Oasis offers plenty of privacy and a helpful owner, Kevin, who is willing to share his knowledge of the region. A great deal for the price. I will definitely return.

Cute Cottage Surrounded by Abundant Trees and Plants

  • 5 of 5

Once my wife and I determined that we found the right house, set back amid its lush tropical surroundings, we immediately began to relax and settle in to the laid back life inside this tropical nursery. The Owner, who lives on site in the main house, is very friendly, respects your privacy, and offered helpful suggestions as to places to visit that suited our interests. He gave us a little tour of the gardens and nursery and met his 8 cats and several of the chickens. He also kindly gave us a half dozen fresh eggs for breakfast the next day.

The cottage has a nice screened in porch to relax with morning coffee and evening drinks. The interior is clean and is provided with a nice kitchen, dining, living area, and a queen bed in a separate bedroom and bath with washer and dryer.

The unit is located near a couple of great parks, Lettuce Lake and Hillsborough River State Park, as well as downtown Tampa, Ybor City, and St. Petersburg. We especially liked to hike in the parks.

The house is in a somewhat funky neighborhood, not unlike certain communities in Weeki-Wachee where we've stayed in the past. It may not be for everyone, but if you like old Florida with lots of surrounding greenery in a laid back setting, and also near many of Tampa's attractions, than this place is for you.
