About the property

This 1915 home has been renovated and features wood floors throughout, large eat in full kitchen with oven, cook top, full size fridge, dishwasher and built in microwave. Also a full size laundry room with washer and dryer. Sit on your covered front porch or relax out back on your deck. This home is located in a culturally diverse urban Tampa area, just 1.8 miles to downtown Tampa and about 30 minutes to the Gulf beaches. We are also just about a half mile to the new Riverwalk, which is a 2.5 mile trail that you can walk or rent a bike for a relaxing day. Perfect for a business traveler or someone who needs to be close to downtown, Tampa General and St. Joe's Hospitals, the Tampa Convention Center, Raymond James Stadium, Legends Field and Tampa International Airport are all within a 10 minutes drive.

Please note that we have to adhere to our check in time of 4:00 p.m. and our check out time of 11:00 a.m. because we need time to clean and prepare the home for an incoming guest the same day. If you would like to see if we can grant an exception if another guest is not checking in that day, we would be happy to oblige. Also please note that this home is strictly a no pet, no smoking home. We do not rent to anyone under age 25. Thank you.

Incredible vacation property for a family looking to experience all that Tampa has to offer!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four with two young kids and our month long stay at this place was incredible! The space was clean, nicely decorated and it felt like home. It is a nice size for a small family with a well stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, a grill out back and a very comfortable king size bed. There is a small yard out front and a nice patio in the back. There is also a playground across the street that we visited daily. The location of this home is beyond perfect. You can drive anywhere in the city within 10-15 minutes. The neighborhood itself is older and many of the homes are being fixed up. We felt totally safe here and loved this little gem of neighborhood! We highly recommend staying here!

First one, so the best one

  • 5 of 5

As the title says, this was my first experience with renting a home and I am glad I chose this one. The house is located in a middle class neighborhood centrally located to where I needed to go. It is a very comfortable and quiet home with all the amenities needed for a stay. I didn't get to use the grill outside, but I thought it was a nice option to have. There was an issue with the internet and TV when I got there, but Leslie got it fixed and came over with a gift card for the trouble (Which was an unexpected blessing). I will definitely stay here again.

Adequate cottage experience

  • 3 of 5

Overall it was better than staying at a hotel, liked the layout of the house, comfortable, did not like the the location of the house and too many ants, house was not as clean as we would like it to be. It seemed that the house had been empty too long.

In town for a funeral

  • 5 of 5

An unexpected death meant finding a place in Tampa near my sister-in-law's home. We found a perfect little house in Central Tampa. Never would have thought that I would be using an otherwise vacation rental for a funeral. Your cottage was so soothing that we were calmed the moment we stepped in the door. Everything was thought of; extra towels, a full stocked kitchen (you'll be surprised), unique private patio and lush plants and flowers. The washer and dryer were another positive.

Knowing you guys were right next door was a true bonus.

A big THANKS! mary Whitt

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. It looks exactly like the pictures, and it's well maintained. I stayed with my family, and they loved it. Quite neighborhood, friendly people, and easy access to many different places. I would stay here again.

Pros and Cons

  • 2 of 5

Pros: This house had all that we needed. Beds were very comfortable. Shopping and attractions close by. Neighborhood was quite.

Cons: On bottom of toilet it was dirty all around. Floors were dusty. We killed lots of bugs inside home & worst of all a roach. Many houses were in poor condition on the outside in this area as well as the street. We didn't meet the owners even though they live next door. We didn't tell owner about issues because these things should of been addressed prior to our arrival. Because of the cons we wouldn't stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Joanne for your review. I have spoken with the maid staff about doing a better job on cleaning. We pride ourselves on having very clean homes and this is a disappointment to me as well. We did not know we had a bug problem, most likely due to the heavy rains we have been having. Our bug man has already come and sprayed. Our sincere apology to you.
