About Laurel Hall

I am an engineer and I have owned my own company since 2001. I built this house with a guest house for my parents. My parents are gone and this beautiful house has been empty. The house is so adorable and I want it to have life again, that's why I am sharing it with lucky vacationers/business travelers.

Laurel Hall purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Laurel Hall chose Florida

When we moved to Florida from Oklahoma, we initially rented a home in this area of Tampa for a year to make a decision about what area of time would be perfect for us. We ended up loving the Odessa area. Odessa is peaceful with a country feel yet it is close to all area attractions and business areas...the best of both worlds.

What makes this cottage unique

The property and the lake are so beautiful and peaceful. This property is also VERY pet friendly.


This cottage will be decorated in farmhouse style and will be very near the lake with a large porch.

Staying here was like staying w family. The home is beautifully decorated. It is clean and has all the comforts of being home. Laurel is an awesome person and very accommodating. The grounds are beautiful and calming/relaxing. I would recommend it to anyone 1000% and would stay here again if I'm ever back in FL. Thank you for being so inviting.

Great place to stay if you need a longer term rental

  • 5 of 5

This was a nice place to stay. I needed a place for several months to stay that was close to Tampa and furnished. It was very comfortable, nicely furnished and had everything I needed. Even though it was only one bedroom there was plenty of space with a large walk-in closet and washer and dryer which was really nice to have. The owner as very nice and we got to know each other but I also had my privacy. It was very pet friendly and easy for my dog with a yard and areas to go walk. Easy to get around the area and good access to the major roads but still secluded and relaxing. I really didn't want to leave when the time was up and it passed by so quickly. I would definitely recommend if you are looking for a nice place that is in a quieter area but still close to everything.

My Girlfriend and I stayed at this lovely guest house for a week and wished we stayed forever lol. The pictures of the place do not do it justice. We had a great time relaxing here in luxury with all the comforts at home. The owner was available anytime we had a question and never did we encounter any problems. We would highly recommend this property if your looking for a lovely relaxing tranquil vacation P.S. If you are an animal lover this is the place for you

One of the best places to stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, calming, relaxing, inviting. If you are looking for a beautiful relaxing place that offers peace and restoration this is the place for you! The property is well taken care of, clean, all the comforts of home; including internet and washer and dryer. The high ceilings give the rooms a much larger feel and the walk in closet is fabulous. The large lot (2.5 acres) plus private lake makes this setting one you will want to 'come home to.' We came with dogs and the large yard was a great place for them to run along with neighborhood roads where we could walk them. The owner lives on this property also (in a separate house) and we were delighted to get to visit with this friendly welcoming person. This is one of our favorite VRBO's we have ever stayed at!
