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.

Beautiful Location, Lovely Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my mom, and my dog all had a lovely time at Laurel's place. They made sure we had everything we needed and took care of minor issues right away. They were great at communication, just a text, call, or 2-step walk away. This guest house is beautifully decorated, comfortable, and about a 40-minute scenic drive to a lovely beach on the Gulf. In the backyard there's a lovely lake to sit in front of and drink coffee in the morning. All in all a perfect little place to get away. We would definitely stay again and maybe do some more touristy things, but we had a relaxing long weekend July 7-10.

Nice Lake Guest House with easy access to all things

  • 5 of 5

Laurel and Wesley were awesome ! From the time we arrived... appreciated the warm welcome and excellent overview of the house and all amenities. We stayed for almost a week and took several dog walks from the house enjoying the outdoors and constant bird activity. The interior is decorated very eloquently, yet has a cool vibe to it especially amongst all the trees and serene lake environment. Fully equipped kitchen including coffee maker. Overall nice place to stay in the Tampa area and would recommend highly.
