Why Margo Barnard chose Tarpon Springs
We wanted a home with character that was in an area that is considered a destination. The charm of this Craftsman style home and it's unique living arrangements attracted us to it as a home we could enjoy with our family as well as make a comfortable vacation rental.

This was a good place for us. A great location for a short stay; we spent 4 days. This had all the necessities and was in walking distances to the sponge docks and other restaurants. The owner was easy to work with.

Private and quiet cottage.
The Cottage was very adequate and worked for us. The sofa bed was very comfortable and we actually left it as a bed the whole 24 day stay. No need to revert to sofa because we were outside every day and visiting beaches, friends and relatives. We improvised a way to hang clothes on hangers from the rafters because there was no closet. Large kitchen counter and sink and well stocked. Disappointed that the grill did not work. The patio was a nice place to sit with coffee in the morning. Will definitely book it again.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We apologize it didn't work. We have replaced the BBQ with a new one. So guests can enjoy their own BBQ out on the patio.
It was nice. It was clean. We thought there would be utensils, either they weren’t there or we Couldn’t locate them. Didn’t want to bother anyone, so we just purchased plastic. The grill was fine. Great location.
It's always best if guests can't find something to contact the owner. In this case, the cottage has eating utensils as well as a full supply of cooking utensils. To maximize storage space, the kitchen is designed with drawers inside of drawers. The guests must not have pulled out the inside drawer to find the utensils.
Be assured, the cottage is equipped to ensure a comfortable visit.
Charming place, great location in the middle after all Tarpon Springs and it's attractions
Charming, located in the heart of Tarpon Springs Greek community. Place was dirty, Leyers of dust on ceiling fan, dust covered Cobb webs in the windows. There was no local channels on tv, neglected as far as pest control ( death bugs on the floor ). The owner never got back to me when I asked her about sleeping arrangements. I thought all reviews should be available for future customers good and not so good. I highly value honesty.
The cottage is professional cleaned before each visit. I will address the specific concerns with my staff. Bugs are part of Florida living. We apologize however, we can't control a few bugs getting into the cottage right before guests arrive. Information regarding the sleeping arrangements and tv channels is included in the cottage description.
Wonderful location for the walking tourist
Cozy Cottage is very well located, 2 blks to the historic shopping and dining area of Tarpon Springs. A block and a half in the opposite direction is lovely Craig Park and Spring Bayou. Hubby and I spent many evening walking the park and around the Bayou. While we there, got to watch the Manatees play in the Bayou and oodles of fishermen, all ages, catching and array of fish. If you have a dog, it's a great place to walk the puppy. Cottage, itself is a little spartan, but it served our purpose well. A place to shower and sleep, a base for our exploration of the area. We are in love with Tarpon Springs.
Cute but lacking
Loved the location, but didn't like not having television service with excess to local and current information. Considered moving as soon as we got there. But loved the location.
A block from the Spring Bayou where there are tennis courts, boat launch, walking/running trail, playground and manatee and dolphin sightings.
