Overview

About the property

NO CLEANING FEE!

Great space in a great neighborhood. Located in the Lake Morton Historic District, and close to just about everything. The cottage is a studio (so the only privacy is in the bathroom), located directly behind our home, with a kitchenette and a nice size bathroom and shower. The two couches are convertible Ikea couches, that fold out to queen size beds and are a little on the firm side, but quite comfortable. Also, there is a traditional queen bed. There is a large, private patio behind the cottage. We live in the main home, and the cottage is a completely separate structure. While there are some common areas outside, we will afford you as much privacy as you desire.

Florida Southern College is two blocks away, and there are quite a few places to eat and drink within a short distance. Detroit Tigers Spring Training is 10 minutes away and Sun N Fun is around 20 minutes from this location.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and had everything we needed (as advertised) in a quiet residential neighborhood. The owner was very accommodating to our arrival and departure times and we enjoyed having the conveniences of home and the choice of making some of our own meals during our short stay in Florida. In addition to the queen size bed I was pleasantly surprised with the comfort of the firm convertible couches. I would definitely stay again.

Beautiful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed staying at the shed! It’s extremely clean and beautiful in the inside. Although it’s a studio it’s big enough for everyone to be comfortable and has everything you need. Will definitely stay again!!

Great stay with all things considered!

  • 4 of 5

This space was well-suited for our recent stay. We had what we needed to cook our own food. For those looking to book and needing a kitchen, please note that what is available is a microwave/convection oven combo. Additionally, there are plug-in electric burners if needed. If there was one complaint, it would be that there was no way to regulate the inside temperature. During our stay, it was unseasonably cold and the only option for heating was a small space heater. We were gone most the day, so we did not leave it running. It took awhile to heat the space up after we returned for the day.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry about the insufficient heat. You are absolutely right, it was the coldest that we've seen here in years (28° F), during your stay. I should have thought to provide an extra space heater. I do apologize. I do want to point out that there is inside temperature control. The cottage has two A/C units, which also provide heat. Admittedly, they do not provide enough heat on the coldest nights, but usually the space heater makes up for it. Thanks for the nice review, and the critique. Every comment helps us improve for the next guest! Chuck

Perfect!!

The cottage was the perfect place for our visit. It is roomy, comfortable and has all the comforts of home. The neighborhood is nice and is close to a variety of restaurants and shopping. The owner was accommodating and available if needed. Will definitely be staying here again!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect for our quick trip to visit family for the Thanksgiving holiday. I loved the large open space. It was comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. Great location and great neighborhood. The only downside, if you could even call it that, was that the front door to this house is about 5 feet from the backdoor of the main house. Other than that, would definitely stay here again. Great communication and super nice home owner.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review. I really appreciate it. It is kind of cozy between the two buildings, and that was a concern when we started renting the place. We thought about just having guest use the patio entrance, and just not use the "front" door at all, but after receiving guest feedback, most of them preferred the front entry. Actually, before we remodeled, there was a door that opened up to the parking area (where the living room TV is now), but because of the way the ceiling dropped off, we eliminated it, and put a window in it's place. For the record, the buildings are separated by 11 feet, I had to go measure ;), but the stairs from the main house do land about 7 feet from the entrance to the cottage. Thanks for staying with us! I really appreciate the feedback. Chuck
