“Easy going and relaxed environment.”
Reviewed March 23, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

First time staying in Tampa, Fl. Central to a lot of things to do and see. The cottage was decorated in a beach/tropical style that put me in a good mood. The ability to cook and grill out when we wanted to was a nice bonus! We used the apartment-sized refrigerator (dorm refrigerator included as well) to keep bottles of water handy, that along with left overs, made the trip even more budget friendly. Michael was very that accommodating when we arrived earlier than expected. The pull out mattress was very nice. The property was very relaxing anytime of the day. We LOVED the local wildlife. Having a stackable washer and dryer turned out to be a wonderful addition too. Really couldn't ask for a better experience!! Thanks Michael and Alyssa!

Fun and bright cottage, nice touches throughout. Lysa and Michael were great hosts, would definitely stay again. Enjoyed sitting outside to read, saw manatee's and a gator in river. Used grill to have a cookout with friends also visiting area.

This place is a real find! We stayed in the cottage, and loved it. It's just as the photos show - a little funky, and right on the river. We were treated to a pair of Manatees frolicking in the river one morning, and a wide array of birds every day. The cottage is very comfortable. The bed is comfy, and the bathroom quite expansive! Don't expect to make gourmet meals here - the kitchen supplies are OK, but not great. We didn't mind because we were there to explore not cook! Only downside - there is no Wi Fi in the cottage - the signal is just too weak. So we found internet cafes and got our on-line needs met that way. We will definitely return and plan to say longer the next time.

Essentially we picked this place rather than a hotel because we need to self cater because of my wife's allergies. The self catering facilities were very limited indeed. Having said that the standard of decor was excellent, the views fabulous and Michael (owner) was very helpful. There was no hairdryer, sharp knives, pots..... Michael got us a knife and a bottle opener.... If the self catering element is not an issue then I would recommend this place otherwise choose somewhere with with better cooking facilities. Wifi is poor because the place it at the end of the garden and the router is in the main house.
