Guest comments: 'We wanted to thank you guys for making our stay so enjoyable. You gave us shopping tips, places of interest to visit and fresh fruit. The orange juice from the store isn't nearly as good as fresh squeezed. Sometimes it's the simple things in life that makes all the difference. Best Wishes.
My wife and I stayed here on our first trip to Tampa and arrived at night and exhausted. We were greeted with a welcome pack of tea & pastries which was much appreciated as we didn't have the energy to go out for dinner. The next day the sun was out and we saw the place for the 1st time - amazing! We had breakfast by the pool surrounded by incredible giant Oaks and listened to the birds. The cottage was just perfect and had everything we needed & more. We walked to Starbucks and the supermarket is a 2 minute drive away so everything is on hand.
Jan & Fred are great hosts and no request was too much: how to get into town? how to get to the beach? where can we eat? and when we asked about sight-seeing Jan gave us the 'grand tour'.
If you want to chill out in the country this is the place to be.
Neatly tucked away under oak trees with spanish moss. Clean, well supplied and maintained. We had everything we needed and were comfortable. Thank you!
My husband and I arrived to find a very clean, well maintained cottage in a beautiful setting. We had everything we needed at hand for preparing meals, etc. Jan was most gracious and helpful during our entire stay. We loved the beautiful pool which was very well maintained throughout the time we were there. The cottage is convenient to any shopping need you might have. We loved having the new Fresh Market 3 minutes away and that is a shopping experience in itself!! We look forward to going back again. Our animals enjoyed their vacation as much as we did. Gus and Scout loved the pool!!
Thanks Jan for providing a lovely place close to our daughter and her family. We had a great time. I recommend this property to anyone.
The property is well described and well maintained. The pool and backyard area was very nice with easy access. It was centrally located for shopping and good restaurants. Owner had stocked us with brochures and menus so eating out was never a problem. Close enough to the beaches for an easy drive and close enough to Orlando for a day trip.
My family rented this house for the week of my wedding, which was at Cross Creek Ranch in Dover. The property was perfect for us! Customer service was great and everything was clean. The kids had a blast in the pool and petting the horses. Huge yard with lots of room for them to run around. We had a BBQ the day after the wedding and their was plenty of room for all of our family and friends to hang out. Starbucks,Publix, Panera Bread, Chilis's ect. all in walking distance which was convenient! I would definitely recommend this property!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was simple, neat and extremely clean. Ample items for the kitchen, the bath, etc. We felt safe and were able to have our friends who lived nearby come visit. Ample restaurants and shopping in the area, easy access to everywhere. I would highly recommend this location and set up for 1-3 people. Jan was very communicative through the entire process and easy to work with. The only negative and ever so slight is that the pool area and furniture didnt seem to have been cleared of yard debris daily nor was the leaves removed from the pool daily so it didnt make it very inviting to sit out or enjoy the pool which is a very nice area otherwise. Overall, we would stay again and would definitely recommend to everyone.
