Jim Moore purchased this studio in 2003
I stayed 10 nights and did not want to leave. It was so peaceful and cozy It felt like home. The location was perfect. A beautiful safe neighborhood but a quick ride to anything you needed. The owners are friendly and helpful. Even though the cottage is behind the main house it feels very private. I would occasionally see the owners in passing or working in the yard. I loved walking around the yard with all the fun quirky gardens, the lizards and the family cat. I will definitely return. Thank you to my wonderful hosts.
We had a wonderful stay at Jim's little south Tampa studio. We rented his place for 3 weeks and had nothing but good experiences. Jim and his family were fantastic. The were there, but gave their guests plenty of space. They even left us banana-nut bread for us one morning! :-) Anything that we needed, we just needed to ask. and "volia" he took care of it. The place was clean, cute and was perfect for our needs. I am from the Tampa area and know the city well. I can tell you that the studio is in a great location. I plan on staying at Jim's studio in the future. (if it is not rented because too many people find out what a great deal it is !!!)
I stayed here for the entire week and couldn't have asked for a more comfortable, charming accommodation and the most welcoming and warm hosts, Jim and Sandy. The listing description was extremely accurate and the cottage was as lovely as the photos portrayed it. The accommodation contained all that I needed in terms of amenties and I especially enjoyed the the coffee pods and selection of teas available to me. I enjoyed having a freshly brewed coffee almost every morning. The cottage was spotless and simple touches of towels, soap and hand soap made it feel like home. Once I got familiar with the area and driving around, I couldn't believe how close I was to the airport (15 min.), shopping malls (10 min.), nearby eateries (5-10 min. away). I appreciated Jim and Sandy's recommendations for sights and eateries like the Taco Bus- the food was inexpensive and so delicious! I had mentioned to Jim and Sandy that it was my birthday that week and had asked for recommendations on how to spend the day. They gave me several ideas and finally I decided on a day trip to Sanibel Island. What really made it special was Jim taking the time to find me a quaint little fish restaurant along the way he thought I would enjoy (giving me a print out of it) and presenting me with a birthday muffin and card from the two of them. Thank you for your thoughtfulness- meant so much to me! Also thoroughly enjoyed a slice of homemade chocolate cake made by their daughter. Can't forget to mention my last night there when Jim and Sandy took me to see the owls at night who nested on their property with Jim using his cell phone to play the owl call! That was so special! Thank you for making my stay so memorable and unforgettable. I will definitely be recommending this place to all my friends. Thoroughly enjoyed myself and can't wait to visit again!
From the moment we stepped out of the car we knew we were going to love this little cottage. It was so lovely and inviting. It was quiet and quaint but we had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Sandy and Jim were especially nice and very friendly. We enjoyed visiting with them so much. Everything was close by..shopping, dining and many other things to do. Everything was centrally located and easy to get to. Thanks to Jim and Sandy for making the stay so memorable and being such wonderful hosts. We can't wait to come back again sometime!
My husband and I stayed at this funky, comfortable studio while visiting my parents for Christmas. It was perfect for our needs-- comfortable, extremely clean, in a quiet residential neighborhood, well managed by friendly people who respected our privacy, and reasonably priced. We will definitely stay here on our next Tampa visit!
We spent the entire summer there and it was wonderful. Great location, friendly folks and very comfortable. It was like a home away from home for us. My grandchildren loved visiting Nana in her little cottage.
