Overview

Tampa Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 bath home in quiet neighborhood yet close to everything!

Thank you for inquiring about our vacation home, 'The Coral Cottage'. This 1930 home has just finished a high end renovation with a Southern Coastal décor. It features a new kitchen with espresso cabinets and of course all of the utensils and cookery you could need to whip up a fabulous meal. The living room and dining room offer 12 foot ceilings and wood flooring with a driftwood look. The master bedroom features a private en suite bath with white Carrera marble floors and large walk in shower. From your master bedroom you can step out onto a spacious deck over looking your lush and private yard. The master bedroom has a queen bed with a super comfy memory foam mattress, the 2nd bedroom has a pillow top queen bed and the third bedroom has a single bed. There is an inside laundry room with a full size washer and dryer. Only about 5 to 10 minutes by car to downtown Tampa, Tampa General Hospital and St. Joe's Hospital, Raymond James Stadium, and more. Our beautiful Gulf Beaches are about 30 minutes away. Maximum sleeping capacity is 6 people. Riverside Heights got its start in the 1920's and enjoyed a post World War II building boom. It is tucked along the eastern border of the Hillsborough River where homes on the water sell for upwards of over a $1,000,000. We live here and we love it and we're sure you'll love it too!

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

About Leslie Sibbitt

My husband and I own this property and 4 other properties in the neighborhood. We love this urban Tampa community and being so close to great restaurants and shopping. I am a Realtor with Keller Williams South Tampa and my husband is an artist/photographer.

Leslie Sibbitt purchased this bungalow in 1993

Why Leslie Sibbitt chose Tampa

My husband owned this property before we met and married. It sat empty for a long time and then we decided to renovate it.

What makes this bungalow unique

We love this home because of it's quiet charm, and the lush yard with it's thick canopy of trees, and the great neighborhood feel of this community

Guestbook comments from the owner

Couldn't have been happier with our stay at Leslie's place! Everything was very clean and modern. Felt safe in the neighborhood. She and her husband were very accomodating, even offering suggestions of places to go for food, groceries, etc. They responded quickly to any questions we had. Would definitely stay here again!

Updated cottage

  • 4 of 5

The Cottage worked well for our family that was down for UT graduation. It is centrally located and only a short drive to campus and convient to Y'bor, and South Howard areas. The neighborhood is older, but safe. They have done a nice job renovating house. The backyard garden is serene, with 3 cats that live outside and are fun to watch. We found the neighbors very friendly.

The kitchen is very sparce, if you plan to cook. It is fine if you are bringing in take out or reheating food.

The beds are comfortable. The living room/dining room furniture is not very comfortable, if you plan to hang out there. We were in and out a lot so it was not a big deal.

I think that for the price, it was a great place to land and explore the area. I would stay again.

Coral Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was just what the pictures showed, It was very clean! The deck was nice to sit and read. The owners do care about the property and there is someone there frequently cleaning the yard and trimming bushes, I would stay here again and highly recommend this lovely cottage.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 weeks in this lovely bungalow over Christmas and the New Year. Had a most enjoyable time. Lovely bungalow very nicely decorated and equipped in a safe and quiet neighbourhood. Very nice outside area, perfect for reading and a nice glass of wine after a busy day. Some good restaurants close by to suit all tastes.

Nice bungalow

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 7 nights and enjoyed the home. Close to downtown and Ybor city , and was perfect for two couples. We thought the yard and gardens were spectacular . Good rental for a modest price.

Cute but needs basics

  • 2 of 5

Lovely bungalow short driving distance to downtown Tampa and Ybor City entertainment areas. Sleeps 5 comfortably but seating in living room is poor and uncomfortable. Kitchen is sparsely supplied with dishes--don't plan on cooking meals here. Sparse dining and living room lighting could be improved, also some bulbs were not working. Bathrooms nicely updated but need towel racks. Some attention to providing these necessities would really improve customer enjoyment.
