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.
This was a wonderful relaxing vacation, just what we needed! The property and house were very clean, the house is spacious and comfortable as well as quiet. Will definitely return.
It's a great quiet little cottage that is in a quiet location but still close to all of the things to do. I would definitely recommend this and the owners to anyone.
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.
Located mid-way between Tampa and Lakeland, the rural suburb of Valrico is convenient to all that Central Florida has to offer. Country Retreat is ideal for vacation, house hunting, or corporate relocation. Walking distance to shopping, restaurants, banks, pharmacies, medical clinics. Minutes from golf, tennis, hiking, canoeing, birdwatching, mountain biking. Less than an hour to beaches, antique districts, outlet malls, theme parks and historic sites.
