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.
Can't say enough about this renatal! Great location! close proxinity to everything you would want and need including Bush Gardens park. The home was kept very well and was very very cozy! The owners were extremely accomadating and even met us there the night we arrived even though it was pretty late. Thank you Lysa and Mike!! You made everything so easy for us and made us feel very welcome! We can't wait to come back and stay in one of your rentals again! See you soon!
My Brother and I went to my daughters wedding in Tampa Fl. We stay at this townhouse in Carrollwood,it was so close to every thing that we wanted to do, The freeway was just a few minuts away,the gas station only at the and of the street. And the restaurants all within maybe just a cuarter of a mile away. Not to mention this plase I stayed it was so well done, it was so impeccably nise and clean, and the area exelent and confortable to relax. The owners greet you personally and make sure you are very pleased with your staying experience at this townhouse. No doubt I will stay at the same plase next time I go back to Tampa in the fall to visit my family.
Great place to stay. It's a beautiful cottage, a home away from home. The owners are fabulous and accommodating. We would definitely recommend to family and friends

Vacation rental help make a wonderful vacation
The owners was very professional in helping us obtain such a wonderful home. I come to florida every year for spring training and this was the ideal location to the stadium. Also it was close to the beaches and had a great pool. The facility itself was great with all the amenities you would want. I would definitely recommend this vacation unit to other visiting this area.
a great place for the traveler seeking peace and comfort
It was like home away from home, a base from which to explore the surrounding area . It was neat with everything you need to cook, relax, and be comfortable. We enjoyed the peace and restful nature of the neighborhood, feeling less like tourists. We went to the Lowry Park zoo, Sand Key beach, the great botanical gardens in St. Pete with the heritage center nearby, drove up the coast to Tarpon Springs with its history and Greek heritage center. Our trip was short but there is plenty more to do in the area for longer stays. If we return to Tampa , we will try to get this rental again!
Great location and wonderful, accomodating landllords!
We spent a month in Tampa during august. Mike and Lysa are great landlords. They responded quickly to our requests and were most helpful. The location was great, easy access to lots of places in Tampa. A wonderful experience.
Totally dug the surroundings. It is a quaint spot. I think it is great for girlfriend get-aways or single mom spots. Everything we needed was there. The management was awesome, very friendly and informative.

Great Central Location - Accomodates Parents & Grown Children wi
The decor is fabulous, the beds comfortable. Used as a place to sleep and shower it works fantastic. The owners are really nice and accomodated us with an iron, so ask upon arrival if you need one. Michael & Lysa were very accommodating and provided whatever we needed. I would come every year if I could.
First time experience
I was very hesitant when my friend suggested renting a town home. We were in Tampa for the It Works convention and I had never done this before. I must admit it was a good first experience and even though we did not take advantage og the amenities it was good to know they were available. I will do this again!

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.
Awsome!!! Perfect place to stay and enjoy:)
This was my first time in Tampa and I had the most wonderful experience. Mike and Lysa were awesome and had everything nice and neat and ready for me when I got there. The property was very nice, quite, clean, and close to everything. I am looking forward to going back next year and bring my family!!!
