3 in 1: Wonderful Hosts, Great place, Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great time in "Fort Tuna", the place is very cozy and comfortable, immediately once you entered you fell like at home. Jim and Sandy were awesome and lovely hosts. The place had everything we needed and we spend 1 month in their place. The location is great, close to many restaurants, shops, supermarkets, library and close to town.

Jim and Sandy are highly knowledgeable about the area and always gave us great advice.

We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone.

Terrific location and charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

We've come back again and again to Jim and Sandy's "Fort Tuna". It is quiet, private and charming and we love that the birds wake us up in the mornings. It's always been very nice and comfortable, but the new furniture layout is really great. This is so much nicer and more fun than staying in a hotel. The neighborhood is very pretty and safe. This our 4th time here and we'll be coming again for next year!

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My week in Tampa was my dream vacation come true. This location was ideal and completely enhanced my experience of Tampa. Sunset Park is a beautiful and safe area for walking my dog and was close to everything I wanted to visit. Jim and Sandy were friendly and the studio was very comfortable. My dog and I enjoyed relaxing on the porch after our walks and although I brought his bed, he loved sleeping on the cool tile floor.

Wonderful place with wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I felt very welcomed by Jim and Sandy. They constantly made sure that the stay was the best that they could make it, and it was an awesome stay. The area was beautiful and very safe. It was in a very nice neighborhood and there were beautiful houses everywhere you look. I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a couple's getaway or anyone looking for a starting point to bike around the city.

Fabulous Stay

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this cottage rental for numerous reasons. Jim and Sandy are warm, accomodating hosts who make you feel less like a guest and more like a great neighbor. :) I rented the studio for a month. I was able to study quietly and relax every day after work as if in my own home. The back yard is so pretty and the surrounding neighborhood is safe and lovely and great for biking and walking. As I write this review, the birds outside are chirping like crazy! I had everything I needed during my stay including coffee and muffins as a nice welcoming treat when I arrived. You'll be glad you stayed here. Thank you, Jim and Sandy for a wonderful experience.

I really didn't want to leave

  • 5 of 5

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.
