About Sheila B.

We are both educators in Miami Dade County. Both of our children attended college in Tallahassee. After an exhausting search for off campus housing we opted to purchase a home so that we could enjoy quality time with our children when we visited Tallahassee. Thus our business was born! We love Tallahassee and all it has to offer. We hope to retire here in the near future.

Why Sheila B. chose Tallahassee

This home is a great home just outside the city. It offers a secluded space for relaxing after a busy and hectic day in Tallahassee. This house although located just minutes from downtown, colleges/universities, the airport and local attractions provides the feel of rural Tallahassee. You are more likely to encounter many of the local animals such as squirrels, foxes, cardinals more than other people. The yard is fantastic in each season, in the spring the flora and fauna are in full bloom and the colors and scents are fabulous. In the winter the starkness of the trees and grass provide a perfect backdrop to fall/winter. Inside the house is spacious and roomy. The screened in back porch offers a perfect place for relaxing.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the interior space of this home. I loved the flowers that appear each spring! The columns gives the house character. We love the way that the house sits backs off the road. It's a very unique house!

Christmas was more than I imagined

  • 5 of 5

I lodged here for 4 days during the Christmas holiday. I wanted to be near my grandchildren, so I planed this Christmas away from home. My mom, hubby and the family packed up and headed to Tallahassee. This was the perfect home away from home. I was able to cook dinner and invite family and friends over. We had a blast. The house was well kept and bedrooms were very comfortable. Thank you to Sheila, the owner for the ease of renting the property. Christmas was so much more that I expected. Will definitely lodge here again.

The best homecoming stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property without a doubt lives up to the expectation of luxurious. It was grand in size compared to hotels and other vacation rentals in Tallahassee. This made entertaining our family and classmates wonderful. We were impressed with how beautiful and immaculately clean it was. Not to mention, the neighborhood was peaceful and serene just far enough from the busy college crowd but close enough to take part in the homecomming festivities. We will certainly be returning for another pleasant stay!

I had an amazing time in Tallahassee, and staying here was just the icing on the cake. My family and I came just to spend time with my son who is attending school there. It couldn't come home for the summer due to classes he had to take so we brought the family to him. All I have got to say is that this place really felt like home. The yard is huge! A great placying space for my younger children. Inside, everything you could ever need to feel at home was there. I just couldn't see myself renting a hotel room when we visit Tallahassee again after this. It was just too comfortable and a much better way for my family and I to bond with my son who has been away from us finishing up his degree. The setting made it even harder to part ways with him. We didn't want to leave! The owner, Sheila, was very nice and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone traveling to Tallahassee. Just amazing. Thank you!

Excellent customer service

  • 5 of 5

Sheila was very helpful in pointing us in the direction of a home for our sized family at our budget level, prompt with great pictures, and followed up with phone calls to make sure we received the information. She was always honest and not pushy. I would recommend trying her places:)

Nice, quiet and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Rented recently. Had a great time visiting Tallahassee for Homecoming and was nicely surprised when we arrived at the house. The inside was nice and spacious, the yard was huge and overall the place had a secluded vibe. I would definitely stay there again. The only issue we had was a minor issue with one of the bathrooms and one of the electrical outlets. Aside from that, everything else was as advertised.

Owner Exceptional Nice

  • 3 of 5

Our Family stay here was comfortable. Being able to cook for my family is always something that makes a weekend together much more special. The place was large. We were able to BBQ outside and spend time on the porch. The owner was great and she was very attentive to us. The house needed some attention which the owner responded that she is working on it.
