Clean, quaint and private.

  • 5 of 5

Kevin greeted us and showed us around this beautiful property. He took his time to tell us about all of the different plants growing on this lush oasis. So close to the hustle and bustle of Tampa, yet such a serene setting. Very clean inside and had everything necessary. Clean linens, comfortable bed, excellent water pressure in the shower and very cool air conditioning. If we're in the area again we'll definitely stay here again. Perfect place for a laid back couple. Thanks Kevin!

Great little place with lots of privacy

  • 4 of 5

My partner and I stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Located near just about everything downtown, but nicely tucked away on a beautiful 3-acre lot. Check out the La Isla Del Sol Azul for a delicious cuban espresso (and thanks to Kevin for making the recommendation).

Lush Garden Spot with Very Clean & Modern Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Kevin does a great job of communicating, and his detached cottage is very clean and modern. We stayed here one night for a concert in Raymond James stadium and Kevin drove us to and from the venue (for a reasonable fee), which was awesome! The cottage has a full kitchen and is very spacious. If ever we need to stay in the Tampa area again we will definitely look into this place as a first choice.
