About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath home in quiet neighborhood yet close to everything!

Thank you for inquiring about our vacation home, 'The Coral Cottage'. This 1930 home has just finished a high end renovation with a Southern Coastal décor. It features a new kitchen with espresso cabinets and of course all of the utensils and cookery you could need to whip up a fabulous meal. NOTE: We have just finished a re-vamp of the cooking utensils and cookery and have made sure that a great meal can be made in the kitchen! The living room and dining room offer 12 foot ceilings and wood flooring with a driftwood look. NOTE: We have just put in a new comfortable sofa and added more seating to the living room. The master bedroom features a private en suite bath with white Carrera marble floors and large walk in shower. From your master bedroom you can step out onto a spacious deck over looking your lush and private yard. The master bedroom has a queen bed with a super comfy memory foam mattress, the 2nd bedroom has a pillow top queen bed and the third bedroom has a single bed. There is an inside laundry room with a full size washer and dryer. Only about 5 to 10 minutes by car to downtown Tampa, Tampa General Hospital and St. Joe's Hospital, Raymond James Stadium, and more. Our beautiful Gulf Beaches are about 30 minutes away. Maximum sleeping capacity is 6 people. Riverside Heights got its start in the 1920's and enjoyed a post World War II building boom. It is tucked along the eastern border of the Hillsborough River where homes on the water sell for upwards of over a $1,000,000. We live here and we love it and we're sure you'll love it too! PLEASE NOTE: We do not rent to anyone under the age of 25. We also do not allow pets or smoking in the home at any time. We also adhere to a maximum of no more than 5 total guests. We live close by if you need anything at all! Thank you.

About Leslie Sibbitt

My husband and I own this property and 4 other properties in the neighborhood. We love this urban Tampa community and being so close to great restaurants and shopping. I am a Realtor with Keller Williams South Tampa and my husband is an artist/photographer.

Leslie Sibbitt purchased this bungalow in 1993

Why Leslie Sibbitt chose Tampa

My husband owned this property before we met and married. It sat empty for a long time and then we decided to renovate it.

What makes this bungalow unique

We love this home because of it's quiet charm, and the lush yard with it's thick canopy of trees, and the great neighborhood feel of this community, plus it's central location to everything Tampa has to offer from the 2.5 mile Riverwalk, just about a half mile from this home where you can walk and rent bikes for a relaxing scenic day and the Gulf beaches that are about 30 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The location and atmosphere could not have been better! I rented this house instead of getting a hotel to get ready in and stay at over my wedding weekend. Having a kitchen and multiple bathrooms made it much nicer for my bridesmaids to hang out and get ready. And the quiet deck and beautiful yard were a perfect place to spend quiet moments away from the hectic buzz.

Everyone slept comfortably, and said they would love to stay there again!

Perfect location to our daughter and downtown Tampa.

  • 4 of 5

All you need for a comfortable stay in a charming Tampa neighborhood. Owners work hard to make your stay pleasant and succeed. This was our second time there. We enjoyed it just as much this time.

Christmas House in A mini Jungle!

  • 5 of 5

We can't even begin to express how cool this little cottage is! Tucked away in wild but well kept greenery it's a little oasis in Tampa. Impeccably clean, well decorated and perfectly located, we had the most magical Christmas at Coral Cottage. 3 min Uber to downtown and buses a walk away, this place is a must stay for Tampa. Thanks to our hosts for an incredible holiday rental!

Beautiful home in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

I was absolutely stunned by the gorgeous yard. The interior was well maintained, and the owner was very responsive with the only minor issue we had during our stay. The house is centrally located and quickly accessible to main thoroughfares and highways, while still feeling quiet and calm. Fantastic stay.

Quaint, cozy and quiet

  • 4 of 5

This quaint bungalow was our home for a week while we moved our son to Tampa. It fit our needs perfectly. It is very pretty inside, and the surrounding neighborhood was quiet.
