Overview

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 Riverside Heights

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

Comfy Tampa Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

Even though we picked the worst possible weather (30's to 40's evening temperatures) to visit a Florida, our stay was comfortable and relaxing. Due to these cold temperatures, Leslie dropped from off two portable heaters to ensure our stay was warm and delightful. They did the job! We felt right at home at this unique bungalow and Leslie was extremely accommodating, respectful and kind when we called. It's perfectly located by all the sights in and near Tampa. We felt perfectly safe while staying at this lovely bungalow. What we enjoyed the most was relaxing on the back porch with a glass of ice tea and soaking in a little sun. It's also surrounded by the most beautiful, lush greenery. We affectionately referred to it as our bungalow in the jungle-alow. This bungalow had it all for an amazing price. We would definitely stay here again without hesitation.

Great Bungalow in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Love this little bungalow! Location was great, it was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. As with many older neighborhoods, this one seems to be transitioning for the better. The lush trees and vegetation were beautiful and provided great shade. Tankless hot water heater meant no one ran out of hot water in a shower and having the washer/dryer was terrific. Would definitely stay here again.
