Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Tampa Heights - Hemingway's Cottage

Renovated 2 Bedroom, 1 Bath Cottage With Laundry Room And Full Kitchen.

This 1915 home has been renovated and features wood floors throughout, large eat in full kitchen with oven, cook top, full size fridge, dishwasher and built in microwave. Also a full size laundry room with washer and dryer. Sit on your covered front porch or relax out back on your deck. This home is located in a culturally diverse urban Tampa area, just 1.8 miles to downtown Tampa and about 30 minutes to the Gulf beaches. We are also just about a half mile to the new Riverwalk, which is a 2.5 mile trail that you can walk or rent a bike for a relaxing day. Perfect for a business traveler or someone who needs to be close to downtown, Tampa General and St. Joe's Hospitals, the Tampa Convention Center, Raymond James Stadium, Legends Field and Tampa International Airport are all within a 10 minutes drive.

Please note that we have to adhere to our check in time of 4:00 p.m. and our check out time of 11:00 a.m. because we need time to clean and prepare the home for an incoming guest the same day. If you would like to see if we can grant an exception if another guest is not checking in that day, we would be happy to oblige. Also please note that this home is strictly a no pet, no smoking home. We do not rent to anyone under age 25. Thank you.

In town for a funeral

  • 5 of 5

An unexpected death meant finding a place in Tampa near my sister-in-law's home. We found a perfect little house in Central Tampa. Never would have thought that I would be using an otherwise vacation rental for a funeral. Your cottage was so soothing that we were calmed the moment we stepped in the door. Everything was thought of; extra towels, a full stocked kitchen (you'll be surprised), unique private patio and lush plants and flowers. The washer and dryer were another positive.

Knowing you guys were right next door was a true bonus.

A big THANKS! mary Whitt

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay. It looks exactly like the pictures, and it's well maintained. I stayed with my family, and they loved it. Quite neighborhood, friendly people, and easy access to many different places. I would stay here again.

Pros and Cons

  • 2 of 5

Pros: This house had all that we needed. Beds were very comfortable. Shopping and attractions close by. Neighborhood was quite.

Cons: On bottom of toilet it was dirty all around. Floors were dusty. We killed lots of bugs inside home & worst of all a roach. Many houses were in poor condition on the outside in this area as well as the street. We didn't meet the owners even though they live next door. We didn't tell owner about issues because these things should of been addressed prior to our arrival. Because of the cons we wouldn't stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Joanne for your review. I have spoken with the maid staff about doing a better job on cleaning. We pride ourselves on having very clean homes and this is a disappointment to me as well. We did not know we had a bug problem, most likely due to the heavy rains we have been having. Our bug man has already come and sprayed. Our sincere apology to you.

Great place to stay in Tampa!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay while in Tampa. The property was very centrally located to the places I had to go when there. Grocery stores, gyms, downtown and the airport are all close so didn't have to sit in traffic much. The owners are wonderful and the property was very comfortable with a great backyard sitting area for that morning coffee. Would definitely stay there again!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

I had the wonderful pleasure of staying here, the rooms were large, the beds lovely and comfortable, I couldn't have been happier staying here, the owners were lovely and really helped us out!

The property is a five min drive from downtown Tampa and 10 mins away from Tampa international airport making it the perfect place to stay of you're wanting to be close to everything but still be somewhere quiet.

There's a nice little park across the road perfect for smaller children to play in.

beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks over the Christmas holiday. Charming house, comfortable bed, TV and WiFi, our stay was perfect. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio, it was nice to be able to go outside vs a hotel. I would definitely recommend this beautiful home.
