Meticulously Clean, Generous Host, and Best View Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while visiting family in Brandon and Tampa. It was easy to hop on I-75 and I -4 to visit them. This little peaceful place has an incredible view of the lake loaded with wild life. I think we counted over 15 kinds in one day. White pelicans, sandhill cranes, cardinals, storks, ospreys to name a few. The host is very accommodating and she had coffee, cream and waters waiting for us. Their is a full washer and dryer too. She told us about a free gym for senior citizens in the area so we took advantage of that. The bed was comfy and she had several comforters to choose from. The kitchen was loaded making it easy for us to cook a couple of nights. Thank you Carmen and Dave we really appreciated your help with your directions. Hope to see you again.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This was really a great place to stay. There was plenty of yard space to sit out and enjoy the Florida weather and watch the birds. And there was a nice pool even though we didn't use it. The house had everything we needed and was actually pretty spacious as instead of a studio it had a seperate bedroom. Really nice when my husband stays up to watch TV and I want to go to bed. And Carmen and Dave are really delightful people. Could not have been better.

Quiet little cottage with a peaceful view

  • 5 of 5

Carmen is a fabulous host, who ensured our stay was stress free. Her communication is quick, and nothing was a problem. The cottage is gorgeous, so very quiet looking out on to a beautiful lake and her pool. We enjoyed watching the bird life, especially the cardinals feeding at the bird feeder. We had the pool all to ourselves and it was just peaceful. We watched a couple of otters or beavers swimming in the lake while swimming. The cottage is well stocked and she had coffee, sugar, stevia, shampoo, conditioner and even water for us. There is a Publix supermarket about 2 minutes away, with everything you need. Lots of restaurants close by and we were close to Tampa General Hospital visiting family. The wifi works well, and there are plenty of options on the TV, we were appreciated the cable.

We would happily stay again, and highly recommend Carmen and Dave's cottage.

Owner's Response: Annie thank you for staying with us. We are glad it was easy for you. We always aim to make our tenants comfortable. We love this area of town too. It's just has such easy to everything in the Tampa bay area. Especially, when family is visiting love ones in the hospital. I wanted to make sure everything was perfect for you considering the circumstances of your visit. Hope all is better with your family. Carmen & Dave p.s. Our cardinals have been visiting us for years. They are same couple.
