About the property

Easy Access I-275, Veterans, Beaches, Downtown, Groceries

Come and stay in our Tampa Cottage...

Our cottage has four bedrooms, located in North Tampa, within easy reach of both I-275 and the Veterans expressway.

You will feel like you are in the country when really, you are in Tampa, close to everything including the beaches, Busch Gardens, our Aquarium, Adventure Island, Lowry Park Zoo, Museum of Science and Industry, Winter the dolphin's aquarium, Disney, Epcot, the space coast and so much more! The Convention center and Downtown is 20 minutes (13 miles) away, Bush Gardens, Moffitt and USF are 6 - 7 miles away.

Your dogs will love running leash free in the private neighborhood while your kids play on the playground under the oaks....and you can listen to your home radio station through Alexa....or just ask her about the news and weather.

You will enjoy the close by, state of the art Publix grocery store (two of them) within two miles.

Your partner will like being able to reach many many restaurants in double quick time in any direction especially on Dale Mabry Hwy only two miles away.....

Hopping on the Veterans Expressway is a quick route to reach Tampa International Airport, only 25 minutes away, great when you need to ditch a relation in a hurry!

When your hips are cranky, and you need to walk, you will be pleased that there is a great set of quiet streets to walk on within a few hundred feet of the cottage.. our Tampa Cottage manual will show you the way!

When inside, you can revel in the lounge, cooled by the AC and fans while you watch Netflix on the 50 inch TV. You can fire up YouTube or cast whatever is on your laptop to the smart TV while surfing the high speed internet that our cottage enjoys.

Alexa, do I look good today? You will look good in our Tampa Cottage!

Our Tampa Cottage sleeps seven among a King size bed in the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, one queen bed bedroom and three twin beds between two bedrooms for the kid/parent/friend components!

If you are the out-doors type, you can sip wine on the patio while the significant other grills some juicy steaks on the stainless steel grill...not to say that the veggie burger is not lined up next to it, but you can work that out, can you?

If you stay for a while, enjoy the two car garage with a fabulous automatic door opener (ok, a clicker) to drive into, and a washer and dryer to clean your laundry, or your guests laundry, or their guests laundry!

The spacious kitchen has a chopping block island and great spot lights so you can act like you are a gourmet chef, complete with a wine rack (bring wine!) and cork screw......while the family plays a board game on the kitchen table, or at the dining room table which accommodates six....

You will love your stay at our cottage, and by the time you leave, you will realize that you are LOVING it!

The cottage is fully equipped, just bring your clothes, food and toiletries for a great stay of any length!

You will want to bring kleenex with you, because your being will tell you not to leave, please stay here, live here, this is home, but at the end of your trip, your mind will tell you to go......so wipe away the tears, and bid a fond farewell to your Tampa Cottage, it's high speed internet, and all of it's fabulous comforts, and go, go home while promising to come back as soon as you can!

We will love to have you, come and stay at our Tampa Cottage!


We have a cool group of homes if you need additional options or accommodations:

Clean, quiet, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

For our kids spring break we decided to trek across the state from West Palm to Tampa. Since we were staying for several nights we decided to try staying in a house as opposed to a standard hotel. That turned out to be a good decision. The location was nice and quiet, yet close enough to all that Tampa has to offer. The house itself was plenty big for our family. We had everything that we needed to cook in as opposed to eating out every night. We ended up having a great stay and would recommend this house to anyone looking for a little bit of home while on vacation.

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Tampa Cottage! The short drive to USF made it the perfect place to stay for our son's graduation weekend. The spacious great room and kitchen were perfect to visit and celebrate with family. The cottage was not far from the airport and also not far from some great restaurants and attractions. Jonathan was very kind and accommodating.
