Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Lutz - Lutz Cottage

Centrally Located Yet Close To Everything

The Convention center and Downtown is 20 minutes (13 miles) away, Bush Gardens, Moffitt and USF are 6 - 7 miles away. One of Dr Beach's top beaches is 25 miles away, and you can reach Disney or the Space Coast within a short drive. The airport is about 20 minutes down the veterans....

Our Lutz Cottage has four bedrooms, two bathrooms and sleeps eight in about two thousand square feet. It has a pool with a screened lanai with grill and covered sitting area -- so the mosquitoes will not carry you away as you enjoy the great Florida climate.

If you are the out-doors-y type, this is where you would sip your wine. If you are Canadian, this is where you would swim in the dead of winter while Floridians would not dip a toe in the water for six months!

For bigger groups, the cottage has a Mother In Law Apartment which is a 1000 square foot two bedroom, one bathroom apartment and is separated from the main house by a locked room. If you plan ahead and book both sides, you can have a much bigger house for your group both having a complete house to themselves when wanted......and the locked room between the two can be open.

The separate Lutz Cottage Apartment has its own outside entrance and patio with grill and seating area. This is the apartment listing: VRBO Listing #810602

Also within walking distance is our Tampa Cottage, a four bedroom, two bath home:

VRBO Listing #732919

And our Tampa Bungalow, a four bedroom, two bath home:

VRBO Listing #841872

Or visit our website, http://www.tampacottage.com

The cottage has groceries and shopping close by in several directions. Dale Mabry highway with more shops than an Indian bazaar is only two miles East as is the Veterans Expressway. Three miles South West is I-275, a quick jump to Downtown, Busch Gardens, USF, St Pete and Clearwater.

Our Lutz Cottage has two king size beds and four twin beds in four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

You will love the master bathroom with its whirlpool tub, glass shower and his and her sinks.

Your guests can slum it in the spare bathroom while you enjoy the bubbles in the the jet tub. Now, don't turn on the switch to the whirlpool until the water in the tub is three inches over the back jet, or there will be a cleanup on isle nine as the water will shoot clear out of the tub!

You must agree to be smarter than the tub!

Sitting out on the lanai by the pool, you can look out at the large back yard and the trees, and if you want to throw a ball or walk the dog, this would be the place to do it.

When escaping the Florida heat, you can relax inside in the AC, and surf the web on our cottage WiFi, or watch Netflix movies on our 48 inch smart TV.

Out front, there is plenty of parking for your relatives on the driveway.

The cottage is fully equipped, so just bring your clothes and food. We supply paper towels, coffee filters and more. There is a tea kettle and a laundry room with a washer/dryer and ironing board if you stay for a while.

If you are an exercise fanatic, there are very pleasant and quiet streets that are great for walking and if you are a glutton for punishment, jogging. There is a great five mile route that we routinely cycle here too.

We have a 35 plus page custom manual detailing area attractions, beaches, restaurants and information about the house for you when you arrive.

Come and stay at our Lutz Cottage!

About Jonathan

When folks stay with us, I see a lot of dynamics that give me and them enormous satisfaction:

I have seen families getting to spend time with each other or to unite and welcome a newborn in to the world. I see graduations being celebrated with great joy. I watch families come together to grieve the loss of a loved one. I have folks visit to take the kids to Bush Gardens, or to attend a conference. Some of my guests are here working on special projects.

Through it all, I do enjoy helping them be comfortable with their families and seeing them enjoy our home and the surrounding area.

Jonathan purchased this house in 2007

This is the second time we have stayed in one of Jonathan's properties and we will definitely stay again. He and his wife make sure the houses are clean, organized, and fully stocked. Jonathan keeps the line of communication open at all times incase you need anything or if there is a problem. You truly will not go wrong staying here!

A little piece of paradise.

  • 4 of 5

My family and I enjoyed our stay at this home. It was extremely spacious and everyone had their own bedroom. The kids really enjoyed the pool. If we are ever in the Tampa area we will be sure to see if this home is available to rent again.

Great time in the Tampa area

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, the pool was definitely a bonus for the trip. We had family over for a cook-out on the built in grill. The kids absolutely loved the pool. The house was gorgeous and well kept. It's in a great location, close to restaurants and shopping. Jonathan was a gracious host, very friendly and responsive. I would highly recommend this property if you are staying in the area. I would happily stay again next time I travel to Tampa.

Wonderful family gathering at Lutz Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, spacious home with four bedrooms and two baths, one of them being a really indulgent master bath with jacuzzi and double sinks. Easily sleeps 8. Large, well-equipped kitchen. Super-clean enclosed pool with adjoining grill and outdoor table. Quick drive to downtown Tampa or Tampa International. Everything was as stated; very clean. I met one of the neighbors, who was also renting from the same owner - just a different property - and had rented our house before. House is very close to a large and beautiful Publix supermarket. We reunited our family and close friends in this house for a holiday, and the house really lent itself to a shared time that each person was misty-eyed to separate from. The owner was responsive immediately throughout our stay to any questions we had.
