  • Teresa & Robert's cottage is a lovely and serene oasis set amid gorgeous oak trees and other incredible Florida flora. The accommodation space was spotless and inviting and offered us a fantastic home base from which to experience all that Tampa has to offer, especially given its central location. The kitchen area, with its numerous windows, let in lots of Florida sunlight and the finishes (granite countertop, slate floors, stainless steel appliances) made us feel we were in a luxury apartment). Robert's morning gift of amazing Cuban coffee along with the well-stocked kitchen (yogurt, fruit, bread, jam, nachos, etc.) made our 6-night stay a delight. Teresa & Robert are lovely people who were available to answer any questions we had about the area and provided warm hospitality. Thoroughly enjoyed staying here!

  • Beautiful private and serene setting, very clean and true to the pictures. The home is close to everything, downtown Tampa, St. Pete, Clearwater, but also has some great places within walking distance - Cappy's for New York Style pizza and the Independent micro brewery! Robert and Teresa are sweet, gentle souls with a lot of knowledge, which they were gracious in sharing. Highly recommended!

  • I found Robert and Teresa to be most hospitable. Everything was ready and very comfortable during my week long stay. Robert was very sociable and willing to have a conversation or leave me to work when I needed to. The living space is very relaxing and surrounded by nature. The property is near everything I needed to do, and within walking distance to a couple of good eateries/pubs. The neighborhood was completely quiet any time I was around and I had no concerns for my property or person. I would gladly go back the next time I'm in Tampa to enjoy the area along with Robert and Teresa.

  • Robert and Teresa were AMAZING hosts! The studio was incredibly clean and well-kept. We had fresh bread and snacks waiting for us when we got there and Robert brought over a fresh carafe of Cuban coffee every morning. We couldn't be happier. Highly recommend. Location is excellent as well. 5-20 minutes from each of the major breweries in the Tampa area (if that's your thing) and 10 mins from downtown.

  • This is a great little place. Quiet and tucked away in a lovely neighborhood. Robert and Teresa are wonderful hosts, very helpful and friendly. And they filled the fridge with lovely snacks and drinks.

  • Charming space in a hip neighborhood. Close to lots of great bars and restaurants that represent the emerging Tampa craft beer scene. Unfortunately we did not get to meet Teresa, but Robert was a very generous and entertaining host. He stocked the cottage with snacks, coffee, etc., and gave us great tips on where to go, all of which we took and enjoyed.

  • We enjoyed a wonderful four nights in Robert's and Theresa's adjacent apartment. Robert went out of his way to suggest local bars and restaurants after hearing I enjoy craft beer. We were graciously provided with rich excellent coffee every morning and a kitchen stocked for breakfast. The location is ideal with easy access to main roads and the airport. We enjoyed beer at the Independent which is just a short walk away and a great meal at the Mermaid Tavern, also nearby.

  • My husband and I stayed 4 nights in the cottage studio. All we can say is; if ever in Tampa stay with Robert and Theresa! Its a fantastic little cottage studio, the kitchen is first class top modern, the bedrom with the best bed we slept in during all our visits to the US. All is clean and there is much space for clothes and suitcases and so on. Above all its elegant and tasteful and in the same time quiet and peaceful. The morningcoffee and all we got for breakfast made an extra and much appreciated touch. Robert is a great host, easy to communicate with and respectful and welcoming in the same time. Robert`s interest in gardening communicated well with our own, and we learned a lot from him that we didn`t know before. Thanks again and we hope to stay in touch and if we ever come back to Tampa we hope you can stay with you.

  • Above and beyond. We had a wonderful experience. Clean, modern, cozy - but all in a place filled with historic character. We felt right at home (well, except for the fact that weather was beautiful -- we weren't used to that being from Michigan). The fridge was specifically stocked with healthy goodies -- started each day with breakfast and a carafe of freshly brewed coffee just for me. Thank you for that special touch Robert! We also loved the neighborhood and the park just down the street. It was a restful, relaxing vacation. Thanks again!
