We enjoyed this great attached studio with off the street parking. The location was convenient and the community was lovely. Robert brought us fresh-brewed coffee from a local roaster daily and generously provided snacks for our stay. The kitchen was fully stocked and the bed was simple but comfortable. Everything was very clean and we immediately felt right at home. The cottage was 10 minutes from downtown Tampa and about 40 minutes from Clearwater and St. Pete. Robert made great suggestions about nearby bars and restaurants. We would highly recommend this cottage for your stay!
Driving into this charming historic Tampa area was a beautiful drive. The trees, the river and the homes are quite special. Upon arriving, the space is even more lovely in person. You walk into a sacred space that is pristinely clean, well decorated and has a wondrous sense of ownership. We were greeted every morning with a fresh pot of coffee and a big smile. Robert and Teresa have incredible energy and it was a true joy to be in their space, it felt like home. The location was very easy to get around, we fished at the river (walking distance), ventured to down town and the Florida fairgrounds. Wonderful eateries are really close as well as a few special craft beer bars.
We (my 9 year old son and I) had a wonderful stay with Robert and Teresa. We arrived after midnight but Robert came out to greet us and show us the way. Every morning they would bring the lovely hibiscustea (way too much for me to drink by myself :-)) . The place was nice, clean, comfortable and welcoming, nicely decorated. There was food and drinks in the fridge for us to use, they had made a full basket of chips and things for my son, which I think was a lovely thought. We spent some time talking to Robert. Overall a good en worthwhile experience. When we are in Tampa again, I sure hope this cottage will be available to us again. Thank you Robert and Teres and good luck with all your plans!
More like a sanctuary and peaceful retreat escape!! I'd go to Tampa again as a retreat only to stay here. Great host; great morning coffee service; great location; great surprise of food and snacks stocked. Highly recommended!
Our stay in Tampa was awesome! The suite is really great, super comfortable, and Robert was a great host. He made sure we had food stocked in the refrigerator, brought coffee to us in the morning, and also provided some pretty great conversation :). Would definitely stay here again.
This is such a cute place! The kitchen is great with the big windows. The Independent is a great place to go for a drink just down the road. Robert is a great host who brews wonderful hibiscus tea and brings you great coffee every morning! I recommend it!
