Giselle was very warm and friendly and helpful at all times. We enjoyed staying in the poolhouse suite as it was quiet and we could come and go as we pleased. The suite itself is very comfortable with all the amenties except a TV which was a really nice change. Having a heated pool would be the only thing that would have added to our experience. We will certainly recommend this place to our friends.
If you are in Tampa Florida this is the place to visit! Giselle was a great host and created an amazing atmosphere for her guest suite. The property is huge and I only wish I had more time to spend enjoying it. This will be my first point of call whenever I'm in Tampa. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Thanks Giselle. We had a great 4 day stay at your accommodation and it was exactly as advertised. We appreciate your assistance with everything we needed. We'd recommend your place to any other travellers. Phil and Candace.
Wonderful place to stay! We were visiting friends who lived 5 miles away and due to pet allergies, my friend couldn't stay with them. The second we walked in we were relaxed. Giselle left music playing and there were the biggest, fluffiest towels waiting for us! We only used the pool once (alas), but it was glorious. We slept really well (my friend took the couch, which was absolutely fine for sleeping on). The bed is very comfortable, the bathroom lovely. I really can't say enough good things! Am recommending to friends/family if they ever visit Tampa. For a big city, we felt as though we were in the country.
A very beautiful and stunning place was everything and more very quiet and tranquil.
There was soft music playing upon our arrival the fruit bowl was very nice and overflowing the fridge was full of goodies to .
very clean would recommend to anyone
Me and my husband will stay here again when we head bk to Tampa.
A perfect place! Quiet and peaceful, under large live oak trees situated at the back of the lovely Casa Lantana estate, we found the private studio a delightful place to stay. When we arrived the room was cool and inviting with romantic music playing, there was a wonderfully overflowing fruit bowl on the table, milk, juice, bagels and more stocked in the refrigerator. The bed was very comfortable with nice quality linens and lots of pillows. The bathroom was well stocked and gracious. The place was clean and perfectly appointed.
It is apparent that the Hostess, Giselle, has excellent taste and cares about the quality of the hospitality she provides. Our stay at Casa Lantana was easy, comfortable, and peaceful. My wife and I plan to stay again and again whenever we return to the Brandon Area.
My siblings and I arranged a vacation for our parents 35th wedding anniversary. Giselle was great to work with on this. She helped to arrange a number of special surprises like chocolate covered strawberries, fresh flowers, chilled sparkling grape juice, (she even hung a banner that we sent down to greet our parents upon entering their suite!!) Upon their return, our parents had many positive things to say about Giselle and the accommodations. She was even gracious enough to give them a tour of the main house! All in all this was a great experience and i would definitely recommend Giselle and the stand alone suite accommodations to anyone. =)
What a wonderful experience! Giselle is a very gracious hostess, and the suite is absolutely lovely. It is very quiet and private location, but near everything in Brandon. The suite, itself, is beautifully decorated and clean. The bath towels are the best!!! This was our first airbnb location and we highly recommend it.
We had a nice time staying at Casa Lantana. The room was very clean and well appointed and the fruit and bagels were a nice touch. When I got back home, Giselle sent me a message that we had left a few clothing items behind and she offered to ship them back free of charge...which she did! You would never get this kind of service from a hotel. Thanks Giselle.
I absolutely LOVED our stay at Casa Lantana! Beautiful setting, elegant amenities, comfortable bed, close to plenty of activities, and a gracious host, I could not have asked for more. Giselle is great at returning calls/emails promptly and had everything set up nicely for us, from super plush towels to excellent soaps and lotions. There was also a very tasty fruit basket, bagels, juice, bottled water, tea and coffee. The pool was a very nice addition to our stay as well :) a great stay for a great value! 5 stars all the way.
