  • This was an outstanding vacation. Giselle had everything all set up for us. Nice touch with the bagels, cream cheese, fresh fruit, coffee, I could go on and on. This place is beautiful and oh, so peaceful. I recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in this area.

    June 2014
  • Giselle is super awesome! Our stay was wonderful. Quiet, clean, comfortable... And stocked with fresh fruit, juice and water! For a wedding, vacay, or party: I definitely recommend this be your place.

  • This was our first experience with airbnb and we were impressed. The listing was easy to find and we were so happy to find something perfectly suited for our stay in Brandon, Florida.

    The accommodation is lovely. It was nice to walk into a well lit, clean and attractive room. Giselle met us in the driveway and directed us around back to the "Casita" room that is cabana like and opens out to the large lanai and pool area. There was soft music playing as she showed us around our little home away from home. The kitchenette has a microwave, toaster, Keurig and mini-fridge. There are stocked cabinets with dishes, glassware, silverware, linens, etc. Giselle also provided the Keurig cups in several varieties and stocks the mini fridge with a few basics like bagels and cream cheese, water, juice, milk and coffee cream. There was a large bowl of fresh fruit on the dining table and we enjoyed it very much! The kitchenette does have a sink with a drainboard and there is a little dining table with chairs. We enjoyed the large and comfortable sofa every evening as we caught up on our reading and relaxed after our busy days in the area. The bed is comfortable. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower and plenty of space to put away your toiletries. There is a large wardrobe in the room to put away clothes and shoes. All in all, it was perfect for us and we loved the country feel. It is situated on a large piece of property that sits back off the road and populated with many large trees. We loved the quiet of the place. It's a peaceful oasis in the middle of town. Of course, the pool was icing on the cake as they say. We spent every morning out on the lanai by the pool enjoying the birds singing and looking out at the beautiful property.

    Giselle is so gracious and helpful without being intrusive. We really appreciated her thoughtfulness and the care she takes to make (email hidden) to stay. We look forward to returning on our future visits to the Brandon area.

  • We have nothing but good things to say about this place. The pool suite was absolutely beautiful, the stocked fridge and fruit basket was a classy touch. Giselle was very sweet and it was a pleasure to meet and talk to her. There was no TV but surprisingly it was actually very relaxing. My wife wished that our bathroom was like that, the towels were great (tempted to take them home with us). Giselle told me where she ordered them and I will ordering some shortly. The bed was very comfortable and we slept very well. We never used the pool but we did relax on the deck. The grounds were a welcome retreat from a busy day of adventuring in Tampa. It was like a magically forest in the midst of the big city. I would strongly recommend staying here if you are in the area. If we ever come back to the Tampa area, I would definitely try to get reservations to stay here again. Thank you very much Giselle!!

  • 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.

    March 2014
  • If you are in Tampa Florida this is the place to visit! Giselle (email hidden) 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.

    February 2014
  • 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.

    January 2014
  • 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.
