The suite was perfect and just as described. We had a wonderful stay and if back in the area again would book again. I would recommend staying here to any of my friends and clients.

Giselle's place was a wonderful and peaceful stay. It was in an area that you could find what you needed but also nicely secluded, comfortable, and private.

The suite at Casa Lantana is beautifully kept and I loved how it was secluded. Gisselle was a great host. She provided us with anything that we needed. First walking into the suite was nice! There was music playing and it smelled so good. For those who are looking for a private place to relax and enjoy scenery, this place is perfect. It is a little far from beaches if that is what someone would like to do. Having the pool right outside our door was nice too but we did not get to enjoy it fully because of the weather. My first airbnb experience was still wonderful!

This is a great place to stay. You are centrally located in Brandon but once you turn into the property you feel like you are in the country. The pool house and property are very nice. Giselle is a very gracious hostess. She was very helpful able to answer any questions we had about the area, restaurants, shopping, sites, beaches, etc. I would highly recommend Casa Lantana.

This was an amazing first experience with Airbnb! It's definitely going to be hard to top. I admire Giselle's hospitality and attention to detail. The place was absolutely beautiful, and I could not have asked for a better location. We had a great time and look forward to a future stay here!!

A little piece of old time Florida. The beautiful main house and yard is used for wedding events. Giselle is a very reliable and is professional to work with. We were delighted to stay in this quiet little pool house that was really nice, clean, and had a comfy bed and nice quality linens. The kitchen has lots of cabinets and is a good size, but is not equipped for cooking meals. That said, if you like to eat out there are plenty of good choices and grocery stores near by. Pool is not heated, It is two steps out the door! We would have used it if the weather was just a bit warmer. Just a note: If you have allergies to scents, be sure to let Giselle know. The place has a unique smell from the cleaner or an air freshener. It is a pretty strong smell.
