What guests are saying

Tampa vacation“This place was amazing, and my boyfriend and I miss it! 5 out of 5 stars! For two people, it is quite spacious and extremely comfortable, with a bedroom, a bathroom, kitchen, and living room area. Each room had everything we needed, even including a French press in the kitchen for making coffee.  The host, Henry, came by frequently to make sure our paper supplies – ie, toilet paper, disinfectant wipes, paper towels, etc – were still stocked.

He also came by once a week to collect towels, sheets, and other linens that needed laundering and was all in all an extremely attentive host. He also paid attention to the needs that the pandemic would present, such as providing a UV sanitizer box that held the keys in the living room.”

Great reviews for Erehwon Retreat

The review continues, “Each room was neat, clean, and well-decorated, with lots of well-thought out details like a 1920’s vintage theme.  There are lots of DVDs in alphabetical order, a power bank with chargers for a variety of phones, and more. I spent many wonderful mornings sitting in the living room looking out of three walls of windows into the beautiful all native plant foliage on the property, watching the rain glance off of the many leaves and flowers. tempa accomodationsThe whole property itself is basically a garden, one that exemplified lots of care and thought on the part of the host and which we had many lovely conversations about.

Outside of sheer comfort, the area’s location is also very central to many parts of Tampa.  It is so close to Florida Ave.  Important details such as parking, WiFi, etc., were no issue. I would highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Tampa, and I’m very thankful to Henry for the lovely stay that we’ve had. The next time we visit Tampa, this will be the first place we think of!”  – Chrisley, Cottage Guest 08/30/2020
