A gem of a Tampa vacation home
Built in 1923, Erehwon Retreat is surrounded by century-old camphor and laurel oak trees, carefully designed landscapes using only native plants. Guests love how centrally located and close to Busch Gardens and the Sulphur Springs Pool. In winter months you’ll see manatees in the nearby Hillsborough River. Your host has hundreds of enjoyable adventures to suggest and of course, some of the best golf courses in the world.
What makes us special
You don’t have to take our word for this. Over 300 reviews on Airbnb, Google, Vrbo, Booking.com, TripAdvisor and TrustPilot show that our superlative Tampa holiday rentals are highly rated by visitors from the US, Canada, Germany, the UK, Denmark, Sweden and many others. Why? Because of our attention to detail:
The Erehwon Retreat Cottage was once a Model T garage, and it’s been lovingly converted to a tiny and perfect cottage, with a tranquil front porch, cozy living room, well-stocked kitchen and elegantly equipped bedroom and bathroom.
The Erehwon Retreat Bungalow shares a porch with the cottage, and has many stunning details such as an immense fireplace flanked by built-in bookshelves, and original waterfall lights. But it’s not all nostalgia. You also get WiFi, a dishwasher and a washer and dryer and great off-street parking.
What guests are saying
“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.
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. The 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
