    Great bungalow in a wonderful neighborhood in Dixieland. We enjoyed the short walk to the park and exploring all that Lakeland has to offer.

    The house felt very cozy and appeared very clean. The Alice in Wonderland curtains when we first walked in were a bit bizarre but once we realized it was the theme of the home, it made more sense. Beds were comfortable. Plenty of towels, wash clothes, etc. Neighborhood felt safe and walkable. Try Biscuits and Benedict’s for breakfast. Lots of good restaurant options nearby

  • Not my cup of tea


    I know that Dixieland is a historical part of town but didn't want to live back in time. Bathroom was not up to standards for more than one person. Sugar aunts in the kitchen, grill was so small that grilling was out of the question. Toilet paper was so thin it only had one side. I would not recommend or stay there again. I ask the wife if I was being too critical and she said not critical enough. Coffee tasted old but kitchen was ok except for the sugar aunts.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi there, we value providing an excellent experience for our guests, and we would like to share some insights from the homeowner:
    -With an illustrious history spanning almost 90 years, our property complies with all current building codes. It's important to note that any modifications must align with the guidelines set forth by the Historical Heritage Association, given the property's esteemed status as a historical landmark in Dixieland.
    -Having undergone recent renovations, our property showcases modern amenities such as a tiled shower, toilet, and vanity. The photos faithfully represent the inclusion of a sink, toilet, and generously sized shower. Despite its age, this residence stands out as newer and more spacious than many neighboring options.
    -We have established routine pest control services, and although managing sugar ants can pose challenges, we have traps readily available upon request. Whether the concern pertains to pests or cleaning, rest assured that our dedicated teams will promptly address and resolve any issues.
    -A previous guest left behind the grill, and while it's not officially listed as an amenity, we offer an alternative with a large fire pit for outdoor communal fires.
    -Communication is key, and we encourage guests to bring concerns to our attention during their stay for prompt resolution. Unfortunately, delayed feedback limits our ability to address issues comprehensively.
    -While we currently offer one roll of toilet paper recently changed to a new type, we suggest that guests, based on their exact preferences, may conveniently purchase additional supplies just across the street at Walgreens.
    -We suggest guests bring their own coffee, as Dunkin’ Donuts medium roast is a local favorite. This allows for a personalized coffee experience tailored to individual preferences.
    -Your feedback is valued, and we remain committed to promptly addressing any additional concerns that may arise during our guests' stay.
    Our commitment to all our guests is to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests as evidenced in all other reviews.
