Perfect Beach Getaway!
Ruby’s Cottage #1 was the perfect place to stay! Just a few blocks to the beach in a quiet neighborhood with very little traffic and there was an ice cream shop on the way to the beach! There were lots of beach toys and was fully furnished. The inside was bigger than I thought it would be and it was very clean and cute! As soon as our 12 year old walked into her room she said “can we just live here?!” Everything was perfect and Regina worked with us when we had to cancel and reschedule due to Covid. The owners are very nice and thoughtful to leave us a bottle of wine! The beach was perfect and not overcrowded. We all loved our week at the beach and will definitely return to Ruby’s cottage again!

College Graduation Gift
I rented this place as a college graduation gift for my Daughter and her boyfriend. Both of them loved the place, the area and had such a wonderful experience. I would certainly rent from these owners in the future. Very quick to respond to emails and pleasant to work with. Thank you from Kentucky!!!!!

We LOVED Ruby's Cottage #1 - It Rocks!
Our family of four wanted to do something different for Winter Break this year and decided to go to Florida. We've done the Disney and Universal thing before and wanted something a little more low key. After a lot of research we settled on the Tampa area and started our search for our perfect getaway. And we found it at Ruby's. It was awesome. The pictures don't do it justice. Everything we could possibly need was provided. We especially appreciated the beach accessories: cart, chairs, bikes, kayak, and cooler. It was only a few minutes walk to the beach and access was so easy. We were also walking distance to lots of great places to eat and hang out. We only wish we had more time to spend there. We will definitely be returning to the area and when we do, we will make sure to stay at Ruby's Cottage #1 again.

Ruby's Cottage #1 is great!
Interior decorating was excellent and made the cottage feel cozy and like home. Host left a bottle of wine for us as well as coffee, bottled water, granola bars - all of which were very appreciated! Communication with host was excellent! Beach toys were a great plus too! We would definitely recommend this place! Thank you!
