Our unit is in popular Midtown 5 minutes from downtown & the Capitol, 10 minutes from FSU & FAMU and within walking distance of a huge selection of restaurants, boutiques, Publix, CVS, post office, UPS, 3 fitness centers, churches and the beautiful park at Lake Ella. Consider the park your extended front yard, with gazebo, fountains, picnic tables and .6 mile paved path. The decor is a seacoast and beach theme, so even if you are in Tallahassee on business, you'll feel like you're on vacation.
The unit is shaded, but the rooms are bright and airy with both ceiling lights/fans and table lamps. The unit is well equipped with comfortable furniture, an exquisite king bed in the master bedroom, plenty of closet and drawer space, and a fully equipped kitchen. The unit is uncluttered with personal items. We didn't try to turn "our space" into "your space." We started with a beautifully updated, empty house and thoughtfully added each item for your use, comfort and enjoyment. Please let us know if we missed anything you need!
Keyless entry provides easy check-in. The entire space is yours to enjoy. The unit has a private patio with chairs, small table and gas grill. Smoking is allowed only in the patio. Feel free to take the bag chairs to the park to enjoy the beautiful views, wildlife or Food Truck Thursdays behind the Cottages at Lake Ella.

We will be accessible by text, phone or email for questions about the unit or any emergency that might arise. We travel occasionally but will respond as quickly as possible. On the rare occasion that we are inaccessible, we will provide guests with another emergency contact.
In early April and early December Monroe St becomes a staging area for our Springtime Tallahassee and Winter Festival parades. The St. Patrick's Day parade route actually circles Lake Ella, making it impossible to leave our parking lot for an hour or so. Just sit back and enjoy the antics of the St. Patty's day revelers. We will let visitors know if their stays might be impacted by these or other special events. Visitors on an extended stay of a week or longer will need to move garbage and recycling cans down to the street on Thursday and back to the unit on Friday.
Please turn down music & TVs at 10 pm
Park only in 2 spaces in front of unit. Additional parking on street.
