Best Bed and Breakfast in Tampa Bay!.
Upon arrival I was greeted by Frank, who escorted me to my California Mission-style cottage where brandy had been poured and a chocolate truffle waited to be devoured. As Frank gave me the tour, my friend arrived and we were amazed at how beautiful our "home away from home" was. The Meranova far exceeded our expectations in charm and elegance. Every detail had been addressed and our cottage was immaculate! Coffee was ready to be brewed at the touch of a button, filtered water chilled in the fridge, homemade brownies were calling my name, city maps and local brochures waited to be perused, the pool was warmed to 87 degrees, and the gardens beckoned with their beauty. I instantly felt the tension in my overworked body subside as I happily drifted into the world of Meranova.
Feeling no great urgency to leave this fabulous environment, we left the unpacking for later and explored just outside our door. From our private patio we hesitated just long enough to figure out which way to venture to take in the splendor of the gardens, the draw of the gazebo made it easy. The gazebo is enchanting, as is the seating under a huge shade tree. The landscaping invites you to turn every corner and explore every nook and cranny to see what surprises are awaiting discovery. David has created a masterpiece that rivals most botanical gardens!
Breakfast is served each morning where you desire?your room, your patio, the orchid garden, or the gazebo. We chose the gazebo and were not disappointed. Frank and David went out of their way to fulfill our request for one vegetarian and one vegan meal. Each morning started with perfectly brewed coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice, soy yogurt, fresh fruit and an assortment of delicious grain breads. As the vegetarian, I found the Scrambled Eggs with Summer Salsa delicious and the Putanesca with Shirred Eggs was scrumptious!
We decided to call this our "First Annual?, then decided on bi-annual, but even that's too far away!
This is heaven!
Essentially Perfect. The Meranova is the best B&B I have ever encountered! The room (a palatial suite) was beautifully decorated and immaculate, and very complete down to a handful of thoughtfully selected CDs and a deck of cards! The breakfasts were superb. The innkeepers, David and Frank are warm, very thoughtful and friendly but never intrusive. This is a jewel and a prize and I'm not normally given to superlatives.
