The Space

N Tampa/Carrollwood residential location less than 3 miles from the Univ. of South Florida, H. Lee Moffitt Hospital & Haley Veterans Hospital, Busch Gardens 5 miles away, easy access via 275 or Dale Mabry to downtown Tampa. Quiet & comfortably furnished queen bedroom w. private bath, walk-in closet, ceiling fan, A/C, TV., desktop computer. Eat-in kitchen. Done in eclectic Americana style.
The room is ideally suited for 2 adults but, in a pinch, an inflatable mattress is available for a child.
There is an incredible music system & a hostess who will serve you a glass of wine outside on the garden patio.

ALL rooms come with mini libraries.

Guest Access

Pool and clubhouse, tennis courts, touring bicycle.
There are parking spaces for guests, marked & convenient to all townhomes. Regarding kitchen use: preparation of snacks, i.e. microwave popcorn, sandwiches, is fine but no cooking allowed.

Interaction with Guests

I let guests set the tone. I am always happy to join guests for a morning coffee if there are questions about touring around Tampa & the environs. Evenings, I offer beverages outside on the patio. I work from home so am usually on site.

The Neighborhood

My complex is very safe & secure. The pool, tennis courts and grounds are well maintained. One of Tampa's best live music & dancing spots, Skippers Smokehouse & Kaleisia Tea Lounge (popular w. USF students) are short drive away. Busch Gardens & Lowry Park Zoo are 10 min. drive. Nearby good restaurants: Vizcaya Grill & Tapas Restaurant, Jasmine Thai, Michael's Grill, First Watch.

Getting around

Number 33 bus stops @ intersection of N. Rome and W. Fletcher Avenue. Tampa International Airport (TIA) is a 20 minute drive away & I will pick you up for a $10 fee.

  • Desde el momento que llegamos hasta el momento que nos fuimos que bien la pasamos. Era mi novia y yo que estuvimos en esta locación. La señora Christa fue extremadamente generosa amable divertida y respetuosa. Nos sentimos como en casa. El lugar fue mas de lo que imaginamos. Esperamos regresar a esta locación en el futuro.

    This location is so much more than we would have imagined. Such a great host. Christa went above and beyond our expectations. She was friendly outgoing funny smart overall such a great person. Great room and neighborhood. Next time we go to tampa hopefully the room is not booked because for sure we want to go back!!!!!

  • Christa is a wonderful hostess and made the stay very pleasant after such a long drive. She is very welcoming & fun to converse with, but at the same time allowed us plenty of privacy as well. Great location in a nice quiet neighborhood. We would def love to visit Tampa & stay here again :)

  • It really was an easy and relaxing experience. Christa was very nice and welcoming. We had a great conversation and I had a very restful and peaceful sleep. I will definately try to book this room again if I need to stay in Tampa overnight. What a great value!

  • What a great staying! Christa will leave you sleep, if you made long trip, or you can chat with her. She is always helpful and willing to share things. She made a lot of traveling and staying in other people houses, so now is she providing her room in order to keep a balance in universe.

I am a university librarian helping students virtually from home. There are two housecats often found lounging on garden patio. Tennis racquets & bicycle available but in Florida's oppressive summer heat, borrow @ your own risk!
