The Space

The space includes a bedroom with a queen bed, large walk in closet, and spacious bathroom all separated by a hallway with a separating door for privacy. Please be aware that this is our living space, so please excuse the personal items/storage in the bedroom/closet. The space includes a small mini-fridge, but you are welcome to use our common amenities including our refrigerator, washer, dryer, etc. Please just ask us for more details or instructions. We keep the space very clean and do our best to accommodate any special requests. With vaulted ceilings there's plenty of room to breathe. Very spacious...not to mention the friendly kitten you'll find wandering around.

Guest Access

As a guest you'll have access to the community pool, game room equipped with a pool table, 24 hour gym, and tennis courts. Feel free to also use our balcony and electric grill (as long as you clean up after yourself!)

Interaction with Guests

The shared space is where we live, so we will be around, but we're friendly, fun, and if you're the social type we might invite you to a glass of wine and a board game. If you like to stay to yourself, that's fine too. You're not obligated to interact with us by any means!

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is quiet and spacious, but there's also a lot to do! There's a mall less than a mile away, a beer pub, Irish bar, plenty of wonderful places to eat, or if you're really feeling adventurous, downtown Tampa, Ybor city, and Tampa SoHo are just a quick drive away!

Getting around

There is a public bus route for easy public transportation. I admittedly have not had much experience with it, but a few of our guests have been able to get around via the bus without any issues. There is a pick up location just outside of our apartment complex. We do have a pair of roller blades...or if you're willing to throw us money for gas, we might just give you a ride.

Other Things to Note

*Please be aware, there is a $25 same day booking fee.

Happy Travels!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Lovely view, great to be able to come and go with gate key access. Clean rooms. Our schedules didn't allow much interaction and since we were visiting family it worked out fine. When we did interact, James was friendly and unobtrusive. Wifi access availability was great.

  • James and Ashlea were both hospitable guests who were easy to talk to, relaxed, and very welcoming. The room was as described, and the neighborhood was safe and secure. Thanks again for the wonderful weekend!

  • Had an amazing experience staying in the apartment. Incredibly comfortable and a great view! Lots of privacy if that is what you want and the owners were amazing in accommodating me coming in later at night. Seriously a great place with great hosts. I highly recommend it!

  • I had a great time staying here. James and Ashlea are awesome and the room was perfect

  • I had a great stay here -- it was a beautiful location, and a clean, comfortable, and private room. The #8 bus to and from downtown was reliable and friendly, and gave me a chance to see some of Tampa. James and Ashlea were friendly and helpful. Thanks again!

  • We really enjoyed staying at James' apartment. It is located in a gated apartment complex overlooking the beautiful scene as shown in the picture. His apartment is on the third set of stairs and I just know if we had stayed longer, I probably could have gotten more in shape. It was a lovely experience and they were wonderful hosts and Baily was a bonus. She is a cool cat and was good company. We were in Tampa for hockey tournaments (senior hockey). We are looking forward to staying at James' apartment again. Loved the experience!

    April 2014
  • Very nice experience with James and Ashlea! My wife and daughter enjoyed their stay. Room was clean, quiet and area was very safe. Communication was was very good. We would stay with them again any time!!! Great AirBnB experience!

  • A great place to stay, very quiet and comfortable and bus service anywhere if you don't mind the waiting. Everything you really need is close by, especially if you like good beer at World of Beer.
