Alyson told me, she wanted people to fall in love with St. Pete. And she did an amazing job! She was very friendly and caring. She took me out to her favourite dining and hang out places, offered good advice on what to do during the daytime. Gladly she even had time to pick me up from the airport. Her place is lovely, very comfortable and clean and her cats are adorable. Big plus was a bike I could borrow to get downtown. I very much enjoyed staying with her and absolutely recommend her to everyone.
I had a very nice stay at Alyson's charming sunny home. It turned out that we had actually met before several years ago. Alyson provided great instructions for finding her place and made me feel very much at home. Everything was very clean, comfortable and homey. I slept like a baby in the bed and enjoyed a nice cup of espresso in the morning before heading out. I would highly recommend a stay at her place and hope to return again.
I was in this amazing home with amazing owner: Alyson!!!
I felt like she was my friend from years.
I'll surely come back and wait for her in Italy
About the house it is in a good location, a very confortable bed, complete kitchen, fantastic music, good bathroom, 2 friendly cats.
Alyson ist eine nette Gastgeberin. Sie hat uns alle nötigen Informationen gegeben und uns Tipps gegeben, was wir Unternehmen können. Die Unterkunft an sich war auch ok. Wir hätten aber die Wohnung nicht genommen, wenn wir vorher gewusst hätten, dass es zwei Katzen gibt, da meine Schwester allergisch ist. (Das Zimmer war eine Katzenfreie Zone und Alyson hat uns einen Lufterfrischer angeboten)
I am sorry that the allergies affected your stay but I would like to mention that I do include that I have cats and air purifiers in the details of my listing. However, in the future, I will make sure to verify with my guests that they know I do have cats. Hope you both have a great rest of your trip. :-)
The stay with alyson was great. We had nice Talks,she showed us some places in the City and gave us some nice hints. Her home is cozy and our room was nice and clean. The bed was great!
Her place is beautiful and well located, the guest room is comfortable.The apartment is close to Downtown and Tampa, but far enough, in a quiet and safe area, to relax. It was a good feeling going back after my meetings at the end of the day, like going back home. Alyson is a great hostess and person (best hostess/host ever). Thank you Alyson for your hospitality.
About the Host, Alyson
I am an intelligent, witty, fun, yet a bit sarcastic kind of gal. I generally have a positive attitude, compassionate heart and enjoy expanding my mind. I am not a fan of drama, unless I am watching a movie. I detest close minded people and people that do not know how to compromise (at least a little bit).
I love to travel and have traveled around the US, Europe, Africa and Asia. I have only experienced a tiny bit of the world and am looking forward to seeing more of it. I truly enjoy wandering around new places without a set plan and happening upon new experiences - such as a hidden local restaurant or view point.
I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I love to go out on the town but also love spending quality time at home.
When I go out - I enjoy going to dinner, sporting events, art festivals, concerts, playing tourist in my own town, museums, dancing, walking on the beach, going to movies and more. I guess I am up for just about anything.
When I stay in - I enjoy relaxing, reading, watching movies, cooking, hosting casual dinner parties,long interesting conversations and more.
