It will be tough to keep this to five hundred words--what a phenomenal stay! My fiancée and I had to rent for a month while we waited to close on our house. Robert and Teresa were incredibly responsive and helpful in not only providing a discounted rate but also in the process of the reservation. My first phone call with Robert resulted in an engaging conversation about music--a taste of the many soulful conversations we would soon have. When we finally arrived at Robert and Teresa's beautiful house, Robert greeted us with snacks and a very clean, cozy, and (important for Tampa) cool (temperature and style-wise) apartment. The place is impeccably decorated, reflecting the various interests and passions of the hosts--very Zen. The apartment is very private with its own entrance. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen well-stocked and very functional. Robert's beautiful gardens really add to the laid back atmosphere. Robert and Teresa are two hosts that cannot help but want to provide and make your stay as relaxing and positive as possible. Robert offered everything from his own personal tea to clippings from his personal garden. Staying here is why I love AirBnB--not only did I get a wonderful deal on lodging, I made friends. Do yourself a favor and stay here if you are visiting the Tampa area--close to everything, yet it remains a tucked away piece of paradise.
Robert and Teresa's cottage was a charming and peaceful place to stay for our business/pleasure trip to Tampa. We ventured downtown, to St. Pete, and Tarpon Springs during our stay, and found that their house was centrally located to anything you'd want to see in the Tampa Bay area. It's also mere steps to a lovely park on their street. The neighborhood of South Seminole Heights has its own trendy/hipster charm going on with great local places to eat that we enjoyed. Robert was very friendly and brought over hot coffee each morning at our requested time (and even in to-go cups on the morning we left)!
Teresa and Robert are exuberantly welcoming. Delicious coffee in the AM delivered to your door if you want it and every sweetness they can manage. The place is lovely: clean, airy and comfortable, the neighborhood fun and there is a great place to walk nearby. Highly recommend!
Our trip to Tampa turned out to be a wonderful experience. The best part was meeting Robert and Theresa. They are both humble and welcoming.
Robert brings coffee every morning which taste wonderful, and he also made tea for my boyfriend. When we arrived they had snacks waiting for us, and the fridge had some groceries as well. Robert and Theresa's Airbnb was quiet, and it reminded me of a mind, body and spirit retreat. There was no TV, so my boyfriend and I were able to appreciate each others presence as we also socialized with Rob and Theresa.
Our goal was to visit Tampa, but at the same time we also made friends. Rob and Theresa are very special people, and it is very rare to find people that are open to socializing with our age group. We immediately felt comfortable with them as they made us feel like family. Robert and Theresa, we send you both many blessings and success with your Airbnb, and we hope that all the positive energy you gave to us, returns with a lifetime of positive surprises.

Our stay was great. Both Teresa and Robert were very friendly and helpful. The coffee delivery in the morning was a nice touch (and it's good coffee). The place was very clean. I found the futon mattress to be incredibly comfortable, though my boyfriend (who prefers firmer mattress) did have a little bit of difficulty sleeping on it. The location worked out perfectly. We were able to get to Channelside, Ybor and Hyde Park all quite quickly. Would stay here again.
Peaceful. Heavenly. Sanctuary are just a few words to describe the environment, atmosphere and hospitality of the hosts I was honored to meet and abide in their beautiful safe haven. The park was beautiful and only a couple steps out my front door. The water and park environment gave me so much energy and made my morning and night rituals for exercise easy!!! The charming kitchen faces gorgeous frees with the sun shining in to make me want to face everyday with gratitude. This place is more than a nights rest it is a rejuvenation, restoration and renewal of mind body and soul. No amount of money could have truly valued the experience I took away from this stay. I hope you all can experience the joy these people bring with their food conversation and divine atmosphere they have created for you to experience . I have traveled the world gone to 16 countries toured nationally stayed in 5 star hotels resort.. The ritz you name it !!! and this was by far the best place I have ever stayed in. No words could justify my recommendation, just show up.... And the rest will fall into place for you for whatever reason you are looking to lay your head for however long your stay.
We enjoyed this great attached studio with off the street parking. The location was convenient and the community was lovely. Robert brought us fresh-brewed coffee from a local roaster daily and generously provided snacks for our stay. The kitchen was fully stocked and the bed was simple but comfortable. Everything was very clean and we immediately felt right at home. The cottage was 10 minutes from downtown Tampa and about 40 minutes from Clearwater and St. Pete. Robert made great suggestions about nearby bars and restaurants. We would highly recommend this cottage for your stay!
