Relax in our cute little bungalow, nestled in the heart of Seminole Heights! Walking distance to awesome restaurants, the river, parks, and even breweries. Single room with a queen bed and private bath. Self-serve coffee, tea, and breakfast items in the morning if you're so inclined!

Guest Access

As a guest in our home, you will have your own private bed and bath, and that is the area you are reserving. Shared areas include the front and back porches, and the kitchen on request. The back deck overlooks our Florida backyard and has ample seating if you're interested.

Please keep in mind that this is our home, and while we try our best to keep it as clean and tidy as possible, it is still a house, not a hotel. We try to make sure that our whole home is as clean as it can be while being lived in by a couple who works long hours, but the guest room and bath are always cleaned and sanitized between guests.

Interaction with Guests

Neither of us have "regular" schedules, so it's likely one of us will be home at most times, but we tend to keep to ourselves when we have guests, except to cook and occasionally watch TV in the shared living room area.

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood has won Neighborhood of the Year for at LEAST the past 3 years, and for good reason. Seminole Heights residents pride themselves on hospitality, and it shows. In addition, we have many esteemed restaurants within a small radius of our home. There is a coffee shop opening up very soon, as well as another microbrewery. Love vinyl? We have a shop for that. Love bikes? We have a shop for that. Want a straight-razor haircut and hot foam shave? You guessed it, we have a shop for that.

Getting around

There is a bus route a brief walk from our house that takes you downtown. It does not run super late, though.

Other Things to Note

Our home was built in 1926, so it is an old, historic house. We have modernized plumbing, central AC and heat, wi-fi, and the like. That being said, like most older bathrooms, the one saved for you doesn't work like new. There is ample water pressure, but the sink (currently) only runs cold, and the toilet is low-flow.

We also have two cats and a dog that we share our home with. The cats may be out and about, so if you are severely allergic, we may not be the place for you. The dog (Callie) will be kept in our room during your stay, and none of them are allowed in our guest bedroom, even when we have vacancy.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Becky and Aaron were wonderful host. We had our own room and bathroom and a shared kitchen living area. Prior to our arrival Becky asked what we ate and stopped by the grocery store to pick up breakfast muffins and fruit for my daughter. They have 2 loving cats that I bonded with over Doritos, they are fun to watch. From the moment we arrived, we were treated like friends and really enjoyed our time with the Rizzo's!

  • I made a last minute booking which went smoothly. Becky was quick to respond and provided all the information I needed to check-in late that night. Excellent experience! Everything was as detailed.

  • Listing exceeded my expectations- Great central location. I could get to TPA airport on surface streets and not far at all from downtown. The hosts were super helpful/friendly and I was lucky enough to meet them briefly on my way out the next morning. They were very prompt helping me out duriong my stay.,(we texted). And even though I am very allergic to cats, it was not much of an issue for me. The house has hardwood floors (no carpet) and cats stay around living room(which I guess had a little cat dander) but the room door was closed so cat dander there was minimal/none. bed was very comfortable, slept very well. room was very clean, bathroom was next to room on hallway and reasonably adequate. would definitely stay there again. Thanks Becky and Aaron for being excellent hosts. Next time I am in town we should go (email hidden) at The Independent on Florida Street. Great place...

  • I was in town for a training and so was not in the home much but when I was it was incredibly comfortable and the hosts were great. The communication was clear from the time I booked online all the way until I left and the hosts were incredibly friendly. Great place to stay.

  • Becky and Aaron were great! They were so relaxed and welcoming. The house is charming and the bed was great!

    The neighborhood is an interesting mix of restored, contemporary and on the way to being restored. We loved it.

    We wanted an ethnic food experience. Becky and Aaron knew just where to send us for a wonderful experience.

    Our only regret is that we didn't have time to stay longer. We highly recommend Becky and Aaron 's Airbnb.

  • Becky and Aaron made our stay great from the get go. Fantastic and timely communication, a great room, and Becky was nice enough to take my traveling companion to the beach while I was working.

    Their home is clean, comfortable and a fantastic value. I highly recommend them if you're planning on being in the Tampa area.

  • Becky and Aaron were very welcoming and accommodating. My flight didn't get in until late and it was fine that we came back after they were asleep. Also Aaron gave us a great taco recommendation near by! Thanks!

  • What a lovely couple! they made me feel truly welcome at their house giving me lots of advice on all the best places to eat and inviting me along when they went out for dinner themselves. The house is in a quiet residential part of north Tampa, with good accessibility to downtown Tampa, St Pete's and Clearwater, and it is easy to find parking on the street.
    ...One more thing be sure to visit their favorite Cuban restaurant it's fantastic!

We are from the beautiful historic neighborhood of Seminole Heights located in the heart of sunny Tampa, FL! I'm a photographer by trade, and he's a deputy. We base all of our vacations around eating- total foodies here! We love craft beer, and I homebrew my own.
