The Space

Your guestroom is furnished with a queen size bed with memory foam mattress, closet space and small dresser. It fits 2 comfortably. 1 additional guest can stay in the office with a twin sized memory foam bed. I have 2 small dogs and a cat, but they are not allowed in the guest bedrooms.

Guest Access

You'll have access to the kitchen, washer and dryer. I have a coffee maker and hair dryer. Most bathroom essentials are provided if you forget something. I can include breakfast if you're interested, just ask.

Interaction with Guests

I work full time but I can always find fun events and help you travel like a local!

June 8-15 special: $300 for the week! I think you have to book it to see the discount.

The Neighborhood

Seminole Heights is a historical funky neighborhood with big old oak trees and unique 1920's bungalows.

Getting around

The bus stop is a 4-5 minute walk. Parking is always available on the street and it's free & safe. Taxi from the airport runs about $22. I do have bikes to loan - free with security deposit.

Other Things to Note

Well behaved pets are allowed, but since I have small dogs and a cat - probably no large or aggressive dog breeds.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Very good place to stay! Clean and tidy house in a nice residential area! Janette is a perfect host offering any kind of help you may need! Thanks Janette!

  • This bungalow was clean, comfortable and situated in a quant neighborhood. Janette was friendly and helpful.

  • To begin with, Janette is very accommodating. Her home is warm and inviting, plus the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. It was better than the bed back in my home. Pumpkin and Chedder were a delight to be around. We will always stay here when we return. Also, extremely pet friendly.

  • Janette's home made for a wonderful Tampa visit. Clean, comfortable, safe neighborhood, on street parking, a short walk to a nice restaurant that's open late as well as a coffee shop that's friendly. Nice neighborhood, with lots of individual flair. Slept well and Janette was accommodating to our rather erratic schedule. She went out of her way to accommodate our son who was traveling with us as well. Kudos.

  • Cute house, very comfortable bed, and spotlessly clean. Only a few miles from Downtown Tampa, which is easily accessible by bus or through a fairly inexpensive cab ride. Would definitely stay here again if I were in the area.

  • Janette is a great host! She manages to make you feel like at home. Her two pets - Pumpkin and Rocky - are ridiculously cute. Janette has a very stylish, modern, neat and very clean home with a great room for the guests. She could give us a lot of advice what to do in Tampa and the surroundings when needed. We would always love to come back!

  • You won't want to leave. Clean enough to eat off the floor, even after Pumpkin (resident canine) licks it up. A wonderful home, shambala, shangra-la, heaven on earth, what have you. Peaceful, tranquil. You might look up from the couch and see a white doe staring back at you. A rare place on earth that's seems a doorway between this world and the next. I don't know. Prose just does not fit to explain. Imagine the peace you feel when having been gone on a long journey and coming to a strange humble place, you eerily find yourself at home - safe like you were when you were a kid and your parents slept in the other room. Can't say enough about the place. Funky bungalow, old charming neighborhood, pristine condition, open zen like space, cute adorable fuzzy animals, and Janette - well - she is the type of angelic people - beautiful, intelligent, wise, prudent, charitable, etc. You really can't go wrong staying here. You really couldn't go wrong falling in love with the place and the host. Some kind of saintly refuge you'd never expect to find. An oasis. You get the picture. It's like a dwelling a place you come to and you just feel the presence of goodness. Like your grandma's house or something, but only Janette is probably not like your grandma. If a home could have an old soul, a wise worldly soul, in a youthful body. It's close to downtown Tampa, like 5 miles a few minutes on the interstate or just down a main road.The neighborhood is old but resurrecting, old facades and young life it's charming as hell. I just can't say enough about how peaceful it was to go to cruddy work all week and then come back to relax in such a peaceful place. Even when it rains, the drops sound tropical and alluring not harsh. Eh I just trying to say, this beats staying at a hotel, and i doubt you will find a cooler person to have as company if you plan to stay with someone. One of those type places you leave having felt you gained something, left with something more valuable or more than what you had when you came. Just stay here.

I love meeting new people and just hanging out with a glass of wine. Travel is big for me and I love the Airbnb concept! I've been all over the world, and Tampa is one of my favorite cities so I would love to help you discover the city while you're here. I have a cat and a small dog that will give you your space but also love to cuddle!
