The perimeter is covered with a Passion vine, blooms year round with purple blooms, so hopefully inspires passion to our vacationers. Private Bathroom has been recently updated with Granite countertops and a vessel sink , the faucet is unique, we think it's very Star Trekkie and hope you enjoy using it, there is a tub and shower also.

The space

GARDEN AND SIDE YARD IS YOUR PRIVATE SPACE there is a PRIVATE side entrance, the picture on the website shows the slate path I recently installed to enable you to enjoy total anonymity. I don't get to meet a lot of my guests as they prefer their privacy and they leave their accommodations so clean I hardly know they're here. Most of my guests like to come and go as they please and I'm all for that. Your in room fridge is stocked with cheese, veggies, crackers, coffee, tea and a complimentary bottle of wine to enjoy in the garden.
PLEASE ADHERE to the ck in/out times listed under the pics. I do need time between guests to make your space totally yours and I strive for the space to look as if you're the first guests to inhabit it. I am child friendly but the house is not (too much glass) and only accommodates two adults and pet or sometimes pets. The outside garden is the perfect place to relax with squirrels and birds for company, they do their part to make this space as close to perfect as possible. I leave the keys in back under the mat in front of the French Doors which lead directly into your suite. You may check in after 3:00 PM or anytime thereafter. Also kindly remember ck out time is 11:00 AM . Please don't ask for an early ck in time or to leave your luggage or car.(Usually the current guest is using the parking space) I feel bad saying no, but I have to as almost 90% of my guests used to ask and I used to say yes and it was ALWAYS a problem.

Guest access

There is a large park across the street for walking a dog if you travel with your pet. The park has two tennis courts, a lake, Little League Baseball games, and an oval track for running laps and is about 100 yards from your front door. There is also a community pool which is seldom used but nicely maintained about 400' from your door. A vegetable market about a 1 1/2 blks, I walk there often, they have the best produce. A family owned restaurant "Gino's" is just around the corner from the mkt. Moderate price though only open in the evening. Iavaroni's the 2nd best steak restaurant in Tampa is about a mile from here, easily walkable. Berns the #1 restaurant is in S. Tampa a 20 minute drive.

Interaction with guests

You may use this vacation spot in total privacy, it's set up to be self contained, however you may see me occasionally, I'm always available for any questions or problems that may occur. My home and cell #'s are posted in your suite.

Other things to note

We have CATS and I wouldn't recommend anyone with allergies booking this. The CATS don't come in your room, but may wonder through the garden though they are skittish around people and probably won't be in the garden during your visit. I am obsessively clean, feed them upstairs, their litter box is also located upstairs behind closed doors in a bathroom with an air ventilator and maniacally maintained.
