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.

About this listing

PRIVATE ENTRANCE Suite includes Private Bath, Microwv/Fridge, coffee, tea, wine to enjoy in your garden also an electric grill just outside your door. Community pool, Large park across the street 2 tennis courts, lake & jogging oval. etc. your city oasis in Tampa. There is an Italian restaurant 2 blks away and the best Steak House called Iavarone's within walking distance. Also several vegetarian restaurants and a Whole Foods in neighborhood.

The space

The space is set up to be totally private, there is a separate 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 3:00PM 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.

I can not say enough about my stay. Lynne had everything prepared and then some really nice touches. The place is secluded yet close to everything. She is friendly yet gives you your space and doesn't bother you at all. She's quick to respond to even those minimal requests and always willing to please.

Response from Lynne:
I will never forget your kindness and wonderful attitude, thank you so much for putting the new bed together for me. Plus did all their own washing and left the NEATEST EVER place, I can't believe they were here for almost 2 weeks. Please bring the pups by for a visit when they arrive in the fall.

Lynne's Garden Suite is the best getaway place of you are looking for quite and want to soak in some sun in the garden. Her attention to detail from the bottle of wine to the cheese, and coffee is the best. I highly recommend and when I come back to Tampa will only be staying at Lynne's.

Response from Lynne:
Thank you so much for the card, it's so special that you would take the time to get it on your vacation. The Naruda poem was just what I needed and one I had not read. It caused me to drop everything and spend time reading one of his books. I can't thank you enough. You are a special being.

Lynne did everything she said in her post and more. I told her why I was coming and she had everything I needed in the room when I got there. Neighborhood is a private community and very quiet. It was like staying with Family! I would stay there again.

The AirBnB was very nice! My girlfriend and I had total privacy and we even got a complimentary bottle of wine and some snacks. The garden outside is very peaceful and the parking spot really comes in handy. One of my most favorite AirBnB stays based on price and value. Thank you Lynne!

Lynne's home is far and away our favorite Air BNB we've stayed at so far. It's comfortable, beautiful, and Lynne is the perfect host. She's communicative, friendly, and gives you the perfect amount of space. This space was clean and well kept, and the garden area was just lovely. Check in and check out was a snap as everything was perfectly communicated in advance. The bottle of wine left on the bed was something my wife enjoyed thoroughly, and the complimentary snacks in the fridge were just wonderful - we've never been to an Air BNB with so many nice amenities for such a great price. If we're ever in Tampa and need a place to stay again, we'll be seeking Lynne out first and foremost.

Words cannot convey what a great place and what a great host Lynne is. My wife and I just stayed 2 nights and enjoyed it very much. Lynne was very helpful and quick to respond to any of our questions. The place is stocked with everything you need and more. We didn't even need to toothbrushes and toothpaste. Lynne had brand new travel kits for us. The bed was extremely comfortable. Amazing place. Will definitely stay here again!

Staying with Lynne was for us like staying with a beloved Auntie. She was so welcoming and inviting but also very respectful and gave us our space. The room is very well stocked with an excellent private bathroom. Double doors open onto the garden which is perfect for a lazy afternoon chill out. We were close to Busch Gardens which was perfect for us. We highly recommend you stay here!

I'm experiencing a rebirth through my airbnb guests, each one so interesting and well traveled. I've been in all the US states and surrounding countries but never Europe and now Europe comes to me. I've been lucky to have skied in all the western resorts and I Sky-dived for 5 years in my youth. Now I stay at home with my cats and wait for exciting travelers to come and visit. I'm also an avid reader and love offbeat movies. So come and share your stories with me.
