About this listing

Welcome to Tampa Bay! The home is central to everything Tampa Bay and is 1 hour 20 minutes from Orlando. We are a married couple that lives in the home. You get exclusive use of the house apart from our bedroom. That includes two guest rooms, 1.5 bathrooms, a living and a family room, the kitchen, the dining room, the bar, and the backyard lanai / pool area. We do not utilize any of those spaces during guest stays.

The space

One room is decorated with a beach theme and opens to the heated pool and lanai. The other has a safari theme. There is a full bath located between the bedrooms for your exclusive use. There is a half-bath near the bar. We don't host more than one group at a time so you will never share space with people you aren't with.

In addition to the rooms, there is a family room with a fireplace and 50" 3D TV with XBOX 360 and several games that you are free to use. The kitchen and dining room are also yours to use during your stay. There is also a wet bar that you are free to partake from.

We have an office which you can use to plan your activities, print boarding passes, etc.

The backyard / lanai area has a heated pool and hot tub, seating at tables for 10, a dart board and a Weber charcoal kettle for grilling and barbecuing.

If you are renting a car, don't bother paying extra for a Sunpass transponder to pay for tolls, we have one you can use.

We are located in a quiet neighborhood near a golf course, tennis courts, waterfront kayak rentals, ponds, a hiking trail and a YMCA. The home is central to many area destinations:

About 5 minutes: Upper Tampa Bay Park (Rent a kayak on the Bay!)

About 15 minutes: Big Cat Rescue, Airheads, Tampa International Airport, Raymond James Stadium, Lowry Park Zoo.

About 30 minutes: Clearwater Beach, Downtown Tampa, Ybor City, Tabanero Cigars, Tampa Bay Aquarium, Columbia Restaurant, Seminole Casino, Busch Gardens, St. Petersburg

You will be 1 hour 18 minutes from Orlando.

Guest access

2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, family room, living room, kitchen, dining room, wet bar and heated pool / lanai.

Interaction with guests

We live in the house and can socialize or leave you alone depending on what you would prefer.

Other things to note

The bed in the Safari Room is "Queen" sized. The Beach Room bed has a "full" size mattress. So if you are exceptionally tall your feet might stick out a little. But it is brand new along with the sheets and pillows.

We prefer not to use the home as a venue for large gatherings or parties.

There is no charge for children below 2 years of age.

There is a refundable $100 cleaning deposit for pets.

The stay was comfortable & the home was marvelous!! We seen Aaron & Sophia once during our 2 night stay. They were PLEASANT. I appreciated them straightening back up the house after we left for an evening out. That was very very helpful!! ;-) I'd say we would definitely be back again. My oldest 9 year old loved the pool. If I had to guess the pool starts at 4 feet then immediately drops to probably 8 ft deep. Luckily she's a good swimmer. The house was clean, they even have some extra personal care items in case you left any at home. The bar area was a plus. I could go on and on. Very nice stay! Thank you!!!!

I would highly recommended staying the Aaron and Sophie. I didn't get to meet Sophie but as soon as Aaron got home from work Wednesday he came and introduced himself right away. The house is beautiful and for us having a toddler everything was very convienient. Especially with the pool. The kitchen was available if needed but we didn't use. The rooms were comfortable and the house was pretty much ours! The shared entrance is no problem at all. When I come back to Tampa again I will def stay here if I have my daughter.!

Aaron & Sophie's home is beautiful. This was our first time ever staying in an Airbnb, and it was such a great experience. We really enjoyed spending our days in the pool, and we felt so welcome the whole time. They even provided fresh fruit and access to anything in the kitchen which was so nice. The welcome note was very detailed and had a lot of good information about the area. I would definitely recommend a stay here for anyone looking to relax and explore the Tampa area.

Aaron and Sophie's home is an absolute dream. A gorgeous pool and patio, comfortable rooms, a beautiful living room and kitchen... we were able to eat our dinner out on the covered patio overlooking the lit pool, which was amazing! I can't say enough about this place. We would stay again in a heartbeat!

Aaron & Sophie User ProfileAaron & Sophie is a superhost.

I am a software engineer. I work at an insurance company and Sophie works for an airline. We both love to travel so we decided to open up our extra rooms to fellow travelers. I would say flying airplanes and computers are my biggest passions, and travel is Sophie's. We love meeting people from all over the world and hearing about their adventures and sharing a few of our own.
