About This Listing
Welcome to Tampa Bay! Our home, including two guest rooms, is yours while you are here. It's central to everything Tampa Bay and is 1 hour 20 minutes from Orlando. We are a married couple that lives in the opposite end of the home.
One room is decorated with a beach theme and opens to the pool and lanai. The other has a safari theme. There is a full bath located between the bedrooms for your exclusive use. 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" 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.
We are members of the Lowry Park Zoo and have 2 free admission passes worth $50 which you are free to use.
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, ponds, a hiking trail and a YMCA. The home is central to many area destinations:
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.

2 bedrooms, bathroom, family room, kitchen, dining room and pool / lanai.
Interaction with Guests
We live in the house and can socialize or leave you alone depending on what you would prefer. We do love to entertain. If you let us smoke some pulled pork and serve tropical drinks, we'll all be happy.
There are ponds, walking trail, golf course and exclusive tennis courts, basketball courts with a playground and barbecue area within walking distance. A YMCA is a 5 minute drive away.
A car is required.
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.
Smoking outside is fine. We can cook meals as schedule permits. You may use bar. Pets 20 pounds and below are welcome.
This was my first time using airbnb i didn't know what to expect.the description on line was perfect it was very clean and welcoming i couldn't of asked for a better experience.the host made me like i was at home in my house.The zoo passes was a great a bonus for my family.The neighborhood was nice the neighbors was great and friendly.
Aaron and Sophie were very welcoming, and even went as far as to barbecue for my birthday. They provided us plenty of space and top notch accommodations. Would gladly go back again when I'm in the area. I cannot express enough how welcoming and wonderful they were.
This was our first experience using AirBnb and Aaron & Sophie made it a very pleasurable one. They have a beautiful home and are extremely gracious and discrete hosts. We often felt we had the house to ourselves. They were also generous enough to hook us up with all the beach essentials we were missing. I would highly recommend anyone traveling to the Tampa region to check them out. This is some of the best value for money I have experienced in traveling.

About the Host, Aaron
I am a software engineer, recently relocated to Tampa from Seattle. I work at an insurance company and my wife 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 my wife's.
