Welcome to Tampa Bay! We have two rooms in a beautiful pool home in a quiet neighbourhood. 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 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.
We are members of the Lowry Park Zoo and have 2 free admission passes worth $50 which you are free to use.
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 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.
Please note that an idiosyncrasy with AirBNB's listing format around whole house vs private room, part of this listing may indicate there is only one room. There are two rooms available. We never rent to more than one group so even if you only need one room, the other will be empty during your stay.
Smoking outside is fine. We can cook meals as schedule permits. You may use bar. Pets 20 pounds and below are welcome.
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.
Quartier calme et tres en sécurité!
Maison spacieuse et adorable. Les chambres ont tous le confort nécessaire. Aaron a tout fait pour simplifier notre arrivée en fonction de nos horaires.
C est un couple tres gentil et attentionné!
Petite surprise : un déjeuner excellent! Une charmante attention!!
Great host! Very helpful. Tons of space, well appointed. I highly recommend Aaron's place!
Thank you Aaron and Sophie for a wonderful stay. Your home was so comfortable and you both were so welcoming. We especially loved the layout, decor, and the beautiful pool and patio area where we were able to grill up a yummy meal, splash around, listen to good music, and play darts. The neighborhood was safe and very convenient. It was also very sweet of you to give us some travel tips and Klondike bars! We would highly recommend your place to other small families like ours who are visiting Tampa.
We are so thankful for such an amazing stay! The house is much larger than expected, the pool is so inviting, beautiful decor throughout, and it was very easy to find. Great eateries around the area. The internet connection was solid. The Smiths are very hospitable. Aaron even set the coffee pot for us to be ready in the morning before our 4 1/2 hour drive!
Przepiękny dom z dużym basenem. Wszystko jest! Ręczniki,szampony i przemili gospodarze :) Polecam.
Czysto i miło!
We had a great time in the Tampa area. Sophia and Aaron were both very nice hosts and provided us with everything we needed. They also had great tips for restaurants or beaches in the area.
The house is very big, clean and we really enjoyed the two seperate bedrooms and our bathroom.
We had the sharedt living room, the kitchen and the pool also basically for ourselfs.
I can really recommend this place to everyone who wants to see the Tampa area.
Thank you for the great stay!
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.
