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.
My teenage kids and i stayed with these kind folks just one night but we really enjoyed ourselves.
Their home was immaculate and very tastefully decorated.
The beds were very comfortable and the pool and deck were quite nice.
We went out for a walk/run/skateboard around their neighborhood and felt we were in a safe and friendly area.
The hosts went out of their way to answer my many questions with a list of contact info and things we would need for our outings.
I encourage everyone looking for a great place to stay in the Tampa area to put their home and hospitality at the top of your choices as we did.
Chez Aaron et Sophie, on se sent comme à la maison ! Tout est fait pour que l'on soit à l' aise. La maison est spacieuse et confortable avec vue sur la piscine. Toute notre petite famille a eu beaucoup de plaisir à y séjourner ( 3nuits) . Merci encore à Aaron et Sophie pour leur accueil.
We had a wonderful time in Tampa and were so thankful to find Aaron and Sophia's listing! The house was wonderful and we felt instantly comfortable and at home. Would highly recommend staying here if you're in the Tampa area!
We had a great time staying with Aaron and Sophie in Tampa. They have a beautiful home, and it was the perfect set-up for us. They were welcoming, generous, and helpful. We have no hesitation about recommending their place to others.
It's so awesome to stay with them! we love them like they are my family members. Also, Aaron is a football fan, and we have fun with Aaron and Sophie! It's really best time ever!
We really had a wonderful stay at Aaron and Sophie's! Our family was there for over a week and Aaron and Sophie treated us like old friends. Their home is beautiful, very clean and tidy, spacious and inviting. Everything was perfect. They really took care of our needs, making sure we had fruits and croissants, fresh towels, suggestions of where to shop and eat in the area. Everything was easy breezy with them, except for winning against Aaron in trivia of course....but that's a whole other review. We highly highly recommend Aaron and Sophie as hosts. They are two of the kindest people i've ever met!!!
My son and I travelled to Tampa for an Orchestra event. This was our first experience with Airbnb so we were not sure what to expect. This home is perfectly described on Airbnb. The rooms were very comfortable, especially the beds. Due to the cool weather during our stay, we did not use the pool but it was very inviting. The place is very clean and the neighborhood is exceptional quiet. I would definitely stay here again if I am in need of a place in Tampa and I would highly recommend it to others.
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.
