A lovely home and a lovey host! We have a fantastic night's sleep and it was great to get-up to such a nice scene. Mel went out of her way to make sure we felt welcome and comfortable. I can't recommend this place enough!
We are happy to HIGHLY recommend Jamie & Melissa's home to persons traveling to the Tampa area. Their home is exceptionally clean, has really comfortable bedding, a nice size bathroom, plush towels and is located in a safe neighborhood. Very conveniently located (airports, zoo, aquarium, etc.) The décor is beautiful! Melissa has a gift for interior and exterior design. Our stay on the river was serene and relaxing. We are grateful for our time in this beautiful setting. Thanks Jamie & Melissa! We hope to be back.
Our stay was great! The posted pictures and description of Jamie & Melissa's home and property give only a glimpse of how beautiful their place really is. Thanks for the wonderful stay and conversation Melissa!
Melissa and Jamie are frindly host. They invited us for dinner and we had a nice conversation, also with Melissas nephew. The house is very clean and cozy. There is a beautiful view from the terrace. From their pier we could see the back of a manetee.
Melissa and Jamie were fantastic -- so welcoming and helpful. The room was also wonderful: clean and quiet, with really fun decor and a very comfortable bed. There were even fresh flowers :) Evenings spent relaxing on the dock were incredible. I can't recommend it enough!
This place is incredible and so are the hosts. Melissa & Jamie made us feel at home and were a wealth of local information. We enjoyed our time out on the dock and with the many animal companions, not to mention the gorgeous vegetation and spectacular home. Spacious, clean, and private. HIGHLY recommended. Seriously, I want to move here :)
Jamie and Melissa were wonderful hosts, very pleasant, and hospitable. The bedroom was clean and well decorated. And the yard and patio on the river were quite peaceful. If we could, we'd love to stay with them again.
We are from Tampa and love to travel for live music!!
Melissa's perfect day: a run in the park, a trip to the museum, followed by a brewery tour, and capped off by a concert!
Jamie's perfect day: play a little hockey, work from home at the end of the dock, and see a concert with Melissa :)
