Melissa and Jamie are a very sweet couple and really tried to make us feel welcome. Their house is beautiful and charming and they have the sweetest dogs. They're a sweet down to earth couple who love entertaining guests.
Our AirBnB experience with Jamie and Melissa was well beyond our expectations! Booking was very easy, and they were very quick to respond. Upon arriving, we were blown away by how nice and comfortable their home was. Melissa greeted us with a very warm welcome (and a cold beverage) :) The accommodations were super clean, comfortable and way nicer than any hotel we could have booked. Loved the 3 dogs who were really excited to meet us. Jamie and Melissa even cooked us a delicious bacon & eggs breakfast before our all-day workshop.
We wish we had more time to spend with Melissa and Jamie, but we were so busy all 3 days. They provided us with great recommendations for food/drinks and we will absolutely try to book with them again when we return to Tampa.
Jamie and Melissa were really, really nice and just perfect hosts. this is why people like airbnb! we loved the accomodation and especially the very beautiful garden. I can highly recommend it :-)
Jamie and Melissa are the best hosts - from the moment we started communicating, we could tell that they were down to earth, fun people. The accommodations were outstanding - our own private bath and room, both well appointed with creative art and an amazing sense of style. The house itself is charming and has two beautiful porches plus a dock at the river. The reception committee of pooches was so welcoming and each pup had an amazing rescue story to share. Melissa gave us suggestions of places to eat and if you are ever in the area, follow her advice and head to Ella's where you will have your tastebuds dancing. We stayed for three nights and felt so at home! They allow you your privacy but are always available if needed. We have no reservations about recommending this reservation to anyone in search of a lovely hidden treasure on the river!
Jaime and Melissa are hosts in a class of their own. They are two of the most welcoming and well-traveled people I have met from my time on the road. They invited me to come with them on a bike pub crawl around downtown and along with their neighbors, I had an unforgettable time exploring Tampa. Although it's obvious, I should mention that access to the downtown area is quick and easy by car and reasonable on a bicycle. Their house is beautiful and if you enjoy water, they have an outdoor area that is peaceful and gorgeous - the perfect spot to work. Bottom line: if you're looking for a space in Tampa that offers a great work area, a relaxing home or just people who you can share a good conversation with - book a stay at Jaime and Melissa's home.
I came to Jamie and Melissa between conferences, all the way across the country from my own home, and felt like I was at my home away from home. The setting, the comfort and the hospitality they provided were beyond my expectations and I left with two new friends and a place I would return to in a heart beat should the opportunity ever present itself again. I can't recommend this location and these warm hosts highly enough.
Our stay with Jamie and Melissa was fantastic!
We arrived pretty late after a drive from Key West, but Melissa was really kind and accommodated for our late arrival. Their home is beautiful! The thought and consideration they put into their home is really evident. We especially loved all of the cute accents in the guest bedroom.
We actually almost didn't get to meet Melissa and Jamie because we had to head to the airport early the next morning, but luckily we ran into them outside and had a lovely chat before heading on our way. We're really hoping to return to Tampa, if only to spend some more time with the two!
We enjoyed staying with Jamie & Melissa last week, very hospitable and very positive people. the only reason we did not give it 5 stars is because it rained the entire time we were in Tampa.
My girlfriend and I stayed here for New Years' Eve... pretty much just hit the airbnb jackpot. What a find! Gracious hosts, beautiful accommodations. A super comfortable and cozy night's stay. Do it!
Great people and great house. Will definitely be visiting again!
