Interaction with Guests
My wife and I are both in our late 20's & early 30's and two years ago we traveled through central and south America. We enjoy meeting people from other places and we plan to interact with our guests as much as they would like.
Our house is 4 blocks away from Tampa Bay and Lassing Park which has a nice little beach. Plus when the tide goes out you can walk a fair distance into the water.
Our neighborhood is very artsy and eccentric. A lot of our neighbors have chickens and gardens and each house is very unique.
Close to Dali Museum, University of South Florida- St. Petersburg, Boyd Hill Nature Preserve, Downtown St. Petersburg
There is a bus stop on 4th street & 19th ave and this is about 1 block from my house. This route can take you all over the county or connect you with other routes and it this is route 4.

Guests are responsible for cleaning up after themselves and we would encourage you to follow the rule of leaving things better then you found them.
We take pride in recycling and composting.
Awesome host. Chris is very laid back and knows his business. I had a warm and welcoming stay. Energy and vibe was on point. All the guests staying there were genine and nice. I feel like I made a new friend--thanks Chris :)
Amazing house, host and experience!! I'm a single female and this place was safe, conveniently located, and full of friendly people.
Our family loved our stay at Casa Blanca! Although we never felt pressure to hang out with our fellow travelers, we enjoyed visiting with them and got many good ideas about local attractions to visit. Chris also steered us toward a fun vacation, and our daughter was thrilled to have other kids to play with. I was impressed that the kitchen was always spotless and appreciated being able to cook, recycle and compost while on vacation. We'd definitely stay again!
As a single, 66 year old female, I was somewhat skeptical about booking at the International House, but my month long stay exceeded all expectations. The accommodations are comfortable and the cameraderie amazing. I experienced no problems using the laundry facilities, public areas of the houses, or getting around the city. The public transit is wonderful with short term passes for reasonable prices.
I loved the potluck community dinners and meeting people from all over the US and the world. Chris has a passion for living and shares it with everyone. I will be back. It feels like my second home now.
Great place to stay! Everyone in the house was so welcoming and Chris was wonderful in making sure I had everything I needed.
