About This Listing
Chateau de'Lithia is the perfect stay for your business trip, your 'stay-cation', romantic weekend, or anytime you want to relax in beauty and serenity. Conveniently located in Tampa Florida's beautiful Brandon/Valrico neighborhood.
Your suite is spacious, bright, and relaxing. The bed is queen sized with premium linens. The bathroom includes a separate shower and is stocked with high grade soaps, lotions, and towels.
I am an interior design and boutique hound so your room is artistically decorated with one of a kind finds. There is a coffee maker, a microwave, a mini-fridge in the room pre-stocked with water bottles, a flat screen television, cable, and high-speed wireless internet. There is ample closet space in the bedroom to store your luggage and souvenirs. Partake in any of my Tampa history and guide books that adorn the night stand.
Chateau de'Lithia is conveniently located 45 minutes from Disney World and 45 minutes from Clearwater Beach, voted Top 10 Beaches in the United States. Have the best of both world's at your fingertips!
Chateau de'Lithia is (5 minutes) from Westfield Brandon Shopping Mall, (10 minutes) Medard Park, Keel & Curly Winery (15 minutes), Tampa Museum of Art (15 minutes downtown), Glazer Children's Museum (15 minutes downtown), Florida Aquarium (15 minutes downtown) and the amazing world-class Lowry Park Zoo. I am 25 minutes from the airport, call/text me in advance and if available, I’ll pick you up or drop you off. If you choose to rent a car or are driving, I have off street parking in my driveway.
If you choose to stay at Chateau de'Lithia, you will receive a 4 or 5 digit key code that allows you access to your room. Your suite is equipped with a punch code lock that allows you privacy and extra security.
Guests receive a goody basket typically containing items like oatmeal, trail mix, breakfast bars, and/or fruit. I would prefer if full meals are not prepared on the stove, but anything small like soup or boiled/scrambled eggs and use of the toaster is fine.
If you’re ready for relaxation and serenity located in the middle of fabulous Tampa, Chateau de'Lithia is the locale for you. Hope to see you soon!
Interaction with Guests
This is my permanent home so I may be around during your stay, I very much respect privacy, both mine and yours and will stay out of your bedroom and bathroom during your stay. However, I am very friendly and love to talk about my neighborhood and city and would love to make suggestions to make your stay more comfortable! Comfort and satisfaction are very important as a guest, just let me know what makes you comfortable.
Obtaining a rental car would be most efficient as Tampa does not have a convenient public transportation system.
This house is my family home. I ask that you are completely respectful to my home and its contents. Smoking is never allowed inside.
No unauthorized, "surprise" guests are allowed in my home. Only guests discussed and accepted at the time of booking are allowed.
This was my second stay at Chateau D'Lithia. Once again the booking was peaceful and luxurious. I was back in Brandon, Fl for business and truly was able to decompress and relax with such great accommodations. I didn't get a chance to fully interact with the family because of my hectic schedule, but Tennille met me at check-in time and left me a charming, personalized note on the eve of my departure. I've become so spoiled with Chateau D'Lithia, all my stays at so called luxury hotels pale in comparison! I look forward to my return trip!!
This was our first experience with airbnb, so we weren't sure about what space we were allowed to use. The bedroom was comfortable, but there was no place to sit except the bed. If use of the adjoining room for reading or other quiet activities was acceptable, the size of the room would not be an issue, but we didn't know what was expected. We went out on the patio to look through brochures to decide what to do, but got the feeling that maybe we were not supposed to do that.
Our host was was warm and friendly, and printed out several pages of instructions to help us find our way around. The house is very nice, and the location is convenient to major arteries for getting around.
Any negatives concerning our experience were due to our lack of experience and failure to ask questions that would have made us more comfortable.
I had a quick overnight stay and didn't get to meet Tennille, but she was easy to communicate and coordinate with. It's a nice little guest room with private bath and shower, mini fridge, microwave, keurig, anything you might need. I took advantage of a basket with some snacks and toiletries. I'd come back anytime.
Fantastic experience. I didn't get a chance to meet Tennille but everything worked smooth, and she was very responsive via messages. Definitely we will come back.
Tenille's house and setup are fantastic!! She prompted responded to our last minute request, was very accommodating. The house is well decorated and the room was one of the nicest we've stayed in! She had a nice snack basket put out for on arrival, we slept great, and the pool was a nice!! HIGHLY recommend
We had a great stay here! When we arrived we were welcomed to comfortable accommodations. The location was very convenient for visiting the surrounding Tampa Bay area. The bed and linens were very nice, the kitchen is beautiful, and you can't neglect the private swimming pool in the back yard. We recommend staying here!
Tennille was very helpful in setting up my membership at the local Y and other hints in the neighborhood. Valrico is a family neighborhood, not much night life. There is an excellent health food store about 2 miles away that makes a phenominal chicken and kale salad. Good place for takeout as well. For golf, Bloomindale GC only 10 minutes away. An exceptional layout, if only the maintenance was better. Still a worthy play. The other public courses in the area, not worth the mention.
