Interaction with Guests
We would be glad to offer some transportation assistance along with tons of info about our area and possible auto tours if interested. We can have a little or as much interaction as our guest would like. We have traveled extensively around the world and love sharing stories and adventures.
Casa Puente BnB property its self is so unique you don't even realize you are in a neighborhood. Ybor City and Down Town are minutes away. Enjoy the country in the city.
Florida is very much a place one drives his or her own car. Car rental in Tampa area is usually very inexpensive. However, we are one block from public transportation (bus) takes you straight down town. Buses here are very slow and not recommended.
And only one mile off the Interstate just 1 minute off I-275. Tampa International Airport is 15 miles straight down the interstate (20 minutes). We are 75 minutes from Disney and all the theme parks. 10 minutes to Busch Gardens and about 45 minutes to the beaches of Clearwater and St. Pete, and 15 minutes (10 miles) from Cruise Ship terminals.
Famous Ybor City is just 9 miles from here just off downtown Tampa. Full of clubs, restaurants, shops etc.

Martin met us at 10pm to let us in and show us around. I didn't expect that, at all. He and Eric made us feel welcome. They also let us play fetch with the dog, Ty. We missed our puppies and this helped. It's a great little place in the middle of a quiet area outside of Tampa. We'd definitely stay there again.
The other reviews about this place are 100% accurate.
Martin and Eric have a wonderful property that is large and wooded with a little stream and trails --- but yet close to main highways. We loved their adorable and energetic lab, Ty. The studio is very well designed and uses space well --- and since it is up over the garage, it gets great light and a nice breeze when the windows are open. Parking is easy. We stayed for a week and were very comfortable. M & E are pet friendly and it was fun to be able to bring my little pooch, Beau, along for the trip. We did not go for a swim in the lovely pool but we did go for walks in the woods and enjoyed the property.
Martin & Eric were incredibly hospitable from first communication to coming to Casa Puente... as was Ty the gorgeous Black Lab!
I love the secludedness of their home and garden set amongst old trees and streams yet minutes from major routes which lead to anywhere in the Tampa Bay area.
The Studio is private / spacious / well appointed and comfortable. I stayed here in January, so there was no need for AC and it was such a pleasure to be able to have windows that open! I moved from one of those hermetically sealed "Residence Hotels" won't name it, but the idea of staying any longer than a few days amongst the red brown and orange motif was enough to make a person unbalanced! ;-)
The pool (cool) and the jacuzzi (hot) were a great way to start each day. Laundry facilities like those on a super yacht... first time in ages I've enjoyed doing my own laundry!
So happy to have found Case Puente and when / if I return to Tampa, this will be my first priority to book.
Thanks fellas! RBB
Martin and Eric are just fantastic hosts. Our flight arrived at midnight. We have factored that give or take would be at their place around 1:00 am.... except that the GPS sent us on a different direction and ended up getting to their place a little before 2:00 am. Martin was waiting for us; he had a big smile and welcomed us to the place. There was also a misunderstanding about breakfast which in the end worked out perfectly. The apartment is in a quiet and safe area; perfect for the getaway we were looking for.
Ty, M&E's black lab, was also the friendliest, funniest and most delightful dog on earth.
Martin and Eric are very heartwarming hosts. They made my stay very comfortable and were helpful in many aspects during my visit. I would recommend them to anyone visiting Tampa and looking for a great place to stay.
I enjoyed my stay, and Martin and Eric were excellent hosts. The studio apartment was immaculate and provided everything I needed. I also enjoyed the use of the pool. Too bad I was unable to enjoy more of their hospitality as I was in the area for business. I was able to enjoy dinner with them my first day but had to unfortunately pass on an invite for breakfast. I would definitely stay at their place again if available on a future trip! Location was very quiet and private with easy access to shopping, restaurants and airport plus main travel routes.
Martin and Eric were wonderful hosts. They went above and beyond in making me feel welcome and offering their advice about the city. They take excellent care of their property and it was a true pleasure to reside there during my stay. Will choose them again if I return to Tampa.
