This large quiet house has three master suites. This suite is the queen suite, a large, light, (non-smoking) suite in a very peaceful setting, with pool, lake and full breakfasts, wifi, extended cable television and en-suite bathroom (shower).
The bed in this suite is a queen size, with a new high-quality mattress. There is a small couch which can become a sleeper couch, and new desk. The suite is separated from the rest of the house by a small foyer and is quiet and private.
The area is very peaceful, next to a small lake, with pool, guest lounge and dining room, and beautiful patio ("lanai"). Breakfast, tea and coffee are always available, and the wifi is fast and highly reliable.
A second, large king suite is available.
This suite is very private, but guests often relax in the downstairs lounge or outside. The couch turns into a small sleeper if an extra person sleeps in the room. There is extended cable, including many sports channels and HBO. The TV set is new.
There is a well-equipped laundry room with washer and dryer, washing powder etc.
Guests often use the main kitchen. Breakfast is included. Sometimes they make their own breakfasts, and sometimes they like Glynis to cook for them - it's always a comfortable arrangement. Our medical guests often have special needs and we accommodate these happily.
The house is in pristine condition and the area is quiet. There are restaurants, a coffee bar, pharmacy, post office etc and other stores with easy walking distance, and there is a bus close by, but one really needs a car in Tampa Bay. Public transit is not great. There are several malls "close by" in Tampa Bay terms - i.e. a 10 - 15 minute drive.
We believe that this accommodation is best suited to adults, or older teens, and probably suits business, medical, academic, and international visitors, golfers, university parents, new students going to college etc.
The house is relatively close to USF and to many major medical centers like Moffitt and close to the I75-Bruce B Downs off-ramp.
Glynis and HIlton have met with the Lodging Committee at Moffitt and are trying to build more community connections between medical facilities and our diverse communities, to support American and International visitors to Tampa Bay.
We're also experts on Tampa Bay business (and international business) and are both deeply involved in volunteer economic development work. We have extensive experience of international visitors, and love to share our the region with them..
We train cultural fluency and soft landings for international trade, and have multiple contacts in the business worlds of the area. This knowledge can be useful to visitors and we share it freely.
Hilton and Glynnis were wonderful, charming hosts. Their home is beautiful as is the suite I stayed in. The suite had everything I could possibly need -- bottled water, snack, TV, great desk for working, couch for lounging. The bathroom was spacious and clean and the closet was stocked with extra towels. They said treat their home as my home during their stay and gave me access to the kitchen and fridges, which were stocked with yogurts, fruit, drinks, etc. The view of the river from their patio/enclosed pool was terrific. I took a little walk and saw egrets. I highly recommend this for business or personal travel.
Everything was as good or better than advertised. Delightful hosts. Enjoyed my stay.
My second stay with Hilton and Glynis was a repeat of the first - OUTSTANDING in every respect!
Glynnis and Hilton are wonderful hosts and the accommodations are clean, comfortable, quiet and convenient.
I had the privilege of staying with the Munro's over New Year's with my girlfriend. They welcomed us like family, opening their beautiful home and treating us to a fantastic breakfast each morning. We had a very private suite with its own full bathroom to ourselves, while enjoying the use of the kitchen and living room whenever it suited us. Hilton and Glynis were great ambassadors of Tampa, they will be my first choice in the future.
My first Airbnb stay will be tough to beat. Great conversation with the hosts by the pool, a comfy, clean and complete suite, and a delicious breakfast in the morning. Take their word on what to do in Tampa - they know!
Dankie vir jou gasvryheid.
Glynis and Hilton are, well what can I say, simply marvelous hosts. This was my 1st time using airbnb, couldn't have asked for a better intro. They made me feel like one of the family, even their shiba ino dog was charming. I will surly use them again, as it will seem more of a visit with friends. Wish them both a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Hilton and Glynis.... Wonderful hosts, sweet people, and their home is so.... welcoming. Next trip to Tampa... if they will have me.. I will be staying with them.
Hilton and Glynis were very kind hosts. They welcomed us very warmly with offering any drink we wished for. They gave us a good recommention with "Columbia Restaurant" at Ybor city including doing our reservation. The room was very tidy and comfortable. We had our own bathroom. They offered us a huge breakfast. It felt like home.
What a wonderful place and wonderful hosts! Hilton and Glynnis immediately made us feel at home and the accommodations were perfect! The bed was extremely comfortable and breakfast each morning made us feel like royalty. The location in North (New) Tampa was very close to several major interstate entrances, making our travels in the area quick and easy. I highly recommend this lovely home.
