Queen suite, pool, lake, wifi, B&B

House - Private room · Catlin Drive, Tampa , FL 33647, United States

Beautiful queen suite with private bathroom in quiet, clean, modern home. Pool, breakfast, lake, laundry, wifi, parking etc.

The Space

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 are fantastic hosts, made us feel right at home and freely shared their beautiful suburban home with us. They were super helpful in advising us on where to go and what to do in the Tampa Bay area. Very quiet and safe location, close to freeway access and lots of shopping and restaurants. Provided great breakfasts, way beyond what we expected. We would definitely stay at their home again if we return to Tampa.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

About
Hilton and Glynis were born in South Africa, have traveled six continents, and love Tampa Bay. Hilton retired from law when we came to the US and helps Glynis with her training company. Our sons have grown up, and their suites are empty so we began by welcoming international students and found that we enjoyed this. We also hosted Moffitt patients and visitors after Glynis' father passed away from cancer. As directors of the Tampa Bay International Business Council, and the American International Business Council, we heard about Airbnb/Crashpadders from the Irish Chamber of Commerce. We saw a way to share local knowledge with visitors. We can help visitors to Tampa Bay to understand the regional business community and economy, and to make business contacts, and we are experts on how to enjoy Tampa Bay. We still host cancer patients with minimal immune challenges (and we clean things ourselves to meet the requirements). We hope to interest others in the International Community in opening their homes to international business people, and to those visiting medical and academic/educational centers in the region (Moffitt, CAMLs etc.)
