Suite 1: Downstairs. A large light (non-smoking) room with bay window overlooking gardens. En-suite bathroom, new TV and comfortable couch. Queen bed with high-quality new mattress. The headboard was installed after the AirBnb "official" photographs were taken, and shows the room in evening light.
Suite 2: Upstairs. This is the entire upstairs section of the house, and is a very large, light, (non-smoking) with an en-suite bathroom with bath and shower and vanity. This suite has its own fridge and air conditioning system. The bed is king-size and there is also seating with a high-quality futon-style bed. There is a new desk.
There are various photographs. I have left the AirBnb photos, with the room before the king bed, and before the new 32" television. There are also pictures of the room after the king bed and tartan headboard were installed. That also has a new 32" TV with HBO and many sports etc options.
The pool has a lake view, with a conservation area on the other side of the small lake. The wifi area reaches the pool and the deep lanai. Guests loves the pool area. There are pool towels.
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. (Brandon Mall, Wiregrass Mall etc.)
This part of Tampa Bay is the golfing, academic, Busch Gardens, medical etc side of Tampa. There are dozens of golf courses, and Hilton is knowledgeable about these. He can usually book golf. We are also suitable for CAMLS.
We believe that this accommodation is most suited to adults, perhaps with older teens. The house is not suitable for children as the pool is not fenced, and there are other places on the beach.
Our ideal guests are international visitors, business, academic and professional people, university parents and new students going to college, medical visitors, golfers, etc. We can help all of these groups with our knowledge and experience of the area.
The house is relatively close to USF and to many major medical centers like Moffitt. It is close to the I75-Bruce B Downs off-ramp.
There are pleasant walks and hundreds of great places to visit in Tampa Bay. We can answer most questions about these or provide resource material.
This accommodation is unusual in three ways. 1) The house has three master suites (and two full lounges and two eating areas) besides other rooms and bathrooms. 2) We're experts on Tampa Bay business, and on international soft landings. We are both deeply involved in volunteer economic development work. We have extensive experience of international visitors, and can help with connections and information in many areas. 3) The setting is amazing. Many guests have not wanted to leave the property, and simply sit gazing at the lake, or lie floating in the pool, reveling in the peacefulness.
