About this listing
A bright, cozy private room w/bath, and office. Located in a quiet neighborhood. Close to Busch Gardens, USF Campus and I275, giving quick access to Disney and Gulf beaches. Access to kitchen, gym and pool. Also ideal for longer term stays if needed.
We have two bedrooms, with a single bath and a small office space in a separate area of our house. We rent both bedrooms out as singles, but let us know if you need both spaces, there will be an additional charge, we are willing to negotiate. If we do have two sets of renters at once, you will share the bathroom. Our place is ideally suited for two people who are travelling together and wish to stay in separate bedrooms, or a family.
Also with the space and the office/work area, it is great for people looking to relocate to the area, or here for a stay of several weeks; giving you a short term place to settle, that is roomy and quiet, while you search for a permanent location, etc. We are open to longer term rentals, and willing to negotiate on price, just inquire.
Our house is located in an upscale quiet neighborhood very close to the entrance of I-275, less than 8 miles from downtown Tampa. Busch Gardens and Adventure Islands are just 10 min away, along with the main campus for USF.The Gulf beaches 30 - 40 minutes drive. The Disney Parks are on this side of Orlando, so just straight up the interstate about one hour.
We have a very friendly Australian shepherd , who loves everyone. We also have a spacious tropical backyard and pool.
We have lived in area for years and happy to be helpful with suggestions for things to do. There are many wonderful restaurants and shopping nearby, and we're happy to make recommendations.
We provide a breakfast of danish, fruit and coffee while you are here!
We are very laid back, often work from home, so in and out throughout the day and available to help you with whatever you may need.
You will have access to the workout/yoga room if you like, the laundry facilities and the kitchen. The pool is open year round and delightful.
Interaction with Guests
We enjoy getting to know our guests and are happy to share our home. The house is open to you; we will be in the house when we have guests, but will respect your privacy.
We live in a quiet, upscale, very safe neighborhood. Are friendly with most of our neighbors, and have been here for 15+ years. Our street is not a 'through' street, so very little traffic except residents. Large lots and lots of privacy between houses. We have a large, fenced back yard with pool and lounges. Parking is easy, in the driveway or on the street.
We are located about a mile from the Interstate exchange, so very convenient to everywhere. There is also a nice grocery/shopping center within two miles, we often ride our bikes there for ice cream in the evening. The bikes are available for guests to use, also. Several tennis courts within a few blocks, and a Lifestyle's gym within about two miles.
We are extremely flexible and easy going. Mostly we appreciate courtesy and friendliness. We would not be happy with late night parties, or bringing others into our home, without prior discussion.
We are fine with your having access to most of the house, the kitchen, laundry and even the gym. You may feel free to use kitchen/fridge as you wish
We are open to allowing pets, let's discuss first, as we do have a dog on premises, he is a sweetheart, yet want to be sure we think they will get along.
We do not allow smoking in the house, but may use the patio.
Basically, treat our home with the same respect you treat your own home.....no worries!
Janee and Rob welcomed us into their home with open arms. We did a long term rental and it was a great experience. Janee and Rob are laid back and make you feel right at home. They are warm hearted and generous and I would highly recommend this Airbnb to anyone looking to stay in the Tampa area. The bed is comfortable and the room and bathroom are in their own part of the house giving you plenty of privacy if you want it. Their dog Boo is super friendly too and he got along great with our dog Rudy. They live in a wonderful safe neighborhood very close to the interstate for easy access to downtown.
Janee was a terrific host for the week. The house is immaculate, in a fine neighborhood. From the initial tour of the house upon arrival, during the week and as we left Janee was gracious and warm.
My boyfriend Ryan and I stayed at Janee and Rob's for three nights. I was in town working the Plant City Strawberry Festival.
We were welcomed by Rob upon arrival. He assisted with our bags and was very kind and friendly. He made us feel right at home. The neighborhood was quiet and pretty. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Janee, as she was away. But Rob was personable and fun. We really enjoyed his company.
Rob and Janee were SUPER welcoming and friendly. Their dog was awesome and very nice as well. The bed, sheets, and room were very clean. The mattress was memory foam it was very comfortable. They also lent me beach chairs, towels, umbrella, etc when we wanted to go to the beach. They live in a very nice and quiet neighborhood as well that is located close to everything (shops, Busch Gardens, etc.). This was my first airbnb experience and they made it a fantastic one. I came to Tampa to visit family and I we could have spent more time with them. If I come back to Tampa I would definitely stay with them again.
Comfortable beds, clean rooms, quiet neighborhood, plenty of space AND homemade bread and muffins for breakfast...who could want more?! Janee and Rob were gracious hosts and made our first airbandb experience a very positive one!
We spent 3 wonderful weeks at this house. Janee and Rob are great hosts and the rooms are just like described. They are newly painted and fresh and clean. The neighborhood is very quiet and residential, but only 3 miles from everything from Walmart to Whole Foods. We liked the little "den" to enjoy our coffee and read.
We took part in a wonderful dinner that Janee cooked as well, which was a nice treat! Since our family lives close by, we will surely come back one day again!!
Janee and Rob are fantastic hosts. From my arriving much later than expected to being accommodating with my early early morning fitness schedule, they were friendly and gracious. I had a few opportunities to sit with them for coffee or hanging around at the kitchen and watching some television. They also provided me with privacy as needed. The guest bedroom and bath were very comfortable and had everything that I needed. The home and neighborhood are quiet and convenient to shopping, restaurants, and more. I look forward to future trips to the area and staying with them again!
