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!
