DISCLAIMER II - from time to time maintenance and repairs are required, so there may be an occasion when the pool or hot tub may not be available. That is beyond our control, and we ask in advance for you forgiveness. Thanks, Jeff & George

Guest access

Guests have access to all the common areas, such as kitchen, den, living room, dining room, pool, hot tub, sun decks and multiple courtyards. Guests may also use the laundry facility if needed.

Interaction with guests

You choose whether you want to be reclusive and spend most of your time in your own private suite, or socialize in the kitchen, common areas with other guests and us. You are always invited to join us in the kitchen when we are cooking to chat and "USUALLY" enjoy a glass of wine or two.

The neighborhood

Seminole Heights is a historic district, so the area is very safe, with beautiful homes AND, NO CHAIN RESTAURANTS. All the fabulous restaurants in the area are unique and a nice blend from organic vegetarian to Italian, to sports bar to pizzeria.

Getting around

ALTHOUGH NOT REQUIRED, renting a car is the best option as Tampa Bay is very spread out and mass transit is limited to bus.

However if you are attending a convention downtown, the mass transit to the convention center is easy, inexpensive and direct, but does require a transfer at the Marion Street Station.

WALKING is safe and easy in the neighborhood and you will find everything from grocery store to restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and pharmacy.

Other things to note

PLEASE NOTE - We provide towels, sheets, pillows and blankets and other luxuries, but guests must provide their own personal hygiene products such as soap, shampoo and lotions.

Housekeeping will provide fresh linen and towels to guest staying longer than 6 nights.

Even better than the descriptions. We had a lovely few days in Tampa and felt absolutely safe and comfortable in Jeffs amazing home. Loved the sincerity of the hosts and the ease of going about on your own throughout the day. Fell in love with his pups and birds! Would highly recommend over a hotel. It's better than any hotel we've been to. If ever in Tampa we will definitely stay again!

I had a wonderful stay at the Tampa River Home. It was everything and more than I had anticipated! I will definitely be returning when I come back to Tampa! Jeff and George are so friendly and accommodating. This was my first airbnb experience, and it was amazing!

This place is amazing. Reading the other reviews didn't do this place any justice. Next time I'm in Tampa, I'm ONLY staying here. Jeff and George are super friendly, and kind and they gave great suggestions on places to visit. Best Airbnb!!

We had a great stay with Jeff & George we had a delay flight and they were very accommodating with our very late arrival (4am). The bedrooms are really nice...bed very comfy. I would highly recommend staying at their place if you are going to Tampa.

Great area. Great hosts. Great company. Couldn't recommend this place more. Jeff and George are very accommodating, friendly and helpful. Their place is unreal and the dogs were very well behaved. If and when we return to Tampa, we would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This was my first AirBNB stay, and it was just wonderful. The house is lovely (you have full run of the house, except the owners' private quarters), the location quiet and secluded by the river, but easy to get to and close to restaurants. The dogs (three full-size poodles) were gorgeous and friendly, but aren't allowed upstairs to the guest rooms. The other guests at the time were friendly and nice and we shared info about places we'd been to that we recommended etc. Jeff and George were welcoming hosts. Breakfast is included -- everything is provided and you make your own in their big modern kitchen. The house was clean, as was my suite (all 6 bedrooms have their own en suite bathroom). The free wifi was a decent speed too. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

Jeff User ProfileJeff is a superhost.

Currently living in Tampa Florida, USA, I travel the world. I am passionate about going new places and meeting new people, which is why I love AirBnB. My partner George and I have built our dream house, and we open our doors for all travelers, offering the best comforts available, in our tranquil open lifestyle home. We are well lived, and we live well, and love to share that optimism with others. WELCOME TRAVELERS. you will enjoy your stay. Be prepared, we also love animals, as we have two standard poodles (hyper-allergenic), a koi pond, a macaw parrot, an African Grey parrot and one overly friendly cockatoo named ELVIS.
