Best airbnb experience I've had, hands down. Jeff and George make you feel like their house is as much yours as it is theirs. The suite style rooms make the experience as public or as private as you'd like; there's ample community space for socializing with other guests, and plenty of personal space with your own room, bathroom and outdoor balcony. The property is absolutely gorgeous with a fantasy-like outdoor space complete with an in-ground pool, hot tub, propane fire pits and plenty of seating for friends and family. They also have three extremely well-behaved standard poodles, and Elvis, a bird with his own outdoor aviary. The animals helped me feel right at home! Jeff and George were more than happy to welcome friends of ours who were also in town but staying elsewhere, and they were generally helpful and a pleasure to converse with. I was in town for a wedding and am already looking for other reasons to visit in the future.

Great place! Every aspect was easy and enjoyable. Jeff was there upon check-in to provide a thorough tour of the entire house and all the amenities available (pool, hot tub, aviary, kitchen, many outside spaces with gar fire pits, etc.). There was no shortage of ways to enjoy yourself at The River House. My room was spacious, updated, and clean with a private balcony overlooking the Hillsborough River. All in all, very comfortable and enjoyable stay, and I'll definitely book again. Thanks, Jeff!

A lovely home with all the right touches. I felt completely at home in this beautiful space that includes a salt-water pool, hot tub, and plenty of little areas to sit and enjoy the sunshine. My room was quiet and had a beautiful bathroom. Everything was very clean and Jeff and George were quick to help with any questions I had. And even though there were other guests in the house, they were all respectful of other guests and kept the noise level down. I would definitely recommend this place to business travelers.

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.
