Guest Access

Guests will 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 fairly quick.

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 - Although we have pets, we are not necessarily a "PET FRIENDLY" establishment. Guests with pets should contact us before making reservations. Our concern is for the safety of our parrots. Our parrots roam freely in the aviary during the day and in the house at night. We have had too many close encounters whereby guests dogs have kipped or bitten our birds.

PLEASE NOTE - we DO NOT provide personal hygiene products. We provide towels, sheets, pillows and blankets, but guests must provide their own soap, shampoo and lotions.

Housekeeping will provide fresh linen and towels to guest staying longer than 5 nights.
