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.

Guests should note we DO NOT provide personal hygiene products. Guests must provide their own soap, shampoo and lotions.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • If your travels bring you to Tampa - you won't find a better place than this!! The house is tremendously comfortable and the hosts are so friendly and accomnodating. We both had an amazing experience and enjoyed the stay tremendously.

    April 2014
  • We enjoyed our quick trip to Tampa! Jeff and George take great care of their guests. Great neighborhood, good food, spacious rooms.

    April 2014
  • Jeff and George are great hosts (Jeff und George sind super Gastgeber), very helpful (sehr hilfsbereit) and ready to give assistance and advice at all times (und jederzeit bereit für gute Tipps).

    Breakfast was excellent (Super Frühstück): One does not miss anything (nix, was es nicht gab) – different types of coffee, tea, fruit juices, joghurt, fresh fruit, cereals, eggs and bacon (verschiedene Sorten Kaffee, Tee, Fruchtsäfte, Joghurt, frisches Obst, Cerealien, Speck und Ei) etc.
    And you were welcome to help yourself and make coffee 24 hours a day (Und man hatte rund um die Uhr die Möglichkeit, sich selbst Kaffee zu machen).

    The house was quiet and located in a nice area (Das Haus war ruhig und in einer schönen Umgebung gelegen). Everything was exactly as described and like on the photos (Alles war genau wie beschrieben und auf den Fotos).

    We loved their pets (Wir waren begeistert von ihren Haustieren).

    We liked the relaxed atmosphere (Uns gefiel die entspannte Atmosphäre) at their house. They had several other guests at their house during the time we stayed there (Sie hatten während der Zeit als wir da waren mehrere andere Gäste) and everybody just gathered in their kitchen thus having the opportunity for interesting conversations and laughing with other people from different places (und man traf sich einfach in der Küche für interessante Gespräche und lustiges Beisammensein mit Leuten aus der halben Welt).

    We would definitely love to come back! (Jederzeit wieder!)

  • This place was amazing!

    It is the perfect layout for an AirBnB property: your own private space but plenty of chances to meet others around the pool, kitchen, and other community family rooms.

    The actual home is even nicer than the photos.

    We enjoyed the jacuzzi and hammocks everyday.

    The birds, koi pond, and Trevor and Gage (their dogs) gave the place a special feel as well.

    Highly recommended.

  • Amazing, fantastic, absolutely enjoyable, true to description, fabulous hosts, great atmosphere, location was perfect!
    Jeff and George are an absolute treat. They have an enticing home with beautiful rooms, each with a private bathroom. There are many community areas and the kitchen is a masterpiece. We really enjoyed the family atmosphere, Jeff's mother and sister were there a couple of mornings to help with breakfast and the animals made us feel right at home, especially Elvis the cockatiel. My wife mentioned many times he might come up missing when we left!!! Jeff and George are knowledgeable references for things to do, places to see and eat throughout the Tampa Area. We will be back and we will stay with Jeff and George, that is a Guarantee!!! Guys, thank you so much!

    In Health to your Wealth and Success!

  • I had an amazing time staying with Jeff. The pictures don't do the house justice - it is even more beautiful in person!! I would love to stay here again next time I visit Tampa.

    November 2012
  • Best AirBNB we've been to! Jeff and George are terrific hosts, the dogs and birds are just delightful, and the suite was luxurious. We were sorry to have to leave. Great experience!

    January 2014
  • Jeff was a great host. The house was much better then i expected! Just check the pictures - it looks awesome but all is better then that! If you visit Tampa or think to come to this area a stay here is a must!

    It is a great value! Don't miss it!

    January 2014
  • Wow! What a phenomenal house and hosts! The accommodations were absolutely first rate, but it was George and Jeff (or Jeff and George) that made the visit so memorable. I now consider this my new home away from home in Tampa. This was my first AirB&B experience and these guys set the bar very high.

    November 2013
  • Second time staying with Jeff and George. Top notch as always, these two really go out of their way to make sure guests are comfortable and well-taken care-of. Pretty much the only place I will stay in Tampa. Thanks you two for a wonderful, restful space again in the midst of my busy learning time during my conference in Tampa!
