This place was simply amazing. Everything we thought we'd need/want was accessible and easy to use. Their dogs are adorable and their birds love to talk and interact. The bed/couches were uber comfortable. Will definitely use this location again if I'm ever in Tampa.

Highly recommend staying with Jeff and George. They were able to recommend places for food and fun. We loved the several unique local restaurants that were within walking distance as well as the riverfront park across the street. This place is a destination on its own with all the lovable animals and amenities that are included - beware you may never want to leave.

Jeff & George are fantastic hosts and we enjoyed our stay so much. This was our first Airbnb experience and we didn't know what to expect but we were blown away. Their home is absolutely beautiful and has everything you need and more. Their pet dogs and parrots are also fab and we had a big soft spot for them all. Thank you so much again Jeff & George. We would love to return!

This was our first AirBnB experience and Jeff and George set the bar very high. The River House is better than the photos - which are stunning. They have added beautiful wood trellises around the property that are adorned with gorgeous bougainvillea. There are a few fire tables that aren't in some of the photos. We used one almost every evening. There are also comfortable swings on the front porch and a double in the back by the pool. We didn't use the pool but my husband used the hot tub with ease and he loved it. There is a river right across the street with a great paved walking/running trail. It was lovely! There is also a bench right out front to sit on and enjoy the river. We always felt SAFE. The house has several rooms for rent but we rarely saw anyone. Every room has its own private deck. We utilized the upstairs beverage bar daily and there is an ice maker up there as well. Great touch. They have beautiful Standard Poodles that never barked in the ten days we were there. They are lovely animals in every way. Now my husband wants one ! The cockatoo makes some noise but he's as friendly as the dogs. They put the birds in covered cages in the evenings and you don't hear a peep from them - there is a charming aviary off the dining room. Location, location , location! The home is in a neighborhood that has a variety of price points. Don't let that bother you! It's safe and very quiet. It's also a couple of blocks from the interstate BUT we found taking the local main streets during rush hour saved time and traffic. We used the interstate during the day and late evening hours. Your hosts - Jeff & George- are wonderful! They honestly love to share their home, we felt welcomed from the start. There was a self serve breakfast set out every morning. I have severe food allergies and was able to cook when I needed to. They let us use beach umbrellas and towels - they have plenty for all the guests. They are around most of the time to offer directions or ideas of what to do. We really enjoyed them as people. If everyone in the world were like Jeff & George there would be no hate, no wars, and no loneliness. They have a large family that they love and you will see them if you stay long enough. They have the gift of hospitality and it shows. Thank you Jeff & George!

Excellent location, beautiful house, and friendly host! Would come back if in Tampa again!

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.
