The Space

Welcome to Ybor City! Tampa's historic district. We are in the heart of the district, walking distance to all the sights, flavors and sounds Ybor has to offer. Come stay with us and have access to Tampa's finest restaurants, cigar bars, live music venues, museums and so much more!
Our loft was built in 1918 and has all the charm of a historic building but has been completely remodeled and updated. The loft occupies the entire second floor of a 2 story building( no elevator) and has 4 bedrooms, which have a king bed, queen bed, full bed, and full size futon. Two full baths and state of the art kitchen with all the cooking utensils you'll need. Washer and dryer is in the loft as well. This place is huge with 12 foot ceilings, a pool table and huge balcony for hanging out and enjoying the district from above. The living room has a l shaped leather couch and 60 inch Sony tv with surround sound speakers and Verizon FIOS tv and wi-fi Internet. hardwood floors throughout the entire loft! another HUGE bonus is we have private GATED PARKING at our building that will fit 4 cars, and more if you stay on the weekend. We are one of the only residences in Ybor that has private parking, no public garage or street parking to mess with!

Ybor is very central to everything in the Tampa area. A 10 minute ride on the trolley car line takes you to the Channelside and downtown, which is home to the Tampa Bay Times Forum, Aquarium, Convention Center and Straz Performing Arts Center. Busch Gardens, Raymond James stadium, George Steinbrenner Field and the Hard Rock Casino are all within 10-15 minute driving distance. If you are wanting a day trip to the beach or fishing, the beautiful Fort Desoto, St Petersburg and Clearwater beaches are a 45 minute drive from the loft. And don't forget all the golf courses in Tampa too!!

  • This was a great spot! I stayed with 6 of my friends for a graduation trip. The place was located in a great spot and the rest of the amenities were as advertised. The pool table, TV, internet, and other connection services were a conduit for a great time. If we go back to Tampa, we would definitely use this spot again!

  • My colleagues and I had a great time staying at Lauren's place during a recent conference. The space was beautiful and a nice change from the normal business hotels. Picking up the keys was easy and Lauren was very responsive when we had a plumbing issue (it was fixed the next day).

    A few things to note - both bathrooms are ensuite to two bedrooms. And two bedrooms are connected such that you need to walk through the bedroom with the futon to get to another bedroom. This wasn't the best for our work trip but we made it work.

    The best part was that Ybor City was walkable! It was nice to stretch our legs and see a part of the city. We took Uber to the Convention Center as the trolley only runs during the afternoon. I would definitely recommend Lauren's place if you're looking in Tampa!

  • I spent one week with two colleagues in order to attend a conference. The appartment is exactly as advertised and ideally situated to enjoy the historic area of Ybor City. The information and instructions provided by Lauren have been very precise and useful. I warmly recommend Lauren and this appartment should you need to visit Tampa.

  • I stayed here with 3 colleagues for a conference in April, and would definitely recommend it. The apartment is airy, spacious and well equipped. It's in a great location, but is still surprisingly quiet given how close it is to the bars and restaurants of Ybor City.

  • Great location, nice space with lots of room. Gated parking and pool table are nice features. Worked perfect for us, 6 guys in town for Spring Training close to Yanks, Phillies and Blue Jays.

  • We rented the apartment for NY Eve with a group of eight. The place is awesome, it is spacious, well decorated and furnished and absolutely central to everything you need in Tampa (Ybor). The pool table in the living room is THE highlight of the apartment besides the great big balcony where you have a great view! The kitchen is big and has everything you need to cook and eat. The two bathrooms with showers were very clean and modern. Having a personal parking lot is very good, because you don't have to pay for and leave the car on the streets.
    All in all the place is perfect for big groups - we really enjoyed the place and can recommend it without exception! 5 stars!

  • Myself and 5 co-workers stayed at Lauren's beautiful loft in Ybor during a business trip. This place was perfect and everything we could have asked for! Located a block away from the heart of Ybor, it was easy to hop around to all the bars and restaurants before retreating back to the loft for a game of pool and some brews. A+ we plan on staying here again in the future!

  • The apartment was very centrally located in Ybor City and was very comfortable and clean. Rooms are very large and the pool table in the lounge room was a real bonus. Lauren's instructions on how to get the keys were very clear and she made sure we had no problems. Ybor City (email hidden)ly area so there is a bit of noise at night at the weekends, but that's part of the deal staying in Ybor City. Inside the apartment was nice a quiet and we had no problems. Transport was really close by (both bus and tram). Highly recommended.
