There is also a pull out couch and queen size air mattress to accommodate larger parties.Two full en suite 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.

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!!
Interaction with Guests
You let yourself into the loft. I will message you the parking lot code and back door keypad code a day ahead of your arrival.
The TECO trolley in Ybor City can easily get you from the loft to the Tampa Convention Center,, Amalie arena, Channelside district, and the Florida Aquarium.
please no smoking or pets allowed. You may smoke on the balcony outside.
Had a wonderful time. The flat we stayed at was wonderful. Loved the balcony outside to enjoy a cigar, cocktail, and board game! Location is perfect, as it is in walking distance (3-4 blocks) of most of Ybor City. Park your vehicle in their gated parking lot, and you won't need it again if you want to stay in the area.
The host was easy to communicate with. The space was perfect. Plenty of hang out central area. Nice, usable kitchen. Close to everything including the tram station, breweries and clubs. Free parking was great. Very clean.
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.
