Historic Mediterranean Getaway

House - Private room · N Suwanee Ave, Tampa, FL 33604, United States

The Space

Get away to Old Seminole Heights in comfort. I've got a cozy bedroom with your name on it.

The home was build in 1926 and has original hardwood floors throughout. You'll have full use of the entire kitchen (fresh herbs, gas stove, microwave, dishwasher, and fridge). There's also a charcoal grill.

The bathroom is shared but I work pretty early so this shouldn't be a problem.

I've got a vintage picnic basket that you can use to take a stroll down to one of our many parks on the river.

If you prefer a night in I've got you covered with board games and, for the rare cold night in Tampa, I have a fire pit for warming things up.

You'll be in walking distance of several award winning restaurants, bars, parks, and local shops. Check out the maps section; I've tagged all my favorite places.

Guest Access

You'll have access to the entire home with the exception of my bedroom.

Interaction with Guests

I'm usually up for grabbing a drink or dinner.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is one of the friendliest I've come across in Florida. This is the type of place where neighbors not only know your name, they're your friends.

I'm part of a weekly neighborhood dinner party where one person in the group hosts a dinner for the rest of the group. If you're in town on this day, you're more than welcome to join us.

You'll be in walking distance of several award winning restaurants, bars, parks, and local shops. Check out the maps section; I've tagged all my favorite places.

Getting around

The bus stop that takes you downtown is less than a block away - although Tampa isn't public transportation friendly.

This is a very central Tampa location, really in the middle of everything so you'll never have a long ride to get to where you're going. Busch Gardens and a few shopping malls are about 10 minutes away.

You are free to use my vintage bike when I'm not using it (I hardly ever ride it).

Other Things to Note

If you need a more private getaway, I rent the entire place for $129/night. Just check out my other listing.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Thanks, Danielle, for this great, relaxing time at your place! I just loved it, I slept fantastic, the neighborhood is interesting and I am actually just sad that we didn't had a chance to get to talk more :).
    I definitely recommend this host and place to everybody!

  • This was my first time using AirBNB and I wasn't sure on what to expect but I had a great time staying with Danielle. She was super hospitable and made me feel right at home when we met. If you ever find yourself needing a place to stay in the Tampa location, I would def. recommend her place.

  • All I can say is, "WOW!" This home was so charming and well stocked with everything I needed. The home had a really nice energy to it - and was very peaceful. Danielle worked with my 'late arrival' and I hardly heard her departure the next morning. The kitchen was such a great space and we enjoyed sitting on the porch drinking our coffee.

  • Danielle is a great host and the place is fantastic. Needless to say it is better than the Sheraton - case closed!

    Needless to say, next time I am in Tampa I'll hope to be staying here.

  • This was truly a historic getaway location. This old locality is home to a friendly community and well supported unique venues (cafes, bars, restaurants). Although the kitchen was well equipped, I didn't get to use is as there were too many nearby local establishments worth visiting that Danielle can advise on.
    I loved the style of the house, and the room was more than adequate with a very comfortable bed.

    Danielle was very transparent with all of her communication. She is a notable host with a warm heart!

    Great house, great community, great host, great experience!

  • Danielle has a really nice place!
    Very clean and lovely!

  • Danielle was a great host. Even though she was out of town for the weekend she was great with commutation & made sure I was taken care of. Her place was nice and the location is perfect. Also the bed was super comfortable. I would highly recommend using her place next time you are around the Tampa area.

    March 2014
  • Danielle was a great host! The room was really clean and quiet - exactly what I needed. The neighborhood was a hidden gem. Lots of local vendors nearby and the neighborhood is reminiscent of old Florida. Danielle gave me a brochure of all the local vendors and recommended a few places that I definitely want to check out on my next trip.

  • This was my first time using Air for a private room in someone else's house as I had always rented an entire house....I don't think I could have asked for a better host! A perfect balance of leaving me to my own devices and privacy and making me feel at home and included....Danielle has a clean house and I will definitely stay again the next time I'm in town:)

    February 2014
  • Danielle was an awesome host! Her home is beautiful and she was very flexible with our schedules while were were in town. We stayed with Danielle while we were looking for home rentals before our move to Tampa and she offered lots of advice about good areas to live, where to eat and socialize, and even which realtors to talk to! An overall wonderful stay in a beautiful city!
