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

The Space

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, 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.

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.

  • Danielle is a really gracious host who is super-friendly. We got on right away having a nice conversation in her well-appointed kitchen. She invited me out to dinner with and I met three of her friends where we had great food and really great company.

    In addition to her kitchen, she has a really beautiful home that was built in 20s and is extremely charming. The room was so quiet and comfortable and I slept like a baby. I loved how quiet it was. Danielle was up and out early with a family commitment but was kind enough to leave a handwritten note. I ended up having to return the following morning because I left something and she was kind enough to allow me to stop by on my way home.

    I am really looking forward to visiting again and having being a guest in her home again very soon.

  • I enjoyed my stay in Tampa thanks to this place. Danielle was a great host, she responded to us right away when we arrived and had the house set up to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Danielle provided us with a list of places to visit around Tampa and gave us some introspective on what living there is like. All around a great stay, thank you Danielle for your hospitality and generosity.

  • My experience with the host was very welcoming . Danielle was personable
    and provided a tranquil home . I come from the Big Apple and it
    is very noisy. I was able to sleep comfortably in a nice neat house.
    The surrounding area was also enticing. Palm trees and very sunny .
    My last day there , I caught last minute sun rays in her back yard.
    Thanks again for the excellent service. Although I was around and about ,
    I was able to meet Danielle and we chat. I find her to be kind and hospitable .
    I would like to visit again and I also would recommended as a great stay.

  • Danielle was great! She was there when we arrived to show us the place, and immediately was extremely friendly and helpful. We arrived in the evening and were in a social mood, so Danielle took us out to a Cuban restaurant, drove us back, and we hung out having drinks late into the evening. Most times we have a good stay, but it's not every stay that has such a friendly and outgoing host.

    As far as the place itself, it's very simple and comfortable. We were only there for a short time, but it's definitely a place you could sit back and relax in.

  • Danielle was a wonderful host during our 6 night stay. She provided us with lots of great suggestions of things to do locally, and was very friendly and helpful (answering questions, offering coffee in the morning, inviting us out to have drinks, etc). The house was clean and comfortable, and located in a lovely neighborhood not far from cafes, bars, and bus lines. We would definitely stay here again!

  • 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!
