My boyfriend and I stayed at Jeff and George's home for a while and are sad to be leaving. The home is absolutely gorgeous, you can tell they spend a lot of time designing it. The pool, hot tub and kitchen were some of our favorite areas. Our room was very private with a beautiful bathroom and enough storage to make us feel like we weren't living out of our suitcases. Jeff and George are amazing hosts and create an awesome atmosphere in the home. The dogs and birds are awesome too! I would definitely recommend staying here, you won't find a better place! We will absolutely be back to visit again.

We stayed at Jeff's while my daughter attended orientation at the University of South Florida. This was the first time I chose accommodations on Airbnb and the first time I have chosen in this type of home environment. From our first few moments I knew this was the perfect place. The space was beautiful, the hosts welcoming, and the experience was unique....just as I hoped. My skeptical teenager fell in love with the whole vibe! It was such a nice departure from the Hilton or other typical accommodations. Definitely recommend and hope to stay again very soon! This Airbnb newbie is hooked! Thanks to Jeff and George!

This is our second time here, we had a great time. George was welcoming and explained everything to us. The pool and whirlpool was a plus for a weekend of relaxing with the hubby. We were able to find the place with no issues. They provide breakfast which is great.

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.
