Then there are the DISCLAIMERS.... DISCLAIMER I.

DISCLAIMER II - from time to time maintenance and repairs are required, so there may be an occasion when the pool or hot tub may not be available. That is beyond our control, and we ask in advance for your understanding. Thanks, Jeff & George

Guest access

Guests will have access to all the common areas, such as kitchen, den, living room, dining room, pool, hot tub, sun decks and multiple courtyards. Guests may also use the laundry facility if needed.

Interaction with guests

You choose whether you want to be reclusive and spend most of your time in your own private suite, or socialize in the kitchen, common areas with other guests and us. You are always invited to join us in the kitchen when we are cooking to chat and "USUALLY" enjoy a glass of wine or two.

The neighborhood

Seminole Heights is a historic district, so the area is very safe, with beautiful homes AND, NO CHAIN RESTAURANTS. All the fabulous restaurants in the area are unique and a nice blend from organic vegetarian to Italian, to sports bar to pizzeria or sushi.

Getting around

ALTHOUGH NOT REQUIRED, renting a car is the best option as Tampa Bay is very spread out and mass transit is limited to bus.

However if you are attending a convention downtown, the mass transit to the convention center is easy, inexpensive and fairly quick.

WALKING is safe and easy in the neighborhood and you will find everything from grocery store to restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and pharmacy.

Other things to note

Although we have pets, and we are a "PET FRIENDLY" establishment, we do not allow guests to bring their pets - NO EXCEPTIONS

We provide towels, sheets, pillows and blankets and other luxuries, as well as body wash and shampoo

Housekeeping will provide fresh linen and towels to guest staying longer than 6 nights.

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.

Simple, central, and easy to find. Right on the waterfront. Easy to walk to restaurants and local stuff. House has a lot of activity with family/kids/dogs, but the upstairs rooms (where you stay) are nice and private, with private bathrooms/balconies. I shared the location with several locals for the future.

This was the second time I have stayed with Jeff and The River House. It is great. Super clean and organized, safe and conveniently located to downtown Tampa. There are restaurants within walking distance and a nice path to walk along the river right out the front door. I would higly recommend.

Jeff User ProfileJeff is a superhost.

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.
