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.

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 direct, but does require a transfer at the Marion Street Station

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

PLEASE NOTE - Although we have pets, and we are a "PET FRIENDLY" establishment, we do not allow guests to bring their pets, unless the animal

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

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

What a fantastic Airbnb. Jeff and his partner were both extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The house is gorgeous and very large. My room was big with a large balcony over the river. The house can be as social or private as the guests would like. Will definitely stay here anytime I am in Tampa. Drew

I was attending a week-long conference at the Tampa convention center and this was a great crash pad. It was close enough to downtown that I was just a few minutes out of downtown by my car, but about half the price of the high rise hotels near the convention center. It was a working trip for me - wish I'd had time to take better advantage of the amenities.

Everything was as pictured and the other guest that were there was just as friendly as Jeff. I even got to meet the grandkids. The amenities provided were excellent, it was being in my home. It was the true meaning of " Mi casa es tu casa".

As a first time Airbnb, this spot was definitely an unique experience. From the moment I stepped into the door to entering my room it was very welcoming. Jeff and George are wonderful host, always open to assist with any questions/concern. Their pets definitely bring the experience to a another level. From the moment you are greeted by the door with their lovable dogs to when Elvis as everyone raves would melt your heart as he cuddle around your chest while petting him. The room was everything as advertised, and the scent diffuser just gave it atmosphere a finish elegant touch. I would definitely consider staying here again when I do come back to stay in the Tampa area.

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.
