Ranked as a Top 10 Hottest Airbnb Rental in Tampa Bay by the Tampa Bay Business Journal, retreat & relax in this Key West-style cottage or use as base camp for the MANY adventures nearby! Detached from the main home & separated by a tranquil and fun backyard area for you to enjoy. Pets welcome - fee is $30/pet (up to 2).

The space
The cottage is studio-style with one queen bed and one futon, which doubles as the couch. There is a window a/c unit and portable heater, which provide more than adequate heating and cooling. The bathroom will be newly renovated as of 7/10/18 - note that bathroom/kitchen sink is in the common area . Kitchenette includes a microwave, toaster oven, coffee-maker (& coffee supplies), dishes, silverware and a mini-fridge. There is a television w/ an HDTV antenna, which pulls in many local stations in HD.

Guest access
You'll have full access to the entire back yard and cottage from a side-gate that leads from your parking spot in the driveway.

Other things to note
Please note that the cottage was once a garage and converted into a quaint living space. While it is not luxury, all of my guests have found the cottage to be more than sufficient for their needs.

Tampa, Florida, United States

Riverside Heights is an up-and-coming area in Tampa and is in a very central location. It could be considered "urban core" as it is very close to downtown and definitely has more of an urban feel to it. Historic Seminole Heights borders to the North and Historic Tampa Heights borders to the East and South. The West Side's border is the Hillsborough River.

A recovering attorney I'm now in real estate and truly enjoy playing match-maker, helping people find their perfect homes in our amazing city of Tampa!! I love to travel, find adventures and meet new people anywhere and everywhere I go. Tampa has grown exponentially in the past few years and has so much to offer! I love sharing this amazing city with anyone willing to explore it! I enjoy meeting my guests during their stay and hearing about their adventures, but I also realize that some would rather have privacy and I respect that as well. We may have drinks and share stories around the firepit or we may never meet during your (Website hidden by Airbnb) up to you! Just come and enjoy!

During your stay
If I am in town, I'm typically always available to help and may even be able to hang some evenings. I absolutely love meeting new people and sitting around the firepit and/or playing Jenga. However, I can also appreciate if you'd rather have a quiet stay with privacy. Even if I'm out of town, I'm only a phone-call or text away, although I won't be able to have beer with you in the yard (sigh).
