Stay in a family home in the beautiful, trendy Seminole Heights. Walk to foodie restaurants and beer pubs, find out why everyone wants to live here in the Heights!
Beautiful home in centrally located area of Tampa-- historic Old Seminole Heights neighborhood: stroll through the Oak canopies, gazing at the historical homes prevalent in this neighborhood - this is a safe and walking friendly neighborhood, located within driving distance to everything the greater Tampa Bay area has to offer. Minutes to Busch Gardens theme parks, Lowry park zoo, and the Football stadium. There are restaurants within walking distance of the house, a 24 hour starbucks a few blocks away, (email hidden) pub (the independent) is a block away.
We're travelers at heart, so we'll definitely point you towards the great things in Tampa Bay area. Open minded people, willing to host GLBT.
We have one Master bedroom with a king sized bed---there is also space for another twin sized bed if needed in this bedroom but then it would be tighter quarters. Outside of that room is a fold down futon (with a memory foam mattress, so very comfortable!) and we can also place a twin sized bed if that is needed there for extra sleeping space. The room with the futon is open with the kitchen space so it isn't completely private, it is a suitable space for children etc. The bathroom is adjoining the master bedroom with twin sinks, a shower and a toilet. We have lots of towels available for guests so you don't have to carry them.
The whole house (3 bedroom, 2 baths, sleeps large parties with many, many beds/sleeping options) in a separate listing. Please see it under profile or contact if you have questions about availability.space for air mattresses if you are a larger group or have lots of kids :D
We have one tiny puppy--- she is very excited to meet new people and friendly with most other pets and we are willing to consider having your pet stay here depending on size and personality.
We love sharing our neighborhood and city with visitors and potential new residents, so we look forward to meeting you and being a part of your Tampa experience!
**Please message me with information about your travel and and a personal introduction prior to making a booking-we will respond promptly**
The kitchen is shared and you are welcome to use it as well as our refrigerator for your food as well.
I am around throughout the days and evenings on a fluctuating schedule, if you would like to know more about the area or hang out, just ask... I try to respect your space but I am around if you need me. Also, feel free to text or email any questions you may have about the home or area... we love Tampa, and if we don't know the answer, I likely know someone who does :)
The house decor has changed somewhat since the photos were taken. Still much of the same things, but slightly rearranged, repainted etc :)
*Smoking is permitted outside only (be considerate with your butts, we don't want them in our garden.)
*Kitchen is available for use (shared), please clean up after yourself.
* If you need to use the computer, you are welcome to use the extra one but we do not have a printer set up at this time.
*Outside areas are open to your use- porch, patio, small fire pit.
*Pet policy is limited based on size (small to medium), friendly and not destructive. Please discuss your animal with us before arrival. If your animal doesn't get along with our dog, obviously we'll have to keep them in separate rooms. You will be held accountable for any damage done by your pet, as we would expect the same with our pup when we travel.
*Please be respectful of common courtesy: we work and go to school, so don't be loud late at night (we don't have a curfew or anything, but if you do come home late, do it quietly please). We sometimes have to get up early for work/school, but we'll extend the opposite courtesy of being quiet so you can continue to sleep if you wish.
* Check-in/Check-out time is flexible, speak with us about your plans. We are more than willing to hold your bags for you if you need to leave them for a late flight or other reason. The rest of the house space is additionally available for your use (as is the room if we don't have another guest coming. Again, speak to us).
