“Great place close to downtown”

My daughter and I stayed here for two weeks. She attended a dance program at the conservatory in town. The commute was very convenient from this location and was close to any place in Tampa. The house is less than five minutes drive to I-275. We were 30-60 minutes to the beach (depending on which beach we chose). There are very nice parks nearby for morning walks and seeing some wildlife.

It's a comfortable two bedroom one and a half bath rental. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need. We ate here almost exclusively, which saved a lot of money over the two weeks. The beds were quite comfortable. There is a lovely veranda and garden that I wish I could've enjoyed more but it was very hot and humid at this time. The owners were very nice and helpful. They were readily available if needed. There is parking on the property, off the street and near the door. Very well lit at night. The neighborhood was very quiet at night (except for some occasionally misbehaving frogs).

Plenty of space in this upstairs apartment with 2 bedrooms, a large family room, lovely kitchen and eating area and a bonus sun porch! The hosts were very warm and helpful - and have decorated the place delightfully and equipped it with all necessities. They also recommended places to see and some great local restaurants.

Christie & Stuart are excellent hosts. They have made 'Southern Charm' a home from home. It is beautiful accomodation with everything you need. They even thought of us Brits with a kettle and teapot.

If you want to go downtown to Tampa, without your hire-car, there is an excellent bus service into Marion Transit Center with connections from there to the surrounding area. Make sure you buy a Visitor Pass.

The owners couldn't have been more helpful and charming. The upstairs flat is excellent with every convenience. The location is great in a quiet residential area not far from the Interstate for getting around the locality quickly. There are shopping and eating places close by. The flat has two double bedrooms, a spacious lounge, well equipped kitchen and bathroom and a large area for parking. The flat has a verandah facing the road that provides an alternative eating or relaxing area where you can listen to the wonderful bird song. It is everything that it claims to be. A real find.

“CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, CONVENIENT WITH CONSIDERATE HOSTS”

Our stay at the rental could only be summed up by saying we felt right at home!
The apartment is clean, airy and well appointed with everything you need for a comfy, welcoming visit to the Tampa region.
What you can expect: The owners are extremely approachable, friendly and very knowledgeable about the area and a good resource. The apartment has virtually everything you have at home including washer and dryer, very nice modern appliances, PLENTY of cooking and eating utensils, a HUGE private screened-in porch, comfortable beds and furniture, quality towels and linen, a dining area to accommodate six, a complete entertainment system, a bookcase with varied reading material and games – all within a quiet yet central setting just minutes from interstate I-275.
The place was spotless when we arrived. The owners obviously take genuine pride in their rental. Another plus is that the flooring is wood or tile with no carpet to aggravate allergies.
Bonus- if you happen to like dogs, you’ll love their gentle, well-behaved Doberman!
Be advised the apartment is on the second story, so there are stairs involved. However they are spacious and easy to navigate.
Overall, whether for a night or a month, if you’re looking for a low traffic yet conveniently central ‘home away from home’ in Tampa you can’t go wrong here.

Loved staying in the historic district in this immaculate and quiet apt. Modern amenities. Decorated with flair. Owners couldn't do enough for you-- so accommodating, yet you are private. Close to I-275, yet no noise. Convenient location. Felt like I was experiencing a real neighborhood. I would definitely come back.
