Private king-bed suite with en-suite bathroom, wifi, fridge, pool & lake.
The house has very fast wi-fi, TV with cable (e.g. HBO) and many sports channels, international news, parking etc. It is very clean with a guest lounge and dining room, and pool and access to the main kitchen, tea, coffee, etc. There is wine, beer, snacks etc.
Breakfasts are included - we can make these for you, or you can make your own. There is a laundry room with washer and dryer, soap powder etc.
Some photographs were taken after the Airbnb photographer came, when the King Suite only had a futon. Both suites have new TVs.
Suite 1: Downstairs. A large light (non-smoking) room with bay window overlooking gardens. En-suite bathroom, new TV and comfortable couch. Queen bed with high-quality new mattress. The headboard was installed after the AirBnb "official" photographs were taken, and shows the room in evening light.
Suite 2: Upstairs. This is the entire upstairs section of the house, and is a very large, light, (non-smoking) with an en-suite bathroom with bath and shower and vanity. This suite has its own fridge and air conditioning system. The bed is king-size and there is also seating with a high-quality futon-style bed. There is a new desk.
There are various photographs. I have left the AirBnb photos, with the room before the king bed, and before the new 32" television. There are also pictures of the room after the king bed and tartan headboard were installed.
The pool has a lake view, with a conservation area on the other side of the small lake. The wifi area reaches the pool and the deep lanai.
There are restaurants, a coffee bar, pharmacy, post office etc and other stores with easy walking distance, and there is a bus close by, but one really needs a car in Tampa Bay. Public transit is not great. There are several malls "close by" in Tampa Bay terms - i.e. a 10 - 15 minute drive. (Brandon Mall, Wiregrass Mall etc.)
This part of Tampa Bay is the golfing, academic, Busch Gardens, medical etc side of Tampa. There are dozens of golf courses, and Hilton is knowledgeable about these.
We believe that this accommodation is suited to adults, perhaps with older teens on their way to college. The house is not suitable for children as the pool is not fenced, and too far from the beach.
Glynis speaks French and SA Dutch. We love international visitors, and take special care of medical visitors. We have also hosted business, academic and professional people, university parents and new students going to college. We can help these groups with our knowledge and experience of the area.
The house is relatively close to USF and to many major medical centers like Moffitt. It is close to the I75-Bruce B Downs off-ramp.
There are pleasant walks and hundreds of great places to visit in Tampa Bay. We can answer most questions about these or provide resource material.
This accommodation is unusual in that we're experts on Tampa Bay business, and on international soft landings. We are both deeply involved in volunteer economic development work. We know the German and French consuls and other members of the consular corps, and have extensive experience of "soft landings" in Tampa Bay.
We train the International Trade Certificate for USF, and enjoy introducing our guests to the right people for their needs.
