About Lauren T

We love having this vacation rental property. We completely renovated the property in 2008, updating the kitchen, bathrooms and much more while still keeping the original charm of the building. We moved out of the property into the 'burbs' with our first child but are glad we were able to keep it so other guests can come stay and enjoy the city of Ybor!

Lauren T purchased this house in 2007

Why Lauren T chose Ybor City

Location, location, location! You will gasp when you walk in the door and see this hidden gem in the heart of Centro Ybor City. The 11 foot ceilings and skylights in the living room make it that much more fabulous then I've been able to capture in the pictures here.

What makes this house unique

Walk to everything in Ybor or hop on the trolley to Channelside and Downtown Tampa!

The loft is a great place in the middle of Ybor. Close to everything...but not too close! The loft had everything and more for our group. Nice evenings on the balcony without the noise of 7th Ave. we will definitely be back! Thank you!!!

An Amazing Stay in Tampa

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a great time staying in this beautiful loft in Tampa's historic Ybor district during National Championship Weeekend. The setup was wonderful and spacious with tall ceilings, and lots of room for group gatherings in the central living area. There was more than enough room for parking as well. The Ybor area was also full of restaurants and bars in walking distance. Everyone had complimented me for booking this loft after our trip. I highly recommend doing so.

Enormous living area and great balcony.

  • 4 of 5

Location of the flat was great. Walking distance to lots of shopping and fun food and drink places. The flat as a very large living area (pool table I. The main room) and we loved sitting on the balcony with our drinks.

I do feel that the place needs a through deep cleaning. the bathrooms were not clean when we arrived. The dust bunnies were everywhere. This place is older and it has lots of character. With a little effort and elbow grease it could really be a top performer. One mention to stairway entrance- you really need motion lights back there. It is quite dangerous to go up or down in the dark. Over all -a fun experience- perfect for our wedding weekend activities.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review and glad you enjoyed your stay. I had the cleaning team do a separate deep clean after your comments about the dust bunnies, thanks for bringing that to our attention. Also, the back patio has 2 sets of lights on each of the fans but I noticed after your stay that the light pulls were off so I just pulled them and the lights were back in business. Guests do have to flip the switch each night to put these on however...often times guests don't notice this BUT there are definitely lights back there if you turn them on each night.
