About the property

Centrally Located 3/1 Upstairs In A Bungalow With Tree Views. Sleeps Up To 6

You will feel like your own vacation once you arrive at this beautiful 1925 bungalow in the historical district of Tampa. Southern Living named this area of Tampa as one of the most charming areas to live! This 3/1 1,050 square ft home is on the upstairs of a grand arts and crafts style home. Decorated in a style that will certainly take you on a vacation in your mind. A hanging bed greets you on your private screened in porch..perfect for lounging or reading. Once you enter, there is a comfy sleeper couch with cable TV and wireless internet provided. Laundry located on the property as well. And for all the ladies, a local hair stylist who will come to you if you want to get your hair styled or just a great blow dry! House is located minutes from Lowry Park and Busch Gardens. Walk to all the fun restaurants on Florida ave..(i.e. The Refinery, The Independent and Cappys!)

If you have an urge to see water, well this property is a block from the Hillsborough River and Rivercrest park where there is a 2-3 mile walking/running trail. Bring your bike. Lots to see and explore in these neighborhoods.

House is only 45 minutes from the beaches, 10 min from downtown and Ybor, and about an hour and 1/2 to Orlando.

About Rebecca Schleifer

I grew up in a very small town in Tennessee and I have always loved the water. That is how I ended up in Florida. I have my own design and consultation firm as well as my real estate license. I love transforming properties into pieces of art or really fun places for people to stay. This particular vacation rental was designed with alot of extra creativity so someone could really feel like they 'got away' and when they return home they will feel refreshed. Hope you enjoy!

Rebecca Schleifer purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Rebecca Schleifer chose South Seminole Heights

I bought this house because I love arts and crafts style houses and more importantly Seminole Heights just seemed to fit my personality! It is laid-back living and the people at the local grocery store and restaurants have time to carry on a conversation:)

What makes this bungalow unique

Porches, high ceilings, wood floors and carriage houses! I love all of them..and this house has them all. It also has tons of windows and the upstairs unit is surrounded by Big Oak Trees. The upstairs unit has some really special things going on with it such as a hanging bed on the original sleeping porch and the dog wallpaper in the bathroom.

This VRBO was just as the pictures showed.... spacious, impeccably decorated. The location was ideal being so close to a park for walking and very easy access to shopping and the airport. Rebecca was wonderful and quick to respond and give helpful tips.

Great place to stay in Tampa

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Tampa as a group of 5 to stay there for two weeks. We were in contact with the owner quite a while before we arrived and she was quick to answer any questions and help us out. This way, she had the grill and coal ready for us when we set foot on the lovely property. We had enough sleeping possibilities for everyone of us to have one for himself. The house was clean and comfortable with all necessary appliances and a nice interior design, just as shown in the pictures. Whenever we had a problem or wish, the owner would help us out as good as she could. We enjoyed our stay a lot and were always happy to come home to this house after our day trips. We can happily recommend it and will try to book it again for our next trip.
