About the property

Well Located, Easy Access All Locations

Our Tampa Bungalow sleeps six with four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

It has travertine floors and cavernous cathedral ceilings and is about 2200 Sq feet of relaxing, cool Florida living.

When you are not indoors, you can relax in the screened porch with a glass of wine. It is screened so that the Florida State bird, the mosquito will not carry you away.

If you want to exercise, you could grill a steak out on the patio, or do some clothes washing in the laundry room.

The Bungalow has two king beds and two twin beds spread out over four bedrooms.

The location is very convenient to Downtown, Busch Gardens, USF, Moffit, Clearwater, Disney and most of central Florida. The Convention center and Downtown is 20 minutes (13 miles) away, Bush Gardens, Moffitt and USF are 6 - 7 miles away. Perfect!

In three miles, you can be on I-275, and in two miles, you can be on your way to the airport on the Veterans Expressway.

Just around the corner is a great, quiet road that is convenient for walking and (god forbid) jogging. If you are going to jog, let me know so I can pour a gin and tonic, and come and watch.

We have a playground and plenty of room to roam for the kids and pets. Our bungalow is pet friendly.

We supply linens and bedding, bath towels, paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, hand soap, coffee filters....just bring your clothes and food. We will not complain if you don't bring your clothes, so just bring food!

We have two excellent Publix grocery stores very near by, and Dale Mabry with it's hundreds of restaurants is two miles West. Yes, you cannot escape two local Walmart super centers either.

On a rainy day, you can watch Netflix or cable on our smart TV, or you can surf the web and throw youTube videos to the tv for the family to marvel at!

It takes about 20 minutes to downtown, 25 minutes to the Airport, 25 miles to the nearest top DR Beach pick for the famous Florida beaches. We are seven miles to Busch Gardens, USF and Moffit, 13 miles to the convention center and generally within easy access of most of central Florida.

We have owned the Tampa Bungalow since 2008, and it is a very nice, comfortable home.

Come and stay with us!

About Jonathan

When folks stay with us, I see a lot of dynamics that give me and them enormous satisfaction:

I have seen families getting to spend time with each other or to unite and welcome a newborn in to the world. I see graduations being celebrated with great joy. I watch families come together to grieve the loss of a loved one. I have folks visit to take the kids to Bush Gardens, or to attend a conference. Some of my guests are here working on special projects.

Through it all, I do enjoy helping them be comfortable with their families and seeing them enjoy our home and the surrounding area.

Jonathan purchased this house in 2008

A beautiful, clean, relaxing place to rest

  • 5 of 5

My parents and I visited Tampa for Spring Training. This cottage was conveniently located to the Steinbrenner park, grocery stores, and the Gulf. It was spotless, and we enjoyed staying in such a clean place. The kitchen was very well-stocked with pots, pans, etc. for those who enjoy staying in to eat. We enjoyed the hot tub and screened-in porch too. Jonathan was an extremely helpful and responsive host. We could not have been more pleased.

Exactly as advertised, great spot.

  • 5 of 5

Very rustic appearance on the outside but inside is a perfect bungalow. We had 5 guys coming down for a golf trip and Jon only had 4 beds at the time of booking. He took the time and money to add a 5th bed, and then of course our 5th guy broke his arm 3 days before the trip and we ended up with only 4. Jacuzzi tub in screen house saved my trip as my back flared up. Tub was nice and clean and being a swimming pool owner I do get worried about hot tubs turning into "human bacteria frappes" if water is not maintained and balanced - this was as far away from that as possible. pool water was nice and clear and clean. It is a bit tricky to find but after finding it's easy. Jonathan was very communicative, responsive and a pleasure to deal with. I'd recommend to anyone to stay here. Access to highways is a five minute ride, downtown Tampa about 20 minute ride.

Well situated, quiet, and close to local amenities. An exterior, screened-in, hot tub living space.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in this cool and welcoming home. We also greatly appreciated the thoughtful attention of our host, Jonathan.

A lively group of four adults and two babies, we comfortably staged our Florida adventure from the safety of this well appointed bungalow. Spacious, clean and tastefully decorated, there were ample towels and comfortable linens. The washer/dryer unit in the garage was key, and the hot tub became our evening gathering place where we laughed over the events of the day. In addition, our granddaughter was thrilled by the playground next door. :D We highly recommend this vacation property and would stay here again.
