Then there are the DISCLAIMERS (always disclaimers).... DISCLAIMER I.

DISCLAIMER II - from time to time maintenance and repairs are required, so there may be an occasion when the pool or hot tub may not be available. That is beyond our control, and we ask in advance for you forgiveness. Thanks, Jeff & George Guest AccessGuests have access to all the common areas, such as kitchen, den, living room, dining room, pool, hot tub, sun decks and multiple courtyards. Guests may also use the laundry facility if needed. Interaction with GuestsYou choose whether you want to be reclusive and spend most of your time in your own private suite, or socialize in the kitchen, common areas with other guests and us. You are always invited to join us in the kitchen when we are cooking to chat and "USUALLY" enjoy a glass of wine or two. The NeighborhoodSeminole Heights is a historic district, so the area is very safe, with beautiful homes AND, NO CHAIN RESTAURANTS. All the fabulous restaurants in the area are unique and a nice blend from organic vegetarian to Italian, to sports bar to pizzeria. Getting AroundALTHOUGH NOT REQUIRED, renting a car is the best option as Tampa Bay is very spread out and mass transit is limited to bus.
However if you are attending a convention downtown, the mass transit to the convention center is easy, inexpensive and direct, but does require a transfer at the Marion Street Station.
WALKING is safe and easy in the neighborhood and you will find everything from grocery store to restaurants, cafes, bars, shops and pharmacy.

PLEASE NOTE - We provide towels, sheets, pillows and blankets and other luxuries, but guests must provide their own personal hygiene products such as soap, shampoo and lotions.
Housekeeping will provide fresh linen and towels to guest staying longer than 6 nights.
