The SpaceWrens Nest, in Old Seminole Heights, you have half a cozy, secluded house in artsy Seminole Heights, Tampa. The Wren's Nest, a lovely home in tree-lined Old Seminole Heights near the Hillsborough River, can be your home for days or weeks. Your own private, cozy bedroom with queen size bed, private bath, living room and kitchen amenities under a southern canopy of oaks and palms. All amenities, cable TV in your room, WiFi, overhead fan, private bath, an office across from the private bedroom with a desktop computer, printer and scanner with an eclectic library. The outside patio is beautifully landscaped with native Florida plants and trees. The garden was created in 1956, providing a Palm and Oak shaded sanctuary in a natural, serene and private setting. A block away is the Hillsborough River, great for manatee and alligator sightings. The neighborhood is perfect for walks and jogging along tree lined Old Seminole Heights streets. Awaken in a natural setting to abundant bird life, the wrens greeting one another, along with the Cardinals, Thrashers, Mockingbirds, Blue Jays and occasional hawk. Minutes away from the Wren's Nest are a cornucopia of restaurants, cocktail lounges and bars, a micro brewery, recording studio, grocery stores, coffee shops, vintage clothing/toy shops, and a BBQ, "Smoky Oaks" is within walking distance, scenting the neighborhood with the aroma of smokin' ribs, chicken and brisket. The Mermaid Tavern is also within walking distance with well over 100 craft beers and "the best veggie burger" three of our guests have ever had in their lives! Our neighborhood, Seminole Heights has just been written up in the Tampa Bay Times, in an article, "Greatest Heights" as the best neighborhood for many trendy restaurants, ranging from eclectic, BBQ, home style cooking, breweries and craft beer taverns to every choice a dedicated foody could desire! Downtown Tampa and the convention center, history center, the STRAZ Performing Arts Center, Tampa Museum of Art, Glazer Childrens Museum, and many restaurants of every ethnicity are all ten minutes away. Busch Gardens Amusement Park and Lowry Park Zoo are fifteen minutes away. If you'd like to try your luck at a casino, Seminole Hard Rock Casino is fifteen minutes away. St. Petersburg and Clearwater beaches are 35 minutes away. Tarpon Springs with its sponge docks and great authentic Greek food is 45 minutes away. The Lightening Hockey Team, the Yankee's Spring Training, Legends Field, The Bucs stadium, all are within fifteen minutes of the Wren's Nest. The Rays Tropicana Field is 45 minutes away. Not to be missed is the night life and restaurants in historical Ybor City, the birthplace for the cigar industry in the late 1800's, only ten minutes from the Wren's Nest. From downtown Tampa, take a trolley to visit Channelside, or to hang out in Ybor City, where you can go on a Mafia tour or a ghost graveyard tour, after cocktails, cigars and dinner with many fine restaurants, including the famous and historical 1905 Columbia, to choose from. Music lovers relish Ybor city with it's exciting nightlife. For more far flung adventures, Disney and Orlando are just an hour and fifteen minutes away. Nestled under the oaks of Old Seminole Heights you can relax in our comfortable home or be on a major highway within five minutes or grab local transportation, at the HART bus line stop is on our corner. You'll find a complete guide book with maps, coupons and a cornucopia of information to help you enjoy your stay with us. Escape to the Wren's Nest for a delightful visit exploring all that makes the Tampa Bay area great! Guest AccessThe guest bedroom with queen size bed, guest bathroom, living room, kitchen and office/library, deck and patio area. The guest area is on one side of our home, with the kitchen separating our living area and that of our guests. The pullout couch in the living room can sleep two more, at a cost of $10 per additional person per night. Interaction with GuestsWe provide as much or as little interaction as our guests would like to make their stay with us the most enjoyable possible. We are happy to provide lots of information on the best Tampa has to offer. The NeighborhoodWe are located in Seminole Heights, the home of the new foody/wine/beer proliferation of independent eating and drinking spots, known as "The Heights". Our area has become" the IT spot in Tampa with dozens of existing restaurants, bars and food businesses crowded along N. Florida and N.Nebraska avenues, and more are poised to debut this spring." Quoted from Tampa Bay Times article, "Greater Heights", March 11, 2015. To see article in full go to (URL HIDDEN) We are ten minutes from downtown Tampa, 30 minutes to local beaches and minutes from many local restaurants and attractions. Our neighborhood is a beautifully tree lined oasis in Tampa, one block from the Hillsborough River. There are three small parks in our immediate neighborhood along the river, many places to walk and job, and within one mile excellent local restaurants and shops. Getting Around The Wren's Nest is located in Old Seminole Heights.We are very centrally located to hwy 275 and rt. 4, within five minutes of fast access to both. Public transportation: HART busline is available for transportation with a bus stop on the corner of our street of 17th and Sligh Avenue. Bus #9 or #41 takes visitors to downtown Tampa within 25-30 minutes. By car, downtown Tampa is 10 minutes away from our airbnb. There are also many taxi services and if our schedule permits we provide rides to or from the airport for a fee. Additionally, Lyft and Uber began operating in Tampa, which is an inexpensive taxi-like service. There is also a bike rental service available in downtown Tampa. We help to provide transportation information to all guests. Other Things to NoteMy husband is an artist and I am a writer. Our home and patio and very private back yard is an oasis of peace away from busy Tampa, yet we are minutes away from the major thoroughfare of highway 275, yet far enough away that highway noise is never heard. We love people, the arts, and I love to cook, bake bread and share recipes. Our home is an eclectic combination of art, antiques, books, comfort and is a peaceful getaway close to beaches, restaurants, night life, music, the Yankee's Spring training Stadium, Legends Field, as well as other spring training facilities. The Lightning Hockey Team, museums, art galleries, Ybor City are all assets that Tampa has to offer. We are also about an hour from Orlando's Disney, Universal and about 30 minutes from the Hard Rock Casino. Whatever you're looking for, be it a peaceful getaway or a fun time of entertainment and shopping, it's all here!

The SpaceThe house was completely remodeled in 1997 and I continue to remodel other parts. Very unique look and the amount of windows will make you feel like you are outside. *** Free Wi-Fi in the house. Place your phone on Wi-Fi and FORGET about using any data! 4G connection speeds. *** Guest AccessPlease respect my personal belongings, but you can help yourself to browse through my library located in the office, use my desk to sit down and write your novel, and have coffee while you enjoy the weather outside. I have a Krups Coffee machine, and I will leave a few 'cups' for you to have worry-free coffee in the morning. You will want to be outside or sitting by the large windows not worrying about making the coffee! :-) Interaction with GuestsI will be there if you need me, otherwise I will be out of your way. If you need information, etc. you can call me, text me... The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is very safe but just as an added measure, the house is completely secured! There is a modern, touch-screen security system. The house notifies you each time a door is open and if help is needed, they will dispatch the police. Fire alarm, carmon monoxide detectors, glass break-in, intrusion alert. Trust me, you will feel overprotected. You don't have to enable it, it is up to you. The neighborhood is comprised of older couples, couples with kids - basically, local families and professors from University of South Florida; right across the street. Getting AroundYou will be between 75 and 275, Tampa's major highways. As for food, there are MANY restaurants nearby - many of them walking distance from the house. Other Things to NoteI currently live in the house, so my calendar is "open" but please contact me directly as it means that I need to plan ahead to stay at my other location while not here.

The SpaceThe space is set up to be totally private, there is a separate side entrance, the picture on the website shows the slate path I recently installed to enable you to enjoy total anonymity. I don't get to meet a lot of my guests as they prefer their privacy and they leave their accommodations so clean I hardly know they're here. Most of my guests like to come and go as they please and I'm all for that. Your in room fridge is stocked with cheese, veggies, crackers, coffee, tea and a complimentary bottle of wine to enjoy in the garden. PLEASE ADHERE to the ck in/out times listed under the pics. I do need time between guests to make your space totally yours and I strive for the space to look as if you're the first guests to inhabit it. I am child friendly but the house is not (too much glass) and only accommodates two adults and pet or sometimes pets. The outside garden is the perfect place to relax with squirrels and birds for company, they do their part to make this space as close to perfect as possible. I leave the keys out front under the mat after ck in time which is 3:00 PM. or anytime you may wish to check in after 3:00PM. Also kindly remember ck out time is 11:00 AM . Please don't ask for an early ck in time or to leave your luggage or car.(Usually the current guest is using the parking space) I feel bad saying no, but I have to as almost 90% of my guests used to ask and I used to say yes and it was ALWAYS a problem. Guest AccessThere is a washer and dryer, also a large park across the street for walking a dog if you travel with your pet. The park has two tennis courts, a lake, Little League Baseball games, and an oval track for running laps and is about 100 yards from your front door. There is also a community pool which is seldom used but nicely maintained about 400' from your door. A vegetable market about a 1 1/2 blks, I walk there often, they have the best produce. A family owned restaurant "Gino's" is just around the corner from the mkt. Moderate price though only open in the evening. Iavaroni's the 2nd best steak restaurant in Tampa is about a mile from here, easily walkable. Berns the #1 restaurant is in S. Tampa a 20 minute drive. Interaction with GuestsYou may use this vacation spot in total privacy, it's set up to be self contained, however you may see me occasionally, it's up to you how much socializing you want. I'm always available for any questions or problems that may occur. My home and cell #'s are posted in your suite. The NeighborhoodWe are 2 minutes from Dale Mabry, one of Tampa's main streets. Many restaurants and stores line this avenue and we are minutes away from the airport and International Mall, one of Florida"s high end malls. Wonderful shopping and restaurants. 5 minutes from Busch Gardens, Lowrey Park Zoo, U.S.F. and the Interstate to take you to other Florida attractions. 15 minutes to downtown, Ybor City and Harbor Island. 3 miles from football stadium. "Go Bucs" Getting AroundThere is a bus stop at the corner of Busch and Armenia. I really wouldn't recommend staying here without a car though I have had a few guests who used "Uber" from the airport and the bus during their stay. Other Things to NoteWe have CATS and I wouldn't recommend anyone with allergies booking this. The CATS don't come in your room, but may wonder through the garden though they are skittish around people and probably won't be in the garden during your visit. I am obsessively clean, feed them upstairs, their litter box is also located upstairs behind closed doors in a bathroom with an air ventilator and maniacally maintained.

The SpaceThe space is super large with the suite measuring 13' X 18 and it has its own bathroom and queen size bed, so it's private and very quiet. Our bedroom is at the other end of the hall and there is a main bathroom next to our room. The kitchen, living room and front room are at the other end of the house. Alayne travels with two dogs (Gio and Mollie) so they are not always here. They are NEVER allowed in bedrooms and should not even attempt to enter your suite. Sometimes they bark at the garbage man. They are very conscientious guards of the A&A Airbnb; however, if they annoy you, let us know. We have a kitchen with a new stove and washer/dryer in the garage. Generally Alex is available to give information about the area, attractions, beaches, hiking, etc. We like to give tours of Ybor and downtown, especially the University of Tampa campus (Henry B Plant Hotel). We will be around most of the time but we often have commitments with friends. This neighborhood is inhabited by college professors, teachers and next door is a singer/songwriter. It is a very quiet area and pretty chill. We have a public golf course within walking distance. It's actually a good place to bike. We often walk to the CVS or the Walgreens because we like to walk. It's about 1/2 mile. You have access to the whole house, including kitchen, front room,lanai in backyard, living room (with internet streaming TV, Blu-ray DVD and Sonos speaker), kitchen and washer/dryer (garage). There is free parking. We will respect your wishes on interaction but normally feel free to ask questions or seek clarifications. We want you to have FUN. This part of Temple Terrace is very natural, with many old oak trees that line the streets and provide much-needed shade. We are close to the Temple Terrace golf course and the area is super walkable. We often walk the dogs to get groceries or the CVS. Nearby is a cool "french brunch" place, a funky coffeeshop, sushi, italian and great middle eastern food. Our public transportation is ok, there is a local bus stop 1 block from the house. Tampa is working - very slowly - on this issue and we believe we will see progress in the near future. Meanwhile, we recommend you rent a car,Uber, bike, run-walk or even skate to get around easier. We are working on a loaner bike but not there yet. This house has an amazing vibe to it. I wish I could claim I did something that merits this but actually it's one of the reasons we bought it in the first place. Enjoy the house- it really feels like home. You'll see. Don't forget this is a dog-friendly house and the dogs are hosts too! :) Guest AccessThe whole place! DOGS! Interaction with GuestsWe will respect your wishes on interaction but normally feel free to ask questions or seek clarifications. We want you to have FUN. The NeighborhoodThis is a great neighborhood for walking, jogging and playing golf. The Temple Terrace Golf and Country Club is within walking distance.
