We call it the "Cave". It is a 950 sq. ft. open loft in the trees for up to 4 people with park/river view, centrally located to downtown and sports venues, shopping, beaches, business and medical centers. It is quiet and private. Also it is within walking distance to several restaurants, shops, grocery store, microbreweries, beauty salon, barbershop, pizza, and more on the way. On-site parking with lighting allows for late arrival.

The space

You will be staying in a large open loft space designed for musical concerts. The loft has views to the adjacent oak trees giving it a tree house effect. The wood ceilings are vaulted giving it almost a chapel atmosphere. There is abundant natural light on all sides.

An 18' long counter space with granite counter tops, double bowl sink, small microwave, under-counter refrigerator, toaster and Keurig, coffee maker serves as an informal serving area.

A seating area for work or food has two antique church pews facing a large table that has additional chair seating for flexibility of use.

The double couch seating area with 40" flat screen TV becomes two very comfortable queen beds. Wireless internet access with 100 Mbps speeds allow ease of entertainment and/or business. Fios Cable TV provides a large variety of movies/TV shows/sports, HBO, Showtime, etc. A Yamaha baby grand piano sits at the main entrance and is available for entertainment or practice on request.

All lighting is dimmable LEDs with extra colored spotlighting for photography and the Heating/Air Conditioning is extremely quiet with remote control for the temperature.

The industrial styling extends to the Bathroom with granite walls and floor with a large shower with two separate water controls.

Guest access

You will be staying in a totally separate building from the hosts but they are accessible by a short walk across the sky bridge deck to the main house. The large front deck has seating for conversations and nature watching. Automobile access is available adjacent to the structure and there are two separate stairs for accessibility to the upstairs loft. The interior stairs lead down to the side entry door and is open to the loft at the top. This is not recommended for small children unless directly supervised by parents. We have an expandable gate that can be set to deter small children from venturing down the inside stairway if needed. Interior stairs are very gentle with only 6" risers and wide 12" steps.

Interaction with guests

This space will be totally private for your use while staying with us. Let us know if you need help with anything feel free to ask, whether it is for toiletries that you may have forgotten or anything about the local area attractions, sports venues, or advice on the Tampa business districts.

Your access is through a key pad number given to you upon check-in. We must be present to check you in so that we can show you the lighting, HVAC controls and answer any questions. We are available most any time, even late nights as long as you let us know beforehand.

Other things to note

Randy was a perfect host, so kind and helpful throughout the entire stay, super quick with all communication and even waited up late so that I could check in. The space is amazing and truly unique, I loved the high ceilings and all the wood and windows which leave you feeling as if you're in a gigantic treehouse. Very quiet upscale neighborhood across the street from a park and the river. Would absolutely stay here again!!

Randy is awesome. The loft is one of a kind. I enjoyed my stay and the location. I can honestly say that this is my best stay I've had in many stays. I will use this location the next time I come home to visit family and do Photo shoots. Thanks again Randy.

Randy’s man cave is a unique, comfortable and great designed place! You feel private and close the nature. The place is also very close to Downtown, great local bars and breweries. Randy is a very polite and funny host. We enjoyed our stay there and would highly recommend this airbnb in Tampa!

Great location, great space and great host. ..The place was amazing! From the moment you pull up until you walk into the door, you'll love it. Then it only gets better from there. The inside looks better than the pictures. The home provides everything you will need for a quick or extended stay. Randy is very attentive and welcoming! If you're on the fence about this place... take my word, you'll love it!

Randy is the best host for this great retreat in Tampa. Overwhelmed by the space of his beautifully self-built loft (Randy is an architect), playing the baby-grand piano is a real treat!! We will definitely come again if we're in the area!

Beautiful accommodation space with great host, whom we feel would do anything for us. We had a fab time around Tampa: Busch Gardens - insanely humid, but fantastic day out; Honeymoon Island was a gorgeous, quiet beach. Would definitely rebook with Randy if we were back that way.

I am an architect with 36 years experience in various firms and have been in the government side of the practice for the last 21 years. Recently retiring from public service sector, I have returned to private practice. Now President of ERS+Architecture, a local Architecture firm in Tampa, FL, I am a licensed Architect in Mississippi and Florida

Originally from Mississippi, Graduate of Mississippi State University
I have called Tampa my home since 1983. I Enjoy sailing and sportscars but especially music. My girlfriend and I host house concerts at her or my home for singer songwriters. It is a lot of fun and we meet a lot of great talented artists and experience some great original music. Together we have hosted 100 concerts over ten years with the 11th season starting in November 2016. Since the artists usually stay with us for the concert it seems natural to use the concert loft space for an AirBnB. The concerts are spread out during the year usually at least a month apart giving several opportunites for hosting you and your family. The decor is more concert space than bedroom but that is what helps makes it unique. We hope you enjoy the acoustics and even the piano for some entertainment. - Randy
