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. Ample 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 50 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 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

We are located very centrally to every main attraction, shopping, entertainment, convention center and sports facilities in Tampa. Roughly a 3 mile radius to everything. We are also only 8 miles to Tampa International Airport.

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.

The home is close to everything you want to do yet in a nice quiet area. One of my favorite rental experiences. Communication was clear and thorough. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting the Tampa area.

The loft is perfect. It's peaceful with no distractions. The pond is next door so if you need to take a walk and enjoy the scenery it's there. Randy was a perfect host. Always checked on me to make sure I was good. All in all, I enjoyed my week.

Really unique place. Huge space, with high ceilings and beautiful modern finishings. Randy is a wonderful host, and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we could possibly need and then some. Highly recommended.

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
