This is a large room with it's own bathroom, closet, flat screen TV with cable, a comfy queen size bed and all the comforts of home, including parking. You can ride your bike to USF - only 1.5 mile - and our street is very quiet and peaceful. Wifi complementary!

The space

The 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! :)

Alex and Alayne are charming, very generous hosts; the room is comfortable, spacious and quiet; and the dogs are really cute. For those commuting to the USF campus, there's even a bus stop right near the house. Overall highly recommended.

As a returning guest, I personally recommend this place. The owners made me feel at home and its location offers many close by amenities. :)

The hosts made me feel at home from day one. I arrived much later than scheduled and they kindly flexed their schedule to reflect that. The place is as described, roomy, clean and has quality facilities. The road is quiet, but is still very close to local businesses. Will book again :)

This was a very comfortable home away from home when I really needed it. Nothing bad to say. Good communication. Nice street with trees. Loving dogs to greet you at door.

Alex and Alayne were fabulous! We really enjoyed our time in their home. The room is very spacious and the bathroom is terrific! The huge shower is amazing! Plus, tons of conveniences in your room. Overall, our first experience with Air BNB was really terrific.

Alex and Alayne were great hosts. The room was comfortable and clean. I loved the aroma of fresh coffee brewing each morning. They were very helpful regarding things to do in the area. Their neighborhood was nice and quiet. It was very convenient for us as we were attending a graduation at USF. I would highly recommend their place to others.
