We love having this vacation rental property. We completely renovated the property in 2008, updating the kitchen, bathrooms and much more while still keeping the original charm of the building. We moved out of the property into the 'burbs' with our first child but are glad we were able to keep it so other guests can come stay and enjoy the city of Ybor!
Lauren T purchased this house in 2007
Location, location, location! You will gasp when you walk in the door and see this hidden gem in the heart of Centro Ybor City. The 11 foot ceilings and skylights in the living room make it that much more fabulous then I've been able to capture in the pictures here.
Walk to everything in Ybor or hop on the trolley to Channelside and Downtown Tampa!
We rented this place for a long weekend, it was a great flat; comfy beds, decent kitchen, pool table, large couch and nice front porch for hanging out. What no one mentioned is how LOUD it is at night, the building is adjacent to a night club that was so loud at night it made the windows rattle. If you sleep like you are dead probably not an issue but if you are a light sleeper it will drive you insane. There are two bathrooms both are ensuites, great if you are sleeping in that room, awkward if you have to walk through someone elses bedroom at night. The area around the condo is filled with bars, tattoo parlors and hand rolled cigars other than that NOTHING! It is a party area! If you have any issues with stairs or have any luggage the flight of stairs is basically a fire escape and steep. This is the place for a party, just be careful leaving, steep stairs and dark.
I recently spent 3 nights at this property. Some really cool aspects of the property:
1. Great Parking
2. Great porch area
3. Nice Kitchen
4. Great Location
1. Bathrooms- This would not be an issue if staying with all family but there is no 1/2 bathroom in the common area so if you want to use the bathroom you have to go through a bedroom. I knew about this before but it was an issue for us.
Overall nice experience and cool place
Four of us stayed in the loft for the Gasparilla Distance Classic weekend. We had a great weekend!
The loft is cozy and well appointed, and was great for us to spend our time lounging around laughing and drinking after running all the miles! Comfortable beds, everything we could ask for in the kitchen, and plenty of towels. Great location and ample parking too!
The only two things I would mention about the loft... First, as others have mentioned, there is a set of very steep stairs for entry, which might make this a difficult rental for someone who has a hard time with stairs. Second, the area can be noisy at night and you can definitely hear trains as they go by. The loft, which is obviously quite old, does not have soundproofed windows. If you are a light sleeper, this might be a problem.
Other than that, we had a great time and really enjoyed ourselves!! Thanks, Lauren!!
You will not be disappointed, great location and a beautiful home. I planned a dinner for my 20th birthday and there was room for everything and everyone. Everything is within walking distance if you aren't familiar with the area and there is a welcome book full of instructions and great places to go out during your stay. Wish there was another bathroom because you have to walk through another bedroom to use it but we still enjoyed our stay
Really enjoyed our stay. I planned a 50th birthday party and it was great. I needed an open roomy place to accomodate several people. This was the perfect place. Everyone that walked in the door was impressed with the location and the accommodations. I was a little hesitate at first being in Ybor for Halloween, but it was a blast. We walked the streets and people watched. It was very interesting and would do it again. I could just go on and on. Book it, you will not be disappointed.
The loft was great . The location for our stay for our son's wedding and reception was perfect. I didn't think about it at the time of booking , but the stairs were the only drawback to 50 and 60 year olds carrying anything. My oversight. We would recommend some lighting in the back by the stairs.
