About Lauren T

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

Why Lauren T chose Tampa

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.

What makes this house unique

Walk to everything in Ybor or hop on the trolley to Channelside and Downtown Tampa!

Great alternative to all the rowdy behavior in hotels

  • 4 of 5

Location is very close to everything....Ybor walking; streetcar down to Channelside and Amalie Arena. The Loft has a terrific front patio....lots of room for people watching! I would return, but this is not a luxury rental; nice, but not luxury. I have been using VRBO for 15 years, and I think the "headline" should be changed to good, nice, comfortable....but not luxury. Lauren, we really had a great time. Would have been better if our team had won the Final Four. Thanks for everything!!

Wedding

  • 2 of 5

This place was not up to the ratings I saw before booking. The noise from the local bars & people in the street kept everyone awake most of the night. The parking is shared with the law firm below & since the spaces are not designated parking for more than two cars was impossible. Also, on one occasion one of the law firm's client blocked our car so we couldn't get out & then left to have lunch with one of the attorneys. When we arrived there were plumbers working on a leak that was causing the water from one of the bathrooms to leak into the law office below. On our last morning there was apparently more leaking so the people in the office turned off the water without telling us so we had no water. Lastly, the apartment was not very clean. The floors were especially dirty as were the rugs in the bathrooms. Although the location was great for catching the trolley and convenient for getting us to & from the wedding, I don't think it was worth the price or the lack of sleep due to the noise.

Lightning game with the guys

  • 4 of 5

This is a large Loft apartment that is central to good food and Bars and a short tram ride to the Arena

The patio above the street was huge and gave a space to relax while others played pool or watched TV

Tampa Bay Brew pub only a couple hundred yards away and the Columbia Restaurant is outstanding

Spacious, loaded condo in the heart of Ybor City is a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this condo, which is perfect for a large family: spacious great room with a pool table, TV, wifi, blue tooth for playlists, surround sound. 4 bedrooms with extra sleeping spaces, a fully-loaded, spacious kitchen, and easy access to all the fun in Ybor, as well as downtown and a quick jump onto 275 takes you straight to the Gulf beaches. Two full bathrooms are inside two of the bedrooms, so no hallway access means great for a family but adult couples will have to be comfortable with traipsing through others' bedrooms to get to the bathroom.

Nice place but....

  • 4 of 5

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.

Great location for a family get together.

  • 4 of 5

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

Issues

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
