South Tampa Sweet Retreat
With so much to explore in Tampa Bay, there’s no better location to call home than South Tampa Sweet Retreat. Located in a walkable neighborhood, this charming home is a quiet haven among the many happenings in the Tampa Bay area. Large trees shade the home and give it an Old Florida feel, while Downtown Tampa is just 15 minutes away. Historic Hyde Park, known as a popular social scene with shopping and fine dining is 10 minutes away, and just across the bridge, St. Petersburg is within 20 minutes.
The home’s interior blends modern updates with touches of classic design, starting in the cozy seating area with sofa sleeper that welcomes you inside. Just beyond, the spacious kitchen is anchored by a large island with casual bar seating for 2. Off the kitchen, a small breakfast nook is nestled in the front corner of the home with colorful art and seating for 4. When you aren’t exploring the many nearby restaurants, make use of the home’s stainless steel appliances and cookware for convenient meals in the comfort of your own space. A formal dining table with seating for 8 guests faces wall-to-wall windows looking out over the large backyard.
From the home’s dining space, exit onto the back patio furnished with Adirondack chairs. Brick pavers lead to the wooden swing hanging from the backyard’s Grandfather oak tree. Fairy lights illuminate the surrounding branches, creating a beautiful backdrop as the Florida sun sets.
Back inside, the living room provides a space to unwind and enjoy leisure time indoors. Comfortable seating surrounds a smart tv where you can stream your favorite shows or host movie nights.
This home sleeps up to 8 guests between 3 private bedrooms and a sleeper sofa in the living area.
