About Ken

Having traveled moderately in my career, I wanted to create a unique lodging experience for guests, with those things typically absent in my hotel stays, including:

Unquestionably freshly laundered linens and comforters; adequate electronic connectivity; reliable high-speed internet; a hamper and liner for collecting and transporting worn laundry; laundered house robes, a loaner umbrella; and a spa-grade bathroom area.

While our rates may be slightly higher than other properties, it comes with a high degree of privacy, comfort and cleanliness.

About Us:

We (Dave and Ken) migrated from the Chicago and New Haven areas 17 years ago and moved to Tampa. Ken served as Director for Information Technology for a large non-profit, and Dave, first as a techie, turned mortgage underwriter.

Settling first in the Tampa's Carrollwood suburb we opted to return to the city's core three years ago where we took on the task of rehabbing our investment property of ten years into a permanent home. We love the location and urban feel of living just north of downtown.

Ken purchased this house in 2003

Why Ken chose Tampa Heights

A quaint Tampa Heights neighborhood undergoing significant gentrification in recent years; where neighbors know one another and large oak trees canopy much of the area. A convenience store is located across the street for sundries and snacks. Tampa's weather and nearby attractions make it a great destination for business travel or a getaway weekend.

As the oldest neighborhood in Tampa Heights, it is culturally diverse, inhabited by mostly working class families, and includes some older homes in need of repair. If you like eclectic, urban neighborhoods, with lots of ethnic restaurants and conveniences, this is a great place to stay. The owners have lived here for 15 years, know their neighbors, and have never had any security or safety issues.

The home, built in 1923, was scheduled for demolition in 2003. We purchased it in early 2004, completed improvements, and it served as a rental property until 2012. Construction for the new space began in 2013 when we added the guest wing and completed other upgrades.

Come enjoy our great weather and wicked awesome hospitality!

We are LGBTQ affirming property hosts.

Stunning!!

The stay at the suite was amazing. Very well clean, organized and professional setup. Ken was always making sure that I was comfortable. I’m very thankful of everything. This is a “must stay” suite.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The beautifully refurbished 1920's home is well position between Downtown and the northern part of the city. Close enough via Uber to new and interesting restaurants and well known venues. The VRBO hosts are attentive to your needs yet respectful to your privacy. They are a wealth of information and willing to help with suggestions based on your mood and budget. The comfy room and en suite bathroom is a perfect place to stay. Via the back patio, there is a separate entrance with a digital security lock on the door to allow you to come and go as you please. If we are ever back in Tampa, we will gladly stay again!

Prefect for Us

  • 5 of 5

Ken and Dave were wonderful hosts, providing all the information needed. The room was perfect and the location was also good for us. We felt safe and comfortable, shower was great and everything was clean and neat. The back deck was great for winding down after a long day at our trade show. We will be coming back on our next trip to Tampa.
