Overview

About the property

Located In Tampa's Coolest And Most Central Neighborhood, Completely Renovated!

Two houses on one property, a 1928 Craftsman Bungalow (2 beds 2 baths) with a detached 1 bedroom 1 bathroom cottage with full kitchen, professionally designed and furnished, luxury with old world charm awaits. Big front porch for sipping coffee or tea and reading the news paper but the outdoor space is all about the back garden. Built in furniture, outdoor kitchen, fire pit, tropical landscaping. Tall ceilings throughout, Apple TV, Washer/Dryer, huge master bathroom overlooking lush tropical backyard space. Comfort is King in this historical home! Each building is completely detached and there are no shared walls or shared amenities.

NO expense was spared while furnishing the home with unique and brand new mid century style pieces, the highest quality linens and towels made with real Egyptian cottons, original art pieces, an extremely functional and welcoming kitchen with all the tools you would need to be a home chef, 2 generous bathrooms and two FULL size beds in the 2nd bedroom for kids or group travelers. The mattresses are brand new and considered some of the best reviewed in the world. Apple TV with Netflix and high speed WiFi will allow you to entertain yourself or work from home.

Seminole Heights is Tampa's greatest up and coming neighborhood, and is exciting the "foodie" scene on a national stage, with recent mentions in Travel and Leisure, Money Magazine and beyond. It's an extremely exciting place to be for foodies, craft beer enthusiasts and artists, as well as families with a taste for the extraordinary! Walk to Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo, America's #1 rated Zoo for kids. Epps park and the Hillsborough River are also a short walk, and eateries, cafes, bakeries, vintage shops and more are all a short walk away.

Between myself and my manager Kim, we will strive to be sure you are completely comfortable and happy, that you have everything you need and more, and will be available for you should you have any questions or concerns.

About Jeff Curtis

I'm an avid traveler, real estate broker, musician and family man. I enjoy cooking and food culture, the arts, my Tampa sports teams, fishing, golfing and living the good life with my beautiful better half.

I was born and raised in Tampa, Fl, and lived the first 30 years of my life there. I moved to Venice Beach in Los Angeles, CA, in 2012. I frequently visit home, and this property is the home I lived in for the last 8 years of my Tampa residency. There's a fine chance I will move into this home once again, so now's your chance to visit before it's too late !! :)

I believe that traveling is more than just a destination. It's a journey, it's a way to meet new and interesting people and to see the world through other's eyes. Comfort and knowledge are equally as important! Staying in my home will hopefully allow you to see my beloved city somewhat through my eyes. I welcome dialogue and would absolutely love to make suggestions and recommendations as wanted. I want everyone to enjoy thoroughly their time in my home, and in my home city, Tampa Bay, Florida.

Jeff Curtis purchased this house in 2004

Why Jeff Curtis chose Old Seminole Heights

This property is "the one" for many reasons! The history on Tampa is much more rich than one may think. This 1928 Craftsman Bungalow plus matching cottage, if only walls could speak! Many of the original charms still exist, including the original 1928 pine floors, which have been meticulously restored to their natural beauty. Archways, tall ceilings and crown moldings, high baseboards will make you feel like you've taken a trip back into time, while absolutely NO expense was spared while furnishing the home with unique mid century pieces, the highest quality linens and towels made with real Egyptian cottons, original art pieces, an extremely functional and welcoming kitchen with all the tools you would need to be a home chef, 2 generous bathrooms and two FULL size beds in the 2nd bedroom for kids or group travelers. The mattresses are brand new and considered some of the best reviewed in the world. Apple TV with Netflix and high speed WiFi will allow you to entertain yourself or work from home.

As previously mentioned, Seminole Heights is definitely Tampa's greatest up and coming neighborhood, and is exciting the foodie scene on a national stage, with recent mentions in Travel and Leisure, Money Magazine and beyond. It's an extremely exciting place to be for foodies, craft beer enthusiasts and artists, as well as families with a taste for the extraordinary!

Between myself and Kim (my helper), we will strive to be sure you are completely comfortable and happy, that you have everything you need and more, and will be available for you should you have any questions or concerns.

What makes this house unique

One unique benefit is the central location. Literally just a 10-15 minute drive from :

USF (Univesity of South Florida)

Busch Gardens

Ybor City

Tampa Convention Center

Tampa Museum of Art

Tampa International Airport

Clearwater Beach

St. Pete Beach

Moffitt Cancer Center

More...

And just over the bridge are world renowned beaches Clearwater, St. Pete, Fort DeSoto, John's Pass, Reddington, and more.

Maybe you'll be lucky enough to visit during one of the communities "Porch Parties" and host and visit front porches of fellow bungalow dwellers, or wander down to peaceful Epps Park, a short walk from the house to the Hillsborough River.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great indoors and out. The inside was clean and furnished well. The outdoors was amazing, offering an amazing backyard the nice front porch to sit on. And the location was amazing. Offered a lot of shops and diners you can simply walk to.

Comfortable, clean, and great location

  • 5 of 5

The main house was everything we expected, house just as described. Well equipped kitchen and bathrooms with quiet neighborhood but close to great restaurants and close to I-275 for easy access to Downtown and attractions. Jeff is a great host and was very responsive to questions/concerns. Cottage slightly chilly but blame that on coldest weather of the winter for Tampa. Great layout for privacy in cottage for those with sleep habit different from others. Would definitely consider repeat visit when back in Tampa.

We enjoyed our stay at the cottage. We were in town for our son’s graduation from USF and the house was perfect for our celebration weekend.

House full of charm in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the Hiawatha house. The three bedroom home with three bathrooms was very convenient for our group and we really enjoyed the outdoor setup in the back. Quite neighborhood with great local spots within walking distance. Will definitely return.

Lovely home with tons of character

  • 5 of 5

The Hiawatha House was perfect for our family while we were in Tampa for a surgical procedure at Moffitt. The home is lovely and the cottage was a fantastic bonus. Jeff was extremely easy to communicate with and made sure we had everything we needed. The location was very convenient to restaurants and shopping and less than 15 minutes to Moffitt during non-peak hours.
