I love the concept of AIrbnb and it can be a great way to see Tampa Bay. Other options are Wimdu.com, Roomerama etc. We’ve hosted international students and Moffitt cancer patients before in own house, and traveled in many countries where B&B signs hang at random from houses and farms. This idea works.
Some years ago, I did a project with USF doctoral students. What do visitors to Tampa Bay want? The projects were fascinating, and added many new insights to my own soft landing work.
At the moment, we are so busy with work that we have blocked off all dates on https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/387866, etc. Mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to stay with us, and I’ll see if it is a good time. We make a special effort to welcome international visitors, visitors to the universities or Moffitt Cancer Center, or to people doing business in Tampa Bay.
Www.Airbnb.com is great because you:
- Choose the price range you want.
- Get help and support from people who know the area really well.
- Check references from people who have stayed at the accommodation sites.
- Ensure that you have 24 hour backup service from a professional worldwide organization.
- Ensure safety for your payment, and have insurance etc.
- Use the site to book accommodation all over the world.
