As you sit on the front porch of Erehwon Retreat, you’re transported to years gone by, when life was simpler and time moved slower. Close your eyes as you sit on the expansive wrap-around porch with eaves and you can almost hear the whir of the motor of a Model T rambling down an unpaved road or the neighbor stopping by for a chat. In the 1920s, the bungalow was in its heyday and our home harkens back to those glory days.

OUR RETREAT

From the minute you walk in the front door, you’ll notice each room has been lovingly restored, with touches from the arts and crafts era like arches, columns, twelve foot ceilings and original waterfall lights. The built-in bookshelves, next to the massive fireplace, contain all the Harvard Classics and the complete works of Shakespeare for your reading pleasure.

Even with all nostalgic features, you’ll still get modern conveniences such as Wi-Fi, washer and dryer, dishwasher, off-street parking and light housekeeping every third day.

When it comes time to eat, head to the gorgeous and well-stocked kitchen where you’ll always find all the basics for a quick snack or gourmet meal. We stock the pantry and fridge with cereal, pancake mix, spices, soda, butter, milk, Florida OJ, tea, coffee and more.

The thoughtful touches continue into the bathroom, where you’ll find a towel warmer and luxurious custom-made Erewhon Retreat tea olive soap, made from the plants found around the home.

At night, lay your head down on the plush mattresses and fall asleep on luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets. Choose from either of the queen bedrooms, one with en suite that includes a tub and shower. There is a second, large master bath, also with tub and shower and a pull out couch in the den.

Even the backyard invokes feelings of another era, when gardens were a sense of pride for homeowners. Meander through the well-kept yard, smelling and enjoying the vibrant colors of the numerous native Florida plants. Grab a book and find a spot of shade under the 90-year-old camphor trees and laurel oaks. In the evening hours, guests of the both the cottage and the bungalow gather on the deck, swapping stories of the day.

DISCOVER OLD SEMINOLE HEIGHTS

Part of Tampa’s first suburb, Old Seminole, Erehwon Retreat sits near numerous restaurants, pubs and shops and is a short drive to downtown Tampa, Ybor City and the airport. The Bungalow is ideal for a getaway, long-term stay during Off Seasons, and everything in between.

Bungalow Guest Reviews

A Wonderful Swing on the Front Porch…
Sandy – March 2020
My husband and I arrived in Seminole Heights on the evening of March 1 with the intent of spending an entire month enjoying Florida. We loved our new home! It was not only a restful cottage, but also a perfect launching pad for fun adventures… Henry was a lovely and gracious host. In addition, he became a wonderful caregiver to us as it became more and more clear that the Coronavirus was invading our country, and special care needed to be taken. His cleaning procedures were so thorough, and he provided all that we needed to feel and be safe. We were sad to end our month’s stay early, but once again Henry was gracious and accommodating. We would definitely recommend Erehwon Retreat for your holiday in Florida, and hope to return ourselves! 

Didn’t want to leave
Shane – June 2019
Henry’s place was of the best places I have stayed for comfort, quality, cleanliness, value, and a great host. It is located in a safe and upcoming neighborhood with several interesting restaurants and shops within walking distance. It is also an easy Lift or Uber ride to most places around Tampa (never more than a three minute wait for pick-up while I was there). Very relaxing living spaces in a comfortable homey atmosphere. Highly recommended!

It’s the little things
Chris – March 2019
Everything about the Bungalow is as you’d expect. It’s the level of hospitality and consideration the host, Henry, provides that sets the home apart from the rest of Airbnb listings. As a seasoned traveler w/ family, we rely upon concierge services more than most. Henry meets and exceeds this need. Little touches such as a French Press, children’s toys and spices/condiments enhanced our stay. In a historic neighborhood, on a cobblestone street and just minutes from Waterworks, Armature, Hyde Park, SoHo (South Howard St), the Seminole Heights community is perfectly positioned for Tampa’s finest. Great beeches are <45min away.
