Found at the core of Florida’s varying landscapes and not too far from the state’s dazzling array of amusement parks, Tampa has a quaint charm of its own. There’s something here for everyone, from the hipster teen and hardcore partygoer, to even your hip grandmother. Immerse yourself in the rich local culture with a wide array of festivals, suitable for both the timid and adventurous.
And if you’re wondering where to stay in Tampa, Airbnb has plenty of options for you. Experience Tampa for yourself by booking a weekend stay near some of the favourite tourist spots. Check out these seven Airbnbs in Tampa, Florida for your weekend trip.
Draped by heavy hanging curtains, the summer rays filter into a soft light that illuminates the apartment with a natural glow. Accommodating up to 5 people, this comfortable apartment will make you feel as though you’re living in an idyllic dream, with all the modern facilities included. Explore the huge wraparound balcony upstairs. With a stunning view of the surrounding buildings, enjoy a lazy afternoon with a book in hand as the clouds pass leisurely above you. This is one of the best Tampa vacation rentals if you want to stay within walking distance of the downtown area. Shop till you drop with affordable bargain stores and exquisite boutiques, or get a drink at some of the liveliest bar hangouts while waiting for your friend to be done with their retail therapy. After a hot shower, unwind in the minimally aesthetic rooms. Fall asleep in comfort with the soft queen-sized beds on oak bed frames, and recharge ready for another day of exploring tomorrow.

Take a short drive from the airport, and you will find yourself near a quaint little apartment surrounded by curious peacocks roaming around the area. With a private pool encased by glass, take a relaxing dip after your long flight while admiring the clear blue skies, or indulge in a spa in the evening, Jacuzzi style. Talk to the friendly host, Garrett, and he will tell you all about the must-see places in this neighbourhood. Busch Gardens, which is one of the top theme parks and amusement parks in Tampa, is just a short 20-minute drive away. After screaming your lungs out at the various rides and attractions, rest up in this simply furnished room with plummy hues woven into the intricate baroque-styled sheets.
The Floridian Escape

Listen to the sweet songs of nature’s creation in the morning, and laugh over nostalgic stories under the dazzling array of stars when night falls. If you’re looking for seclusion and privacy, then this is one of the most ideal rentals in Tampa, FL for that purpose. With accommodation for up to 3 people, plan for a soothing getaway at this little piece of heaven hidden from the prying eyes of others. The spacious outdoor pool beckons you over, with its clear waters inviting you to wash off the summer’s heat. Rent a canoe from the hosts and drift down the river on slower days, just appreciating the scenic stillness of the gently swaying trees and cool summer breeze. If you’re lucky, you may spot an alligator or two! Minutes away from this serene escape is the popular Tampa Aquarium. If you’d like to interact with your favourite sea creatures, be sure to join the immersive dive programmes, where you’ll get to swim with the fish. If swimming isn’t your forte, then check out the Penguins: Backstage Pass programme, where guests get to hang out with penguins on a personal level. Who doesn’t love a cute, cuddly penguin?

Stay comfortably in this homely loft built in 1890s, renovated into a chic and modern double-storey estate. Surrounded by other historic homes, explore the area to find similar gems lying in plain sight. Accommodating up to 2 people, snuggle up on the comfy queen-sized beds with personal touches from the hosts in the form of plush animals laid out for you to cuddle with. Join the friendly hosts, Lauren and family, for dinner in the shared living room, or take a short afternoon siesta by the outdoor hammocks under the shade of surrounding palm trees. If you’re bored of staying in the house, rent a bike from Lauren and cycle down to Bayshore Boulevard, a waterfront road popular among cyclists for its wide bike lanes and amazing views. If you’d like to meet man’s best friend, drive down to Picnic Island Park, just 5 minutes away, where you can take a peaceful stroll along the pier, or hang out with pups on the dog beach. Alternatively, drive the same amount of time up to Tampa Bay, where you can visit Dinosaur World. Filled with fossils from the past and various dinosaurs standing majestically and tall, you’re bound to take home something new with this trip. Check out this short video about the various attractions available at Dinosaur World!
