As you sit on the front porch of Erehwon Bungalow 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.


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.


Tampa’s first suburb was  Seminole Heights, Erehwon Bungalow Retreat sits near numerous restaurants, pubs and shops and is 3 miles from downtown Tampa & Ybor City. The Bungalow is ideal for a getaway, long-term stay, and everything in between.

Bungalow Guest Reviews

You’ll love it!
Christina – December 2023
Judy went above and beyond by even placing eggs, milk, and orange juice in the home for us without requesting these small but essential things. she is extremely responsive, pleasant to converse with, and extremely responsive.
The home was every bit of the peaceful calming place to stay that we hoped for and we highly recommend staying. You’ll love it!
Perfect for our Needs
Scott – December 2023
The place was perfect for our needs. Located within blocks of our son, daughter in law, and new granddaughter. Judy was super helpful setting up our reservation and stayed in touch with us throughout our stay. The theme for the house made me think this neighborhood must have been something else in its heyday.
The Bungalow Felt Like Home
Christopher – May 2022
My family and I had an amazing experience at this Tampa bungalow. The owner, Henry, was an amazing host. Thanks so much for everything you provided us during the week. Will definitely stay again.
Great Home, Great Neighborhood – Hard to Beat
Matt & Kim – January-February 2022
Great home in a really nice neighborhood. Just love all the arts and crafts style homes (many restored). Nice lush neighborhood environment with lots of live oaks covered in Spanish moss, palm trees and tropical vegetation everywhere. We enjoyed our month here and could easily see ourselves living there. The front porch and rear deck were perfect for enjoying the beautiful Florida weather. The location provided a great jumping off point for all kinds of exploring both within and well beyond Tampa Bay itself. Thanks again.
Tampa’s Hidden Gem
Debbie – December 2022
The “stay” started with the meeting of the host! Such a local wealth of knowledge. Our host told of days gone by in the era of the home and things inside even, so intriguingly! His knowledge of the local area took us places we’d never seen otherwise! The attention to comfort of his guests is so obvious from Pure Irish butter to 4 types of coffee, super comfy beds to porch swings and patios THIS place was a vacation for the senses as well! So cozy, clean and calming room color palette. Just can’t say enough good things about Mr. Young and his place!
This home was perfect for our family as we moved our son into his freshman year…
Barbara – August 2021
This is a gorgeous property located in a tranquil neighborhood of beautiful craftsman style bungalows. This two bedroom, two bath home was perfect for our family as we moved our son into his freshman year at University of South Florida (USF). USF is a quick 10-12 minute drive up the highway. Instead of cramming ourselves into a standard hotel room with all of my sons college belongings, we were able to spread out in this beautiful home for the same price as a hotel room. Henry, the proprietor, does not miss a single detail relative to guest comfort. While the home was built in 1920 and retains that beautiful historic flair, underneath that is every modern convenience you could want, fast internet, plenty of outlets for charging devices etc. Henry also provides so many lovely touches like the quality bedding, terrific kitchen essentials plus some extra niceties like a coffee grinder and a french press. Henry also leaves staples for breakfast, eggs, English muffins, juice, milk and coffee so you do not have to run to the supermarket the minute you arrive. Henry leaves no stone unturned when it comes to Covid safety from the sterilizing key holder to the UV lights he utilizes in between guests. Henry himself is just the right mix of available but unobtrusive. Every need we had he attended to right away. There is a lovely front porch, a nice living room and dining room and a cute den for our family to spread out in and relax after a hot day of moving our son into USF. I only wish we had more time to talk with Henry as not only is he a very interesting fellow, he is a wealth of information about the area. Book this property with confidence!
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 Bungalow 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!
