I am offering a bedroom with a comfortable bed in my 2 bedroom apartment with internet access. I don't have cable but I have Amazon fire TV with Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, Netflix, HBO GO, Showtime etc. There is a small television in the room. Close to downtown, beaches, restaurants and interstate.
Great re-gentrified neighborhood on the edge of downtown, 3 blocks from buses, and very close to the interstate. Beaches are 15 to 20 minutes away.
There are some nice bars, restaurants, an amazing vintage store, cafes and an awesome used bookstore within a few blocks.
The room includes a very comfortable queen size bed, dresser and a small closet.
The kitchen is large and you are welcome to use it if you decided.
There is only one bathroom so we will have to share.
I am pretty easy going, friendly and I get along with most every one.
I am a full time student, I do a lot of homework, so ideally I am looking for someone who doesn't bring the party home.
I do have a small dog but he is super quiet and sweet.
Everything except my bedroom
Interaction with Guests
I am generally busy with school and work. I gauge my interaction based on my schedule and what works for my guest(s).
Grand Central District is located just West of Downtown from 16th St to 31st St. It is a thriving source of culture, home to a myriad of galleries & studios like Craftsman House, antique stores, restaurants, unique shops and Haslam's Book Store, Florida's largest new & used book store.

I had a wonderful stay at Paulita's! It was a quick two night trip to Saint Petersburg, but I felt right at home in her beautiful apartment.
The feel is very comfortable, clean and the apartment beautifully decorated. It is also located very close to the downtown area, so can't beat that.
Paulita is also a gracious host and is very respectful of her guests' space and needs. I would highly recommend her cozy bedroom to anyone coming to town! Thanks Paulita :)
This was perfect for two of us, and easy to access the southern part of St. Petersburg and the beach. There was plenty of privacy, but also an opportunity for fun conversation and laughter. Paulita is delightful and funny, and she has a manner that makes you feel at home. Her dog is a sweetheart - we became great friends with him! Paulita was a great introduction to AirBnB for us.
Paulita was a lovely host. She made me most welcome and I really enjoyed meeting her and little Enzo the pup. The room was cozy and the bed was just soo comfortable. Inspite of the warm welcome I did have to leave a day sooner due to major construction taking place just under her apartment, drilling and banging:-( it was NOT at all her fault, she didn't even know this remodle was going to take place....she was so kind as to refund my last day which I didn't expect. Pauletia is great and her little place is just as she describes...you will enjoy meeting her too...
I had the best time! Paulita was wonderful!! Her apartment is adorable. Her pup was so sweet too. I've made a friend for life and made some great memories. :) Completely recommend!
Our stay with Paulita was our very first air B and B experience and it couldn't have been better. We felt very comfortable and right at home. We felt that we could come and go as we please and her place was a nice location and easy to navigate to downtown Saint Pete and to the highway. We felt comfortable cooking at Paulita's and even sharing a bathroom was a breeze. Paulita makes you feel at ease and at home and is very easy to talk to and very knowledgable of the events in the area.
The host made us feel welcome by immediately responding and helping us with a door key problem. She is a warm and bright person.
The apartment pictures accurately portray the apartment and the parking was great with off the street parking for us every night.
We both had busy schedules but the times we we able to interact were warm and comfortable.
Paulita's place was great! Only moments after arriving and meeting Paulita I felt as if I were visiting an old friend. She and Enzo both literally welcomed me with open arms. I spent very little time actually at Paulita's place yet found myself looking forward to getting back to share stories of my adventures with her. Thank you Paulita for welcoming me into your home. The next time I am in the Tampa area I will have another thing to put on my "to do" list. Visit my friend Paulita!
I am originally from Trinidad and Tobago. I have lived in St Pete for several years and I love it here. I love to travel but I don't get to do it nearly enough. As a host I let you do your own thing. Come and go as you please, but I am also open sitting and chatting.
