I am offering a private bedroom in my 2 bedroom apartment with internet access. I don't have cable but I provide access to Netflix and HuluPlus via my Blu Ray. The bedroom does not have a TV but there is one in the living room.
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.
No unapproved guest
clean up after yourself
you break it, you buy it
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!
Pauilta went out of her way to make this trip welcoming and very comfortable. We shared good conversation, but I never felt pressured to interact. The neighborhood was quiet and within 2 miles of my training (15 minutes from any beach and I went to several)! Minutes from downtown St. Petersburg, The Dali Museum, and Grand Central (lots of new shops and restaurants). Enzo, her little dog, was a pleasure to be around. Thanks Paulita!
Paulita was lovely!!! Her home has an overall "warm" feeling. Very comfortable and relaxed and easy to make yourself at home.
Checking in was easy, good parking and conveniently located just off the highway. Very quick with communication.
Definitely recommend if you are looking for a quiet & relaxed space. We both enjoyed sitting and talking with Paulita, thank you for a lovely stay in your home!
I cannot imagine having a more enjoyable time staying with Paulita. She is a warm, welcoming, and engaging conversationalist and host. Her space is both comfortable in the physical sense and comfortable in the interpersonal sense. She generously invited me to her own social events and was happy to have me attend or not as my schedule enabled. Also she has a most adorable and well-behaved terrier who cuddled with me if I left my bedroom door open! I would move to St. Petersburg just to be friends with Paulita!!!
Where do I start...I was visiting St. Pete for New Years on a solo trip with no plans. I left St. Pete with new friends, great experiences and one of the best NYEs I've ever had all thanks to Paulita. Paulita is an amazing host. She not only mad me feel welcome, but she went above and beyond by telling me things to do in the neighborhood, introducing me to some of her friends, making sure the room I was staying in had everything I needed, and hanging out when she had time.
Perfect balance of conversation and private space. When I wanted to chat she was there and when I didn't she wasn't -- yeah, it was like a magic trick she's obviously mastered. She has the smartest little dog -- makes staying in the apartment that much better (he also knows when to give you space). Her home was exactly as advertised -- though she was a little modest in describing how amazing the neighborhood is. Everything is within walking distance with a great downtown area and beaches you can get to easily. House is super comfy and nicely decorated.
If I make it back to St. Pete I know exactly where I'm going!
Paulina was a delightful host.. She is generous, gracious, intelligent couldn't have been better! Highly recommend her! Couldn't say anything any more nicely about her. She's great!
I am originally from Trinidad and Tobago. I have lived in St Pete for 5 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.
