Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Jacki's place was quaint and ideally located. We were thankful to have the use of a full kitchen, and it was stocked with all of the major appliances that we needed to cook three meals per day. We did not meet Jacki, but she was quick to respond to any inquiries we had both before the rental period and during. She was very accommodating with any requests we had, and we did make a couple. The apartment was well stocked with extra towels and basic supplies as well as pamphlets for the area and local activities. We certainly enjoyed our weekend in St. Pete.

  • That's a great place, with a very good location. Highly recommended!!

  • This is the second time we have rented Jacki's apartment in St. Pete. Once again, everything was as expected and as advertised. The apartment is well maintained, cozy, clean, stocked with all the essentials, and walking distance to everything downtown St. Pete has to offer. And, she even bought a new couch which made watching TV even more comfortable then before. I plan to rent this again next time I am in St. Pete.

  • My first airbnb experience. I was traveling alone on business and just tired of all the constant hotels. Jacki's place was exactly as expected from the pictures, nice, clean and perfect location. I did not meet Jacki but I actually preferred the privacy. Would definitely stay here again. Also to note, this place is a very sweet deal if traveling couples or family with kids. For the price of a hotel in st. petersburg you can get jackies two bedroom apartment. Again, great location. Not one complaint just being my first airbnb experience I have nothing to judge against so just 4/5 stars.

  • This was a comfortable, attractive small two-bedroom space apartment with a well-appointed kitchen. Everything was clean, the location was great and it lived up to its representation on the website. I liked Jacki's attention to environmentally-sound details.

    May 2014
  • A cozy, clean and comfortable spot that was everything I needed it to be. I was here for a couple of days for work and so access to parking (check), coffee and convenient shops (check) and close proximity to highways (check) for my morning routine and commute were all critical.

    Jacki made check in and out easy and was a pleasure to deal with even though we never actually met in person.

    I happily recommend this spot to others.

    May 2014
  • We had an understandable mixup when first arriving. The keycode we had didn't work. Our host was immediately responsive and we were able to get in promptly.

    The place was a great two bedroom, and we loved the location.

    May 2014
