Interaction with Guests
We are at home when you visit and welcome conversation and pleasant exchanges. Your privacy is important to us and your room is secluded enough to offer you as much privacy as you need.
The New York Times says, "This quiet residential neighborhood stuffed with old houses is the opposite of the happening downtown scene, which might just be its appeal. Those discovering this area, largely through word of mouth, say they love its sense of community while relishing the easy access to downtown. With its eclectic architecture, brick streets, picket fences and lush foliage, the neighborhood offers an odd blend of New England style and tropical sensibility. Despite its residential nature, it is just north of St. Petersburg’s downtown, making it convenient to the city’s booming cultural and entertainment scene. It also offers easy access for out-of-towners, since it is just 20 minutes from Tampa International Airport."
There is a local bus system as well as a downtown trolley that goes to the large Gulf beaches and the major shopping areas downtown and along Central Avenue.

Sand and Shoes and Wet Stuff
Sand is really hard on the floors. If you are just back from the beach please try to brush it off outside. Eventually we will have an outdoor shower.
Please try to check your shoes for sand before coming in.
Please put wet stuff on the tiled bathroom floor, not the wood floor or bed.
Warm welcome even though our arrival was very late at night. Room as lovely as pictured in this art-filled house! Quiet neighbourhood full of character; 2 blocks to the water. Beauty all around. Garden. Blossoming trees. Porches. The hot tub in back! The kitchen is Linda's domain, and she will take care of you. Delicious fruit every morning, homemade bread, good coffee. Fabulous Sunday breakfast, such interesting flavours! Terrific conversations, lots of laughs,Warren a fine story-teller. Wonderful hosts, we feel like we have made two new friends.
A fifteen minute walk along Beach Drive to restaurants, shops, and the Looper Trolley which takes you all around downtown and links with the Central Trolley (good shopping along Central Ave., plus the Acropolis restaurant) to the "big" beaches. We ate most of our meals outside at restaurants like Moon Under Water, our favourite for reasonably priced good food. Half way through our week the weather turned unusually cool, so we were glad to be close to lots of galleries. Be sure to walk to the Sunken Gardens, and snack at St. Pete's Bakery next door. (Special thanks to Warren, for picking us up when we got caught in a downpour!) You might want to catch the boat for a Dolphin Cruise - sightings guaranteed! Do call for times, as their website needs updating. They leave from The Pier, the big one with the oddly shaped building at the end. Alas, it was a little too windy for kayaking when we were there, but the bikes were fun. This place is full of delights. Enjoy!
We had a fantastic stay with Linda and Warren and would highly recommend their listing to anyone of any age or background. They have a beautiful home and are incredibly hospitable people. The room is large but still cosy with everything provided. We particularly enjoyed Linda's homemade bread (which was included with breakfast) and the fantastic location; downtown St Petersburg was easily walkable. There is so much to do in the area and we wish we could have stayed longer. Linda and Warren's local recommendations were invaluable!
Warren and Linda made my husband and I feel like we were at home. They were very nice and welcoming!! Their house was beautiful and full of art just like the pictures! The breakfast Linda made on Sunday was so delicious! The neighborhood was gorgeous! We walked everywhere and we even biked to the Snell island for a wedding. If and when we come back to St. Petersburg we will try and stay with them again!
Thanks again Warren and Linda!! :D
This beautiful home is so full of unique and artistic treasures that it is a work of art in itself. Linda and her husband are both very talented artists with a wealth of life experiences that will captivate guests if they have the inclination to chat. Linda serves a continental breakfast that includes the freshest fruit from their garden and fabulous homemade breads. The guest bedroom is very comfortable with a private bathroom immediately adjacent to it. The home is located in a beautiful neighborhood with tree-shaded streets and lovely homes and landscaping. Interesting shops and restaurants are within walking distance. If you visit this B and B, you will find it a joyous and memorable experience.
Nice hosts and great neighborhood and location. Who could ask for more.
Hi Mary, Sometimes such a short review means people didn't really like their stay. I know you did, but I just wanted to make sure other folks knew too. Mary was with us for a month and became part of the family, often having dinner with us and going to events in St. Pete with us. Maddy, her little dog, stayed too and we often let her out to hang out with us during the day and Mary would let our pups out for us too. Hope you got back safely and enjoyed the Super Bowl!
Warren and Linda were wonderful hosts, their house is beautiful and I felt very comfortable there. They were more than accommodating and I can't thank them enough for making my short stay more enjoyable.
Very nice and quaint house in a beautiful neighborhood, very family atmosphere, close to beautiful downtown St. Petersburg, water, and parks.
Warren and I are both artists and our home reflects both our love of art and our love of older homes.
We moved to St. Petersburg in 2010 so that I could teach at St. Petersburg College. The bonus is that St. Pete and particularly where we live, in the Old NE neighborhood, is paradise. There is always, and I mean always, something going on and everything is accessible and affordable.
My biggest pleasure is to cook healthy, gourmet meals for friends and family and now, I hope, guests. Warren's biggest pleasure is to have company and make sure they have a great time.
