About this listing

Enjoy your own suite in our beautiful home within walking distance of all the amenities that downtown St. Pete has to offer: gorgeous waterfront parks that run for miles, great restaurants, museums, entertainment and shopping. "Homemade everything" healthy breakfast provided!

The space

Nestled in a beautiful neighborhood of St. Petersburg, this large guest room, in a private home with its own bath and seating area, is one block from the third largest waterfront park system in North America where bike and walking trails surround the Bay.

There is no other neighborhood like this one, featured in "This Old House" as one of the top ten historic bungalow neighborhoods in the USA.

We are a short walk to restaurants, museums, galleries, clubs and more. Saint Petersburg has been voted the #1 medium sized art town in the US three years in a row. It is home to the Dali Museum, the Chihuly Art Glass Museum, the Holocaust Museum and a Museum of Fine Arts.

Don't miss the wonderful Saturday Morning Market in St. Pete with great food, local organic produce, art and craft vendors and live music. (Labor Day thru Memorial Day, 9:00-2:00) You can walk there right along the bay! Summer (URL HIDDEN) a shady park a few blocks away.

Suitable for one person or a couple. Guests are welcome to share the whole house. This sweet bungalow has front and back porches for outdoor living and easy free parking. We have two kayaks and two bicycles available for your use.

Traveling with a little one? We have a pack & play for your use and thick comfy sleeping bags if you need them. Juice boxes are in the fridge!

A gourmet, full breakfast is available on Sunday, continental on Saturday and weekdays.
Special occasion? Talk to me about catering and having guests.

We are located 30 minutes from the Tampa Airport, and close to Busch Gardens, Ybor City and International Mall. Take a day trip to Disney World, Sea World or Universal Studios, just 90 minutes away.

There is a large public pool and and a public "Bay" beach just three blocks away. Gulf Beaches are a short 15 minute drive or dedicated trolley ride away. These are some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

We have two, well behaved, senior cocker spaniels that love company. We recently got a new cocker puppy. She is seven months old and loves guests but is not well behaved yet. We would consider a medium to small dog as a guest.

Note: The bed is a full size, not a queen. If you require one, we have a good quality queen air mattress but a queen is only 6 inches wider and 5 inches longer than a full size.

Note: When you inquire, could you please help me get to know you by describing yourself and your trip? Thank you.

Our stay at Linda's home was wonderful. The location is perfect (best neighborhood, near the water and downtown area/restaurants/shops). Her home is on a quaint and quiet street in the historic old NE. Their backyard area is very relaxing. Linda and her husband Warren are warm, welcoming, and accommodating. They made sure every part of our stay was taken care of. Linda is an excellent chef; she offers coffee made to order and a delicious breakfast. It was great getting to know Linda and Warren. Also, our dogs loved playing with her dogs! We highly recommend you plan your stay at Linda's home.

Linda and Warren's place is the perfect location. It's short distance from some must see attractions, which we enjoyed. Their home is clean and well kept, and Linda's breakfast is delicious. Plus, we have two doggies at home, so the cocker spaniels were a special treat. They're so sweet! Our stay was wonderful and we would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in St. Pete.

Linda and Warren were fabulous hosts. They provided delicious breakfasts and great conversation. Their house is a great home base while exploring the city, as well as the perfect place to spend an afternoon relaxing. We couldn't recommend them more highly!

Linda and Warren are lovely and so is their home! It's artistically decorated, spacious and comfortable, and within walking distance of restaurants, museums, shops and the beach. Linda's breakfasts are a highlight, and she and Warren are so much fun to chat with. We look forward to staying with them and their sweet pups on our next trip to St Pete!

We had a great experience. The location is excellent, very close to the water and an easy walk to town which has numerous dining, shopping and cultural options. The hosts are extremely welcoming. Their home is gorgeous. Everything was easy and we very much enjoyed our stay.

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.
