Angie and I are both retired USAF. We got to sample lodging across the U.S. and in several countries. When we started the Acorn Cottage we wanted to provide travelers with something more like a home instead of a furnished box. In other words, somewhere that WE would want to stay!

Acorn cottage is a great place. It is walking distance to cafes, bars, and restaurants in Central Ave, and a short drive to downtown and the beaches. The apartment fit our group of 5 very comfortably and had all the amenities we needed during our stay. Rick and Angie are gracious hosts and stayed in communication thought the process.

We arrived for the weekend of the Grand Prix of St Pete, and we were very happy with our experience at Rick and Angie's place! I called Rick the day we arrived, and he met us to show us around. The place is an awesome little find and the area has lots of restaurants and places to get a drink. Without a doubt one of the better values we have had. Rick was very accommodating and let us check out a little late after the race, which was awesome because we grabbed showers before heading to the airport.

Look for the book "One Tank Trips". We highly recommend this for your stay at this location.

Super cute apartment with so many little thoughtful details. We felt right at home and wished we had booked for longer. Rick was super cool, couldn't ask for a better host.

I came to St. Pete with three other friends. And I write this review on behalf of all of us. Rick, Angie and their dog BJ were the best hosts we could have asked for. We were infact their first guests from India, and they made us feel super comfortable and at home! Our flight landed late at night, and Rick was up to welcome us and show us around the cottage. And after that, being the sweetie that he is, he took us to Walmart so we could buy some supplies. Angie is the most beautiful artist we know, and her studio is a treasure trove. The two of them put in amazing amounts of work to make the Acorn Cottage what it is today, and it's the cutest cottage you'll ever find. Plus there's eclectic artwork all over the cottage! We spent about 5 days in the Acorn Cottage, and towards the end, we didn't want to leave. It truly had become a home away from home. Thank you Rick and Angie. For making the Acorn Cottage the cutest cottage ever, and for being the warm folks that you are. We've made some lasting friendships, and we'd advise everyone to stay with them if visiting St. Pete!

Blue Jay fans staying for baseball games at the Trop. Location was great. 30 min walk to the Trop through Central Ave (lots of places to eat and drink). Excellent hosts. Great experience. Well kept and clean accommodations. Place was as advertised and would definitely stay again.

Rick & Angie User Profile

We were both career USAF and are now self-employed and semi-retired. Our daughter is active duty US Army. Angie lived less than a mile from here during high school and college before she entered the USAF. She knows the area very well and gives great directions!. She does fabric art, slipcovers for furniture, screen printing and other activities that are enjoyable and sometimes profitable. I am one of many independent consultants who work from home for a firm that deals with internet trends and marketing. I also do some woodworking and crafting and sell some of it on the internet. That's my enjoyable and sometimes profitable contribution to the budget.

We both have a variety of interests and there is normally one or more on-going projects around our house. It's normal to see us covered with things like thread, sawdust or paint. After the USAF we both did some work in the Home Décor industry as custom fabricators, so we have some interesting skill sets."
