Enjoy a unique experience aboard a motor yacht docked at a secure marina surrounded by the campus of the University of South Florida at St. Petersburg and located a short walk from the restaurants, sights and sounds of downtown St. Petersburg's waterfront on beautiful Tampa Bay.
John and Martha'a boat was a fun place to stay. It was clean, comfortable, and near all the neat places. John and Martha were very responsive to my request and their concierge Jeff was very helpful. Will stay again when in St Pete!
The Marina and the House Yacht were beautiful. All accommodations were exactly as pictured - only, more "comfy" than can be gleaned from just photographs.
I will definitely consider again when I am in the area.
The yacht was comfortable and a great alternative to hotel life. Relaxing aft deck for coffee and cocktails! Marina is quiet and well secured. While walk-able to Fish Tales (a couple blocks) better to drive to downtown for the eating/drinking/shopping. This certainly represents water living in St. Pete.
John introduced us to Jeff, his marina concierge. Jeff showed us to the boat, realized that we were boat-savvy people, gave us a short tour and we were off to happy hour.
Later that night we invited friends for wine on the aft deck. Quite lovely. Saturday and Sunday mornings having coffee and reading the paper on the deck were great.
It's a nice boat in good shape and a welcome change of pace from normal lodging.
We had a wonderful and relaxing time staying aboard the motor yacht.
Jeff, the concierge was very available for us, and did everything he could to answer questions and make us comfortable. We also felt very safe in the area of Marina...
Thank you so much! We had a fabulous time and was the envy of many. Jeff was great and informative. I plan on doing this again, if available, the next time I'm in the St Pete area!
Awesome spot for 2-3 nights! Beautiful sun deck with lots of seating and upper deck available. Caught catfish and sea bass right of the back swim deck of boat (wouldn't recommend swimming). Beautiful master bedroom with tv, private bathroom and shower. Quaint living room with leather sofa and tv. Full Kitchen, cabin bunk bed / sofa room. Concierge Jeff is the man! Showed us to pool and gave keys / taught us water and lighting throughout. Awesome pool area. Walking distance to great bar / restaurant strip in DT St. Pete. Plan on staying again!
John is a retired executive from the engineering and construction industry and Martha is a business executive with a NYSE document solutions company.
Martha and I are living a Christian life with extended family and friends, farming, faith, favor, fun and fulfillment in Odessa, Florida. We are boating folks blessed with blue water sailing New England on S/Y Acadia (Newport, Rhode Island) during the summer season and coastal cruising Florida on M/V La Familia (St Petersburg, Florida) during the winter season.
Five things that we cannot live without - Jesus, each other, family, friends and faith
