This listing was so much more than the description provided on AirBnB. Karen & Pete are consumate hosts, and the epitome of what makes AirBnb so special.
I came as a guest and left feeling like I was one of the family. Karen was so concerned that I wasn't getting enough food, and she would text me frequently with what she was preparing. I always knew what to expect.
I am already planning next years trip and anxious to take my family, just so they will have the ability to meet Karen & Pete.
Negatives don't exist with this listing. If there was a downside, it would be that this property books very quickly. So if you are interested, book it immediately or it will be unavailable.
You were like one of the family, coastguard and all...We are looking forward to your return and meeting your family. Don't wait 45 years this time! If we are in your neck of the woods we will be sure to visit your beautiful Airbnb Carriage House listing as well. Safe travels Lee
If you're staying in St. Petersburg and one of Karen's units is available you are definitely going to want to stay with her. I know there are a lot of nice B and B's in Tampa/St. Petersburg, but this one is a real gem. Karen is a very talented host, and natural to that role. You'll be very comfortable with her. She is able to balance generosity and attentiveness with a graceful respect for your plans or privacy. She has great taste, she's a very accomplished chef/cook/baker, and has a keen eye for details. We stayed in the upstairs unit of the building on the right in the photo. That unit is a beauty. It's a very breezy, open space, and the kitchen is set up skillfully. When you first see the unit you'll have that "Oh, yeah!" reaction that people get when their expectations are exceeded.
Just up the street from the cottage is an entrance to a lovely park. We borrowed Karen's bikes and, after a short, pleasant ride, we were in the botanical garden, one of St. Pete's best kept secrets. If you like that sort of thing DO NOT MISS THAT GARDEN. Karen also lent us beach chairs and accouterments and gave great advice regarding the use of our time in our short visit. I wish we'd had more time to spend with Karen and that we'd made time for one of her dinners. If we have the chance to return we'll certainly do that. Between the lunch she provided upon our arrival and the desserts she left for us on our last night it was clear that you will not eat better in St. Petersburg than at Karen's Kitchen. We recommend staying with Karen very highly. You'll have a wonderful visit, I can assure you.
We felt very comfortable for our stay. We enjoyed the bikes, we
Used beach chairs made available to us, we had a pasta dinner Karen made that was very good. The apartment was beautiful and very spacious.
Anything we needed Karen made available. Overall we had a relaxing and enjoyable stay.
The Jasinsky's from Northern Ontario, Canada loved this jem of a place. Karen the host catering to us totally, from the time we woke up in the morning until we turned off the lights at night. The place is very central, clean and spacious. I would totally recommend trying one of her add-on meals, truly homecooking at his best.(ps, we had five nights of wonderful meals) She makes you feel like one of the family the moment you drive up to the house. We stayed in the self contai.ned apt. over the garage, totally private..until we meet again xoxoxo
Karen und Peter sind sehr offene, herzliche Gastgeber, die mich nach meiner Ankunft gleich (hatte eine starke Erkältung) mit Hustenbonbons und einer heißen Suppe versorgten. Perfekte Balance zwischen Unabhängigkeit und Familienanschluss, wenn mir danach war. Karen war ständig ansprechbar und hilfsbereit und versorgte mich mit allen möglichen Lebensmitteln. Das Apartment war neu fertiggestellt und mit allem Nötigen ausgestattet, darüber hinaus sogar mit einem Espressokocher - einer von Karens Milchaufschäumern komplettierte diese Italian-Coffee-Station - herrlich!
Großartig auch die Location: gleich gegenüber dem Walsingham Park, der zum Laufen oder Spazieren einlädt. Meine Gastgeber liehen mir ein Rad aus, um die Gegend zu erkunden.
Insgesamt eine klasse Airbnb-Erfahrung! Ich würde definitiv und gern wiederkommen!
Mille Grazie, Karen, Peter and Jill!
Loved Barbara, so sweet, so funny...have no clue what she wrote, I need to have a German translator. She was so helpful in telling us what did or did not work in the new apartment. Always so positive and smiling. Hoping the rest of her stay with Ralph is going wonderfully and next time they can vacation together with us.
Karen and her family are the most kind and generous hosts in the Tampa Bay Area! Karen was extremely personable and welcoming. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was always spotless. I had everything I needed to feel welcomed, safe, and ready for the day. Karen's cooking is also extremely delicious! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Only superlatives come to mind when I think of Karen, Pete and their terrific home. The room is very comfortable and quiet with bath en suite. I was well taken care of by Karen who is the Italian mother I never had and Pete with his wonderful sense of humor.
The house is a short drive to the beach and across the street from a park where I walked each morning. I'll be back.

We have always worked from home. My husband a contractor and my self a decorator.
Our children are grown and coupled up. Only 2 grandchildren. Loads of family in the area. We have used airbnb when traveling and have had wonderful experiences and know yours will be as well.
