Interaction with guests
Our property manager Simon will be available to offer his help during your stay when we are not staying in our house in St Petersburg.
Lots of sunshine and countless outdoor activities. With an average temperature of 73.7 degrees and 361 days a year of recorded sunshine, it’s no wonder St. Petersburg’s moniker is the Sunshine City
Immaculate unspoiled beaches on the Gulf of Mexico, are a short drive away from the house, including two of the top ten rated beaches in America (Fort De Soto Park and Sand Key parks). There are no buildings or man-made constructions spoiling the surroundings. Just you, the birds, dolphins, warm water, and soft powdery sand tickling your feet. Once you try it, you will never go back to other beaches on the eastern seaboard around the Miami area.
St. Petersburg is the cultural hub of central Florida. With five museums (including The Dali Museum which houses the largest collection of Salvador Dali’ s works outside of his native Spain) the Chihuly Collection, scores of galleries and an active performing arts community.
In the evening, you can head downtown St Pete (15 minutes by bike or 5 minutes by car) where you will find a wide variety of shops, boutiques, outstanding restaurants and bars facing the marina on Bay Walk. Far from being a lackluster retirement community, downtown St Pete is brimming with concerts, festivals, sports events (such as the Firestone Grand Prix), outdoor farmers markets There is simply always something going on.
Day trips: You can plan day-trips to countless locations: Tampa and its famous zoo, aquarium and amusement park (Busch Garden) are all just half an hour away. A little farther out, DisneyWorld, Universal Studio and everything else Orlando has to offer can be reached in under an hour and a half from the house.
Other things to note
We enjoy the family friendly neighborhood 2 blocks away from multi million houses facing Tampa Bay.
We love our scenic rides along the bay to downtown St Petersburg observing the pelicans' plunges with big splash, the dolphins swimming close by or the fishermen throwing their nets.
We also take advantage of downtown's St Petersburg's thriving lifestyle!
We have a rental agreement that we ask you to sign when booking the house.
We don't allow pets and it is a non smoking house.
We are a retired couple. My husband and I love coming each year during the winter season to our house in Florida. We enjoy its location close to the city and yet not far from the beaches. Our family ties prevent us of spending more time in this wonderful place!
