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 (website hidden). 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.
This house was perfect in a quiet neighborhood. The host responded very quickly to email. Everything was exactly as advertised. A problem with wifi was taken care of immediately. We definitely plan to return.
Wij (een gezin met 2 kinderen 14 en 15 jaar) hebben 1 week genoten van dit fantastische huis. Alles was aanwezig. Het huis was groot en schoon. De bedden waren goed en de WIFI was snel. We hadden 4 fietsen ter beschikking en zijn diverse keren naar Downtown gefietst. Daar zijn kleine strandjes. We hebben in Downtown ook veel eekhoorntjes gevoerd en dolfijnen, pelikanen, flamingo’s en zee-arenden gezien. Sint Petersburg is een mooie plaats (we vonden zelfs mooier als Miami) met mooie grote stranden (St. Pete Beach, Madeira Beach en Treasure Island) met zand als poedersuiker. Het winkelcentrum is ook dichtbij. Verder is het wel gemakkelijk dat de contactpersoon de buurvrouw (Dena) is, zij heeft ons verteld waar naar toe te gaan. Dit huis is voor iedereen aan te raden. Ten slotte nog een slecht bericht: we waren er amper 1 dag en kregen zondagochtend te horen dat mijn moeder was overleden. We konden pas zaterdag terug, maar het huis en de omgeving hebben ons toch nog een vakantiegevoel en leuke kerstdagen gegeven.
We never got to meet the host as he was out of the country but despite his absence we found the house to be perfect. We had another couple join us from Canada and it worked out perfectly for four people and there is a third bedroom so I see no reason why it would not work for another couple. The house was perfectly clean and well prepared for our arrival and Dena, the person in charge, was absolutely wonderful about making sure that every need was taken care of. There was one small problem with the drain in the tub and it was taken care of in 30 minutes. As an airbnb host myself I know the importance of making sure everything is perfect for the guest and of all the airbnb homes we have stayed this was one of the best. We would highly recommend this home for your visit to the area and found it to be close to all the major attractions and events. The host has a packet of information for the guest that contains all the local attractions that we found to be quite helpful. Every appliance was in perfect condition and all the light bulbs were working and there were no quirky things, like "you need to jiggle this or that to make it work." This was he cleanest home we have ever stayed and not a speck of dust or dirt anywhere.
This was such a great option for our company. We have three people and were in St Petersburg for 9 days. It was good for team building to share spaces and meals as well as good for the budget. The house was clean and spacious. It was great to have laundry facilities on site. It was nice to get away from the buzz of the event and have a quiet retreat where we could work and rest.
Thank you David for your nice comments on the house.
I will let Dena checks for the pump, it used to be on top of the cabinet in the laundry room...otherwise we will buy a new one!
We will also have to check why the drain of the bathtub is not working anymore. Thank you for telling us.
We hope you can come back another time.
Well Simply put that was the most amazing experience for me and my family. Martine were very helpful and took care of all our needs, but not just that. It was done with sense of urgency and care that i did not expect. They are always available and made our stay an amazing memory.
As for the house, brilliant for a picky family like us there was nothing to pick on. Furnished very well, spacious, internet is fast, cable is good and well maintained. If one thing to add is another TV.
Martine .. Thank you for making our stay a very pleasurable memory.
Martine's home is beautiful, clean, and a wonderful place to stay while on vacation in St Petersburg. Our first impression was how airy and spacious the house is. The kitchen had nearly everything we needed and the beds were very comfortable. She even offered a toddler bed for our son and a high chair for our baby daughter. The house is not within walking distance to any beaches but only a short drive away. We will definitely stay here again and I recommend it to others.
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!
