Beautiful new apartment, completely remodeled in 2013. This apartment is nestled on a property that is covered with mango trees, pines, palms & avocados. Centered in the midst of the hot spots in St. Pete and the beaches, check also Mi Casa, Su Casa.
It is a very nice apartment on a second floor,(please check also Mi Casa su Casa in the first floor), completely renovated, clean and comfortable. It has one queen size bed in the bedroom and one futon that turns into a full size bed in the living room. We live in the main house and can be reached very easily for any questions or if you need something. The fenced yard has lots of space to sit around and relax. You can use the hammocks and chairs that hang from the trees and light up the fire pit and make smores with the kids :). If you come in a big group, you could book the downstairs apartment too, please look for my other listing: Mi Casa su Casa.
Cable, wi fi internet, hammocks, fire pit, beach chairs and umbrella.
Interaction with Guests
You will have an independent access to the apartment so its very private but if you need something, we live in the main house and we would be very happy to assist you in every way we can. (I can communicate in English, Spanish and Italian)
Very quiet neighborhood and close to everything. Practically 5 minutes away from most important places like Gulfport and the Beaches, the mall at Tyrone, restaurants, Galleries and Museums. The Pinellas Trail is just 4 blocks from the apartment so, if you like to bike or run or just walk, this is perfect for you!
There is public transportation close by but not so frequent so the best way to move around is by car.
Other Things to Note
We love animals and we have a little Rat Terrier, her name is Lola. She is just a puppy and is very active and friendly. She doesn't bark so don't worry about noise. Please, see house rules for details about your dog.
Please no smoking inside the apartment or parties. No more than 4 guests in the apartment. We accept guests who want to bring a small dog (up to 25 pounds) but he-she has to be house trained please. No dogs allowed on the beds. Also, we charge a fee of $25.00 non refundable, for the dog (one time only).
Pilar is a wonderful host. Her treehouse apartment was comfy and clean. Much better than any hotel! Will recommend to friends!
We had a wonderful time here! Pilar and her husband were very welcoming, the apartment and the big yard were great. The neighborhood is nice and quiet and the location is very central so it was easy to get to the beaches, restaurants, St. Petersburg and Tampa. Pilar recommended that we go to Gulfport to shop and have dinner and it was the perfect place for that. We would definitely stay here again!
Pilar was fabulous! Our flight was delayed a few times and we didn't end up arriving until very late our first night. Pilar, was very accommodating and made things stress-free. The apartment was better than the photos! Clean, cozy, comfortable bed and excellent kitchen! We felt like we were home away from home. Pilar, gave you your privacy but if you needed her, she was around or responded to her email right away. The neighborhood was safe. comfortable and close to the beach, restaurants, coffee shops, downtown St. Pete, etc. The price of this apartment is outstanding! My husband and I would highly recommend Pilar's apartment. You can't beat the price, location, cleanliness, and coziness! We will definitely book with Pilar next time we are in St. Pete!
Pilar gave us a warm welcome eventhough we changed our arrival time (2 hours earlier). It was so nice, that we could leave our luggage in the appartment while she finished it up.
The apparment was so great- clean, quiet, cozy and really nice decorated. It has everything you need and we felt very comfortable. We only stayed 2 nights, but we wished we could stay longer! Highly recommend this place!

Hi there! My name is Pilar, I am an artist and painter. I work locally as a real estate agent. I am originally from Ecuador and I love to visit new places and meet people. I have lived in different countries: Ecuador, USA (Cambridge,MD and Orlando) ,Mexico D.F., and Italy. When I first came to Saint Petersburg, I just fell in love with the city. The old houses, big old oak trees with Spanish moss, the beaches, Gulfport and the little restaurants and art shows, farmer markets and that Key West- like charm. Everybody is so relaxed and friendly!!! I had to move here!!! So, I found this cute little and very old house (1924) with a huge Oak in the front!! and have spent this last year remodeling it. My husband Terry and I live in the front house and the 2 apartments are in the back. We love to sail in Terry's boat and we would be so happy to have you as our guests!! :)
