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 $15.00 non refundable, for the dog (one time only) and a $25.00 deposit (refundable).
Pilar was very available to answer any of our questions. We were very busy during our time there and never got to meet--but know she was only a text away! We wished we had chosen to stay here for our entire vacation as we were much more comfortable than the hotel. Very clean place, that smelled fresh upon arrival...not like cleaning chemicals. Great breezes though the many windows. Small place but it had everything we would need. Very well thought out and planned space. Extremely big yard! Host recommended a couple restaurants and they were SPOT ON! Thanks Pilar!
The apartment was attractive, clean, and comfortable. I felt relaxed having home amenities and the gracious use of hammocks in the backyard. The location was conveniently located to the beach; it was easy to get around by car. Pilar was always quick to respond to my questions and helpful with driving directions. I highly recommend this listing.
Our experience was wonderful! The apartment was cheerful and clean, decorated beautifully and was furnished with everything we could need. Pilar was kind and helpful and checked in a couple of times to see if we needed anything. The location was central to everything in Tampa and St. Pete and the neighborhood was safe. We are looking forward to our next visit to St Pete, hopefully in the same location. Thanks for a great visit Pilar!
Key was under the mat so we could get in when ever we arrived. Our plane had been delayed a few times and it was not a problem. The apartment was exactly like the pictures and descriptions. Very cozy and comfortable.
Very welcoming and excellent communications. I recommend this charming apartment to my fellow travelers. It provides all one needs for either a short or long visit. Very accessible to all locations in St. Pete. Excellent shopping and restaurants in close proximity.
Pilar war sehr herzlich und hat uns trotz einer sehr frühen Ankunft das Haus bereitgestellt. Die Wohnung hat eine großen Gärten mit Hängematten und liegt günstig in St. Petersburg, um Ausflüge zu machen. Das Appartement selbst ist klein, es hat eine Küche, einen Essbereich, ein kleines Wohnzimmer und Schlafzimmer und ein winziges Bad. Das Bett ist gemütlich und sauber. Die Küche IST ganz gut ausgerüstet für Selbstversorger. Alles in allem für den Preis eine sehr gute Unterkunft.

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!! :)
