About this listing
You are welcome to come enjoy my Florida retreat! You'll have 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, and a private patio. There is wi-fi, fax, four flat screen TVs, one with full digital cable and a blue ray player. I'm confident you will be comfortable here.
This two story townhouse has lots of room for your group. The first floor consists of a large combination living, dining area, an eat-in kitchen, a half bath and a laundry. The living room walks out to a private patio with palm and orange trees, recliners, a gas grill, and a patio table and four comfy chairs. The leather sectional is comparable to two full size sofas. The dining table seats six and has two leaves to add if needed. The stainless and granite kitchen is fully equipped. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and two baths. The huge master bedroom has a split king bed, which is two XL twins that can be joined together to make a king (Just let us know your preference.) Both beds are memory foam and adjustable and have a massage option. There is also a leather recliner and a 39" TV and dvd player. The master bath consists of a vanity open to the bedroom and a seperate room for the toilet and shower. One of the 3 bedroom has a queen bed, and one has two twin beds. Both have flat screen TVs.
The community has a shared heated pool and is across the street from a large park with many amenities. Publix, Walmart and many restaurants are within about three miles. The Boyd Hill Nature area is nearby and you are within about 10 minutes of some prize winning beaches. Downtown St Pete is beautiful and exciting. Some of the major attractions are the Dali and the Chihuli (website hidden) Pete's Beach and Fort Desoto are minutes away. Dolphin cruises are a must do!
Interaction with Guests
I am always available by phone and Stephen, my local manager, is available for any on-site problems.
One thing I love about this development is that it is very quiet. It is not near any busy streets or freeways and is surrounded by a large park, a high school, and a large church complex And yet, it is within 2 miles of access to I275, the Bayway Bridge, and the majestic Sunshine Skyway Bridge. Another attraction of this neighborhood is the abundance of natural vegetation and the friendly neighbors.
You will have a reserved parking space right outside your door and there is ample guest parking. Public transportation routes are 4 blocks away in either direction. The Tampa and Sarasota airports are right on 75/275. The Tampa airport is 30 minutes away, and the Sarasota airport is 43 minutes away.The St Petersburg/Clearwater airport is also easy to get to and only 25 minutes away. Gulf beaches are only ten minutes away.
Other Things to Note
1) If you have small children, please consider whether the open stairway will be a safety issue for you. 2) There is a twin size Aero bed in the master closet if you need it. 3) When you request a reservation, please tell me about your party (adults, children, relationships, purpose of visit, any special needs or requests). 4) I have a rental agreement that I would like you to sign before confirming your reservation. This just makes certain there are no misunderstandings. I will email it to you on request. 5) Prices include 12% Florida occupancy tax. Note: other rental sites add this on after the quoted rate.
This is a respectful, quiet complex and I need to have my guests exercise the same curtesy. Of course, normal use and care of the home and furnishings is expected. Please smoke only on the patio. The association's pet policy is that only one small cat or dog (under 30#) is allowed.
A 46" high definition TV for your enjoyment. Also a blue ray player and full digital cable.
Everything about our stay was great. Right from the first interaction with Janet, to the actual staying in the apartment. Janet responded quickly to all of our questions and was available before and during our stay for any concerns we had. We were five adults traveling together and the apartment was a perfect size for us. It was very clean and very well equipped. The area around it is very quiet and we all loved the swimming pool. It's also close to a grocery store and only a short ride from the beach (the beach equipment in the apartment also made our trips to the beach easier as we could have drinks in the coolers and chairs to sit on). The apartment is very conveniently located.
I would definitely recommend Janet's apartment to everyone traveling to St. Petersburg.
Great place. Loved the swimming pool and the short drive to Pass-A-Grille beach. I would stay here again with no concerns. Great host who is wonderfully responsive and attentive to guest needs.
We had a great time staying in Janet's townhouse, would definitely recommend to all of our friends! With six people in our group, we had plenty of room and privacy if needed. The location was perfect, 10 minutes from some of the best beaches in Florida and not surrounded by tourists. A tip for anyone new to the area, make sure you bring plenty of change since there is a toll to get to all beaches and be prepared to pay for parking once you get to the beach (they take cards).
The area is BEAUTIFUL. The most important aspect of this location was that the gated community, and my group felt safe. It's really close to St. Pete beach and the community of town homes has a great pool, and it's pretty large. The house was clean and we had no issues inside. It's a really beautiful place inside and out.
The town home was perfect for our stay! We stayed in St. Petersburg because our friend was getting married on St. Pete Beach. The town home was an easy 10 minute drive away from where we needed to be for the wedding and the beach. Janet was very accommodating and easy to get a hold of by phone. She even provided us with a cooler and extra beach chairs from her personal home to accommodate everyone staying with us. The pictures are exactly what you receive and the directions/manual are easy to understand. I definitely recommend this place to others. Thanks for having us, Janet!
Janet's place was great - clean with lots of space and ideally located for our trip. With 3 young children this was the way to go rather than a hotel.
We had a great stay here! The townhouse was exactly as shown and was extremely clean with everything we needed provided, including beach chairs and towels. It was decorated nicely and the beds were all super comfy. Janet was very nice and met us at the gate and showed us around the home upon arrival. The home is an easy 15 minute drive to St Pete beach. I would definitely stay here again!
About the Host, Janet
I recently moved to Florida from Minnesota Living in Florida has been a long-time dream. I discovered St Pete a couple years ago through a vacation rental, and fell in love with the city and this area. I now have two townhomes in this development, and live in the other one.
My background is primarily in human services.. I was a county social worker for 20 years and worked in residential services for adults with cognitive challenges for another 20 years I am still employed at the latter company as a seasonal employee and plan to work in the summer when I go back to MN for some family time
I've been very busy since I came to Florida fixing up the two places, but I have found a volunteer job at the Ronald McDonald House and a part-time job delivering flower (fun!). I love exploring the area, going to the beach, and sitting on my patio with my friend and companion, Chico.
I love hosting my vacation rental, making sure everything is in order and my guests are happy. When I'm not here, my local host, Stephen will make sure everything is in order
