About this listing
Our eclectic and inviting home is comfy and quiet but only minutes from the restaurants, breweries, and vintage shops of the Grand Central District. Only eight miles to top rated St. Pete Beach!
Step through original French doors to your private, natural light-filled parlor with desk and pull-out love seat—perfect for a workspace or reading. Continue on to your private bedroom with luxurious new euro top queen bed, with empty closet and dresser for storing your things. Private bathroom is adjacent with tub and shower, pedestal sink, fresh towels, and plenty of natural light.
Guests will have access to our shared living areas, full kitchen, washer/dryer, and bicycles. Feel free to use our gas BBQ out back, also.
Interaction with Guests
We can offer as much or as little interaction as you like. Our two dogs Emma and Bunny would love to meet and spend time with you, but we can keep them away if you prefer. We're happy to suggest our favorite brewery or restaurant, as well as tips for getting around town.
Located just west of downtown St. Petersburg, Historic Kenwood is a charming neighborhood filled with historic bungalows and tree-lined brick streets. We relocated here from the northeast because of the artistic charm and diversity of the neighborhood—and the weather doesn't hurt, (website hidden) Pete is quickly becoming craft beer central—four microbreweries within two miles! The Saturday morning market is a great place to spend a morning, have breakfast (and lunch!), stock up on fresh produce for the week, and hear live music. Catch a Rays game at Tropicana field, only minutes away. Mazzaro's—look it up! This Italian market will blow your mind with everything from incredible coffee to imported prosciutto, and is only two minutes away. The local YMCA is only a few blocks from the house and offers inexpensive day passes so you can work out, take a yoga class, or swim in an indoor pool.
The bus station is just a few blocks away, but frankly we haven't taken much advantage of it. The beach is a 15 minute drive, downtown is 5 minutes by car or 10 by bike. Restaurants, coffee shops, breweries, and shopping all within 5 minutes. You'll have a pair of vintage Schwinn bikes at your disposal to cruise downtown.
Other Things to Note
Check out our other listing to enjoy the entire house to yourselves! Perfect for a group or family getaway.
We simply ask that you treat our home as you would treat yours. Dogs welcome, sorry no cats (we're allergic). This is a smoke free home.
Walk through original French doors into your private parlor! Great for reading, working, or relaxing. Nice and bright and looks out into the palm trees in the front yard.
Kim was very polite and a great host! The house was beautiful(exactly like the pictures) and the space was extremely comfortable. It was such a pleasant experience. I can't wait to book with Kim again.
Kim has a natural ability to put people at ease and make them feel welcome. It seems as if she's been in the B&B industry for many years given her kindness and hospitality.
The guest wing is incredibly inviting and comfortable and the entire home is just adorable.
My stay was brief (only one night arriving late and leaving early for business), but I would highly recommend staying there to anyone.
Kim made me feel right at home, and had many great suggestions for places to eat and things to do. She provided the perfect balance of privacy and interaction. The room was beautiful, clean, and comfortable with plenty of amenities. I truly enjoyed my time there, and would easily book this listing again in the future, or recommend it to any family or friends.
Kim and Mike were perfect hosts and went out of their way to make our stay with them relaxing and enjoyable (breakfast and special coffee in the morning, goodies at arrival time, access to kitchen...) The space provided to us went beyond the basic bedroom and was very welcome, and they were able to offer just the right combination of friendliness and privacy. Their pets were quiet and well-behaved, and not at all an issue. Of course everything was clean and comfortable, and the basic necessities (bath accessories etc.) all provided for. We expect that we will stay with them again (if they will have us) on our next visit to St. Petersburg.
We connected right away with Kim and Michael as we are all from New Jersey. They were fun and helpful with advice and we adored their two small dogs. The house is impeccably kept, design conscious and interesting. The bedroom is on the small side but the adjacent private sitting room adds a lot to the space. The bathroom is right next to the bedroom off a private corridor. Tasteful selection of all the decor and linens etc.
Kim and Mike are fabulous hosts! They so kindly welcomed me into their beyond beautiful home, making sure I had everything I needed! The bedroom, private sitting area, and private bathroom were all just perfect! The bed was very comfortable and the sitting area off of the bedroom was a wonderful place to relax. Their home is in the beautiful, quiet, historic Kenwood neighborhood and so convenient to anything you would want to see or do in St Pete! I am looking forward to staying again next time I find myself in the area!
