EXPLORE ST. PETE FROM THIS AMAZING, LUSH, AND RELAXING GETAWAY---- IF YOU EVER END UP LEAVING YOUR OWN PRIVATE POOL-SIDE OASIS!!!! TWO MILES FROM THE GULF OF MEXICO AND ST. PETE BEACH!
You have your own private entrance to this stunning oasis. Every where you turn there is something that draws your attention--- the sparkling blue pool, the blooming Jasmine, the dazzling and hypnotic stone waterfall, the cabana, the gazebo---something is always in bloom. Dozens of places to get some sun, read a book or snooze. The Master itself has a full bathroom with tub and shower, a deluxe king size bed that is outrageously comfortable, 600+ thread count sheets, a spectacular 50 in HD tv with HBO, a mini fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. I've got beach chairs, towels, coolers, toys--everything you need for the ocean. The location is super convenient. I'm minutes from the white sand of St. Pete Beach---only 2 miles away. Downtown Gulfport with it's funky shops, great restaurants, ARTwalk and farmer's market is a mile away. Gorgeous downtown St. Petersburg is only 7 miles away. Don't even get me started about how great downtown St. Pete is!
The entire outside area is yours to enjoy while you stay here. If you want to grill some burgers, hot dogs or fresh caught fish, feel free! Although you don't have access to a full kitchen, I'll have everything you need for a cookout ready for you including plates and utensils, cups, napkins and condiments. There's plenty of room in the fridge for anything for the cookout and of course left-overs from all the great restaurants here in town. The pool area is wired for sound so you can tap into your iTunes collection while you soak up the rays. Wifi inside and out.
Interaction with Guests
I'm a Realtor and I renovate and flip properties for a living so my schedule is flexible and I will be here to greet you on your arrival. You set the course for interaction. I'm a St. Pete enthusiast, know a lot about the city, it's history, and have AWESOME recommendations for restaurants, boat charters, bars, and neighborhoods to explore if you're interested. That being said--- I have a great respect for peace of mind and privacy so that is exactly what you will find when you stay here. Like I said-- you set the interaction.
Although this is a new listing on AirBnB-- I am not new to vacation rentals. I had over 43 five star reviews when this property was listed on another Vacation Rental site. In fact, I've helped many people who have stayed here purchase a house because they loved St. Pete so much after their visit.
The neighborhood is quiet, safe and super convenient to just about anything you want to do. You're SO close to St. Pete Beach but you're not living in beach traffic. A straight shot on a one way street with timed lights will get you to our gorgeous waterfront downtown in a flash. Technically I'm in Gulfport ( a municipality of St. Petersburg) but the houses across the street are in Pasadena ( another municipality!) and 2 blocks away the houses are in St. Pete proper. 1 mile from Publix, Winn Dixie, CVS, Starbucks, bike rentals and a great organic supermaket! Shopping? The Tyrone Square Mall is only a few minutes away. The houses in my neighborhood are older-- most built in the 50's--but there are some incredible old Mediterraneans and Mid-Century modern houses sprinkled through out the streets. The beautiful campus of Stetson Law School is just a few blocks away. I love living here!
You can park in the front driveway or you can park in your own parking space accessed through the alley--- you're choice. There are local buses as well as a trolley that goes to downtown St. Pete, Gulfport, and the gulf beaches however a car really is a necessity.
Other Things to Note
Prices do not include the cost of heating the pool. If you would like to have the pool heated we can discuss it and make arrangements.
I have a dog and a cat. My dog Kava is the sweetest thing ever but how much you interact with her is entirely up to you. She rarely barks. Seriously. The last time I heard her bark was over 2 months ago. I wouldn't say it if it wasn't true. Neither will have access to your room. From the sounds of it you probably wouldn't know I even had a dog or a cat unless I told you. But there--- I just did. :)
The cat's name is Emmett, BTW, and he's nothing short of awesome.
NO smoking inside--- outside is perfectly fine.
NO drugs inside or outside. Please and thank you.
I'm all for you enjoying yourself so please-- have a cocktail or beer while you enjoy your stay here. HOWEVER--
NO glass or beer bottles in the pool area.
PLEASE do not over-consume. It's embarrassing. And dangerous. If you cause a scene and the police come you WILL be sent packing and you will NOT get a refund. SO--- Just be cool, okay? Okay!
Please respect my neighbors. Keep the music at a respectful level. Music gets turned off by 10pm.
Check in is at 3pm and Check out is at 11am but I'm flexible unless another guest is arriving the same day. Then we gotta stick to the rules. Capisce?
Robert was welcoming from the moment we booked and upon arrival he helped us get settled and get a lay of the land. His house is located about 2 miles from Treasure Island and the gulf beaches and about 5 miles to downtown St Petersburg which is a trendy, cool area with great restaurants and nightlife. All of Robert's suggestions for places to eat and visit were on point. We had great eats and a really nice relaxing time. We would recommend this place to anyone and hope to return again soon.
Rob was a gracious host who made us feel at home immediately. He recommended excellent restaurants in nearby historic Gulfport and activities in St. Petersburg. The well appointed room was very clean and comfortable (especially the king size bed). The TV and internet service were incredible. His pets were an enhancement to the total experience. The backyard was truly a restful retreat. We totally enjoyed our time at Rob's place and would recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet, tranquil, and comfortable place in the sun.
A little piece of paradise! Clean and comfortable environment …Close to beaches, shopping, the comfort like staying at the Marriot Hotel, without being in a hotel. Robert is a wonderful host. I would recommend to anyone this vacation rental.
Behind the wooden gate was an enticing oasis. Robert has created clean and inviting accommodations, quiet, comfortable, safe and so close to the Gulfport waterfront! I was totally comfortable with a luxuriously made up bed, bath supplies, coffee, and kitchen type amenities.
There were strong winds and chill the weekend I was there unfortunately, because the outdoor space at Robert's place was so attractive, I wanted to be out there enjoying it!
Robert is a great host, very responsive to inquiries, attentive but not imposing. I would definitely stay here again
Rob was super friendly and not intrusive at all. His dog is very friendly and cute. The room was clean and comfortable. The amenities are nice and Rob supplied everything we needed for a grill out. Would recommend.
Rob was both accommodating and friendly. His dog and cat were very well behaved and friendly, and the back yard, room and home were gorgeous. He was quick to introduce himself, helped us find locales to eat and explore, and even gave directions and checked in to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. On new years he also left us some wine glasses, a very considerate touch. It was an amazing stay, we would definitely repeat.
What a Spot!!! Robert, The Owner, called us the day of our arrival to ensure we made it safely. Lush, Tranquil, Serene, comfortable room with a stunning view to the pool. The proximity to Gulfport and Downtown is outstanding. This was our very first and most excellent Airbnb stay. Robert is fantastic and we all loved Cava the dog and mr. Emmet the cat! It was so nice to stay with Robert next time we come to the east coast we will come first to the west to stay with Robert. Wish we could have stayed a week!
