Welcome to our comfy abode! With you, we'll share our 3bdrm pool home located in St. Petersburg, FL. You'll sleep on a new twin-sized daybed in our front living room, which is SHARED space in our house (not a private bedroom), have use of a full bathroom, full kitchen and can even cook if you want! Living room includes TV, DVD, and an AppleTV.
Our house is located in the Meadowlawn neighborhood of St. Petersburg, a safe and quiet area. The house has two full living rooms, and the daybed is located in the living room entry area. The main living room has TV and extras for entertainment; the daybed living room does not.
We have a dog, Rio. She is a large black lab mix who believes she is a lap dog. She's very excited and welcomes (begs!) for attention! We also have a blue and gold macaw (parrot), which sometimes squawks. It can sometimes be loud enough that it’s surprising when you don't expect it. That only happens during the day; at night he's fast asleep like everyone else. :) He's friendly and likes to mingle, just want to make you aware of the potential for random squawks.
We have a large pool with comfy floats for your enjoyment! It's great for those hot Florida summer days! Outside there is also a charcoal grill, and in season, a beautiful tree that produces delicious mangos.
We are located 25 minutes from two of the best beaches in the World, ranked by the travel channel. Both Clearwater Beach and Ft. DeSoto are marvelous and you will enjoy yourself thoroughly. Those are just two of the miles and miles of beaches for you to enjoy. We're 10 minutes from downtown St. Pete, a sleepy artsy community that is thriving with a fun nightlife scene, awesome restaurants and home to the Tampa Bay Rays. In the opposite direction, we are 20 minutes from Tampa over the bridge, and at most, 30-40 minutes from most all Tampa locations, including Busch Gardens and Lowry Park Zoo, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Tampa Bay Lightning.
You can explore the Gulf Coast further south with a short 40 minute ride to Sarasota. We're approx. 90 minutes from Orlando's Disney Parks, if you don't mind the drive back and forth. We do it all the time.
The Tampa Bay area is home to some of the best restaurants you can ask for: Ceviches, Frenchy's on the Beach, Island Way Grill, Salt Rock Grill, Bern's Steak House, Hook's Sushi, Carmel Cafe. Havana Grille, Z Grille, Moon Over Water and many more. Also home to fantastic museums like the Chihuly Museum, Salvador Dali, and the Holocaust Museum. You can enjoy plenty of indoor and outdoor activities year round!
Please email with any questions; I'm glad to help plan your trip and direct you to Tampa Bay's finest joints - you'll love it here!
Non-smokers only, please. We'll provide towels, sheets and pillows. Light bathroom supplies provided (mini-sized shampoo, conditioner and soap). Washer and dryer available and parking included. You are welcome to purchase groceries and laundry supplies at the nearby stores for cooking, if you so desire. Public transportation is short (5-10 min) walk from our house.
This is our home and we live life here! You won't find an architectural digest home, nor will we pass a Ritz-Carlton white glove inspection. Instead what you will find is a great lived-in home that we love. If that is pleasing to you, please come and stay. Come and go as you please, clean up after yourself, and as your mother would say, "Use your manners!" You will have a key and are free to come and go as you please. No curfews here.
As a guest of our house, you're welcome to join us for dinner and a movie on the couch, or do your own thing. Either way, we're fine. We welcome you in our home and hope you'll make yourself at home. We're pretty social but will take the hint if you'd prefer to do your own thing!
We're busy with plans all the time, and you can join us if you like. Dinner, movies, you name it!
St. Pete is a small big city! Cozy, quaint businesses and restaurants await your company. There's a regular Saturday market and tons of independent shops that make for a great afternoon of browsing or window shopping.

I had a nice stay at Diana's place. The house is in a good neighborhood of St Petersburg - just a short drive to downtown. There is also a pool available, and Diana is very welcoming and ready to help!
