Thanks! Love (website hidden) Translate-- here's the above reference in English!
Mary is a very pleasant hostess. The apartment is always very tidy and clean. It has also a separate wc. It is located downtown very central. Can only recommend it. Love greetings and thanks for the hospitality
Excellent: clean, neat and orderly plus made to feel very welcome. Privacy respected, but friendly, close to the water, also could walk to Fresh Market. Close to great historic district, gorgeous real estate and wonderful location. Use of frig and private coffee maker a plus, stocked with little samples of everything for the bath; plus much info from tourist publications at your disposal. Will be back and I hope sooner than later.
Nice clean house, relaxed host, great location.
Greeted us on time. Very welcoming and accommodating. Respected our privacy. Would visit again. Highly recommend! Thanks, Mary.
Mary is truly Hostess with the "Mostest"! I arrived very late and called ahead to make sure I would not cause undue stress. Mary was very accommodating and worked with me to get me to her home in good time! Her rules were easy for me to abide by because she herself is very neat, clean, and orderly. Loved the stay! As my first time in this venue, I will be a returning customer time and again in the future. Staying with in a friendly environment made what was not going to be a vacation (visiting my elderly father in his late years of life in a new assisted living facility) into a pleasant and enjoyable stay. Thankfully, I was able to extend my stay to visit my father. It was great and without equal! I recommend Mary's Sparkling Heart of Coffee Pot Bayou as a most exceptional value!
Mary's place was perfect! She was easy to get in touch with to set up my arrival time & super friendly & welcoming once I got there. The room & bathroom were amazing & spacious. So many mirrors...a plus for me!
She was such a great host, leaving small toiletries & city pamphlets out which made the experience feel so simple. The location was great also—close to everything in St Pete.
I would definitely recommend staying at Mary's place.
mary was a great hostess and the place was a gem! beautiful neighborhood to walk around in.
Booked last minute for my family who came in to take care of me after surgery. Mary is my neighbor, and made my grandmother and father feel at home. They told me that during their stay Mary made them feel comfortable and enjoyed her company. My family will most certainly want to stay again during one of visits.
Mary was my second experience with airbnb in two weeks. Communication with her during the booking process and then during my stay could not have been better. I very much enjoyed my week there. The room and house is exactly as protrayed and very clean and comfortable. I could not have hoped for a better location to explore the area. A few minutes from Mary's house is Coffee Pot Bayou and walking the winding sidewalk that leads to beaches , parks and downtown St. Pete you will experience the beauty of the area along with other walkers, joggers and bicyclists and local wildlife, and if you are lucky, manatees. I was that lucky.
Mary is the kind of person and host that i can only hope to meet during my future travels. Friendly, outgoing and helpful are just a few words that describe her. I highly recommend a stay with Mary.
Magnifique maison coquette, propre et confortable!
Mary est une personne dynamique, joyeuse et accueillante.
Son logement est très bien situé et correspond à l'annonce et aux photos.
On recommande vivement cette adresse à toute personne souhaitant séjourner à St Pet!
