The Space

A beautiful 2 bedroom (one queen bed, one double bed), 1 bathroom home in the historic Old Northeast neighborhood in downtown St Petersburg. Originally built in 1925 but completely remodelled and updated in 2005, maintaining the unique character of this charming neighborhood. Large living room/dining room, fully-equipped kitchen, office, laundry. Large garden and secluded outdoor patio area. Laundry, wireless/wired internet access, television/satellite/DVR/DVD, air conditioning.

Five minute stroll to Coffee Pot Bayou, great for biking, walking, or running along the Florida waterway with good chances of seeing dolphins, manatees, rays and plenty of bird life. A short drive to some of the best beaches in the world (Ft De Soto, Clearwater, Siesta Key...all named best beaches in recent years by (website hidden)). Many options for golf, tennis, biking, kayaking and other water sports. Close to the bustling waterfront restaurants and shops and St Petersburg Pier. Just a 20 minute drive across the bay to Tampa and less than 90 minutes door-to-door from my house to Disneyworld, Universal Studios and other Orlando attractions.

  • We had a great week staying in Lyn's adorable house. Everything was spotlessly clean. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything needed to cook "at home". House is in a great location. Loved having laundry in the house!
    Lyn was accessible and helpful. Super organized in providing directions and tips to cover all our needs.
    Would definitely recommend staying here.

  • If you want to clean Lyns House as well as you never have been there, and you want to pay also for your cleaning
    than you will be the perfect guest for her perfect house.

    In this pefect house wasn't everything perfect, but were on holydays, and we would never think about this like Lyn who wrote that we left her house not in clean and tidy situation which is absolutly incorrect .

    her critic reduced our holiday feeling in Florida a lot

    Response from Lyn:

    I simply stated the fact that the house was not left in the same clean and tidy way as all the many other very happy guests have left it in the past. I'm sorry you felt the need to change your previously positive review after that. Still, I wish you happy travels in the future.

  • Lyn was immediately responsive, easy to work with, and we felt lucky that she shared her house with us. Everything was very clean, organized, and made our stay a breeze. The location couldn't be better - just a couple of minutes' stroll to coffeepot bayou and a fantastic waterfront park. Restaurants, stores, and all of downtown were all within walking or less than 5 minute drive away. We'd stay again in a heartbeat.

  • We highly recommend the Great Florida Getaway in St Pete. Lyn's place is so conveniently close to downtown on Coffee Pot Bayou and we felt safe and comfortable. I fell in love with St. Pete, Tampa Bay, and Pass A Grille while exploring the area. Wow! What a lot of COOL going on in St. Pete! Can't wait to come back and explore the Central Ave Tropicana Field arts district.

  • Renting from Lyn was a pleasure. She was very easy to contact and made the process painless. The house met and exceeded our expectations. It was well-equipped for someone who likes to cook and comfortable for our two-month stay. Someone met us at the house to familiarize us with everything and was accessible once when we needed assistance. Lyn was in contact by e-mail when I reached out just to provide an update - all went exceedingly well. The neighborhood is very quiet although located right off busy 4th St. N. and close to super markets and restaurants. Neighbors were very friendly. I would recommend this house as a good rental that is accessible to supermarkets, shopping and restaurants. It truly was a great Florida getaway!

  • Great Place! Lyn has all the details covered...very accommodating and friendly. Very homey feeling and beautiful floors! The only thing i wish we had done differently was rent more bikes. (Lyn has one available) It's really close to trail by the bay area. Close to grocery stores, ice cream, bus stops etc. Overall a great experience and highly recommended!

  • We spent 2 weeks in Lyn's house in December. We wish we could have stayed longer. The house is quiet and comfortable for 2-3 people. If you want to be close to downtown St. Petersburg, it's perfectly located-- about a block and a half from the running/walking/biking trail that goes right downtown. Good grocery stores are within walking distance. And, of course it didn't hurt that the weather was spectacular!

  • Lyn's place is so quaint and the location is super central to Tampa, St Petersburg downtown and the beaches. The house is roomy, fully equipped and has lots of character - a nice mix of old and modern. Lyn gave us very detailed information about where to find and how to work things in the house. She also gave us tips about where to shop and dine and all of her suggestions were fab. We had a great stay at Lyn's!

  • We had a wonderful time. Lyn's charming house is beautifully restored and has it's original 1920's charm while updated with all of the modern amenities . We couldn't have picked a better place to stay in order to vacation in old St. Pete near all of the great attractions in Florida's gulf coast region.

  • We had a wonderful holiday in Lyn's house. Perfectly located in the Old Northeast neighborhood and just a short walk to the boardwalk. The house was perfect for two couples - nicely furnished and close to many restaurants and markets.
