The space

Private apartment above a garage in a lushly landscaped yard. Queen bed, vaulted ceilings, walk-in shower, gorgeous built-in maple cabinetry, recessed lighting, mini-kitchen including counter-height fridge, microwave, toaster oven, hotplate and coffee maker. Not a full kitchen. Gleaming cherry floors. Flat-screen TV, cable, CD/DVD, wi-fi, pool and hot tub, laundry. Koi pond with waterfall lulls you to sleep. Private parking. I have bikes for you to use to explore the waterfront or downtown. Friendly dog and two cats share the fenced triple lot. There are sitting areas for you by the pond and pool. High-end but homey, great for a romantic getaway or a business traveller. You can be close to everything but in a safe, pretty neighborhood. The neighborhood is called Old Northeast and it's the main waterfront historic district, with many houses built in the 20's and 30's, brick streets, granite curbs and mature trees. It's only 2 blocks to the waterfront from here. You can bike right downtown and see dolphins and manatees on the way. Come visit my jungle!

This apartment is behind our home so I just would request respect for our property and that of the neighbors. I live here with my two teenage kids. We are happy to share our yard, and there's a lot of it. Drive carefully, generally behave yourselves, no nudity in the yard and no smoking please.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sidney's place. The apartment was clean, welcoming and very modern. It is very close to multiple grocery stores, restaurants and attractions. Our entrance was very private and we could come and go as we pleased, not fearful of causing any disturbance. The koi pond and "jungle-like" atmosphere truly makes you feel that you are in an exotic location. We would absolutely recommend this stay to friends, and look forward to booking again!

Her place was absolutely amazing. Exactly as described and the Jungle aspect of it was gorgeous. Inside the Airbnb was exactly what we needed for my girlfriend and I. We thought the place was a perfect getaway for two. We aren't the type of people who stay in the place we rent a lot but if we did this place has a hot tub and pool which we didn't try due to the unfortunate weather but that's what we would try. Everything we needed was provided for. The most important part of our stay was how safe we felt inside her property and in her neighborhood. It is nice knowing we were on her property behind the fence. We could go down to the common area (the outside aka Jungle, pool and hot tub) and feel welcome. I know I saw in another review someone mentioned she needed chairs inside. There are two or three chairs inside!! Also it might seem confusing at first but the alleyway is in between the two streets where her house is located. It makes tons of sense and is so easy for check in & out. If we are ever in St. Pete again. I know we will definitely stay there again if it's available if we don't want to try out a different place.

The guesthouse is well-equipped and the surrounding gardens, fountains, and pool create a very serene setting. Looking out the two walls of windows, I felt like I was in a treehouse! I was in town with a packed business schedule, and coming back to this secluded jungle at night was very relaxing. Didn't meet Sidney in person but she was accomodating in her messages and responded quickly. Would stay again.
