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!

  • Such a wonderful spot - peaceful, private, and relaxing! Sidney is an excellent host and had lots of helpful information about the area. Can't wait to go back for another visit!

  • This was the perfect home base for the two of us. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The yard was beautiful and the neighborhood is great. We had a place to park our car and we had a private entrance. During a hectic week in the St Pete area, it was nice to return to this comfortable peaceful setting. The waterfront area and downtown were easily accessible by a short bike ride along the trail with many restaurants and groceries close by. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Ringo and Ray were good company(dog and cat) as well.

  • Sidney's studio was really lovely...and the surrounding backyard is quite lush and picturesque. The long weekend was so relaxing and peaceful...just what we needed to escape the chaos of Miami for a bit. Great location -- easy to get around, even in the rain. Sidney was great, just met her briefly, and we had everything we needed in studio. Very comfortable. Would recommend Sidney's studio to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway!

  • Sidney's luxury studio in a jungle was just that! It was fantastic. The pictures are accurate yet don't fully convey the relaxed Florida feel of her place. Sidney was laid back yet responsive and friendly. We felt at home the minute we arrived. My partner and I were in need of a beautiful, laid back yet well appointed place and this could not have been better. We are already looking at the calendar for our next stay with Sidney!

  • My stay with Sidney was great. There was a place in the back to park my car. The place is clean. I was able to use the BBQ and make some steaks. Sidney was always available to answer any questions. She has 2 lovely kids as well.

    Thanks Sidney

  • We were looking for the perfect place to celebrate our important holidays and to just escape --- and we certainly found it here! Sidney, her charming youngsters (and the creatures)
    were amazing hosts giving us the perfect combination of welcome, warmth and privacy. We loved getting to know them and being given the feeling of independence and freedom to just enjoy our time to the fullest.

    Her home is beautiful and indeed charming, comfortable and relaxing. The slice of paradise is just quiet enough, but still with lots nearby to do. Her suggestions for activities were very good.
    We spent some days on a perfect beach, ate, rested and shopped a lot-lot-lot... This place is definitely worth a visit and the description is just correct. We especially enjoyed the garden's nature sounds and the soothing whisper of the little waterfall AND purring catty wishing us a good day each and every morning.
    The shower is a great and fun experience and we also very much appreciated the food and drink basics waiting for us in the fridge.
    It has also to be mentioned that we happily used the TV sound system with an exquisite and rather large selection of fine CDs.

    Thanks again Sidney, the only reason we would not recommend you to others is so that we could selfishly be sure there are vacancies for us again later!

  • I loved my 3 month stay at Sidney's place. Everything was perfect when I arrived and Sidney made me feel right at home. The location is my absolute favorite when living in St Pete, you cannot beat the neighborhood feel of Old Northeast. I highly recommend her place and would stay here again in the future. The place is an absolute delight!
