The stay in this place was the worse i have ever experienced. I am a tennis player that has traveled all over the world (not asking for much, just comfort, a place to rest and to feel welcome) and i have to say that i have never experienced anything like this.
Don't expect much because you wont get it, what is advertise in the web side is not really given, like the TV (is only in the living room and only use by the "host")
The host is not really him (is his mother)
never replay to my message when there were issues.
There is only one AC unit for the whole place and once again was only manage by the host (sarasota can get very warm at night, which you need AC to be able to have a nice night of sleep)
The bed was way too small if you are two people planning to make the trip
The address listed in the ad is not the actual location of the apartment.
The place is clean, not modern but clean.
But for the price you are paying is better if you can find something else for that price, in other words the place is not worth it for what you are paying.
Positives: My family enjoyed visiting St. Petersburg in April - great weather. The size of Christian's place was perfect for us (family of 4). Christian was very accessible and returned all contact promptly. The pool in the complex was fantastic (heated) and the canal to the bay was very nice and offered good fishing off the dock just outside the back door.
Negatives: The 2nd bedroom's futon was not comfortable. The room could use a real bed. Unfortunately, the place was a bit of a drive to the beach and to good dining options (St. Pete Beach). The apartment could have been cleaner - and the fridge really should have been empty so that we had more room for our food. The kitchen wasn't stocked too well for true cooking, but we made due.
Overall, we had a good time and enjoyed our stay.
I booked with Christian a day in advance and he was very accommodating in putting everything together so last minute. The apartment was great. Located just a few miles outside of downtown St Pete, it's a very direct and easy commute to get to and from the heart of all the action. Easy parking, a comfortable living room for watching TV and a great terrace overlooking a canal was great for morning coffee - especially when I knew it was snowing at home. Christian was easy to communicate with and ensured that we had all we needed. I would highly recommend this as a home base while in St Pete.
Nice accommodation at a reasonable price. The location was good for us as we were working nearby. Would stay again if in the area.
Great two-bedroom apartment sitting right on the water of a gated community. Although I didn't take advantage of all the amenities, the apartment and community had all that you could ask for: pool, fitness center, outdoor sports on site, wifi, Roku, waterfront patio, gaming system. Arrangements and check-in/check-out was very easy. Thanks Christian!
Being right on the water is great. The apartment is very nice and has plenty of space and a big deck out back. Loved the big TV and Roku player. The gated community is very nice as well with a pool, tennis courts, yacht club, etc. Christian was easy to work with and getting the key was easy. There are a few areas for improvement. The bathroom could use some cleaning up. There were no sheets for the bed in the 2nd bedroom and we didn't get them until the 2nd day. There is a french press for coffee, but no coffee maker.
Christian's apartment was great and we felt very welcome. Facilities within the complex were nice too-pool, tennis court and gym. Thank you!
Christian undersells this property. It is gorgeous and we would definitely visit again. The house was clean with all mod cons. We went to the Yacht Club twice which was only a 5 minute walk and had delicious food and drinks for very good value. Happy hours from 5 to 7pm on Mondays and Tuesdays were great. Pulled pork sliders 2 for $1 and then the following night Beef Taco's 2 for $1. The drinks were cheap too. We enjoyed the heated pool on the waters edge and saw dolphins every night. Excellent location for the more mature couple. Whole community beautifully maintained with stunning gardens. Christian is a very relaxed and hospitable host.
I would highly recommend Christian's condo. The patio is filled with morning and afternoon sun and the onsite pool is heated. The condo is 20 minutes away from St. Pete beach and about 10-15 minutes away from downtown. You will definitely need a car to get to nearby attractions. Christian is a great host and made himself available.
The Apt was dirty. Carpets were dirty. Bathrooms and kitchen were not very clean. Was not prepared with clean towels. Sheets had stains on them. The apt had not been cleaned. Furnishings were old and many of them broken. I stayed for several weeks and there was no place to lay out clothes. No dressers, although there were big closets and places to hang things. Condo was in bad shape but the condo complex itself is nice. Nice pool and area. Close to many biking trails. Second floor. If you bike, no place to put bike downstairs so you have to carry it up stairs and store on balcony. Balcony overlooks parking lot so no nice place to get outside and enjoy Florida sunshine. Christian was nice. He was helpful. Air system did not work and he replaced the thermostat. He did not seem to understand what preparations were needed in order to rent his place. I would not rent here again.
A wonderful, polite guest....we had travel stories to share.
The room was in great shape, and my roomate very much enjoyed his stay.
Christian's mother stayed at my place. She was as quiet as a mouse, respectful and a pleasure to chat with about different cultures and stuff. Recommend and welcome back anytime!
Christian was one of the most kind guest I had.
Very practice, he reserved a couple of days before, he arrived, he spent his days without problems. The appartment was very clean, absolutelly in order.
Sorry only for my internet connexion. It didn't work as well as he waited.
I change the provider Christian. And you are always wellcome/
I have known Christian for many years now and as well as recommending him as an honest and genuine person, I have seen the quality of several of his properties and can recommend them with confidence as a great place to stay. Christian has a keen eye for detail and understands very well the importance of well appointed living spaces.
