I will stay here again.
Michael was a very accommodating host allowing flexibility in our check-in/out times. The Bungalow amenities were as described and the Bungalow much more spacious than I was expecting. The Bungalow was in a charming community situated close to all of the activities our group was interested in. Wished I could have stayed longer and would definitely stay again if I get to return to the area.
The bungalow is very charming. Unlike usual airbnb experiences, we had the entire house to ourselves. This was especially nice when we had some rainy weather. The location was excellent in a good neighborhood. We have a large van and there was convenient parking off an alley in the rear of the home. Mike and CeCe provided us with everything we needed, and for coffee lovers, the beans and grinder were terrific! We tried many of their suggestions for food like Cappy's pizza and Mazarro's Italian market, both recommended by us as well.
For the 2013 New Year's holiday, we came to St. Petersburg to visit the museums, restaurants, and galleries. We also took our grandson and his parents to Busch Gardens for a few visits.
Michael and CeCe's bungalow was perfect for our stay. Located in a quiet, historic neighborhood. it was clean, well-appointed, and wonderfully restored. The pleasant front porch may be seen in the photo; what is not seen is the nice, secluded patio and back yard, and a side yard with its portable gas grill. Inside the home is a spacious living room, a dining area, and a kitchen (check out that pressed tin ceiling!) with two eating areas. One bedroom has been adapted for an entertainment room as well as a sleeping room, and two additional bedrooms are cozy and quiet.
Michael and CeCe were warm and neighborly hosts, with good suggestions for getting around the city and its favorite spots. We all gave five-star ratings to this home away from home!
This is a fantastic house in a great neighborhood. The hosts are attentive and accommodating. Perfect experience at a fabulous price!
Michael and CeCe are great hosts. The bungalow is well kept, the kitchen completely equipped, everything nicely and festively decorated - we (family with 3 teenagers) immediately felt at home. It is located in a nice area of town - old historic Kenwood with brick layered roads and houses built in the 20's and 30's. Grocery stores and other amenities are around the corner.
We had a wonderful historic bungalow all to ourselves. It could not be any better, we enjoyed every minute of our stay.
We highly recommend Michael and CeCe´s place to anybody who want to have a good time in St. Pete.

The bungalow was great! Michael was a great host. We arrived very late, but that was no problem for him to meet us with the keys. We truly enjoyed coming "home" every night to something that was alot more than just a motel room. We were out all day every day of our stay, but it was nice to be able to relax and watch TV, prepare breakfast or a snack in the kitchen, or just spend time on the provided wireless internet. If we return to the area,we will definitely try to stay here again!
My stay at the bungalow was fantastic. Michael was a gracious and responsive host and was kind enough to let my family check in early on Thanksgiving day. The house was clean and comfortable and truly felt like a home a way from home. My family and I basically hung out in the house and walked the neighborhood most of the time. The kitchen was spacious and easy to use and the washer/dryer was a gift to have in the house especially with a new born and toddler. The beds were comfortable and we started each day well rested. The back yard was simple, sunny and warm. The front porch was breezy and relaxing. The location was also excellent. Our family walked all around the neighborhood taking in the array of architecture and landscape design. There is also a great park a few blocks down to play with the children. The location could not have been better - easy access to/from the air port, walking distance to Central Ave with it's shops and restaurants and a quick drive to the beach. If you want a great place at a great rate that is kid/family friendly look no further.
Really great house with easy to work with owners... in a super convenient spot... The kids loved chasing lizards in the Yard, and we had a great time kicking back on the front porch. Way better than a hotel for sure!
Michael and Cece were delightful guests - clean, quiet and considerate. They're welcome back any time!
