About Michelle or BJ

Enjoys living in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Michelle or BJ purchased this house in 2006

Why Michelle or BJ chose St Petersburg

The house belonged to a friend who created each detail with care and usually by hand. For example, there are columns with parrots on them - these were first carved out in wood and later poured concrete created these amazing columns that surround the courtyard. The tile wall outside was designed by an artist friend of the owner at the time. The kitchen has a wall/window in order to view the outside world while in this space. Each room has a view and the details go on and on. These details create great harmony in this comfortable home. The home is 5 minutes away from Albert Whitted Airport - 5 minutes to downtown (galleries, shopping, museums, bars and restaurants...) - 10 minutes to Tropicana Field - 1 block walk to a small beach and waterfront park.

What makes this house unique

This home is not only located near downtown St. Pete but you can take a daily walk on the beachfront park. There is a private outdoor shower surrounded by plants were you can enjoy the feeling of outdoor bathing in privacy. If showers aren't for you, you have a Jacuzzi tub that will melt your day away. Please, take a look at the pictures in order to understand the uniqueness of this rental property.

Idyllic Escape

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at "our" St Pete house three different times now. An idyllic escape just a short drive from downtown, It’s so relaxing just being there.

We love the outdoor shower and the jetted tub, perfect for soaking in at the end of the day. The whole house is a perfect example of indoor-outdoor living. You feel surrounded by the nature outdoors, even in summer when it’s too hot to actually spend a lot of time there.

Beautiful and interesting tile is throughout the house, looks like whoever lived there installed it. Also carved wood inlays in the cabinets and in the furniture throughout suggest an arts and crafts/global motif.

Even though we have never met, I think BJ is fantastic, always helpful and thorough.

Amazingly refreshing, we feel recharged every time we return. :)

Excellent accommodations

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at 155 18th Street SE with another couple. The four of us found the house to be incredibly comfortable and very well appointed. There wasn't a need that fell through the cracks all the way down to the complimentary can of Folger's Morning Blend coffee. Although difficult due to the incredible Tampa Bay food scene, we "cooked in" two of the nights we were there. To accentuate the food we cooked and the wine bought, the atmosphere was classy and superb all the way down to the china and the candle light. The surrounding neighborhood is beautiful and historic with impeccably restored Craftsman and Victorian homes. Except for Florida's ever elusive mosquitoes, our walks were romantic among the nostalgic brick streets. The house's close proximity to everything allowed us to walk to the Dali Museum, Lassing Park, shops and fine restaurants in the downtown area. We also were mere minutes to the I-175 on-ramp to everywhere. We can't wait to book our next trip to old St. Pete and stay in our home away from home on 18th Avenue SE.

Nice relaxing getaway home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed this nice home. The pictures on the rental home's website do not show how much room this house has. It is very spacious and open. All the rooms have sliding glass doors to private patios and plenty of nature. The house is totally fenced with privacy fences so even though you have neighbors, you don't know you do. The rental company has stocked the house with everything you need, just bring your clothes, meds, and toothbrush. The downtown shopping, museums, dining, book stores, groceries, local attractions, and nightlife are just down the street. Some of America's top beaches and beach attractions are about 20 minutes away on a scenic drive. Busch Gardens and Adventure Islands waterpark are another 20 minutes away in Tampa on another beautiful route where you drive over the bay. There are also several aquariums and Lowry Zoo within 20 minutes or less as well. We wanted to feel like we were at home on this vacation and not part of the hussle and bussel and this was perfect for that. We enjoyed seeing all the antiques in the house, and enjoyed the nice book collection. I think my husband and sons loved the outdoor shower most of all while I enjoyed the jacuzzi tub. We've stayed in vacation villas before in Orlando several times and loved it but after staying here, renting a private home is the way to go. After visiting St. Petersburg, and its mix of sophisticated, relaxed, bohemian, artisan, key west beach community feel, we'd loved to live here. Btw, BJ is great to work with. She is very friendly and helpful whenever I needed anything.

Relaxed and Refreshed

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to find an immaculately clean and well appointed home away from home. We were immediately comfortable and everything we needed was close at hand. Enjoying coffee in the fountain courtyard is delightful. Walking to Lassing Park (1 block away) is a treat. We loved watching the many birds (parrots, pelicans, herons to name a few), kiteboarders and other activities. The homeowner was also immediately responsive (via e-mail) when we had questions about parking in town, and other incidentals. You will not be disappointed.

St Petersburg Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home is a wonderful escape from hustle and bustle of the City. There was three of us traveling together all adult single women. The home was lovely. The neighborhood was quiet and we had no problems at all. The home is clean, the kitchen well appointed with an amazing amount of cookware with 2 sinks It was great to have an office with easy internet access for our laptop. .We all highly recommend this home for anyone anticipating a great nights sleep and a wonderful home to feel comfortable in.

Private and a perfect location - One of the best weeks we've had on a vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the week of June 21. My father, sister, niece, and myself. The property was as described and very accommodating. We really liked the seclusion once you are inside the house. I am keeping this on my list for my next visit to St. Petersburg. The location was very convenient to the downtown area, The Pier, shopping, and to the beaches. We visited the park and beach one block from the house many times. Very nice neighborhood and surroundings. The house has everything anyone would need. I recommend visiting Fort DeSoto beach. The history is interesting and it has one of the best beaches around. We did the St. Petersburg Ghost Tour - that is a lot of fun. The Pier has many shops, a food court and restaurants. Shopping in downtown St. Pete is fun, too.

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. It is all and more as described in the web site.
