Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Apt. 5 for 10 days while in town for our daughter's surgery and recovery and couldn't have chosen a better place! The apt. is charming, clean and well-maintained and was perfect for our needs and we loved the location. We walked to many places - the Farmer's Market, Central Arts District Art Walk, grocery store, doctor's appointments, coffee shop, restaurants, etc. We had a fabulous dinner at Rococo's (Jim's recommendation and boy was it great!), a restaurant on the next block, and were also delighted to discover Haslam's Book Store.
We expect to return to St. Petersburg many times over the next couple of years and hope to stay here for as many visits as possible!
Thank you, Winnie and Jim, for your hospitality and for a great home away from home.

Comfy place, Great location

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time staying in St. Pete, and this apartment couldn't have been a better choice. The location is perfect - you can walk to museums, galleries, great restaurants, stores, waterfront. The apartment is small but just the right size for a couple. Everything was very clean and well-stocked when we arrived. There are porches in the front and back for a relaxed cup of coffee or evening cocktail. Jim and Winnie were very nice and respectful of our needs. Can't say enough favorable about this property!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Rob for your kind words. The unit, #6, that you were in is the smallest of the three offered. Jim has refurbished it, as well as the other 3, from stem to stern with the space he had to work with in a darling apartment just right for 2. The whole property was rescued by him and saved from the wrecking bar years ago and it's just begiinning to come into it's own with upgrades and upgrooms and beginning to shine brightly. We are proud of what we have to offer to vacation renters as well as full time in downtown St Pete that is so different than what people expect. Just good old Yankee converts with a down home style in the middle of a booming city. Having a great time doing iit. :O)

Close to everything

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in this delightful little apartment. It was as advertised, very neat and clean and comfortable, and just the right size for 2 adults. Everything worked and we had no problems with anything. The location is terrific, very easy access to I-175/275, walking distance to grocery store and pharmacy as well as to Central/downtown with many different restaurants, shops and cinema, easy driving to Bay and parks for walking, fishing, biking or relaxing or to Fort DeSoto or St Pete beaches. Bikes are available for use. The washer/dryer on grounds is handy but the site doesn't make clear that you have to pay for both. Loved listening to the little fountain/pond in the courtyard. Heard more police/fire/ambulance sirens than yowling cats. Winnie and Jim were easy to work with. We would recommend this to other singles or couples, not sure that it would be comfortable for more than 2 because of the size.

Great place to stay!

We stayed in one of the duplexes. It was very clean, nicely redecorated. Owners were attentive. Parking was close and easily accessible. It was close to the bay, downtown, nice area to take walks. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We are putting another rental on the vacation site as soon as Jum does repair work and I get it furnished. We had to turn so many away due to 'no room at the inn'. Landscaping is coming along well. Outside tables and chairs, new grill and bicycles have been added.

Pleasant and clean, no hotel needed

  • 5 of 5
We (2 adults) stayed in the cottage apt for a week during the St Pete Boat Show - we are vendors. Very, very clean and newly updated. We bring in food to make breakfasts and generally pick up take out for dinners, so the kitchen is important. This had everything we needed in a pleasant garden setting. Parking is on the street, but we never had a problem. Lot's of resturants and a grocery within easy walking distance, plus the museum, the sailing center and shopping - and the boat show.
