We4 had a great time in St Pete. We stayed for four weeks and t his place feels like home to us already. We have enjoyed the beaches, (mostly Pass a Grille) nuseuns, restaurants and a trip to Disney for the kids. Our apartment provided us with everything we needed. Thanks for the hospitality. Hope to see you again one day.
My wife and I stayed with our chocolate lab during the last week of 2014.
We found the property to fit our needs and the owners to be easy to work with.
Close enough to walk to downtown attractions and convenient to drive to area beaches.
We stayed in #1 and everything was wonderful. The unit was very clean and updated. Loved the front porch and how easy it was to walk to everything. The kitchen is small but very well equipped.
I got to stay in a newly renovated one bed room apartment. The décor was lovely and it was obvious that all furnishings were chosen with care. Retro kitchen with red highlights was perfect. Front porch for sipping coffee and lovely back yard for sipping wine. Winnie and Jim are perfect hosts and truly make one feel at home. I love the location! 2 blocks from groceries, drug store, and hair salon! 4 blocks to the amazing downtown that is the heart of St. Pete and the Dali Museum. This is the second time I've stayed in these apartments/cottages, and as I said in my first review--I will never stay anywhere else in St. Petersburg. Because it was brand new rental there were a couple of small glitches that were solved immediately. A suggestion: please have instructions for remote control. I was generally mystified by it.
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.
I really loved my 1 bedroom apartment, I stayed in #5 and it was very clean when I arrived. It's really comfortable and the location is great! I would definitely stay here again! Feels like home.
Mrs Winnie was very pleasant and easy to talk to.
Thank You Belinda
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!

These apartments are within walking distance of downtown, shopping, the arts. theater, beach, beautiful parks, restaurants. bus line, trolley line, easy access to I-275 and St. Petersburg Beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. The Pinellas Trail is easy access with miles of biking trails. There are bike lanes over most of the downtown area as well as outlying areas. A car is not necessary for St Petersburg proper but is necessary to go to DisneyWorld and other attractions. We have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Golf: There are numerous 18 hole and 9 hole par 3 golf courses close by. Deep sea fishing is a favorite. Plus flats fishing and we recommend Greg Dougherty.
