Hi! I've lived in Florida for the past 14 years having moved here from Newport, RI. I graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelor's of Science in Consumer Affairs. I've worked in Real Estate, Social Services and Staffing/Recruiting. I enjoy traveling, meeting new people, reading, cooking and going to the beach!

My husband and I bought this property because we love the 'old world' charm of the neighborhood with its' brick streets and craftsman style architecture. We love that we can walk to our favorite restaurants, shops and entertainment! This neighborhood is like a New England town without the cold weather!

This is a single level cottage so there won't be any stairs to navigate except 2 steps onto the front porch. There is a private parking spot behind the cottage. It has central AC/Heat (no window shakers)! Easy walk to downtown and the waterfront with it's own small beach! You'll also enjoy a private washer/dryer right in the cottage. A horse drawn carriage can pick you up right at the cottage door (a unique benefit to this neighborhood) and tour you around the neighborhood and/or take you downtown and drop you off at dinner! So fun!

IMMACULATE COTTAGE WITH ATTENTIVE HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
My wife, my 2 year old son and myself recently stayed at this spotlessly clean cottage; you could literally eat off the floor, it was immaculate - I definitely invoked the five second rule several times. In addition to the cleanliness, the place was super comfy with relaxing decor. When we came back from all day at the beach, the couch and some Gold Rush on the flat screen was where it was at. It was glorious to fall asleep on the couch at five and wake up at six to the smell of dinner from the full kitchen that we almost ate every meal out of; saved a ton of money and had some awesome meals outside on the patio. Jen and Brian were super helpful suggesting places to go, including an all natural grocery store and provided good recommendations of things to do. We left refreshed and eager to return! Thank you for having us - cheers Jen and Brian!

Such an amazing piece of paradise! Immaculately clean and beautiful home. Everything is so close to either walk or take a quick drive. And yet so peaceful and quiet.

We would recommend this property to anyone looking for and beautiful, quiet place to relax and enjoy the Florida sun!

We hope to come back next year, and the year after that! :)

WONDERFUL HOME BASE TO EXPLORE DOWNTOWN ST. PETE.

  • 5 of 5
Jennifer and Brian's cottage is a wonderful place to call home base while visiting the St. Pete area. Beautifully decorated, clean and the location is perfect for walking to downtown St. Pete and Tampa Bay beaches and marinas. After exploring all day it was a joy to come home to this delightful cottage. The bed, linens, kitchen and bath were first class. Even our dog had a good time meeting the many other pets in the area. Dog park just a short walk away. Highly recommend for a couple looking for a week or weekend away.

HIGH MARKS FOR THE COTTAGE AND THE OWNERS!

  • 5 of 5
We were very happy with our week in this cottage. It was updated, clean, comfortable and had everything we needed to relax after busy days. We enjoyed the small porch, just to sit outside in the peaceful, warm weather! Jennifer and Brian were friendly, helpful and accommodating during our stay. Brian even did some quick troubleshooting on our laptop, which we appreciated! We felt very safe as we walked the few blocks to the water, enjoying the architecture of this historic area. The Sat. morning Farmer's Market near the water was great and very popular. We really enjoyed our visit to DeSoto State Park . They had miles of bike paths, walking paths, and picnic areas next to the water. The Gulf Pier in the park is known for the dolphins swimming around it, so we had a close up view of them. I would highly recommend this cottage, the pictures depict it perfectly. Many thanks!

THE COTTAGE SUMMARIZED IN ONE WORD - - IMMACULATE.

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have found a nicer or more enjoyable location or hosts in all of Florida. The place was cozy and bright with all the amenities to make you feel right at home. Jennifer and Brian were very gracious and knowledgable about the area even suggesting restaurants and things to do. We could walk everywhere.... to the beach, parks, cafes, shops, museums and gardens. It was a fantastic two weeks. When we didn't eat out, the kitchen was very well equipped and spotless. We plan to return again soon and highly suggest it to others. Our favorite restaurants were The Fourth Street Shrimp Store and Mazzaro's Italian Market. And don't miss the Chihuly Collection.

WONDERFUL COTTAGE IN A WONDERFUL NEIGHBORHOOD!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jennifer's St. Petersburg cottage. It features charming décor and everything needed for our comfort. We truly felt that we were at home. One of the best things for us was the neighborhood. It is filled with historic bungalows with beautiful gardens. The location is terrific--you can walk to two waterfronts, one of them downtown and the other with a long walk/bike path. If you want to go to a movie for visit St. Petersburg's Sunken Gardens, that is walkable as well. We highly recommend this HomeAway rental and we thank Jennifer and her family for making it available!
