I am an artist by profession. My spouse is a design build contractor and remodelers. We are big time foodies, love outdoor activities and are avid readers.

Neverne Covington purchased this apartment in 1990

Because it is in a national historic district,full of brick streets and it has a variety of architectural styles. We can see the water from our front yard and are surrounded by park land, yet right in the Heart of downtown. We can walk to museums, over 60 restaurants, and 20 movie theaters. It is Very safe and we are owner occupied.

The attached terrace and fountain with a barbi and table and chairs next to the fountain. You can eat inside and out. Next. To our house in front, we have a gas firepit. The Casita is tastefully designed. The memory foam bed is brand new. Cozy!

Idyllic place to stay

I could not have found a more perfect property than this one. I enjoyed every minute of my stay. The studio was decorated with taste, the location was perfect, and the owners provided good customer service. There were maps in the room and suggestions with menus for dining or for a casual breakfast. There is even a bike for exploring the historic neighborhoods although the musea, galleries, art shops are all in easy walking distance. I am recommending this property to my friends.

Ideal location to enjoy Downtown St. Petersburg

We enjoyed our stay in this studio apartment very much. The apartment's size and location were perfect for us. The kitchen is fully equipped and the futon bed was very comfortable. Best of all, a bayside park and small beach, restaurants and the downtown area are all within walking distance. We enjoyed being able to park the car most days and just walk to the many attractions. For those who don't know downtown St. Petersburg its very active and safe for walks at night.
The listing was very accurate and the unit was spotless upon arrival. The owners were very hospitable and answered any questions we had as well as letting us know about local activities and events. We'd highly recommend staying here and hope to do so again.

Quiet Outdoor Garden in a Historical Urban Setting

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 21, 2012
  • Stayed: Mar 2012
Staying here presented Florida at its best. Stroll the historical Old Northeast Neighborhood or walk within 5 blocks to enjoy sophisticated dining and museums all while being almost steps away from the bayshore park and beach. The quiet garden and fountain lets you enjoy Florida weahter in any season The room is well equiped including a great kitchen, fine sound system and HD TV. The bathroom, although relatively small, was attarctive, clean and fully updated. For bring a studio the shape of the room greatly helped to remove the Kitchen from both earshot and view. The hosts provided many worthwhile suggestions as to dining and current entertainment events. We did not feel the need for a car even though we stayed over 3 weeks since we made many short and long trips on the bikes that were provided. Overall ,we hope to return many times as this is a great place to stay.
