Please allow me to answer any questions you may have. You'll come to love the area as I have.
I've been coming down to St Petersburg for many years and look forward to living here full time once the kids finish school. There are always so many things to do and the area is so beautiful. I know you'll love it as much as I do.
Kim Manghisi purchased this house in 2009
This property is located in a community of beautifully maintained waterfront homes. The homeowners take a great deal of pride in their homes and the neighborhood is friendly and safe. There are a lot of community organized events to take advantage of.
I love the convenient location to the downtown St Pete area as well as to St Pete Beach, Clearwater Beach and Tampa. Everything is within a short drive and even Disney World and Sea World are a short 1 hr 20 min drive!! What could be better?
As we get settled back into our home after a four month stay in yours, I want to report that we have been more than satisfied with every aspect of our tenure here. We feel we were very fortunate to have come across it as a place to stay during the restoration of our house on Snell Isle.
Although we have lived in St. Petersburg for over 10 years we had never recognized all the merits of your community. The area is only two miles farther from the city center than our place we found it even more quiet and traffic free than our place. It is a very safe neighborhood for walking with a very friendly family oriented feel to it.
Your house is in excellent condition and your furnishings far nicer and more complete than we expected of a rental. We have felt more as though we have been house sitting a nice home.

From the moment I initially talked to Kim until check-out, I was pleased with the experience! She is wonderful and took great care to make sure we felt comfortable. The home is in a great location about 10-20 minutes from all the popular beaches. The bedrooms are spacious, and the living area has been newly decorated. This house was an excellent vacation option for our large family. We would definitely recommend and hope to visit again in the future!
What can we say.....The stay was awesome!!!! Exactly what we wanted. We had the pleasure of staying in this property for our daughter's graduation. Plenty of room, very clean and comfortable amongst other things. My only complaint is that I did not catch any fish but that was more of operator error on my part :). Our house guest - a crane which we named Herman was there every morning to greet us. He is partial to chicken breast. Kim was outstanding. We highly recommend this getaway.
This is a wonderful house to spend quality time with family or friends. Having coffee on the lanai in the morning - watching the fish jump in front of you - was a daily treat. We had the pleasure of watching cranes and a couple of dolphins right off the dock.! The house is beautifully furnished and includes just about everything you'll need for your stay. The owner, Kim, is extremely attentive and very responsive to your questions and needs and we were delighted that we got the chance to meet her. We loved everything about the area and our month there went by much too quickly.
The house was perfect for the two of us and our two shelties and very clean and comfortable. We were able to easily close off some of the rooms that we didn't use. We watched the beautiful sunsets from the lanai and enjoyed eating at the many downtown cafes. Having stayed at hotels in the area many times, it was such a pleasure to have an extended stay at a wonderful home in a quiet neighborhood with a water view.
The owner was delightful and was available to answer any questions or concerns.
This house is a definite on my list of places to return.
Rented this house for a month to get away from the cold. The house was very nice and I immediately felt at home. The heated pool was great and the fenced in yard made it perfect for my two small dogs. Kim was very pleasant and responded immediately to any questions I had. I would defiantly recommend this property to anyone looking for the perfect getaway
This house is perfect for a family. We rented it for our daughters wedding at St Pete Womans Club. It's close by downtown. The pictures show exactly what you get. The owner was great to work with. She returned our deposit the day after we left.
Short drive to downtown St. Petersburg where you'll enjoy the waterfront of the Tampa Bay, fine dining, shopping, museums, street fairs, out door concerts, and much more.
Thirty minutes to Tampa and Clearwater, 1hr 20 min to Orlando, FL and Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom.
Other Orlando attractions include: The Orlando Science Center, Wonder Works children's museum, Sea World, Lego Land, Arabian Knights Dinner Theater and Universal Studios Florida to name a few.
