About Kim Manghisi

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

Why Kim Manghisi chose St Petersburg

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.

What makes this house unique

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?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Kim;



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.



Cheers,



Hall and Wendy

Great location and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Sandra. You and your husband were a pleasure. Finding guests such as yourselves is as enjoyable for an owner as finding the right vacation rental is for a guest. I'm so glad everything worked out in the end after the initial uncertainty about whether you would be able to come! Your family is welcome anytime. Warmest Regards, Kim

Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Jaime, No fish???!!! That's plain tragic! You'll just have to come back and try again! Pleasure having you. Congrats to your daughter. Thanks for introducing Herman! Best, Kim

Beautiful House on the Water

  • 5 of 5

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.

Our stay in St Pete

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you LAD. It was a genuine pleasure having you both. Your Shelties are beautiful! Sitting on the Lanai watching the sunset and the waterfront is so peaceful, and downtown St Pete is fantastic. I try to remind guests that although the beaches in St Pete are among the best anywhere, the downtown has so much to offer in it's own right. Not to be missed. Please come again. You're welcome anytime. Best, Kim

winter getaway

  • 4 of 5

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

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

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.
