Built ten years ago, our home is located in a quiet residential area of the city of St Petersburg. This attractive city is a revelation to first-time visitors, with its upmarket, spacious centre the home to many museums, restaurants and attractions. With the best beaches in the state only 15 minutes away by car, and the major theme parks just over an hour's drive, St Pete offers a genuine Florida experience without the tourists! However, with high speed internet, a PlayStation, large gardens and a private swimming pool, you won't be bored if you never leave its four walls. We have welcomed numerous families to the house in the past few years and have yet to have anything other than glowing feedback.
NEIL & YVONNE CHAPPELL
Please note that we do not permit smoking inside the property.
There are many supermarkets just a couple of minutes from the house, including a couple of huge Publix and a Sweet Bay at the end of the road. All of the main local streets are lined with the usual suspects - McDonalds, Starbucks etc - but it's the smaller specialist restaurants that we prefer. The Sushi Rock Grill serves unbeatable sushi, while there are so many other top eateries that we can't list them here. A particular highlight in the city is the Saturday morning market in the shadow of Al Lang Field, which features local produce and art and is the perfect way to sample the slightly bohemian heart of St Pete's. With its parks, peaceful centre and harbour, it is a most unusual American city. There's a large cinema and you can often find surprisingly high profile bands and artists playing at the small, outdoor Jannus Landing. If you love sport, the Tampa Bay Rays play baseball in St Petersburg's Tropicana Field, with the Yankees and Red Sox frequent visitors. In nearby Tampa, the Buccaneers play football and the Lightning play ice hockey. We often find ourselves in one of the many local parks, playing football (of either kind) and baseball. Tampa boasts great shopping at International Plaza, where the wealthy and beautiful congregate. There are several other local malls and a popular outlet centre in Ellenton. Tampa has a reputation of something of a good time town, with Ybor City a unique Cuban-flavoured party district. If it's nightlife you're after, St Petersburg has some great bars, but Tampa is the place to be if your nights, not days are the priority.
