Excellent Family Retreat For Mother's Day

  • 5 of 5

On short notice we were able to book this superb estate to celebrate Mother's Day. We had 3 families, so 3 moms. The expression on the mom's faces was the best part of the trip! As soon as they walked through the front doors they were astonished with the décor and unbelievable water views. They all raced through the kitchen to the outside paradise. The outside area is arranged with a large gazebo with comfortable couches and chairs and is sheltered from the sun. There are lounge chairs and umbrellas all around the pool. One of the best parts of this mansion was the game room that has a pool table, dartboard and foosball table and it was accessible from the pool area. This kept everyone happy. I also want to mention that the pool is solar heated and the water temperature was 88 degrees. Everything in the mansion was absolutely clean and organized. We also loved that it was only 2 miles from downtown St. Pete where the shops, lounges, museums and restaurants are located. A short drive was all it took to get to one of the best beaches in the world. Overall we were very impressed with the mansion! The host, Alex, was wonderful and was available 24 hours a day to help us arrange any events we needed. We have already decided to book it again next year.

Petro Waterfront is an AWESOME place to have a wedding!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance' and I wanted to have our wedding some place where the out of town guests wouldn't have to be worried or confused about where everything was or how to get there. Not only is the Petro Waterfront Mansion just the place, large enough for the out of town guests to stay too, but also a beautiful setting for wedding nuptials. Our overnight guests had plenty of room to socialize but also space to be alone if they chose. We had a small band by the pool and the next day bumped into neighbors who said they didn't hear a thing. Our wedding and vacation stay couldn't have been better and all of our guests loved it as well! Everyone even said they want to repeat our stay each Anniversary! The accommodations were ideal! Thanks Petro's!

Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to St. Pete for over 10 years and it has always been a challenge to find a property that will fit our group comfortably. The Petro Mansion is exactly what we are looking for - close to downtown, but very quiet. Great kitchen and layout allow plenty of room for us to hang out together - but plenty of space to give everyone some privacy. The owners are extremely accommodating and did everything they could to make our stay relaxing and hassle-free.

We are already looking forward to staying here again next year :)

Thanks Alex and Katrina!!

Just What the Dr Ordered

  • 5 of 5

Don't be put off by the drive through the neighborhood, the house itself is the destination and what a beautiful quiet spot it is. Once the front gate is closed you are in your own version of paradise. Perfect for 10 wine drinking ladies looking for an escape away from husbands, children, shoveling snow and the drudgeries of the everyday rat race. Ample room to come together, for dinner, a movie or sitting around to play cards or table games. Conversely, plenty of space to find your own spot, to relax, read, workout or get online. Thoroughly enjoyed our week broken up between time at the house and driving around the local sights. Would absolutely come again.

Magnificent estate.

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled all over the world, and this is one of the nicest homes we have ever rented. We stayed here once before and just had to come back for a longer trip this time. The house is gigantic and the layout was perfect for all 16 of us. There were enough rooms for everyone to stay in and have their own privacy. The children loved the play room with their own wing and especially the pool and game room. The fitness room was also a great amenity that most of us used. Staying in shape on vacation was easy especially with a view of the water and the pool to take your mind off of the workout.

The home is very well stocked and the kitchen was very well equipped with everything we needed to cook family meals including spices. In addition, the house was spotless upon our arrival and well stocked with water, soda, toilet paper and paper towels.

The location is only a few miles from the heart of downtown St. Petersburg with so many restaurant and entertainment choices. Our favorite restaurants were The Canopy at Birchwood and Bella Bravo which were located right on Beach Drive and overlooked the beautiful waterways of St. Petersburg.

St. Petersburg beach is a short car ride and one of the best beaches in Florida. We even drove to Clearwater Beach for the day and stayed for the special nightly sunset party at Pier 60.

Some of our family went to Orlando for a day trip to Disney World, while we opted to spend a day shopping at the Ellenton Outlet Mall in Bradenton, which was only 25 minutes away.

This is a 5 star accommodation all the way. This home has it all, but the outdoor living space was our favorite part. We spent almost every waking moment outside around the pool area. We had perfect weather in October and stunning views of the water from almost every room was just something out of a magazine.

Truly an amazing house which made for an unforgettable vacation for all of us. We can’t wait to come back for the 3rd time.
