About John Fuller

We live full time in Atlanta, Georgia where John is The Managing Broker of Real Estate Firm and Toby works in the Medical Software Industry. John grew up in Indianapolis, Toby in Grand Island, Nebraska. We have three dogs who are a great joy of our lives. We are in love with this home and know you will love it too! We've spent countless hours making this home perfect for your vacation.

John Fuller purchased this house in 2012

Why John Fuller chose St Petersburg

We've lived in St. Petersburg two different times in our lives, once on Pass-a-grille Beach, and the other near Gulfport. Job transfers took us away, but in the back of our minds we always wanted to come back. We bought this home for a get away, however, we can't do that too often given our work schedules in Atlanta. We'd love to share our piece of St. Petersburg with you and your family or friends.

What makes this house unique

Open Floor Plan is awesome. When you walk into the home, you can see into the dining room, kitchen, and sunroom. The bones of this home are strong and our renovation has given it the spark it needed. The sunroom and third bedroom are now equipped with central (completed when we added the brand new entire HVAC system including all new duct work) so we were able to open the dining room and kitchen to the sunroom for even more of an open feel. All new Italian Granite Countertops in the kitchen and both bathrooms. New 6' Privacy Fence in large backyard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time. I'm really glad we decided to bring our dog. She loved all the birds and lizards and chasing them around and all the people walking other dogs around the city at night. Was very enjoyable we'll probably come back whenever we get more vacation. Thanks.

Gorgeous and Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We, me and two friends from Alaska, arrived at Stephenson Manor and we were completely wowed by the size, comfort and décor. The décor was classy, sophisticated, and modern. The master bedroom is beautiful, with an on suite bathroom with shower and a walk in closet. My friend said she felt like a queen and the bed was extremely comfortable. I stayed in the second bedroom in the main part of the house, which was also quite large and decorated beautifully. The third in our party ended up staying in the smaller room off of the sun room. Other than the amount of light coming in from the windows, she said she was very comfortable, and she loved the in room air conditioner. The neighborhood was very quiet and residential. You definitely need a car, but the beaches, shops, and downtown St. Pete is not too far away, 15-20 minutes. Clearwater, St. Pete and Ft. de Soto beaches are all close by and ALL were beautiful and not overly crowded. The owners provided beach chairs, beach mats, and an umbrella for renters to use, which was very convenient! One of the owner's neighbors came over to help us with an issue with the cable, which was affected by a power surge. Toby was very personable and helpful. He recommended a local restaurant, 400 Beach, which was an excellent restaurant to visit. This was a wonderful first time visit and the Stephenson Manor was a wonderful oasis from the hot weather.

Wonderful Home and Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and in a great location! Only took 15-25 min to get to great beaches and restaraunts. The house had everything we needed and the neighborhood was very quiet. John was great and answered any questions we had in a timely manner and kept us updated on the weather there since the Tropical Storm had just hit there. We will defintely be staying here again when we come to St. Pete!! Thanks John for everything!!

Amazing Pet Friendly Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this home was absolutely perfect! Not like anything we have ever seen in rental property, especially being pet friendly. The home is recently updated and beautifully decorated with all new furnishings including bedding and towels. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could possibly need and completed stocked with an abundance of paper supplies, detergents, soap, etc. Most important thing for me is renting a clean home and this home was squeaky clean. I always travel with a bottle of Fantastik but had no reason to use it. It is so difficult to find rental homes in the St. Petersburg area that doesn't require a week plus lease and even harder to find a pet friendly home. John was more than accommodating with our 3 night stay and welcoming our two pups. The yard is beautiful manicured and the fenced in backyard was great for the dogs. We even enjoyed a few limes from the tree (I hope that was alright!) This is the first VRBO/Home Away rental in which the owner actually reached out to me by phone - usually the communication is via email and not very timely. John called me the same day I inquired and was very responsive throughout the process. A big thanks to John for your kindness and allowing us rent your lovely home! We look forward to returning in the near future!

Easily the most perfect vacation house in St. Petersburg

  • 5 of 5

The house was very spacious, accommodating 4 grown ups comfortably. Its proximity to both the usual errands (grocery, pharmacy, etc) and the beach was great! We spent less time navigating, and more time vacationing; we even made a very easy drive into Orlando for a day. The kitchen was stocked with all the essential appliances (the slow cooker works great!). I would 100% recommend this house to a family or just a group of friends, like my group. The easiest part of the trip was getting it organized with John. He really went above and beyond to make this trip happen. Do yourself a favor and download the app! He responds to messages within a day, and there are so many helpful tips included. Happy vacationing!

Great Home! Very Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Was down in St. Petersburg for a quick celebration of my mother's 70th birthday with my family. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The house is spotless and extremely comfortable. Centrally located with a publix grocery store less than 2 miles away and a 10 min drive to the beautiful St. Petersburg beaches. The owner John could not have been more accommodating, ensuring that our stay was fantastic and all of our needs were met. Would definitely come back and recommend this place to anyone visiting the area.
