About Ann Goldman
I am originally from Annapolis, Maryland where my former husband and I rehabbed historic homes. We accumulated a handful that we rented. When I came to Florida to escape the dismal northern winters, I continued to rehab. Most of my rentals are 12 months. I rent to sophisticated renters who appreciate vintage homes with lots of charm and character. I also take a special interest in the yards, adding fountains and gardens. Lately, I have been getting many requests from people looking for short term rentals. Some want to escape the northern winters, some are looking to purchase property in this exciting town and want to live here as they search. Some want a second home here. I hope I can help with all those needs.
Why Ann Goldman chose Historic Old Northeast
I purchased this property in 2014. It is nearly 100 years old. They have a lot of character and are bigger than many hotel rooms. Plus, they have their own garages. Parking is an issue in town. For my guests convenience, I added a washer/dryer in each unit. I furnished them in my typical electric style. I like to mix shabby chic, coastal with a little retro. When done right, it makes for a relaxing and homey combination.
What makes this Apartment unique
The lofts are in a terrific location. Walk one direction and you are heading for the shops, restaurants, museums and waterfront in town. Walk the other direction and you are going toward the businesses on 4th Street . . . coffee shops, grocery stores. Walk to dinner and shops. It is only about 10 blocks. Walk to the water. It is about six blocks. In fact, you can see it from the street. Tons of restaurants, bars, shops, museums, theaters and festivals. Travel less than 15 minutes and you are at the gulf beaches with a variety of water sports. Even places like Disney are just a day trip away!. St. Petersburg, Florida keeps getting better. People used to think there was nothing to do in St. Petersburg but sit on the green benches downtown. But now, it is a vibrant, growing city and an exciting tourist destination.

Our little Oasis!
Ann, It was such a wonderful time, love your place, we called it our little oasis! You never felt like it was too small, so well appointed and thoughtfully arranged. Really appreciate the little extras, wine, chocolate, water. Plus, extras in the bathroom and kitchen. Thank you for your local tips as well!
Here were some of our favorite things;
Riding our bikes along the parks and stopping to see dolphins or stingrays and etc. was amazing! Even riding around old NE was a blast, we would try to predict how many wild parrots we would see at the house on 2nd St N, highest was 7! Crazy! Even biked to Lassing Park, another Gem, so quiet and peaceful there.
Of course the Dali, plus we did yoga at the Dali and it was lovely! The James museum was amazing but I lived in Colorado so it really spoke to me. The Imagine museum was WAY more interesting than I thought it would be, would recommend taking their tour so informative, would not have understood and appreciated it as much.
The American Stage Theater was great, not a bad seat in the house!
Loved catching the free music outside on the patio at Ale and the Witch, even danced, very surprising to find that gem. Plus just walking and catching music on Beach and Central, even during the day on Saturday.
Took several workshops at Whimsodoodle. A mixed media and acrylic paint pour class, both were excellent.
Also took a pottery class from Charlie Parker studio with my daughter and it was fantastic! Kayla was our instructor was amazing, totally picked it up quickly with her guidance, so much fun.
Sunken Gardens was beautiful and interesting and next door is an amazing bakery!
The loft was just right!
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in Gene’s loft. To our delight the website pictures were accurate—the decor is colorful and quirky as well as comfortable. Ann welcomed us with fresh flowers and a nice bottle of wine. We were a little worried about the size for a little longer stay than our usual vacations, but we found it was just right. The bath and kitchen were stocked with all the basics we needed, including shampoo and soap, basic cleaning supplies, coffee, sugar, salt/pepper, etc. We also appreciated being able to leave our car safely in the garage.
Thanks to the convenient location in Old Northeast, we stayed busy with daily walks along the bay, golf, museum visits, trips to nearby St. Pete Beach, enjoying local restaurants, and visiting with friends in the area. We even took in a Rays game!
All the comforts of home!
Gene’s Loft West is so cozy with all the comforts of home. The moment we stepped into the bright and cheery loft we knew our extended stay was going to be perfect in every way.
Ann gave us easy access instructions so flexibility with our arrival time was much appreciated. A fresh bouquet of tulips, along with a bottle of wine and dark chocolates were such a thoughtful gesture intimating “welcome home!” Fresh ground coffee and bottled water were also on hand.
The kitchen is well equipped allowing several home cooked meals when desired. We actually entertained friends on two separate occasions.
A comfy queen bed with crisp white sheets and cozy comforter ensured a good night’s sleep. The claw-foot tub was an added bonus as I really enjoy a relaxing bath.
The loft is centrally located to restaurants, coffee shops, parks—all within walking distance through one of the most desirable neighborhoods in St. Petersburg.
Ann is a delightful hostess who prides herself on making your stay as comfortable as possible. Thank you for a most memorable time in St. Pete!

This was a perfect little apartment for me.
Perfect location to with everything I wanted to do and in walking distance. Beautifully decorated with all the amenities needed. Ann responded quickly to any concerns. A mistake not to stay here if you want to be in Downtown St Pete!
