Fantastic Florida Waterfront Wedding/Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Petro Waterfront Mansion! My wife and I decided to host our Wedding Reception and spend the week with our families at the Mansion and we are super happy that we did. We lived in the area for 4+ years and are lucky that we found this gem. We were both a bit scared to have our families share a week together, however this property allowed us the best opportunity for that. The way the Mansion is setup is perfect for everyone to be together or for each individual to have some private space. The location is really close to downtown St. Pete which was convenient, but we didn't have many reasons to leave once we arrived. The Mansion was stocked with pool toys, fishing gear, and we also enjoyed renting the kayaks and paddle boards which we highly recommend! Alex was attentive to every need and quick to respond to any questions that we had. Thank you Alex for helping make our wedding weekend special and we highly recommend anyone looking for a care free week in a perfect setting to stay at the Petro Waterfront Mansion!

Fantastisk eiendom!

  • 5 of 5

Vi var en gruppe på 4 famileier, totalt 17 stykker, som fikk gleden av å leie denne eiendommen en uke i juli. Dette er bare et slikt sted du oppleve se for å yte det full rettferdighet. Hit kommer vi gjerne tilbake.


Huset er digert og godt vedlikeholdt, med flotte fellesområder. Vil trekke frem det store kjøkkenet der mange kunne være med på matlagingen, spill- og trimrommet som ble benyttet mye av voksne og ungdommer. Ekstra bonus er to sett med vaskemasin/tørketrommel gjorde at vi kunne dra hjem uten noe skittentøy.


Uteområdet er helt fantastisk med sjøen rett ut, brygge, sofaområde, samt et flott basseng. Vi ble møtt velkommen av flere delfiner da vi kom og de var ofte i nærheten. Utrolig flott å kunne dra ut med kajakker en stille morgen. Bassenget er deilig med en dyp ende (mer enn 3 meter) der man kan stupe og leke seg. Bonus med musikkanlegg med ute og innehøytalere.


Huset ligger sentralt med kun korte kjøreturer til supermarkeder og restauranter og St. Pete sentrum. Det tar 15 min til St. Pete beach eller Treasure Island og 40 min til et flott outlet.


Alex møtte oss i huset da vi kom og gav oss en grundig gjennomgang og hadde mange gode tips i permen som ligger i huset. Alt det praktiske har fungert utmerket.

Takk for oss!

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to rent the Petro Mansion for just 3 nights. The owners Alex and Katrina had an opening so they allowed us to stay. We had a wonderful time! The mansion is so big that we needed to use our cell phones to find each other at times. We were only a group of 3 women. One of the nice things about the estate is that it is centrally located so that if we wanted to visit the beach we were a short 10 minute drive. If we wanted to have a nice dinner we just used Uber which was only a 2 mile drive into the heart of St. Pete. The estate is fully equipped with everything from pots and pans to condiments in the refrigerator. We plan on spending a full week next year at the Petro Mansion. Thank you Alex and Katrina for having thought of everything your guests could ever need.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just came from a week at the Petro Mansion. We had a fantastic time with the kids and grandkids, everyday was a joy. A great pool with a view that does not make you want to leave... The appliances are top notch, the house offering you everything you need to be comfortable (there were 19 of us from all ages). It was a real pleasure.

This house has everything. This is our second year in this house and we never regret it. We come with a family of sixteen strong and no one is in anyone's way. It has everything for every member of the family from relaxing by the pool to kayaking in the bay. We used the lanai every evening for the family to get together and converse about the day as we would go our separate ways many days. Alex has thought of everything in this house.
