Thanksgiving with family & friends

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for 3 days. All I can say is simply gorgeous house & location!!!

This house has activities for all ages to enjoy outdoor and indoor. The owner Alex was very nice and friendly. They let our family member come in 2 days prior to drop off groceries. Very very quite location and specious house. I was worried because online picture sometime surprises you once you check in. But not this place. What you see online is what's delivered. I would defiantly rent this house again And recommend to all my family and friends. The saddest part to this trip was leaving all good memories behind till next time.....

Wedding Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I can write a novel about our week's stay. I can't say enough about our experience at this beautiful mansion. We booked the house one year before our wedding and we were more than pleased with Alex's hospitality, kindness, warmth, and help. He made sure to accommodate every single one of our needs. He is incredibly inviting and my husband and I didn't hesitate to book the mansion the day Alex gave us a tour.

Our guests who stayed at the house were in paradise. I mean that literally. All of our family have different interests and hobbies and there were more than enough activities at the mansion for everyone to do. Whether reading facing the sunshine and the bay, doing laps in the pool, fishing on the dock, resting in a quiet room, cooking, socializing on the comfy furniture under the gazebo, or working out in the gym, our guests were more than pleased. And this is a short list! The list of amazing things to do is endless...

With that said, our wedding day and evening was perfect. And that is an understatement. We had a total of 120 people at the wedding and you would have NEVER guessed that many people were there! We had 10 tables, over 100 chairs, a DJ and a bartender, too! The space is phenomenal! We had people of all age groups (infants to great grandparents) and the area is safe for all age groups. One of our guests depends on a wheelchair and she wants to personally thank Alex for having a wheelchair accessible property. The mansion is incredibly affordable, also! I am a teacher and my husband is in sales and were able to pay for all of my family to stay under one roof for an entire week!! No hotels, no spending money eating out just to be together, no saying goodnight super early because of a block of hotel rooms being scattered; just pure quality family time under one roof. Alex made sure our dream came true. He answers all calls and texts and addressed all questions we had IMMEDIATELY. We had ZERO complains. Most importantly, we felt safe and we felt like we were at home. The gated property gave us privacy.

My husband, our family and friends, and I will forever remember our wedding week. It was very special. Our family and friends are still talking about it. I will forever recommend the Petro Mansion. I know that my mom said she will book the mansion for another family gathering in the future. Alex, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You helped make our dream come true.

A magical place made for our magical week!

  • 5 of 5

With 15 of us staying at the house, we had more than enough room to spread out, congregate to laugh and tell stories - and introduce our long time friends and families who had come from across the country to celebrate our weekend of joy and witness our wedding. With the kayaks and paddleboards, pool, fishing pools and gear, everyone had things to do. We enjoyed time around the pool tremendously and perfect the weather added to the awesome setting to create the perfect backdrop for our wedding. Alex, thank you for sharing Petro with us! Memories made!

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!
