We've lived in St. Petersburg three times in our lives. We absolutely love this area, and own the home just six doors down (The Pointe at Stephenson Manor....vrbo #418246. We have put our heart and soul into decorating this home can't wait to hear our guests reviews, as we're hopeful they will be truly amazed.

What makes this house unique

Stephenson Manor is a gorgeous neighborhood. All of the neighbors take such great pride in keeping both their homes and yard immaculate. The view from the front of the house is awesome. We have come to know most of the neighbors surrounding and are dear friends with four of them. They would do anything to help at a moments notice. We also love the circular drive, the gorgeous appliances, granite countertops, and of the new fixtures in this home.

Well appointed, clean, roomy and inviting

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I just spent four nights at this St. Pete VRBO unit and were extremely pleased with it. If you are heading to the area and want to be close to beach as well as downtown St. Pete but in a quiet neighborhood at night this is your place!

Unit has 3 spacious bedrooms, modern well equipped kitchen, screen in outside lanai for morning coffee, open space inside. So when we invited my father and wife to join us for the day the seven of us adults never felt crowded together. The home is clearly newly renovated and decorated very nicely so it truly has a home away from home feel--very inviting. We chose this unit based upon pictures and good reviews and it was exactly as advertised. Prior to arrival as well as during stay owner was very responsive to questions we had providing prompt and complete info every time.

Owner has provided ample beach accessories in the garage such as cooler, chairs, and towels so no need to bring anything like that. Brand new outdoor grill available though we didn't use cause we had dinners covered.

Location is excellent for exploring St. Pete...close fully stocked Publix grocery and drug store also handy.

My sister and I both remarked that many times we feel compelled to "clean" a bit upon entering a rental unit but NOT here. This home was spotless!

We definitely will rent here again when returning to St. Pete. Downtown area around Central Ave and waterfront especially nice to stroll shops and eating areas galore.

This place is wonderful. We stayed for only five days and wish we could've stayed longer. The house is beautifully decorated with a cozy feel to it and very quiet!! There is a large fenced in backyard, which was perfect for our kids and dog. There is a dog friendly beach nearby so your dog/s can enjoy the beaches too. The owners are great and very responsive to any questions you might have. We highly recommend this place.
