About Jennifer & Brian

Hi! We've lived in Florida for the past 17 years having moved here from Newport, RI. I graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelor of Science in Consumer Affairs. I've worked in Real Estate, Social Services and Staffing/Recruiting. I enjoy traveling, meeting new people, reading, cooking and going to the beach! My husband, Brian, is a Mechanical Engineer. He graduated from the University of South Florida. He enjoys bike riding, boating, ping pong, all things related to cars & working on his inventions!

Jennifer & Brian purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Jennifer & Brian chose Historic Old Northeast

My husband and I bought this property because we love the 'old world' charm of the neighborhood with its' brick streets and architecture. The neighborhood is filled with Craftsman style homes as well as Tudors, Mediterranean Revivals, Colonials, American Four Squares and others. We love that we can walk to our favorite restaurants, shops and entertainment! This neighborhood is like a New England town with Palm Trees but without the cold weather!

What makes this cottage unique

This is a single level cottage so there won't be any stairs to navigate except 2 steps onto the front porch. There is a private parking spot behind the cottage. It has central AC/Heat (no window shakers)! Easy walk to downtown and the waterfront with it's own small beach! You'll also enjoy a private washer/dryer right in the cottage. A horse drawn carriage can pick you up right at the cottage door (a unique benefit to this neighborhood) and tour you around the neighborhood and/or take you downtown and drop you off at dinner! So fun!

Very convenient and livable unit

  • 5 of 5

Jennifer and Brian do a great job of maintaining this unit. It has everything you need for your stay and is very clean. They also respond quickly to any problems and for us that wa s tv and ac. Tv accessible within minutes and ac in a few hours. It has a cute porch and patio with no real view but it’s quiet and comfortable. We walked and biked everywhere including downtown, museums, parks, waterfront, swimming, tennis, movies, shopping, etc. Old northeast is a quaint neighborhood that is shaded, safe, and highly walkable. Beaches are a 20 minute drive but there is one small beach within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay. It is as pictured.

Cottage Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in St. Pete. This neighborhood is so close to everything we love about St Pete. We were able to walk to downtown where there are a ton of things to do. We rented bikes , caught a wonderful Jazz concert at the Palladium, great restaurants all easily within walking distance . St Pete beach was a 10-15 minute drive or you could walk right down to the bay from this adorable cottage and be at a beach. Brian and Jen were the nicest hosts you could hope for. This cottage had everthing we needed to be comfortable and allowed us the privacy of a home away from home. So happy with our choice and plan to return again. Thanks for a great week.

Great location in St Petersburg, perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to stay in Historic Old Northeast St Petersburg and couldn't have found a better location. Cottage was extremely clean, cozy, private and comfortable. Neighborhood area is nice, safe and quiet. Both Jen and Brian were excellent hosts - super helpful, responsive and friendly with recommendations for the area. We had two small dogs with us and there was plenty of space inside plus a fenced yard outside for them to run around in. Location was perfect and everything we wanted to see was close by including grocery stores, amazing restaurants + coffee shops. Both my wife and I highly recommend this place and would definitely return if we are ever back in the area looking for a place to stay.

Just perfect for a short stay while our condo was being remodeled.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful little cottage. Well appointed from the kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom. Great location for downtown St. Pete activities. Extremely clean and quiet, central AC that really cools and a king size bed - all that were important to us. As a bonus the hosts Jen and Brian live on the property so response to any issues are immediate, not to mention how friendly and helpful they are. We would stay here again!
