Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Don Cesar - Le Petit Palmier

Our Chic Little Hideaway Is A Stone's Throw From The Beach And The Don Cesar

Our small, up-to-date house is across a narrow lane from one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Modern kitchen, three luxuriously appointed bedrooms, and a pretty bath provide a perfect haven to relax after a day of fun in the sun. A stone's throw from the Don Cesar Hotel, you can take advantage of their beautiful spa, bars and restaurants.

While small, this chic little gem lives large. The main living room/dining room features a large sectional sofa and television, with the other half of the room devoted to a big french farm table that seats 8. Filled with original art and sunshine, the 3 bedrooms (1 king, 1 queen and 1 twin room) are equipped with the world's most comfortable mattresses and 600 thread count bedding, to ensure sweet dreams after your days on the beach, in the water or on the golf course.

The property is actually a little compound, with a separate garage that includes another full bath for washing off the day's adventures. There is a lovely private sunny courtyard surrounded by palm trees and flowers, in addition to an outdoor seating area and a teak table and chairs and gas grill for al fresco evening meals. Beach chairs, coolers, umbrellas, beach towels and two bicycles are all there for your enjoyment.

About Patricia Pedersen

Born and raised in New York, I have spent most of my adult life living overseas. My husband and I returned to the States last year and have made the west coast of Florida our new, wonderful home...

Patricia Pedersen purchased this house in 2015

Why Patricia Pedersen chose Florida

Our house could not have a more ideal location in this part of Florida. While situated across a small alley from a wide, uncrowded stretch of pure white sandy beach, it also sits only 4 houses north of the iconic Don Cesar Hotel, with its excellent spa, bars and restaurants. There are free public tennis courts a 4 block walk from the house, several marinas and two golf courses less than a 10 minute drive from the house. Historic Pass-a-grille, with its lovely small town shops and restaurants is a short bicycle ride through picturesque shell strewn alleys. Fishing trips, dolphin watching and parasailing are all easily arranged within walking distance of the house. The truly lovely city of St Petersburg is a short 15 minute car ride, making cultural events such as concerts, plays and museums easily accessible.Tropicana Stadium, home to the Tampa Bay Rays, is also ten minutes away.

What makes this house unique

Our house is in the absolute most ideal location on St Pete Beach -- quiet yet within walking distance to all the best the beach has to offer. A short 30 minute drive to Tampa International Airport, this spot is easily accessible for even a long weekend from almost anywhere in the the US and Europe. Finally, the easy walk across the lane to the path to the beach means you can be cooking dinner, see the sky turn pink and take that glass of wine to the beach for the nightly sunset ritual without worrying that your steaks will be overcooked!

Once you stay here, you will never want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

My family & I stayed here for a week & let me just say it wasn't enough time. This beach house is the perfect little jem on St. Pete beach. It's location is convenient to everything, beach, restaurants, jet skis, ect. Not only is the house decorated tastefully but also updated. After a day at the beach my family & I would relax in the courtyard with its tropical yet private, cozy feel. This is the best house & I promise you won't want to leave. The owners have gone out of their way to make this house perfect and trust me you will not be disappointed!

Great location. Perfect home away from home. Amazing attention to the details.

  • 5 of 5

This place is seriously such a gem. So in love with it and looking forward to going back. It has everything you could possibly need or want for a relaxing time away from home. You feel completely at home. The interior is decorated to beach shore side perfection. Great entertaining space outside. Outside shower to rinse the sand off your toes and sand off your body. An additional bathroom in the garage to get all the beach off you. Everything you need for a day at the beach, a dinner party, and a great time. This place has it all! Highly recommend it. If I could it more than 5 stars I would.☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our area and time with family. The house is so perfect, secluded and efficient. The baby loved the beach too. All of the amenities were great. We were also so close to everything. Including a MLB baseball game and fort Desoto.

Wonderful Beach House Just Steps from the Water

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just stayed at this cute house for 3 weeks and were very happy with the entire situation - the location, the proximity to the Gulf, and especially the house itself. The owner has thought of every detail. The house is attractively decorated with beachy, soft colors and is relaxed and comfortable. It's actually roomier than what the photos depict. Every amenity has been thought of including anything possibly needed to go the beach. There is a beautiful private patio where we loved spending time. It had comfortable and colorful furniture and lush plantings. We also loved being close to the "Don". The Don Cesar is a beautiful, "Old Florida" hotel within walking distance and we went there for drinks, lunch, and dinner. It was like having our own private country club just steps a away. We definitely plan to go back!

Thoughtful touches throughout this fresh modern home...

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Christmas this year at the beach. This home was perfect for us, our two children and my in-laws.

Patricia was so thoughtful and prompt with her communication. The house is light and airy and a quick walk to the Gulf. We loved sitting outside in the courtyard with the gulf breezes blowing through the palms. This home is truly a magical little gem.

In one word - perfect!

  • 5 of 5

From December 12-19, my wife, her parents, and I spent an incredible week in St. Pete Beach. This house is a dream. There is plenty of room to spread out. Dining indoors and outdoors is a great experience. The home is located in a wonderful neighborhood, one row off the beach, and a short walk to the Don Cesar or a number of restaurants. I can't say enough positive things about Patricia and this quaint, beautiful house. I will be staying here again. Cooking indoors and outdoors was a treat -- with a beautiful, updated indoor kitchen, and an easy-to-use gas grill on the patio. If you aren't sure whether or not this is the place for you, book it -- you will not be disappointed! Can't beat St. Pete Beach weather, either -- highs around 80, lows around 70. Treat yourself - and visit Passe Grille and the Dali Museum while you're in town!
