"We loved Star of the Gulf!! Plenty of space and it was so nice to have many things provided for us! We also loved that is was so close to the beach and that the beach was private. We would take walks down the beach and see some places so crowded and be so thankful we were where we were! And it was a great price for all that we got! Thank you again!" D.W. Lexington, KY

About Miriam Buono
Star of the Gulf has been my family's beach house since I was a little girl. Our own children now enjoy this treasure. We are very happy to share it with other families.
Miriam Buono purchased this House in 2008
Why Miriam Buono chose Saint Petersburg
When my parents decided to retire, we just couldn't bear selling the house, so we bought it! Our children are so happy that we are now the owners of Star of the Gulf! We go as often as we can. It's the one place we can really get away from it all and relax.
What makes this House unique
We love our cozy little neighborhood, having the beach just a few steps away, and walking down to the corner diner for breakfast and lunch. The beach is a gem. White sand goes on and on for miles in each direction. We love having the beach to ourselves.

What is not to Love!!
Only steps from the Beach, friendly neighbors and plenty of great restaurants!
Peaceful location, clean, stress free environment. This was our third year staying at the Star of the Gulf. Can't wait to go back again next year!!
Spring break 2018
We stayed at the property over spring break and enjoyed our stay! I couldn’t of asked for a better location we were steps away from the ocean and private beach! We also enjoyed not having to drive everywhere, there were restaurants, Ice cream places, bars something for everyone. It was also nice to be able to cook out on the back grill. The townhome was stocked with everything you need! Thanks again Miriam for sharing your townhome with us!!
Perfect beach home for large groups!
Star of the Gulf offered a great space for large families or groups to stay within steps of the beach. Lots of sand toys, books, games, etc. for the kids. We did have an issue while we were there when the fridge in the main unit went out but, Miriam rectified the issue quickly, and a new fridge was delivered the next day!
Our only wish is that the kitchen items were more updated - newer pans would be nice, and some mixing bowls, as well as a crock pot. Overall, great vacation for a great price!
Thanks so much for your review, Heather!
Thanks to your helpful feedback, a new set of pots and pans, a set of mixing bowls, and crock pot have just been purchased!
I hope you can be our guests again soon!
Overall great property.
Enjoyed close walk to the beach. Just had minor issues with lighting the kids room light didn't work had to use lamp and the dining room lights didn't work either. The house overall was clean and big enough for my famIly and visitors. Would stay here again .
Thanks so much for being our guests. I am glad our electrician was able to replace the lights in the dining room and bedroom right away.
Fall Break 2016!
Great location! Steps from the beach and the Long Pier. Very roomy for a large group, plenty of space so you are not tripping over each other. Good mid point between Clearwater and St. Pete's Beach. There are lots of toys and beach stuff so you do not need to worry about bringing that! We had a great week and the weather was awesome!
First time in Florida from South Carolina
This was our first visit to Florida and we couldn't have been more pleased. The 'Star of the Gulf' was perfect for our big family. The home is very roomy and comfortable. The beach is only a few steps away and is never crowded, which we loved. There's a lot of near by things to do (shopping, putt putt, aquarium). Lots of books and games in the condo as well. This condo is like a home away from home. We will be back for sure.
Walk to the local diner on the corner for breakfast and lunch. Enjoy
long walks on the beach,
fishing at the pier, miniature golf.
