Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Belle Vista - Queen Palm Cottage

Historic Cottage, 3B/2B

Let all your worries wash off shore when you visit Queen Palm Cottage. Step back into time as you relax in a renovated 1930s Gulf Coast beach cottage. While you reminisce what the old Florida beach life must have been like, enjoy all of the modern amenities. The salt-kissed air and tropical breezes are a constant reminder that you are little more than a 1 block walk to the most beautiful sunsets on the pristine white sand beaches and azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico!

Experience the beach life as a true local as you are nestled in a tranquil, quaint beach neighborhood (and not herded into crowds of tourists like large resorts often feel!). Blend in as a true local, as the very best neighborhood restaurants, beach bars, coffee shops, shopping and beautiful tropically-landscaped parks are steps from your very own cottage! All major beach resorts, including the majestic Don Cesar in historic Pass-a-Grille are within walking distance.

Just a 3 minute walk to the sea shell-laced beach, this charming cottage is the cleanest around. Imagine yourself surrounded by mature tropical trees and a patio paved with 150 year old bricks. Inside, original red oak hardwood floors welcome you into rooms tastefully adorned in coastal decor. If you appreciate attention to detail, Queen Palm Cottage is just for you!

The very relaxed Florida and Cuban-inspired decor is also found in the sleeping/living area with plush bedding, linens, and pillows to catch a good night's rest after a full day of sightseeing, water sports or just relaxing on the nearby, award-winning beaches. The cottage is completed in a very comfortable and relaxing setting that includes plenty of room to accommodate extra guests or family members. Natural light fills the cottage as thick plantation window blinds throughout lend to the feel and ambiance of the southern seas. The kitchen, complete with full appliances and cookware, is decorated in natural tones and a seashell theme that are a constant reminder of the sand and seashells that await you outside...providing the perfect backdrop for preparing your very own gourmet meals!

The cottage is finished nicely with an antique brick paver outdoor sitting area with a new Weber BBQ grill and plenty of chairs for guests. A fire pit awaits the late night chatter and story telling. Imagine yourself relaxing in your own outdoor space while listening to palm trees dancing in the tropical breezes while native birds sing you a song. Also, your very own boat dock is just steps from the cottage and may be reserved (depending upon availability) for an extra fee.

Queen Palm Cottage offers the perfect combination of luxury, comfort, value & recreation!

Winter Escape

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our six month stay at Queen Palm Cottage. Don and is wife, Larissa made us feel very much at home providing everything we needed including recommendations for entertainment and restaurants. The cottage was charming with a nice layout and very clean. We especially liked the brick patio with mature palms and exotic trees and plants. Our two dogs loved being outside in the large fenced yard. Our teenager thought it was great to be able to skateboard to the beach and to the 24 hour drugstore, and I loved being so close to stores and banks..... not spending so much time in the car running errands was a real plus. The quiet neighborhood within a short walk to the beach and surrounded by the bay was so perfect we unexpectedly purchased a home down the street from the cottage.

There were no surprises as property description was accurate

We recommend Queen Palm Cottage to our visiting friends and family.

The perfect tropical getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Queen Palm Cottage provides very peaceful, clean, and pleasant accommodations, with all of the comforts & conveniences of home. As a frequent visitor to the area, I've found this to be the best possible way to enjoy all the tourist attractions of St. Pete Beach and beyond, while living like a true "local"!

A slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

In our upside world of renovation and relocation, we found a slice of Paradise in our own backyard. We live in St. Pete but needed somewhere to stay while our home was under renovation. We found it......The home is unique, located in a beautiful Florida neighborhood where everyone is friendly. The house itself provides with solitude, peacefulness and a sense of belonging. The activities are at your fingertips from days at the beach, to magnificent sunsets and one of the "Best Burgers" I have found in this town. If you are looking for a place that is minutes from all the vacation amenities you could ever want and then be able to walk right back to a secluded home that has all the privacy you could want the QUEEN PALM COTTAGE is for you.

Leo and I will be back even though we live in St. Pete!!
