About Robin and Kathy Rafiner

My wife and I are from Kansas City, Missouri. I was in sales and the Army Reserves for many years. My wife was in the medical field for her career. We enjoy visiting and meeting with US and worldwide visitors. The fun is introducing them to the hidden gems of Saint Petersburg and the surrounding areas..

Robin and Kathy Rafiner purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Robin and Kathy Rafiner chose St Petersburg

We discovered the area after many trips to Florida and found it beautiful and convenient to other destinations around the state. Rest with short walks or bike rides around the Ol' Northeast or explore and see so many natural activities within an hour or less drive of our home. Memories at the beaches, manatees, dolphins, sail boating, sports facilities, cruising, fishing, biking, walking, boating, SUP, kayaking, restaurants, and wineries.

What makes this apartment unique

One block away is the most beautiful walking and biking trail that you can take every morning. Every day is a new adventure or sight. You can have chance meetings with dolphins, manatees, ducks, turtles, along with all the birds. You will find downtown St. Petersburg alive and growing with excitement. It feels like a small town within a big city. Oh, and Tampa is provides great half day or whole day trips.

Relaxing Remodeled Apartment Near Coffee Pot Bayou In Historic Old Northeast!

CoffeePot Blvd--What's Not To Like?

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with the area a few years ago, and finally found a spot a short block from Coffee Pot Bayou, in Old NorthEast St. Petersburg. With walking distance to many amenities, all we needed was a nice, clean apartment. This property exceeded our expectations.

The property owners were very helpful, both with the little things--something to help us with our cooking--and with the larger things, such as many helpful suggestions on how to make the most of this city. We loved the experience and are considering returning.

Cozy and Exceptionally Clean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two months, Jan. and Feb., 2017. We couldn't believe how clean the apartment was. Everything we needed was there. It's located in one of the best places in downtown St Pete, brick streets, tree lined, two blocks from the water, This is a great and safe location to walk and bike ride because of the boardwalk along the water and the streets aren't heavily used. Bikes are furnished. Very safe area and nice. We really enjoyed our stay and Kathy and Robin can't be beat, very nice and helpful, will help you in anyway they can. The apt. is well maintained with up to date appliances. Kathy and Robin know how to make you feel at home. Would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it for your vacation

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for the Labor Day weekend to visit with family and were extremely happy with the apartment that Robin and Kathy have remodeled. We were able to adjust and make it feel like home very quickly even though we were only in town for a few days. Staying close to family was the main benefit as we brought our 18 mo to see his cousins for the first time.

Lovely hosts - great apartment - great location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 and stayed at this cute apartment for one week in August 2016. Would have loved to stay longer.

Robin and Kathy are the most hospitable people. They offered their help all the time and on a rainy day Robin even put a huge umbrella for our family in front of our door. Such a nice gesture.

The apartment is beautifully furnished and extremely clean. Everything you need was cared for. On arrival there was even water in the fridge, fresh ice cubes and supplies for coffee. The appliances seemed to be brand-new.

We would love to come back to this perfect place very soon. :-)

Great Space, needed quickly!

  • 5 of 5

Our house was being remodeled and we needed a place during the remodel. Being local we knew this was a great, safe location for our two young boys and close to everything we use currently in our day to day lives. We found the retreat to be clean, close to the shops and enough space for all. Our boys thought we were on a sleep over and were sad at check out :)

A wonderful home base for Spring Break with the family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, with two teenaged boys, spent five nights in this charming apartment over Spring Break. We highly recommend it! It is a perfect home base for spending time at the beautiful beaches nearby or exploring attractions in St. Pete and Tampa. We really appreciated having Trader Joe's and The Fresh Market within a short walk. The kitchen was spotless and well equipped, so we could easily prepare quick meals and picnics. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer!
