Very nice, well cared for cottage in an excellent location. Walking distance to many fine restaurants and parks.Elizabeth and David were extremely helpful with answering any of our questions. I would not hesitate to stay here again! Only downside is there is not a lot of parking.

A Wonderful Cottage in the heart of St Petersburg

  • 5 of 5

Just spent the month of March at this wonderful Historic, Sunny Cottage! The cottage was clean, comfortable and provided our family with lots of room. It felt like home immediately. We loved the location as we were able to enjoy the city of St. Petersburg by just walking out of door. That meant exploring the shoreline, the parks, the restaurants, and the shops. The location was also convenient to the entire Tampa Bay area. The owners were responsive and willing to help us out when we needed it.

Would highly recommend staying here.

Convenient, quaint, quiet

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for my 2 colleagues and I to spend a retreat weekend. We did some work, cooked some food, walked to everything we wanted to do....it was all nearby. I was surprised by how quiet it was at night despite being a densely populated area of town. Highly recommend.

Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This rental is very comfortable and was a lovely quiet spot to retreat to after enjoying all that St Pete has to offer. Very convenient to everything. We mostly walked or biked to places, and the beautiful park is a few short blocks away. Hosts were helpful yet we had our privacy.
