Your home away from home is just steps from St. Petersburg's Beach Drive which anchors downtown shopping, dining and entertainment districts that include outdoor cafes and restaurants, world class museums and an array of shops, galleries, and businesses that line the city’s pedestrian-friendly streets.

We are only a 15-20 minute drive from The Gulf of Mexico and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. With an average temperature of 73.6 degrees, St. Petersburg records 361 sunny days which means you can enjoy the beach almost anytime of the year.

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.

Beautiful place and location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enojoyed our stay! The cottage is in a prime location where you can walk to all that downtown St Pete has to offer and a short 20 minute drive to Tampa and the beaches. We had two adults, two small children (the toy chest was a nice plus) and a small dog. The neighbors were kind and offered us a free meal at one of their restaurants nearby as well. The kitchen had all of the necessities and even had coffee stocked. You'll be glad you stayed here!
