Ideal cottage property for our St. Petersburg stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed the month of March in the cottage. The property was ideal for us. We loved the daily walks and cycles to the waterfront and around town. The location is perfect. The cottage has everything you need for an extended stay ... a well equipped kitchen, lots of bedding and towels, washer and dryer. Our hosts David and Elizabeth were super responsive and any minimal issues that did arise were handled immediately. Loved our stay and would highly recommend this spot to others.

Lovely cottage short walk from Beach Drive

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was homey and comfortable, like a home away from home. The location was perfect just a short walk from the shops and restaurants on beach drive. The neighborhood was really nice with lots of elegant old homes but not pretentious. We like it so much that we are considering relocating to St Petersburg

Enjoyed our stay

Had a great vacation. The house was cute and perfect for our family. It was walking distance to the 4th of July celebrations. Was happy to see there were beach towels for us to use during our stay.

We loved this place. With my dad's limitations and having a baby along we needed something close to the wedding venue and comfortable. It was exactly what we were looking for. Beautiful home in a great city. If we make it back to this area we wouldn't hesitate to book this place again. Only troubled spot was the parking. We weren't sure where to park and what was allowed.
