Welcome to Casa Verde Florida! This vintage house in historic St. Petersburg is not a typical rental property. This is our home that we have worked tirelessly to modernize and restore to the tropical oasis you see. For now, our careers are taking us to Corvallis, Oregon for a few years to complete graduate school. Please come and enjoy our home – the way we have – while we’re gone!

Features include two newly designed and custom- built bathrooms, the main with Italian travertine and cedar, and the guest bathroom with Indian slate tile. The kitchen was remodeled in spring 2010 with new fridge, stove, tile, and paint. Two main furnished bedrooms include new paint and window treatments. Front and rear living areas are “Florida tropical” themed with new paint and lighting. The bonus room is a versatile space, with a queen size bed, workstation, hi-speed internet access, extra sleeping space, and room for indoor games and play time on those (rare!) rainy days.

Recycling and composting stations are available for the eco-minded traveler.

The highlight of the house is the outside living space. The spacious patio area, which includes a private hot tub surrounded by tropical foliage, is the idyllic way to relax. This area makes for perfect dining al fresco.

Our home is located minutes from beautiful downtown, waterfront, and the historic St. Petersburg Pier. A wide variety of restaurants and bars are nearby with outside seating and waterfront views. Daytime activities such as shopping, movies, and museums are all available downtown. Local beach access at North Shore Park is a perfect swim spot for children or leisurely stroll for couples. Coffee Pot Bayou Park is a great place to take kids, launch a boat, and watch wildlife. St Petersburg Beach, with sugary sand and turquoise-blue water, is just fifteen minutes away. Restaurants, bars, and a coffee shop are all within walking distance from our home.

Please feel free to email or call us with any questions about the home or surrounding area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We bought this house after meeting during graduate school at the University of South Florida. Susie is a marine biologist, and if she could, would spend every day in or near the water. Joe is a mechanical engineer, with a penchant for vintage car restoration. Despite our disparate career interests, we both have loved working on this house since the day we moved in. This house has been our retreat from workaday stress and the starting point for many day trips. Our favorite activity is riding our bikes from the house, along Coffee Pot Bayou, and into the downtown area. Here, we’ll stop for dinner or meet friends for drinks. We also love to bring a picnic dinner out to Pass-a-Grille Beach, swim in the warm tranquil water, and watch the sunset.

Why the Owner Chose St. Petersburg:
This is not a typical rental. This property was purchased as our home and we have treated it as such. We wanted something close to the water with easy access to the beach, shopping, and entertainment. It has a lush tropical back yard, fenced in for privacy. This is perfect for relaxing in the hot tub or having fun with the kids.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Renting a house is very practical if you are traveling with a large family. With laundry facilities, new appliances, two bathrooms, private hot tub, and sleeping for 8, it makes for a comfortable stay that is much more affordable than a hotel suite. In addition, it is a short walk to several restaurants and coffee shops such as Starbucks, Applebees, Red Mesa (authentic Mexican), PDQ, and World of Beer.
