About: Michael and I are huge foodies, love to travel, love our family and God. We feel very blessed to have been able to travel all over the world and experience some amazing sites and flavors. Some of our most incredible travels have been to Thailand, Romania, and Guatemala on mission trips to serve orphans and the needy. We feel like God has provided us this home not only as business, but a blessing to those who need a place of refuge and rest...we hope and pray that everyone who stays here will feel the priceless peace of God that we know and enjoy. We will use our proceeds to help orphaned and needy children both locally and internationally. Check out: www.4kidswcf.org this is an organization near to our hearts.
Why St. Petersburg: There's no place quite like St Pete to us. We LOVE it!! So for many years we have dreamed of owning our own little vacation rental here like the ones we've stayed in all over the globe...where you get a feeling of warmth and comfort you just can't get in a hotel room. When we first walked into this home it had such charm and character, and it's location put it super close and convenient to everything cool about St Pete...we knew all it needed was a little love and special touches to stand out among the market here. And we think it does.
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow: This home is one short block from a gorgeous lakefront park that has been one of our favorite spots in St Pete since we married. It has been our go to Picnic Spot for 13 years. So, when we drove by on the way to the park and saw the for sale sign we turned around immediately! REALLY close to EVERYTHING you'd want to see and do in the St Pete and Tampa Bay area. It's 4 min. to downtown, 15 minutes to Tampa International Airport, 20 min. to St Pete Beach, and just about anything you want is a very quick walk or drive from here. Everything is brand new, super stylish, and very comfortable. We have tried to make this a place everyone would enjoy and so far anyone who's seen it wants to move in :-) Come see for yourself.
