St. Petersburg bungalow description

This adorable 1920's bungalow is situated on a charming red brick street in the historic Crescent Lake Park area of St Petersburg. It has been recently renovated inside and out with brand new everything!

It's so adorable that we received a call from the hit TV show 'Sweet Retreats' wanting our Cottage on their show!!! It just so happened that the dates they wanted were already booked with guest...so no show this time, but what an honor to be chosen.

Ok, back to the Cottage...It has 2 bedrooms, one bedroom that has a posh boutique look done in grey/white/teal. The linens are of the finest quality and you won't want to get out of bed. There is a walk-in closet and a desk in room. The other bedroom is more of a beachy look with bright colors of blue/green/white...again there's a walk-in closet and super comfy linens. Both bedrooms have 'The Cottage' Robes and slippers to use for your comfort. These are also for sale at a reasonable price to guest who want to own them or give them as a gift. The bathroom has an old fashioned feel with oil rubbed bronze finishing touches and a spa appeal. This room is in grey/black/white. The living room has beautiful furnishings in espresso dark woods with leather sofa and chairs. Coordinating dining room and desk furniture in this spacious area make it feel super warm and inviting. The sun room at the front of house is the perfect place for reading or napping or may be used as an extra bedroom sleeping 1 additional person. The kitchen has been recently updated with new granite. It has brand new dishwasher,microwave, and fixtures. You'll love that it is well equipped...we love to cook so we tried to not forget anything. There is also a brand new washer/dryer for your convenience. And for those of you with toddlers or small children we have a high chair, pack and play, umbrella stroller, and a bed side rail ...we've added these so you won't have to lug so much stuff on your 'relaxing' vacation :-)) *We use only chemical free, non-toxic, Green cleaners in our Cottage.

Outside the yard is beautifully landscaped and there is a new pavered patio area to grill your burgers or steaks and hang out by the fire pit. You can walk out the door and within a few steps be at one of the areas most beautiful waterfront parks with paths for walking, running, tennis courts, children's play area, and more. Or you can hop in your car and be in the neatest waterfront downtown area in all of Florida in just 4 minutes. With sailboats lining the waterfront with such visual impact, gorgeous immaculate parks, historic hotels, incredible fine dining and casual eateries abound, world class art galleries and museums, eclectic shops galore, and the best gelato anywhere! We love downtown St Pete for it's many unique and charming qualities and we know you will too. Just 15-20 minutes from the cottage you can reach Tampa International Airport or have your toes in the soft white sand of St Pete Beach or Fort Desoto Beach. You can rent kayak's, paddle boards, bikes, sailboats, motor boats, and scooters all nearby. Any special request will be considered.

                        The Boutique Cottage was just as pictured. It was welcoming and oh so comfortable! Kimberley had provided goodies for our first night and the following morning, as we arrived quite late. She stopped in to 'show us the ropes' and proved to be charming, as was her husband, Michael. I would recommend it without reservation.....Thank you, Kimberley, from Margaret & Nuala :) :)

                        This is an outstanding rental! I have rented many houses in the Tampa/St. Pete area over the past several years, and this one has been the best. Kim and Michael do a great job in preparing the house for renters -- down to the simplest things like spices, paper towels, and other items that I have had to purchase elsewhere. The house is in excellent condition and is located close to I-275 as well as 4th street and downtown St. Pete.

                        We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, well stocked cottage that was convenient to everything. All the small details were appreciated like night lights, snacks, can liners, and cleaning supplies. The description is very accurate and the owners are the greatest people you will ever meet. Early walks around the park is like going into a bird sanctuary. Comfortable beds, wonderful towels, well decorated, nice fragerances add to the enjoyment. It feels like home.

                        We were very pleased with our two week vacation at Crescent Lake Cottage. It is aptly named, since the very nice Crescent Lake Park is just a block away. The cottage was very tidy, and had every furnishing and appliance we could ask for. When we had a slight glitch with the wireless, the Wasserman's made sure the cable guy was there within a couple of hours. Some highlights of our trip, in no particular order: 1. Crescent Lake Park 2. Sunken Gardens, a small botanical getaway 3. The best Italian grocery store you could ever dream for is less than three miles down the road. 4. Beech Blvd. 4. Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa 5. Ripley Museums in Sarasota 6. Tarpon Springs 7. Myakka River State Park 8. And many more too numerous to mention.

                        Recommended for: Families with teenagers, age 55+, girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, romantic getaway, adventure seekers.

                        The Boutique Cottage is a very cosy place. A home away from home indeed. My husband & I with our three teenager had a wonderful time at the cottage. The owner provided the beddings, towels, robs, picnic basket. They even have a selection of DVDs for you to watch. Books for all ages were available. Thank you very much for the hospitality the owners extended to us. The welcome basket filled with coffee, cereals, fruits & snacks we enjoyed. The cottage was equipped with a washer, dryer, dish washer, flat iron, hairdryer & by the way internet connection. Two blocks away is the Trips Diner. We would have breakfast there almost every morning. We will surely come back & book the boutique cottage. We will also recommend The Boutique Cottage to our family & friends.

We were so nervous with everything being new how things would work and not sure if we'd thought of everything that would be needed...you were the perfect first guest and so happy you enjoyed your stay! Definitely come again and be our guest...Blessings! Kimberly and Michael

                        This cottage is both ideally located and appointed. It is evident the managers have taken steps above the ordinary and have paid great attention to detail to ensure guests feel welcome and comfortable. I predict the only difficulty for guests will be finding an open date for a return visit.

                        Manager response: Thanks Mike and Janine, You were awesome guest and helped us too in many ways....Please come back soon, there will be NEW kitchen cabinets with granite installed this month. I LOVED the way the house was left...You are always welcome to come back. Hugs! Kimberly and Michael

                      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.
