St. Petersburg bungalow description

NEWS FLASH!!! CHECK OUT OUR OTHER NEWLY RENOVATED COTTAGE, 'The Cottage at Coffee Pot Bayou, Property #3807895' Or call Us for details.

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.

              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.
