This beautiful 1930's Colonial Cape Cod style cottage is located in one of the most desirable and historic neighborhoods of St Petersburg: Coffee Pot Bayou. This home has just been completely renovated inside and out with brand new everything! If you liked our first Cottage (property #3655248), this one is even nicer. See the Reviews on that property to see how we treat our guest, since this one is brand new and don't have reviews just yet.
Just 2 short blocks to the very scenic and prestigious waterfront of Coffee Pot Bayou where you can stroll, jog, or ride bikes along the rambling waterfront to downtown St Pete. This is an awesome place to kayak or paddle board too.
This cottage has 3 bedrooms. One bedroom that has a posh boutique look done in grey/yellow/white. The 2nd Bedroom is black/white/teal...This room has a great view plus it has a TV if you want to watch something different in your bedroom. Finally the 3rd bedroom is more of a beachy look with bright colors of blue/green/white, with a beautiful view of the very tropical back yard and pool area. Besides the decorator pillows there are 4 fluffy pillows for each bed. The linens in all bedrooms are of the finest quality and you won't want to get out of bed. For your comfort we provide 'The Cottage' Robes and slippers for adults to use while you are our guests. There is one and a half bathrooms. The main bathroom has an old fashioned claw foot tub with oil rubbed bronze finishing touches and a spa appeal. This room is in grey/black/white. The half bath is perfect for a pool bath as it's close by when needed.
The living room has beautiful furnishings in espresso dark woods with leather sofa and chairs. Coordinating dining room and desk furniture in the surrounding areas make it feel super warm and inviting. The office at the front of house is the perfect place for reading or doing some needed online work at the desk provided. The kitchen has granite counters with new appliances. You'll love that it is well equipped...we love to cook so we tried to not forget anything. There is also a really nice front loading washer/dryer for your convenience that has new and updated features like 'steam'. *We use mainly chemical free, non-toxic, Green cleaners in our Cottage.
As you step out the back door, you will find yourself in a tropical oasis like you would see in the finest resorts...but it's your own private space while you are our guests. The yard is beautifully landscaped with all sorts of lush plants and palm trees. After a day of exploring St Pete, you can relax in the ambiance of the custom built TIKI HUTS which are lit with delicate string lights and enjoy some mood setting island music through the built in speakers and Bluetooth stereo. This is all situated on an an extra large, newly pavered patio area that surrounds the gorgeous salt water pool and heated spa that has a pebble tech finish. This outdoor area offers many options for relaxing, from the dining area and lounging area which are under the cover of the TIKI Huts or chaise lounges and reading areas for your enjoyment. There's plenty of full sun or shaded areas...your choice. There is a gorgeous natural-gas stone fire pit area with super cool chairs to hang out after hours. Also, a new gas grill that is plumbed so you will never run out of gas while you're cooking your burgers or steaks. But we must warn you, you may not want to leave this beautiful tropical oasis to see all that the Saint Petersburg area offers! You can walk out the front door and within a few steps be at one of the areas most beautiful waterfront paths that leads to Downtown St Pete. On this super scenic path you will find parks, tennis courts, children's play area, and maybe a dolphin or manatee. Or you can hop in your car and be in the coolest waterfront downtown area in all of Florida in just 4-5 minutes. With sailboats lining the waterfront there is panoramic 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 20-25 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. Within walking distance around the cottage you will find a farmers market, spa, ice cream and frozen yogurt shops, many eateries, yoga, health food stores, and bike shops...just to name a few :-) We'd love to make this the best vacation you've ever had...so, 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. We bought our first Cottage last year and got such great responses that we decided to do it again. It's been a long held dream of ours to find a home in the Coffee Pot Bayou and Old NE area...it's just our favorite place for it's unique homes and waterfront areas so close to downtown. We've been strolling through this neighborhood for easily 14 years.
When Kimberly first saw this home listed she knew immediately this would be perfect in so many ways, but Michael wasn't easily convinced...he couldn't see past the visual of the inside and outside which needed lots of love if it would be suitable for an upscaled vacation rental. Kimberly, could see the possibilities and asked him to trust her vision....thankfully he did! The location was the main selling point for us...2 short blocks to COFFEE POT BAYOU!!! Also, close to everything cool about St Pete...This was WHY.
Now we just needed to add the special touches that would make it stand out and we think it does :-))
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Besides the proximity to Coffee Pot Bayou and Downtown St Pete this home is one short block to the famous Trader Joes, and within a couple blocks are a farmers market, Ice Cream/Frozen Yogurt, Spa, bike shop, health food store, and many eateries. It's 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, 20 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.
