Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Jay and I moved from Washington DC in 2006 to St. Petersburg to be near aging family members. Jay is a retired military officer; we both come from long-time careers from both overseas and in Washington DC. We now own and operate our own business as senior move managers where we help the elder population relocate. We've both served on our neighborhood association board--Jay most recently as the association president. We are very active in the St. Petersburg community; are members of the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce, and the Women's Chamber of Commerce, the downtown Episcopal Cathedral, and enjoy all that St. Petersburg has to offer.
Why the Owner Chose St. Petersburg: We chose Historic Old Northeast in 2007 to live because of its eclectic charm and history and location to so many great places all within walking distance--marinas, boat ramps, live theater, yacht club, the renown Vinoy Hotel and Resort, Saturday morning market, many restaurants and nightlife venues, and museums, and sports venues like Tropicana Field where the Tampa Bay Rays play. This neighborhood is neighbor-friendly and family-friendly. It's very active and social. Downtown St. Petersburg has its 'First Friday' which is a free outdoor concert gathering. There are many concerts held in the nearby parks to include live musicians, food and art festivals and so many more.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: We bought our home in 2007 because of its old historic charm (1925) with its front porch swing, brick patio, and the detached guest studio which was recently converted (October 2013) from private use to a vacation home to travelers and business professionals to St. Petersburg. The Palm Suite Retreat is immaculate, nicely furnished with great comfort and quality in mind. The kitchen offers a large size wall mounted microwave, 4 burner stove, large refrigerator, new kitchenware chosen to match the Palm Suite Retreat theme of the studio. The owners live in the main house on the property and can provide any information needed about activities and events in St. Petersburg.
