St. Petersburg townhome description

You are welcome to come enjoy my Florida retreat! You'll have 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, and a private patio. There is WiFi, fax, two flat screen TVs, one with full digital cable and a blue ray player. I'm confident you will be comfortable here.

One of the 3 bedroom has a queen bed, and one has two twin beds. The master bedroom has a split king bed, which is two XL twins that can be joined together to make a king (Just let us know your preference.) Both beds are memory foam and adjustable. The master bath consists of a vanity open to the bedroom and a separate room for the toilet and shower. The stainless and granite kitchen is fully equipped. In addition to ample living space, you will have a private patio with palm and orange trees.

The community has a shared pool and is across the street from a large park with many amenities. Publix, Walmart and many restaurants are within about three miles. The Boyd Hill Nature area is nearby and you are within about 10 minutes of some prize winning beaches. Downtown St Pete is beautiful and exciting. Some of the major attractions are the Dali and the Chihuli museums, and the Pier. St Pete's Beach and Fort Desoto are minutes away. Dolphin cruises are a must do!

I am always available by phone and Stephen, my local manager, is available for any on-site problems.

One thing I love about this development is that it is very quiet. It is not near any busy streets or freeways and is surrounded by a large park, a high school, and a large church complex And yet, it is within 2 miles of access to I275, the Bayway Bridge, and the majestic Sunshine Skyway Bridge. Another attraction of this neighborhood is the abundance of natural vegetation and the friendly neighbors.

You will have a reserved parking space right outside your door and there is ample guest parking. Public transportation routes are 4 blocks away in either direction. The Tampa and Sarasota airports are right on 75/275. The St Petersburg/Clearwater airport is also easy to get to.

                      Car: Necessary

                      This is a quiet residential area-no heavy tourist traffic or noise to contend with. Yet I275 is about 2 miles away.

                      There is a large park across the street, Lake Vista, which has a fitness zone, fitness trail, skate park, basketball courts, tennis courts, playground, and a dog park. Maximo Park, on the bay, is 2 miles away and has a marina, a beach, a covered playground, a disc golf course, and more.

                      Twin Brooks is the nearest public golf course. It is located at 3800 22nd Ave S, which is about 10 minutes away. It is a 18 hole, par 3 course with a driving range.

                      There is a public library one mile away on Roy Hanna Dr at about 24 St. Also in this area is a Dollar Store and a Subway restaurant.

                      Downtown St Pete is about 10 minutes away, either by I275 or a leisurely drive up MLK Blvd. There you will find The Pier, the Dali Museum, the Chihuli Museum, and much, much more.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2014

                      Why the Owner Chose St. Petersburg:
                      My little dog, Chico, and I discovered St Pete through a vacation rental. We have driven down from Minnesota the past couple winters and rented about a mile from this townhouse. This past winter I decided to buy so I could spend more time here. I fell in love with Whisper Wood because of it's quiet, mature Florida vegetation, and the two level townhouses. Fixing it up and renting it has been so satisfying that I decided buy another unit in the same complex to live in.
