Great place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

Clean, comfortable and quiet and plenty of room for everyone. We especially enjoyed sitting on the porch on the second floor. The kitchen is very well equipped. Close to everything and the owner is very responsive and accommodating.

My friends and I stayed at Kassies house and loved it. The house has a historic feel, was very clean and nicely furnished. It is close to the town center. I’d stay there again.

Great VRBO ! Very comfortable, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The Big House! We stayed with friends and the house was large enough to accommodate all 6 of us. The Kitchen is large and modern. Three bathrooms conveniently placed made our stay very comfortable. This house is located very close to beautiful shops and a wide variety of local restaurants.

The Big House St. Pete

  • 4 of 5

Dear Kassie,

We loved our stay at the Big House. We were in town for a family event and chose the house over a nearby hotel. It was so pleasant sitting outside on the porches and having comfortable beds to sleep in. We felt completely safe and enjoyed the proximity to the Vinoy and down town Saint Pete. Thank you so much for our stay.
