Brand New Vintage Home in The Heart of St Petersburg
This true luxury level Florida style vacation home was created with comfort in mind. Our level of comfort required premium Organic Zen Haven "dust mite free" beds and bedding, chemical free pure whole home water system, quiet Haiku ceiling fans, upscale decor, high end appliances with fully stocked kitchen, relaxing, bright, and cheerful atmosphere with all of the conveniences of home like large TVs, high-speed internet, work stations that inspire, and cable tv with DVR. Although this homes interior has recently been updated the decor reflects the modern-vintage side of Florida harking back to 1925 in which the year this home was built. Villa Villa Keki is located on the fringe of northern downtown right across from a great coffee shop called Kahwa which is an excellent location because you can walk straight for 3 blocks and hit the Sundial which has a very nice upscale market. Just beyond this you will hit Central Ave which is full of vibrant bars and restaurants. If you can head east towards the Vinoy Hotel (on the same street) a few blocks you hit the start of Beach Drive where again you'll find tons of great shops, dining, and entertainment, not to mention the water which is beautiful for exercise, walks, or just hanging out.
St.Petersburg Florida is home to more bungalows than anywhere else in the continental U.S. Our restored home is a classic 2 story with the upper sleeping porches converted into living space as A/C is now common place. The Florida Bungalow is not with out architectural quirks and our has one low spot in the stairway that lowers the height to approximately 5’6” so if you’re taller than this you will have to dip. We debated whether or not to have this removed during renovations but felt it would change the entire interior therefore destroying the classic charm.

About kim Levell
Wife, mother, designer, and lover of nature. I was raised in Florida and truly love all of the wonderful things you can do outside year round as well as everything downtown St. Petersburg has to offer.
kim Levell purchased this House in 2002
Why kim Levell chose Saint Petersburg
As mentioned in the description we wanted a home away from home now that we reside in NC as well as a place where we truly felt like we were on vacation thus all of the vintage Florida touches like the collected orange crate labels from my sisters father in-law who was a grove owner in Odessa, Fl. We also have had a ton of experience with vacation rentals and found them to be outdated, uncomfortable, and very cheap in terms of kitchen wares so we wanted to appeal to cliental who like to live in a more upscale environment albeit this home is quaint at 1600sf. I also wanted a home to stay in that I knew was safe from most environmental toxins and offered clean water not only to bath in but to drink.
