Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: I was born in Louisiana, grew up in Puerto Rico, went to high school in New Hampshire and attended college in Colorado. I did a stint in the Peace Corps in South Korea and traveled before going back to school to earn a master's degree in journalism. I worked as a reporter and editor for about 25 years. In 2011, I bought my first vacation rental in St. Petersburg, the Yellow Hibiscus House, and managed it from Vermont, where I spent 20 years, working and raising a family. I was finally able to move down to Florida in 2014. I'm having a wonderful time managing my properties and enjoying the many things this area has to offer.
Why the Owner Chose Lakewood Estates, Saint Petersburg, FL, USA:
I bought the Yellow Hibiscus House in March 2011 from an older gentleman who lovingly maintained it for 40 years as his second residence. The first year I owned it I expanded it, landscaped the grounds, and painted the outside the cheerful yellow that gives the property its name today. I got to know St. Pete by driving around buying art, furniture and other items to make the house and property exactly as I would want it for myself.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Believe it or not I signed the contract to buy the Yellow Hibiscus House without seeing it in person. I fell in love with it from the photos on the MLS and it did not disappoint when I actually got to walk in the door. The house was in pristine condition. I love the light, the privacy, the open floor plan, the vintage design and the original tiles in the bathrooms. The minute I go inside I feel relaxed. Even though the house is very cozy, there's plenty of room for six or eight people to do their own thing. And the neighborhood is terrific. Being by the golf course and nature preserve provides many opportunities to be outdoors enjoying the weather and the wildlife.
