About Siman Halim

Hello :)

My name is Siman Halim, I moved to St Pete area in 1995, and fall in love with downtown St Pete instantly. I graduated from UCLA and worked my first job in Santa Barbara. After 5 years in Santa Barbara, I received another job opportunity to move to Florida. In my last 14 years, I have acquired a few properties to sell & buy, but I decided to keep this very special property for myself to retire. In the last 6 months, this cottage has gone completely made over from inside out. I always like a modern sleek looking style, with the help of my biz partner Taylor, my modern cottage finally came true. I moved to Baltimore due to a job relocation in March 2010; but somehow, I will make my way back to downtown St Pete area. In the mean time, enjoy my dream cottage & sunshine Florida for me. Thank you for your interest!

Siman Halim purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Siman Halim chose St. Petersburg

This property is very central located and only a short walk to Crescent Lake, tennis court and a mile walk to downtown Central. The cottage is setting back and very quiet. The bedroom & living room overlooking a courtyard with water fountain. There's a small private rear deck overlooking bamboo trees.

What makes this cottage unique

The Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage from March 1 thru March 31, 2017. We absolutely loved our stay. The cottage was very modern, tastefully decorated and clean. It was very quiet with little street noise. If we needed anything one phone call to Simon or his assistant and it was there. We had two small yorkie's (dogs) and the courtyard was fenced in with room for them to play and we did not have to worry about them getting lost. The cottage has a romantic feel and we hope to stay again on our next trip to Florida. Simon is the best.

Well-equipped unique rental property

  • 5 of 5

My husband, I and our 2 rat terriers thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Siman's unique rental property for the month of Feb. It is tastefully furnished and has a modern, well-equipped kitchen which we enjoyed cooking in. The bedroom is large with a walk-in closet and the bathroom is great with a wonderful walk-in shower. The neighbourhood is terrific and the brick roads are lined with historic bungalows. What was most important was that the neighbourhood was safe and my dogs were secure in his rental when we weren't there. We loved our daily walks especially the dogs to the fabulous Crescent Lake and historic Round Lake. We were within walking distance of the Northeast Animal Hospital which we visited and highly recommend. Siman was very helpful and responsive in our communication with him. I highly recommend this rental to anyone interested in exploring historic uptown St. Petersburg.

romantic stay at modern cottage

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed for a week at this cottage. Parking was easy for the two cars. The interior and exterior is exactly what is described. Modern, clean

and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking, which we did lots of. A Starbucks is in walking distance. Laundry is

available onsite. Quite street and very quite in our cottage. I will book this again for our next stay. We absolutely loved the cottage. It

felt like a home with a safe feeling. The owner responded quickly with a few questions that we had ,great customer service.

Did not know exactly what to expect, but once we got there we were pleasantly surprised. We also had our dog with us (Jack Russell) who seemed to be at home right away. Every little detail was taken care of. If you happened to leave something, have no fear as Siman had it all taken care of with some small samples and extras to get you started. Seems he had thought of everything you would possibly need. The space itself was perfect for my wife and I. The courtyard was incredible for relaxing after a long day out. You cannot go wrong with this spot. We only stayed 4 nights but look forward to getting this spot again on our next visit for a longer period of time. Thank you Siman for everything!!!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a gem. It manages to feel simultaneously spacious and cozy, and everything inside felt easy, clean, and modern. Many things (coffee, restaurants, salons, and a gym) are a short walk from the cottage, and downtown is a 4-minute drive (or a 20-30 minute walk). Siman and Danice were both friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Modern Cottage. The location was perfect for us. Walking distance to Starbucks, Crescent Lake, Old Northeast, The Vinoy dog park and waterfront, museums etc. The Cottage was well appointed and very comfortable and quiet. Siman is a terrific and responsive host. Would stay again in a heartbeat. JZ from Pittsburgh.
