About Jennifer & Brian
Hi! We've lived in Florida for the past 18 years having moved here from Newport, RI. I graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelor of Science in Consumer Affairs. I've worked in Real Estate, Social Services and Staffing/Recruiting. I enjoy traveling, meeting new people, reading, cooking and going to the beach! My husband, Brian, is a Mechanical Engineer. He graduated from the University of South Florida. He enjoys bike riding, boating, ping pong, all things related to cars & working on his inventions!
Jennifer & Brian purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Jennifer & Brian chose Historic Old Northeast
My husband and I bought this property because we love the 'old world' charm of the neighborhood with its' brick streets and architecture. The neighborhood is filled with Craftsman style homes as well as Tudors, Mediterranean Revivals, Colonials, American Four Squares and others. We love that we can walk to our favorite restaurants, shops and entertainment! This neighborhood is like a New England town with Palm Trees but without the cold weather!
What makes this Cottage unique
This is a single level cottage so there won't be any stairs to navigate except 2 steps onto the front porch. There is a private parking spot behind the cottage. It has central AC/Heat (no window shakers)! Easy walk to downtown and the waterfront with it's own small beach! You'll also enjoy a private washer/dryer right in the cottage. A horse drawn carriage can pick you up right at the cottage door (a unique benefit to this neighborhood) and tour you around the neighborhood and/or take you downtown and drop you off at dinner! So fun!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Perfect vacation spot
This was the best VRBO stay my family and I have taken. The owner had great communication and provided guides on local restaurants and things to do. She went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and welcomed. The location was close to downtown St Pete and easy driving to Gulf and Bay Area beaches. The cottage was comfortable and well-equipped, with a well-stocked kitchen and fast wi-fi. We’ll be returning in the future!
Very nice and stratigic location.
Wonderfull. Nice area, close to the Beach,Rest and Downtoun. Jennifer provided excelent customer service.
Very convenient and livable unit
Jennifer and Brian do a great job of maintaining this unit. It has everything you need for your stay and is very clean. They also respond quickly to any problems and for us that wa s tv and ac. Tv accessible within minutes and ac in a few hours. It has a cute porch and patio with no real view but it’s quiet and comfortable. We walked and biked everywhere including downtown, museums, parks, waterfront, swimming, tennis, movies, shopping, etc. Old northeast is a quaint neighborhood that is shaded, safe, and highly walkable. Beaches are a 20 minute drive but there is one small beach within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay. It is as pictured.
We appreciate you choosing our cottage for your vacation. I'm so glad you liked it! No, there isn't any 'view' but the private fenced in courtyard with plantings and furniture makes it a relaxing peaceful place to hang out. Hope to see you again! Warm regards, Jennifer

Everywhere is perfect !
We would like to return sometime
Thanks so much for choosing our cottage! We are glad you enjoyed it. Kind regards, Jennifer
We had a wonderful week in St. Pete. This neighborhood is so close to everything we love about St Pete. We were able to walk to downtown where there are a ton of things to do. We rented bikes , caught a wonderful Jazz concert at the Palladium, great restaurants all easily within walking distance . St Pete beach was a 10-15 minute drive or you could walk right down to the bay from this adorable cottage and be at a beach. Brian and Jen were the nicest hosts you could hope for. This cottage had everthing we needed to be comfortable and allowed us the privacy of a home away from home. So happy with our choice and plan to return again. Thanks for a great week.
Hi Patty & Ed,
I'm so glad you found our cottage on HomeAway and stayed with us! It was fun to get a chance to visit with you both. Looking forward to seeing you both again.

Just perfect for a short stay while our condo was being remodeled.
Wonderful little cottage. Well appointed from the kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom. Great location for downtown St. Pete activities. Extremely clean and quiet, central AC that really cools and a king size bed - all that were important to us. As a bonus the hosts Jen and Brian live on the property so response to any issues are immediate, not to mention how friendly and helpful they are. We would stay here again!
Thank you for the kind review. I'm so glad the property met your needs and expectations. I hope you are getting settled in nicely to your condo since the renovations. We wished we could have seen you more! Maybe we'll run into you downtown. Thanks for staying!

The city also offers many museums, a couple of live theaters, 2 small beaches, tons of independent shops, a huge art scene, the best nightlife in the area, and a ton of sport options from Professional Baseball games and Soccer games to lawn bowling and volleyball!
