About the Property
2 Bedroom 2 Bath Bayside Residence In Fantastic Central Location
Our Bayside retreat is located in one of St. Petersburg's most desirable neighborhoods, 'The Old Northeast', and is ideally situated just a few blocks from The Tampa Bay waterfront, restaurants and bars, shopping, sailing, The Dali museum, the Muvico Theatre complex, live music venues, beautiful North Shore Park, vintage markets, the historic Vinoy hotel and a continuous string of green parks that wind along the seven-mile waterfront and is home to many special events and festivals throughout the year.
The 2 bedroom, 2 bath residence is warm and welcoming and situated in family friendly 'Historic Old Northeast', a neighborhood of charming brick streets, palm trees, historic homes and the waterfront. The main bedroom has a queen-sized bed and provides a tranquil night’s sleep - simple and uncluttered - while the second serene bedroom is bathed in lots of natural light during the day, has a full-sized futon bed, a basket of books for kids and adults and a desk area. Both bedrooms are located upstairs.
The kitchen is compact but with all necessary equipment including a dishwasher, oven and stove, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker and all the kitchen essentials needed to make your stay comfortable.
Your home away from home is just steps from St. Petersburg's Beach Drive which anchors downtown shopping, dining and entertainment districts that include outdoor cafes and restaurants, world class museums and an array of shops, galleries, and businesses that line the city’s pedestrian-friendly streets.
We are only a 15-20 minute drive from The Gulf of Mexico and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. With an average temperature of 73.6 degrees, St. Petersburg records 361 sunny days which means you can enjoy the beach almost anytime of the year.
Our lovely apartment offers an authentic taste of the city right outside your door.

About the owner: Live simply, live lovely this has always been my motto and St. Petersburg offers just this lifestyle! Our family loves spending time together to enjoy the things we love with the people we love. We recently made St. Petersburg our home to do just that. We hope you will find your time here in St. Pete full of simple pleasures and wonderful experiences.
Why the Owner Chose Historic Old Northeast, Saint Petersburg, FL, USA:
If you believe in serendipity you'll love this story! We stayed at the Vinoy Hotel a couple of years ago and fell in love with this area, in particular our neighborhood, The Old Northeast. The laid back lifestyle, the stunning waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the Tampa Bay Waterfront, and the sense of community are just a few of the qualities that we love in our new city. Last Summer we decided to rent a home to see if we could really live here. We knew almost immediately we would make St. Pete our home sooner than later. A few months after returning home to Orlando, we enlisted the help of a wonderful realtor. We told her we wanted a small home, with outdoor space, and a garage apartment. The hard part was that we had fallen in love with the location of the home we had rented that Summer. The proximity to every place we loved was ideal for our family. We basically gave our realtor a very small area in which to find us a home. As fate would have it, we ended up purchasing the home right next door to the home we had rented in the Summer. Perfect home in a perfect location!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love our home and the garage apartment. Not only are they both lovely and charming but nothing beats walking out of your door and being able to walk everywhere. Walking outside the door and down the street and seeing a view of the Bay is priceless. We are most certainly 'HOME' and we are sure you will feel the same way during your stay!
