There’s a lot to see in St. Petersburg and there’s no better time or place to experience some true local color than by visiting the St. Petersburg Shuffleboard Club.

Home to the largest, most comprehensive collection of Salvador Dali’s work in America, The Dali Museum has partnered with The Walt Disney Family Museum to announce “Disney and Dalí: Architects of the Imagination.”
Where to Eat:
St. Petersburg’s rapidly growing foodie scene goes well beyond seafood. The Gulf Coast’s Locale Market measures a whopping 20,000 square feet, while Brick & Mortar, a farm to fork restaurant with a rustic setting, and Frenchy’s, sited on the beach, are other must-visits.
In the heart of St. Petersburg, The Canopy comes complete with private cabanas and fire pits. Enjoy the surrounding views of Tampa Bay while sipping on one of their seasonal cocktails.

About Richard Miller
Welcome to about me. I was born, raised and educated in New York and have resided in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Long Island. Throughout my career I have had the pleasure of always dealing with the public. With a new college degree in horticulture in hand , I opened and owned a chain of three Florist / Garden Centers for 11 years. I have always loved the earth and the bounty of beauty it provides in nature. Entering the airline travel business, I have traveled extensively throughout Europe and the United States for 20 years. As a travel professional, I had the opportunity in meeting people from all over the globe and assisting them with any number of requests and needs. After discovering St. Petersburg over 35 years ago, I witnessed many wonderful changes. Now I am thrilled to call the city of St. Petersburg my home. My spouse and I over several years have acquired, improved and beautified some rental properties. I do hope to have the opportunity of having you as our Guest and to make your stay as comfortable and pleasurable as possible. You will find everything you need in our Suite. Every attention to detail has been taken to ensure your stay is above and beyond the rest. WELCOME to ST. PETE
Richard Miller purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Richard Miller chose Saint Petersburg
We fell in love with this property due to its charm and close proximity to the beaches and downtown. The Old Northeast is a lovely area of older Bungalows and estates. Next to my architecturally sweet craftsman bungalow, sits my triplex building where the Palm Arbor Suite is housed. Both buildings either have porches, balconies or front patios which is in keeping to our neighborhood, where you can spend time reading, people watching or chatting with neighbors and friends. The buildings have been renovated extensively but they have kept their original charm I fell in love with.
What makes this Apartment unique
Walking distance to downtown and all which St. Petersburg has to offer. A designer kitchen you won't find in any other rental at this price. An ideal location for everything the area has to offer. Having patios and off street parking is a pleasure for our guests.

Amazing, amazing and amazing
It was a vacation that will be remembered by me And my wife. This little cute place was what we needed to relax and just soak in to the St.Pete local atmosphere. Our host Richard and his amazing property were the links that connected us with every experience we had there. Friendliness, positivism, wellcoming faces, good food and good weather. What else is there to ask for? Love. Love was present as well. Thank you Richard and St.Pete for having us. We will see you soon again.
Wowza, Wowza, Wowza!
Thanks for the incredible review..... it’s guests like you that make my efforts so worthwhile. It also helps to have all the Suite amenities in such a great location and City.
I hope you both will return soon. I know you got hooked by the St. Pete vibe as you were always on the move. So nice to see that. Glad you took me up on some of my recommendations.
Thanks for taking the time to write such a rave review.
All the best.
Hidden gem! Beautiful
Greeted by Richard as we arrived. He gave us all tips to the area and the apartment. We wants for nothing. Every convenience was at our fingertip. The place looked like it was decorated by a designer. Walkable to downtown and surrounding park.
First folks, STOP and cross your fingers that this Owner has an opening (look at his other properties also). Barr none I have never had such fabulous treatment. That said it’s everything and more. The day one personal Meet n Greet was so wonderful. Went above and beyond on special touches to make my stay even more special. Absolutely loved the Tropical setting (word caution sprinklers may catch you heading out for an early morning walk-but felt refreshing). They provided some awesome spots to eat, told me to go to the Fresh Market (best I’ve ever been to). I’ve never stayed at a VRBO where I felt I came in a stranger and left feeling like a Friend! I wanted this little Studio or his one bedroom next door to move in permanently! I will suggest this Owners properties should any of my Family or Friends want a break. I felt at Home immediately and so will you. Sorry if my little Angel did a bit of barking, her way of saying Thank You for letting me vacation with my Mommy!!!! Thank you so much I’m overly appreciative and excited on this rental!!!! Love love love
Fantastic-beautiful setting, convenient, and super comfortable
Everything you dream of having in a modern-era apartment, I found in this very cute studio near downtown St. Pete. Amazingly it all fit in there. The place was super quiet (I'm a light sleeper), extremely well equipped (I'm a gourmet cook), and the hosts very attentive (I travel a lot). Bottom line, it is much more than what it is described as in the ad. The foliage is exceptional offering total privacy, and the cute little garden very European and classy. You have your own off-street parking which you most definitely want in NE St. Pete. Walking distance to Starbucks, less than a mile from Trader Joe's, and a short walk down to the waterfront park system. I loved the whole experience and would highly recommend it.
Thanks so much for being a guest with us. I appreciate you taking the time to write such a pleasant review. I agree our location to everything here in St Petersburg is the best. The Old Northeast is the most coveted place to live due to its close proximity to all.
Yes I tried to carefully furnish the Suite with comfort and an eye for little details and furnishings everyone needs in a vacation rental.
Such gratification that you had such a lovely time here, and such a pleasure meeting you.
Perfectly located this property is in the middle of it all!!!
This property is located in the middle of everything. Especially if you are looking for more than just the beach scene. With just a minutes walk to downtown, you are in the heart of the city with almost anything your looking to do. It is a great place to getaway with all the convienince to do whatever your heart pleases.
Richard met us just a little after we arrived and made sure we had everything we needed. We even texted him a couple of times during the week to ask for recommendations on places to go. He gave us thoughtful recommendations that would probably be more informative than most St. Pete's vacation guides. When it comes to your stay, don't worry if you forget anything because Richard has thought of it all. Everything and I mean everything is there in case you need it. He completely sets the standard as it relates to customer service. I only wish that he could own every property that we visit in our future. We will certainly be staying at his place again!!
I've got to say this is one of the nicest reviews I've had the pleasure of receiving. Thanks so much for the kind words. Nice to know the little details are appreciated. I've traveled extensively in my careers and always reflect back on what would have made my stays a bit more special. So you find my version of what I consider special at Palm Arbor Suites".
I look forward to your return. I only wish I could have added a bit more Sunshine to your stay while you were here. I'll see what I can do with the weather next time.......
Clean and very nice decoration and landscaping.
Attention paid to detail and any requests.
It is a short, pleasant walk to parks, beaches, and the lively, active Beach Drive.
