Why Dennis Jones chose Historic Uptown

Perfect location in Historic Uptown Neighborhood. Within walking distance to the heart of bustling downtown St. Petersburg but located in quiet, suburban neighborhood. Quick access to Tampa to the east and Sarasota to the south.

Great spot in downtown St Pete

Stayed at this location for an extended period of time and really enjoyed it. Has all the amenities you’ll need and is in a prime location. Dennis was a fantastic host. Would stay here again.

Nice little place. Everything we needed was there. Not too much to do in the neighborhood.

Dirty and disappointing

  • 1 of 5

The place could be very charming with a lot of cleaning and some exterior repairs.

The apartment was pretty much as depicted in the photos. We did not expect luxury, modern accommodations, shabby chic is fine with us as long as it is clean. This place was just shabby and dirty.

It was so disappointing, as Dennis was very prompt in responding to any questions we had prior to our arrival. He was also quick to respond when the bathroom light was not working (he installed new bulbs) and provided the cleaning supplies I requested in order to wash the floor. I can't believe we are being charged a cleaning fee! There are too many things to mention here and I will write him a letter directly to detail our issues.

Sorry to say this Dennis, but we have rented many short term properties over the years and this was by far the worst. We gave it one star because I couldn't submit this review without a rating.

Central location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was confortable for the two of us, the kitchen is well equipped, there are even some good stuff you need on hand like salt, sugar, coffee, spices, etc.

The apt. was clean inside but outside at the porche was very dusty so couldn't use .

Main highways are near by and driving to the beach is only 15 min.

Definitely will want the same rental for next trip.

The rental was hidden in a quiet area, but just a few minutes from down town. It had everything we needed.
