Welcome to Saint Petersburg the Sunshine city

If you are looking for a place from which you can explore and enjoy all Florida has to offer while coming home at night to relax in a charming cozy Florida cottage, look no further, you have found it.

Ideally situated in one of Florida’s most sought-after and picturesque neighborhoods, surrounded by multi-million-dollar mansions, our villa is a short drive away from the tantalizing white-sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico and from the acclaimed restaurants, boutique shops, and cultural attractions of the City of St. Petersburg (including its famous Dali Museum).

Why settle for Miami or other hyped up tourist-packed destinations, if you can have it all in one place? St. Petersburg is one of those rare cities that balances big city-caliber museums with the unparalleled beauty of nature.

  • Lots of sunshine Located in the heart of the “Sunshine City,” our villa enjoys an average of 361 days of clear skies per year. According to the Guinness book of world records, St. Petersburg holds the record for the most consecutive days of sunshine in the world with 768 beginning in 1967!
  • Immaculate unspoiled beaches on the Gulf of Mexico, a short distance from the house, including two of the top ten rated beaches in America (Fort De Soto Park and Sand Key parks).  There are no buildings or man-made constructions spoiling the surroundings. Just you, the birds, dolphins, warm water, and soft powdery sand tickling your feet. Once you try it, you will never go back to other beaches on the eastern seaboard around the Miami area.
  • Day-trips. You can plan day-trips to countless locations: Tampa and its famous zoo, aquarium and amusement park (Busch Garden) are all just half an hour away. A little farther out, DisneyWorld, Universal Studio and everything else Orlando has to offer can be reached in under an hour and a half from the house.
  • Culture and fine dining.  world-class art museums: The Dali Museum houses the      largest collection of Salvador Dali’ s works outside of his native Spain., the Chihuly and Fine Arts museum

In the evening, you can head downtown St Pete (15 minutes by bike or 5 minutes by car) where you will find a wide variety of shops, boutiques, outstanding restaurants and bars facing the marina. Far from being a lackluster retirement community, downtown St Pete is brimming with concerts, festivals, sports events (such as the Honda Grand Prix), outdoor farmers markets There is simply always something going on.

  • Countless outdoor activities. Whether you like to go fishing, sailing, golfing, kayaking, biking, or taking a hike up the 37-mile Pinellas Trail, or simply relaxing on the beach, there is something for everyone. Our house also comes with a kayak and four bikes
  • Diverse bird and marine life. Ibises, Egrets, Great Blue Herons, Pelicans, nearly every species of wading bird, tern, gull, and shorebird are here year round.  If you go to Vinoy Park close to the house before sunset and stand near the wall facing the pier, you are very likely to see dolphins swim right up within a few feet of you.
