900 sq ft bungalow with an open floor plan. We love to walk and if you do too this a great space for you. 10 minute walk to Crescent Lake park, 12 min to Starbucks, 17 min Tampa Bay and 20-25 minute walk to downtown St. Pete. Bright & Clean!

The space

This is our future retirement home. My husband and I purchased this 100 year old bungalow in February 2015 and have been slowly renovating it so please don't expect it to be perfect, because it definitely is not - but it's super cute!!

Not all the rooms have new paint, some need trim put up on the ceilings, appliances are not new, etc.

It is clean and it is comfortable and the location is super awesome!

Guest access

You will have the entire house.

There is a laundry room outside in the back of the house with a washer/dryer. Because we do visit often there isn't a ton of availability but we're happy to have you there when we're off doing other things!

There is a small backyard that is not quite usable. We will be adding an addition to the house so we haven't fixed it up at all.

Interaction with guests

We will not be available to come visit with you during your stay but I am available via phone/email/text consistently.

Other things to note

Of course there is wifi!

There is no cable TV but we do have an antennae and the TV gets in most local channels - a total of about 10. It is also a smart TV so it's set up to access Netflix and Hulu. We also have Apple TV.

There are actually two full bathrooms but everyone gets a better shower if they are taken one at a time so we only listed the second bathroom as a half bath.

If you would like to bring your dog please let us know when you are inquiring about your dates.

Well behaved dogs are welcome but just be aware that the fence outside is not dog escape proof - so if your dog is a runner do not let them out without a leash.

Be sure to properly protect your dog against fleas. Florida is a mecca of fleas and your dog will pick them up after just a few minutes outside.

House Rules
No smoking
No parties or events
Not safe or suitable for children (0-12 years)
Check-in is anytime after 2PM
Check out by 12PM (noon)
Self check-in with lockbox

Please no persons under the age of 12 in the home. It is in no way child proof. Renter must be 30 or older - guests 12 and over.

Of course no smoking in the house but you are welcome to step outside and smoke.

Well behaved dogs are always welcomed - please advise if you will be bringing your dog. No cats please - we are highly allergic.

Limit of four souls only in the house. This means 4 people and no pets or 3 people and one pet ... you get the idea ;) .

On the cleaning fee: I really wish this was called a maintenance fee more so than a cleaning fee. Our wonderful partner, Cara, makes sure our home is clean and maintained to ensure that each guest has the best possible experience when they come to visit. That is why we have a cleaning fee. Please don't consider this a "someone will clean up after me" fee.

When a guest leaves things untidy her work moves out of a “maintenance" mode to a “clean up after the guest" mode – this takes more time and costs more money all around.

If you and your party would kindly take care to leave the house in as close to the condition as you found it that would be greatly appreciated. For instance: cleaning and putting away dishes that you use, putting away the futon if you use it, cleaning out the coffee pot if you use it, cleaning any dishes you use, cleaning up any crumbs left behind, putting things back in their place, etc.

Stripping all beds and leaving all used linens and towels in the laundry room outside is greatly appreciated.

If you break anything or irreparably stain something (towel, linen, furniture, tablecloth, etc.) please let me know. Accidents do happen but it's no fun to find out after a guest has left.

This is a home that we cherish and we greatly appreciate your party treating it with care.

Gracias, Merci & Thank You! -debra

Very comfortable for three of us. We enjoyed our Memorial Day Weekend at Debra's summer home a lot! All was as described. It took us only 30 min to Tampa Bush Gardens and 20 min to the beach of our choice. Hope to come back one day. Thank you for having us!

Fantastic as always. Have stayed multiple times and will again. Exactly as described, which is good to know because not all places are like that.

We loved this historic home and the cute neighborhood of similar houses, all unique and in various states of renovation. Walked to Starbucks in the morning and were close to everything in the city.

Response from Debra:
Greg submitted a next day booking via Instant Booking. I cancelled the booking within 8 minutes of him submitting the reservation. My husband had told me he was going to be staying at the house an extra day and I forgot to block the calendar. I apologized and have since taken the Instant Booking option off of this listing - I don't ever want to have to do that again and I can't trust my ADD!! lol Thanks for your understanding Greg!

We loved the house. Very charming and plenty of room. Easy access to the freeway and downtown St Pete. Great for exploring. Well stocked kitchen including pantry staples. Debra was very responsive to any questions and was helpful.

One of the best places I've stayed in with AirBNB. Not fancy, but scrupulously clean and comfortable, convenient, great value and exactly as described. Understand that not every place on AirBNB is exactly as described, but this one is. Everything I needed for a few days on a business trip. I will stay there again instead of a hotel every time I visit.

Response from Debra:
Thanks so much Dave. As I said, you are in the top 1% of Air BnB guests. Our house manager, Cara, wanted to give you a hug for the great condition you left our home in. She deserves all the credit for the cleanliness. I couldn't do it without her. We look forward to your next visit! -debra
