Thanks' to brain and staff, and the new doggie, everything was very nice.
I and my guest that came with me was very happy there.
We had noticed the upgrades to the property. We like what we saw.
When my buddy and I return it will be our fourth time. The bar/breakfast/lounge are was updated and nice. Our room was nice. Thanks again Brian for the hard work and upgrades you put into it.

Brian, the owner, was great. He was helpful and accommodating.

The rooms are okay..nothing fancy...could use some love and updating.

My biggest complaint was why an establishment that bills itself as gay house allows straight young girls to be naked around the pool. It was very awkard and uncomfortable. The day/night we spent there, a young, straight, 21 year old (she told her age) was taking advantage of the "clothing optional" option with her two gay friends. For that reason alone, I doubt we will go back. If you are gay resort, be a gay resort.

I'm sorry, no where in any of my advertising does it say we are a men only establishment. Anyone who wants a relaxed, clothing optional place to stay is welcome here. There was one straight girl, not girls, and she was visiting her two nude gay friends here. I wish you the best of luck in your travels.

Stayed a few nights recently, pool area is very nice, although the pool was very cold for a so called heated pool. Brian the owner and "urban" the dog are very good hosts. The problem here is the rooms, old, tired worn décor, a mish mash of old furniture and beds. To be honest the two rooms we had need totally gutting and starting again. Wouldn't go back until the rooms have had a major refurb.

The rooms are dumpy, the grounds over grown and old, the common areas are pleasant enough
although everything needed a good hosing down or it seemed so. The pool is great and the guests were nice which made our stay at Gay St. Pete house OK. Overall the place felt like a lower end P Town guest house with really bad sheets, old and pilled. Would have been a totally different experience with new linens, towels and a room that felt or looked clean.

Room Tip: Don't go upstairs, stay poolside or don't bother.

Thank you for the suggestions, we've change the staff and focused on cleaning the rooms better. We've also been investing a fair amount of money improving this old house. Hope you will give us another chance, Thank you! Brian

A very well run property with a helpful host. The rooms have direct access to the pool and hot tub and are a good size. The rates are fair, especially if you choose to stay a week. Also would be a great place for a weekend getaway. The location of the property is very central for shopping, cultural life, and nightlife. I'm looking forward to visiting the property again.

Brian is a delightful host
I made a last minute addition to my trip and wanted to add 2 nights in St. Petersburg
Brian responded quickly to my email inquiry - informed me what was available - and I booked my reservation shortly thereafter via phone
upon arrival I found my suite ready - the pool inviting - the fridge stocked with beverages - and a very relaxing environment

and my dog was most welcome here

definitely my destination of choice on my next visit to st. Petersburg.

Me and my partner Kim stayed at this jewel of a place for a week. We were going to stay at the Flamingo Resort for 10 days but switch here after 3 days ( What a dump ) and dirty the Flamingo is. The tea dance on Sundays was fun, but only that!
Gay St.Pete gave us a beautiful place to just relax, swim and have nice conversations with other guests.
Brian the host and owner is the best with his dog Urban, he was very friendly and helpful but not in your face all the time, you are really left alone unless to want the company. I cannot say enough about this place, Kim and I have been looking for that one place to go to, well we have found it, already booked 3 weeks next May. That's says it all! (the private parking was great!)
