Interaction with guests
I give my guests space but am available when needed. Once we have settled you in if there is anything you need help with we are only a phone call or text away. Please bear in mind that my husband and I both have day/night jobs... so might not be at hand immediately. We live 15mins away so would do our best to assist you needs ASAP. There is a binder on the kitchen table which has information about places to grocery shop, beaches, musical venues, restaurants, theaters and many more places you might like to visit.

You’ll also definitely want to take advantage of this home’s convenient location to the beach, as it is just a short drive from St. Petersb
Getting around
It is recommended that you rent a car if possible. The property has a car port which can hold 2 cars. The city requires all additional cars to be parked on the other side of the street.

The Looper Downtown Trolley Ride is a great way to see the best attractions downtown for just a quarter. The drivers are humorous and full of knowledge about all the attractions and historic buildings in the area. They will drive by or stop by all of these attractions, so this is a great option for newcomers to get familiar with downtown quickly in a fun atmosphere. Daily Service between the hours of 10am and 5pm. Service is every 15 minutes. The last 30 minute trip leaves The Pier at 4:30pm.
