Wonderful stay in St. Petersburg!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Tiki House and found the house to be very comfortable, convenient and peaceful for 2 and 3 couples. Marcel and Valerie were very gracious and helpful hosts. Unfortunately we encountered unusually cool weather during our stay in March and were a bit disappointed that the pool wasn't heated but we had a float and spent days visiting the many preserves and beaches in the St. Pete's area; De Soto County Park and Spring Training baseball in nearby Clearwater. There are many activity options in the area and easily accessible from this location. Overall we had a wonderful experience and are happy to recommend the Tiki House to both families and couples.

Great location, beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 weeks at this lovely house. It's set up nicely for a larger family. We were 4 adults (6 for a few days) and 2 children, but the space never felt cramp. The 4 bedrooms are located in the corners of the house so everyone had their own private space when needed, there are also 2 rooms with private bathrooms and a shared bathroom. The view from the backyard is beautiful and worth the price of the rent alone. The kitchen has all the amenities you need to comfortably prepare meals if you choose too. The location is very convenient to the beach or to downtown St.Petersburg. Marcel was very helpful and was easy to get in touch with. I'd recommend the house to anyone.
