My house is 8 minutes from downtown St Petersburg. ($6-$8 by UberX to Jannus Live concert venue downtown.) Twenty minutes from to the best beaches. My favorite beach is Madeira beach, as it has plenty of parking a snack shack, and restrooms and showers.
There is a dresser, mirror, 40" smart TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime, and basic cable.
Green Room, as I call it since it has green carpet. Bedroom is on one side of a split plan house, and comes with a shared full bathroom.
Every type of store, grocery, big box, etc. close by, 4 blocks to a mile.
20 minutes from gulf beaches by car.
Guest may use common areas, laundry room, Kitchen, living room. I also have a back patio for smoking or relaxing and a gas bbq grill is available. Sometimes when I have a full host I host a bbq for me and my guests.
I am usually home all the time, as I work from home. I am thinking about joining uber, so in the meantime if I am available I can drive/drop you downtown or airport for a fee.

Atención a los huéspedes
I am available for general conversation in the evenings, and happy to give advice or whatever anytime. I have been living here over 20 years. I ran for city council in 2009. I might know a thing or two about the city.
Pets are generally ok but they must be pre-approved before booking.
Do not allow/invite any non residents into the house without prior approval.
Other than that, just, exercise mutual respect and try to keep noise to a minimum during sleeping hours, approximately 11pm to 8am.
One load of laundry wash and dry is included with each booking additional loads are $3, and must be done between noon and 9pm.
You must park in the driveway unless there is no space in which case you should park on the right side of the street directly in front of my house.
I strive to be the friendliest host possible. I generally like to socialize with guests. I provide advice about St Petersburg or sometimes we have a longer conversation.
Parents are farmers from Michigan but moved overseas after they got married, and so I ended up growing up in Greece, which gives me a more international perspective. I have now been living in St. Petersburg, Florida for about 20 years and really like it.
I work in politics, on a non partisan project to help voters learn about all the candidates they can vote for. I also manage other properties like by my parents beach condo rental on Indian Rocks Beach. (two week minimum due to condo ass. rules)
I work from home and am on the computer most of the time. Coding, I have various levels of experience, with bash, php, filemaker, etc.
I hope someday my project called ShadowVote will dramatically improve the world.
