About this rental
Welcome to Lakewood – a peaceful oasis in St. Pete!
Start the day with a cup of coffee on our palm-shaded terrace, then take a relaxing swim at the quiet pool or enjoy a game of tennis on one of the free courts in the park across the street!
Our family has owned this unit for more than 20 years, and we have spent the past few years refurbishing it and bringing it fully up-to-date.
Why do we feel so much at home here? Because it's a place people live year round – not just somewhere people spend their vacations! And that offers you some great benefits:
– A good night's sleep: our neighbors are more likely to be going to work in the morning than partying at night
– Plenty of space in the pool: few people in the complex have the time to take a swim during the day
– Safety and security: you don't have empty condos around you because there are people living in the complex whatever month you visit
Just round the corner there's a small park, which is perfect for running, as well as free tennis courts and a halfpipe for skateboarders. And if you want to see some baseball or American football, you can check out the games hosted by the neighborhood high school some evenings. So you get to feel even more like a local!
MINIMUM STAY: 1 month
St. Pete Beach, St. Petersburg, is on Florida's west coast bordering the Gulf of Mexico, some 30 minutes drive from Tampa. Beautiful, empty, white powder sand beaches and a great range of watersports make this the perfect choice for your vacation. Some protected parts of the beach have been restored with native vegetation and are home to pelicans and other rare seabirds. Sports fans are only a short drive away from baseball and American football stadiums, horse racing, and dog racing tracks.
You can reach several attractions within about two hours drive, including the Everglades, South Miami Beach, Walt Disney World (Disneyland), SeaWorld, Universal Studios, and the Kennedy Space Center. The Florida Keys are also a popular destination for people on vacation.
Other activities: canoeing, deep-sea fishing, snorkeling, baseball, tennis (free courts and a halfpipe for skateboarders in the park opposite the condo).

About the owner: We are traveling a lot along the world and we love holiday homes that combine cosiness, comfort and a decent feeling for fresh design. Thus we try to make our own apartments a place where guests love to come back - just as much as we do. :-)
We got our holiday home from our parents who grew old with it. But not the house! We have been redoing every room within the last years - from a new bathroom to a new terrace and a brand-new kitchen with induction hobs for passionate cooks just as we are.
Why this property? Because you feel like home in this place. The people in the residence are warm and friendly - without being curious. Its a cosy and relaxing place, perfect to calm down after a day at the beach or in Orlando.
Guestbook comments from the host:
Wirklich erstklassige Betreuung und Vorab-Informationen inkl. Hotspots und Empfehlungen St. Pete / Unterstützung durch den Vermieter. Aus meiner Sicht eine schöne, geräumige Unterkunft mit guter Ausstattung (sogar Internet auf Wunsch), ideal geeignet für bis zu 5 Personen - TOP ! - Jederzeit wieder sehr gerne !
Der Urlaub war toll. Frühstück auf der Terrasse, Parkplatz vor der Tür. Der Pool war auch in Ordnung. Toll ausgestattete Küche.
This is a lovely townhouse, quiet, clean and much larger than it appears in the photos. It has a well-equipped kitchen and everything you need for a comfortable vacation, including a very pretty patio. The location is perfect - only a ten minute drive to downtown, the beach, or to Gulfport, with a Publix grocery store nearby and a park with a one-mile walking path just across the street. The owner is incredibly nice and responded quickly to any questions I had. There are also two bicycles that renters can use. I would definitely recommend this rental.
Das Reihenhaus in der Wohnanlage war uns 10 Tage lang eine sehr gute Unterkunft. Das Haus ist sauber, gepflegt und für einen Urlaubsaufenthalt hervorragend geeignet. Die gut ausgestattete Küche hat uns gute Dienste geleistet und auf der windgeschützten Terrasse schmeckte auch am kühleren Morgen der Kaffee. Die Wohnanlage liegt verkehrstechnisch gut in der Nähe der Interstate und der Innenstadt und ist insgesamt sehr ruhig. Der Parkplatz vor der Haustüre ist natürlich Gold wert. Die Informationen der Vermieterin waren umfassend und detailliert. Alles in allem ... bestens!
Wir waren im Herbst 2017 mit unseren 2 Jungs (6+9 Jahre) in St. Pete. Das Haus war genau so wie auf den Bildern,sehr sauber und alles vorhanden was man braucht. Den Pool hatten wir fast immer für uns alleine,das hat uns sehr gefallen. Die Infos und Tipps waren sehr hilfreich und die Vermieter einfach toll,immer zu erreichen und sehr bemüht um schnelle Hilfe wenn es nötig war.
Die Lage ist sehr empfehlenswert,man ist wirklich schnell überall und die verschiedenen Strände einfach nur traumhaft. Wir hatten einen unvergesslichen Urlaub und würden dieses Haus jedem weiterempfehlen. Einen grossen Dank an Frau und Herr Ferus das sie das liebevoll eingerichtete Haus uns zur Verfügung gestellt haben.
Don't be fooled by the term "cozy", it may be a townhouse, but it is quite spacious! The complex is very well kept, and it is very quiet. We walked passed a few residents on our way to the pool, and they were all very amicable. We rented Whisperwood for two weeks in order to relocate to Tampa. It was very easy and pleasant to correspond with the owner, even though she was responding from Europe! She was timely, and very nice! At the location, she has a couple of people in charge of maintaining the property. The pool is a bit of a walk, but it is in the same complex (maybe about one block away?). We had our little daughter with us, so the pool was an excellent plus! Very secure, you need a key card to access the complex, and the unit has outer doors/gate (back and front) with locks, as well as the regular doors. We always felt very secure when walking to the pool or around the complex. Dumpsters are also very conveniently located nearby. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs connected by a full bathroom. Two double beds (two adults could sleep on these beds) in one room, and a very comfy king sized bed in the master bedroom. Each room has a sink in it, which was convenient. The wooden floors are impecable and the stairs are relatively quiet. Lots of storage space and tasteful furniture. There are also plenty of linen ready for use. The owners have two Huffy bikes parked under the stairs - we didn't use them but they looked pretty much brand new and would make a ride to the beach quite a wonderful memory! Downstairs, very comfy couches, flat screen tv, coffee table, a bar with plenty of bar stools, washer and dryer in a utility room, a half bathroom and closet. The kitchen is very functional with all the necessary amenities, including a dishwasher, fridge, microwave, electric stove/oven, disposal in a single sink, and stocked with plenty of dishes and other small appliances. Plenty of parking for guests, and your parking spot is right in front of the unit. Air conditioning and fans kept the place at a perfect temperature for us. Internet was a hotspot providing us with 5Gb (not enough for streaming videos, but enough for brief daily browsing/email). The dining area has a table that can sit 4 comfortably, but if you don't mind squeezing in a bit, you can pull the table from the wall and fit 6. Publix is around the corner, and driving to Fort Desoto was a quick 15 min drive. 30-40min from airport.
Tolle Unterkunft! Es war ein schönes Gefühl dort wohnen zu dürfen und hat uns Dreien sehr gut gefallen. Mal sehen, wann es uns wieder nach St. Pete verschlägt...
