Visit us at Orchid Cottage! We are within walking distance to the waterfront, St. Pete's rocking nightlife, and 4th Street w/ all the necessities plus the vintage charm. You’ll love the cottage because of the ambiance and the historic neighborhood. It is great for couples or solo adventures. Please note: there is a maximum of three people allowed.
Orchid Cottage by the Bay is a legal, separate apartment behind our 90-year old bungalow. It was probably a garage at one time before it was converted. We have had a lot of fun working on the landscaping and the cottage ambience. There is a separate bedroom with a pocket door, a full kitchen with stove, and a pull-out couch in the main room.
This cottage is separate from the main house, in the back. Guests access the cottage through the main gate and into the backyard of the main house. Parking is available on the street (please note restricted times in places) and also in the church parking lot across the street. It is closed, so there are no issues parking there.
Общение с гостями
Hosts on-site or nearby most days, but if you prefer a private visit, it is entirely up to you. Guests park in front and use the lighted sidewalk down the side of the bungalow to the cottage.

The cottage is within walking distance of Vinoy Park and downtown, if you are attending any events there. We sometimes hear some music from events, but it is amazingly quiet. There are tennis courts, a public pool, a Palm Arboretum, and of course, the St. Pete Tampa Bay waterfront just blocks away.
There are two folding chairs and a small cooler in the apartment if you need them for local events.
