We enjoyed staying there for a short week... The surroundings are quite nice, a few minutes drive from downtown St Pet. The house is calm, quiet, surprisingly decorated by Brian the owner...oriental corners, various lounges, life-savers seats around the pool make it a permanent discovery... A few animals dwell there: Packer the Parrot, Urban the Poodle, John and Mary the... More

Brian, the owner, was great. He was helpful and accommodating. The rooms are okay..nothing fancy...could use some love and updating. My biggest complaint was why an establishment that bills itself as gay house allows straight young girls to be naked around the pool. It was very awkard and uncomfortable. The day/night we spent there, a young, straight, 21 year old... More

gaystpete, Owner at GayStPete House, responded to this review

I'm sorry, no where in any of my advertising does it say we are a men only establishment. Anyone who wants a relaxed, clothing optional place to stay is welcome here. There was one straight girl, not girls, and she was visiting her two nude gay friends here. I wish you the best of luck in your travels. More

Stayed a few nights recently, pool area is very nice, although the pool was very cold for a so called heated pool. Brian the owner and "urban" the dog are very good hosts. The problem here is the rooms, old, tired worn décor, a mish mash of old furniture and beds. To be honest the two rooms we had need... More

The rooms are dumpy, the grounds over grown and old, the common areas are pleasant enough although everything needed a good hosing down or it seemed so. The pool is great and the guests were nice which made our stay at Gay St. Pete house OK. Overall the place felt like a lower end P Town guest house with really... More

A very well run property with a helpful host. The rooms have direct access to the pool and hot tub and are a good size. The rates are fair, especially if you choose to stay a week. Also would be a great place for a weekend getaway. The location of the property is very central for shopping, cultural life, and... More

Me and my partner Kim stayed at this jewel of a place for a week. We were going to stay at the Flamingo Resort for 10 days but switch here after 3 days ( What a dump ) and dirty the Flamingo is. The tea dance on Sundays was fun, but only that! Gay St.Pete gave us a beautiful place... More

Great stay for value. Fifteen minutes from beach and close to Grand Central section of St Pete. Very casual atmosphere. Only six rooms which adds to atmosphere. Room was in need of repair but acceptable. Was surprised that room is not serviced daily but for the price I was more than happy to make my own bed.
