Looking to move to the St Pete, Brian's guest house was perfect fit,as he also a Broker. All the guests where respectful of each. Urban and Cowboy the dogs are very sweet. as well as... More

Our stay was wonderful from when Brian welcomed us in till we left 4 days later. Lucky there was a cancelation because there are limited but charming rooms. Great sheltered pool and garden. It's great for relaxing and rejuvenation. One review I read from France before we booked was bazaarly off base to me. We will definitely be back if... More

Nice place ! Very accommodating, lots of amenities clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again. Great location close to restaurants and not far from beaches. My friend got a great massage from the in house massage therapist. Decent breakfast snacks.

The GayStPete House is a charming and wonderfully private place to stay. The front of the house is deceivingly small for all of the attractions it has hidden inside its walls. We stayed in one of the pool-side cabanas that had a fully stocked kitchenette complete with a stove, microwave and full sized refrigerator. Located in the middle of St... More

We found this to be a very comfortable and enjoyable place to stay. Brian is a very welcoming host and the clothing-optional pool and hot tub was both the perfect temperature. The poolside room was nicely appointed with large closet, fridge and microwave. The towels were luxuriously fluffy, which is not often found away from home! The continental breakfast gave... More

A real disappointment! We use to lodge in gay guesthouses and this one is the worst we've ever stayed! The house is totally unkept! The house is old, our room were dirty and really not enjoyable with the shower located just next to the bed. The carpet was old and not clean. The ambience was great if you like to... More

gaystpete, Owner at GayStPete House, responded to this review

I almost wasn't going to respond, but honestly some of this is just ridiculous. 1. Yes as in the description it's a 1929 house, and improvements continue to be made. We've replaced 18 windows this year, added awnings, repainted rooms, replaced showers and continue to invest what our budget allows. You're room was $79 per night...not sure what you are... More

We will return. We will return. We will return. A simple one nite stay that was so relaxing and pleasant. As stated in other reviews, Brian is an excellent host. All staff members are pleasant. Our room was just off the pool and had a small library of books and dvds. I asked Brian about borrowing a dvd player as... More

From start to finish, this was the best. Staff was great and friendly. We were using this as a home base while we looked for more permanent residence. Brian, the owner, was extremely helpful giving us all the local info and even helped in our new home search. Guest were friendly as well. Really a great experience. My only regret.... More
