My fiance and I always take the time to read reviews before booking our BnB stays. After our brief encounter with La Veranda, we were surprised by the pleasant reviews of past guests. I will attempt to provide you with a balanced review, however suggest not staying at this Inn.
Positive Aspects: Location (walking distance to bars, restaurants, waterfront); Beautiful exterior
Negative Aspects: Fleas in bed (I noticed this at 2am - we then left and were requested by the host not to tell this to bedandbreakfast.com); Fingernail clippings on bedroom couch; Cat (he is nice at first, then scratched me across the face while I was petting him, while he was sitting on the dining table); Staff people are friendly however unprofessional and unclean; Rude Inn keeper; Needs renovation and cleaning
I have attached photos of our concerns. My recommendation is to drive in to the St. Petersburg area for the day (or stay at a local chain hotel). If you are looking for a nice location for a BnB, check out St. Pete Beach, or Dunedin.
