My partner and I stayed at Dickens House in mid-June (our apologies Ed for this delayed review) and had an overall wonderful stay. Ed is an excellent (and knowledgeable) host and provided us with a delicious breakfast (and did not skimp on portion sizes, which we really appreciated) each day of our stay. Ed gave us great advice as to outdoor activities in the area and was very accommodating, providing us with beach towels, chairs and a cooler. Dickens House provides comfortable (and clean) accommodations and is located in a great neighborhood within walking distance (or trolley service) of museums, parks, the pier and fine dining. Overall, we had a fantastic stay and will be visiting again should our travel plans take us through St. Pete. Also, note that the Dali Museum is a must see.
