Bright, playful second-floor loft apartment with windows on all sides. Professionally designed to appear larger than its' 360 square feet.

Enter through a private courtyard with an abundance of flowers.

Stay as a guest at Little Pearl and capture the coziness of a “tiny home" and the airiness of a "tree house". This charming loft apartment is located on sophisticated Beach Drive, the road that leads into the heart of town. It is in an area of grand homes, tree-lined streets and best of all . . . less than a block away is sparkling Tampa Bay. Many of our guests have enjoyed getting up early to photograph the stunning sunrises at the end of the street.

From this location, you can easily walk to festivals in the park and even downtown. It is about 20 minutes to the Vinoy on foot. About 5 minutes by car and somewhere in between by bike. (We have bike storage on site and there are many bike shops that will rent bikes by the day and week.) About four houses down, pick up the waterfront path to town or stroll through a neighborhood of historic craftsmen and Mediterranean style homes to town.

The entry to Little Pearl is through a pair of antique verdigris gates and under a bougainvillea covered arbor. An old hex block patio is lined with colorful Mexican pots and flower boxes. There is also a bistro table and chairs. Follow the private outdoor stairs to the entry deck and door.

This unit has been described by others as "too stinkin’ cute". And it is. With multiple windows, you see the old homes framed through the fronds of cabbage and coconut palms. The small foyer with closet for hanging opens on the right to a unique bathroom (with shower). The funky vanity is from the old South/West. An antique mirror from a local French flea market hangs above. The owner rescued three glass transoms from an old home. One is over the bathroom door and the other two are embellishments between the kitchen and bathroom. Adds extra light and character. On the left of the foyer is the sleeping area with a queen size bed. The antique headboard with decorative spool spindles has been painted in a McKinsey Childs-fashion with lots of patterns and color.

In the living room, the carpenter built a curio cabinet using arched top doors from Europe. Below is a colorful shelf made from old tin ceiling tiles. A cool shell mirror hangs on the wall. Grass rug completes the coastal look of the room. Like all open floor plans, you see right into the kitchen. Small, but completely equipped with a farm style sink and white square tiled counters trimmed in oak. Overhead ceiling fans add to the ambiance.. The new washer/dryer is seamlessly tucked under the kitchen peninsula eating counter. Overhead is a new 40” wall mounted smart TV strategically placed. You can watch TV from the bed, the living room and the kitchen.

Little Pearl is in a perfect location to explore all St. Petersburg has to offer. Being in a quiet high-end residential area away from city noises and next to grassy waterfront parks will make your stay that much more relaxing.
