Getting around

Uber, private car

Getting here

We are only a short 35-45 minute drive from Tampa Airport. I recommend using Uber when you arrive at the mansion because they only charge about $6 to get to the downtown restaurants and shopping.

Interaction with guest

I will be greeting you at your arrival time to give you a personal tour and help you settle in. You will have my cell number so if you need anything or something breaks I am only 35 minutes away. I have compiled a 3 ring binder with everything about the house, restaurants, lounges and shopping. I have also included boat rentals, fishing charters, wedding vendors and more. Just ask and you shall receive. We have pool towels and suntan lotions waiting for you. I am a hands on owner and i want your stay to be pleasant and magical!

“Winter Wonderland Vacation on Waterfront St. Pete!”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2017

We invited our extended family to spend Christmas together this year at The Petro Mansion, hoping that the house looked as good in person as it did online. The house is just as beautiful, if not more so, in person! Alex had the house beautifully decorated for Christmas inside and out with a Christmas Tree, Mantel Decor, Festive Outside Lighting in front and back, all on timers! We had 14 people spending the night including 3 college kids, 3 teenagers, 3 separate families, a dog, and a lot of personalities. It was the perfect setting for all of us to enjoy the holiday together without being on top of one another. The separate suite was wonderful for all the teens. They had their privacy and could stay up as late as they wanted without bothering the rest of us. Our favorite part was the back yard patio area. We enjoyed looking out over the pool into the bay for sunrise and coffee in the mornings, and sunsets and cocktails at night. We could go kayaking, swimming, lounging by the pool, play pool, and work out all to our favorite tunes through the music system. We rented a pontoon boat one day and they delivered the boat right to our dock and picked it back up when we were done. We didn't go out to eat once because we took turns cooking in the gourmet kitchen and enjoyed eating outside with our first class view of the bay with lighted palm trees. The kitchen came with most condiments already in the fridge and spices too so we didn't have to drag all of that with us! We had the upstairs kitchen to use on Christmas Day when we had 20 people for dinner. There was a liquor bar and wine room if you ran out of anything all set up on the honor system. They really thought of everything. Alex was very attentive and answered any texts/calls we had quickly, but he also walks you through how to use everything like the tvs, boat dock, radio system, weight room, and air conditioning so you are not wasting your whole time trying to figure it all out.y will go back! Thanks Alex for making our Christmas 2016 a wonderful Experience!!

Owner's reply: Thank you Debbie for the kind words. You and your family are welcome back anytime. Thank you for leaving the mansion clean. My housekeepers really liked that!

“Exceptional Holiday Stay with our Daughters”

Reviewed 15 Dec 2016

First and foremost a Huge Thank you to Alex for allowing our family stay in his Amazing home in St Pete!! We had the best time here with 2 of our daughters. One who serves in the USAF and her birthday and another who was just accepted into USFSP for Environmental Science and minor Marine. We couldnt have been more lucky to share our family time here. We made so many more memories, the home had everything we needed and more!! We sat poolside everynight singing, playing guitar, laughing, swimming and our meals. Our stay was exceptional in everyway, we loved the home, the amenities, everything u could need possible was provided. I recommend this home to everyone, you will not be disappointed at all!! Again, thank you Alex, 5 stars all the way!!!

Owner's reply: Sondra, I am very happy that you and your family were pleased with your accommodations at our mansion. We welcome you back in the future! Alex

The Petro Mansion was an amazing retreat for our family. We had 17 family members, including 3 children, and all had a wonderful week staying at the mansion. Alex met us there upon arrival and gave us a tour of the mansion, answered all our questions, and made sure we were settled before he left us to enjoy our stay. He encouraged us to contact him during our stay regarding any problems or questions we might have. He had a detailed list of activities, bars, and restaurants to try throughout the week. He has really thought of everything! The mansion is well appointed with many amenities. While there is plenty of room for everyone to gather together, the separate wings of the mansion make it possible for you to sneak away for reading, playing video games, or even just to take a nap. We brought our jet skis with us, and Alex has a boat lift available so we were able to keep them docked at the mansion during our time in St. Pete. We also took advantage of the kayak and paddle board rental that Alex offers for the week. This made touring the bay so convenient for our family. Sunrise and sunsets were amazing! The pool area is breathtaking in the evening - it was our favorite spot. During the day while sitting by the pool, you could enjoy watching the local wildlife, including Dolphins, and the kids were able to fish right off the dock. We can't say enough about our stay, the excellent communication, and the ease of renting from Alex. We will definitely be back!

Owner's reply: Hello Donna, Thank you for the kind words and for choosing our mansion to vacation at. We take extra time and money to insure that your stay will be the finest! We encourage future guests to bring their own waverunners or boats since we have 2 boat lifts and a waverunner lift. We also work with several boat rental companies that give our guests wonderful discounts and even deliver to the mansion.

“Awesome Wedding Weekend Home!”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2016

We absolutely loved our stay at the Petro Waterfront Mansion! My wife and I decided to host our Wedding Reception and spend the week with our families at the Mansion and we are super happy that we did. We lived in the area for 4+ years and are lucky that we found this gem. We were both a bit scared to have our families share a week together, however this property allowed us the best opportunity for that. The way the Mansion is setup is perfect for everyone to be together or for each individual to have some private space. The location is really close to downtown St. Pete which was convenient, but we didn't have many reasons to leave once we arrived. The Mansion was stocked with pool toys, fishing gear, and we also enjoyed renting the kayaks and paddle boards which we highly recommend! Alex was attentive to every need and quick to respond to any questions that we had. Thank you Alex for helping make our wedding weekend special and we highly recommend anyone looking for a care free week in a perfect setting to stay at the Petro Waterfront Mansion!

Owner's reply: Paul, We enjoyed meeting you and your family. Congradulations on getting married in beautiful St. Petersburg and choosing Petro Mansion to have your reception at. We look forward to seeing you in the future on one of your anniversaries. Alex & Katrina
