About Us

At Porch Swing Boutique Home Rentals we put a porch swing on every porch. Porch swings were popular in the 1920’s when our bungalows were built. Big front porches with porch swings . . . those were the days when neighbors socialized. Plus, nothing says relaxation more than a porch swing.

Our unique homes are in the historic Old Northeast area of St. Petersburg, Florida. Many are right downtown. Walk to the waterfront, parks, shops and restaurants.
 Each property has its’ own garage or private off street parking. All have washers/dryers and modern conveniences.

Our homes are selected for their charm and authenticity. With old fashioned front porches, each bungalow is branded by our signature porch swing and a yard billowing with tropical flowers. We brand our homes with custom plaques.

In our furnished bungalows we provide cable, wi-fi and pay all utility bills. Linen and kitchen packages are also included. 
 Porch Swing Boutique Home Rentals has been restoring vintage bungalows for years and has exceptional experience in preserving their charm and character.

They can make amazing second homes when everything is provided. We care for them when you are not there and we have them waiting for you when you return.

Enjoy hassle free living and live in a place you love.

About the Owner

Hello there traveler!

I personally invite you to visit St. Petersburg . . . a city like no other!

Once a native from Annapolis, Maryland, I moved to St. Petersburg fifteen years ago. I love the weather, the water, the people and the city. And I love GREEN foliage year around!

I rent quality 1920 bungalows right in town, delightfully decorate them and take special care in maintaining them for my guests.

Are you seeking a warm, sunny climate . . . to live or to vacation? Have you already thought about moving to St. Petersburg, but want to try it first?

Are you often on extended stay business trips, staying in lackluster hotels? Are you rehabbing a current home and need a temporary, but nice place to stay?

Do you just want a second home that is always there for you when you need to relax and get away?

If this fits you . . . then let’s talk.

When you rent with us, we worry about upkeep and home ownership issues. 
No hassles or headaches for you. I look forward to making St. Petersburg your second home.
