My partner and me read many recommendations about this place. It was a unique experience. The B&B facilities are more then fine, the room design was theme oriented as promised. But there was something even greater - the B&B host service was warm, kind and highly informative about the few attractions on the area. The superb yet homey breakfast served...

My boyfriend and I spent a beautiful time at The Dickens House Bed and Breakfast! We enjoyed Super friendly owner host Ed, delicious breakfast, very well kept property, and our cottage was amazing! Also, location is super convenient - walking distance to all restaurants and attractions! We strongly recommend this villa and we will definitely will stay again there :)...

My wife and I only live about 15 miles from Dickens House B&B, but we just finished our third stay with Ed. We're in our 50's, like to travel, and have stayed in very nice hotels and B&B's across the country. Dickens House is far and away the most enjoyable B&B we've stayed in. Ed lovingly restored the home to...

First off, due to crazy rains in Florida I needed to change my reservation so that our trip could be more enjoyable. The owner was great and happily moved our dates back, no problem. Thank you!! Upon arrival no body was there to greet us but no problem a quick phone call and the door code was given and even...

Ed met us at the door with maps and directions for dinner and places to visit. He was so gracious and kind. The room was very clean and included all you'd need for 2 nights away. We used the fridge for our 20the anniversary wine and leftovers from meals eaten out. We used the DVD player with a movie we...

Beautiful restored Arts and Crafts house very well situated in St Petersburg. Short walk to the beach front and all the restaurants. Very handy for the trolley bus. House is beautiful inside and out, full of character. Our bedroom (The Cottage Suite) was a good size and the bed very comfortable; all very clean and good linens. Breakfasts were excellent,...

Our love of blues festivals has led us to St. Pete on two occasions (so far!). We stayed at Dickens House on both trips and could not have made a better choice. The festivals are held at Vinoy Park which is a 5 minute walk from the B&B. Also within walking distance are great restaurants, museums and shopping. The accommodations...

Dickens House is located at the centre of St Petersburg, very close to the beach, parks, a swimming pool and a variety of bars, cafes restaurants. Despite its close proximity to all the action, the street was very quiet. The house was tastefully decorated, beautifully lit and very clean. The proprietor Ed Caldwell was a wonderful host; he did everything...

We have stayed in this B&B on two occasions. The host is most gracious and helpful. The breakfast is outstanding. All fresh fruits and home cooked meals. The place is located within walking distance of down town where we experienced both fine restaurants, museums and shopping. Will definitely return.

Our daughter booked our room for us at this beautiful Bed and Breakfast. It was a busy weekend in St. Petersburg, however, the location and charming, quiet front porch provided a wonderful spot to relax at the end of the day. We especially loved sitting around the breakfast table in the mornings. Ed provided a wonderful breakfast that was varied...
