Since our new ALVA International office is located in the heart of downtown St Petersburg Florida on Beach Drive, we get people stopping in to inquire about condo rentals in downtown.
For those who are looking for a rental for a week or a month - sorry, we can't help. Nearly all of the condos are residential, not vacation, and most have minimum rental periods of one year. If you want a vacation rental, you'll generally have to look on the beaches, and then drive 15 minutes to downtown St Petersburg.
You can rent a condo for $800 per month or for $5,000 per month - depends on size, view, and degree of luxury.
I've just posted a current market report on downtown St Petersburg condo rentals. I've even started using charts that show availability and leasing activity in particular condos.
Most of our luxury condo rentals have water views. Our downtown St Petersburg area is wonderful for walking. Just park your car in the garage and walk to work (or if you're retired, forget about the work part), to shops, restaurants, museums, parks and marinas. Choose from many festivals, music concerts, gallery walks, and a wide variety of activities.
To me, St Petersburg has the best of all worlds - lots to do, but leisurely. Enjoy life - come to St Pete.
