This was our 3rd visit to Dickens House. Ed is s great host, and prepares excellent breakfasts including fresh fruit in season. His local knowledge provides helpful suggestions about the area and events. Sharing with other guests from all over the US and sometimes other countries at the round table only adds to the benefits of a BnB. As to...

It's located close to the waterfront and downtown. You can walk to restaurants and museums. The owner is a good cook. He could be a little bit straightforward. Too bad that he might be closing. He's selling the place.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Dickens House in the Perry Snell room. This lovingly restored home is in a nice neighborhood of St. Petersburg within walking distance of downtown attractions such as the wonderful Dali Museum, good restaurants, park walking trails etc. The room was very comfortable and had everything we needed for a nice stay. What...

Overall we had a satisfactory experience but I am puzzled how the Dickens House B&B got uniformly excellent ratings. The good: Ed was a good host and makes excellent breakfasts. He is quite willing to converse with his guests and I find this a big bonus of B&B travel, as you get to have a sense of the place and...

We've stayed at our fair share of B&B's over the years - from Florida to Maine, and England to Italy. The Dicken's House remains at the top of our list, so much so, that we come here regularly, as we are blessed to be only an hour away by car. My wife will come here by herself for a personal...

This is a beautifully furnished and really interesting home, and the guest accommodation is clean and very comfortable. It's on a quiet, pretty street, easy on-street parking, but only a few minutes walk from Beach Drive, which has a very good range of food and drink options, and where you can pick up the trolley bus (50 cents a ride),...

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 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!!
