Der Wohnraum

We have a colorful space that I would say is Mexican themed. We also have plans to it more international and sustainable. My hope is each guest will help make the house more green and sustainable, so if you have any experience with that we would love the assistance. Also we open to you adding your creative talents to our house in whatever way possible; adding your personal touch. We have had previous guests draw, paint, murals, build shelves, raised beds, plant fruit trees, help build the compost and the list goes on......

I stayed at International House for two months while working up the street near downtown St. Pete. I stayed in the Africa room, which was pretty small but definitely worth it for the value. To be clear: there are two houses and two trailers on the property, with each room named after a different continent. The prices generally reflect how nice/spacious a room is, so keep that in mind! This really is a community-minded place, almost similar to a hostel or even a commune/compound, so if you don't like constantly meeting people and conversing, this probably isn't the place for you. I really enjoyed meeting new people and always having something to do, and Joni (who maintains the houses when Chris is away) really tries to make you feel at home by including you in various activities. She lives in the second house (which has the Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe rooms) with her three kids, who are all pretty kind and courteous to guests. The front house (which has the other rooms) is markedly nicer than the second, so keep that in mind as well! Overall, this place is a GREAT value for where you are in St. Pete. It's walkable to downtown, the bay and Old Southeast Market, which quickly became my favorite place in the city (try the poke bowls!) It's easily the cheapest long-term option in the city. You get what you pay for space and privacy-wise, but it's definitely worth it if you're looking to stay in a community-minded place!

This is a lovely place, very welcoming, and warm hearted hosts. It's easy to connect you I felt like part of the something. Also the place is simple, and I loved that sense of clarity and simplicity. Because the hosts have travelled extensively themselves I felt surrounded by the whole world and it's inspiring to go visit other places. The guesthouse reminded me of guest houses I stayed at in Nepal and India. I'd go there any time again, next year for sure.

Chris's place is difficult to review due to the nature of my arrival and the fact that I did not stay in the room I originally booked. My 3 star communication review comes down to this: Chris and the live-in host, Joni, were not prepared for my arrival. I had notified Chris via the app that I was arriving later than expected (traffic accident on my route down from Indiana), but I gave him what I felt to be a reasonable ETA: 6:30 to 7pm that night. (I arrived at 6:37.) He mentioned that he had a manager, Joni, and provided her number. However, he made no attempt to address the check-in procedure. When I prompted him with a related question, that is, regarding the nature and availability of parking at the location, he did not respond. As I had indicated that I was airbnb-ing in the interim (I was waiting for a local friend's house to become available) I did not know if his comment about Joni was in response to that. Upon my arrival, I approached the residence and proceeded to call Chris when I could not enter. There were no posted instructions or a lockbox for a set of keys...only a cryptic hand painted sign on the front door (pointing directly at the top boltlock) to indicate "enter here." After two calls to Chris, two calls to Joni and repeated viewings of the app, I called airbnb. (You'll be treated to a splendid power pop tune while you wait.) Joni called in the middle of my call and approached from the side gate. She and Chris apologized for the situation but I just wanted to turn in. Total wait: 45 min. My only other complaint is the dryer was not hooked up while I was there. Despite this, I feel that if I had arrived under better circumstances (and if my expectations about the place were tempered by a more thorough review of past travelers' experiences) I would not hesitate to give it 5 stars. Recommend, but with reservations.
