We are an English family who chose this part of Florida,over all the rest that we traveled to over the years.
To live and work here is like being on vacation all year!
Paul & Gaye Vogel purchased this house in 2005
We fell in love with this area in the 80s. It is so perfect for everybody in the family to enjoy, having something for all age groups.
The beaches are the best you can get, the number one voted beach in the whole of the USA in Caladesi island is just 5 minutes drive away.
It is truly paradise here.
You can also walk to restaurants,cafes, shops etc, which is quite rare in Florida. The Jolly Trolly stops close by, which takes you south to Clearwater and Dunedin and north to Tarpon Springs.
We started to look for a vacation home along the Gulf coast nearly 20 years ago and had very tough search criteria.
We wanted the perfect location to suit every bodies needs, plus a lot more.
Not just for families, but for everybody wanting that perfect vacation.
In finding this beautiful quaint little town, we found it.
After 20 years and buying another 3 homes, all within walking distance of each other.
We never thought about buying else where, we had found the perfect location.
The area is friendly, safe to walk at night and central to everything
Hello, we had a wonderful time at your house in Florida and i just wanted to

Hi Paul and Gaye,
We had a wonderful stay at the sandpipers. What a great location- we enjoyed exploring.
Just wanted to let you know we had a very enjoyable time in Florida and your house was awesome. Enjoyed all the amenities.
Thanks Leo and Family
Thanks to Gaye and Paul once again for the use of their lovely home for our family vacation. It is so nice to spend the week together with our extended family. The house, pool and all the amenities accommodates us all so well. Our family memories are priceless.
Gayle and Paul,
I rented your Sandpiper home for my brother and his family while they were here for my daughter’s high school graduation. The house was even bigger than I had expected. There was enough room for everyone to have space to themselves when needed. We had a wonderful family dinner in the formal dining room and a great lunch outside on the closed in patio. The kids and adults alike loved the pool. We look forward to renting from you again in the future when a need arises. We loved the area!
Hello Thank you for our wonderful stay at the house! We had a great time, your home is a just perfect location and size, we hope to make our stay there a yearly event! Thank you so much for the wine, and the house book was so helpful. Xoxo the youngs Hendersonville NC
We have just returned from our Holiday weekend vacation. This was our first time using a home service. What a PLEASANT!!!! WONDERFUL!!!! AMAZING!!!! ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL EXPERIENCE!!!! First of all, communication, reservation, etc. was a breeze. We had 3 families and friends staying at the house (some are tough crowd to please) and EVERYONE!!! was raving about the neat, lovely decorated house that is Super conveniently located in a quiet peaceful neighborhood, yet so close to the pristine Gulf Beaches, fine dining and entertainment. Adults and kids enjoyed the wonderful pool in the evening. We used the dining suggestions listed in the Guest Book, definitely was A+++ and we certainly appreciate the extra mile you went to accommodate our friends and making our vacation a truly memorable and enjoyable one. Could not ask for a better place or vacation experience!!!!
