Not a detail was overlooked throughout with the furnishings of antique rattan covered with tropical fabrics to create the complete beach experience. Rest and relaxation is the result of your visit here while enjoying sunny days on the white sandy beaches, extraordinary sunsets and romantic nights.
Experience the feeling of being a beach resident for a week or a month.

I am so happy to invite you into my cozy tropical home for a visit. I grew up here in St Pete Beach and now our son has a home nearby so this really is our home away from home. 'Milo' is my 11 yr old chocolate Lab/pointer mix who loves to swim and chase tennis balls on the beach just so you know, I love dogs in my home just not on the furniture:) You and your fur family will find everything cozy and clean with many personal touches way above and beyond any rental properties we've experienced. The kitchen is fully stocked with herbs & spices, we have big beach towels and toys, plenty of good books and movies line the shelves...so all you need is your swim suit!

We have traveled all over Florida and St Pete Beach has the best beaches and old Florida feel by far. It has not been over developed and in fact has not changed too much since I lived here in 1985 with a lot of things to do all within a very close proximity to our home. There is an awesome Dog beach which is a part of Ft Desoto Park which is one place NOT to be missed on your visit. I think you'll find fun for you all to enjoy especially if you are traveling with your dogs. There are bike, Kayak and Paddle Board rentals as well as a ferry to a remote Island for spectacular shelling.
Enjoy the unique experience of being a local resident of a quiet private home right on the water. Many things are close enough to walk and the benefit of a home is all the privacy and no elevators, 'hallway rules' or others to bother you!
Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this clean, well kept home. We were there over a holiday weekend and didn't have to "fight the crowds" since we were only a short walking distance from the beach.
There were plenty of restaurants nearby; however, we also enjoyed the use of the grill and wonderfully equipped kitchen.
It was refreshing to relax on the porch and to enjoy the wildlife from the backyard and dock.
We would definitely recommend this home to those wishing to relax and enjoy a visit to St. Pete's Beach!
We had a great time.
There isn't enough good things to say about this house, it was perfect for our holiday travel - loved the shower in the "garage" bathroom!
The closest public beach was an easy walk. The neighborhood was very quiet and homey feeling.
The beds were comfortable - even the pull out sleeper. The property was well maintained.
The kitchen was good size to accommodate a Thanksgiving feast for the family and there was plenty of room for everyone to sit and enjoy each others company. Plus plenty of parking in the circular driveway.
I would definitely recommend this property!
This is a wonderful home. We have 4 children (one is a baby) and the set-up of the house was ideal for a good-sized family. We didn't bring our dog, but she would have loved it. The kitchen was perfect. (I usually do not like cooking on vacation, but this kitchen was so well stocked and had wonderful counter space - I could not resist!) There are many different sitting and eating areas with great views of the water. The house is stocked with beach chairs, a pack-n-play to take to the beach, an umbrella, and even beach towels! (So you can pack light). I love the shower in the garage. Every time we came back from the beach we would use that shower and keep the sand away from the house. Wonderful neighbors to talk with...and most of all, the nicest hosts. (We never turned on the TV - a sign of a great family vacation).
My wife, parents and I thoroughly enjoyed the spacious beach house. We sat out on the dock with a few drinks. Our dogs enjoyed the back yard. The grill in the screened porch was put to good use. The TV was great for taking in the NBA playoffs and the internet helped keep up with work. The host was very helpful in orienting us to the area. Thank you for the stay! Scott.
Wow! What can I say! This dream home is located right on the water. You have your own private dock, grassed back yard, they take dogs and you can walk to the beach. Some may say the decor is dated but it made me think of "I dream of Jeannie." If you go on vacation for 52inch HDTV then look elsewhere. Personally, I was in Florida for a week and the TV did not turn on once. However, we played the BB King CD a number of times.
The neighbor to the right feeds the birds so expect to see a number of different types. We had a Heron land in the yard in front of us. Make a quick trip (5mins) to Pass a Grille to get some fresh Grouper. We followed it up with Fresh Stone Crab from Publix. Can't get much more Florida than that.
Tips on the house. There is a Jack and Jill bathroom between the two bedrooms with king beds. So rather than fight over who gets dibs on the bathroom, walk across the house and there is a bathroom with shower just past the garage. The kitchen is large and has settings for about 20 people. If you like to cook like we do there is plenty of room so you don't bump into each other. Please recycle and use the can with two handles to store the recycle until you transfer it outside to the bin.
We stayed there to escape the "tourist" version of Florida and were not disappointed. We sipped cocktails on the the screened porch, outside on the lawn furniture and when it got closer to 10pm we moved inside to the four seasons porch.
Not far from the beach, you can bar hop and hang with the locals or those of us that are lucky of enough to rent a week in paradise!
Sorry but I'd pass on this property. It is run down and in need of repair. Sheets have holes, the kitchen sink backed-up on xmass day! Owners response was ineffective. We left 2 days early. Don't go in the winter. There's nothing to do. Eateries are substandard. Even the TV was the old tube type. No HD!!!
UGH Big waste of money!
Enjoy the ultimate relaxation from our personal private boat dock after a fun day of swimming, jet skiing, golfing ; you name it! Dolphin watching and sunset diner cruise is within one mile for a unique romantic evening and dance the night away under the stars. There are no limits to the day an evening activities available and all in a very close proximity to our home. But make sure to leave some down time to soak up the sun, peace and quite of this retreat escape from your busy lives. You'll return refreshed and ready to go if you can.
