Guestbook comments from the manager
Had a wonderful time at your lovely home. It seemed there was nothing you forgot to make our stay comfortable. Our little ones loved the library of movies and managed to swim in the pool a lot. We were on the go while here and attended New Years eve and day events in St. Petersburg. We also went to the aquarium in Tampa. For plane enthusiasts, don't miss the Fantasy of Flight in Polk City. We are now headed back to Missouri, but wish we could stay here in Florida. Thanks for everything!

My wife and I live in Kalispell, Montana where I work as a physician. Our passions are for family and friends, flying, gardening, good wine and food, music and art. We rehabilitate eagles in our back yard.

Brian McGonagill purchased this house in 2010

We have children and grandchildren nearby, so we bought and furnished this home with family in mind.

We love this area for the sunshine, warm weather and its closeness to the water. The cultural and recreational opportunities are endless with something for everyone nearby.

Big name sports and entertainment venues abound. Ten Major league Baseball teams hold spring training camps within minutes of the house.

World class golf and tennis are available year around.

Amazing deep-sea fishing, boating, shell hunting are easily accessible.

Luxury cruise boats leave from nearby Tampa. Also, there are plenty of private airports and fantastic recreational flying destinations.

There are miles of scenic bike/jogging trails at hand.

Wonderful restaurants, theatres, grocery stores and shopping are just down the street.

We enjoy that, while we are close to all the fun and recreational activities, our vacation home is in a very nice, quiet, private neighborhood that lets us feel the tranquility and relaxation of truly being 'at home.' It's so relaxing to sit on the lanai, or be taking a swim in the pool, while watching a tropical sunset...with no crowds or hustle. Our home has a large backyard that is ideal for badminton, croquet or horseshoes. I like to sit on the porch swing and look down the long open greenbelt behind the house.

We furnished the home for ourselves, with brand new, top of the line mattresses and linens. I love to cook and just bought a new infrared gas grill that takes barbeque to a new level.

Colorful art by Warhol, Lichtenstein, Van Gogh and LeWitt lend fun and atmosphere.

WONDERFUL PLACE FOR FAMILY HOLIDAY!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed at the Pine Warbler house during Christmas week and we could not have chosen a better place. Brian had even setup a nice Christmas tree so we didn't have to worry about making the place festive. We had 6 adults and 4 kids and the sleeping arrangements worked perfectly. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need, even an electric mixer. The kids were probably in the pool more than they were in the house. The solar heated pool was surprisingly warm, even on the chillier days we were there. We really appreciated the little things that were thought of for the house, like the booster seat and step stool for toddlers, beach chairs and beach toys, the collapsible laundry basket, and the nice selection of movies in the master bedroom closet. During our visit, we used the free Honeymoon Island passes for a day at the beach. If you have kids between 3-12 yo, definitely watch the Dolphin Tale movie and consider visiting the Clearwater Marine Aquarium to visit Winter, the tail-less dolphin. Its not your typical aquarium with dolphin shows, but they do a really good job about educating the public about dangers to marine animals. Winter is also a great time for snow crabs so be on the look out for them. We found them at a fruit stand on old-19. The only drawback to the house is the main bathroom, which is a little dated. It would have been nice if it had been bigger and more updated since a lot of us had to share it. Other than that, everything was perfect. Thank you, Brian!

Owner's Response: Nancy,

Thank you for your review. We are glad you had such a great time in the area and enjoyed our home with all of its amenities. We are are delighted that you enjoyed the heated pool (it is actually not a solar heated pool but electrically heated) which is why it was so warm for your stay during winter. We try and make the home as close to your own home when staying with us. The movies, spices, fully stocked kitchen, beach toys, high chairs, etc are items we are happy to share with travelers because it makes a vacation so much easier and enjoyable. Thank you so much for staying with us. We hope to see you again.

BEAUTIFIL HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect home away from home getaway. The layout is perfect for big families. The house was clean and came with everything we needed. The pool was great and we made good use of the grill. The area was very quit. It was worth every penny and I would absolutely recommend to anyone I know to try and stay with you guys if they are ever in the Tampa area. We will come again. Thanks for everything.

PERFECT FOR VACATION WITH EXTENDED FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
Nine of us (a toddler, teens, parents, grandparents) stayed at this home for 5 days in April while in the area for a family reunion. The house was spacious, clean and comfortable. In addition to allowing us all to be together, we appreciated all of the extras (thick beach towels, children's DVD library, free WiFi, child-safe pool, well-stocked kitchen, washer and dryer) that we would not have found at a hotel. The home is a short drive to the beach, shopping and restaurants. Like a previous reviewer, we echo the sentiment that the Clearwater Aquarium was not worth the price of admission. For anyone traveling with small children who do not want to try tackling Busch Gardens, we recommend the Lowry Park Zoo.

EVEN BETTER IN PERSON

  • 5 of 5
This house was even more beautiful in person. The description does not do it justice. I have rented houses on vrbo before but this one surpasses all others. The house was stocked with all that we needed. Everything was so clean. We swam in the pool, fished off the dock (and caught fish!), sat on the deck in the sun. We even used the free admission pass and went to Honeymoon Beach. At night, we would go out to dinner to the local restaurants. I would recommend the Tasty Marlin. It was delicious. We had a wonderful time and will be back next year!

LOVELY HOME- MET ALL OUR NEEDS

  • 5 of 5
We chose this home for our extended family vacation this year and we were not dissappointed. The home had everything we could have wanted. We spent most days out exploring the area and evenings by the pool watching the kids swim. Some of our party visited Busch Gardens one day, we all visited the Clearwater Aquarium another day (we were quite dissappointed with this- the name 'aquarium' is a misnomer, we were used to other aquariums like Oregon Coast Aquarium, Monterey Bay Aquarium and others- this is NOT an Aquarium but more of a marine hospital. If you approach it like that, you shouldn't be dissappointed. I think they have gotten alot of attention due to Dophin Tale and literally threw together a tourist trap. It was $20 to get in, no real bathrooms other than porta-potties and no real food either. However, the dolphin show was fantastic because it wasn't very crowded. The kids can get right next to the water and get splashed- worth $20 in my opinion).
We visited Honeymoon State Park and took the ferry to Caledesi another day (saw dolphins in the bay during our trip). The complementary day pass was wonderful and saved us some $. On one of our last days we went to Clearwater beach and that was quite nice. For $20 you can rent a cabana. There are lots of shops and restaraunts along the way. We did eat out one night in Palm Harbor and it was very nice. The house is close to grocery stores and everything else. There was also a little farmers market nearby that we went to on Sunday and stocked up on fruit and vegis for the next week.
Overall, a very wonderful experience!!! We would absolutely recomend this home to others!
