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.

A Wonderful Time

  • Submitted: Jan 28, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
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!

A Merry Christmas

  • Submitted: Jan 28, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
A very Merry Christmas was had by all. Our family enjoyed a wonderful time and had the opportunity to relax during a splendid time of the year. We all traveled from different locations to be together at this home. While here we were treated to the local seafood, crab claws, Gulf pink Shrimp, conch fritters, etc. The pool and patio was the central gathering point and provided the kids with endless entertainment. At night the patio area became a place for cards and board games-yet another chance to be together and laugh. Being in this home for the holiday made our family time much more enjoyable than any hotel could have been. To the next folks, enjoy this beautiful home and your time in it.

Wonderful place for family holiday!

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.

Brian and Cadie

Thoroughly Enjoyed Our Stay

  • Submitted: Jul 2, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
We really enjoyed our trip to Florida. So much natural beauty, great food, nice people and fun! The house was so comfortable with all the comforts of home. Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks, The Dali Museum, and Honeymoon Island were all highlights. Our favorite restaurant was Hellas Greek restaurant in Tarpon Springs, ask for Noah! For excellent fine dining, Bon Appetit in Dunedin can not be beat. I must not forget the Frank Lloyd Wright designed college in Lakeland (Florida Southern) which was amazing. Thank you so much for sharing your lovely house with us. The Lee Family.

What a Beautiful Vacation Home

  • Submitted: Jul 2, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
Thank you so much for allowing our family to enjoy this wonderful house. We have 7 adults and 2 children under 3 years old and it was perfect. The toys, movies, TV's, and pool kept us all very entertained. We loved being so close to the beaches and bigger cities without feeling we were in the middle of a very tourist heavy area. Restaurants we would recommend are Sonny's BBQ Pit, Thirsty Marlin, and Strachan's Ice Cream. Beaches: Caladesi Island (15 min boat ride from Honeymoon Island). Clearwater Beach (arrive early for parking). Activities: The Florida Aquarium in Tampa, The Shoppes along Clearwater beach, and Megabite Dolphin Tour. Honestly, we spent most of our days relaxing by the pool and enjoying the beaches, which was perfect. This was a great vacation and the house was the best we have stayed in. We cant wait to come back. Thank You!
