Bring the whole family and enjoy the Florida sun! Sunny, fully fenced yard, heated pool, amazing shorebirds- paddleboards and kayak too!
This home, updated in 2014, is fully equipped to provide a fun and carefree vacation experience for families of all ages.
Soak in the Florida sun while the kids and pets play in the private and fully fenced yard. Corner waterfront lot offers a tropical paradise and the heated pool ensures year round use (optional pool baby gate gives added peace of mind).
The 20 ft dock, on the confluence of two saltwater canals, is great for fishing or watching for dolphins, manatees and pelicans. There are 3 families of nesting Blue Herons that provide great entertainment at dusk each night. We have paddleboards and a kayak available for use
The house was entirely redecorated in 2014 to provide a neutral/coastal living vibe. Linen service is included in the cleaning fee.
Younger kids will love the well stocked toy collection. We have baby items too! For your convenience the home is also equipped with wireless internet and satellite TV ( no additional cost)
Owners are local and less than 5 minutes away, enabling us to make sure all of your vacation needs are met.
We lived in this home, until recently, with 4 year old twins and two dogs- so believe me when that this house is really designed to make life as easy and worry free as possible! With over 20 sets of happy visitors, we know you will enjoy it as much as we have.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have about your upcoming vacation!

We have lived in Saint Petersburg on and off for 10 years. Our careers move us around, but we can't find anywhere we would rather be than here. We enjoy the fun, friendly, active vibe that St. Pete has to offer!

Location, location, location!
Walkable to EVERYTHING! Morning waterfront walks and parks, coffee shop next door, Weekend downtown festivals, every great restaurant!
Easy in/out of this 4-story complex is great, and beats the experience in all the neighboring multi-million dollar high-rises (my opinion)
It's so refreshing to not have to get into the car all weekend long. The friendly neighbors in this community are always a delight. We've met so many interesting people in our short time here.
We are through the first week of a one month stay and really love this house. First of all, everything works! We have had no trouble with any feature, fixture or appliance, save a couple of burned out light bulbs. There is plenty of room (more than we need, but we are expecting a visitor for one week) and the house is bright, modern and clean.
The yards are both tightly fenced, so we have no worries leaving the dogs on their own if we come in for a refreshment or to make a meal.
The grounds are very well maintained by a local company -- perfectly groomed lawns and shrubs make you feel like you are in a villa at a resort -- expect there is no one to bring fresh ice on command! Having a heated pool has been good, since the weather has cooled down since we arrived. The yard is peaceful and there is very little activity on the canal, so extremely private. Grocery shopping, pizza joints and other local amenities are fairly close, as is the downtown which we have visited several times for movies, the Saturday Market and just to walk the dogs along the bay front. There is public tennis at the park east of the pier. Not having a telephone is a bit of a problem, but since we knew it in advance, we bought a TracFone when we got into the USA and are using that as our everyday telephone. My wife made all the arrangements with the owners and she found them easy to get along with and very helpful with information, access to the house when we first arrived and last minute details. We still have 3 weeks t go, but I expect that we will remain totally satisfied. I would recommend this to anyone with pets or children who want a good location, pleasant property and good renting experience.
Recommended for: Families with teenagers, people with disabilities, sightseeing, age 55+, romantic getaway, families with young children, girls getaway, pet owners.

We just returned from two wonderful weeks staying in this home in March 2015. The VRBO description was accurate and the owners were professional and easy to deal with. We have rented several properties through VRBO. Most places try to lure you in with a low price then nickel and dime you to death with additional fees. This property stood out because there were no extra fees or add-ons for linens, extra people or pets. Everything you need is included in the price. This was a refreshing change from the normal. We had an issue with the air conditioner and the owners had a repairman fix it the same day. Blue skis and 80 degrees sure beat minus 4 degrees when we left Cincinnati for St Petersburg. If you travel with your pets this is the perfect place to stay.

We stayed for two months in this wonderful house and enjoyed every minute of our vacation. The property looks exactly, if not better, than depicted on the photos and the pool and view really are that nice! The owners are very gracious and extremely willing to help, which made our stay even more comfortable and pleasant. Due to their diligence and care there were no real concerns or problems at all, and the few questions we had were answered promptly and smoothly. The property was stylish and clean with thoughtful touches everywhere. It offered everything one might need, even for an extended stay. The house was more spacious than it seems on the pictures and accommodated our two families (including 5 teenagers!) perfectly. Its location is beautiful and sitting around the pool and looking out on the water never stopped to be amazing, whatever the hour. The house is conveniently located and very close to anything one could possibly desire: a variety of restaurants, several grocery shops, nail salons, a gym, the best frozen yoghurt place on earth, a bowling alley, movies, museum, a golf course… It is also close to downtown St. Pete, which is always worth a visit and just across the bridge from Tampa. The owners provided a couple of bikes and it was very easy and pleasant to explore the area. There were several parks in close proximity where kids can play soccer, basketball and tennis. If we preferred to be on the water, we would take the provided canoes for a wonderful outing along the canals right behind the house. We had an amazing time, are looking forward to returning and can’t recommend this house more highly!
I cannot say enough good things about this house! It was perfect for our needs (accommodating four small families with little ones). The house seemed much larger than the photos suggest! The decor inside was very nice and the beds were comfortable. We had so much fun enjoying the beautiful pool and sitting outside drinking coffee in the morning. I didn't have have to worry about anything for my one year old---everything was safe and there were plenty of things for her to do/explore. The homeowner was gracious enough to offer any baby/kid items necessary! I did not want to leave we enjoyed it that much! Given the opportunity/need, I would definetly rent again!
We live locally, so we can offer personal recommendations or experience for just about anything you would need. Just let us know!
