Relaxing Serenity Cottage, a spacious family home, is located 1 1/2 blocks from beautiful St Pete Beach, is an ideal location for any season whether you are looking for winter sun or a summer seaside escape. Relax in this clean, quiet and relaxing cottage in a convenient location, with easy access to the area's wonderful activities. Serenity Cottage is just steps from the sparkling Gulf of Mexico water of St Pete Beach with secluded access to lovely Upham Beach, an area tucked away from the rest of busy St Pete Beach. No need to cross a busy street to get to the beach either !
Lose yourself inside the coziness of Serenity Cottage- 3 comfortable bedrooms with 4 bathrooms, plus an outdoor shower, hardwood floors, wood-burning fireplace in the master suite, 2 spacious family rooms, backyard pool and patio, fully equipped kitchen, front porch with breezes year round….. all the while knowing that beach heaven is just steps away on glorious St Pete Beach, just 1 ½ blocks away. Our favorite day is getting out to the beach early in the morning, enjoying a delicious breakfast seaside at the beachfront Paradise Grillle with the locals and a few seagulls, then setting up shop right on the beach with our all-day gazebo. We can enjoy the beautiful, quiet Upham Beach all day, and walk back to the Cottage for a mid-day siesta, maybe a quick lunch. Paradise Grille is also perfect for lunch or snacks! Then, heading back to the all-day gazebo for more fun-in-the-sun, swimming, walking along the beach until its time to sit back and relax to wait for another one of those beautiful sunsets St Pete Beach is so famous for !
But if excitement is what you desire, a short walk or drive gives you a choice of several other award-winning beaches, including Pass-A-Grille, Indian Rocks and Madeira Beach; Clearwater Beach and Ft DeSoto are about a 30 minute car ride away each. No car is needed in the immediate area though.
A charming retreat near the sea, Serenity Cottage is comfortable, well-equipped and in a perfect location
My husband and I live nearby in Tampa, Florida. I am a native Tampan (very rare in these parts) and my husband is a tranplanted New Yorker. We both enjoy so many of the same things - family, friends and our beautiful Florida weather and everything that comes with it. Buying our own beach home last year was a dream-come-true for me, as my parents owned a beach cottage for many years in nearby beautiful Clearwater Beach. My parents entertained hundreds of friends and family over the 20 years they owned their home, and now my husband and I look forward to doing the same with our beach home. We invite you to share in our memories and begin to make your own here, in our lovely beach cottage.
Serenity Cottage will make your tropical vacation dreams come true ! Nothing is missing, and we continually strive to make sure everything is included to make your stay perfect! Serenity Cottage even has monitored ADT alarm system for your comfort. Everything is steps away, including countless ice cream shops - our favorite after-dinner delight. From street fairs to fishing at the shore, there is something for everyone in your family. Welcome to ours !
You will feel at home as soon as you enter Serenity Cottage! Our goal is to have you breathe a deep sigh of relaxation as soon as you step in! We use it ourselves on available weekends, and although we only travel 30 minutes from our full-time home in Tampa, as soon as we step in, we feel as though we traveled to our own island resort paradise. Why do I say resort? Its as if 'everything is included' in our area - beaches, bars, countless restaurant, pubs, seafood shantys, ice cream shops, gift shops, bait shop at the corner steps away, fast-food restaurants steps away.....there is almost everthing you could possibly need a short walk or bike ride away. Unless you want groceries at a short 3 minutes car-ride away, or do some beautiful area sight-seeing, there is literally no need for a car - its our own resort home, and would like to make it yours as well !
