RELAXING COTTAGE-5 MINUTE WALK TO THE WHITE SANDS OF STUNNING ST PETE BEACH

St Pete Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 12! Be Our Guest - 3 Bedroom, 4 Bath Home-and A Private Outdoor Shower !

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.

Teresa Bennett purchased this cottage in 2012

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 !

Perfect Family Beach House

  • 5 of 5
My family of 6, including 3 teens and an 11-year-old, had a great vacation here! Unfortunately, the weather wasn't as perfect as we would have liked, but the house allowed us to enjoy ourselves despite the wind and rain. We were close enough to go to the beach for a little while and return when sprinkles started to fall. The house has wifi, televisions and books which kept everyone happy when we couldn't be outside. When the waves kicked up at the beach, we took the boogie boards from the house to do some body surfing. The owners supply ample beach towels, bath towels, linens, and dishes. We were walking distance from some great restaurants (everything from fast food to a fancy tapas place!) and beach shops. When we wanted to eat in, we found the grill was in good condition, and there were plenty of pots and pans for cooking indoors.

Beautiful beach cottage

  • 5 of 5
Very clean! Beautiful home with beautiful furnishings. Very close to the beach, 5 minute walk! Owners have thought of every possible need for the guests. Beach umbrellas, beach chairs & towels, board games, linens, kitchen ware & etc. Very comfortable beds too! Our only regret was not staying longer!

We are all very happy

  • 5 of 5
We love the place! It's clean, nicely decorated, with sufficient supplies (kitchen, beddings, other household consumables). The 4 bathrooms are rare to find and very useful for us big group(9 people). And owner Teresa is very helpful before and during our stay. We all like to come back! Thank you again Teresa!

Cozy home with great location

  • 4 of 5
This home was great for our large family and the listing description was accurate. The best feature of the home was its location - walking distance to the beach and to many restaurants including Woody's which was our favourite. All other amenities within short drive. We also loved the sunken living room which was right of the backyard pool and the outdoor shower which was used many times. The owners were very welcoming and helpful.

Idyllic

  • 5 of 5
Idyllic place to stay! The description of the property is accurate, well if truth be told it undersells itself. It looks good in the photos but is even better in reality. Teresa has thought of everything. The beds are comfortable. The bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and every other room are spotlessly clean. The kitchen has every utensil you could think of. Even though there are nice places to eat nearby we only ate out once preferring to relax after a day on the beach or the golf course and eat in. The property is very close to the beach but there is a small pool in the backyard which is a great alternative. The owners are very easy to deal with. They are kind, thoughtful and really want to make you feel at home. I can't recommend this property highly enough ( though there is some reluctance in case it becomes overbooked in the future!). Finally one of our group left his wallet behind. It was found and returned by Teresa. One final example of first class service.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5
It's hard to overrate this lovely house. The house is just a five minute walk from miles of beautiful white sand beach and lies on a quiet side street. There is a wide range of shops, from small to large, including pharmacies and supermarkets, within a short drive or indeed a walk from the house. The same is true of restaurants, bars and cafés, ranging from simple neighbourhood spots to more formal dining experiences. A wide range of prices is also available.

Our travel plans changed a couple of times due to snow storms, but the owner was most accommodating. Rather than leave us to find an estate agents's office or to fumble with a lock box, she met us at the house and showed us around, explaining the house's various amenibnities and welcomed us.

A lot of holiday house rentals are rather empty and sterile, but this is clearly a loved family home. It is genuinely Tardis like. The photos don't give a true impression of just how roomy everything is. A lovely sitting room flows into an equally nice dining room. Then comes an expansive kitchen-diner and family room leading out to the pool. One of our number is a keen cook and found the kitchen to be very well appointed and conveniently arranged. The bedrooms are equally nice, retaining features of its 1920s construction while being thoroughly updates. I doubt that there were many en-suites as nice as these in 1920. A personal favourite element for me was the outdoor shower, not simply a tap to wash off sand but a genuine hot and cold running shower. If you live in a part of the world, as I do, which is often wet, cold and dark, showering outside in brilliant sunshine was a very holiday-ish thing to be able to do.

An excellent, friendly welcome, a beautiful home and fine surroundings make this an opportunity not to be missed. We look forward to returning!
