Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 with 2 children ages 11 and 8. This property met our needs for our week vacation to Florida and more! You can see the ocean from the LR window and the bay from the kitchen window. Could see dolphin and sting rays while standing at the sink! It was so convenient to the beach, literally a short walk to the sand and the beach was practically private. Free access to beach toys, chairs, umbrellas even a cooler we took with us when we went fishing. The apartment was very clean and well equipped with everything you would need to call it home for the week. We only had to buy food. Washer/dryer on site. Manager, Bruce, was extremely friendly and accomodating. Very laid back and friendly atmosphere which lends to a very relaxing time. Location is very convenient to everything. Grocery store is only a 5 minute or less drive. The cottage sits very close to Gulf Blvd and I woke up in the night a couple times because of the loud trucks going by, but really not that bad! I would definitely recommend this property. We had a lovely vacation (1st time in FL) and would definitely return to this spot.

A charming family-friendly cottage with comfortable beach style furnishings. We rented apartment 1 and 2 to accommodate 5 adults and 2 children for 4 nights. Very comfortable beds. Was clean and ready to move in when we arrived. We liked the cottage being set back from the main house. Beach chairs, umbrellas, and many beach toys for children. We literally only brought our own food. We ate an excellent Sunday brunch at The Pub and played miniature golf at Pirate Cove. Lots of fun beach time. The owner and Bruce were very friendly and helpful. We will visit again!

You will be vacationing on the closest beach to Tampa airport while also secluded from the vacation crowds. We are located in 'The Narrows', so named by the local settlers of the 1920's because the barrier island is so skinny here that there is only room for a single row of homes. The emerald green waters of the Gulf are out your front door and and yachts cruising the channel are out your back door. Water surrounds you like no where else with fantastic tropical views and a true island feeling. Our many repeat guests tell us that this is the most coveted spot on the 12 miles of world class beaches between Clearwater and St Petersburg.
