I am a Floridian born and raised right here in St. Petersburg. I grew up in this house. I went from kindergarden to college right here in town. My Dad used to build Airplanes and take off and land from the back yard. It's a very special place to me. More than my home, It's my heritage. I still live here in town I'm a local girl. But when my kids grew up and out of the house. I just didn't need a five bedroom home anymore. So what better thing to do, is to share this land with people who can appreciate the private wild life and lifestyle I call home.
Jill Long purchased this house in 2004
This is family property. I grew up here. My kids grew up here. It has been passed down from my parents. There is no better place to call home. It's like growing up in a private park. We used to ride our horses down the beach when were kids. It's just a great place to be!
It's just that... Unique. Where else can you find 12 acres of pure privacy on the water that can house a full family and more! Less than a mile to the Gulf of Mexico white sandy beaches. Fish or Kayak from the yard. It's just a piece of Heaven. And minutes to Shopping, Restaurants, Golf and more!
We spent an awesome week in this home and it was perfect for 3 generations (14 in all)!
Room to gather or space for privacy. Jill was great to work with.
I selected this property as a "Staycation" and would definitely rent it again. The 12 acre property made for fabulous fun on the water. The owner made plenty of water activities available (canoe, kayak, fishing). Small cove made for great protected 'practice area' for younger kids. House itself is a little dated (think 70's!), but highly functional and comfortable, with a well-equipped kitchen. After another property owner (Mark Anthony, property #3523798) cheated me out of $100 and left me hanging without a property on short notice, Jill restored my faith in the home rental experience. Having rented more than a dozen properties to date, her place is the hands-down winner for outdoor entertaining and enjoyment!
This property is absolutely amazing and there are really no others like it in the area. We rented the property for several days to house our wedding ceremony and reception on the expansive property. Jill was an absolute joy to work with and did so much to help us and getting the property ready for our 100+ guests. We also used the house for the wedding party to stay the nights leading up to the wedding which worked out so well! We put the guys upstairs with the ladies on the lower level. We had more than enough room to spread out and really enjoy the experience. I really can't say enough good things about this property. We can't wait to rent it again just for a long weekend to relax!
My husband and I were looking for a local place to get married. We were both born and raised here in Florida, and we wanted to take advantage of the natural beauty.
This property was PERFECT! The house was large enough to fit family and friends that came to help. Everything was clean, fresh, and easy to find. The landscape gave us tons of options to do exactly what we wanted and with all the space we didn't bother any of the neighbors. We had the ceremony just behind the house facing the water right before sunset. Absolutely stunning!
Jill was so kind to us while we were there. She made sure that we had everything we needed and any questions we had she was happy to answer.
My husband and I are very happy with our experience, and we intend to bring our family back when they come down for another visit!
We rented this property over Christmas and New Year. Wife, dogs and I drove down from NOVA and daughters and their families flew into Tampa from the UK for a grand family reunion and Christmas together. The house is larger inside then it seems from the photographs in the listing and the furniture is most comfortable and well organized. The layout of the bedrooms and en-suites allowed the 3 generations of everyone their own space which made for happiness and harmony as well as the ability to get a good nights sleep. We used the well equipped kitchen extensively, dining together every night and were so happy to be able to have our Christmas Day lunch outside in the wonderful grounds around the house followed by lots of fun in the open. We were all particularly grateful to Jill, the owner, for setting up lovely Christmas decorations including a large tree before we arrived. It was such a nice thoughtful touch!
The grounds around the house are huge and we were able to canoe, fish, take lots of photographs at sunrise and sunset, exercise the dogs, have cycle races, play football, touch rugby, exhaust a toddler in a good way and had we had some bats, balls and wickets could have had a game of cricket! My wife cycled around a local trail early most mornings. We were all able to relax and recharge out batteries too in the beautiful surroundings. We didn’t watch much TV at all but could have done on any of the sets in the bedrooms and living room.
We didn’t see too much of the neighbors because of the size of the place but what interaction we had was most friendly and cordial. It’s an easy stroll up to some local restaurants. Spotos Grill was always busy and seemed to be a neighborhood favorite. The Winn Dixie was always well stocked and the staff friendly and helpful. We were spoiled for choice for good restaurants, coffee shops and bars all just a few minutes away in the cars.
Our stay there was over too quickly and we all will look back on it as one of our best Christmases ever.
We spent a spectacular week (in spite of the rain) at this unbelievable home. There were 5 adults and 4 children. It is so well laid out, everyone had plenty of space. The children especially enjoyed catching the lizards and fishing from the backyard. Everything you need and are unable to bring is there. The owner was most accomodating. I told her before we came that we had 4 children in our group, and she went out and purchased enough fishing rods for all of them. She also brought beach towels for us to use. I have never stayed anywhere that the owner met your needs like this. I call this the "Perfect Vacation House". I feel so blessed to have been able to stay here. Thank you JIll.
