From the moment you step inside this tranquil, waterfront home, you will feel relaxed, comfortable, and ready to start your vacation! This historic house will offer beach living at its best!

This original house was built in 1925, and was the first house on St. Pete Beach. Even then they recognized its perfect location! Upon entry, you will look up to 25-foot vaulted, wood-planked ceilings and original hard-wood floors. Straight ahead, past the living room and out the kitchen window, you will notice there is a wide water view. The breathtaking long view of the McPherson Bayou will intrigue you, and draw you into the kitchen, to fully experience the entire water view of the beautiful Bayou. But first, as you enter the living room, you will see a gorgeous 5 foot long salt water aquarium on your left, that has been built into the wall, and will surely put a smile on your face upon arrival. On your right, a 52' flat screen TV for your enjoyment, along with a stereo and surround sound. There you will see stairs leading to the balcony that overlooks the main living area and a door that leads to the 2nd Floor bedroom. Once you enter the 2nd Floor Bedroom, you will see another staircase, leading to the 3rd Floor.

The 3rd floor provides a 360 degree panoramic view from a great spot right on St Pete Beach! This is a great place to watch the sunset or firework shows. The Gulf and McPherson Bayou are a sight to see from this view! This is truly the most unique room of the house...just open the windows and feel the sea breeze!!

Back downstairs, the dining room is open to the kitchen, overlooking the water view of McPherson Bayou. The dining room table is salvaged-wood seating 8, and with the addition of 2 leaves, the table seats 12 people. Two gorgeous Maritime lights hang over this table.

We have seen Dolphins at play, and a Manatee couple who have been visiting us for 3 years now! If you see them, they love to drink fresh water from the hose, and love to eat greens such as spinach and greens! It is such a privilege for us to see these animals appear to us in their natural habitat! This waterway is also a 10-15 minute boat ride into the open Gulf waters.

This large 2400 sq. ft home has all the luxurious amenities and upgrades such as stainless steel appliances, including a gas range (natural gas) Wolf Stove and griddle in the middle; top-of-the-line Electrolux Refrigerator, Dishwasher and Front Load Washer/Dryer. Furnishings from Tommy Bahama, Restoration Hardware, and antiques accent this home throughout.

The property has been renovated and restored. The bedrooms have plush, comfortable bedding, plenty of closet space or dressers, lamps, fans, and each with it's own flat-screen television! We've even provided a Full and Queen size air mattress. The Master Bedroom has access to a deck just outside doors that lead to the backyard, and an attached bathroom with a heated jacuzzi tub, double shower heads, double sinks, and even speakers with its own volume control, so you can enjoy listening to music as you are getting ready. The Mother-in-Law Suite is equipped with a full bathroom and kitchenette, including a fridge and microwave for your convenience. The 4th bedroom can easily access the full bathroom near the front entry.

The Laundry Room is newly built and with ultimate convenience in mind, including Electrolux Front Load Washer/Dryer and separate wash sink.

Outside in the front of the property, you will find a 60X40 yard surrounded with beautiful, tropical landscaping. Aligning the fence is bamboo, royal palms, fox tail and fish tail trees, jasmine, birds of paradise, and a variety of other plants. The yard alone is large enough to park about 5 cars if needed. The driveway can fit an additional 3 cars.

In the backyard area there is a 6 person hot-tub complete with an overhead cold shower and misting nozzles unseen anywhere else! On the waterfront side of the hot tub, there is a table with seating for 4, next to the original wood-burning fireplace. There is a hammock between two tall palms and beyond the gate, a huge dock with a fish table and shower, and plenty of room to pull your boat up!

We have equipped the home with two kayaks and four beach cruiser bikes for your complete beach experience! There is also WiFi, DVD players, Iron, Hairdryer, Linens, Towels, Kitchen Utensils, Laundry Detergent, Drier Sheets, Household Cleaners, Paper Towels, Toilet Paper, Guest Napkins, and everything you would expect of a true luxury vacation home!

****All products used are organic & biodegradable****

There are speakers throughout the main living area, Master Bedroom & bathroom, kitchen, 3rd floor where there is another volume control, front yard and left side of backyard (near hot tub), which plays music of your choice, to enhance your mood.

LOCATION! LOCATION! This home is situated in the heart of St. Pete Beach, directly behind La Casa del Pane and Gigi's Italian Restaurant, and a 24-hour Walgreens is located right across the street. Pass-A-Grille, the Historic Don Cesar, Corey Avenue, a variety of bars, restaurants, and shopping are just a walk or beach cruiser ride away!

Also, there is a Free Transportation Service on the beach - Information for this service will be provided upon arrival.

Best of all: BRING YOUR PETS! We are pet lovers and welcome your furry friends! Lido Park & Kid Playground is just 1 block away! It is not gated, but is dog & kid friendly, and is well maintained. There is doggy disposable bags there, but sometimes the box is empty. There are new exercise bars that have been installed in the park, and new kids play ground equipment as well.

We have visited many beaches throughout the world and St. Pete Beach, being voted one of the best beaches, grabbed our hearts immediately. St. Pete Beach offers a calm, tranquil atmosphere, where the Gulf waters are always warm, and the pristine white sands along the coast are always beautiful. This relaxed, small-town atmosphere provides a setting for a great life! This house was first built on St. Pete Beach in 1925, 2 years before the Historic Don Cesar was built. The property was originally built by a land developer who used the 3rd story lookout to show prospective buyers a birds-eye view of the cow pastures that would some day become 'Bella Vista'. It has been said that a short time after, a local celebrity, Silas Dent, had used the house when he moved his dairy farm to Bella Vista. It had even been used as a stable at that time!

There are many stories about the house we have gathered from a variety of people...some say it was a market, used as a post office, firehouse, dairy farm, and others say it had a realtor's office in the back. It then changed hands and stayed in a local family for decades.

We eventually found it, thought it was charming and extremely unique and couldn't believe how perfect the house was for us. While renovating, we lived in it, and even had our wedding reception there with over 100 people! We then decided it would be a great place to have others experience this magical house and create their own experiences and memories while on vacation here.

You will truly enjoy this house and its central location to everything you could see on St. Pete Beach. We know you will have an unforgettable vacation!

Festive Relaxation!

We stayed here for 10 days starting 12/26 through New Year's. The house was beautifully decorated for Christmas, with an abundance of nutcracker soldiers, garland, and of course, a tree! The layout was perfect. Bedrooms are spaced apart, so everyone can sleep peacefully. The master bath is amazing, with both a jacuzzi tub and a walk-in shower with two shower heads. The kitchen was well-equipped and even stocked with many extras, including a wine fridge and liquor cabinet! The saltwater fish tank was a hit, as well as the super comfy couch and 500 million DVDs. We hooked our iPad up to the giant TV and I was able to do yoga in front of the couch. The sound system was impressive. We didn't spend much time on the third floor, but it does have a great view (and a mini-fridge!)

We also enjoyed fishing on the dock, and despite the freezing temps (we were there during the cold front), we did spend time out in the backyard (but somehow never got in the hot tub!) Unlike other home rentals, this one truly did have everything you need, including cleaning supplies, paper goods, even straws for your drinks! Because we were there for so long (10 days), we did need to restock a couple of things, but there is plenty to get you started. Our 7-year-old twins loved the cat that lives outside and named him Wolfie!

We loved the neighborhood, including Walgreen's, La Casa del Pane, Publix and Gator Jim's (for poles and bait), Bongo's, and Cafe Luna. Jennifer was always very responsive and friendly. The duct system took a little bit of adjusting to (not used to it since I'm from Hawaii), but a small price to pay for a wonderful place. We slept well, felt very relaxed, and just enjoyed being together. A perfect stay for our family!

We walked into the house and it was completely decorated including a Christmas tree for the holidays! Made me cry! Amazing that Jamie and Jennifer took the time to make their house a home for us! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The kitchen is wonderful and great for group cooking (we had 8 people in there). My husband loved the master bath shower! The dock is perfect for fishing. My sons brought their kayaks and we had a fishing excursion of four kayaks! Great fun. It is so convenient to everything but quiet. The bikes were awesome and we biked to the ice cream place and back. Would definitely recommend this house/home!

We had an amazing time post Thanksgiving at this beautiful home in St. Pete. The house is just as described in the listing and the location is perfect, within walking distance to beautiful St. Pete beach, restaurants, pharmacy, bakery, etc, etc. The property was very clean and well maintained. Jennifer was wonderful! Very easy to work with and extremely helpful -- was able to answer our questions right away! We would love to rent this property again and have already recommended to other family members!

Cannot wait to come back!!!

Three families stayed here for a long weekend, and we could not have found a more suitable, comfortable, and gorgeous place to stay! With two master suites, the adults were all comfortable, and the kids loved the rooms upstairs. The kitchen was perfect, the backyard amazing, and the kayaks were used within minutes of our arrival. Fresh lattes and sandwiches at la casa de pane next door were delicious (not to mention their array of pastries), and while I did not get to Gigi's, I hear the food is tasty!

Jennifer and Jamie were great to rent from, and we really look forward to coming back to this house again!!!
