St Petersburg House Rental Photos and Description

One Of Two Homes In the Same Neighborhood. Second Home 3BR/2BA, Listing #599220

DOCK HOUSE is a 4BR/2BA vacation rental with a private pool, dock and a large screened lanai - porch in an upscale area of St. Petersburg on The Tampa Bay. Pet & child friendly

Enjoy the Florida sun with the whole family in this beautiful four bedroom, two bath, pet friendly, waterfront home in one of St Pete's most prestigious neighborhoods in the desirable (North of Central Avenue) Northeast section of St Petersburg. Family room, kitchen, dining, and lanai all face the water. Full formal living room in the front of the home ensures plenty of room for everyone. This property is located on a cul-de-sac street in a community of well maintained, waterfront homes.

Relax by the pool, and let the kids run free in the private, fully fenced yard with optional (removable and childproof) pool safety gate to ease your mind. Or, tie up your boat to your private dock and the Tampa Bay is at your doorstep. No boat to tie up, no worries, Florida Yacht Charters will pick you up at the dock (see web site below). On a smaller scale, we provide a canoe for use during your stay or, try your hand at fishing, kayaking or stand up paddle boarding.

Enjoy the renowned beaches of St Pete, Clearwater and more, just a short ride from home and, after a day at the beach, leave the hustle and bustle of the crowded, tourist, beach area, and return home to the peace and quiet of this friendly, family neighborhood.

Five minutes from home, the expansive, downtown waterfront of St Pete offers waterfront dining, shopping, music, museums, and outdoor festivities including concerts, street fairs, movies and the famed 'pier.' Take a walk along the Tampa Bay or hop on a dinner or sightseeing cruise.

Take advantage of fishing, golfing, water sports and, Tropicana Field (home of the Tampa Bay Rays). Parks and playgrounds abound.

Should you decide to pull out all the stops:

YACHT CHARTERS ARE AVAILABLE AT: http://floridayachtscharter.com. Fully staffed vessels ranging from 44' to 110' are available for half day, full day, multiple days, or even week long charters.

About Kim Manghisi

I've been coming down to St Petersburg for many years and look forward to living here full time once the kids finish school. There are always so many things to do and the area is so beautiful. I know you'll love it as much as I do.

Kim Manghisi purchased this house in 2009

Why Kim Manghisi chose St Petersburg

This property is located in a community of beautifully maintained waterfront homes. The homeowners take a great deal of pride in their homes and the neighborhood is friendly and safe. There are a lot of community organized events to take advantage of.

What makes this house unique

I love the convenient location to the downtown St Pete area as well as to St Pete Beach, Clearwater Beach and Tampa. Everything is within a short drive and even Disney World and Sea World are a short 1 hr 20 min drive!! What could be better?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Kim;



As we get settled back into our home after a four month stay in yours, I want to report that we have been more than satisfied with every aspect of our tenure here. We feel we were very fortunate to have come across it as a place to stay during the restoration of our house on Snell Isle.



Although we have lived in St. Petersburg for over 10 years we had never recognized all the merits of your community. The area is only two miles farther from the city center than our place we found it even more quiet and traffic free than our place. It is a very safe neighborhood for walking with a very friendly family oriented feel to it.



Your house is in excellent condition and your furnishings far nicer and more complete than we expected of a rental. We have felt more as though we have been house sitting a nice home.



Cheers,



Hall and Wendy

Great location and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment I initially talked to Kim until check-out, I was pleased with the experience! She is wonderful and took great care to make sure we felt comfortable. The home is in a great location about 10-20 minutes from all the popular beaches. The bedrooms are spacious, and the living area has been newly decorated. This house was an excellent vacation option for our large family. We would definitely recommend and hope to visit again in the future!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Sandra. You and your husband were a pleasure. Finding guests such as yourselves is as enjoyable for an owner as finding the right vacation rental is for a guest.

I'm so glad everything worked out in the end after the initial uncertainty about whether you would be able to come! Your family is welcome anytime.

Warmest Regards,
Kim

Wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5
This house is perfect for a family. We rented it for our daughters wedding at St Pete Womans Club. It's close by downtown. The pictures show exactly what you get. The owner was great to work with. She returned our deposit the day after we left.

Delightful

  • 5 of 5
I rented this home so that my family could attend a bridal shower for my future niece. The house was perfect for us. The lanai was nice for us to just relax and watch the fish jump. The home is pet friendly and the back yard is totally fenced in which is great for both pets and small children. The kitchen was well stocked and there was plenty of room for everyone to get together for meals. Bedrooms were comfy and nicely decorated. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and I only wish I would have had more time to stay down there. I will definitely book this property next time I come to St. Petersburg!

Owner's Response: Thank you Kay. I continue to be blessed with wonderful guests.

I've had a lot of guests this year who are trying vacation rentals for the first time, and loving it. I tried it for the first time with my family only a couple of years ago and we love it too.

I enjoy sharing my home with guests! You're welcome back anytime.

Best,
Kim

Wonderful Accomodations.

  • 5 of 5
When we started planning this trip for a small reunion in St. Petersburg, we checked a few place on VBRO, and after exchanged emails and a phone conversation we settled on 465308. Great location and a very accommodating owner who work very hard to be sure we would enjoy ourselves. We had 8 folks stay at the house which was four bedrooms on the canal. I would recommend this property very highly, very easy to work with and we had a great time.

A great family vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had 7 people who stayed in this house and it was perfect!!! Plenty of room and very comfortable. We loved the lanai and spent every morning sitting out there enjoying the view of the water and watching the fish jump. We also loved the pool. It was a little bit of a pain that during the day the vacuum was on and we had to continue to avoid it but it kept the pool very clean. The neighborhood was very quiet and a very nice area. We absolutely loved the access to the two small coolers that were in the garage, we took them everyday and filled them with our drinks and lunch. This was the first time that we rented a house for our vacation and I would totally do it again, it was well worth it. Kim was wonderful and just a phone call away if we needed her. She also left us a great gift basket that was greatly appreciated by all of us. The house was very clean, plenty of towels and beach towels. We absolutely loved having access to the washer and dryer to make sure all of our clothes were clean before we left so that we did not have to do them when we got home. I would highly recommend this house. It was exactly how it is shown on this site. Thank you Kim for sharing such a beautiful house.

Owner's Response: Hi Jody,

I remember when I first spoke to your husband about vacation rental properties. He was a little tentative since he hadn't ever done it before and I could completely understand. I remember telling him that he'd be hooked once he tried it. I'm so pleased everything went smoothly.

Oh my gosh, I wish you had mentioned the pool vac being in your way. It can absolutely be taken out of the water if guests want it out. I only ask that guests call me first so that I can talk them through the proper valve closure to take the vac out without harming the pool equipment. The pool vac can't just be pulled out of the water without shutting certain valves first.

I hope you consider visiting again. I'd love to have you. I've enjoyed seeing your pictures on Facebook. Please consider sharing them on my fan page, Tropical Paradise Properties.

Best,
Kim

We were grandparents gathering our far flung children together in St. Petersburg, where one child lives. This home was perfect to satisfy many different wants and needs. Great attention has been paid to safety for young children, which was greatly appreciated. The home is spacious with plenty of sleeping/gathering space and our fishermen and children enjoyed the dock. (One grandchild caught their very first fish here. So excited!) The swimming pool was a big hit with all and the kitchen was well appointed to enable us to cook together. The owner, Kim, was really wonderful. So kind and attentive and the rental process went so smoothly. We highly recommend this property, having enjoyed it very much, and we hope to return in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you kindly Janalee. I love my appreciative guests, and I'm so fortunate that virtually all of my guests are wonderfully appreciative.

Thank you for being able to see behind the scenes with regard to my priorities concerning safety, and providing good customer service. Nothing gives me more joy than to have the guests' experience go seamlessly.

I'm glad the home provided spaciousness and comfort for all. There are several "central" gathering spaces in the home to choose from, and I'm so thrilled about your grandchild's first fish. Creating memories is what so much of life is all about, and I love knowing the memories that are created during guests' stays.

Please come again and feel free to share your pics on my Facebook Page, Tropical Paradise Properties.

Best,
Kim
