Chuck & Kathy Kasper live in the Tampa Bay Area. We purchased this property to put our dreams in to action and enjoy the St. Pete Beach area that we love so much! We took on this project with the vision to create a place that everyone can come and enjoy to get away. Chuck is the renovation visionary and executor, while Kathy pays attention to all the design details that make it a home away from home. No corners were cut or short cuts made when we put this plan in motion. Together we have created a space we know you will enjoy just as much as we do. Kathy was born and raised in Tampa, FL, Chuck was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA and moved to Tampa 35yrs ago.
Chuck Kasper purchased this bungalow in 2013
Chuck & Kathy chose St. Pete Beach for it's convenient location and easy access to highways to travel home. We love the local establishments we visit just walking distance away with many options and variety to choose from. We have been coming to St. Pete Beach for years and also have several friends who have relocated to this area. It was a dream of ours to own a vacation rental, and maybe one day a small hotel or inn, to host visitors in beautiful sunny Florida.
Not only is this location incredibly convenient to everything, but we have created a unique setting. What is a boutique beach bungalow? It's a setting that we provide our guests premium accommodations with privacy, no hotel hassles or crowds getting in your way. Fully equipped amenities and surroundings.
The location of this bungalow is second to none. Basically, anything you may want to do on the beach is within easy walking distance of this bungalow. The place has been recently updated and is very neat and clean. In addition, the owners are very responsive to any of your needs or concerns regarding the place.
Truly lovely place. Clean and well kept, modern and charming. This would have been a 5 star review were it not for the fact that, we rented outside VBRO parameters, direct from the owner (after initiating contact thru VBRO). We paid the rent to him directly, paid a hefty security deposit, and left the place in excellent (same) condition. Two days post occupancy, we received a voice mail and video that the microwave was ruined, suggesting we put metal in the microwave (who does that?????) and advising we were losing our entire deposit. We emailed the owner but never received a response (we've waited 4 months hoping for some response) We cannot imagine what happened between when we left, and the two days that elapsed when we were advised our security deposit was being taken, but we do most certainly wish we had rented thru VBRO, paying a nominal amount for damage insurance and perhaps gaining a bit of recourse, or perhaps avoiding this issue altogether. Lesson learned - shame on us for not renting thru VBRO, or perhaps shame on the owner for tendering a written, in person lease versus using the VBRO process?
We rented this property for two months. It was above our expectations. The photos and description do not do the property justice. It was recently updated and very clean. A perfect location; a quick walk to the beach and many great restaurants. Chuck and Kathy are wonderful hosts. We plan on returning!
We came for a much needed vacation and truly loved our stay. The bungalow is charming, comfortable and in a great location! It's a block from the beach, in walking distance to some delicious restaurants and fun tiki bars. And, we brought our dog who enjoyed playing in the back yard (which is completely fenced in). My husband and I really enjoyed our stay and can't wait to go back!
My wife and I decided to take our two granddaughters to the beach for a week. We couldn't have picked a nicer place to stay. It's one of those places where you really don't want to leave. The owners thought of everything we felt like we were at home. Everything you need is close by from stores, restaurants, beach and entertainment. We rented 1 and 3 and had more than enough room. We spent a lot of time sitting out on the back porch relaxing and at a near by beach. We are definitely going back.
We LOVED this place! My husband and I stayed at the Mermaid Beach Bungalow for the month of July during his away rotation at Tampa General Hospital and couldn't have been happier with this adorable beach cottage. Chuck and his wife were absolutely fantastic and accommodating and did everything they could to make us feel right at home. You can walk to everything; the beach, restaurants, drug stores, grocery stores, etc which was exactly what we were looking for. No detail was left out when they renovated this home which came with everything you could possibly need for a great vacation; beach cruisers, TVs in each room, wireless internet, coolers for the beach, robes, washer and dryer and so much more. Since I work from home, we were able to turn in the lovely granite counter top island into a perfect little office space. We also had our two chocolate labs down with us and they enjoyed the fenced in backyard and had plenty of room to play. Some of our favorite places to eat/drink were Ricks Reef, T-bones Pizza, Larry's Ice Cream and PCI bar on the beach for some amazing sunsets...all within a short walking distance I seriously couldn't think of a better place to stay for a couple looking to enjoy St. Pete and it might just be better than the pictures even show. Thank you so much Chuck for sharing your home with us. We will be back. To all of you thinking about booking this place...DO IT! It is amazing!
