MODERN NEWLY RENOVATED POOL HOME IN GREAT NEIGHBORHOOD NEAR WATER

St Petersburg House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bdrm 2 Bath, sleeps 6 1595 Sq. Ft home with pool steps to Tampa Bay

Enjoy your next Florida family vacation at ‘Il Dolce Far Niente’ (The Sweetness of Doing Nothing) in our beautiful rental home in lovely Bahama Shores in St. Petersburg, Florida. Watch beautiful sunrises less than a two minute walk away, in the quiet neighbourhood that was the location for the movie ‘Cocoon’. From the oak lined brick boulevard, past the huge, incredible banyan trees to the waterfront park, this small, quiet community on Tampa Bay offers a wonderful getaway location for your family.

Relax on the patio and in the pool in or drive 8 miles to the sun and sands of St. Pete Beach, just one of the beautiful beaches in the area. 12 miles away, experience nature and quiet beaches at Fort DeSoto Park, ‘Travelers’ Choice 2013 Winner’ for beaches. Drive 5 miles to downtown St. Petersburg for dining, night life and sightseeing at museums and galleries including the incredible Dali Museum and Chihuly blown glass exhibit. And in March, experience the roar of the engines through the downtown streets during the St. Petersburg Grand Prix. In under an hour’s drive, you will find yourself in Tampa, Bradenton and Sarasota where you can enjoy shopping, dining, culture and more beaches!

Newly renovated in 2103, our open floor plan 3 bedroom, 2 full baths home comfortably sleeps 6. Fresh paint in great colours accent the new bamboo floors throughout. A mix of modern and vintage, this eclectic home features original art and modern decor in a relaxing setting. Close the 3 pocket doors to ensure privacy and quiet or open them for easy flow through the house.

Retire or relax in the nautical themed master suite with a king bed, full ensuite bath and large walk-in closet. On the other side of the living area are 2 more bedrooms separated by another full bathroom. One features a tropical decor with a queen bed while the other has an ocean decor with twin beds, which can be converted to another king, if requested. Each bedroom features a ceiling fan, new flat screen television with cable and DVD player and duvets in fresh, clean covers for every guest! All bedrooms are tastefully decorated in coastal themes and furnished with lovely mid-century furnishings. New modern cabinets and lighting accent both bathrooms. All linens, towels and beach towels are here.

Enjoy movie night on sleek leather furniture in the living room, in front of a 55” Smart TV with Blu-ray, cable with DVR, HBO and Netflix. Keep in touch with wireless internet and a phone with free long distance and calls to Canada. Prepare meals in the brand new, bright, fully equipped modern kitchen overlooking the pool, with stunning grey cabinets, colourful pendant lights and granite countertops. Grab a quick bite or serve at the kitchen peninsula. Dine at the gorgeous mid-century Danish teak table that comfortably seats at least 6. Eat breakfast, play games, do puzzles or catch up on work (if you must!) in the game room.

Outside, enjoy your morning coffee on the front patio by the garden, under large Live Oak trees. Go for a walk or bike ride in this quiet family neighbourhood and see beautiful native birds, geckos and other wildlife enjoying the day as well. Two patio doors lead to the back patio in the large fenced private yard. Relax by the screen enclosed inground pool on comfortable lounge furniture or grill outside and dine at the outdoor table for 6. No worries if it’s raining – you’ll be protected from rain or sun under the overhang, cooled by lighted fans. Inside the double car garage you’ll find a washer and dryer and if you want to bring your RV or boat there is a large, secure parking area inside the fence. Launch your boat at any of several public areas nearby and enjoy a day in the Gulf fishing, relaxing or looking for dolphins! The nearby activities available are endless; fishing, golf, sporting events and more. Grocery stores, pharmacies and gas are minutes away.

Then, if you are tired from all this activity come back to your ‘home away from home’, and enjoy ‘Il Dolce Far Niente’!

We (Tom & Janna) moved from the Toronto area in Canada to New Jersey in 1990, where we raised our family. In 2011 we purchased our first home in St. Petersburg where we spend our winters, returning to New Jersey in the summer to spend time with our kids and 6 grandchildren. Our visitors were so impressed with this area of St. Petersburg we wanted to provide a location for others to enjoy. We have always enjoyed home renovation and decor so in 2013 we decided to create a home here with quality and style and look forward to meeting new visitors.

Janna Stephan purchased this house in 2013

We wanted a pool home with good bones, in a great neighbourhood, in need of a facelift, that would lend itself to a Mid-Century modern feeling and decor. We we lucky enough to have the opportunity to purchase in beautiful Bahama Shores, a very lovely family area close to the water. Quiet and private but close to fun, food and activities! It's 5 minutes from our home for convenience of care of home and guests.

Divided floor plan with Master bedroom separated from other bedrooms. Pocket doors allow privacy and quiet or open flow. The back patio seating area is covered, with lighted fans. Love it for keeping cool on sunny days or enjoy the outside even in the rain! Nice sized yard with lots of parking and separate pad at side of house, with electrical hookup, for RV or boat.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
I rented this property with my husband, infant daughter, and my sister and her family for our Florida vacation. The house is very beautiful, as seen in the photos. The pool was amazing. I was great to be able to relax in a pool without worrying about bugs! There was a grill in the yard too which was nice. We used it several times during our stay. There were several baby related items such as the pack n play, high chair, and an infant float for the pool for us to use! Thank you for letting us stay in your amazing home.

amazing!

  • 5 of 5
We were looking to get away from NY for a few days with our 5 month old son... booked some flights and started looking for a place to stay. From the minute we spoke with Janna on the phone, I had a good feeling about the place. The house itself was perfect. The pool area was just right, with both sunny and shady areas. The fans in the overhang allowed for more cooling. The pool was just the right temperature. The house has pretty much anything that you can think of. There is a BBQ which we ended up using daily! The house was decorated beautifully and tastefully. Every room had its own theme. They even set up a pack and play for the baby to sleep in! It was our little private oasis for a week. Pictures do not do it justice. However, the thing that really made our stay wonderful was Tom and Janna. They were amazing hosts and wanted to make sure that everything was as we wanted. When you get amazing people who are genuinely caring it shows both in dealing with them directly and the house that you stay in. and then there is the other stuff, close to downtown, supermarket, etc. Would recommend this place in a heartbeat and we’ll probably be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you Kat! It was so great meeting all of you. I was happy our schedule changed so we could get you in. We were very honored that you included us in your long overdue date night! Thanks for the treats you left behind. I have been thoroughly enjoying that butter!!! I hope we see you again next year and see how that little man is growing.

Perfect

This home was absolutely fantastic. Having never rented a house before, I was a bit apprehensive about what to expect. This home totally blew me away. So clean, so well maintained, I was as comfortable as if I were in my own home. We will be back for sure
