This unit was PERFECT! The amenities, cleanliness, location, and access to the beach exceeded our expectations. We have a family of 6 and everyone felt comfortable, rested, and enjoyed every moment of hours on the private beach, time spent on the deck watching gorgeous sunsets and fireworks on the 4th.
Upon arrival, we noticed how clean the unit was. With the flooring choices, it was easy to do a quick sweep a few times a day to collect any sand. The day would start with coffee on the top patio, watching the waves roll in, seeing schools of fish swimming by on the beach, and occasionally seeing dolphins past the sandbar. We would load up a cooler and set up camp on the beach with three umbrellas at the unit and 4 beach chairs. If the kids needed a break (our kids are a little older), it was a quick walk back to the house. We could sit on the beach and look back, seeing them having snacks or playing guitar on the deck.
We rented skimboards and paddle boards from the surf shop right across the street, and would take a quick walk to 7-11 about a block away for Slurpees and snacks. Publix was a quick 3 minute drive up the street for groceries. The location was perfect. You were only a quick drive away from the hubbub at the main Treasure Island resorts and John's Pass. We were also just a short drive from downtown St. Petersburg where we visited the Dali museum on a cloudy morning.
Would highly recommend pizza at Britt's Pizza, and gelato at Larry's in St. Pete's Beach. We are definitely coming back next year to rent this place!
