About Phil

I have lived and worked in the St. Petersburg, Florida area since 1972. I lived in this townhouse for several years until I moved about 30 miles away to Tampa. I still enjoy staying there when it's not rented.

Phil purchased this townhome in 1980

Why Phil chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

My partner and I built this as a two unit condo several years ago. Very few beach front rentals in our area are as close to the water as mine. Most have a long walk to the water and when you're toting beach chairs, a cooler, an umbrella, etc., that's important. It also brings you much closer to the shelling, wading, swimming and the dolphins that frequently swim by and makes you feel more "into" the beach atmosphere. It's a totally different experience than staying 100 to 150 yards from the water, which is the case with most of the other accommodations in our area.

What makes this townhome unique

There is nothing like staying right on a sandy beach. Watching the dolphins swim by in the morning while enjoying breakfast on the back porch was one of my favorites. And the sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico are breathtaking! The photos of the beach say it all.

Picture Perfect Home & Location!

  • 5 of 5

This home has everything you could ever want or need for the perfect beach vacation. The location (directly on the beach) is absolutely amazing and the added feature of the swimming pool was fantastic. My kids spent every day on the beach and in the water building sandcastles and snorkeling for sand dollars. Being able to walk back and forth from the house to the beach at any moment made it so convenient. The listing for this home was completely accurate. The home was immaculate and full of extras (beach towels, beach umbrella, beach chairs, sand shovels, toys, baby floats, gas grill etc.) The owner was responsive and timely with every correspondence. He made the booking experience extremely easy and worry free. I would definitely recommend this property. Hope to visit again next year!

My family came over from Europe to enjoy a week on the beach in Florida. It was wonderful! We had 4 adults and 3 teens and we all enjoyed ourselves 110%. When you first walk into this townhouse, you go "aaahhhh". Beautiful views, rustic charm and perfect location! The rental had all the comforts of home. We didn't use the pool because we loved swimming in the ocean but I can only imagine how nice and refreshing it could be it in the summer. My husband and I stayed in the master suite upstairs; the only challenge we had was the spiral staircase going up and down. The beach was amazing, beach chairs and toys galore. Location was perfect! Publix grocery store down the street. In all, it was a picture perfect vacation worth repeating tomorrow:).

Beautiful Home and Beach

  • 5 of 5

Everything at this rental was absolutely clean with plenty of space and everything that you need. Even the beach chairs are so comfortable and we had many people stop to look at them because of how comfortable they look. The home is very updated with a modern unique classy style. Couldn't ask for better access to the beach and pool- which is bigger than the picture appears. The spiral stairs was a little tricky and there are many staircases and some lofts without privacy but we managed and everything was well. The first few days it rained but watched the surfer's come flocking to the ocean and was pretty cool to watch them with the binoculars; when the weather cleared up the ocean waters were very clear and calm. One night we walked on the beach to "Caddy's on the beach" which had live music and food, across the street from Caddy's was the Tiki Hut ,1200 Chophouse has delicious steaks but check out the menu before going, Tap House has delicious food! We tried to take the ferry to Egmont Key Island but we missed the boat, John Pass is a really nice place to eat and shop. If you are looking for a relaxing clean comfortable rental this is the place with beautiful views of the ocean and a breathtaking view of the sun setting.

Great place to say, short walk to the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Our first all family vacation in 5 years couldn't have been nicer.

the house was spotless with a fully equipped kitchen (that I would die for), tons of bath towels and beach towels. room for 2 cars in the garage and 4 in the driveway...all the pool toys you could want and more. The spiral staircase to the 3rd floor master bedroom is not for older, heavier adults (so one of my kids took it) and all the bedrooms are open lofts, which meant not a lot of privacy if you have someone sleeping on the couches below or the 2nd floor bedroom. There is no place for a baby gate on the stairs to go to the 2nd floor, but was not a big problem. (I packed one, but there is one in the closet that we used on the back porch). there is even a booster seat & crib. I over-packed as I didn't know what to expect, but we didn't use most of it. there were 8 adults and 4 small children. We spent most evenings on the back porch. Everyone was pleased with the house, pool and close walk to the beach.

(when the kids were little, we'd stay up the road a bit and you had to think twice about walking back to the hotel from the beach because you forgot something....not here).

If we ever make another trip to Florida...I will definitely rent this place out.

Thanks Phil for a wonderful week.
