Dianne purchased this house in 93

Why Dianne chose Baileys Bluff Estates

This is such a unique property in a very exclusive and quiet neighborhood with lots of old Florida waterfront charm.

Go out and enjoy all the local attractions or just relax by the pool and enjoy your own Piece of Heaven!

This was the most fantastic, relaxing, peaceful, calm and rejuvinating holiday we have had. The location, the views, the wildlife and the sunsets absolutely blew our minds. The house is home from home with everything you could possibly need from a BBQ to pancake gridle, from a pier to fish from to the most gorgeous pool and deck area. The inside has a huge TV and 2 loungers made of velour - an absolute dream for night time watching the movies. There is a great video and book collection as well as laundry facilities. The location is about 2 hours drive from Orlando which is mainly on motorway - really easy to find and Dianne could not have been more helpful to us. In the surrounding vicinity there is a bird nature reserve, a beautiful little fishing town called Tarpon Springs (lovely fish restaurants) as well as only being about 20 minutes from Tampa and Clearwater. We did very little when we were there other than marvel at the views, the sunsets and the wildlife in our own 'back yard'. We will definately be back sometime next year. It is one of those places that will be imprinted on my mind for the rest of my life. Magical...............

The view from the deck is serene and beautiful, we spent every night just watching the calm of the ocean, and the mornings spotting stingrays and crabs. It's within a nice driving distance of Seaworld as we spent one day there. It was my mom's first time seeing the ocean. It was also a 60th birthday present for my dad and we also celebrated my daughter's first birthday that week as well- we made a lot of wonderful memories.

Kids Favorite place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice clean home with huge Pool! Very peaceful to sit on the dock or by the pool of an evening and watch the sunset. Good place for family time with a big heated pool and ocean view all to yourself. We saw all kinds of marine life from dolphins,stingray, shark and small crabs. Close to Busch Gardens, Restaurants, Grocery store,and shopping. We were only away from the place 1 day to go to Busch Gardens.

What can be said that hasn't already been said! it's even better than the advertisement, we had such a wonderful time, lap pool is just awesome, dock and fishing lots of fun, boat trip to island a must!

the location's un interrupted views of the Gulf of Mexico, no neighbours, lots of exotic birds, we saw dolphins swim by the dock,

total privacy. Close to grocery etc. The home is exceptional, we really felt special in

the surroundings, we will be back of course, by the way, if your considering a visit don't delay it's worth every cent!

My husband and I usually stay in hotels when we go on vacation but always find we are even more worn out from our week of relaxing than we were before we left. It never fails that we get a room next to people who are partying all night or have long waits for meals and other disappointing moments that take the fun out of the trip. We took a chance on doing a private vacation rental and it turned out to be the best choice we could have possibly made.

This home was so perfect for relaxing. The view of the Gulf and the ocean sounds were mesmerizing. We loved watching all of the water foul as well. The Home is well equipped with everything you could want or need. The location was great also. It was close to shopping, local beaches, great restaurants, the Tarpon sponge docks and easy access to Tampa which has much to offer such as Theme Parks, nightclubs and museums.

We would like to add that we found the property owners to be lovely people who were very accommodating. They made sure that we had the best experience possible and because of them we plan on coming back again soon.
