Charming Florida Luxury Waterfront living- 3 Bedrooms - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 7)
We are originally from Australia and moved to the USA in 1988 and bought this house soon after for its beautiful location and incredible views. We enjoy having our guests who truly appreciate our home and treat it as if it was their own. We get a lot of repeat guests who have become close friends...
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!
What makes this House unique
Close enough to all the attractions to go out for the day yet just far enough away from all the crowds to be able to relax in your own serene waterfront Piece of Heaven!
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Wonderful view, beautiful sunsets!
We stayed at Gulf Coast Heaven for a few days in March. We loved the location and the surrounding area. It was close to several nice beaches and the lovely town of Tarpon Springs. Dianne was a caring hostess and really wanted to make sure we had a good visit. We visited with our daughter, her husband and two grandchildren and the house was perfect for our needs. It was too cool for the pool but the kids enjoyed the hot tub. All in all a great vacation!
How nice you took the time to write a review, yes all the guests seem lo really enjoy our home :-)) and the care we take to make them feel at home.
not to mention those incredible sunsets, private island boat charter, we are
unique and ask you spread the word to your friends. Cheers! Dianne
Owner is dishonest in her dealings regarding maintenance; home needs updates and repairs
I am a rental property owner and have stayed at numerous rental homes with my family and friends without incident. We always treat the home as if it was ours and maintain it as if we owned it. This owner gave us a list of jobs to complete on our checkout which we completed fully plus swept the floors and returned everything to their original positions. Despite doing this the owner insulted my son, insulted our country of origin and accused us of being messy. She then charged us $50 for damage stating that we "made a mess on floors, untidy with dirt, grass and sand and did not use mats provided". These statements are completely untrue. The only thing more we could have done was to scrub the floors the morning we left. I am disappointed that the owner reacted in this irrational manner and now understand that no matter what condition I left the property in, it would result in us unjustly losing some of our damage deposit. It is unfortunate that the owners unscrupulous behavior took away from our vacation. While staying at the house we fielded calls form unpaid service people looking the owner regarding payment for their work on the property. The owners actions aside, the property is dated and in need of updating and maintenance. The view is beautiful and the community and neighbors are very nice. I would not recommend staying here mostly due to the owner.
I am not surprised that this client wrote such a review, when I contacted him about the state of the floors the comment he made is not fit for this review,
although he did give permission to deduct the fee for extra cleaning and did not deny the situation.
We have many wonderful reviews and are sorry we didn't have our booking company do a full check on them. Dianne
Had a great time!
Our family of five really enjoyed our stay. The views were fantastic. Plenty of room to spread out. Our host Dianne was great and the boat tour with Todd was great too. We enjoyed fantastic sunsets, dolphins feeding right in front and egrets walking along the pool edge. We really had fun.
Many thanks for your kind words about your stay.
We so enjoyed meeting you and hope you can show off that suntan
when you get home.
Would appreciate you letting your friends know of us.
May you have a Blessed year !
Great Views to relax and enjoy!
This is a very well kept property with excellent views! We did the private boat tour with her son and it was the highlight of our stay, our kids loved it! We boarded the boat right from the dock so it was very convenient! We spent allot of time in the hot tub (we stayed in December) simply enjoying the views and watching the most amazing sunsets! I would definitely recommend this property!
Jalissa and her family were so respectful of my property I give them 10 out of 10 . If you're fortunate to get a booking from them, rest assured they will take
as much care as if it were their own home !
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!
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.
The Boat Trip to the Island right from our dock was such a highlight they were in awe with the dolphins, white sandy beaches,
100yr old ligjhthouse and swimming in the aquamarine gulf.
do come back, and do it all again you are such a lovely young family.
