Enjoy the exciting Johns Pass Village- many great restaurants including DeLosas Pizza, The Hut, Bubba Gumps and Hooters with outdoor decks where you can watch dolphins play and brilliant sunsets. Best place on the beach to watch the sunset!

New bridge has protective walkway to get to the beach- super easy access from the boardwalk.

Current Openings:

Summer dates in June, July and August. $800 for a week or book a long weekend.

*** Have a large family? Rent the upstairs and down for a discount. Great for family reunions,small Get- Togethers and charming Weddings! *****

We have 2 units available -upstairs and downstairs. You can reserve the entire property for FUN FAMILY vacations! Each unit is 2 bedroom 1 bath. Our newly renovated 2 bedroom 1 bath units are on the inter coastal waterway off the Gulf of Mexico and have a private dock.

The units are NON SMOKING!

We are Pet Friendly but you would never know it -units are clean and smell heavenly! Only dirt on the floor is sand from the beach that you brought in! Each unit is decorated 'beach chic' and are well equipped for your stay. There is a deep water slip available to dock your boat or jet ski.

New great additions to the property are digital combo door locks-eliminating the need for keys. We also have a large utility room accessed by your private digital door lock with new washer and dryer free for your use. We also have Wireless Internet connection!

There is plenty to do in our small town. We are in walking distance to many great restaurants, bars, shopping, night life, recreation in Johns Pass Village and THE BEACH. From the driveway it is a 2 minute drive or bike ride to Madeira Beach and on foot it's less than 10mins if you are a slow walker. By car or beach trolley you can easily get to St.Pete Beach, PassAGrille, Treasure Island, Clearwater Beach and Tampa to name a few.

If you have children or grandchildren they will be thrilled with fishing off your very own dock or walking to the Pirate Ship cruise. You can rent a bike, boat, jet ski, or Putt-Putt golf just a brisk walk down the road.

This property is a 2 story 'duplex- style' building. We are currently renting the ground and second floor units. The bottom has two french doors that open to the water. The upstairs has a sliding door off the master to a large balcony looking over the water. Please let us know if you are specifically interested in the top floor. Also, fishing poles can be provided if requested at no extra charge.

The property is owned by a local husband and wife so you will be able to reach us anytime.

We rented bottom part of duplex for Feb and March 2016 and when we turned on the oven, ROACHES went everywhere. Landlord refused to bring in exterminator. We left in Feb due to infestation and wanted a refund for March and they refused to give us our money back. Upstairs also has roaches, ants AND silver fish!! DO NOT RENT THIS PLACE! Inhabitable!! Many pictures and video to prove.

Owner's Response: I normally would not respond to something like this, however this is my first review and I felt it necessary to offer my side. A) I had renters in the upstairs unit during the month of February as well and when they checked out they called to tell me what a wonderful stay they had and much they enjoyed their vacation. B) This family that wrote this review stayed last year and returned this year and had already been staying for 3 weeks and 3 days before I ever heard a complaint. C) When I heard of complaint I went to exterminate unit however they refused extermination stating it was poison. At this point I believe they found a different location that satisfied their needs better. D) After being in vacation rentals for the past few years this is the first negative review we have received. I know there are all types of people in the world and one cannot make everyone happy.
