Loved every second

  • 5 of 5

Wouldn't it be wonderful if you had old friends who owned a house in St.Petersburg, and their house offered a dazzling view of sunrise over Tampa Bay, and the interior was some near-perfect combination of immaculate, classy and comfortable, with a terrific kitchen and bathrooms? And the house was in an interesting, eclectic, quiet neighborhood with tropical flora and palm trees and banana trees and incredible banyan trees that make you wish you were young enough to climb? And your friends were willing to let you use the house whenever you wanted, and they thoughtfully provide a veritable guidebook with tips on restaurants and museums and beaches to help ensure that every day of your vacation went well?

Yeah, that's this house.

The home is clean and cool, but not fussy -- it was just as the pictures here suggest. The view of the bay from the front windows is striking first thing in the morning, pleasant all day long. The kitchen is a pleasure to use, but the variety of restaurants within 5 minutes of the house means you never have to cook if you don't want to. And best of all, the owners, though you've never met them, treat you as if you are old friends, and that an enjoyable time in their home is as important to them as it is to you.

We spent parts of most days at beaches, running and walking, collecting and gazing. All of the traditional Florida tourist options are there if you want them, but on our getaway, relaxation was the key component, and this place worked perfectly.

Honestly, other than not wanting to be in a hotel, my wife and I weren't all that sure what we were looking for when we rented this house. Turns out this house was exactly what we wanted. We're glad we found it.

Awesome Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at the villa! It was a perfect accommodation with all the amenities. A lovely quiet street with great views from every window. The property was clean as a whistle and everything was well maintained. There was a golf course that was a fifteen minute drive away.

Holly provided top notch customer service every step of the way. We were impressed! Thanks to Martha, as well!

We would highly recommend this property.

We will be back!

Great HollYdays ;o)

  • 5 of 5

We had a really great time in this beautiful villa.

Even though the weather was not on our side we enjoyed our time thanks to the wonderfull view from the living room and the affectionate interior decoration.

In the run-up to our stay we received all necessary information and the entire conversation was very friendly.

The villa is perfectly equiped - we did not miss anything.

We will try to come back again and hopefully will have a chance to meet you at that time ...

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, I would like to comment on the owners of the house, they are wonderful! They took the time to help us in any way they could and more. That is one important basic in renting from someone! They made me and my family very comfortable renting from them. We loved the location of the house, as it is in a historic type neighborhood, with really cool brick roads. The house itself, is very classy, with a kitchen you dream of. All the decorations, and layout of the house is great, we all loved staying at the house. The beds were very comfortable and I thought I was at home here. The front and backyards are nice and big, with plenty of room. Our overall stay was fabulous at this house and we will come back for our next vacation time in Florida. There were plenty of dry goods, ie: paper towels, beach towels, laundry detergent, cleaning agents in the home as well. Holly and Jason are great! Thank you!

Perfect, Peaceful, Practical

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house last Sept 2008. The house has been recently remodeled. Everything looks new and in great condition. Four adults stayed there comfortably - clean, plenty of room, a big living area and a great kitchen fully stocked with all the necessities. We cooked almost every night. Garaged parking and a washer and dryer were also very important to us.

The location is very convenient to all the best public beaches. St. Pete beach was our primary beach as it is about 10 minutes away. We explored Clearwater beach to the north and Venice beach to the south. Both nice daytrips.

Loved this place...quiet, comfortable and very relaxing. Wake up early to see the sun rise over the bay...bring your camera! We will be back in 2009.
