Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful place. The owners have left nothing to chance for their guests to need or want including kitchen & laundry supplies as well as bathroom necessities. We barbequed outside and cooked in the beautiful kitchen. There were an incredible amount of sitting options inside the house for eating or lounging. The home is beautifully decorated and maintained; the landscaping is gorgeous. The house was spacious for all of us, including 5 teenage/grown children. We shared the house with another family, and no one felt crowded. Kids loved fishing off the dock; there were even fishing poles there for them to use. The owner was a great resource; his offsite fishing recommendation was the highlight of the trip for most of us. Neighborhood is peaceful and quiet.

Thanksgiving 2014

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at this home. I cooked a huge traditional thanksgiving spread and I had every pot, pan, serving bowl and utensil just like at home. It is far more beautiful than the pictures. Fishing was awesome. Only caution was that the pool is not heated. It was pretty cold. Very quiet and peaceful and just a short car ride to several beaches.

Beautifully designed home and waterfront backyard!!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures are great but it looks even better when you are there. Beautiful garden and open living space, very roomy. Dolphins were giving us a show in the canal many times. We fished from the dock. We are 3 families with toddlers and teenagers. Everyone enjoyed the big swimming pool. Everything is new and clean. There was enough towels, sheets, places to sleep and sit, and household items. Close to beaches, stores, restaurants, and not far from Orlando. Perfect location. It was our 6th time in that area and the best one. We fell in love with this place!!

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely wonderful. It is exactly as pictured. We had a fantastic stay and were lucky to see dolphins in the canal, fished from the dock and enjoyed the pool. Close to both shopping and beaches and it is easy to have a drive to Orlando. Make time to visit the Dali museum while staying in St. Petersborg.

Great Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 4 weeks in this lovely vacation home, our family of 6 had a much needed quiet Christmas break. We have spent many vacations in St Petes and this was the best waterfront home we have rented, the open plan living made it perfect for all our family to visit on Christmas Day and both friends and family the day after. Bedrooms were great and master suite is HUGE with doors to the pool and an amazing bathroom. We saw dolphins in the canal and fished from the dock and although it was December into January all 3 kids made full use of the pool. The beaches are so close that Bruce should market the property under St Petes Beach, both Fort de Soto and Pass a Grille were as beautiful and as quiet as ever. So many good restaurants close by and shopping that is always going to test your luggage allowance! We plan to be back as soon as possible and hope that Bruce will have the availability for us...

Immaculate & Inviting

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfectly situated close to stores and restaurants for every day use, only minutes from shopping malls and beaches. The pictures are nothing compared to the actual home. It is very clean and beautifully decorated with plenty of household items to make it feel like a home away from home. The morning sunrises and evening sunsets were wonderful to watch from the patio and pool area. The owner was helpful whenever we had questions and left a notebook with some great information and recommendations for us while we were there.

I would definitely recommend this property to family & friends. It was perfect for our family of 5.

The pool was nice but it was still to cold to enjoy it regularly.
