Maximo Moorings House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Newly refurbished pool. This St Pete Beach home is located minutes from the famous award winning white beaches of St Pete and Fort De Soto. This outstanding 2 bedroom pool home sleeps 4 very comfortably. A 35 ft crystal clear, private solar heated pool awaits you in tranquil grounds.

The garden is South facing so you enjoy the sun from first thing in the morning until early evening. Great for the winter months too. The lush garden is completely enclosed and very private, with mature tropical trees and shrubs.

There are supermarkets, restaurants, malls, drug stores and shops within minutes of the property. The Ellenton Designer Outlet Mall is only a short drive away with many famous brands at discounted prices such as Ralph Lauren, Coach, Saks Fifth Avenue and Gap to name a few.

The property features all new furniture and appliances from the 42' Samsung plasma TV, DVD player and sectional sofa in the lounge to the stunning modern style king size bed in the master bedroom. The interior is furnished to the highest standard with attention paid to every detail. Both bedrooms have LCD TV's, DVD players and cotton bed linen to ensure your stay is perfect.

The second bedroom is equipped with cherry wood twin beds, dresser and XBox 360. There is additional sleeping accommodation in the form of a modern queen sized sofa settee that is located in the lounge area, linen is again provided.

This house is the perfect getaway for couples and families who enjoy style and superior finishes combined with beautiful surroundings. In July 2010 the kitchen was completely re-modeled with cherry shaker units and granite countertops. New cooker, microwave, dishwasher and double front fridge freezer with ice machine. There is a brand new washing machine and dryer. In August 2010 we replaced the whole Air Conditioning System. All windows and sliders have been changed in December 2010. bathrooms were completely remodelled in July 2013 and the family bath remodelled April 2015.

All your needs are catered for in this beautiful holiday home.

Travel cot, car booster seats for children, pool toys, beach towels, Lego, Playmobile toys and jigsaws are all provided to keep young children occupied and happy so that parents and grown ups can enjoy the relaxed surroundings.

The lanai is an excellent area in the evening for drinks before dinner and is also great for a break from the sun during the day whilst still being able to enjoy the heat and atmosphere that Florida and this home has to offer.

About Fraser

We have been vacationing in St Pete Beach since 1991 and have rented many properties. We eventually became tired of renting run down properties in need of refurbushment and we always thought it would be great to buy something and make it how we wanted it.

We found this house and saw the potential in it, we installed a new kitchen and then spent 2 weeks furnishing it and making it how we wanted it. As you can see from the description above we have spent a lot of time and money making this a luxury property, and from our reviews so far it would seem that we have achieved our goal.

Our kids love the pool and the house, as you can see, and we are sure you will too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family stayed at the house on our first trip to St

Petersburg in July 2014 and we found it superb holiday experience. We have not stayed in the Tampa area before. What a pleasant surprise for us all.

The villa far exceeded our expectations. The villa has pleasant bedrooms,

bathrooms and a beautiful living area and kitchen. All areas are large and far exceed what you would normally expect from a two bedroom villa. It is fully equipped with everything you would wish for and finished with a high standard of furnishing. The lanai area was large and spacious and offered family alfresco dining. The pool is superb. Large, warm set amidst good sized, private landscaped gardens. Pool loungers are well cared for and all soft furnishings are spotless. The whole villa is immaculate and very clean.

Best of all is the owner, Fraser, who is easy to communicate with

and helpful. He is a superb host. The security deposit was returned very

swiftly without issue.

We would recommend the villa to other guests without hesitation. We stayed in Florida for 3 weeks staying in a further two 5 star spa hotels, one 4 star boutique hotel and a 7 bedroom villa in Kissimmee. This villa was the best, truly, you will not be disappointed.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for our second trip to your home. We had a great time this year. So close to all the beaches and restaurants. Stores close as well.The weather was beautiful everyday and house again was so great for our trip. So disappointed you have gone to a monthly rental but glad we had the experience to enjoy all things that make this a great rental. Best wishes!!

Excellent Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from staying in this rental. It was fabulous! The house was exactly as described. Pool was beautiful and house was very clean. We got caught in Tropical Storm Colin and at one point we were afraid the pool was going to overflow (it didn't) so we contacted Earl, who is local. He was very friendly and helpful. The next day Fraser also checked in on us. Excellent customer service! Everything we needed was in the house or within a short drive. We look forward to staying at this location again. Highly recommend!

We want to go back--fantastic

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I( ages 59-from MN) visited St Pete's for the first time and did not want to leave. The house was great. Everything as advertised and more. There was a contact person available if you needed something or if ??? anything went wrong(nothing went wrong, so I do not have an example. The pool was great, and private. We are trying to clear time so we can return.

Nice property terrible owner

  • 1 of 5

The property itself is very nice. It's updated, well kept, comfortable, and in a good location. The pool was great. I agree with previous reviews that the bed in the master bedroom is not the most comfortable matress. What was most disappointing and made this experience stressful is the poor communication from the owner. I could not get a hold of him to get the home address or directions. He did not respond to any emails and calling was not an option since he has an international number. I finally got a response days prior to our trip only because I called customer service to file a complaint. I completely understand if that information is not given too far in advance but again communication here would have been helpful!! Just a simple reply saying we give that out the night before or days before or whatever would have been greatly appreciated. Now I am waiting to get our "refundable" damage deposit and again no response! We rented a property before this in Hawaii and had the BEST experience so we were excited to use VRBO again. This rental has been so frustrating and stressful to deal with I honestly don't think I'll use VRBO again. I want my refund thank you!!
