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.

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.

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.

Awesome property, we enjoyed our stay but it was HOT!

  • 4 of 5

As stated above this is an awesome property and is completely as advertised and pictured. The pool and privacy that this house has to offer is well worth the money! The location is great to many different amenities and the beach. The owner was very easy to communicate with and all questions were answered promptly. My one and only complaint, the only thing keeping me from giving this property 5 stars, has to be the thermostat. We rented this property in early September when the temperature's in FL are still easily in the mid to upper 90's and they have the thermostat locked out at 75 degrees. It will let you turn it down to 73 for a very brief amount of time but the thermostat is on a timer and automatically changes back to 75. I'm more then understanding where the owner is coming from as far as the electrical bill, extra wear on his AC, etc. but a 75 degree inside temperature is at times unbearable for sleeping etc. (to most, me included 75 isn't that bad, but the thing that makes this bad is all of the AC vents are in the ceiling, so yes it does indeed blow cool air but it all stays at the ceiling level) if this would change and you could turn the AC down to a comfortable temperature I would be more then happy to rent this house again in the future. Other then that we were completely satisfied and would defiantly recommend this property to others!

Owner's Response: Hi Cory, I am glad you enjoyed the property and pool, With regard to the A/C if you had contacted the Agent (Earl) he could have let me known. I have the ability to over rule the system remotely. I live in Scotland so don't know what the temperatures are like on a daily basis. The system only normally returns to 75 degrees during the night from 10pm until 6am and then you can then turn it down again. I hope this helps future renters Thank you

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.
