About Brian McGonagill

We are Brian and Cadie McGonagill, founders of FloridaSunVacationRentals.com home of the Best Price Guarantee and, together, with our wonderful daughters Alexandra and Ashley make up Florida Sun Vacation Rentals. We are a close knit family who love this area and simply enjoy the vacation rental business. Our mission statement is to “provide a safe, comfortable and enjoyable experience in our exquisite vacation rental properties while promoting the sights and businesses of the greater Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Dunedin, Palm Harbor, Tarpon Springs area.” We pride ourselves in setting the stage for families and individuals to have a memorable, safe vacation experience.

Brian McGonagill purchased this house in 2010

Why Brian McGonagill chose Palm Harbor

We love this area for the sunshine, warm weather and close proximity to the water and beaches. The cultural and recreational opportunities are endless with something for everyone nearby. Big name sports and entertainment venues abound. Ten Major league Baseball teams hold spring training camps within minutes of the home. World class golf and tennis are available year around. Amazing deep-sea fishing, boating, shell hunting are easily accessible. Luxury cruise boats leave from nearby Tampa. Also, there are plenty of private airports and fantastic recreational flying destinations. There are miles of scenic bike/jogging trails at hand. Wonderful restaurants, theaters, grocery stores and shopping are just down the street.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy that, while we are close to all the fun and recreational activities, our vacation home is in a very nice, quiet, private neighborhood that lets us feel the tranquility and relaxation of truly being 'at home.' It's so relaxing to sit on the lanai, or be taking a swim in the pool, while watching a tropical sunset...with no crowds or hustle. Our home has a large backyard that is ideal for badminton, croquet or horseshoes.

The home is furnished with brand new, top of the line mattresses and linens. All our properties have been decorated with your comfort in mind and are continually receiving updates and extra amenities. Colorful art by Warhol, Lichtenstein, Van Gogh and LeWitt lend fun and atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Had a wonderful time at your lovely home. It seemed there was nothing you forgot to make our stay comfortable. Our little ones loved the library of movies and managed to swim in the pool a lot. We were on the go while here and attended New Years eve and day events in St. Petersburg. We also went to the aquarium in Tampa. For plane enthusiasts, don't miss the Fantasy of Flight in Polk City. We are now headed back to Missouri, but wish we could stay here in Florida. Thanks for everything!

Perfect for

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 9 enjoyed a beautiful stay at this Palm Harbor property. We were in search of a location near Clearwater and other Gulf Coast cities and this rental was perfect. The owners maintain this spacious home beautifully and offer many extras. Beach towels, pool toys, bikes and many other things made our stay resemble home and offered a feeling of ease and comfort. The owners also responded to any requests immediately. We were extremely pleased with our stay.

The location was near Honeymoon Island and passes to the State Park are provided by the owners. We took advantage of visiting numerous times. It is a beautiful beach that even offers a boat ride to a secluded island. We also enjoyed evening sunsets at this beach because with the passes it was free and parking was a breeze.

We also spent some time at Tarpon Springs and Clearwater because neither location was very far from the rental. The rental is tucked in a quiet neighborhood that allows for an evening bike ride and even is visited by the ice cream man. ;) I would highly recommend this rental to anyone seeking a place to stay in Palm Harbor.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect vacation home for 8 adults and three children. The house was beautiful and completely equipped. We were only 10 minutes from honeymoon beach, 20 minutes from Clearwater beach, and 30 minutes from treasure island. The house sits on a quiet cul-de-sac in a very nice area. The kids enjoyed the pool everyday and we rode bikes all over the neighborhood. We loved it so much!

Upstate NY Family

  • 5 of 5

Four adults and 2 kids (6 years and 2.5 years) spent a wonderful week in this wonderful house. The house had everything we needed for food preparation, beach going and, best of all, pool time. The washer and dryer were especially helpful with small children. Kids and adults used the perfectly heated pool multiple times a day, morning to night. The layout of the house was ideal for 2 families. In our case, grandparents in the master suite and son and daughter-in-law with grandchildren in the 3 bedroom suite.

The neighborhood is quite and ideal for walking and bike riding. It's also close to shopping and tourist attractions. We especially enjoyed Legoland, Tarpon Springs with the Aquarium, Rusty Bellies restaurant and the Manatees. We also enjoyed exploring downtown Dunedin.

The rental experience was very comfortable. Brian was available by text and responded immediately when we had questions. We would highly recommend this property.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with my parents, my brother and his family (6 adults and 3 kids). There was plenty of room for all of us. We also had plenty of room for other family to come for dinner a few nights as we were all in town for a family wedding. The pool was amazing and enjoyed by the adults and the kids. The house was equipped with everything we needed. We love the beaches that were nearby and it also was only a 20 minute drive or so to Clearwater Beach which is certainly our favorite beach in Tampa Bay!

Ideal VacationHime

  • 5 of 5

This home was home away from home with the added Florida touches. The layout of the house was perfect for family interaction, cooking together indoors and out. The added touches for the children were perfect from pool toys to beach towels. The washer and dryer were an added luxury we really put to use. The location was centrally located and easy access to other activities, malls, shopping eating! Would definitely recommend!

It was ok....but not great!

  • 2 of 5

Even for June the Pool was cold. I understand that he was out of town and couldn't get over to the house to see what the problem was. We had to go purchase a propane tank since the one on the grill was empty and no spare. He never offered to reimburse us for that...I think that should of been included. The house doesn't have 3 bathrooms...It has 2 and half. With 6 adults and 4 children this was some times difficult to manage. The pool situation was the main problem....And maybe he has fixed that but I wouldn't rent this house again.

Owner's Response: We deeply regret that our home did not meet your expectations. We have been renting this home to vacation travelers and families for many years. We try to be very attentive and accommodating to our guests and apologize that we were not able to satisfy your needs. We provide a spare propane tank in the garage for guests in the event the propane tank runs out. I regret that you did not find it. We have the pool set at 86 degrees year round for our guests comfort. However, sometimes heavy rains during the summer can cool it off a few degrees, but in June everything in Florida is plenty hot. Oddly enough the guest right after you commented in their review how wonderful the pool was. We are usually available to adjust it if a traveler contacts us. We have updated our site to clarify that only two bathrooms have showers and the other one is a half bathroom. We have been entertaining families for years and they consistently comment that the space is perfect and accommodating for two families. Nevertheless we apologize that our home did not provide all the comforts you were expecting. A large part of our business is returning visitors who really appreciate the tremendous value our home offers compared to the traditional hotel or condo. We hope you will give us another opportunity to make your vacation a memorable experience.
