|Minimum Stay||3 - 5 nights|
Our most requested apartment for the romantic getaway. 9 tall windows overlook the beach and the Gulf of Mexico from the second floor of the big house. Lie in bed in the morning and watch the sand pipers and the beach combers. Dine in the evening at the table for two and enjoy the most beautiful red sunsets into the ocean. Our guest book is full of rave reviews. This is the best of Old Florida.
We want your stay to be stress free so we have complimentary wifi and on site parking for you.
See ya on the BEACH !
The owners Curtis and his wife Kathy: My grandparent's, Ernest and Leona Delano, bought the place in 1965 and went about converting it into beachfront vacation rentals. I used to come down to Florida and visit them. My father, an air force fighter pilot, went off to Vietnam so I lived here while he was away. I met my wife Kathy at college in Gainesville. We moved to Denver, raise 2 boys and always came back every year to relax in this very special place. In 1996 my grandparents retired and we decided the Sun n Fun was too nice to part with so we bought it to keep it in the family for the next generation to enjoy.
Bruce Carter purchased this cottage in 1996
As you can see from the photo, good memories are made here. Both our boys are now married and when we can we fly down from Denver and stay a week or two. My oldest son Aaron proposed to his wife on the beach and of course it decided to rain so they came in soaked to the bone. We can go on and on about the fun we have. Always a treat.
Location, location , location. My grandparent's chose well. This part of the island is so narrow you can throw a stone from the Gulf and hit the Bay. We get the best of both world's. The sun rises on the boats cruising up and down the channel. And in the evening we get the deepest red sunsets into the Gulf that folks write home about.
Great place to stay if you love the beach. Nothing fancy, but well kept and very comfortable. Did I mention it was close to the beach. You can sit on the porch sipping mojitos while watching the kids play in the surf. It's that close. We'll be staying there next year.
The property was great, stayed in unit 4 which overlooks the Gulf and beach front. Beautiful sunset views, great location and is close to dining and shopping. I highly recommend this for your next stay in the area.
What I liked the most was the cozy feeling. I felt like it was a home away from home. It was very nice that you provided the kayaks and ocean toys and umbrellas. The apartment was quiet and the beach felt private. We had a wonderful time and we are looking forward to returning soon. The staff was helpful and friendly also.
What a charming, clean wonderful bungalow. We enjoyed our Girls Weekend away very much. We especially loved the kayaks! What fun paddling around the ocean - we saw manatees! One (very small) request...there was only one sad ice cube tray in the freezer. We created an ice bowl and filled and refilled and filled and refilled so we had enough ice, but a few nice trays would have been helpful. Did not spoil our time by any means, but could help make the experience perfect! Thanks for a wonderful spot! We would definitely come back!
This was my wife's and mine 3rd time visiting The Sun n Fun. We loves it so much the 1st time we did it again and after the second decided it will be our anniversary destination Indefinitely. Bruce and his staff are always so personable and always accommodating.
We love the town and surrounding areas And the beach front is amazing and we truly believe unbeatable. This is coming from a Florida couple that has seen most of the beaches throughout the state.
We highly recommend this property to all and look forward to celebrating many more anniversaries at The Sun n Fun.
What a great location being right on the beautiful beach. Beautiful sunsets sitting under the cabana. Enjoyed the long walks up and down the beach. We stayed in unit 4 with a great ocean view and could here the surf every night. It was great to get away and just unwind there. Watched pelicans dive into the ocean for lunch, then saw flamingos, egrets and herrons across the street in the intercoastal . Not our first time at Sun & Fun, have also seen manatees in the intercoastal on other stays. Will be back in the future.
You will be vacationing on the closest beach to Tampa airport while also secluded from the vacation crowds. We are located in 'The Narrows', so named by the local settlers of the 1920's because the barrier island is so skinny here that there is only room for a single row of homes. The emerald green waters of the Gulf are out your front door and and yachts cruising the channel are out your back door. Water surrounds you like no where else with fantastic tropical views and a true island feeling. Our many repeat guests tell us that this is the most coveted spot on the 12 miles of world class beaches between Clearwater and St Petersburg.
