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.
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.
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.
We had an amazing time at the house. We used it to get ready for our wedding and then it was our honeymoon. We can not wait to use the house in the future! Thanks for everything and for allowing us to relax. We really enjoyed the guided boat tour also. The Coleys, St Petersburg, FL.
We stayed here week of 28/Jan with 7 family members coming from New Jersey, Chicago and Toronto. This house has plenty of space for everyone and lots of things to do. We were grateful that Brian was generous enough to leave kayaks (3) , bicycles (5), fishing rods , tackle box, football, beach chairs and umbrella, even a cooler in the garage for use - everything and anything you can think of. We visited the Honeymoon Island twice during our stay (admission pass included) and bought cold cut sandwiches from the nearby Publix and packed it in the cooler. We spent some time fishing off the dock and were lucky enough to see dolphins swimming by. There's even a banana tree in the backyard by the thatch umbrella. We enjoyed the peaceful and tranquil mornings and beautiful sunset from the deck.
The beds and furnitures were very comfortable. House was well kept and clean. Everyone wanted to shower in the very spacious master bath. We would definitely come back again.
Thank you very much Brian for opening up your beautiful home to us. We all have fond memories of our family reunion. It was a great pleasure to have met you during our stay.
I highly recommend dealing with Brian. He is very efficient, returned my phone calls even on weekends and his response time is very quick.
We had 2 families (4 adults and 6 children) at this house and it was perfect! We loved all the extras like the kayaks, bikes, fishing poles, and fun things for the pool. The pool was perfect for the kids, and we enjoyed being able to grill and hang around the house. I would definitely book again!
Fabulous place to unwind and enjoy great family time. The owners of this house pay attention to details to make your stay more enjoyable. Several bikes that vary in size and variety with surrounding area with great trails very near the home. Kayaks were a great bonus, fishing dock was great also. Palm Harbor is small town hidden with fabulous restaurants, brewery's and many eccentric little shops.
The pass to the state honeymooners beach is gorgeous. Make sure you visit a near by Jupiter donut company, homemade doughnuts,apple fritters, and much more made daily. Go early when the baskets are empty they are done for the day. Fabulous House and hope to return soon.
This house was perfect for our wedding reception and honeymoon week. We were looking for something on the water, with a pool, enough room for 50 or so guests and a bathroom on the bottom floor for family that's was unable to climb stairs. And this place had it all! We were able to kayak out to the gulf and spend the day in the sun watching the wildlife all around. This is truly a beautiful location with plenty of fun to be had!
This house was perfect for an active family like mine. We enjoyed the swimming, biking on the Pinellas Trail, kayaking, fishing from the dock, going to Honeymoon Island and relaxing on the balcony. We enjoyed having all of the sand toys for the pool and beach as well as chairs for the beach. It had lots of sleeping areas that helped to separate the youngest (6mo) member from the oldest (me at 71). The child guard pool fence helped to assure us that the 3 young children were safe when they were outside. The large dining room was great for our Thanksgiving dinner because it seated 12 people.I definitely would recommend this house for a large family gathering like we had in Palm Harbor.
I spent summer vacations with my family in this house and we had a great time. Very comfortable, well equiped and well deserved recipient of the phrase southern hospitality. Excellent distribution of space, plenty of room and cozy enviroment.
