Beautiful property. Completely functional and comfortable. Great for couples or families!

  • 4 of 5

I loved this place. Everything worked smoothly.

A couple very minor things:

The inside is dark. The kitchen and living room are not terribly well-lit after the sun goes down. And I think that may have more to do with the paint color than anything else.

The auto-lock feature on the front door of the waterfront unit DOES NOT work. Do not assume the door is locked when you use it. Use the keys.

The stove is tricky. There is something about the plumbing or the draft of air coming from the A/C vent in the corner that causes the burners to light and heat unevenly. I got around this by always using the front right burner. For everything as it had the best contact.

Other than those very minor things, I absolutely loved this spot. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family, especially those with smaller boats, as it has an excellent dock for such a purpose.

While the Uber rates are quite decent and FreeBeachRide is only a text away and everyone is very friendly and accommodating, I would recommend having a car while there even if only going for a short stay. St. Pete is a spontaneous town, and having a car in which you can be spontaneous is pretty important!

Peaceful, comfortable and convenient rental

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week at this property in mid May 2016 along with my husband, daughter and 3 year old grandson. The property was clean and well maintained. The weather was gorgeous the entire week from the 11th through the 17th. We had a wonderful week! Checking in was smooth and Ginny was accommodating to our arrival schedule. The view of the bay is fabulous and the property location was close to all we needed. We saw dolphins in the bay most evenings. We enjoyed watching the boats in the bay and the sea creatures off the dock: lots of crabs, shrimp, tiny little bloat fish and pipe fish to name a few. I enjoyed the quiet, peaceful location for relaxing after returning from our adventures out. We really never heard any neighbors the entire week. We relaxed in the hot tub nightly enjoying the view. The beds and seating were comfortable. The kitchen is very well stocked with any items you might need. We experienced only a couple of minor issues that were attended to and taken care of immediately by Ginny and Crabby. Those being the WiFi connection and TV connection. I loved having a washer and dryer on site. Our favorite restaurant was Caddy's on the beach due to the location and atmosphere. The food and drinks were great too. We also dined at Crabby Bills, Bubba Gumps (a tradition for us), RumFish Grille, The Melting Pot, Islamorada Fish Company (at Tampa Bass Pro Shops) and breakfast at Beverly's La Croisette. Our adventures included Johns Pass Village & Boardwalk, Shell Key Island, Treasure Island public beach, Fort De Soto Park, Clearwater Aquarium, and Dolphin Racer. I would recommend this rental.

Loved this dog-friendly getaway home

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time over Memorial Day Weekend with our two dogs. The home is perfectly located near a Winn Dixie (groceries), several delicious restaurants, the beach, etc. It's well decorated, with soft sheets (most rentals have sandpaper sheets, but this place was comfy!) and has a fully equipped kitchen for cooking (if you desire). Washer Dryer in the unit was handy as well, and on cool nights the fire pit table was perfect! There was even a dog beach just south of Caddy's where our hounds had a blast running along the waves. Crabby and Ginny were wonderful and checked in on us nearly every morning to see if we had questions or needed assistance with anything. There was plenty of room and privacy in this unit. The hot tub is within the Lanai now, so it wasn't out in the hot sun. We enjoyed it! There were plenty of interesting birds and fish out by the dock, we got some great photographs. Having the dog park right next door was really convenient also! We dined at Berns Steakhouse in Tampa (celebrating a birthday), Crabby Bills (it's an annual tradition), Nina's Cafe on the Beach, Nikko Mussolini's Dog Bar and Boutique, Nori Thai, Sea Hags, Conch Republic Grill, ordered Pho & Thai food from Asian House Restaurant delivery, and taco pizza from Hungry Howies, SO many delicious options. We meant to go to Jackie's for Sunday brunch but didn't quite make it there.

Suggestions: We never could really get the WIFI to work, I got on once for maybe 5 minutes, then it lost signal again. We gave up on the WIFI after day 2 of repeated trying. Repair may be needed for master bdrm ceiling fan (wobbled a lot and hangs low, so we didn't use it), and the master bath ceiling fan didn't work at all, might just be an electrical issue. The Screen porch/Lanai area could probably use a ceiling fan or even a portable box fan to help circulate the air on hot days. The first two days there was a nice cross breeze through the porch, but the latter few days were pretty stifling until the sun went down. The front door has an automatic lock, which *does work* but you have to lean on the door a bit (not push in too far though), to get the deadbolt to line up with the hole for both locking and unlocking it. We ended up using the spare key more often than using the auto-lock feature. However, despite these minor hiccups we had a very lovely stay and look forward to renting this unit again next time we are vacationing in the area.

Fabulous view!!

  • 4 of 5

The view makes this unit. Having a soak in the hot tub on the bay after a day at the golf course was most enjoyable. There are plenty of linens and kitchen utensils available. Ginnie and "Crabby" were so attentive to any of our needs for the 3 months. They made us feel very safe and secure. Location of the unit is great for walking to all amenities. The local community center has great exercise classes only a block walk away. This is a triplex so expect noise from the other tenants and be prepared to share the downstairs deck and patio. Noise from the upstairs unit moving the deck furniture and walking can be very loud at times particularly in the kitchen/living room. This was not a problem with the first tenants but the next two it was disruptive at times. It is quite ok to have guests while there but it would be a good idea to limit the number of people at one time to avoid disruption to the other tenants. One unit had as many as 6 guests including toddlers at one time. As with all rental transactions, keep good records of payment. Questions come up and you want to be ready with any proof of payment.

Again, the view, the staff and location make this unit.
