Extraordinary Vacation Awaits

Start your vacation the moment you arrive with a welcome bottle of champagne and the assortment of chocolates.  The home is located minutes from the '#1 Voted' white sandy beaches in the USA, Pass-a-Grille Beach and Fort Desoto Beach, but nestled on a quiet high-end residential cul-de-sac.  Gather your family for a sea-side breakfast at a big outdoor table. Spend your days swimming in your own heated pool overlooking the beautiful gulf waters, lounging by the pool looking out into the water with a glass of wine, relaxing in the hammock and watching playful dolphins and manatees cruise by or watching sunsets during dinner.  

Catch your own dinner right off the dock.  We have caught a variety of fish from our dock, including big grouper, flounder, snapper, and many more.  Nothing beats grilling your fresh catch on the pool deck in the pleasant ocean breeze.  Fire up that Weber Grill. It is ready for you with a tank of gas for that special occasion.  

Have a boat?  Take it with you.  This home is located right on the protected gulf waters.  Bear left and you're minutes away from the open gulf or bear right and you're heading towards the best inshore fishing grounds in Florida.  Two marinas are within walking distance and a public boat ramp is 5 minutes away. No boat, no problem.  You can rent a boat or a jet ski at the marina just around the corner. 

We have an amazing Saint Petersburg Downtown.  Along a sparkling waterfront, 
discover world-class art and culture, The Salvador Dali Museum, Live Performance Arts Theater, major league sports, great shopping and dining and more than 1000 special events a year.  Explore the downtown by renting a fun family bike or take a leisurely stroll on the tree-lined streets. 

Feeling active?  We have the best amusement parks, all within easy reach.  In only half an hour you can be riding one of the newest and fastest roller-coasters at Busch Gardens Park or taking a day trip to the Mickey Country at Disney World Parks and Resorts which is just 90 minutes away.

We help you stay connected with high-speed internet access throughout the property. 

Take a little time for yourself and tune in to one of the 200 premium channels on a large 75" Smart-HDTV with hi-fi home theater system, while your kids conquer new territory in the next room on the newest Xbox One S connected to a 55" Smart-HDTV. We’ve got Netflix on both TV’s as well.

The days we spend at this home are one of the most relaxing and energizing moments in our lives.  I am sure and hope that you will enjoy your time here as much as we do! 

 
We promise to refund your security deposit promptly.

The house is designed expertly. All rooms lead to the back patio, pool, yard and water

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time as the weather was wonderful in early March. The pool are patio are so inviting. Unlike most other house, while in the pool, you have infinity pool-like views of the canal and bay of Tampa. Saw lots of nature and wildlife from dolphin, osprey, heron, loons and many pelicans. The rooms are large and the furnishings are tasteful and special with lots of leather and glass, plus very nice artwork. Will be staying again for certain.

Stunning 10 day vacation

  • 4 of 5

We spent 10 days and rarely left the property. It is furnished for complete relaxation and privacy. The floor plan is wide open, with multiple floor to ceiling sliding glass doors providing beautiful views of the canal directly in front of the home and pool. The pool is heated and having it to ourselves was so relaxing we didn't feel like going anywhere. It also has a large shaded patio and plenty of area to sit in the sun. We biked directly from the home out to the beautiful, wide open Ft DeSoto park. It's a gorgeous 12 mile ride with wide and safe bike paths. The location of the property is outside the congested beach areas and very quiet. Boats passing on canal are subject to low wake restrictions so idle by quietly. Boat and jet ski rental is within walking distance. We saw dolphins off the pier daily. It is a five star vacation if you want peace and relaxation. The missing star is due to some minor maintenance issues that we shared with the owner privately, as it does not impair the value of the vacation. The owner, Alex, always responded immediately to any inquiry. We don't have kids, and there were no kids around, which made it so appealing as a quiet retreat. It is far enough away from the noise, congestion and crowds of the beach areas to be peaceful but close enough to go there if desired. Can't speak to whether it's kid friendly as it seems to be more of an adult community, even for vacationers.

Beautiful updated mid century home. Great layout. Great outdoor area with pool and dock.

  • 4 of 5

Our group stayed 5 nights for 2 Birthday celebrations. The house has a great lay out, with 3 big bathrooms. All of the bedding was very comfortable including the fold out and the bunk beds. We had great weather so we took advantage of huge patio sliding doors, which open like pocket doors from 3 sides to the lanai and pool area. We were about 20 minutes to downtown St Petersburg. Gray restaurants and shopping, Dali museum. There is a small liquor store and 7-11 near the entrance to the neighborhood, which you can walk or ride one of the 3 bicycles which were provided. What keeps this from being 5 star is very minor and an easy fix. The BBQ grill provided was not up to par. The owner Alex did come and replace with a brand new one half way into our stay. The kitchen is not fully stocked with flatware, coffee cups, etc

Overall. A great place and we all would stay here again

Owner's Response: Dear Christian, Thank you for taking the time to post a very thoughtful review. We greatly appreciate all feedback, especially, in areas where we can improve. Following your suggestions, we have re-stocked the kitchen with additional new flatware, cups, and other items that we thought our guests would enjoy. We are glad that your group had a great time. We hope to welcome you back soon. Sincerely, Alex

Incredible stay in St. Pete Beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything this property had to offer. The view was beautiful and the unique set up of the house allowed for all of our family members to have private spaces to enjoy. We would highly recommend this property.

This Place is Awesome

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing home, and Alex (homeowner) is extremely responsive and hospitable. We had a couple questions during our stay, and he answered his phone on the first ring every time we called him. There are so many amenities at this home, so it's a blast to just hang out on the porch, on the dock, in the private saltwater pool, or in one of the 2 giant living rooms. If you do decide to leave, it's 10-15 minutes to St Pete Beach nightlife, 10 minutes to the beaches, 30 minutes to Tampa. Highly recommend.
