Overview

Venetian Isles House Rental Photos and Description

'Mermaid's Cove' is a 4BR/2BA vacation rental with a private pool, dock and a large screened lanai - porch in an upscale area of St. Petersburg on The Tampa Bay. Pet & child friendly

Enjoy the Florida sun with the whole family in this beautiful four bedroom, two bath, pet friendly, waterfront home in one of St Pete's most prestigious neighborhoods in the desirable (North of Central Avenue) Northeast section of St Petersburg. Family room, kitchen, dining, and lanai all face the water. Full formal living room in the front of the home ensures plenty of room for everyone.

Relax by the pool, and let the kids run free in the private, fully fenced yard with optional (removable and childproof) pool safety gate to ease your mind. Or, tie up your boat to your private dock and the Tampa Bay is at your doorstep. No boat to tie up, no worries, Florida Yacht Charters will pick you up at the dock (see web site below). Try your hand at fishing, kayaking, jet skiing, or stand up paddle boarding. There's so much to do, you won't be bored.

Enjoy the renowned beaches of St Pete, Clearwater and more, just a short ride from home and, after a day at the beach, leave the hustle and bustle of the crowded, tourist, beach area, and return home to the peace and quiet of this friendly, family neighborhood.

Five minutes from home, the expansive, downtown waterfront of St Pete offers waterfront dining, shopping, music, museums, and outdoor festivities including concerts, street fairs, movies and the famed 'pier.' Take a walk along the Tampa Bay or hop on a dinner or sightseeing cruise.

Take advantage of fishing, golfing, water sports and, Tropicana Field (home of the Tampa Bay Rays). Parks and playgrounds abound.

Should you decide to pull out all the stops, I can arrange for a privately chartered tour of the Tampa Bay aboard your very own 35' twin engine, twin cabin, Chaparral. This vessel comes fully equipped with a head, galley, and deck with refrigerator, sink and seating for ten. Pictures available. Captain Jeff can pick you up from the dock in the backyard! Call me for rates and availability.

Expand your reach to the Tampa area, just 30 minutes away, and enjoy Busch Gardens Theme Park,

-(

and renowned restaurants including Bern's Steakhouse,

-( and much more.

Don't forget, Disney World and Sea World beckon just 89 miles away and a short hour and twenty minute drive.

About Kim Manghisi

I've been coming down to St Petersburg for many years and look forward to living here full time once the kids finish school. There are always so many things to do and the area is so beautiful. I know you'll love it as much as I do.

Kim Manghisi purchased this house in 2009

Why Kim Manghisi chose St Petersburg

This property is located in a community of beautifully maintained waterfront homes. The homeowners take a great deal of pride in their homes and the neighborhood is friendly and safe. There are a lot of community organized events to take advantage of.

What makes this house unique

I love the convenient location to the downtown St Pete area as well as to St Pete Beach, Clearwater Beach and Tampa. Everything is within a short drive and even Disney World and Sea World are a short 1 hr 20 min drive!! What could be better?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Kim;



As we get settled back into our home after a four month stay in yours, I want to report that we have been more than satisfied with every aspect of our tenure here. We feel we were very fortunate to have come across it as a place to stay during the restoration of our house on Snell Isle.



Although we have lived in St. Petersburg for over 10 years we had never recognized all the merits of your community. The area is only two miles farther from the city center than our place we found it even more quiet and traffic free than our place. It is a very safe neighborhood for walking with a very friendly family oriented feel to it.



Your house is in excellent condition and your furnishings far nicer and more complete than we expected of a rental. We have felt more as though we have been house sitting a nice home.



Cheers,



Hall and Wendy

Great location and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I initially talked to Kim until check-out, I was pleased with the experience! She is wonderful and took great care to make sure we felt comfortable. The home is in a great location about 10-20 minutes from all the popular beaches. The bedrooms are spacious, and the living area has been newly decorated. This house was an excellent vacation option for our large family. We would definitely recommend and hope to visit again in the future!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Sandra. You and your husband were a pleasure. Finding guests such as yourselves is as enjoyable for an owner as finding the right vacation rental is for a guest. I'm so glad everything worked out in the end after the initial uncertainty about whether you would be able to come! Your family is welcome anytime. Warmest Regards, Kim

Amazing view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in the area for a conference in Tampa. We had our daughter, son in law and granddaughter with us. The house was beautiful. Perfect for a family get together and great for the little one, very safe. The neighborhood was clean and pretty, we took a walk almost every night. The location was perfect, being so close to Tampa as well as St. Pete. We shopped, we ate, we walked on the beautiful beaches...visited Madeira Beach, which was surprisingly nice! Loved walking the boardwalk. Restaurants galore! Kim was always very helpful, always ready to guide and direct us, available and so helpful with any questions we had during our stay. She went over and above in making our stay a great memory. Truly recommend staying here, our family all agreed that this was probably the most relaxing vacation we've ever taken.

JUST PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely property while visiting Florida for our son's wedding in St. Petersburg. It has absolutely everything you could possibly need while vacationing... including a hair dryer (side joke) three women brought one just in case... felt perfectly at home... enjoyed the pool, morning walks around the peaceful neighborhood and quiet time in the evening on the screened-in patio. The owner, Kim, takes great pride in maintaining a lovely "home" here in Florida and even had a new bbq grill delivered for our use while we were there. Loved the space and furnishings! My granddaughter had to do homework while there and even named the front living room... the "thinking room"... thanks Kim for helping take the worry out of this aspect of a wonderful wedding stay in sunny Florida!

Comfortable, Roomy House in Good Location

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family spent a great week at this property. It was a large enough house that we had plenty of space to enjoy our visit. The large kitchen counter was perfect for the 5 kids in our family. The pool got a lot of use and we enjoyed the dock. The Florida room was a morning favorite to drink coffee and for evening card games. It was a nice neighborhood with friendly residents. Kim was attentive to our requirements and was accessible anytime for us.

Super Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a week at this property. It was absolutely perfect! The kids not only enjoyed the pool, but fishing off the dock in the early mornings and evenings too. Kim was absolutely wonderful to work with. I've already asked to return next year!
