Ideal holiday villa - pool spa tropical garden - perfect St Pete beach getaway

This is not an apartment, this is a beautifully designed detached luxury residence situated on palm-fringed tropical Isla del Sol, just across the bridge by the Don Cesar, St. Pete Beach, Florida.

Stylishly refurbished,, our 3-bedroom designer home will comfortably accommodate a family of six. Yet it is also perfect for three couples traveling together, or as a romantic and extra-spacious getaway for two. The ground level den converts into another bedroom with a sofa bed if the stairs are a problem.

Our family home is light, modern, airy and beautifully furnished with every modern convenience. We upgrade it every year to the highest standards. Ideal for families in search of a high level of comfort and all the convenience of a 'home-away-from-home.'

Two minutes drive from the sugar-white sands of St. Pete Beach and the historic Don CeSar this lovely Island View 3-bedroom / 2.5-bathroom Town Home is situated across the bridge in Isla del Sol's exclusive Mirada Circle.

Amenities in this stylish 2-storey designer-furnished private Town Home include a fully equipped up-to-the minute kitchen with microwave and dishwasher. There is a modern washer/dryer, private garage, 4 color TVs, VCR and stereo. And of course it is full air-conditioning throughout. This beautiful home now includes free high speed 70Mbps wi-fi broadband & 46' Sony flatscreen. plus TVs in all bedrooms. And a new electric BBQ!

It is ideal for the perfect family beach and pool holiday.You are just twenty paces from our shimmering blue pool where you can relax on a sunbed or take a quiet cooling dip, then unwind in the bubbling Jacuzzi on the sun deck.

Back at home, relax in the large, beautifully-appointed sitting room with floor-to-ceiling Florida blinds leading out onto the patio and barbeque terrace, which in turn looks out over landscaped lawns with an ornamental lake and fountain.

Retire to the quiet privacy of the den if you want to get away from others. For family members who wish to live on a single floor, the den easily converts into a downstairs bedroom. The 3rd bathroom is also on this floor.

Dine in comfort & splendour inside or take a cooling drink while using the new electric BBQ on the patio overlooking the tropical garden. Watch the wild ducks mockingbirds and herons.

I will email you back within 24 hours then pass your booking to our secure local agent with whom we have worked for 12 years. She will arrange your reservation details and take a secure, returnable Visa deposit. At all stages, you will be dealing with reliable, trustworthy human beings, not computer algorithms.

Why julian moseley chose St Petersburg Area

Downtown St. Petersburg is known for its culture, art, boutique shopping, outdoor concerts, local breweries and fine dining; visitors have plenty of options! Some popular attractions include the Dali Museum, Vinoy Park, Beach Drive, and Busch Gardens. Annual events include the Gasparilla Pirate Fest, Holiday Boat Parades, Rock the Park, Tampa Boat Show, July 4th & New Year's Eve Firework celebrations. Tampa Bay has something for everyone!

What makes this townhome unique

Luxury, comfort, near everything. Perfect family home to relax in.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Julian, We had a safe trip back to Germany and like to give you some feedback about your house. Staying at your Florida home was a real pleasure for us and we throughly enjoyed every single day. The house is so beautiful and perfectly equipped, we liked the neighborhood a lot and felt very safe! Since we are a family of four, three bedrooms and two bathrooms were perfect for us. We enjoyed going to nearby Pass-A-Grille Beach as well as relaxing at the community pool. We had a perfect vacation which we throughly enjoyed and would like to spend our summer 2016 vacation in your house once more. May we ask you to reserve our next stay as soon as we have booked our flights for next year (August/September 2016)? With many thanks and best regards,
Nov 2016

Lovely clean home with good owner,

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this property for a week to recover from two weeks at Disney. The home is lovely and the owner Julian and his rental agents more then friendly.

Pros -

Clean home, well presented with quality furniture and fittings. close to beach but not that close if you want peace and quiet, pool on site lovely, ample parking.

Cons -

If travelling with teens like we did maybe a little too quiet, the home owners association rules do not lend themselves to having that little bit of fun.

That is not the owners fault but there is a couple there who live on site and make every one feel uncomfortable, other pool users felt the same as we did

One day the wife just stared at us from a gate as if she thought who are we, whilst we were in the pool, would not mind if it was busy and we were loud but it was neither. This couple are the sort of people who think they own the place, even go the lengths of putting towels down at 0700 hrs to reserve chairs even though pool is barley used by anyone else as there is a picture perfect beach just five minutes away.

Again not owners fault but be prepared to be made to feel uncomfortable I would have had words with them as to who do they think they are but Julian is such a nice guy you do not want to cause him any bother.

The home, the owner 5 star, peaceful, relaxing, break if your older couple or groups of adults.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 4) had the pleasure of staying in this lovely house twice (summer 2015 + 2017). It was everything as advertized plus more. Nice furniture and bedding, complete stocked kitchen, cosy terrace, washer and dryer, parking in front of the garage, wonderful garden. The house is located in a beautiful community with pool area. Beaches, parks, restaurants and shopping are near by. We would recommend this "home away from home" and will come again for sure. Thank you Julian, for your hospitality.

Isla del Sol is an island community of 350 acres of beautifully manicured tropical gardens surrounded by the waters of Boca Ciega Bay. It is located on the southernmost tip of St. Petersburg, a pebble's throw from St Pete Beach. With an average temperature of 73.7 degrees and 361 days of sunshine a year, St. Petersburg is Florida's 'Sunshine City'. The island boasts an 18-hole championship golf course, the Isla del Sol Yacht and Country Club, as well as a beautiful white sand beach with mature coconut palms. There is also 'The Shoppers Village' complete with a bank, post office, several restaurants, clothing shops, a florist, gift shops as well as many other quality shops. Isla is conveniently located to a variety of recreational facilities above and beyond the local amenities.The unspoilt beaches of Ft. DeSoto are just a short drive to the South. The Gulf Beaches are a 3-minute drive to the West. If you like golf, tennis or boating Isla has a country club that consists of The Isla del Sol Golf Course; it is an exceptional 18-hole championship layout.

Challenging fairways, beautiful bunkered greens,shimmering lakes and gardens enhance the beauty and heighten the challenge of the course. The Tennis Center consists of nine lighted soft, Har-Trucourts, first class instruction, clinics, member events, round robins, mixed doubles, active singles and doubles competitions, and other events held throughout the year. If you are a boater there is also a yacht club. It boasts a 78- slip Yacht Basin for sailboats as well as large motor yachts and small runabouts alike.

It is not uncommon to see the muted pink roseate spoonbills feeding in the mornings in the tidal creeks. There are also numerous birds to be seen, such as the great blue heron, cormorants, Florida wood storks, the majestic osprey as well as many other sea birds feeding and resting in and around one of several of our lakes located throughout the island.

The quaint Spanish named streets meander through beautiful stately royal palms, queen palms, oak trees as well as hundreds of other tropical specimens. The architecture is comprised of high-rise, mid-rise, 2, 3 and 4 story buildings as well as townhouses all with a Mediterranean flair.

The island is truly paradise. It is a totally relaxing place to be.
