                  Location

                  The (free) Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary is a 5 minute walk. Trolley that runs up and down beaches from Clearwater to Pass-A-Grille so no car needed. Skydiving only 1 hour away with specials from owners (who live nearby) on Tandem Skydives. Beautiful Downtown St Petersburg is only 20 minutes away with shopping, movies, deli's to fine dining, Theatre in the Park, antique stores, great music venues and several Day spa's. We are only 25 minutes from Tampa International Airport and an easy 1.5 hours from Disney World, SeaWorld, Pleasure Island and Discovery Cove, where you can swim with dolphins. Only 45 minutes from Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. There is a great coffee shop right across the Blvd to the beach and a great selection of restaurants (from fine to fast) Thai, seafood etc. and pubs all within easy walking distance.

                   

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: Greta has been on this beach since the mid-80's and Nigel since the late '90's. It's a great area - quiet and safe.

                  Why the Owner Chose Redington Shores:
                  The property was completely remodeled a few years ago to the standard seen in the photos - the way we would like it if we lived here!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  It's a short walk to the beach and a quiet and friendly neighborhood. The cottage is very nicely appointed and allows for a relaxing time.
