'Tween Waters Cottage' sits directly on the sugar sand between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intracoastal Waterway -- giving guests the opportunity to enjoy both beach and boating activities. This single-family, two-story Gulf-front home has all the charm of 'Old Florida' and all the comforts of the 21st century, including wi-fi, 2 flat-panel high-definition cable TV's, and unlimited free phone service to the USA and Canada.
With 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, the house makes a lovely vacation, honeymoon, or winter retirement home for a couple with occasional guests... or for families and groups of up to 8 (9 with a high-rise aerobed).
You'll love the comfy furnishings and the thoughtful amenities, including a large gas barbecue grill, the Gulf-front picnic shelter for lunches on the beach, padded sun-loungers and Adirondack chairs (so you don't miss a leisurely sunset), a porch or deck off each of the 3 upstairs bedrooms, and the private dock across the street. It's easy to drop a fishing line -- or rent a boat or bicycle from the shop just down the street.
The first-floor den/4th bedroom has a queen bed (NOT a sofa bed) and an adjoining bathroom... ideal for folks who don't do stairs. The king bed in the Master Bedroom features a 2.5 inch memory-foam mattress topper -- it's like sleeping on a cloud!
'Tween Waters Cottage' is professionally cleaned before you arrive and is provided to you fully furnished, including beach towels, sand toys, bath and kitchen supplies, and paper products. Shopping, restaurants, and all the attractions of the Tampa Bay area are close by, but once the soothing sight of the Gulf and the relaxing sound of the surf work their magic, you will find it difficult to leave. This quiet residential neighborhood has no high-rise condos within a thousand feet. The beach feels like your own private piece of paradise.
Enjoy the water view from every room, a gorgeous sunrise every morning, and a brilliant sunset every night. You, your family and friends will make memories for a lifetime -- at 'Tween Waters Cottage.'

About the owner: We both cherish our childhood memories of vacations at the shore. For Barbara, it was picnics on the sand and swimming in the Atlantic. For Dan, it was fun times with the family water-skiing and boating on the Delaware River. So, when the rare opportunity came to purchase our own beachfront vacation home on the gentle Gulf of Mexico with a dock for boating and fishing, we couldn't pass it up. Now we share our precious find with other families looking to relax and re-connect by the sea.
Why the Owner Chose Beach House: 'Tween Waters Cottage' is only 30 minutes away from our main family home in St. Petersburg. This ensures we are nearby to respond quickly if our guests need us -- and makes it easy for us to use the Cottage frequently ourselves.
The Unique Benefits at this House: 'Tween Waters Cottage' has a very peaceful, private atmosphere. No canyons of condos. No shared walls with strangers. The house is a rarity in our part of Florida -- a direct beachfront single-family home nestled between two other single-family homes. There are plenty of restaurants and activities nearby... but coming home to the Cottage makes you feel like you are entering another world... and leaving your cares behind.
