St. Pete Beach house description

One of the last single family homes in the Resort District of St Pete Beach!

Experience living in an original St. Pete Beach rustic home where the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico are a 30 second walk away with 7 miles of public beach to explore. Hunt for sea shells, enjoy a leisurely swim, fish if you feel like it. Walk out the front door and see brilliant sunrises to your left, spectacular sunsets to your right. You’ll find the perfect combination of sand, sea and sky at this destination…

This two-story beach house includes 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths with a large deck and gas grill for cookouts under the night sky. The master bedroom on the second floor has a private balcony for two and the back garden has a second patio area suitable for sunbathing or just relaxing.

For those who need to work while they're away, we have in-home office facilities for guests that include a printer/scanner/copier and high speed Internet connectivity with Wi-Fi. Our telephones are cordless models with speakerphone capabilities. Please contact us if you need more information as we have a wide range of additional capabilities.

The owners live on St. Pete Beach, making sure their home and yard are kept in excellent condition for their guests' enjoyment.

No need to test your skills dodging traffic on Gulf Boulevard from this house, you're on the beach side and ready to go!

                This beach house is a real gem! We have stayed here for a month, two years in a row, and have already signed up for next year. The location is awesome - beach, restaurants, grocery store, drug store, liquor store, gift shops etc. all within walking distance. The house is well maintained and is spotless upon arrival. Modern kitchen and appliances, flat screen tvs, wifi, home office etc. We spend lots of time relaxing in the private backyard - deck, gas grill, etc., this house has it all!

                Recommended for: Age 55+, families with young children, tourists without a car, romantic getaway, sightseeing, families with teenagers, girls getaway.

                Thanksgiving week at the beach house was fabulous. Morning walks on the beach, watching stingrays and dolphins, collecting shells, and quality time with our family in St. Petersburg. The weather was just fabulous with no rain... a little too cool to swim, but mornings on the deck with our coffee were great! We enjoyed our little piece of heaven and hope we can return soon. We hate to leave!

                Raymond and Debbie are the most caring people that you will run into in the business world. They have made an opportunity for others to experience something that is very rare…a real life on the beach. You’ll quickly find out how Debbie feels about the family home she grew up in!! The beach house provides all the modern conveniences but Debbie was careful to keep the old feel. Debbie and Raymond go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need, and are always ready to help with ideas, things to do, etc. Being most stays are extended, they have provided an awesome office space so that you can take care of any necessary work tasks during your stay. If you are not familiar with this section of Florida’s beaches – it is something to see. The water is warm and usually clear depending on recent Gulf storms. During our visit this year, we had some of the clearest water I have seen in my 16 years on the Nature Coast. The sand is soft and beautiful and the beach itself so peaceful. You won’t be disappointed with any part of your stay at Debbie’s St. Pete Beach House.

                Terrific visit! Beach house exceeded our high expectations after reading all the positive reviews. I only want to stay at this beach house when I visit St.Pete. There were so many thoughtful amenities that we really appreciated! All the small touches went so far--water toys, ziplock bags, spices & dried herbs! We had so much fun!

                Staying in this house was a wonderful experience for our family. We throughly enjoyed the relaxing feel of the house. It is very well maintained and I would highly recommend. The location is perfect- right next to beach as well as entertainment and wonderful restaurants. The pictures of the house accurately reflect it.

                This property was our home away from home. SUPER clean with all the ammenities. The location is amazing. Everything you need is in walking distance (groceries, ice cream, drug store - all shopping needs) and literally walked out the front door, turn right, steps to the mini bridge that leads to Florida's best beach. White sand that is also a spectacular walking beach too. When we did not feel like cooking we had a huge choice in where to eat. There are wonderful resturants along the beach (some live with music) and restaurant galore on Gulf Blvd. The owners are really nice too. Great for all ages - something for everyone - couples or families. We will be going back for sure but book early. This place is a real find!!!!! I have already booked for next year :)

                We stayed at the beach house for 1 month in July. We had a teenager and my elderly mother with us. The house was perfect and suited all of our needs. There is a seperate bedroom with ensuite and a sitting/TV room on the first floor which was ideal, Mom had seperate space and didn't have to climb stairs to the bedroom/washroom. The house was impecable, we commented a number of times, that in all of our travels we have never stayed at a place so clean. We were in want for nothing, the house was well stocked with cleaning supplies/toiletries. The location was perfect, steps to the beach and resturants. Can't say enough about the owners, Deborah and Raymond went above and beyond, extremely accomodating. I would recommend the beach house to anyone, especially for long term stays, as it feels like home the minute you arrive.

                This is our second time staying at the beach house. We loved it just as much, if not more, this time around. The home is kept in impeccable condition. It was perfect for our family of 4. It is perfectly located with close proximity to everything we needed- grocery store, restaurants, and, of course, just steps to the beach. We look forward to our next stay.
