St. Petersburg house description
This home was added as a rental property in July 2013. It has been renovated, and ready for travelers. The property owner and property manager are experienced, and have a second rental property several houses away on the same canal. (See VRBO property 428167 for more information.) This property is a L-shaped property, with a large master suite on one end, and two bedrooms on the other, with pocket doors dividing all bedrooms from the family and large Florida rooms. Those two rooms overlook the large screened in patio and in ground swimming pool. The master bedroom, Family room, and large Florida room have sliding doors and views to the patio, seawall, dock, and canal. The patio and pool are screened; the patio is covered by a roof. The private dock is under repair; the boat lift is usable. Special care has also been taken to provide room darkening shades and curtains, to allow peacefull rest in the bedrooms, while those who are not resting can enjoy the central get-together spots. The pool is surrounded by a safety gate.
The two car garage provides plenty of storage for travelers. There is amble closet storage in all bedrooms, including two walk-in closets in the master suite.
The kitchen has modern appliances, and anything needed to prepare meals for groups up to 15, assuming you will invite friends and family to visit.
The rental property manager is located close by, and provides any support required, including arranging special cleaning services during your stay, if needed. The use of the washer and dryer is included, as well as the supplies.
One of the two docks are being rebuilt, check with the property manager to determine progress. The electric boat lift is useable, but requires previous arrangement to be made with the property manager. Estimated dock completion is Nov, 2013.
The screened porch and open patio by the seawall allows the choice of enjoying the sun, or the cool shade.
There is a small beach and park within walking distance of the property, that has an exercise course, a dog walk, tennis courts, and a small beach and boat launch. Within 3 miles is the famous, award winning St. Pete Beach, with gourgeous sand, great water, and easy parking, 100 feet from the beach. Within 5 miles is Fort DeSoto park and beach, with great bike paths, excellent swimming and boating, and fantastic camping, with some spots right on the water.

- The Dali Museum is a must see. Close to that is the Chilhuly Glass Museum and Works, an unbelieveable experience. The Sunken Gardens is an attraction that is well worth the quiet time to walk through. Downtown St. Pete has Saturday morning farmers markets. These are all within 3 miles of the property!...moreless

Diamond Boyz Baseball parents
I will start my review by stating that this was the BEST vacation we had had in a very long time. We were in St Pete for a baseball tourney and had rented another house from Ken Fisher for our team. I explained to Ken our frustration in trying to find a place close to our team for parents. A few days later he emailed to say this property was being completed and asked if the parents would be interested in renting. He was truly a lifesaver! All information needed about the rental was provided well in advance and Ken was always available by email or phone. He also has a local property manager for the "just in cases." I stayed at the house with my husband and one other mom. When we arrived at the house, it was better than we could have dreamed. It was BEAUTIFUL!!!! The pics show the house as it truly is. And the best part was that it was 4 houses from our kids. Having both houses allowed our kids to move around more. The fishing from the sea wall and swimming were the highlights for many of our players. The huge master bedroom was a very pleasant surprise. The renovations were very tasteful with relaxing colors and comfortable furnishings. The pool was sparkling clean. The sliding doors to the patio overlooking the pool and bay are a wonderful way to let the outside in. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could ever need. Just staying in this house was vacation enough but its close proximity to shopping, restaurants, and other attractions makes you want to get out and explore. This house is great for any size group in town for any reason. There is so much more that can be said about this property but its one of those things that you have to experience. Words can only say but so much. I have recommended this house and the other to anyone that would listen. We had a wonderful time and look forward to returning if we play in this same tourney next summer. Ken, you and Jina were wonderful.....Thanks again for the great time!!!!

About: I have owned a waterfront property on the same street for several years, and was happy when I was kayaking past this property, and found it was going on the market. It has been fun fixing it up and furnishing it with renters in mind. In addition, this is potentially my retirement home! It is very secure, quiet, and perfect for sharing good times with families and friends. The layout invites getting together in the shared areas, while providing peaceful separation for those who need the occasional Florida nap.
Why St. Petersburg:
The house is all block construction, with a great layout. It is on an island, with two bridges providing access. The property is very safe. If you google Coquina Key, you will see that the island is relatively small. Also, the property is protected from storm surge, because the water sweeps past the island. I bought it because it is great for fishing, kayaking, boating, swimming, and napping. By car, it is 3 miles to downtown St. Pete, 35 minutes to Tampa Airport, and two hours to Orlando.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Getting into Tampa Bay requires about 3 to 4 minutes by kayak. It is possible to kayak to downtown St. Pete by kayak from the property. Kayaks are available for use, some at no charge, if arrangements are made in advance. Bring a camera, because you will see beautiful Tampa Bay shots, manatees in season, dolphins, rays, plenty of fish, and many birds, such as egrets, diving ducks, great blue Herons, and Night Herons.
