  • Great beach trip!

    "We were looking for places in Florida to travel to from MI. We decided St Pete Beach after I realized it was rated as the #2 beach in FL by trip advisor. It's also only 25 minutes from the TPA airport. We are from Atlanta so we know Florida very well and thoroughly enjoyed St Pete Beach! The unit and owners were fantastic. The communication was great, Paul and Robin were quick to reply to any questions and issues we had. The unit had everything that we were looking for. The pool/hot tub were nice in the evening, the beach is right in front of you and we enjoyed a surf and turf dinner using the grills provided by the pool area. If you don't feel like cooking (which we didn't most nights) there are many restaurants/bars/grocery stores within walking distance. You really don't need a car here--we rented a car for the week but basically only used it to travel from and to the airport. The comments about the "noise" are a little misleading. You are by a somewhat busy road, but you are also staying on the most popular strip on this beach. If you want a really quiet trip you should expect to stay somewhere that isn't beachfront or within walking distance to so many great attractions. We kept the doors and windows open and were not bothered at all. The trip was everything we expected and more! Hopefully we can work out another return visit soon."

  • The Best Ever Grannie Camp by the Sea

    "Each year we try to gather in all of our 6 offspring +a nephew & their crews for Grannie (that's me) Camp at our place in N.GA. Honestly, it's hard to accomplish w/ everyone's busy schedule. This year my oldest son wanted to take his crew to Disney World. So, okay. I'll find someplace in FL, Gulf side (because it is so beautiful). I needed a big place. WOW!!! Birds of Paradise (BoP) so exceeded the pics. 9 beds & 9 baths & plenty of space for littles (air mattresses & a pull out sofa in the middle house). NO, it is not as pristine as the photos. (the spa doesn't work: but who cares? the ocean calls!!) But, at its heart, it is SO very fantastic/magical. What memories we made! The 3 houses are in a line on the marina. Not in a U as the pics would lead you to think. Stuff we did:Hired a boat to pick up some us off the dock for cruising!!! BIG dock. Parasailing. Walking the beach bar crawling! BoP features multiple gathering places for late night owls and early morning larks. There is a great blue heron that visits every morning. Babies & Granddaddy could nap during the day:no problem. Others could party the sun up. Fishing off the dock. The pool is wonderful. Shallow enough for the littles and then the deep end for the tweens/teens. I swear I heard "Marco Polo" 12 zillion times!! A dozen+ poolside tables & umbrella! And when it comes to the ocean, the white sand beach is a short block walk away to the west and then a troop through the dunes. Sunset watching EVERY night. Our family likes to cook so the kitchen in the big house was a dream: double stove tops, double ovens, double microwaves, BIG subzero fridge & freezer PLUS a big-out-the-wazoo cooler & freezer off the kitchen w/ 2 double industrial sized washer & dryers. The big house is so spacious. We played bingo and Cranium and cards/coloring stuff strewn all over those wonderful rugs. And, yes, the piano was played, along w/ some guitar sing alongs. While I think BoP is more often used as a party site, it is the PERFECT place for a family party. It is so spread out w/ so many gathering places. The beds are comfy. There are grocery stores & bottle shops close by. The property manager set up us w/ a local photographer to take a group photo. Wonderful!! I brought an extra fold out table (there were a lot of us!) and I wish I had brought my favorite paring knife. Other than that, BoP provides paper towels, TP, garbage bags (pick up 2x a week) and a multitude of pots&pans in the big house. 5 stars"

  • A bit of heaven in Pass-a-Grille

    "My family, that include grandchildren, stayed here over the summer. I can say, it is so much bang for the buck! The pictures simply do not do it justice. A FULLY stocked kitchen, clean to perfection and a quaint courtyard that is so peaceful! We could not have asked for a better time. There is an extremely short walk to the beach. Can't say enough positive comments about this rental! A must do!"
