  • Janet and Bob Macfarlane

    "Just rented this house for vacation and couldn't be happier. Very cozy home with everything you could possible need. Everything is top quality in the kitchen, so you can cook anything you want. The pool area is so private! Very quiet neighborhood and a great location to the beach. We had a great time! Owners are wonderful to deal with also."

  • Recent vacation stay...

    "From 4/10 thru 4/19 we stayed at the Gulfside Inn in St. Pete Beach and I could not have asked for a better place to stay. The owner, Kathy, was pleasant, helpful and very accommodating. Our suite was clean, spacious and perfect for our needs. It was beyond our expectations. The setting was quite and peaceful and the location was just a short walk to everything. Perfect vacation. We plan on going back in the fall. Same place. Loved it! Tim & Tammy."

  • PERFECT!

    "This was my first vacation since the death of my husband and I certainly selected the best place. Your condo was perfect for me and it was not only comfortable but bright and cheery. I did not want to go too far from my home but wanted to enjoy the beautiful St Petersburg Beach and surroundings. Friends came for a day and we enjoyed the beach (only a block away). We went out to eat and I highly recommend Veruccis Italian Restaurant, Skidders Restaurant and of course Woody’s. I loved having my coffee on your little patio and watching the birds fly by and relaxing. Everyone was so friendly! Thank you again it a wonderful “staycation”. I intend to come back again real 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"
