Wonderful Family Vacation - October 5 - 10, 2017

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience at renting thru Home Away or VRBO and this property more than exceeded our expectations. The house is beautifully furnished and so well equipped that we realized after we arrived that we had brought so many things that we didn't need to bring. This home offered so much for the grandkids to do that they didn't want to leave the house to go to the beach. They loved the swimming pool and hot tub during the day, and board games at night. The whole family enjoyed fishing on the dock where we caught many different species of fish, even a sting ray. We also enjoyed the canoe, kayak and paddle boards.

The owners are great and very detail oriented and want to make sure you enjoy your stay. They had wine and crackers waiting for us when we arrived.

We highly recommend this property and hope to return next year.

Toronto Blue Jays Road Show 2017

  • 5 of 5

We travelled down to Tampa from Woodstock Ontario Canada for a baseball road show. The Seahorse at Shore Acres was our home away from home for the week and it was 5 stars all the way from presentation to habitation. It was neat, clean, cozy, tastefully decorated and had everything you need to live away from home..... it even had 2 nice bikes to use along with pool toys, kayaks and paddle boards. The Tampa Bay Rays took 2 out of 3 games from our jays but that was the only complaint. We watched 3 pleasant games at Tropicana Field during the week and around that we went to the Saturday down town market, Mazarros' - everything Italian market, St. Petersburg/Passé Grill Beach, Johns Pass for jet skiing at woodys and some around town treasure hunting at the thrift stores and book stores. When hanging around the house we enjoyed the pool and hot tub and even jumped off the dock to swim in the Bay. We polled our family and everyone emphatically said they would return in a heart beat. You can't get a better review than that. Thanks for a wonderful week.

Family Vacation July 28, 2017 to August 2nd

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house because my mom, who is 83, would be able to do water things with us and not have to walk far to get to them. The pool, hot tub, and dock were just perfect. We spent a lot of time in the pool and fishing. At night the light attracts SO many fish it was fun just to sit out there and watch them. My son did catch a tiny stingray and some catfish, which he is still talking about!! We loved having the use of the paddle boards, kayak, fishing equipment, bikes, wagon to get stuff onto the beach, just SO many extras that are usually not included. This was a wonderful house and I'm hoping to come back again soon.

It was a beautiful setting with the bay and it was so relaxing to sit on the dock and watch the fish jumping and even saw dolphins in the distance one evening! It was wonderful having the pool handy! Best experience!!!

Perfectly furnished and equipped house!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at his house on the bay! The house was perfectly furnished and equipped! The kids loved the pool, and it was awesome to keep my boat on the lift all week. We had some great excursions out to Egmont Key and Beer Can Island. St Petersburg Municipal Marina is a short pit stop away for fuel or to dock at the "metered" slips.

The location is perfect, too. We did the usual Tampa and Clearwater attractions and it does not take long to get pretty much anywhere. The neighborhood is extremely quiet and peaceful, as is the small inlet the house is situated on. You'll enjoy watching the dolphins from the dock....

Great hosts who think of everything you'd need. I definitely reccomend this property if you plan on visiting the area. And if you have a boat, that's and extra bonus!
