Quite treasure.

  • 5 of 5

Easily one of the best places we have ever stayed. The house is tucked away in a quite neighborhood and the view was gorgeous. The house was meticulously maintained and we couldn't have asked for better owners. Chris and Kristy went out of their way to not only make us feel welcome but also and gave us many suggestions on the local restaurants, stores and entertainment. We would definitely recommend and would stay here again. A special "shout out" to Gary for all of his kindness!!

Lovely location, perfectly furnished and supplied

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful hosts have thought of everything to make a stay effortless - the kitchen is better outfitted than most homes, lots of family games in the living room, huge TV’s in every room, outdoor sports equipment, bikes, cute pool, hot tub - etc etc! We are looking forward to a return visit next year.

Amazing views and everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! My family of 6 stayed here while in town to celebrate Christmas with extended family. The home is even more spacious and beautiful than the pictures portray. The view of the water from all of the rooms was amazing. We loved taking out the boat, the kayak, paddle boards, fishing from the pier and relaxing in the pool. Close to downtown, the beaches, shopping and a beautiful neighborhood to walk. Didn't have time to take out the bikes, but that would have been a beautiful way to spend a morning exploring!

Chris and Kristy have stocked the home with everything you need to cook, relax and enjoy- right down to sunblock! The heated pool was amazing on December 27th! What a place- would love to buy it if you ever sell! We will definitely be back!

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.

Woodstock, Ontario. Canada

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.
