Property description

A completely remodeled and updated Beach Cottage with a calm Zen theme. Just a 2 minute walk to the public beach (across Gulf Blvd so small kids will need to be supervised crossing the road) and surrounded by the bay with access to benches for watching the boats go by, the sunrise or fishing.
A Zen-like atmosphere with Bamboo Floors, new stainless appliances, travertine and glass master bath with walk-in shower.
Granite countertops, Bamboo shades, original art work by a local artist and Asian antiques throughout.
A very quiet street and neighborhood with no through traffic. Safe with friendly neighbors and atmosphere.
Outside covered Patio with (gas) BBQ and a large grass area.

Notes:

We will send you an agreement via e-mail which you can print, review and return with initial payment. It explains the payment plan and other details you will find of note. It's easy and more personal :)

CANCELLATION POLICY - We are sensitive to unexpected events that may interrupt your travel plans and urge you to call us if anything occurs. However, we reserve the right to retain some funds in the event that you cancel the booking. Please consider travel insurance for this possibility.

Notice of 45 days or more and we will refund all of the funds paid to that date.

Less than 45 days will incur a 50% retention of total booking amount. If the cottage is subsequently rented out to new guests at no loss to the landlords then all retained funds will be returned.

No Credit Cards (to keep costs down as best we can).

Therefore, personal checks, bank draft, money order etc.

We usually take an initial payment of about $200 to secure dates, then the balance is due in two payments leading up to occupancy and fully paid up 4 weeks prior to arrival.

If the booking is at short notice, payment on arrival as we live close by the cottage.

Location

The (free) Suncoast Seabird Sanctuary is a 5 minute walk. Trolley that runs up and down beaches from Clearwater to Pass-A-Grille so no car needed. Skydiving only 1 hour away with specials from owners (who live nearby) on Tandem Skydives. Beautiful Downtown St Petersburg is only 20 minutes away with shopping, movies, deli's to fine dining, Theatre in the Park, antique stores, great music venues and several Day spa's. We are only 25 minutes from Tampa International Airport and an easy 1.5 hours from Disney World, SeaWorld, Pleasure Island and Discovery Cove, where you can swim with dolphins. Only 45 minutes from Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. There is a great coffee shop right across the Blvd to the beach and a great selection of restaurants (from fine to fast) Thai, seafood etc. and pubs all within easy walking distance.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Greta has been on this beach since the mid-80's and Nigel since the late '90's. Greta has her own flooring business and Nigel is former military, former civilian law enforcement and now a commercial helicopter pilot and skydiving instructor (who has taken several guests on their first tandem skydive :)

Why the Owner Chose Redington Shores, FL, USA:
It's a peaceful property, surrounded by lush vegetation, a peaceful street & a safe neighborhood with no through traffic. The property was completely remodeled a few years ago to the standard seen in the photos - the way we would like it if we lived here! It's just a short walk to the beach. Several restaurants are close by and very easy to walk to (Seabreeze, Beachside Grille, Talay Thai), as well as Beach Pizza, The Friendly Tavern and Candy Kitchen Ice Cream.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Nice artwork and antiques complement the cottage. Other than your personal toiletries, everything you need is here.
