The most unique thing about our rentals is we are a 'Mom and Pop' type family style rentals.

On purpose we decided to keep our little business small and fun.

We are located in a residential area. NOT A HUGE condominium type thing or a 55+ trailer park.

From the front of our home just off the road our home looks like a normal typical 1950's bungalow..............

but once you go through the back private gate....... It's paradise! Between our home and the cottage is the pool and 'tubbie' This creates a completley private space for you.

Of course the pool and 'tubbie' would for guests to use if they prefer.

In the 'winter' Dec-Feb. we try to maintain the pool temperature at a nice warm 76-78 degrees. By the end of Feb.the pool temp. is a warm 80-85 degrees.The reason I tell people this,is that many people think that when it is advertized as a heated pool that is not true.

The best part is, since guests don't have to 'fight, bribe or lunge or have someone hold your lounge chair should it be claimed by some poor soul who has been wandering around vainly trying to find that *perfect* lounger.

Whether a guest is on a cruise or at some condo or worst of all those 55+community we strive to be the exact opposite. At your home here it's so private that we only need 2 loungers with 'comfy' cushions.

Our backyard is {private, quiet, lushly landscaped and Ohhhhh so quiet!}. We have 1sweet juicer orange tree. We also have a huge papaya tree. So tall it's nearly impossible to pick the fruit.

If you like privacy and safety and art, gardening or just reading a book this is the place for you!

I am an artist and enjoy many mediums. My main passion is pottery so officially I am a Potter. I do ceramics and the really neat thing is my guests are told to feel free to 'putter' about my studio. This is free of charge to 'putter' about. I do charge a very minimal amount for paint, glaze and firing based on what you create. Since the cost of glazes and firing can become rather expensive.

OK,enough about the art.

The entire yard is fenced in so if you do have a favorite pet, no worries they are safe.

We also will 'pet sit your Fido, kitty, birdie, hamsters or whatever God's creature you may love.

If you enjoy phsical exersize we have bikes, 1-women's and 1-mens free for your use. flashy bikes, but in great shape. There is a trail Pinellas Bike trail that is a wonderful renovated train line. You can bike from St. Petersburg (south) to Tarpon Springs (north) Tarpon Springs is a very cool historical town. Sponge divers from Greece came over hundreds of years ago to dive for {what else}SPONGES. To this day they still dive for the sponges. But the main attractions now are the quaint, cosy shops for tourists there also is an awesome resturant called Pappas' The favorite dish is called {what else?} Greek salad. Underneath heaping plate of lettuce and feta cheese is a surprise which I am not going to say what it is. Our guests will have to check it out themselves.

The seafood is excellent, I would reccomend the fried Calamari.

This area in Tarpon Springs is about a 1/2 hour drive depending on the time of day. The police department is rather small, but 'mighty' Watch your speed.

If you prefer to ride bikes it takes about 1 or 1/2 to 2 hours. Keep in mind that Fl. does not have many hills. Mostly flat the Pinellas trail is very flat and easy to ride. a beautiful ride,

For the first time ever I am going to be giving classes on Stand Up Paddling Or {SUP} I have paddled for years and kyaking was my first love, but then SUP came along and I was hooked!

If any guest is interested in paddling I will come up with price that would be satisfactory.I also will hopefully be providing kyaks {2} I have 2 SUP boards. 1 is older, but works well so it could be a could be couples 'date'

As for other interesting things to do. There is the Salvador Dali museum in St. Pete. and the Chihully Glass museum. That is a Must See! Truly breathtaking.

Busch 1gardens Amusement Park is about 1 hour north of here and I would reccomend that over Disney World anytime. Disney World is about a 2 hour drive again depending on traffic.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I'm a transplant from Michigan and have always detested cold weather. My parents immigrated with 4 of my older siblings from the Netherlands. They also loved the cooler weather. I moved here in 1990 and bought my house with the little cottage thnking my parents would love it for a place for them to retire part-time. But unfortunatley they passed on so I decided to turn it into a seasonal rental. I love meeting new people and have made many great friends by starting this little venture. It truly is a joy for me to make vacationers comfortable and happy. I have a knack to know when the visitors want privacy or a bit of a 'talk'. We know that people value their privacy and respect this. So far this has been a great experience for me and my husband and We love it! I also am an artist {potter} and enjoy working in the warm weather.. I love making things that people can use for everyday type cooking. Any guest, male or female or both can 'play' in my studio free of charge. Chlidren love it! (dependent on studio being open)

Why the Owner Chose Belleair Bluffs, FL, USA:
I just knew that this was the perfect place for my husband and me. If you read the visitor comments you will get an idea why this is such a popular place. Actually in order to book for the winter months it should be done a year in advance. Summer bookings are not as difficult.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
The best thing about living here is the close proximity to our beach! I also love the small town feel of the area. I love to garden and having a fenced private yard is like owning a private park. I also love doing pottery in an on-site studio and when available you are welcome to watch or even get dirty trying your hand at it! A great benefit is the biking trail close by, beach 1.5 miles away and so many shops and restaurants in walking distance. I know the area very well, so as a result I am able to give you some different ideas and 'tricks' than the normal theme parks to visit. St. Petersburg has some of the best museums to visit, including the 'Salvador Dali' and 'Chihully Glass Museum' I also know of some 'secret' dog beaches and all of the tricks for free parking at the beaches. Some nearby beaches have free parking which is an added bonus. On site pottery studio. Free to get dirty :)
