About Fraser

We have been vacationing in St Pete Beach since 1991 and have rented many properties. We eventually became tired of renting run down properties in need of refurbushment and we always thought it would be great to buy something and make it how we wanted it.

We found this house and saw the potential in it, we installed a new kitchen and then spent 2 weeks furnishing it and making it how we wanted it. As you can see from the description above we have spent a lot of time and money making this a luxury property, and from our reviews so far it would seem that we have achieved our goal.

Our kids love the pool and the house, as you can see, and we are sure you will too.

Fraser, Mary & the Kids

Fraser purchased this house in 2010

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family stayed at the house on our first trip to St

Petersburg in July 2014 and we found it superb holiday experience. We have not stayed in the Tampa area before. What a pleasant surprise for us all.

The villa far exceeded our expectations. The villa has pleasant bedrooms,

bathrooms and a beautiful living area and kitchen. All areas are large and far exceed what you would normally expect from a two bedroom villa. It is fully equipped with everything you would wish for and finished with a high standard of furnishing. The lanai area was large and spacious and offered family alfresco dining. The pool is superb. Large, warm set amidst good sized, private landscaped gardens. Pool loungers are well cared for and all soft furnishings are spotless. The whole villa is immaculate and very clean.

Best of all is the owner, Fraser, who is easy to communicate with

and helpful. He is a superb host. The security deposit was returned very

swiftly without issue.

We would recommend the villa to other guests without hesitation. We stayed in Florida for 3 weeks staying in a further two 5 star spa hotels, one 4 star boutique hotel and a 7 bedroom villa in Kissimmee. This villa was the best, truly, you will not be disappointed.

Absolutely amazing place.

Me and my family had an amazing stay there. The house is beautiful and in great condition. We really enjoyed everything it had to offer especially the lanai and the pool. The neighborhood is also very nice and in a great location.

Not too good.

  • 1 of 5

Need to clean the pool more often. Always full of dirt. Couldn't use it the last day because the water smelled so bad. Pool cleaners came on Tuesday and did a half-ass cleaning job. The next day the yard people came and blew leaves and dirt back into the pool. Suggest if you are looking for someplace like this you get one that has a screen covering the pool. House was nice. Streets flood when it rains heavy, almost got stuck in the middle of the street one evening after a heavy rain.

Owner's Response: Charles, I have noted your comments, however I would like to respond and explain the events that occurred. You arrived on the Sunday after there had been heavy rain and strong winds the week before. You contacted me to ask to get the pool cleaned, I organised my friend who looks after the house to come through and clean the pool for you. You appeared very happy with what Earl did. On the Tuesday the pool company came and cleaned it again, checked the chemical levels and cleared out the pump etc. There was more bad weather that week which would have put more debris in the pool. There is a net available to take out debris during your stay. You did not contact me again, so it appeared that everything was OK. The pictures on the website clearly show that there is no screen and the there is a lot of large trees and plants. I do not understand your comment about the water smelling, in 7 years nobody has ever complained about the pool before. I am glad you thought the house was nice. I am not responsible for the upkeep of the roads or drains, when it rains in Florida it really does rain, but it also clears quickly. Fraser

All the amenities & more of being at home, very nice property!

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained, updated property with nice decorating and finishing touches. It was clean, very comfortable, stylish and we really felt like we were at home and could really relax. The home had everything that we needed, we were not inconvenienced one bit. The kids enjoyed the pool day after day, the neighborhood was quiet and passers by walking their dogs were very friendly, both morning and evening. We felt very safe and hope to come again next year for our family's vacation. Thank you Fraser and family!!!

We had a wonderful time! Thank you for sharing your home with us. My kids loved the pool despite it being on the chilly side. We absolutely loved the Pass-a-grille area and spent a lot of time there. It's beautiful! Thanks again!!
