About the Property

Traders' Haven - 5 bdrm/3bath/Tropical Garden- Giant Jacuzzi, 8 Beds/Slps 16!!

We have included more photos and a link to great aerial views at our website below.
5 Bedrooms - Tropical Jasmine Garden - Jacuzzi-Spa - 8 Beds, Sleeps 16

Traders' Haven is a spacious 5 bedroom home occupying the entire second floor of the Mountcastles' building on historic 8th Avenue, Pass-a-grille, St. Pete Beach. The Mountcastles have operated a small trading company importing folk art from dozens of countries for twenty years. They are currently working overseas with their five children.

This unique home is bright and airy with high ceilings and windows all around. Oriental rugs, high gloss wood floors, antiques and folk art from all continents of the world add to the ambiance.

Accommodations: 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen (three full size refrigerators) 8 Beds: 4 Queen sized, 1 Double, and 3 Double Futon Beds sleep 16 comfortably.

An enclosed air-conditioned porch/living room for lounging, dining and watching sunrises and sunsets covers the entire south face of the building.

There is also a large open deck with table and chairs on the north side. This deck overlooks a Tropical Garden - filled with jasmine and lush tropical plantings. We have placed a giant jacuzzi (8 feet in diameter, with a waterfall and lighting) in the privacy of this walled and locked garden.

Enjoy great sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico and sunrise over the Intracoastal waterway in Boca Ciega Bay while dining on our porch! The Gulf of Mexico is just a few steps to the west and Boca Ciega Bay with the Intracoastal waterway is just a few steps to the east.

Traders' Haven enjoys a great central location! Historic 8th Avenue, once listed in Ripley's as the shortest main street in America, offers several very unique galleries and boutiques, including Mountcastle International Trading, Co., Ltd. on the ground floor of the Mountcastle building. The Merry Pier is at the east end of our block offering fishing, tackle and bait, wave-runners, sunset cruises, deep sea fishing trips, and a great boat shuttle to Shell Island. Downtown St. Petersburg is just 15 minutes away. Restaurants, galleries, boutiques, and shops on our block are listed below.

Amenities include:
Giant Jacuzzi
Jasmine Tropical Garden
Computer with cable and wireless internet hub
Large washer and dryer,
Large kitchen and three full sized refrigerators
Ceiling fans
Deck furniture
Gas grill
Cable TV
Private parking for three cars, a must at the beach!!

Our idea of a great day: Start with some time at dawn walking on the beach, watching the light change and smelling the sea. A little later return to 8th Avenue to the quaint Seahorse Restaurant -just a few steps from Traders' Haven at the Intracoastal end of our block, (or to the Hurricane or the Beach Concession, also on our block) for breakfast ... morning paper, seagulls screaming, and salt air - cannot be beat!! Fishing on the pier or a lazy day on the beach is always a delight. A long soak in the jacuzzi-spa and an afternoon nap in the shade in the garden is truly relaxing. Walking back to the beach for another fabulous sunset is a local tradition.
