About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Our home -- with it's fabulous location, modern conveniences and rustic charm -- is unmatched from others on St Pete Beach. We are walking distance to hotels, restaurants and shopping, while nestled less than 30-seconds from the sand and surf.
Even the locals are charmed when they walk into the home. Built on Jan. 12, 1933 with tongue-in-groove wood floors, walls and ceilings, the home captures the nostalgia of beach living with all the upgrades of today's comforts.
Come to our home and experience 7 miles of public beach to explore. Hunt for sea shells, enjoy a leisurely swim, fish if you feel like it. Walk out the front door and see brilliant sunrises to your left, spectacular sunsets to your right. You’ll find the perfect combination of sand, sea and sky at this destination.
We've also found our home to be perfect for parents and family members of a wedding party that want a home base to help coordinate but able to relax between festivities, this is your place! The home is a quiet retreat so we do not allow parties or large gatherings at the property. We even had folks come back to stay for their anniversary!
This two-story beach house includes 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths with a large deck and gas grill for cookouts under the night sky. The master bedroom on the second floor has a private balcony for two and the back garden has a second patio area suitable for sunbathing or just relaxing. And talk to us if you are interested in pool access.
For guests that may need to work while they're away, we have an in-home office that includes a phone/printer/scanner/copier and high speed Wi-Fi. Please contact us if you need more information as we offer additional work-from-home capabilities.
Easy stroll to Dolphin Village for groceries or to drop in to a CVS drugstore. Across the street is a popular pancake house, a well-known dinner spot and a liquor store .
The beach also has free transportation services and if you want to explore, a trolley stop is few steps from our front door to take you wherever you want to go.
The home has been in our family for over 60 years and holds a special place in our hearts. We still live on the beach and make sure this charmer is kept in excellent condition for our guests' enjoyment.

This is one of my favorite places to go when I want a change of pace. It's a great place to walk, rollerblade, bicycle, kayak, windsurf or kiteboard. I strongly encourage everyone to make the most of this park, you can read more about it here: http://www.pinellascounty.org/park/05_ft_desoto.htm...MoreCollapse
I know that most of our guests come here for the beach, but if you feel inclined to visit some of the local cultural spots, this is a good place to start. The world famous Salvador Dali Museum is located here - their new museum location is opening January 2011. Dale Chihuly has a fantastic glass artwork exhibit at the Morean Art Center downtown. Downtown also has the Museum of Fine Arts, the Mahaffey Theatre, the American Stage Theatre Company and many other worthwhile facilities. For a small city, the downtown is actually quite fun and we've really been happy with the number of new and interesting restaurants that have popped up....MoreCollapse

About the owner: I am a beach girl in my heart, love swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, walks on the beach, fantastic sunsets, and the sand between my toes. This home has been in our family for over 60 years and we are delighted to share it with our guests. We think you'll find it as special as we do.
Why the Owner Chose Saint Pete Beach, FL, USA:
It's one-of-a-kind home! It offers a quiet retreat moments from a pristine beach and nestled among all the great attractions - giving you the best of both worlds. It is a true beach home with all the comforts of today's living. Spend your day with sand in your toes or read a book on the back deck after a morning swim. In the evening, take a stroll to the local restaurant for dinner and ice cream. But don't miss the sunset! They are spectacular and no one is the same!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a well-cared for and loved home that has been in our family for more than 60-years. We want you to have that home away from home feeling when you stay here. We are close to everything so enjoy walking everywhere you need to go. And given our great location, we have many families stay with us as a retreat from all the wedding activity at the hotel; it's great for those looking to relax throughout all the celebrations!
