Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Getaway to one of the last beach side homes in the resort district and enjoy a magical, sun-filled Florida vacation!

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.

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.

The Owner purchased this house in 1951

Why The Owner chose Florida Central West

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!

What makes this house unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Roses are red, beach life is great. Forget all your worries, erase your full slate. This beach house is perfect, it has lots of charm. Inside you'll feel safe, protected from harm. Check out the beaches, both near and afar. Take home some sand - fill up a jar. Use the grill once, or maybe twice. Shrimp on the barbie - it's really quite nice! Walk to the corner - Freakie Tiki is there. You'll find some cool stuff, and much you can wear. Sleep in till noon, or get up at dawn. Either way after sunset, you'll start to yawn. This place was perfect for these four pals. Come with your buddies - the best for us gals! Debbie the owner loves this place best. Living here's easy, and leaving's a test. Look for the cat - she often comes round. Don't worry about noises - the cat makes the sound. Thank you for sharing a home filled with love. We used all the corners like a hand fits a glove. We plan to return, and sit in the sun. Sadly for us, our week is now done.

Cozy beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at the beach house and as always we found it spotless and well equipped. One trip to the grocery store and you're set to enjoy the beach or discover many of the local activities. The location is ideal as the highways are very easy to connect to. One of our favorite things to do in the early morning is to walk to Pass A Grill for a coffee. It's a 45 min walk there but well worth it as this beach is pristine and shell hunting is a must along the way. The owners have provided a book that takes the guess work out of where to eat and hot spots to discover. We highly recommend Agave a Mexican restaurant only 2 mins away by car and very reasonable prices. Don't leave the beach without booking a sunset sail that leaves from the Publixs grocery store mall. Captain Dan and his crew ensure that the evening will be memorable and you can bring a bottle of wine along for the ride. When you're exhausted from all the adventures you can always head back to the beach house for a BBQ on the Webber grill and relax in the fully equiped family room and watch a movie. The owners are very accommodating, you'll want to return again every year.

Our stay at Deborah's beach house

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beach house. Everything we needed was there. Cooking utensils and beach chairs with umbrella. Only a minute walk to the beach. Choose this one and you can't go wrong. So glad we did! Deborah met us at the house when we arrived and was so pleasant to work with. We will be back!

Relaxing Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We rented Deb's house for a week and loved everything about it! It's three houses away from the beach so it was convenient for us to come back to the house whenever we wanted to. My favorite thing about the house is the little backyard oasis where we spent every morning and grilled many nights out there. Deb provides everything: beach chairs, beach towels, shower towels, clean sheets, etc... so this is really your home away from home for the week. First time in St. Petes and would definitely go back !!
