Location, location, location!
Walkable to EVERYTHING! Morning waterfront walks and parks, coffee shop next door, Weekend downtown festivals, every great restaurant!
Easy in/out of this 4-Bdrm waterfront pool home, and beats the experience in all the neighboring multi-million dollar high-rises (my opinion)
It's so refreshing to not have to get into the car all weekend long. The friendly neighbors in this community are always a delight. We've met so many interesting people in our time here.
We are through the first week of a one month stay and really love this house. First of all, everything works! We have had no trouble with any feature, fixture or appliance, save a couple of burned out light bulbs. There is plenty of room (more than we need, but we are expecting a visitor for one week) and the house is bright, modern and clean.
The yards are both tightly fenced, so we have no worries leaving the dogs on their own if we come in for a refreshment or to make a meal.
The grounds are very well maintained by a local company -- perfectly groomed lawns and shrubs make you feel like you are in a villa at a resort -- expect there is no one to bring fresh ice on command! Having a heated pool has been good, since the weather has cooled down since we arrived. The yard is peaceful and there is very little activity on the canal, so extremely private. Grocery shopping, pizza joints and other local amenities are fairly close, as is the downtown which we have visited several times for movies, the Saturday Market and just to walk the dogs along the bay front. There is public tennis at the park east of the pier. Not having a telephone is a bit of a problem, but since we knew it in advance, we bought a TracFone when we got into the USA and are using that as our everyday telephone. My wife made all the arrangements with the owners and she found them easy to get along with and very helpful with information, access to the house when we first arrived and last minute details. We still have 3 weeks t go, but I expect that we will remain totally satisfied. I would recommend this to anyone with pets or children who want a good location, pleasant property and good renting experience.
Recommended for: Families with teenagers, people with disabilities, sightseeing, age 55+, romantic getaway, families with young children, girls getaway, pet owners.

Loved our time in St. Pete. The house had everything we needed and was very close to downtown, groceries and restaurants. Loved the outdoor space and watching all the birds. The only downside was that the kayaks and paddle boards weren't able to be put into the water, but he owner is working on a lift so that should be resolved.
We stayed in the home foe a week during the beginning of May. Dennis the owner was a pleasure to deal with and was very helpful. We stayed in the home with out 3 year old Son and 6 month old daughter. This home has everything you need and the kid friendliness was just outstanding. Very clean and well maintained. Thank you
We just got back from a wonderful weeks vacation in Dennis and Suzie's Beautiful house.
Everything from the arrival was perfect and the Pool and Deck area was perfect for our needs.
The interior of the house was very well done and the beds were super comfortable.
We loved the Master bedroom bed as it was so comfortable, we slept later then usual each day because we didn't want to get out of it.
Dennis and Suzie were a true pleasure to work with and made sure our every need was met.
If your looking for a very nice house with Great Pool and Deck and beautiful interior then look no further.
We will be back next year.
Thank you Dennis and Suzie for all you have done to make our vacation special.
Let me say what a pleasure it was working with Dennis in regards to our emails for booking and throughout our stay. When we arrived at the home it was very easy to find and in a great location. The house had a wonderful layout with two bedrooms on one side of the house and two bedrooms on the other side. The living space was very inviting and everything was very tastefully decorated. The owners even added the extra touches of toilet paper, hand soap, detergent, kleenex, etc. That definitely makes a difference! The pool was great and nice and warm. It was deeper than we expected, guessing 7 feet maybe. Which was so nice having bigger kids. They were in the pool non-stop. He provided kayaks and paddle boards and there was plenty of outdoor seating. Our son is an avid fisherman......plenty of fish were caught while we were there from catfish, red drum, black drum, sheephead and even a sting ray! Definitely a hit for our son! It was nice to come home from the hustle and bustle of busy beaches, restaurants, etc to a nice quiet place to call home, even just for a week. We would definitely stay again! Highly recommend! Thank you Dennis and Suzanne!
First off, it was a pleasure communicating with Dennis and Suzie about the property. They were responsive when the Mr. Coffee didn't work and stopped by with a new Keurig machine the same day as a replacement! The home itself has a nice open/spacious floorplan which our family of 7 really enjoyed. The pool in the back was a hit and the view into the canal from the dock was very nice. Everyone seemed very comfortable in their beds and the bedrooms all had plenty of space. It just seemed like all the square footage in this house was put to good use from the large communal areas to the four bedrooms. The neighborhood was quaint and in a nice area with easy access to the supermarket and 4th street. It's a convenient location for splitting time between beaches, downtown St. Pete, and Tampa.
Dennis and Susie have a great home and were pleasant and approachable. Thanks! We had a minor issue with the pool heater and it was fixed the next day. The home was very nice and comfortable. We stayed with our family of six and two dogs. All of us enjoyed the excursions through the canals on the SUP's and kayaks. Enjoyed a lot of time in the backyard, pool and on the dock. We had a vehicle and traveled 20 -30 minutes to many nice beaches, worth the extra travel to go to Clearwater beach. The home amenities were nice and the beds were comfy. We would stay again!
We live locally, so we can offer personal recommendations or experience for just about anything you would need. Just let us know!
