About the property

3 bed 2 bath home with pool and FP, sleeps 6 nr beaches, trail and golf!

Enjoy your Florida vacation in this private, tropical paradise with in-ground pool. Lounge by the pool surrounded by lush plantings, palms and flowers. A forever wild nature preserve borders the property, adding more privacy and great bird-watching too! The stylish, comfortable, and welcoming home on a very high end cul de sac has been recently renovated and tastefully furnished. There are three levels of new decking, including a widow's walk with peek-a-boo views of the gulf - perfect for sunset gatherings! Take an easy stroll to the Crystal Beach waterfront, beach and pier where everyone gathers for sunsets. The nearby Pinellas Trail is a favorite for jogging, biking and rollerblading. The area has a quaint Key West charm with shell paths and live oaks, and is a delightful place to stroll. This stunning home is located just minutes from golfing and a 10 minute drive to some of the best beaches and parks in the world, as well as many exciting dining options.

The open floor plan home, with cathedral ceilings, hardwood and terracotta floors, skylights and expansive sliders onto the deck, is bright, airy and modern with plenty of room for everyone to relax. The home is decorated with original paintings and drawings by the owner's very artistic family. The huge dining table can easily seat 12. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils, spices and teas, and there’s a stainless steel gas grill on the deck. A sunny, windowed breakfast room adjoins the kitchen. Guests always say the pictures don't do it justice!

The main bedroom has a queen size bed with gel-topped mattress, and shares a newly renovated bathroom with the second bedroom which has a double bed. Third bedroom has a pull-out sofa and en-suite bath. Home comes complete with hairdryers, 100% cotton bed linens, soaps and towels. There’s central air and ceiling fans for comfort, and flat screen TVs with basic cable in living room and main bedroom. There’s even a fireplace for those cool nights.

Minimum one week stay. If you have any questions please contact us, and we’ll be happy to help!

About Lisa Halter

We are both graphic designers and involved in real estate. We live in Crystal Beach and love the area for all it has to offer. We like to boat, and take walks in the area's beautiful parks. Wall Springs and Hammock Park are especially beautiful. We also love to dine on the water at Ozona Blue in Ozona, or Captain Jacks in Tarpon Springs. We are originally from the Woodstock NY area and came here to escape the cold!

Lisa Halter purchased this house in 2010

Why Lisa Halter chose Point Seaside

We bought this property because we love the area. It has such an old Florida feeling, unlike many other areas we looked at. We wanted to be near the water, and my mom who lives here too!

What makes this house unique

The moment we saw this home we fell in love with it. It's unusual to find a place with hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings and a feeling of privacy. It backs onto a 400 acre preserve, so no one will ever build behind us. The roof deck overlooking the gulf really charmed us too!

This home is quiet, with a private feeling that's unusual in Florida. It's surrounded by lush foliage and backs up to a nature preserve. It's amazing to watch flamingos and Pelicans osprey and herons fly overhead! Please note: This is a Florida 'stilt home,' meaning that the living area is on the second floor. The living area is accessed by outdoor stairs in the front and back. This home and pool area is NOT childproofed, so kids really need to be accompanied outdoors at all times. There is a fence directly around the pool, but some open areas with no gates.

Relaxing getaway - just what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful week+ stay March 2016. We loved the comfort and decor of the open concept house and beautiful setting of the backyard/pool area. We spent every day in the heated pool and enjoyed the quiet, tranquil atmosphere of the neighborhood.

Shopping and destinations are easy drives, and Lisa was super helpful in making the reservation. I highly recommend and will be back.

A very inviting, airy, bright & comfortable home! Attractively furnished with wonderful original art

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was most comfortable and enjoyable. We loved the beautiful heated pool and used both the upper and lower deck spaces. There is a great feeling of privacy and solitude, yet we were close to shopping and restaurants. Really ideal. And right across the street is the Gulf of Mexico. All in all we'd highly recommend the Halter property to those who value comfort, privacy and convenience.

Stunning home.

  • 5 of 5

We had two families staying in this home. The pictures do not give it enough justice to the size and overall beauty of this home. The neighbourhood is beautiful. You are close to all grocery stores and restaurants. We can't wait to stay here again. Lisa is available for all your needs.

Car: recommended

This stunning home is located just minutes from golfing and beaches, as well as many exciting dining options. Located near the Pinellas Rail Trail for cycling, walking and rollerblading. Honeymoon Island is nearby, with a ferry to Caladesi Island-voted US best beach in 2008! Great restaurants in Palm Harbor, Dunedin and Tarpon Springs. Crystal Beach is a quaint seaside community with shell paths and a Key West feel.
