It looks directly at the Skyway Bridge, Egmont Key and Downtown St. Petersburg- you will not find a more breathtaking view anywhere on the island. The home has the charm of a New England style beach cottage both inside and out. Wainscoting, chair rails, crown molding and coffered ceilings add that outstanding finishing touch throughout the house.
There are two porches facing the water in which to sit and enjoy the views. Your private beach is only a few steps from the back of the property. There is a very unique enclosed, private porch off the back that has louvered shutters as to continuously allow the cool ocean breezes to flow through. The water is calm, perfect for swimming and fishing. The garage is oversized, plenty of room for vehicles. There are bikes, beach chairs, towels and toys provided. Rocking chairs on both balconies and a porch swing facing the water on the ground level.

The kitchen has high quality tiles, fixtures and appliances and is fully stocked with all cookware and dinnerware. There are two bedrooms on the main level, one with a queen bed and the other with a twin and a bunk bed. The laundry/beach room is over-sized with a full size shower and direct access from the porch so as to allow for showing after coming right up from the beach.
