About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

This beautifully remodeled 2 bedroom, 1 bath single-family home is located just off East Bay Drive and Highland Avenue. It sits in a small, quaint neighborhood adjacent to Highland Recreation Complex and the woodland reserve community with trails and a beautiful little lake with canopied live oak trees and all sorts of waterfowl. Perfect for jogging/walking/exercise.

The comfortable home features a custom kitchen and bath, tile and wood-laminate flooring with carpeted bedrooms, full size washer and dryer, WiFi, kitchen with all the gadgets you have at home, plus it's impeccably clean throughout. There is a covered patio in the front and back of the home - In the back is a small dining/cafe table where you can enjoy your morning coffee or a romantic dinner for two.

The Highland Recreation Complex is just a short walk away, offering programs, classes and events for nearly every interest and age. The facility features a 3-story indoor playground, 1/13 mile indoor walking track, gymnasium, indoor fitness center, as well as an outdoor workout park, tennis courts, family friendly water park with two multipurpose pools and more. Note: The pool is only open certain months of the year.

Also nearby is Largo Central Park. A beautiful, 70-acre park located in the heart of Largo, just a short bicycle ride away, or hop in the car and be there in minutes. Its rolling grounds, fountains and landmark clock tower have set it apart as one of the finest parks in the county. Rainbow Rotary Playground is one of the only playgrounds in the Bay area completely accessible to disabled users. It also has a new workout area, Fit Zone. The outdoor Fit Zone has many workout stations that can be found at a traditional gym.

Feel safe and secure in this little 2-street neighborhood not far from Largo Police Department, surrounded by friendly neighbors. We even had a past guest love the neighborhood so much, she purchased her own home in the adjoining subdivision.

About Ms Shawn Romano

Originally from Largo Florida, I am now a Tennessee resident. I still work for a company located in St. Petersburg Florida as a remote employee. Providing me with opportunity to travel back home to Florida for office visits and time with long-time friends and family too.

Ms Shawn Romano purchased this house in 1999

Why Ms Shawn Romano chose Largo

My mother and I purchased this little home in 1999 from her late aunt. Mom's aunt loved this home so much that she wanted to keep it in the family. We rented it out long term for several years, but decided it was a perfect 2nd home for myself and my husband to stay in when we visited family in Florida or when I have to take those trips into the office. So we completely remodeled it a few years back and share it with other vacationers throughout parts of the year.

With awesomely friendly neighbors and close to Largo Police Department, you can feel right at home and safe. We even had a past guest love the neighborhood so much, she purchased her own home in the adjoining subdivision.

What makes this house unique

Proximity to beaches, Highland Recreation Complex, Largo Central Park and Largo Police Department. Easy access to Tampa.

House rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this remodeled house for 2 months. The walking trail was an added bonus just down the street. Very residential area with quiet streets but plan on driving to most restaurants or shopping areas, although just a short drive away. House was immaculate and pictures were accurate. Beds comfortable and house very well equipped. We would have rented again but already booked for next year 😏

We found this property to be clean and well maintained. The pictures are exactly as the property looks. It is a very comfortable home, about 15 minutes from the Gulf. Nice park with walking trail within 1/2 block as well as close to grocery stores and restaurants. We would definitely rent this unit in the future.

St. Petersburg

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 weeks (originally was supposed to be 4 but the closing of our house got pushed and thankfully we were able to extend!). It was clean and comfortable. Loved the renovated kitchen (although a dishwasher would've been nice ;) The neighborhood was quiet and within a 2 minute walk to a beautiful lake with walking path and nearby playground. Our family of 3 was really glad to have found this house and had no problems with the property our entire stay. I recommend this place strongly to anyone in our situation who needs a rental before purchasing a house, or to check out the area, or if you want to stay close to Clearwater beaches but away from the tourists :) 15 min from the beach, 25 min to St. Pete, 45 min to downtown Tampa.
