About Sarah St. Clair

I grew up in a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and now live in Northern Virginia. I have this house in Florida as a rental property until I can retire and move there full-time!

Sarah St. Clair purchased this house in 2013

Why Sarah St. Clair chose Sunset Beach

I bought this house in August 2013 because it is right beside my brother and sister-in-law that own The Jungle House next door! It's a great little get away from the hustle and bustle of life here in the nation's capital. It's great to be near family and in such an inviting area with great neighbors overall! I love it here!

What makes this house unique

The character of this house is what drove me to it. The living room is charming and quaint - the house has great personality and is one of the originals on the island! It's famous for it's blue color...everyone refers to it as "that blue house."

Nana & Papa's Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Sarah's little paradise is fantastic! The house was spotless and it is nicely furnished, and it has such a warm, welcoming feeling. Very comfortable and all the conveniences one could need. The neighborhood is quite, and yes, just a short walk (maybe about one block) to the beautiful Sunset Beach. Very convenient location. Families with young children and people with disabilities should note the stairs, but there is a bedroom and bath downstairs. I hesitate to say so many nice things, could create a problem for available dates for us next year. Property Manager very pleasant, and everything was as promised. Nevertheless, I will say it again,the 'blue house' was great, even the toilet paper was extra, extra soft!

This house is so charming !!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great home! I stayed for two weeks over the summer and loved every minute. It's clear the owner loves the home as evidenced by the homey feeling, beautiful furniture/features, and everything one would need in a home away from home. Also love the fact that there are bedrooms on both the main and upper level. There is a cute backyard with a brand new deck for outdoor dining. The location is awesome with such a short walk to the beach and the sunsets are amazing! The pictures accurately represent the property and the owner was great to work with. I plan on returning in the spring :0)

Sunset Beach at Treasure Island
Car: recommended

Sunset Beach is surrounded by lots to do! Mixed into Treasure Island, St Petersburg and St Pete Beach offers lots of variety and great restaurants. It's also an easy drive to other scenic locations if you want to take a day trip (e.g. Sarasota, Long Boat Key, Clearwater, etc.)
