About the Property
3 Bdrm 2 Bath, sleeps 6 1595 Sq. Ft home with pool steps to Tampa Bay
Enjoy your next Florida family vacation at ‘Il Dolce Far Niente’ (The Sweetness of Doing Nothing) in our beautiful rental home in lovely Bahama Shores in St. Petersburg, Florida. Watch beautiful sunrises less than a two minute walk away, in the quiet neighbourhood that was the location for the movie ‘Cocoon’. From the oak lined brick boulevard, past the huge, incredible banyan trees to the waterfront park, this small, quiet community on Tampa Bay offers a wonderful getaway location for your family.
Relax on the patio and in the pool in or drive 8 miles to the sun and sands of St. Pete Beach, just one of the beautiful beaches in the area. 12 miles away, experience nature and quiet beaches at Fort DeSoto Park, ‘Travelers’ Choice 2013 Winner’ for beaches. Drive 5 miles to downtown St. Petersburg for dining, night life and sightseeing at museums and galleries including the incredible Dali Museum and Chihuly blown glass exhibit. And in March, experience the roar of the engines through the downtown streets during the St. Petersburg Grand Prix. In under an hour’s drive, you will find yourself in Tampa, Bradenton and Sarasota where you can enjoy shopping, dining, culture and more beaches!
Retire or relax in the nautical themed master suite with a king bed, full ensuite bath and large walk-in closet. On the other side of the living area are 2 more bedrooms separated by another full bathroom. One features a tropical decor with a queen bed while the other has an ocean decor with twin beds, which can be converted to another king, if requested. Each bedroom features a ceiling fan, new flat screen television with cable and DVD player and duvets in fresh, clean covers for every guest! All bedrooms are tastefully decorated in coastal themes and furnished with lovely mid-century furnishings. New modern cabinets and lighting accent both bathrooms. All linens, towels and beach towels are here.
Enjoy movie night on sleek leather furniture in the living room, in front of a 55” Smart TV with Blu-ray, cable with DVR, HBO and Netflix. Keep in touch with wireless internet and a phone with free long distance and calls to Canada. Prepare meals in the brand new, bright, fully equipped modern kitchen overlooking the pool, with stunning grey cabinets, colourful pendant lights and granite countertops. Grab a quick bite or serve at the kitchen peninsula. Dine at the gorgeous mid-century Danish teak table that comfortably seats at least 6. Eat breakfast, play games, do puzzles or catch up on work (if you must!) in the game room.
Outside, enjoy your morning coffee on the front patio by the garden, under large Live Oak trees. Go for a walk or bike ride in this quiet family neighbourhood and see beautiful native birds, geckos and other wildlife enjoying the day as well. Two patio doors lead to the back patio in the large fenced private yard. Relax by the screen enclosed inground pool on comfortable lounge furniture or grill outside and dine at the outdoor table for 6. No worries if it’s raining – you’ll be protected from rain or sun under the overhang, cooled by lighted fans. Inside the double car garage you’ll find a washer and dryer and if you want to bring your RV or boat there is a large, secure parking area inside the fence. Launch your boat at any of several public areas nearby and enjoy a day in the Gulf fishing, relaxing or looking for dolphins! The nearby activities available are endless; fishing, golf, sporting events and more. Grocery stores, pharmacies and gas are minutes away.
Then, if you are tired from all this activity come back to your ‘home away from home’, and enjoy ‘Il Dolce Far Niente’!

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We (Tom & Janna) moved from the Toronto area in Canada to New Jersey in 1990, where we raised our family. In 2011 we purchased our first home in St. Petersburg where we spend our winters, returning to New Jersey in the summer to spend time with our kids and 6 grandchildren. Our visitors were so impressed with this area of St. Petersburg we wanted to provide a location for others to enjoy. We have always enjoyed home renovation and decor so in 2013 we decided to create a home here with quality and style and look forward to meeting new visitors.
Why the Owner Chose Bahama Shores, Saint Petersburg, FL, USA:
We wanted a pool home with good bones, in a great neighbourhood, in need of a facelift, that would lend itself to a Mid-Century modern feeling and decor. We we lucky enough to have the opportunity to purchase in beautiful Bahama Shores, a very lovely family area close to the water. Quiet and private but close to fun, food and activities! It's 5 minutes from our home for convenience of care of home and guests.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Divided floor plan with Master bedroom separated from other bedrooms. Pocket doors allow privacy and quiet or open flow. The back patio seating area is covered, with lighted fans. Love it for keeping cool on sunny days or enjoy the outside even in the rain! Nice sized yard with lots of parking and separate pad at side of house, with electrical hookup, for RV or boat.
