Jeri & George grew up in New England, migrated to St. Louis and raised their two sons and daughter between the banks of the Mississippi River - 'simply messing with boats.' They sail their boat Ex Libris on the Mississippi and spend summers on Narragansett Bay. Jeri writes about her love of the sea in her blog . These owners love casual living, great food and spectacular sunsets. They are avid sailors who comfortable on a beach, and love sharing the sea and surf at the Nest with family, friends, and renters.
This unit of The Nest was originally owned by Jeri's Uncle - it has been in the family since it was built. A while back it was renovated from a 2 bedroom to a 1 bedroom in order to create an open floor plan that allows light and sea breezes free access. The bedroom is large enough to accommodate a twin pullout comfortable chair that provides privacy from the main living area - and affords a quiet space for reading and/or TV watching. Our grown children and grandchildren love spending their special vacations at the Nest. It's about 2 hours from Harry Potter/Disney, an hour from Busch Gardens, 35 minutes from the Rays baseball team, and 15 minutes from Winter the Dolphin in Clearwater.
Jeri Levesque purchased this condo in 2006
Unit #4 at the Nest is a place to balance the lunacy of a hectic workplace with your inner sea during a tropical vacation on the beach. Our space was redesigned for a couple or smaller families to relax and play on the beach. The unit is elegant in it's simplicity and proximity to the airport, restaurants, grocery stores, Trolley line all the way to Clearwater Beach for $1.50 or St. Petersburg Beach. We have private parking, a fresh green lawn and privacy from sea oats and sand dunes. Did we mention four short steps down to the beach from our large well appointed deck (shared with other relaxed guests), a nice Weber grill and of course, incredible sunsets?

This is my second time staying at this beautiful gem this year. I came back this time because it was a piece of paradise the first time. It doesn't disappoint!
The sunsets are gorgeous here. The water, beach, restaurants, convenience are all spectacular. The condo is clean and cozy with all you could possibly need. The owner is very accommodating and I thank her for sharing and caring that her guests are taken care of. Again, I will be back!
Thank you, Jeri!
My Wife and I have stayed at the Nest twice already and hope to do so again this Year (2016).
What you need to appreciate is through that path, shown in the first photo,
lays more beautiful beach than you could possibly want to walk - at least 4 miles in either direction.
Meanwhile within walking distance is a good pizza place and Walgreens, coffee and a burrito place
more than enough for your daily needs
A short drive away two good sized Safeway stores
There's not much to add to the many photos
The Nest is very spacious having at one time been two bedrooms(?)
Further there's more TV channels known to Man, condiments and spices of every description
and lots of stuff to do, even a library of 50 or so books
Long story short The Nest has it all
Just add food and beverages and enjoy
Have stayed at Privacy on the Beach for two years now and we would not go any where else. Great location, great views, great owners, looking forward for my visit again this year. It may be only one bed room but has plenty of space for the whole family. With in walking distance to many local restaurants. You can watch the sunrise from the kitchen window, relax on the beach through out the day, and have a drink watching the sunset on the balcony at night. Love this place
I recently stayed a week at this beautiful condo. The owners are extremely friendly with easy instructions to access to their piece of paradise. The condo has EVERYTHING you could possibly need with close proximity to many local restaurants- walking distance. No need to even move your car if you choose to. The view from the porch and the sunsets are incredible!
The beach is amazing and it's all literally out your back door!
Thank you Jeri for sharing your paradise I truly enjoyed every second!
Many memories made with my son.
We will be back!
This is a great vacation home situated literally right on the beach. The home is well kept, has warm character, and nice views. The beach is gorgeous, with powder white sand, and small steady waves. Very quiet and family oriented. The town itself is relaxing, clean, and safe. One minor thing to note is that the main bedroom is facing the road, which is one block away, so if you like to sleep with the windows open, you'll hear cars and activity later at night and early AM. Both of us were woken up a few times every night. However, if you close the windows and use AC, this may not be a problem. Now on to my three stars. I don't like giving poor reviews for anything, and I rarely do, but the owner of the downstairs unit is a problem. She took over the common space and was constantly stopping us to ask questions about our whereabouts. It was awkward at first, and then got to the point of being comical. So, after a few days we stopped using the common space, and just used the house and beach to avoid her. It's a real shame because everything else about our stay was perfect and the owner of our floor was very nice, and gave us a good deal up front. Maybe you'll luck out when you book and you won't have to deal with the business downstairs, but I'm sorry to say we won't be returning.
The Nest was wonderful, we really enjoyed our stay.
The owners were also very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. The condo is in a great location with the beach only a few footsteps away. Unlike other places we stayed, the nest has a very warm and cosy appeal to it, making feel like your very own vacation place.
Will definitely be going back!
