About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 8

Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, just a short walk from the historic Pass-a-Grille beach community. Restaurants, galleries, outdoor markets, boutiques, fishing piers, and a world class beach are just minutes away. Stop by local Shaner's market for their famous grouper sandwich and Sea Critters Cafe for a margarita that can't be beat.

The updated, single level, 2500 square foot open floor plan lends itself to comfortable, casual entertaining, or seating for up to six in the formal dining room. All furnishings and decor are new as of April 2014. Central air conditioning and ceiling fans, Duet washer and dryer, weekly pool, lawn and trash service assures you a comfortable and convenient vacation. We provide a pack-n-play collapsible crib, wooden high chair, and children toys and books for your convenience.

The kitchen, with its maple cabinets, granite surfaces, and large cooking island is well appointed with everything you need to settle in and prepare family meals, including a breakfast bar. The large, open living space accentuates the waterfront location and pool/spa area via a wall of windows and French doors. Enjoy movies, games and a 55' flat screen television and comfortable modular sectional seating for the whole family to relax in.

The master bedroom offers a California king, memory foam bed, 32' LCD flat screen television, and a spectacular view of the pool and waterfront from private French doors.

Adjacent to the master bedroom is the office, fully equipped with hi-speed WI-fi internet, HP printer/copier/fax, and an executive hardwood desk to accommodate your mobile office needs. A day bed with trundle allows for two additional sleeping options in this room. The master bath features travertine tile and custom glass lisetto, as well as a Kohler toilet and new fixtures. The split floor plan features two additional rooms on the opposite end of the home.

The second bedroom features a brand new, pillow top king bed with a 32' flatscreen and large closet, and a queen bed in the third bedroom, also outfitted with a large closet. The second bathroom offers a combination tub/shower configuration, with ample cabinet space for everyone's toiletries.

After a day at the beach, relax in your private back yard and prepare a meal on your gas grill, or take a dip in the newly refinished Diamondbrite pool and spa (heated upon request for an additional fee), and enjoy the beautiful landscaping surrounding the Kooltech deck.

The new dock is equipped with power and led lights for convenient night fishing, as well as tie poles for your boat. Pods of dolphins and a parade of yachts are a regular occurrence off the dock, which offers easy access to the gulf, just around the corner. Mature, lush, tropical landscaping envelopes the property, with the sweet scents of jasmine and plumeria and magnificent pineapple and coconut palms to offer you shade throughout the day.

Just around the corner is a quiet, shady park that offers a fenced playground, tennis and basketball courts, and a dog park. Continue on down the street on a pleasant ten minute stroll to the historic Florida beach community of Pass-a-Grille. It's charming and elegant homes, storefront businesses, sailing and ferry charters, and outdoor markets will leave you wishing you had more time to take it all in!

About Jessica Kramer and David Johnson

We are a family from Minnesota that appreciates the opportunity to travel with our family to a comfortable home that we can all make memories at. I am actively involved in a commercial real estate business in Minnesota and having an idle property in Florida, that others could be enjoying, makes no sense to me. We have done our best to make our new home in Florida a welcoming, tropical paradise for your family to enjoy, too!

Jessica Kramer and David Johnson purchased this house in 2014

Why Jessica Kramer and David Johnson chose St. Pete Beach

We have been visiting the Gulf beaches since we were children, and enjoy sharing this part of the world with our children and their families as well. We decided to buy a second home here when we realized that Pass-a-Grille beach was our favorite place to visit with our friends and family and want to share all that this beautiful part of Florida has to offer with others, too! From the cosmopolitan offerings of theater, opera, music and art to world class cuisine and shopping, old world Florida charm and pristine beaches, St. Petersburg has something for everyone!

What makes this house unique

Our waterfront home offers benefits that no other rental home in the area does. Private dock, heated pool, accommodations for 8, all new furnishings and mattresses, high quality linens, modern decor and easy beach access. This home has it all!
