Redington Beach is arguably one of the most sun-drenched beaches in America! That's because this amazing part of Florida sees sunlight 361 days out of the year. Put on your swimsuit and flipflops, walk out the front door and cross the street onto the beautiful white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. You will literally be from door to beach in just a few short minutes with beach access being a few houses to the north or south on Gulf Blvd. (The photo of our house from the beach will give you a feel for how close we are to the beach. Unfortunately a new home has since been built on the formerly empty lot. Nevertheless we still have a great view of the beach and, of course our proximity to the beach hasn't changed).
Our “Key West” style beach house sleeps up to 12 people VERY COMFORTABLY! The Second Level (Main Level) of the home has new beach wood floors and has recently been painted. New furniture and beach themed home décor throughout the home will engulf your senses throughout your beach vacation stay. Our Main floor has a fully stocked, modern kitchen with all the utensils, pots, pans and appliances any cook could ask for! The great room and dining area provide ample space for large gatherings of friends and family. A rock fireplace, 48” 1080P flat screen TV with 200w sound bar provides access to DirecTV, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other popular streaming services. Even the kids can play on the X Box Gaming System complete with 11 games and dual controls.
Follow the hallway to Bedroom #1, furnished with 2 bunk beds (sleeps 4). The ELEVATOR that provides comfortable access to both floors opens into this bedroom.
Continue down the main hallway to the fully tiled “Grand Bathroom” with 2 sinks, jetted tub, separate shower. Bedroom #2, with brand new carpet contains a new queen bed and 24” 1080P flat screen TV, also with satellite and streaming video access. Across the hallway is the master bedroom. With access to the grand bathroom the master bedroom is the perfect place to retreat and rest after an amazing day at the beach. Lay back and relax to your 32” 1080P flat screen TV. Watch what you want! After all, you have satellite and streaming TV access to thousands of viewing choices! Every room in the house includes Bluetooth portable stereo units so you can listen to your downloaded music with crisp clear sound at any level.
Two roll away twin beds add extra sleeping space for larger groups. The Main level will sleep up to 8 people.
The first floor unit is all tile and has been freshly painted and decorated. With a mini kitchen, complete with stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, appliance, cooking and eating utensils.
The elevator opens to a comfortably sized sitting room (elevator is currently out of operation). The Main Family Room is furnished with a large, brand new sectional couch and two 'X Twin' futons. This area is perfect for smaller gatherings. When it is time to go to bed, the gathering area comfortably sleeps 4 people. The family room is also furnished with a 40” 1080P flat screen TV with satellite and streaming access.
Directly off the Family room is a bedroom furnished with 4 twin beds (one is a pull out trundle twin). Two of the beds can be pushed together to make a cozy, comfortable queen bed. A bathroom with a shower finish off the 1st level living area. Of course all the rooms include top line Bluetooth sound systems and are decorated in cheerful beach décor!
The first floor level comfortably sleeps 8 people. Combining both levels a large family or group of 14 people can comfortably rest for the night.
Beach parking won’t be a problem here! No more costly parking fees while spending time at the beach! With a 2.5 car garage and a half circle driveway, 3-4 cars can park! By the way, the garage includes a full washer and dryer and it is stocked with all the gear you could possibly need for your Florida beach vacation! Beach toys, fishing gear, picnic coolers, beach blankets, umbrellas, beach chairs and more! 11 bicycles and 2 child scooters will make your local commute or touring an absolute pleasure! Winn Dixie Market and CVS pharmacy are only 2 blocks down the street, not to mention 'The Surf Shop', located about a block from the house and 'John's Pass', a favorite destination of locals and visitors which is less than two miles down Gulf Blvd. John's pass is home to 'Buba Gumps', 'Hooters', local pizzerias, beach bars, deep sea fishing tours, a marina and lots of shopping. 'John's Pass' is a 'must see' on your list of places to visit. If mini golf is your pleasure, you can walk one block south and enjoy yourself! We have you covered for your daily walk/bike to the beach. With luxurious, over sized beach towels provided for each guest, 6 beach chairs, 3 beach umbrellas, a rolling/backpack cooler, 4 mini coolers, loads of children’s beach toys and 7 body boards, your family has everything necessary for hours of fun and relaxation at our pristine beach! And… after a sandy day at the beach, shower off with our back yard shower!
A six burner BBQ grill and patio fire pit does the trick for restful nights in the back yard. The back porch is made up of beautiful shale and is surrounded by dozens of palm trees and fauna, natural to the Florida Gulf Coast. Want to check out the beach and the sunrise or sunset? You can do so from the oversized deck that can be accessed from either of 2 French Doors that open off the Main Level Great Room. Walk up another level to our “Crows Nest Deck”. Now you are above it all! To the east, your view is that of the Intracoastal Waterway known as Boca Ciega Bay. To the west is an unimpeded view of the crashing waves against the white sands of the Gulf of Mexico! Patio furniture on every deck and in the backyard finish off the accouterments that ensure your total comfort throughout your vacation stay.
Even though you have all you need for an amazing vacation and never need to leave the house, you are located in THE premiere location on Florida's Gulf Coast! The 'Suncoast Beach Trolley' and the 'Pinnelas Suncoast Transit Authority' buses pass the house every 15-30 minutes 365 days a year! The stop is located directly at the base of our driveway!

About Craig Gibson
My wife (Karen) and I love our beach vacations! We absolutely love the Gulf. For years we have traveled with our large family (8 children, 8 grandchildren and 3 lovely daughters in law) to various beaches for our family vacations. We absolutely love renting beach homes, particularly because nothing matches the feeling of hanging out in beach towns and communities. Last year, after returning from one of our annual Caribbean Cruises we drove down the Florida Gulf Coast looking for houses. We found this perfect home in Redington Beach and have furnished it, painted it, decorated it and prepared it so we could have a slice of the beach life we have always longed for. We currently live in Salt Lake City, Utah and we visit Florida whenever we can. We are happy to share this great home on the beach with you! It remains our sincere goal to provide our guests with a great vacation experience. We know how long and hard people save for their precious vacations and we truly want you to have a happy, positive memory of your stay. We will not promote or represent anything in our home that is not real and genuine. The complete satisfaction of our guests remains our priority and we will do everything within our power to provide you with one of your happiest, relaxing beach vacations ever.
Craig Gibson purchased this House in 2014
Why Craig Gibson chose Saint Petersburg
If you are an experienced beach vacationer like we are, you know how much it can cost to spend a night.. or a week... or more, in a beach house. Some of the homes in our neighborhood rent for $800 - $1,500/night! Not to mention the beach hotels along the coast between Clearwater and St. Pete Beach. These hotels rates range from $200-$500/night! Our particular beach house is located on Gulf Blvd. Same Blvd. as any other beach house in the region. The difference between our beach rental and the other beach rentals is that we live across the street from the beach. Even though our property is not on the beach itself, it still has all the views, all the feel, all the convenience and only steps away from the beach. The difference is that you, your friends and your family can stay an entire week in our beach house for just about what it would cost you to stay 1 or 2 nights with our neighbors across the street. We have an amazing location at an absolute fraction of the cost!! Why wouldn't we buy this property? Besides, with our 'Key West' architecture, we absolutely fell in love with this house the minute we drove past it last summer for the first time.
What makes this House unique
You are staying in a Beach House at a mere fraction of the cost of many other houses in the area. Not only do we have a great location with amazing beach and water views, this home has every amenity anybody vacationing at the beach could ever want. 10 bicycles, HD TV's in every room, patio furnishings, a brand new quartz glass patio heater, a 6 burner BBQ, shower in the yard, beach towels, boogie boards, beach toys, beach chairs and umbrellas, beach coolers.... We even have a washer and dryer for you! This is such a great place to stay. You won't be sorry for choosing to spend your vacation in this awesome beach home!!!

Great location !
The house was steps from the beach, very clean, and filled with everything we needed. The property manager was easy to get ahold of. Overall, it was a very nice experience.
Obvious care from the owners, great location, will rent again!
We were beyond impressed with the home. The property managers are beyond helpful and polite, not to mention the no holds barred approach to providing amenities and ensuring my family had everything we would need. The house has plenty of beds and is fully stocked with anything you could possibly need. We showed up with groceries and everything you would expect at home was waiting for us! The house is kept clean and the location is better than perfect! We would not have changed a thing. Thanks again to the property managers and owners who worked consistently to ensure my families memories.
It was our honor to be part of your family vacation. It is always our sincere desire to make our guests’ hard earned vacation a happy and memorable experience. We wish you and your family the very best always.

Nice house for the most part
The main part of the house, which is on the second floor, is very nice and nicely decorated. The first floor, which has to be entered from outside, is like a small apartment and doesn't have the same character as the second floor, plus two of the beds were uncomfortable. There is a deck on the third story which was rather rickety, so we didn't let the kids go up there. The house is located on a very busy, four-lane street that you have to cross to get to the beach. I had a question for the property manager so I called and left a message. After two days and no response, I texted him, and he got back to me. The next day I texted him with another question, and he never did return the call. Also, VRBO sent us an email previous to our stay, and the man they listed as the property manager said he hadn't been property manager for two years.
As always, we appreciate all Reviews from our guests. Reviews allow future guests to know they are booking a great property in addition to alerting us, as remote owners, to know where we can make improvements. It is always our sincere desire to provide ALL of our Guests with a 5 star experience. In response to your concerns: We are currently remodeling our elevator and we anticipate it will soon be fully operational so guests have multiple choices for upstairs and downstairs access. Sorry your boys weren't completely comfortable on our downstairs beds. We have replaced all our mattresses with brand new foam mattresses as of this weekend. As soon as we read of your concerns about the upper deck, we had our on call repair company visit the house to strengthen the stair and to replace the slat. Finally, we are sorry you weren't able to contact Charlie, our Property Manager. We checked into this because, as our past Guests have verified in our 90+ 4.98 Star Reviews, our Property Managers are loved and appreciated by everybody. They take their roles very seriously and they share the same vision that Karen and I as Owners maintain. That being that we want our Guests to have a 5 Star Vacation above all! We have rented our home to hundreds and hundreds of Guests for the past 4 years now and this is the first 3 star Review we have ever received. We realize we can't please everybody all of the time but this particular Review has impacted us seriously in a very personal way. We never want to hear of a Guest having anything short of a 5 Star Vacation therefore, we have looked into every comment provided in your review and we have made immediate repairs and adjustments to ensure this never happens again. Thanks for the feedback.

Great home...great location!
We loved our stay at the beach retreat! Enjoyed time with family indoors and out with plenty of useful household and beachy things! Very comfy queen beds, but our boys suggest that the twin bed mattresses be replaced soon. The separate living space in the downstairs area was a surprise plus for our older sons. We’ll definitely come back if we have the chance!
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thanks also for the suggestion to replace the twin bed mattresses. We have already purchased and replaced them! Let your boys know we appreciate their input and that they will have brand new twin mattresses next time you visit!
Thanks for choosing us!
Clean and spacious, just steps from the beach.
Clean and well maintained. We had no problems cooking and feeding our large crew, and enjoyed our stay.
