As described it is 1.3 miles from the Main entrance to the beach. WALK to the Quiet Beaches- Private wing of an appealing house in a newer subdivision. The unit has a kitchenette & additional half bath (pool bath), has a Private Entrance with a large High Fenced yard. Enjoy the Jacuzzi & Large pool or Sunbathe, all with privacy & no sharing. The pool, Jacuzzi, deck etc. are all yours. It is like your own pool. The Entrance has an electronic Lock for security & keyed door on the unit. No other guests. Unlike a Condo or an Apartment, there is no occupied area on any of the six sides of this rental. One unused area southside. It is similar to a duplex, not a shared residence. There are no shared areas. The pool, Jacuzzi, deck etc. are all yours with unhindered privacy
Want to Just Let Go, Escape and Relax, then this house would be ideal. Not a concrete, rectangular, filing cabinet accommodation like the other vacation units. Once you try it, you may never stay in a hotel again. Welcome to Corporate travelers on business like me, sick of hotels.
This is a home away from home without 'Honey to do chores' Relax with green grass, flowers & fresh water on both sides. Come down here and decompress and get revitalized. PRICED VERY LOW TO GET GUESTS & REVIEWS – NEW LISTING to the online rental websites.

Pots, Pans, cutlery, plates, glasses etc. and next to the room. Lighted Refrigerator is 2 doors.

Three sides of Kitchenette are Walled and the fourth open towards the pool. (Fun thing to do on a vacation & barbecuing). For the most part, guests are delighted they don't have to cook in or adjacent to a bed area and stink up the beds. Those are generally the poorer quality accommodations.

World drive in Orlando to Disney's Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Blizzard Beach, Animal Kingdom is 64 miles from Tampa & another 20+ to Bay Area beaches, where this house is. Most people staying here drive up morning & come back in the night. You could stay here instead of Orlando, for your entire visit & save a bundle

Minimum Rental: 6 nights (Even if you choose to stay less) FOR A SMALL DOG OR A YOUNG KID ASK. Extra charges $12 apply and for short stay guests beyond 2. Hospitality is an imperative requirement for all the rental websites I post, advertise or list on and none of them are cheap.
I am really at half price
NEW LISTING TO VRBO. I HAD A CONDO - VACATION RENTAL ON THE BEACH. TRY OUT THIS HOUSE AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY YOU DID. I have traveled to over 100 countries on work & vacation and stayed in the smallest of Pensiones & homes from Brazil to Australia & know what I takes to host. Many shared common rooms
Found many travelers DON’T LIKE FILING CABINET (BOX) TYPE REGULAR RECTANGULAR HOTELS & ROOMS & especially for stays over 3 or more days. Welcome to the fans who come down for the Major-League baseball training camps
The price for this place with all the amenities is much below any comparable accommodation around here. All guests so far have expressed that it is more than they expected and have referred their family & friends. Making a guest contented is a priority.
Must be 35 years or older, give or take a few years. A bylaw Requirement Ask before booking.
Rates do vary, usually only $10 to $18 according to demand. Weekend rates may apply for events. Fees, quite often none (Zero), vary by the number of occupant’s and holidays. Weekend rates apply only to guests for less than a month stay. I give discounts for longer stays & single occupation.
Please call if your reservation request is urgent & a requested property falls thru. IF YOU CALL & MISS ME, PLEASE LEAVE A MESSAGE (don't hang up) WITH THE EXACT DATES YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AVAILABILITY. MUST CALL IF YOUR STAY STARTS ANYTIME IN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS.
For those inquiring, the pool has logos of 2 dolphins, mother & baby turtles on the steps are mosaic tiles in the pool.
Try these two websites for activities
For the season, all payments are due at time of booking, (even if it is booked the end of previous season). The demand for rentals is overwhelming in winter, with little or none available. If a renter cancels I lose badly in the peak season and it could remain vacant. There are actually small margins in these rentals. The winter season is the only time we get in the black (money wise) for the year. Travel Insurance is strongly recommended and more so during the peak months, for any change of plans.
The getaway from the bitter cold, winds & snow to this beach area, starts about mid-October every year.
Try this place. You will be glad you did
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

NEW LISTING TO VRBO. I HAD A CONDO - VACATION RENTAL ON THE BEACH. TRY OUT THIS UNIT AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY YOU DID. I have travelled to over a 100 countries on work & vacation and stayed in the smallest of Pensiones & homes from Brazil to Australia & know what It takes to host..
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Found many travelers DON’T LIKE FILING CABINET TYPE REGULAR RECTANGULAR HOTELS. ROOMS. This is not a concrete jungle, like the condos up & down these Bay Area beaches. Here you have green grass, plants, flowers, trees and a fresh water & considered water front. Water on one side & look out from the opposite window is blue water again from the large pool. The price for this place with all the amenities is much below all other comparable vacation rentals available around here. All guests so far have expressed that it is more than they expected and have referred their family & friends, and I am really at 1/2 price. With 2 people occupying for this price around the beaches, each works out to 1/4 of what others charge as some prices are sneakily listed as per person like the cruises
