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.

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.

NEW LISTING TO VRBO. I HAD A CONDO - VACATION RENTAL ON THE BEACH. I have traveled to over 125 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. Must be 35 years or older, give or take a few years. A bylaw Requirement Rates do vary, usually only $10 to $18 according to demand. Weekend rates may apply for events. FEES, QUITE OFTEN NONE (ZERO) APPLY, 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. 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. Trip Cancellation 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. I AM REALLY AT HALF PRICE. TRY THIS PLACE. YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID

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..

What makes this house unique

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. VRBO/Homeaway offers Property Damage Protection. Guests need to have this or a refundable damage deposit of $350. This deposit is waived at owner’s discretion. The refundable deposit or damage insurance is mandatory when accompanied by a pet or child under 10.

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.

I do not have any hidden fees. As posted on all websites the only fee is the $34 check/cash cleaning fee that goes directly to the agency. They check the room for any damages, inventory & bring it back to the condition owner rented it. Costs me $60, but I have to keep it competitive.VRBO/Homeaway offers Property Damage Protection. Guests need to have this or a refundable damage deposit of $350. This deposit is waived at owners discretion. Pets $4.50/night/per pet, reduced to $3.50 for monthly rentals. Long Weekend Holidays $8 to $18 Extra (for 3 days before to 2 days after). Fees are not applicable in most cases if applicable vary by number of occupant’s and holidays. Weekend rates apply only to guests for less than a month stay. Depending on demand all owners adjust their rates. Once booked or reserved with a STRA (Short Term Rental Agreement), no owner can adjust rates. So please book & lock in early. Travel worry-free with travel insurance in case you have to cancel.

Enjoyed the privacy of the property. Owner was easy to work with. Would have preferred private heating and cooling controls and a full kitchen.

BEWARE: I rented this property located in Largo, FL from a VRBO AD that states the property “accommodates (3)”, unfortunately the property consists of a (1) bedroom with (1) bed and a space heater, (1) bath), no heat, and is attached to the main house, hence a false AD. It does not sleep 3 persons, unless 1 person sleeps on the floor or in the bathtub. There are pictures of a table and chairs leading one to believe you will sit and eat at that table, which is clearly posted on the website. This is a woefully misleading false advertisement, there is no table and chairs as disclosed in the AD. In fact “after” my arrival I was instructed not to take food in the bedroom and you must eat out side. Clearly, this should be pre disclosed, the AD is clearly false there is no table and chairs!. We are just warming up here --- It gets worst -- After traveling 2.5 days, upon arrival the owner wanted more money over and above what was previously paid. As a tired traveler, I caved in and paid more, I needed rest. My original stay was for a period from January 28 to February 28, I checked out after 3 nights. It took me 3 days to find lodging its peak season - I was stuck. All of the above is documented with e-mails and text messages from the owner to me. This sad event is under investigation by numerous party's to include (credit card company, VRBO and others); the matter is in full dispute. Praise technology and the awesome "documented" path it leaves validating every communication I have had from the beginning to the end of this woefully misleading advertisement devised by the owner and VRBO. STAY CLEAR!

Owner's Response: People in this world, especially those who can afford to travel/vacation are good decent and honest people. Mr. Bob P. is exactly the opposite and I REQUEST ALL MY FUTURE GUESTS TO UNDERSTAND HIS REVIEW IS MALICIOUS. This man is extorting me & blackmailing me, despite getting all his money back. He arrived alone, which seemed strange My wife socialized with him & I have pictures of him sitting with his dog AT THE TABLE PICTURED on the website. My wife offered to take care of his dog. I CAN ASSURE ALL MY FUTURE GUESTS THAT THE UNIT AND ALL ITS AMENITIES ARE EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED. It has been checked out for accuracy by 2 local rental agencies and met all the expectations set forth in the posting on all the websites. Bob arrived on a Friday and I had informed him I was leaving Florida on Monday and will be away for 3 weeks. He understood he could text me with any issues. I AM IN INSTANT CONTACT WITH MY GUESTS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. He had only 2 people on his lease. As posted there is an expensive Simmons Foldaway Guest Bed (Cot). The state of the art Carrier central AC with a reverse cycle heat pump is set to auto heat or cool as desired by the guest with one text and also WiFi controllable. There is a high-end remote-controlled Vornado Whole Room Panel Vortex Heater, to let people be comfortable when soaking in a bath tub and on the tub bench. Being a tropical area, too many creatures of god, love it too. All guests are requested to avoid eating and leaving half-eaten food in the room. Florida’s gets 100 million plus visitors a year plus transit (cruise) with billions of Dollars. There is zero tolerance by various Gov agencies for any rip-offs, misrepresentations, including extra money demands. I did not receive his pet deposit or payment for the extra days in the mail. He gave me checks a day later. I never demanded them. Why would he leave without finding another place which is almost impossible? At Peak of winter, this beach area is overfull with snowbirds escaping the bitter cold from North, Europe & Canada. I have no idea, how long this guy stayed, had he given the key to somebody else? It was occupied and locked with no spare key available till I returned to Florida. Not a single accusation of Bob is true. How can a person be so evil when I am just a phone call away to solve any issues? HOSPITALITY, GUEST COMFORT, AND MAKING YOUR VACATION MEMORABLE ARE A TOP PRIORITY.
