Fantastic beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on St. Pete Beach largely due to our terrific accommodations. This beach house is everything described by the HO and more! We rented this home to attend a family wedding in April. It is comfortable, spacious, well-equipped and nicely furnished. The quiet surroundings and proximity to the beach exceeded our expectations. The HO has provided a notebook of information to guide renters in choosing restaurants, carry out and we found the grocery store - Publix - to be close by and very efficient and economical. Each day we used the wagon that was provided to take chairs and towels back and forth to the beach. This made things easy and convenient. The washer / dryer were a welcome plus. Two decks provided shade and quiet relaxation. Definitely 6 stars - 5 are not enough.

Owner's Response: Wow! Thank you so much Tom and Vickie for your generous review. It is a little slice of paradise and I hope if you plan to visit St. Petersburg Beach again you will stay at the Thompson Retreat.

Well done! Comfortable, cozy & relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The decor is lovely yet comfortable with ample space for our group of five. Shannon has thought of every detail to make guests comfortable from towels and flip flops for the beach to kitchen supplies and place settings for having a meal in or snacks up on the roof. Everything was cleaned and looked very well cared for. We felt wanted and welcome and as comfortable as at home.

The Don Cesar is just a short walk down the beach--great place for drinks and appetizers at sunset. Several other places to eat and shop are nearby, yet it was still quiet at the house.

If we are in the area again, we will stay here.

February at St Pete Beach

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as advertised -- very comfortable, nicely decorated, right on the beach, and all of the amenities one would need.

We spent a few weeks here, and loved the house. The location, right on the beach, a couple blocks from the Don Cesar Hotel is perfect. Great kitchen, gas and charcoal grills, outdoor patio, 2nd floor deck (to watch those St Pete sunsets), two bikes, fishing equipment, chairs, towels, umbrellas -- really everything you would need to enjoy your vacation.

Awesome accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Shannon was very prompt in all her communications and very easy to deal with. Her beach house is idyllic and her decor very high quality and perfect for its location. Everything was spotlessly clean and much thought had gone into provision of soaps, paper towels, beach towels, etc. The location is wonderful, steps from a white sandy beach and walking distance to Pass A Grille.

All the linens were of very high quality and in abundant supply. High end appliances and utensils made staying 'home' for dinner a pleasure. We used the gas BBQ on several occasions, buying fresh snapper and grouper from St John's Pass fishermen.

Even though we had two days of continuous rain during our stay it was cosy and a pleasure to be inside in this beautiful beach house.

I fully recommend Shannon and her property for rental.

Work Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I and three colleagues rented a house rather than stay at the conference hotel. What a great decision! The Thompson's house was perfect. The house is charming and comfortable. It was just close enough to the conference and just far enough away to be a retreat from all of the activity when needed.

The beds are very comfortable, the décor is perfect and there is everything you could need or want in the kitchen. The deck offers beautiful views of the beach, ocean and amazing sunsets. From the house we watched frolicking dolphins and pelicans and it is a short hop through the dunes to the beach.

No one wanted to leave and we could definitely have spent a few extra days just relaxing. The next time any of us are in St Pete's Beach we will return to this wonderful refuge.
