Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Carolyn and Lee

First and foremost we would like to thank you very much indeed for letting us stay in your wonderful house at St Pete’s Beach. All five of us had a superb time and are completely in love with Florida – and most of all your house. We swam, cycled and ate out every day, kayaked to shell key, swam with dolphins, parasailed, jet skied, rented a boat, enjoyed Christmas lunch at Don Caesar and fireworks on New Year’s Eve. We relaxed at no. 650 - watched films, sat by the pool, listened to music through the SONOS system and soaked up the glow from the fire pit on the deck.

We returned to a very rainy England with sun tans and feeling great.

We’d like to thank you for the lovely welcome hamper and your little note – arriving at no. 650 on Christmas Eve, straight from five ‘full on’ days of travelling, Disney and Universal, we found the hamper and note to be such a personal touch, and we liked you both immediately!

Heather was good to us and answered our queries expertly.

If ever you are in the UK, do please look us up!

With very kind regards

Carrie, Mike, Max 17, Scarlet 13, Poppy Lulu 12

(and Lydia 19, who is in the Alps for the ski season and couldn’t be with us – she was very envious)

Hard to express in words how nice it was!

  • 5 of 5

WOW!!! Pretty much all I can say right now. Thank you Carolyn and Lee for letting us stay in your lovely home. I cannot think of one thing that your home needs. It was immaculate and more then equipped. I do think my favorite thing was the bed. I have never slept on a more comfortable mattress ever. Heather stayed with us for a good hour going over every detail and answered any questions that we had making sure our stay would be perfect in which it was. All of the furniture from inside to outside was very nice and comfortable! More then enough towels and supplies. We cannot wait to go back!!!

Ahh comfort, beauty, a bay and perfect accomodation

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd season of renting a St Pete's beach property from Heather Musk. She is professional and highly responsive to our needs. We were delighted with this beautifully appointed home. It is clear that the intent of the owner and Heather Musk is to give you the best vacation ever. The beds are "ahh comfortable" with every amenity possible. Each bedroom has a beautiful and well stocked bathroom. The kitchen is so well laid out, it is stocked with everything but food. When we went we had plans to go out to other interesting venues. It was so perfect that we only left once. The surrounding neighborhood is full of beautifully kept homes and landscaping. You can fish off the dock, swim in a perfect heated pool, read, relax. We so loved it that we have booked early for this next year. When you book before 10/31/2016 you get a 15% reduction of the room rate. It is complete, lovely, fun and a place to unwind. We look forward to our next visit in April 2017. Dr. & Mrs. R. Sullivan

Beautiful Beach Home - Did not want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely gorgeous and was located in a very well maintained neighborhood. I waited really late to book a property so this was a little more than I wanted to pay. Well worth every penny!!! We went with another couple. The master was located upstairs which afforded privacy for both couples. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you need except for food. The pool was gorgeous and served us well. Actually it is so nice that we spent the last day of our trip by the pool. We had a great view from the master bedroom. My husband said watching the sunrise from the bed was incredible. I can honestly say I was not awake at sunrise and missed the view. :-) There are restaurants and beach bars within a 10-minute walk from the house. We did not take advantage of this because it was too stinking hot. So we just used Uber which worked for us. Snappers is at the end of the street and has excellent food. I could go on and on about this property. It was open and airy and well decorated and really made you feel like you were on the beach. The location made it easy to get to everything that we wanted to do including several trips to St. Petersburg. This was our first vacation rental and I must say it was a great experience. We would definitely stay at this house again. Thanks to Heather for all of her help and answering my barrage of questions. And thanks to the owners for allowing us to use their beautiful property.

Wonderful top notch vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the great opportunity to stay at this beautiful home for our 25th anniversary. It's in a fantastic location with beautiful open water views. Its well appointed - just bring your beach wear! Although there was just the two of us - there is room for a large family. All the furniture was very comfortable. The kicthen has everything and stores are close. The outside is fairly private - with a pool and heated hot tub. Also included is a grill, an outdoor bar and a gas fire. The manager was very professional and made every effort to accommodate us. She greeted us and made sure we were comfortable. Thank you Heather!!! We will DEFINITELY be back.

This house was AMAZING! To the owners, you did a great job providing for your renters! We thank you!

YES....everything is from Pottery Barn:) From plastic cups in the kitchen to bath towels and duvet covers....its all from Pottery Barn! Hence, we call it The Pottery Barn House!

The photos do not show the open floor plan of the home, when you walk in the front door, you see all rooms: 2 different dining areas, living room and kitchen. A great open floor concept. The furnishings are very comfortable!

The entertainment package in the living room and out by the pool is operated from a Sono's system...which was so cool! You download the sono app on your iphone and control the system right there from your phone. I am sold on wanting a Sono System now. We had issues getting the sound to work in the living room...but it was fine...because we were always out by the pool.

The back yard/pool area was wonderful. Comfortable Pottery Barn couches and loungers...everyone always had a seat. We sat out every night and retracted the awning (again another super cool feature of the home) and could see the stars as we had the gas fire pit lit....We never had any issues with the neighbors although we respected the quiet hours of 10 during the week and 11 on the weekend. But we were pretty tired from the days events!

Even though the house is Perfect, I do have a few "recommendations" that our group felt would be an improvement to the home:

1.) Towel hooks around the pool area and in bathrooms. There isn't anywhere to hang your wet towels....these would be nice to have.

2.) More silverware, storage containers and a stock pot in the kitchen. We had a group of 8 and always ran out of silverware. We cooked in every night except one because why would you want to leave this amazing house for dinner??? There wasn't enough storage for left overs. One night we boiled crab legs and shrimp and didn't have a pot large enough so we had to use 3 to get the job done.

3.) The air flow in the sleep number bedroom is is by far the hottest room in the home....something needs to be looked into on this one:)

4.) The hallway bathroom window needs a blind. You sit on the potty in the morning and that sun comes baking don't need a blind since the glass is not see through but it could help cool it off.

Heather was the BEST, easy and great to work with! She was very helpful and helped us with what we needed! We will definitely return to this one!

Take care until we meet again! Heather

Straight out of the Pottery Barn Catalog

  • 3 of 5

This house was amazing when we walked in. Literally every single item in this house and on the pool deck was from Pottery Barn. Emaculate conditions. Super comfortable beds, nice tv's and cable. We truly felt like we were at home. We had the unfortuanate circumstance of having bad renters before us though and the management had a tough time catching up. The renters before us left the pool disgusting, didn't wash the pool/beach towels, left empty bottles of booze in the master bedroom, and food in the outdoor bar, etc. THe management had great communication, I think they were very overwhelmed when we arrived. But they did their best to fix what they could, when they could.

They are not kidding about not having this be a party house. We used it for two families with young children (1yr, 2.5yr, 7yr and 8yr). And we were out not late on the pool deck after the kids had gone to bed (around 8pm) and the next door neighbor gave us the death stare. We weren't playing music there were only 4 adults outside, we weren't even drinking, we were talking in the jacuzzi. I attribute this to the prior renters. The police showed up the next day saying a complaint was called in the night before of a bunch of teenagers partying...I let him in to show him the 4 kids still in their pajamas eating breakfast..he laughed it off.

So all in all, this was an excellent house and it would have been perfect had the prior renters not affected our stay. Highly recommend.
