This property is a 4BR/2BA short term rental with a private pool, dock and a large screened lanai in an upscale area of St. Petersburg on The Tampa Bay. Whether on vacation, temporary assignment, or relocating from out of town, this home will make your vacation unforgettable or your relocation transition smooth and easy. Pet & child friendly

Enjoy the Florida sun with the whole family in this beautiful four bedroom, two bath, pet friendly, waterfront home in one of St Pete's most prestigious neighborhoods in the desirable (North of Central Avenue) Northeast section of St Petersburg. Family room, kitchen, dining, and lanai all face the water. Full formal living room in the front of the home ensures plenty of room for everyone.

Relax by the pool, and let the kids run free in the private, fully fenced yard with optional (removable and childproof) pool safety gate to ease your mind. Or, tie up your boat to your private dock and the Tampa Bay is at your doorstep. No boat to tie up, no worries, Florida Yacht Charters will pick you up at the dock (see web site below). Try your hand at fishing, kayaking, jet skiing, or stand up paddle boarding. There's so much to do, you won't be bored.

Enjoy the renowned beaches of St Pete, Clearwater and more, just a short ride from home and, after a day at the beach, leave the hustle and bustle of the crowded, tourist, beach area, and return home to the peace and quiet of this friendly, family neighborhood.

Five minutes from home, the expansive, downtown waterfront of St Pete offers waterfront dining, shopping, music, museums, and outdoor festivities including concerts, street fairs, movies and the famed 'pier.' Take a walk along the Tampa Bay or hop on a dinner or sightseeing cruise.

Take advantage of fishing, golfing, water sports and, Tropicana Field (home of the Tampa Bay Rays). Parks and playgrounds abound.

Should you decide to pull out all the stops, I can arrange for a privately chartered tour of the Tampa Bay aboard your very own 35' twin engine, twin cabin, Chaparral. This vessel comes fully equipped with a head, galley, and deck with refrigerator, sink and seating for ten. Pictures available. Captain Jeff can pick you up from the dock in the backyard! Call me for rates and availability.

Expand your reach to the Tampa area, just 30 minutes away, and enjoy Busch Gardens Theme Park, renowned restaurants including Bern's Steakhouse, Straz Center for the Arts, and much more.

Don't forget, Disney World and Sea World beckon just 89 miles away and a short hour and twenty minute drive.

What could be better? Come and share our little slice of heaven!

Please allow me to answer any questions you may have. You'll come to love the area as I have.

Resort feel

  • 5 of 5

This was such a lovely home. I couldnt have been more pleased! It was warm, inviting, plenty of room for a large family. The pool was just the thing for the kids, they swam every day. So much nicer than a hotel, it was like being at home, with all the accomodations we needed. I would recommend this property to anyone with a large family or group. The owner was lovely to deal with and so patient as this was my first time using the VRBO site.

Location was close to beaches & other sites that we visited. Quiet neighborhood, home was maintained beautifully. I could go on, not a single complaint.

Like being home only better

This is the perfect place for a family vacation! The house is a nice size, clean and comfortable. My daughters loved the pool and my husband enjoyed fishing off the dock. House is in a great location - close to beaches and area attractions. The owner, Kim, is extremely nice and very accommodating. We definitely recommend this property!

Comfortable, Roomy House in Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family spent a great week at this property. It was a large enough house that we had plenty of space to enjoy our visit. The large kitchen counter was perfect for the 5 kids in our family. The pool got a lot of use and we enjoyed the dock. The Florida room was a morning favorite to drink coffee and for evening card games. It was a nice neighborhood with friendly residents. Kim was attentive to our requirements and was accessible anytime for us.

Super Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a week at this property. It was absolutely perfect! The kids not only enjoyed the pool, but fishing off the dock in the early mornings and evenings too. Kim was absolutely wonderful to work with. I've already asked to return next year!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved staying at this property. There were six of us, and we never felt crowded. The house is in great shape, and very clean. The owner was very responsive to questions/concerns throughout the entire process from inquiring about the property prior to booking and throughout our stay. It was so nice to sit and watch the fish & dolphins jump while sipping our coffee each morning. We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing on the lanai and in the pool. The location is convenient to downtown St. Pete and it's a short drive to the beaches. We look forward to staying at this property again. Now that we are home, we miss our daily visits from the local birds, Herman & Henrietta.
