Overview

About the property

This 3000 sq. ft. Mediterranean-style townhome truly offers the best of the beach and the bay. The property is water front with wide water views. It is located directly on the expansive Boca Ciega Bay, an aquatic preserve. Just a block away, in less than three minutes, you can walk to the beach with the beautiful white-sands that Redington Shores is famous for. With miles of sprawling beach and lack of large-chain hotels, you and your family will have plenty of room to enjoy the Gulf shore. When you are ready to change the pace, fish from private docks, enjoy water sports on the bay, or just sit back and enjoy the view. The bay is home to Florida's signature water birds and is frequently visited by dolphins. This particular combination of bay-front and beach access is unique to this location and cannot be found anywhere else in this area.

SNOW BIRDS: Contact us for multi-week discounts.

With more privacy than a condo complex, we welcome you to stay with us in comfort. As of May 1, 2016, each bedroom on the third floor in the townhome has a new high-end memory foam mattress accompanied by new linens. To complement the GE Profile appliances in the kitchen, the chefs in your family will find a full suite of new cookware, cutlery and dishware.

Inside, the heart of the three floor townhouse is the open layout of the second floor, which provides roomy space for large families, groups, and our guests from the north who like to who like to stay with us for a month or more at a time. The living room features bay facing sliding glass doors that open on to the second floor balcony. The space is perfect for waterfront gathering and relaxing. Staying connected is possible too with cable and Wifi available throughout the townhome. Moving away from the bay, the living room flows into the formal dining space which is complimented by the grand staircase. In the kitchen, entertaining is made easy with a spacious functional layout complete with high-end appliances. Granite counter-tops are complimented with dark hard wood cabinets. Beyond the kitchen, a flex area can be used for breakfast or additional sleeping space for larger families or groups. There is a bathroom at the end of the kitchen with a shower-bath combination. Flooring is tile throughout the townhouse.

Upstairs, the third floor features 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Each bedroom contains a queen bed. The master bedroom is bay-facing with sliding glass doors that open onto the third floor balcony. The master bath has a double vanity with granite counter-tops. There is a separate walk-in shower and a deep bathtub. Storage space is ample with a walk-in closet. Additional privacy is afforded by the landing separating the master from the other two bedrooms. The washer and dryer are accessible from the landing for ideal convenience. The second bathroom is again finished with granite counter-tops and has a combination shower-bath. The second and third bedrooms face west with a partial ocean view.

The ground floor features a bonus room and a 2-car garage. Sliding glass doors from the bonus room open up onto the back patio with a gas grill. Two docks are available for guest and resident use. The large bay is perfect for relaxing, fishing and water-sports.

The townhome is equipped with cable and wifi. There are several options for food and drinks within walking distance and some great fine dining within a short drive. John's Pass Village and Board Walk is a short drive and has something for everyone with restaurants, entertainment, and beach-themed shops. One place that you don't want to miss is practically next door. Wahoo's may not look like much from the outside, but for an authentic fresh-off-the-boat grouper sandwich, this casual local bar is the place to go.

Our family started welcoming guests to Redington Shores 40 years ago, and as of March 2016 we became the owners of this townhome and two other near-identical units, and are happy to extend the tradition of welcoming guests to the beach started by our grandparents. Long since gone, long-time locals may still remember the charm of the old Sinbad Motel owned by our grandparents from the time when going to the beach meant putting a family in the car, stopping at a place that felt right, and enjoying a care-free week at the water. Our guests can now experience the best of Boca Ciega Bay and the Gulf beaches with over 3000 square feet of Mediterranean-themed space to call (vacation) home.

Thank you for your interest in this "best of the beach and the bay" townhouse. We know you will love it here because we love it too.

Love the Florida gulf coast! My family has vacationed from 30-A down to Anna Maria. Love the area!

  • 3 of 5

I'm giving three stars due to the condition of the condo upon arrival. As stated, we vacation on the gulf every year and have stayed in many rentals, I've always been pleased. When we arrived here, the unit was not clean. The area rug in the front room had clearly not been vacuumed, there was dust and hair up the stairs. Curtains were torn, walls were dirty, furniture damaged. Half eaten crackers in the garage, a partially deflated balloon left in a bedroom ( not a big deal but if the unit had been cleaned, this should have been seen). I did contact the property management and was told due to it being the end of the season, that's when they deal with issues with furniture and such. Understandable, the lack of cleanliness was not. We were offered a refund but had just arrived after a 15 hour drive and was not guaranteed finding another property, so we asked that the cleaning crew come back out to clean. They could not come out until Monday ( we arrived on Saturday) so I spent our first night cleaning, washing bedding and towels etc. I could not vacuum as there is no vacuum in the unit. Cleaning crew came back on Monday and vacuumed and cleaned. Once that was done, our stay was very enjoyable. The unit is spacious and we enjoyed being on the bay water and so close to the beach as well. My advice to the property owner would be to update the furniture, we did put blankets out on the sofas because they looked very worn and not very clean. overall, we had a great vacation but we didn't spend much time in the condo.

Summer 2017

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a great location. The view of the inter coastal is excellent. Dock behind the Units, so if you have a kayak bring it!!! The beach is across the street 2-3 minute walk. Great local restaurants within walking distance and local Fish Market 3 doors down. Grill in back of unit so you can view inter coastal and smoke cigars while grilling...

Inside the decor, well is not Beachy more in the line of New York/New Jersey Groover Style so bring your Big Collar Silk Shirt and White Dress Shoes...Great Balconies for water and dolphin viewing, Vino sipping and yes cigar smoking. Units have front and back balconies so you have a street view as well.

Unit is very roomy, 3 bedrooms 2 Full Baths upstairs with good beds and in our unit a 4th bed (double) was off the kitchen not a separate room, but a Full Bath is off the Kitchen.

Parking for the Units, there are 6 is a little tricky, but the garage is deep enough for 2 vehicles, 2 SUVs. Also another room in front of garage, our unit had a ping pong table in that room, some units have pool tables. Sliding door in this room with small patio, grill and dock. Caught fish from dock, dock is roomy enough for 4-5 chairs. A Good Time Was Had By All!!!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay here. very spacious. Located just across the beach with public access right across the street. Only negative was we had to ask for a broom as the cleaning people did not leave one for us. It was furnished within a couple of days. One of the cleaning requirements was to sweep the place. Thanks, will rent from you again!!

Spacious and close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, for the price and location, this townhouse was a HUGE hit with our two families. Must admit I was a bit concerned about the walk to the beach. It turned out to be just fine! After crossing a main road, you simply walk down a short sleepy side street and voila, you are at the beautiful beach where the sand is soft and the walks along the shore are fantastic. It takes like 3 minutes to get to the beach so no worries!

As for the townhouse, the kids enjoyed the dock and bay in the back. Us parents appreciated the view of the bay and coffee/reading/work in the morning on the nice-sized back porch. The kitchen was large and great for making a few meals "at home." When we went out, we were close to all kinds of restaurants. Also, Publix, Winn Dixie, Walmart, and CVS all within a short drive of the townhouse.

Add all this to the fact the owners are very nice and it was a smooth rental process and this equaled one of our best home rental experiences.

Great Location & Good Value

  • 4 of 5

I spent a week at this rental on a family vacation, there were two couples in their 50s, a couple in their 30s, a 20 year old and a 6month old (7 adults and a baby).

Positives: The location is great, away from the hustle and bustle of St Pete's and Clearwater beaches. It's a few minutes walk across the street to a beautiful beach. The house also backs directly onto a bay and has a little dock which is lovely. The deck off the living room facing the bay was our favorite spot for morning coffee and an evening drink. We even saw dolphins from the living room window one day, lots of birds too. The appliances are all new, great BBQ and the kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could need (tons of plates, glasses, cutlery etc...). The house is quite large and spacious, lots of room for the 8 of us. It was also priced well in comparison to some other rentals we had considered. There was a high chair and pack and play provided.

Minor Issues/Comments: The sleeping area off the kitchen is actually a double bed in the kitchen, just on the opposite side of the raised countertop. That wasn't entirely clear and a bit surprising but luckily was a non-issue for our group but could be for others. We had an issue with the hot water boiler which we were able to resolve by following some resetting instructions over the phone until a plumber was available to fix the main issue...48hrs later. The rental contract does state that there are no obligations to fix any of these type of issues during the stay and I signed that contract so really this was my own careless oversight, so this is just a warning to others - thoroughly read the contract! Another surprising issue was that when we arrived there were no additional items provided or left over from former guests...no paper towels, extra toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner, clothes detergent, dish detergent, coffee filters...nothing. I am a frequent user of vacation rentals for many years now all over the world and have never encountered this before. Again the very detailed house rules state that nothing is to be left on the premises so perhaps the previous guest took everything with them. On departure we left all paper items and detergents as a 'pay it forward' for future guests. The house could use a little TLC to make it really great. The furniture was a bit sparse and couches old and worn. Window coverings were flimsy and did not keep out much light.

In general it was a great week for us.
