Great vacation house with nice pool

June 3, 2015

7 of us stayed in this house for 5 nights and had a great time. It was extremely clean and just about everything you needed was included including beach towels and beach chairs for our use. The pool was large and Karen even had a safety fence installed around the pool for us as we had small children . There was a security system which we used at night, mainly to keep the little ones for awakening and wandering around.. We felt very safe in the neighborhood. There were board games for older kids and adults and a WII system also. It is a short drive to shopping, and beaches and restaurants. A great place to stay!

Lovely home, fabulous week!

March 28, 2015

We were very pleased with our stay in St. Petersburg. The home was lovely, clean, and very well stocked with supplies. When there was a plumbing issue, I contacted the caretaker and a plumber quickly resolved the issue. It was just minutes away from the cathedral where our son was getting married, a wonderful gathering spot for all of our friends and family from out of town.

Nice house, nice neighbors!

February 12, 2014

We got to this house and it was very clean, and located in a great neighborhood. A neighbor immediately came out and said hello, offered to help unload motorcycles from our trailer, gave us info on when the trash came(the owner had told us this in an email-but it was nice of him anyway :) There are police officers who live in the neighborhood, which goes a long way making a visitor feel as if there won't be much crime! The pool was a bit chilly...but it was January lol

Cozy, yet spacious vacation home.

November 6, 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at this home. It was a comfortable, quiet and relaxing atmosphere. Nice little touches for both adults and kids. My girls enjoyed playing in the pool, using the pool toys and playing the Wii. We also played a board game available (something we rarely get to do at home). There were plenty of towels, dishes, cookware, T.V.'s, even a charging dock. Very clean, cozy and spacious rooms. We are looking forward to our next trip and would love to stay here again.

Great place to spend a retirement holiday a.

November 13, 2011

One bright sunny Saturday afternoon we slowed entered the residence we were going to spend the next month in. A glow fell upon our face as we wandered throughout the house, the glow of contentment. The house was immaculate, like a postcard. It did not take long for us to make ourselves at home, we checked out what supplies were available, read the handy guide book that Karen provided, made our shopping list and enbarked on the best holiday month any family could have. What can I say but, Thank you Karen for allowing us to spend our start of our retirement at your residence. It seemed like we spend hours in the pool, every day. We had visitors throughout the month, their feeling about the house were the same as ours, AWESOME . The grandkids loved playing in the pool, with the board games provided, on rainy days, and playing in the pool on rainy days LOL.You are centrally located, easy to get around, and the neighbours are great, and quiet. All in all, an outstanding holiday, thank you again.

One of the BEST Vacation Rentals EVER

July 27, 2011

We have rented more than a dozen vacation rentals over the years and this is by far, one of the best experiences we've ever had. The location is great - very convenient to grocery stores, Tyrone Square Mall, gas stations, and restaurants. Downtown St. Pete and the beaches are located within a 15-20 minute drive. It's not a fancy neighborhood, but it was quiet, clean, and appears safe. Location: A- (it's not on the water, what can I say?). The home was exceptionally clean and well furnished. The kitchen was fully equipped. The only thing I wanted that I couldn't find was steak knives. Having the little things like dishwashing liquid and detergent, scrub sponges, paper towels and TP, coffee filters, sweetener, salt & pepper, ETC. made arrival so much easier. Also, I've never seen so many beach towels in a rental either - and that was wonderful - for use in the pool and trips to the beach! The washer and dryer were a huge asset as we didn't have to pack as many clothes. House: A+ The pool was great! My grandson had the best time and he actually learned to swim while we were there. Thanks for all the pool toys - nice touch! The house has clearly been recently remodeled and was well decorated; we loved the terrazzo floors (wish we had them here). The beds were comfortable, the tvs were great (wish there was a second DVD player), and the a/c and fans kept the house comfortable in the 90 degree heat. Accommodations: A Price-wise, I thought it was a little high for the summer season. However, I've paid as much for accommodations that were not nearly as clean and well furnished. Value and experience: A-/A. Overall, this was a totally wonderful "A" experience. We had a great time and we will definitely look here when we want to return to the area.

Great Stay. Good location

June 7, 2011

The house itself was wonderful. As soon as you enter you feel at home. The Solar Heated Pool and overall layout of the place were the highlights. We did run into an issue with the air conditioning one afternoon, but the caretaker was very responsive and it was addressed within an hour. The neighborhood is pretty quiet and you're less than 20 mins to the beaches and downtown St. Pete.

vacation home

April 14, 2010

Home is located in a quiet neighbourhood, a short distance from beaches, shopping, etc. The home is in very good condition, has a good layout, and a pool. Everything needed was provided along with extras, eg. pool floats for children, beach chairs, towels, and cooler. Much thought was obviously given to setting this up for vacationers. Home is beautifully decorated, with different themes relevant to the area. The owner is friendly and pleasant to deal with and addressed any concerns quickly. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a pleasant, comfortable vacation.

Cozy, stylish and comfortable describe the vacation home we rented in St. Peters burg, Fl. The owner possesses great insight into the needs of a vacationing family. Everything we needed was provided from pool floats, beach chairs, to a Whinnie the Pooh toaster that actually toasts the picture of Tigger on the bread. We plan to go back again next year. Thank you. Sincerely, The Hartley Family
