First Family vacation with our adult children, spouses and grandkids. We rented this house for two weeks and just had a great time. You can walk to the beach it is a ten to fifteen minute walk. If you rent this house walk thru the alley and cut thru the neighborhood over to the Don and use the crosswalk there. There is a park in the neighborhood a street over it has a great playground and has tennis courts. This house is located on a bike and walking path that runs all over Tampa it will take you to Fort Desoto if you rent bikes. You can rent them at the Fort. You get there by walking over to the toll road and it has a path to the walking path. Under the bridge you can fish and chat with all the fisherman. We walked this at ALL hours. We also walked the bay side of the neighborhood to see all the boats and it is so pretty at sunset if you don't want to walk to the beach. When walking to the beach we would grab a ice cream at the Don it is on your way. You can also purchase and use part of the Don but have cash it is a little pricey. We weren't in the house much we had such great weather we spent many hours at the beach and the backyard and in the pool. We traveled with small kids that took naps so it was great, the parents could put them to bed and could swim and lounge in the backyard while they slept. The grill was great as you could cook on it for a large family. We could have used a few more baking sheets and bake ware dishes and they have all stainless steel skillets which are super heavy and hard to cook with. Could have used another TV in the twin bed room for the kids so we didn't have them in the living room but we all survived. Going out go the Warf up the street it is on 21st street which you can walk too. It has great food and so not pricey. The adults walked there many times plus St.Pete beach has a grill on the beach go there for breakfast so pretty eat right on the beach. Bring a cooler on wheels it will help and beach chairs with straps or handles. If looking for great items to take home we shopped the one rainy day and the best prices and the most stuff that says St.Pete beach was at the Wings on Gulf and Blinds Pass. Trust me on this. The owners we met and they were super easy to work with. This house is just great! The backyard pool and eating area couldn't be better. We will be back! Thanks to Leda for working with us on check ins and check outs. Super people! Thanks so much for letting us have memories of a lifetime.
