Description of the St Pete Beach vacation home rental

This charming, well-appointed, comfortable home in St. Pete Beach, Florida is only a 5 block walk to the beach.

The home has two stories. The main living area is on the second story. Look out over the water and watch the large sailboats and yachts sail by through large sliding glass doors off the kitchen, the dining area, the living room, and master bedroom. The beautiful new kitchen boasts cherry cabinetry with granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances. This cozy home sits on a calm channel that leads to the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. As you look out over the water you will see an endless variety of birds as well.

The main living area of the 2nd story is accessed by stairs on the outside of the home, both in the front and back.

The first story is an 'open living space' with a sectional sofa, TV, 2 twin beds, a fridge, and full bath, off the pool area. It is cooled by a wall a/c unit. This space is generally not used, but is finished and new.

This property has ceramic tile throughout the living areas, and new carpet in all bedrooms. All the rooms are freshly painted. All bathrooms are completely renovated.

There is a lovely entry, huge new sofa with new furniture, 50" PlasmaTV and stereo.

The master bedroom, has a new king sized bed with pillowtop mattress for a deep and peaceful night's sleep.
It also provides a full ensuite with stand-up shower. There is a large walk-in closet in the master bedroom.

The master bedroom adjoins a "study-bedroom", with a desk for your computer, and day bed. This provides two additional twin beds (a day bed with a trundle underneath) for other guests, or as a retreat from your snoring spouse.

The second bedroom and bath are on the opposite side of the home. It sports Tommy Bahama furniture, a queen-sized bed, a walk-in closet, and it's own full bathroom, with tub and pedestal sink.

The dining room seats eight.

Enjoy your morning coffee or tea, or a meal, on the covered upper deck (which overlooks the pool area), where you'll have a great view of the legendary Don Cesar hotel.

Just below the upper deck rests a beautiful solar heated pool, with a southwest yard and palm trees, overlooking the sailboat canal. Occasionly dolphins (and even manatees) swim by to say hello. You can fish off the long dock or just watch the sunset from the dining room, living room, master bedroom.

A whole-house water filter has been installed, providing you with both safe and tasty drinking water (and water for bathing).

There is a full size washer and dryer provided on the main (second) floor.

The home is equiped with high speed internet and cable TV. There is a land line with free calls to the US and Canada.

Area Information
This is a very quiet, delightful, residental neighborhood.

The home is located in "Vina del Mar" a little island across from St. Pete Beach, on the Gulf of Mexico. This island has a real "Old Florida" feel to it. There are a mixture of older, smaller ranch homes and newer large homes on the island. Cycling is popular in the neighborhood, and you're close to the beach trails also.

You can walk to the beach itself (the Gulf of Mexico) in 10 minutes (only 5 blocks). Or walk to one of many local restaurants just "over the bridge" that will lead to the famous Pass-a-Grille Beach. There are several seafood restaurants, and an Italian restaurant within walking distance. There is a local meat and seafood market just across the bridge as well! A Publix grocery store is a five minute drive away, near the hotel section of St. Pete Beach.

The trendy town of Pass-a-Grille Beach has a variety of restaurants and shoppes. It's a 2 min. drive to this area. Old St. Pete beach town, with it's quaint shopping district, is only 7 minutes down the beach by car (or beach trolly).

There is a park for children on Vina del Mar, with free tennis and basketball courts. The beach itself is white sand (but not the real sticky "sugar" type) and never too busy! It's clean, uncrowded, and safe. It's a wonderful place for sunny daytime swimming and fun, or those long romantic sunset strolls by the water.

Boat rentals, jet-ski rentals, kayak rentals, etc. are all nearby.

So, just book your time, reserve a car right at the airport, and plan to drive on over (only 30 minutes) to your most restful and fun-filled vacation ever!

This home exceeded our expectations in every way. It's clear the owners are thoughtful, as no detailed was overlooked. The furnishings were comfortable and well appointed, the kitchen fully stocked, and the view spectacular. As I had to conduct some business, the office/den with wireless and a nice desk made life easy. Walking distance to historic Pass-A-Grille was a plus. The owners were responsive. Truly a gem.

Owner's reply:

I am very thankful for the kind words we have received. I have to say that we have been blessed with wonderful visitors. Everyone has been very understanding during the odd times that there are small household things that need our attention. We try to keep everything as perfect as possible, and we have feel lucky at having someone special (like Maureen) happen into our home. We are immensely pleased, when the experience that great guests have in coming to St. Pete Beach (and our home especially) turns out to be a true delight.
Thanks again so much!!!

This was our second stay at this remarkable home, with the initial stay in May. As described, it is perfect for 2 adult couples. Looking at the pictures now, that are provided by the owner, I swear I have taken them myself! Not enough can be said about the owner. Not only very accommodating, but truly wants you to get the most out of your stay here. Everything in the house and garden/pool area is very well maintained and in great working order. The location is second to none for peace and relaxation, with restaurants and bars nearby, some within walking distance. You will not be disappointed.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

To Whom it May Concern:

My wife and I live in a suburb of Chicago and we've stayed many times in St. Pete Beach. We love the home at 131 N. Tessier Dr. We enjoy laying out at the pool...taking a dip any time of day or night in complete solitude. You usually don't see or hear any neighbors around. It's so relaxing to look out over the water and watch the boats and yachts go by (it's a no wake zone, so it's very peaceful).

We look forward to going down for a break from the winter whenever we can, with our family. It's a wonderful place!
You'll love it.

To Whom It May Concern,

I have had the privledge to stay several times at the home located at 131 N. Tessier Dr., in St. Pete Beach. I've found it to be relaxing, comfortable and convenient to everything. In fact, I enjoyed the place so much that I purchased a home on Vina del Mar myself, and live there about three quarters of the year! You will truly enjoy your stay in St. Pete Beach, and to have all the comforts of this lovely home, and the privacy of your own pool under the stars, makes it even that much better!
