Description of the St Petersburg vacation home rental
Modern Pool Home in Quiet Family Neighborhood - Close to Beaches and Downtown!


Enjoy your next Florida family vacation at 'Il Dolce Far Niente' (The Sweetness of Doing Nothing) in our beautiful rental home in lovely Bahama Shores in St. Petersburg, Florida. Watch beautiful sunrises less than a two minute walk away, in the quiet neighbourhood that was the location for the movie 'Cocoon'. From the oak lined brick boulevard, past the huge, incredible banyan trees to the waterfront park, this small, quiet community on Tampa Bay offers a wonderful getaway location for your family.

Relax on the patio and in the pool in or drive 8 miles to the sun and sands of St. Pete Beach, just one of the beautiful beaches in the area. 12 miles away, experience nature and quiet beaches at Fort DeSoto Park. Drive 5 miles to downtown St. Petersburg for dining, night life and sightseeing at museums and galleries including the incredible Dali Museum and Chihuly blown glass exhibit. And in March, experience the roar of the engines through the downtown streets during the St. Petersburg Grand Prix. In under an hour drive, you will find yourself in Tampa, Bradenton and Sarasota where you can enjoy shopping, dining, culture and more beaches!

Newly renovated in 2103, our open floor plan 3 bedroom, 2 full baths home comfortably sleeps 6. Fresh paint in great colours accent the new bamboo floors throughout. A mix of modern and vintage, this eclectic home features original art and modern decor in a relaxing setting. Close the 3 pocket doors to ensure privacy and quiet or open them for easy flow through the house.
Retire or relax in the nautical themed master suite with a king bed, full ensuite bath and large walk-in closet. On the other side of the living area are 2 more bedrooms separated by another full bathroom. One features a tropical decor with a queen bed while the other has an ocean decor with twin beds, which can be converted to another king, if requested. Each bedroom features a ceiling fan, new flat screen television with cable and DVD player and duvets in fresh, clean covers for every guest! All bedrooms are tastefully decorated in coastal themes and furnished with lovely mid-century furnishings. New modern cabinets and lighting accent both bathrooms. All linens, towels and beach towels are here.

Enjoy movie night on sleek leather furniture in the living room, in front of a 55" Smart TV with Blu-ray, cable with DVR, HBO and Netflix. Keep in touch with wireless internet and a phone with free long distance and calls to Canada. Prepare meals in the brand new, bright, fully equipped modern kitchen overlooking the pool, with stunning grey cabinets, colourful pendant lights and granite countertops. Grab a quick bite or serve at the kitchen peninsula. Dine at the gorgeous mid-century Danish teak table that comfortably seats at least 6. Eat breakfast, play games, do puzzles or catch up on work (if you must!) in the game room.

Outside, enjoy your morning coffee on the front patio by the garden, under large Live Oak trees. Go for a walk or bike ride in this quiet family neighbourhood and see beautiful native birds, geckos and other wildlife enjoying the day as well. Two patio doors lead to the back patio in the large fenced private yard. Relax by the screen enclosed inground pool on comfortable lounge furniture or grill outside and dine at the outdoor table for 6. No worries if it's raining,“ you'll be protected from rain or sun under the overhang, cooled by lighted fans. Inside the double car garage you'll find a washer and dryer and if you want to bring your RV or boat there is a large, secure parking area inside the fence. Launch your boat at any of several public areas nearby and enjoy a day in the Gulf fishing, relaxing or looking for dolphins! The nearby activities available are endless; fishing, golf, sporting events and more. Grocery stores, pharmacies and gas are minutes away.
Then, if you are tired from all this activity come back to your 'home away from home' and enjoy 'Il Dolce Far Niente'!

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Gina D. said... Dec 9, 2015- The Real Deal *****
We came down to escape the cold of Maryland while spending Thanksgiving with family in St. Petersburg, FL. We had 4 generations in the house for a whole week and enjoyed every minute of it. The house was beautiful and well maintained. The picture lovers found many spots to take selfies. It was close enough to local attractions that the young adults could go sight seeing. The house was comfortable and inviting for the senior citizens to relax and enjoy all the young people. The beds were comfortable. It was enough room for us to spread out when needed and then to come together to eat. The children enjoyed the basketball court and the bikes. And even endured the cool water of the pool. Janna is very pleasant to work with. The pictures and reviews are accurate and true. This home would be an excellent choice for a home away from home.

Denise T. said... Nov 5, 2015- Simply the best! *****
We have travelled extensively throughout the USA and Europe and stayed in many wonderful properties but we can honestly say that Tom and Janna's house is the best of the best. The house is extremely well equipped, spacious and comfortable and the pool area a great space to relax in. We loved the neighborhood - there was a good choice of restaurants nearby also supermarkets if we wanted to eat in making use of the superb kitchen or barbecue which we did a few times. Even although Tom and Janna were on holiday hundreds of miles away, any minor queries we had were answered by email within a couple of hours. We will certainly recommend this house to our friends and family and if ever we find ourselves needing accommodation in this area again, we won't have to think twice of returning.

Dena C. said... Sep 8, 2015- Amazing House *****
The property is as pictured on the inter-web. Janna and Tom were amazing hosts, they were on hand for any questions and made sure our stay was fun. My family enjoyed the house especially the pool, the house is well kept and immaculate. The host provided bicycles for adults and children to enjoy the neighborhood, umbrellas, toys, cooler, and beach towels for beach excursions. The bedrooms were very roomy and comfortable with plenty of natural light. I loved the interior design that went with the house contemporary yet chic and comfortable. A PLUS was the enclosed pool and patio great for just lounging around. The property also has a side yard that has a duel purpose extra parking/basket ball court. Coming here for the first time....Janna suggested great places to visit, dine at, and shop. We had an amazing trip because of the beautiful property and having such accommodating hosts. Thank you Tom and Janna. Looking forward to visiting again.

Cornelia K. said... Aug 21, 2015- Beautiful House *****
We have experienced in your home a wonderful vacation. The house is equipped with all electrical appliances and kitchenware, what you can imagine. It is very clean and modern. We felt right at home and did not want to fly home even. The kids also liked and found it especially the large pool and outdoor area great. We have stopped us a lot in the beautifully landscaped outdoor area. The surroundings of the house was very quiet and all around were trees and plants. It was like a green oasis. The grocery stores were all within easy reach in 5-10 minutes. Among the bigger malls you went there in 20-30 minutes. The beach is also within easy reach by car. We can only recommend this house and be determined again to spend a holiday here.

Kristen J. said... Aug 1, 2015- Perfection! *****
This home couldn't have been any better! A great vacation home for any group. What you see is exactly what you get! The home is spacious and has a lot to offer. My group could not believe how well stocked the house was. Anything you could possibly think about is at your fingertips. The renters, Tom and Janna, have gone over and beyond to ensure a perfect vacation getaway. They checked in to make sure we arrived safely and Tom even came by before we left to make sure that we had a great stay. I am looking forward to coming back!!

Sarah H. said... Jun 24, 2015- Beautiful House! *****
My family of four had a wonderful stay! The house is exactly as it looks in the pictures. Kitchen is well stocked and had everything we could possibly need. My 5 year old enjoyed having toys to play with at the beach and there was a pack-n-play already set up for my infant when we arrived. Beds were comfortable and the pool was well maintained. The patio provided a good amount of shade and the landscaping made the backyard a private paradise. A+ for cleanliness. Janna was very attentive and always quick to respond to my emails/questions. The only downfall was that we couldn't stay longer.

THOMAS E. said... Jun 19, 2015 *****
Outstanding from start to finish!
As we pulled up to visit the house, Tom and Janna were just leaving after a full day of cleaning. It was nice to meet the owners and they offered a full tour of the house to include some tips and tricks for the house and dining in the area. My family of four was completely impressed with everything, especially the cleanliness of the house and the obvious attention to every detail. The design was impressive. The kids loved having their own bedrooms, each with a TV. There was plenty of room for all of us to stretch out and just relax. The pool area and landscaping are truly beautiful. My son loved catching lizards that ran around outside of the screened in porch. The pool was the perfect temperature for the middle of June. There was plenty of room to have a few of our relatives over for a pool day. The privacy fence was perfect. Big trees provided the perfect combination of shade and sun while enjoying the pool - which we did every single day. The kids had so much fun in the pool that the TV in the main living room never even came on. Not once. That's pretty amazing for my kids! We even played a few of the board games that they had including Apples to Apples. The spacious garage allowed us to park inside and also included four bikes for us to ride around the neighborhood - what a great surprise. They also included beach towels, beach umbrellas, beach chairs and coolers, beach toys etc. They thought of everything. The kitchen was well complimented with literally everything you need, including utensils, blender, paper towels, etc. The ice machine worked great, and every appliance looked practically brand new and spotless. They have a BBQ grill outside of the pool area, but I never got the chance to use it. Most importantly, the air conditioning worked great. That's pretty important in Florida! We had a great time and can not wait to come back again in early June 2016. I will book it early. Thanks Tom and Janna for everything!

Gorgeous home, outstanding location, and gracious hosts - does not get any better than this! Can't wait to return - and stay longer!

David M. said... Mar 6, 2015 Better than a 5 star hotel! *****
This place was amazing! Everything about it was top-notch: the decor, the landscaping ,the pool and lanai. There is nothing you could want for in this beautiful space, from martini glasses to beach toys to every tv channel, including Netflix. The owners have gone above and beyond to provide a home away from home. We had a lot of company when we were here but we were never uncomfortable. There is enough seating, 4 tvs, and the kitchen has enough counter space to cook up a feast. We had a wonderful stay here and we can't thank Tom and Janna enough

dna2003 said...Mar 18, 2015 Amazing Home. Great for families with young kids! *****
I looked long & hard for a vacation home that was similar in style with our current home & would be accommodating for young kids -- this place fit perfectly! The owners were so helpful & made it so easy on us. They provided: a pack & play, a high chair, & pool toys all for the kids. Not to mention, once they found out I was a beach diva & needed a chair & umbrella for the beach -- they provided those too! The house was fully furnished & so comfortable, it was like coming to our home in FL. It was perfect, amazing, incredible...I could go on. I already want to go back!

Robert & Gail Echevarria said... Feb 13, 2015 *****
Excellent home away from home family rental.
Thank you for the opportunity of our family enjoying our 6 week vacation in your beautiful home. This home allowed for many evenings of celebration, totally relaxation, morning breakfast to brunch and gatherings with our new granddaughter and niece. Pool area was amazing for breakfast and dinner meals. The neighborhood was quiet and safe. Everything you could need was right there also close access to highway and shopping areas. Extremely comfortable home. We look forward to staying here again.

Family that Travels said... Jan 3, 2015 *****
Excellent Saint Pete Family Rental!!!
Our family headed down to St. Pete for Thanksgiving week and could not have asked for a better home to stay in! Every amenity, gadget, cookware, pool item, and linen we could have asked for or needed was readily at hand. We cooked and hosted Thanksgiving dinner for 10 easily in the home. My young daughters loved the backyard and pool; we couldn't get them to come in, even in the rain! The owners are meticulous when it comes to cleanliness and accommodating all their visitors may need. We can't wait to head back next fall!

Kama'aina said... Sep 15, 2014 *****
Outstanding Quiet Property
This property exuded pride of ownership. The owners have gone to great pains to create a quiet haven for visitors to either stay and enjoy house and pool or to use as a base to explore the area. It was immaculate and up-to-date. The exterior was well kept. They have tried to think of just about everything visitors would need or could use during their stay. They even brought over a little chair for our granddaughter, which was a hit. We appreciated the opportunity to stay here and would not hesitate to do so or recommend it to others.

Katrina said... Nov 14, 2014- Best trip ever!!! *****
I can't wait to stay again, this had everything we could ask for. From the immaculate home, beautiful decor, screened in pool,great location,and awesome homeowners. We wished we would have stayed an extra week, no one was ready to leave. Anything we needed was already there. Even the garage was immaculate and had beach chairs,toys,umbrellas and even bikes for us. I really appreciated having a washer and dryer. Great beaches are within a few miles, I recommend De Soto beach ( the north shore), Saint Petersburg Beach, and the stretch that continues along down by Treasure Island. Tom and Janna are so considerate! Thank you for the best vacation ever! I loved my first trip to Florida, and can't wait for our next!!!!

P said... Oct 29, 2014- Amazing vacation *****
Myself and 4 other ladies stay at this wonderful home during our girls holiday in Oct. 2014. Everything was perfect. Each of the three bedrooms had very comfortable beds with high quality linens. The kitchen was well equipped and the outside area with the heated pool was perfect for early breakfasts and late night dinners. The location is great as we were only about 20 minutes from the Ellenton Outlet and about 10 minutes from the beach. I would recommend this place to anyone. I will certainly be keeping this location on my must return list.

Joyce said... Sep 24, 2014- It was perfect *****
Six adults rented this house and we all agree, it was much better than we could have imagined. It was clean, beautifully decorated and many extras we did not expect. Would definitely recommend it for your next vacation

Nathalie said... Aug 29, 2014- Perfect stay *****
The house was perfect and had everything that we needed. The owners were attentive and respectful. Pit was close to everything (store, beaches, restaurant...). Really, the perfect place. We will go back without any hesitation.

Eric A. said...Aug 5, 2014 *****
Great and comfortable home away from home
This home was exactly like documented in the add. Everything you could possibly need during your stay is available. If not, the owners will bring it immediately. We loved the house and the location. We hope to visit again in the near future.

Lizzy said... Aug 31, 2014 *****
Beautiful vacation home with great owners!
This home is very modern with all the furnishings, well maintained and extremely clean. Every room had its own special touch, we could see how much thought was put into preparing for us!The kitchen was well equipped with all the cooking essentials and an outside gas grill- which we used everyday! The pool was very clean and refreshing! Usually on vacation you don't want to sleep much since there is so much to do, but the comfort of the beds and duvet covers made us sleep just a lil extra! ;) This house had everything we could possibly need, we were calling it "home" during our stay! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, and will definitely be back here again! Janna and Tom are more than accommodating and very pleasant to deal with. Thanks again letting us stay in your lovely home.

Jennifer said...Jul 24, 2014-Beautiful Home *****
I rented this property with my husband, infant daughter, and my sister and her family for our Florida vacation. The house is very beautiful, as seen in the photos. The pool was amazing. I was great to be able to relax in a pool without worrying about bugs! There was a grill in the yard too which was nice. We used it several times during our stay. There were several baby related items such as the pack n play, high chair, and an infant float for the pool for us to use! Thank you for letting us stay in your amazing home.

Conference group said...Jun 14, 2014 great place *****
Enjoyed our science conference in Florida, while renting this property. Nice house, backyard, and neighborhood…facilities and equipments are all great. Strongly recommended. Moreover, the owners are very helpful and kind.

Kat NYC said...Jun 5, 2014 Amazing! *****
We were looking to get away from NY for a few days with our 5 month old son... booked some flights and started looking for a place to stay. From the minute we spoke with Janna on the phone, I had a good feeling about the place. The house itself was perfect. The pool area was just right, with both sunny and shady areas. The fans in the overhang allowed for more cooling. The pool was just the right temperature. The house has pretty much anything that you can think of. There is a BBQ which we ended up using daily! The house was decorated beautifully and tastefully. Every room had its own theme. They even set up a pack and play for the baby to sleep in! It was our little private oasis for a week. Pictures do not do it justice. However, the thing that really made our stay wonderful was Tom and Janna. They were amazing hosts and wanted to make sure that everything was as we wanted. When you get amazing people who are genuinely caring it shows both in dealing with them directly and the house that you stay in. and then there is the other stuff, close to downtown, supermarket, etc. Would recommend this place in a heartbeat and we’ll probably be back.

Doug said...Apr 27, 2014 Perfect *****
This home was absolutely fantastic. Having never rented a house before, I was a bit apprehensive about what to expect. This home totally blew me away. So clean, so well maintained, I was as comfortable as if I were in my own home. We will be back for sure

A&J said...Mar 24, 2014 *****
Perfect Escape from the Canadian Winter of 2013/14
My husband and I and another couple thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. Tom and Janna's renovations and landscaping have made this a home that I could easily live in all year round. It's very clean and the layout is superb for couples to share the home. The neighbourhood lends itself to walks along Tampa Bay, biking in the neighbourhood or lounging around the pool. So quiet and relaxing. Tom and Janna have thought of everything you may need from the bikes in the garage to the cooler that you can take along to the beach. They are also a wealth of information on which beaches to go to, restaurants to have delicious seafood and events from arts/culture to sports (golf, fishing). Shopping is close by. We didn't want to leave. Highly recommended. Thanks Tom and Janna

RB said...Apr 1, 2014 *****
A wonderful and beautifully decorated home in a quiet older and mature area with lots of vegetation and trees - very relaxing . Tom and Jana were both a delight to get to know during our month stay.

Atkis said...Feb 15, 2014 Home away from home. *****
This house had everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Our children loved the pool right out the back door and we felt very safe with all the safety features in place. The location was great, lots of places to go and great restaurants all around. This house had all the amenities of your own home. We can't wait for our next visit!
