About the property

Location - Sea Forest a pretty development on the inland waterways. Perfect!

Our home offers everything you could wish for in a vacation property. Five bedrooms and three bathrooms,( two of which are en suite), two sitting areas with a formal dining room and well equipped kitchen make this home the perfect place to stay. There is also a fully equipped laundry room which houses washer, dryer, iron and ironing board. This large home (3000 square feet) is ideal for the larger family or two families wishing to share accommodation. The games area in the family room offers additional entertainment for the more energetic whilst the pool and deck area lends itself to relaxation for sun worshippers. We have purchased the land at the side of our home so you will be able to enjoy more privacy and not be overlooked. The home is furnished to a high standard and we have a total of 6 flat screen tvs throughout the property. Wifi is available throughout the home so bring your I Pad, tablets, phones and laptops if you want to keep in touch with family and friends. Fully air conditioned throughout together with ceiling fans in all rooms ensures you can relax in comfort indoors. There is an extensive range of books to suit all the family available for you to enjoy in our 'library' in the hallway (including children's books) and an assortment of board games to entertain both adults and children. We are close to shops, restaurants and of course the beaches.

Our home offers flexibility for the family to enjoy a beach holiday with options to hire a boat, go jet skiing and other watersports at Honeymoon Island, Enjoy days out at Busch Gardens, Weekee Watchee (home of the mermaids) or Homasassa State Park (featuring a manatee sanctuary.) Watch the dolphins swim and play in the waters surrounding the homes on Sea Forest. Enjoy the many different restaurants all within an a10 minute drive and don't forget to visit the shopping malls at Countryside, Clearwater or the smaller Gulf View Mall 10 minutes North on the US19.

Please note - we only accept bookings for 8 persons or less. Whilst the house is large and offers five bedrooms we feel that parties of 8 guests is the maximum number for comfort and space.

About Chris and Sue

We have owned homes in both Orlando and the Gulf Coast since 1990 and continue to enjoy every minute of our time there. The Beehive is the latest purchase and we have been so happy there that we have not been tempted to move on from, what we think is, our ideal vacation home. We are 'hands-on homeowners' when we stay there and ensure that the property is always well equipped and up to date. We live in Sheffield, South Yorkshire with our Boxer dog Bumble and have children and a granddaughter who has been visiting Florida since she was 6 months. We all love to spend time there and are lucky enough to get over to Florida three or four times a year. We love our vacation home and invite you to share the experience and enjoy our home as much as we do.

Why Chris and Sue chose Tampa Bay

We searched many areas before deciding to buy the land and build our home here. We felt that it was the perfect location. It is close to the beaches, well within an hours drive to Tampa airport, 45mins from Busch gardens, lots to do in and around the area, and not too far from Disney World if you wish to take a day out to see Micky!

What makes this villa unique

A beautiful home and property.

  • 5 of 5

We just completed a month in this home and it was beyond our expectation. It is furnished inside and out with very comfortable furniture. It is as described "An Executive Villa". The owners are very professional and friendly always and easy to communicate with. If you are looking for a high quality home with all the amenities, look no further.

Fantastic house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The Beehive Villa delivered everything promised and much more. This was simply the best villa we have rented and we would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone who wants a relaxing time in a luxurious home. We can't wait to return.

Awesome Family home

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from renting this beautiful home and we had a great time, Sue was so helpful and even let us stay two hours after checkout due to bad weather. We were there for a funeral and was able to have a nice lunch with our family and an awesome time outside by the georgous pool. The house is so roomy and comfy. The pool table was great to just hang out with the family. I would definitely recommend this home and hope to one day bring my whole family with us since we didn't even get to use all the rooms available to us. Thank you for making our sad trip, enjoyable!!

The property is exceptional, a real home from home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the house and it didn't disappoint, we had a mix of weather and found the house so relaxing when it wasn't fit to go out due to a passing hurricane. There is so much to do, play pool and great areas to relax, I love the swing seat overlooking the swimming pool. We also found some great places to eat close by. The owners Sue and Chris ensured that we had everything that we needed. Our favorite golf club has to be World Woods.

Huge well equipped house

  • 5 of 5

We arrived as the sun had set and it had got dark so didn't get a good view of the house outside. Inside however was huge. The kids didn't know which bedroom to choose. The house is very well equipped and we had breakfast on the deck most mornings (except when we went to Denny's or Caponeys).

The upstairs lounge area is very relaxing for the adults and the kids absolutely loved the downstairs area and pool table.

Lots of lovely restaurants quite local and some beautiful beaches - we made it to Honeymoon Island and Tampa, specifically the Bay Plaza for Cheesecake Factory.

Tarpon Springs is a very pretty little fishing village and there are some fab boat trips from there.

A very relaxing holiday thanks Sue - we look forward to next time.

A perfect retreat where everything is close by

  • 5 of 5

When we first made enquiries regarding booking this villa the owner Sue was fantastic from explaining how the process worked to calling me personally to chat through everything and go further in telling me about the location, things to do and even giving me a fantastic restaurant recommendation. It felt like I was dealing with a friend and I started to look forward to the trip from that moment.

When we actually arrived the property was even better than I had imagined. It is really well equipped and so comfortable with everything you could possibly need for a fantastic holiday. Although we were just two renters I can easily imagine how the accommodation would also perfectly suit a larger party giving everyone plenty of space to enjoy with some privacy as well given the down stairs rooms could be almost a self-contained apartment.

Our favourite spot (apart from lounging by the fantastic pool!) was the upstairs covered balcony area named "Megan's den". We had a sudden storm one afternoon and I shall always enjoy the memory of sitting outside on the balcony in 84 degrees of heat whilst the rain fell and the tree frogs croaked away in the palm leaves beside us!

A magical experience, in a really super “home in the sun". Thank you Sue & Chris for letting us share it for a while - we would definitely love to return in the future

Ideal for a beach holiday our home is situated on a quiet community and is not overlooked. Sea Forest is a lovely development where the homes are built around the inland waterways which lead out to the Gulf of Mexico. A short drive gives access to many beaches, shopping centres, water sports and waterparks and is within 30 - 40 minutes drive of Busch Gardens. Clearwater is approx. 30 minutes drive. Caledesi Island and Honeymoon Island are also within easy reach and ideal for a day at the beach. Should you wish to spend a day at Disney World you can easily drive there in under 2 hours.

The Pinellas Trail is ideal for bike rides and Roller Blading and Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks is a lovely little Greek area with boutiques and shops and fabulous Greek restaurants serving delightful Greek pastries. Fish is a speciality and not to be missed. Dunedin, on the other hand is 20 -25 minutes away and has a weekend market and a lovely array of shops and restaurants. Why not hire a boat from the Marina close by and enjoy a spot of fishing or sail out to the Sandbanks for a picnic. Whatever you choose to do you will find Sea Forest the perfect place to find it,
