About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, Max 2 adults/2 children

Located in John's Pass, great shopping, dining, nightlife, wildlife, and the beach are all within walking distance of this waterfront property. It has a private, deep water dock with a boat slip, and a small swimming pool to create a relaxing oasis for 'getting away from it all'. Dolphins, birds, and sometimes Manatees will pay you a visit as you relax in the privacy of your own backyard. For more information, seven two seven, seven nine eight, four four eight six.

This unit is fully equipped and ready to be enjoyed. The bedroom has a queen size bed and the living room has a sleeper sofa and full size futon. There is also a futon chair which folds out and is perfect for a small child. A boat slip is also available.

The Beach Trolley runs from St. Pete Beach all the way to Clearwater Beach with a stop right in front of John's Pass. At Polito del Mar you can have the convenience of a great location with the privacy of a duplex instead of a multi-unit apartment. Relax, refresh, and enjoy.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy being directly on the water. We can fish right from our backyard! It is very private but at the same time we are in the middle of John's Pass with the beach, great shopping, dining and recreation only steps away. We can either walk or take the trolley or mass transit anywhere we want to go. It is perfect for 2 adults or 2 adults and 1-2 children.

Water, water everywhere!

  • 5 of 5

Stepping outside the back sliding door was a pool and steps away from that was the intercoastal. Across the front street was the Gulf. Perfect location for shopping, eating, swimming, walking. The trolleys and buses were also so convenient. The house was very clean and more spacious than we anticipated. This is the perfect vacation location. Owner very pleasant to work with and neighbor Bonnie was there for any questions you might have had. Hopefully, we will return in the future.

This home was suggested to us by our daughter and son in law. We thought it would be nice but never expected this. It was just outstanding! We have rented many nice places over the years but this one has to top our list by far. Beautiful and clean is just the beginning. When we walked out the back door into the yard we were beyond excited. The pool was sparkling and beyond, the intercostal with the dock and table and chairs sat waiting to be enjoyed. We ate many of our meals out there soaking up the sun and enjoying the wildlife and pure beauty of it all.

It also was wonderful to be able to just walk out the door and in two minutes we were enjoying the sights and sounds and SHOPPING at St Johns Pass. Stores, restaurants and so much more to do and see. The beach was also very close and walking over to watch the sunset almost every evening was fabulous!

If you are looking for a fantastic place to stay with all the comforts of home and still be on vacation, this is your place. I know we will be returning many times in the future. Thanks to Bonnie for her advice and just for being a great hostess.

Car: not necessary

Located in the heart of John's Pass, it is a short walk to shopping, dining, entertainment, the beach, and trolley. The Pier, Salvador Dali Museum, Ft. Desoto Park, and Baywalk are close by.

Take a Day Trip to Tarpon Springs, Weeki Wachee, or Theme Parks in Tampa and Orlando.
