Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Getaway to one of the last beach side homes in the resort district and enjoy a magical, sun-filled Florida vacation!

Our home -- with it's fabulous location, modern conveniences and rustic charm -- is unmatched from others on St Pete Beach. We are walking distance to hotels, restaurants and shopping, while nestled less than 30-seconds from the sand and surf.

Even the locals are charmed when they walk into the home. Built on Jan. 12, 1933 with tongue-in-groove wood floors, walls and ceilings, the home captures the nostalgia of beach living with all the upgrades of today's comforts.

Come to our home and experience 7 miles of public beach to explore. Hunt for sea shells, enjoy a leisurely swim, fish if you feel like it. Walk out the front door and see brilliant sunrises to your left, spectacular sunsets to your right. You’ll find the perfect combination of sand, sea and sky at this destination.

We've also found our home to be perfect for parents and family members of a wedding party that want a home base to help coordinate but able to relax between festivities, this is your place! The home is a quiet retreat so we do not allow parties or large gatherings at the property. We even had folks come back to stay for their anniversary!

This two-story beach house includes 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths with a large deck and gas grill for cookouts under the night sky. The master bedroom on the second floor has a private balcony for two and the back garden has a second patio area suitable for sunbathing or just relaxing. And talk to us if you are interested in pool access.

For guests that may need to work while they're away, we have an in-home office that includes a phone/printer/scanner/copier and high speed Wi-Fi. Please contact us if you need more information as we offer additional work-from-home capabilities.

Easy stroll to Dolphin Village for groceries or to drop in to a CVS drugstore. Across the street is a popular pancake house, a well-known dinner spot and a liquor store .

The beach also has free transportation services and if you want to explore, a trolley stop is few steps from our front door to take you wherever you want to go.

The home has been in our family for over 60 years and holds a special place in our hearts. We still live on the beach and make sure this charmer is kept in excellent condition for our guests' enjoyment.

About The Owner

I am a beach girl in my heart, love swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, walks on the beach, fantastic sunsets, and the sand between my toes. This home has been in our family for over 60 years and we are delighted to share it with our guests. We think you'll find it as special as we do.

The Owner purchased this house in 1951

Why The Owner chose St Petersburg Area

It's one-of-a-kind home! It offers a quiet retreat moments from a pristine beach and nestled among all the great attractions - giving you the best of both worlds.

It is a true beach home with all the comforts of today's living. Spend your day with sand in your toes or read a book on the back deck after a morning swim. In the evening, take a stroll to the local restaurant for dinner and ice cream. But don't miss the sunset! They are spectacular and no one is the same!

What makes this house unique

This is a well-cared for and loved home that has been in our family for more than 60-years. We want you to have that home away from home feeling when you stay here.

We are close to everything so enjoy walking everywhere you need to go. And given our great location, we have many families stay with us as a retreat from all the wedding activity at the hotel; it's great for those looking to relax throughout all the celebrations!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Roses are red, beach life is great. Forget all your worries, erase your full slate. This beach house is perfect, it has lots of charm. Inside you'll feel safe, protected from harm. Check out the beaches, both near and afar. Take home some sand - fill up a jar. Use the grill once, or maybe twice. Shrimp on the barbie - it's really quite nice! Walk to the corner - Freakie Tiki is there. You'll find some cool stuff, and much you can wear. Sleep in till noon, or get up at dawn. Either way after sunset, you'll start to yawn. This place was perfect for these four pals. Come with your buddies - the best for us gals! Debbie the owner loves this place best. Living here's easy, and leaving's a test. Look for the cat - she often comes round. Don't worry about noises - the cat makes the sound. Thank you for sharing a home filled with love. We used all the corners like a hand fits a glove. We plan to return, and sit in the sun. Sadly for us, our week is now done.

Cozy beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at the beach house and as always we found it spotless and well equipped. One trip to the grocery store and you're set to enjoy the beach or discover many of the local activities. The location is ideal as the highways are very easy to connect to. One of our favorite things to do in the early morning is to walk to Pass A Grill for a coffee. It's a 45 min walk there but well worth it as this beach is pristine and shell hunting is a must along the way. The owners have provided a book that takes the guess work out of where to eat and hot spots to discover. We highly recommend Agave a Mexican restaurant only 2 mins away by car and very reasonable prices. Don't leave the beach without booking a sunset sail that leaves from the Publixs grocery store mall. Captain Dan and his crew ensure that the evening will be memorable and you can bring a bottle of wine along for the ride. When you're exhausted from all the adventures you can always head back to the beach house for a BBQ on the Webber grill and relax in the fully equiped family room and watch a movie. The owners are very accommodating, you'll want to return again every year.

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for our son's wedding, which was at the Grand Plaza. The house is very nice and well equipped, and the location was very close to the wedding venue and just a short walk to the beach. We had 5 adults and a baby and were very comfortable. There were beach chairs, umbrellas, and kids toys provided that we used several times. I would recommend this home for anyone to stay in.

Awesome Beach House for a great beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week's stay at this renovated beach house! Cleanliness is an understatement when describing this well- maintained treasure. We could not have been more pleased the accommodations and the gracious hospitality rendered by the owner who lives close-by and was more than willing to make sure all of our needs were met. There were beach towels, beach chairs, a small cooler, an umbrella and a host of other necessities available for our use. The proximity to the beach is a hop, skip and a jump. Local restaurants and grocery stores are all within walking distance or a short drive away. I would highly recommend this to others for a wonderful beach vacation!

Amazing House - had an awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

First off the house and location are just perfect, exactly as described and very spacious. I was there with my 3 sisters and my son and nephew who are both 22 and we all had plenty of room. The location is amazing, a few steps from the house and you are on the beach which was just great since when it got too hot on the beach we just went back to the house for lunch. We just has a great time all around and I would definitely recommend this house for any family that just wants to have a relaxing and great time in a house next to the beach.

While we were there we went to the Spinners restaurant on the roof of the Grand Plaza and the food was amazing and the view awesome, get pictures.

I would stay there again anytime and I would recommend you do also.

Lovely Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful beach house! It was a perfect location for us. A very short stroll to the beach and restaurants and an even shorter walk to the wedding venue of my niece's wedding. Our entire family came to St Pete for my niece's wedding at The Grand Plaza Hotel. Most of our extended family rented small condos or stayed at the hotel. They were all jealous of "our" beach house.

The owners were very cool people! They came to the beach house our first morning there to let us back in because we accidentally locked ourselves out. They were so nice about it and showed up with in minutes. They even took us on a tour of the house and told us about some of the history of the place. Very cool!

The owners attention to detail did not go unnoticed or unappreciated by my family. They had provided everything you could ever need to enjoy your stay in the house and at the beach.

Thank you so much for sharing your slice of heaven with our family! We are looking forward to coming again!
