First class accommodations, very comfortable, clean, professionally decorated and landscaped with a modern kitchen and top of the line furnishings . Just my wife and I stayed at teh cottage and it was perfect for our needs. It would also fit four comfortably, but you are limited to one bathroom. It was great having a barbecue grill, bicycles, hot tub, and pool for our exclusive use.
It is a very private setting located in a quiet residential area. Nice view of the Intercoastal waterway from the private dock, also great for viewing a variety of local wild life. You can walk to the beach, but it would take about 10 minutes. Bicycles were handy for riding to the beach or exploring the local area. We had a wonderful time, if we get back to the area again, this will be our first choice for a place to stay!
We love our stay at the Boca Ciega Cottage! What a wonderful, peaceful and quiet place. You get your own patio, dock and use of the pool. The house was very clean, well stocked and nicely done. My husband fished everyday! We sat on the patio, on the dock and could have sat there forever! The kitchen is on the higher end and I enjoyed cooking a few meals. Two little issues, the grill was out of gas, though Brandon from iTrip was there in 10 min!! However, we had to toss out our dinner, because the grill burners were not working properly. It does need attention and checked on from time to time. There are two bikes for your use, which I LOVED! However, the men's bike was frozen in low gear, which is very hard to ride. We loved our stay and would definitely stay again!! The only other larger issue, is that the pool is NOT heated, which we knew before hand. But it was too cold to use. The spa is NOT heated either, so we couldn't enjoy that perk. The pool doesn't get much sun, so unless it's summer it would be hard to use. But it would not stop us from coming back!!! Two really good restaurants within walking distance, Dockside Dave's and Mario's!! Both excellent! Mario's is Italian, which I am half Italian and it was a fantastic meal! And Tiramisu is amazing!! The Cottage is a wonderful home, away from home!!
Immaculately kept inside and out with every detail in place to feel like home. Add the spectacular water views and proximity to the beach and you have found a true sliver of paradise. I have rented many homes/condos in the past twenty years or so and this one goes on top of the list!
Everything was perfect. Totally relaxing. Beautiful pool. Wonderful kitchen. Beaches were perfect. Great places to eat and shop. I have already recommended it to my sister in law!
Excellent accommodation, exactly as the listing described. I would most certainly come again. The location was good. The pool was very nice and the docks were lovely.
What a fantastic property in a wonderful location. We would describe the area as beach bum nouveau chic......relaxing, easy to get around, with a paradise-like pool setting and a one block walk to the beach, and stores and restaurants nearby.
Had a chance meeting with the owner.....a Prince of a fellow......who couldn't do enough to help make out stay fantastic.
The iTrip people were excellent too.....had an issue with a TV remote to which they responded quickly and we were back in business watching the Olympics again in no time.
Home is clean, welcome and Cosey, with all the required accoutrements. A pool is out back.....almost spa like.......which made having breakfast and laying around her back that much more enjoyable.
Suggestions: a kayak for use by residents would be ideal. Also, water pressure in the ONE bathroom needs to be addressed.....shower is fine but sink flow is painfully weak. Also....mattresses are soft, likely need to be changed, but other than that....not a bad thing to say about this wonderful home! We would return for sure.
My family and I have stayed here 4 times in the last 3 years and I can honestly say that it is our favorite place to stay in Florida. My husband's family is in the St. Pete area and we go to visit 1-2 times a year. We started staying here over Thanksgiving week a few years ago and haven't rented another house since. We were just down for a week in July and even though it was one of the hottest on record, the amazing pool and the docks on the bay provided a much needed break from the heat and the views are awesome. There are only 3 of us, so the 2 bedroom 1 bath suits us perfectly; however, there is nothing cramped about this beautiful place. Both my son and I love to cook and we are able to make great dinners for family and enjoy the beautiful settings both inside and outside. My only reservation in writing this review is that I am afraid that this place will not be available for us to rent when more people learn about it because it is honestly that fantastic. I can't stress enough how great this house is and the management company that runs it. Highly, highly recommended!!!
