Water Front Three Story Beach Townhouse. Beach is a 3 minute walk. 3770 sq ft total space, 2 car garage Townhouse, with 4 balconies, sunsets, sunrises, water views, beach and bay life. A guest exclaims 'Best Vacation Ever', 'We Were Delighted' review caption of another guest. You wake up to a sunrise on balconies facing Boca Ciega Bay , retire with a stunning sunset on balconies facing Redington Shores Beach, and at night this home literally bathes in shimmering moonlight water of Boca Ciega Bay. Within walking distance are fine restaurants, 2 recreational parks and a seafood -wine store. The huge bay in the back yard has a life of its own; boating, fishing from the docks, water skiing, jets skiing, water tubing, kayaking, bird watching, not to mention playful dolphins swimming by. Dine in multiple restaurants within 3 minute walking distance. The game room has ping pong/pool table and other games for young and not so young kids. It is so easy to experience precious moments of life here. Redington Shores is located between St Pete Beach and Clearwater Beach. also within easy reach is St Petersburg, known for its museums and Devil Rays Baseball and Tampa for its Performing Arts and Lightning Hockey.
Boca Ciega Bay is the backyard and Redington Shores Beach is a 3 minute walk. Townhouse has 2 west and 2 east balconies with memorable water views at sunrises and sunsets. Townhouse is located 7 miles North of St Pete Beach and about 7 miles South of Clearwater Beach on Gulf Blvd. Beach is as magical as Clearwater Beach and St Pete Beach but not as commercialized.
Mediterranean architecture inside and outside, 4 balconies, and ideal location for beach and bay life made me choose this property over others.
My family loved the house! The view from the balcony was great we had a opportunity to see dolphins on the peer which was in the back yard. Good restaurants in walking distance. Plenty of room for a family of 10. We had no issues with the house Lucy or the area! Will come back!
Overall we enjoyed the property. It definitely needs some TLC. The master bed was not a problem, but everyone else complained about their uncomfortable beds. This property is actually a 3 BR - Not 4. There is a 4th sleeping space with a full size bed on the other side of the kitchen bar/counter. We knew that thanks to other reviews before booking, so it wasn't an issue for us. But this space is not private. We had to wash the dishes before we used them as they were very dirty right out of the cabinet. Pots and Pans had old food in them. Also had to change the sheets in one of the bedrooms because the sheets looked dirty - not dingy - dirty. So not sure if the management company is getting their moneys worth from their cleaning company. I would recommend sheers for the living room windows. The view is beautiful, but sun was very bright in the morning. We saw dolphins and manatees swimming and playing in the back bay. The bay was perfect for kayaking. We didn't have any problem crossing the 4 lane road that lead to the beach. The property had a wagon that was very handy in hauling all of our beach items - it made beach time very easy. I think a lot of the beach items that were available were left by previous renters - I know we bought and left a beach umbrella, so not all of the beach chairs were in working order, but we managed. It was nice that there were things to use at the beach without having to go out right away and buy anything. We found that Surf Style had pretty descent prices for beach items that you may need to last 7 days. That is where I would buy our beach stuff next time. Redington Shores seemed to be newer and less crowded than St Petes Beach area. The sunsets were awesome!!
We booked this property two full months prior to our spring break trip. Payments were received and we had confirmation emails about our balance being paid in full. Six days prior to our trip, we emailed Lucy to find out what the check-in instructions were. She told us that our names sounded familiar, but that she did not have a reservation for us. We found this very ironic, since we had received confirmation from her email and name, both in January and in March. She offered us another one of her properties, for $100 off the original amount of the original property. Seeing that she did not admit any fault in this situation and was extremely defensive, we opted to not take her up on the other offer. We felt that she was deceitful and did not trust that anything would work out with her. From what we could tell, it seems like she does not know how to work and sync her rental property calendars. She did, however, refund us.
This property was very nice! In other reviews, I read about some uncomfortable mattresses, but they were fine to us, so possibly they were replaced. The location was ideal. The only thing I would recommend is for the owners to change the timing on the sprinklers. They went off in the mid to late afternoon! Not ideal for sitting outside. :) Otherwise, VERY NICE!
We also had a problem with the reservation. We paid and were told it was cancelled. Had to make calls with both payments to make sure that everything was ok. The garage is hard to get into if you do not have small cars. We also had problems with being blocked in the driveway and having to call Lucy or knocking on doors to get out. Lucy lives next door and also uses the property for parking. The property is in a very nice area. Beach is just across the street. Lucy was helpful with blankets and supplies that were needed. The beds are VERY uncomfortable. Everyone with us complained about the mattresses. We had part of the family the first week and a different part the 2nd week and all had the same complaint about the beds. Now we are having a problem getting back our security deposit. Keep being told will be taken care of tonight but 5 calls later no return of security deposit. Also had an issue with bugs!! Daughter freaked out when she found cockroaches. Blamed on the rain...still did not want to take them home.
