Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)
Hi, my name is Darryl. I like the property because of the terrific sunsets nearly every evening, and it's located directly on the bay. I also like quiet Ruskin (home of the famous Ruskin tomato) with it's old school Florida charm. And if you like more activity, it's a 20 minute drive (via Port of Tampa) to Ybor City in Tampa, or a marina at St. Pete, or about an hour and a half to Orlando. I hope you enjoy the place as much as I do!!!
Darryl purchased this Cottage in 2011
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
Very nice. Enjoyed sitting by the bay watching boats, etc.
Being senior citizens, we would have appreciated being a bit closer to beaches. Still the accommodations were very nice and wonderful place to kick back and relax.
We love this little house. The views are spectacular, esp. of St. Petersburg at night. You can watch freighters, yachts, fishing boats, even sailboats on the Bay right from the comfy seats by the full wall of windows. It's always clean and welcoming with many amenities such as a wide variety of games, books, sunscreen, even umbrellas. It is fully stocked if you want to
cook. In short, it's as perfect as we have ever wanted.
Condo was very clean, well stocked, and the view was incredible. It was quiet and peaceful. Our dog loved walking down the boat ramp looking at the fish below. Cannot praise this place enough. It is like heaven on earth.
My wife and I, (along with our little min pin Elley), stayed for 26 nights starting on Jan. 5th and it couldn't have been better for us. The location is close enough to everything, yet far enough to be quiet and peaceful. Our host Darryl made sure everything was in order and there was a bottle of wine waiting for us upon arrival. The accomodations were perfect. I caught lots of fish right off the dock and the sunsets were amazing. Try the fish shack for grouper and the BBQ place on the main highway for brisket - you won't be disappointed in either. The only bad part of our trip was leaving and heading back to our home in MN, where the temp dipped to -44 while we were at Darryl's place! Thanks for everything Darryl!
Overall it is pretty much what we were looking for and what we wanted.
We were pleased with the location and furnishings.
Wonderful. Every need anticipated. Peaceful, private.
The property is stylishly decorated, landscaping well manicured. If you want to relax with a cold one and watch the sun dip below The St. Pete skyline it’s the perfect spot. If you get up early you can wTch the manatees graze about ten feet away. Or see the dolphins frolic. Or just watch the boats😋
