About the property

Two bedroom, one bath, single family home with a Florida Room and screen porch.

Welcome to Gulf Breeze Home. A one story, 2 bedroom home located just minutes from the Intercoastal Highway, World famous John's Pass, Pinellas Trail, shopping malls and many gulf shore beaches (Clearwater, Madeira, Indian Shores, Redington, St Pete and many more). Gulf Breeze features 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, a Florida room and screened in porch.

Gulf Breeze offers many amenities to make your vacation relaxing including beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach toys, croquet, a gas grill and two beach cruiser bikes.

World famous John's Pass is a 10 minute drive and offers beaches and a variety of shopping and restaurants. Rent a jetski, go fishing, take a dinner cruise, watch the dolphins play while eating dinner on the boardwalk or stop for a wine freeze at the Florida Winery.

The master bedroom features a comfortable memory foam king size bed with a double closet for plenty of room for your clothes. The second bedroom features a comfortable memory foam queen size bed and double closet.

The open living and dining room is spacious and you can sit back and relax from an exhausting day of laying on the beach and features a 40 inch flat screen HD TV, cable and wireless Internet access (WiFi).

The Florida Room offers a pull out couch with a full size memory foam mattress. A breakfast table will allow you to enjoy your morning coffee and breakfast while watching the birds, the butterflies and the lizards.

The screened in porch offers a patio table and chairs for outside dining while listening to the beautiful sounds of the Florida birds. Relax on the patio with your morning coffee or tea and enjoy the Florida sunshine while the kids or pets play in the fenced yard, chasing after the little lizards.

The kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, dishes, toaster, coffee maker, microwave and much more. Coffee, cream and sugar are provided in the pantry for your arrival.

The laundry room is equipped with a full size washer and dryer for drying your wet bathing suits and towels.

There is a carport to keep your car out of the warm Florida sun.

The back yard is fully fenced with a 6 foot privacy fence so no need to walk the dog several times a day. However, you may enjoy a walk through the lovely neighborhood with a multitude of birds, cranes, lizards and squirrels.

The locks are changed after each guest and the lock box code you are given to access the house is individualized and never the same. No cleaning people or contractors will ever have a key to the house. As the property owners, we respect your privacy and value your security.

About Joe and Julia Breheny

We live in Seminole, Florida, so should you need anything during your stay we are here for you. We moved to Florida from upstate New York after visiting Central Florida over a 5 year period. We fell in love and have lived here since November 2013.

Joe and Julia Breheny purchased this house in 2014

Why Joe and Julia Breheny chose Seminole

We chose this property for a vacation rental business because of the proximity to beaches, parks, amusement parks and so much more.

What makes this house unique

The Florida Room and screened in porch are a wonderful asset to this home. You feel like you are outside in either room with the protection from the rain, heat, bugs or sun.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home. The Florida room and enclosed patio were wonderful also. The fenced in yard was great for our kids and dogs. Very close to beaches and close to stores and restaurants. Everythring we needed was stocked in the house for us when we arrived. Joe and Julia were great, we would recommend anyone to stay in one of their properties.

Loved Seminole Lake Park

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great. The layout of the house made good use of space throughout. The enclosed yard was good for the dog. Everything we needed was provided. Nearby local parks were wonderful, good seafood markets, the Italian market, restaurants nearby, etc were all a plus. Thank you.

A great vacation at Gulf Breeze

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent an enjoyable two weeks vacation at Gulf Breeze in Seminole Florida. Joe and Julia are very accomadating hosts and this is our second stay with them. The house was very clean and stocked with everything to make for a comfortable stay. The neighborhood is very nice and it is close to the beaches and parks. Shopping and restaurants are also close by. This is a good location for a young family as well as those of us who are retired. We look forward to another stay in the future.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Gulf Breeze home for ~ 4 months while I completed my internship, and our time here has been wonderful. Joe and Julia are accommodating, while still providing ample privacy for their guests. The home is cozy, well-maintained, and has all the amenities we could have wished for. The location is in a quiet neighborhood, and there is plenty of room in the house to entertain guests when needed. The Florida room was perfect for studying/relaxing, and my cat absolutely loved the screened patio and enclosed backyard! Aside from the beaches, there is also a great park nearby to exercise and take long walks (Lake Seminole) :) This home has exceeded our expectations, and I would highly recommend this property to others.

Another wonderful vacation stay

  • 5 of 5

Our return stay at Gulf Breeze Home was just as enjoyable as last year. The home was immaculate and equipped with everything that is needed to make a month long stay pleasant and relaxing. We especially enjoyed the large fenced yard and the screened lanai. The quiet neighborhood and proximity to shopping added to the overall experience. Thanks again Joe and Julia for a great vacation.
