Overview

About the property

WILL BE AVAILABLE MARCH 31ST THIS YEAR ONWARD######!!!WALK TO THE BEACH New###!!1/2 Price NEW LISTING for the Bay Area beaches. Warm Sunny beach days is all we see. I only have availability!!!!#### because my regular winter guest is having a serious health issue. The demand for fully furnished vacation rentals around here is overwhelming in winter, with little or none available. IT IS A SHAME THAT THIS PLACE IS GOING VACANT THIS MONTH when people are experiencing blizzard conditions, buried in 7 feet of snow and here we are in the sun on the beaches. Jan 9th, 2017 Weather- 49 states have snow on the ground and only Florida does not. Even Hawaii wasn't spared

As of now, it is available for any Snow birds from up north, Canada & international guests, escaping the bitter cold.#### Available 2017 for Baseball training fans or vacationers

As described it is 1.3 miles from the Main entrance to the beach. WALK to the Quiet Beaches- Private wing of an appealing house in a newer subdivision. The unit has a kitchenette & additional half bath (pool bath), has a Private Entrance with a large High Fenced yard. Enjoy the Jacuzzi & Large pool or Sunbathe, all with privacy & no sharing. The pool, Jacuzzi, deck etc. are all yours. It is like your own pool. The Entrance has an electronic Lock for security & keyed door on the unit. No other guests. Unlike a Condo or an Apartment, there is no occupied area on any of the six sides of this rental. One unused area southside. It is similar to a duplex, not a shared residence. There are no shared areas. The pool, Jacuzzi, deck etc. are all yours with unhindered privacy

Want to Just Let Go, Escape and Relax, then this house would be ideal. Not a concrete, rectangular, filing cabinet accommodation like the other vacation units. Once you try it, you may never stay in a hotel again. Welcome to Corporate travelers on business like me, sick of hotels.

This is a home away from home without 'Honey to do chores' Relax with green grass, flowers & fresh water on both sides. Come down here and decompress and get revitalized. PRICED VERY LOW TO GET GUESTS & REVIEWS – NEW LISTING to the online rental websites.

Full wood floor in bedroom & large Walk-in- Closet. w Shelves for Luggage etc., Queen Bed Set, Sealy Posturepedic Mattress, Leather Lounger with Ottoman, Desk. Wall mounted (extendable and multi-directional) 32” Hi-Def TV (With USB and HDMI inputs for your computer tablets, laptops, stream UTube exercise routines & other video devices, cable, (sometimes PPV & Premium channels are Free). Use Streaming services Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV: Telephone Full high-speed internet/Wi-Fi & more –Save on your phone voice, text, and data (streaming). Ask if you need a CAT 5 plug in (Connection)

House is on the water (Classified Water Front) Buiding has 5 windows facing a large pond that looks like a lake. Close to the beach. Enjoy the greenery & escape to a peaceful, beautiful neighborhood.

The rental is comparable to any superior hotel, accommodation. Bath has a relaxing Tub, Pool (Large), Jacuzzi (heat-extra), almost lap size pool, Large Sunning Deck, Large Canopy deck with Outdoor Table for six. Some with ottomans. All 6 chairs with arms, convert to Lie Flat Lounger with cushions. Another table with an umbrella has four chairs.

The kitchen/kitchenette has 2 burners for cooking with double coils for a barbecue. (Coverts to four burners if needed) a sink, cabinets, coffee maker, toaster oven, Lighted Microwave with Turntable. Pots, Pans, cutlery, plates, glasses etc. and next to the room. Lighted Refrigerator is 2 doors. The freezer can take Pizza & full-size Ice cream containers & doors can hold large2-liter soda bottles, Wine bottles, unlike the very limited ones found in resorts. Three sides of Kitchenette are Walled and the fourth open towards the pool. (Fun thing to do on a vacation & barbecuing). For the most part, guests are delighted they don't have to cook in or adjacent to a bed area and stink up the beds. Those are generally the poorer quality accommodations. The unit is comparable to a Duplex, nothing shared. The Cooktop is a Jenn-Air. Downdraft Electric, 4 burners with 2 coils interchangeable to a barbecue. The oven is a countertop large enough for cooking a lamb shank.

Senior citizen guests, handicapped and not so mobile as a courtesy and at request are given the use of the laundry and also the use of the other well-equipped spacious Handicapped, accessible Kitchen (cooking range, oven (stove), microwave, toaster, dishwasher, table top oven, blender etc.) or dinette in the main house. There are 2 laundromats within a mile from the house. The sheets and Towels are usually laundered once a week if requested.

Short walk or drive to the beaches with fairly good parking. Subdivision - Collins Estates, with relatively luxurious newer houses. People biking, walking, jogging, skateboarding, and non-nosy or noisy neighbors. Nearby by entertainment, include restaurants, bars, pubs, a lounge & a night club. Close proximity to drug stores, gas stations, groceries (with a bakery), banks, five fast food with drive-throughs (All walking distance approximately), Starbucks, Five guys, Jimmy John’s, Subway, 2 gyms, Pizza, Chinese and more.

Perfect location for sight-seeing, live music, golfing, biking/jogging trails, shopping, boating and all water activities including Paragliding, boat & Jet Ski rentals.

World drive in Orlando to Disney's Epcot, Magic Kingdom, Blizzard Beach, Animal Kingdom is 64 miles from Tampa & another 20+ to Bay Area beaches, where this house is. Most people staying here drive up morning & come back in the night. You could stay here instead of Orlando, for your entire visit & save a bundle

Close to most major attractions: 1.75 miles to bike path and city park. 3 min. drive to great shops, numerous restaurants, outdoor bars/pubs, restaurants 15 mins. to Clearwater Beach (many awards) & Aquarium 25 mins. to quaint town of Dunedin *40 mins. to St. Petersburg and St. Pete Beach *40 mins. from Tampa, Int'l Airport *50 mins. to Bush Gardens *55 mins to Sarasota *90 mins to Disney/SeaWorld/Universal (Orlando has many theme parks), day boat trips for fishing/dolphin watching & lunch/evening dining.

A Beach Trolley (stop is 1.6 Miles), runs through several beaches from Pass-A-Grille/St. Pete Beach to Clearwater Beach. Beach cabs do come here and charge $5 for 2.5 miles. That will take you to Indian Rocks, Indian Shores, Redington & Belleair Beach. $10 will get you to Madeira, John's Pass Village and Boardwalk. Treasure Island. Use UBER or LYFT (PRIVATE CAR services) almost HALF price OF CABS Served by 2 international airports and Amtrak.

Smoking is permitted ONLY in outside patio and pool area.If you need beach chairs, beach towels, bikes (have to get them into shape) please ask.

FREE PARKING- with 2 off-road spots. Plenty of parking

Minimum Rental: 6 nights (Even if you choose to stay less) FOR A SMALL DOG OR A YOUNG KID ASK. Extra charges $12 apply and for short stay guests beyond 2. Hospitality is an imperative requirement for all the rental websites I post, advertise or list on and none of them are cheap.

I am really at half price

NEW LISTING TO VRBO. I HAD A CONDO - VACATION RENTAL ON THE BEACH. TRY OUT THIS HOUSE AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY YOU DID. I have traveled to over 100 countries on work & vacation and stayed in the smallest of Pensiones & homes from Brazil to Australia & know what I takes to host. Many shared common rooms

Found many travelers DON’T LIKE FILING CABINET (BOX) TYPE REGULAR RECTANGULAR HOTELS & ROOMS & especially for stays over 3 or more days. Welcome to the fans who come down for the Major-League baseball training camps

The price for this place with all the amenities is much below any comparable accommodation around here. All guests so far have expressed that it is more than they expected and have referred their family & friends. Making a guest contented is a priority.

Must be 35 years or older, give or take a few years. A bylaw Requirement Ask before booking.

Rates do vary, usually only $10 to $18 according to demand. Weekend rates may apply for events. Fees, quite often none (Zero), vary by the number of occupant’s and holidays. Weekend rates apply only to guests for less than a month stay. I give discounts for longer stays & single occupation.

Please call if your reservation request is urgent & a requested property falls thru. IF YOU CALL & MISS ME, PLEASE LEAVE A MESSAGE (don't hang up) WITH THE EXACT DATES YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AVAILABILITY. MUST CALL IF YOUR STAY STARTS ANYTIME IN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS.

For those inquiring, the pool has logos of 2 dolphins, mother & baby turtles on the steps are mosaic tiles in the pool.

For the season, all payments are due at time of booking, (even if it is booked the end of previous season). The demand for rentals is overwhelming in winter, with little or none available. If a renter cancels I lose badly in the peak season and it could remain vacant. There are actually small margins in these rentals. The winter season is the only time we get in the black (money wise) for the year. Travel Insurance is strongly recommended and more so during the peak months, for any change of plans.

The getaway from the bitter cold, winds & snow to this beach area, starts about mid-October every year.

Try this place. You will be glad you did

Why irwin chose Largo

NEW LISTING TO VRBO. I HAD A CONDO - VACATION RENTAL ON THE BEACH. TRY OUT THIS UNIT AND YOU WILL BE HAPPY YOU DID. I have travelled to over a 100 countries on work & vacation and stayed in the smallest of Pensiones & homes from Brazil to Australia & know what It takes to host..

What makes this house unique

Found many travelers DON’T LIKE FILING CABINET TYPE REGULAR RECTANGULAR HOTELS. ROOMS. This is not a concrete jungle, like the condos up & down these Bay Area beaches. Here you have green grass, plants, flowers, trees and a fresh water & considered water front. Water on one side & look out from the opposite window is blue water again from the large pool.

The price for this place with all the amenities is much below all other comparable vacation rentals available around here. All guests so far have expressed that it is more than they expected and have referred their family & friends, and I am really at 1/2 price. With 2 people occupying for this price around the beaches, each works out to 1/4 of what others charge as some prices are sneakily listed as per person like the cruises

Notes:
I do not have any hidden fees. As posted on all websites the only fee that is applicable to long term renters is the $34 check/cash cleaning fee that goes directly to the agency. They check the room for any damages, inventory & bring it back to the condition owner rented it. Costs me $60, but I have to keep it competitive. Pets $4.50/night/per pet, reduced to $3.50 for monthly rentals. Long Weekend Holidays and week $8 to $15 Extra ($ 8 extra per day for stay 7 days before, to 3 days before. $15 per day from 3 days before to 2 days after). Fees, quite often none (Zero), vary by number of occupant’s and holidays. Weekend rates apply only to guests for less than a month stay. Depending on demand all owners adjust their rates. Once booked or reserved with a STRA (Short Term Rental Agreement), no owner can adjust rates. So please book & lock in early

BEWARE!!!!!!

  • 1 of 5

BEWARE: I rented this property located in Largo, FL from a VRBO AD that states the property “accommodates (3)”, unfortunately the property consists of a (1) bedroom with (1) bed and a space heater, (1) bath), no heat, and is attached to the main house, hence a false AD. It does not sleep 3 persons, unless 1 person sleeps on the floor or in the bathtub. There are pictures of a table and chairs leading one to believe you will sit and eat at that table, which is clearly posted on the website. This is a woefully misleading false advertisement, there is no table and chairs as disclosed in the AD. In fact “after” my arrival I was instructed not to take food in the bedroom and you must eat out side. Clearly, this should be pre disclosed, the AD is clearly false there is no table and chairs!. We are just warming up here --- It gets worst -- After traveling 2.5 days, upon arrival the owner wanted more money over and above what was previously paid. As a tired traveler, I caved in and paid more, I needed rest. My original stay was for a period from January 28 to February 28, I checked out after 3 nights. It took me 3 days to find lodging its peak season - I was stuck. All of the above is documented with e-mails and text messages from the owner to me. This sad event is under investigation by numerous party's to include (credit card company, VRBO and others); the matter is in full dispute. Praise technology and the awesome "documented" path it leaves validating every communication I have had from the beginning to the end of this woefully misleading advertisement devised by the owner and VRBO. STAY CLEAR!

Great rental

Being experienced cyclist we loved this home located close to the Pinellas Trail and proximity to Walsingham, Boce Ciega and Taylor Parks plus the Gulf Beaches. A great Host Family wanting to accommodate a comfortable and enjoyable winter stay. Our suite was decorative,clean,spacious with lots of storage, quiet and comfortable..
