Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Collins Estates - !!!WALK TO THE BEACH-New-1/2 P

######!!!WALK TO THE BEACH New###!!1/2 Price AVAILABLE Monthly/Weekly after Thanksgiving November 27th and FOR THE WINTER 2016-17####. NEW LISTING for the Bay Area beaches. As of now, it is available for any Snow birds from up north, Canada & international guests, escaping the bitter cold. ### I only have availability because my regular seasonal guest who had reserved it from December 1st to April 15th. is having a serious health issue. ####

The demand for fully furnished vacation rentals around here is overwhelming in winter, with little or none available.

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. 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.

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. 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) 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, Sunning Deck, Large Canopy deck with Outdoor Table for 6, 14 Outdoor chairs, some with ottomans, Lie Flat Lounger with cushions.

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 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.

Senior citizen guests, not so mobile or here for monthly rentals, as a courtesy and at request are given the use of the laundry & use of the well-equipped Main 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.

Short walk or drive to the beaches with fairly good parking. Subdivision - Collins Estates, with 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 bakery), banks, fast food with drive through (All walking distance approximately), Starbucks, Five guys, Jimmy John’s, Subway, 2 gyms, Pizza, Chinese and more. Grub hub delivery and better still is Otto's Beach Delivery (food from any beach/off beach restaurant), Largo Public Golf Course – 2 miles. Take out Menus, sightseeing, activities brochure & web site links are all provided in room desk.

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 apply and for 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 travelled 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.

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. Association 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 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, as you know. 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.

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

Try this place. You will be glad you did.

Why irwin chose Indian Shores

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
