About the property


*****!!!! I HAD A CANCELLATION FROM A GUEST FOR A SERIOUS HEALTH ISSUE. THE UNIT IS AVAILABLE### for the Father’s Day weekend. The price for this place with all the amenities is much below all other comparable available around here

Sugar Sand Beaches of a Pristine Gulf Coast. Florida’s Bay Beaches. Warm Sunny**”*Beach days and Blue Skies almost constantly in the Sunshine State of USA, even in Winter, Spring or Fall. Amazing sunsets on these West Side beaches. Want to 'Escape from the bitter cold and Relax’, then this house would be ideal to ‘Just Let Go’. Once you try it, you may never stay in a hotel or condo again. This is a home away from home without 'Honey to do’ chores. Come down here, Decompress & Get Revitalized. PRICED VERY LOW TO GET GUESTS & REVIEWS. Available for Short/Long Term ##Walk to The Beach Guests so far have expressed that it is more than they expected.

Hospitality, guest comfort & making your vacation memorable are a top priority. In winter, the demand for fully furnished vacation rentals, more so, near the beaches is overwhelming, with little or none available. Mostly the snowbirds Escaping the Cold & Snow from Up North, Canada & Europe. Most of the better places like this are booked a year before or more.

The getaway from the brutal cold, winds & snow to this beach area, starts about mid-October every year. I AM REALLY AT HALF PRICE. TRY THIS PLACE. YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID.

The price for this place with all the amenities is much below all other comparable well-furnished vacation rentals available. Please email …., if your reservation request is anytime in the next two weeks or for any reservation inquiries & for any other specific information or needs.

The rental is comparable to finer hotel, accommodation. Bath has a relaxing Tub or unwind in an outdoor Large Jacuzzi (heat is extra), almost lap size pool, Large Sunning Deck & a Large Covered Deck with Outdoor Table for six. Some with ottomans. All 6 chairs with arms, convert to Lie Flat Lounger with Cushions. Another table with four chairs & an umbrella options. Need white table cloths & candles, just ask.

Found countless travelers DON’T LIKE FILING CABINET TYPE REGULAR RECTANGULAR HOTEL ROOMS WITH GUESTS ON 4 SIDES. This place is not a concrete jungle multi-floored unit on stilts, like the condos up & down these Bay Area beaches. No late-night drunks or pool screaming kids either. Here you have green grass, plants, flowers, trees & freshwater. Home considered Water Front. Water on one side & other side is blue water from the large pool. The unit has Ice Cold or Heated, dedicated remote-control. Mini Split Air AC system. No allergy prone duct air. Remote & Wifi app. Too many benefits to list

As described it is 1.3 miles from the entrance of the development, to the beach. 1.6 miles from the house. WALK to the Quiet Beaches. A Private wing of an appealing house in a newer subdivision. It has a Private Entrance with a Vinyl High Lattice Fenced yard. The Entrance has an Electronic Lock for security & keyed door on the unit. No other guests. Unlike a Condo or an Apartment. One unused area south side. It is comparable to a duplex. No shared areas like apartments. The unit has a kitchenette & an additional half bath (pool bath). Enjoy the Jacuzzi & Large pool or Sunbathe, all with unhindered privacy & no sharing. It is like your own pool.

VRBO/Homeaway listed in 'GET IN SOME POOL TIME ANYTIME' 'whether you’re into laps or lying out, nothing says vacation like the pool. Skip crowded hotel scenes and book a house with your very own watering hole instead. You’ll love the freedom and never be having to hunt for an open lounge chair again. AND IF YOU PICK A PLACE WITH AN OUTDOOR GRILL, YOU’LL HAVE ATTAINED VACATION PERFECTION.' This is the sunshine state. Catch fish, barbecue steaks, pork chops, lamb shank, ribs, chicken, seafood & it is cooked in seconds. Condos balconies are prohibited by fire departments to have a grill.

A full Wood Floor in bedroom & large Walk-in- Closet. w Shelves, chest of drawers for Luggage etc., Queen Bed Set, Sealy Posturepedic Mattress, Leather Lounger with Ottoman, Desk. Wall mounted (extendable and multi-directional bracket) 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 Full high-speed 100Mbs internet/Wi-Fi & more. Use AirPlay or Screen Mirroring on your Apple or Android phones, laptops or devices. The building has 5 windows looking at the water. Enjoy the greenery & escape to a peaceful, beautiful neighborhood.

Kitchenette has a Jenn-Air. Downdraft Electric Cooktop, 4 conventional coils, 2 interchangeable to a dual coil barbecue-very rare. The counter top oven is large enough for cooking a lamb shank. Three sides of Kitchenette are Walled and the fourth open towards the pool. A fun thing to do on a vacation & benefits of barbecuing.' Please see the picture/s. 'For the most part, guests are delighted & love that kitchenette. They don't have to cook in or adjacent to a bed area and stink up the beds. They don't need spices or other ingredients to cook. This is the sunshine state. They catch fish, buy steaks, pork chops, lamb, ribs, chicken and it is done in minutes'

Coffeemaker, Toaster, Pots, Pans, Cutlery, Plates, Wine Glasses etc. Lighted Microwave with Turntable & a 2 door Lighted Refrigerator. The freezer can take Pizza & full-size Ice cream containers & doors can hold large2-liter soda bottles & Wine bottles, unlike very limited size refrigerators found in resorts. 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 mediocre quality accommodations. Enjoy Al Fresco Dining which is always hard to find at cafes, bistros & restaurants. There is even a white tablecloth and candles available.

Plenty of parking FREE PARKING- with 2 off-road spots. Minimum Rental: 7 days (Even if you choose to stay less). I post, advertise or list on many vacation rental websites and none of them are cheap. Extra charges $12 per day apply and for short stay guests beyond 2, including small kids.

NEW LISTING TO VRBO. I HAD A CONDO-VACATION RENTAL ON THE BEACH. I have traveled to over 125 countries on work & vacation and stayed in the smallest of Pensiones & homes from Brazil to Australia & know what I takes to host. Guests must be 35 years or older, give or take a few years and dogs cannot exceed 39 pounds in weight - A By-law Requirement. Rates do vary, usually only $10 to $18 according to demand. Weekend rates may apply for events. FEES, OFTEN ZERO. Varies by the number of occupant’s & holidays. Weekend rates apply only to guests for less than a month stay. I Give Discounts for Longer Stays & Single Occupation. You will see FEES IN THE QUOTE THAT DO NOT APPLY TO YOU & will be adjusted. All fees need to be declared, LEGALLY even a fee that is remotely possible. The guest can claim that they were asked for more money than quoted or posted

For the season, all payments are due at time of booking, (even if it is booked the end of the 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. Not wheelchair Accessible & Not suitable for Assistive Walking Devices or Walkers. TRIP INTERRUPTION & CANCELLATION INSURANCE is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED especially during the peak months, for any change of plans.


Short walk or drive to the beaches. Subdivision - Collins Estates, with relatively luxurious newer houses. People biking, walking, jogging, skateboarding, and non-nosy or noisy neighbors. Nearby by entertainment, including restaurants, bars, pubs, LIVE MUSIC, a lounge & a nightclub. 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. Grub hub delivery and better still is Otto's Beach Delivery (food from any beach/off beach restaurant), Largo Public Golf Course – 2 miles. Uber Eats, Foodnow, Bitesquad delivers food from many restaurants. Take-out Menus, sightseeing, activities brochure & website 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+ Tampa to Bay Area beaches the location of this house is. Most people staying here, drive up the morning to Orlando & come back in the night.

Close to most major attractions: 1.75 miles to the 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 the quaint town of Dunedin *40 mins. to St. Petersburg and St. Pete Beach *90 mins to Disney/SeaWorld/Universal (Orlando has many theme parks), day boat trips for fishing/dolphin watching & lunch/evening dining.

PSTA mini terminal (1.3 Miles), nearby takes you all smaller cities between the larger St, Petersburg, and Clearwater.

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, Ind

Why irwin chose Collins Estates


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 waterfront. Water on one side & look out from the opposite window is blue water again from the large pool. VRBO/Homeaway offers Property Damage Protection. Guests need to have this or a refundable damage deposit of $350. This deposit is waived at owner’s discretion. The refundable deposit or damage insurance is mandatory when accompanied by a pet or child under 10. One benefit is that the Minimum Age for Renters is 30 Years - Association Requirement - only exception Children and grandchildren 10 years or younger are permitted.

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.

I do not have any hidden fees. As posted on all websites the only fee is $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. VRBO offers Property Damage Protection Insurance or a refundable damage deposit of $350 is needed. Pet fee $4.50/night. Only one small or lap dog not exceeding 39 Pounds permissible. Fee reduced to $3.50 for monthly rentals. Long Weekend Holidays $8 to $18 Extra (for 3 days before to 2 days after). Fees are not applicable in most cases. If applicable, vary by the 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. Travel Cancellation and/or Interruption Insurance is strongly recommended .

Exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a 2 week stay while we were between houses. The property was well kept and we had no complaints. They were very accommodating to our little dog Beatrice - even giving her a treat on occasion. I would recommend the property to any out-of-towners wishing to be in close proximity to the beach and coastal life. Can't ask for a better location!
