Born and raised in Los Angeles, I moved to Florida over a decade ago. I love to travel and I like clean, comfortable accommodations. I fell in love with the beauty of the Gulf Coast, with its clear warm water and powdery beaches.

Boutique high quality vacation rental units, Riley's Retreat is the perfect destination for the traveler seeking a relaxing setting on the water.
The best of both worlds--bayside waterfront location, just steps from the beach. We have a private boat dock available to guests and the fishing is outstanding. Grill your catch of the day on the barbeque, or throw it back and head out to one of the many great restaurants nearby. A gorgeous beach and Rick's Tiki Bar and pool are directly across the street (cross walk at our property), and public transportation (the Trolley) is just steps away.
Beautiful and wonderful place to stay. Very convenient and easy to get around. Great security too! Loved the pool and Tiki Bar each day. Owner made great restaurant suggestions when we asked. Can't wait to stay again!
Location was nice though not all that walkable with small kids. Beach across the street was fantastic. The pool, located at the property across the street was small and quite crowded but it kept the kids happy and there is a tiki bar. The storage shed is fully equipped with fishing poles, gear, boogie boards, life jackets, beach chairs and umbrellas, and even a couple of wet suits. The kids loved fishing off the docks. The shared washer and dryer, located in the courtyard were top notch! The owner was accessible and answered all of our questions. He even offered fishing tips, restaurant and jet ski rental recommendations. Overall we had a very nice time, however, I found the description on Home Away a bit misleading. I thought we were getting one house/unit with three bedrooms. When we got there I got an e-mail with two key codes to one 2 bedroom and one one bedroom unit. The units were clean and cutely decorated but the kithchens and bathrooms were tiny, especially in the one bedroom. Only the two bedroom unit had a dishwasher. There was no place for 5 of us to sit down to eat together so we ended up eating out more often than we anticipated. There was a larger unit on property that we did not see. Make sure you know which unit you are getting.
We thoroughly enjoyed are stay at Riley's Retreat. Tom, our host, was very accommodating and helpful. Our two bedroom unit was exceptionally clean and spacious and contained everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Grocery store was just down the street as well as many, various, restaurants. The beach is directly across the street from the unit with miles and miles of white sand. The dock out the back of the property was amazing and we found it so relaxing to sit out and watch the dolphins while we enjoyed our morning coffee. There was nothing there that Tom didn't think of for the guests comfort and he is always making improvements. We beached, golfed, enjoyed NHL hockey games and much more during our 2 week stay. Tom graciously took us on a boat tour of the inter coastal waterway and the gulf around Treasure Island and St. Pete's. We loved our stay so much we will definitely be returning. Thank you Tom!
What a wonderful place! With the Bay in your back yard and the Gulf right across the street, you get the best of both worlds - Sunrise & Sunsets are absolutely stunning! Very clean & private. Very well equipped. Nice gas grill onsite. Washer & dryer at no additional charge. Tons of shops, restaurants and activities within walking distance or a short car ride. We will definitely let all of our friends and family know about this place - absolutely wonderful! Tom (the owner) is a super guy! We found out that he graduated from Notre Dame - GO IRISH!! Funny, we came all the way from Indy to end up meeting someone who lived in Indiana as well. Him and his daughter came over and took us for a boat ride out in the gulf and through the bays. What a wonderful surprise! Great spot & the host with the most - thank you so much for a wonderful vacation!
We spent 10 wonderful days in Riley's Retreat with a family of 4. We found the 2BR/1ba unit to be very clean, well supplied and very comfortable. The on site facilities were exceptional and in excellent condition. We especially enjoyed the back yard/dock for fishing, swimming and relaxing. Our host were very friendly, accessible, and accommodating. They even gave us a tour of the waterways on their private boat. We were very grateful for the quick and easy access to the beach just across the street and the nearby restaurants. We definitely plan to use their property again for future visits.
My husband & I needed a few days away and wanted to visit friends in St. Pete.
Riley's Retreat was the perfect location for us. You are only 20 minutes from the St Pete Clearwater Airport or the downtown St Pete water front which is a must visit. If you were just staying at the beach, you could get by without a car there is a trolley that runs from St Pete Beach to Clearwater.
This is a 4 apt unit located on the narrowest part of Treasure Island making the beach or the bay just steps from your door. While the 1 bedroom we stayed in is not directly on the water a right turn out the door and 30 steps or so and you are in a wonderful peaceful back yard with decks, waterfalls, seawalls, grass & trees for shade & a nice dock. I spent early mornings on the dock with my coffee watching dolphins, birds & awesome sunrises.
The white sandy beach is a left turn out the front door & across the street- there is nothing like a gulf coast sunset.
The apartment was newly renovated cozy & very clean. There is a washroom right out the door also which is a huge plus.
A Publix & Walgreens are right up the street for anything you might need & there are numerous restaurants.
We spent 1 evening at Caddy's on the beach listening to live music & watching the sunset- a short .2 mile walk down the beach.
Tom's communication before during & after our stay was prompt & courteous. Refund given promptly.
This a great place for a couple wanting to distress & relax.
Thank you Tom for sharing your place!
The beach trolley stops right next to our property. Great access to all of the beaches and towns up and down the coast.
