About the property

3 br/3 ba, heated private pool & dock, waterfront, near downtown & beaches

Bayside Breezes, Beach Dr St Pete:

Enjoy your stay in this amazing, completely renovated home. Updated with classic elegant Florida style. This home is sunny, bright, an open floor plan, with an all new gourmet kitchen, beautiful terrazzo floors, beadboard ceilings, tasteful furnishings and luxurious amenities. You won't believe the resort style heated pool surrounded by a large travertine patio, professionally designed landscaping and new dock. Located in a very quiet, peaceful neighborhood - this house is perfect for families and couples to get away from it all and relax. It's just a quick drive to downtown St Pete or the beautiful gulf beaches.

Whether your ideal vacation is hours relaxing by the pool with a book or splashing around with the kids, fishing off your private dock, kayaking Tampa Bay from just outside your back door, or taking in all the cultural events in downtown St Pete - you'll find it here! Pontoon boat available for rent!

The house is designed and furnished to be spacious and comfortable - with modern amenities like voice activated smart home features (echo dot personal assistant, security, lighting, and more) and free wifi (high speed fiber optic). The master bedroom includes a king size bed, attached bath with walk in shower, and a sitting room overlooking the backyard pool and canal. In the master bath you'll find a Japanese style electric bidet toilet seat. The first guest room contains two twin beds (which can be pushed together for a king). The sailing themed guest room has a queen size bed and queen size trundle bed, allowing up to 4 guests. The two guest rooms share a hall bath with tub/shower combination and double sinks. Off the large living room, you'll find a sunroom, perfect for games, puzzles or just taking in the view. The ample seating includes a twin daybed with twin trundle.

The outdoor living space truly sets the property apart. There's a covered patio with ceiling fan, a pool bath area off the patio with shower, toilet and sink (perfect way for a quick clean up without going through the house). Under the large shade awning, you can sit, relax, and enjoy the pool and water views, delight in watching the mullets leap from the water or watch the great herons care for their nest of new baby birds in the tree nearby. We've seen many manatees and dolphins right off the dock, which is the perfect spot to try some fishing. You'll find an outdoor kitchen with grill and sink along with comfortable seating for dining or lounging. In the winter, sit by one of the two outdoor fire pits and watch the stars.

The house and furnishings are remarkably comfortable and we've gone to great lengths to add amenities to help make your stay memorable. There are games, puzzles, movies, pool toys, a poolside basketball hoop, pool loungers, sit atop and sit in kayaks (total of 6 available for rent), coolers, beach chairs, etc. The kitchen has a number of spices and staples that will help avoid those last minute trips to the grocery store.

We keep our 34 foot sailboat at the dock for our personal use. Vacation guests are not allowed to board the sailboat and should be aware that there's a small chance that the owners will access the yard to use the boat or use the poolside bathroom (we live out of town so this is not a common occurrence). Our priority is for you to feel at home and delighted with your stay - so we'll do all we can to preserve your privacy at all times.

About Amy (Beach to Mountains Rentals)

An Eckerd College grad, I've missed the beautiful waterfront area of St Petersburg and bought this home in anticipation of retiring in the area. My family and I love the home, the area and all the wonderful waterfront activities nearby. I'm a professional home renovator and designer and love to include unique high end features in the homes I renovate. This home is my vision of a tropical waterfront paradise.

Amy (Beach to Mountains Rentals) purchased this house in 2015

Why Amy (Beach to Mountains Rentals) chose St Petersburg

We love the canal, the access to Tampa Bay (yet still protected from storm surges on open water), the lovely pool, tropical landscaping and classic Florida style. Close to everything St Pete has to offer - yet secluded on a quiet residential island. A perfect getaway to connect with friends and family.

What makes this house unique

The breezes are delightful and the area is much like a bird sanctuary with great herons, egrets, cormorants, pelicans, wild parrots and more. Mullets leap out of the water and make splash landings all day long and often manatee and dolphin swim right up to the dock. Rays can be seen in the water along with many species of fish.

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

First, Amy was always in communication; much appreciated. The house was perfect for us. Great location; only about 3 miles from downtown. Amy had great recommendations for restaurants and places to visit. We really enjoyed the pool and the expansive patio area surrounding it. The house is very well equipped, exceptionally clean, and unlike many rentals everything works. So many good restaurants nearby as well as the Saturday farmers market and two nature areas. Probably the best way we can express our enjoyment is to say we are planning to come back next April. This house is a gem.

Incredibly lovely and serene property!

  • 5 of 5

After having difficulty initially finding a place to stay in St. Pete, we lucked out by having Amy's property recommended to us, through a friend of hers. We are so glad she did! It is a beautiful property, nicer than what the pictures capture. All the amenities you could hope for. We were a family of 8 ages 15-94. We had plenty of room and very comfortable sleeping accommodations. We loved spending time out on the patio, at the pool and on the dock fishing. We caught several fish. We loved watching the heron couple that have a nest in a nearby tree. But be warned, one of them, the male I suspect, will try to get your fish as you catch it. (That's just like a man!) :) Anyway you will fall in love with them, so that when he gives you that look, you will likely willingly give up your fish. We cooked outdoors on the gas grill and it was great! Indoors the induction stove and well equipped kitchen making your cooking experiences very pleasurable. Kayaks, paddleboards and bicycles were available for use. The home is very close to downtown St. Pete and the beach areas. Amy has done a wonderful job of decorating and landscaping. Very quiet when you are sitting outdoors. Nice heated pool. Amy was a pleasure to work with and always prompt to respond to any questions. Would absolutely stay in this lovely home again and look forward to a return visit!

Very Nice Stay in St Petersburg

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this property in St. Petersburg. The home was very clean and very well stocked. The pool was a ton of fun for the kids to swim in, and nice and warm with the added pool heat. The kitchen had every gadget and tool you could ever hope for! There was even plenty of sand toys, lawn chairs & a cooler to take to the beach. Amy was extremely helpful - whenever I had a question or concern, she got back to me almost immediately and was very pleasant to work with.

perfect vacation house!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third February in St Pete, but our first in this house. It was just right in every way, on a canal and in a quiet neighborhood and yet ten minutes from bustling downtown St Pete. The pool is beautiful, and kayaking in Tampa Bay was great. Abundant bird life and several sightings of dolphins. The kitchen is fabulous for anyone who loves to cook, and the open floor plan suited us very well. Great restaurants in town, from local ethnic and inexpensive to more sophisticated and pricey (Birch and Vine).

We cooked some wonderful dinners on the grill with friends, and sat out by the pool watching the stars come out or down on the dock with coffee in the mornings. A couple of small issues were immediately resolved by a text to Amy (owner) but basically everything was problem-free.

The only down part was having to leave this beautiful place!
