The property has a large front and backyard for children and is one of the hottest spots for fishing or to observe many species of wildlife including dolphins and manatees right off your private dock! Catch and cook your dinner in your oversized kitchen or outside on the grill. Eat your delectable delights either outdoors as the sun sets or inside in air conditioned comfort!

Take the short stroll to the beach, or take advantage of the complimentary beach shuttle. On most nights and weekends, listen to live music on the beach and enjoy the most breathtaking sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico.

Fantastic House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Hammock Bay property! We felt like we had our own little resort in Florida. Great pool, beautifully landscaped and very private, with an amazing view on the bay. We had all sorts of wildlife visitors of Dolphins, cranes, pelicans, and flying fish! The house itself was beautifully decorated and the perfect amount of space. It had a TV in every room, two great central areas, one that included a great bar area overlooking the pool. We had 2 families, and we were able to put all the kids in the one large room with the blow up mattress which was great quality. The kitchen had every amenity you could possible need. You could walk to the beach or restaurants, but we also drove to other areas as well. The Pass a Grille area was probably our favorite area, and that was just a short drive down the road. We had a dedicated person to help answer any questions that we had, and that was really wonderful to have such a personal feel with any questions on the house and the area itself. We also had a great bottle of wine left for us that we enjoyed! We would highly recommend this property.

Wonderful week in South Pasadena

  • 5 of 5

8 of us spent a week at this property (4 from Chicago, 4 from Denmark). The house was absolutely fabulous. Location was quiet but close to everything. We did not go out to eat at all but chose to cook at home after making one trip to Costco in St. Petersburg and multiple stops at the nearby Publix. We were constrained by a 7 month old in the group for eating out.

The pool was excellent and the dock was a delight every morning and evening for catching small catfish and other fish. House was stocked with everything we needed. We never used the grill but kitchen was up to the highest standards of two amateur cooks in the group. Kevin responded promptly to a few questions we had but, really, there weren’t too many.

We had a great time and it was a truly memorable vacation for all. We would come back again without hesitation.

Paradise Found for tough critics!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous family vacation at this house. We traveled here with our 3 kids (Ages 9, 11 + 15) to celebrate the fourth of July week and had a wonderful time! The house is exactly as pictured and Kevin and Mariana were extremely helpful hosts and provided us all the information we needed at all times. We loved waking up and enjoying our breakfast outside and relaxing in the pool and seeing the dolphins swim past. Our favorite day was having a boat pic us up for the day and spending it on the water. We sailed up to a sand bar and hung out all day. We got back in the later afternoon and walked to the beach to watch the sunset. It was a perfect day all around. This place has something for everyone even our teenager!! We have already booked our next stay!!

Not a very restful vacation :(

  • 1 of 5

Unfortunately our stay at Hammock Bay was not as restful as we would have wished. On arrival at the front of the house, it appeared much smaller than we had anticipated ... however when we went thru the front door the vista from the living room out across the pool and onto the dock was very impressive, which took away from our initial disappointment. The house was very clean and the beds were made up nicely. The bathrooms were very very small, but clean. The kitchen was a good size and clean. Our problems began when we went to bed….because we had two teenagers (a boy and a girl), we put them in the two bedrooms beside each other and we took the 'third' bedroom. This bedroom was described as a big room which it was, but what was not said in the description is that it houses the air conditioning unit behind one of it's closet doors, behind another closet door is a washing machine and dryer and behind another closet door was sweeping brushes and buckets and sun chairs. So what this room really is, is a utility/bedroom (a converted garage). The air conditioning was so noisy neither my husband or myself could sleep, we eventually had to bunk in with our teenage kids, and that was how our sleeping arrangements remained during our week long stay. We did advise Kevin that we had a serious problem with the noise level in this room, and he promised to send an engineer. After two days the engineer had not materialised and we said to Kevin unless the engineer could physically move the air conditioning unit to another part of the house, he would not be much help to us. The BBQ is positioned in a very confined space at the side of the house, so whoever is cooking is not able to interact with the rest of the family. Finally, there are steps at the front and back of the house, we consistently were tripping on these steps because they are camouflaged by being painted the same rusty orange colour as the surrounding area, not sure if this would be ideal for elderly clientele. Overall, this was not an ideal house for our vacation.

Owner's Response: Dear Mark, We are glad that you found the house exactly as pictured. We take pride in ensuring that our pictures are up-to-date and represent the accommodations to the fullest including the condition of every single one of our rooms. Looks can be deceiving! This is a traditional Florida style ranch and the mid-century modern architecture lays out an explosively gorgeous and open view upon entry. It’s definitely our favorite part about walking into the house as well! We are sorry to hear you did not have a restful night. As you mentioned, we did in fact expeditiously send out a technician at the moment you alerted us to a potential issue. In the end, as per your request, you declined to have anyone check out the AC Unit because it was in fact in working order. Your concern about the AC Unit was the first we ever heard of this potential issue and in a very hot, tropical environment, you can imagine our primary concern was your comfort a we have had many renters prior to your stay and many there after that have had no problem with the AC Unit noise nor the use of space in the third bedroom since it is so expansive. Our property is so private and we have such a beautiful view to the bay, we have positioned the BBQ to the right of the house so that it does not obstruct the view but remains close enough to comfortably grill. The area, which is very easily accessible and approximately 6.5 meters (20 feet) wide by almost 14 meters long (40 feet), has been convenient and comfortable for all of our previous guests and the ones that stayed after you so again, we are sorry to hear this was not up to your personal liking. Since it was always our intentions to welcome all family set ups and age ranges to visit our beautiful beach town, we have surveyed our property for safety. We have had quite a few elderly couples and families with young children stay with us and no complaints to date but we appreciate you notifying us of your unique situation as safety is our primary concern. We have already taken the necessary steps to have the backyard reviewed once more. In general, we apologize you did not have a restful stay and are sorry to hear of this for the first time in your review despite our conversations. While our home is ideal for many guests, we understand that "like" is as unique as each individual on the planet! We wish you a great rest of the year and hope that you find exactly what you are looking for in your next VRBO rental. CHEERS~

Great location, everything very close by. Enjoyed drinking our coffee every morning on the dock. House had all the amenities you would need for a nice relaxing week. Mariana and Kevin were quick to respond to any questions or needs. Great relaxing vacation!

Lovely vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This house is as pictured, but the amazing bay is not that green. This home was amazing and work well for our two families, four children total. Ages of children 10, 8, 8, 5. I loved waking up every morning to grab a cup of coffee and sit on the dock. We loved enjoying all the amazing wildlife including cranes that would visit daily, pelicans that would perch on the dock post, and the dolphins that would swim past us. We loved swimming in the warm pool and lounging on the nice comfy lounge chairs. The kids loved the hammock. They house was very clean and updated. They had beach chairs and towels for us to take to the beach. There were restaurants and bars in walking distance of the home. We did have our own vehicle to get around since we had children with us. The house is set within a quiet community. There was a Winn Dixie grocery store several blocks from the home we visited often. The house had everything we needed to feel comfortable. I would definitely go back and encourage any of my family and friends to visit this home. The owner was quick to respond and pleasant to work with. Kevin who was our contact while we were down there was so helpful. We made a lot of wonderful memories. We had a great experience in St. Pete's thanks to this awesome home.
