Hammock Bay is truly an OASIS!

  • 5 of 5

It’s a quick ride from the Tampa airport and a perfect location from the beach and Downtown St. Pete’s. Once we arrived, Kevin the home manager gave us a warm welcome and a tour of what the home had to offer. Right when you walk in, the backyard steals the show. It’s a great yard for a big group to grill, enjoy the pool, the grass space, and lounge on the pool chairs- all at once. There's a wonderful large table outside where you can set up breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Wildlife WILL pass by (took selfies with some of the birds). The inside of the home is decorated beautifully and has everything you need. The beds are well equipped and if you need more sheets, pillows, or blankets- you’ll find them in the closets. The living room area is also great and has a comfortable sofa. As for the kitchen, AMAZING! You’ll find enough room to cook and all kitchen essentials are provided. The home was EXTREMELY clean and well kept. If you ever want to pick up a few things from a supermarket or drug store you’ll find them nearby (walking distance). Chill, a restaurant a few blocks away has a great Sunday brunch selection with a buffet and live music.

The 5 of us truly enjoyed our stay at Hammock Bay and I know you will too! Highly recommend and will book again!

Restful waterfront views with private pool.

  • 5 of 5

We were there in mid-March 2017: 6 middle-aged siblings who left our spouses at home to enjoy some quality family time. The house could not have been more perfect. Located on a quiet street with a waterfront view facing east, we relished the sunrise every morning with coffees on the deck. The kitchen was perfectly equipped with everything needed for meals, and the outdoor grill was a bonus. A Sunday market a short walk from the house provided us with fresh bread and produce; several cute restaurants were also within walking distance. We hardly used our rental car. Dolphins, pelicans and various birds kept us entertained as we "northerners" basked in much needed sunshine and light breezes. The owners were instantly available for Q's and very responsive but nothing was needed during our stay. Parts of Fla can be quite busy with tourists and traffic but this little gem is hidden on a quiet street, just perfect for rest and relaxation. We hit the St. Pete beaches only once because patio, pool and lovely waterfront view (with hammock!) were so peaceful we didn't need to "leave home" to have fun. Highly recommended for folks who seek a well appointed home that provides a quiet oasis in which to refresh and recharge.

What a great property! Great Christmas/New Year's Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience with this property. From the day we reserved our stay the owner was in contact with us letting us know what to expect. A few days before arrival we were contacted by the property manager and he went through everything we needed to know. When we arrived it was just as advertised, if not better. Wonderful stay, wonderful owners and a great overall experience for our family.

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~
