About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

This is a great getaway for a couple looking for total relaxation and privacy. White sandy beaches softened by gently swaying sea oats lie just beyond the living room picture window. A large private pool is just a few steps from the door with an expansive patio for sunbathing after a refreshing swim.

If you should want to hide from the sun, there is a covered patio with table and chairs for your morning coffee and paper--or for your picnic lunch or gourmet dinner. Be sure to allow enough time to relax and experience the glorious sunsets!

This modern, recently remodeled home has a convenient private entrance leading directly into the kitchen... no elevators to contend with while unloading luggage and groceries! The large, fully-equipped kitchen has a bar for dining, as well as a table and chairs. A bright, sunny bedroom boasts large twin closets and island-style furniture.

We really enjoyed our stay. Jack and Betsy have everything in their beach house you could possibly need while on vacation. The ocean is just steps away and beautiful, and the private pool out back is awesome. We just arrived home and already can't wait to go back sometime.

Beautiful beach home

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The property is in first-class shape and includes everything you could possibly want/need for cooking, beach, pool, etc. The beach is beautiful and right outside and the private pool was one of our favorite things. The property is also within a short walk of the John's Pass Village and Boardwalk, which has a ton of shops, restaurants, etc. Our experience with local restaurants is there are plenty of family-oriented places and the craft brew opportunities are great. The only thing we found a bit lacking was some more upscale dining options, the Middle Grounds Grill being a notable exception (very nice).

Last (but not least), the owners Jack and Betsy are super-nice people. Don't think you can go wrong with this rental. Would also recommend a Dolphin watching trip - Dolphins are pretty much everywhere!

Best VRBO house, perfect for family with baby.

  • 5 of 5

We use VRBO for all our vacations and this is one of the best finds so far. Everything was perfect! The owners are really attentive down to the smallest details of what any vacationer would need. (Fishing rods, small ice chests, plenty of towels and blankets, etc). The home has its' own off street parking (close enough to John's Pass to walk to save you the $10 parking fee). Some of our favorite details were: the keys clearly marked beside the door on lanyards making them easy to keep up with, the pool floats, the beach chairs, the towels laid out on couch to use to protect couches, the old towels to use for whatever so you don't have to worry about messing up good ones, the large beach towels, the decor is beautiful, the small table in living room with beach view, the large tv, the handsoap in bathroom, the cold drinks and wine in refrigerator waiting on us, the comfy bed, the hangers in closet for clothes, the nightlight in bathroom, the pool illuminated at night, the gorgeous sunsets, the convenience of walking out your door straight onto the beach, the outdoor grill is easy to use, ...I could go on and on...basically we loved everything! We will definitely use this home every time we come to the area. The extra bonus treat was that we got to spend the week with Betsy ,the owner, she made us feel so welcome, like family and it was comforting to know she was right next door if we needed her. I highly recommend staying here if you are a small family wanting privacy on the beach. Favorite finds: the wine place,The Florida Winery at John's Pass, they

have really good wine and wine freezes perfect for a refresher on a hot day, the salmon sandwich at Friendly Fisherman Restaurant is great, a really good fresh Italian restaurant is the Villa Gallace in Indian Rock but know it's a little more than other restaurants and they charge per refill for sodas - perfect for a special occasion meal. Also, if you ride bicycles, I suggest bringing them and riding the Pinellas trail. We did a 60 miles round trip a previous year (couldn't because of baby this year). It's really neat to travel safely through a bunch of towns on bike.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at this Beach House!! The area is our favorite place on the gulf. We walked to John's Pass several times. The beach was nice and not crowded. Having our own pool made it ideal!!
