Overview

About the property

Have it all! 5 min walk to the beach, every amenity in a private tropical oasis

The uncrowded sugary sand beach is just a short 5 min stroll from this romantic, Completely Private/separate guest house. It is just what the Dr ordered for some time away from it all! Guest house is completely separate from the main house with it's own private entrance and extra tall privacy fenced yard with hot tub! You won't see anyone and no one can see you in this lush, tropical, beach getaway.

Optional: We have employed a very reasonably priced Concierge service with prices based on the packages/services you choose. Whether your on a beer budget or a champagne budget, there is something for everyone! Anything from stocking the mini fridge before you arrive, a picket basket lunch for a day at the beach, to flowers, chocolate covered strawberries and champagne on the beach at sunset, massages in your room or on the beach, fishing trips, jet skis, kayaking, parasailing, snorkeling with the manatees, you name it she can arrange it!! Or have a completely private place to yourselves and never see another person during your vacation, it's completely up to you!

The decor is all Bohemian Hippie Fun! Forget the job, become a beach bum then meander back to your private oasis and lounge around in the hot tub al naturale!. Hit the local Tiki bars for some evening fun! Or or throw some fresh caught fish on the grill and pop open an ice cold beer. If it's adventure your craving your concierge can arrange any number of activities: parasailing, wave runners, kayaks, fishing trips, beach bikes... you name it, she can arrange it!!

WALK TO THE BEACH 0.2 miles - We call this a "coffee walk". If you can get to the beach and enjoy your coffee while it's still hot, your a coffee walk away! Less than a 5 min easy stroll to the uncrowded beach across the street. If you'd rather not be elbow to elbow on the beach, this is the spot for you, stretch out and relax! No parking lot means fewer people! And since beautiful Redington Beach does not allow condos and the crowds of people they bring, this is one of the most sought after beaches on the Gulf!

This fun little guest house has it's own separate outside entrance from the main home and separate private fenced yard (extra tall). The ONLY shared space with the main home is the driveway/carport.

Private yard has new 5 person hot tub with all the bells and whistles. Color changing lights, and tons of jets all surrounded by tropical landscaping and soft night lighting.

Bohemian decor, small kitchenette, and a tropical rain shower bathroom that brings the outdoors in.. From the bathroom, go through the little "hobbit door" and you'll find an additional outdoor shower enclosed with tropical foliage (enclosed by privacy fence of course). Is there anything better than a showering in the sunshine? No cold showers here, this outdoor shower has hot water!

It is completely furnished with everything you will need, including dishes, linens etc. It also has all the beach gear you will need: chairs, umbrella, cooler ... Just bring your suitcase!

Designed for couples with an open concept space. There is a little kitchenette with a small fridge and dishwashing drawer. Just enough dishes, not the place to cook elaborate meals but your meals can be pre-ordered and provided, or if your feeling lazy (highly recommended!!), use the local delivery service to bring you dining from over 15 restaurants right to your doorstep.

The studio style bedroom looks out through a set of french doors onto your patio with lounge chairs and an umbrella. Just down the little path from the patio your hot tub awaits you! Pop off the top and relax to the sound of it's little waterfall. In the evening, enjoy your cocktails in the hot tub lit by the soft colored lights that light up the water just enough.

Everyone one is welcome! LGBT friendly!

Neighborhood is very safe and very quiet.

Yard is privacy fenced all the way around. You won't see anyone and they won't see you!

Off street parking for up to two cars. Driveway is shared with main home, the owner travels so is not often home. There is a separate little walkway that leads to the gated entrance to the guest house.

Restaurants, Bars, water sports, grocery stores, pharmacy etc. Everything is walking distance or within a short trolley ride that picks you up just steps from your house.

PETS: Well behaved pets and their responsible pet owners are welcome! All pets must be treated with flea preventative prior to arrival. No pitbulls or pitbull mixes please. No weight limits. Must be non-aggressive. Please inquire about our pet policy.

Quiet Retreat Was Just Enough

  • 5 of 5

This lil get away is an amazing value. The property is located very close to a beach without parking which makes it VERY secluded. Easy walk down. Had all the amenities there for beach and otherwise. Shower in and out are great. Comfy bed. And the host is a pleasure to work with and very accommodating. If in the area again we will most definitely try for this property again.

Perfect spot for a relaxing beach vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We are already missing the Love Shack, we had a great time here for 2 weeks. Having just sold our business, we needed a true break with no itinerary and lots of time to just relax. This intimate space with the private backyard and wonderful hot tub fit the bill perfectly.

We are so happy we chose to stay in Redington, we visited the entire length of the beach from Clearwater to St. Pete's and Redington is a quiet neighborhood (not hotels or big resorts) which meant the beach was quiet and it was a great location for walking the dog and getting a true sense for the area. Nightlife was an easy drive or Lyft away. The weather chose not to cooperate and we were there for a rare Florida "winter" so more layers than we would have liked to be wearing but still plenty of sunny days to read on the beach or take the dog to Fort DeSoto (dog friendly beach and awesome dog park). The hot tub was crucial for relaxing and warming back up each night, it was nice and hot and the lights are fun as is the waterfall feature. The lighting in the backyard at night is so cool, it is like a totally different space from daytime.

Paige was awesome, super responsive with our questions from start to finish and checking in to see if we needed anything. The rental was very true to how it looks and is described on the listing. The electric fireplace was neat, we needed it for more than ambiance on a few chilly nights and it worked great. The WiFi was strong and easy to use, even throughout the yard. The TV setup is fantastic, can watch from the bed or the patio (and even the hot tub when we were watching playoff football). Local cable plus Netflix and Amazon accounts ready for your use. Parking is off street and simple, everything you could want for the beach is there for your use.

We'd love to return in a bit warmer weather to really take advantage of the beautiful beach just across the street and the outdoor shower. This was a really nice vacation and we are so grateful that our dog could come with us as well, he loved exploring all the dog friendly offerings of the area. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

Really Cute, very well furnished.

  • 5 of 5

Very cute little place, just as described although the review get a bit confused with the larger house it's attached to, this was fine for us and our two dogs. It's very convenient to the beach and to everything St Pete area has to offer and is in a quiet little neighborhood great for walking the dogs. Paige and Tori were great to work with and very accommodating. My only wish is that it had a larger refrigerator. The A/C was nice and cold and bed comfy and the TV was fabulous! Loved both the indoor bamboo shower and the outdoor shower too after a dip in the hot tub! Thanks for a great get-away!
