About David Watson

Our parents moved to Florida in 2003 and hosted family gatherings all times of the year. This photo is from one such event and includes Grandma and many of the grandchildren. We continue to use the property for such gatherings and are also offering it for rent to like-minded families interested in intimate gatherings at this very well-maintained and intimate property in gorgeous Vina del Mar of St Pete Beach.

David Watson purchased this house in 2003

Why David Watson chose Vina Del Mar Island

House structure is ideal for all ages, from the elderly to the youth, with tile throughout a single floor level that accommodates wheelchairs throughout the home and the property, including the dock itself!

Excellent location provides lovely views of the water, and easy access to nearby beaches, parks, restaurants, and surrounding environment

St Petersburg area has the Dali and other museums, natural parks with extensive bird and aquatic wildlife, professional athletic events including car racing, football, baseball, and hockey, outdoor activities including swimming, cycling, beach combing, put-put golf, boating, fishing, etc. etc.

Lots of fun things to do here for all ages !!

What makes this house unique

Tampa International airport is approximately 35 minutes drive and when you get here you feel like you're a million miles from where you came. It's tremendously relaxing here, with the water, beaches, natural light, wildlife, restaurants, and so many enjoyable things to do. Hermosita here we come!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Truly an amazing home. Location is perfect for easy beach access. pool and yard are very well maintained. Home is equipped for basic cooking. My family meets me there from all over the country. Very convenient for airport access. I have stayed in this home twice for a month at a time. LOVE the view of the intercoastal. I would stay in this home again. Owners are very accessible if there are questions or problems. I genuinely love this home.

Feeling like jello in no time!

  • 5 of 5

Hmmmmm. Should we walk or take a short bike ride to beautiful St. Pete's Beach? Perhaps we should walk out of the back door, past the pool and sit on the dock watching the dolphins swim by.

A lovely, inviting property with every comfort you could imagine. We cannot wait to return.
