Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

The house is in a very nice neighborhood and I believe that you will enjoy the quiet location, just as I do when I am there. The rear garden is fully enclosed and there is parking for at least three cars with a carport area for one space. The home is furnished with very nice reproduction antique furniture with an emphasis on solid wood. Each bedroom has a different variety of hardwood with Mahogany in the master bedroom, Maple in second bedroom and Cherry in the smaller but very comfortable third bedroom. Each bedroom has a walk in closet with plenty of storage space. As for the bathrooms, one has a walk in shower and the other has a bath tub with shower and curtain along with an adjoining closet for the washer dryer. The open plan lounge has leather furnishings and the adjoining kitchen has large appliances for all your in catering needs. The rear deck has a gas grill and plenty of space for cooking and eating outside.

My husband and I stayed at this very convenient home for 3 months this winter..The owner was very accomodating..He had several people for us to call if there were any issues and their response was very timely.The home is well situated in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to grocery, shopping center, bus transportation..It is also only blocks away from a boat harbor and the well known Coffe Pot Bayou, where there is a walking and bike path along the water.There are numerous shorebirds and we even saw a few manatees. Many parks and walk/bike trails in the city. The house is 2 miles from downtown with many good restaurants and museums.It is also only 20 minutes from Tampa. The house is set up well with master bedroom and bath on one wing, and two guest bedrooms and bath with shower on the other wing..The kitchen is well supplied and all appliances were in good working order. There is a good size back yard with grill and picnic table and we enjoyed sitting out there in the morning and evening. We plan to return next year.

Location

Activity and Interests

Aviators welcome. The house is located within a 10 minute drive to the Albert Whitted Municipal Airport. From here you can plan your Flight Training Vacation and should be able to complete your U.S. Private Pilots License within Three to Four weeks. I have many contacts at the Airport who will personally guide you through the Training Process and if you happen to be in town at the same time as me, I can fly with you as a Certified Flight Instructor. You can rent a C-172 for approximately $96 per hour after joining the club and you can also fly a Garmin G1000 172 that comes with air conditioning. The flying here is very straight forward and a short flight across the Bay gets you into Uncontrolled Airspace where you can conduct all of your maneuvers without distraction. For the more advanced Pilots, you can fly Instrument Approaches (without cost) to Tampa International, Sarasota International and Clearwater International Airports while gaining valuable experience in a busy and demanding Radar Vectoring environment.

Weigh the Anchor. The St Petersburg area has many Marinas and Boating facilities. The Sailing Florida Charters & Sailing School, Inc has everything that a Sailor could want for a vacation on the waves and just like most everything else, it is situated within a short drive from your vacation home. They have two very convenient locations as follows: Vinoy Resort Marina, 501 Fifth Avenue NE, St. Petersburg, FL and The Harborage Marina, 1110 Third Street south, St. Petersburg, FL. If it is Offshore Sailing that you are into then, Steve and Doris Colgate's Offshore Sailing School is probably for you. Also located at the Harborage Marina it offers too many options for me to list here but rest assured, within this idyllic part of the world you will enjoy a Sailing Vacation to remember.

Fishing Frenzy. Try to imagine a Fishing Trip where you catch Fish so big, they almost drag you off the side of the Boat. On top of that, you will be able to take the catch home and cook up a wonderful seafood dinner for your friends and family on the gas grill provided at your vacation home. The Offshore Grouper Fishing is the best anywhere and if you like the more exotic species like Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Shark, Snapper, Amberjack, Tarpon, Kingfish, Snook, Redfish, Permit, Cobia, then look no further than the St Johns Pass Marina. To get there will require a 30 minute drive from St Petersburg but once you arrive, Go Fish Hardcore Offshore Fishing Charters will have your arms aching in no time at all. If you happen to catch more than you can handle, please put them in the freezer for me to eat when I manage to get back home.

Fore. Florida is a very popular destination for Golfers, especially in the winter months. There are many Public Courses in the area along with Exclusive Clubs that have short term memberships available. The house is literally next door to the Renaissance Vinoy Resort Golf Club which is sometimes open to the public. One very popular Par 72 Championship 18 hole facility which happens to be located less than five miles away from your vacation rental, is called the Mangrove Bay Golf Course. It is my favorite golf course as it offers the casual golfer a chance to practice on the driving range, make plenty of practice pitch and puts and sand trap shots for just a few Dollars. The course presents a challenge for the long hitting, more advanced player while novices like me can gain confidence and experience from the forgiving fairways. There is a set of clubs at the house for anyone to use if they decide not to bring there own with them. There is no charge for this but, I ask that you clean them after use.

Notes:

  • The house enjoys a very convenient location. A short 5 minute drive gets you on to the Interstate and a 10 minute drive gets you downtown. It takes about two hours to get to Disney, about 40 minutes to Busch Gardens and around 25 minutes to St Pete Beach. The local area has more attractions than I can list here but some of note are; The Dali Museum, The Florida Aquarium, The Museum of Science and Industry, Lowry Park Zoo, Fort Desoto National Park as well a annual events like the St Petersburg Grand Prix and Gasparilla. We have many top sports franchises like the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and The Lightning Ice Hockey Team. In St Petersburg we enjoy First Friday which is a free open air concert downtown every First Friday of the month where you can hang out with the locals and get a taste of living in the City while at the same time getting a taste for the local restaurant scene which has many cultural influences. Outside on the wooden deck you will find a gas barbecue grill which you are more than welcome to use. To ensure you get the most from the gas bottle (not included in the rental fee) please try to remember to turn it off after each cook out as this stops the gas leaking gradually over time. In the garden underneath the Oak tree, who's name is Oscar, you will find a picnic bench which is useful for eating and drinking outside and for enjoying the evening time as the sun goes down. On the small brick patio area next to the deck there is a Well Water Pump and associated timer. This is for the irrigation system and should not be operated by the guest as the system can only be used when allowed by the City of St Petersburg and the timer ensures that the regulations are complied with. The Garden Shed is for maintenance use and once every two weeks a maintenance man will visit the home to take care of the lawn and Garden and answer any maintenance related questions.
