About Miriam Buono
Star of the Gulf has been my family's beach house since I was a little girl. Our own children now enjoy this treasure. We are very happy to share it with other families.
Miriam Buono purchased this House in 2008
Why Miriam Buono chose Redington Shores
When my parents decided to retire, we just couldn't bear selling the house, so we bought it! Our children are so happy that we are now the owners of Star of the Gulf! We go as often as we can. It's the one place we can really get away from it all and relax.
What makes this House unique
We love our cozy little neighborhood, having the beach just a few steps away, and walking down to the corner diner for breakfast and lunch. The beach is a gem. White sand goes on and on for miles in each direction. We love having the beach to ourselves.

Space and location
Literally steps away from a great beach for walking. Kind of a sleepy town- low key and not crowded. Units not fancy or updated to the max but comfortable seating and lots of storage and space. The 3 bedrooms unit and the guest suite provided my 3 brothers and our spouses to have a wonderful visit. We lacked for nothing except attractive outdoor seating but we just went to beach. We would come back again.
Beautiful quiet beach trolley close by no need to drive anywhere
Location, above all
Old but functional house with very clean units and plenty of space. The place is well stocked but would improve with the mere addition of a kitchen sponge and bathing soap. Great for families. The small recycling bin came nearly full, which forced us to ditch what we had in order to comply with checkout rules. The patio doors had pvc pipes improvising as lock bars, because that their locks were broken. The note in the property description mentions "beach towels provided" but none were found. However, there were plenty of beach chairs to enjoy the VERY nice public beach (neither private nor secluded). We had a great time, considering we chose to overlook the minor setbacks. As many say, you can't beat location, location, location.
Thank you for your comments. The recycling bin is provided by the town of Redington Shores. For sanitary reasons, guests provide their own sponges and personal products. The PVC pipes on the sliding doors are for extra security. I will let my caretaker know that the locks are not working. The agreement notes we do not provide beach towels, so I will look into where that is not indicated. Thank you for noting the cleanliness, as that is a top priority for us.
Excellent beach stay
Proximity to the beach was great. Clean well stocked house.
This was a great location to the beach. Only recommendation would be that there would have been garbage bags, toilet paper, and paper towels. Overall we had a great stay!
Thanks so much for your suggestions. We try to keep a basic supply of essentials on hand for our guests. We will make sure of this going forward.
Both units were great. They were clean and provided more than enough for our stay. We would definitely recommend it to anyone staying in the area and would definitely stay there again in the future.
It was great having you as our guests! Thanks so much!
