Just what we needed!
My husband and I are St Pete residents. Our home was heavily damaged in a fire and we needed a fully furnished short term accommodation while we contemplated our next step. This place gave us everything we needed...easy access to all of mid and south Pinellas, great WiFi for my mini office, fully stocked kitchen, grill, all the amenities of home, plus the most amazing view. It was such a relief not to have to spend two months living out of a hotel. Oh, and the neighborhood is so nice and accepting of visitors!
AMAZING St. Pete Beach Water Front Experience
By far, the best experience you can have in St. Pete Beach. We have stayed at multiple properties in St. Pete and St. Petersburg and nothing compares to our stay at Palm Point. We spent a month at this property and wished that we never had to leave. This Palm Point home is not just a great place to stay but an experience of everything St. Pete Beach has to offer. An all glass rear exterior overlooking the backyard and deck is so close to the water that you are literally steps from the bay. Everyday we were able to watch the dolphins and manatees go by and the tour boats traveling out to the gulf. Right from the dock we were able to go swimming and kayaking (Kayak's and life jackets were provided). Inside, the home has a huge open floor plan with high ceilings and three large bedrooms perfect for staying with family and friends. The best beaches are only blocks away and the property is central to everything. A short walk to the beach or a short drive to downtown St. Petersburg, Fort De Soto Park, and John's Pass. Check in and check out was hassle free and our host, Kate, was great. She brought fresh towels for our stay on the first day and was a phone call away if we needed anything. There is no better way to experience the best that Tampa Bay and its beaches has to offer. Thank you Kate for the best Florida vacation we could ask for.
The place is Awesome!
This is kind of a Catch 22 to write a review. I feel I want them to get the recognition and business they deserve BUT I am afraid that once more people know about their place the less it will be available for me!! I know that sounds selfish but this place is absolutely everything you need for a great stay in the St Petes area. It is in a very nice quiet neighborhood along the inner coastal. It's within walking distance to one of the best beaches in the world and Gulf Blvd, the main strip, where there are all kinds of shops, great restaurants, and great places to enjoy some nightlife right on beach side!
Yet if you want to just relax and enjoy some quiet time back at the house, the back deck by the water is awesome!! Great place to have your morning coffee and watch the sunrise. You can relax and enjoy the sun with all kinds of exotic birds, and aquatic life. I believe we saw a dolphin just about everyday throughout our stay. There's a nice big gas grill to fix a nice big BBQ for several people if need be, like we did, or to just throw a dog on anytime you feel the urge. Schedule? What schedule? Your on vacation!
Evenings were so quiet and peaceful! You can almost hear a pin drop. Warm gulf breeze with a nice glass of wine with your most favorite person in the world ! Who could ask for more?
Not me! :)
Waterfront wildlife getaway
Nancy and Kate were very attentive to all my correspondence and requests. Couldn't have asked for more from them. I did need to contact them for the oven to be cleaned, an ironing board to be delivered and new cutlery as previous guests has destroyed them by using incorrect dishwasher cleaner. They dealt with everything immediately. Fantastic.
The villa has the most spectacular views from the lounge/diner/deck. We had Dolphins put on a show a few mornings, and a whole host of birds visit including Pelicans, herons, Eagles and night herons. Very chilled watching the fish jumping and it gave us the best sunrises and sunsets.
The villa is very spacious, comfortable beds and sofas. I would say after coming from an extremely well equipped property in Kissimmee, it did seem sparse on kitchen equipment, towels, bedding, and tea towels. For the Brits, there was no electric kettle.
Very friendly neighbours who were extremely helpful.
I would return for the views, location, and service from Nancy and Kate.
One thing missing. A hot tub!!
Thanks for your input. Will add teapot to the kitchen...Glad you had a good time.
Stunning views from dinning and deck. Large home.
We had a wonderful stay and the home was very spacious even with 6 of us.The deck was huge and has wonderful views. The pier is in need of repair but we were able to load and unload the boat with ease.Kayaks were a plus.Hope to return soon. Kate and company were awesome as hosts.
New dock was completed in March. Beautiful!! Took a long time because contractors here are very busy and permitting takes a while.
Loved the house, awesome view
Shopping and restaurants are abundant on the island and 15 minutes away is lovely downtown St Petersburg with its 8 world class museum, Tropicana Field for baseball, and historical architecture.
Disney and all the Orlando attractions are 90 minutes away for a convenient day trip.
