Why Maura Keenan chose Vina Del Mar Island
I vacationed a few blocks away for 14 years and finally bought on Vina. Its a quiet neighborhood close to the most beautiful beach and downtown Pass-A-Grill community without the beach noise and congestion.

This house just wonderful with excellent location and amazing amenities. Very comfortable and it is a place one can relax into. It has a feeling of a family retreat, which was exactly how we used it with shifts of three generations, something for everyone. We spent hours chilling on the lanai and patio, grilling out. We rode bikes or ran to the beach, stilled to dinner, hung out watching TV and could be in downtown St. Pete in 15 minutes. When I was looking for a home to rent, I wondered if this place was a bit shabby compared with some of more curated houses on VRBO and, while not updated or fancy, this house is really comfortable and well appointed. The neighborhood is great and beach is so close and very local feeling, as opposed to hotely. It’s a really great option for families or a group that wants a low key environment. I would definitely recommend this home and would absolutely stay again. In fact, we hope to. Maura was a fantastic host!
Spacious and comfortable. Close to the most beautiful beach - white sand and clear blue water. The neighborhood is residential and very quiet. Tennis courts and playground just a few blocks away. The house had all the amenities - wifi, large porch with seating area and large table, washer/dryer. Nicely decorated in beach style.
We will be back for sure!
Perfect for our needs!
We so enjoyed our short trip to Florida for one of my daughter's weddings! The house was perfect for our needs as it provided large rooms and plenty of space. We had my husband and I, and two other daughter's each with one child in tow!
My husband went for a bike ride to the water to take pix and having the chairs to take to the beach was great. We were pretty busy in our 3 days there so it was perfect to have a place to come to that we could grab something to eat and rest up. Also, the convenience of the location was fabulous! The wedding was on the beach at 19th and the house was just off of 21st...so easy and close to everything we needed.
Would absolutely rent again in a heartbeat. The owner is so nice and responds very quickly to any inquiry!
Thanks so much for the use of your property.
Blessings from Bret, Becky, Kateland, Natalie, Eli & Brynlee!
Really enjoyed our stay!
Stayed for the long 4th of July weekend and had a very good stay!! The house was very nice and absolutely loved the back porch! The house is a little dated but you can tell the owners are updating little by little. The nieborhood is very quiet and in a great area. Close to great restaurants and beautiful beaches. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely home!
Spacious, nice setting, easy to find
Our group of 5 enjoyed the house and the neighborhood. It was quiet, plenty of parking, and easy to find. Three things we would like to see improved are: 1-the house was generally clean but it seemed like the bathroom drawers needed to be cleaned before we could use them. The dishes in the cupboard were still greasy and we had to wash them before using them.
2- The bedroom on the front corner of the house did not cool down with the a/c on. We tried opening the doors from the hall to increase circulation of air; we tried keeping the doors closed. We had the fans going to help move the air but the room remained warm through the night.
3-Window coverings didn't keep the light out in the morning and at night, didn't seem to provide privacy. It seemed like someone outside could see in if the lights were on at night.
I didn't notice any emergency contact if there was a problem-like the plumbing backing up, a tree blew on the house, the a/c didn't work, etc.
There were plenty of towels-both bath and beach- to use. The bikes were a treat.
Overall, we found the experience enjoyable. We would rent it again.
Loved the location and the screened porch, maintenance and cleaning not perfect hence the 4 stars
Concrete block home just a short walk from the beach and laid back Passe-a-Grille. AC, appliances and showers all fine. Master bed also nice. Decor and other bedrooms are dated and it wasn't as clean as our recent rentals have been. Not bad, just not outstanding. Access was simple and plenty of free parking on site. Bikes are a plus but one had a flat when we visited. Overall a good value near a great beach.
1/4 mile to Pass-a-Grill beach
Great nightlife and restuarants in downtown St. Petersburgh
Tampa Bay buccs and Rays nearby
Community park with tennis and basketball courts a few blocks away
