The room, view, and of course the beach were all great! Our room viewed the beach and was on the first floor; it had everything we needed. The patio area was a bit 'ragged' but not a major detraction.

What a pleasant experience it has been for my family to spend our vacation time at this beach house! Mr. Carter was a pleasure to work with, quickly responding to any question. The beach here is amazing; we have a treasure of great finds from our morning strolls, and the sunsets - incredible. Foot traffic on the beach here is... More

We were glad to see the floors of #4 have been redone, but still wish that the rotten windows would be replaced. Billing seems to be an issue. On 7/27/16 we booked 8 nights for early October. Our email confirmation indicated a final total of $1,471.26. A $200 deposit was paid on 8/2/16, leaving what should be $1,271.26 to be... More

The location is to die for. The property is lazy classic sea side. The building itself is old and poorly insulated. This is not your perfect hotel room with high def tvs so dont expect it.

The Manager of the property (Bruce) stays in touch with you through the original booking. Then, nothing. The property location is undeniably nice, however, the charm wears off if you have to be confined to the apartment because of bad weather (we were in Apt. 1). We had stayed right after Hermine had passed, and had tried to email, call,... More

As a Superior Small Lodging location, i was expecting slightly more than we received. The room was clean, but really basic. The view was great with wrap around windows, but this is definitely a room for only two as the french door to the bedroom cannot close due to the assembled closet being on the side of the bed.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for a week on vacation and had a great time. Steps from the beach and not too populated either. Would have given 5 stars but was a little disappointed I had to pay to use the washer and dryer. Otherwise a great place for a beach getaway

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Sun n Fun Beachfront Rentals. Location, Location, Location. Historically, this is the most beautiful spot on the tropical barrier islands of Tampa Bay between Clearwater and St Pete. The Gulf of Mexico and private white sand beach is right out your door. Wade out to the shallow sand bar to explore for shells and sand dollars or walk across the street to watch the yachts go by and fish in the bay. Old Timers call this part of the island "The Narrows" where the sand is just wide enough for a single row of homes. The large home and carriage house are now converted into 6 Gulf front suites featuring full kitchens, pillow top beds, and fantastic views. Awarded one of the highest scores on the beach by Superior Small Lodging. Kids love an old place surrounded by water. We are small and personable. We hope to see you soon ! ... more   less
