About this listing
This is our wonderful three bedroom, two bath house located less than 400 steps to the beach! IRB is right in between Clearwater (less than 7 miles) and St. Pete Beach (13 miles) - close enough to all the action but still far enough away!
The house is very charming and offers a welcome respite from "real life." We love spending time there after a long week at work and enjoying our home away from home! The space is approximately 1300 sq ft, with a very nice size yard complete with hammock, covered porch and grill. Families are especially welcome!
The kitchen is fully functional and comes with a dishwasher, microwave, and all the tools necessary for cooking, along with an outdoor charcoal grill . There is also a washer and dryer, iron, wi-fi, and a 50-inch tv to enjoy!
The master bedroom has a queen-sized bed, plenty of closet space, and an en suite, newly renovated bathroom.
A second bedroom has two twin-sized beds, with even more closet space, and the third bedroom has a day bed (and could sleep 2). The couch in the living room can also fold out into a bed, in a pinch.
All sheets and towels are provided. We also have plenty of beach towels, a wagon and cooler to help haul your stuff down to the beach.
You will have access to the entire house and yard.
Interaction with Guests
We live in Costa Rica but will do everything we can to make your stay be enjoyable!
The house is located in a truly great spot. The beach is less than 400 steps away, as are some of IRB's best restaurants like Crabby Bill's, PJ's Oyster Bar and Slyce Pizza. An ice cream and coffee spot is located right around the corner. We are located off a side street, away from the hustle and bustle of the tourists but still close enough to walk up to a fun time!
There is a bus/trolley service that travels up and down Gulf Blvd, with easy access to Clearwater, Treasure Island, or St. Pete beaches. It can even take you to downtown St. Pete, which is definitely worth checking out. Our driveway easily fits two cars with additional parking on the street. There is also a bike rental shop right around the corner.
Other Things to Note
Your security deposit will be returned once we know that no damage to the house or issues occurred during your stay, including but not limited to any police issues / neighbor complaints, extra occupancy, smoking, or pets.
If you're going to have more than 5 people stay or plan to bring an animal, please let me know in advance and we can try to work something out, otherwise you will lose your security deposit. Seasonal rates may also apply.
Please be courteous of the neighbors. Unfortunately, they are not on vacation with you! IRB is a pretty small community, with a great family atmosphere. It's a favorite among Tampa locals so please just be respectful.
Kaitlyn is a former prosecutor and Joe works for a bank, though his mind is always venturing off to plan our next great adventure to some far off destination. We love to travel and get to know new people. Joe is a Gator, and Kaitlyn is a Bulldog and yet, we find a way to make it work!
