Florida Gulf Coast beachfront rentals at Grandma’s island beach house from the summer of 1925. The large home and carriage house are now converted into 6 Gulf front villas 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. Gulf of Mexico and private white sand beach are right out your door. Wade out to the shallow sandbar 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.
Historically, the most beautiful spot on the tropical barrier islands of Tampa Bay between Clearwater and St Pete.
Why Kids Love It
Step back in time and experience “Old Florida”.
One of the last remaining historic beach houses and carriage houses on the island. Kids love to explore. This was the family getaway of FD Jackson, a seed merchant from Tampa.
Even adults find their inner child when saying here. These old homes were built right on the beach. You can't get any closer to the water . Enjoy our true island feeling surrounded by the waters of the Gulf and the Bay. .
- Walk across the street to catch fish and wave to the yachts going by.
- Feel the sand between you toes. Take a long walk to explore nature. We are a sea bird sanctuary. The gulls and sand pipers outnumber the tourist on this semi-private beach. Our dunes with sea oats provide nesting for turtles.

- Build castles in our sugar white sand,
- Take a sea kayak to paddle along the shoreline
- Body surf in the waves if the wind is blowing.

Location Says It All
Unit 3 in this 6 unit beach house was the unit we rented. It was a second floor, one bedroom apartment with balcony overlooking the fantastic patio, beach, and gulf. I will start by saying the unit could use a little updating BUT, we didn't go there for a mansion since we weren't in the room that much. It had everything we needed. The bed was super comfortable and the towels were luxurious. The marina could be seen from the kitchen window. Has beach chairs, umbrellas, picnic tables, firepit and chairs, washer and dryer.The private beach area was the best. A condo sits to the left but there were very few people around. The other houses in the area have their own beachfront so plenty of room for all. We saw the sunset every night from the deck/backyard.Very safe area and Caddy's Bar and Grill was within walking distance. Along the strip were many other eating places and a great souvenir shop. Guilty Sea Sports Bar was another excellent place.The owner was one of the best I have ever dealt with. Immediate responses from him and he told us the history of the place. He was a joy to get to know and obviously cares about the beach house very much. He was always available for us even though he wasn't local.We had a chance to view all 6 units and they were all unique in their own way. We are having trouble deciding which one we want to rent for next year. We will definitely return. After staying here, I will have a hard time going back to a hotel. (We had a reservation at Pier 60 in Clearwater but canceled after finding this gem and are so glad we did.)Thanks to Wes for being such a terrific owner and I hope you can always keep this in your family.
