“Location, location, location!”
That old real estate mantra of "location, location, location". Wow, does this property ever have that quality in spades! If your idea of “Heaven” is to relax DIRECTLY on the Gulf, this is the place for you! The patio area directly on the Gulf is exquisite! We spent many many enjoyable hours there.
We had a wonderful vacation here and we cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed ourselves. It was even better than we had expected! The house has plenty of room(we were a party of 4) and was very clean and is in top notch shape. The pool was stunning and provided spectacular ocean views. We would have a lovely swim and then relax poolside and soak up the sun and vistas. In the evenings we would slip into the hot tub and continue enjoying the view. The children especially delighted in spotting some wildlife from the pier- various birds, rays and dolphins. The house is within a an hour's drive of places to visit-Busch Gardens, Clearwater Aquarium and kayaking on the Hillsborough river. It was just wonderful to be able to head out for an excursion and then return to the house to relax and recharge away from all the hub of the city. We would also recommend an day out with Captain Todd (http://www.privateislandcharters.com). Todd will pick you up at the pier and then take you out for a great day of visiting some nearby islands-we had a great time exploring quiet beaches with white sand and a treasure trove of shells! Todd was a great tour guide and lovely with the children-he even made a point of heading out specifically to find some dolphins that my son had his heart set on seeing in the wild - we will always remember that vision of spotting a pod of dolphins swimming and jumping by the boat! Dianne is so lovely and warm and made us feel so welcome. She also made sure we did not need anything and provided tips on places we might like to see and places to eat. She could not have been nicer and we look forward to seeing her again as we plan to return next year!
“All it appears to be!”
This was the perfect location for our family vacation. The house had everything we could have needed or wanted! The owner was very nice and we enjoyed working with her. If your looking for a quiet, private location with perfect views of the Gulf, you could not ask for a better place!
“magnifcent view terrific accomodations and more wonderful host.”
Spacious home to accommodate large family/amazing views/well equipped for all the comforts of home/private location/daily natural wildlife-dolphins/osprey viewings/excellent proximity to local shopping/dining and sponge docks/Bush Gardens, etc.... We would definitely return to this home. Host is a lovely lady-genuinely concerned about her guests and comfort.
“Awesome house and an even better view!”
What a place!! Large, one story home with a hot tub and pool, right on the water. Very peaceful. We saw dolphins swimming around our "backyard". Owners were very involved and accessible 24/7, not that we needed anything. We had a blast!
Response from the owner We appreciate you sharing your stay At A Piece of Heaven, as owners this is the best compliment we can receive from our guests. Thanks again, we enjoyed having you stay! Dianne
We stayed at this place and a piece of heaven is an understatement. the views from this place was awesome. We saw dolphins, manatee, snook, sheephead, mullett and catfish. and many types of birds. It was really hard to leave........................ And the privateislandcharters with Captain Todd was incredible. We had 5 adults and a 13 year old and everyone enjoyed the charter. we fished, swam, walked beautiful beaches and it was more like a family outing than a charter. He did what we wanted to do. The house was spectacular...............
We arrived here from Orlando having spent a very busy week - we needed to relax and this was certainly the place to do it! We were a little unsure when we first arrived as the villa is very personal and quite quirky. However we soon grew to love it and found it spacious and clean with all amenities. Dianne was very helpful and took care to make sure we had all we needed. Our boys 9 and 14 really enjoyed fishing from the dock, swimming in the pool and going in and out of the jacuzzi. The jacuzzi was definitely the place to watch the incredible sunsets in the evening. Most days we saw dolphins and we particularly enjoyed our trip out in Todd's boat to the uninhabited islands - thoroughly recommend this and good value for money too.Loved all the wildlife - unusual birds, fish and loads of tiny lizards.The situation is very peaceful but well located to make day trips. The only gripes we had were that the Sponge docks were a little disappointing ( although Rusty Bellies is fantastic if you like seafood) and that it took so long for our deposit to be returned - over 45 days but to be fair Dianne does state this clearly in the contract so read the small print. We would like to visit again if we get the chance.
Response from the owner Just to let all know, there is no small print regarding the 45 day return of the deposit, the unfortunate situation arose during that awful blast of weather , mail sat for well over a week due to the snow. We always try to be within the time frame , however sometimes matters are out of our control. Sincere apologies though and happy to know you all had a great time and will make a return visit. Cheers! Dianne
When we first walked in, the view took our breath away! The ocean, right off of the kitchen was the most beautiful sight , especially coming from Pittsburgh, pa. Private house, private dock, and private pool, was more than we could've asked for ! Dianne was wonderful and very helpful. She accommodated our every need. You must take a trip on Private Island Charters to experience the gorgeous islands. We cannot say enough about what a joyous time we had at a Piece of Heaven. Thank you
“Beautiful location,really couldn't beat it!!”
We are a family of 5, three kids ages 13, 11 and 8. Having just braved Orlando for 5 days we needed to relax and this was just the place to do it! It really is as close to the sea as it looks in the photo!! We looked out of the sliding glass doors onto a small terrace, a beautiful pool and then, the Gulf. The wildlife was mesmerising, as were the sunsets. The house was spotlessly clean and everything worked. It was well equipped, we especially liked the gas bbq, which we used most evenings to cook wonderful steaks and seafood on. Highlights for the kids were the jacuzzi on the terrace and the tv's in their bedrooms!! We had a great day out at Busch Gardens, which I thought was better than the Disney and universal parks as it was massive and had something for everyone. However we all agreed that our favourite day was a boat trip organised by the owners son, where we visited the small uninhabited islands off the coast and then travelled up the river estuary into Tarpon Springs. This place is worth a visit, for its Greek connections due to Sponge collecting and some good restaurants (Rusty Bellies a favourite, it also has a good fish mongers attached), as well as a small aquarium. Really a great place to relax after Orlando, shame we had to go home!!!
“A perfect relaxing vacation”
"A Piece of Heaven" is pure relaxation and beauty. Watched dolphins playing, beautiful sunsets and wonderful accommodations. My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving vacation. The master bedroom was so inviting..a king size bed that was so comfortable we slept in every morning. And the view from the bedroom was incredible, not to mention the pool area. Hopefully we can come back in the spring! Dianne was great...really wanted our stay to be enjoyable.
