The space

We are sisters who have created a "living museum" for you to enjoy both our beautiful beaches and a bit of the history and culture of the area! Our family arrived to this beach community before there were big hotels or even paved roads!

Our home was built in 1928, right across the street from a big pink castle, The Don CeSar Resort and Spa. The views of this iconic building are impeccable! And you will have access to the same beach as the hotel guests, but at much lower prices.

In addition to your two bedroom, one bath private suite in which to relax and unwind, you can enjoy a pristine white sand beach just steps away from the front door.

We invite you to share our home with us.

Guest access

Casablanca boasts a warm, open living room with a grand piano and a working fireplace, a naturally lit dining room to enjoy breakfast, a cozy parlor for drinks and conversation, and an open air patio space to accommodate groups of any size for social events. In addition to your private suite, you should feel welcome to enjoy access to all common areas.

Interaction with guests

Our family owns and operates a marina with fishing boats, sightseeing boats, shelling excursions, a ferry boat to nearby islands and attractions, in addition to kayak and paddle board rentals. We would be glad to offer you discounted trips if you fancy getting out on the water!

We would also be happy to organize restaurant reservations or in-home services like massages or facials during your stay. Our preferred vendors are licensed professionals that we frequent for our personal health and well-being... and we would be happy to extend their services to you.

We desire to provide a hotel-esque experience, with ample privacy and independence. And for interested guests, we are thrilled for the opportunity to go above and beyond to facilitate a more interactive stay! We are perpetual travelers and having been hosted by countless people in countless countries, we have quite the karmic debt to repay. So ask us anything!

Other things to note

We have parking in our driveway that can accommodate your and your guests cars.

We would be happy to schedule a massage or facial during you stay, either at home or on the beach. Our aesthetician and masseuse can make house calls for your convenience and comfort. Pricing and availability upon request!

This home was amazing! It was so conveniently located with easy in and out access. That was our first clue that we made the right choice. Just as the owner said! Then when we walked in we were delighted to see that the pictures didn’t lie. Such a beautiful home full of history. Our hostess was amazing about making sure we had every need met. We were very impressed with her professionalism and compassion to make sure we were comfortable. It truly felt like home and she let us completely make ourselves at home. If you’re looking for a quiet place with lots of room, indoors and out, conveniently located with easy access to all the area has to offer then this is your place!! We know we will return on our next trip down! And that says a lot in my book!! The Kinser’s

My boyfriend and I loved our stay at Tara's. The bed was very comfortable, the sheets super soft, and the room was light and uncrowded. I loved the style of the entire home. The house is located close to nice beaches at Fort Desoto, Pass A Grill, and Shell Key. Don't miss taking the boat to Shell Key to explore. And the coffee at the coffee / ice cream store in Pass A Grill is absolutely outstanding. The barista is a coffee genius!

Tara and Corey's home is just wonderful! The bedroom was airy and bright. The bathroom was perfectly clean. The hospitality was top notch and I felt very welcome. I really appreciated that the Don CeSar was right across the street since I attended a wedding there on Saturday. I also walked to the beach during my stay. There are restaurants and drug stores close-by. It would be possible to stay here without a car because there is a trolley that goes all around St. Pete Beach to it even goes to Downtown St. Pete. If you have a car, there is parking for three cars. Thank you so much for the stay!

Despite a nightmare drive up from Miami and getting to the house about 5 hours later than expected with our infant and dog, Tara and Corey were extremely helpful and gracious hosts. We saw them intermittently throughout our short stay, but they were available for any questions we had and couldn't have asked for a better experience. If we ever head back to the area we'd definitely try to book with them again

This is an elegant home, and Tara is a friendly, but not intrusive host. We also enjoyed extras, such as a discount on kayak rental at the family's marina. And as musicians, we loved the grand piano!

Such an historic beauty! Tara and Corey are so sweet and make you feel right at home immediately. The beach is right around the corner and nightlife is only minutes away. Loved everything about our stay! Can't wait to go back!

I graduated from Florida International University in Miami, FL in May of 2015 and have been traveling nearly non-stop since. Throughout these travels I was blessed to encounter different hosts all over the world that treated me like family. Being able to experience new places and cultures through a local is a beautiful thing! Now that I'm back home and settled, I feel priveledged to return this favor to my fellow travelers. Karma at it's finest.

I absolutely love everything to do with travel and I enjoy doing yoga. I have cultivated my passions into a career with my new business - Om the Go. While traveling I realized I wanted a more lightweight / compact travel mat so I invented a 2-in-1 neck pillow and travel yoga mat called the Asana Pillow. I now have an online store and also sell on Amazon :)

Travel for me is much, much more than a plane ticket to a strange place but more so a new way of seeing things - being able to attain a fresh perspective on the beauty that surrounds me. Whether that beauty is in my backyard or across the Pacific Ocean!
