Look around Madeira Beach, Redington Beach, Treasure Island...

March is a peak month, so I'm not sure what kind of deals you'll find there then.

If you're looking for this March, you're also looking pretty late. We reserved a timeshare in Indian Rocks Beach about a year ago.

You might luck into a last minute cancellation, but I would definitely have an alternate plan.

Check vrbo.com - Indian Shores - lots of possibilities!

Try the Don Cesear in St. Pete Beach. It might not be the cheapest but is a really nice place to stay and close to Fort DeSoto park which has amazing beaches.

Our favorite place to eat is Salt Rock Grill in Indian Rocks beach. It has great seafood, steaks, etc.

I would suggest beachdirectory.com they have pictures of the hotels and links to their websites. Personally, we love St. Pete Beach and usually stay at the Sirata or Tradewinds Sandpiper. Good luck and have a great trip! PS.If you got to St. Pete--you must have the wings at Woodys!:thumbsup2

If your going to be around Redington Beach you got to eat at the Shells restaurant there and request a table in the back by the water, because the view looks amazing.

Trying to book something myself from 17th March, looked at vrbo cannot be bothered trying to search thru them all to find it they have avialabiltiy. Why can't it have a search facility?

Went on homeaway.com and most of the owners on their don't put their availabilty on so I have to email them anyway :headache: If I can't find one with availabilty I will give up and book a hotel, I don't need the hassle.

I just booked a home for early May. This will be the 2nd time renting a vacation home. Would never go back to a hotel room. At homeaway.com you just have to click on the word avalibility and it will bring up a calendar.

Happy hunting, you won't regret it.:cheer2: :woohoo: :banana:
