Places to stay with a boat trailer

I would like to Come down to the Tampa / St Pete / Clearwater area for a week in March/ and bring my boat.  Unfortunately AirBNB doesn’t have a category for parking with boat trailers and all of,the renters I contacted didn’t want boats and trailers on their property 

does anyone know of anyplace in the area that I can stay with a truck, trailer and 25ft boat for a week.  It’s just me, no pets, no kids.

I know I could stay in a hotel but would prefer not to keep the boat in the hotel parking lot 

Thanks in advance

    There is an airbnb across the street from me. We are located in Port Richey. Its called the yellow house on Sterling Lane. I would be willing to let you park your boat in my front yard. It's only for a week and my boyfriend parks his Rig there when he is home. We could work something out I'm sure, like, like maybe 15.00 a day? Good luck in your search

    I own a house in Indian Shores that is .5 miles from the boat ramp and you can put your trailer in the front of the house or in the carport.  You also have an option to put the trailer at the boat ramp for $15.00 per day.  The house has a great dock to keep the boat.  March is pretty booked but April has a lot of options.  The VRBO # is 2003688.  Good Luck

    You might be able to park the boat/trailer at O'neils in St Pete for a couple days.   I doubt they have any slips but it might be worth checking into

    Thanks everyone for the replies.  I got really busy and just had a chance to get back on here.   I am looking at all your suggestions and trying to figure out the best plan.

    Boca Grande North has rental units with boat lifts.

    Airbnb Little Gasparilla Island.  You have to park the truck and trailer at Placida boat ramp and drive to the island.  No lifts but very convenient.  You can get a parking pass for like $25 for 3 or 4 months to cover your parking.  LOCK your trailer though.  I got a trailer stolen from there a few years ago when I was on the island for a week.

    There is a hotel in englewood that I used to use too that is very fisherman friendly.  Small hotel, used to be called the veranda, now it is called suncoast inn.  Haven't stayed there in  years but it was always clean and worked great for our weekend adventures and overall pretty affordable.

    The Two Fish Inn in St. James City (south end of Pine Island) is great and they have offsite trailer parking for guests so you can keep your boat in the water behind the Inn.  Super nice people/owners, very clean, good prices and close to some fantastic fishing.  I highly recommend it. Two Fish Inn | Pine Island, Florida vacation suites
