Location for winter stay suggestions needed

First time on this board, so please be nice . . .

Would like to spend a month in the area, late January to late February. Will be bringing a dog, and want a location near the beach, (even if it's too cold to use it), that is laid back, not real beach towny, but not totally isolated either. We have spent the last 2 winters on Anna Maria Island, if that is any help. Any areas that someone can suggest? Thanks.

Look into the smaller beach communities between St. Pete Beach, and Clearwater Beach. They are more laid-back, and a bit slower paced and not as crowded. Plus, Clearwater Beach, or St. Pete Beach will be just a short drive away for shopping, more restaurants, and activities.

Madeira Beach, Redington Shores, North Redington Beach, Indian Rocks Beach, Indian Shores, Belleair Beach, and Sand Key.

you may want to check passe-a-grill as well...it's just south of st pete beach proper, a very quiet and "town-like" place.
