Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 28, 2014
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Completed in 2003, this newer, top floor, luxury condominium is ideally located directly along the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico on St. Pete Beach. Step out onto the balcony from the living room or master suite to enjoy a spectacular sunrise or witness your slice of the beach as it comes alive. This unit gets full sun in the morning and into the early afternoon which makes it a great place for that morning cup of coffee, breakfast or lunch as well as a good spot to catch some rays!

The unit is fully furnished and professionally decorated with floor-to-ceiling mirrors that give added dimension to your living space. The fully-equipped kitchen provides for the comfort and convenience of a relaxing meal at home. The kitchen and two full baths are warmed by the upscale feel of maple cabinets and granite counter tops. There is a king-sized bed in the master bedroom, two twin beds with convenient built-in storage drawers in the second bedroom and a queen-sized sleep sofa in the living room. Cable TV is available in both bedrooms and the living room which also has a stereo with CD player and separate DVD player for your enjoyment.

Constantly updating; in 2014 we replaced the sleep sofa, dishwasher, and refrigerator and added a ceiling fan in the MBR while we were in the condo doing our customary semi-annual deep cleaning. We steam clean the upholstered furnishings and carpets, scrub the tile/grout, and change the bed-coverings to keep the unit fresh and inviting for our guests. A new DR table and chairs were added in June as well as new patio tables and chairs. Why would you consider a dated unit with original furniture or a small hotel room???

We have created a lovely master suite by updating the master bath, adding a king-sized bed, installing high-end carpeting and room-darkening drapes over sheers. The second bedroom was updated a year earlier when we added the twin platform beds with new mattresses, replaced the dresser and added a new lamp and bed-side chest. Other recent updates include the addition of a 37' flat screen tv, new entertainment center, re-covered dining room chairs and a new HVAC system. We obviously work hard to keep the place looking its best which is easy to do when you live a few miles away.

Almost forgot ~ as local owners we have no use for an owner's closet and provide this space for our guests more than doubling your closet space. After all, who wants to live out of suitcases on vacation? Between that and the storage drawers under the twin platform beds you have storage space galore!

For those folks who know the area well, you already know all of the reasons that this is such a great vacation spot. Trip Advisor named St. Pete Beach the #1 beach in the USA in March of 2012 and ranked us #5 in the world. Not enough? Former Governor Charlie Crist declared us the sunset capital of Florida replacing a dejected Key West! We have you covered on the art scene as well with downtown St. Petersburg (a mere 15 minute ride away) named the nation's #1 top arts destination for mid-sized US cities for the third year in a row by American Style Magazine. Reasons cited were the new Salvador Dali Museum, the Chihuly Collection and the Warehouse Arts District.

Did you know that there are many spring training sites in our proximity? If you are in town during March, you may be able to snag tickets to a game to see your favorite team at a reasonable price! Our hometown professional sports teams offer the opportunity to see major league events at a more modest cost than in most other stadiums around the country. The Tampa Bay Rays play in an indoor stadium less than a 15 minute ride from the condo. Popular annual events in the area include the Firestone Grand Prix, Beach Goes Pops, Gasparilla and so much more. So much to offer ~ never enough time!

Head down to the sugar white sands of our fabulous beach or simply hang out by the pool and spa. You decide. Stop by the lending library inside the onsite office to pick up the latest paperback on your way out.

Meander down the beach to the legendary and historic Don CeSar Beach Resort for an unparalleled dining experience or stroll a bit further to quaint Pass-A-Grille for a bit of shelling or to explore the unique shops and galleries. Consider casual dining at the many waterside restaurants for a relaxing evening under the stars or check out the many highly-rated off-beach restaurants. There are great rooftop bars to enjoy one of our many spectacular sunsets. No shortage of great spots to enjoy!

This lovely condo offers FREE unlimited calling within the US and Canada as well as FREE Wi-Fi access. We know that most guests have cell phones but this is a great convenience if you have limited minutes or the battery is low. Also a perk for our many Canadian guests.

We are local owners who are frequently onsite to manage and care for our unit which is reflected in the condition of our lovely condo. We strive to keep it updated and make constant improvements with the comfort of our guests always at the forefront. We love our condo and think you will too! Come stay with us ~ you'll be glad you did!

Owners are area licensed realtors. We'd love to find you a great place, too! Otherwise, we hope to see you again.

The girls weekend was just what the doctor ordered! 10 year (plus) friendships and the beach right outside our door (with cooperative weather too!) Lovely weekend, which included some karaoke (loved it). We will all be manifesting another opportunity to come again ~ with gratitude ~ Ashley, Ellie, Laura Rae, Lauren and Kim

Perfect place, perfect location, wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our wedding in St. Pete August 9th. Staying at this property was absolutely perfect for us. Not only did it work great for our two boys having their own room and bathroom, and us a separate room with an en suite, but I cannot say enough about the wonderful condo owners! Carol is a gem! She helped me with so much before we came so that I could feel comfortable coming down for our wedding. She replied promptly to all my emails and even helped me find a nail and hair salon! The location is fabulous, just a few steps to the beach, and the condo is clean and well kept. I highly recommend this property and we hope we can come stay again soon!

Amazing! Best Condo @ Vistas!!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first experience with renting a condo instead of using a hotel and let me just say.... No more hotels for me. Carol was amazing answered my many questions very fast and super helpful. The condo was beautiful clean had everything we needed and more. Honestly I cannot say enough nice things. I travel alot and this has been one of the best vacations. The location is perfect right on the beach, the pool is lovely. St Pete Beach is beautiful. Could see dolphins right from the balcony while drinking coffee in the morning. Beach is quiet great for getting some sun, swimming looking for shells... great beach wonderful restaurants great bars/happy hours. We loved Woody's Waterfront great happy hour/food, the Hut on John's pass was good. Dali Muesum is worth a day trip. Wagon Wheel flea market on weekends. Crabby Bills and Snappers on Gulf Blvd. had great food close by. O'Maddy's in Gulfport is worth the short drive. I would not hesitate to recommend this to friends family even strangers. And I will most certainly plan another trip myself!

Lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5
A very clean and spacious condo. Comfortable beds, TV's in all rooms, good size bathrooms. Perfect situation right by a beautiful beach. The pool and hot tub very well maintained and in the sun all day. Shade available if desired. Just seconds to walk across a beautifully clean beach to float in the warm gulf water. Quiet around the pool, everyone in the area were pleasant and friendly. Just the ticket for a relaxing beach holiday. Carol and Dave are very competent and efficient hosts. Nice people to deal with. We'll definitely hope to plan a return visit in the future. Cheers! Derek, Debbie, Kiera and Roisin fro London, England.
