How about a Great "priced right" vacation directly on the beach this
year with a fantastic view of the Gulf from the big balcony and many rooms in the condo. That's right. This top floor unit is located in beautiful N Redington Beach (smack in between famous Clearwater & St Pete Beach)and equipped with all the comforts of home including wireless internet, just bring your
You will be thrilled from the minute you open the door and see the
beautiful blue water of the Gulf of Mexico. Watch the seagulls and
pelicans glide by so close you can almost touch them! Check out the
Great Blue Herons as they wait for their dinner or better yet take a
dip in the Gulf or our heated pool and steaming hot Jacuzzi! Did I mention the sunsets? A spectacular show as you relax on the balcony. Ahh, and that's not all. We are right next to the Doubletree Hotel which has music on the
weekends, a lively outdoor tiki bar, and a restaurant. Oh, and don't
forget your fishing pole, the fish are jumping out of the water!
We have had an absolutely wonderful time here! Your condo is so well equipped and comfortable that we felt "at home" immediately. Everything was in fine order when we got here. Mary Lou really appreciated the new non-stick skillets. I'm sorry to say we broke the smallest wine glass that was here; but we replaced it with a new set of 4 wine glasses so your next guests can drink a toast to this wonderful vacation home.
We did not find the cooler that you mentioned in your earlier e mail, but it was not a problem as we had brought our small cooler; and, being right on the beach, we didn't need one anyway. The beach is fantastic and the pool is well maintained, providing hours of enjoyment. We've also found everything we need within walking distance or a very short drive.
It would be hard to beat the view from your balcony, and the sunsets are magnificent. It's going to be hard to leave; but we will definitely be out by 11 a.m. on Saturday morning. This has been a dream vacation for us, and a great way to start my wife's retirement. We'd love to consider a return visit, and hope you would like to have us back. Thank you so much.
Walks on the beach. Collecting shells. Taking a dip in the water.
Watching the seabirds. Ah, how sweet it is when you are directly on
the Gulf! I love those balmy breezes. ZZZZzzzzz.
Food! There are MANY restaurants nearby including Salt Rock Grill,
the Wine Cellar, the Frog Pond, the Conch Republic to name a few.
There are dozens more. Oh did I mention Crabby Bills? Fun for the
kids and freshest seafood around.
Shop across the street at some of the local stores or head down to
John's Pass, 5 minutes away to spend the day browsing in tons of
novelty shops and dining in one of the many restaurants. Several
boats leave for daily cruises from the Pass, take one. Or if you
prefer, rent jet skis and head to the Gulf yourself! Or maybe you
want to Parasail. Check it all out at John's Pass. By the way, you
will find tons of beach shops and rental places all along the beach
where you can rent bikes, motor bikes, etc.
Several supermarkets are nearby as well as CVS and other stores.
If you prefer to go to the mall, Tyrone Mall is minutes away as well
as Target and Walmart.
For the fisherman out there, grab a beach chair and head down to the
beach. I have seen tons of schools of fish. Don't be surprised if
a heron joins you! You can also walk the 2 blocks to the nearby
pier where for a small fee, you can fish off the end. Of course,
you can go out on the many fishing boats that take off from
Madeira or Clearwater Beach.
Also in St Pete, there is The Florida International Museum, the Marina, the Pier, Baywalk, etc. Many nights there are concerts, some free. Arts and crafts shows are also going on many occasions!
Tampa is 40 mins away where you can visit Busch Gardens, Lowry Park
Zoo, Florida Aquarium,Tampa Bay Performing Arts Centre, Tampa Bay
Bucs Football, T.B. Lightning Hockey etc, Yankee Stadium etc.
It is approx 90 mins to Orlando attractions such as Disney World,
Universal Studios, Animal Kingdom, Epcot etc.
Numerous top quality golf couses are available in the St Petes/
Tampa Bay area.
Oh yes, there are tons of things to do! Of course, you may just
want to relax on the beach! Whatever your pleasure, Enjoy!
