"Barb's Beachfront" Smack Dab on Beach! Gorgeous Views!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 18, 2014
Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

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

laptop!

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Rest and relaxation plus!

We had a wonderful relaxing time at Barbs Beachfront. Everything was exactly as described and photographed on her site. The condo was immaculate and very comfortable; and the views from the balcony were awesome. The sunsets~amazing! If ever we have a chance to visit the Gulf Coast again Barbs is definately where we will be staying. There is plenty of activities to do in the area and also close enough for a nice day trip to beautiful Sanibel Island. Thank you Barb for a wonderful relaxing place to vacation.

EXACTLY as advertised on VRBO!

  • 5 of 5
Your Condo was PERFECT for our family of 7! All the kids had their own bed, even the sofa bed was comfortable, the kitchen was stocked with absolutely everything we needed, awesome location, LOVED your hats and books, and the chairs and umbrellas to take to beach! Not to mention your attention to ALL details including directions, keys, etc. We had the best time and hope to revisit! This was our 3rd snowiest winter on record, so 80 degrees and sunshine were just what we needed!

Great family break

  • 5 of 5
Family of 8 ranging from 4 to 65. Great location right on beach. Grandkids loved the sea and the pool. Condo was perfect for the eight of us. Often sat on the veranda watching the sea, the sunset, pelicans and other birds diving for fish or just floating around, and devil rays swimming in the shallows.

Highly recommend this condo for any age group

Great Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
Barb's beachfront property was fantastic. There was a total of 8 people (4 adults and 4 kids, ages 8,6,3,2) and there was plenty of room in the condo. The pictures are very accurate and do not do justice for just how big the place is. And the place is literally right on the beach. The views at night were amazing and we could not have asked for a better place to stay on our vacation. The bedroom with the queen beds has a very large closet for storage and is connected to one of the bathrooms. The master bedroom has a large sliding door to the patio and it has it's own bathroom as well. And all 3 rooms have their own TV's plus a large TV in the living room. And Barb was very easy to work with from the time we booked the condo to the time we left. They were re-paving the parking lots while we were there and Barb gave us plenty of notice and instructions on where to park. Barb's Beachfront was exactly what we were looking for and we definitely plan on coming back in the future. Thanks again, Barb, for a fantastic week!!

First Beach Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
With a soon-to-be retiree in our family, we thought we would try our first beach vacation. Our adult children suggested VRBO and we found Barb's Beachfront Condo to be the best choice for our family. This was our first VRBO rental, and Barb was very easy to work with, answering all of our questions in a timely manner and offering tips and advice about things to do/see, etc. in the North Redington Beach area.

The photos displayed in the listing are true photos. The condo is set up just the way you see it in the photos, and we immedately felt comfortable. Two of the bedrooms are large, the third bedroom is a little small (maybe 10x12), but, really, you're only in the bedroom to sleep anyway! We slept 6 adults comfortably.

The condo looks west with a beautiful view of the Gulf with wide floor-to-ceiling windows, and there are windows in the two smaller bedrooms on the east side with a view of the street and bay. Great airflow when you don't need the air conditioning on!

The kitchen is well stocked with pretty much all we needed to prepare meals. If you have inclement weather, there's a Publix down the road with a Red Box where you can rent DVDs (there is a DVD player connected to the living room TV).

Other reviews will provide more details about the area. We all decided our favorite restaurant is The Conch right down the street within a short walking distance.

If you haven't used VRBO or stayed at Barb's Beachfront Condo, we highly recommend it! Just do it!

Thank you, Barb, for your attention to the details and for making our first beach vacation a joy! It'll be a long time before we forget the sounds of the ocean and seagulls!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed "Barb's Beachfront", Terri. It really was a pleasure working with you. I have such wonderful guests! Do come back!

Location

Activity and Interests

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!
