Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps
This 980 sq. ft. unit is a two bedroom, one bath with a den/office/fireplace with a spectacular view of Tampa Bay from your private balcony. Elegantly furnished with upscale "Tommy Bahama" style furniture, linens, and cooking utensils. Located in the beautiful, gated, waterfront complex of the Grand Venezia. The unit features granite countertops, tile flooring, inside laundry, crown molding, trey ceiling, and large walk-in closet.
The master bedroom is large with a king size bed as well as a large flat screen tv. The second bedroom has two twin beds. Both bedrooms have terrific views facing the water. My family and I also use this as our vacation/retirement home so we were very selective. The condos in the Grand Venezia are beautiful Mediterranean style villas, and only three stories high so it doesn't have that "highrise" look. It is peaceful, and relaxing just being there. Some of the wildlife that we have be seen on walks, or from the balcony are manatees, dolphins, and pink flamingos.
Only 10 miles from Tampa International airport makes this an easy drive. Close to many restaurants, small shops, large stores, malls, cinemas, and all the amenities of a big city while still secluded within the Mediterranean paradise of a gated community near the Gulf of Mexico.
Great condo. Great location.
About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the owner
We enjoyed our stay and found the condo very comfy. The views from the balcony were wonderful and the kids enjoyed watching the fish jump out of the water. We had a great time and hopefully we will return in the near future!

Great condo. Great location.
Very nice people and great location!
The best part about the location is being so close to the bay. The water that the balcony overlooks has mantees, dolphins, and fish jumping. Very nice view of the marine life right out the window.
At the end of the property there is a sun deck, a big gazebo style deck where you can see the bridge and much more marine life. Great place to fish if you like to do it.
The bathroom in the house is roomy, the kitchen has what you need. The furniture looks nice. I found it a nice place to relax and the price was fair.
Thank you to the nice people who helped us through the booking process and answered all my questions. I will plan to stay again in the future. :)
My morning walks, alongside the water and overlooking Tampa Bay, was delightful.
I spotted dolphins, manatees, ducks, pelicans and Blue Heron from the balcony of the condo, while eating breakfast. It was a great way to start the day. The gym and pool were also very good and very close to the condo.
The condo is close to the shops and a large variety of restaurants. A drive to Clearwater Beach (and many other beaches) is about 15 minutes away.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo and would highly recommend it.
Throughout the process of renting the condo we dealt with Catherine. Catherine was very helpful, very professional, easily obtainable, polite and prompt.
This vacation was easy, relaxing, enjoyable and stress free.
