Enjoy Relaxation on the Water...in a Tropical Paradise!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps

What a beautiful, coastal casual way to relax! Escape to the tropical barrier island of Isla Del Sol, near St. Petersburg, Florida! The condo complex reminds you of a Disney World resort - not a palm frond out of place, not a weed in site. Like being in a reasonably-priced resort you can rent by the month! And so quiet and serene - a great place to totally relax.

The first thing you will notice is the beautiful boardwalk floors throughout the unit. Pristine, fully furnished, first floor, one-level (no stairs!) condo with screened-in porch PLUS largest deck in complex overlooking fountain in Bahia del Mar's private salt water lake, adjacent to Boca Ciego Bay. 24-hour security, free in-condo Wi-Fi, pedestrian-friendly and bicycle-friendly community. Roomy condo includes two bedrooms (master has king-sized bed, flatscreen TV, DVD, and screened porch access; guest bedroom has a queen-sized bed and guest bathroom has updated quartz countertop), two full bathrooms (master bath just updated with new walk-in shower), updated, bright kitchen with everything you need to dine in or have a dinner party. Also features a clean, contemporary dining area, relaxing living room featuring twin Lazy-Boy recliners (ahhhhhh!) and HD LED/LCD flat screen TV (with Blue Ray DVD player), and new washer and dryer.

Imagine taking your meals at a table that always has a waterfront view and has perfectly manicured grounds with a backdrop of tall, royal palms. The condo area pool is heated in the winter and chilled in the summer. Or you can relax in the hot tub, located next to the pool.

Condo rental policy requires monthly stays only - but you will want to stay longer!

About the Owner

We live in Atlanta and discovered this hidden treasure through our close friends. We live around the corner from each other in Atlanta AND Isla Del Sol! Originally from Pittsburgh, we moved to Atlanta and loved to vacation on the Gulf Coast. As soon as we visited Isla while vacationing with friends, we knew we had to invest in our own place! And we love sharing it with others who wan to escape to a Florida gulf vacation spot.

So much MORE than we expected!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was so much more than we expected….. We based our decision to rent on the area as well as the pictures of the condo online. We got so much more! The pictures just don’t do it justice… The area is wonderful, convenient to local beaches, restaurants and local attractions. The surprise for us was the condo itself. "Immaculate" comes to mind first and foremost to describe the condo and then the furnishings. The condo has been newly re-furnished and the owners have done an exceptional job of adding art and tasteful accessories. What an added treat for us. We so enjoyed having our coffee each morning in the screened part of the very large deck overlooking the water and the fountain. Late in the afternoon, after sunbathing on the outside part of the deck, we would enjoy cocktails overlooking the water as we prepared our dinner. We enjoy cooking so the fully stocked kitchen offered us every utensil we could ever need. When we decided to eat out, the local restaurants were superb. Everything was at our fingertips and everthing so comfy! It is so nice to get more than you expect, and this place offered us much more. Finally, the owners were a joy to work with. Jim and Susan were wonderful. Thank you both for a wonderful experience and don’t forget, we’re coming back next year!!!

This waterfront condo is extremely well equipped and is very comfortable and nicely decorated. A special feature is the very large deck which offers a panoramic view of the water and surrounding area. We will be back.

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent two months in this beautiful condo. Not only was this condo decorated with a coastal theme that matched the surrounding scenery it was close to many restaurants and attractions. The swimming pool and hot tub was extremely clean and well maintained. When you stay in this waterfront location you will not want to leave.....

Owner's Response: We love sharing our condo and the area is so gorgeous that it takes your breath away. You KNOW you are on vacation the minute you turn into Bahia del Mar. Being outside on the deck sitting on a lounge chair watching the flying fish and enjoying the waterview is so soothing. Inside is just as relaxing when you watch TV sitting on one of our Lazy-Boy recliners or sitting on the screened-in porch playing cards with friends. What a getaway!

It is an affordable tropical island that is impeccably landscaped and maintained. It reminded us of visits to Disneyworld -- the place is perfect. The pristine blue water, the myriad of palms, the gorgeous Florida sunsets is too beautiful not to share! We've updated our first floor condo to reflect a calm, casual home away from home. We've made sure that you have everything you need at your home away from home
