Property Details

Updated: Mar 27, 2015
Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

The Pelican’s Cove is a fantastic end-unit villa with the best views overlooking Boca Ciega bay! So close to world famous beaches: Fort DeSoto, Pass-A-Grille and St. Pete Beach are all a short 5 to 10 minute drive from home! This bright, clean villa boasts new carpet, fresh paint, a remodeled kitchen with Quartz countertops in June 2013, and all new, comfortable furnishings. High speed and WiFi internet as well as unlimited long distance calling to US and Canada are included. The Boardwalk Pasta and Seafood restaurant (a local favorite!), the Tokyo Bay Japanese Restaurant, and Subway are a short walk down the road. We also supply a FL toll transponder as an added convenience that works on the three tolls surrounding Isla del Sol!

Walk a few steps from your parking spot to the front door of your villa on the same level. Outdoor stairs lead you down to a beautiful, ground level pool and the bike room. There's also convenient elevator access to get down to the ground floor if desired.

Interested in more than fantastic beaches and relaxing by the pool that gets sun all day? Then head to downtown to St. Petersburg, only 15 minutes away, for lively dining, museums, galleries, shopping, professional sports and more! You are only 30 minutes to Tampa: International airports, professional sports, fine dining and more! And it should go without saying that challenging golf courses are what this area is known for! If you are a golfer, the private Yacht and Country Club down the street offers summer guest memberships May - September. We can also provide you with basic info if you're interested in this. Clearwater and Sarasota are also about a 40 minute drive and Orlando, Disney World, or Busch Gardens makes a great day trip!

We know there are quite a few options to stay on our wonderful island, Isla del Sol, but there are not many with the prime location, serene views, and owners who take pride in their villa and have spent much time and resources making it as comfortable and convenient as possible for our guests. We want The Pelican’s Cove to be your home away from home. We look forward to having you!

Here’s a detailed listing of the villa and the amenities:

Master Bedroom: Brand new king size Simmons pillow top mattress, ample storage, 32” HDTV, cable, ceiling light and fan, walk-in closet, access to private Master bath, stunning northern water views.

2nd Bedroom: 2 twin Beds, 32” HDTV, cable, access to balcony, ceiling light and fan, oversized windows with west/northwest water front view

Bathrooms: 2 full baths with tubs and overhead showers. New vanities, mirrors, paint and accessories.

Kitchen: Extensively remodeled in June 2013 with plenty of cabinetry and Quartz countertops. New microwave, dishwasher, new oven/range, and refrigerator.

Dining Area: Well lit area with pass through to kitchen. 4-person dining table and chairs. There are additional folding chairs located in the balcony closet if there is a need for additional seating.

Living Room: Gorgeous views! 42” HDTV with Blu Ray DVD player and HD cable. Comfortable, full-size convertible couch that sleeps 2.

Balcony and outdoor features: Watch the dolphins, birds, and the passing boats from the balcony or from the lovely shore grounds and community pier. Or check on your family members down by the pool off to your left. New outdoor ceiling fans add to your comfort. The sunsets never cease to amaze and you have a front row seat to enjoy the fireworks displays!

Please contact us with any questions you may have about the villa or the surrounding areas.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the stay very much and we felt so comfortable as we would be at home. The location is very quite and fully equipped with everything you need for daily life. We enjoyed especially the balcony and the exceptional view on the water with all the animals around. A spectacle of life from morning to dawn with all the birds, flying fishes, dolphins, sail- and fishing boats.

It was like to be in a constant movie theater for us ! Just wonderful !

(As I am writing this comment, dolphins are swimming by and pelicans are diving for fishes :-) )

Swiss people usually are very conservative with compliments, but this is the best place we only could dream of ! Really ! Not too big, not too small for 3-4 people and only a few minutes by car from everything (Beaches, shopping facilities, restaurants, golf course over the street, museums, theaters, sport stadiums and historic locations).

And something else that is important: The hosts Nick and Jenny are just amazing ! Always supportive if needed and with a good taste for furniture.

Thanks so much !!!

End-Unit Villa Overlooking the Bay and Sunsets!
St Petersburg St Petersburg Area

A wonderful apartment; a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
The corner apartment, with its great water views from the bedrooms and the living room was so well equipped it was like moving into one's own home; from the bed rooms to the living room to the bathrooms to the kitchen, every thing one needed was provided. The near-by reserved parking space added to the convenience of all. The apartment was immaculate upon my arrival and the information provided by the owners was complete. In sum, this apartment must be one of the best deals is Isla del Sol, and I envy those who will enjoy it.

Wonderful views and friendly neighbours.

We had a wonderful month at Pelican Cove. Jenny and Nick were both great to work with. We have rented many properties through VRBO/Home Away and I would have to say they were by far the quickest to respond to any questions. The condo itself has a great view of Boca Ciega and is very quiet for sleeping. It is one of the best stocked properties I have ever stayed at - from the Sun Pass Transponder to q-tips to cooking oil. The other residents of the complex were so welcoming and friendly - that is not always the case. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no problem recommending this property to other vacationers.

We had such an enjoyable vacation at this property that we have already re-booked for 2015! The condo was exactly as described (gorgeous) and came fully stocked with everything you might need - from toiletries to cooking utensils to linens . The wifi was an important perk because we used it daily to find local activities and attractions. The condo development itself was immaculately maintained: the pool was sparkling, and the location itself was perfect for enjoying all of St Pete's restaurants and of course the beach. Most importantly, Jenny and Nick were always a pleasure to deal with. This was our first VRBO experience and they were extremely helpful. Their prompt replies were one of the reasons we selected this property - it was completely stress free from beginning to end.

Best we ever had !!!

  • 5 of 5
This was the best condo we ever had in Florida. It is very well equiped, all is very new, the beds are very comfortable, it was a very clean condo with very nice furniture.
The area is wonderful and the condo has the best view from all rooms.
Nothing is better than a breakfast on the balcony of this condo with a view over the bay watching the dolphins.
And the best of all .... the owner and his mother !!!
They help us with every question we had ... and we can write and talk in German.

Thank you again Nick and Jenny

Wonderful location and property

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 arrived for a month long stay and was pleasantly surprised with the beautifully appointed unit where thoughtful touches and the nice decor immediately made us feel we were going to enjoy our stay. The owner, Jenny, couldn't have been more responsive to our needs and dealing with her was a pleasure. The views and location can't be beat, with easy access to St. Pete's beach and the near by restaurants and supermarkets. Our kids caught so many fish from the surrounding waters, they had the time of their lives. We enjoyed seeing the abundant wildlife, and made some nice day trips to Weeki Wachee, Busch Gardens and the Sunday Thai food stands at the buddhist temple. Having the pool and hot tub just steps away made it easy to go down for a quick swim or soak anytime of the day. All the things you need for an easy going, comfortable vacation with exquisite views all day long. Extra kudos for the super comfortable beds. Just like sleeping in a nice hotel every night.

Activity and Interests

Entertainment: Fishing is common among the area's residents and guests. Pull on your waders and grab your pole or net and fish right in your backyard. Your family and friends will be 50 feet behind you, cheering you on from the balcony. Or grab your pole and tackle box and cast away from the community's fishing pier.

A few books and games will be waiting for you in your villa, but you can also check out the puzzles and entertainment going in the association's community area. Casa Del Mar 3 residents and guests are very welcoming and social!
