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!

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 !!!
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!
