Guestbook comments from the owner

Scott- Your condo was greatly appreciated. The condo was fully stocked for our visit and made the arrival easy. The weather was great and we got in a lot of activities. We use the golf clubs in the the attic like you suggested. It saved us a rental fee. Thank You, Thank You!! Carol

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

Very quiet. We brought my husbands grandmother with us because she wanted to go back to florida before she died so we brought her. Gram developed dementia about 3 months ago so she may not remember much about the trip but we sure will. She was smiling the whole time. This was an experience we will never forget. I liked the features of the automatic lock doors. Very clean and more than i expected. My husband and our family will be using this loction for our future spot. Thank for a wonderful experience!

Everything was fine.

  • 4 of 5

Was a bit disappointed not being able to have a beverage at the pool area during a vacation. I really enjoyed the keyless entry. The home was comfortable for the most part. A few more dishes and utensils would have been nice but made due. Having a washer and dryer in unit was very nice. We enjoyed our vacation. Thank you!

Lovely location & comfortable accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Scott's condo. This location is perfect for anyone who enjoys being outdoors.

The pool is conveniently located & fishing from the dock yielded a variety of catches.

Fort DeSoto Park was our go-to place for the lovely beaches, kayaking, bicycling & watching the sail-boarders.

A short drive to St. Pete Beach & Downtown St. Pete.

End of the day dinner at Billy's - right across the street from the condo- very relaxing with live music in the dining room & the outside loft bar.

Scott's attention to detail in the information he sent us was very helpful.

One caveat, I'm an older lady with protesting knees. This unit is on the second floor with 3 short flights up - so, if your knees protest too, you might want to take that into account.

Very Impressed!

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect. It's as close as you can be to Ft. Desoto without being in a tent and that was our main destination. We were also able to visit St. Pete beach, Sawgrass Lake Park, Clearwater Aquarium, and Clearwater beach. This was not our average beach trip considering we saw dolphins and a nice manatee right at the property. You can snorkel right there at the dock and see shells, fish, and even a manatee! We do wish we had brought the kayak because we could have kayaked right from the property. We have never seen such a variety of wildlife in one vacation. We saw an alligator at Sawgrass, a rather friendly blue heron, sand dollars, starfish and unfortunately a stingray at Ft. Desoto. The hot tub is excellent if you get stung or otherwise. The place was so well stocked there was even a needle to dig the barbs out. You can literally just bring your toothbrush. The beds are comfy and the air works great along with the wifi and cable. Thanks for allowing us to stay.
