What makes this Condo unique
The heated pool and well kept grounds with water views and the serenity were what brought us to this property.

100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Communication is great with Kelly and Scott. They where our saving grace when Eckerd college closed, which left us needing lodging in 2 days from arrival to help drive our granddaughter home to Arizona, They allowed us to move our reservation from May to our needed arrival date. Made it stress free to get our granddaughter in to the unit with ease. Check in was very easy. Unit is clean and has anything one could think of or need. it's a nice area. This was not a pleasure trip so didn't spend any time in the area. Did enjoy the deck looking out to the water and a stroll to the BBq area where we saw a group of Manatee just before leaving. I will book this unit again as soon as all this uncertainty with the coronia virus is over. The flexibility on the cancellation policy because of the virus was also a top reason that I highly recommend this home owner. When I was hearing horrible stories of other Eckerd parents having issues with cancellation. This homeowners was more then fair and flexible. I truly want to thank Scott and Kelly for working with us, especially when my fingers sent messages before I was done typing. May they be blessed beyond measure in these uncertain times.. made it home safely!
Thank you again

Judy, thank you for the review. We are glad we could help in such a crazy time for the world. Glad you all got home safely and hopefully we will have you back when all this craziness is over.
The property is very tired and in need of a refurb
I was ignoring responding because I have no intention of coming back and just wrote off the experience as "never again" VRBO keeps reminding me and I have a lot of time on my hands considering the social isolation initiative so her goes. Plus
Landlord owner communications. VRBO did not provide me with entry information till one day after my arrival. I had to send a request to my landlord who responds very quickly.
He also responded very quickly when our toilet leaked into the unit below us. It was fixed the next day. The seal was worn out and being an owner of two properties understand that stuff happens.
Built in in washer and dryer. Worked well.
Great water pressure
Heating and air conditioning worked well.
Attractive pictures on the wall
Friendly people who were engaging around the pool and patio
Unit is very dark. Dark furniture, dark walls and dusty dark venetian blinds
Beds were terrible. Sheets very old and worn
Towels need replacing
Bathrooms circa 1990's. Caulking moldy
Furniture very old, lumpy and past its best before date
Cupboards and fridge were stuffed with old non perishable food. No room for us to store anything
Closets full of old and worn out water toys
Medicine cabinets full of personal items
Kitchen/Dining room furniture. One piece, dark and ugly carved hutch, that was not in the pictures, looked like something from a german castle. Full of stuff again, both in and on top and took up so much room that we were left with two table chairs instead of four around the tables as in the picture.
This was like renting that "rustic" cabin in the woods that you see in the movies. .
As I indicated, we have no plans of returning. This unit is way too expensive for what it delivers. This complex appears to be popular because of the people and proximity to the bay and park. The unit to both my wife and myself unfortunately is so much of a negative that I will give that up. She was ready to leave after one day but I persevered much to my chagrin because I made to decision to rent it.
The place needs a dumpster cleaning.
I would add pictures but I don't know how and I don't think it is required.
John, thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, not everyone’s taste in interiors is the same. Not sure what you mean by dark walls, as they are a neutral color. The bedding including sheets, was updated not long ago. Many of the items left in the cupboards and bathroom are for renters’ use, including the water toys and we have had many great responses of appreciation from families for having these items available. This is all clearly outlined in the description and the rental agreement that you signed at the time of booking. We are currently working with a contractor to update the master bath and looking at getting some new furniture. As you can imagine with constant bookings it is hard to get these things scheduled without disturbing tenants.
Holiday September 2019
We had a great time and the pool was excellent because of the lovely temperature each day. Very clean and comfortable sun loungers.
Property was well located for all local amenities and beaches
Was clean and we enjoyed our time
Hope to return next year
Glad you enjoyed your stay John. We look forward to seeing you again.
Best July Ever!!!
We spent the whole month of July on the property, and it felt like a paradise, by the ocean and so close to Fort De Sotto Park and all of the beaches. We enjoyed our stay very much, spent every day at the beach and enjoyed rollerblading along the bike path. We appreciated having beach chairs and beach umbrellas at the property. Also having the full kitchen on the property gave us opportunity to prepare ourselves light meals. Also very convenient was having washer and dryer on the property. It was a big plus for us since we were there for more than four weeks. It was very hard for us to leave this place, we highly recommend it to everyone who is looking for a "home-a-way" by the ocean.
Renata, thank you so much for the great review. We are so glad you enjoyed your time at the condo and the surrounding area. Let us know if you plan to come back in the future.
All the best,
Loved this quiet area on the way to Fort DeSoto Park, my favorite park. The pool and the hot tub were right on the intercoastal, beautiful ! The condo had comfy beds, two full baths and a kitchen with everything you need. A little view of the water from the balcony. I would stay again !
Swimming at Fort Desoto Beach and St. Pete Beach are within a few miles of Condo. Kayak activities across the street. Boat dock and fishing at the condo complexes fishing dock. Numerous world class golf courses within minutes drive. Scuba diving nearby. Enjoy Major League Baseball games as well as spring training in the area.
