About jeff m. solomon

Sharda and I take great joy in this unique property a - piece of Florida's heritage!

On the bay where the beach meets the bay.

Courteous and friendly.

When you are here you are at home.


Think Bee Wop a Doo Dah.

Think 60's retro with unique themed condominiums in a small private Florida jungle retreat.

Take a break from the large, faceless, Mc Hotels.

At Whispers you will NOT lose your family between the lobby and the pool!

This is old time Florida.

Escape the swarms of strangers, crowded pools and relax in the ambiance of a more genteel environment.

Lush jungle gardens and huge trees to shade you, and cool breezes fan you by the pool.

Does this sound right for you?

Then you will love a Florida Heritage vacation, a blast from the past.

The Bee Wop a Doo Dah.

We will take you back to the days when the family piled into Dads Buick Roadmaster 'Woodie' and headed south for an adventure to the pristine beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.

Relive an era before the large 'Box Hotels' popped up on every corner.

Before McDonalds. An era when the corner soda shop was the place to hang out!

This blast from the past has just 8 units set in a lush tropical garden.

Every unit has a unique themed decor, such as Oriental, Africa, Hawaii, England etc.

This is real honest to goodness American apple pie, old time, down home Florida with all its eccentricities.

Whispers is a very small and extremely private bay front property.

Lose your cares.

Feel human again!

Your patronage helps us preserve our Vintage Florida Heritage.

The property is updated while still preserving the essential elements, colors and feel of our Florida heritage.

jeff m. solomon purchased this condo in 2000

There is a sleeper sofa in the living room.

We take care to ensure that the condo is clean, well appointed and updated.

Being a Florida heritage property we have carefully maintained the charm and essence of a bygone era.

Original tile work in the bathrooms hearkens back to a a time when pastel colors were the fashion.

Reminiscent of the days when father (or grand dad) took trips in that old wood paneled station wagon to the undiscovered beaches of Florida. Whispers, is an award winning property that has preserved that little bit of Florida History for posterity.

This is a small, intimate hideaway.

Escape the crowds and find peace, rest and your own home away from home in the sunshine.

Fish from the private dock and have your catch on the pool side BBQ for dinner.

Overlooking a large pristine bay look for dolphins and manatees from our secluded pool patio.

What makes this condo unique

A short and easy walk to the beach, shops and entertainment puts all the attractions of Treasure Island on your door step.

We are on a tropical island in the heart of the Gulf of Mexico. Surrounded by water on all sides. Our Backyard is dolphin alley where dolphins can be seen year round and the Gulf of Mexico meets the bay.

Spa and Retreat Facilities: Affordable Beach Condo offers a vacation beach experience with affordable, well appointed condominium rentals.

Area Attractions:

Treasure Island is very laid back. Think Ernest Hemingway's Old Florida with live blues bars, great sea food restaurants and informal island life.

Nothing represents the character of this bygone era better than Whispers Affordable Beach Condos and nearby Johns Pass Historic Village.

Johns Pass Village is just up the road. A shanty fishing wharf filled with eclectic seafood restaurants, small galleries and shops, and where the daily catch is still brought home each evening and cooked fresh for you right off the boat!

Close by are many fine restaurants, both fast food and fine dining. Fishing charters, boat and jet ski rentals, para sailing and the best white sand beaches in the USA!

Quiet and personal

  • 4 of 5

Away from the noise and traffic of Gulf Blvd, Whispers Resort has only 9 condos, which means you actually meet and talk with your neighbors at the pool, get news on fishing and beach expeditions, and make new friends, including the owner, Jeffrey. It wasn't super luxurious, beds were lumpy and need replacing, but the private patio and gardens made it seem like we were miles away from the traffic clogged, noisy, and hectic Gulf Blvd, where most of the other condos were situated. We walked to restaurants, the grocery store, beach, and explored the Island. Fished from the dock by the pool and watched dolphins, and relaxed after sunset.

Owner's Response: Hi Anita, First let me say that we loved having you stay with us. Whispers has been updated and is continually updated. Whispers is a Retro Florida Resort and we have preserved the look and the feel of the 1960's Florida Motel Experience - so the whole idea of staying here compared to a chrome and glass "Mc Motel" is to enjoy the experience of a throw back in time. That is what Florida is all about and why Disney and Universal are popular - its all about the fantasy and the experience. That is what we have created here at Whispers - it is the experience of old Florida. The genuine old time feather beds are a unique touch - however you should straighten out the bed in the morning so that the "lumps" flatten out. : ) Come back and see us again. Best wishes Jeffrey and Sharda

Great location. Clean and welll kept property!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best two week vacation at Whispers resort. We checked into the Oriental suite 1 BR 1 BA with 2 dogs and 2 small children. The suite was very nice clean and well maintained. When we found out the executive house was available Jeffery was more than accommodating and we will able to vacation in pure luxury with more room than we could ever dream of! The property is so close to everything you can walk to the beach and restaurants and shops. The heated pool was a plus and we loved the views of the bay. We will be back for sure to whispers! The owners are so pleasant and hospitable it makes you feel like you are home. Look no further this is the place to stay!

Great Stay...

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Whispers and it is central located to everything. You couldn't ask for a better location, the view of the bay is beautiful with dolphins stopping by almost daily as well as loads of pelicans and other exotic birds. The beach to gulf is just a short walk away. Of course you have the Publix grocery store close by. The condo itself had everything you need and the pool was wonderful and heated. Recommended for families or people on their own needing a safe and pleasant place to stay. Easy to get around.

Loved the condo...

  • 5 of 5

The heated pool and dock view plus the BBQ is water front.

Loungers and seats were adequate at the pool.

Recommend Ricky T's beach bar and restaurant. Beach access just across the

street, and the supermarket is one block - its a Publix.

Condo was clean and had interesting decor in line with the "themed"

motifs of the property.

Nice size clean pool; quiet location and delightful small property.

Highly recommended

Whispers is amazing and very hidden away!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of about 6 people ready for some fun in the sun and absolutely no one was disappointed. The location was amazing, and the community itself was safe and beautiful. Loved the gardens and the tropical gardens – pool was great and fishing off the dock was great. Recommend Ricky T’s Bar for great atmosphere and live music every night – one block to walk.

Owner's Response: Hi Martin, I enjoyed having your group stay with us you were all very laid back and seemed to be having a really good time. Whispers is very secluded even through we are in the very heart of Treasure Island. Bars like Ricky T's are a block away and yet when you are at Whispers you feel like you have left the world behind! Love to see you back soon! Best Jeffrey and Sharda
