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. HERE IS THE EXPERIENCE WE AIM TO PROVIDE FOR YOU: 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.

Why jeff m. solomon chose Treasure Island
Affordable Beach Condos is a place of refuge and retreat. It is a vintage Florida property lovingly preserved and surrounded by lush tropical Florida gardens. There is a new pool, fishing dock, and wonderful water side views. There are full kitchen with four top stove, oven, full size refrigerator, microwave , coffee maker and all mod cons.

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. OUTSIDE INFORMATION: Free parking, free cable TV, Free Wi Fi Internet, CD Player, DVD player, linens, towels, etc., are included. New Heated Pool and New Dock, BBQ Pool Side.

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!
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
We really enjoyed our time here. The place overall is very cute and quaint. Our unit was clean and comfortable. With that being said, it’s not a super fancy hotel, so don’t expect that. It has all the basic amenities you could hope for, it’s clean, convenient, and allows pets which was great for me. The pool is great, possibly my favorite part of the whole place. We were close to everything. We were able to walk to the grocery store, restaurants, and beach writhing 5-10 minutes. Great location. I would stay again.
I enjoyed having you stay. Thank you for taking care of your condo and leaving it clean and cared for!
You are welcome back any time!
Whispers Boutique Condos is a preservation project of an original Florida Resort from the 1960's.
Here is how I describe it:
Whispers is a beautiful, small property of 9 individual units located right in the Heart of the Gulf Beaches Town of Treasure Island.
It has lush tropical gardens featuring a veritable "jungle" of unique plants.
There is a large, water front heated communal salt water pool, a BBQ, a fishing and boat dock.
We try to fulfill all your dreams of a hidden tropical getaway that grandpa and grandma had back in the day.
Whispers is a Retro Florida Resort.
We have lovingly preserved the look and the feel of the 1960's Florida Experience for the past twenty plus years that my wife and I have owned it.
The whole idea of staying At Whispers is to get away from a chrome and glass "Mc Motel" and to enjoy the experience of a unique "throw back in time".
That is what Florida is all about and that is why Disney and Universal are so popular - its all about the fantasy and the unique experience.
Whispers takes you back to the 1960's, the days of the corner soda shop, and grandpa taking his old "woodie" station wagon down to Florida and the kids arguing all the way down who is better - the Beach Boys or the Beatles or do you like Elvis?
Grandpa hollerin' "Get a haircut why don't you? You look like a girl!"
We have created Whispers - the experience of old Florida.
I hope that many others will share our love, as you did.
Quiet and personal
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.
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.

Great location. Clean and welll kept property!
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!

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.
We appreciated how enthusiastic your kids were seeing dolphins and getting up close to the pelicans!
Thanks so much for taking such good care of our condo - we appreciate caring guests like yourself.
Please come back and see us again soon.

Loved the condo...
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.
Guests always love to know what is close by and of interest, and so thank you for helping out, I am sure future guests will appreciate knowing just how close everything is to Whispers and how easy it is to get around.
Thank you as well for helping us keep our condos clean - we appreciate your taking good care of it.
You are welcome back any time.

"Shelling" is a favorite pastime, as is dolphin
watching and spotting the wide variety of spoonbills, sandpipers, herons, pelicans and wild birds "clamming" on the seashore as you wiggle your toes in the soft warm sand.
A short stroll puts you right in the heart of Treasure Island Village. Here are the little delis, ice cream parlors and restaurants, the tiki bars on the beach, the one-of-a kind boutiques, and cafes, and of course the ubiquitous little seaside shops with their sponges, shells, and sunscreen lotion.
