Whispers is Perfect Will Never Stay in a BB Hotel

  • 5 of 5

We decided not to stay in one of the big beach resorts this year and are we glad we did!

On line this property looked a bit small and old compared to what we were used to and we were late in booking this year.

But it is in a great location and it has great reviews so we decided to take a chance.

The web site says that Whispers is truly a flash back in time to a simple more nostalgic time of family vacations in Florida.

It is a blast from the Florida of the 1950's yet with all the mod cons - you cant help but feel completely at home here.

This is the Florida of my youth and I so enjoyed being reminded of it and sharing it with my kids.

If you are looking for the modern chrome and glass resort experience, this is not it. But it is clean and the place is updated with modern A/Cs, TVs, WiFi - yet still the charm of a bygone era is unmistakeable!

It reminded me of my trips to Florida when I was a kid.

There is a full kitchen in each unit and full size refrigerators meant that the kids always had sodas and ice cream on hand (loads of fresh fruit too).

We loved the crystal clear pool and the property is well maintained. A very personable young man, a veteran, seemed to always be around and was ready to assist at the drop of a hat. We eventually got to know Dan, and he gave us lots of tips about what to see and where to go.

Definitely a great place for the baby boomers to bring their gen-ex children.

Whispers has captured our hearts and it will be our future spot in Florida!

Rate it an A for value, nostalgia and sheer fun to stay at.

Owner's Response: Hi Craig, It is a pleasure to have your family stay with us and thank you so much for your positive review. Dan is my veteran right hand man and ex special forces, paratrooper and all the rest of it, and he is a gem of a man. He has a great attitude and despite his war injuries he does not shrink from any responsibility. We have formed a good friendship over the years. My son was also special forces in the Israeli army, and trained US forces and Israeli forces in Israel. We have to acknowledge them all. Best wishes to you Jeffrey and Sharda

Great Value - Great Vacation.

  • 5 of 5

The owners list Whispers as a Florida Heritage Property and it sure is a great flashback to a simpler time of childhood dreams.

This "Olde Time" Florida waterfront setting is a great place to drop out of sight for a few days and to let the world pass you by.

There is a large dock with great fishing and a cleaning table if you decide to keep your catch.

You may be tempted to give it away to the pelicans that stand shoulder to knee with you looking with sad eyes with each catch.

The condos have well appointed kitchens with a full cooking stove and refrigerator.

The shops and restaurants are a block as is the large Publix super market that is just a block away.

If you are willing to cook your own meals, we figured that we saved at least $150.00 a day, each day that we ate at home. Doing the math, we could have paid for the weeks accommodations that way!

There are tables outside each condo in back, a BBQ grill by the pool facing the water - nice touch - and lawn furniture is included.

 The Gulf beaches across the street, about a five minutes walk.

Great Value and bang for the buck!

Owner's Response: Hi Lesley and Doug, You are smart. Saving on home cooking in our full kitchen condos is the way to go, and I agree, the savings can pay for the vacation : ) Living in the heart of Treasure Island - right on the water has its attractions, not least of which is the local bird life that love to visit a friendly fisherman on our dock for whatever pickings may be had. If you are kind, you will have a whole lot more new friends by the time you leave. It is so great to have you stay with us and we look forward to your return. Best wishes Jeffrey and Sharda

This condo made my vacation truly restful

  • 5 of 5

I had read about this condo before planning to stay here for a vacation, and it is really no wonder that it had been nominated twice for the "White Glove Award" for excellence. We stayed in the 2-bedroom condominium – which was called as the Florida Suite. The spacious area along with the amenities and facilities made me feel like I was in my own home away from home. Every morning, we enjoyed our cuppa on our private patio. In the morning, my family used to enjoy fishing from the dock. On some days, I just lazed at the poolside to enjoy the wide bay and anticipated if I get lucky to spot some dolphins!

Comfort has a new definition

  • 5 of 5

When I relaxed in the luxurious feather beds in this condo. The comfort was entirely at another level with the triple sheeted bedding. I just cannot forget the feeling of relaxing on these super-comfy beds. My wife liked the facilities of full kitchen with all mod cons and full size appliances and dinnerware & cookware, iron along with ironing board, hairdryer, on site laundry, tub and shower. Being a cleanliness freak, the tiled floor made cleanup after the kids a pleasure and was reassuring as well - as you never know how clean carpets are. So the fully tiled rooms are a big plus from a hygiene point of view.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much. It is curious that you mentioned the tile floors. The most dirty thing in the world is carpet. I hate any room - especially in a condo or hotel, that has carpets. So all our floors are tiled. We are very conscious about house keeping and cleanliness. I am delighted that you all had a great time and we hope to welcome you back! Best wishes Jeffrey and Sharda

This place is outrageously cute!

  • 5 of 5

This place is outrageously cute! , Lots of TLC has gone into the concept and rooms.

We love being on the bay.

The kids get hot and exhausted very quickly out on the beach.

We go to the beach for an hour or two and then we head back to the pool all day, and fish from the dock while the kids paly.

It is clean and the owner was always very friendly.

We have three small kids so being a small property the kids can just head back to the room for a snack or drink or for a potty break - no problem.

The room was charming and having a full kitchen and a fridge etc saved us a load of money when you figure the cost of 3 meals a day for 5 people - it really adds up!

There is free parking, free wi fi and is VERY quiet and relaxing.

This is an older resort which I love, it has character and and loads of charm.

Shops, restaurants and the Publix market are all close by.,which is a big plus.

Looking forward to making Whispers our home away from home.

Affordable Beach Condo 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. Large beds are triple sheeted and have luxury non allergenic feather beds for a unique sleep comfort experience. 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. 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. Lie in the shade of the largest rubber tree on the island. Relax with a book, catch the perfect tan and watch the pelicans and egrets and hundreds of types of birds or the dolphins in the bay. 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.

Amenities

From the Owner

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!
