"We loved Star of the Gulf!! Plenty of space and it was so nice to have many things provided for us! We also loved that is was so close to the beach and that the beach was private. We would take walks down the beach and see some places so crowded and be so thankful we were where we were! And it was a great price for all that we got! Thank you again!" D.W. Lexington, KY

About Miriam Buono

Star of the Gulf has been my family's beach house since I was a little girl. Our own children now enjoy this treasure. We are very happy to share it with other families.

Miriam Buono purchased this house in 2008

Why Miriam Buono chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

When my parents decided to retire, we just couldn't bear selling the house, so we bought it! Our children are so happy that we are now the owners of Star of the Gulf! We go as often as we can. It's the one place we can really get away from it all and relax.

What makes this house unique

We love our cozy little neighborhood, having the beach just a few steps away, and walking down to the corner diner for breakfast and lunch. The beach is a gem. White sand goes on and on for miles in each direction. We love having the beach to ourselves.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed your home immensely. My husband is in the Army and we were traveling home for my daughter’s dance competition. Your home gave us the ability to “be at home” and have family there with us. The home is spacious and the proximity to the beach is perfect- just a hop skip and a jump and you are there. Everything you need for a beach getaway is on site. This is a great home.

Fall Break 2016!

  • 4 of 5

Great location! Steps from the beach and the Long Pier. Very roomy for a large group, plenty of space so you are not tripping over each other. Good mid point between Clearwater and St. Pete's Beach. There are lots of toys and beach stuff so you do not need to worry about bringing that! We had a great week and the weather was awesome!

First time in Florida from South Carolina

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Florida and we couldn't have been more pleased. The 'Star of the Gulf' was perfect for our big family. The home is very roomy and comfortable. The beach is only a few steps away and is never crowded, which we loved. There's a lot of near by things to do (shopping, putt putt, aquarium). Lots of books and games in the condo as well. This condo is like a home away from home. We will be back for sure.

Our Family's Favorite Place

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Star of the Gulf with our very large family twice - and both times were our favorite vacations. My husband and I were born and raised in St. Pete, so being tourists now is rather strange. The Star of the Gulf makes visiting feel like home again.

Super short walk to the shore and Kenny's Corner for breakfast (yummo).

The owner is a dear and is always quick to respond to questions.

awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

Awesome house. Not far from the beach. Alot of things to do,aquariums are not far. If you have kids (any age) celebration station is a great place to go. The house was big enough for our family 2 adults and 6 kids and we still had room. Our neighbors were very friendly. Great communication with the owner. Will be returning next year.

Oh my! What a great time in Redington!

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievable time at the Star of The Gulf! The condo was exactly what was expected. We had more than enough room. This condo is perfect for families with young or teen aged children. The beach was a stones throw away and we were there everyday. I will recommend staying at the Star of The Gulf to all my family and friends.
