We just returned from a fabulous week staying in Seaview 502. Everything about this rental experience, from our initial contact with Carla (the owner), right through to our arrival, was wonderfully uncomplicated which resulted in a very relaxing and stress-free stay for our entire family.
When we arrived, the condo had been expertly cleaned by the onsite cleaning crew and was spotless. Onsite management provided keys, pool wrist bands and codes for the two key pads (one to access the beach and one to access the building after office hours) and were always available if we had any questions about the condo or the local attractions.
The condo itself is 100% as shown in the pictures although I would probably go as far as saying that the pictures don't fully illustrate the amount of space. Having 2 full bathrooms was great and between the large living room and the balcony, there is ample space for everyone to relax after a hard day on the beach. The beds were very comfortable and the two fully retractable patio doors made unobstructed views of the ocean possible from both the living room and the master bedroom. The kitchen was very well appointed with just about every cooking utensil, bowl or piece of glassware you could possibly need.
We stocked up with food at the Target in St. Petersburg (10 minutes drive away) but there was also a walmart closeby and they are building a Publix grocery store just the other side of Tom Stewart Causeway. There are also two 7-11's within 3 or 4 blocks of the condo itself.
The beach is literally a stones throw from the condo and it great. There is plenty of room for everyone with beach service if you want it. The ocean can get pretty choppy if the wind picks up but when the wind drops, it's great for swimming and there is a sand bar less than 50 yards off the beach.
The pool area was kept very clean and was not an annoyance when in the condo itself.
John's pass is 5 minutes drive down Gulf Blvd and has plenty of options for dining out, renting wave runners, paddle boards etc.. plus plenty of souvenir stores. Our only recommendation for eaing out (because we only ate out once !!) was Conch Replublic in reddington beach. Great food and great atmosphere.
I would not hesitate to recommend this condo to anyone looking for a troublefree beach getaway. I'm sure we'll be back in the future !!
Thankyou Carla for a great week by the ocean !!
