Isla del Sol Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

RESERVED: January 1st THROUGH 1st May 2015.

This is a modern, well furnished, and well equipped condo with a beautiful view across the bay to the South, towards the neighboring island of Tierra Verde and Pass-A-Grille. It is ideally located for easy and quick travel throughout central Florida as it is only a few minutes from the interstate network and St Pete Beach.

As you enjoy a meal on the patio dolphins can frequently be seen swimming a couple of hundred yards off shore, and sometimes even closer!

With free Wi-Fi for your emails and no charge for telephone calls within continental USA the condo boasts a 42 inch flat screen TV in living room and also a TV in each bedroom. (cable)

The condo also has quality kitchen appliances, and furniture. Linens and towels are replaced regularly. The kitchen is fully equipped right down to last detail, with quality cookware, crockery, and silverware. The condo enjoys luxurious fully tiled upgrades to bathrooms. The master bedroom has a 'wet room' style shower en-suite of Italian tile and granite, the second bathroom is tile and marble with a garden tub and shower above. For your added comfort and convenience the living room, kitchen and patio were recently updated with quality floor tiles, and new quality carpet laid to both bedrooms April 2012. Each of the two bedrooms has a queen bed, and in the living room a pull out sofa which has a quality double mattress. Because we use the condo for our vacations, and we are “fussy”, it is continually well maintained, our “Home from Home”.

This ground level villa type condominium is located on the beautiful tropical island of Isla Del Sol (Island of the Sun); it boasts an 18-hole golf course which meanders through the island. The condominium has breath-taking uninterrupted views of the salt-water Boca Ciega Bay on the Gulf of Mexico, which surround the island. The water's edge is a mere 100 feet from the patio!

The Island (linked by bridges) is ideally located only 30 minutes easy drive from Tampa Airport to the east, and is less than one mile from St. Pete Beach; Sarasota lies 30 minutes to the south. Disney World is within an easy 90 minute drive north-east on interstates.

The complex has its own exercise room, a large pool on the picturesque water’s edge, heated Jacuzzi and a fishing pier. There are multiple guest parking spaces in addition to one exclusive covered garage space.

Conveniently located close to Fort DeSoto Park-North Beach voted Number One 'Top 10 Best Beaches' in the USA in 2005, and only a few miles from Caladisi Island, voted Number One beach in 2008!

The resort has 24 hour security patrols and so crime in the area is virtually unheard of.

This tropical condominium complex is one of the most sought after for vacation rentals in the 'Isla Del Sol' community, and it's easy to see why! You might find lower rates on Isla, but not with a view like this one, or which has had $$$$ lavished on it since purchase.

Walk just a few steps to the magnificent waterfront pool, which is beautifully furnished, and is complete with hot tub.

Perhaps the best memories you will take away will be those of the time you relaxed on the patio where you can view a variety of sea birds and frequently spot the dolphins as they search for breakfast or lunch! Enjoy the stunning Florida sunsets from the beautiful and meticulously maintained tropical grounds.

Owned by Janet and David Hilton who are based in England.

David Hilton purchased this condo in 2007

We visited St Pete for the first time in 2003 from our home in England. We simply fell in love with the area and purchased our first condo, which had a golf course view. We learned our current condo with such a terrific bay view was for sale and so we 'traded up'. We have no regrets! In addition to the view we have great neighbors, superb weather and lots to enjoy throughout the region.

Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of the condo's location is the tranquility. The uninterrupted view of the bay and the peaceful nature of the location create an atmosphere of relaxation, a haven away from life's pressures.

With the beautiful white sand of Fort Desoto Beach only minutes away one can enjoy a relaxing stroll at any time of the day. But perhaps the most beautiful time to visit is at sunset. The sunsets are amongst the most awesome one can experience.

PIECE OF PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We were delighted with the condo and all the amenities it offered. The view off the patio was incredible. The owners were very easy to work with before, during, and after our stay. This was our first extended stay in Florida and found the condo to feel very much like home. We definitely would recommend this as a vacation destination for those over 55. We are looking forward to our return to the condo next year.

OUR SECOND TIME THERE

  • 5 of 5
Yet again we had a really nice time at Isla del Sol and loved being back in the condo. It was just as we remembered it from last year. The condo is lovely and the views from the condo and by the pool are amazing. We saw dolphins many times when we looked over to the bay. The condo was very clean and well maintained as always. You cannot go wrong if you stay here. It is very close to everything you need with a choice of shops, restaurants and a variety of beaches. Fort De Soto is our favourite beach. We look forward to booking up again with you soon!!

PEACEFUL VACATION CONDO

  • 4 of 5
We chose this condo, for our vacation, because it was a ground floor unit with underground parking and for the beautiful views from the patio. We took advantage of the exercise/recreation room, which was well equipped, and the lovely pool area overlooking the bay.The condo is beautifully decorated, as the photos accurately reflect, and is clean and well maintained. The grounds at Isla Del Sol are immaculate and walking around the area is a pleasure. (It's only a 20 minute walk to Gulf Blvd.) David and Janet were a pleasure to deal with and provided us with a wealth of information. Our family would recommend Genero's Italtian Restaurant in Passe-Grille, Steam Restaurant and Coffee Shop on Gulf Blvd. and Spinners in the Grand Plaza (fantastic view). Isla is a great area for a quiet, relaxing vacation.

SERENE AND PRIVATE CONDO.

  • 5 of 5
I highly recommend this condo! It is exactly as described... very clean, well equiped, great linens, baths, and comfortable beds. It is a short drive to beaches (or nice walk), Publix grocery and many restaurants. We have rented many condos on the Gulf coast from Clearwater to Ft. Myers beach and this was definitely one of my favorites. It especially was wonderful in January as the lanai had sun from morning til sunset. Dolphin sightings were abundant as well as many egrets. The bay was very tranquil and provided wonderful sunset views. We also appreciated the privacy on the bay that we have never experienced on the beach. Keyless entry was so convenient as well as a covered garage...very close to the unit. Pool area is lovely as well and walking in the Isle Del Sol area is spectacular. The palms look so regal and line the streets throughout the area. Definitely a perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying all that Florida has to offer! I might also add that the owners are so helpful in guiding you through the area if you are not familiar and very concerned for your comfort. You will not be disappointed!
