About Allison Knapp

We live in the northeast but look forward to the warm weather after living up here in the cold our whole lives. We are both professionals- an executive banker and the other half enjoys a long time career with a major utility. I handle all my own bookings personally and wouldn't have it any other way.

Allison Knapp purchased this condo in 2010

Why Allison Knapp chose Isla del Sol

We wanted a home away from home!Isla del Sol is the best central location in the St. Pete Gulf area. We also love our location on Isla-the Bahia section is so well manicured and the landscape is unbeatable. Vista Verde West gives us it all and we looked at dozens of units on Isla--we have a much more spacious condo with two bedrooms that mirror two master suites-the master bath is huge like at home. The livingroom is wider and open, high ceilings-not narrow like many we saw. It's so private and quiet where we are-again unlike other Isla condos. But yet so close to the bay-yards away and so close to the drawbridge to the beach. Our balcony view is also gorgeous. We get the morning sun and the evening breeze-having trees near us and the 8th green right in front of us. And the pool-love it-with restrooms right there and it's never crowded. We feel our pool is also one of the best on Isla compared to most others. We find it so relaxing. As one of our guests put it ' we scoped around that whole area and nothing compared to Isla'. You have a landlord that cares about you and your comfort and that is why we are always constantly making improvements and sets our unit apart form many others.

What makes this condo unique

We have the best of both worlds here. You can go down the strip where the hotels are for dinner or beach, any day, all day if you want but go home to luxury not just a cramped hotel room that has nothing to offer but a much higher price per night and a crowded pool w/ no chairs! Our unit has every amenity you could ever ask for! And go right ahead--if you don't see something-tell us about it-we make changes a few times a year! We love going to the beach, jet-skiing, fishing, swimming, golfing, boating-love the location-on the gulf! You could never run out of fun things to do here or places within your reach! Yet, you can sit back on our balcony, lay on the couch, or sit at the pool or even take a walk on the premises and feel the peace and tranquility. Our unit in particular is updated and clean and we will keep it nice for a much desired condo for you, our guests and for us. It's larger than most on Isla-large bathrooms and showers-open concept with high ceilings-so close to St. Pete Beach-walk out the front door and walk across the parking lot to the bay etc. The balcony is so relaxing-we can sit there all night sometimes sipping our wine. The furniture is all new-cozy comfort. We chose top of the line mattressses and we've added all the extras. It's a great location on Isla. We love the peace and quiet! Longer term rents (monthly-mult. months) are welcome! Don't wait to book-this is already a highly requested unit! Location, location, location! We are at your service-let us know how we can make your stay the best! As a landlord, I always make myself available to my guests. You can count on that! Decorating is my personal hobby-it will always be a tasteful, an updated condo. We have many guests who come back year after year. Now that says it all!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I enjoyed two weeks at this lovely condo this March. It is spacious, freshly painted and newly furnished. The layout would be good for two couples as the bedrooms are at opposite ends with separate baths. The kitchen is well equipped and we appreciated the small touches, soft soap and hand lotion in the baths and plenty of cleaning products. The flat screen TV's and unlimited phone plan were added bonuses.

Located on Isla del Sol we found this mature setting with immaculate grounds, palms, ponds and scenic bay views perfect for daily walks. It also is close to beaches and St. Petersburg.

Our Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 4 weeks stay at your wonderful condo.

The condo ist very clean, beautiful furnished und well equiped. We like the tasteful decoration, the Wi-Fi-Connection and the 3 Flat-Screen-TV's. The kitchen has everythin you need.

The condo overlooks the golf course and the grounds of Isla del Sol. We enjoyed our daily morning walks around the wonderful Landscape of Isla del Sol.

The Fort de Soto Park with wonderful beaches is only a short drive away. This is our favorite Place.

Sunset at Pass-A-Grille Beach is a must!

We highly recommend this condo.

We are looking forward to rent the condo again in 2015.

Incredible Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for two weeks and enjoyed it thoroughly. The condo was much nicer than any we had previously stayed in- beautiful decoration and very clean as well! The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The location of the condo is central to everything- beaches, restaurants and shopping. It was everything we expected and more. All the amenities make it very enjoyable and the area is great and safe as well! I would definitely recommend this property to any vacationers visiting Isla. We will keep coming back hopefully for a longer stay. Thank you for an “Incredible” Vacation.

• We have usually spent 6 weeks from April until the end of May. We have been doing this for the last four years and already booked again for 2015. We have returned for many reasons, but the main reason is the beautiful condo that we feel privileged to stay in while we visit Florida. There is everything here that will make your stay very enjoyable. It has all the amenities of home, and all of which are of top quality. Each year when we return, there is always something else that has been done to upgrade the condo, this is a reflection of the owners and their genuine desire to make your stay even better than your last. This is what sets this condo apart from all the rest.

Repeat guests

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a delightful four winters in this great condo -- and look forward to returning for many years to come. It would also be something we might consider doing in the summer and fall when the Gulf water is warmer and the temps have stabilized. Allison has provided us with everything we could possibly need when on vacation. She is great to work with and very responsive if ever a problem arises. The condo is near the Gulf beaches and only a parking lot away from Boca Ciega Bay where you can sit and watch for dolphins as you take in one beautiful sunset after another. Most importantly the condo is well maintained, well decorated and clean. We'll be back again and again!

True to the Owner's words

  • 5 of 5

This condo is of exceptional value! The condo is bright and the layout is very accommodating for larger parties such as ours. We are a family of 5, all adults and we really enjoyed this lovely space and never felt crowded at any time.

This condo is exceptionally clean and is decorated like that in a magazine.

The kitchen is stashed with every appliance that one would desire to make one's stay more desirable. There is plenty of room to move around and the open concept kitchen/ dining is very inviting.

The rooms are large and there was lots of storage space to store our suitcases and personal effects.

The only downside to this condo would be the size of the water tank. It is a condo and storage space for a larger hot water tank is limited. We learned quickly to juggle our shower times. Once we figured this out we really enjoyed the luxurious bathroom spaces.

All amenities as listed in the description were nice to have at our disposal, especially free internet, cable and long distance. There were books, board games and movies to enjoy on a rainy day. What more could one ask.

We loved the location. It took 10 minutes to walk across the old bridge to the beach and then one could walk to their hearts desire on lovely St. Pete's Beach. The grounds itself are well kept and are quite large. One could walk there as well for a lovely morning or evening stroll.

This condo is very close to the pool and hot tub which our family did enjoy. The pool is heated and is very quiet. There are lots of chairs to lounge in or simply stair at the inland waterways. The location even provides access to a beach if the walk to the main beach proved to be too long.

It is quite near the main strip on Gulf Boulevard where access to stores and restaurants is plenty.

The view from the balcony is gorgeous and will not disappoint.

We are only hoping that this condo will be available when we plan our next vacation.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a tranquil setting, opportunities for leisurely walks and relaxation, but close enough to St. Pete that it would not be a burden to go back and forth. Allison's unit exceeded all expectations.

The condo is beautifully furnished, as the pictures accurately demonstrate. We enjoyed walks around the property almost daily The immaculately landscaped grounds and water features made it a pleasure to do so (got a few jogs in as well). When I did go to downtown St. Petersburg, it was only a 15-20 minute drive.

Allison is one of the most helpful and congenial property owners with whom I have ever had the privilege of dealing. She was prompt to answer all my questions, and did so graciously (she even went to the trouble to intervene with the internet service provider in my behalf one evening when I was having difficulty connecting to the wifi--the provider's technician called me back and resolved the issue that same evening).

I would not hesitate to rent this unit again, and wholeheartedly recommend it to others.
