About Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez

Two sons and a daughter complete our family of five. Charlotte and I have vacationed in Hawaii, Turks & Caicos, Bahamas, South America - etc. and all great wonderful vacation locations. But we always relax and spend time on the Gulf Beaches of Florida. The location is always ideal for weather, activities, friends and family. Great location and easy to get to and so much to do. Pro sports teams in Tampa, Busch Gardens, Gulf beauty and of course we would always go to Orlando and enjoy everything Orlando has to offer - from Disney, to Sea World to the Orlando Magic. This is simply a great location and this condo is beachfront - top floor - 40 minutes from Tampa airport - 30 minutes from Clearwater airport - and located in Treasure Island on the world famous St. Pete beaches . . . what more can you say. There is so much to do - deep see fishing, charters, John's Pass - etc. Getting here is easy for Western Hemisphere and European vacationers and you can start your vacation right away. We have enjoyed this area immensely.

Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez purchased this condo in 2010

Why Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez chose Treasure Island

We have vacationed in the Central Gulf area for over 25 years. Our first stay at Sunset Vistas was in 2007 - and we thought it was gorgeous. Activities for young and old and our second son and third child greatly enjoyed the Kiddy pool. The two older ones spent all day in the larger pool and then at sunset on the gorgeous beach. The beach is truly world class - just Google Map it and see from above then walk it when you are there. Activities in the area are endless. Charlotte enjoyed the restaurants and shopping nearby. Great location to fly to - great location to drive to - and great location to center your vacation from and/or enjoy all that is literally within walking distance of Sunset Vistas!

What makes this condo unique

There is a lot. Sweeping views - see it on Google - from this top floor condo, sunset walks while watching seagulls coast by, hot tub, pool, grills - bike rides on the beach. Middle Grounds Grill is a 5 minute walk away - Rickey T's another 2 minutes and more great places to eat. Also, and for one price ALL DAY, the Sun Coast Trolley will take you from St. Pete Beach to Sand Key (Clearwater) with unlimited stops - all for one price! Again, you don't need a car - other family members can arrive earlier/later when you give them your security code AND if you do have a car (or are on business) the significant others can still get around - if they are not at the beach or the pool all day long. Again, there is a shuttle to/from the airport (less than $30 last checked) and great trolley on the beach. Ferry, Boat and Charter Related activities abound out of John's Pass which is a hub for such items. Including Deep Sea Fishing Charters - Parasailing - Sailing Charters - Speed Boat Tours - Honeymoon Ferry Service - Dimares Yachts - Tampa Bay Boat Charters - Capt George Roux - Jet Skis - and more Golf, Golf Course and Adventure Golf Related from Smuggler's Cove Adventure Golf to Treasure Bay Golf and Tennis. Pro Sports Teams in the Area Tampa Bay Buccaneers » American Football --- Tampa Bay Devil Rays » Baseball --- Tampa Bay Lightning » Ice Hockey --- Orlando Magic » Basketball ---

March Vacation in Treasure Island

  • 4 of 5

We had another wonderful vacation at Sunset Vistas. This time we stayed at Rick's condo and enjoyed our experience. Rick made it very easy to deal with the details of booking a two week stay at his condo. The condo was well furnished and met all the details described in the original write-up. Rick provided us with beach chairs and beach umbrella which made it very convenient to stay at the beach. Sunset Vistas' proximity to St. John's Pass makes this location ideal for all. Shops and restaurants are within walking or driving distances.

We would recommend Rick's condo and Sunset Vistas in general to anyone wanting to escape from the winters in the North.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

The condo was very well suited for our group of four adults. Everything was top notch at the residence, great view with very nice accommodations. The only negative that I could find would be that the second bedroom was a little small,but not a major issue. The location was perfect to travel to the other islands, St. Pete, Clearwater, or Tampa, or just go the beach. I would return in a heartbeat, and the Gonzolazes were very helpful and professional.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation.. This property is on the beach but only a few minutes drive into down town St. Pete. The area is quiet and the apartment is in perfect condition.

Attentive owner, good location.

  • 4 of 5

Very nice. Some suggestions (only 1 criticism). Wine on arrival very nice but there was no corkscrew to open it. Kitchen and utensils some of the best we've had. Top notch furniture and decorating. Calling it a penthouse was a stretch-it was a very nice top floor condo among 20 or so other units. View and location was just ok, had to sorta peek around a corner to see full ocean view. Unit next door's window looked right at our deck. The bedding and especially the pillows needed replacing, the pillows were awful. Perhaps putting a small shelf in the 2nd shower would have been nice-trying to pick shampoo,etc. up off the floor was frustrating. All in all, an attentive owner presenting a nice unit in a great location made for a very pleasant week.

Owner's Response: Thanks for providing the feedback and will address the corkscrew. Hope you had the chance to enjoy the wine. Pillows can be a very personal item - soft/firm/feather/foam etc. We focus on making sure they are clean and ready for our guests. First mention and will check - and also wanted to note that the master bedroom bedding is new from end of 2014 . . . and we are placing the new bedding pictures on the website within a couple of weeks. I am assuming you are referring to the 2nd bedroom and can check that too. As you noted the living room couch and recliner are new. Maybe you had the chance to recline and see the gulf view from the top floor. We are Gulf View and there is no need to peek around the corner. The actual views are on our listing and those are pictures from our top floor "Gulf View" condo and the subtitle shows the location the picture was taken from - e.g. master bedroom balcony toward expansive Gulf Beaches. There are units that are "Gulf Front" - and in those units you can also see the deck next door. You kind of have to go out of your way to do that and this is a 155 unit complex and each condo has a deck next door - but it is good that you mention in the event that future guests have high sensitivity to looking to/from decks - again you are on the top floor so you will be doing most of the looking. Will have to address the shelf in the second shower. We do provide startup supplies so that you don't have to run out and shop right away ==> tissue boxes, toilet paper, a few Tide "pods", "finish" dishwasher detergent, anti-bacterial soap dispenser, courtesy soaps in each bathroom, arabica coffee (2- eight cup pouches - coffee filters) and creamer/sweeteners . . . and again meant as startup supplies. You should have noticed a number of beach towels and beach chairs in the hallway closet for your convenience. The Pak N Play and high chair are there when needed. The digital access code is something that we hope was a convenience for you also. Once you park in our reserved spot - next to the cafe and the courtyard - a few steps to the elevators, top floor and digital code into our condo and guests generally like that as they don't have to wrestle with keys or a long walk. Our WIFI is the fastest in the complex and sometimes taken for granted. Thank you for being our guest, the review and will address the items you mentioned. Best to you and family and look forward to seeing you in the future. Sincerely, Rick and Charlotte

Owner's Response: Dear Katie, Datie and MJ: First of all - thank you for the feedback. The family reunion from the west coast was interesting as I had a chance to speak with and confirm transactions with each one of you. We particularly value the input and rating because you run a Bed and Breakfast in San Diego! Needless to say will recommend to anybody I know and will try to stop by next time we are in San Diego. Take care and looking forward to your next visit - and Datie - and MJ. Sincerely, Rick and Charlotte

St. Pete's / Gorgeous Beaches of Treasure Island
Car: not necessary

Treasure Island is blessed with over 3 miles of white sandy Gulf Coast beaches. Yearlong activities include swimming, boating, fishing, golfing or just taking a long walk down the beach. We are part of the 13th largest metropolitan area in the United States and are only a 45 minute drive from Tampa International Airport, Busch Gardens and only a 2 hour drive from the Orlando area. Clearwater Airport is about 10 minutes closer than Tampa International but does not have volume of flights and carriers - but worth checking from your city.

Treasure Island got its name after several property owners buried and then 'discovered' a couple of wooden chests on the beach. After claiming the chests were filled with treasure news of the discovery quickly spread and the name was born - Treasure Island!

You know you will be in Treasure Island when you pass the famous Pirate's Welcome and Treasure Chest or cross one of the three bridges that bring you to a tropical world of lush flowers, palm trees, parrots, pelicans and dolphins. You can consider this your home away from home - and stretch your toes in the sand and wash your troubles away.
