This luxurious 2 bedroom/2 bath unit sleeps 4-5 and is located on the southern exposure of the Sandpearl Residences. Sandpearl is perfectly situated directly on the Gulf of Mexico beach and about 1/4 mile north of Pier 60. The beach behind Sandpearl is over 300 feet deep and you can walk over 4 miles one way on Clearwater beach to Caladesi Island State Park. Beautiful sunsets are an every day occurrence.
Both bedrooms, living room and kitchen offer exceptional views of the beach, Gulf of Mexico and pool deck. Because the ceiling height is 9’ 4”, all of the rooms feel more spacious. The living room consists of two full size couches, lounge chair, 40” high-definition TV and ceiling fan. The kitchen has granite countertops, beautiful wood cabinets, dishwasher, range and microwave over. The kitchen is well-stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glasses and utensils.
Eight can be seated at the dining room table and four bar stools at the kitchen counter allow for more casual dining. If the weather permits, which is almost all of the time, six could dine outside on the balcony.
Both bedrooms boast king sized beds and ceiling fans for additional comfort. The master has wood floors, two large closets, 32” TV, desk and blackout curtains. The master bath has a huge walk-in shower, dual sinks, granite countertops, marble floors, a private toilet area and linen closet.
Another nice feature of our home is the second bedroom can be used as a suite, because a pocket door allows the guests to use the second bath privately. This bedroom has a king bed and plush carpeting. The guest bath has a tub/shower, granite top and tile floors.
The balcony has seating for six and glass railing, which allows for unobstructed views from the condo.
You may access the internet by wireless connection throughout the unit. A separate laundry room off the kitchen contains a full size washer, dryer and laundry tub.
The Residences at Sandpearl condominium building has amazing amenities for its residents and guests. The enormous pool/garden deck overlooks the beach from the third story. The pool is heated and is long enough for lap swimming. An eight person heated, whirlpool spa is next to the pool. And unlike most hotels, you will NEVER have a problem finding a chair on the Sandpearl’s deck. Additionally, there are several covered cabanas for protection from the sun, three gas grills and outdoor showers for rinsing off.
Just of the pool deck is the club room, catering kitchen, billiard room and fitness center. The fitness center includes his and her saunas, steam rooms, six cardio machines all with their own TV’s, weight machines, exercise balls and free weights. You can almost always find a fresh cup of coffee in the kitchen.
The concierge staff is available 24/7 and is always friendly and helpful, answering any questions about the building or neighborhood.
There is so much to do without getting into your car, which is securely parked in the building’s garage. You can take a short walk down to Pier 60 and listen to live music. Walk up and down Mandalay Avenue to enjoy shopping or dining in numerous establishments, both casual and upscale. Several of our favorites include Tate Island Grill, Frenchy’s Rockaway, Bobby’s Bistro and JB’s Island Café (great breakfast). A CVS drug store is just across the street for almost anything you left behind.
For water activities, you have so much to choose from: jet skiing, kayaking, dolphin watching and pirate cruises, sunset sailing, charter boat fishing. All of these are less than 1/2 mile away. Otherwise, just enjoy a walk on the beach or rent a bicycle.
Due to condominium association rules, the minimum rental period is 30 days.
The four star Sandpearl Resort is just north of our condominium. Besides two great restaurants, you may enjoy full service spa for facials, pedicures, manicures and massages. Also, if you have more guests in town than beds, it’s a fantastic place to stay.
Farther away you can enjoy several top-notch golf courses (Innisbrook for example), world-class museums (Dali in St. Petersburg) and professional sporting events (Rays, Buccaneers and Lightning).
