The condo provided us with a wonderful retreat. The location is perfect for those who choose to explore Treasure Island by foot, which is a short few steps across the bridge; or, if one wishes to rent a car, there is a car port for the unit. The view of the bay is spectacular morning, noon, and night! And, the resident heron who wades in the pool adds to the "beachy" feel of the complex. Plus, the heated pool is fantastic after a day of walking, dining, and shopping. I was pleasantly surprised to find so many local bistros close by, many only a ten minute walk from the condo and offering an array of choices---all very affordable. The shopping at John's Pass, only about a half-hour walk from the condo, is also amazing! And, the white sandy beaches are only a short ten minute walk from the condo. The condo itself is clean, larger than expected, and very welcoming, that is, very comfortable and accessible. Its heating/cooling units are superb. To be honest, we spent the majority of our stay out and about on Treasure Island; but, with the condo so close, we could spend the morning shopping and the afternoon at the beach without having to wear our beachwear when we left the condo in the morning. The condo is in a prime location. Plus, the amenities available (the fully equipped kitchen, the bath towels, the bedding, etc.) made for a comfortable stay.
In all, the condo was accurately described, accurately photographed, and well-maintained. It was a pleasure dealing with the owner, and I would recommend the condo to anyone looking for a retreat. We enjoyed the shopping at John's Pass: Lori's Soap and Sponge Shop is a wonderful place for little gifts, as well as Pirate's Cove on Gulf Blvd., and The Landing Co. is a very fine jewelry store; the white sandy beaches straight west of the condo; and the many local eateries and pubs: Foxy's Cafe, Gigi's, the Clock Tower Bar and Grill, the Middle Grounds Bar and Grill, Sloppy Joe's, The Floridian, Ricky T's, Jimmy B's, the Toasted Monkey, Super Scoops, etc. And, last but definitely not least, we enjoyed a couples massage and a facial at the very accommodating Paradise Salon and Spa.
We had a fantastic retreat!
