Overview

St Pete Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 BR, 2BR, sleeps 6+, full kitchen + washer/dryer in unit

YOUR PARADISE: Welcome to the newest luxury resort on St. Pete Beach! You’ll appreciate this very clean, family-friendly, well appointed condo with the easiest beach access you can find. Located directly on the white sand, there’s an amazing southwest view overlooking the pool. From the balcony, you can wake up with a cup of coffee in peace as you watch the sunrise, or throughout the day, keep an eye on the kids at the pool while reading a book or just taking a break from the sun. End the day watching the sun set in all its glory.

SPACIOUS & CLEAN: The fully-equipped kitchen is spacious and has granite counter tops, as do the two full baths. The main living area has clean beige tile and the master bedroom has a textured designer carpet. The dining area is situated between the living and kitchen areas and seats 6 people comfortably. With all the conveniences of home, you may never want to leave. We have 2 full bedrooms with brand new furniture and TV's. The kitchen area has a brand new table and chairs that seat 6. The living area is nicely appointed again with brand new designer living set. For your best possible vacation experience, the condo is independently managed to ensure excellent customer service and exceptional cleaning. Additional information will be e-mailed on request. The unit and the building are both smoke-free, and pets are not permitted in the building or on the property.

BARRIER FREE & ON THE BEACH: This stunning unit is on the second floor with easy access to both stairs and the elevator. The access to the beach is quick: You’ll just spend seconds going back and forth from the condo to the beach vs. 15-20 minutes that it takes in high-rises. This is especially important and convenient for families with children.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: The resort is located right on gorgeous St. Pete Beach, and our condo is a short walk to the famous Don Cesar Hotel & Resort. There are beach bars nearby, upscale restaurants or casual, depending on your mood and budget. There’s shopping on Gulf Blvd or travel inland to malls and the many shopping areas that St. Pete’s/ Tampa Bay offers. Grocery stores are plentiful and close enough to walk if you choose. Walt Disney World is a 2 hour drive while Busch Gardens is nearby. Playgrounds for kids are just minutes away as is golf for those who enjoy to play.

NEW & UPDATED: As of December 2013, everything in the unit has been updated in the last 6 months. It has a brand new living area, dining room set and bedroom sets. There are 3 different 40-inch+ TV’s for rainy days to divide and conquer when the kids need something to do. There’s something for everyone in the family: the beach, warm Florida sunshine, the pool, quiet times on the balcony, limitless entertainment in a beautiful setting both inside and out.

WE TRULY LOVE IT HERE AND KNOW THAT YOU WILL TOO.

About David

We have four young children 9, 8, 3 and 1 and live in Michigan. This is our home away from home when it is dark and gray in Michigan.

David purchased this condo in 2013

Why David chose St Pete Beach

After years of renting we decided to buy our own family condo. After staying at Vistas on the Gulf we fell in love and knew it would be the perfect spot for our family to vacation year after year. We hope you enjoy your time in 207 as much as we do.

What makes this condo unique

The simplicity, serenity and proximity of Vistas on the Gulf really works well for our family. We have stayed in many places on vacation, when we stayed here for the first time 3 years ago, there was no doubt it was the place for us. The ease of getting back and forth from the beach with small children can't be beat.

Guestbook comments from the owner

David,



Our life is so crazy busy and topsy turvey. So nuts that this is actually the first minute I have had to send you a thank you note for letting us stay at your St. Pete condo in August. The first day was a bit dramatic with rental car issues and then there was a gas leak on the main road right outside the building that prohibited us from checking in before 5pm due to the road being closed for over an hour, so we had to use the lock box. No worries though we just went down the street and had a great seafood meal. The condo was perfect for our needs. It was spotless when we arrived. Upon arrival there was a torn shower curtain and the blind to the balcony was broken that we told the management staff of so they could take care of it for you. None of these issues were a problem for us though. We were really very comfortable in the unit. I have to say that the beach cart though was the selling point to our wanting to return to this same unit. That little baby was the best thing ever. We bought another umbrella because the one there kept turning inside out with the wind (we left them both with the cart in the closet). But having the chairs, umbrella, sand toys and that cart was just such a wonderful experience. The condo is in just the right spot on the beach as well. There were schools of manta ray swimming around us and even got to be within a foot of manatee swimming with us as well. My kids loved it. We have been to St. Pete a few times before and new we loved it there but now my kids got to experience why my husband and I love it. They cannot wait to come back. So hats of to you for having a beautiful condo with all the right tools to enjoy a relaxing time at the beach!!



Thanks so much,

Jennifer Z.

September stay with toddler

  • 5 of 5
I visited St. Pete Beach in September 2014 with my mother and my 19 month old toddler. I was really lucky to find this condo on VRBO. David, the owner responded to my inquiry immediately and was very helpful in getting the condo booked. He even let us use the pack n' play which was super convenient for my toddler. I arrived after the hours of the designated check in time but the management company had a locked box with our keys and paperwork. The manager had called me and left a detailed message on how to check in. I had good interactions with them for the duration of my stay.

The condo was very clean and well furnished. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, silverware, coffee maker, toaster, etc. They gave us ground coffee for each day and also had detergent for the dish washer. It was super convenient to buy groceries and have convenient food and save money by eating a couple of meals at the condo. There was a washer and dryer but I did not need to use these. The living room and both bedrooms were comfortable and the TVs were great since we did have one rainy day during our stay. It was great to have two full bathrooms as well. The balcony was also generously sized and had nice furniture for lounging.

The location was fabulous - there is a pool on the grounds and you can walk in 1 minute to a beautiful stretch of St. Pete Beach. We had such a great time walking on the beach during our first evening and during the day in mid-September it was warm enough for my toddler to swim and splash around in the waves. The location also offers amenities such as a Publix grocery store and Walgreens nearby. There were fast food and restaurant options very close as well. We ended up making the drive to the Lowry Zoo in tampa, to Fort de Soto Park and also to the local mall (on the rainy day).

We had a very enjoyable stay and found this to be a great value and much more convenient than renting a hotel room.

Owner's Response: Jenna:

Thank you for taking the time to give us an update and allowing us to host you and your family. I'm glad everything worked out well - as you have found we are best suited to handle a family (as we have four children and have setup the condo for our ease of use).

I'm glad you pointed out the pack 'n play. I forget what a pain those are to travel with. Future travelers note that we have one in the owner's closet. If you need it, please let me know - I will arrange to have it out for your stay.

Thanks again - we would be glad to host you again if your travels bring you to St. Pete.

Great unit and excellent owner! Amazing stay would highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5
The owner, David, made our stay perfect. He was responsive and easy to communicate with. He made sure everything was available for our stay. The unit has on site management which helps if anything needs to be addressed. We had no issue with our unit. It was plenty of space for our group of 6 girls. The condo is in a great location with easy access to public transportation. The owner takes pride in keeping his unit up to date which you can tell by the flat screen TVs and other furnishing selections. The beds were extremely comfortable! We would definitely return for another stay and highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Elizabeth:

Thank you so much for taking time to give me feedback and glad our place was the right fit for your crew. I really appreciate you giving me tips on the couple of items that needed to be tuned up . . . it is important for me to know what is not tip top so I can fix right away to make sure your stay and the future stay of guests are wonderful.

For future guests, please don't hesitate to let me know if anything at all is not 100% - even if you feel like they are too small to mention. . . the feedback is important and you have my commitment to do my best to make sure we get it squared up right away. Also, as we live 1000 miles away it is the only way I can get the candid feedback to keep this in the shape we want it in for our use.

Thanks again Elizabeth!

Beautiful stay on our favorite beach...

  • 5 of 5
We greatly enjoyed our stay at Vista’s on the Gulf. There were 5 adults and I never felt like we didn’t have enough space. The property and the unit top notch…they are both very well maintained and clean. Previously we have stayed north of this property and south and this was just the perfect location for us. The owner was excellent to work with as well as the staff in the office. The heated pool and hot tub area are super clean and are perfectly located just a short walk from the condo. The fully equipped kitchen was a real perk as we were able to prepare coffee for our morning walk on the beach and a nice breakfast and then some sandwiches and snacks to take to the beach or pool with us for the day. There are some beach towels and chairs in the condo and we rented a couple more lounge chairs and an umbrella from a vendor just a few steps away. The location is great. Just a short walk to anything you could possibly need…groceries, restaurant, etc. It worked out great for us.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know that everything worked well. If I've got it right you stayed back in January or February before we bought new beach equipment to stay in the condo for guests. It's a great point that there are vendors on the beach for rental as well.

Thanks again,

Excellent Choice for This Family!

  • 5 of 5
We were joining family on St. Pete Beach for a mini-family reunion & because of the size of our personal family, we would've been forced to get 2 hotel rooms. We really wanted to be together, so renting a condo was the best fit for us. Found this online & it was perfect! Comfortable sleeping for 6, plus the amenities of home and we could all be together! Nice pool and beach just steps away. Shopping & restaurants very close by. Unit was clean & nicely appointed. We would definitely stay here again when visiting SPB.

We really enjoyed our stay in your condo. We love the location right on the beach. Easy walk to the grocery store, restaurants & beach bars. Property was very well maintained and condo had everything we needed. The on-site management was very friendly and helpful. We look forward to returning again soon!

Thank you kindly for taking the time to give us some feedback. You are right to say for those looking for a more spirited vacation that the beach bars are all within walking distance. We recommend The Undertow for a nightcap as it is about 100 paces away.

We look forward to your next stay!

Perfect beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5
My family (me, my husband and two sons, 4 & 2) stayed at the Vistas on the Gulf May 14 for 3 nights. We arrived after 3 days of Disney and we were ready to relax! The condo was perfect! It was impeccably clean & cared for. It had ALL the amenities of home as well. My boys loved the bunk beds in the 2nd bedroom. I appreciated having 2 bathrooms and the washer & dryer. The unit is on the 2nd floor so it is VERY easy to go back & forth from the beach/pool/car etc. The beach was JUST BEAUTIFUL. My boys loved jumping waves and collecting shells. In the condo was a beach cart , umbrella and beach blanket; along with sand toys for the kids. Seriously, this place had everything! The condo's pool & hot tub were great too. There are so many restaurants within walking distance. We ate at Madfish, Crabby Bill's & Sea Critters. All were delicious and family friendly. The Publix grocery store is about 2 blocks away too, so that made for an easy trip to get some snacks. We also had the BEST ice cream ever at Larry's Ice Cream. Try the Taste of the Keys!! So good! We had a wonderful, relaxing time on St Pete's Beach and I cannot wait to come back. My only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer! :)

Owner's Response: Hi Sarah:
Thank you for the thorough feedback. It's helpful to know that we've hit the mark with all the extras we've built into the unit. I also appreciate you calling out the relative ease of location to Disney - we often mix a day or two into our trips as well. Important for future potential travelers to note that Orlando can be a more economical / convenient airport to get to and from some cities.

Thanks again for the note and staying with us.

Car: not necessary

Whether you want to relax by the private pool or on the white sandy beach, you can find a nice peaceful spot to sit and relax. After enjoying the peaceful gulf waters, watching the wildlife (including dolphins), listening to the ocean, and feeling the sunshine, you are a few steps back to the condo. It's easy to walk the beach to a nice restaurant or enjoy a meal that you can prepare yourself in our fully equipped kitchen.

Walking the beach to the south is the beautiful and historical 'Don Cesar Hotel', where you can enjoy a nice lunch, dinner, or ice cream. On the way you will pass an outdoor, beach bar/restaurant with volleyball, live music and great casual food. Just to the north are other fantastic beach-side tiki bars and restaurants which are in walking distance.

As for activities, there is a place to rent beach water bikes, kayaks, jet skis, sail boats, etc... about a half mile north of the condo. There are also fishing, snorkeling, dolphin-watching, sunset sailing boat trips and more at a marina less than a mile away from the condo.

If you need a break from the beach, Busch Gardens Amusement Park, great museums, and excellent shopping are all nearby and 'Disney World' is just a 2 hour drive.

The condo is centrally located on St. Pete Beach and within walking distance of a shopping center and many excellent restaurants so you can park the car for the week and forget using it unless you want to do some exploring of this great area. There also is a beach trolley for transportation.

You can check availability on the calendar located after the last series of photos. The calendar refers strictly to this condo and not availability in the building. The description of my condo and contents refers to condo 207 and not to other condos in the building.
