Spa and Retreat Facilities: Affordable Beach Condos offers a vacation beach experience with affordable, well appointed condominium rentals.

Heated Pool, Fishing, Beaches, Sun Shine!

Close to the sophisticated life style of St Petersburg and Tampa.

Area Attractions:

Treasure Island is very laid back. Think Ernest Hemingway's Old Florida with live blues bars, great sea food restaurants and informal island life.

Nothing represents the character of this bygone era better than Whispers Affordable Beach Condos and nearby Johns Pass Historic Village.

Johns Pass Village is just up the road. A shanty fishing wharf filled with eclectic seafood restaurants, small galleries and shops, and where the daily catch is still brought home each evening and cooked fresh for you right off the boat!

Close by are many fine restaurants, both fast food and fine dining. Fishing charters, boat and jet ski rentals, para sailing and the best white sand beaches in the USA!

St. Petersburg and Tampa have many fine cultural events, music, museums, sophisticated dining, galleries and amazing bars and pubs.

Dont miss the Saturday Art Walk. Every second week, free trolley tour of the art district with live demonstrations of pottery making, glass blowing, works in progress and art galleries.

Every month brings a host of different events.

There are world-class symphony concerts, theater, experimental theater, rock concerts, and fine museums including the world-renowned Salvador Dali Museum, the Holocaust Museum, as well as the finest Museum of Science in the Southeast.

We are the regional capital for craft beers, brew pubs, live entertainment and amazing night life.

The thrill rides of Busch Garden Theme Park and Adventure Land are a must and are just forty five minutes away.

Disney and Universal are 90 minutes away.

Do not miss the Seminole Indians Hard Rock Casino, Lowrey Park Zoo, Tampa Aquarium, Winter the Dolphin star of Dolphin Tales at Clearwater Aquarium, and of course the finest beaches in the USA!

Shopping and Dining:

Old historic downtown Tampa is Ybor City also known as Cigar City. This is the old Cuban cigar-making district that gave the world Tampa Cigars.

Today it is reminiscent of New Orleans' French Quarter with its Jazz clubs, Blues bars, rave clubs, taverns, bistros, and boutiques. Rock until you drop is the theme of Ybor City.

Shopping is another treat.

Three major malls are within 30 minutes plus a huge Factory Outlet Mall featuring major brand close outs. Discover little treasures in the small boutiques around Treasure Island Village.

We are waiting to welcome you to beautiful Treasure Island on the Florida Gulf Coast. Home of the finest beaches in the USA. Famous for 360 days of sunshine a year!

Spent wonderful holidays in Treasure Island

  • 5 of 5

Theme based decor gives a wonderful enchantment to this property, drawn from places around the world. The lush tropical waterfront gardens are rich in palm trees, tropical plants and mesmerizing fountains. Facilities that made us feel “at home away from home” were – the full kitchen, full bathroom with tub and shower, and separate bedrooms and living areas. Cleanliness was excellent and the condo was super-clean and it included all the appliances, linens as well as the bedding. Proper heating and air conditioning facilities made us feel comfy and cosy in this delightful condominium. Highly recommend it. We will be back.

I am surprised that we did not find it sooner.

  • 5 of 5

Some years ago my husband and I discovered Whispers, a lovely hidden "secret" on Treasure Island.

I am surprised that we did not find it sooner. I wish we had. We have been coming to Treasure Island for years.

We stayed for a month and the beds are comfortable with old fashioned feather beds.

My husband has allergies but the owners assured us that they are hypo allergenic - and indeed he had no problems with it.

The beach is nearby - just two blocks and is very clean, beautiful & not overly crowded.

There is a promenade walkway along beach just great for safe walking, half decent restaurants within walking distance & a new Publix grocery store has been erected which must be very convenient. There are also cozy little lounges {bars} with music in area lots of people walking dogs, skateboarding and just hanging out.

I like shopping and you can go to a different store or mall every night. Locally there are loads of quaint shops and down town St Petersburg - about 15 minutes drive - there are wonderful shops, galleries boutiques and restaurants.

With a full kitchen we save a ton on food and snacks and the rates are very reasonable compared to the big hotels.

I will never stay in one of them again.

We enjoy the fresh air and exercise in the winter months and the pool is heated and there are nearby tennis courts. A bike trail passes in front of the this property.

There is a 3 bedroom house on the property - it is very large and we hope to return with a few friends and share the cost of the house as it can sleep 8 people.

Owner's Response: Dear Judith, It was a pleasure to have you stay with us. It is always gratifying for us when you have such a good experience. We certainly look forward to your return and if indeed you decide to stay in the Executive house - prepared to be "wowed". I wish you a very happy and health 2015, All our best wishes Jeffrey and Sharda

I have been staying at this motel since 2000

  • 5 of 5

I have been staying at this motel since 2000 Everything you need is within walking distance.

The bay is nicer than the beach in my opinion. Great shade, lovely breezes and cozy corners of the garden to hide away with a good book or my IPad.

Sometimes come during the year for a quick getaway.

We always go for several weeks in Spring and we spend Easter there.

The weather is always fantastic!

Room Tip: All are great!

This is not a five star hotel but I would not stay anywhere else when visiting the Gulf beaches

  • 5 of 5

We always have a great stay, this is our third time.

We feel right at home.

Also easy on the old wallet. We feel like we we're staying at a guest room in someone's house rather than a resort. Whispers is small with just seven or eight units. Tiny copared with some of the Gulf beach hotels.

My husband and I were there for a weeks break and for unwinding from the stress of Pennsylvania.

We enjoy walking a couple blocks to great restaurants and bands in the neighborhood.

Mornings we like to walk with our dog on the promenade that runs the length of the beach.

The rooms were old but cute and vintage that made us feel worth it. Cleanliness is a big factor and we have always found the rooms to meet our expectations.

Coffee in the early morning in the courtyard is amazing. Lots of birds singing and butterflies.

It is what we expected.

Scam, disgustingly not stay here.

  • 1 of 5

I just returned from the Whispers Villas and it is awful. As soon as we arrived I knew we had been scammed and I called to get my money back. Jeffery, the owner said I could not have my money returned and stated he had not misrepresented the property because the web site called it "Old Florida Style". Well he got the old right it is old. Our room was falling apart as were the very worn, torn dirty bed linens, the non functioning toilet, the moldy window units. I do not think the bath mat in the bathroom has been washed in months and the cups in the kitchen had dried Dip spit in them. It is just gross!

Before you book this property or any other property owned or managed by Jeffery and his wife please research the reviews.

Owner's Response: Whispers is a completely rehabbed 1960s era Florida Resort. The condo had a brand new leather living room set plus a brand new bedroom set with new linens. The condo was painted in the last year and completely redone. The skirt of the bed did have a rip where the skirt had been run over by the wheel (snagged on the frame) and there was a small hole. Too bad because it ruined an entire set of matching linens. Guest complained about cooking utensils - all the pots and pans were new and in top condition. The toilet had no leak or problem that we could ascertain. It is our policy to attend to complaints right away. This guest did not raise these matters with us until after she left. Had she done when she was there we would have been there like a shot. In fact we ask guests to advise us if they need anything or if there is anything that we can do to make there stay more comfortable. Unfortunately the real issue with this person is that Whispers is a Heritage Property. Whispers did not suit her taste (she wanted a chrome and glass box chain hotel). That was her complaint when she arrived and it did not justify a refund based on that alone. We are very clear in our advertising that we have preserved a piece of vintage Florida just like the corner soda shop, Whispers is a Heritage icon of 60's Florida. The majority of our guests love the intimate atmosphere and the coziness of a small inn which is what Whispers is. It would be like staying at an English Inn or a German Gashaus and no liking it because it is not an American Holiday Inn! If your taste leans towards McHotels and you want a cookie cutter hotel then you should stay at a Best Western or a Holiday Inn rather than complain about our truth in advertising! Badmouthing us and finding fault with everything is childish and spiteful. Why contact us after the fact when you made no effort to call us us when we could have had the opportunity to please you? Respectfully, Jeff and Sharda
Whispers Resort, Treasure Island

Not what we had expected

  • 1 of 5

The house wasn't newly cleaned. Dusty lamps, blinds + dead one-inch insects in master bedroom, filthy utensils (we had to start buying washing up-liquid + brush in order to be able to use things from the kitchen!), 4 lamps that needed new bulbs, a toaster... The toaster didn't work and got replaced - with an old and dirty one. The "centralheating" (which was a kind of machine sitting on the livingroom wall) wasn't working and never got repaired in the 8 days we were in the house. Washing machine and dryer was in another building and had to be paid for extra. TV in spare bedroom was at least 20 years old but as it didn't work, the children couldn't watch anything on it anyway. Barbecue was nonexcisting.

Such a shame that the property wasn't as promised.

The location is good (close to water/beach, supermarket within walking distance) but property is not well-maintained. We can not recommend the property.

Owner's Response: THIS IS NOT MY PROPERTY The details do not correspond. All our condos as of 2013 have this year all been completely renovated - new flat screen TV's in living and bedrooms, painted, new furniture, new doors, completely new kitchens and cupboards, new linens, many have new European style zoned A/C's climate controllable from each room. There is a brand new dock as well. New appliances for the laundry.
