About Steve Phillippy, for the Phillippy family

Steve Phillippy for the entire Phillippy family. My wife & I retired in May 2013 to make more time for travel, volunteer work, grandchildren, extended family, making a difference in and adding value to the world.

Steve Phillippy, for the Phillippy family purchased this condo in 2000

Why Steve Phillippy, for the Phillippy family chose Belleair Beach

The Beach! The white, soft sand, of the warmer Gulf of Mexico! At our SunSet Sands in Belleair Beach, you are very close to some of the largest homes on the beaches of Florida, which you can walk in front of on the beach directly from our SunSet Sands patio. Belleair Beach is a semi-private beach meaning that no one but residents or clients can park in Belleair Beach.

What makes this condo unique

You are on the ground floor and can walk directly to the sandy beach on the Gulf of Mexico. You can smell, hear and see the Gulf of Mexico from your bedroom, living room, kitchen and patio. You don't need shoes to get to the sand and the gulf from our SunSet Sands. The sunsets! You should always make time for the sunsets.

New Englander in search of sunshine!

  • 5 of 5

We are two senior women who traveled together. This is a lovely unit and we enjoyed our two weeks there. The weather was cool for that time of year but the sunshine and beauty of the area certainly made up for what we had left behind in New England. Steve Phillipy, the owner, was very attentive to our needs and we would be happy to return another time. The kitchen was very well-equipped and it was nice to go in and find everything we needed without having to rush out to a store for little items. I have stayed in Indian Rocks Beach before but never in Belleair and found this to be a much quieter, less busy area. That being said, I would point out that one would need a car if staying here since there are no shops or restaurants within walking distance. However a couple of miles either way down the boulevard and you will find everything you need. I would not hesitate in recommending this to anyone looking for the beauty of the area.

Fabulous vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this condo with our two sons, one age 3 and one infant of 7 months. Everything was absolutely perfect and I can't think of a single thing that would have made our vacation any better! I loved being on the ground floor where my 3 year old couldn't hurt himself on any stairs. One of us (my husband or I) would sit on the patio with the monitor while the baby napped, and the other would play at the pool or the beach with the 3-year old. The person sitting on the patio could watch us playing the whole time, which was so nice! Everything was SO close. I also loved that the whole complex was only 7 units across and 2 units tall. It is set up so you can sort of see and chat with your neighbors (unlike a high rise condo complex where you have to take an elevator down to the beach). Everyone staying there was so very nice. I was afraid they would not like children there, but on the contrary, everyone talked with us and smiled at the kids playing.

The location was perfect. Taking walks, we noticed that about a mile to the north and a mile to the south it gets VERY busy and congested with larger high-rise condo complexes. We were so happy that we picked a quieter location which is mostly surrounded by huge houses, not high-rise units. It felt more laid back and spread out. The beach was full of shells which we enjoyed looking at. During the week we were there the sunset was gorgeous 6 out of 7 nights! We only had one cloudy night! We ended up getting take out food or cooking every night just because we didn't want to miss the sunset. We also saw dolphins jumping in the morning!

The condo was extremely clean when we arrived and everything was exactly as described. We very much appreciated having the infant crib (pack n play) available to us, since that was one less thing we had to check at the airport! It seemed like a brand new crib. We used many of the toys/beach items in the second bedroom closet, which we also appreciated. We used the beach umbrella so the baby could stay out of the sun, and the 3-year old played with all of the sand toys. There are chairs available, too. I personally used the boogie board A LOT :) It's very addicting! My 3 year old did not want to try it! The TV is very nice, too, and connected to Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, etc. Since our boys wake up very early, the TV very handy :)

Many thanks to the Phillipy family for opening their home to our family!

Great location and setting

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this condo for the first two weeks of February 2015 and we absolutely loved it. It was exactly as described on the web site and the owner was very attentive to being sure we enjoyed ourselves. One of our sons, his wife and two year old son joined us for 5 days. We felt very comfortable being on the first floor with no stairs, balconies or elevators to worry about. The condo was comfortable and clean. The kitchen was functional but could use an update. The best thing was the location. You could see the sunset from our kitchen, master bedroom, living room and patio! We walked out the patio to a pool and then a beautiful beach. The only negative was the pool was not heated. The condo is in a small and very quiet complex. It is in Belleair Beach which is south of Clearwater with its high rises and north of Indian Rock Shores with many shops and places to eat but Belleair Beach is a residential neighborhood and very quiet. We had a rent a car and had easy day trips to Clearwater, St. Petes, Sarasota and Venice. We did one day at Animal Kingdom and while doable it was a long day. Most of all we walked the beach for hours, sat in the sun and listened to the surf. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful location, terrific environment!

  • 5 of 5

Magnificent sunsets, calm Gulf beach, quiet surroundings, yet minutes from all shopping and Clearwater Beach activity. Very well equipped, little needed on arrival. Went out, cooked in, even with a Polar Vortex to the North, the days were fine. We drove in, but you could easily bring enough on a plane and rent a car. Even saw a few Dolphins!

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented 2 units in Sonrisa Complex to celebrate my father in-law's 90th birthday and 65th wedding anniversary for our immediate family. My in-laws and 2 younger sons stayed in this unit and loved it. It was wonderful to have a fully stocked beach closet for the kids...no need to buy a thing! My mother in-law loved having a washer/dryer in the unit. My father in-law loved being on the ground floor. He was able to sit on the patio and watch the kids at the beach or pool. The boys loved the new smart tv! Thank you to Steve who came to greet us upon arrival to make sure we had everything we needed and make a minor repair to the guest bathroom. He even followed up with a phone call a week later to our home. Unit was clean and well-maintained. Thank you for offering your unit for rent! Highly recommend.
