About Chris Lavigne

My name is Chris Lavigne. Although a fairly new owner at Gulf Winds, I fell in love with Upham Beach when I was a kid. I live nearby in Clearwater. I love the beach, water, and great restaurants - so this condo location is perfect for me...and hopefully for you as well. Let me know when you are ready book my condo for some fun in the sun!

Chris Lavigne purchased this condo in 2013

Why Chris Lavigne chose St Pete Beach

Gulf Winds has the best location in St. Pete Beach. There are several restaurants, beach bars, convenient stores, beach retail stores and ice cream parlors all within 5-10 minute walk. The condo is located at Upham Beach which provides showers, beach rentals, breakfast/lunch grill and beach volley ball. Gulf Winds is by far the best value and location in St. Pete Beach.

What makes this condo unique

Condo includes what you will need to enjoy the beach such as beach chairs, beach umbrella, cooler, beach toys for kids, floats and fishing rods.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you, we had a great stay - everything was fine in the condo. Thank you for all the Christmas goodies that were put out, that was very thoughtful.

BTW, we used your beach chairs and the cooler - that came in very handy, thank you. We had a great stay and will definitely recommend you to friends and give you a call when we venture that way again.

Great spot for a stay

  • 4 of 5
The apartment is really very nice and close to the beautiful beach. The people in the office are very nice and helpful. There is plenty of room to park your car, the beach is just across the street, there is a pool and washing facilities and the apartement is clean and very well equipped.

beach surprise

  • 5 of 5
I have been going to ST Pete beach for 20years and for the most part have stayed at the same condo every year. This year I decided to try a different place and I couldn't have been happier. I doubt you could find a better deal anywhere. Nice clean condo with a perfect location. You are in the sand after exiting the building in approximately 50 yards. I will be back again and again. Great end of the beach and so close to many things to do and explore. If you have a car you will barely need to move it. The owner was great to work with and on-site management was friendly and helpful. Don't let the price fool you, this condo is a hidden gem. Thanks Chris :)

SIMPLE, CLOSE TO BEACH, AND CHEAP!

  • 4 of 5
If you are looking for a simple condo, close to the beach, with a nice pool for a good price then look no further. We had no problems checking in, parking, or getting to a from the beach during our stay. Our kids slept on the futon in the living room and we slept in the bedroom and everything worked out great. Close to McDonalds, an ice cream shop, and many restuarants!
