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.

Thank you for our comfortable two-month stay. There were many wonderful amenities in our condo accommodations and in surrounding areas. They include (but are not limited to) the following:

Sunny balcony with beautiful Gulf view

Beautiful beach

New stove --- to bake pecan pies

Heated pool

Exercise classes three times weekly

Laundry area

Excellent staff

Friendly guests from all over the world

Antique fainting couch --- comfortable but should be replaced.

Several restaurants and/or bars & grills within walking distance

Excellent shopping and attractions were in close proximity to the beach area. These include (but are not limited to) various museums and site seeing tours (by both trolley and bus). We enjoyed every moment of our stay and look forward to our visit next year.
