Overview

Belle Vista Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths,(Sleeps 5 comfortably)

Our condo, Vistas 301 is the unit with the American flag flying on the balcony in our opening picture. No fooling around here, it's a TRUE GULF FRONT CONDO (not a side unit) with many recent upgrades and is the nicest unit in the building. Vistas on the Gulf is a 38 unit condo built on St. Pete Beach in 2003. If you've never been here, the beach is a great place for families, quiet and relaxing. We are the original owners of unit 301 and spend as much time as possible there, it has become our oasis! The gulf front view is just incredible, not only during the day, but look at our pictures to see some of the spectacular sunsets and rainbows we've seen!

The unique thing about our unit is that we have two balconies--a large balcony directly facing west to the beach and Gulf of Mexico. Another balcony is off the second bedroom and faces south. This view gives you a great pool view and a beautiful gulf view. One of the nice features of our condo, is that you can walk right out to the beach and can enjoy several beach restaurants/bars and never even have to put on your shoes!

Each unit is individually owned and we have added many personal touches. Master bedroom has a queen bed with a new firm premium mattress purchased May 2016 and other bedroom has a bunk bed with stairs, twin mattress top / full size firm mattress bottom purchased May 2016. The living room also has a newer double sized sofa-sleeper . As nice as the unit is, you'll most likely be enjoying the beautiful beach and weather outside! Newer power leather recliner, new carpets purchased Dec 2015. Air conditioning system recently installed. Everything in our unit operates as it should.

We clean, upgrade and replace items regularly during each of our 9-10 weeks we visit each year. We take great pride in our condo and believe in putting money back into it to keep it fresh, updated and desireable. Just like you, we like staying in a clean updated well maintained condo when we vacation. We re invest in our condo continuously hoping that our guests have a wonderful experience. We love repeat guests.

About The Owner

My wife and I have owned our beach condo since construction was completed in March 2003 and take great pride in our unit. We visit often from Chicago and are on top of any little repairs or missing household items. It's more than an investment property and your enjoyment during your vacation is important to us! We 're always cleaning, replacing or upgrading something during our 9-10 weeks we visit each year. We believe in putting money back into our condo to keep it clean, fresh and desirable. We want you to have a wonderful experience and contact us directly for your next visit to St Pete Beach. We love having repeat guests.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2003

Why The Owner chose St Pete Beach

We love St. Pete Beach! My wife's grandparents and parents have been visiting since the 40's. SPB is totally laid back.

Tee shirts, shorts and flip flops is the dress code there. I always say SPB is more like Key West then Palm Beach. Relax and leave your formal wear at home. Our kids are always safe. We never have an issue with them walking on the beach day or night. Not to worry Mom and Dad, no college parties or wet tee shirt contests going on here. This is a great family place, very peaceful and quiet for you snow birds escaping from the harsh northern winters.

What makes this condo unique

St Pete Beach has beautiful white sand beaches. It has a relaxing laid back feeling to it.

Enjoy a leisurely walk along the beach or pick up the pace and run while enjoying the surf, sun and relaxing atmosphere.

Don't forget to smile and say hello to the other walkers and runners as they greet you.

Enjoy the many beach side and casual restaurants near my condo. Publix Super Market is 1/4 mile north of us on Gulf Blvd, easy to walk to. There is a trolley (bus) stop in front of our building for easy traveling up and down Gulf Blvd all the way to Clearwater.

You'll love our unit as everyone does as you'll see in the guest comment book we keep in our living room.

Fantastic Beach vacation condo

  • 5 of 5

Can not praise this home any higher as our family vacation was just perfect. The unit itself was clean neat and tidy, has everything and more you need to enjoy a perfet St Pete Beach vacation. The BIG plus is a fantastic REAL Gulf front unit with an amazing balcony to enjoy the sun sets and watch the beach life go by. My little girl actually cried when we left as she thought this unit was her new home (I wish) it was very hard to close the unit door for the last time before heading for the airport but we will return that is a given.

Yes there is a lot of choice on St Pete Beach but you will not be disappointed with this home and thats what it is "A Home".

Thanks for all your help and guidance Jim you sir are a true gent and I hope to be in touch real soon for another booking

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

Even though there was construction going on next door, we still totally enjoyed our stay in the condo. The view is spectacular. We

found great restaurants close by. The property is well-maintained and so is the condo. The owner called to make sure everything was ok. I am sure the construction has been completed next door. So, if you get the chance stay in this wonderful, relaxing Gulf front unit.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review! Our guests are important to us. Just wanted to comment that as of the end of December, 2007, the construction is about over, and what little they have left to do seems to be "inside" work. Thanks again for your comments!

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Sunsets from the oceanfront balcony were amazing! We also saw dolphins almost every day. The pictures accurately represent the condo. No high rises condos nearby so this area of St Pete beach is nice and quiet with plenty of space to spread out on the beach. The smaller complex is great for families that like to be able to easily go back and forth from the condo to the pool/ beach throughout the day for snacks, drinks, etc. Condo has plenty of room for a family of 4, especially with 2 full bathrooms. Owner was responsive and easy to work with. Would definitely stay again!

Absolute perfection

  • 5 of 5

It is sad to have to leave this corner gulf view unit, which should be renamed "A little slice of heaven". Everything was fantastic, from the accommodations to the views, and the food from different restaurants up and down the beach. Any any all needs are right here with no need to leave, and it is sad to go, but WE WILL be back!

Amazing views, Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering the condo we found water views from every window! The ocean front balcony was perfect for watching beautiful sunsets. My family enjoyed our stay and found everything we needed from beach chairs to cooking supplies. The condo was clean and nicely decorated. The second bedroom was perfect for my children. The owners emailed us to make sure we were happy with the condo and they also took the time to offer recommendations for local restaurants. I would highly recommend this condo for an unforgettable vacation to St Pete Beach!!

We loved staying here, this condo has it all.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The view of the gulf and beach from the balcony is amazing. We loved our mornings on the balcony having breakfast, reading the newspaper watching the beach walkers and boats go by. We found the condo to be very clean, nicely updated and had everything we needed. It's bright, airy and and everything the owner says it is in his listing, no surprises. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen is stocked with everything you'll need to prepare a meal and we loved the power recliner. The owner is very responsive and a pleasure to work with. You can tell they're very proud of their condo. We will definitely be returning for our next visit.
