We are looking forward to being back at this condo in March which will be our 8th year. If I could rate this more than the 5 stars I certainly would. The condo itself has a million dollar view of the Boca Ciega Bay. From the 4th floor you can look down into the Bay and see the Dolphins, pelicans, etc. The condo itself is breathtaking. The pictures that are posted in VRBO gives you a clear view of what the rooms are like. The condo is sparkling clean and well equipped. The furniture is beautiful. The landlords, Barb and Mel, are attentive and make sure you are equipped with all the basic necessities. Wifi is supplied in the condo which is a huge service for our family.The kitchen is well equipped with quality dishes and cooking supplies. There is a gorgeous swimming pool where water is kept about 85 degrees. Here you can meet other residence and form new friendships. There is also a lovely community room which offers wifi, a place for a meeting, enjoy the library of books, which are furnished by the residents. Once a week they offer bingo games in the community room.
The location of this condo is so convenient to many wonderful restaurants, places of interests in downtown St Petersburg such as Salvador Dali Museum, Chihuly Museum. You are very close to Route 275 that connects you quickly to 75 which connects you to the north and south. You can get to see a baseball game easily at Tropicana field.
However, more importantly is that you will enjoy this gorgeous condo with a wonderful balcony. Sitting on this balcony and watching the view is always the highlight of the day. Barb and Mel Shapiro are the best landlords you could have. They've worked very hard to keep this condo in the best possible shape. I highly recommend this condo.
We are two couples from Scotland and we have just spent the most fantastic two weeks in this condo on Isla Del Sol. The condo is equipped to a very high standard and could not be faulted in any way. The owner Mel is a charming and very helpful host. This was our second visit to this condo (our friends' first) and it did not disappoint. Morning coffees on the balcony watching the wildlife just below was truly idyllic.
We saw dolphins every day, stingrays, ospreys plucking fish from the bay, small hammerhead sharks, storks, herons, pelicans and on one day a large manatee swimming no more than twelve feet from the shore.
The condo is ideally situated for the myriad of restaurants in the area. We especially enjoyed Billy's Stone Crab on Tierra Verde, The Salty Rim, Gators, Sea Critters on Passe de Grille, and Leverock's. The boardwalk at St John's Pass should not be missed with great restaurants and music.
We had Sunday brunch at the Isla Del Sol Yacht Club. One of the best breakfast buffets we have ever seen and very reasonably priced. Breakfast was also enjoyed at the Don Cesar Hotel, again great choice and first class service. The girls then enjoyed a marvellous afternoon of pampering at the spa in the Don Cesar Hotel.
The Condo is also very convenient for visiting St Petersburg and Tampa itself. The Salvador Dali Museum and the Science Museum in Tampa were particular delights. The boys went to their first baseball game at nearby Tropicana Field and the indoor Arena Football at Downtown St Petersburg. For us Scots very different sports but an experience not to be missed.
All in all this Condo is superb and is exactly as described in the listing. Words however cannot fully describe the view and the pleasure of sitting on that balcony. You have to experience it for yourself.
We shall be doing exactly that when we return in a couple of year's time.
We stayed in this condo for 1 1/2 month while our house was being renovated. First, let me say the pictures do not do justice to the beauty of this immaculate condo. The view is probably the best in the area. This condo is so well appointed; you will not need anything. All is supplied, from appliances to beach towels. The beds are very comfortable, there are plenty of linens, the laundry room is well equiped and care and concern for the comfort of tenants is visible throughout. One thing that impressed us also is how visibly happy everybody we met were - relaxed, smiling, friendly. Mel and Barbara are the perfect hosts. From this condo you can walk to the beach (1 mile), go for dinner on foot, enjoy brunch at the beautiful club, sun yourself at the pool. 30 minutes from Tampa airport and near major interstates, this quiet oasis is unequaled. We live in this area and can assure you you will not want to leave at the end of your stay. Trust us, come see for yourself what an incredible rental this is. DEFINITELY UPSCALE, well maintained complex. Lots of green spaces. Peaceful water views, dolphins swimming, fish jumping...a therapeutic environment. We definitely would return and do not hesitate to recommend this unit.
Mel the owner was what I should expect; polite, helpful, pleasant and friendly. Made us feel at home throughout our stay. We would certainly stay again and, even pass the wonderful experience along to other friends...............
This condo is everything that is advertised and more. This 4th floor condo has a breathtaking view of the bay. The condo is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. The landlord has strict rules against smoking and because of it the condo has been kept in great shape. I would rhighly recommend this property and am looking forward to returning next season. La Puerto is quiet. There are plenty activities just across the bridge in St. Pete Beach.
Linda and I have vacationed in this area many times, but none of the places we have stayed comes close to the beauty and location of Mel and Barb's Condo. Stay and enjoy the pool/fantastic Condo or the beaches-shopping-restaurants-fun Parks. All are good choices. ENJOY!!
Beaches, Fort DeSoto Park which is known for it's white sandy beaches and excellent shelling
