Why Owner/Manager chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We really like the location of Sunglow Condo Motel. It is located right on the beach and so close to so many great amenities.

What makes this condo unique

It’s just a short minutes scenic walk along beautiful Gulf Blvd to Wynn Dixie grocery store, dress&gift shops, hair salons , beachy restaurants /beach bars or the World’s Famous John’s Pass waterfront Boardwalk. The popular beach trolley stops out front and is a must scenic ride along the scenic Blvd to Clearwater Beach or St.Petersburg Beach at the other end. A 1 day pass is just $2.00. Guests and friends always enjoy the barbeque cookout, under the palm trees, at Sunglow.

Loved My Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed a week, had a great time!! The 1 bedroom apartment was clean, comfortable, and had everything I needed to enjoy my stay. I loved that there are gas grills to use too! Steps from the gulf, can't beat it! They thought of everything, even chairs, umbrellas, and beach toys! I really enjoyed the rocking chairs in the shade, and the spot tucked away with 2 chairs for watching a sunset. Thanks Doc for your hospitality!!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sunglow last May and loved it! The condo was nice and spacious with a good size living room, kitchen, and bedroom; everything you could need. It was all clean. Very close to the grocery store and convenient to other shops. You are literally steps from the beach. The beach was perfect, without the crowd. Private and relaxing. Doc was wonderful too. He is very nice and makes sure you have everything you need. We can't wait to go back!

A great place for peace and quiet a stone's throw from the beach and the deep blue sea. I had the luxury of a one bedroom apartment with full kitchen, living room and bathroom and walk in closet. The owner, Doc was a great guy who broke the ice quickly with his friendly nature and told me where the nearest sports bar was, just down the street when he found out I was a hockey fan. I like to think Sunglow is a real Ma and Pa run place where you see and chat with friendly people walking by and where the owner always has time to shoot the breeze with you unlike if you stayed in a hotel room where you just close the door. I just recommended the place to all my Family and Friends in Canada, the U.S., the West Indies, Puerto Rico, South America and Great Britain.

Owner (Doc) put a damper on our experience

  • 2 of 5

The positives: the proximity to the beach. We loved being able to walk right out to the beach anytime we wanted. The manager, Judy, aimed to please.

BUT - the negatives: the place was not cleaned well when we arrived. The floor made our bare feet black on the bottom. The kitchen sink had some food crusted in it. The toilet bowl was not cleaned, etc.

I spent over an hour of my vacation the first full day cleaning the toilet, washing the floor... and I'm not a clean freak! Judy was going to waive the charge that was the cleaning fee when she became aware of the situation. However, Doc, the owner, did not want to waive the cleaning fee. I had to really push my point to get him to concede to a PARTIAL refund of the cleaning fee. He offered no apology for the place not being cleaned well. He didn't seem to care one bit that I spent my vacation time cleaning up after prior renters. In fact, he laughed and said that if he waived the cleaning fee then it was like paying me to clean! It was very insulting! We left the place cleaner than when we came. The way it was handled was very off-putting.

Owner's Response: Our First Complaint. On Dec 23, 2016, date of guests check in, my wife and I flew to Lake Tahoe, California to spend Christmas with my sons family and our new born 2 month old grandson. My manager Judy, who is a very experienced condo Housekeeper, was personally embarrassed with guests complaints...she had cleaned the condo. She said, perhaps maintenance workers entered after she had cleaned condo? She offered to move guests back to their originally booked ground floor condo, but guests refused... guests refused her offer to clean and also refused to pay standard 125. cleaning, power & cable fee at check in. I apologized to the guest, she agreed to accept 75. for her inconvenience

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic and met all of our needs while celebrating thanksgiving at the Beach. The condo space was clean, comfortable, and well appointed with all your needs. The proximity to the beach was fantastic. Doc was a wonderful host providing us with a warm greeting, plenty of supply's from a chairs to fishing rods to enjoy our time, and plenty of tips on local places and events to enjoy during our stay. If your not looking for ultra posh, and want a clean space with plenty of fun for the whole family, and literally be in the beach then this is the place! I would recommend this place to everyone!

Beach Bum's Paradise

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the Ritz Carton, this isn't the place. If you are looking for an inexpensive condo, 50 paces from the beach, then look no further. The condo was a little dated, but clean, comfortable with new TV and central air. And the access to the beach was fabulous. The owner was friendly and on site every day. If I had had any problems, I am sure that he would have fixed them immediately.

The location made Treasure Island, Reddington Beach and Indian Shores a quick drive. I could have walked to most places I wanted to go.

I can't wait to stay again.
