About Kathy Wilhelm

My husband and I are native to Buffalo New York. The cold winters in Buffalo are what brought us to vacation throughout Florida when our children were younger. We liked the laid back family atmosphere of the Treasure Island area and specifically Sunset Vistas. My husband also enjoys fishing and it is world class in this area. Being able to navigate the beaches with ease was a plus for us. There are times we only use our car for groceries.

Kathy Wilhelm purchased this condo in 2008

Why Kathy Wilhelm chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Being small business owners it is difficult to get away for long periods of time and being in the Sunset Vistas rental program was a plus for us. Customer service is very important to us as vacationers and we wanted the same great service for our guests. No punching in a code to get into the condo or having to call an answering service if you need assistance. That's what are staff are for. We love the feeling of being at a hotel with all the amenities, yet, inside you have all of the conveniences of home. For us, it is the best of both worlds. The hotel atmosphere with the convenience and space of a condo and the ability to have breakfast and lunch "in" was an added plus. We have found this a big time and cost savings.

What makes this condo unique

Having access to the staff at the property is what we like the best. It gives you a sense of security knowing that as a vacationer your personal contact with me is not over once the reservation is made. Our staff are there for you 24/7. They are a great group of people that will do everything they can to make your stay more pleasurable. Our location is within 20 minutes to downtown St. Pete, 20 minutes to Clearwater, 30 minutes to Tampa International Airport, 10 minute walk to Johns Pass, a 1 hour boat trip to the best fishing anyone could ask for and of course a 2 minute walk to the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay! Great location as we were able to walk to most things! We will definitely recommend this property to friends and family!

Great beach weekend

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property. Everything is well-maintained, the beach is broad and lovely, John's Pass is just down the road if you decide you need to do something other than relax and enjoy the beach, sunsets are magnificent. The accommodations are comfortable, clean and up-to-date. We had just the right amount of space for two couples. This was our second visit and we look forward to going back again.

Girls Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have chosen a better property and location for our girl's getaway. The condo was just as advertised - a beautiful, comfortable home away from home. All of the customer service people were amazing other than our initial check in gal. She seemed more interested in getting off work than trying to get us in a little early. We arrived at 10:00 a.m. from Vermont and called to see if they could get us in early but in the end that didn't work out. After getting in the room everything went spectacular. Anything we needed was addressed immediately by friendly staff. The view and location was amazing - awesome beach. We truly appreciated the take and leave bin of beach chairs, toys, etc. A great idea. Property is well kept and very comfortable beds. Certainly hope to go back really soon. My initial contact for the property was so helpful and answered all of our questions. Couldn't have asked for more. Thanks.

Owner's Response: I am happy that all worked out for you and that the vacation was what you were looking for. Unfortunately, check in and check out times can be a problem. Everyone wants to check out late and check in early. The management staff try their best to accommodate but they still have to do housekeeping and any maintenance tasks between guests. We state on the confirmation that check in is 4:00 and check out 11:0 but if the condo is ready early they will allow you to check in. Usually this does not happen before 1:30-2:00. In no way could the condo have been ready at 10:00. However, what some of my guests do who have early flights is book the day before so that they can check in anytime they want. I have even done this and it works out great. Thanks for taking the time to review your stay and I look forward to hearing from you in the future for another trip!

Great first two visit, went to heck on our third visit

  • 3 of 5

Know what room assignment you have before going. We where promised something close towards the beach and got a noisy traffic room that was next to busy street. Just the basic where clean, if you wanted a nightmare don't look on top of refrigerators or shelving. cloth dryer was another story, don't know how a completely pug lint vent ever would work thus was afraid to us dryer because of possibly starting a fire. Had to hang dry wet clothing. If you are having drinks at the pole side beware of the Security Guard as he has took his authority to far. Carried a tape measure to measure set back of all drinks from pole's edge, unreal I tell you. Was our third time staying and lets say I believe it will be our last. Beware they add a tip charge to everything you purchase and a few employees where not worth it.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that we did not meet your expectations during this stay. As an owner we use the on site management company because of the fact that they can address any and all issues immediately if the guest brings it to our attention. I only wish that I had been made aware if the issues or that you had brought it to the attention of the staff on site. I have called the manager and they will go up and repair the dryer vent and attend to the top of the refrigerator immediately. They are also going to look into the "tip" automatically added to your bar bill and the issue of the drinks at the pool. In my experience the only time that there is a security issue at the pool is if there is glass. The security guard will ask that the drinks be poured into plastic cups. Again, I am sorry that we did not have the opportunity to make things right for you. We appreciate your feedback as we strive to improve our services.

Car: recommended

Sunset Vistas is easily accessible to the many attractions along the west coast of Florida. Locally, Treasure Island is home to John's Pass Fishing and Shopping Village, and one of Florida's finest white sandy beaches. Dinner and casino cruises are only steps away as are adventure tours, including parasailing, scuba diving and jet skiing.

In nearby St. Petersburg you can enjoy fascinating museums, The Pier, and Fort De Soto Beach (recently rated the top beach in the United States). Tarpon Springs is a quaint Greek fishing village known for sponge diving. In Tampa you will want to visit historic Ybor City, the Florida Aquarium, Lowry Park Zoo, MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry) and of course Busch Gardens and Adventure Island. Make Sunset Vistas your home to experience Tampa Bay Devil Rays baseball, Buccaneer NFL football or Lightning NHL hockey. Our staff will be delighted to help steer you in the direction of your most memorable vacation experience!
