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 down the hallway to the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

My experience booking was wonderful. Kathy was able to answer all of my questions and she provided additional resource info. The property was clean and well kept. We stayed for a week and had no complaints. This is a family friendly condo. The kitchen was stocked nicely, all we need was our food.

We did have to ask for fresh towels and linen twice, mainly because my son stayed in the pool a lot. Housekeeping does not come everyday but the staff did not have an issue with us swapping out soiled linen for fresh ones.

The pool area was clean and comfy and so was the baby pool that my young children enjoyed. My husband appreciated the workout area, which was also clean and up-to-date.

The parking was a little congested( consideration was taken because of the 4th of July holiday) but it defiantly helped having a designated spot.

We would return!

Owner's Response: I am glad that our condo met your expectations and that you had a good time. Sorry about the towels. We do not provide housekeeping services until the end of the stay but there is a complimentary trash and towel service after each second day at the condo. If you desire fresh towels daily you can always pick them up at the front desk. Keep my information handy for another trip to paradise!

Perfect Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about the condo. Perfect size and perfect view. The staff was really nice and helpful. The condo was really clean and the beach was steps away. It was at a perfect location at Treasure Island and the beach area behind the condo was not too crowded at all. We were able to enjoy the beach without so many people in the way.

We rented a condo for the first time at Sunset Vista through one of the owners Kathy. She was very helpful and provided information to make our stay great. We had four adults and one child (age 4 ) and the condo accommodations were great. The condo was very clean and well maintained. The view from the condo was great which overlooked the pool and the ocean. It was situated right on the beach for easy access. Our 4 year old granddaughter loved the kiddy pool which was perfect for her age. The Johns Pass boardwalk was not to far away and we visited it twice. W took the pirate ship tour which was great and a lot of fun for the kids. We purchased trolley tickets for $5.00 for the whole day and went to Clearwater Beach Pier 60 for dinner which was not to far away. I would recommend Sunset Vista for a great getaway.

Owner's Response: The trolley ride is a great way to see the area and the price is right! I knew you would love the splash pad for your granddaughter. We have the only "kiddie" pool on the beach and have found that it gets a good deal of use. Cant wait to have you back again!

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!
