Overview

About the property

DIRECTLY on the BEACH, our unit runs NORTH EAST to SOUTH WEST, whole building.

ROMANCE - RECREATION - RELAXATION

we offer everything to YOU.

NEW in April, 2016.

Big investment and not every owner in our building has these new SLIDING GLASS DOORS, easy to roll and pull and Hurricane Proof according to the latest and newest requirements and standards.

We are the ONLY OWNERS in the whole building who installed in our condo every window with HURRICANE PROOF WINDOWS, six windows altogether plus the two sliding glass doors.

NEW in March 2017.

We added an automatic wireless thermostat, ENERGY SAVING, which shuts down when the entrance door or the sliding glass door is open.

NEW in January 2017.

In the Master Bedroom we added a 40 " TV.

In the same master bedroom as well as in the twin bedroom we installed dark blue curtains which can black out completely the sun and lights, if you wish to do so.

Kitchen: Coffee Machine for single cups, reusable cups, from Cuisinart.

Cutting board out of Corian material. Excellent!

Since April 2006, we are PRIVATE OWNERS in SOUTH BEACH CONDO HOTEL in Treasure Island. This end of the hallway CONDO is on the 5th floor out of six floors, totally facing the beaches with a big balcony to relax while enjoying a cup of coffee/tea or a glass of wine and observing the most awesome sunsets.

Our condo has windows in every room facing east, north, west and south with the big balcony,

We personally take the time and pride to care for our condo and we give you an outstanding service. I do the CLEANING myself and I even IRON the linen for you.

We live PRIVATELY here in Treasure Island on Isle of Capri, only seven minutes away by car. You can always reach us 24/7 and the Ladies from Front Desk during their office hours and we all will assist you in any way possible.

Our condo is VERY well equipped with everything you find in your own home and we do the designing ourselves, the European style.

You enter our condo and you are attracted to the full view from the 5th floor facing the wide and white beaches, as we are located DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH. No other building or street lamp or palm tree is obstructing your view over the beaches.

The kitchen is the heart of our condo and right in the center of the living room. We had the kitchen totally refurbished with a so called Face Lift in Spring 2013.

Furnished with a granite counter top you can prepare the meals while you are overlooking the beaches to the wide waters or - you can also watch TV. We bought a new TV 47 ' wide in April 2014, also a new DVD player and you can order on Netflix your own films. New coffee machine for single serve.

In June 2014, we installed a new Dream Sleeper Air Mattress Queen Size for the pullout couch in the living room and I tried it out myself. You don't feel the bars any more and it feels like heaven. Finally, we found THE solution for this sleeper couch.

We put a new fabric on the couch with a bright yellow pattern with small butterflies in summer 2013. What a difference new upholstery makes! We can pull the cover off the cushions, put these in the washing machine and they come out new and clean and ready for your use.

If you are covered in sunscreen, we provide a big 100 % cotton throw in red to be placed over the yellow fabric. You still can sit comfortably on the couch, because I can wash the red throw every time and it will be new for each new guest.

Last Fall we installed a reading lamp and now you can read one of our books or have a game together with other family members.

One guest mentioned she liked to have binoculars. We fulfilled her wish and now you can use them by watching dolphins playing in the ocean and birds flocking on the beaches. And sometimes, if you are patient enough you can see manatees swimming slowly in the ocean near the beaches.

We like to mention that we always redecorate and improve our condo with the help of your personal input if you suggest something you would like to see and use.

Our condo offers two bedrooms, the Master Bedroom has a King Size Bed with a 40 " Smart TV, installed in January 2017, and the second bedroom with two Twin Size beds and a TV 28 ", which convert to a King Size bed also, if you wish to do so.

The LINEN we PROVIDE are 100 % sateen cotton with 600 counts and they feel and look amazing and you sleep 'like in heaven'. Adjacent to the Master Bedroom is one bathroom with the normal size bathtub/shower, a commode and a hand washbasin with granite counter top. The second bathroom is bigger and closer to the living room/kitchen. Both bathrooms are equipped with enough towels and extra two big beach towels.

I could not resist to buy some new, fancy towels with embroideries of different fish, thick and plush and 100 % cotton in the Fall of 2014.

You can use the HAIR DRYERS in each bathroom and if you like, put a white KIMONO style bathrobe on and relax on the big balcony. Four bathrobes are available.

Again, you will find enough towels for your personal use and another set of two big Beach Towels. You will find the same set of fancy towels in both bathrooms and hopefully you like them as much as we do.

We provide rain bath refreshing shower and bath gel from NEUTROGENA. You Just have to Bring Your Own Toothbrush and your personal items.

Wireless High Speed Internet Access is FREE!

PARKING on the premises is FREE!

We like to mention just a few more items we renewed lately:

New Refrigerator with glass shelves

New quiet Dryer in July 2016 and New Washer

Four comfortable beach chairs in our condo

Sun umbrella

NEW Red wagon/cart to take to the beaches - only for YOUR use.

We, Peter and Monika Gewecke, are the owners since 2006 and since then we manage and rent our condo ONLY OURSELVES. Sometimes we need the help of some professional companies for the work and repair we are not able to do.

Building Information:

The whole building was repainted in 2016 with bright yellow and violet stripes and it is very showy and stands out.

This building was constructed in 2000/2001 and remodeled and updated in 2005. There are all together 40 units on six floors, but only 10 corner units with 2 bed/2 bathrooms with 925 sq Ft and the big balcony of 100 sq Ft facing the beaches with full view to accommodate up to 6 guests, best suited for 2 - 4 adults and/or 2 smaller children.

Please look at the photos again: We take all these photos ourselves, so this is what you see and NO MANIPULATION is done.

On April 06, 2013, The New Beach Trail was opened and built by the City of Treasure Island. The new $ 1,2 million trail now meanders parallel to the Gulf of Mexico behind our condo building, with more than twenty beach access nodes along the path linked to street entrances along Gulf Boulevard. Turtle-friendly lighting lines the trail and decorative nautical images are embedded, through a sandblasting technique, into the tan and ruby-red concrete. One of the best features of the new trail is the sand wall, capped with a bench top, which provides a nearly two miles long seat along the Gulf of Mexico.

You can stroll along water's edge to famous JOHN'S PASS VILLAGE with all the diversity you can imagine; many different RESTAURANTS, a Gamble Ship, para-gliding or para-sailing, boat- or water scooter rentals and you can even rent a bicycle and explore the neighborhood.

Restaurants on the beach with MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT are 'Sloppy Joes' and different pizzerias, cafes and more restaurants, newly opened is Feola's Italian Ristorante situated along the walkway.

PUBLIX opened a new store for groceries and everything you need for a relaxed vacation here in Treasure Island close by only seven minutes away by car. You park your car on the ground level in the shade and enter the elevators to the second floor for shopping. How cool is this?

New restaurants open in walking distance and also a New BEACH SHOP with an Ice cream parlor. A BUS STOP is on Gulf Boulevard close by and you are invited to take a stroll by bus from CLEARWATER BEACH to PASS-A-GRILL, approx. 35 miles along our beaches for about $ 1.50 per person in 2016.

Attractions in DRIVING DISTANCE :

If you like to explore the CITY OF ST. PETERSBURG, we recommend in downtown different very interesting Museums, i.e. the NEW DALI Museum with changing additional exhibits, the NEW CHIHULY Glass blowing COLLECTION and the History Museum with the FIRST COMMERCIAL AIRLINE in the United States flying across Tampa Bay in 1921 between St. Petersburg and Tampa. The INTERNATIONAL ART MUSEUM wing, overlooking Tampa Bay.

There is Straub Park to stroll along and you find many new and exquisite shops, small galleries, cafes and restaurants to sit outside - just get the Floridian Feeling! All locations are on famous BEACH DRIVE and experience the new opening of the shopping center in Sun Dial Square.

As a Day Trip recommendation from us would be to drive over to Tampa and visit Tampa Aquarium, Busch Gardens with all the exciting adventures, Lowery Zoo or further to Orlando with the Disney Attractions. It will take you about one to two and a half hours driving time to get there.

Tampa International Airport gets a facelift and an International South American Airline flies directly from Tampa to Panama with the connections to the whole continent of South America and started in November 2016 to CUBA. Lufthansa flies direct to Frankfurt/Germany and from there you connect to the rest of the eastern world.

The Port of Tampa is getting more important also. From the Port many different Cruise Lines part to different destinations to the Caribbean Islands, Middle and South America and NEW since May 2016 to CUBA.

About Monika & Peter Gewecke

We are a family of four and are originally from Germany. When Peter retired in 1994, we decided to replace our home in Germany/ Berlin and Duesseldorf to live here in Florida, in Treasure Island. Peter is my husband of almost 48 years, now I am the smallest in the family, as you can see in this photo taken in 2012. Markus is our older son and Stefan is our younger son. Only Peter and I live here and our sons and their families live and work in Germany. They all come and visit us, when their time allows them to do so. We, as parents, have more time and we fly regularly to Germany to visit them. We love our new primary home on Isle of Capri in the City of Treasure Island, where we met many wonderful people and became friends with many of them and we also enjoy our good and quiet neighborhood. I am an avid League tennis player hitting the tiny yellow balls in my free time.

Besides this, our main goal is our business/condo rental and, of course, YOU - OUR GUESTS. We live almost year round here in Treasure Island to take the time and pride to give you an outstanding service.

Monika & Peter Gewecke purchased this condo in 2006

Why Monika & Peter Gewecke chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

LOCATION - Prime Location!!! We bought this condo, which is a unit at the end of the hallway from north/east to south totally facing the beaches. Both bedrooms are facing north, which is very important here in Florida, so these rooms stay always cool, and facing the south/west side are balcony and living room with kitchen. Our condo is on the 5th floor out of 6 floors. From every window and every room you have direct views to the beaches to the horizon, the Gulf of Mexico. Our condo offers 925 sq Ft and a big balcony of 100 sq Ft in full view of the beaches and FACING TOTALLY the beaches and is fully furnished to the best of our own European/Floridian taste. Being directly situated on the beach, this condo is airy, bright and with light colors in white and yellow being the dominant colors and you can enjoy the most amazing sunsets from the big balcony facing the beaches. Each time we are over in the condo ourselves, we take the time to sit outside on the balcony on the love seat and enjoy a drink, could be a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. It depends how much time we have to get the condo ready for you, our new guests.

Before we choose living here in Florida, we traveled around the world to many different places and countries and we preferred and decided to be part of this beautiful wide beach here in Florida's most calm and sunny part of the world.

On a very private note: I was Stewardess/Flight Attendant with Air Canada, being multilingual, English, French, German and stationed in Montreal and in Toronto and spent my vacation at that time in Treasure Island. Yes, I really did this and I fell in love with this city of Treasure Island. I married my husband Peter, lived in Germany many years and after Peter retired as a Mechanical and Chemical Engineer we both decided, after spending a couple of vacations in this part of Florida, to stay and live here for our retirement.

Now we are trying to give the fascination of this area back to you, our guests.

What makes this condo unique

NEW in 2016.

We installed new sliding glass doors in the living room towards the balcony. They run smoothly and are according to the latest standards and requirements for Hurricane Proof Windows and Doors.

This condo building, built in 2000/2001, remodeled in 2004/2005 and repainted in 2016 has a fantastic name: SOUTH BEACH CONDO HOTEL. The first impression you get while arriving are the distinctive colors on the facade: Bright Yellow, softer yellow and dark Violet. On the outside of the two staircases you see the name in big letters, lit at night: SOUTH BEACH.

It is so outstanding and unique, everybody knows this building! Really South Beach Colors!

In 2004/05 the whole building was refurbished and updated with granite counter tops and new appliances. We, Peter and Monika, always re-decorate and update the furnishing and window decorations throughout the different rooms.In January 2017 we installed new decorations of dark blue/black curtains to block out the lights at night. We also installed a new 40 " Smart TV in the master bedroom. We really fell in love with this building and condo because of the LOCATION. Location is a MUST being DIRECTLY ON THE BEACHES, no neighbors disturbing your views and a quiet and serene surrounding. You only hear the waves from the Gulf of Mexico while sitting on the balcony.

Lovely condo in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Florida's Gulf Coast and couldn't be happier with the condo we stayed in. Monica and Peter are gracious hosts and their condo is in a sweet spot -- a short walk in the sand to the water and walking distance to a coffee shop, restaurants, ice cream shop, etc. A great ocean view and the complex was very family oriented with a ping pong table, swimming pool, and quiet evenings.

Owner's Response: Hello, dear Patty and family, It was my pleasure meeting you and your family of five. I didn't know that this was your first stay here in Treasure Island and even in Florida. I am very happy that you loved our condo and even with some hours of rain you still walked to the beach every day and enjoyed a long swim in the Gulf of Mexico. To travel with three teenagers is not so easy and you forgot a stuffed Lama, a very cute cuddly animal, which I will send back to you within the next days. Have a good summer at home in Colorado, Monika

Extraordinary vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This property is exceptional. The owners obviously care about the comfort and convenience of their guests. The kitchen has all equipment needed to cook for a large family reunion. The view of spectatcular Treasure Island from the fifth floor corner unit draws us back year after year. We look forward to returning in the future!

You are one of our preferred guests, not only as returning guests but also leaving our condo in excellent condition. Joe has always good ideas for improving our condo and I follow his advice. Once he told us to change the big sliding glass door and we and many other owners in our building followed his recommendation. I look forward to meeting you in the future again. Monika and Peter

BFF Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Super clean condo supplied with everything needed for the beach. The cart made it easy to transport chairs, cooler and towels (all provided). The view from our balcony was spectacular; allowing us to enjoy sunsets and our morning coffee. Monika was right, just bring your toothbrush - she even provides robes! We hope to return next year!

Amazing Gulf beach condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in Treasure Island! The condo has EVERYTHING you could need for a perfect vacation. With the location right on the beach, my family and I loved that everything was there waiting for us to use! In the condo we had beach towels, beach chairs, an umbrella, sand toys for my kids (which were a huge hit), and most importantly A WAGON to pack it all into for our walk out to the water! That was a game changer for us (we have been on beach vacations where we've had to carry everything to the beach, hoping nothing gets lost along the way).

The views are amazing and I loved starting my day with coffee on the balcony overlooking the Gulf. In the evening, the sunset views are picture perfect! I loved just sitting on the balcony reading.

There are plenty of restaurants, cafes, ice cream parlors, and shops within walking distance of the condo, so there's no need to always jump in the car.

The unit was perfect for my family, as we all had the space and privacy that we needed. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for a great, clean "just like home" place to stay in a family friendly area.

Owner's Response: Dear Elizabeth and family, It was my pleasure meeting you and your husband and the two little boys, age 6 and 2. I realize it is not easy to find a kid friendly condo for a family like yours, but my experience is superb. We once had two small boys also and we wanted to enjoy a relaxed vacation and we found this always on the beaches and with warm waters like the Gulf of Mexico. While the boys are occupied with building sand castles with their Dad, mothers have a time-off. Thank you for being a great guest. Monika and Peter

We, the owners, Peter and Monika Gewecke, put a Special Folder in our condo for you to browse through all the different venues, attractions, shopping, etc. which Treasure Island and neighboring towns have to offer. We always update this folder.

Treasure Island has the most beautiful and wide beaches with bright white sand in Pinellas County. Our coastline starts at Clearwater Beach on the northern point of the islands and ends in Pass-A-Grill, the most southern destination, 34 miles altogether over a couple of bridges over the Intracoastal Waterways.

From our condo you can walk for hours and miles without crossing any street and there is no traffic allowed at all on our beaches.

I like to point out that dogs are not allowed on the beaches, only on a leach in company of an adult on the walkways.

Grocery Shopping at Publix is a pleasure, because it is only five minutes away by car, as well as Walgreens is close by. In town we have the post office , different banks and speciality shops like flower shop, a gym, new: oil and vinigar, ABC wine store and many more.

For your additional exploring - about 20 minutes by car south from us - is Fort de Soto National Park. In this park which is located on the mouth of Tampa Bay, you can admire nature all surrounding you. If you like you can explore the old Fort, built in 1898, but was never active. There are some old canons on display and the whole area is part of old Floridian History.

Many Restaurants of different tastes are in walking distance from the condo. Just to mention a few: Middle Grounds (excellent), The Pearl, next to the clock tower, (excellent) a couple of Pizza places or just grab a sandwich at Foxi's. On the beaches itself, walking from our condo only five minutes on the beach walkway, is an Italian Restaurant Feola's and Sloppy Joe.

Besides this, there is John Pass Village, a tourist attractions and friendly village in walking distance from our condo along the shoreline. It will take you about fifteen minutes walking from our condo building. John Pass Village has about two hundred different venues and a couple of restaurants for you to explore. At John Pass is a board-walk, from which you can admire wild playing dolphins while drinking a cup of coffee or tea or having an ice-cream, home made!

The New DALI Museum in downtown St. Petersburg is about the Spanish extraordinary artist Salvadore Dali and opened in January 2011. The building itself is already spectacular from the outside. Another First Class Museum is the world glass artist Dale CHIHULY from California.
