HISTORY of the building:

Since April 2006, we are the First PRIVATE OWNERS in SOUTH BEACH CONDO HOTEL , Unit 508, 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 drinking 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, FACING TOTALLY THE BEACHES and the ever changing SUNSETS.

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 also here in Treasure Island on Isle of Capri, only five 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 by the full view from the 5th floor facing the wide and white beaches, as we are located DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH. No other building, 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.

Furnished with granite counter top you can prepare the meals while you are overlooking the beaches to the GULF OF MEXICO or you can watch TV.

We invested in a new Dream Sleeper Air Mattress Queen Size for the pullout couch in the living room. 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. 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.

We positioned a tall reading lamp next to the couch and this allows you to read one of our books or play a game together.

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, Master Bedroom with King Size Bed and 40 " Smart TV 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 600 counts and they feel and look amazing. Adjacent to the Master Bedroom is one bathroom with the normal size bathtub/shower, a commode and a 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.

Two HAIR DRYERS and four white Komono style bathrobes are available.

You will find enough towels for your personal use and another set of two big Beach Towels.

We provide rejuvenating shower and bath gel.

Wireless High Speed Internet Access is FREE!

PARKING on the premises is FREE!

We, Peter and Monika, are the owners and we manage and rent our condo ONLY OURSELVES. Sometimes we need the help of a professional company for the work 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 TOTALLY 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:

I, Monika, take all these photos myself and this is what you see: 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, 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 in 2017/18. An International South American Airline flies directly from Tampa to Panama with the connections to the whole continent of South America. 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 50 years, now I am the smallest in size 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 .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 Treasure Island

LOCATION - Prime Location!!!


We bought this condo, an end unit from north/east to south/west TOTALLY FACING THE BEACHES and situated DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH. Both bedrooms are facing north, very important here in Florida, keeping the sun out and staying cool. Facing south/west 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. It is fully furnished to the best of our own European/Floridian taste.

Being DIRECTLY SITUATED DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH, this condo is airy, bright and with light colors in white and yellow being the dominant colors. You receive the pleasure of the most AMAZING SUNSETS from the big balcony facing the beaches.

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

My husband Peter, who is DIPL.-ING, Master's Degree in engineering from the University of Berlin, and I married in Germany, had two boys, and we all lived in Germany for most of our lives. After Peter retired we both decided to stay and live here. Our adult boys live and work with their families in Germany. They visit us when their time allows them to do so.

What makes this condo unique

NEW in 2016/Information 2017.

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. Proof with Hurricane Irma in September 2017.

No damage.

This condo building, built in 2000/2001, remodeled in 2004/2005 and repainted in 2016 has a fantastic name:


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 and in August 2017 a 50 " SMART TV in the living room.

We really fell in love with this building and condo because of the LOCATION. Location is a MUST being DIRECTLY ON THE BEACHES, no neighboring buildings disturbing your views and a quiet and serene surrounding. You only hear the waves from the Gulf of Mexico while sitting on the balcony.

Stay here for a stress-free vacation experience in a condo owned by a caring & thoughtful person.

  • 5 of 5

All the reviews before ours are accurate and we fully agree with them. Instead of duplicating those sentiments, I will just say this condo and in particular the owner Monika get a 100 out of a 100 from us for all things important in a rental experience. The biggest differentiator on this rental experience for us was that owner Monika is extremely considerate, 24/7 available to assist, and very caring for all requests to customize your experience per your needs. The photos of the condo and the outdoors are fully accurate. The condo is equipped like a home. You will love staying here!

Owner's Response: Hello, Johnny and family, It is always our pleasure meeting with our guests and listening to your life stories and also your expectation from a vacation on the beach, what to do, where to dine, where to shop and all the things which are important to you, our guests. Peter, my husband, and I traveled around the world, so we had our experiences also, positive and not so good. Therefore, we realize what is important to you, being in a new area, new surroundings, etc, and therefore, we try to know your wishes and fulfill them before you are asking. I love what I am doing, meeting you, our guests and chatting a bit.. Monika and Peter

Wonderful week.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an amazing week spent in Treasure Island at Monika's condo. Right from the very beginning when booking she was wonderful to work with, very responsive and very helpful. The condo itself is great. It's very clean, updated, well-organized. Everything you could ever possibly need is there. The washer and dryer are so helpful when at the beach and it's the very best on the market. All beach needs were in the front hallway closet, chairs, umbrellas, even a cart to bring them out in, pool toys, etc. They even provided the ping pong paddles and balls for the table located downstairs. The pool area is very nicely maintained and comfortable. Bathrooms are well stocked with all the towels you could possibly need. Each bathroom had two nice big beach towels for your use. All furniture is in great shape and well maintained. The two highlights, no doubt about it, are the beautiful balcony with the million dollar views and the beach. We enjoyed many sunsets there and took some amazing pictures. We were blessed with beautiful weather and spent much time on the beach. You can rent cabanas from a vendor on the beach for either a half day or full day. We found that convenient and gave our northern skin a break from the sun. All in all, we had a wonderful time with no complaints. Monika is a delight and so helpful in whatever you could possible need, be it information or any problems whatsoever. Do not hesitate to book with this lovely lady.

Very nice clean condo

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Monica and Peter's condo. Our weather was perfect all week,your condo is very clean and comfortable and the sunsets were beautiful and the view of the beach and gulf were great. Although we were surprised the beach area was a distance away. We really enjoyed the walking path and restuarant s nearby and John's Pass.It's a great area to stay as the restuarants are in walking distance as well as a grocery store.It was very nice to meet Monica and we enjoyed our visit with her! She takes great pride in her condo and it certainlyshows that! J&L Illinois

Owner's Response: Dear J and L and friends, thank you for your friendly review and comment about our condo and about our area. I can understand that you thought the water line of the Gulf of Mexico would have been a bit closer to the border of our property and gardens, but the sandy beaches start right there and you feel the white sand under your feet as soon as you leave our property and lush gardens. The advantage of the wider beach is that we never need renourishment on this part of the beaches. With renourishment on other parts along the beaches, comes noise of the working machinery and the inconvenience of stepping over large tubes. We are happy that you enjoyed a wonderful vacation and you are more than welcome to stay with us again. Monika and Peter

relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

Monika was a perfect host and did everything she could to make our stay a pleasant one. We loved the special touches such as the extended shower curtains, cuddly blanket on cool Florida evenings, fruit, and two coffee pots. We cooked a lot and enjoyed the clean Weber grill on site and my husband relaxed in the hammocks under the palm trees. I preferred the heated pool and conversation with other residents. Lovely two weeks!!

Owner's Response: Dear Vickie and Walter, You were wonderful and very interesting guests and I loved to chat with you. This is really my pleasure in renting our condo to you, our guests, meeting so many amazing people and listen to your life stories. The weather was just perfect for a January in Florida, not too cold, not too windy, sunny and only sometimes some clouds. I am so happy to hear that you loved our beautiful condo, as you are world travelers and loved our white and wide beaches, even on a day with fog. Thanks and you are more than welcome to come back any time to occupy our condo again. Monika and Peter

Great Location and Accomodations!

  • 4 of 5

Peter and Monika, take pride in their property and it shows. We loved the view and proximity to the ocean, restaurants and John's Pass. Monika met us personally on our arrival and shared with us a few of her favorite restaurants and told us where to find John's pass and the local grocery store (helpful hints). We'd definitely stay again and offer referrals. Thank you, Denise

Owner's Response: Dear Denise and family, thank you very much for your very friendly review. Unfortunately, you could only stay for a long weekend of three nights with your family, because your teenagers had to be back to school in time . And then - well, we have to admit - the weather was not really cooperating. For this time of the year in Florida and on our beaches, it was too cold, even for you from Minnesota. You enjoyed a brisk walk on the walkway, because you had plenty of sunshine and there was the Kite competition on the beaches with the strong wind, which you could watch from our big balcony. We loved you as our guests and perhaps you will find the time to come again and stay a bit longer and with better weather conditions. Monika and Peter

We, the owners, Peter and Monika , 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, are two restaurants: 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 Seattle.

St. Petersburg is a beautiful and very unique city of about 250.000 inhabitants, situated directly on Tampa Bay with new condo buildings and also old and historic hotels. It is really worthwhile to walk around Straub Park and have a seat in one of the many restaurants and locales.

Other activities here on our beaches are: Skite Flying, Sand Sculptures called THE OVATION, sun bathing, and there is something for everybody to do.

Golf and Tennis: For you and your family the city of Treasure Island offers the Treasure Bay Golf PUBLIC and Tennis Courts for a reasonable price. The Golf course has 9 holes and there are 10 clay like Har-true tennis courts. This facility is located on the Intracoastal Waterway with wide views over the water and in summer there is always a breeze which makes it easy for all guests to play outside.

Shopping: Close by is Tyrone Mall, where you find International and national suppliers, like H & M, Macys, etc. and also different restaurants to relax after the shopping tour.

About 30 minutes south, close to Sarasota, is the Outlet Mall Ellenton with hundreds of shops and many different restaurants. Enough temptation for everybody.

We are sure you will find a gift and a souvenir for all your loved ones at home.

New in the Fall of 2016 and continuing in 2017: The Ferry Service from John's Pass along the different small towns like hop on and off. At the moment this service is only on the weekends available.

By Special Request from a former guest:
Please leave our condo/investment in the condition prior to your arrival so that future guests can enjoy our beautiful and well kept condo also. To be more specific:
Do not leave any open or used left overs in the refrigerator, empty all garbage cans, do not take anything with you which does not belong to you or your family members. Please do not destroy anything.
TIME permitting and only if you feel like helping me to prepare the condo for the next guests:
Please put ONLY the big striped pool/ beach towels in the washing machine and dryer in the evening before you leave, because they take extra time drying.
Please place the used white towels in the washing machine in the morning before you leave and start the process of the washing machine. Washing liquid is provided by us. Take the used linen off the beds and put them on one bed altogether. NO washing needed. I prefer doing this myself.
