About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms and 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This is a luxury, condominium directly on pristine 'St Pete Beach'. The building is directly on the beautiful white sandy beach and our unit has an amazing southwest view. It is independently managed to ensure exceptional cleaning, luxury towels and linens,and excellent customer service. We also have many extra amenities specific to our unit which include a 36 inch LCD TV, 50 inch Plasma TV in living room, Tempurpedic-like King Mattress in master bedroom, twin beds in 2nd bedroom, and new master bedroom and living room furniture. Additional information can be emailed to you upon request.

This particular unit in the building has the BEST COMBINATION OF FLOOR PLAN, GULF VIEW and POOL VIEW available. It has a double balcony off the living room and master bedroom which overlooks the gorgeous, white, sandy beach and an inviting pool and hot tub. The kitchen, dining room, and living room are open and spacious with lots of light. The 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds and a flat screen tv with dvd player. The master bedroom has a new high quality king mattress set with Tommy Bahama comforter and luxury linens. (Please see photo with mattress description below.) We also just purchased a brand new flat screen LCD tv for the living room.

The unit is fully furnished, professionally decorated, and maintained to high standards. It has a fully-equipped spacious kitchen and two full baths, all of which have beautiful, 'granite countertops'. The main living area has beautiful, beige tile and the master bedroom has a textured designer carpet. The large dining area is situated between the living and kitchen areas and can seat 4-5 people comfortably. The unit is approximately 750 sq ft plus the balcony. A floor plan can be seen as one of the photos in this listing below also.

Just a short walk through the pool area and out to the white sandy beach, you can find a nice peaceful spot to sit and relax. After enjoying the peaceful gulf waters, watching the seaguls, listening to the ocean, and feeling the sunshine, you can easily walk back to the condo, take a dip in the pool, and walk the beach to a nice restaurant or enjoy a meal that you can prepare yourself in our fully equipped kitchen.

Walking the beach to the south is the beautiful and historical 'Don Cesar Hotel', where you can enjoy a nice lunch, dinner, or ice cream. On the walk there you will pass an outdoor, beach bar/restaurant with volleyball, live music and great casual food. Just to the north are other fantastic beach-side tiki bars and restaurants which are in walking distance.

As for activities, there is a beach rental place for water bikes, kayaks, jet skis, sail boats, etc... about a half mile north of our unit. We recommend the parasailing. It is an unforgettable experience where you will see some exceptional views. There are also fishing, snorkeling, dolpin-watching, sunset sailing boat trips and more at a marina less than a mile away from our unit.

(visit the website for 'dolphinlandings' on St. Pete Beach for more details).

Additionally, Busch Gardens Amusement Park, great museums, and excellent shopping are all nearby. 'Disney World' is just a 2 hour drive.

With our unit, you can enjoy the 'PERSONAL TOUCH' of a privately-managed beach condominium. We may be able to offer early check-in or late check-out depending on our guest schedule. Since we live nearby and visit the unit often, we have added some items which make it a comfortable beach retreat for monthly stays. Please let me know if you have any special requests and I will try to accommodate you. We want you to have a fabulous vacation and return year after year!

About Donna

My husband, David, and I have 2 boys and we live about 45 minutes from our beach condo. David is a sales engineer and I am a computer analyst in addition to handling the rental of our condo. We lead busy lives since we work full time during the week and also are very involved with the boys schooling and activities. I enjoy handling the rental of our one condo since I feel that I have more control over providing the best vacation possible for my guests. I love getting to know all my guests, hearing from them year after year, and sharing my beach retreat with them. It is extremely rewarding work for me, and still is after 14 years.

Donna purchased this condo in 2003

Why Donna chose St Pete Beach

David and I have traveled all around the world and have seen many places. Additionally, we have lived in several Florida towns and have selected the Clearwater/St. Pete area as our home. We love St. Pete Beach for many reasons, and particularily our area of the the beach. Every time we visited the condo, prior to purchasing, we noticed that the beach and water was beautiful and peaceful at all hours of the day. The sand is like white sugar and the water is great for swimming or floating. We love long walks on the beach and stopping for lunch, dinner, or drinks along the way. Our boys enjoy playing paddle ball, building sand castles, and boogie bording in the water. It is a great place to create family memories that will last forever. I also can't forget the importance of allowing us to rejuvinate and relax (There are no crowds, traffic, or rushing around...only the sounds of the ocean, sitting or walking on the beach, and watching beautiful sunsets.) The condo has been a real blessing.

What makes this condo unique

With our unit, you get a spacious living area that accommodates a family of 4 very comfortably. Long stays are easy since it is equipped with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, designer furnishings, luxury linens, and more. You get the peace and serenity of being directly on the beautiful beach. Additionally, we hope you will get some restful nights sleep on an extremely comfortable king temperpedic-like bed with luxury pillows and linens. You can also enjoy our large 50 inch plasma TV in the living room when you want to cool-off in the air conditioning. New, quality master bedroom furniture including a large dresser to store all your clothes was just delivered, August 10, 2017. New photos will be coming soon.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at St. Pete Beach, our first time here. Condo was great, warm, plenty of room! Great views from the balcony! Couldn't have asked for prettier weather.

Had a wonderful beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

Some highlights of the week we spent at the Vistas On the Gulf

- Proximity / access to the beach was perfect. Donna, having access to the beach chairs and umbrella was a life-saver. Thank you. This was especially valuable on our last day when the sun was in full-blaze. We left a wake board for others to use.

- Spent three full-days enjoying the beach and the pool. The beach was never crowded and the waves were perfect.

- Enjoyed dinners at a number of the local restaurants. My favorite was Shells

- Everything we needed was within a mile or so of the Vistas. Publix was very close.

- The Condo met our needs very nicely. Nothing fancy, but everything was clean and worked perfectly. It had everything we needed.

- The Vistas property was very clean and well maintained

Suggestions:

- Adding a cooler to the "beach closet" would be perfect.

- If you have a favorite pillow, I'd suggest bringing it. My wife has neck / back issues and the pillows provided did not provide enough support.

Awesome Little Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is a little small however the layout makes it very easy to work in. The views are awesome and the owners do a beautiful job in providing some extras such as nice linens/towels (not the cheap stuff), beach chairs, umbrella, and sunscreen (in case you forgot). The bedding was amazing and NOT your usual crappy cheap mattresses. The pool and hot tub were great and well kept. The location if very convenient to shops/restaurants and the proximity to the beach was fabulous. If you were to drive by, you would probably miss it, which makes this a gem of a place.

Loved it!!! We had a fabulous time.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The location was perfect! It was right on the beach, with a great view. The condo was very well stocked with everything we needed. Our bed was comfortable, with quality sheets. The bathroom towels were nice as well. We had plenty of cooking utensils for our home cooked meals. We rented a DVD To watch a movie in the bedroom, the remote did not have a source button to redirect the signal to the DVD player. The complex has a quiet time after 11:00 p.m. We stayed 5 nights and overall the other guest were very quiet. There was one night there were people at the pool around 4 a.m. being extremely loud. I asked them to please quiet down or I would notify security. The number I found which was posted on the kitchen wall directed me to leave a message and they would take care of the problem tomorrow. I did have some concerns as what to do if I really did have a security issue, that did not need an emergency police call. Overall these were my only issues, and I 100% would stay here again!!!!

Great location just steps from the beach!

  • 4 of 5

Condo itself was very similar to others we have stayed in while visiting Florida--I think the great thing about this property is the ability to go back and forth between the pool and the beach, which was just step away. Location made it easy to enjoy the gorgeous gulf sunsets as well!
