Overview

Belle Vista Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This is a new, 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, IPOD Docking station with speakers and radio, Tempurpedic-like King Mattress in master bedroom, twin beds and flat screen tv in 2nd room, and more. 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 living room sofa is a queen-sized sleeper sofa, if needed.

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 12 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 or 5 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 bed with luxury pillows and linens. You can also enjoy our brand new flat screen LCD tv in the living room when you want to cool-off in the air conditioning.

A relax-full retreat

  • 5 of 5

This rental was exactly as advertised. Even had a few "extras" as previous renters left behind some kitchen essentials.

The weather was wonderful of course! This location is convenient to shops as well. My family will certainly use this location again.

Pero's condo St Pete's beach

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Pero's condo . They had everything we needed. the beach was beautiful. WE were a short stay so I appreciated the beach chairs and umbrella. the condo office has the name of a local company that rents beach chairs , coolers and umbrella. We utilized that also. I recommend that if u are a long stay , u ask for more storage options. The second bedroom doesn't have any dressers no closet. The master had limited closet space. We were a short stay and lived out of suitcases. If I was there longer it would of been uncomfortable

But it worked for us

Awesome condo right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. Not a fancy high rise or anything, but it had everything we needed and very reasonable.

Kitchen (pretty well stocked), (2) bathrooms, (2) bedrooms, nice pool, hot tub, grills and right on the beach. What more could you ask for? For the two of us, it was perfect. I was there for a trade show with another guy.

Lots if cool restaurants in the area within walking distance. Just up the beach from the famous Don Cortez hotel and a short walk the other direction to another hotel with a restaurant called Bongos that was rigjt on the beach, 11-11 club up on the 11th floor deck and the 12th floor rotating restaurant called Spinners.

Plus about 10 minutes from Tropicana Field.

I would for sure stay there again.

Great location on the Beach

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at the condo after a number of days at Disney to enjoy a slower pace and the sun and sand. We got exactly that, a great beach with warm water, a good sized pool that was heated and an efficient condo.

The beds were comfortable along with the furniture as well. The condo was stocked with most everything you would need and things others left... We left a beach umbrella for the next guests.

My only complaint would be it needs some updating. The kitchen utensils are old and beat up, the carpet could use a good steam clean or replaced. The BBQ utensil set was in a box and when opened was filthy from the last guests, table was sticky...maybe the cleaning company needs a talkin' too... but would I stay here again? For sure.

Great restaurants were close by, parking was easy and check in was a breeze.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I appreciate your comments for improvement. I will replace some of the older large utensils. We do plan to replace the master bedroom carpet with wood floors this August. I apologize for the grilling tools being dirty. In all my 13 years of renting my unit, this is the first time for this to occur. The large set of high end grilling tools is supposed to be a nice amenity, not a disappointment. I will definitely talk to my cleaning company about the table being sticky to ensure this doesn't occur again. I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and I look forward to hearing from you again soon. Kind Regards, Donna

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of four and I stayed over March break and had an amazing time. The unit was clean and had everything we needed. The view from the balcony was spectacular. The building is located centrally with stores and restaurants within walking distance. We have already booked our vacation here next year.
