About Joe & Renee Daum

We live in Tampa and love going to the beach condo whenever we can. We have three girls who love the beach and we have many great memories of our times at the beach.

Joe & Renee Daum purchased this condo in 2003

Why Joe & Renee Daum chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We used to live in one of the larger units but decided to move to Tampa closer to work. Before we put it on the market we offered one of the other owners a chance to trade our 3 bedroom place for their 2 bedroom condo. They jumped on it and we moved to South Tampa. So now we have the best of both worlds.

What makes this condo unique

Piper's Nest only has 10 units. About half the owners live there or use it on the weekends and the other half rent. All the owners are very friendly and good people. They make all our renters feel right at home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really did enjoy the condo. The accomodations were wonderful. Thank you again for letting us rent on such short notice. We will certainly keep the Sand Piper in mind for future vacations.

Very comfortable with a great beach!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our week stay at Piper's Nest and highly recommend this condo to others as well as a future repeat stay for ourselves.

The condo is spacious, clean and has everything you need. We have 4 children (ages 10, 8, 5, & 1) and there was a pack&play and booster seat for the toddler, as well as a TV I'm the 2nd bedroom for the older kids if they wanted some space. Speaking of space, my parents had considered coming with us, and I think we could have easily had them join us- with the 3 queen beds, a pullout sofa bed, and the pack&play!

As for the beach, it was AMAZING! This condo is at the back of the building, but there is only the one front condo unit separating it from the beach! We loved that we still had a beach view from the deck and in seconds your feet are in the sand! Since the condo building is a smaller one, we had a good section of beach all to ourselves most of the time. The water was clear with very little seaweed and the birding was excellent!!! We spent one morning north at Honeymoon Island, where the beach was supposed to be better, but ended up returning to the far superior beach at the condo.

There is plenty of shopping, dining, and extracurricular activities near the condo or within a short drive. The Clearwater Aquarium, hope of the famed dolphin, Winter, is an eight minute drive and John's Pass (a shopping and dining hub) is about 8 minutes in the opposite direction. There is a bird sanctuary, miniature golf, little shops and dining/ice cream just a few minutes from the condo as well.

We LOVED our stay at Piper's Nest and would go back again next year!

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your visit and our spacious condo so much that the full size beds appeared to be queens. They are perfect for any age. The beach can be quiet at times and you definitely feel like it's a little piece of paradise all to yourself. We look forward to having you stay again.

Great value, book early.

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation at Piper's Nest #10 was delightful. Hosts Joe and Renee work hard to ensure their unit is clean and pleasant. Everything functions properly. Covered parking and beach access are most convenient. This smaller complex has a very friendly and accommodating atmosphere. Its location on Gulf Boulevard is ideal, being close to fine restaurants, stores, and attractions, and adjoins a wide pristine sandy beach. The Pub, Guppy's and Salt Rock Grill are restaurants we especially liked.

We are grateful to have found this condo and hopefully can reserve it in the future.

Kerns and Tina.

Nice little spot on the beach

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Piper's Nest for a week and it was a great spot to relax and enjoy the beach. I didn't even have to put on flip-flops, just barefoot down the steps and into the ocean each day! We found the photos of the condo to be very accurate and there was plenty of space for four adults to ramble around and not get in each other's hair.

If you are looking for the most contemporary of finishes and fancy interior, this is not the place for you. This is a comfortable, lived-in beach property. Although the unit could use a little touch up paint and handyman work in a few small spots, it was, in general, well-maintained and we didn't want for anything (finding a box fan in the closet made my week!). There was a treasure trove of items in the storage unit as well to use on the beach.

Not a lot of dining options within walking distance (although we walked a couple miles each way to breakfast because the weather was so beautiful) but there are ice cream shops close by in both directions! The owners were great to work with and very responsive to the few questions we had before the trip and upon arrival.

Owner's Response: Hi Tom, thanks for the review. We are glad that you all enjoyed your week at Piper's Nest! Thank you for letting us know that there are a few things that need attention. After a busy winter season we will be at the condo this weekend and it's a great opportunity for us to personally take care of any issues that need attention. Hope to see you again on your next trip to beautiful Tampa Bay.

Everything you need to enjoy the sand and surf

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed each and every day we stayed at this little gem of a condo. My family would come back in a heartbeat. The easiest access to the beach next to popping up a tent on the sand. My wife and I walked for miles in both directions and looked forward to our next stroll. We played games on the beach during the day and games on the large coffee table during the night. Easily accommodated our family of five. Very nice people to rent from too!

Wonderful place to get out of the frozen tundra!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was wonderful. The condo was perfect for our family and the location was great. Our grandchildren had so much fun and at the end of the day were exhausted from all the beach time. The weather was fantastic during our stay which only added to our fun. Joe and Renee were very pleasant to work with and encouraged us to call with any questions. We hope we can return next year again.
