About Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez

Two sons and a daughter complete our family of five. Charlotte and I have vacationed in Hawaii, Turks & Caicos, Bahamas, South America - etc. and all great wonderful vacation locations. But we always relax and spend time on the Gulf Beaches of Florida. The location is always ideal for weather, activities, friends and family. Great location and easy to get to and so much to do. Pro sports teams in Tampa, Busch Gardens, Gulf beauty and of course we would always go to Orlando and enjoy everything Orlando has to offer - from Disney, to Sea World to the Orlando Magic. This is simply a great location and this condo is beachfront - top floor - 40 minutes from Tampa airport - 30 minutes from Clearwater airport - and located in Treasure Island on the world famous St. Pete beaches . . . what more can you say. There is so much to do - deep see fishing, charters, John's Pass - etc. Getting here is easy for Western Hemisphere and European vacationers and you can start your vacation right away. We have enjoyed this area immensely.

Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez purchased this Condo in 2010

Why Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez chose Saint Petersburg

We have vacationed in the Central Gulf area for over 25 years. Our first stay at Sunset Vistas was in 2007 - and we thought it was gorgeous. Activities for young and old and our second son and third child greatly enjoyed the Kiddy pool. The two older ones spent all day in the larger pool and then at sunset on the gorgeous beach. The beach is truly world class - just Google Map it and see from above then walk it when you are there. Activities in the area are endless. Charlotte enjoyed the restaurants and shopping nearby. Great location to fly to - great location to drive to - and great location to center your vacation from and/or enjoy all that is literally within walking distance of Sunset Vistas!

What makes this Condo unique

There is a lot. Sweeping views - see it on Google - from this top floor condo, sunset walks while watching seagulls coast by, hot tub, pool, grills - bike rides on the beach. Middle Grounds Grill is a 5 minute walk away - Rickey T's another 2 minutes and more great places to eat - Sloppy Joe's to the south (at Bilmar Hotel) - and Bubba Gumps and Hooters in John's Pass (and more). Also, and for one price ALL DAY, the Sun Coast Trolley will take you from St. Pete Beach to Sand Key (Clearwater) with unlimited stops - all for one price! Again, you don't need a car - other family members can arrive earlier/later when you give them your security code AND if you do have a car (or are on business) the significant others can still get around - if they are not at the beach or the pool all day long. Again, there is a shuttle to/from the airport ($36 last checked) and great trolley on the beach. Ferry, Boat and Charter Related activities abound out of John's Pass which is a hub for such items. Including Deep Sea Fishing Charters - Parasailing - Sailing Charters - Speed Boat Tours - Honeymoon Ferry Service - Dimares Yachts - Tampa Bay Boat Charters - Capt George Roux - Jet Skis - and more Golf, Golf Course and Adventure Golf Related from Smuggler's Cove Adventure Golf to Treasure Bay Golf and Tennis. Pro Sports Teams in the Area Tampa Bay Buccaneers » American Football --- Tampa Bay Devil Rays » Baseball --- Tampa Bay Lightning » Ice Hockey --- Orlando Magic » Basketball ---

There are actually two pools & two hot tubs. One hot tub by the kiddie pool and the other by the larger and gorgeous family pool. There is a cafe/store in the center of the property along with a fitness room & business center. In between the beachfront pool areas is the Tiki Bar, Lounge Area & Walkway to the beach. The condo has tasteful accessories throughout. Also, Leaders Casual Quality Florida Furniture, and a beveled mirror in the living room provides an additional & gorgeous reflective view of the Gulf from this top floor condo. The balcony is accessible from the living room & the master bedroom. Reserved covered parking with two elevators nearby. True luxury, great location, top floor penthouse by the ocean - all of this and the benefits of a world class city make for a great extended Florida vacation

                                                                  Perfect for our family!! Clean, felt like home, and right on the beach!! Thank you!!

                                                                  Just what we were looking for!

                                                                  After looking at a few properties, we decided to rent with Rick and Charlotte. We are very glad we did!

                                                                  The condo was beautiful and clean, and we really appreciated the bottle of wine they left for us! The smart TV was great for watching netflix and hulu on rainy days.

                                                                  Sunset Vistas was in a perfect location for our group; we had some that wanted to hang by the beach every day and others who made the short walk to John's Pass to shop and eat on days that were a bit chilly for the pool. The beach was very wide and had beautiful sand!! We had some friends staying down the road at Treasure Island Resort, but they ended up coming over to "our" beach most of the time. They liked that ours did not have the natural sea oats and wild plants that most other condos seem to have - Sunset Vistas was just soft sand all the way to the ocean.

                                                                  No complaints here, we will be renting Rick and Charlotte's properties again in the future!

There are things we do not mention like the smart TV - it has a great picture regardless of using the smart feature or not. The new large and wall mount smart TV is in the Master BR and the Visio Large Screen is in the Living Room. Please contact us again and thank you for the recommendation, your experience and review. Sincerely, Rick and Charlotte

                                                                  Thank you James and Catherine - and that is the briefest (most brief) response ever. I am going to ad a little detail in that you were a three week stay and the four of you caught the weather just right in our top floor Gulf view condo. Also appreciate the excellent condition your left our condo - cleaners mentioned. We returned your refundable security damage deposit within one working day of your departure. Sincerely, Rick and Charlotte

                                                                  Beautiful and relaxing

                                                                  Alan E & Linda D H.

                                                                  This was the nicest condo we have ever rented. The location is awesome on Treasure Island and the view was amazing., Could sit on the deck or sit inside and just relax and enjoy. The condo itself is very nice. It was spotless when we arrived with everything we could possibly need plus some. The king bed is so comfortable I hated to get up in the morning, Rick made everything so easy. Sunset Vista is a great place too. Enjoyed the café right there and the pool and hot tub are wonderful. We hope to return there again. Would recommend it to all.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  I enjoyed my week at this property!

                                                                  Very comfortable unit, nice view of the beach and the Gulf of Mexico with a generous size balcony to enjoy the view. I like the king size bed in the master it was very comfortable!

                                                                  Plenty of towels etc. for the week long stay. It was nice to have a washer dryer as well. The main property itself is very well-maintained with a nice big pool and hot tub right on the beach

                                                                  I plan to come back again!

                                                                  Rick was great to work with and responded promptly to any questions I had. Thank you!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

A lot of the items you mention are standard in our condo - washer and dryer, king size bed, plenty of towels, Gulf View from the balcony - easy access parking and top floor and thank you for mentioning.

                                                                  Treasure Island is blessed with over 3 miles of white sandy Gulf Coast beaches. Yearlong activities include swimming, boating, fishing, golfing or just taking a long walk down the beach. We are part of the 13th largest metropolitan area in the United States and are only a 45 minute drive from Tampa International Airport, Busch Gardens and only a 2 hour drive from the Orlando area. Clearwater Airport is about 10 minutes closer than Tampa International but does not have volume of flights and carriers - but worth checking from your city. Treasure Island got its name after several property owners buried and then 'discovered' a couple of wooden chests on the beach. After claiming the chests were filled with treasure news of the discovery quickly spread and the name was born - Treasure Island! You know you will be in Treasure Island when you pass the famous Pirate's Welcome and Treasure Chest or cross one of the three bridges that bring you to a tropical world of lush flowers, palm trees, parrots, pelicans and dolphins. You can consider this your home away from home - and stretch your toes in the sand and wash your troubles away.
