Overview

About the property

Fabulous Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Bella Vista is a two bedroom (queen & futon in the master and two double beds in the guest) and two bathroom condominium vacation rental at Sea Oats on Redington Shores Beach on the Gulf of Mexico. You can enjoy Bella Vista from that first moment in the morning when the sun rises over the Boca Ciega Bay until it sets directly outside your private balcony. Redington Shores is a warm and friendly beach town where you can expect soft sandy beaches, great fishing at the Long Pier and parks with amazing wildlife.

Redington Shores, along with the beach towns of Indian Shores, Indian Rocks, Madeira Beach and Treasure Island stretch from Clearwater Beach 15 minutes to the north and St. Pete's Beach 20 minutes to the south. Bella Vista is also just 20 miles west of Tampa which makes it central to the big city and beach life in the area. What a great location!!

There are many attractions for everyone: playground, parks, ice cream and candy stores for the kids; tasty restaurants ranging from five star restaurants to the casual local mom and pop diners; cultural attractions; professional sports and spring training; marinas and yacht clubs; nightclubs and dance clubs; and numerous golf courses. From the condominium you can walk to the mini mart, shops and restaurants and the Long Pier, which extends 1021 feet out into the Gulf, is right next door. Off this pier, even amateurs can catch grouper, mackerel, and pompano.

Splash in the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico and watch the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico horizon from your patio! Bella Vista is directly on the beach, and the condominium has a full direct view of the Gulf, the pool and the Long Pier!

There is so much to do, dip into the heated pool, fish, play tennis or volleyball right outside Bella Vista's door or... nothing to do but sit by the heated pool, walk barefoot in the white sand, or relax listening to the sound of the waves while watching for dolphins as they occasionally frolic in the Gulf. Whatever you choose to do, you will certainly be pleased with your choice of Bella Vista.

The general area offers 35 miles of white-sand beaches on 11 barrier islands along the Gulf of Mexico. To check out all the beaches, shopping and attractions, the Suncoast Trolley runs from St. Pete Beach to Clearwater Beach up and down Gulf Boulevard all day. There is a ride all day option for $4.00.

There is an onsite management company that maintains the building and units and we take particular pride in making our unit clean, comfortable and fully equipped. Wi-fi is provided at no extra charge!

Breathtaking sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico — truly a Bella Vista!

Why The Owner chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We chose to buy a condo at Sea Oats because the location is amazing!! It is a beach front condo on a beautifully clean white sand beach, near shops, restaurants, and the Long Pier where you can fish your day away. The condo itself is very spacious and because it is a corner unit is bright and airy. It has just been painted and updated- it looks GREAT!!

What makes this condo unique

Sea Oats at Redington Shores has a tennis court which other properties nearby do not. It also has the unique benefit of being right next to the Long Pier so you can spend your day catching fish. The unit has been renovated and updated with washer & dryer. The condo complex has been repainted this year.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Walked into the spacious condo with two bedrooms and was happily surprised as it was even nicer than the photographs. The plantation shutters are lovely and allowed us to have as much light as we wanted as it was June and super bright. The view out the main room was amazing- sand and gulf. The is a corner unit so there is plenty of sunshine. The bedrooms have super comfy beds and are nicely decorated and the kitchen had numerous pots and pans, plates and utensils so we could have a nice dinner at home if we chose. The pool was kept clean and had plenty of places to sit and there is a charcoal grill for those that want to BBQ while on vacation. The location is perfect and is near some great restaurants. Great shopping nearby. The front desk was super helpful in recommending places to visit while in the area.



I cannot even say one thing I would change about Sea Oats 101. I recommend it every chance I get.

Look no further-stay here!

  • 5 of 5

I usually stay at condos and use vrbo all the time. I booked this condo through the rental office located right on the building grounds. This condo is up one flight of stairs which was great so I di not have to wait for the elevator and I could park right by the stairs. The pool and beach were down that one flight of stairs. The beach was clean and not crowded- the sand was pretty awesome! The pool was centrally located and you could sit there and watch the gulf. The condo itself is spacious and clean, has a washer and dryer, anything you might need to make meals in the kitchen, a flat screen tv in each bedroom and in the family room. It is a corner unit so it is bright. There are lovely window treatments and the furniture is comfortable. My sister said it was the best nights rest she ever had in the guest room. Located near the Long Pier for great fishing and my husband could go off and have some fishing time while I sat reading at the beach. Perfect. I cannot wait to stay there again and have already booked for next year!

Relaxing Beach Front Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Very Lovely Condo and nicely updated. My brother, a recently retired Firefighter, stayed with us for a week and he said he hadn't slept that good in 20 years so the 2nd bedroom bed must be good! We stayed for 3 weeks in January and couldn't have asked for anything more as the Condo had everything we needed. On site check in was easy and they helped me with any questions I had. We walked on the beach and fished from the Long Pier but spent most of our time at the pool everyday just soaking up the sun and relaxing. Unfortunately the trip was bittersweet as my husband is ill and this was our last vacation together.

Owner's Response: I am glad you had the chance to enjoy the condo, relax by the pool and fish on the long pier. The beds are new so I am happy to hear your brother was well rested. Three weeks flies by, doesn't it? I also hope you enjoyed the restaurant recommendation. I am so terribly sorry to hear about your husband and wish you both strength and serenity.

Loved the location! Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice condo, clean and well appointed. We loved the location. The beach was beautiful, uncrowded, peaceful and quite relaxing. It was so nice not to have people camped out on top of us when relaxing on the beach, and I was definitely spoiled by the not so crowed atmosphere during our "peak season" stay. On-site check-in was easy and pleasant. Excellent restaurants within a minutes from the condo. The Salt Rock Grille was wonderful! The only complaint I had was, the air conditioning was not working efficiently when we arrived. However, the situation was addressed and resolved. (This owner was wonderful working with us regarding the inconvenience.) We normally stay in the PCB area, however it was WELL worth the extra two hours in the car to enjoy the Redington Shores area, and it was also fun going to a Tampa Bay Rays game while we were in the area. Thanks for allowing us to book our "last minute" reservation. We really needed and enjoyed our time at Sea Oats!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. So glad that the condo was able to exceed your expectations and that the air conditioning issue was handled to your satisfaction. We agree there are so many fun things to do and glad that you had the opportunity to experience the baseball game and one of our favorite restaurants! We hope that you come visit again soon. The off season is our personal favorite time to visit- May and October are just glorious!

Warm Accommodations & Great Weather

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week at Sea Oats Condo on Redington Shores. Condo balcony was right on the beach & daytime view & sunsets were spectacular!

Condo layout was great, allowing for ocean breeze throughout, quiet and privacy. Bedrooms are totally separate from living area and from eachother. Washer & Dryer were a plus. Didn't use beach chairs as they were in poor condition. We rented chairs and umbrella from a place that delivered - reasonable. Office staff was helpful in that regard, and they were very accommodating. Well equipped kitchen so we did lots of cooking. Publix is close by.

We recommend Salt Rock Grill for a great meal & experience. Would definitely return.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your time and had the opportunity to see those spectacular sunsets on the beach! Beach chairs are not provided, so the ones left in the condo that you mention must be from a previous guest. There are many restaurants in the area and Salt Rock is one of our favorites as well! Sounds like your experience was a good one and we hope to have you back.

A little bit of heaven in Central FL

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from a two week vacation in your beautiful condo. I was there in January of 2013 for two weeks and returned again this year. I truly appreciate all of the improvements particularly the grab rails in the showers that I mentioned last year. Your attention to even the smallest detail is evident. The unit was immaculate and waiting for us. Everything we could possibly need was there. I did purchase a new iron, marked it and left if for you. The other one was a ittle tired. I also left a nice beach chair with attached umbrella. Enjoy. I will use them when I return next year. We did not have the best weather FL had to offer and we even had a little tornado to add to our excitement but everything was wonderful, comfortable and felt like home. If you would like to contact me at buffysmom@charter.net there is more info Iwould like to share. Thanks for sharing your piece of heaven. No snow for two weeks was heaven earth.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the unit!! We try to update it each time we visit, which is never often enough, Unfortunately, not every guest is as thoughtful as you and many times the items we purchased and leave are no longer there when we return. Thank you for your thoughtfulness! Hope you return again soon and the weather is better for you- May and September are beautiful!

Truly a Bella Vista

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful two week stay in your lovely unit. It was beautiful and had all the comforts of home with nightly show of that spectacular sunset. We truly enjoyed our stay and found the unit perfect and everyone a pleasure to deal with. If I were to make any suggestion it would be to add grab bars to the showers to make things safer for those of us who are a little wobbly on our feet and to put some kind of Levelor type blind in the sliding door for late afternoon vs the white curtains that don't look clean and get very messy. I think a blind would be the perfect solution to redirect the sun from the room and TV and allow us to see the view. The curtain is a minor item but I think it would enhance the beauty of what is already a beautiful unit. The curtain is the only think that is not up to the standard of the unit. Thanks for sharing your unit with us and we look forward to returning. Will come a little later than January next time and hope for a little warmer weather. Thanks again. We had a blast.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review! I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and thought the unit beautiful. I also thank you for your input on the shower grab bars. I think it is a great idea and will have them installed. When you come to visit again- the grab bars will be there! Thanks for the great input!
