Overview

Casa del Mar Condo Rental Photos and Description

Watch the dolphins, birds, & boats go by from 2 bedroom, 2 bath bay front villa

Enjoy your beautiful bay front view in comfort. The Pelican’s Cove is a fantastic end-unit villa with the best views overlooking Boca Ciega bay! So close to world famous beaches: Fort DeSoto, Pass-A-Grille and St. Pete Beach are all a short distance from home! This bright, clean villa boasts new laminate flooring (2015), keyless entry, remodeled kitchen (June 2013) with Quartz countertops, and all new, comfortable furnishings. High speed and WiFi internet as well as unlimited long distance calling to US and Canada are included. The Boardwalk Pasta and Seafood restaurant (a local favorite!), the Tokyo Bay Japanese Restaurant, and Subway are a short walk down the road. We also supply a FL toll transponder as an added convenience that works on the three tolls surrounding Isla del Sol!

Walk a few steps from your covered parking spot to the front door of your villa on the same level. Outdoor stairs lead you down to a beautiful, ground level pool and the bike room. There's also convenient elevator access to get down to the ground floor if desired.

Interested in more than fantastic beaches and relaxing by the pool that gets sun all day? Then head to downtown to St. Petersburg, only 15 minutes away, for lively dining, museums, galleries, shopping, professional sports and more! You are only 30 minutes to Tampa: International airports, professional sports, fine dining and more! And it should go without saying that challenging golf courses are what this area is known for! If you are a golfer, the private Yacht and Country Club down the street offers summer guest memberships May - September. We can provide you with basic info if you're interested in this. Clearwater and Sarasota are also about a 40 minute drive and Orlando, Disney World, or Busch Gardens make a great day trip!

We know there are quite a few options to stay on our wonderful island, Isla del Sol, but there are not many with the prime location, serene views, and owners who take pride in their villa and have spent much time and resources making it as comfortable and convenient as possible for our guests. We want The Pelican’s Cove to be your home away from home. We look forward to having you!.

Here's a detailed description of the villa:

Master Bedroom: Brand new king size Simmons pillow top mattress, ample storage, 32” HDTV, cable, ceiling light and fan, walk-in closet, private Master Bath, stunning northern water views.

2nd Bedroom: 2 twin beds, 32” HDTV, cable, access to balcony, ceiling light and fan, over-sized windows with breathtaking west/northwest view of the bay.

Bathrooms: 2 full baths with tubs and overhead showers. New vanities, mirrors, paint and accessories.

Kitchen: Extensively remodeled in June 2013 with plenty of cabinetry and Quartz countertops. New microwave, dishwasher, new oven/range, and refrigerator. Renovation included the partial removal of a wall to fully enjoy bay views even from the kitchen.

Dining Area: Well-lit area with pass-through to kitchen. 4-person dining table and chairs. There are additional folding chairs located in the balcony closet if there is a need for additional seating.

Living Room: Gorgeous views! 42” HDTV with Blu Ray DVD player and HD cable. Comfortable, full-size convertible couch that sleeps 2.

Balcony and outdoor features: Watch the dolphins, pelicans, and the passing boats from the balcony or from the lovely shore grounds and community pier. Or check on your family members down by the pool off to your left. The sunsets never cease to amaze and you have a front row seat to enjoy the fireworks displays!

Amenities: New washing machine and dryer in the unit. Air Conditioning. Plenty of new linens & towels provided. Same level parking.

Pool & hot tub: Shared hot tub & heated pool on the lovely grounds overlooking the bay. The Jacuzzi offers an Infinity pool experience!

Entertainment: Fishing is common among the area's residents and guests. Pull on your waders and grab your pole or net and fish right in your backyard. Your family and friends will be 50 feet behind you, cheering you on from the balcony. Or grab your pole and tackle box and cast away from the community's fishing pier.

A few books and games will be waiting for you in your villa, but you can also check out the puzzles and entertainment going on in the association's community area. Casa Del Mar 3 residents and guests are very welcoming and social!

Communications: Telephone and digital answering machine to record your own personal greeting. Unlimited calling to U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico, wireless internet, and broadband access are included.

Please contact us with any questions you may have about the villa or the surrounding areas

Why Jenny Cincotta chose St Petersburg

This lovely condo/villa has been affectionately named 'Pelican's Cove' by its owners (a mother, son, daughter and son-in-law) because these beautiful birds seem to love hanging out in the waters right below our balcony! We live and work in the Chicago area where the weather is generally less than ideal so many of our vacations were spent along the gulf coast of Florida. It turned out that the St Petersburg area became our favorite destination; Julie actually met her husband there and their beautiful wedding took place at the Don CeSar hotel!

We have remodeled and totally refurbished our unit with the comfort and happiness of our guests in mind. We want you to spend your 'best vacation ever' at the Pelican's Cove and want to make sure that you love our villa so much that you reserve your time with us year after year! My family and I look forward to welcoming you to this wonderful vacation retreat and invite you to contact us with any questions that you may have. Hope to hear from you soon! Nick, Jenny, Mark, and Julie

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with the views from the first time we saw the property. Relax on the balcony, sofa, any of the beds and enjoy the peaceful water views and watching the boats and sea birds. Walk along the shore at low tide and around the quiet golf club community.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Toller Urlaub! Wir waren 3 Wochen zu viert in dieser wunderschönen, ruhigen Anlage zu Gast und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Wohnung ist sehr gepflegt, sauber und bietet neben einer geschmackvollen Einrichtung auch einen tollen Außenbereich. Der Blick vom Balkon ist traumhaft schön. Der Gemeinschaftspool ist wirklich ein Traum und wurde fast täglich mehrmals genutzt. Die Abwicklung mit den Vermietern war sehr freundlich und unkompliziert. Wir können diese schöne Wohnung jeden empfehlen, sie zu genießen. Nachdem für uns der Alltag wieder da ist, denken wir sehr gerne an diese tolle Zeit zurück.

Beautiful Spot

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the condo very much. Beautiful area, quiet & close to everything. We especially enjoyed the array of wildlife in the ocean view from our balcony. The condo was very well stocked with everything we needed. Thank you

A wonderful month in this lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful month in this lovely condo in 2015 and are already looking forward to our return in 2016. The location is ideal—it is quiet and private, has great views, and is close to the beaches in Pass-A-Grille and Fort De Soto Park, a variety of great restaurants, shopping, and much more.

The decor, furnishings, maintenance, cleaning, towels and linens, and a kitchen stocked with a variety of pots, pans, and utensils all reflect the desire of the owners (Jenny and her family) to ensure a truly pleasurable experience.

The view of Boca Ciega Bay is particularly enjoyable. It affords the opportunity to spend hours calmly watching the dolphins and sailboats pass just yards away, the beautiful sunsets, and just taking in the peaceful surroundings.

Jenny is a pleasure to work with and talking with her reveals how committed the owners are to providing the setting for a relaxing and stress-free vacation. We have vacationed in several other properties at Isla, and this is clearly a “keeper.”

A wonderful apartment; a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The corner apartment, with its great water views from the bedrooms and the living room was so well equipped it was like moving into one's own home; from the bed rooms to the living room to the bathrooms to the kitchen, every thing one needed was provided. The near-by reserved parking space added to the convenience of all. The apartment was immaculate upon my arrival and the information provided by the owners was complete. In sum, this apartment must be one of the best deals is Isla del Sol, and I envy those who will enjoy it.

Wonderful views and friendly neighbours.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful month at Pelican Cove. Jenny and Nick were both great to work with. We have rented many properties through VRBO/Home Away and I would have to say they were by far the quickest to respond to any questions. The condo itself has a great view of Boca Ciega and is very quiet for sleeping. It is one of the best stocked properties I have ever stayed at - from the Sun Pass Transponder to q-tips to cooking oil. The other residents of the complex were so welcoming and friendly - that is not always the case. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no problem recommending this property to other vacationers.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an enjoyable vacation at this property that we have already re-booked for 2015! The condo was exactly as described (gorgeous) and came fully stocked with everything you might need - from toiletries to cooking utensils to linens . The wifi was an important perk because we used it daily to find local activities and attractions. The condo development itself was immaculately maintained: the pool was sparkling, and the location itself was perfect for enjoying all of St Pete's restaurants and of course the beach. Most importantly, Jenny and Nick were always a pleasure to deal with. This was our first VRBO experience and they were extremely helpful. Their prompt replies were one of the reasons we selected this property - it was completely stress free from beginning to end.

Best we ever had !!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best condo we ever had in Florida. It is very well equiped, all is very new, the beds are very comfortable, it was a very clean condo with very nice furniture.

The area is wonderful and the condo has the best view from all rooms.

Nothing is better than a breakfast on the balcony of this condo with a view over the bay watching the dolphins.

And the best of all .... the owner and his mother !!!

They help us with every question we had ... and we can write and talk in German.

Thank you again Nick and Jenny
