Beautiful Condo in a Wonderful Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Jeff and Claudia for a wonderful vacation. We had kind of planned last minute and loved the pool (we have a 11 year old) and the idea of a private beach. We reached late night on Dec 22 after driving almost 16 hrs (traffic). We loved the fact that everything was in place when we got there. This is in a gated community and Jeff was awake at night to buzz us in. The condo was well stocked with almost everything one could think of. We were treated to a spectacular sunset, the pool was great and the people even better. Made some good friendships, folks are so welcoming. Would highly recommend this location for a relaxed beach vacation in Beautiful St Pete area.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo the whole month of October. We loved our stay. Thank you Jeff and Claudia.

The condo is grate with leather furniture in the living room, big flat screen TVs in both living room and bedroom. The kitchen is very well equipped with nice appliances and granite counter tops. The bathroom is newly upgraded and very nice, we loved the shower. The bedroom has a king size bed and a walk in closet, all very nice. The condo is very well equipped, has everything you possible need. The view from the balcony is to die for. The pool area is right in front of the condo, we loved the pool.

If we had some questions we just texted Jeff and he responded right away with helpful answers.

We were a little worried about the location of the condo, we are used to stay at St. Pete Beach but it all turned out grate. Our friends and us had four units rented in the same building (we are all going to stay there next year, we all loved it) and we all had rental cars so there was always some one willing to drive if we vent to a restaurant or a bar.

In whole a grate vacation. Looking forward to next years stay at Bermuda Bay.

Outstanding, best place in the complex and on VRBO

  • 5 of 5

I have rented many places through VRBO, and this was the best of them all. From the great laid back owner - Jeff, to the perfect accommodations, to the unbelievable view from your front deck of the sunset into the water...everything was a 5 out of 5! Two (2) great TVs, both big HD flat screens. Super fast wifi. Great furniture, great AC, perfect king pillow-top bed and pillows! Jeff was a simple text away for anything needed...I was there a month and never needed anything. Jeff also has a great Kayak for rent, the best one in the complex. There are many places to rent at this complex, but mine was the envy of everyone...Thank you Jeff...Outstanding place Guy

Perfect location and the view was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved it here. Jeff's condo is overlooking the pool and the water. It was so nice because we traveled with 2 toddlers so being front and center was important to us. There are stairs right off of the deck and as you can see from the pictures the pool is right there. We were so close that if we forgot something we didn't have to go far to get it. The beach is just beyond the pool. While it is not the gulf, it is still a nice little private beach that you can walk around on and see hermit crabs and other creatures when the tide is out. My son loved it. The sunset is amazing from the deck/beach and we even saw some dolphins in the bay.

There is also a second pool in the complex that has a nice, new playground that my son loved playing on. And a nature trail next door that was nice to walk through, but it doesn't loop back around so if you take it just turn back around when you are ready to go back. We ended up with a lot longer walk than we wanted to and 2 unhappy toddlers. :)

The condo was just the perfect size for us as well. It was well equipped and we fit right in like it was home. The kitchen is newly upgraded and very nice. My two year old is still asking to go back to Florida to our "huge house". :)

Even though the house isn't located directly on the gulf, it is very close to some of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. Pass A Grille beach and Ft Desoto North Beach were so nice and were only about a 10 minute drive.

Jeff was also great and any questions I had he answered within minutes through email.

We will definitely keep this place in mind the next time we are headed back here.

Small hidden Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This unit isn't on a commercial beach. It is a private beach that was perfect for us. We felt safe and secure inside the complex. Everybody was friendly and helpful with information regarding entertainment and restaurants.

This unit was clean and had an updated kitchen. Big master bedroom with a walk in closet. The view from the balcony was beautiful, probably one of the best in the complex. There is a washer and dryer in the condo, that was a big plus for us and saved a lot of money.

We had a small issue with the water heater and Jeff was quick to get it resolved. He sent Tim over to fix it. It was fixed in a timely manner.

We didn't see any dolphins but during low tide we found a lot of large shells.

The price we paid was well worth it. We are planning a May trip and will stay here again.

Great deal, great Condo and location.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jeff, the first night I stayed at the condo I watched the sunset from the deck. It was amazing. Its a great location, close to alot of beaches, eatting spots and close access to the highway. Very quite and private area. Good size condo with a great kitchen. For the location, private beach, water front, 2 bedrooms, living room and a kitchen, it was a awesome deal! So much cheaper than a 1 room hotel room. Can't wait to go back again next year!
