Gorgeous sunsets over the beautiful southern Tampa Bay! Skyline view of St Petersburg and the SkywayBridge. Relax on the screened or open air lanai and listen to the waves crash against the sea wall just thirty feet away! Located in the very quiet upscale 'Little Harbor' section of Ruskin called Bahia Del Sol Condos, our 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo offers peaceful breezes and stunning views. Completely furnished with amenities galore! King-sized bed in master suite provides an ocean view, second bedroom has two twin beds that can convert to one king, and living room offers a queen sleeper sofa. Tastefully decorated. Two recently remodeled baths with tubs and showers. Oversized washer and dryer in unit. Fully equipped modern kitchen with new Bosch dishwasher. Living room has 42” flat screen TV, DVD player and stereo sound system. Free cable, free internet, free WiFi. The condo is fully non-smoking, inside and outside, and we regret that there are no pets allowed by renters. Parking spaces just outside your door. Beautiful heated pool (for guests only) overlooking the bay is close by. Tennis courts, playground, basketball court, marina, beach, 250-foot fishing pier, and oceanfront restaurant with tiki bar and live entertainment all within 2-5 minute walk. Beach rentals of kayaks, paddle boats, windsurfers, Hobie cats and wave runners. Nearby Antiqua Cove Marina offers deep sea charters for fishing or sightseeing. Close to Ruskin Drive-In Theater, EG Simmons State Park, and Cypress Golf Club. The condo is well situated within 45 minutes of the Tampa International Airport, downtown Tampa, St. Armand's Circle, Sarasota, St. Petersburg, St. Pete Beach, Bradenton, and Brandon; 90 minutes from Disney, Universal Studios and Sea World. Other nearby attractions include Busch Gardens/Adventure Island, Florida Aquarium, Lowry Park Zoo, Salvador Dali Museum, Manatee Viewing Center, Museum of Science, world class shopping plus much more! Great location, yet there are no high rise buildings in sight. Here is your secluded, quiet, end of cul-de-sac oceanfront condo, beautifully decorated, just waiting for you to walk in and enjoy. The fish actually jump right out of the water to greet you, the manatees lumber by, and the dolphins play right in your back yard. The beach beckons to you. Luckily, our condo association requires a minimum one month stay, because you’re not going to want to go back home too soon! Our unit has availability for 2017, Jan-March are already booked, and our first preference goes to those requesting multiple months, so if you want April and May or May and June of 2017 (you get the picture) please contact us ASAP. Consider it for next summer too! We have spent several Julys and Augusts at our condo, and it is no hotter there, right on the water, than it is back home inland in western Massachusetts! Consider a spring, summer or fall vacation in Florida, and plan now for 2017 to take a vacation in a perfect location!
We are both teachers, one of whom has retired, and other who is close to retiring, so it was time to invest in a beautiful waterfront property!
Sherry Branch purchased this condo in 2013
We absolutely LOVE our condo! We use it a great deal for ourselves, so we have outfitted it and decorated it with love. If you decide to rent it, please treat it with tender loving care! It is our very special home away from home.
Close to everything, yet secluded on a peninsula that juts out into Tampa Bay. There is nothing better than sipping a glass of wine on the balcony while the seabirds fly by, the dolphins slice through the water, the mullet fish propel themselves into the air, and the sunset paints amazing memories right before you eyes. What a perfect spot!
We set out to enjoy the time in the condo as a both a get away and the answer to an extended stay. Our house was being remodeled and the anticipated completion was 6 - 8 weeks. Well it did take all of the 8 weeks.
Both the owners (Sherry & Ben) and the caretaker (George) were very hospitable and accommodating with our unusual needs for the 8 week stay. The condo was immaculately clean, nicely furnished and provided a fabulous view of Tampa Bay and its glorious sunsets. There was the back lanai, complete with grill, that provided a great place to read, relax, sip wine or nap. The beach is a short walk, past the pool and the mini-mart, if one needed the quick pick-up of the forgotten items. About 8 - 10 minutes up the road you had access to several restaurants, banks and the local supermarkets.
It is the perfect setting for a getaway, whether a couple or small family. We would recommend this little taste of heaven to anyone looking for a great getaway. Three thumbs up!!!
Steps from the Tampa Bay with expansive western views of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge. Beautiful sunsets. Constant spectacular bird show from osprey, pelicans, and many other birds. End unit condo with unobstructed windows facing water views on back and side of condo. Porch can be enclosed with sliding glass doors during cool or rainy weather. Condo is comfortable but somewhat dated. Owner and manager were very responsive to requests, and minor problems that arose were fixed within 1-2 days. First-floor condo but 7 steps to enter. Small heated pool for condo guests only; public beach nearby but bring your own chairs, umbrellas, etc. E.G. Simmons County Park within 3 miles. Plenty of grocery stores, drugstores, etc. nearby. Great Cuban restaurant, Ybor Grill, a few miles north on Rt. 41 across from McDonalds. Also try the Fish House on Shell Point Rd. Outside seating and only open Thursday-Saturday, but great fish lightly fried. The Dog House, also on Shell Point Rd. has good hamburgers and hot dogs.
We just loved our 3-month vacation! Sherry's decorating taste is so beautiful--everything was new and matching and clean and clever. She didn't miss anything--every room was gorgeous. And the view on the bay was breath-taking.
When we would take day-trips, we would come back to the condo and think
"What a beautiful place! We didn't really need to go anywhere!" Plus, Sherry is a wonderful person, too!
Disney is 45 minutes away! Busch Gardens is 30 minutes away. Florida Aquarium is 20 minutes away. Viewing dozens of manatees just 10 minutes away. This is a great location....quiet cul de sac on the bay, but easy to get to lots of attractions.
