Waterfront First Floor Condo-Totally updated!!! Guaranteed to see Dolphins!

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 1 - 30 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Wake up in the morning to views of dolphins and tropical birds. This first floor, 2 bedroom condo, is 50 feet from the waters of Boca Ciega Bay, and has direct views of the water from the living room, dining room and master bedroom. You can eat dinner in a new beautifully decorated dining room and after dinner relax on your patio while watching the sailboats and yachts pass by. When you get tired of sitting, you can take a short walk along the water to the pool and spa overlooking the bay for a refreshing swim. The pool is chilled in the summer and heated in the winter to a perfect temperature that everyone enjoys. In the evening take the beach chairs to the private sandy beach and watch the gorgeous sunsets. Settle in for the night in the comfort of your living room watching a movie on a 42 inch flat screen HD television.

This is a beautiful condo for a couple or a family, with as little, or as much as you choose to do. La Puerta Del Sol is an immaculately landscaped, quiet community on Isla Del Sol. It is just minutes away from some of the award winning gulf beaches like St. Pete Beach and Fort De Sota Park. There are numerous waterside casual and fine dining restaurants with many offering a variety of entertainment for all ages. If shopping is your pleasure it is a short 20 minute drive to John’s Pass or the mall. On your return a reserved parking space awaits you just steps away from the condo entrance. Just 15 minutes away, the historical city of St. Petersburg has many museums, a trolley ride, shops, movie theaters, an aquarium, and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays major league baseball team. Downtown Tampa is only 30 minutes away with more to offer, including Busch Gardens. Walt Disney World and Orlando’s numerous attractions are only a 90 minute drive. Golfing, parasailing, jet skiing, biking, tennis and just plain relaxing is all in abundance in this area!

If you are flying in, the Tampa and St. Petersburg airports are within 30 minutes.

Why Linda chose Isla del Sol

This area has so much to do yet is very secluded and relaxing when you are in the La Puerta community

What makes this condo unique

I enjoy sitting in the living room with a full view of the water watching the dolphins and birds.

The Sweet Life

  • 5 of 5

What a joy to watch the dolphins swimming right outside the condo windows. The condo is centrally located to great eateries and very close to the beaches. The floorplan is very nice with a view to the outside from the kitchen, living room, dining area and master bedroom. There are two bedrooms that have been recently updated and new furniture added within the past year. Ground floor access makes it easy for those with walking difficulty. The community pool, hot tub and some beach availability at low tide provides diverse entertainment for young and old. Within a short walk, are several eateries, an ice cream/coffee shop, dentist, dry cleaners, hair styling salon, and women's dress shop. A golf course is nearby for those interested in the sport. St Pete beach is a short 3-4 minute drive away. Grocery and drug stores are a short drive as well. For the fisherman, you can fish right outside the condo, or watch some locals casting and reeling in their catch. Can't go wrong with this condo!

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

Convenient to restaurants, groceries, drug stores, shops and beaches. Beautiful views with opportunities to see dolphins playing outside the sliding glass doors. The floor plan is great with a view of the water from the living room and the master bedroom. Very clean accommodations and well light location at night. The lighted gazebo near the water and the large pool are nice amenities to enjoy.

Best place and best host EVER!

  • 5 of 5

Linda made the process super easy. I loved her place. She was like a mom to me.

Sunsets and sunrises are beautiful from the livingroom and bedroom. Coming home from work everyday to this place was a delight. It was energizing going to the pool every afternoon and wetting my feet in the ocean EVERY AFTERNOON!!! Looking forward to coming back!!!
