Beautiful secluded pool/spa area and communal party room minutes from our door.
The Palma del Mar complex offers beautiful walking paths and well groomed grounds. The pool is beautifully situated in the center of the grounds facing the Boca Ciega Bay. We are completely private yet close enough to get to any restaurants or entertainment you might want. The drive to St. Petersburg Beach is less than 10minutes, easy enough to enjoy a day sunbathing or visit one of the many restaurants/bars on the strip. The historic Loews Don Cesar is a mere 5 minute drive by car.
Our condo is a corner unit which allows for extra sunlight to shine in, plus you can enjoy that extra bit of privacy while on the balcony. Day or night you will enjoy the beautiful view of the Boca CIega Bay. The pool and communal party room are a 2 minute walk away, again close yet far enough away that you will not be disturbed at all.
This condo lived up to our expectations in almost every way. The view from the patio was gorgeous - looked just like the pictures. We even had a call from the owner the first day arrived to be sure everything was all right. There were a few minor problems - one was that I thought that the washing machine and dryer were located in the unit itself. While they were there they were apartment sized and the dryer really did not dry even a very small load. Also they had some sort of small convection which took us several days to figure out how to use. I would suggest that the owners add some sort of directions as to how to use. Once we figured it out we were ok but a toaster oven might have been better. I would still recommend this rental - it was reasonably priced, the view was great and the whole complex was very nice.
We were very disappointed with the property. The owners were asking us to rebook for the next year before we even arrived at the property. When we said we would like a week there before deciding, they booked someone else in less than that time. We ended up being glad they did!
We were inundated with with 2 kinds of ants in the kitchen ---swarming counters and inside cupboards. They did call an exterminator but we had to do the cleaning up of dead ants and they would not refund part of the rental amount for our inconvenience in not being able to use the kitchen for many days and the time spent cleaning on our vacation.
The washer and dryer were terrible--especially the dryer. It took forever to dry small loads on the highest setting which made all of our clothes filled with wrinkles. When we inquired if the dryer vent might be blocked the owners told us to pay for the washers and dryers in the community laundry area.
They did not have a microwave or toaster.
The DVD player was about 4 by 6 inches which made it impossible for us to comfortably watch a movie.
The closets were filled with items (bikes, suitcases, clothes) belonging to the owners which left little space for our things.
The entire unit needs to be updated.
I would not recommend this rental.
