Couldn't ask for more

The apartment was perfect, decorated with lots of joy and fun, really comfortable, perfectly convenient to grocery shopping and all kinds of restaurants, not to mention the beach and a plethora of Tiki bars. I went there to do some writing and spent a lot of time on the balcony with the lovely view of the shoreline. The only small considerations are that you have to go to the beach to see the sunset, the noise from the road can be intrusive sometimes, and if you're cooking in the apartment you have to provide everything like oil, S&P, any spices, baggies, etc. Just be forewarned. Fortunately there's a Publix right across the road.

Great Stay at 505 !!

  • 5 of 5

The Gulf Strand Resort was extremely convenient and well-equipped with everything needed to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. Room 505 was immaculately cleaned when we arrived and as we departed we left a generous tip to thank the cleaning crew for their attention to detail. It was well supplied with coolers, beach toys, and extra beach towels - VERY handy! Also in-room laundry was extremely appreciated in order to pack light for the week. We rented the yellow Cabanas on the beach every day and it was a pleasure dealing with Sammy and Gus and their team ready to set us up for a comfortable day at the beach. The Tiki bar next door is also conveniently located off beach access. We literally spent the entire week in want of nothing more - this place has it all. Definitely 5 stars on this trip for us !! Thanks again

When we walked in we instantly smiled; we were in paradise and our eyes went right to the great view of the GULF OF MEXICO. The condo was comfortable and quite large.. larger than most one bedrooms we have stayed in. Plus, having two baths was the BEST!! The bed was big and comfy. No sharing on vacation was a treat. Keyless entry was great to not worry about carrying keys on the beach. We rented a car but we did NOT even need one. I want to buy this place my only wish is that we woudl have stayed longer. We will be back.

August 2016 Vacation

  • 3 of 5

Enjoyed our vacation at St Petersburg. The beaches were great and the water was warm. The condo location was perfect to the beach, about 1 minute walk. The many restaurants close by and grocery store across the street was a plus.

I am only give the condo 3 stars because the condo was not that clean. The walls and baseboards were really dirty. The floor felt dirty too. The bed was not that comfortable - felt old and warn. Some blinds were broken and the curtains didn't fit the windows. We also had tiny ants in the kitchen. Overall, I just think the condo needs to be updated and get a deep cleaning.

August Vacation

  • 3 of 5

First time visiting St. Petersburg. Enjoyed the beautiful beaches and warm water!

The condo location was great! About 1 minute walk to the beach! The condo itself was nice. Nice views off the deck. Restaurants and stores close by.

I'm only giving the condo 3 stars because I felt the condo could have been cleaner. The walls and base boards were pretty dirty. The floor felt dirty too. The bed was not that comfortable. Some blinds broken. Curtains didn't fit Windows. I was also disappointed that there was no small shower soap provided or laundry soap. First condo I have rented that didn't have these items. Overall, not a bad place. Just needs some deep cleaning.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were very pleased with this place. It was convenient to grocery store, restaurants and a few shops. The trolley stop was in the front door if you need to go other places or a cheap rental car across the street.

Explore pristine Florida beaches in the St. Petersburg area, home to Madeira Beach and Treasure Island. Pick from houses, condos and cottages, and get ready to enjoy sugar white sand and warm breezes. Vacations in the St. Petersburg area offer abundant outdoor recreation – on and off the water – a lively arts scene, and award-winning restaurants.

Madeira Beach, located west of St. Petersburg is home to John's Pass Village and Boardwalk, a fun attraction for all ages. John's Pass, or the Pass to locals, offers top dining and nightlife options, family-friendly attractions, shopping and water sports. While walking the 1,100-foot boardwalk, see alligators at The Alligator Attraction and dolphins playing in the Gulf's waters. Walk into dozens of unique shops that sell everything from beachwear to shells to find the perfect souvenir or gift.

Madeira Beach's restaurants welcome family and friends to try the fresh local flavor. Many top-rated restaurants at the Pass feature entertainment, specials and events as well. The Seafood Festival at John's Pass – held annually in October – hosts more than 100,000 guests to celebrate food, music, and arts and crafts.

Water lovers can parasail, rent jet skis or deep-sea fish to complete their beach vacation. John's Pass is also a popular fishing destination and brings in more grouper than any other place in Florida. Visitors can also relax while birdwatching, boating and canoeing, all within easy access of their vacation rental.

Treasure Island – adjacent to St. Petersburg – is another favorite beach town in Florida. Swim, snorkel, fish, parasail and shell at this hot spot, which was named from an early hotel owner who buried and discovered treasure chests on the beach.

Known as a secret spot for sunsets, Treasure Island's 3 miles of beaches serve as the perfect place to watch the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico with someone special. Treasure Island also offers guests fun-filled attractions and things to do, paired with restaurants serving everything from breakfast to fresh seafood dinners.

Other popular attractions in the St. Petersburg area include the award-winning Salvador Dali Museum and Fort De Soto Park, the largest park within the Pinellas County Park System, measuring more than 1,100 acres.
