About Carolyn Burquette

I've been buying and selling Real Estate Rental Properties since 1995 beginning on Clearwater Beach. After being in Treasure Island, FL I decided this was the perfect place to own a vacation rental because of it's white sandy beach and location to the many attractions, including Downtown St Petersburg and ease of getting to the interstate. I've even made Treasure Island my home!

Carolyn Burquette purchased this condo in 2006

Why Carolyn Burquette chose Treasure Island

When I discovered there was a brand new Gulf front complex being built on Treasure Island Beach, I wanted to buy a unit. At the time, buying pre-contruction allowed a significant reduction in price so I bought one and watched as it grew into one of the most beautiful properties on the beach. Being an original owner has allowed me to watch how popular and family friendly Sunset Vista Condos has become over the years.

What makes this condo unique

Location is close to literally everything! There is an ice cream shop right next door, and a convenience store right across the street. Johns Pass is right over the bridge with shops, restaurants and water activities. There are many restaurants within walking distance.The best part is watching the Sunset every night right from your balcony!

Gorgeous condo, beautifully we'll kept resort

  • 5 of 5

First time vacationers to Sunset Vistas (306W). Absolutely highly impressed. Carolyn was super to work with arranging the reservation via VRBO. Always quick to respond to any questions. Condo was so much more than the pictures. PERFECT location & stunning views from entire unit. We were happily surprised there's even a sound matching on the nightstand in the master. The entire condo is well equiped including beach toys, chairs & beach towels. Kitchen items galore (just could use a set of measuring cups). Staff at this property were very friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had all our needs met (we didn't have hardly any). They were always busy cleaning, straightening pool furniture & just doing a great job overall keeping the property looking top notch. A fun & yummy place for dinner is Conch Republic Bar & Grill in North Redington Beach (a short 10 minute drive straight north).We DEFINITELY recommend Sunset Vistas to future vacationers!!

Owner's Response: Dear Valued Guest, Wow! Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a fabulous review! I am very pleased about your positive experience in our Condo! We strive to have each guest have the same experience your family had, and it's so nice to know that our efforts are providing that! Upon your request, I have a new set of measuring cups and spoons in the kitchen. (Thank you for letting us know that the set I had in there are no longer there). It was a pleasure having your family stay at our condo, and I really appreciate the picture you sent of your family on the balcony! Hopefully we will see you again in near future.

Best location on Treasure Island!!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about location. We watched the most stunning sunsets every night from our balcony. Down the elevator and a few step later , you are on the beach. Very well decorated and appointed place. All you need is food and clothes and you are set for the week. This is my third trip to the gulf side and this was a gem to find. Carolyn was awesome to work with and kept us informed at all times. The whole property is very well maintained and the staff is so friendly . The beach, the pool, the spa and the tiki bar were our daily routine. There are several bars and restaurants within three or four blocks and of course , ice cream right next door . Don't miss the fantastic boardwalk as well. We will be back next year. Thanks for the great week!!

Fantastic Condo and Management

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed the first week of October and found the condo immaculate, stocked with towels, toiletries, kitchen sundries, and modestly stated in case my wife ever reads this review, as clean as home. The unit's living room is bigger in person than it appears in the posted pictures. The beds and furniture were like new in comfort and appearance. The condo provides beach towels and "sitting," beach chairs. You should want for nothing.

Relative to the complex it was at about a little more than half capacity during our time judging from the number of cars in the parking lots and about half of other renters were families with children. Everyone was very well behaved and polite. Looking south from our beach one will be pleased with the proximity to the surf. As you venture south the beaches become wider and wider to the extent that walking to the surf would be burdensome. The well-kept common areas were always clean and staff were plentiful and pleasant. The decor is top notch most particularly in the courtyard. In short and after seeing the other closely located complexes I would not have traded places.

We had a couple minor hiccups with noise (i.e. conversation,) in the later evening and after the 10:00 p.m. curfew outside the gulf front unit (we like to retire with windows open to enjoy the surf,) and after a couple e-mails to Carol the matter was handled quickly, professionally, and to everyone's satisfaction. The entire process from booking to check-out and communications in between shows that value in dealing with experienced and caring agents such as Carol.

I would strongly recommend this experience to anyone who asked. Have a good vacation.

Great unit with a view

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at SSV and can't say enough good things about the condo and the owner. The condo was clean and well stocked with the basics including beach towels, beach umbrella, beach chairs and sand toys. The view from the balcony is amazing for watching the sunset and it was a very short walk to the beach. The property has two pools and our son loved having the option to go between the beach and splash pad which was about 1ft 1/2 at it's deepest. We found the condo to be the perfect size for 4 adults and a toddler and the owner was kind enough to have a playpen and booster chair setup in the unit upon our arrival for no extra charge. Communication with the owner was great! She responded promptly to all my questions and requests. We definitely plan on renting this unit for future trips to the area!

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at Carol's condo in Sunset Vistas and everything was perfect! We planned our 30th Wedding Anniversary trip earlier this year (not expecting Irma to arrive the week before us!). Carol was wonderful keeping us up to date and we were very lucky that it was a go!! When we arrived we were welcomed with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a card for our anniversary!! Such a kind gesture and wonderful start to our trip! The condo is clean, beautifully decorated, very well taken care of and the ocean front view is perfect. We saw the most beautiful sunsets right from the balcony. Carol was very helpful and so easy to work with. We will definitely be back!!

Treasure Island is home for famous John's Pass, (within walking distance). There you will find great restaurants, shopping, bars, water sport rentals, fishing, boat rentals etc., along the waterfront boardwalk. Take the day and visit Tampa, (approx. 45 minute drive) and see the Tampa Aquarium, Busch Gardens Amusement Park, Adventure Island Water Park, or the Lowery Park Zoo. Visit Orlando, and go to Disney World, Universal Studios, or Sea World which is (approx. 1.5 hour drive). Another must see and experience is Beach Dr. in Downtown St Petersburg! This area has quickly turned into museum, restaurant, shopping and bar heaven! (approx. 15 min drive.) Sports fans can experience the Tropicana Field for Baseball, or Raymond James Stadium for Football or the St Pete Times Forum for Hockey.
