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 Florida Central Gulf Coast

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!

As a returning guest at SSV, WOW! is usually what I say once we arrive at the condo, walk to the balcony and see the view. This was the first time renting from a private owner and it turned out to be a great idea.

WOW! was the first thought I had the minute we opened the front door to this condo. Right away you could tell that someone (Carol) loved this place, took care of it and wanted her guests to feel comfortable and right at home. From the pictures on the wall to the little decorations all around.

The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need. Utensils, pots, pans, baking dishes, different size plates, bowls, cups, glasses you name it. And they all matched!!

TV trays to eat one, beach towels, beach chairs, beach toys, lots of stuff to get you started. There was even a bottle of aloe in the MB bathroom in case you make the mistake of not using enough sunscreen.

The king size bed in the MB was so comfy and there were four different pillows to choose from.

I was a bit concerned about noise and privacy being on the 3rd floor so close to the pool and tiki bar but neither was an issue at all. My only complaint is that we had to leave this place.

Thank you Carol for making our stay at your condo our best trip so far. Your hospitality went above and beyond what we expected.

Clean, well appointed, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Really you couldn't ask for more. The property is well cared for and ideally situated. We were only there for three nights but walked to a different place for dinner each night. The beach was spectacular and the on-site staff helpful. Seems very family oriented - a plus for some, a negative for others, as there's a lot of activity and a noisy and very busy pool. The unit itself was fantastic, and the owner a delight to work with. I don't hesitate recommending!

Great beachfront getaway

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as advertised - clean, comfortable, and well furnished. Its direct-facing beachfront was perfect. The location was also good - close to John's Pass, grocery store, and restaurants. We'd come back!

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at Treasure Island and Sunset Vista. The condo was clean, very well maintained. The sun was shining, the water was beautiful. Two of the days we were there dolphins were sighted close to the beach, we could see them when they would rise above the water There were a few inconvenience the week we were there. The elevator closest to our condo was down the first day for maintenance, then the rest of the visit the staircase closest to us was closed for painting. The large pool was closed for three days while we were there for maintenance as well. With that have being said that is why it is a good place, just our bad luck for timing.

Owner's Response: Dear Valued Guest, I am glad you enjoyed your stay in spite of the maintenance that was being done to the resort during your stay. The first 2-3 weeks in December is usually the slowest time of year, and the management at Sunset Vistas tries to get as much done as possible during slow times. I hope you were able to use the pool at the Marriott next door that they set up for all of the guests staying at that time. The pool at Sunset Vistas has been resurfaced, has new lighting, it looks beautiful and should not need to close again for that length of time for many years so I hope to have you back again in the future!

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.

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.)
