About Michael Paul Gimness

We are a Florida resident family who love this property. When we first bought it, we thought to ourselves, 'this is the kind of place where we would love to vacation!' It has absolutely everything and meets the extremely diverse needs of our family and extended family - from the very young to the very experienced. We find Mansions to be the perfect blend of ocean vistas and the dynamic active lifestyle.

Michael Paul Gimness purchased this condo in 2012

Why Michael Paul Gimness chose Sunset Beach

From the 11th floor, this residence delivers unparalleled panoramic views from West South and East. Stunning would be an understatement. And yet, the Mansions by the Sea complex is so much more. Amenities are as extensive and diverse as any complex in the Tampa Bay area. Nature walk, board walk, fishing, boating, fitness, they are all part of a uniquely and deeply satisfying vacation experience that will want you coming back for more. Those who have enjoyed the 'Mansions Experience' have consistently become repeat guests.

What makes this condo unique

The living room views offer an indescribable study in contrasts of ocean beauty. The Blind Pass waterway joins the Gulf of Mexico with the intracoastal waterway to deliver panoramic island vistas. To the south lies Tampa Bay and beyond, Anna Marie Island and points south of Tampa Bay. This residence delivers a magnificent geography lesson of Tampa Bay and in the process, offers the awe, power and beauty of the Gulf of Mexico. On a clear day, guests can see clearly for more than 25 miles the active waterfront and marine life that is Tampa Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.

Overall a beautiful site with unbelievable views

  • 4 of 5

The mirrored atmosphere makes for the ability to see behind and enjoy the panoramic view.

A bit of clutter in the closets with numerous items from ? old tenants or owner with ?? of their usability,

Upgrades for utensils and non stick pots would make for better food preparation,

Comfortable beds and chairs and sofas//

Combo of shower head with the hand held would be an upgrade as well as safety bars in the showers.

Very easy to get in and out/ Tight security was appreciated/

Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed everything the condo and amenities had to offer. The condo unit itself was beautifully decorated and had amazing views from the floor to ceiling windows. The wraparound balcony was expansive and had spectacular views of the ocean and intercostal waterways.

The condo has everything you ever need while on vacation. It made us feel right at home.

The pool area was always quiet and we never had a problem getting lounge chairs any time of day. The tennis courts were well kept and were never crowded.

Paul and Solange were great to deal with. Solange personally showed us around the condo when we arrived which was a nice touch.

We would surely return to the condo next time we are in Florida.

We have been coming to St. Pete Beach, FL since 2007 and are very familiar with the area, but this has truly been our best vacation rental thus far!! The photos cannot transmit the authentic beauty of this lovely corner unit and its spectacular panoramic views of the Gulf. This place is perfect whether it’s a family vacation, a honeymoon or just a seclusion and/or relaxation. Sunsets are breathtaking especially when you watch them from the balcony with a glass of good red wine and exquisite dinner in the sound of waves. No restaurant in the area can beat these views and comfort! Master Bedroom has private access to the balcony with a gorgeous view of the beach and nightlights of the private houses along the Sunset Beach to the North made an impression of “Little Italy”. Views from the 2nd Bedroom at night reminded us of “Mini Chicago Skyline”. It was absolutely amazing to have “Beach View”, “Little Italy” and “Mini Chicago Skyline” all in one place from the wrap around balcony! We enjoyed our 40 nights stay immensely, and one of the best moments was the 4th of July celebration and fireworks!

Paul and Solange are amazing landlords and everything in their condo is done so tastefully and exquisitely. They have thought through every tiny detail in their beautiful home that will make your stay special, extremely comfortable and superb. I can truly say that after staying in their condo you would not want to stay anywhere else! Thank you for sharing your fantastic home with us! We look forward to our next stay!

Amazing winter

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 month stay at the Mansions. Paul and Solange were terrific landlords who seemed to only care that our stay was enjoyable. The view from this condo is exquisite. Everyone who visited us were dumbfounded by the beauty and majesty seen from the west and south exposures. It was very hard to leave.

Fishing from dock on John's Pass Inland Waterway or Gulf Front Beach.

Local Area: Pirates Square, Treasure Island's main shopping center, is a short distance away along Gulf Blvd to the north. John's Pass is to the north, where all manner of water based activities can be found, such as parasailing, wave runner rental, deep sea fishing trips, daily casino ship outings and even dolphin watch excursions. Restaurants and bars can be found at both Johns Pass and within the Pirates Square complex, in addition to those located 'beach front' on Gulf Blvd itself. Intracoastal fishing is just a few steps away and private beach access is just outside the property.

This area of Florida's Gulf Coast is a vacationers delight, besides

the pristine white sand beaches it is ideally located to reach

Disney World (approx 1.5 hours away) and Busch Gardens (50 minutes away).
