About Dilys Koch

We are both beach lovers and dreamed of one day having our own condo at the beach. We searched all over Florida until we ran upon this beautiful property on the Gulf of Mexico and we fell in love with it.

Dilys Koch purchased this condo in 2001

Why Dilys Koch chose St Petersburg Area

We purchased this property because of its convenient location to the airport, Tampa/St. Pete beach and the over all feeling of being on a quiet beautiful safe beach.

What makes this condo unique

location location location, Non Smoking, Clean, Property is beach front

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Dilys,

Firstly we would like to say thank you so much for the publix gift card, i had forgotten all about it, so on arrival at the condo it was a nice surprise.

My husband and i had a wonderful stay in your beautiful condo and really enjoyed our time there, we have both been quite sad since our return home.

Your condo is just perfect and we would love to return soon, many thanks.

Terre haute, IN

Could be managed a bit better!

  • 2 of 5

This place is ok until you really start to look into it. The Dillys are really great to work with and they have no idea I am sure how it's being kept and managed which makes me sad cause they are great people to deal with! However, the housekeeping really don't clean well. Floors was dirty my kids feet was black from the floor after walking around 10 minutes after arriving! The sheets was dirty on fold out couch with something all over them? Fridge was very dirty. The patio is ok but looking out over the public beach area the whole time and having people driving in and out of it all night was not great! There is a good view of ocean but sitting out on patio in evening was not always pleasant with the people on the next floor dropping ashes over the side and blowing on to our patio. Very noisy most nights. Over all would not return unless improvements was made.

Owner's Response: Dear Jason, Thank you for the review of our property. I'm sorry the condo did not meet your expectations. We have owned our condo 16 years now and this is the first review that we have gotten that was not positive. My husband and I were at the condo (2) weeks prior to your family checking in and the condo was left in perfect shape. I don't have any idea what happened in those (2) weeks but I will find out. I will talk with our on-site management staff with regard to the housekeeping issues as well as call the previous guest to get feed back from them. We appreciate you letting us know. Thank you, Dilys (Owner)

Owner's Response: Hello Vince, Thank you for sending in your review. Just thought I'd let you know that we have up-graded the bedroom with a King size headboard and new mattress and box springs. The condo should be even more comfortable. We look forward to having you back to stay again. Dilys (Owner)

St Pete Beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

Myself and three other adults were fortunate enough to stay in this condo for a long weekend. The bed and sofa bed were both comfortable. The view and location were the main attraction of course. This unit is conveniently located that once you park you can walk anywhere you may want to go. But to be honest, why would you leave. We had everything we needed and more. I will return for certain. The view from the balcony along guarantees that, thanks!

My husband, our 9 month old, and I visited the property for a week. It had everything that we needed and more, including a washer and dryer and dishwasher! The unit was very well kept with beachy decor. Every morning, we walked the beach and every evening we enjoyed spectaular views of sunsets over the gulf from the balcony. We would stay again! The location was perfect!

A+ All The Way

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of three who arrived not knowing much about the area or the hotels. We hit the jackpot! The condo was great- super clean, beautifully decorated and in the perfect location. We loved having 2 bathrooms- it made getting ready so much quicker for our many outings. The sliding door from the living room was a little tough to open but we simply used the one off the bedroom instead. We loved having a view of the gulf from the balcony. Having an elevator and carts to take things to and from our room made staying there easy. The condo was well stocked with anything we could have needed. The AC, washer/dryer and all appliances worked with no issues. The larger closet space was great! We were told there was a discount for umbrellas/cabanas on the beach for this condo, but didn't find that to be true, (though the prices weren't bad). I would definitely recommend, plus the owners were super nice to deal with on the phone as were the staff at the condo itself.

Owner's Response: Hi Donna, Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. I'm so glad that you all had a good time and I hope you'll come back next year. With regard to the sliding glass door. I have a work order in to have the door fixed, I believe over time the track has gotten bent somehow. The beach chair rentals, I'm sorry you didn't get a discount, I'm thinking the owner of the company didn't communicate to his employee that the discount was available for Gulf Strand guests, (short memories I suppose). Thank you again and I hope you keep us in mind for your next vacation to SPB. Dilys (Owner)

A short drive you could be exploring Fort Desoto State Park. There are a few bike rental businesses to take a spin around the area or hop on the Pinellas Bike Trail and do some bird watching or just discover where the trail leads you.

When your tired of riding bikes or walking the beach hop on one of the trolley cars that runs from Pass-A-Grille to Clearwater (exact change is recommended).
