Bayview Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom + Living Room Pulldown Bed, Sleeps 4, 2nd Floor Condo

Bermuda Bay’ is the hidden gem in the St. Petersburg area. With it’s private sand beach, lush landscaping and old Florida charm, it offers a quiet escape from the more touristy hotel strip and the bustling atmosphere of St. Petersburg.

The 2-storey buildings are colourful and the foliage + flowers are abundant. Two heated pools and beachfront huts - you can relax the day away until the sun sets directly across the bay - sunsets that usually fill the sky with amazing colours!! The people are warm and friendly, and most visitors return annually to these relationships.

Bermuda Bay offers a secure gated community, a private tidal beach (lots of shells), putting green, and the beachfront recreation area with geothermal heated pool, hot tub, sun decks and club house. Play tennis day or night or walk around the acres of our property, including a lovely old oak forest with trail.

We host wonderful events, if you are looking to socialize – theme parties, card nights, wine and cheese pot lucks. Everyone gathers on the beach with a ‘beverage’ to watch the flaming sun sink into the ocean. Beach life here is casual and relaxed – you can bring your beer/wine to the pool and beach.

Our beach front upstairs unit is located just 50 yards from the sandy beach, and your screened in porch offers a ocean view. You will love the huge variety of shore birds, including pelicans, spoonbills, herons and egrets. Dolphins visit daily (sometimes manatee), and if you kayak, they come very close to your boat. We provide beach chairs, use the huts and benches provided or wade right out into the bay and fish for sea trout, redfish and snook.

There is a queen size bed in the sunny bedroom and a double hide-a-bed in the living room for guests.

The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and has all upgraded Whirlpool appliances. There is a large flat-screen TV in the living room.

The screened in porch is like another room, with seating for dining and ‘ocean gazing’.

CONDO AMENITIES

Quality linen for beds, towels for bathing/beaching, new dishes, pots/pans/cutlery, coffee pot, microwave, toaster, iron big flat-screen TV with cable, stereo/DVD/CD, high speed internet, washer dryer (most rentals offer only communal Laundromat), beach chairs, central air/furnace, and ceiling fans throughout.

OUT AND ABOUT

Through a gate on our property, or in your kayak, you can access Calm Bayou, a nature reserve filled with exotic birds and wildlife. Bike or walk the trails for miles, or paddle the beautiful channels in your boat.

Within minutes, you can arrive at fabulous locations – The whole world-class Gulf beach strip from Clearwater to St. Pete’s beach has a wide, white sand beach for miles, with restaurants and shopping. Fort De Soto is a national park - the site of an old fort, but people go there for the wild, pristine beach, dolphin sighting and bike riding (rated #1 beach in USA). Passe a Grille hosts a weekly art market right on the beach with live entertainment and a beach grill where people gather. Explore the Don Cesar Hotel, with it’s bright coral ‘birthday cake’ façade and world war history as a hospital – great for lunch on the beach. Gulfport hosts art walks, offers superb dining and a weekly farmers’ market and shopping in a funky, retro atmosphere. It also has a dancehall with weekly dances, dance lessons and seasonal events.

St. Petersburg offers endless possibilities – farmers’ market, waterfront biking, the historical Vinoy hotel, Salvadore Dali museum and many other museums/ galleries/theatre. Baywalk mall is a St. Pete’s shopping mecca. There is a major sports stadium – Tropicana Stadium – for baseball enthusiasts. (or drive to Dunedin for the Blue Jays training season).

The core of St. Peterburg is filled with unique shopping and dining. Also within driving range are Tarpon Springs, an old sponging community with a Greek flavour and great dining and events. Rent a boat at Tiera Verde marina and tour the bay for the day dolphin hunting, stopping at quiet beaches and admiring the mansions of the rich and famous. Ybor City offers great nightlife along with it’s bohemian, artsy atmosphere. (dinner at the famous Columbian restaurant with it’s flamenco show is a must).

Want to golf? You can choose from numerous courses. And for the ladies – there are outlet malls all over the place!! Love water sports? We have snorkeling, parasailing, jet-skiing and dolphin spotting cruises available to you in the area to keep you busy during your stay. Need a little romance? Try the Starlight Dinner Cruises on the inland waterway – dine, dance and see the sites. And when you are exhausted, sit in the porch with your wine…and watch the glorious sun go down.

Alternate lifestyle? - you will fit right in here!! Ask us.

About David and Susan

We are retirees who have fallen in love with Bermuda Bay. We live in the condo when staying in Florida, and rent it out other times, to help cover the costs of condo ownership. Our condo is set up as a home (not a sterile rental environment), so you will find it well-equipped and cozy/comfortable.

David and Susan purchased this condo in 2013

Why David and Susan chose St Petersburg

Bermuda Bay has become an extended family. We first came here as renters, for warm beachfront living, and now equally for the friendships we have developed. Here we kayak, swim, bike, and sail, and watch sunsets with our friends.

What makes this condo unique

From the 5 minute proximity to St. Pete's Beach, the quaintness of the village of Gulfport, nearby nature reserves like Fort De Soto (also one right next door with walking/biking trail), or the attractions of waterfront downtown St Petersburg (10 minutes away), it is all minutes from here.

Amazing Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Bermuda Bay is perfectly located - ten minutes to the waterfront in St. Petersburg (the small, artistic city), ten minutes to the main beach strip at St. Pete's Beach (miles of white sand) and ten minutes to Gulfport (for dining, art shows and fresh market). On site, there is a private beach and geo-thermal pools (always warm) as well as world-class sunsets. The condo is stylish and immaculately clean. We had the best time ever!!!

Lovely condo well located!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! The condo is in a fantastic location. It is ten minutes from downtown St. Petes, the beaches and the funky enclave of Gulfport. It is a quiet community with friendly neighbors and great amenities. The condo itself is very clean, comfortable and has lovely character. David and Susan are extremely helpful and super to deal with. We would highly recommend renting here - we intend to come back soon!

Great visit from Dartmouth NS Canada.

Great stay!

I'll start off by saying that David and Susan were extremely helpful as this was our first time renting through VRBO.

The condo was perfect, beautiful property and pool. Close to everything we wanted.

The sunsets are spectacular and we could have sat and watched the birds and fish all day.

We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.
