About Julia Kristmundsdottir

We are locals and have lived here in Tampa Bay paradise for over two decades. The condo is our other home and is very comfortable, warm and clean. It is fully equipped, has all the main staples in the kitchen and in the bathroom, all the "beach stuff" as well as other items for comfort. Our sunny balcony provides great privacy with fantastic view of the Gulf.

Julia Kristmundsdottir purchased this condo in 1990

Why Julia Kristmundsdottir chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

A home away from home! We make sure our condo has everything, and some more, so our guests can be comfortable and feel at home. We run and maintain it ourselves and it gives us great pleasure knowing that our guests can get to enjoy this piece of paradise too.

What makes this condo unique

Treasure Island Beach has charming white sandy beaches, beautiful sunsets and calming ocean all year long. Lots of shops, bars and restaurants.

These reviews must be getting boring.

  • 5 of 5

Add another 5-star review to the list. Expectations were exceeded on every count. There are already dozens of positive comments on this page, and they're all true.

The condo is great - well maintained, fully stocked, nicely laid out and decorated, and comfortable. Land's End is a nice property in a good, out of the way location still an easy drive to everything, and the staff is courteous and helpful. The beach is a very short walk from the condo, even carrying the provided chairs and umbrella, and in June, at least, it was not a bit crowded.

Finally, as nearly every review makes clear, Julia, the owner, hits every mark. My wife and I felt like personal guests in her very special paradise, and we're looking forward to our next visit.

Great condo, beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in Julia's condo before and once again we had a wonderful week. Her condo is nicely decorated, very clean, comfortable and has everything you'd need to enjoy your stay in Treasure Island. We definitely will return to Land's End and hopefully stay in Julia's condo!

Excellent condo, location, and owner

  • 5 of 5

Our visit was exceptional, and the condo was immaculate and extremely well stocked with everything needed for the stay, including beach chairs and equipment, towels, toys, cooler, etc. Even 4 types of suntan lotion!

The owner obviously takes excellent care to see cooking needs are available, such as spices, sugar, silverware, pots and pans, etc. We have stayed at many condos over the years and have never found one this well prepared. All we needed to shop for was the food itself we were going to cook.

We even had a parking spot indoors, which is great if it rains. The condo office was very helpful in allowing us to print our boarding passes on their printer the day before leaving so we didn't have to wait in line the next morning at the airport. (And pay Allegient Airlines $10 for the privilege of printing out their boarding passes)

Wireless internet worked very well, and noise between the units didn't exist, even with small children on either side.

We would highly recommend contacting Julia to book her unit. She was extremely responsive on some general questions, including giving us tips on local restaurants and providing a bike for us to use..

We expect to be making this our home for our annual spring trips to Treasure Island/St. Petes..

A Real Gem on Treasure Island!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough good things about Julia's Land's End condo. The short review is... What are you waiting for? Just pack up and go! :)

If you aren't familiar with this part of Treasure Island (at the end of Sunset Beach), you really should be. Its got a real nice mix of small beach cottages and houses as well as higher end oceanfront homes and condos too. All in a very peaceful setting, just far enough away from Gulf Blvd. (kind of reminds me of Pass-a-Grille Beach area).

As far as the condo at Land's End goes, I can honestly say it is the BEST I have stayed at in the St. Pete area. I have been to many over the last 10 or so years I have vacationed here (and many, many more if you include the Sarasota-Bradenton area) and this one offers the perfect mix of a peaceful, quiet setting and a very nicely appointed luxury condo with every amenity you could want. The condo is VERY well stocked with beach towels, beach chairs and such and the kitchen and bathroom are complete with everything you could want (it was better stocked than my own place!). Did I also mention that everything just works too! The a/c, washer & dryer, dishwasher, all appliances, Wi-Fi, etc., not a single issue! The pride of ownership definitely shows throughout.

You will absolutely love the HUGE pool at Land's End especially those with smaller kids. I also really enjoyed the beach area in front of Land's End because, since you are at the end of Sunset Beach, it is off the "beaten track" and is very private. The ocean is very calm here with very shallow water with a nice sandbar not too far out; again, great for kids too. Take a walk and enjoy the sunset every evening, priceless stuff.

Land's End is a gated complex with a security guard & reserved parking so no issues or worries there at all.

Finally, you couldn't ask for a better owner than Julia. She's very hands on and made the entire experience flawless, including personally mailing the deposit refund. I am so pleased and impressed with the condo and Julia that I have officially stopped looking for places to stay in St. Pete, and am making plans to return very shortly.

Best VRBO experience yet!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! My wife and I just spent 8 nights at this beautiful Land’s End Condo. We have used VRBO and other sites repeatedly over the past several years and are seldom disappointed, but we are rarely this impressed with a unit. The owner was extremely responsive and helpful. The design and layout of the condo was impressively well thought out. The only room where all of the walls met at a right angle was the bedroom. This may sound like an odd observation, but this makes the place feel so spacious and open. The balcony was large, with comfortable seating for four. Another nice detail was that there was an air conditioning vent directly over the vanity in the bathroom that keeps you nice and cool when you jump out of the shower. The kitchen was as well-equipped as any place we have stayed. (There is no full sized oven, but a very adequate toaster oven. There is a conveniently located charcoal grille area adjacent to the building.) What a pleasure it was to have an ample supply of sharp knives and other good quality cookware, utensils, dishes, and other kitchen essentials! The space is tastefully decorated; not overly "beachy", but a nice vacation vibe. A comfortable bed, sofa and love seat, dining table for 4, soft towels, lots of closet space with plenty of hangers, and nice touches like a makeup mirror and hair dryer in the bathroom round out an extensive list of amenities. The grounds, the pool, and hot tubs were all well cared for. The pool and the beach are just a short walk from the building entrance. We just can’t express how much we enjoyed this place! The owner was great. There are plenty of great places to eat within a short drive. We visited Tampa, Sarasota, and St. Petersburg during our stay. Lots to see. We will be staying here again!
