About Jeffrey Solomon
Sharda and I take great joy in this unique property a - piece of Florida's heritage! On the bay where the beach meets the bay. Courteous and friendly. When you are here you are at home. HERE IS THE EXPERIENCE WE AIM TO PROVIDE FOR YOU: Think Bee Wop a Doo Dah. Think 60's retro with unique themed condominiums in a small private Florida jungle retreat. Take a break from the large, faceless, Mc Hotels. At Whispers you will NOT lose your family between the lobby and the pool! This is old time Florida. Escape the swarms of strangers, crowded pools and relax in the ambiance of a more genteel environment. Lush jungle gardens and huge trees to shade you, and cool breezes fan you by the pool. Does this sound right for you? Then you will love a Florida Heritage vacation, a blast from the past. The Bee Wop a Doo Dah. We will take you back to the days when the family piled into Dads Buick Roadmaster 'Woodie' and headed south for an adventure to the pristine beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Relive an era before the large 'Box Hotels' popped up on every corner. Before McDonalds. An era when the corner soda shop was the place to hang out! This blast from the past has just 8 units set in a lush tropical garden. Every unit has a unique themed decor, such as Oriental, Africa, Hawaii, England etc. This is real honest to goodness American apple pie, old time, down home Florida with all its eccentricities. Whispers is a very small and extremely private bay front property. Lose your cares. Feel human again! Your patronage helps us preserve our Vintage Florida Heritage. The property is updated while still preserving the essential elements, colors and feel of our Florida heritage.

Loved staying at this condo
Loved staying at this condo. The views were amazing, it had everything we needed and more, and all communication was easy and quick. I would stay here again. Thanks for a great honeymoon!
The Beach is Amazing!
We had unit 1, VERY SMALL. A few things that we had to make due with, but the beach was well worth it!
Fantastic location, cute and quaint!!
Doesn't look like much from the outside, but once inside you forget where your at...lush tropical foliage throughout....the deck on the ICW is fantastic. We stayed in unit 1 for two nights...just the right size...the only negatives we're an unheated pool and some bathroom floor dirt. Otherwise, a neat place to stay, and pet friendly too!
Thanks so much for your kind review.
We (Sharda and I ) really appreciate it and we thank you for taking such good care of our property when you were here.
We were doing maintenance on the roof - and I had to shut off the pool heater that is located on the roof - and I apologize that the pool was not heated for a couple of days.
I am delighted that you enjoyed the Treasure Bay Views - usually you can see dolphins every day and in summer time you can see manatees as well.
Whispers is a preservation project - being a Florida Heritage Resort. The lush gardens are my passion - and they are quite unique to Whispers - and we have the largest rubber tree that I have ever seen - at 50 feet tall and 30 feet wide!
Thanks for staying with us!
Jeffrey and Sharda
The pictures on the website were nothing like the property. The property is very run down and you feel like you are in a jungle. The pool is not heated. We rented for memorial weekend and only stayed one night. The room was for 4 people but you only had parking for one car. The other guest had to park down the street and pay for parking. I would not recommend this property.
I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. I know you booked last minute for Memorial weekend, however I did tell you that we had no additional parking spaces available for a second vvehicle.
We also do not heat our pool when the temperatures are above 90 degrees!
Our gardens are very lush and we are very proud of them.
I have more than 100 species of tropical plants from Avocado and Mango to pygmy dates and passion fruit vines. I spend more than 3 hours a day trimming and caring for the gardens - which is one of the attractions of Whispers.
You will not find gardens like this at any other resort.
Some people may prefer a sterile environment and I respect that. Most big hotels have the obligatory palm tree in the drive way and not much else - however we are famous for being traditional Florida Resort and our tropical gardens are a huge attraction for our guests.
We have even won an award from the City for our "jungle".
We also are proud of our giant Rubber tree - the largest tree on Treasure Island - that is more than 5 stories tall!!
So my suggestion to all our future guests is that if that you do not like nature, and if you want a chrome and glass - chain store "McHotel" you can probably find one right in your own home town.
If you want to experience a true Florida Heritage property, the way Florida used to be back in your parents days and for some of you, your grandparents days, then that is what we offer.
This is a throwback to when you would pile in the family "woodie" and head to a small mom and pop resort in Florida.
It is Route 66 revisited, it is the days of the corner soda jerk shop and a blast from the past!
Welcome to retro - Florida!
Jeffrey and Sharda
Perfect for me and my boyfriend.
Very clean and had everything that we wanted including beach towels and
dinnerware for dining in! Definitely on our return list, happy memories!
It was a pleasure meeting you both and Sharda and I are delighted that you had a great stay!
Thanks so much for taking such good care of our condo.
Come back soon,
Jeffrey and Sharda
Beautiful beach condo !!!
I have never been in such a beautiful beach condo Treasure Island, Florida.They have everything available for you from kitchen utensils to beach fun essentials. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for an undisturbed, hideaway if you want to drop out of sight and forget the world. Very laid back and friendly. Great neighbors and we all had a good time meeting folks from other parts of the world like from England, New York and Canada.
Part of the charm of Whispers is the very unique grace and friendliness of a Heritage Property with all the charm of a bygone era.
Folks feel like it is a healing place which we believe it is.
We loved being able to share this with you and to have helped be a part of you Florida memories.
Thank you for your review.
Jeffrey and Sharda
