Overview

Florida Central Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Our goal is to provide comforts of home in a peaceful relaxing atmosphere.

Located on a beautiful beach facing the Gulf of Mexico, this unit is part of the Chateau Condominium, a 15-unit two story building in a small residential town that is not part of a noisy tourist section of Florida, yet is only a short distance to restaurants and excitement. Sand Key and Clearwater Beach are just north of here. Belleair Beach has completed a beach re-nourishment program and the beach is one of the nicest in Pinellas county.

This unit is on the second floor, facing east, with a balcony, which has chairs and picnic table for relaxing.

The Condo gets morning sun from the east, so it is cheery and sunny all morning. In heat of the afternoon, it’s cooler on the shady balcony after spending time in the bright sun by the pool and on the beach.

The unit consists of a one bedroom and a combination kitchen/living room. The rooms are approximately 12 by 12 feet.

In the combination kitchen/living room, offers a electric recliner love seat, there is a 40 inch flat screen LCD Samsung HD TV. with surround sound The free Wi-Fi connection is through Roadrunner. Just bring your laptop and you are all set to work at the window and watch the dolphins go by.

The bedroom offers white rattan furniture and a new Simmons Beautyrest Pillow top queen-size bed with 600 count sheets and choice of pillows. There is also a second TV in the bedroom capable of playing DVD's. The bedroom window has a view of the Gulf of Mexico and a park. At night you can hear the sound of the waves, as you fall asleep. During the day you get extra light and a really nice breeze throughout the rooms

Our fully tiled bathroom features a Shower Body Panel Spa.

The unit is ideally sized for a couple. It sleeps only 2. No Smoking. No Pets.

Some of my past renters have posted directly, their reviews, on this site I have been please everyone gave my condo 5 Stars. Many found it easier just to sign my guest books in the condo before they left. I have posted over 175 more comments; keep scrolling down this web page almost to the end between “Owners Info' & “Photos” to see their comments.

You will have a great vacation just like everyone who has stayed with me in the past.

If you contact me I can send even more details and many more pictures.

About The Owner

Sally and Carol proud owners of a Jewel Box on the Gulf.

Our father bought our condo and it has been in the family since 1980. In Aug 1985 my sister and I inherited the condo the same month that Hurricane Elena pounded our shores for 3 days. What a way to start ownership. Things have only gotten better since the shaky start. A special event was getting married by the gulf on our pool deck.

It’s always special for us to come over to spend a weekend by the water and my guests feel the same way. We love the beautiful beach and the long walks we can take. Sunsets are breath taking. It’s a special place for unwinding relaxing and meeting new friends. Having the gulf, pool and Tiki huts in our back yard is what a vacation is all about.

Since 2004 we have been replacing everything (floors, doors, windows, kitchen, complete tiled bathroom with a spa shower & furniture) in the condo to the finished present day modern remodeled unit.

I live locally and I take care of the condo after every rental. I know the place will be spotless.

The condo is not my business it’s my hobby. I’m always looking for things to improve or add. I want my guest to feel like they are visiting a loved one’s home. I offer all the conveniences’ they would receive from them. Please look over my guest comments and I think I have accomplished my goals.

The Owner purchased this condo in 1980

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our third visit to the "Beautiful Jewel Box of the Gulf" it has been relaxing and enjoyable. We were amazed to have a manatee swim by us in the water on Tuesday, AWESOME!!

We spent some time at the Clearwater aquarium. We got to see Winter and her friends Hope and Nicholas, thank you for your BOGO coupon. When we got home we watched your copy of "Dolphin Tale". Took a trip to downtown Disney for some pin trading /buying. Got to enjoy the flea markets and of course shop at Bells Outlet. Every time we have stayed here you have made more improvements, not sure what you can improve on our next visit, because I don't think you can improve much more. Our last full day was a beach day, the gulf was the warmest it had been all week (82 degrees). The perfect day makes leaving that much more difficult.

If anyone stays here and doesn't leave totally relaxed, then they need to seek professional help. Once again thank you for your hospitality. We are grateful that you share your home away from home with us and so many people. It is therapeutic. Your personal touches make such a difference.

Week long vacation

  • 5 of 5

I had a great time all week. I was able to visit my mom who is close to here in Largo. I was also able to visit with several friends around the bay area during my visit. The sunsets on the beach are fantastic and I was able to view the strawberry Moon right from the front porch. With the simple beach access, it's very easy to wake up in the morning at sunrise, and watch porpoises swim right by the shore. I also experienced a manatee swimming by on one early morning. The condo had everything I needed and my stay was a very relaxing one. Sally goes above and beyond to have her place ready for immediate enjoyment. I highly recommend her condo.

Owner's Response: Hi Roland: What an entrance for your stay pouring rain. So glad it was one of those summer showers and was gone before you knew it. I'm pretty sure the rest of your week was rain free. The place look great when I went in to clean are you sure you stayed here. Glad you had fun with family and friends. You must be special being able to see dolphins and manatees. Dolphins are quite common, manatees are not. Please come back again! Sally

Awesome get-away for R & R

  • 5 of 5

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for an absolutely wonderful and relaxing stay. There is something to be said about having a pool and just steps away from the beach. It was fabulous to be able to go up stairs have lunch and just get back to the great Florida beach without wasting a second. You have gone out of your way to be sure your guests have a wonderful relaxing stay. We also really appreciate all the recommendation for restaurants, things to do and visit.

With gratitude! Lindsey and Tommy

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure meeting you guys, twice during your visit. I love making new friends. Next time I'll pick you up for that yoga class on Indian rocks beach. Glad I was able to offer you an extra night after your flight was canceled. Seeing another beautiful sunset can sure take away the stress of flying. Sally

Sweet condo

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot at beautiful Bellaire Beach. Pool area with palapas and picnic tables ideal. The entry system worked perfectly, no worries about losing keys! I especially liked the purified water, I always kept several bottles refilled in the fridge.

Sally has thought of everything.

Small, but comfortable.

Honeymoon paradise

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for allowing my new hubby Matthew and I to spend our honeymoon here at your condo we had such a good time. We truly feel like we were in paradise compared to Wisconsin. Word has it, the temp is down to 17° and a snow storm hit yesterday! ( ha ha suckers.) We really appreciate all the sweet touches and gifts you provided. My favorite favorite part of this place was collecting seashells and spotting dolphins feeding right in front of your condo. They were so quick though I couldn't get a picture. By the end of of our nights we really enjoyed picking out movies to watch. Unfortunately we fell asleep through most of them, we were so exhausted. This condo is perfect location for us. We don't want to leave! Thanks again Sally I hope this is not a goodbye forever! Love Anna and Matthew

The Height of Relaxation and Comfort

  • 5 of 5

I love coming back to the Chateau. Walking the beach in the morning with coffee is a wonderful wake up. Reading on the beach in the winter sun is so relaxing. Watching for the flash at the end of a beautiful sunset is so romantic. Sally provides everything you need for a peaceful and carefree time away from the hubbub of the world. It truly is a little gem!
