Overview

Florida Central Gulf Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3.0 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Indulge yourself in the Penthouse at Island Inn. 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom condo suite on the top floor of this beachfront complex.

The view from this place is simply breathtaking. Watch dolphins play in the water. Watch the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico from the top floor of this beachfront property. Although this unit does not have a walk-out balcony, the living room is designed to safely open up with large sliding doors giving an incredible, upfront open experience.

The condo can accommodate up to 8 people with a comfortable King size bed in the master, a premium quality Queen size bed (new Feb 2016) in the 2nd Bedroom, two premium full size beds (new Feb 2016) in the 3rd bedroom and a full size sleep sofa in the living room. For those days when you need a break from the beach, the living room has a room-filling 55" flat screen with DVD player, the master and second bedroom have a 32" flat screen with DVD player, and the third bedroom has a 25" flat screen TV. Coin operated washer/dryer on site. Complementary private high-speed WiFi Internet for our guests.

Go down the elevator and walk 30 feet to the beautiful white sand. Splash in the year-round heated beachfront pool with pool side Tiki bar. All the amenities of a top rated resort.

Please note - this condo is NOT wheelchair accessible as there are steps inside.

Enjoy the shopping and waterfront restaurants of Johns Pass Boardwalk to the north. Treasure Island is conveniently located between St. Pete Beach and Clearwater. 30 minutes to the Tampa International Airport. Orlando with Disney, Universal and Sea World are just 90 minutes away. This would be a fantastic place to bring the kids on vacation, to escape the cold in the winter, and to enjoy MLB spring training. But even with all there is to do near this condo, you'll spend a lot of time just looking out your window at the magnificent view.

Great for extended families.

  • 4 of 5

I agree with previous reviews regarding the mixed floor heights in the condo and the ongoing painting and pool maintenance during spring break time. Very disconcerting to pull open the blinds for the ocean view with morning coffee, and be faced instead with a scaffold and painters. Back to the penthouse...the amount of space, views, and full kitchen was fantastic. We had 4 adults and 2 children traveling and everyone had their own space (and TV!). That being said, it's time for a little maintenance (re-hang drapes onto hooks properly, get sinks draining better, replace/repair shower hardware, touch up wall paint where needed,etc.). Can't forget to extend kudos to ITrip for this - I called Sunday night at 8 pm to leave a message about a problem with the TV (only so it could be addressed on Monday). I received a call back within 15 minutes from a very helpful gentleman...problem solved.

Last minute stay

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay. Wish we would've stayed longer. Strict Check in time is a little late (4pm) but do able. The floors in the condo are different levels. Must pay attention! I rspecially liked the number of bathrooms! Made getting out the door very easy with 5 adults, 2 teenagers and a baby.

Penthouse Great for a family or group

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse that we rented for our family at the Island Inn was great. Lots of room, nicely decorated. Very comfortable. I stayed at the Island Inn two years in a row and both times there was maintenance taking place. Last year wasn't as bad as this year because it was being done in the front of the building. This year the ocean front was being painted. I know they need to do this, but during prime weeks, when prices are their highest isn't being considerate of renters. This isn't a reflection of itrips, but our week wasn't without inconvience. We should have been notified of this before.All the people I chatted with felt the same way. They even power washed the pool area while my grandkids were trying to swim, and all had to leave. Power washed the building one day, and then without warning they were painting in front of your windows or on the balconies. The painters even cleaned their brushes out on the sand right by the volleyball nets were children would play.We do love the area, and renting from itrips has gone very smoothly. I know that if we returned next year this should not be a problem as it should be done by then. We will see?

Great vacation

  • 4 of 5

This property was perfectly located, perfectly priced and perfect for my family of 6!!! The views were spectacular and the place was in great condition. There are weird steps but nothing that bothered us. The bar and bartender were fantastic and the pool was as well. My only complaint and only reason I would not give this a 5 is due to a very unhappy, miserable woman that worked the front desk we delt with 3 others that were extremely pleasant and kind but this 1 was very nasty and made us feel like asking a question was an inconvienance to her!!!! We spent the whole week trying to avoid the front desk if she was there!!! We also talked to others with the same complaint!!! I do have to reintegrate the other 3 that worked the desk were VERY nice and helpful.

Penthouse only means top floor- don't be decieved

  • 2 of 5

The condo was on the top floor of an antiquated hotel. There were step ups in the condo where they apparently added some plumbing for the bathrooms. We tripped on these continually. There are three sliding doors facing the ocean with no balcony. There is only an aluminum railing to keep someone from falling out of the 6th floor doors. The furniture and beds (and felt as if) appeared to have been recycled through good will a few times. Keep looking.. You can probably find something much better for the money.

Explore pristine Florida beaches in the St. Petersburg area, home to Madeira Beach and Treasure Island. Pick from houses, condos and cottages, and get ready to enjoy sugar white sand and warm breezes. Vacations in the St. Petersburg area offer abundant outdoor recreation – on and off the water – a lively arts scene, and award-winning restaurants.

Madeira Beach, located west of St. Petersburg is home to John's Pass Village and Boardwalk, a fun attraction for all ages. John's Pass, or the Pass to locals, offers top dining and nightlife options, family-friendly attractions, shopping and water sports. While walking the 1,100-foot boardwalk, see alligators at The Alligator Attraction and dolphins playing in the Gulf's waters. Walk into dozens of unique shops that sell everything from beachwear to shells to find the perfect souvenir or gift.

Madeira Beach's restaurants welcome family and friends to try the fresh local flavor. Many top-rated restaurants at the Pass feature entertainment, specials and events as well. The Seafood Festival at John's Pass – held annually in October – hosts more than 100,000 guests to celebrate food, music, and arts and crafts.

Water lovers can parasail, rent jet skis or deep-sea fish to complete their beach vacation. John's Pass is also a popular fishing destination and brings in more grouper than any other place in Florida. Visitors can also relax while birdwatching, boating and canoeing, all within easy access of their vacation rental.

Treasure Island – adjacent to St. Petersburg – is another favorite beach town in Florida. Swim, snorkel, fish, parasail and shell at this hot spot, which was named from an early hotel owner who buried and discovered treasure chests on the beach.

Known as a secret spot for sunsets, Treasure Island's 3 miles of beaches serve as the perfect place to watch the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico with someone special. Treasure Island also offers guests fun-filled attractions and things to do, paired with restaurants serving everything from breakfast to fresh seafood dinners. Many restaurants in Treasure Island are top TripAdvisor recipients and range from bar casual to fine dining.

Other popular attractions in the St. Petersburg area include the award-winning Salvador Dali Museum and Fort De Soto Park, the largest park within the Pinellas County Park System, measuring more than 1,100 acres.
