St. Pete Beach condo description

Our condo, Vistas 301 is the unit with the American flag flying on the balcony in our opening picture. No fooling around here, it's a TRUE GULF FRONT CONDO (not a side unit) with many recent upgrades. Vistas on the Gulf is a 38 unit condo built on St. Pete Beach in 2003. If you've never been here, the beach is a great place for families, quiet and relaxing. We are the original owners of unit 301 and spend as much time as possible there, it has become our oasis! The gulf front view is just incredible, not only during the day, but look at our pictures to see some of the spectacular sunsets and rainbows we've seen!

The unique thing about our unit is that we have two balconies--a large balcony directly facing west to the beach and Gulf of Mexico. Another balcony is off the second bedroom and faces south. This view gives you a great pool view and a beautiful gulf view. One of the nice features of our condo, is that you can walk right out to the beach and can enjoy several beach restaurants/bars and never even have to put on your shoes!

Each unit is individually owned and we have added many personal touches. Master bedroom has a queen bed with a new premium mattress purchased in July '10 and other bedroom has a bunk bed with stairs, twin mattress top full mattress bottom purchased Dec '12. The living room also has a new double sized sofa-sleeper purchased Nov '12 . As nice as the unit is, you'll most likely be enjoying the beautiful beach and weather outside! New power leather recliner and carpets purchased November 2011. New air conditioning system installed March 2011.
We clean, upgrade and replace items during each of our 4-6 visits each year. We take great pride in our condo and believe in putting money back into it to keep it fresh, updated and desireable. Just like you, we like staying in a clean updated well maintained condo when we vacation. We re invest in our condo continuously hoping that our guests have a wonderful experience. We love repeat guests.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: My wife and I have owned our beach condo since construction was completed in March 2003 and take great pride in our unit. We visit often from Chicago and are on top of any little repairs or missing household items. It's more than an investment property and your enjoyment during your vacation is important to us! We 're always cleaning, replacing or upgrading something during our 4-6 visits each year. We belive in putting money back into our condo to keep it clean, fresh and desireable. We want you to have a wonderful experience contact us directly for your next visit to St Pete Beach. We love having repeat guests.

                      Why the Owner Chose St. Pete Beach:
                      We love St. Pete Beach! My wife's grandparents and parents have been visiting since the 40's. SPB is totally laid back. Tee shirts, shorts and flip flops is the dress code there. I always say SPB is more like Key West then Palm Beach. Relax and leave your tux and evening wear at home. Our kids are always safe. We never have an issue with them walking on the beach day or night. Not to worry Mom and Dad, no wet tee shirt contests going on here. This is a great family place.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      St Pete Beach has beautiful white sand beaches. It has a relaxing laid back feeling to it. Enjoy a leasure walk along the beach or pick up the pace and run while enjoying the surf, sun and realxing atmosphere. Don't forget to smile and say hello to the other walkers and runners as they greet you. Enjoy the many beach side and casual restaurants near my condo. We keep a magnetic listing of our favorites on our refrigerator. Publix Super Market is 1/4 mile north of us on Gulf Blvd, easy to walk to. There is a trolley (bus) stop in front of our building for easy traveling up and down Gulf Blvd. You'll love my unit as everyone does as you'll see in the guest comment book we keep in our living room. You won't be disappointed.
