Property description

RESERVED: January 1st THROUGH 1st May 2016.

This is a modern, well furnished, and well equipped condo with a beautiful view across the bay to the South, towards the neighboring island of Tierra Verde and Pass-A-Grille. It is ideally located for easy and quick travel throughout central Florida as it is only a few minutes from the interstate network and St Pete Beach.

As you enjoy a meal on the patio dolphins can frequently be seen swimming a couple of hundred yards off shore, and sometimes even closer!

With free Wi-Fi for your emails and no charge for telephone calls within continental USA the condo boasts a 42 inch flat screen TV in living room and also a TV in each bedroom. (cable)

The condo also has quality kitchen appliances, and furniture. Linens and towels are replaced regularly. The kitchen is fully equipped right down to last detail, with quality cookware, crockery, and silverware. The condo enjoys luxurious fully tiled upgrades to bathrooms. The master bedroom has a 'wet room' style shower en-suite of Italian tile and granite, the second bathroom is tile and marble with a garden tub and shower above. For your added comfort and convenience the living room, kitchen and patio were recently updated with quality floor tiles, and new quality carpet laid to both bedrooms April 2012. Each of the two bedrooms has a queen bed, and in the living room a pull out sofa which has a quality double mattress. Because we use the condo for our vacations, and we are “fussy”, it is continually well maintained, our “Home from Home”.

This ground level villa type condominium is located on the beautiful tropical island of Isla Del Sol (Island of the Sun); it boasts an 18-hole golf course which meanders through the island. The condominium has breath-taking uninterrupted views of the salt-water Boca Ciega Bay on the Gulf of Mexico, which surround the island. The water's edge is a mere 100 feet from the patio!

The Island (linked by bridges) is ideally located only 30 minutes easy drive from Tampa Airport to the east, and is less than one mile from St. Pete Beach; Sarasota lies 30 minutes to the south. Disney World is within an easy 90 minute drive north-east on interstates.

The complex has its own exercise room, a large pool on the picturesque water’s edge, heated Jacuzzi and a fishing pier. There are multiple guest parking spaces in addition to one exclusive covered garage space.

Conveniently located close to Fort DeSoto Park-North Beach voted Number One 'Top 10 Best Beaches' in the USA in 2005, and only a few miles from Caladisi Island, voted Number One beach in 2008!

The resort has 24 hour security patrols and so crime in the area is virtually unheard of.

This tropical condominium complex is one of the most sought after for vacation rentals in the 'Isla Del Sol' community, and it's easy to see why! You might find lower rates on Isla, but not with a view like this one, or which has had $$$$ lavished on it since purchase.

Walk just a few steps to the magnificent waterfront pool, which is beautifully furnished, and is complete with hot tub.

Perhaps the best memories you will take away will be those of the time you relaxed on the patio where you can view a variety of sea birds and frequently spot the dolphins as they search for breakfast or lunch! Enjoy the stunning Florida sunsets from the beautiful and meticulously maintained tropical grounds.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Owned by Janet and David Hilton who are based in England.

Why the Owner Chose Isla del Sol:
We visited St Pete for the first time in 2003 from our home in England. We simply fell in love with the area and purchased our first condo, which had a golf course view. We learned our current condo with such a terrific bay view was for sale and so we 'traded up'. We have no regrets! In addition to the view we have great neighbors, superb weather and lots to enjoy throughout the region.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect of the condo's location is the tranquility. The uninterrupted view of the bay and the peaceful nature of the location create an atmosphere of relaxation, a haven away from life's pressures. With the beautiful white sand of Fort Desoto Beach only minutes away one can enjoy a relaxing stroll at any time of the day. But perhaps the most beautiful time to visit is at sunset. The sunsets are amongst the most awesome one can experience.
