Completed in 2003, this newer, top floor, luxury condominium is ideally located directly along the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico on St. Pete Beach. Step out onto the balcony from the living room or master suite to enjoy a spectacular sunrise or witness your slice of the beach as it comes alive. This unit gets full sun in the morning and into the early afternoon which makes it a great place for that morning cup of coffee, breakfast or lunch as well as a good spot to catch some rays! In the fall, we have a great view of the sunset from our balcony as the sun moves south!
The unit is fully furnished and professionally decorated with floor-to-ceiling mirrors that give added dimension to your living space. The fully-equipped kitchen provides for the comfort and convenience of a relaxing meal at home. The kitchen and two full baths are warmed by the upscale feel of maple cabinets and granite counter tops. There is a king-sized bed in the master bedroom, two twin beds with convenient built-in storage drawers in the second bedroom and a queen-sized sleep sofa in the living room. Cable TV is available in both bedrooms and the living room which also has a stereo with CD player and separate DVD player for your enjoyment.
We have created a lovely master suite by updating the master bath, adding a king bed, installing a high-end carpet and room darkening shades over sheers. The second bedroom has been updated as well where we added twin platform beds with new mattresses, replaced the dresser and added a new lamp and bed-side chest.
2014 was our busiest year ever, however, we took advantage of the few openings in our schedule to repaint the master suite, second bedroom and living room. We replaced the sleep sofa, dishwasher, refrigerator, bedroom furniture, DR table and chairs and patio furniture. The comfort of our guests is extremely important to us as you can tell! Our semi-annual deep cleaning was done in mid-December to get ready for the high season which included steam cleaning the rugs and furniture. We obviously work extremely hard to keep the condo looking its best which is easy to do when you live a few miles away. Why would you even consider a dated unit or a small hotel room??
Almost forgot ~ as local owners we have no use for an owner's closet and provide this space for our guests more than doubling your closet space. After all, who wants to live out of suitcases on vacation? Between that and the storage drawers under the twin platform beds you have storage space galore!
For those folks who know the area well, you already know all of the reasons that this is such a great vacation spot. St. Pete Beach was rated the #1 beach in the USA in March of 2012 and ranked us #5 in the world by a familiar travel website. Not enough? Former Governor Charlie Crist declared us the sunset capital of Florida replacing a dejected Key West! We have you covered on the art scene as well with downtown St. Petersburg (a mere 15 minute ride away) named the nation's #1 top arts destination for mid-sized US cities for several years in a row by American Style Magazine. Reasons cited were the new Salvador Dali Museum, the Chihuly Collection and the Warehouse Arts District. Did you know that there are many spring training sites in our proximity? If you are in town during March you may be able to snag tickets to a game to see your favorite team at a reasonable price! Our hometown professional sports teams offer the opportunity to see major league events at a more modest cost than in most other stadiums around the country. The Tampa Bay Rays play in an indoor stadium less than a 15 minute ride from the condo. Popular annual events in the area include the Firestone Grand Prix through the streets of downtown St. Pete, Beach Goes Pops, Gasparilla and so much more. So much to offer ~ never enough time!
Head down to the sugar white sands of our fabulous beach or simply hang out by the pool and spa. You decide. Stop by the lending library inside the onsite office to pick up the latest book on your way out. You can meander down the beach to the legendary and historic Don CeSar Beach Resort for an unparalleled dining experience or stroll a bit further to quaint Pass-A-Grille for a bit of shelling or to explore the unique shops and galleries. Consider casual dining at the many waterside restaurants for a relaxing evening under the stars or check out the many highly-rated off-beach restaurants. There are great rooftop bars to enjoy one of our many spectacular sunsets. There is no shortage of great spots!
This lovely condo offers FREE unlimited calling within the US and Canada as well as FREE Wi-Fi internet access. We know that most guests have cell phones but this is a great convenience if you have limited minutes or the battery runs down. Also a perk for our many Canadian guests.
We are local owners who are frequently onsite to manage and care for our unit which is reflected in the condition of our lovely condo. We strive to keep it updated and make constant improvements with the comfort of our guests always number one. We love our condo and think you will too! Come stay with us ~ you'll be glad you did!
Owner is an area licensed realtor. We’d love to find you a great place, too! Otherwise, we hope to see you again in our lovely condo.

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: We are very local owners living less than five miles away from our condo. We were spending so much time down here on the beach that we decided to make it our permanent home. Who can blame us? Carol has been a local Realtor on the beach since 2005 and Dave has worked in the area marine industry and is now affiliated with a Fortune 100 company. We're avid boaters and wanted to live on the water in a place we consider 'paradise'.
Why the Owner Chose St. Pete Beach: Beaches are among the best in the world with four having been rated #1 within the past few years by Dr. Beach. We are in what we consider the best spot on St. Pete Beach. We are mid-beach and don't suffer the erosion issues that plague the north and south ends of the beach ~ our beach actually grows a bit with each passing storm. There are no ugly T-Groins (found at the far north end of the beach) or dangerous jetties ~ simply a beautiful stretch of beach.
Personally, we think our condo is one of the best on the beach and personally maintained by local owners which mean we spend many weekends in the property giving it an additional polish long after the cleaning people are gone. They do a great job but we know our guests expect the best and we do whatever we can to deliver!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Location, location, location. Being mid-beach, we are in the middle of it all making it easy to get to local grocery stores, restaurants, bars, etc. You can walk, drive or take several of the local trolley or beach 'jitney' options. A car is optional as it is easy to get around using various means of transportation.
