Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and love travelling to Florida whenever we get a chance.
Why the Owner Chose Beach Cottages I: Before purchasing this property, we examined many others in the beach areas between St. Pete's Beach and Clearwater, and south through Fort Myers, Naples, all the way the the Florida Keys, and along the Atlantic coast through North Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach. This condo has everything we wanted: a wide, white sand beach; nice deck and pool; a quiet, family- oriented building; covered parking; an elevator; and many other great features. Best of all is the condo itself. It's on the third floor overlooking the beach from a wide balcony, plus there's a smaller balcony over the pool deck. The master suite has a huge sliding glass door to the main balcony, so we love to leave it open all night and listen to the waves breaking on the beach. It's the best!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: 1. The incredible view of the beach and Gulf...can't beat it!
2. Walking on the beach, collecting shells.
3. Sitting on the balcony, watching the sun set over the Gulf
4. Having a great meal or just refreshments at one of the many wonderful restaurants nearby.
5. Being lulled to sleep by the sound of the surf...so tranquil!
