Treasure Island condo description

We are the private owners of this CORNER CONDO and this is the ONLY property we rent. We personally take the time and pride to care for it and to give you an outstanding service. I do the CLEANING myself and I even IRON the linen for you. We live also privately here in Treasure Island on Isle of Capri, only seven minutes away by car. You can always reach us 24/7and we will assist you in any way possible.
Our CORNER condo is VERY well equipped with everything you find in your own home also and we did and still do the designing ourselves, the European style.
Let's start with entering our condo and you are attracted to the full view from the 5th floor facing the wide and white beaches, as we are located DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH. Our condo is a CORNER unit and from every window and every room you overlook the beaches. Yes, there are neighboring buildings, but these are Motels with only 1 - 2 floors high and therefore, they are not obstructing your view to the horizon over the waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
The kitchen is the heart of our condo and right in the center of the living room. We had the kitchen totally refurbished with a so called Face Lift in Spring 2013.
At the granite counter top you can watch someone in the family preparing breakfast or any other dish while you are seated on one of the two bar chairs or sitting on the couch and watching TV. We bought a new TV 47 ' wide in April 2014 also a new DVD player from which you can order on Netflex your own films. In the first week of June 2014, we installed a new Dream Sleeper Air Mattress Queen Size for the pullout couch in the living room and I tried it out myself. You don't feel the bars any more and it feels like heaven. Finally, we found THE solution for this sleeper couch.
We renewed the older dark green fabric on the couch last year by a bright yellow pattern with butterflies on it. What a difference new upholstery makes! We can pull the cover off the cushions, put these in the washing machine and they come out new and clean and ready for you to sit on again. If you are covered in sunscreen, we provide also a big 100 % cotton through in red so you still can sit on the couch, because I can wash it every time.
Last year in the Fall we installed a reading lamp and now you can read one of our books or have a game together with other family members. One guest mentioned they liked to have binoculars and so we fulfilled their wish and you can use them also watching dolphins playing in the ocean and birds flocking on the beaches.
We like to mention that we always redecorate and improve our condo with the help of your personal input if you suggest omething you would like to see and use.
At Christmas time 2013, four very friendly Ladies went to the former Hotel now Museum of the family Plant in Tampa - now part of the Tampa University compound. They visited the outstanding displays of old artifacts, photos, guest books, Christmas lights and decorations, etc. - and they brought back a copy of the Newspaper Tampa Bay Area from 1891. We framed these two pages and put them on display in our condo for everybody to admire.
Our condo offers also two bedrooms, the Master Bedroom has a King Size Bed and the second bedroom has two Twin Size beds, which convert to a King Size bed also, if you wish to do so. Adjacent to the Twin Bedroom is one bathroom with the normal size bathtub/shower, a commode and a hand washbasin with granite counter top. The bathrooms are equipped with enough towels and extra two big beach towels with the logo from Treasure Island. You can use the hair dryers in each bathroom and if you like, put a white kimono style bathrobe on and relax on the big balcony. Four bathrobes are available.
The second bathroom is bigger and is located more in the center of the condo, closer to the living room and kitchen. This bathroom has also a normal size bathtub/shower, a commode, a hand washbasin with the granite counter top and a second hair dryer. Again, you will find enough towels for your personal use and also another set of two big Beach Towels. We provide rainbath refreshing shower and bath gel from Neutrogena. You Just have to Bring Your Own Toothbrush and your personal items.
Your NEW PARADISE FOUND in Treasure Island is situated DIRECTLY on the beach and is in SOUTH BEACH CONDO HOTEL. No other building or palm tree or even a street lamp will obstruct your view.
Wireless High Speed Internet Access is FREE!
PARKING on the premises is FREE!
We like to mention just a few more items we renewed lately:
New Refrigerator with glass shelves
New quiet Dryer and New Washer (Oct. 2012/June 2013)
4 comfortable beach chairs and a sun umbrella
NEW Red wagon/cart to take to the beaches.

We, Peter and Monika Gewecke, are the owners since 2006 and since then we manage and rent our condo only ourselves. No Management is involved, we do really everything ourselves with the help of some professional companies for the work and repair we are not able to do.
The building itself was constructed in 2000/2001 and remodelled and updated in 2005. There are all together 40 units on six floors, but only 10 corner units with 2 bed/2 bathrooms with 925 sq Ft and the big balcony of 100sq Ft facing the beaches with full view to accommodate up to 6 guests, best suited for 2 - 4 adults and 2 smaller children.
Amenities in WALKING DISTANCE: This CORNER vacation condo is situated DIRECTLY on the BEACH on the 5th floor and look at the photos, this is what you really see sitting on the balcony from where you can enjoy the most ROMANTIC SUNSETS. We take all these photos ourselves, so this is what you see and NO MANIPULATION is done.
On April 06, 2013, The New Beach Trail was opened and built by the City of Treasure Island. The new $ 1,2 million trail now meanders through Treasure Island's dune system parallel to the Gulf of Mexico behind our condo building, with more than 20 beach access nodes along the path linked to street entrances along Gulf Boulevard. Turtle-friendly lighting lines the trail and decorative nautical images are embedded, through a sandblasting technique, into the tan and ruby-red concrete. One of the best features of the new trail is the sand wall, capped with a bench top, which provides a nealry milelong seat along the Gulf of Mexico.
You can stroll along water's edge to famous JOHN'S PASS VILLAGE with all the diversity you can imagine; many different RESTAURANTS, a Gamble Ship, para-gliding or para-sailing, boat- or water scooter rentals and you can even rent a bicycle and explore the neighborhood.
On the beach with MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT is 'Sloppy Joes' and different pizzerias, cafes and more restaurants, newly opened is Feola's Italian Ristorante situated along the walkway.
PUBLIX opened a fancy store for groceries and everything you need for a relaxed vacation here in Treasure Island..
New restaurants opened in January 2014 in walking distance and also a New BEACH SHOP with an Ice cream parlor. A BUS STOP is on Gulf Boulevard close by and you are invited to take a stroll by bus from CLEARWATER BEACH to PASS-A-GRILL, approx. 35 miles along our beaches for about $ 1.50 per person..
Attractions in DRIVING DISTANCE : If you like to explore the CITY OF ST. PETERSBURG, we recommend to drive to the PIER, about 25 minutes from your vacation condo, which reopened in January 2014. At the end of the PIER stands a very unique building with five floors - it looks like a reverse PYRAMID. There are ongoing discussions how to improve this landmark and we will see what the future will bring .
Also in downtown are different very interesting Museums,i.e. the NEW DALI Museum with changing additional exhibits, the NEW CHIHULY Glass blowing COLLECTION and the History Museum with the FIRST COMMERCIAL AIRLINE in the United States flying across Tampa Bay in 1921 between St. Petersburg and Tampa. The INTERNATIONAL ART MUSEUM with a coffee shop just opened a new wing, overlooking Tampa Bay.
There is Straub Park to stroll along and you find many new and exquisite shops, small galleries, cafes and restaurants to sit outside - just get the Floridian Feeling! DALE CHIHULY opened an exquisite gallery only with his outstanding glass works.
As a Day Trip recommendation from us would be to drive over to Tampa and visit Tampa Aquarium, Busch Gardens with all the exciting adventures, Lowry Zoo or further to Orlando with the Disney Attractions. It will take you about one to two and a half hours driving time to get there.
Tampa International Airport will get a facelift and an International South American Airlines flies directly from Tampa to Panama.
The Port of Tampa is getting more important also. From there many different Cruise Lines cruise to the different islands in the southern hemisphere.

                      Car: Recommended

                      Treasure Island has the most beautiful wide Beaches with bright white sand along the coastline in Pinellas County. Our coastline starts at Clearwater Beach on the northern point of the islands and goes along till Pass-A-Grill the most southern destination, 34 miles all together over a couple of bridges.

                      From our condo you walk for hours and miles without crossing any street and there is no traffic allowed at all on our beaches.

                      I like to point out that also dogs are not allowed on the beaches, only on a leach in company of an adult on the walkways.

                      Grocery Shopping at Publix is a pleasure, because it is only 5 minutes away by car, as well as Walgreen's is so close by.

                      For your additional exploring - about 20 minutes by car south from us - is Fort de Soto National Park. In this park which is located on the mouth of Tampa Bay, you can admire nature pure. If you like you can explore the old Fort, built in 1898, but was never active. There are some old canons on display and the whole area is part of old Floridian History.

                      Many Restaurants of different tastes are in walking distance from the condo.

                      Besides this, there is John's Pass, a tourist friendly village also in walking distance along the shoreline. It will take you about 15 minutes walking from our condo building. John's Pass has about 200 different shops and a couple of restaurants for you to explore. There is also a board-walk, from which you can admire wild playing dolphins while drinking a cup of coffee or tea or having an ice-cream.

                      The New DALI Museum about the Spanish extraordinary artist Salvadore Dali opened in January 2011 in downtown St. Petersburg and is spectacular already from the outside. Another First Class Museum is the world glass artist Dale CHIHULY from California.

                      St. Petersburg is a beautiful and very unique city of about 250.000 inhabitants, situated directly on Tampa Bay with new condo buildings and also old and historic different hotels. It is really worthwhile to walk around the park and have a seat in one of the many restaurants.

                      Other Activities here on our beaches are: Skite Flying, Sand Sculptures, Sun Bathing, and there is something for everybody to do.

                      Golf and Tennis: For you and your family, we can offer in Treasure Island the 'Treasure Bay' public Golf and Tennis Courts for reasonable prices. The Golf course has 9 holes and there are 10 claylike tennis courts. This facility is located on the Intracoastal Waterway with wide views over the water and even in summer there is always a breeze which makes it easy for all guests to play outside.

                      Shopping: Close by is Tyrone Mall, where you find International and national suppliers, like H & M, Macy's, etc. and also different restaurants to relax after the shopping tour.

                      About 30 minutes south, close to Sarasota, is the Outlet Mall Ellenton with hundreds of shops and many different restaurants. Enough temptation for everybody.

                      Treasure Bay Public Club to play Golf and Tennis with very reasonable prices. The Gulf Course has 9 wholes and the Tennis Club has 8 courts with Har True, no hard courts. This community club is beautifully situated on the tip of the Intracoastal Waterways.


                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: We are a family of four and are originally from Germany. When Peter retired in 1994, we decided to replace our home in Germany/ Berlin and Duesseldorf to live here in Florida, in Treasure Island. Peter is my husband of almost 46 years, now I am the smallest in the family, as you can see in this photo taken in 2012. Markus is our older son and Stefan is our younger son. Only Peter and I live here and our sons and their families live and work in Germany. They all come and visit us, when their time allows them to do so. We, as parents, have more time and we fly regularly to Germany to visit them. We love our new primary home on Isle of Capri in the City of Treasure Island, where we met many wonderful people and became friends with many of them and we have also a good neighborhood. I am an avid League tennis player hitting the tiny yellow balls in my free time. Besides this, our main goal is our business/condo rental and, of course, you as our guests. We live almost year round here in Treasure Island to take the time and pride to give you an outstanding service.

                      Why the Owner Chose Treasure Island:
                      We bought this condo, which is a CORNER unit on the 5th floor out of 6 floors, with direct views from every window to the beaches and to the horizon, the Gulf of Mexico. It has 925sq Ft and a big balcony of 100sq Ft in full view of the beaches and facing the beaches and is fully furnished to the best of our own European/Floridian taste. Being Directly situated on the beach, this condo is airy, bright and with light colors in white and yellow being the dominant colors.and you can enjoy the most amazing sunsets from the big balcony facing the beaches. Each time we are over in the condo ourselves, we take the time to sit on the love seat and enjoy a drink, could be coffee or a glass of water or even better a glass of wine. It depends how much time we have to get the condo ready for you, as our new guests. Before we choose to live here in Florida, we travelled around the world to many different countries, but we also wanted to own a part of this beautiful wide beach here in Florida's most calm and sunny part of the world. On a very private note: I was Stewardess with Air Canada and stationed in Montreal and in Toronto and spent my vacation at that time in Treasure Island. Yes, I really did this and I fell in love with this place. I married my husband Peter, lived in Germany many years and after Peter retired as a Chemical Engineer we both decided, after spending a couple of vacations in this part of Florida, to stay here for our retirement. Now we are trying to give the fascination for this area to you, as our guests.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      This condo building has a fantastic name: SOUTH BEACH CONDO HOTEL and this is how it really looks from the outside. The first impression you get are the Three Distinctive Colors outside on the facade: light GREEN, corn color YELLOW and a soft VIOLET. It is so outstanding, everybody knows this building! Really South Beach Colors! In 2004/05 the whole building was refurbished and updated with granite counter tops, new appliances and we always re-decorate and update the furnishing and window decorations throughout the different rooms. We really fell in love because of the location. Location is a must directly on the beach, no neighbors disturbing your views and a quiet and serene surrounding. You only hear the waves from the Gulf of Mexico while sitting on the balcony and sometimes the enjoyment and fun from the kids swimming in the pool.
