Treasure Island condo description
This is the ONLY property we rent and 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.
Your NEW PARADISE FOUND in Treasure Island is situated DIRECTLY on the beach and is in SOUTH BEACH CONDO HOTEL. This is a CORNER unit on the 5th floor with 925sq Ft living area and a big balcony of 100sq Ft, from which you can enjoy stunning views from every single room over the white sandy beaches to the Gulf of Mexico. No other building or palm tree or even a street lamp will obstruct your view.
Behind our condo building with only 40 units, the city of Treasure Island rebuilt the walkway in between the beaches and our gardens, just for pedestrians or joggers. No cars or motorcycles are allowed neither on this path nor on the beaches. It meanders along and especially when it is getting dark, the lights are very dim not to disturb the nesting turtles.
We refurnished the whole condo in 2013 and always update it with new appliances and new bedding. The whole kitchen got a facelift with new cabinets and a new refrigerator.
Wireless High Speed Internet Access is FREE!
PARKING on the premises is FREE!
New High Definition Flat Screen TV 42' with a DVD Player
New Refrigerator with glass shelves
New quiet Dryer and New Washer (Oct. 2012/June 2013)
4 comfortable beach chairs and your own beach wagon.
4 white Cover-Ups in Kimono Style for your personal use going to the pool.
Owners: Peter and Monika Gewecke: We 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 a big balcony of 100sq Ft 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.
On April 06, 2013, The New Beach Trail was opened. 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.
A Day Trip 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.

Perfect relaxation in the Floridian sun
Perfect relaxation in the Floridian sun
Dear Peter and Monika, thanks a lot for the possibilty of staying in your beautiful appartement in Florida. It is always so nice to have the opportunity to get away from cold and rainy Germany for some days, and all of a sudden be able to walk around in short pants and T-shirt. We felt at home from the very first moment, and had ourselves accustomed after only two days. We were very surprised to find a bottle of nicely cooled white wine in the refrigerator, what a nice welcome! After the description on your website, we had no trouble finding the appartement. At first, we were a little bit afraid, that we would have to carry our luggage to an upper floor, but were happily surprised to find an elevator. The appartement was clean and comfortable and fully equiped with everything we needed, even some teebags for a warm drink in the evening. The pictures are not lying! We had beautiful sunsets in the evenings, and even after the sun had gone down, enjoyed sitting on the balcony in the warm Floridian night. After having stayed for a couple of days, we got to know the beach a little bit better, and were surprised to find, that it really is the nicest just in front of the condo. Only here the beach is wide and I just needed to take the elevator down and walk another five minutes to jump in the water. One day we went to John´s Pass and rented Jet Skis, what great fun we had! Driving around in the car, we did some sighseeing, went to the shopping malls and downtown St. Petersburg. We would definitely recommend this condo to friends, we are already planning our next trip to florida, this time bringing friends of us along. This first time, we were just the two of us, but the condo provides enough room for friends of us to stay in their own bedroom with bathroom. Dear Peter and Monika, thanks for your warm welcome and we hope to see you soon again, Nadège and Stefan

Perfect stay in beautiful condo
Perfect stay in beautiful condo
This has already been the third time, that we stayed in Monika and Peter's condo in Treasure Island, and again it was wonderful. The experience starts with the warm welcome of Monika, who greeted us at the door and showed us around personally. There was even a bottle of white wine, that we enjoyed in the evening when we sat on the balcony and watched the awesome sunset. With this condo, you get what you expect and even a little more: a nice, friendly and well equipped apartment that provides you with everything you need. And on top of that you quickly get this feeling of familiarity, for us it's already like coming home. The description was 100 % accurate. The condo was clean and neat, it has this touch of extra care. Monika takes care of the condo herself and you can really see it in the many details that come from the heart. And also the service was excellent. We were able to reach Monika and Peter at any time by phone. Even when we were on our way to get to Treasure Island, we could reach Monika by phone and when we arrived at the condo some minutes later, she was already waiting for us at the apartment house. It is hard to say, what we liked best. Is it the sunsets that we watched from the balcony? Is it the pool, that belongs to the house? Is it the amazingly large beach right in front of the house, or is it the comfy condo? It's all together. We visited John's Pass, some 15 minutes by car, which has some nice floridian style restaurants and shopping facilities and provides tourist activities like dolphin watching or jetskiing. Big shopping malls are a little further off, but supermarkets and many good restaurants are just around the corner on Golf-Boulevard. We definitely recommend this condo to other visitors, and we will surely come back here whenever we get the chance.

Manager response: Dear Etienne and husband Alain, thank you so much for your kind and friendly review. We appreciate it very much, especially as we met you both personally and had a good and long chat about all your travels all over the world. You are really at home anywhere and as you are originally from France, we loved all the conversation we had and shared our own experiences. We also loved to hear from you that our condo is perfectly situated DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH and it is a CORNER unit with a lot of space, even for 4 adults and perhaps one or two smaller children. Our condo has over 925sq Ft and the big balcony of 100sq Ft from which you enjoyed the extra bottle of Champaign, an extra gift from us for the Special Occasion. We always offer a bottle of white from Germany or a bottle of red wine from France, just as to what is your personal preference. You went out in the morning to do some serious jogging on the beaches and the sand is hard enough to do some good running, also barefoot, as the water temperatures from the Gulf of Mexico are still tolerable for your feet, around 65 F - and this at Christmas time 2013. Thank you again for staying in our beautiful condo and we love to meet you again, Monika and Peter Gewecke

Manager response: Dear Chris and Dave, thank you very much for your wonderful comment and review. It was my pleasure meeting you and your husband and Peter and I are always very happy to make our guests happy. This is our main goal and I like talking to you, our guests, and hearing about your life and your experience travelling to other places on our planet, like you went to South America. Treasure Island and our condo are very close to our heart and we put all our effort in maintaining a very high standard and make constantly improvements, like a new picture I bought at the Art Show recently. We welcome you and your family back with open arms and we are looking forward to seeing you again in the future in our condo here on the beaches in Treasure Island. Monika and Peter
Christmas on Treasure Island
Christmas on Treasure Island
My family are now all adults and we wanted a different kind of Christmas. One that was about family and free of commercialism, So it was an easy choice to travel to Florida to see my aging parents and to have a reunion with other family members. I went about searching for just the right place. I knew I wanted something special and a hotel just wouldn't do. I wanted a beautiful Gulf view, a balcony, and two bedrooms(minimum) and two bathrooms. And since we intended to bond over our meals a nice kitchen was a MUST have. Besides the best cooks I know are the ones I love. My search became an obsession. I read reviews, e-mailed rental owners (waiting days for a response) and checked for available places for the right budget, Then I e-mailed Monika and she got back to me right away. That's when I knew...THIS IS IT! She was prompt with sending the lease. We had several e-mails She offered excellent customer service. On our day of arrival she met us at the condo. She welcomed us with open arms and showed us around. WOW, was all I could say. This place had everything I wanted and more. It's an open concept design so that the family can be together even when in the kitchen. And the gulf view is always in front of you. We defiantly took advantage of the balcony everyday. The interior design was great. A big screen TV, a comfortable sofa(we did not use it as a bed) a dining table, and plenty of lighting. The bedrooms were nicely decorated with lots of closet space and shelves. We all slept well since the beds were of good quality and very comfortable. The bathrooms were clean and had nice large soft towels. Then there are all the special touches we enjoyed, such as the washer/dryer, the extra quiet Bosh dishwasher, the nicely stocked kitchen with the special bottle of welcome wine, and the wagon we used to help bring luggage and groceries up and down. The location was perfect. Gulf blvd is a main street and has all you need. The new Pubilx is interesting. You park in a garage and take your cart in an elevator to 2nd floor. We also enjoyed putt putt gulf. Mostly we hung out and enjoyed the holiday with family. The best way to celebrate any holiday!

Manager response: Dear Karen and family from DE, Yes, this was friendship at first sight! You are such a warm and caring person and family, it was a pleasure meeting you all and chatting along. Thank you very much for your friendly and positive review, especially after I had some disappointing experiences. You told me that your husband is the cook in the family and you all love to prepare the food together which you did also for Christmas. After a friendly remark from you, I exchanged all pans and they are now all new and ready for the next family doing some cooking together. Peter and I discussed where to place our books, videos and family games and we found a perfect wall and installed a new ladder bookshelf in the living room next to the big armchair. We think this is a great improvement for the homely feeling for our guests. We hope to meet you again in our condo and we will welcome you again with open arms and big smiles. Happy New Year 2013, Monika and Peter
Fabulous Condo and Beach Vacation!
Fabulous Condo and Beach Vacation!
Dear Monika and Peter, Again your attention to every single detail for your guests is top of the line! You make our stay comfortable and so enjoyable! The view from the balcony is breathtaking and I could sit there and watch the surrounding beauty all day. Our daily walks on the beach always produce beautiful shells. We appreciate that Peter came over to meet with us personally during our stay. It is very apparent that you and Peter are completely sincere in wanting to make sure your guests are completely satisfied. We were so happy to see that this year there were beach umbrellas for our use and a wonderful wagon to haul everything to the beach for the day. This trip I brought my husband and 12 year old grandson and they enjoyed the condo and beach as much as I always do. It was so much fun to watch the children playing games in the pool all together even though a few of them spoke no english. When you are having fun there is no language barrier and it was a complete joy to watch the children (though they were all strangers to each other) play so well together. We are already planning our next trip. Thank you so much Peter and Monika for opening your lovely condo to us. We love it and highly recommend it to everyone we meet! Bunny, Pete and Jacob Dennison

Manager response: Dear Bunny, Pete and Jacob, Thank you so much for your excellent review of our condo. Yes, this time Peter, my husband, was there to meet and greet you personally, as I was still in Germany. Now, that I am back to the sunshine and good weather, I am so happy to hear that you had a fantastic vacation time with your family again in our condo. We are always looking forward to meeting you and the rest of your family, your mother and sister-in-law and niece again in our condo. You left our condo in excellent condition and our friend and our cleaning lady Valery was very happy, too. You also helped by washing the towels already and putting the linen to the side for her to be washed later. Thank you so much, dear Bunny, you are our perfect guests and friends by now, We are looking forward meeting you again next year and in the meantime we wish you and your family all the very best, Monika and Peter
Monika's lovely Condo on Treasure Island Beach
Monika's lovely Condo on Treasure Island Beach
My wife, son and I had a delightful time at the lovely 2-Bedroom Condo Corner Unit. Having been a travel agent and tour manager for 35 years it was not my first time in Florida on the west coast and Treasure Island. Some of these experiences have been better then others and the stay at this condo racks among the two or three best condos I have stayed at. THE situation is ideal, right on the beach, close to Publix (major grocery store, a 10 minute walk), the 24 hour Waffle House Restaurant right across the street and many other places within easy walking distance. THE condo itself was clean when we arrived with a bottle of wine greeting us on the kitchen counter. A nice touch!There was the beautiful view of the extensive beach from the good-sized balcony outfitted with inviting wicker furniture, a loveseat and 2 comfortable chairs with cushions. The living-dining room was nicely decorated with bright colours, a large sofa/bed, easy chair, a glass table with 4 chairs and a dimmer light over the table for romantic dinners. There was also a large TV. A side window gave extra light and a view up the beach. The kitchen was well equipped with a large fridge amd icemaker. A large stove plus microwave, dishwasher and other appliances one needs for great cooking. Lots of cutlery, plates and glasses etc.. The kitchen window also had a view of the beach and you could see the lift bridge at John's Pass when it was up.The main bath room was well outfitted with sink,tub, shower. The shower head worked fine as well as the exhaust fan and the drains. This was true of the ensuite bathroom in the second bedroom. (have often encountered bathrooms where this is a real problem as these items are rarely cleaned. The Master Bedroom boasted a huge king-size mattress and was one of the most comfortable beds my wife and I have slept in during our past travels. There was a smaller TV with DVD player and a view of the beach looking north. The second bedroom with 2 comfortable single beds on wheels and also a view of the north part of the beach completes the accommodations. In closing I would like to say that the condo was well supplied with all kind of sundries, too numerous to mention. Everything worked in the unit! There were 5 beach chairs and the wagon mentioned in the description was handy to have. Great to have the friendly owners close by to assist in every way. Thank you Monika and Peter. We hope to be back again.

Manager response: Dear Werner, Eleanore and Uri, thank you very much for your wonderful comment. When we met you, Werner and your family, personally in the condo and also in our home and even before our correspondence via e-mail, we always enjoyed talking to each other. Yes, we remember telling us about your experience during all your diverse travels that sometimes the experience staying in a condo or in a hotel is not as satisfying as when you stayed in our condo. We do not promise too much when we advertise that we are the owners and only we take care of our condo, especially I do the cleaning myself and the interior decorations are our personal European taste. We emphasize on the comfort for our guests and try to make your stay with us as memorable as possible. Thank you again and we are looking forward seeing you also with your other son Caleb in Treasure Island in our condo, escaping the cold winter in Canada and enjoying the warm sunshine. Monika and Peter

Manager response: Dear Maureen and husband, thank you very much for your friendly comment on our condo. You left our property in excellent condition and you are more than welcome to come back year after year. We also appreciate your beautiful wording in our private guest book in our condo. It is so much fun to have great guests like yourself who appreciate the location and all the facilities we offer. And - not to forget - this year the weather over Christmas was so perfect with 80 degrees F during the day and even the evenings with the amazing sunsets were still very comfortable with temperatures around 65 degrees F. Thank you again for staying in our condo and see you again next year, Monika and Peter
Best vacation ever-thanks Monika!
Best vacation ever-thanks Monika!
We had the best vacation ever staying at Monika & Peter's condo in Treasure Island. All of the former reviews are true and the pictures indeed are "what you see is what you get!" Starting with the property grounds, it's well-maintained and the staff are all very friendly. Two elevators help ensure one is always available when you need it! The pool was comfortably warm, hammocks are a nice touch-even wifi outside should you want to surf while lying in one! Even better with the pool is that they had a collection of pool toys available for kids and adults of all ages. Anyway, back to Monika's property. She personally meets you to introduce you to the unit and takes great care of her unit and it shows! Everything was clean and she had everything we could have possibly needed, except for the toothbrushes, of course! She had a beach umbrella available, cooler, towels, even a wagon for us to pull our 3 year old in... That helped us big time with the walk to the beach or the evening strolls along the boardwalk! The kitchen was modern, had everything you could need, the living room had a nice-sized LCD TV/DVD combo which was great, too! Beds were very comfortable, and bathrooms were fine. The balcony is spacious and offers amazing views and has privacy from your 1 side neighbor, too! Full-size laundry appliances were a huge help too as it allowed us to pack less and sure beats having to find quarters and walk to a shared laundry room! The best soft serve ice cream I've ever had in my life is at the "Shake Shop" - only a 5-10 walk away. The chocolate soft-serve tastes like a rich, creamy, chocolate mousse - not the traditional icy-watered down soft serve "dairy desserts" that other places sometimes taste like! Not sure what else we can say-Monika makes you feel like family - like an aunt we have 1200 miles away and hope to visit again in the future! Definitely recommend... Thanks again!

Manager response: Dear young family, Scott and Heidi and Jeremy, thank you for your very friendly and explicit review and also thank you for staying with us in our beautiful condo. We really like to encourage families with children to stay with us, as our condo is directly on the beach and there is no street or higher pass-over on our beaches in front of our condo building. You take the elevator down, walk through our lush gardens, cross the walkway and you put your toes in the warm and soft sand. You and your family can enjoy the wide beaches for as long as you can see and quite often we have bands playing on our beaches for FREE - for your entertainment. Please come and stay with us again, it was a lot of fun meeting you personally, Monika

Thank you Monika for allowing us to rent your beautiful condo last week @ SBCH in Treasure Island, FL. It was my mothers' first time in Florida and we wanted a nice place on the beach for her to stay with us. The views from the balcony were spectacular, morning to sunset. We enjoyed walking and shelling on the beach, also laying by the pool too. The condo is with in walking distance to everything in TI. ie restaurants, Publix market, Walgreen's and Johns Pass Landing! We especially like TI because of the "boardwalk-sidewalk" along the sand. Monika takes great care and pride in her condo, it's decorated beautifully, very clean and well stocked. My Mom loved the complimentary bottle of German white wine too! Thank you so much for making our stay so memorable Monika~ Can't wait to return for another visit!

Manager response: Dear Lori and family, I enjoyed meeting you personally very much and I like to point out, that you are travelling all across America from Washington State to our beaches in Treasure Island, because you mentioned they are the most beautiful beaches you have ever been to. This is really a big compliment to our area and also to our own condo being directly situated on these beaches. My husband Peter and I always take care of our condo ourselves and we pay attention to every detail. We love to see you back here in the future, together with your husband and your wonderful mother, celebrating Mother's Day again. For future guests I like to remind everybody, that our weather here in Treasure Island, Florida is really the best in the Spring, when the "Snowbirds" are still covered in "white stuff". October, November and December are our off-season months with lower prices, but in reality you can still swim in the Gulf of Mexico with water temperatures around78 F and the daily temperatues are still in the 75 - 85 F, especially in October and November. Come and enjoy our condo and meet us personally, Monika and Peter
Awesome Experience in Treasure Island
Awesome Experience in Treasure Island
Me and my friends decided to take a little vacation before our summer schedules consumed us. After finding this condo online we decided that Treasure Island would be the perfect place to get away and relax, and we were definitely right. As soon as we parked the car and started to wander the grounds at South Beach Condo, we quickly found two hammocks which were perfect after a 20 hour car ride. Once we saw the inside of the condo we realized that this was the best place for us. The views were spectacular and the condo was rather spacious so that with four people we were not cramped at all. The condo is perfectly located right on the beach and in walking distance of anything you need; restaurants, Publix, Walgreens, and Johns Pass is just around the bend. We had a great experience at this condo and I hope to return there in the future, I would suggest this condo to any and all of my friends and family.

Year Purchased: 2006
About: 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, and live here in Florida, in Treasure Island. Peter is my husband of almost 45 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 and visit them. We love our new primary home on Isle of Capri int the city of Treasure Island, where we made many wonderful friends. I am an avid League tennis player hitting the tiny yellow balls in my fun time. Besides this, our main goal is our business/condo and you, our guests becoming friends, and we live almost all year round here in Treasure Island to take the time and pride to give you an outstanding service.
Why 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 the horizon is the Gulf of Mexico. It has 925 sq Ft 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. Gorgeous views and each time we are over in the condo, we ourselves 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 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 this 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.
