ReviewsWrite a review
Following an eventful cruise, where my mother sustained a few injuries, walking into the condo was a perfect tonic. It is so gorgeous and comfortable with stylish décor throughout. The Master is just fantastic and I could have stayed in the bed for the duration of our stay! Sitting watching the waterlife is a great way to spend an afternoon, and is close to many amenities. If we return to this area we are re booking!! Thanks to Jay & Kim for everything

Owner response: Thank you to our guests from Scotland for this terrific review. We are so happy to know that they have enjoyed our condo at Isla Del Sol. We have been fortunate to share our condos with guests from all over the world and look forward to welcoming them again. Many have returned year after year to enjoy the comfort and beauty of the condos and surroundings.
The minute we walked into the condo we just loved it! It is bright, spacious and spotlessly clean. The first thing we did was go out on the balcony to admire the view and we were treated to a performance by a 6 dolphins - what a show! The view is spectacular - there is something to see on the waterway all the time. The balcony is very private and furnished really well with chairs, tables and a lounger - I was perfectly happy to stay there, read a book and watch the activity on the waterway! Sunsets from the balcony are incredible. The condo is beautifully decorated and well stocked with linens, towels and kitchen items. A very nice touch was the baskets of misc. things under the sink - things you may have forgotten to bring with you but were there for you to use. We really loved the master bathroom that was recently renovated. It was definitely a "wow"! The pool and Club House were also beautiful - both very clean and well maintained. The grounds are lovely and also well maintained - there is always someone working on them. Kim and Jay have a beautiful, comfortable condo. I can't think of one thing about it that wasn't perfect. We had a great stay and will definitely be returning some time in the near future. Thanks again, Kim and Jay!

Owner response: This wonderful review highlights the many amazing features and amenities of our condo! We are especially pleased with our brand new master bathroom and happy to hear that our guests enjoyed it too. Our single most important goal is to continue to provide a beautiful, comfortable and well-maintained condo for our guests to enjoy a perfect vacation.
One of the most important things about a vacation is where you will stay. Our 9 days here was like paradise. The condo was perfect. Every amenity we could want or need in such a place. The privacy was here. With a balcony on the bay we could enjoy 'water' 24 hours a day. The best thing about the condo (and there are many wonderful things) was the privacy. Boats sailing through could not come to close but were close enough to observe the beauty. It was all very quiet and serene. We did have the opportunity to see dolphins, many birds, sea life. I don't know how many times we looked down from our balcony into the water and exclaimed, "Look, Wonder what that is". Outside of the condo we enjoyed my sons beautiful wedding in St. Petersburg, Pass A Grill beach, Treasure Island beach, sail boating on the Boca Ciega bay, the luxurious pool and hot tub at the facility, a variety of wonderful restaurants including Billy's Stone Crab (taking advantage of the Oct 15 start of stone crab season. YUM!) My favorite 'little' amenity in the condo was the little picture books on the history of the Don CeSar and Pass A Grill. My husband and I especially loved the quieter beach of Pass A Grill with easy access from the island. We both agree, it was the best vacation ever. Thank you Jay and Kim for sharing your very special, lovely hideaway in Paradise. J&C

Owner response: It means so much to us when we receive fantastic reviews like this one. It is our goal to provide a perfect paradise for our guests. Our guests have enjoyed the wonderful amenities such as the huge west-facing balcony with complete privacy and amazing views! We have a very well-stocked kitchen which is always appreciated in a vacation property. We manage our properties personally and attention to detail is a priority. Our guests will enjoy a vacation property that is well maintained, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Many thanks to our guests who have visited, and a warm welcome to those who wish to visit in the future!
Feeling like home - instantly!
Feeling like home - instantly!
When you travel to a new place it could create a certain level of nervousness - will it be OK? Will it looks like the pictures show? Will your family like it and be happy to stay? It becomes even more sensitive, when you once experienced your wife crying after entering a certain apartment (in Italy). Entering the Jay's & Kim's place at Isla was like coming to your own place. The reality is better than the photos. You immediately feel there was a warm heart involved in the furnishing, not just the calculator and economy. The sea / birds / shells theme flows gently through the whole condo like the sailboats in the channel oposite the balcony. And there is everything you can imagine - I speak about entertainment (tons of dvds & vhs, home cinema, board games, books, wifi), kitchen (think of anything, it is there ;-), you forget to buy coffee filters - it was there, you need the pinch of peperoncino for the dinner dish - it was there. The beach life is supported by two beach seats, two beach beds, sun umbrella, small & big coolbox, foam needles and beautiful beach towels. Beds & linens are great and remain an inspiration for our home too! Now we come to the most belowed place of the condo and it is the balcony - fantastic place to enjoy the food, drink the coffee, read the book, smoke the cigar, watch the dolphins (many many times), pelicanes hovering above the water (zillions), yachts and sailboats passing by, storms & lightnings far in the Gulf, clouds magically painted by sunset. The shadow makes it great place till the afternoon, but the sun-lovers would enjoy it all day long - my wife told me she would have loved to stay there whole and every day. But there are so many attractions around ;-) If you do not have the time googling it before arrival, do not worry, there is a great binder, where you can find all possible and nice attractions around - do not miss Adventure Speed Boats at Tierra Verde, fun! Another binder sums up all info about the condo and answers to all practical questions you may have. The whole Isla is magical and neat, calm and secure, well maintained, nice to walk around, great to play golf. Both Jay and Kim were very helpful before the arrival and during our stay. We can only thank them to be a part of our fantastic holiday at Isla & Florida, to share their magical place with us and help us to feel really great! Thanks for all our family and we hope to come back soon!

Owner response: We thank our guests for this wonderful review and for taking such great care of our condo. The review was so eloquently written. It highlights the many features of our condo, the attention to detail that we have paid, in order for our guests to arrive and know that they will have a wonderful vacation. It is rewarding and heart-warming to know that our efforts to anticipate our guests' needs and wishes were much appreciated. Once again, thank you. We look forward to your return.
Great Condo, Great Location, but Beware of the Owners!
Great Condo, Great Location, but Beware of the Owners!
We stayed at this condo from 8/1 - 8/11 this year and overall had a wonderful time. I am from St.Pete and come down several times a year to visit family and help my father with his business. When my family accompanies me we typically stay at the Don Cesar or Tradewinds but were contemplating buying a place at Isla Del Sol so we wanted to check it out first hand. Our trip started off great as the gentleman next to me on our flight works at the Isla golf club and provided me a complimentary round of golf which was a fun nice course. The condo is very nice in a fantastic location right on the water and next to the club. Everything is very comfortable and the kitchen is well stocked. We made good use of the pool and met several of the other owners who were all very friendly and we actually attended a small dinner party at one of their condo's one evening which was very fun. Security was very visible and friendly. They were also very helpful in arranging a small get together in the clubhouse one evening for several of my friends I've known since kindergarten. The club house is a great place for gatherings. All in all I recommend this condo but we were greeted with quite the surprise a couple of weeks after we departed. The owners are very detail oriented and provide specific instructions for use and closing the condo. I also have several properties I rent via VRBO and do the same so I appreciate the detail. One of the rules is not to leave the sliding door open which my wife disregarded on numerous occasions and after the fact we found out that my daughter broke a decorative pelican. For these violations I clearly expect to lose some security deposit. However the owners felt compelled to blatantly lie about several other items claiming we damaged their condo which were not true. Among those were "wedging" something in the front door to break it, placing dirty dishes in the cabinets, "using too many towels", stealing one king flat sheet (very odd?), "excessive sand in the condo", and were even upset that we went out of our way to return a beach towel we found in out car the last day. I could care less about the money but really wish the owners would simply raise the rent on the condo instead of accusing guests of doing things they didn't do for a few extra bucks. So my only advice is to plan to lose some of your deposit and its still a great deal. Good news is we put a contact on a condo labor day so I guess we are now neighbors. See you at the pool!

Owner response: We would like to thank our guests for the review above. We appreciate they enjoyed our condo and beautiful surrounds which has been articulated very well in their review. We did express our disappointment to our guests after their departure. Leaving the balcony doors open with the air conditioning on (in 90° weather) for the majority of their stay is one example of the care they provided. Having stayed at our condo prior to our guests’ arrival and after our guests’ departure, we were able to validate the damage, additional cleaning and other rental agreement deficiencies. This was summarized, communicated and subsequently deducted from the security deposit as our guests indicated (Additional air conditioning charges were not). It is unfortunate we had to take the action we did, as this treatment of our condo has not been typical of our other guests. We will let our remaining reviews speak for themselves and continue to welcome future guests to Isla.

Dear Jay and Kim, Travelling around, you find many nice places, but a few of them, where you immediately feel like home. Your place is definitely THE ONE! We had a great time at your condo during our superb holiday here! Thanks a lot!

Fabulous stay at Club Bahia
Fabulous stay at Club Bahia
We stayed at this 2-bed condo for a week in early June 2013 with our two young children (aged 3 and 4). During our stay, there was maintence work being carried out on the usual swimming pool, so we were given access to two other pools, both in easy walking distance (about 2mins!) from the condo. Upon arrival: We found the condo, parking space and keys easily. We then explored the condo - a utility room, breakfast area, dining area, kitchen, lounge, balcony, 2 bedrooms (one inc an en-suite) and family bathroom. Everything was spotlessly clean, tidy and finished to a very high standard (wonderfully thick fluffy towels of 5* hotel standard for example). The children loved their bedroom and we were very impressed with ours (for any English folk - the walk-in wardrobe in the master bedroom is the size of a standard childs bedroom in the UK!). The owners called us during the first evening to check we had arrived and everything was ok. General condo stuff: The condo was a great base. During our stay, we had many meals out on the balcony (which, mercifully, is in the shade for b'fast and lunch, so away from the real hot heat of the day) watching dolphins play and manatees swim past. It was a very special place to watch the sun go down. The condo is spacious and very well equipped, with every home comfort needed to make the stay a pleasant and enjoyable experience. The photos don't really do justice as to how relaxing the condo is! The fab swimming pool has plenty of chair/sunloungers, though some of the residents are sticklers for the rules (i.e. our 3yr daughter was banned from playing with her blow-up dolphin (rule 11), even though there was no one else in the pool!) Things to do nearby: Having a car is essential (think this is pretty standard for America) and there are plenty of local amenities nearby. Publix is a great little supermarket (though comparable to the UK, the fresh fruit/veg dept is very small). Larry's (just down from Publix, opposite from St Pete's beach) is fab for ice creams, don't be put off by the somewhat dated decor. Fort Desoto is wonderful for kayaking. We had a very close experience with a wild manatee - incredible and absolute highlight of holiday for my hubby. We also did a dolphin trip further up the coast which guarantees you'll see dolphins, and we did. Overall, this is a great place, pretty much without fault. We would absolutely recommend this condo and would love to make another trip out there.

Wonderful Vacation 2013
Wonderful Vacation 2013
Stayed at Club Bahia for three weeks during May. The whole family had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed the condo tremendously. The condo is very spacious and the owners have done a fantastic job on the decor, very warm and bright ......... great Florida colors. The large balcony so close to the water provided us with a magnificant view of the dolphins, boats sailing by and beautiful sunsets. This condo is most definitely located in a great place at Isla Del Sol. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area. We also liked the fact that the very large outdoor pool is easily accessible from the condo without having to use the elevator. The owner's Kim and Jay were very accommodating with any of our queries and I would definitely recommend the property to friends and relatives. Hoping to visit again next year.

Why the Owner Chose Isla del Sol:
My husband and I have been vacationing in the St. Pete Beach area for the past 25 years. We have fond memories of many family vacations. Our children have grown to love this place as much as we do. We have spent many hours walking along the beach. There is something so soothing and relaxing about being next to the water and enjoying the sound of the gentle waves. Our plan is to continue to vacation here when possible while offering our condo to you as a vacation rental. We have decorated our unit with pride, while always considering your comfort and enjoyment too.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
There are many things that we love about the St. Pete Beach area. We want to share just a few of them with you. First of all, the climate is terrific year round. The atmosphere is friendly and laid back. The beaches are some of the best anywhere. We love to walk and have found that the beaches here are wide and long and allow for us to walk or jog comfortably. There are many restaurants nearby which offer good food, reasonable prices and wonderful water views. We love Pass-a-Grille. It is a sleepy little historic part of St. Pete beach with a Key West feel without the crowds. It is just a couple of minutes from our condo. There is a wonderful promenade along the water. The sunsets are ceremoniously celebrated each evening with the ringing of the bell. This takes place on the beach at the Paradise Grill where we have enjoyed the live music on Friday nights. The list goes on. We’re sure you will enjoy your stay here and will want to return year after year. Welcome!
