This condo is of exceptional value! The condo is bright and the layout is very accommodating for larger parties such as ours. We are a family of 5, all adults and we really enjoyed this lovely space and never felt crowded at any time. This condo is exceptionally clean and is decorated like that in a magazine. The kitchen is stashed with every appliance that one would desire to make one's stay more desirable. There is plenty of room to move around and the open concept kitchen/ dining is very inviting. The rooms are large and there was lots of storage space to store our suitcases and personal effects. The only downside to this condo would be the size of the water tank. It is a condo and storage space for a larger hot water tank is limited. We learned quickly to juggle our shower times. Once we figured this out we really enjoyed the luxurious bathroom spaces. All amenities as listed in the description were nice to have at our disposal, especially free internet, cable and long distance. There were books, board games and movies to enjoy on a rainy day. What more could one ask. We loved the location. It took 10 minutes to walk across the old bridge to the beach and then one could walk to their hearts desire on lovely St. Pete's Beach. The grounds itself are well kept and are quite large. One could walk there as well for a lovely morning or evening stroll. This condo is very close to the pool and hot tub which our family did enjoy. The pool is heated and is very quiet. There are lots of chairs to lounge in or simply stair at the inland waterways. The location even provides access to a beach if the walk to the main beach proved to be too long. It is quite near the main strip on Gulf Boulevard where access to stores and restaurants is plenty. The view from the balcony is gorgeous and will not disappoint. We are only hoping that this condo will be available when we plan our next vacation. The Billard Family of Ottawa. ON

We were looking for a tranquil setting, opportunities for leisurely walks and relaxation, but close enough to St. Pete that it would not be a burden to go back and forth. Allison's unit exceeded all expectations. The condo is beautifully furnished, as the pictures accurately demonstrate. We enjoyed walks around the property almost daily The immaculately landscaped grounds and water features made it a pleasure to do so (got a few jogs in as well). When I did go to downtown St. Petersburg, it was only a 15-20 minute drive. Allison is one of the most helpful and congenial property owners with whom I have ever had the privilege of dealing. She was prompt to answer all my questions, and did so graciously (she even went to the trouble to intervene with the internet service provider in my behalf one evening when I was having difficulty connecting to the wifi--the provider's technician called me back and resolved the issue that same evening). I would not hesitate to rent this unit again, and wholeheartedly recommend it to others.

Spacious,Comfortable, and Well-appointed
Spacious,Comfortable, and Well-appointed
We were so fortunate to discover this condo in Isla Del Sol. Our son was getting married and we needed a convenient location in order to easily commute to the airport, all pre-nuputial events, and the wedding venue in downtown St.Petersburg. Isla Del Sol provided that. Upon arrival we were most pleasantly surprised as to the spaciousness and beauty of the condo and its furnishings. The owner, Allison, must be an interior decorator; if not, she has the talent to be one or hired an incredibly talented one. The guest suite is absolutely beautiful; the attached bath is dressed in the best Kohler has to offer. The hardwood flooring was a most pleasing feature as it leant to the cleanliness of the space.The pictures on VRBO are truly indicative of the high end quality of this condo and the complex itself. The condo is bright with high ceilings and there is a beautiful view of the golf course off the balcony. A pool is a very short walk around the far end of the building. We were a party of six adults in this condo and we never felt crowded. We have rented using VRBO frequently over the last 7 years and we would have to say that this particular kitchen was furnished with absolutely any small appliance or utensil one could need. In short, we felt completely comfortable and functional in this condo which is a rare coupling. Whether your stay is short or long, you are living in the comfort of your home when you stay here. Enjoy.

Fantastic two bedroom where I gave my son and daughter-in-law the master and stayed in the smaller bedroom which had it's own ensuite. Great location, great walking, pools are wonderful and never crowded. Highly recommend and hope to return for a longer stay.

This was our first experience renting a condo in Florida and we could not have been more pleased. The condo was very clean, spacious, and tastefully decorated. The owner takes great care of the condo and it shows. The community of Bahia del Mar on Isla del Sol is truly a first class location and is conveniently located to St. Pete Beach and all the attractions of the St. Petersburg area. We enjoyed the close proximity to the beach, the heated pool, and the great variety of excellent restaurants in the area. The owner was a pleasure to work with and very responsive. We had a fantastic time and look forward to returning in the future!

Spring break family trip
Stayed in this condo on spring break and was pleasantly surprised. Very clean, well equiped and great location. I am very familiar with both Isla Del Sol properties and the area of St. Pete's beach and this condo definitely did not disappoint us. Overlooks the golf course, close to the pool and the grounds of Isla Del Sol are just beautiful. I hope my family and I are lucky enough to rent here again in the near future.

A Great Condo
A Great Condo
We fell in love with Isla del Sol several years ago. The location is great, the condo complex is a lovely, well-cared-for area. However, we had a number of disappointing experiences with various condos until we found this one. We were thrilled to find a place to spend a couple of winter months in a condo that is well taken care of, nicely decorated and most importantly, clean. The owner clearly cares for her property and wants to keep everything in tip top shape. We loved having new appliances, the convenient parking place, and all of the little extras that are provided. Keep up the good work. We look forward to our next visit.

The nicest condo I've been
The nicest condo I've been
We stayed in the condo on the week of Thanksgiving. Everything was perfect! The condo was very clean, professionally decorated, with everything we needed and more. We rented many different condos all over Florida, this one was the nicest! The owners were very helpful and quick with the response. The ocean wasn't as warm as I would like, but my boys enjoyed heated pool very much. This condo is very good for the family with kids: it has movies, games, fishing rods, etc. The kids' bedroom was far enough from the living room, so adults could watch TV without being afraid to disturb kids' sleep. The condo is located within 15 minutes from St. Petersburg's pier, Dali Museum, etc. Very close and convenient. If you are going to St. Pete area, I would definitely recommend this condo.

Superb condo in fabulous location!
Superb condo in fabulous location!
We have visted Isla for the last 18 years, so can highly recommend this fabulous location - with great beaches, shopping, & restaurants close by. This superb condo was all we expected and much more - the owner's description on this website is no exaggeration. It is spacious, very well decorated and very clean, with high quality furniture & furnishings. The new kitchen appliances were a most welcome addition to an already very well-equipped kitchen. The owner is very helpful & friendly and quick to respond to all communications. She is very proud of her property and with good reason. We consider this condo to be the best we have ever stayed at on Isla and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone considering the St Pete area for a vacation. We will definitely book again!

Guest comment entered by owner
My husband and I enjoyed two weeks at this lovely condo this March. It is spacious, freshly painted and newly furnished. The layout would be good for two couples as the bedrooms are at opposite ends with separate baths. The kitchen is well equipped and we appreciated the small touches, soft soap and hand lotion in the baths and plenty of cleaning products. The flat screen TV's and unlimited phone plan were added bonuses. Located on Isla del Sol we found this mature setting with immaculate grounds, palms, ponds and scenic bay views perfect for daily walks. It also is close to beaches and St. Petersburg.

About the owner: We live in CT but look forward to the warm weather after living up here in the cold our whole lives. We are both professionals- an executive banker and the other half enjoys a long time career with a major utility. I handle all my own bookings personally and wouldn't have it any other way.
Why the Owner Chose Isla del Sol:
We wanted a home away from home!Isla del Sol is the best central location in the St. Pete Gulf area. We also love the location on Isla-the Bahia section is so well manicured and the landscape is unbeatable. Vista Verde West gives us it all and we looked at many units on Isla--we have a much more spacious condo with two bedrooms that mirror two master suites-the master bath is huge like at home. The livingroom is wider and open, high ceilings-not narrow like many we saw. It's so private and quiet where we are-again unlike other Isla condos. But yet so close to the bay-yards away and so close to the drawbridge to the beach. Our balcony view is also gorgeous. We get the morning sun and the evening breeze-having trees near us and the 8th green right in front of us. And the pool-love it-with restrooms right there and it's never crowded. We find it so relaxing. As one of our guests put it ' we scoped around that whole area and nothing compared to Isla'.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We have the best of both worlds here. You can go down the strip where the hotels are for dinner or beach, any day, all day if you want but go home to luxury not just a cramped hotel room that has nothing to offer but the same price per night and a crowded pool w/ no chairs! We love going to the beach, jet-skiing, fishing, swimming, golfing, boating-love the location-on the gulf! You could never run out of fun things to do here or places within your reach! Yet, you can sit back on our balcony, lay on the couch, or sit at the pool or even take a walk on the premises and feel the peace and tranquility. Our unit in particular is updated and clean and we will keep it nice for a much desired condo for you, our guests and for us. It's larger than most on Isla-large bathrooms and showers-open concept with high ceilings-so close to St. Pete Beach-walk out the front door and walk across the parking lot to the bay etc. The balcony is so relaxing-we can sit there all night sometimes sipping our wine. The furniture is all new-cozy comfort. We chose top of the line mattressses and we've added all the extras. It's a great location on Isla. We love the peace and quiet! Longer term rents (monthly-mult. months) are welcome! Don't wait to book-this is already a highly requested unit! Location, location, location! We are at your service-let us know how we can make your stay the best! As a landlord, I always make myself available to my guests. You can count on that! Decorating is my hobby-it will always be a tasteful, an updated condo.
