              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: We live in the northeast 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 our 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 dozens of 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 feel our pool is also one of the best on Isla compared to most others. We find it so relaxing. As one of our guests put it ' we scoped around that whole area and nothing compared to Isla'. You have a landlord that cares about you and your comfort and that is why we are always constantly making improvements and sets our unit apart form many others.

              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 a much higher price per night and a crowded pool w/ no chairs! Our unit has every amenity you could ever ask for! And go right ahead--if you don't see something-tell us about it-we make changes a few times a year! 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 personal hobby-it will always be a tasteful, an updated condo. We have many guests who come back year after year. Now that says it all!
