Isla del Sol villa description

Enjoy your beautiful bay front view in comfort. The Pelican’s Cove is a fantastic end-unit villa with the best views overlooking Boca Ciega bay! So close to world famous beaches: Fort DeSoto, Pass-A-Grille and St. Pete Beach are all a short distance from home! This bright, clean villa boasts new carpet, fresh paint, a remodeled kitchen (June 2013) with Quartz countertops, and all new, comfortable furnishings. High speed and WiFi internet as well as unlimited long distance calling to US and Canada are included. The Boardwalk Pasta and Seafood restaurant (a local favorite!), the Tokyo Bay Japanese Restaurant, and Subway are a short walk down the road. We also supply a FL toll transponder as an added convenience that works on the three tolls surrounding Isla del Sol!

Walk a few steps from your covered parking spot to the front door of your villa on the same level. Outdoor stairs lead you down to a beautiful, ground level pool and the bike room. There's also convenient elevator access to get down to the ground floor if desired.

Interested in more than fantastic beaches and relaxing by the pool that gets sun all day? Then head to downtown to St. Petersburg, only 15 minutes away, for lively dining, museums, galleries, shopping, professional sports and more! You are only 30 minutes to Tampa: International airports, professional sports, fine dining and more! And it should go without saying that challenging golf courses are what this area is known for! If you are a golfer, the private Yacht and Country Club down the street offers summer guest memberships May - September. We can provide you with basic info if you're interested in this. Clearwater and Sarasota are also about a 40 minute drive and Orlando, Disney World, or Busch Gardens make a great day trip!

We know there are quite a few options to stay on our wonderful island, Isla del Sol, but there are not many with the prime location, serene views, and owners who take pride in their villa and have spent much time and resources making it as comfortable and convenient as possible for our guests. We want The Pelican’s Cove to be your home away from home. We look forward to having you!.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  Why the Owner Chose Isla del Sol:
                  This lovely condo/villa has been affectionately named 'Pelican's Cove' by its owners (a mother, son, daughter and son-in-law) because these beautiful birds seem to love hanging out in the waters right below our balcony! We live and work in the Chicago area where the weather is generally less than ideal so many of our vacations were spent along the gulf coast of Florida. It turned out that the St Petersburg area became our favorite destination; Julie actually met her husband there and their beautiful wedding took place at the Don CeSar hotel! We have remodeled and totally refurbished our unit with the comfort and happiness of our guests in mind. We want you to spend your 'best vacation ever' at the Pelican's Cove and want to make sure that you love our villa so much that you reserve your time with us year after year! My family and I look forward to welcoming you to this wonderful vacation retreat and invite you to contact us with any questions that you may have. Hope to hear from you soon! Nick, Jenny, Mark, and Julie

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  We fell in love with the views from the first time we saw the property. Relax on the balcony, sofa, any of the beds and enjoy the peaceful water views and watching the boats and sea birds. Walk along the shore at low tide and around the quiet golf club community.
