What is not to love about this luxurious 2275 sq. Condominium? Built in 2003, the unit has many upgrades not typical of beachside living. From the ceramic tile flooring throughout, the modern kitchen with granite countertops, and the lovely crown molding, this condo has all of the bells and whistles you could ask for on vacation. It features an open floor plan all overlooking the beautiful and pristine Gulf of Mexico. It has 3 full bathrooms! The living area features oversized and comfy furniture, a 54 inch flat screen TV, a DVD player and a DVR. There is even a wet bar off of the kitchen and a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer! The "backyard-like" balcony will become a favorite spot for relaxing and enjoying the breathtaking views of the beach. The Gulf Front master bedroom has sliding patio doors to the balcony, a king size bed, a walk in closet, and a lavish bathroom. The bathroom has a garden tub to soak in, a spacious shower, and a vanity area for putting on makeup. The other two bedrooms and bathrooms are also attractive and modern. Each condo is assigned two parking spaces which includes one spot in the garage. One of the most attractive aspects of this rental is that it has a cabana completely outfitted and ready to hit the beach or entertain. In the cabana you will find boogie boards, plenty of beach and lawn chairs and a refrigerator. With plenty of space and sleeping for six, this property offers a true luxurious dream vacation. La Contessa has a Gulf-side private pool area with 2 heated pools, spa, barbeque facility and an exclusive 250 foot pier, reserved strictly for the guests. This world class condominium complex is nestled on the pristine beaches of Pinellas County, between the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Boca Ciega Bay in the friendly, town of North Redington Beach. It is a small town with a quaint collection of local shops and restaurants. Almost a mile of beautiful sand slopes gently into the Gulf, which is perfect for swimming, shelling, sunning and strolling. There is a Winn Dixie grocery and liquor store approximately 2 miles south on Gulf Boulevard. A variety of deep-sea fishing charters, several casino cruises, dolphin watching nature tours, boat and wave runner rentals and parasailing are just a few of the activities available in North Redington Beach or offered in neighboring beach communities. These are services and amenities typical of a much larger city without the crowds, bustle and impatience. If you like homemade Italian food to shop for, eat in or take out, you have to visit a store called Mazzaro's, it is located at 2909 22nd Ave. in N. St Petersburg. It is a wonderful shop with cheeses, wines, meats, breads, pastries etc. The Lasagna is to die for. You also will not want to miss "Frenchies on the Beach" for lunch and if you go, you must try the She Crab Soup! Also for higher end dinners, there is The Middle Grounds Grill that is South on Gulf Blvd, past John's Pass drawbridge, (this is a cute place to shop but kind of touristy) on the left. There is also the Salt Point Grill North on Gulf Blvd about 4 miles and on the right.

About: Raised in central Florida with fathers working at the Kennedy Space Center, we both have a lifetime of fond memories of beach days, beach escapes, beach get-a-ways, and fun-filled family beach vacations. Our love of the ocean spans decades as does our romance. High school sweethearts (married for 27 years and counting) and fellow UF graduates, Jeff and Gina have four children. Jordan attends Orangewood Christian High School; Josh is at Winter Park High School, while Jake and Jared go to FSU. Jeff has owned an Allstate Insurance Agency since 1990, achieving the highest company award of Top in Country. He also did consulting for 4 years with both Allstate Corporate and individual agencies countrywide; streamlining processes, increasing production, incorporating inventive marketing, maximizing potential revenue, and stressing customer service. Soon after having their fourth child (4 in 4 years), Gina “retired” from her actuarial position to assist Jeff and raise their lively bunch. With a house full of teenagers, Gina likewise knows a thing or two about particular “customers”. We have built our home on faith, family, and fun; and strive to build our rental business on the same.
