                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: I have been visiting America and Florida for at least 35 years. I was married to Sue in 2006 on St Pete Beach at the Don Ce Sar hotel.We bought the condo a result of our having 2 U.K homes when we met. We think of our Florida property as a second home and is furnished and maintained to the highest standards

                      Why the Owner Chose Isla del Sol:
                      A friend of ours spent almost 2 years searching for the perfect location on the west coast of Florida.She invited us to holiday with her and we fell in love with Isla Del Sol.Our first condo was a 1 bed in tower without a water view. On one of our visits we walked around the sea wall around the island (very therapeutic) and we saw where 209H was situated and we knew we had to buy there.We subsequently bought and renovated our condo to a very high standard.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      The wildlife to be see in and around St Pete and Fort De Soto are incompairable.With the sea wall being only 10 yards away, with the advantage of luxury elevated seating on the balcony, an uninterrupted view of dolphins, manatees, ospreys etc can be seen. The fishing dock is 50 yards away. The shops on both Isla De Sol and Tierra Verde are within strolling distance as is the Isla Del Sol Country club and Marina where tennis is included in the attractions
