Isla del Sol condo description

Wake up in the morning to views of dolphins and tropical birds from your master bedroom. This first floor, 2 bedroom condo, is 50 feet from the waters of Boca Ciega Bay, and has direct views of the water from the living room, dining room and master bedroom. You can eat dinner in a beautifully decorated dining room and after dinner relax on your patio while watching the sailboats and yachts pass by. When you get tired of sitting, you can take a short walk along the water to the pool and spa overlooking the bay for a refreshing swim. The pool is chilled in the summer and heated in the winter to a perfect temperature that everyone enjoys. In the evening take the beach chairs to the private sandy beach and watch the gorgeous sunsets. Settle in for the night in the comfort of your living room watching a movie on a new 42 inch flat screen HD television.
This is a beautiful condo for a couple or a family, with as little, or as much as you choose to do. La Puerta Del Sol is an immaculately landscaped, quiet community on Isla Del Sol. It is just minutes away from some of the award winning gulf beaches like St. Pete Beach and Fort De Sota Park. There are numerous waterside casual and fine dining restaurants with many offering a variety of entertainment for all ages. If shopping is your pleasure it is a short 20 minute drive to John’s Pass or the mall. On your return a reserved parking space awaits you just steps away from the condo entrance. Just 15 minutes away, the historical city of St. Petersburg has many museums, a trolley ride, shops, movie theaters, an aquarium, and the Tampa Bay Devil Rays major league baseball team. Downtown Tampa is only 30 minutes away with more to offer, including Busch Gardens. Walt Disney World and Orlando’s numerous attractions are only a 90 minute drive. Golfing, parasailing, jet skiing, biking, tennis and just plain relaxing is all in abundance in this area!

                        My wife and I enjoyed our stay at this spacious and well equipped 2 BR condo. It was especially convenient being on the 1st floor. The unit is situated in an excellent location with outstanding views of Boca Ciega Bay from the living room and patio. We found the guests as well as owners to be extremely friendly and helpful. Linda was extremely responsive and flexible and we look forward to returning next year.

                        My husband & I spent a beautiful month in Linda's condo and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We enjoyed the condo, (excellently equipped), the magnificent view and the beautifully kept grounds. We enjoyed many meals outside on the patio, overlooking Boca Ciega Bay where the dolphins play! The pool was also wonderful and daily swims were the order of the day. St. Pete's Beach, restaurants and shopping are all just a short drive away. The photos accurately reflect the condo's appearance and amenities. The owner is approachable, efficient and reliable, We would recommend the property and plan to book again next year.

                        My wife and I just returned from a wonderful month at Linda's Condo in Puerta del Sol. The condo was fresh, clean and well equipped. It is situated in a beautiful location with easy access and convenient parking. We really enjoyed the view of the bay from the living room and patio (often with dolphins playing or swimming by), and found the condo to be ideal in terms of proximity to beaches, restaurants, shopping, fishing. We enjoyed walking throught the Isla del Sol area during the day and in the evening. There are restaurants within walking distance (Boardwalk, Japanese, Subway) and a small country store with a deli counter in the adjoining section of the island. We enjoyed quiet discussions with other residents of La Puerta (including some from our home town) while enjoying the heated pool and hot tub. The area has an excellent security staff which is effective without being intrusive. We found the description of the condo including the amenities to be complete and accurate. The owner made the rental process simple and straight forward. We intend to return. In brief, we recommend this condo without reservation.

                        Recommended for: Age 55+, people with disabilities, girls getaway.

                        I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 month vacation at Isla. The condo owner (Linda) is very pleasant to deal with and very accommodating in meeting vacation plans. The large ground floor condo is conveniently located to the pool as well as parking and it is well maintained and very comfortable. The pool is quite large with plenty of lounge chairs and always has a lovely breeze from the adjacent bay. The condo community of La Puerta del Sol has excellent security and makes one feel very secure. St. Petersburg and the beaches are within easy commuting distance. The dining and shopping is very good and the area golf courses are very reasonably priced and challenging. Overall I had a very enjoyable stay and would definitely come back again. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending this vacation condo to anyone seeking a sun holiday in the St. Pete’s area.

                        We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this waterfront condo in La Puerta del Sol. The condo was comfortable and well equipped. We especially enjoyed the view, watching boats, dolphins and birds from the porch and living room. Isla del Sol is a beautiful area with many friendly people. The pool and beach area were also great experiences. Linda, the landlord was very cooperative and easy to work with. We highly recommend this condo and are returning again next year!

                        This 2-BR condo was spacious and a delightful place to return everyday after our daily trips around the area. Because we spent time enjoying the unseasonably warm Jan. weather at the beach, the beach chairs, umbrella and towels were much appreciated. We loved waking up to views of the birds and dolphins frolicking in Boca Ciega Bay, as well as the palms trees blowing outside our windows. The grounds of La Puerta are beautifully landscaped and manicured, and the pool and hot tub are immaculately clean, offering a sweeping view of the Bay. A washer/dryer in the condo was great as spending time at the laundromat does not fit sweetly into our vacation plans (we were there one month so laundry was definitely an issue). . Isla Del Sol is a beautiful island with private residences and condos, as well as a golf course and tennis club, and we enjoyed many walks around the area. The owner was very helpful and kind and easy to reach by phone or e-mail.
