YOUR PARADISE: Welcome to the newest luxury resort on St. Pete Beach! You’ll appreciate this very clean, family-friendly, well appointed condo with the easiest beach access you can find. Located directly on the white sand, there’s an amazing southwest view overlooking the pool. From the balcony, you can wake up with a cup of coffee in peace as you watch the sunrise, or throughout the day, keep an eye on the kids at the pool while reading a book or just taking a break from the sun. End the day watching the sun set in all its glory.

SPACIOUS & CLEAN: The fully-equipped kitchen is spacious and has granite counter tops, as do the two full baths. The main living area has clean beige tile and the master bedroom has a textured designer carpet. The dining area is situated between the living and kitchen areas and seats 6 people comfortably. With all the conveniences of home, you may never want to leave. We have 2 full bedrooms with brand new furniture and TV's. The kitchen area has a brand new table and chairs that seat 6. The living area is nicely appointed again with brand new designer living set. For your best possible vacation experience, the condo is independently managed to ensure excellent customer service and exceptional cleaning. Additional information will be e-mailed on request. The unit and the building are both smoke-free, and pets are not permitted in the building or on the property.

BARRIER FREE & ON THE BEACH: This stunning unit is on the second floor with easy access to both stairs and the elevator. The access to the beach is quick: You’ll just spend seconds going back and forth from the condo to the beach vs. 15-20 minutes that it takes in high-rises. This is especially important and convenient for families with children.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: The resort is located right on gorgeous St. Pete Beach, and our condo is a short walk to the famous Don Cesar Hotel & Resort. There are beach bars nearby, upscale restaurants or casual, depending on your mood and budget. There’s shopping on Gulf Blvd or travel inland to malls and the many shopping areas that St. Pete’s/ Tampa Bay offers. Grocery stores are plentiful and close enough to walk if you choose. Walt Disney World is a 2 hour drive while Busch Gardens is nearby. Playgrounds for kids are just minutes away as is golf for those who enjoy to play.

NEW & UPDATED: As of December 2013, everything in the unit has been updated in the last 6 months. It has a brand new living area, dining room set and bedroom sets. There are 3 different 40-inch+ TV’s for rainy days to divide and conquer when the kids need something to do. There’s something for everyone in the family: the beach, warm Florida sunshine, the pool, quiet times on the balcony, limitless entertainment in a beautiful setting both inside and out.

Car: Not Necessary

Whether you want to relax by the pool or on the white sandy beach, you can find a nice peaceful spot to sit and relax. After enjoying the peaceful gulf waters, watching the wildlife (including dolphins), listening to the ocean, and feeling the sunshine, you are a few steps back to the condo. It's easy to walk the beach to a nice restaurant or enjoy a meal that you can prepare yourself in our fully equipped kitchen.

Walking the beach to the south is the beautiful and historical 'Don Cesar Hotel', where you can enjoy a nice lunch, dinner, or ice cream. On the way you will pass an outdoor, beach bar/restaurant with volleyball, live music and great casual food. Just to the north are other fantastic beach-side tiki bars and restaurants which are in walking distance.

As for activities, there is a place to rent beach water bikes, kayaks, jet skis, sail boats, etc... about a half mile north of the condo. There are also fishing, snorkeling, dolphin-watching, sunset sailing boat trips and more at a marina less than a mile away from the condo.

If you need a break from the beach, Busch Gardens Amusement Park, great museums, and excellent shopping are all nearby and 'Disney World' is just a 2 hour drive.

The condo is centrally located on St. Pete Beach and within walking distance of a shopping center and many excellent restaurants so you can park the car for the week and forget using it unless you want to do some exploring of this great area. There also is a beach trolley for transportation.

You can check availability on the calendar located after the last series of photos. The calendar refers strictly to this condo and not availability in the building. The description of my condo and contents refers to condo 207 and not to other condos in the building.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We have four young children and live in Michigan. This is our home away from home when it is dark and gray in Michigan.

Why the Owner Chose St. Pete Beach:
After years of renting we decided to buy our own family condo. After staying at Vistas on the Gulf we fell in love and knew it would be the perfect spot for our family to vacation year after year. We hope you enjoy your time in 207 as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The simplicity, serenity and proximity of Vistas on the Gulf really works well for our family. We have stayed in many places on vacation, when we stayed here for the first time 3 years ago, there was no doubt it was the place for us. The ease of getting back and forth from the beach with small children can't be beat.
