                  This condominium is located in a small, 14 unit, complex that is in Belleair Beach, a non-commercial residential beach community with no public beach access points. The nearest public access to your beach front is over a mile away outside of Belleair Beach. Yet the center of activity at Clearwater Beach's Pier 60 is approximately 4 miles away. This community is conveniently located 35 minutes from Tampa International airport, 45 minutes from Busch Gardens and 90 minutes from Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sea World. Discover a comfortable and tranquil setting for a relaxing vacation right on the beach. Enjoy boating, deep sea fishing, jet skiing and para-sailing just minutes away.

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About: Steve Phillippy for the entire Phillippy family. My wife & I retired in May 2013 to make more time for travel, volunteer work, grandchildren, extended family, making a difference in and adding value to the world.

                  Why Belleair Beach:
                  The Beach! The white, soft sand, of the warmer Gulf of Mexico! At our SunSet Sands in Belleair Beach, you are very close to some of the largest homes on the beaches of Florida, which you can walk in front of on the beach directly from our SunSet Sands patio. Belleair Beach is a semi-private beach meaning that no one but residents or clients can park in Belleair Beach.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  You are on the ground floor and can walk directly to the sandy beach on the Gulf of Mexico. You can smell, hear and see the Gulf of Mexico from your bedroom, living room, kitchen and patio. You don't need shoes to get to the sand and the gulf from our SunSet Sands. The sunsets! You should always make time for the sunsets.
