                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1972

                  About the owner: Almenara A-2 is owned by the Gibbons family of Tampa, Florida. The 10 unit very private beach front property was purchased in 1972 by Congressman Sam M. Gibbons as a roll over of previous beach properties dating back to the early 1900s. It has been the Gibbons' family retreat that has brought together many generations of family and friends for relaxation, festive public policy discussions, great leisurely meals and endless hours of spectacular sunsets and reflective thinking overlooking the beach and surf. Tim Gibbons, an investment executive, lives in Tampa, FL and Cliff Gibbons is a lobbyist/lawyer in Washington, DC lives with his family in McLean, VA.

                  Why the Owner Chose Belleair Beach:
                  Tastefully decorated beach property with quick access from Int'l. Airport to gorgeous private, quite beach front property. Quick access to many good restaurants. Many water related activities from shelling on the beaches to swimming, boating, fishing, sailing, wind/kite surfing, paddle boarding, golf, tennis, professional and college sports, performing arts, art museums and galleries, and quick access to exceptional medical institutions. Secluded barrier islands nearby for nature walks and viewing birds, sea/estuary environments and wildlife. Centrally located for access to many entertainment attractions, parks and wilderness areas of Florida.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  This beach front property is for those who want to relax and unwind in comfortable, very private 1,800 sq. ft two floor quiet condominium. Miles of fabulous beach walks and phenomenal sunsets for cocktails on the deck or beach side with family and friends. Generally you can go most of the day, if you choose, without seeing anyone else on the property or beaches. Great hideaway for relaxing, reading, dining and great coastal scenery.
