Property description

We have been blessed to come down to the gorgeous, quaint island of Tierra Verde for the past 25+ years. Located roughly 25 minutes from Tampa International Airport, our waterfront retreat is conveniently located near prime beaches, delicious dining and fun attractions.

Condo complex amenities include three clay tennis courts, three pools and hot tubs, a clubhouse, gated entrance, reserved parking spot for your rental car, walking paths where you'll see manatees, dolphins and a variety of fish, a library, fitness center and view of the beautiful Sunshine Skyway bridge.

NOTE: WE DO NOT HAVE A MARINA SLIP.

Condo amenities include full kitchen with new appliances, breakfast nook, dining table (great for games of UNO, Parcheesi and Boggle!), breakfast bar, comfortable living room with new furniture and queen sleeper sofa. For leisure, two sets of golf clubs, fishing equipment, beach chairs and toys are provided. All linens (including beach towels) are provided as well as in-unit washer and dryer. For those with a little one, we also have a pack and play, high chair and umbrella stroller.

Enjoy sipping on your beverage of choice on our beautiful lanai and forget all the hustle and bustle. It overlooks the Boca Ciega Bay, association marina and intercoastal waterway.

We have opened our condo to monthly renters, Dec-Mar and June-Aug. The purpose of renting is to generate enough to cover the costs to maintain the property - we are competitive, if not lower, than other rentals in the area.

Traveling to and from the condo is easy.

Flights
Look for deals into Tampa (TPA) or Clearwater (smaller airport). Both are under a 1/2 hour drive to the condo.
Delta tends to have excellent rates and non-stop flights readily available.
Spirit has good fire sales, but they charge for carryons and miscellaneous extras, so that might add up.
AirTran has very few direct flights and will stop in Atlanta on the way down. Typically, they get delayed.

Rental Cars
Rental cars are available at the airport. If you are a Costco member, we have found great rates through them.
If you don't plan on going anywhere, there are taxi and shuttle services.

Tolls
There are tolls throughout the area. The latest pricing for the Pinellas Bayway is $.75. Going to Ft. Desoto is $.50. If you want to drive over the Sunshine Skyway, it's $1. You can rent a PASS system through your rental car provider that will just charge you at the end to your credit card. Typically it's $2.95 for the unit plus toll costs.

Getting Around
GPS on your phone will probably be fine instead of renting one. It's an easy drive to the condo from the airport and the area is filled with connected barrier islands.
We also offer WIFI at the condo, so any WIFI-enabled devices will be able to connect to look up driving information as well.

Printing your Boarding Passes
There is a WIFI-enabled printer/copier/scanner that you can print your boarding passes on for your convenience located in a drawer in the master bedroom.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: We live in Michigan and love sharing our special waterfront retreat with others!

Why the Owner Chose Tierra Verde:
What started as a place for my grandparents to escape Michigan's harsh winters, has transformed into a comfortable getaway in a sleepy beach town. Close to everything - great beaches, great dining, museums, driving distance to Disney and the other theme parks. VERY kid friendly, as we have a young kiddo ourselves.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Sunsets are incredible. Dolphins and manatees can be spotted often. Osprey's swoop among the tall palm trees and the area is just amazing. For the price, especially, you cannot beat this! We worked very hard to transform the condo from a grandparent-like home to a fresh Floridian getaway with appropriate colors and textures.
