  • PERFECT!

    "This was my first vacation since the death of my husband and I certainly selected the best place. Your condo was perfect for me and it was not only comfortable but bright and cheery. I did not want to go too far from my home but wanted to enjoy the beautiful St Petersburg Beach and surroundings. Friends came for a day and we enjoyed the beach (only a block away). We went out to eat and I highly recommend Veruccis Italian Restaurant, Skidders Restaurant and of course Woody’s. I loved having my coffee on your little patio and watching the birds fly by and relaxing. Everyone was so friendly! Thank you again it a wonderful “staycation”. I intend to come back again real soon!"

  • Great Stay

    "We just returned from our wonderful 1 week stay at this beach cottage. The house is very cute and unique and the location is superb. The house is a minute walk to the most beautiful beach. It also is conveniently located near restaurants, a grocery store, drugstore and shopping. All within walking distance. The restaurant Madfish that is directly across the street was very good and many other places to eat and have a drink are less than a minute walk from the location. The house itself was extremely clean and well equipped. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and really has thought of everything. The house is old and quirky, but the kitchen is modern and fully equipped with nice appliances and just about anything you could need. The owner also had made a really useful list of all of the restaurants, shopping, and things to do in the area that was really helpful. The house had beach chairs and sand toys, ample linens and beach towels, and even a yoga mat and a stroller. We were traveling with three small children under 5 and the owner recommended a company called Baby's Away to rent a crib and highchair from and they were also fantastic. One caveat for those traveling with small children or with any mobility issues is that the house is historic and due to its age and additions over the years there are steps in odd places throughout the home, and the main stairs are really narrow and steep. We had one crash early in our stay and then the kids seemed to learn the lay of the land and were more careful.There are also a lot of lovely knick-knacks throughout the house that need to be put up upon arrival if you do have small children! The home is small but very charming with a deck and grill in the backyard. The owner is a pleasure to work with and this is her family home which she has lovingly maintained and it shows. Being able to go down to the beach and then pop back to the house for naps or lunch was wonderful. We also loved being able to walk down to the beach easily to watch the sunset before heading out for dinner most nights. We would definitely stay here again when we get back to this beautiful area."

  • Beach therapy

    "My wife and I recently spent five nights at the Gulf Strand, Unit #506. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The condo was clean, comfortable, well-furnished, and spacious, with beach vistas and easy beach accessibility. The on-site representatives (Betty & Martin) of the company that manages the property, were friendly, courteous, and helpful. Were we to consider returning to St. Pete Beach, we would definitely want to stay in this condo."

  • Like I said, only the best for us!

    "This was our second trip to St.Pete Beach staying at this beautiful house. My mother is 82 yrs young but needs a little extra help if you know what I mean. We both love the open look and amenities of this home and when Mom needs her afternoon rest time around the pool or just watching her favorite cable show I can be at the beach in 5 min. and spend my time there knowing I'm close to the house only 5 min. away. We love the yard, the pool, the proximity to shopping and restaurants from casual to 5 star only minutes away. Caretaker Mr. Lopez is a gem, helped us with an oxygen delivery for Mom and checked on us when he was in the area. Alex the owner is always available, only a phone call away. We always bring Lola a small chihuahua and she loves chasing the little geckos in the yard. Thank you Alex for another great trip at your beautiful home. Debbie and Addie"
