  • The Best Ever Grannie Camp by the Sea

    "Each year we try to gather in all of our 6 offspring +a nephew & their crews for Grannie (that's me) Camp at our place in N.GA. Honestly, it's hard to accomplish w/ everyone's busy schedule. This year my oldest son wanted to take his crew to Disney World. So, okay. I'll find someplace in FL, Gulf side (because it is so beautiful). I needed a big place. WOW!!! Birds of Paradise (BoP) so exceeded the pics. 9 beds & 9 baths & plenty of space for littles (air mattresses & a pull out sofa in the middle house). NO, it is not as pristine as the photos. (the spa doesn't work: but who cares? the ocean calls!!) But, at its heart, it is SO very fantastic/magical. What memories we made! The 3 houses are in a line on the marina. Not in a U as the pics would lead you to think. Stuff we did:Hired a boat to pick up some us off the dock for cruising!!! BIG dock. Parasailing. Walking the beach bar crawling! BoP features multiple gathering places for late night owls and early morning larks. There is a great blue heron that visits every morning. Babies & Granddaddy could nap during the day:no problem. Others could party the sun up. Fishing off the dock. The pool is wonderful. Shallow enough for the littles and then the deep end for the tweens/teens. I swear I heard "Marco Polo" 12 zillion times!! A dozen+ poolside tables & umbrella! And when it comes to the ocean, the white sand beach is a short block walk away to the west and then a troop through the dunes. Sunset watching EVERY night. Our family likes to cook so the kitchen in the big house was a dream: double stove tops, double ovens, double microwaves, BIG subzero fridge & freezer PLUS a big-out-the-wazoo cooler & freezer off the kitchen w/ 2 double industrial sized washer & dryers. The big house is so spacious. We played bingo and Cranium and cards/coloring stuff strewn all over those wonderful rugs. And, yes, the piano was played, along w/ some guitar sing alongs. While I think BoP is more often used as a party site, it is the PERFECT place for a family party. It is so spread out w/ so many gathering places. The beds are comfy. There are grocery stores & bottle shops close by. The property manager set up us w/ a local photographer to take a group photo. Wonderful!! I brought an extra fold out table (there were a lot of us!) and I wish I had brought my favorite paring knife. Other than that, BoP provides paper towels, TP, garbage bags (pick up 2x a week) and a multitude of pots&pans in the big house. 5 stars"

  • INCREDIBLE VIEWS FROM PRIVATE BALCONY/HEATED POOL!

    "I am actually writing this review from the private balcony of this GORGEOUS condo. First off..it IS a condo. Many places call their place a "condo" & they're a glorified hotel room. THIS is a TRULY ELEGANT CONDO with all the love and detail of a HOME. The balcony is PRIVATE, not shared. The HEATED POOL, is actually HEATED and warm enough to swim in any time of year. The hot tub and pool are kept incredibly clean. As for the condo itself, marble floors, granite countertops in a newly remodeled kitchen, updated lighting a décor are what sets THIS unit apart from most of the others. The VIEWS are SECOND to NONE! I LOVE the gulf... but was pleasantly surprised to find that I LOVE the intracoastal waterway more when it comes to a balcony view. There's ALWAYS something to see. Sailboats, day cruise ships, small fishing boats... It's located close enough to the bridge that, at night you can see the beautiful lights of the bridge, but just far away enough that there is not a lot of noise. The view from the balcony every morning and evening are why I am completely in love with this place and planning on renting it again next year. There's no reason for me to look further lol. It's 5 minutes from Don CeSar's where you can go for lunch or just to look at the gulf. Close enough to John's pass to go, but without the "touristy" noise and disruptions that come with staying on that side of the bridge. Lots of great local restaurants close...grocery, pharmacy, even a state park. I wish I could add some of the pictures I've taken from this balcony... a picture is worth a thousand words... and the view from here is why I will keep coming back to THIS condo year after Year. Thanks Amy! We have LOVED our stay."

  • Great beach trip!

    "We were looking for places in Florida to travel to from MI. We decided St Pete Beach after I realized it was rated as the #2 beach in FL by trip advisor. It's also only 25 minutes from the TPA airport. We are from Atlanta so we know Florida very well and thoroughly enjoyed St Pete Beach! The unit and owners were fantastic. The communication was great, Paul and Robin were quick to reply to any questions and issues we had. The unit had everything that we were looking for. The pool/hot tub were nice in the evening, the beach is right in front of you and we enjoyed a surf and turf dinner using the grills provided by the pool area. If you don't feel like cooking (which we didn't most nights) there are many restaurants/bars/grocery stores within walking distance. You really don't need a car here--we rented a car for the week but basically only used it to travel from and to the airport. The comments about the "noise" are a little misleading. You are by a somewhat busy road, but you are also staying on the most popular strip on this beach. If you want a really quiet trip you should expect to stay somewhere that isn't beachfront or within walking distance to so many great attractions. We kept the doors and windows open and were not bothered at all. The trip was everything we expected and more! Hopefully we can work out another return visit soon."

  • 4 Seniors

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Vistas! From the complimentary gift package that greeted us on the table and the great beach towels presented to us for our stay, it all added up to a great beginning of our two week stay. The lady in the office was very helpful, and went beyond what was necessary to give us a hand with the wifi network. All the staff we met were very friendly. The unit was very clean, and other than the two living room sofa chairs, very comfortable. Little things: The kitchen was a little sparse - we purchased a few necessary items at a dollar store. The cleaning tools (broom, dustpan, vacuum) were in poor condition, although the vacuum stopped screeching after the second use. The LR curtains could do with a replacement, as they frequently jammed. A new phone should be installed, as the one in the kitchen was broken. In all, these things were relatively minor, and not uncommon with rentals. We took awesome photos of the sunset right from the balcony, and we loved our beach walk every morning. There are many quality eateries nearby. The pool and hot tub were wonderful, and we used them almost daily. Even though the weather was cool, the water was very warm! Overall, we would recommend this unit to anyone who asked, and would happily return."
