  • Janet and Bob Macfarlane

    "Just rented this house for vacation and couldn't be happier. Very cozy home with everything you could possible need. Everything is top quality in the kitchen, so you can cook anything you want. The pool area is so private! Very quiet neighborhood and a great location to the beach. We had a great time! Owners are wonderful to deal with also."

  • quiet, clean, super convenient place to stay

    "First of all, the property manager and owner are very helpful and pleasant to deal with. The location of the unit is great. Near everything you need in the area (shopping, stores, restaurants, gas) and a short walk to the beach. Nice and quiet. The condo was very clean (some light dust here and there), well stocked, roomy, comfy beds, well positioned with great views of the pool and bay from the screened porch. St Pete beach and nearby Siesta beach (about a 40 minute ride) were beautiful....very clean as was the neighborhood. Visited Busch Gardens (about a 30 to 45 minute ride) and Disney (about a 1:15 to 1:30 hour ride). Not far from the airport as well. We were very happy all around with the place. Perfect for a family of 4 or 2 couples...."

  • Peaceful, Clean, Relaxing, Friendly

    "Wife & I stayed for 2 weeks in February. Despite being in the middle of everything St. Pete Beach has to offer, Gulfside was amazingly quiet and peaceful. There were lots of "regulars" there, who had been coming for many years, but they were all friendly to us newbies - offering suggestions of places to go and things to do. The walk to the magnificent beach was about 2 long blocks. If you have much to carry, might want to load your stuff into the car, drop it off, and then park at Gulfside as we did as parking is pretty pricey at the beach. On days when it was too cool for the beach, we were able to relax at the pool because it was pretty well sheltered from the wind. Would have been nicer if pool was heated. Kathy was there when you needed here, but not when you didn't. In short, if you want the newest, fanciest, plushest place in St. Pete Beach, look elsewhere. If you want basic peace and quiet, but still close to everything you need, this is the place."

  • Close to beach, perfect for kids

    "The condo was right a cross the street from the beach! There were tons of beach toys for the kids so no reason to bring any. There was everything you need in the condo and it was clean. The perk was having the balcony to sit at night and soak up the ocean breeze. Would go back again!"
