Recent Florida Central West reviews

  • Wonderful Stay

    "We stayed in the condo first week of October. The place was just perfect. The resort is right on the beach overlooking Gulf of Mexico. You might think the view wouldn’t be as perfect since the condo is kind of on the side, but you DO have 100% of clear ocean/ beach view right there on the beach on the North side of the building. This was exactly what we were looking for. It was 6 of us 4 adults and 2 kids. The condo is big enough everyone felt comfortable. Everything you need is right there on the spot: the Café, the bar, big pool, easy access to the beach right from the back of the building. There are tones of restaurants within 1 mile radius. You do not need to drive to most of them if you travel with no kids. The resort is located half way between Treasure Island DT and John's Pass. We loved the big balcony we spend our evenings at looking at the sunsets. I don’t think you are able to see it from the South side of the building, which makes the condo even more unique. The resort is clean and neat. Assigned parking is covered close to the elevators so it’s very convenient. The owners Jay and Connie are very responsive. They will answer all your questions and they are very easy to deal with. We will definitely rent this condo again when we are back to the area!!!!!!!!!"

  • Nice stay

    "We recently stayed 5 nights with our 2 young kids. Condo location is fantastic, just steps from the beach. Complex and pool area are immaculate. Condo itself was very clean, with all needed amenities available - iron, beach chairs, pails and shovels for kids, etc. Only negatives were a couple of nights we could hear music from the nightclub below (not overwhelming, but could definitely be heard) and the bathroom could use an update. My only suggestion is to bring beach towels as the only towels available are bath towels. Overall a good stay"

  • The perfect get away in the sunshine state!

    "Perfect place for a vacation. You are steps away from the Gulf and pool and overlook them both from the balcony. Perfect place to watch the sunset or walk the beach looking for shells. We saw dolphins just about every day we were there. There are stores, places for dinner, bars and Walgreens all within walking distance. A great place to come, relax and spend time with the family. The condo was absolutely perfect. We have stayed twice already and will be back again next year."

  • The BEST place to vacation!

    "We walked in the door and never wanted to leave. This condo has everything for everyone. There were six of us ranging in age from 3 to 62 and everyone enjoyed the condo without a single complaint. As many of the previous reviews stated, the condo is extremely clean, updated, comfortable and has everything you would need. Don't bother bringing a cooler they have 4 to choose from. Need a hair dryer? No worries, 2 of those as well. Not to mention iron, ironing board, beach chairs, beach towels, wake boards and so many toys. In the words of my seven year old "this is AWESOME!" Perfect location, perfect decor...perfect all around. We already miss waking up to the beautiful views of Johns pass and the ocean. We will be back. Thank you, Linda. You are a pleasure!"

Florida Central West Travel Tips

Central West Florida’s beaches in this region have an awesome advantage over those on the east side of the state: their Gulf waters are typically calmer and warmer than those on than the Atlantic Ocean side. Here are the top attractions and sights in Central West Florida:

Tampa

Tampa is an excellent place to vacation for both families and couples alike. Here are some of the top things to do and see:

- Tampa is the perfect spot for any animal lover. Head to the small but impressive Lowry Park Zoo, see lions, tigers and other cats at the Big Cat Rescue and check out the endangered gentle giants of the sea at the Tampa Electric Manatee Viewing Center, which is free of charge. There’s also the gorgeous Florida Aquarium on the edge of downtown Tampa, which houses more than 20,000 animals and plants. Make sure to set aside at least three hours here to see it all!

- For adventure, take a trip to Busch Gardens, which combines Seaworld and other animal exhibits with safari-themed rides. It’s the ultimate family theme park, and many people opt to spend more than one day here. Just across the street from Busch Gardens is Adventure Island, which boasts 30 splendid acres of water rides and pools. Another must-visit if you have the time is Dinosaur World, which is just a 25-minute drive east to Plant City. Here, these prehistoric beasts come to life in a large park and play area, where kids can also take part in a fossil dig.

- Tampa also prides itself on its excellent museums, including the Museum of Science and Industry, housed in an other-worldly building, and the Tampa Museum of Art, which has some great kid-friendly exhibits.

- Adults will love the Henry B. Plant Museum, which is housed in the 1891 Tampa Bay hotel and tells a wonderful story of the Victorian era, with gorgeous antiques in an ornate building. There’s also the antique Tampa Theatre for movies, Lettuce Lake State Park, the Tampa Bay History Center and The David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts.

- Of course, the beaches here are top notch, but don’t miss the lovely Fort De Soto Park’s beach, with an interesting war-time history.

St. Petersburg/Clearwater

St. Petersburg is just southwest of Tampa on the bayside, while Clearwater lies straight west. This area offers award-winning beaches, excellent museums and other perfect amenities for your Florida vacation. Here are some of the best things to do and see in the St. Petersburg and Clearwater areas:

- It’s a rare occasion when St. Petersburg isn’t sunny, so head to some of Florida’s most amazing beaches. St. Pete Beach has been called one of the best in the country. Spend the day on its frosty white beaches, keep an eye out for dolphins and grab lunch at Frenchy’s or The Hurricane restaurants.

- Check out the collection of 50,000 tropical plants on a whopping 4 acres at the lovely Sunken Gardens in the heart of St. Petersburg.

- Take a stroll on The Pier, where you can shop for souvenirs and take a catamaran tour. It’s especially beautiful at night.

- If you can handle a day or morning away from the beach, explore the 245 acres of pure nature at the Boyd Hill Nature Preserve.

- Appreciate the work of a creative genius at the Salvador Dali Museum, which boasts the largest collection of his work outside of Europe. You’ll recognize his tell-tale Surrealist style right away.

- See Winter, the famous dolphin who lost her entire tail in a crab trap when she was only three months old. She learned to adapt and is currently a big celebrity at the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

- Hang out on beautiful Clearwater Beach and take a stroll or picnic in Philippe Park in

Clearwater.

Sarasota

Sarasota is about a 45-minute drive south of St. Petersburg. It’s a wonderful place for a Gulf Coast beach trip. Here are the top things to do:

- Siesta Key Beach is known as one of the best in the country. The sand is powdery and glistening and the water is often a deep, gorgeous emerald. It’s perfect for families, as it’s one of the few beaches in the area that doesn’t allow smoking. Also, the gulf waters are warm and calm, so kids can play freely here, and you might even see some frolicking dolphins, adding to Siesta Key Beach’s picture-perfect ambience. If you dare, go parasailing with Siesta Key Parasail & Jetski for a thrilling ride and unmatched views from above.

- Immerse yourself in nature at the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, the Sarasota Jungle Gardens and the Mote Marine Laboratory.

- Appreciate the arts at the John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art, housed in an ornate structure, and the palm-shrouded, Mission-style Sarasota Opera House.
