About Gertrude Foster

The picture above is a picture of my Mother, Sister and I. We truly enjoy staying at Boca Ciega Resort because it's a paradise and it is a great escape for me and my family.

Gertrude Foster purchased this condo in 2007

Why Gertrude Foster chose Saint Petersburg

My husband and I were looking for a small, intimate condo great for getaways and spending time with friends. We love Boca Ceiga Bay. It's quiet, it's tranquil and we love the sunsets and watching the dolphins from our private balcony.

What makes this condo unique

The most unique benefit is watching the dolphins jumping in the wake of a near-by boater...

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Gertrude!

Thank you, thank you, thank you sooo much for allowing us to stay at beautiful Boca Ciega Bay! Pat and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The condo was perfect and just what we like! We found the pool extremely nice with so many nice people to talk to! We never did find the fitness room, but we did get a run in on the beach a couple of days!! I was wondering what kind of bed is in room 203, because I never slept so well in my life. The pillows were exceptional as well! We will definitely be back again some day…..gotta save our pennies

Thanks again!

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Was looking for a place to stay during a recent business trip, and came across this condo unit. Have never stayed at a STR before, and can say now this was a wonderful experience. We loved condo, and it had everything we needed. It is clean and well maintained. Location is great. Loved having a heated pool and hot tub. So close to all attractions. Great view of the bay.

Had lots of wildlife - 1st morning dolphins swimming in the bay. 2nd morning numerous flying fish. In the evenings, Hawaiian type sunsets, Blue Herons and Egrets fighting with people for their bait.

Quiet and comfortable; by the 2nd morning, we were calling this home. We will no longer be going on cruises, instead we will be vacationing here.

Nice Boca Ciega Bay condo close to everything

  • 5 of 5

It has a great view of the bay, very relaxing on the lanai watching the bay dolphins play, the sea breeze is very refreshing. The condo unit is clean and comfortable and I would highly recommend it. It was a great experience.

If you are looking for a relaxing place to stay...this is it!! My daughter and I stayed for six nights and each and every day that we stayed was like a piece of heaven. The condo and grounds were very clean and well taken care of. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place to stay, you have found it.

My only complaint would be the occasional barking dogs that someone decided to bring on theie vacation.

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and “ up to date”. Was delighted with the view from the balcony. A small thing but the towels were the big, thick, plush kind. Asked the owner for some places to see and she recommended both places of interest and good restaurants. The complex is centrally located to restaurants, grocery stores, and points of interests. Had a great experience staying there.

Great Condo, Great Area,

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided last minute to make a trip to the Gulf, researching all sites for accommodations last minute for first week of April was frustrating to say the least. Thankfully we hooked up with Gertrude (owner) she not only accommodated us with our dates but made this a simple process. As all the reviews mention, the views from any unit in this complex are amazing (yes we saw the Dolphins from our balcony most days too). The condo has a beautiful swimming pool, hot tub, fishing/boat pier all over looking the Bay. Plenty of free parking as well as elevators. The secure DSL Internet connection was a big bonus for us. Unit was immaculately clean and the owner has tiled the balcony as well as the condo floors no carpet. On the balcony we had outstanding sunset views. Each day we made the easy 10 minute drive to the Beaches then hurried back for the great sunsets off our balcony. The Condo is right across the road from a 40 mile Biking trail which was great for a workout each morning. Awesome place great owner, we will definitely stay here again.
