Property description

Our condo, Vistas 301 is the unit with the American flag flying on the balcony in our opening picture. No fooling around here, it's a TRUE GULF FRONT CONDO (not a side unit) with many recent upgrades and is the nicest unit in the building. Vistas on the Gulf is a 38 unit condo built on St. Pete Beach in 2003. If you've never been here, the beach is a great place for families, quiet and relaxing. We are the original owners of unit 301 and spend as much time as possible there, it has become our oasis! The gulf front view is just incredible, not only during the day, but look at our pictures to see some of the spectacular sunsets and rainbows we've seen!

The unique thing about our unit is that we have two balconies--a large balcony directly facing west to the beach and Gulf of Mexico. Another balcony is off the second bedroom and faces south. This view gives you a great pool view and a beautiful gulf view. One of the nice features of our condo, is that you can walk right out to the beach and can enjoy several beach restaurants/bars and never even have to put on your shoes!

Each unit is individually owned and we have added many personal touches. Master bedroom has a queen bed with a new firm premium mattress purchased May 2016 and other bedroom has a bunk bed with stairs, twin mattress top / full size firm mattress bottom purchased May 2016. The living room also has a newer double sized sofa-sleeper . As nice as the unit is, you'll most likely be enjoying the beautiful beach and weather outside! Newer power leather recliner, new carpets purchased Dec 2015. Air conditioning system recently installed. Everything in our unit operates as it should.
We clean, upgrade and replace items regularly during each of our 9-10 weeks we visit each year. We take great pride in our condo and believe in putting money back into it to keep it fresh, updated and desireable. Just like you, we like staying in a clean updated well maintained condo when we vacation. We re invest in our condo continuously hoping that our guests have a wonderful experience. We love repeat guests.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: My wife and I have owned our beach condo since construction was completed in March 2003 and take great pride in our unit. We visit often from Chicago and are on top of any little repairs or missing household items. It's more than an investment property and your enjoyment during your vacation is important to us! We 're always cleaning, replacing or upgrading something during our 9-10 weeks we visit each year. We believe in putting money back into our condo to keep it clean, fresh and desirable. We want you to have a wonderful experience and contact us directly for your next visit to St Pete Beach. We love having repeat guests.

Why the Owner Chose Belle Vista, St. Pete Beach, FL, USA:
We love St. Pete Beach! My wife's grandparents and parents have been visiting since the 40's. SPB is totally laid back. Tee shirts, shorts and flip flops is the dress code there. I always say SPB is more like Key West then Palm Beach. Relax and leave your formal wear at home. Our kids are always safe. We never have an issue with them walking on the beach day or night. Not to worry Mom and Dad, no college parties or wet tee shirt contests going on here. This is a great family place, very peaceful and quiet for you snow birds escaping from the harsh northern winters.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
St Pete Beach has beautiful white sand beaches. It has a relaxing laid back feeling to it. Enjoy a leisurely walk along the beach or pick up the pace and run while enjoying the surf, sun and relaxing atmosphere. Don't forget to smile and say hello to the other walkers and runners as they greet you. Enjoy the many beach side and casual restaurants near my condo. Publix Super Market is 1/4 mile north of us on Gulf Blvd, easy to walk to. There is a trolley (bus) stop in front of our building for easy traveling up and down Gulf Blvd all the way to Clearwater. You'll love our unit as everyone does as you'll see in the guest comment book we keep in our living room.
