Condos don't get much closer to the beach than Bahia Vista 8-314. Located on the Isla del Sol, one of the barrier islands that make up St. Pete Beach, the 2-bedroom unit is literally just yards from the lush white sands and the sparkling waters of where the Gulf of Mexico leads into Boca Ciega Bay. As you laze on the shaded balcony of the 3rd-floor condo you can keep an eye out for dolphins playing in the waves, seabirds soaring across the sky, and beachcombers searching for seashells.
Because sliding glass doors separate the living area of Bahia Vista 8-314 from the balcony, you can marvel at the view even while indoors. When you do tear your gaze away from the palm trees swaying in the breeze, you can watch a movie on the large flat-screen TV with cable and DVD player or take advantage of the free WiFi. There's plenty of seating in the living area for family and friends to gather: a well-cushioned sofa, a settee, and an armchair perfect for curling up with a good book. The palette of beiges and soft blues reflects the colors of the sea, surf, and sky outside, making the room as serene as the beach.
Bahia Vista 8-314 has 2 dining areas, each of which seats 4. One, just off the living area, shares the spectacular view; the other is off the kitchen. If you have another family over for dinner, the kids can sit at one table while the adults linger over their meal at the other. Or you can designate one table for meals and another for games and crafts.
Thanks to the kitchen's pass-through, you can look out at the bay even while you're cooking. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the appliances, pots and pans, gadgets, and tableware you'll need to feed a hungry crowd… or simply to brew your morning coffee. There's even a dishwasher, which will leave you more time to stroll along the beach, and while we're on the subject of time-saving conveniences, Bahia Vista 8-314 has its own washer and dryer as well.
The 2 bedrooms are decorated in the same soothing colors as the living area. The master bedroom includes a king-size bed, while the 2nd bedroom has 2 twins. Each room has a flat-screen TV for late-night viewing as well as windows overlooking the bay. The sound of the waves lapping onto the shore is the ideal lullaby. Each bedroom also has its own full bathroom for maximum convenience, and if you have additional guests, the living room's sofa opens into a queen-size bed, enabling Bahia Vista 8-314 to sleep 6 people in all.
The grounds of Bahia Vista are as well maintained as unit 8-314. When you're not splashing about in the bay you can swim in the complex's heated pool. Likewise, when you're not relaxing on the chaise of your private balcony, you can lounge poolside in the sun or beneath a patio umbrella.
With the beach and bay just a short distance from your door, you'll never be bored during your stay at Bahia Vista 8-314. You can paddleboard, ride jet skis, snorkel, swim, and parasail, not to mention walk along the smooth, clean sand. Because Bahia Vista is practically alongside the Pinellas Bayway bridge, you can easily drive—or even walk—to the other barrier islands that make up St. Pete Beach. Or you can drive in the opposite direction, to the mainland, and be in the heart of St. Petersburg in less than 20 minutes. There you'll find an array of attractions, including the Dalí Museum, the Chihuly Collection, and other art museums.
Then again, you could spend your entire stay in and around Bahia Vista and still make memories that will last a lifetime. So what are you waiting for? Book your reservation today; we're looking forward to seeing you.

Place was wonderful! Great location.
Condo was very comfortable and clean. Patio was great - very spacious and great view of the water - many dolphins sightings. Nice small beach to relax on. Location was very convenient to get to restaurants and shopping areas. Beautiful grounds to walk near golf course. Only complaint was the patio chairs were not comfortable - need a more comfortable design. Really enjoyed out stay.
Amazing Condo and Location
The condo itself is very nice and you cannot beat the location. The only issue we had was that the place was not clean. This is not any fault of the owner but of the cleaning staff. Some of the dishes in the cupboard had food still on them. (Pizza, butter, coffee stains on several cups, the frying pans were disgusting) We actually purchased a new frying pan which we left behind as we were not even going to attempt to clean the ones there. The patio table had ice cream lids and chocolate ice cream melted on it. The kitchen table and stove looked like they were wiped down with a greasy towel. The guest bathroom had black hair all around the shower and floor. We had an issue with the pool tags as they were not left out in plain site but instead hidden in one of the many wicker baskets. By day 3 and several phone calls and trips to the property management office we found them ourselves without any return calls from VRBO. The entry code did not work when we arrived at 10pm and we had to call to have that fixed. That being said with all the above noted, the condo was fabulous. Too bad about the condition some feel is adequate cleanliness.
All of the above is no fault of the owner and he would probably be mortified to walk in to find what we did.
