Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi, Kelly

We had a wonderful time in your place.

It was very efficient for us and we loved to see out to ocean from window. We enjoyed beach very much. We didn't use swimming pool. My wife doesn't like swimming even though you have a very nice swimming pool. We played golf around area often. One month has gone by so quickly.

Hope see you again

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a great little getaway with all the comforts of home! We stayed here for 3 nights prior to meeting with extended family for a week long vacation. This condo is conveniently located across the street from the beach and within walking distance to many great restaurants. The unit is clean and well maintained. We hope to make it back, soon. Chip and Susan provided helpful directions to the unit from Tampa airport.

Beach in the Backyard

  • 5 of 5

We used to travel to SPB as a family every year when I was a kid, so this time around, mom and I made a trip back to see all the old stomping grounds. Chip and Sue's unit was awesome! The condo complex was very quiet, clean, and easy to get around. We rented a car for Tampa and our favorite breakfast place on Pass-A-Grille, but everything else can be accessed by walking. We loved coming back to our "second home" and couldn't have asked for an easier and convenient place to stay. My husband and I are now talking about a trip in the fall!

Amazing condo with outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

Super clean condo with view of St Pete beach out the window. The condo was perfect! It had everything I needed and more. I used the beach chair, umbrella and cooler everyday on my very short walk across the parking lot to the beach. I could not have asked for a better location. St. Pete is a great beach - much less commercial and crowded compaired to Clearwater. I loved the trundle bed! Very comfy with wonderful sheets and cozy blankets. I cooked almost every night in the condo - small cooktop, pots and pans, microwave, frig and freezer were perfect! I loved the use of the space. I had everything I needed right there! Also enjoyed the small outside patio that overlooked the pool. Very very nice stay. I hope to to back soon and when I do I will not stay anywhere else but in this little slice of heaven. Marshall - owner of condo was prompt and super helpful. Everything at the condo was labeled with instructions so it made it so easy to figure everything out. They put much thought into making a stay in their condo easy and very pleasant. Thank you for making my trip so easy and enjoyable!!
