About Patrick Leary

We are very proud to call our 2nd vacation home Sunset Vistas. Our family is from Buffalo New York where it gets cold some times in the Winter. Our family vacationed many times here in Treasure Island when our children were growing up. We often combined our trip to the Beach with a trip to Disney World. The kids loved both places very much. My wife and I love the beach and try to getaway here as much as time permits. I invite you to spend a week or two at our home away from home. I have many returning guests now year after year. I offer very friendly service. I own two other properties on the Beach and advertise them here too. I offer discounted rates since I like to sell out fast. So I hope you will see that this is a real value and come back and visit us again and again.

Patrick Leary purchased this condo in 2006

Why Patrick Leary chose Treasure Island

I bought this vacation rental because of its great location on the beach and being up on the 5th floor. The view from the balcony is spectacular. We are the original owners as we purchased it brand new in 2006. .In February 2018 our Unit was updated again with new furniture . It's fresh, updated and very comfortable. You are on the Beach but yet so close to so many restaurants, shopping and other outdoor activities . We love the Beach and I think you will too !!

What makes this condo unique

The view from the balcony is fabulous !! You can watch the sunset right on the balcony or take a stroll down the the Beach to enjoy the view . We are in the Rental Program at Sunset Vistas so you as our Guest can check in at the front desk and have the use of Our 'Awesome Staff' during your stay. Our Guests love this and I think you will too.

Sunset Vistas is Refcommended!

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed at this lovely resort in January 2008. It was very well maintained and was served by a professional staff. We had one minor problem which was attended to very promptly. The grounds were well kept, and the pool was sparkling. It was a good location as John's Pass was just over the bridge, and it was convenient for exploring Clearwater Beach, Dunedin, Caladesi Island and St. Petersburg. We enjoyed our stay very much, and the owner was super to deal with. Enjoy!

The beach is literally steps away and there are many restaurants within walking distance! Just don’t forget your beach towels...the property doesn’t provide them! We will definitely stay again!

Great place for family vacation!

We spent Christmas 2017 here, and it was well worth it. The condo was clean and spacious. The property was well maintained. Location is great. It's close to John's Pass, but not so close that you get all the noise and traffic. The owner was fantastic to work with, and the staff of Sunset Vista was friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back.

Fantastic --- Says it all

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 17 days at the Condo. The staff at the Sunset Vista very friendly always asking how’s your day going. Great lounge chairs at the pool. The condo is very spacious, enjoyed having a large kitchen we cooked in some, great having an oven since we did cook a Turkey dinner. Which turn out wonderful. Replenishing of coffee, bath tissue, and PAPER TOWELS every second day was a great treat. And having a washer and dryer right in the condo was perfect. Pat’s condo is in the great location for beautiful Sunsets, restaurants, shopping or just relaxing. You can either walk or drive. We walked over to Gator’s just before the bridge to eat, then another night over the bridge to John’s Pass walked around many store to shop at. You could even see some Dolphins swimming around just in front of Sully’s. One night we walked all the way down to Screwie Louies (that took 40 minutes) but we took the bus to come back and went to Captain Bill’s great mussels and Shrimp Pasta dishes. Took a ride to Clearwater to commercialize. Since we are from Buffalo NY we took a ride to Shadracks in St Petersburg looks just like the old bar on Broadway in Buffalo. We also tried Ricky T’s, VIP and Middle ground many places to choose from.

Just like to say thank you to Pat for sharing your home away from home with us you are a great person to know and to work with. I will be telling my friends about this vacation.

Car: recommended

You'll be just minutes from John's Pass - which abounds with great restaurants, beach bars, beach activities, fishing, boating and golf. Or enjoy other activities - with Busch Gardens, Tampa's Aquarium and Lowry Park Zoo - only 30 minutes away - or Disney World, Universal and Sea World only 90 minutes away If you're a sports fan, we're only a few minutes away from Tropicana Field(Tampa Bay Rays) Raymond James Stadium (the Bucs!) and the Ice Palace(The Hurricanes). Tampa International is only a 30-minute drive and offers many discounted fares into the area.
