HISTORY of the building:

Since April 2006, we are PRIVATE OWNERS in SOUTH BEACH CONDO HOTEL in Treasure Island. This end of the hallway CONDO is on the 5th floor out of six floors, totally facing the beaches with a big balcony to relax while enjoying a cup of coffee/tea or a glass of wine and observing the most awesome sunsets.

Our condo has windows in every room facing east, north, west and south with the big balcony,

We personally take the time and pride to care for our condo and we give you an outstanding service. I do the CLEANING myself and I even IRON the linen for you.

We live PRIVATELY here in Treasure Island on Isle of Capri, only seven minutes away by car. You can always reach us 24/7 and the Ladies from Front Desk during their office hours and we all will assist you in any way possible.

Our condo is VERY well equipped with everything you find in your own home and we do the designing ourselves, the European style.

You enter our condo and you are attracted to the full view from the 5th floor facing the wide and white beaches, as we are located DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH. No other building or street lamp or palm tree is obstructing your view over the beaches.

The kitchen is the heart of our condo and right in the center of the living room.

Furnished with a granite counter top you can prepare the meals while you are overlooking the beaches to the wide waters or - you can also watch TV or a DVD on Netflix or your own films.

We invested in a new Dream Sleeper Air Mattress Queen Size for the pullout couch in the living room. Finally, we found THE solution for this sleeper couch.

We put a new fabric on the couch with a bright yellow pattern with small butterflies. What a difference new upholstery makes! We can pull the cover off the cushions, put these in the washing machine and they come out new and clean and ready for your use.

If you are covered in sunscreen, we provide a big 100 % cotton throw in red to be placed over the yellow fabric. You still can sit comfortably on the couch, because I can wash the red throw every time and it will be new for each new guest.

We positioned a tall reading lamp next to the couch and now you can read one of our books or play a game together.

One guest mentioned she liked to have binoculars. We fulfilled her wish and now you can use them by watching dolphins playing in the ocean and birds flocking on the beaches. And sometimes, if you are patient enough you can see manatees swimming slowly in the ocean near the beaches.

We like to mention that we always redecorate and improve our condo with the help of your personal input if you suggest something you would like to see and use.

Our condo offers two bedrooms, Master Bedroom with King Size Bed and 40 " Smart TV and the second bedroom with two Twin Size beds and a TV 28 ", which convert to a King Size bed also, if you wish to do so.

The LINEN we PROVIDE are 100 % sateen cotton with 600 counts and they feel and look amazing and you sleep 'like in heaven'. Adjacent to the Master Bedroom is one bathroom with the normal size bathtub/shower, a commode and a hand washbasin with granite counter top. The second bathroom is bigger and closer to the living room/kitchen. Both bathrooms are equipped with enough towels and extra two big beach towels.

I could not resist to buy some new, fancy towels with embroideries of different fish, thick and plush and 100 % cotton.

Two HAIR DRYERS and four white Komono style bathrobes are available.

You will find enough towels for your personal use and another set of two big Beach Towels. You will find the same set of fancy towels in both bathrooms and hopefully you like them as much as we do.

We provide rain bath refreshing shower and bath gel from NEUTROGENA. You Just have to Bring Your Own Toothbrush and your personal items.

Wireless High Speed Internet Access is FREE!

PARKING on the premises is FREE!

We, Peter and Monika, are the owners since 2006 and since then we manage and rent our condo ONLY OURSELVES. Sometimes we need the help of some professional companies for the work and repair we are not able to do.

BUILDING Information:

The whole building was repainted in 2016 with bright yellow and violet stripes and it is very showy and stands out.

This building was constructed in 2000/2001 and remodeled and updated in 2005. There are all together 40 units on six floors, but only 10 corner units with 2 bed/2 bathrooms with 925 sq Ft and the big balcony of 100 sq Ft facing the beaches with full view to accommodate up to 6 guests, best suited for 2 - 4 adults and/or 2 smaller children.

Please look at the photos again: We take all these photos ourselves, so this is what you see and NO MANIPULATION is done.

On April 06, 2013, The New Beach Trail was opened and built by the City of Treasure Island. The new $ 1,2 million trail now meanders parallel to the Gulf of Mexico behind our condo building, with more than twenty beach access nodes along the path linked to street entrances along Gulf Boulevard. Turtle-friendly lighting lines the trail and decorative nautical images are embedded, through a sandblasting technique, into the tan and ruby-red concrete. One of the best features of the new trail is the sand wall, capped with a bench top, which provides a nearly two miles long seat along the Gulf of Mexico.

You can stroll along water's edge to famous JOHN'S PASS VILLAGE with all the diversity you can imagine; many different RESTAURANTS, para-gliding or para-sailing, boat- or water scooter rentals and you can even rent a bicycle and explore the neighborhood.

Restaurants on the beach with MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT are 'Sloppy Joes' and different pizzerias, cafes and more restaurants, newly opened is Feola's Italian Ristorante situated along the walkway.

PUBLIX opened a new store for groceries and everything you need for a relaxed vacation here in Treasure Island close by only seven minutes away by car. You park your car on the ground level in the shade and enter the elevators to the second floor for shopping. How cool is this?

New restaurants open in walking distance and also a New BEACH SHOP with an Ice cream parlor. A BUS STOP is on Gulf Boulevard close by and you are invited to take a stroll by bus from CLEARWATER BEACH to PASS-A-GRILL, approx. 35 miles along our beaches for about $ 1.50 per person in 2016.

Attractions in DRIVING DISTANCE :

If you like to explore the CITY OF ST. PETERSBURG, we recommend in downtown different very interesting Museums, i.e. the NEW DALI Museum with changing additional exhibits, the NEW CHIHULY Glass blowing COLLECTION and the History Museum with the FIRST COMMERCIAL AIRLINE in the United States flying across Tampa Bay in 1921 between St. Petersburg and Tampa. The INTERNATIONAL ART MUSEUM wing, overlooking Tampa Bay.

There is Straub Park to stroll along and you find many new and exquisite shops, small galleries, cafes and restaurants to sit outside - just get the Floridian Feeling! All locations are on famous BEACH DRIVE and experience the new opening of the shopping center in Sun Dial Square.

As a Day Trip recommendation from us would be to drive over to Tampa and visit Tampa Aquarium, Busch Gardens with all the exciting adventures, Lowery Zoo or further to Orlando with the Disney Attractions. It will take you about one to two and a half hours driving time to get there.

Tampa International Airport gets a facelift and an International South American Airline flies directly from Tampa to Panama with the connections to the whole continent of South America and started in November 2016 to CUBA. Lufthansa flies direct to Frankfurt/Germany and from there you connect to the rest of the eastern world.

The Port of Tampa is getting more important also. From the Port many different Cruise Lines part to different destinations to the Caribbean Islands, Middle and South America and NEW since May 2016 to CUBA.

About Monika & Peter Gewecke

We are a family of four and are originally from Germany. When Peter retired in 1994, we decided to replace our home in Germany/ Berlin and Duesseldorf to live here in Florida, in Treasure Island. Peter is my husband of almost 49 years, now I am the smallest in the family, as you can see in this photo taken in 2012. Markus is our older son and Stefan is our younger son. Only Peter and I live here and our sons and their families live and work in Germany. They all come and visit us, when their time allows them to do so. We, as parents, have more time and we fly regularly to Germany to visit them. We love our new primary home on Isle of Capri in the City of Treasure Island, where we met many wonderful people and became friends with many of them and we also enjoy our good and quiet neighborhood. I am an avid League tennis player hitting the tiny yellow balls in my free time.

Besides this, our main goal is our business/condo rental and, of course, YOU - OUR GUESTS. We live almost year round here in Treasure Island to take the time and pride to give you an outstanding service.

Monika & Peter Gewecke purchased this condo in 2006

Why Monika & Peter Gewecke chose Treasure Island

LOCATION - Prime Location!!!

DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH.

We bought this condo, an end unit from north/east to south totally facing the beaches. Both bedrooms are facing north, very important here in Florida, keeping the sun out and staying cool. Facing south/west are balcony and living room with kitchen.

Our condo is on the 5th floor out of 6 floors. From every window and every room you have direct views to the beaches to the horizon, the Gulf of Mexico. Our condo offers 925 sq Ft and a big balcony of 100 sq Ft in full view of the beaches and FACING TOTALLY the beaches and is fully furnished to the best of our own European/Floridian taste.

Being DIRECTLY situated on the beach, this condo is airy, bright and with light colors in white and yellow being the dominant colors. You can enjoy the most amazing sunsets from the big balcony facing the beaches.

Before we choose living here in Florida, we traveled around the world to many different places and countries and decided to be part of this beautiful wide beach here in Florida's calm and sunny part of the world.

On a very private note: I was Stewardess/Flight Attendant with Air Canada, being multilingual, English, French, German and stationed in Montreal and in Toronto and spent my vacation at that time in Treasure Island. Yes, I really did this and I fell in love with this city of Treasure Island.

I married my husband Peter, who is DIPL.-ING, Master's Degree in engineering from the University of Berlin, had two boys, and we all lived in Germany for many years. After Peter retired we both decided to stay and live here. Our adult boys live and work with their families in Germany.

What makes this condo unique

NEW in 2016/Information 2017.

We installed new sliding glass doors in the living room towards the balcony. They run smoothly and are according to the latest standards and requirements for Hurricane Proof Windows and Doors. Proof with Hurricane Irma in September 2017. No damage.

This condo building, built in 2000/2001, remodeled in 2004/2005 and repainted in 2016 has a fantastic name: SOUTH BEACH CONDO HOTEL. The first impression you get while arriving are the distinctive colors on the facade: Bright Yellow, softer yellow and dark Violet. On the outside of the two staircases you see the name in big letters, lit at night: SOUTH BEACH.

It is so outstanding and unique, everybody knows this building! Really South Beach Colors!

In 2004/05 the whole building was refurbished and updated with granite counter tops and new appliances. We, Peter and Monika, always re-decorate and update the furnishing and window decorations throughout the different rooms.

In January 2017 we installed new decorations of dark blue/black curtains to block out the lights at night. We also installed a new 40 " Smart TV in the master bedroom and in August 2017 a 50 " SMART TV in the living room.

We really fell in love with this building and condo because of the LOCATION. Location is a MUST being DIRECTLY ON THE BEACHES, no neighbors disturbing your views and a quiet and serene surrounding. You only hear the waves from the Gulf of Mexico while sitting on the balcony.

We, the owners, Peter and Monika , put a Special Folder in our condo for you to browse through all the different venues, attractions, shopping, etc. which Treasure Island and neighboring towns have to offer. We always update this folder.

Treasure Island has the most beautiful and wide beaches with bright white sand in Pinellas County. Our coastline starts at Clearwater Beach on the northern point of the islands and ends in Pass-A-Grill, the most southern destination, 34 miles altogether over a couple of bridges over the Intracoastal Waterways.

From our condo you can walk for hours and miles without crossing any street and there is no traffic allowed at all on our beaches.

I like to point out that dogs are not allowed on the beaches, only on a leach in company of an adult on the walkways.

Grocery Shopping at Publix is a pleasure, because it is only five minutes away by car, as well as Walgreens is close by. In town we have the post office , different banks and speciality shops like flower shop, a gym, new: oil and vinigar, ABC wine store and many more.

For your additional exploring - about 20 minutes by car south from us - is Fort de Soto National Park. In this park which is located on the mouth of Tampa Bay, you can admire nature all surrounding you. If you like you can explore the old Fort, built in 1898, but was never active. There are some old canons on display and the whole area is part of old Floridian History.

Many Restaurants of different tastes are in walking distance from the condo. Just to mention a few: Middle Grounds (excellent), The Pearl, next to the clock tower, (excellent) a couple of Pizza places or just grab a sandwich at Foxi's. On the beaches itself, walking from our condo only five minutes on the beach walkway, is an Italian Restaurant Feola's and Sloppy Joe.

Besides this, there is John Pass Village, a tourist attractions and friendly village in walking distance from our condo along the shoreline. It will take you about fifteen minutes walking from our condo building. John Pass Village has about two hundred different venues and a couple of restaurants for you to explore. At John Pass is a board-walk, from which you can admire wild playing dolphins while drinking a cup of coffee or tea or having an ice-cream, home made!

The New DALI Museum in downtown St. Petersburg is about the Spanish extraordinary artist Salvadore Dali and opened in January 2011. The building itself is already spectacular from the outside. Another First Class Museum is the world glass artist Dale CHIHULY from California.

St. Petersburg is a beautiful and very unique city of about 250.000 inhabitants, situated directly on Tampa Bay with new condo buildings and also old and historic different hotels. It is really worthwhile to walk around Straub Park and have a seat in one of the many restaurants and locales.

Other activities here on our beaches are: Skite Flying, Sand Sculptures, Sun Bathing, and there is something for everybody to do.

Golf and Tennis: For you and your family the city of Treasure Island offers the Treasure Bay public Golf and Tennis Courts for reasonable prices. The Golf course has 9 holes and there are 10 clay like Har-true tennis courts. This facility is located on the Intracoastal Waterway with wide views over the water and in summer there is always a breeze which makes it easy for all guests to play outside.

Shopping: Close by is Tyrone Mall, where you find International and national suppliers, like H & M, Macys, etc. and also different restaurants to relax after the shopping tour.

About 30 minutes south, close to Sarasota, is the Outlet Mall Ellenton with hundreds of shops and many different restaurants. Enough temptation for everybody.

We are sure you will find a gift and a souvenir for all your loved ones at home.

New in the Fall of 2016 and continuing in 2017: The Ferry Service from John's Pass along the different small towns like hop on and continue later with another boat ride. At the moment this service is only on the weekends available.

Treasure Bay Public Club to play Golf and Tennis with very reasonable prices. The Gulf Course has 9 wholes and the Tennis Club has 8 courts, no hard courts. This community club is beautifully situated on the tip of the Intracoastal Waterways.

Great location, great condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a fun time in Treasure Island. Monika was very friendly and accommodating. The condo was clean, decorated nicely, had what we needed, from beach and bath towels, to kitchen amenities, and right on the beach, with a perfect view. Nice outdoor pool and a quiet, pretty walking path along the beach, and walking distance to a few restaurants. We walked across the bridge to John's Pass, a charming village of privately owned shops. We had a great time and recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: Dear Mike, thank you so much for your great review with substance. I like your wording and it is so personalized, that other interested guests can understand why we deserve so many 5 stars with this perfect location. Yes, you don't really need a car to get around in Treasure Island from our condo. You can walk and within 15 minutes you are at Publix or Walgreens, many restaurants of different styles and especially to walk along water's edge to John's Pass is perfect. We are happy to hear that you had a wonderful 25th Anniversary Celebration - just the two of you to celebrate this milestone in your personal life. We wish you all the best for the next 25 years in good spirit and fun living together. Monika and Peter - almost married 49 years!

Owner's Response: Dear Ivi and Dave, It is always my pleasure to meet and greet you personally in our condo and to give you the tour of our condo. This makes it easy for you to know all the details and you can fully emerge into your vacation spirit right away. You told me, that your daughter and family lives in Tampa and they visited you during your stay and enjoyed the view from our 5th floor over the wide beaches especially at sunset. The sunsets now in the cooler weather are breathtaking, the skies are violet and pink in all colors, it is the perfect postcard photo. Thanks for staying in our condo and perhaps we will meet you again. Monika and Peter

Beautiful, well equipped condo

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed a short visit this time in Treasure Island, but loved the view of the evening sunsets. Everything we needed was in the condo. Hoping to get back again next year. Highly recommend this condo in Treause Island.

Owner's Response: Dear Patricia and family, Yes, you stayed only for 4 nights in our condo with your family. Your two children, ages, 8 and 6, were very well educated and you left our condo in an outstanding condition. You helped me with the towels and the linen, just wonderful, to get the condo ready for the new guests, who arrived also from Canada the same day in the afternoon. You stayed in our condo building for the 5th time and with us for the first time, because our condo is only rented by us, the private owners. From the 5th floor being DIRECTLY ON THE BEACH you have an outstanding view over the white sand and the new green islands with palm trees keeping the sand from flying around and eroding the beaches. Thanks and you are more than welcome to stay again with us in the future. Monika and Peter

Owner's Response: Hello, Sharon and husband, It was my pleasure meeting you personally and to make you familiar with all the amenities we have to offer in our condo. As you told me, that this was your first visit to this area in Treasure Island, you attended a Meeting in St. Petersburg before and stayed in our condo without a car and you walked to all the restaurants and to the grocery store, Publix. You used the FREE beach shuttle service and you were very happy with this extra service by Treasure Island besides taking the bus for $ 2. You had a wonderful time visiting downtown St. Petersburg and the Dali Museum and then returning to the calm and cozy condo. Thank you for leaving our condo in excellent condition and you are more than welcome to come back anytime in the future. Monika

Lovely beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

Our sisters getaway was made perfect with this beach-front condo. Everything about the condo was even better than portrayed in the listing. The personal attention by Monika, from greeting us on arrival, offering numerous tips to enhance our vacation on the sun coast, to her friendly farewell, made us feel like long-time friends. The condo was spotlessly clean, everything we needed was there. Morning coffee on the balcony, sitting on the comfortable patio chairs, with sweeping end-unit views over the beach to the water, was a great way to start each day. Not only is the condo really nice, the entire property, the grounds, the pool, etc., are well maintained. We found the quiet, comfortable community of Treasure Island to be so welcoming, compared to the touristy chaos we saw at Clearwater Beach to the North. We were all so glad that we chose this property over the many others that we considered, and you will too.

Owner's Response: Hello Diane and your sisters, It was really my pleasure meeting you all and I think we had a good connection right from the beginning, when you arrived really late - not by your own fault - but the rental car company at the airport in Tampa was too far away. We laughed it off. I prepared a bowl of fresh fruits for you, as well as bottles of sparkling water and a bottle of Riesling in the refrigerator. You told me on your day of departure that you prefer your wine with a meal and therefore, the bottle of wine was not wasted, it will be reserved for the next guests. The weather during your stay felt like in September, temperatures around 80's and the temperature of the water in the Gulf of Mexico was very comfortable for a prolonged swim. You left our condo/investment impeccable and you helped me with washing the linen and towels, a big thank you to these wonderful Ladies. I look forward to meeting you hopefully again in the future. We love guests like you are. Monika and Peter

Balcony is great - you receive a nice breeze as it is end unit and that was marvelous. Nice balcony size as well. I feel it is very important and appreciated that the owners listen to suggestions from vacationers and have implemented the suggestions. I am a reader and those reading lamps in bedroom were great. Very well maintained condo with detail-oriented owners!

Owner's Response: Dear Cindy and family, thank you for your friendly review. I like to reciprocate your compliments, as you were easy going guests. I like to mention that there was a mandatory evacuation of our beaches in Treasure Island because of Hurricane Irma. Everything went very smooth, we did not have any problems, no power shortage, no water contaminated, no beach erosion - We were lucky and well prepared. You, as our guests, left to drive home to Chicago on Thursday evening and you did not have any problems. You are wonderful guests and more than welcome to come back next year - without any hurricanes. Monika and Peter

Dear guests,
Only with the receipt of your deposit, you have secured your booking with us. Until then, we reserve the right to book our condo with another interested guest.
Cancellation:
45 days prior to your arrival: Deposit refund = 100 % (minus $ 100 cancellation fee)
Less than 45 days, no deposit refund.
Less than 1 month prior to your arrival: We have to discuss your personal situation, but normally, NO Refund.
If you paid already the full amount of your rent and you have to cancel, we have to find an agreement which suits us both.
NORMALLY NO REFUND, unless I find another renter for your booked and reserved days.
We want to ensure you and you can trust us, that when we had cancellations in the past, we always found another renter to stay in our condo for your reserved days, sometimes at a lower rate or a Last Minute Deal.
By Special Request from a former guest:
Please leave our condo/investment in the condition prior to your arrival so that future guests can enjoy our beautiful and well kept condo also. To be more specific:
Do not leave any open or used left overs in the refrigerator, empty all garbage cans, do not take anything with you which does not belong to you or your family members and please do not destroy anything.
Please put the big striped pool/ beach towels by themselves in the washing machine and dryer in the evening before you leave, because they take extra time drying.
Please place the used white towels in the washing machine in the morning before you leave and start the process of the washing machine. Washing liquid is provided by us. Take the used linen off the beds and put them on one bed altogether.
Please start the dishwasher or put the clean dishes back in the appropriate cupboards.
All this said, I kindly ask you to help me getting the condo ready for the new guests.

The final inspection and cleaning is the responsibility of the owners, Monika and Peter Gewecke.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
