Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms and 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This is a fairly new condominium is directly on pristine 'St Pete Beach'. The building is directly on the beautiful white sandy beach and our unit has an amazing southwest view. It is independently managed to ensure exceptional cleaning, luxury towels and linens,and excellent customer service. We also have many extra amenities specific to our unit which include a 36 inch LCD TV, 50 inch Plasma TV in living room, Tempurpedic-like King Mattress in master bedroom, twin beds in 2nd bedroom, and new master bedroom and living room furniture, 2 new patio chairs with ottoman. Additional information can be emailed to you upon request.

This particular unit in the building has the BEST COMBINATION OF FLOOR PLAN, GULF VIEW and POOL VIEW available. It has a double balcony off the living room and master bedroom which overlooks the gorgeous, white, sandy beach and an inviting pool and hot tub. The kitchen, dining room, and living room are open and spacious with lots of light. The 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds and a flat screen tv with dvd player. The master bedroom has a new high quality king mattress set with Tommy Bahama comforter and luxury linens. (Please see photo with mattress description below.) We also just purchased a brand new flat screen LCD tv for the living room.

The unit is fully furnished, professionally decorated, and maintained to high standards. It has a fully-equipped spacious kitchen and two full baths, all of which have beautiful, 'granite countertops'. The main living area has beautiful, beige tile and the master bedroom has a textured designer carpet. The large dining area is situated between the living and kitchen areas and can seat 4-5 people comfortably. The unit is approximately 750 sq ft plus the balcony. A floor plan can be seen as one of the photos in this listing below also.

Just a short walk through the pool area and out to the white sandy beach, you can find a nice peaceful spot to sit and relax. After enjoying the peaceful gulf waters, watching the seaguls, listening to the ocean, and feeling the sunshine, you can easily walk back to the condo, take a dip in the pool, and walk the beach to a nice restaurant or enjoy a meal that you can prepare yourself in our fully equipped kitchen.

Walking the beach to the south is the beautiful and historical 'Don Cesar Hotel', where you can enjoy a nice lunch, dinner, or ice cream. On the walk there you will pass an outdoor, beach bar/restaurant with volleyball, live music and great casual food. Just to the north are other fantastic beach-side tiki bars and restaurants which are in walking distance.

As for activities, there is a beach rental place for water bikes, kayaks, jet skis, sail boats, etc... about a half mile north of our unit. We recommend the parasailing. It is an unforgettable experience where you will see some exceptional views. There are also fishing, snorkeling, dolpin-watching, sunset sailing boat trips and more at a marina less than a mile away from our unit.

(visit the website for 'dolphinlandings' on St. Pete Beach for more details).

Additionally, Busch Gardens Amusement Park, great museums, and excellent shopping are all nearby. 'Disney World' is just a 2 hour drive.

With our unit, you can enjoy the 'PERSONAL TOUCH' of a privately-managed beach condominium. We may be able to offer early check-in or late check-out depending on our guest schedule. Since we live nearby and visit the unit often, we have added some items which make it a comfortable beach retreat for monthly stays. Please let me know if you have any special requests and I will try to accommodate you. We want you to have a fabulous vacation and return year after year!

About Donna

My husband, David, and I have 2 boys and we live about 45 minutes from our beach condo. David is a sales engineer and I am a computer analyst in addition to handling the rental of our condo. We lead busy lives since we work full time during the week and also are very involved with the boys schooling and activities. I enjoy handling the rental of our one condo since I feel that I have more control over providing the best vacation possible for my guests. I love getting to know all my guests, hearing from them year after year, and sharing my beach retreat with them. It is extremely rewarding work for me, and still is after 14 years.

Donna purchased this condo in 2003

Why Donna chose Belle Vista

David and I have traveled all around the world and have seen many places. Additionally, we have lived in several Florida towns and have selected the Clearwater/St. Pete area as our home. We love St. Pete Beach for many reasons, and particularily our area of the the beach. Every time we visited the condo, prior to purchasing, we noticed that the beach and water was beautiful and peaceful at all hours of the day. The sand is like white sugar and the water is great for swimming or floating. We love long walks on the beach and stopping for lunch, dinner, or drinks along the way. Our boys enjoy playing paddle ball, building sand castles, and boogie boarding in the water. It is a great place to create family memories that will last forever. I also can't forget the importance of allowing us to rejuvenate and relax (There are no crowds, traffic, or rushing around...only the sounds of the ocean, sitting or walking on the beach, and watching beautiful sunsets.) The condo has been a real blessing.

What makes this condo unique

With our unit, you get a spacious living area that accommodates a family of 4 very comfortably. Long stays are easy since it is equipped with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, designer furnishings, luxury linens, and more. You get the peace and serenity of being directly on the beautiful beach. Additionally, we hope you will get some restful nights sleep on an extremely comfortable king temperpedic-like bed with luxury pillows and linens. You can also enjoy our large 50 inch plasma TV in the living room when you want to cool-off in the air conditioning. New, quality master bedroom furniture including a large dresser to store all your clothes was just delivered, August 10, 2017.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at St. Pete Beach, our first time here. Condo was great, warm, plenty of room! Great views from the balcony! Couldn't have asked for prettier weather.

Perfect beachfront cond complex, but certainly not luxury inside

  • 2 of 5

The condo complex was very nice, clean, well maintained pool, hot tub, and grounds, staff friendly and helpful access to beach awesome. No additional parking for any visitors you might have though. The condo itself, however, was far from the word luxury, for over $300/night it was certainly a disappointment. Upon entering the front door, frame was rusting and peeling which I did not notice on any neighboring condos, inside we were greeted with an old, tired looking interior which has apparently not been updated in a few decades, The kitchen was clean with good supplies(dishes, glasses, pots and pans), however, the garbage disposal did not work, all the racks in the dishwasher were broken and rusted . the washer and dryer did work well. The couch was worn out and sand noted under the sofa cushions, the throw pillows were deplorable and old. The dining table was acceptable but the chair cushions were old and drab. The master bedroom did have what appears to be a new headboard and dresser as was the dresser in the living area, however, they were covered with plastic which was taped down with scotch tape, a smaller runner covered part of the plastic( while I am sure the owner wanted to protect the top of the furniture it certainly was not inviting and could certainly have been done in better way, The master bedroom mattress was new and the linens were good, however, the bedspread again was old and worn looking with curtains that did not match, Nice towels were provided as were beach towels. There were 3 nice TVs in each room and the balcony view was very nice. As we had guests for a couple of nights we gave them the master suite and bathroom and we stayed in the front bedroom ( this should not be listed as 2 bedrooms as there is no closet in the smaller bedroom and only a bifold door for privacy , which would be okay for 2 children not adults) The second bathroom tiles had dirty grout, and worn sink and tub, The tub did not drain well and I would be standing in 2 inches of water by the time I was done in the shower , the sink also drained poorly. There is also only one minimal closet for hanging up clothes. We were very disappointed in the condo itself and were embarrassed to entertain our guests there, One can certainly not label this a luxury condo inside and feel it was misrepresented. This condo could be very nice but is in great need of updating.

Over priced for aminities

  • 3 of 5

Location is nice if you don’t mind being over the pool area, Owners are very nice, master mattress is new, other not so great, Take your necessities as tissue, soap and such are skimpy at best. Kitchen is not great for cooking. Grills were in need of repairs and pool heater went out on our 2nd day and parking is a nightmare. Don’t forget beach towels!!

Owner's Response: Marie, I am glad you enjoyed the beach and pool front location of the condo. It is unfortunate that you experienced the pool heater issue, as it is extremely rare. Next time, please notify me immediately, and we can work with the onsite property manager to get it fixed quickly. The new gas grills are frequently used, and onsite maintenance works hard to keep them in the best cleanliness and working order. As for the kitchen, several guests have commented as to having everything you need in a beach condo. We have all the appliances you would need and more, along with new high-quality cookware and utensils. We provide our guests with dishwasher tablets, laundry detergent pods, trash bags, dish sponge, paper towels, 2 rolls of toilet paper in each bathroom, and small soaps in each bathroom. I appreciate your comment, and we are upgrading these cleaning and toiletry items. As with most beach condos, parking spaces are a premium, and there is 1 parking space per unit. When the building is full and we cannot secure a guest space, we recommend an alternative lot. Thank you again for your stay at Vistas on the Gulf on one of America's Best Beaches! Kind Regards, Donna

Nice quiet small condo on the Gulf

  • 4 of 5

Had a good trip, we were there the week after Thanksgiving so it was extremely quiet. For the most part, we had the place to ourselves . The condo is a little tired and small , I would not recommend for more than three.

Very nice, clean condo with a wonderful view.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a lovely stay at this condo for our 60th birthdays. The unit is clean, well appointed and the owners are people who CARE! All the little things were considered and in proper order. In addition to the unit being well appointed, the overall property was in pristine condition! Our thanks for a wonderful stay.
