About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)


This condo was built on the island of Tierra Verde, which has similar geography to the Florida Keys. This fairly narrow island is bounded by the Gulf of Mexico to the west and Tampa Bay to the east. We are easily accessible by driving interstate highways to within six miles of our building. Tampa International Airport is a twenty five minute drive.

What sets this condo apart is the view of Tampa Bay and the privacy you will enjoy from the balcony. The building is located right at the waterfront without any other buildings obstructing the view. You will gaze on miles of open water, framed by palm trees and shoreline mangroves. Sometimes, you will observe dolphins and manatee as they swim just off shore. Our large private balcony is only sixty feet from the water. From the balcony, living room and dining room, you can enjoy the tranquil and peaceful views. We invite you to browse through the photos to see why the view will reel you in and never let you go.

The condo itself sleeps six guests. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a full bathroom. The guest bedroom has two twin beds. The living room has a queen size sleep sofa. The second full bathroom is located across the hall from the guest bedroom. There is a dining room and a full kitchen. The kitchen has ample dinnerware and cooking utensils. The entire condo has porcelain tile floors. High speed internet and cable TV with DVR/DVD Recorder are included as well as local and long distance phone. The patio has a table and chairs. This unit is located on the second floor with a private staircase. The second floor allows us to have an advantageous vantage point of the water.

Holiday Island Condo Association has a superbly laid out resort style setting. As you enter the grounds, you will notice ample off street parking. The buildings are positioned with access to a large green area that leads our guests to the pool and hot tub which are located near the water. We also have a large club house, exercise room, tennis courts and laundry facilities. There are rental boat slips when available. A large public playground is located directly across the street from the property.


You may bring your own kayak and launch it directly from our shared dock. You may also bring your own bicycles to enjoy the bike path which is accessible from our property. From the bike path, you can ride into Fort DeSoto. Fort DeSoto is a Pinellas County Park, ranked the number one beach in the United States in 2005. The park has miles and miles of beautiful beaches. From the park you can rent bikes or kayaks, purchase refreshments, take a ferry ride to Eggmont Island, picnic, rollerblade, collect shells, fish, camp, launch boats, take kite boarding lessons or just play in the beautiful white sand.

Activities (on site or nearby):

You can choose from two different environments. Tierra Verde has a peaceful quiet setting but just a short drive away you can immerse yourself in the big city environments of St. Pete Beach, St. Petersburg or the many communities of Tampa Bay.

There is so much to do! Choose your favorite activities. A few of the larger area attractions include professional baseball (Tampa Bay Rays), professional football (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), professional hockey (Tampa Bay Lightning), Arena Football League (Tampa Bay Storm), Busch Gardens Theme Park and the Salvador Dali Museum. Disney World is less the ninety miles away, and makes for a great day trip. Check the web for the many Tampa area attractions that are too numerous to list.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We've thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at Holiday Island, A-12. It must be the BEST unit for view, sun exposure, (great sunrises) dolphin entertainment, birds (especially the great egret who'd sit on the railing and delight us!), pool, hot tub and grill dock. The grounds are immaculate, everything kept neat.

The decor is great: decals on windows, shells, paintings, wall colors, tiled floors, etc. All guests found the unit lovely as well.

We'd rate the 5*'s

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the views very much. Manatees , Dolphins and bird watching from the balcony! Everything we needed was there and very clean. Very good internet connection. Good and quick communication with the owner. The only minor item that could be improved to our opinion is the door closer. It was very powerful, making it rather awkward entering with your hands full of groceries. Hope to be back some day!

Great stay.

  • 5 of 5

The vacation was great. Unit was very clean and the views were great. The moon was full and larger than life so sitting on the balcony was great. The unit and property are all very well maintained.

Wonderful condo and location

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean and functional and in a terrific location for our family of four. This is probably the best unit in the complex with views of the bay. The tennis courts, pool and hot tub are great, the fishing was good considering it was cold and the Ft. Desoto pass on the fridge, beach chairs and umbrella were a welcome touch and enjoyed the short drive to spend time there on the beach and did some fishing there too. Walking distance to Billy's, Island Grill, great pizza and other restaurants. The owner was very good to deal with and would rent from him again.

Southern Escape

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to this area and we had a great time. Great area for walking on the beaches, cycling, and site seeing up and down the coast. The condo has everything you need to relax and enjoy time away. The property was clean, and neat as noted in the photos. The owner was always helpful and available whenever we had questions or concerns.

Easy to work with. We plan to return soon. Thanks
