Why Jay and Kim Thomson chose Saint Petersburg

My husband and I have been vacationing in the St. Pete Beach area for the past 25 years. We have fond memories of many family vacations. Our children have grown to love this place as much as we do. We have spent many hours walking along the beach. There is something so soothing and relaxing about being next to the water and enjoying the sound of the gentle waves. Our plan is to continue to vacation here when possible while offering our condo to you as a vacation rental. We have decorated our unit with pride, while always considering your comfort and enjoyment too.

What makes this Condo unique

There are many things that we love about the St. Pete Beach area. We want to share just a few of them with you. First of all, the climate is terrific year round. The atmosphere is friendly and laid back. The beaches are some of the best anywhere. We love to walk and have found that the beaches here are wide and long and allow for us to walk or jog comfortably. There are many restaurants nearby which offer good food, reasonable prices and wonderful water views. We love Pass-a-Grille. It is a sleepy little historic part of St. Pete beach with a Key West feel without the crowds. It is just a couple of minutes from our condo. There is a wonderful promenade along the water. The sunsets are ceremoniously celebrated each evening with the ringing of the bell. This takes place on the beach at the Paradise Grill where we have enjoyed the live music on Friday nights. The list goes on. We’re sure you will enjoy your stay here and will want to return year after year. Welcome!

                                                                heather a.

                                                                The condo was beautifully decorated and equipped with everything anyone could possibly need, all of which was of high quality. Views from the balcony were outstanding providing an opportunity to see manatees, dolphins, and numerous sea-birds in their natural environment. My wife took advantage of the very well equipped fitness center of the second floor and we both used the library on the third floor. The grounds throughout Isla del Sol are tended carefully and the development is beautifully landscaped making for enjoyable morning and anytime walks. The swimming pool area is well set up with plenty of room for owners/guests. There was one minor issue to which the owners responded quickly and effectively thus ensuring a trouble-free vacation. If privacy is important, be assured that you will not be disturbed other than by the occasional cries of sea-birds. We were somewhat disappointed that there is no place to barbecue—for obvious reasons not in the condo but neither near the pool area nor any other venue. As well, for those who prefer the beach option, it is accessible with a five to ten minute drive to lovely beaches. The residents, whether living there or vacationing are very friendly and most welcomingl. My wife and I would, without reservation recommend this condo very highly as a desired vacation destination.

                                                                This was a great vacation. The unit was impeccable-clean and in top notch condition. All possible furnishing and equipment details present and organized so they're easy to find. Private covered parking, panoramic views of Bay, bridges and adjacent properties. Wonderful wildlife including dolphins, pelicans ,egrets etc. Pool and exercise areas convenient and immaculate. Beaches, restaurants, St Pete all within short drive easy reach. Can,t go wrong with this rental for relaxation, beauty , and convenience. Owners are remarkably attentive to detail, and are friendly, helpful folks--second time we've stayed in one of their units, and wouldn't hesitate to do so again- we recommend with no reservations

                                                                Beautiful neighborhood, near to beach and downtown.

                                                                You feel at home regarding living space, closets, kitchen accesories , maintanance and cleanness.

                                                                Great view....after 1.00pm. Sunshine is so strong all morning that window screen must remain closed and terrace is a furnace

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                We want to thank our guest for his feedback.

                                                                He enjoyed the general sense of feeling “at home” in our condo including the spacious closets, the well-appointed and equipped kitchen. He was able to experience our brand new stainless-steel appliances including deluxe French door refrigerator with automatic icemaker and filtered water dispenser.

                                                                Our guest acknowledged the fact that we offer a well-maintained and clean space for our guests to enjoy their vacation. We are always finding ways to improve and enhance our guests’ experience by keeping everything clean and fresh and new! We are extremely particular about maintenance and cleanliness. In addition to a full clean after each stay, we ensure a professional tile and carpet cleaning occurs on a quarterly basis and we are always making sure that there are no paint chips or scuff marks on the walls.

                                                                This guest loved the view from the balcony, which is panoramic, right at the water’s edge and allows guests to enjoy the beautiful wildlife (dolphins, rays, manatee, pelicans, roseate spoonbills, osprey). We provide binoculars for our guests’ enjoyment of the views.

                                                                As most of our guests are arriving at our condo from cooler climates (especially in December), they are longing to sit on our balcony and enjoy the warm sunshine, as they enjoy their morning coffee or a meal. This is the first time we have had a guest express a concern about the warm sunshine! December is generally more temperate in climate and temperatures are generally a few degrees cooler in this area. Also, the shortest days of the year occur in December, which is why we were surprised that after 1pm, in December, he found the heat of the sun unbearable. Of course, we offer air conditioning in our condo, so there is never a need to have the heat of the sun coming into the condo. Typically, our guests would close the sheer blinds on the windows to soften the sun’s rays and/or turn on the air conditioner and close the glass windows and sliding doors.

                                                                We were also surprised to hear the beds were “awful and they couldn’t rest all month.” We were in constant communication with our guest throughout his stay and this was not mentioned.

                                                                While we are disappointed this guest was not completely satisfied with his stay, we will always continue to do our best to ensure our guests have an exceptional experience at Bahia Pointe.

                                                                Exactly what we hoped for.

                                                                Jessica T.

                                                                My partner and I spent a vacation in another property owned by the same couple who own Unit 807 and although we were initially disappointed that the other place was booked, we were very pleasantly surprised to find that the same amount of effort and attention to detail had gone into this unit. It was clean, well equipped and as comfortable as our own home. We hope to return again next year.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Beautiful condo with everything you need!

                                                                We stayed at this wonderful condo for over 3 months, while shopping for a new home in the area. Kim and Jay had everything in the unit that we needed for our long stay. The view is amazing and we saw all kinds of birds and dolphins every day. All the neighbors were very friendly and the pool convenient and fun. Internet and cable were fast and reliable. Parking is covered and convenient. There is a very extensive exercise room with any kind of equipment you could want. It's a short drive to downtown St. Pete and the beaches on the Gulf and there are so many things to do in the area. We would recommend this condo for an excellent vacation spot. Thanks to Kim and Jay for their hospitality.

                                                                My fiance and I spent 5 nights at this beautiful condo and we could not have asked for a more comfortable, more relaxing or more enjoyable stay. The condo was immaculate and very well organized - we had everything we needed to cook our meals at home - but we also ventured out to some amazing nearby restaurants based on recommendations Kim and Jay had provided for us in their condo binder. We spent lots of time on the balcony enjoying the view, the sunsets, and the dolphins! The pool was clean and very well kept, not too busy either. We felt very much at home at the condo and we would go back in a heartbeat... hopefully for longer next time!

We love to hear that you've enjoyed the views from the balcony and the comfort of the condo and building amenities as much as we do! We'll forward to your return.
