About Jo Ann Diaz
My husband and I love to travel, we are in construction and do all our own repairs and cleaning for our rentals. We have 6 grandchildren that live local and we love to share the beach with them. They all are very active swimmers, and into competitive sports. Please check out our other rental on the ground floor. VRBO listing # 1099077
Jo Ann Diaz purchased this Apartment in 1990
Why Jo Ann Diaz chose Saint Petersburg
We chose our Sunset Beach condo because we love the beach and the location it is within 1 hour of our home. Sunset beach is known for its sunsets, the soft white sand and is great for long walks. We have dolphins that swim by daily. We have great sea shell hunting, and parrots that come to our shade trees. You could never be bored. There is wild life abundant. It is a beautiful place to relax and have fun.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our beach front property is one of a kind. You could not be closer to the beach anywhere in our area. We are only steps from the privacy of our property to the open sand and beautiful Sunset Beach. We are unique on the beach because we have a beautiful flower garden. We get compliments frequently. The beach side of our property has it's own private walk way to the beach. It is very private, quiet and a great place to relax and read a book. Sitting on the deck drinking your morning coffee and eating breakfast is a great past time. The view of the Gulf is beautiful.

Beautiful beachfront condo
We had a fantastic week in Parrotdise! Beautiful condo right on the Gulf with fantastic views. It was so nice to be able to just sit on the deck and watch the ocean whenever we wanted to. Close to everything. It was very easy to get to Clearwater and to Tampa. Lots of great restaurants around for dinner and Caddy’s was a very short walk down the beach for breakfast every morning. The washer/dryer in the unit was very convenient, as was the full kitchen. We will definitely be returning!
Thank you Lori and Ray
We really enjoyed meeting you. You are always welcome to return. We are glad you enjoyed the deck that overlooks the tropical garden and the beach. Visitors do not realize how close we are to the beach until they actually get here. See you soon.
We enjoyed our stay very much!
The view is awesome, the beach is very close and has very easy access! Everybody was real friendly and you still have a lot of privacy and everything you need for the beach,cooking and shopping and eating out is close by with many choices! The condo is very clean and in very good repair! We would recommend it and stay again!
Thank you for your review of our beach rental.
We enjoyed meeting you and glad you had a nice vacation at our home away from home. You are always welcome to return. Jo An
I had a wonderful time at this condo. It was very clean and comfortable. Everything is in good condition, especially the deck furniture which many owners skimp on. I definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a place right on the gulf.
Thank you Ruth for your nice review. I am glad that you enjoyed our large deck with the open view of the beach and our tropical garden. We look forward to your return in the future.
Wonderful beachfront view
We stayed for almost 2 weeks in Jan/Feb. The condo was as described. The kitchen was fully equipped and the condo offers a small bedroom, small bath, open kitchen/dining/living area. There was a fantastic view of the gulf through sliding glass doors which opened onto a large deck. It was easy to access the beach and you could walk a long ways in either direction. The sofa is firm which was good for my back but deep so you may need a pillow behind your back for comfort or longer legs than either of us have. I thought the bed was too soft for my back comfort, but my partner thought it was very comfortable. We agreed the bathroom and bed linens while serviceable were old and a bit worn and the cushioning in the upholstered chairs was well worn. We had a couple of things we needed to contact the owner about and that process was easy and she was excellent about problem solving in a very timely manner. We thought the condo made excellent use of it's small space, including having a much appreciated washer and dryer. This unit met our needs for a beach vacation well. This area of Florida is very built up and full of traffic, so it takes awhile to get around due to the geography and population density. Just the same there are many wonderful nature preserves and areas to bike and kayak nearby. And the beach right outside your front door can't be beat.
Thank you for your nice comments about our beach rental. Before your review was submitted and After your visit I went through the bathroom towels and replaced several of them. We try to check things often and want things to be nice. Jo Ann
Perfect getaway with a awesom view
Just spent our first Christmas away from home and we couldn't have picked a better place to spend it. When we walked in our condo (little beach house) we didn't feel as if we needed to clean everything before we could enjoy ourselves (thank you). We loved opening the sliding door and sitting on the back deck watching the amazing sunsets or just sitting in the sun and the beach is just footsteps away. Everything we needed was in the kitchen, bathroom and loved the washer and dryer. We will be back!
Thank you Tony and Leslie for your review. We really enjoyed meeting you. You are always welcome to return any time. We try to accommodate our guest in whatever will make their vacation wonderful. Jo Ann
Quiet and picturesque!
This is a small, serviceable apt with a fantastic beachfront location. There was even a small surf break when I was there and it was fun to watch the surfers from the big private deck. The shady garden was a big plus for me because I dont like to bake in the sun so I could sit in the shade and still feel "on the beach". The view is unbeatable and the beach and surrounding neighborhood are so quiet (with the exception of Caddy's and Ka Tiki bar, which both appear to be party central --but are far enough away to not be a bother but close enough that you could walk there if you want a party). Traffic is very light on this small residential pennisula but you are close to amenities--there is a Publix grocery store very close, and a Taco Bus and a new brewery are both within walking distance. The owner Jo Ann was very responsive and easy to deal with.
I'm giving it only 3 stars because it is quite small (I would not want to have more than 2 people staying there unless they are very small children) and the furnishings are very basic and dated/worn. For the price, it could use updating and maintenance. There is also an access gate for the hotel across the street literally right under your bedroom window so you cant sleep with the windows open or the noise is a bother, which is a shame.
But overall I enjoyed my relaxing stay and would stay here again.
Thank you Emily for your input. Our 1 bedroom rental is perfect for 2 people and that is what we prefer. That is how we advertise our rental. We have another unit on the ground floor that is more suitable for a small family. We do not rent to people who want to party. Our rentals at this location are furnished very nicely with a beach theme. Everything is very clean. The couch in this unit is a very expensive leather queen sleeper if someone happens to need a extra bed. Our living room furniture is beach 50's style, which most people appreciate. We are on the beach, so people do come in and out with wet bathing suits and sand. We do everything possible to accommodate our guest so that they have a great vacation. There is a condo across the street and they have a private gated access which goes between our property and the next door house. We also have our own private gate which eliminates passersby's from entering our property. It is very hard to please everyone, but we try. This is the first 3 star we have ever received in 10 years. Our ratings speak for itself.
Walk out the door onto your private deck which overlooks beautiful sunset beach. Located in a very private and tranquil part of the island, you will enjoy a private vacation. Hear the waves from your deck or open the windows at night and let the waves put you to sleep. Hear and see the parrots that visit our trees. We have shade, sun, and serenity to offer. You do not have to cross roads to go to our beach. Walk only 50 feet from the deck directly to the sand and beautiful beach. Glorious sunsets are waiting for you. Natural nature is at your doorstep.
We also have a ground floor unit. VRBO # 1099077. Same location on the beach.
That rental has no steps and easy mobility. Also is great for a family with children.
Nicely decorated with beautiful bright beachy colors and is very clean comfortable and modern. Bring your clothes and everything else is there for you to use. Hardwood/ceramic floors, with ceiling fans in every room. Non smoking and adults are preferred. You are more than welcome to smoke out on the deck and patio area.
There are other 1 bedroom units in the building available. Please feel free to call me for any question.
