If I could give this property 6 stars I would!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Sunset Vista in various units for the last 10 years. This is by far the best one of them all. My husband said don't post a good review because the secret will be out!

The upgrades in the unit compared to all the other properties are incredible! The best was the super comfortable beds. Being on the top floor with no one next to you was a huge plus since it was super quiet and I am a light sleeper.

We never cooked a meal - because the restaurants around the property are so incredibly good - but if you did you would be impressed with the stainless steel kitchen. (Our new find this trip was Boardwalk Grill in John's Pass. We went twice it was so yummy. Grouper tacos, lobster roll, BLT!)

Check in super easy. Just punch in 4 digit code and you are in. We loved not having key cards to worry about or having to check in at front desk.

Lisa is wonderful to work with. She was super prompt answering all questions about the unit.

We will definitely be back - hopefully we will be able to book a spot next year - since my husband is worried about all the people that should be vacationing in this unit and we won't be able to get in.

Owner's Response: We just loved your review Sandy, it made us chuckle. As long as you come in the fall you should not have a difficult time booking as that is the slow season. We ourselves often wonder why the fall isn't busier because the weather is just as great as the Spring (but less crowded). Although your secret may be out, it just doesn't seem that most people are thinking about a beach vacation in the fall. We really look forward to welcoming you back.

Very nice place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Our third year there. Stayed for 1 month each time. Very clean, very friendly. Closest to the beach of any on the compexes that we've seen. Within walking distance of many restaurants and Publix supermarket. we are going back again. Would recommend highly. A little slice of heaven

We loved this condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great condo and we had a wonderful vacation here in Treasure Island! The condo itself is beautiful and well maintained...very clean. The beach is beautiful. It is a great place for kids as there is a kiddie pool as well as a big pool. We loved the fact of having the little Tiki Bar if we wanted to get a quick drink. Lisa, the owner was great to deal with, we had no issues. We would definitely return to this unit. We did not go to the Café on the resorts site until the last day and wish we had of earlier as the breakfast was so delicious! The balcony facing the ocean was absolutely beautiful....we were on it at least once a day and watched the breathtaking sunsets. I would highly recommend this place! Thanks again, Lisa!

Really nice condo unit.

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in unit 601W. We lived in Tampa for 45+ years, so we were very familiar with the area and all of the beaches and surrounding area. So I'll just focus on the unit and property. The reservation was easy and the owner communicated with us before the arrival with all the pertinent information. Very helpful. Great condo location. Right on the beach. Ammenities were good and interior of condo well done and clean. Even though it was early December, it was 80s most of the stay. The A/C worked very good and efficient. I really liked the push-button front door lock so we did not have to keep track of keys. The fans and lights are sort of gadgety but once you get used to them, they work fine. I would certainly consider this unit again if price is competitive. The only real negative is during this week the property was installing an acrylic coating on the 4th floor (like several of the other floors), therefore the stairwells were roped off; they blocked off about half of the parking spaces (including the 601W); and there was some considerable noise a day or two with pressure washing, etc. They asked us to park in 401W. Then someone was in that spot one day. We parked next to that spot. Then that was being used. One late night we pulled into another spot, but my wife went to check if that was OK. Nope, please move to another spot. A bit of a pain. But other than that, we think that property is a fairly high-end overall condo unit. Pools, pavers, hot tub, fitness center and cafe are all very good.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review of our condo. We are sorry that your vacation coincided with the building renovations inconveniencing your parking, but that (as you understand) is beyond our control. The good thing is that the resort and the homeowner association are very proactive about maintaining and upgrading the property so that all guests have the best experiences while there.

I have stayed at several Sunset Vistas condos. This was BY FAR THE BEST! You cannot beat the view! One day we watched dolphins playing for 3 hours straight from our balcony. The sunsets were GORGEOUS! If you're trying to decide to pay the extra money for the pent house, DO IT! So worth it!

Great condo, great location, wonderful view!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have been staying at 601W Sunset Vistas for 6 years and have enjoyed every trip. It has the best view at Sunset Vistas and the condo has everything we need. The beachfront access is a huge plus with two kids and the pool beautiful. The location is perfect as well as it is close to many different activities, restaurants, etc. I can't say enough nice things about it and am already looking forward to next year!
