Bermuda Bay’ is the hidden gem in the St. Petersburg area. With it’s private sand beach, lush landscaping and old Florida charm, it offers a quiet escape from the more touristy hotel strip and the bustling atmosphere of St. Petersburg.

Two heated pools and beachfront huts - you can relax the day away until the sun sets directly across the bay - sunsets that usually fill the sky with amazing colours!! You can bring your drink down for sunset or to the pool in this casual, relaxed lifestyle.

About David and Susan

We are retirees who have fallen in love with Bermuda Bay. We live in the condo when staying in Florida, and rent it out other times, to help cover the costs of condo ownership. Our condo is set up as a home (not a sterile rental environment), so you will find it well-equipped and cozy/comfortable.

David and Susan purchased this condo in 2013

Why David and Susan chose St. Petersburg

Bermuda Bay has become an extended family. We first came here as renters, for warm beachfront living, and now equally for the friendships we have developed. Here we kayak, swim, bike, and sail, and watch sunsets with our friends.

What makes this condo unique

From the 5 minute proximity to St. Pete's Beach, the quaintness of the village of Gulfport, nearby nature reserves like Fort De Soto (also one right next door with walking/biking trail), or the attractions of waterfront downtown St Petersburg (10 minutes away), it is all minutes from here.

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

During a 12 week internship I had to complete in Bradenton, I was lucky enough to stay at David and Susan's condo. It was so cozy and made me feel at home while being far from my family in Texas! I was able to bring my ESA dog with me with no difficulties which reduced my stress during my long "vacation". Everyone, from the neighbors to the security staff, was incredibly helpful and sweet. I loved being able to walk with my pooch to the water and watch the sunset, or take her for a drive to the nearby state park to kayak. The days I was able to get away from work I spent in downtown St Pete and loved it. The culture is incredible and the water is beautiful! I couldn't have been luckier with my find. David and Susan are such thoughtful people and I would stay at their ready-to-use, beachy condo any day if I could.

BEST TIME EVER

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Susan and David's Florida condo for a month. Can't say enough about the beautifully decorated, pristine clean condo, the wonderful Bermuda Bay grounds and the whole area of St. Petersburg.

There is always something new to discover in the area from art shows to golf to dining, and the sunsets are the best we have ever experienced. Everybody was so friendly!!!! Jen, Brad and Zoe from Quelph Ontario

Amazing Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Bermuda Bay is perfectly located - ten minutes to the waterfront in St. Petersburg (the small, artistic city), ten minutes to the main beach strip at St. Pete's Beach (miles of white sand) and ten minutes to Gulfport (for dining, art shows and fresh market). On site, there is a private beach and geo-thermal pools (always warm) as well as world-class sunsets. The condo is stylish and immaculately clean. We had the best time ever!!!

Lovely condo well located!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here! The condo is in a fantastic location. It is ten minutes from downtown St. Petes, the beaches and the funky enclave of Gulfport. It is a quiet community with friendly neighbors and great amenities. The condo itself is very clean, comfortable and has lovely character. David and Susan are extremely helpful and super to deal with. We would highly recommend renting here - we intend to come back soon!
