2BR, 2bath, beautifully renovated condo overlooking the peaceful Boca Ciega Bay
Isla del Sol is a beautiful island community on a tropical barrier island at the southernmost tip of St. Petersburg, one mile from St. Petersburg Beach. This fourth floor renovated condo is highlighted by stunning views of Boca Ciega Bay. There are brilliant views of the intracoastal waterway with all the boating and wildlife known to the area.
The open floor plan has a magnificent full water view with an updated kitchen overlooking a fabulous living area. The fully equipped kitchen features granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and opens to a dining area and living room leading to a balcony where you can sit and enjoy the calm waters of the bay and gorgeous sunsets.
The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and is updated with a custom designed walk-in closet with plenty of storage and a beautiful, marble en-suite bathroom with two sinks. The master bedroom has access to the same balcony as the living area with the same beautiful views.
The guest room also has a king-sized bed and upgraded full second bath.
For your added convenience, there are televisions in both bedrooms as well as the living area, a full-sized washer and dryer, an assigned parking space, and an elevator.
This island community has beautiful tropical landscaping, heated pool, spa, clubhouse, fitness center, and water views everywhere you look. It is home to the Isla del Sol Yacht and Country Club which offers membership packages to meet the unique needs of seasonal guests. The island is just minutes from the warm turquoise waters of St. Pete Beach, the most southern link in a chain of barrier islands that make up the Tampa Bay Suncoast. The condo is just minutes from the attractions of Fort de Soto Park, named one of the Nation's Best Beaches. The park includes ferry service to Egmont Key, campgrounds, fishing piers, beaches, and wildlife.
Thanks to sunny reviews from millions of TripAdvisor vacationers around the globe, St Pete Beach continues to land at the top of the list of the world's best beaches. The beach provides sugar-white sands, blue waters, and opportunities for water adventure or relaxation. You will discover historic neighborhoods, shopping, fantastic restaurants, and magnificent sunsets. The world-class Loews Don Cesar Hotel can be seen from the balcony of the condo. Built in 1928, its distinctive color and architecture makes it one of the most recognizable landmarks on the Gulf Coast of Florida. St. Pete Beach is urban yet quaint, has award winning beaches, specialty shops, dining, and theater.

About John "Sol" Solomita
Joy and I purchased this beautiful condo as a ten-year anniversary gift to each other. We love vacationing in different places and this was "the one" as soon as we walked in. And both of us love entertaining so being a VRBO and AirBnB host was a natural step to add.

Why John "Sol" Solomita chose Saint Petersburg
THE VIEW! We have been looking at condos from St. Pete to Sarasota for two years. This one seemed to offer everything we were looking for - proximity to both the beach as well as a thriving metropolitan area. The condo has been beautifully remodeled so all we needed to add was Joy's southern personal touch. AND THE VIEW!

Great Isla del Sol Rental
This condo is a real gem. I was the 4th person to rent. It is tastefully furnished, clean and well equipped. Two good size bedrooms and two full baths. Both baths have glass enclosed walk-in showers. Kitchen has very nice appliances, a spacious island and is well-lit. New washer/dryer. Master BR has large walk in closet with LOTS of room. Great 4th floor view of Intra-Coastal Waterway and Pass-A-Grille. Located in restricted, quiet development with meticulously maintained property and grounds. Elevator is steps away from front door. Access to pool, Jacuzzi and exercise room. Minutes from St. Pete Beach, Ft. Desoto Park and Pass-A-Grille beaches. Owner was a pleasure to work with, lives nearby and promptly answers questions. Would rent again in a heartbeat!
Dan - thanks for the very nice comments. Joy and I try to make all of our guests' visits special. You and Ann were excellent guests and left the condo in great condition. Special thanks for starting the laundry, knowing that we had a same-day turnover. We will be happy to host you again.
Beautiful place for winter getaway!
My father, brother, and I enjoyed a 10 day visit at this wonderful condo. It is a quality place with nice touches to feel at home - esp the well stocked kitchen! Best by far is the view from the balcony. The sunsets were wonderful! We also saw dolphins every day and some darn big boats!
The unit's entry is located close to the elevator which was nice for my brother with poor mobility. There is a trolly in the lobby to bring up your luggage as well as a grocery cart to transport your groceries. Bahia Del Sol is a beautifully landscaped area with lots of walkers enjoying the FL warmth.
Sol, the owner, was great to work with and responsive when I had initial questions to get settled. He quickly arranged for a plumber to come to repair a sink problem.
The condo's location is a quick drive to Fort DeSoto, Passe-A-Grille, Boyd Hill Park, and other fun areas. (Be sure to have lots of dollar bills for the various tolls.) Several Publix are close by for food. Lots of good dining, too, but we didn't really go out to eat much. We enjoyed cooking in! Highly recommend!
Sheila - thanks so much for the great review! Joy and I loved having you as guests as your communications were effective and you left the condo in great condition for an easy transition for our next guests. Please return next year.
Great view and really nice place
A really nice condo, great view, nice location.
Thanks, Doreen and Joe. You were great guests and left the condo very clean.
Beautiful view + great place + nice and helpful host = GREAT and RELAXING vacation!
We enjoyed our stay! The place has everything and anything you might need while on vacation. I booked this place because my mom was visiting for out of country and I wanted her to have the view on the water, the convenience of the pool and the beach and to feel she is on vacation, rather than just visiting me. I work long hours and I knew that will occupied her time for majority of the day.
We both loved the place and I would go back without any hesitations. The owners were extremely nice, communication was always on point and in a timely matter. They had a nice present when we entered the condo and we both enjoyed it. Thank you!
If I were you, I woudln’t hesitate to book this place.
Check in procedures extremely easy, as well as, check out.
P.S. Sol and Joy, thank you for creating such great memories for both of us.
Have a wonderful holiday season!
Sevda - thanks for the excellent review. We tried to make your stay, and especially your Mom's, as relaxing as possible. You were great guests and we would welcome you back. Your review is especially important to us as you were our very first VRBO guests. Other guests have made similar comments but they don't get posted here.
