About Julia

Sharda and I take great joy in this unique property a - piece of Florida's heritage!

On the bay where the beach meets the bay.

Courteous and friendly.

When you are here you are at home.


Think Bee Wop a Doo Dah.

Think 60's retro with unique themed condominiums in a small private Florida jungle retreat.

Take a break from the large, faceless, Mc Hotels.

At Whispers you will NOT lose your family between the lobby and the pool!

This is old time Florida.

Escape the swarms of strangers, crowded pools and relax in the ambiance of a more genteel environment.

Lush jungle gardens and huge trees to shade you, and cool breezes fan you by the pool.

Does this sound right for you?

Then you will love a Florida Heritage vacation, a blast from the past.

The Bee Wop a Doo Dah.

We will take you back to the days when the family piled into Dads Buick Roadmaster 'Woodie' and headed south for an adventure to the pristine beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.

Relive an era before the large 'Box Hotels' popped up on every corner.

Before McDonalds. An era when the corner soda shop was the place to hang out!

This blast from the past has just 8 units set in a lush tropical garden.

Every unit has a unique themed decor, such as Oriental, Africa, Hawaii, England etc.

This is real honest to goodness American apple pie, old time, down home Florida with all its eccentricities.

Whispers is a very small and extremely private bay front property.

Lose your cares.

Feel human again!

Your patronage helps us preserve our Vintage Florida Heritage.

The property is updated while still preserving the essential elements, colors and feel of our Florida heritage.

Julia purchased this condo in 2000

The location was fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Whispers for two weeks in May.

Whispers was the perfect home away from home, clean, neat condo with a Hawaiian theme and just a 5 minute walk to the Beach on Treasure Island.

The location was fantastic and for that alone it is worth considering. We found it to be good value as well. The property was very quiet and no loud teenagers or parties. Guests were very respectful of each other and very friendly and we had pot luck dinners water side with several of the guests who soon became our friends. Jeffrey and Sharda were very nice and helpful. Sharda met was very informative about things that may be of interest happening in the area which we really appreciated.

We would definitely return to Whispers next time we visit.

Owner's Response: I remember that you all got along with the other guests and your pot luck dinners at the pool side. You had a small portable fire pit and it was very magical. That was a nice touch. I am happy to have hosted such a merry crowd of nice people and I thank you all for being so caring and respectful to the condos. I understand that you have planned to all meet up next year at Whispers? I look forward to having you back - you are very welcome here any time, Best wishes Jeffrey and Sharda

The Condo is incredible, it's just like the photos on the web site. What can I say about Sharda! She is an excellent hostess! She provided us with all the information that we needed for restaurants and boat rentals, and she responded to my messages within seconds. We will definitely look forward to coming back sometime in the future.
