Property description

Enjoy miles of white sand and aquamarine waters. This attractive ground floor, 2 bedroom with 2 ensuite bathrooms, 1140 sq ft condominium has a private entrance, tile floors, 2 parking spaces, and is located less than 300 feet from the Gulf of Mexico (depending upon the tides). Master bedroom and living room provide direct access to the Gulf of Mexico and magnificent views of glorious sunsets, pristine beach, and sparkling pool.
Our beach escape is still very connected with high speed cable internet (Bright House Networks), quality unit & patio reaching WIFI, US & Canada free telephone services (in case your cell service is not perfect on the beach), etc. Because internet, WIFI, TV and phone are all provided by Bright House Networks, you only need to call one vendor for any support problems.

Notice to individuals with disabilities. There are at least ten steps up an artificial elevation required to get to (and from) our SunSet Sands from the Sonrisa parking lot and to the beach from the patio of our unit and no handicap assistance systems to aid with the steps. The unit also has normal size (not enlarged for easy disabilities access) bathroom access doors and other normal sized (NOT enlarged for easy disabilities access) features that might make it difficult for individuals with certain types of disabilities to access our SunSet Sands. We own only one unit (of 14) in Sonrisa Condominiums and have not been able to influence architectural changes required to increase the accessibility of our SunSet Sands. Please do NOT consider leasing our SunSet Sands if you have any disability that might prevent you or any of your family or guests from enjoying the full use of our SunSet Sands.

Notes:

$400 deposit is returned after inspection and cleaning unless VRBO damage insurance is purchased. If damage insurance is purchased, the $400 deposit is applied to the lease.

Car: Recommended

Our condominium is located in a small, 14 unit, complex (Sonrisa Condominiums) that is in Belleair Beach, a non-commercial residential beach community with no public beach access points. The nearest public access to your beach front is over a mile away outside of Belleair Beach. Yet the center of activity at Clearwater Beach's Pier 60 is approximately 4 miles away. This community is conveniently located 35 minutes from Tampa International airport, 45 minutes from Busch Gardens and 90 minutes from Disney World, Universal Studios, and Sea World. Discover a comfortable and tranquil setting for a relaxing vacation right on the beach. Enjoy boating, deep sea fishing, jet skiing and para-sailing just minutes away. Or walk the beach and enjoy the beautiful sunsets of the Gulf of Mexico.

Year Purchased: 2000

About: Steve Phillippy for the entire Phillippy family. My wife & I retired in May 2013 to make more time for travel, volunteer work, grandchildren, extended family, making a difference in and adding value to the world.

Why Belleair Shore, FL, USA:
The Beach! The white, soft sand, of the warmer Gulf of Mexico! At our SunSet Sands in Belleair Beach, you are very close to some of the largest homes on the beaches of Florida, which you can walk in front of on the beach directly from our SunSet Sands patio. Belleair Beach is a semi-private beach meaning that no one but residents or clients can park in Belleair Beach.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
You are on the ground floor and can walk directly to the sandy beach on the Gulf of Mexico. You can smell, hear and see the Gulf of Mexico from your bedroom, living room, kitchen and patio. You don't need shoes to get to the sand and the gulf from our SunSet Sands. The sunsets! You should always make time for the sunsets. Notice to individuals with disabilities. There are at least ten steps up an artificial elevation required to get to (and from) our SunSet Sands from the Sonrisa parking lot and to the beach from the back patio of our unit and no handicap assistance systems to aid with the steps. The unit also has normal size (not enlarged for easy disabilities access) bathroom access doors and other normal sized (NOT enlarged for easy disabilities access) features that might make it difficult for individuals with certain types of disabilities to access our SunSet Sands. We own only one unit (of 14) in Sonrisa Condominiums and have not been able to influence architectural changes required to increase the accessibility of our SunSet Sands. Please do NOT consider leasing our SunSet Sands if you have any disability that might prevent you or any of your family or guests from enjoying the full use of our SunSet Sands.
