About the Property

1 Bedrooom, 1 Bathroom, Balcony, Fully Furnished Ocean/Beach View Condo

Gulf Winds Resort - Best Location on St. Pete Beach! Fully furnished, one bedroom, one bath beach condo. Very well-reviewed - available for four night up to multi-month getaways. This comfy, ocean/beach view condo is on St. Pete Beach, just a few steps (1/2 a block) from a beautiful white-sandy beach with clear, turquoise water. It is professionally managed, so someone is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist.

You will feel at home in my unit with its full kitchen and layout. It is very close to many attractions including water sports, fishing, theme parks, casino cruises, and museums. The heated swimming pool stays warm year round and has a view of the ocean. This location offers privacy and amenities not found anywhere else.

The condo has wood floors in the living room, carpet in the bedroom, and tile floors in the bathroom. There is a queen size bed in the bedroom and double futon in the living room. The condo contains amenities including a HD TV with cable, DVD player, high speed wireless internet, small stereo with aux input (for your iPod, iPhone, Android, etc.), phone (free US calls), central air conditioning, complete kitchen, and linens/towels. Smoking is not permitted inside the unit, but guests may smoke on the balcony with the sliding door closed. Free parking for one vehicle is included.

Location and convenience are key when you choose your vacation destination. The condo is only 30 minutes from Tampa International Airport (TPA) and 20 minutes from St. Pete/Clearwater Airport (PIE). Orlando is less than 90 minutes away where you will find all the Disney World entertainment (Disney, Epcot Center), MGM Studios, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Sea World and many more attractions. Busch Gardens Tampa Bay is only 30 minutes away - where the rugged beauty of the Serengeti meets out-of-this-world rides and exotic animals.

The condo is 10 minutes from downtown St. Petersburg and 25 minutes from downtown Tampa. Do you enjoy watching sports? We have professional baseball, football, soccer, and hockey within 25 minutes and spring training baseball only 10 minutes away.

You will find some of the best fishing and golf courses in Florida and restaurants in the area are some of the finest you will find anywhere. You can walk just a couple of blocks to many restaurants, shops, and all sorts of entertainment. Or you may just want to hang out and not go anywhere else, as you are at the #1 ranked beach in the country.

Start your day with a relaxing walk on the beach, and end your day watching the most beautiful sunsets you have ever seen.

I will try to match or beat any lower prices that you may find on comparable properties. Just provide me with a link to the lower price.

Although I prefer payment through the VBRO / HomeAway website, they now charge a service fee that can be hefty depending on the total cost of your stay. With that in mind, I will also accept bank cashier's checks and money orders in U.S. dollars if there is sufficient time to pay in advance of your stay. Your reservation is not final until payment is made and processed.

I provide a number of items that guests may use during their stay - beach umbrellas, toys, chairs, etc. Any items that are lost or broken should be replaced before you check-out. Failure to replace items will result in additional charges.

Cancellation Policy


In the event that a guest cancels a reservation, or the owners or management company have to cancel the arrangements due to non-payment of the balance due within the time allowed, cancellation charges will be made as follows:

* More than 8 weeks before arrival date: $50.00 USD cancellation fee.

* Between 4 and 8 weeks before arrival date: 50% of rental amount

* Less than 4 weeks before arrival date: 100% of rental amount.

At my discretion, I can sometimes be flexible with the cancellation policy. Happy guests = return guests and good reviews.

Owner's cancellation policy:
