This 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.

About Chris Lavigne
My name is Chris Lavigne. I fell in love with Upham Beach on St. Pete Beach when I was a kid. I love the beach, water, nightlife, and great restaurants - so this condo location is perfect for me...and hopefully for you as well. I travel often, so I rent it out while I am away. Let me know when you are ready book my condo for some fun in the sun!
Chris Lavigne purchased this Condo in 2013
Why Chris Lavigne chose Saint Petersburg
Gulf Winds has the best location in St. Pete Beach. There are several restaurants, beach bars, convenience stores, beach retail stores and ice cream parlors all within 1-10 minute walk. The condo is located at Upham Beach which provides showers, beach rentals, breakfast/lunch grill and beach volley ball. Gulf Winds is by far the best value and location in St. Pete Beach.

LOVED how close it is to the beach!! Loved that there is a nice little restaurant on the beach also. The home was neat, and clean. It provided what I needed. I wasn't there much.LOL
The only challenge was locating the office to get the key after hours. Got it handled though and the staff was SUPER helpful when I called or talked to them in the office. Would totally rent again!
Super close to one of the best beaches in the USA!
Chris made things easy along with the nice folks at the location. Check out the Secret Garden at the beach, it's lovely. Take a right at the water and go to the point!
As always, we really enjoyed staying at this property. It's so convenient to have beach supplies on hand and a beach so close! If I had one wish, it would be for another tv in the bedroom as it seems my husband can't sleep without it. ;)
Had a great stay. Enjoyed room and beach area. Highly recommend
Everything we needed was right there... clean. Comfortable room and very nice people there to help. Would stay again... Rhonda - Princeton Ky
Worth the money!
The condo isn't outdated, however it is overall well taken care of. The bed was very comfortable. The pull out was a little wiggly, if we had the right tools though could have easily been fixed in sure by tightening the legs on it. Kitchen was well equipped with dishes, great to have the beach chairs and beach umbrella. If you're looking for a fancy resort this is not your place. However if you are looking for affordable, clean, and convenient this is the spot for you. Just steps from the beach. Teresa in the management office was extremely nice. Provided us with coupons for activities and worked with us through our late arrival. Chris was very responsive. Overall we had everything we needed in the condo. Pool was well taken care of. Will definitely rent in the future.
Property was great location
Loved the location of the resort . Would recommend to stay at this property
Thanks, Susan. You were a great guest. I hope you return soon.
This unit is located in beautiful St. Pete Beach, on Upham Beach. One half of a block from the beach. An easy walk to numerous shops, restaurants, bars, etc.
Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
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.
