About Owner / Property Manager

I've used VRBO frequently, so when I bought this property, I knew what guests were looking for. I spent months renovating the insides to open it up for entertaining with 40' flat screen TVs, FULL kitchens and granite countertops. Brand new furnishings in all 6 units with high quality king beds, couches so you don't wake up with a sore back or slide to the center of the couch. Wifi and flat screens in each bdrm allow you to escape and relax.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this condo in 2013

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed staying at this wonderful property for many reasons. First of all, the location is very convenient - it is close to a lot of stores and restaurants, and of course within a very short walk to the BEACH! The price is great for the size and the condition the condo is in: it was like being at home away from home! Very nice updated kitchen with all the necessary things you need to cook, nice bathroom, very comfortable bed, lots of closet space. I am very happy with everything and would like to say thank you to the owner /property manager for making sure the place was very clean and had everything one needs to have a perfect vacation!

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

We are used to staying in a house With a pool with our family, but this place was perfect for just the two of us. We just crossed the street to get to the beach, wasn’t a crowded area of the beach. Just 8 houses down from Don Cesar’s (opposite side of the road). Just bring extra towels and wash cloths as well as beach towels. Also, the knifes aren’t sharp enough to cut watermealon/canelope (one was broken); otherwise it was perfect for just the two of us and we’d stay here again.

We rented bikes from the scooter shop and rode to pass-a-grill (our favorite location) and throughout the St. Pete beach area.

Before our stay, we read many comments about the busy road, but we had no problem crossing and found the location to be perfect.

The exterior and interior of the condo is clean, the floor is a little stained and the sofa was a little worn, but it was still a nice place.

The washer and dryer are out in a storage building, but it’s free to use and it was nice to be able to keep the towels and wash cloths clean as well as our clothing.

Overall, this place deserves a 4 star.

Great location and nice accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a long weekend stay in one of the one bedroom room units and it was great -- especially for the price.

If you're going for a beach vacation, the location is perfect. It is right across the street from the beach. You do have to cross a slightly busy road, but there are tons of crosswalks and it was never a problem for us. The condo is right down the road from the Don Cesar hotel, which is gorgeous, and and right around the corner from a neighborhood overlooking a bay where you can catch a very lovely sunrise in the morning. We hit the beach every day and it was gorgeous and not crowded at all.

The beach is beautiful and there's no shortage of restaurants and beach bars within walking distance. We only took an uber when we went to downtown St. Pete and John's Pass. There's also a Walgreens and a Publix close by and a little snack shack right across the street that has decent, cheap breakfast.

As for the unit itself -- we found it to be perfect for our needs. It is very clean, the shower has great water pressure and the hot water remained through all three showers every morning. The kitchen has everything you would need -- coffee maker, toaster, dishes, etc. The king bed was very comfortable. The sofa bed isn't super comfortable, but that's pretty standard in sofa beds. It was comfortable enough for a few nights. Linens and towels were clean and in good condition. The TV has all the major channels and the furniture is comfortable if you want to spend a night in relaxing with a bottle of wine.

For this price, you really can't go wrong. Dick was perfectly friendly and responded very quickly to the few questions we had. Highly recommend this condo and I would be happy to stay here again should I never decide to revisit St. Pete.

Perfect location, clean, proper amenities, comfortable, & exactly as described!

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described. Written notes throughout the condo were helpful. It was clean & felt like home for the week we stayed. Everything about our stay went smooth. There were more amenities provided than I would've expected, which was great! Eating, shopping (for necessities like at Walgreens), & beaches were within walking distance. We had a car the second half of our trip...driving to Clearwater & Siesta Key were very reasonable trips from this location. Laundry facilities were in working order at the time of our stay, which made our stay even more comfortable than otherwise. We traveled with 2 children, and the beach toys available on the property enhanced the kids' beach fun. We would stay here again!

BANG FOR YOUR BUCK! Why pay the rate for being on the beach when you can walk across the street to the beach or one block to the Intercoastal Waterway behind the property. BRAND NEW renovations, this cozy 6 unit bldg has new furniture, king beds, flat screens in dens and bedrooms. Walking distance to anything you could need !
