Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Welcome to Whisper Wood – a peaceful oasis in St. Pete!

Start the day with a cup of coffee on our palm-shaded terrace, then take a relaxing swim at the quiet pool or enjoy a game of tennis on one of the free courts in the park across the street!

Our family has owned this unit for more than 20 years, and we have spent the past few years refurbishing it and bringing it fully up-to-date.

Why do we feel so much at home in Whisper Wood? Because it's a place people live year round – not just somewhere people spend their vacations! And that offers you some great benefits:

– A good night's sleep: our neighbors are more likely to be going to work in the morning than partying at night

– Plenty of space in the pool: few people in the complex have the time to take a swim during the day

– Safety and security: you don't have empty condos around you because there are people living in the complex whatever month you visit

Just round the corner there's a small park, which is perfect for running, as well as free tennis courts and a halfpipe for skateboarders. And if you want to see some baseball or American football, you can check out the games hosted by the neighborhood high school some evenings. So you get to feel even more like a local!

**** PLEASE NOTE: POOL CLOSED IN SEPTEMBER AND OCTOBER 2016, DUE TO RECONSTRUCTION. WE ARE OFFERING YOU A 20 PERCENT DISCOUNT DURING THIS PERIOD OF TIME *****

+++++++++++++++++++

St. Pete Beach, St. Petersburg, is on Florida's west coast bordering the Gulf of Mexico, some 30 minutes drive from Tampa. Beautiful, empty, white powder sand beaches and a great range of watersports make this the perfect choice for your vacation. Some protected parts of the beach have been restored with native vegetation and are home to pelicans and other rare seabirds. Sports fans are only a short drive away from baseball and American football stadiums, horse racing, and dog racing tracks.

You can reach several attractions within about two hours drive, including the Everglades, South Miami Beach, Walt Disney World (Disneyland), SeaWorld, Universal Studios, and the Kennedy Space Center. The Florida Keys are also a popular destination for people on vacation.

Other activities: canoeing, deep-sea fishing, snorkeling, baseball, tennis (free courts and a halfpipe for skateboarders in the park opposite the condo)

Very nice, private and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The property was very clean and well kept. It had everything you could possibly need to enjoy yourself. The only minus was the king bed was not comfortable. The property is close to downtown St. Petersburg and the beach, which made it easy to get around. Cathrin was very nice to work with and provided very good information about the property and area before we arrived. Check-in was very easy.

Great accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

This condo comfortably accommodated my small family (husband and toddler/20 months), as well as our mother-in-law who spent two nights to help babysit our little one (while we visited the area for a wedding). Even though the condo is a bit of a drive from the beach, it is in a residential area located close to a park and lots of amenities (grocery stores, take-out, etc), and it is a great size. There is also a decent pool for days we weren't up for the beach. It worked well for our family, as it saved us a great deal on food prep!

The house was stocked with pool and beach gear, like buckets, shovels, chairs, coolers, and beach umbrellas, so that was EXTREMELY helpful, as we traveled in by air. We were also in need of a high chair and pack 'n' play (portable crib) for our son, and the owners went above and beyond to supply those for us. The high chair was brand new!

I can't say enough about how helpful the owners/managers were. They supplied us with everything we needed and were very responsive when it came to questions (like making the internet work!).

The only potential "cons" (which still aren't enough to deduct a star) are: (1) the stairs, which were slick and wide open (no balusters under the hand rail), presenting a falling hazard for very small children, and (2) many of the instructions and leisurely reading materials were in German. That said, the owners and property manager were very responsive (I've mentioned this already, right?)! And most everything was pretty self-explanatory or provided in the welcome email.

I think this is an excellent choice for families with slightly older children (probably 5+) or a group of friends looking for a budget-friendly location not far from the beach AND basic amenities!

We felt very home and welcome

  • 5 of 5

Things at Whisperwood were great! The owner and the condo manager have both been wonderful, arranging especially for us a high chair and a pack ’n play. Life savers! And as we had a wedding the evening before, it was a huge help that we could leave only in the afternoon.

Owner's Response: Thanks for this review, Penny! In fact, we always try to respond to our guests needs. Buying a chair and bed for your little one was a matter of course. We are happy if our guests are :-)

Beautiful condo, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely townhouse, quiet, clean and much larger than it appears in the photos. It has a well-equipped kitchen and everything you need for a comfortable vacation, including a very pretty patio. The location is perfect - only a ten minute drive to downtown, the beach, or to Gulfport, with a Publix grocery store nearby and a park with a one-mile walking path just across the street. The owner is incredibly nice and responded quickly to any questions I had. There are also two bicycles that renters can use. I would definitely recommend this rental.
