Our experience at Bermuda Bay was Great. The condo was ready on time, sufficiently stocked with linens, beach towels, kitchenware and a propane grill. Parking was just outside the front door and the Air Conditioning ran nice and cool so we were very comfortable. Both pools were very clean and our favorite was the beachside pool at sunset, especially following an afternoon tennis match.
The location was ideal. A ten minute drive to downtown shopping or island dining, plus nearby golf courses, marinas and museums kept our days full. I stayed for nearly three months and never ran out of new places to explore. We particularly enjoyed Skyway Jacks for breakfast and Billy's Stone Crab Restaurant for an evening out.
Kimberly was available to answer any questions and her guest information book had listings of local grocery stores, restaurants and attractions along with emergency contact information. I would not hesitate to contact Kimberly for my next vacation rental in the St Petersburg Area. I have recommended her to my family and friends with the hopes that they invite me to accompany them.
Considering the modest price, renters with realistic expectations should not be disappointed with this condo. Not at all luxurious, but quite functional, fully equipped, and quiet. To us, the best feature was the well equipped kitchen. We were also pleased to find that the bed in the master bedroom was larger than advertised. The condo complex is starting to show signs of age, however, and this unit would benefit from a complete remodel. Unfortunately, this ground-floor unit is situated behind an exterior stairwell, which limits natural light inside. Blessed with good weather, however, we spent our days outdoors, enjoying the sunshine! The central location of this condo complex made for easy day trips along the Gulf Coast.
I really enjoyed my time at Bermuda Bay. The two bedroom unit we stayed in had nice updated bathrooms and seemed very spacious. We were only about a one minute walk from a glorious pool, hot tub and small private beach on the bay. The sunsets were absolutely amazing and topped off by a scattering of sailboats anchored in the bay. This complex is slightly off the beaten path but still only a short drive to everything you would want to do. There are groceries only a few blocks away and with such a stocked kitchen we ate in quite a bit.
We had a terrific time and will return. Thanks!
Definitely NOT on the beach! This is on the bay, very small and nasty smelly water. For looks only!! St. Petes beach is 5 miles away. Not the best part of town either, and more like a gated apartment complex. Not clean by my standards. I told the owner twice and she acted like she didn't hear me. Nowhere else had vacancies with 2 bdrm/2 full beds..or I would have left immediately! Very disappointed. I had written a much larger review, but VRBO said it wasn't appropriate and didn't post it :/ Never again!!!
Let me start by saying we stayed only because we were under contract. The condo was not clean by my standards; mildew in the bath, wipe down needed in pantry, walls, doors, sill, etc. The carpet needed a professional cleaning. The dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer did not work properly. The only two pluses were the price and the very nice swimming pools.
The condo was clean, and the complex is secure and safe. There is NO view from the condo. You are basically looking at the parking lot as the view.
True the beach is a few steps (2 min stroll away) but I found the property 'okay'.
I've typically stayed in St Pete Beach where you have a water view as soon as you open the front door. Not the case at this property. You have to leave the condo to see the water.
As well, when I was issued instructions, it was a numerical code to open the lockbox, but when I arrived the first day, opened the lockbox it was empty. I had a little panic attack then coded into the actual keypad on the door. Better & up-to-date communication would be more pleasant to an unexpecting visitor.
Launch your boat or rent some jet skis nearby. Parasail, snorkel, gamble on a day cruise, shop, hike, bike, and feel the warm sand between your toes.
