About the property

This is a tremendous location for getaways with family and friends. Very private - no public beach access anywhere nearby so the gorgeous white sand beach is yours!

This gorgeous unit is spacious, fully renovated and redecorated with 2000 sqft of living space. Two bedroom, two ½ bath, gulf-view condo overlooking the incredibly beautiful Gulf of Mexico sleeps 6 comfortably. From its top floor location, you can actually view the breathtaking sunset from the kitchen, dining room, living room and balcony. Luxurious master bedroom has a king bed, TV, walk in closet, and a full bath including separate shower and garden tub. Master bedroom also has its own separate balcony overlooking Gulf Blvd and the intercoastal nearby. The second bedroom has a queen bed and walk in closet. Living room has a pull out queen sofa and a 60” flat screen TV with cable including the golf channel. There is a full size second bathroom and a half bath in the hallway. The kitchen is fully-equipped with all new stainless steel appliances, if your vacation plans involve cooking, and there is room for 6 people to dine comfortably at the table.

With only 7 condos in this quaint yet luxurious complex you get the feel of privacy and your only steps from the soft, white sands of the Gulf of Mexico making it the focal point for your next great vacation. Our penthouse -above two other first story units- offers not only the quietest location, but also a 360 degree view. This “complex” consists of 2 two-story buildings on the beach side of Gulf Blvd. It was built in 2000 and features a heated pool. The condo has a cute, island-style decor and was renovated in 2014 with new tile flooring, kitchen counters, paint, linens, etc . Vaulted ceiling gives this condo an incredibly spacious feel.

Enjoy the beach side shuffleboard court, the tiki bar and tiki hut tables waterside with new chaise lounges at the pool as well as on the beach. Poolside refrigerator to keep your beverages cold and close by! You can walk everywhere to get pizza, Mexican, oyster bars, upscale steak house, Italian, ice cream, drug store, and yes, the best breakfast on the beach! The location is only 20 minutes from the Clearwater/St. Petersburg Airport and 30 minutes from Tampa. Numerous attractions nearby include Busch Gardens (30 minutes), Disney World (90 minutes), golf, aquariums, art museums, planetarium, great restaurants, water sports, rentals, and loads of beach fun!!!

Unit is non-smoking and no pets allowed.

Moorhead, MN

Best Location in IRB! Condo has very nice finishings, but needs some TLC to get it back up to par..

  • 3 of 5

The location can't be beat! Walking distance to several restaurants and ice cream shops, great family time! We have stayed in this complex before, in the ocean front building and preferred that unit. Although through definition, this unit is in fact the penthouse in only that it is on top floor, but it doesn't meet all expectations. The balcony is huge, however, hasn't been cleaned in quite awhile, the ceiling is falling down and there are sitting puddles of dirt from leftover rain, only two old, dirty random chairs. The master is in need of a new bed, the bed has the "egg crate" indentations. The carpet is pretty worn and the toilet needs to be secured to the floor. The living room remote did not work and the covers for the couches were ill fitting and more annoying than fashionable. However, the size of the condo and the amount of seating is appropriate for families with children that stay in at night. The pool was our biggest issue. The pool was very mucky. We arrived on a Sunday night, I called Doreen early Monday and again Tuesday. Both times she said she would text the pool guy. I wouldn't even let my kids swim in it on Tuesday. Slowly, Wednesday and Thursday, were at BEST an OK pool, still unable to see the bottom... I called twice on Friday, again stating the pool was disgusting. Finally, our last day Saturday, the clarity was coming up to expectations. Yes, the problems with the pool were addressed, however, the issue wasn't corrected until our last day. Had the pool guy actually done something like fixed the skimmer, increased the movement of water or shocked the pool Monday or Tuesday, it would have been a better situation. Doreen's concession was to offer 15% off our NEXT stay, nope sorry. The other issues (balcony, bed, toilet, remote) weren't even brought up to Doreen, as the pool was the biggest issue to get remedied for my kids and that wasn't being handled properly. She became defensive with me and questioned me as to why no other renters were calling about the pool, Are you kidding me?? Sadly, I can't upload a picture I had taken on the Friday of the murky water. Beware, there is no sense of urgency regarding cleanliness or clarity of the pool, only to be answered with it is busy season... I did walk to 3 of the direct neighbors of this unit and the clarity and cleanliness of the pool was night and day to this one. Again, location was awesome, but if an issue arises, don't expect an urgency to remedy the situation.

Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two young sons spent the week in this unit for our Spring Break. It was perfect. It is beautifully decorated, incredibly spacious and an absolutely perfect location. The pool was the perfect size and we loved being able to just walk out onto the beach. Can't wait to stay here again!

Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable and convenient! Wonderful place to stay the winter for two northerners. Owner has succeeded in furnishing the condo with quality furnishes and supplies. Only negative for older people is three flights of stairs, however we did fine with the stairs. Would definitely use again if in the area.
