Grab your sandals and come on down to enjoy my beachfront ocean and Gulf of Mexico, condominium on the barrier island of St Pete Beach.
I am currently renting my condo at a reduced rate through July 5 because of work being done on the beach. You will still have access to the beach but I want you to be fully aware of what is going on. The work usually ends mid afternoon and the pool is accessible but you will have a choice of going to my other beachfront condo pool to use if you would like to during this project.
The past few years my condo has gone through major renovations starting in 2015 when I had new high quality windows and sliding doors installed throughout the condo that provide less noise and glare, and are more energy efficient.
Both bathrooms have been remodeled including walk in shower in master bathroom and the guest bedroom has now been turned into a private suite.
A complete renovation of the kitchen complete with custom cabinetry, new lighting system, new appliances, sink and countertops was just completed in January, 2018.
Travel Channel just named St Petersburg One of the World's Most Underrated Destinations describing it as follows.
"St. Petersburg, Florida
With 35 miles of white-sand beaches, St. Petersburg is the most blissed-out vacation spot you didn’t think to book. It’s sunny 361 days of the year here (yes, really), but there’s plenty else to do besides work on your tan. Check any of the 30 craft breweries in town, art-centric museums and emerging food scene, or opt for out-there activities like nighttime paddle boarding on glow-in-the-dark boards and swimming with horses."
The entire building has a new wireless WiFi/ telephone system that includes not only free local calls but free long distance calls within the United States and Canada providing guests with a more dependable wireless internet connection.
The master bedroom/bathroom suite that overlooks the beach has a king size bed, a 30" flat screen TV/DVD, walk-in closet and a breathtaking view of the beach as well as sliding doors onto the balcony overlooking the beach.
The guest suite is furnished with twin beds with excellent mattresses as well as a comfortable chair and bedside stand and a 40" flat screen TV. The twin beds can easily be pushed together to make a larger bed. The guest bedroom has a walk-in closet and recently remodeled full bathroom.
The living room and dining room will comfortably accommodate a family of four and has a spectacular view unique to this location in the building. There are sliding glass doors to access the private balcony from both the living room and master bedroom where you could be sipping a tropical drink overlooking the sparkling water. I have added a screen door so you can turn the air conditioner off and enjoy the sea breeze. The living room has a 42 flat screen television, new sectional sofa and two side chairs
Staying in unit #306, provides you with a fully equipped kitchen with plenty of counter space for preparation of some or all of your meals. There are two outdoor propane grills. #306 is also within walking distance of a variety of restaurants and shopping. A local trolley system as well as a free beach ride service provides you transportation to one of two major grocery store chains.

The CAPRICE IS referred to as the JEWEL OF ST PETE BEACH, and you will quickly learn why. The building isn't on the busy Gulf Blvd and therefore you hear the waves, not the traffic.
The building is on the northern curve of St. Pete beach providing a unique view of both the Gulf of Mexico and the entire length of the beautiful seven mile, sugar white sand of St. Pete Beach. The grounds are immaculately tended and beautifully landscaped as well as being enclosed for privacy.
There is some exercise equipment in the building recreation room that overlooks the pool and beach, has a television as well . Availability is when the onsite office is open. The pool is heated during cool weather and provides plenty of seating as well as umbrella tables for our guests and has convenient bathrooms. Arrangements can be made for a pool lift for handicapped guests with prior notice.
You will have a choice of one of three laundry rooms are in the building with two washers and dryers in each laundry room
There a shuffleboard on the property and you can check out the equipment at the on- site office. An added bonus to this property is the outer deck, away from the pool and closer to the beach. You will find the outdoor grills there and it is furnished with several tables as well as lounge chairs, and benches. It is my favorite place to take a glass of wine to watch the magnificent Gulf of Mexico sunsets. It is also a great area if you have small children because it is fenced with beach sand within the fenced area.
Next to the Caprice are volleyball nets set up on the beach so many times you can find a pickup game.
This is a service for door-to-door shuttles on the beach and has available airport shuttle service. The beach ride is FREE and drivers work for TIPS only. Available from 8am - 3am, every day. 727-776-7553

About Linda Sandvoss Spargur
This is my second beachfront condo on St. Pete Beach and truly has become my home away from home. I bought this condo is 2006 and envisioned it as a true get-away. I wanted to decorate the condo bringing the natural colors of the beach and water inside and remodel it to be convenient for everyone. That has taken me 12 years to accomplish, but with each visit more and more is accomplished. Once I discovered all that St Pete Beach and the cities of St Petersburg and Tampa had to offer, I knew this was somewhere I would spend more time. I bought this condo 2006 with a goal of renovating the entire condo. I find this condo a wonderful, place for me to come to relax and enjoy beach time. It is a place full of wonderful memories for myself and my family. I make it a point to stay in the condo every few months which gives me an opportunity to keep it updated and make sure it meets everyones needs for an ideal vacation destination as well as a vacation home for my family.
Linda Sandvoss Spargur purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Linda Sandvoss Spargur chose Saint Petersburg
I had admired this property on walks along the beach and saw that it offered a quieter setting away from Gulf Blvd and the traffic. I also like the privacy this building provides with the unusual feature of being fenced and having a large landscaped beach-side property. This condo is located west of Gulf Blvd., the major traffic route along the beach. I knew I wanted another beachfront condo and thought this would offer our guests another choice along St. Pete Beach. I also liked the option of having a sun deck separate from the swimming pool. The grounds are fenced offering more privacy and a safe environment for young children to play.
What makes this Condo unique
Over the past few years I have been remodeling my condo and was the first one in the building to provide my guests with two separate suites for more more privacy. The renovations included tile in both bedrooms and baths as well as a walk in shower in the master bathroom. Both bathrooms have been completely remodeled and safety bars were installed in both bathrooms. The kitchen was just remodeled and includes all new appliances, countertops, new lighting system as well as new sink and updated faucet. All of the cabinetry in both the bathrooms and kitchen was customed designed and built by a local cabinet maker. The manager I use, will immediately address any concerns you might have in regards to the condo and you will be able to contact me at any time if they cannot address your issue. I also reach out to my guests several weeks prior to their arrival with a packet of information to help you with the plans for your trip. A new wi-fi system has recently been installed in the building providing better service for our guests. It is difficult to describe the breathtaking view which is of both the Gulf of Mexico and extends all the way to the Southern point of Pass-a-Grille. The location of my balcony gets most of the morning sun which is wonderful on cooler days and then shade in the afternoon as the day gets warmer. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and give young children plenty of space to run and play in a secure, fenced area to run and play as well as an area of sand in which they can play. A shuffleboard court is in the courtyard. I like the fact that you can hear the waves instead of the traffic because it is in a much quieter part of the beach. There are only 33 condo units in the building, so the area never seems crowded like the larger resort hotels seem to be. My condo is also far enough from the elevator that you do not hear the elevator door opening and closi

Beautiful condo on a beautiful beach.
The condo is newly remodeled and is beautiful. Great view of the beach from the balcony. Walking distance to restaurants and shops makes it an ideal place to stay.
Beautifully renovated condo right on the beach! Loved this place!
We had a wonderful time vacationing at this condo. It was very clean, and every room was newly renovated. It was obvious that Linda takes great pride in her home. I have been coming to St Pete beach for years and have rented many condos but this one is my new favourite! Nice to see that the condo is everything and more than advertized. I would highly recommend this condo.
Thank you for the wonderful description of my condo. I am so happy that you found it exactly as my description and condo pictures depicted. I will look fowatd to you returning again.
Linda has a beautiful Condo and the area is fantastic.
Thank you for the nice comment about my condo. I am constantly looking for ways to improve my condo. As of the second week of September my kitchen appliances will be replaced with all Frigidaire Gallery Black Stainless appliances. It sounds like you may have taken advantage of the many activities and events available in the area of St Petersburg.
Overall nice condo.
Lovely condo, great views
The owner keeps a very nice condo and it is in a superb location. You are out of the bustling St Pete Beach busy area....just north of it, but you have a view of it from your balcony. Right in between St Pete Beach and Treasure Island and Madeira Beach. It's a nice location to watch the sunrise, the sunset, take morning walks, evening walks, swims in the middle of the day in the Gulf and in the pool. There are plenty of opportunities for nice breakfasts lunches and dinners, trips to downtown St.Pete for amazing art and cutting-edge restaurants and nightlife and museums, as well as outdoor parks both in St.Pete and St.Pete Beach and amusement parks in Tampa. You can hit the aquarium or do boating in Clearwater or the local beaches. Pass-a-grille is a serene little oasis to visit as well. The condo is comfortable and well cared for and I recommend it. The owner is kind and attentive which is a big plus.
Thank you for excellent review and wonderful oversight of the St Pete area. It has so much to offer besides the beach and I love the fact that you obviously explored some of my favorite attractions. Downtown St Petersburg has changed so much and this encourages my guests to take it in while they are there.
We enjoyed everything about the property and St Pete! The only thing we would add to our wish list would be to have a washer & dryer in the unit.
My condo is conveniently located within walking distance of Corey Avenue shops and some excellent outside restaurants such as Woody's. There is a convenience store within walking distance and a drugstore within one half mile as well as a major grocery store just beyond downtown Corey Ave .
I have often stayed in this condo without a car. The Suncoast Trolley system runs from St. Pete Beach north as far North as Clearwater. There is also a stop at St John's Village.
Downtown St Petersburg is an exciting area to visit with all kinds of unique shops along Central Avenue and some great dining along Beach Drive. The Sundial is a shopping complex you will not want to miss.
