We are the proud new owners of this little piece of paradise! When we first relocated to Florida over 25 years ago, this is what we thought Florida living would be like. We did not realize how rare and precious beachfront living would be. We settled in Safety Harbor, a sweet sleepy town located on the bay side of Pinellas County. It is a great place to live (but the beach is even better!)
Owner purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Owner chose Pinellas County
I fell in love with this condo the second I walked through the door. We have spent the last four months renovating and decorating and turning Starshine (yes I named it) into the jewel box it is now. We picked out doorknobs and cabinet knobs, baseboards and bedding and on and on. Everything that is inside now was picked with love and thought. We wanted this to be a beach condo but still filled with beautiful and comfortable furnishings. Now when I walk inside, I simply can't believe that we are lucky enough to own this property It truly is beyond my wildest dreams.
What makes this Condo unique
Our deepest wish is that your stay at our home is a wonderful magical visit. Mother Nature has supplied you with her very best---our Gulf beaches are consistently ranked as some of the top in the WORLD. If the sea calls to you, then this is the place to be. Last year a sea turtle chose the beach right in front of the pool to build her nest. This is THE place to kick back, relax and rejuvenate. However, as private as our beach is, you can hop in your car and in under 5 minutes find you way to fabulous restaurants both casual and fancy.

A Little piece of Heaven!
Your condo was absolutely gorgeous! The décor was beautiful and everything you could possibly need, and then some, was available. Waking up to the view of the Gulf in the morning was great and the sunsets were spectacular as well. It was a very restful 10 days of relaxation that we needed and fully enjoyed! Thank you Marty for all of your help and kindness!

Karen and Frank--
I am so glad you had a wonderful stay. It is my goal to make my guests' visits as perfect and relaxing as possible. I want you to leave here rested and refreshed and planning to return.
Thank you for letting me know that you enjoyed yourselves so much.
My daughter and I had a wonderful time at Starshine! The condo is better then the pictures, very beachy decor and so clean. They thought of everything! We can’t wait to return.
A beautifully decorated condo!
Marty always makes us feel like”old” friends visiting her home! Very comfortable and clean! Beach is only steps away with a pool to relax also!
Beautiful and exactly as advertised!
Wonderful relaxing week walking right out to pool and beach. Near many restaurants but not in the middle of high traffic area. Really would recommend and return!
Thank you so much for your kind words--I do hope you are able to return. Your description is PERFECT and what make Starshine so special. You feel as if you are away from everything when you look at and go out on the beach......yet drive ten minutes and everything is at your fingertips.
Enjoy your summer.
Sun, Fun, and Starshine! 5 Star Experience!
Get away from the hustle and bustle with this quiet get away! This was the perfect place to stay. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable! The decor is up to date and simply gorgeous! The condo has everything you’ll need to enjoy your stay. The beach is not as crowded at this end. The pool is clean and chairs are comfortable. This was absolutely the best view we’ve ever had in our 20+ years of coming to Florida for Spring break. If you want a quiet get away with a gorgeous view, then Starshine is the place to go! We will definitely be back!
WOW Judy--what can I say? The best view in 20 years--that is saying a lot!!!!
Rich used to say that the best view was from a high condo and I would respond that we were too absentminded for something like that as we would spend our lives going back and forth for the things we had forgotten.
He has long since agreed that this is the best view and I am pleased that you agree as well.
Hope to see you again next year.
ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!!!
We cannot say enough nice things about our condo stay. Marti was so awesome and the condo was exactly as pictured. Everything anyone could possibly need was at this condo. The bed was so very comfortable and the other furnishings were second to none. Being able to walk right out the patio doors to the beach was just great. Marti had every detail taken care of and made our whole stay just so easy from start to finish. We are already planning on trip back next year!!
Jane--thank you so much for that great review. I love your enthusiasm. 2018 has started off with a bang for the condo as you are the second person to leave and turn around and book your next stay!
It pleases me so much when my guests notice all the details I put into Starshine ! It makes all the hard work worth every second.
Have a great year and we will look forward to having you back at the beach in 2019 (you are the first person on that year's calendar!!)
