About the property

1 Bedroom 1 1/2 bath condo on the sands of the Gulf of Mexico

Completely Renovated in 2016 this one bedroom 1 1/2 bath condo is a Beach Lover's paradise. It has all the laid back feel that you can only get from being on the water without sacrificing a bit of the amenities you would want to enjoy. From the king size bed, to the walk in shower, to the full kitchen, nothing has been overlooked. You will leave here rejuvenated and wanting to book your next stay!!

About The Owner

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!)

The Owner purchased this condo in 2016

Why The Owner chose Belleair Beach

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!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Thank you,

Karen and Frank Murphy

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!!

Owner's Response: 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!!) Thanks again. Marty

Great Stay

Beautiful property in a quiet, residential area. Well-appointed accommodations and extremely helpful owners. The unobstructed view of Gulf sunsets was beautiful.

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

There was nothing missing in this 1 bdrm condo. We happen to be in Florida during a cold snap however we were still happy. We were literally 20 steps from the sand on the beach and had a nice view of the water and beach from the condo. Every night we watched the sunset from the couch which was just fine with us.

Everything was covered in the condo and I mean everything. Marty left a lovely treat in the refrigerator which included a bottle of Prossecco with cheese and grapes on a platter. What a lovely touch.

Marty was very responsive when we were booking and always quick to reply if we had questions. A listing of all the details of the condo was provided to help in packing which was perfect.

Thanks for a wonderful stay and we had a great anniversary week relaxing in this lovely condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much, Kimberly! I want all my guests to have a wonderful experience when they stay with us. Since it was both New Year's eve and your 10th anniversary, I hoped it would be extra special for you. It sounds as if I succeeded. Wishing you both a healthy and happy 2018 and I hope to have you visit again. Marty

Beautiful property with breathtaking views— right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

I simply cannot put into words how much we loved staying at the Starshine property! It’s located just on the beach with a spectacular view of the ocean from the back porch. It is everything we could’ve hoped for and more! Marty goes above and beyond to make sure every detail is perfect for your stay. The place was so clean and had everything you could possibly need during your stay including updated appliances. Thank you so much for letting us make Starshine our home for a week! We will be back!

Owner's Response: Megan and Tim--- Thank you so much for that wonderful review! I have been so fortunate that my guests love Starshine as much we do!!! It thrills me to hear that you had such a wonderful time! My sisters-in-law and I went on a girls only vacation once and after we saw where we were staying, we literally danced around--it was so perfect for us. I want all our guests to have that same happy feeling. Please do come back and visit again. Marty

A Beautiful and Roomy Condo

  • 5 of 5

Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico-- this lovely and quite roomy 1 BR condo was a delight and beautifully furnished. Bellaire Beach was quiet during our stay. We really enjoyed our vacation at the condo and would come back. All the appliances are upgraded and new except the washer and dryer, which are pretty old, but do the job, albeit slowly. My only recommendation is to upgrade those, too. If the pool was heated vacationers could swim in it all year!

The condo was fully equipped, and if you open the sliding doors that open onto the beach you can listen to the waves, which is beyond peaceful. My husband and I walked on the beach every morning. Just gorgeous. We had an absolutely great time, and really enjoyed the unit and location.

Owner's Response: Dear Annabelle and David--thank you so much for taking the time to write a review at this busy time of the year. I am so pleased that you enjoyed yourselves and would come back again! It would be lovely if the pool were heated (and if you knew how unusually chilly it has been this week you would really love it to be heated). Unfortunately in a condo situation, all the owners have to have the same thoughts on a subject and you know how that goes!! As for the washer and dryer, I know they are not as pretty as all the shiny new appliances throughout the condo, but they are hidden in a closet. And I have to tell you that they are workhorses!!!! Because of them, all of the white bed linens and towels manage to stay bright . Nonetheless, I do appreciate the feedback. Wishing you both a Happy New Year and hope to see you again. Marty
