We spent four wonderful weeks here and were very pleased with our experience. The condo is clean and well equipped. The owner was very helpful and responsive.
This was our first condo rental in Florida and will definitely not be our last.
We had a beautiful oceanfront view greet us each morning ... I sat on the balcony with my coffee while my wife took a long walk searching for the perfect seashell. She usually returned with a bag full of shells along with fresh croissants from the bakery about a mile north of us.
On rainy days we went into St. Petersburg and toured the art museums. We especially enjoyed the glass work of Dale Chihuly.
We found plenty of restaurants nearby.
It was a perfect seaside escape from the cold and snow!
Although the weather was not very cooperative, the condo was a nice place to stay. Yes, it may need some updates, but it was very clean and we loved the ocean front view. Working with the owner and the management was a nice experience. Would definitely like to go back one day, hopefully with better weather so that we could enjoy the pool and beach.
We stayed here for 2 1/2 weeks , great location, spacious well equipped west facing condo, overlooking the Gulf and a well tended pool. This condo had enough glasses (especially wine!), corkscrews, pots and pans and at least one knife that works, which is the most aggravating problem we always run into renting most condos, even though we don't often cook on vacation. Booking was straightforward and pleasant, the condo was very very clean when we arrived, the owner has a very good serious on site manager and it shows. This is a relatively small complex, with large units, well located close to restaurants (especially Guppy's) and easy transportation. The private elevator is a novelty!

Rental and communication through our entire process was excellent. Darrell is a caring owner who wants to share his slice of beach heaven with everyone. The condo is immaculate and well cared for with amenities commensurate with this rental class. The large screen TV, free Wi-Fi and comfortable space make this condo a winner. The condo is tastefully decorated and well provisioned. Master bath has a jacuzzi tub and the second bath a large shower.The elevator that brings you up to the top floor balcony is a plus.
Location is excellent and within walking distance of great places to eat. This beach area is not over developed with huge hi-rises and most buildings are no taller than four floors.
You are on the top floor and have spectaclular beach views and relaxing on the balcony watching the sunset is not to be missed.
Why I can't give this a complete excellent rating. The condo is getting a bit worn. The featured leather sectional is pretty worn. Bathrooms with cracked tiles and slow drains. Pool area that needs new furniture. Beach supplies were worn and old. Beach umbrella was broken. No Beach Towels. Barbecue Grill was not functional. We had issues with kitchen appliances that Ben and Joyce the condo area contacts were very helpful and supportive in trying to remedy. However, you don't want to spend vacation time on issues.
This is a condo with great location, very clean and well equipped with an honest and caring owner. A 4.5 but not quite a 5.
