Last October I started looking for a vacation rental in the St Pete Beach area. I emailed several property owners and there was nothing available. I did get a response from one owner who suggested giving this place a try. I found out it was a time share property that rented available units. We stayed here for 10 days. From Wed to Sat we were in a garden unit with no ocean view. The gulf units are only rented from Sat to Sat and we were able to get the view room for the remaining week. The location is so perfect...about a long block from the Don Cesar and the entrance to Pass a Grille and easy access to 275. They staff is amazing...very accommodating. The beach is the best. Our room was a one BR with a small living area and full kitchen. It's about 420 sq ft and just the perfect size for a week or two or more. I was surprised there's a dish washer. Laundry detergent is supplied as well as coffee and popcorn. There is a hair dryer, but, bring your own shampoo. Linens are replaced mid week because there is no housekeeping, but if you need anything, just go to the office and get replacements. Also, there is a nice pool which we did not use because it was chilly and very windy while we were there. Another plus is how well insulated the units are. We could not hear any notice from neighbors and so we slept well. I hignly recomment this condo-style hotel for all the above mentioned reasons. Our stay was wonderful! Oh, I forgot to mention how clean the rooms are.
