“Bright, Cheerful, Perfect Location, and...Quiet”
Reviewed 6 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

We felt at home as soon as we opened the door to the cheerful interior and a view of one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. This place is well-maintained and has every amenity, but the extras put it over the top: a FULLY equipped kitchen, bright lighting in kitchen and bathrooms, plenty of electrical outlets, fluffy towels, a comfy king bed, TV in both living room and bedroom, reliable Wi Fi. The window treatments admit bright daylight when you want it and (take note late sleepers!) block it when you don’t.

The management provides a “starter kit” with things like soaps, paper towels, and toilet paper, so you don’t have to run out immediately to the supermarket -- which BTW is just across the street, along with a mom-and-pop deli, a fun Japanese restaurant, and a French bakery serving great coffee, croissants, tasty salads.

St Pete beach is a bit more refined than nearby Clearwater, less honky-tonk, but if you want some more frenzied shopping and you love crowds, Clearwater is just a couple of minutes’ ride north. And 505 is just ¾ miles from the Bayway, which is the scenic route to downtown St. Petersburg.

We don’t know why former tenants complained of noise. We were there for 9 days and heard not a peep of mechanical noise. There is some very minor traffic noise – every beachfront property for miles along the coast is positioned on Gulf Blvd, but this is a resort community, not a commuter route, and the road is quiet from about 9pm to 9am.

“Sweet little condo steps from the beach”

Booked this property for a 4 day visit to St. Pete. Condo was really cute and comfortable, everything in good repair. Gorgeous view of the beach. The outdoor pool was terrific, with plenty of chairs and even a huge bin full of pool toys/floats. Two gas grills outside were perfect for our cooking out needs.

The only downside was noise - lots of traffic and a noisy air conditioner unit ... bothered my husband but I think I slept just fine! Most important to me - we were arriving just a few days after Hurricane Irma and the communication from staff was BEYOND EXCELLENT.

We stayed there last year and it was an excellent place to stay. Very clean and it right on the beach.The staff were very friendly and helpful. As we are from Newfoundland we found out the owner was a Newfoundlander as well. Tried to book the same place for this year but was all booked up for the weeks we wanted

“Don't rent Unit #505 if you want to sleep”
Reviewed 21 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The equipment in the unit was fine but the A/C machinery on the roof overhead was old or broken and thrummed intermittently disturbing our sleep all night and all week. The manager said "We've had this problem before", and he said he would have someone look at it. Nothing changed as far as we could tell - a real bummer.

Unless you are deaf or hard-of-hearing I suggest you find somewhere else.
