Make a holiday villa in Sunset Beach your home away from home

Sunset Beach holiday villas and apartments couldn't be more appropriately named, being sited directly adjacent to the pristine sands of this west-facing beach. The warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico are a great place to indulge any passion for fishing or watersports, and Sunset Beach accommodation is superbly situated near many local marinas. As HomeAway's rentals in Sunset Beach are located on the coast of the Tampa Bay metropolitan area, the facilities and infrastructure of a major city are right around the corner, yet seemingly a world away from the paradisiacal beach backdrop.

Things to do

-Beaches: Sunset Beach holiday rentals are, as the name suggests, right on the beach. The plentiful resources of Tampa Bay lie directly over the Intracoastal Waterway bridge, so accommodation is convenient for surfing, paddling, and other beach equipment rentals tourists could possibly desire.

-Nightlife: There are a few beachfront bars and restaurants dotted around Sunset Beach, typically of the laid-back variety, but if holidaymakers’ tastes run to partying or fine dining establishments, the entertainment districts of Tampa Bay are literally minutes away.

-Watersports: Marinas are legion in this part of the world, so there are plenty to choose from for waterborne needs. Visitors can hire their own boats, or charter them for fishing, take guided eco tours or enjoy romantic sunset trips. With so much in the way of waterways around, guests could feasibly use a boat as their primary mode of transport while on holiday here.

-Theme parks: A theme park experience to rival the excesses of Orlando's more famous parks, the Africa-themed Busch Gardens contains some of the world's most highly regarded rollercoasters. Sited adjacent to the 30 acre water park of Adventure Island in Tampa Bay, the 335 acres here promises a great day out for kids and adults alike!

-Sport: Depending on what time of year travellers are holidaying here, they'll have a number of iconic major league American sports to choose from; if such spectacles take their fancy, that is. Broadly speaking, the NFL (Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and NHL (Tampa Bay Lightning) play during the autumn and winter, with major league baseball played during the late spring and summer (Tampa Bay Rays).

Weather in Sunset Beach

Florida's warm, wet subtropical climate makes for a year-round holiday destination, though winters are more suited to those discouraged by excessive heat. The state certainly doesn't get as hot as other popular holiday destinations, however, thanks largely to the predominance of so much water in the state. Between the extensive coastline, Everglades and other wetland areas high temperatures in the summer rarely exceed 35°C. The low-20s are the highest you'll see in the winter, and it's also a lot drier, with the summer being the wet season, usually manifesting as short, sharp afternoon thunderstorms.

Travel to Sunset Beach

At 27 miles away, Tampa International Airport is the perfect fly/drive destination with its direct flights to the UK and Europe. You could feasibly work a holiday without a car if you don't intend to stray far from your accommodation, but a hire car is always the easiest and cheapest option in the US, thanks to extremely low petrol prices and superb road infrastructure. The city of Tampa proper does have an Amtrak and a Greyhound station, but these are national networks rather than local services. There is an extensive local bus system in the Tampa area.

Condo was bright, well stocked and just as pictured. Only had 1 maintenance issue which was corrected quickly. Collected many shells and loved walking the beach which was clean and beautiful. Loved the fact that we could walk a very short distance away to Caddys on the beach for cocktails and a bite to eat. Loved that we could BBQ right out in front and eat our meal right there while looking at the Gulf of Mexico. The pool was beautiful. Only draw back was that there was no restroom available beach level. Was the best vacation ever! We will definately be back!

The only negative I could even fathom would be that there was no beach blanket or towels, as advertised. I'm glad I brought 1 beach towel since I spent at least a little of every day on that wonderful beach!! This certainly is not a deal breaker for me, I would definitely love to stay here again. I was concerned the owners would think I took them since the information indicated that inventory was taken, which included the towels. Finally, the sunsets are magnificent every night, 10/22/16-10/28/16.
