About Burkhard

The owners are Michiganians who love to leave the cold north for fun in the sun in Florida and European adventures. They are committed to giving their guests the quality and comforts that they have come to expect on their many travels.

They speak English and German fluently and conversational French and Spanish! You are welcome to contact them in your native language if it is most comfortable for you!

Why Burkhard chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

Redington Beach is the most beautiful, relaxing area along Florida's Gulf Coast. The Royal Orleans is known for quality upkeep, management as well as a quieter place to stay. And the pool is always a warm 80 degrees!

What makes this condo unique

While staying at their properties, the owners enjoy the easy access to the beach, delicious seafood restaurants and the close distance to Tampa International Airport. They often skip the rental car and take the Supershuttle to the condo and use the Trolley service that runs from Clearwater to St. Pete Beach! Even John's Pass and Treasure Island are close by.

Adorable and Affordable Studio with Gulf Views and Easy Access to the Beach

  • 4 of 5

Burkhard was a great host, he was accompanying and helpful. The Studio itself was comfortable and clean, the kitchen was clean and stocked with utensils, pots and pans along with cups, bowls and plates. However, the mini fridge gave us a little trouble, it took the fridge awhile to make our food cold and the freezer kept melting then refreezing, we mentioned it to Burkhard and he explained to us the steps to make the fridge work and after that there was no problems. The bathroom was small but clean and tidy, there were plenty of clean towels. The bed was clean and comfortable as well. Burkhard provided beach chairs, towels and an umbrella for our stay. The studio is walking distance to multiple restaurants, the parking was easy for the apartment and it was an easy walk to the beach access. From the Studio we could even see a little bit of the ocean which was a nice surprise! Overall the experience was great and we will be back!

Everything was perfect. Burkhard was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Burkhard was great to work with. He responded promptly to emails and was very accommodating. The studio had everything we needed for a great week at the beach- coolers, cozies, generous amount of towels and blankets, beach chairs & umbrella, dish ware, toaster, small range, coffee maker, etc. The studio was clean and cozy. The bed was surprisingly more comfortable than I had anticipated. Royal Orleans was clean and pretty well maintained. It was a very short walk from the beach and we could see the ocean from our balcony. I would definitely recommend staying here and wish I was vacationing there right now.

Great location with all the necessities

  • 4 of 5

We booked this last minute. Turned out it was a great spot conveniently located across from the beach. Burkhard the owner is very quick to respond and has furnished the condo with all the necessities including beach chairs, umbrella, lots of linens and kitchenware.

We will definitely go back next year!

Perfect for a Quick Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Room was exactly as described and working with Burkhard on the reservation was great, he responds quickly and is a very nice guy. The room was clean and well maintained. Works perfect for a couple for a quick vacation, not huge but plenty of space for your luggage and things.

The pool and property of the resort are also just as nice. Lots of chairs and tables, you could easily spend a few days here without even going to the beach if you wanted to, but the beach access is literally 100 steps down the street so it's really no issue at all to walk back to the room from the beach to use the restroom or restock your cooler (which is supplied in the room... along with two very nice beach chairs and umbrella as well as some beach bags and other various things that make the beach trip nice).

We love this area of Florida and will definitely be returning in the future. Would not think twice about staying again at either of Burkhard's places at the Royal Orleans again, definitely recommend.

Great Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Burkhard was great and very accomodating! Everything we needed was available! The beach was beautiful and private as this is more of a residential area! Absolutely loved it and is in close proximity to St. Pete's Beach and Clearwater Beach (which is AMAZING). Beach chairs, umbrella, small cooler, beach towels and beach bags were great. The cleaning people come right at checkout so make sure you contact owner/cleaning lady 24 hours prior to checkout if more time is needed otherwise there will be an additional fee as they will have to come back(info is behind the door on the wall. This will make things easier for all! THANK YOU BURKHARD FOR EVERYTHING!

Pleasant Small Studio - Neat and Clean

  • 3 of 5

We loved our location on the second floor of the building, and just across the street from the beaches. The Studio was bright, clean and well equipped for a short stay. We encountered a problem with a very noisy box frame that kept us awake the first night. After speaking with the Owner, we removed the mattress from the box and placed the mattress on the floor for the duration of our stay, given that the Owner was unable to replace the box frame for us.

Owner's Response: There are times where it is not easy to meet every customers desires. We are trying hard to work with everyone, hoping to come up with a compromise that works for both sides. So I did in this case. I was informed that the box spring makes a squeaky noise. I tried to arrange a meeting with the customer and went to the condo to assess the situation with them. Unfortunately they were not able to meet with me, but permitted me to enter the unit to have a closer look. The customer already took the bed apart leaning it against the wall without asking prior permission! Talking to the customer they said that they were unable to sleep, so they removed the box spring, They appreciated me looking into the issue right away hoping to improve it, but I explained that I am not able to replace it the same day. The box spring is a wooden construction with a cardboard layer on top and yes if you push very specifically you are able to create a squeaking noise, even tough the part has no damage. I did try to contact the customer via phone to inform them about my findings, but the phone was always busy. Talking with the customer via phone when they called me was nice, however the multiple e-mails we interchanged were overshadowed by terms like immediately, unacceptable, expecting compensation etc. I offered the customer to leave if it is unacceptable for them but they said they have made already other plans. I did give them a discount to compensate for the inconvenience. Not to sound harsh, but I am recommending the customer to contact future owners with their particular needs such as very sensitive to noise, to avoid this kind of trouble.
