About Jo Ann Diaz

My husband and I love to travel, we are in construction and do all our own repairs and cleaning for our rentals. We have 6 grandchildren that live local and we love to share the beach with them. They all are very active swimmers, and into competitive sports.

Please check out our other rental on the ground floor.

VRBO listing # 1099077

Jo Ann Diaz purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Jo Ann Diaz chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

We chose our Sunset Beach condo because we love the beach and the location it is within 1 hour of our home. Sunset beach is known for its sunsets, the soft white sand and is great for long walks. We have dolphins that swim by daily. We have great sea shell hunting, and parrots that come to our shade trees. You could never be bored. There is wild life abundant. It is a beautiful place to relax and have fun.

What makes this apartment unique

Our beach front property is one of a kind. You could not be closer to the beach anywhere in our area. We are only steps from the privacy of our property to the open sand and beautiful Sunset Beach. We are unique on the beach because we have a beautiful flower garden. We get compliments frequently. The beach side of our property has it's own private walk way to the beach. It is very private, quiet and a great place to relax and read a book. Sitting on the deck drinking your morning coffee and eating breakfast is a great past time. The view of the Gulf is beautiful.

Perfect beachside place!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. So close to the beach that you can sit and drink coffee and watch the waves - we even saw dolphin and manatee! Peaceful beach without too many people. About .25 miles to Caddy's restaurant and bar and about 1 mile walk to grocery store and lots of other restaurants. We will be back! Absolutely heavenly!!

Amazing view...just breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation was one of my favorites! The location directly on the beach was fantastic and the garden outside our sliding door was just wonderful and so relaxing. We ate almost every meal outside in order to not miss a minute of the view! Having restaurants, stores and nightlife close, but not too close was perfect. The only thing I would change is that next time we will stay longer... Thank you Jo Ann!!

Our stay at Parrotdise was WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation stay for us on the sugar sand of Treasure Island! The garden area was so relaxing and enjoyable with just a few more steps to the beach. What a private oasis! The unit was well decorated and very clean. Was happy to have met the owner, Jo Ann. She was so helpful to us as this was our first stay on the Gulf side. When we return, we plan on renting this unit again if possible! Thx Jo Ann.

RIGHT OUT OUR BACK DOOR. DIRECT GULF VIEW/ACCESS
Car: recommended

Walk out the door onto your private deck which overlooks beautiful sunset beach. Located in a very private and tranquil part of the island, you will enjoy a private vacation. Hear the waves from your deck or open the windows at night and let the waves put you to sleep. Hear and see the parrots that visit our trees. We have shade, sun, and serenity to offer. You do not have to cross roads to go to our beach. Walk only 50 feet from the deck directly to the sand and beautiful beach. Glorious sunsets are waiting for you. Natural nature is at your doorstep.

We also have a ground floor unit. VRBO # 1099077. Same location on the beach.

That rental has no steps and easy mobility. Also is great for a family with children.

Nicely decorated with beautiful bright beachy colors and is very clean comfortable and modern. Bring your clothes and everything else is there for you to use. Hardwood/ceramic floors, with ceiling fans in every room. Non smoking and adults are preferred. You are more than welcome to smoke out on the deck and patio area.

There are other 1 bedroom units in the building available. Please feel free to call me for any question.

Located centrally to a vacationers delight, Fine dining and beach restaurants and night life within walking distance. Tampa International Airport as well as Busch Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo, Hard Rock Cafe, Channel Side and the Florida Aquarium are only 30 minutes away. We are located just 90 minutes away from Orlando's Disney World, Epcot, MGM, Sea World, and Universal Studios and lego land. Sports fans - we are only a few minutes away from Tropicana Field centrally located to many baseball spring training camps. Only 30 minutes from Tampa Stadium and the Ice Palace and Tampa's historic Ybor City for dining and shopping. Beach trolley for those who do not drive. We have churches, supermarkets, drugstores.
