About Carolyn Burquette

I've been buying and selling Real Estate Rental Properties since 1995 beginning on Clearwater Beach. After being in Treasure Island, FL I decided this was the perfect place to own a vacation rental because of it's white sandy beach and location to the many attractions, including Downtown St Petersburg and ease of getting to the interstate. I've even made Treasure Island my home!

Carolyn Burquette purchased this condo in 2006

Why Carolyn Burquette chose Florida Central Gulf Coast

When I discovered there was a brand new Gulf front complex being built on Treasure Island Beach, I wanted to buy a unit. At the time, buying pre-contruction allowed a significant reduction in price so I bought one and watched as it grew into one of the most beautiful properties on the beach. Being an original owner has allowed me to watch how popular and family friendly Sunset Vista Condos has become over the years.

What makes this condo unique

Location is close to literally everything! There is an ice cream shop right next door, and a convenience store right across the street. Johns Pass is right over the bridge with shops, restaurants and water activities. There are many restaurants within walking distance.The best part is watching the Sunset every night right from your balcony!

WOW!!!

  • 5 of 5

As a returning guest at SSV, WOW! is usually what I say once we arrive at the condo, walk to the balcony and see the view. This was the first time renting from a private owner and it turned out to be a great idea.

WOW! was the first thought I had the minute we opened the front door to this condo. Right away you could tell that someone (Carol) loved this place, took care of it and wanted her guests to feel comfortable and right at home. From the pictures on the wall to the little decorations all around.

The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need. Utensils, pots, pans, baking dishes, different size plates, bowls, cups, glasses you name it. And they all matched!!

TV trays to eat one, beach towels, beach chairs, beach toys, lots of stuff to get you started. There was even a bottle of aloe in the MB bathroom in case you make the mistake of not using enough sunscreen.

The king size bed in the MB was so comfy and there were four different pillows to choose from.

I was a bit concerned about noise and privacy being on the 3rd floor so close to the pool and tiki bar but neither was an issue at all. My only complaint is that we had to leave this place.

Thank you Carol for making our stay at your condo our best trip so far. Your hospitality went above and beyond what we expected.

Fantastic Condo and Management

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed the first week of October and found the condo immaculate, stocked with towels, toiletries, kitchen sundries, and modestly stated in case my wife ever reads this review, as clean as home. The unit's living room is bigger in person than it appears in the posted pictures. The beds and furniture were like new in comfort and appearance. The condo provides beach towels and "sitting," beach chairs. You should want for nothing.

Relative to the complex it was at about a little more than half capacity during our time judging from the number of cars in the parking lots and about half of other renters were families with children. Everyone was very well behaved and polite. Looking south from our beach one will be pleased with the proximity to the surf. As you venture south the beaches become wider and wider to the extent that walking to the surf would be burdensome. The well-kept common areas were always clean and staff were plentiful and pleasant. The decor is top notch most particularly in the courtyard. In short and after seeing the other closely located complexes I would not have traded places.

We had a couple minor hiccups with noise (i.e. conversation,) in the later evening and after the 10:00 p.m. curfew outside the gulf front unit (we like to retire with windows open to enjoy the surf,) and after a couple e-mails to Carol the matter was handled quickly, professionally, and to everyone's satisfaction. The entire process from booking to check-out and communications in between shows that value in dealing with experienced and caring agents such as Carol.

I would strongly recommend this experience to anyone who asked. Have a good vacation.

Great unit with a view

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at SSV and can't say enough good things about the condo and the owner. The condo was clean and well stocked with the basics including beach towels, beach umbrella, beach chairs and sand toys. The view from the balcony is amazing for watching the sunset and it was a very short walk to the beach. The property has two pools and our son loved having the option to go between the beach and splash pad which was about 1ft 1/2 at it's deepest. We found the condo to be the perfect size for 4 adults and a toddler and the owner was kind enough to have a playpen and booster chair setup in the unit upon our arrival for no extra charge. Communication with the owner was great! She responded promptly to all my questions and requests. We definitely plan on renting this unit for future trips to the area!

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at Carol's condo in Sunset Vistas and everything was perfect! We planned our 30th Wedding Anniversary trip earlier this year (not expecting Irma to arrive the week before us!). Carol was wonderful keeping us up to date and we were very lucky that it was a go!! When we arrived we were welcomed with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a card for our anniversary!! Such a kind gesture and wonderful start to our trip! The condo is clean, beautifully decorated, very well taken care of and the ocean front view is perfect. We saw the most beautiful sunsets right from the balcony. Carol was very helpful and so easy to work with. We will definitely be back!!

An amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for a full week. We had the best service from Carolyn. She was very informative and helpful. There was nothing we didn't need that wasn't in condo. A beautiful view & perfect location. Will rent again without a doubt!!
