Why Kristi chose Saint Pete Beach

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!!!! We love the pristine white sugary sands and the warm turquoise waters of St. Pete Beach combined with the array of so many things to see and do! St. Pete Beach and it's surrounding areas have several types of activities for all age groups and interests.

What makes this condo unique

Love the proximity to the beach! Can literally walk 200 steps and we are on the sand. There's also a snack bar located directly on the beach to grab a bite to eat and a ice cold soda or brew. The condo is located west of Gulf Blvd so no busy streets to cross. There are many local bars and restaurants within walking distance. Historic Corey Ave is 5 blocks away and don't forget to check out downtown St. Petersburg on Central Ave with it's many unique dining and drinking establishments located on beautiful Tampa Bay. Gulfport is a funky little artsy town with it's unique dining and shops that's worth a trip to as well.

Great location on St Pete Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Gulf Winds resort in St Pete Beach. The complex's location is fantastic! You are right across the street from Upham Beach and within two blocks of great little bars and restaurants. The owner of this property was very helpful to us - answered all questions promptly. We had requested two beach chairs, and she said that there were two chairs in the condo. When we arrived, one of the chairs was broken. We contacted her, asking if we would buy a new chair, would she reimburse us. She said yes, no problem! So we bought another chair, and within a day, we were reimbursed in our bank account for the cost. The condo itself is decorated very cute with all beach-themed accents and furniture. Condo was clean, cable tv service was great, fast & secure wifi service within the condo, plenty of sheets and towels. We would not have a problem renting this unit again if we were to stay in St Pete Beach!

Amazing honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

Kristi was beyond accommodating for us as we traveled to st Pete for our honeymoon! The condo was the perfect size for the two of us & had a kitchen so we didn’t have to eat out for every meal. Quiet area with a two minute walk to the beach- it was fantastic! The sunsets were the most beautiful I have ever seen. We will stay here again if we come back to st Pete’s

Love St. Pete Beach & Gulf Winds

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a 2-week stay in Gulf Winds. The check-in procedures were spot problems. The condo location was perfect...loved being right across the street from the beach and the pool was very nice. The condo was furnished nicely, with all the necessities for cooking in if desired. We were very comfortable during our stay. Kristi is very accesssible for any questions or concerns regarding the condo. We enjoyed our stay very much , however, the weather could have been better. January in Florida is unpredictable!!!! Would definitely make a return visit to this condo.

So close to the beach....

  • 4 of 5

This is a great property, perfect for a couple with small fully stocked kitchen and steps from the beach, free parking, free wifi. Close (easy walking distance) to many good restaurants. And the beach....did I mention how close to the beach? Beautiful. Also recommend Fort Desoto park a short drive away, more beach.
