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.

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 on...no 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.

Great location and easy parking

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean when we arrived. Easy parking. We even got to check in early. The location of the condo is just around the corner from Upham Beach. We couldn't see the ocean from the condo, but not a huge deal to us. If you are traveling with anyone that has a bad back or is older, don't plan on them sleeping on the pull out sleeper sofa bed. I tried it for Ken second and couldn't do it. I am sure the bed is fine for teenagers or younger. The pool was close by as well, right across from the beach. It seems like a very slow, easy going area. I am glad we got this condo and not a hotel. The restaurants in the area were not that impressive, but there were a ton to choose from. If you like bar food and deep fried meals, this town is for you. Lol. We rented a car and drive about 7 minutes to John's Pass boardwalk. Lots of shops and restaurants there. Overall th property was perfect.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review on the condo. The restaurants on the beach do serve mostly the type of food described however downtown St. Pete has more upscale dining options and craft beer selections. Looking into a more comfortable mattress for the sleeper sofa! If your travel plans bring you back to the area hope you will consider staying with us again.

Very clean, relaxing and cozy condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed some R&R to say the least after a rough fall and winter. Immediately after Christmas, I began searching for the perfect place for us to spend two weeks and found Krist's cozy condo. I immediately booked our flights and then the condo. It was the perfect place for us to relax and enjoy the beach. Everything is within walking distance thus we didn't need a car! it was perfect! We even took the CAT to downtown St. Pete's which was awesome and we even caught a baseball game with the Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays playing! That was awesome and bonus! Only one suggestion I make is that it could use a little more pots and pans along with a couple frying pans. This isn't a complaint by any means, just a suggestion as it was a little difficult to cook as I would when home. I didn't cook much all the same, but was in need of another frying pan and pot when I did. Thanks again Kristi, and as I have already mentioned, we will be back!! probably as early as August or October! Thanks for everything! P.S. Kristi was on top of everything to make sure our stay was enjoyable. She replies to emails very quickly as well! thanks again Kristi!

Stay at St Pete Beach

  • 4 of 5

Just around the corner, we were at the beach which was fantastic. We enjoyed a long walk on the beach most days and sometimes at night. Close to a variety of restaurants. My husband enjoyed the big screen TV. Using laundry facilities was easy and quick. Sorry this review is so late tried several times and guess I wasn't doing it right. Melba Crouch-Kubat
