About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

Completely renovated and newly furnished ground floor corner unit with private entrance and outside patio located on popular Upham Beach. No need for a car as the condo is situated west of Gulf Boulevard approximately 200 steps from the white sugary sands of the Gulf of Mexico!

Soak up the sun and enjoy the tranquil turquoise waters using the provided beach chairs and towels. Feeling hungry? No need to run back to the condo when you can eat at Paradise Grill located beachside for a variety of breakfast/lunch items along with ice cold drinks including beer. After a day in the sun, why not jump into the refreshing pool for a qick dip.Inside, enjoy over 200 cable and music channels in HD on a 51 inch flat screen in living room and 24 inch flat screen in bedroom. Secure WIFI access available and unlimited local/long distance calling to US/Canada/Puerto Rico included. There is a fully equipped kitchen for all of one's needs.

Nightlife anyone? There are several local bars and restaurants within walking distance. Shark Tales, Crab Daddy's, Oyster Shucker's and Woody's are just a few serving up fresh local seafood and live entertainment. Try downtown historic Corey Avenue or artsy Gulfport for more delicious dining selections. It's only a short jaunt away by car or Suncoast trolley which runs daily between St. Pete and Clearwater beaches. Downtown St. Petersburg along Central Avenue provides more entertainment/dining options, a mere 15 minutes away. Orlando theme parks are 1.5 hours away. Tampa International Airport is conveniently located 30 minutes from Gulf Winds. So much to see and do the list is endless! As you return to the condo for the evening, take a stroll down to the beach to catch an amazing sunset and then retire peacefully on the inviting pillow top mattress to dream about your next days adventures!

Why Kristi chose St Petersburg Area

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 vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our one week vacation. Everything we needed was provided for us. The condo was decorated very nice and cozy. Home away from home. It was quiet for sleeping and relaxing. Access to the beach and pool was very close. We will return again!

Outstanding Location/Beautiful Accommodations/Friendly Neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I travelled to Florida to watch the Detroit Tigers in their Spring Training games. We searched the internet for a place to stay on the Gulf Coast, which would be our home base, to be able to enjoy the beautiful sunsets. When we viewed the features of the Gulf Winds-Upham Beach-St. Pete's Beach condominium, we agreed right away that this place would be perfect for our vacation. When we contacted the owner to inquire about the availability of this condo, we were very pleased with the speedy, pleasant and professional response. When we arrived at the complex, and then opened the door to our condo, we were overjoyed to see such an awesome place where we would stay for the week. The decor was very bright and coastal, and we felt relaxed immediately. Once we purchased our groceries, we were all set as everything else we needed was included in the condo. Being just a short block from the beach made the location very convenient for daily walks. There is a huge selection of restaurants and taverns conveniently located within a few blocks. We would definitely return to this location, as the experience was exceptional and will be remembered always. Thanks so much.

Comforable, clean and quiet. Everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this unit over Memorial Day weekend. The unit was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. The bed was very comfortable. The owner has beach chairs and an umbrella for use with the unit. Don't be scared off by the unit being next to a "nightclub". We stayed at the unit during a very busy weekend in St Pete Beach and we never heard anything from the nightclub. There never seemed to be more than a couple of people in there. I don't think the bar/restaurant is attracting people to their business. The pool was great. Nice families enjoying the property. The location was very close to the beach. Overall a wonderful stay. We would recommend this unit. Thanks, Kristi!

Description fails to mention the nightclub opening next door and the nightclub patrons outside the unit--not exactly expected in a "quiet residential neighborhood". Also eXpected to find a hair dryer as a basic small appliance and a starter supply of coffee since we arrived late. The wifi password and pool gate code provided were not accurate.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear that your expectations were not met. We were unaware of your concerns and requests until your review was posted. The establishment nearby is often closed more than open thus making it essentially a non issue. If your travel plans should bring you back to St. Pete Beach again we would love the opportunity to earn your business and make things right.

Great location for walking to beach and restaurants.

  • 4 of 5

Less than 2 blocks to the beach and many restaurants were within easy walking distance. Unit is well maintained and had everything we needed for a week in St Pete Beach. Only concern would have been if the night club in the same building was open each night. That could have been noisy but, fortunately for us, it was closed for some reason for the time we were there. I would recommend this property.
