About Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez
Two sons and a daughter complete our family of five. We live in Nashville, TN and Bowling Green, KY. Older son Reed is an engineering graduate out of WKU is married to Danielle and works/lives in Madison, WI. Our daughter Rachel is a business graduate out of UK and works/lives in Louisville, KY. Our youngest Grant is an engineering student at UA Tuscaloosa. Charlotte and I have vacationed in Hawaii, Turks & Caicos, Bahamas, South America - etc. and all great wonderful vacation locations. But we always relax and spend time on the Gulf Beaches of Florida. The location is always ideal for weather, activities, friends and family. Great location and easy to get to and so much to do. Pro sports teams in Tampa, Busch Gardens, Gulf beauty and of course we would always go to Orlando and enjoy everything Orlando has to offer - from Disney, to Sea World to the Orlando Magic. This is simply a great location and this condo is beachfront - top floor - 40 minutes from Tampa airport - 30 minutes from Clearwater airport - and located in Treasure Island on the world famous St. Pete beaches . . . what more can you say. There is so much to do - deep see fishing, charters, John's Pass - etc. Getting here is easy for Western Hemisphere and European vacationers and you can start your vacation right away. We have enjoyed this area immensely.
Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez purchased this Condo in 2018
Why Rick and Charlotte Gonzalez chose Treasure Island
We have vacationed in the Central Gulf area for over 30 years. Our first stay at Sunset Vistas was in 2007 - and we thought it was gorgeous. Activities for young and old and our second son and third child greatly enjoyed the Kiddy pool. The two older ones spent all day in the larger pool and then at sunset on the gorgeous beach. The beach is truly world class - just Google Map it and see from above then walk it when you are there. Activities in the area are endless. Charlotte enjoyed the restaurants and shopping nearby. Great location to fly to - great location to drive to - and great location to center your vacation from and/or enjoy all that is literally within walking distance of Sunset Vistas!
What makes this Condo unique
There is a lot. Sweeping views - see it on Google - from this top floor condo, sunset walks while watching seagulls coast by, hot tub, pool, grills - bike rides on the beach. Middle Grounds Grill is a 5 minute walk away - Rickey T's another 2 minutes and more great places to eat - Sloppy Joe's to the south (at Bilmar Hotel) - and Bubba Gumps and Hooters in John's Pass (and more). Also, and for one price ALL DAY, the Sun Coast Trolley will take you from St. Pete Beach to Sand Key (Clearwater) with unlimited stops - all for one price! Again, you don't need a car - other family members can arrive earlier/later when you give them your security code AND if you do have a car (or are on business) the significant others can still get around - if they are not at the beach or the pool all day long. Again, there is a shuttle to/from the airport ($36 last checked) and great trolley on the beach. Ferry, Boat and Charter Related activities abound out of John's Pass which is a hub for such items. Including Deep Sea Fishing Charters - Parasailing - Sailing Charters - Speed Boat Tours - Honeymoon Ferry Service - Dimares Yachts - Tampa Bay Boat Charters - Capt George Roux - Jet Skis - and more Golf, Golf Course and Adventure Golf Related from Smuggler's Cove Adventure Golf to Treasure Bay Golf and Tennis. Pro Sports Teams in the Area Tampa Bay Buccaneers » American Football --- Tampa Bay Devil Rays » Baseball --- Tampa Bay Lightning » Ice Hockey --- Orlando Magic » Basketball ---

Absolutely Top Shelf Accommodations and Location
Unit is perfect in every way for a great beach vacation on the Gulf coast !!
All aspects of the unit and the complex have to be rated as first class, from the glassware to the beach chairs provided, from the pool to the tiki bar and everything in between; you will be hard pressed to find a better place to relax and still be in close proximity to some fantastic spots along Gulf Blvd. The beach itself is gorgeous, wide and long. with loads of interesting shells and warm but refreshing salt water anytime you want to plunge in along the way.
Your hosts Rick and Charlotte have done an impressive job of describing and picturing exactly what the unit is like; 100% accurate, and they are very responsive to any questions about the unit or the area. They are serious about you having a great time in any of their units and we seriously did have a great time and recommend staying with them if you a fortunate enough to book with them....Enjoy your stay!! Peter & Erin B.
Dear Peter and Erin - love the review and thank you for the detail and sharing your experience for future renters. Sincerely, Rick and Charlotte
Treasure Island is blessed with over 3 miles of white sandy Gulf Coast beaches. Yearlong activities include swimming, boating, fishing, golfing or just taking a long walk down the beach. We are part of the 13th largest metropolitan area in the United States and are only a 45 minute drive from Tampa International Airport, Busch Gardens and only a 2 hour drive from the Orlando area. Clearwater Airport is about 10 minutes closer than Tampa International but does not have volume of flights and carriers - but worth checking from your city.
Treasure Island got its name after several property owners buried and then 'discovered' a couple of wooden chests on the beach. After claiming the chests were filled with treasure news of the discovery quickly spread and the name was born - Treasure Island!
You know you will be in Treasure Island when you pass the famous Pirate's Welcome and Treasure Chest or cross one of the three bridges that bring you to a tropical world of lush flowers, palm trees, parrots, pelicans and dolphins. You can consider this your home away from home - and stretch your toes in the sand and wash your troubles away.
