Guestbook comments from the manager

John's Pass boardwalk is a great place to watch for dolphins in the evening. Finally saw dolphins off the balcony on our last morning and a stingray the morning before. Great trip to relax & recharge!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a few nights before heading to a place on the coast. It was everything as described.

We enjoyed being in a different area, watching the boats go in and out and the beautiful sunsets from the balcony. There was also a great walking/biking path accessible nearby.

The highway is noisy upon entering, but once you are in the condo, you do not notice the highway noise.

Willy, the caretaker/mtc was so kind and helpful. We enjoyed meeting and visiting with him!

Beautifully furnished, small but well designed. Location is excellent.

This was my second year at Boca Ciega Resort. The property is very clean, safe and well maintained. A bus stop is located right outside the property so you can easily get around the area if you don't have a car. This unit overlooks Boca Ciega Bay so you can often see dolphins playing right outside. Even on windy, cool days you are able to sit on the balcony and enjoy the beautiful days and sunsets.

Excellent Views

  • 4 of 5

We spent December 25th 2015 to January 2nd 2016

The condo was very comfortable, all the amenities were great. The views were amazing and the Dolphins visited every morning around 9am.

The owner was very easy to communicate with. Our overall experience was good. The only thing I would say was not up to par was the cleaning. My wife and I own a cleaning business so we are a bit fussy. The top of the fridge was dirty as was the fan hood over the burners. But besides that everything else was wonderful. We had an amazing time and would go back in an instant. Thank you Garges we had a great time. Also the location in relation to Johns Pass and Treasure Island was great. All grocery stores were very close.

Beautiful !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this condo for our honeymoon stay since we have a beach wedding. This place was decorated nicely and very clean. It had all the amenities needed. The balcony view was great and we saw dolphins!! The owner followed up with us to ensure everything was good. We loved this place and will be back!

Lovely! Balcony was wonderful, view enjoyable!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed my getaway at Bay Pines. Groceries close (Publix, WalMart, Target). Bus stop right outside (although I had a car). Location is close to Maderia Beach. Pool was wonderful, quiet and you have your choice of sun or shade. Studio furnishings very comfortable. Two beach chairs available for your beach trip. Nice furniture on the balcony as well. Stacked washer and dryer in the unit was very convenient. Owner was very responsive to my emails and made a late checkout possible. Property was very clean and well-maintained. I would recommend this property to those who want to be a bit removed from the beach but close enough to get in the car and be there in 5-10 minutes. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

FABULOUS Condo & View !

  • 5 of 5

I have to say " Thank You" to Garges for being so gracious & accommodating regarding a few requests that I made of her prior to my arrival, and how easy she was to get in touch with! I visit the area 5 to 6 times a year and have stayed in numerous locations and I have to say that this condo was exactly as advertised , if not nicer!

I loved it! The view was fantastic regardless of the weather ! I was lucky enough to witness some truly amazing thunderstorms from the balcony! I look forward to returning there as soon as I can get away from work!

Also, on a personal note, ...I have read a few reviews posted here and although I agree with the majority of them, I find myself disagreeing with one regarding the comfort level of the bed/mattress. I can only speak for myself, but I found the bed to be comfortable, at least to my taste; also, the few time that I wanted to contact Garges, she was only a phone call away.

The only problem I had was that I had to leave! I could have easily spent a month in this lovely condo! Thanks again Garges! See you again soon!

Owner's Response: Gary, thank you for the kind words! I think you realize how hard we work to make this condo a wonderful vacation 'home away from home'. We have already taken one of your suggestions and have gotten a really cool combo strainer and cutting board for over the sink! What a great idea!!
