My mother and I went to "St Pete Beach" for her 60th birthday weekend and found this little gem of a place. It is nicely tucked away from the traffic and hub-bub of St Pete and is conveniently located in Treasure Island. All the rooms have a private balcony that overlooks the beach and the gulf. The balcony design is truly private and unless you specifically lean out for a look, you won't notice your neighbors. The 2 bedroom 2 bath condo we rented had a full kitchen and really felt like a private condo that we wouldn't mind living in. The extra large balcony was shared by the Master bedroom and the main living area. The unit was clean, bright and nicely updated with granite counters and nice touches. The furnishings were not the typical cheap beachside furniture you would expect, but was cozy, sturdy and comfortable. The pool and jacuzzi were very nice and there was lots of outdoor space for either lounging or grilling out on the poolside BBq's. 2 recommendations for local places to eat- Caddy's on the Beach, which the hotel provided us a 50% off coupon for (awesome!) and La Cote Basque located in Gulport was a special treat. Excellent food, a cozy and romantic environment, family run and everything was amazingly fresh! The hotel was a quick ride to all points of interest including the new Dali museum.
We look forward to our next visit!
We had read on another site someone mentioned asking for a higher up room. When we got to the hotel...
