Guestbook comments from the host:
We had an amazing week staying in your rental unit. The unit was just perfect for us and enhanced our stay in Florida. Thank you for contributing to our fantastic vacation.
We have been at your lovely condo since Saturday and are enjoying every single minute!
We were lucky enough to find your property while we were in SPB last year and fortunate to actually get in and look around. We thought we loved it then...but the upgrades you have made since last year have made it even better! The beautiful new drapes and bedding are awesome. That first visit to check out the apartment was quick and we didn’t spend a lot of time poking around. So, I don’t know if the microwave and dishwasher are brand new, but they sure do look it! The bathrooms are perfect (that shower in the master is awesome!). The kitchen is fully equipped for all our cooking needs and there is ample space throughout the apartment. And the place was sparkling clean when we arrived. Honestly, we couldn’t be happier.
Thank you so much for making our stay at your property a complete pleasure. We are delighted that we still have over three weeks to spend here and beyond happy that we can look forward to coming back in 2021.
With gratitude and our best regards,
P.S. Our friends who are in the area for all of February are completely envious and wondering if you know of any other property owners at Gulf Strand who rent either directly or through the management team on property.
We stayed for a week in Unit 205, and could NOT have been happier! The turquoise beachy decor was so lovely...plenty of space, comfortable, nice kitchen, 2 full baths - even chairs and a cooler for the beach. Walking directly onto the beach with no roads to cross was the best part. Fabulous location, wonderful staff and guests...and Betty in the office is an angel! We cannot wait to come back again! Gulf Strand has a place in our hearts now!

Condo 205 at Gulf Strand
Hi we stayed at the gulf strand from May 14th to May 28th . The condo is absolutely beautiful and clean,well stocked with cook ware and stuff for the beach except for an umbrella I could have used one we are beach people. The only draw back was the public parking it can be very loud there at times in the night time. We booked again for next year and can’t wait to get back. The beach location is really good too. Betty in the office is really nice to deal with as well very friendly. I would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a beach vacation .

King size bed very comfortable and the private balcony was icing on the cake! Another thing what was great about this place is walls are soundproof you don’t hear anything from next door! There is no running kids in the hallways,no slamming doors,absolutely amazing place! We are not going any other place on St Pete Beach anymore,Gulf Strand is our new home away from home! Ah and the pool is sooo clean,bbq grills super clean too! Betty the manager is AMAZINGLY AWESOME person and anything she is RIGHT ON IT AND SOOO VERY POLITE! If I could give this place 10 stars I would of!

Can’t wait to come back for our third stay!
This 1B, 2BA condo on the beach is simply perfect for us! The one-building, multi-unit Gulf Strand has direct and easy access to the beach, offering a choice of poolside or on-beach sun worshipping in a few easy steps. The property is very well managed (TRC’s Betty is delightful to work with) and the property’s maintenance is top notch.Our unit, #205, is lovely. Boasting a partial ocean view, a wall of mirrors to reflect this view, and just the right amount of blue hues in the decor, this condo is a pleasure to come home to! The unit is very clean and extremely well-stocked. The kitchen has everything you need for cooking in. There are also beach chairs, two different cooler options, beach towels and board games. There is extra bedding should you decide to use the pullout sofa for an occasional guest. The unit also boasts a stacked washer and dryer and two bathrooms. You will be lacking for nothing here!Brenda, the owner, is very easily accessible and responds quickly to any inquiries.This was our second stay in #205 and it was a week longer than our first. Our next visit will be even longer...and we can’t wait!

Summer Vacation with Kids - Excellent *****
The condo we stayed in, Unit 209, was simply beautiful. Tastefully decorated and had all the necessary items we needed. The pull out sofa was extremely comfortable. Even the linens provided were first class. The building itself was meraculously maintained.I would definitely recommend this condo association to anyone. The office staf were great also - they are on site daily to provide any assistance you need.

Wonderful condo, right on the beach! Has pool and spa, which is very nice. Everyone is so helpful and nice to deal with. I would have given it five stars, except their is no place for guests to park. You have to go to office(and they were very good about this)and they would try and get a parking space for ;your guests, if one was not being used. Otherwise, it is a Great Place! Near grocery store and many places to eat, all within walking distance.

Each unit is provided with one assigned parking space and when I have friends visiting, the office has been very accommodating. There is also a public parking lot adjacent to the building which we have used on occasion. We hope to have you return in the future.Regards, Brenda and Dave
We rented this property for the first two weeks of April. The location is perfect, on the beach, but a very short walk to the Publix and numerous great restaurants. Although we had a car, we used the local Beach Trolley to get down to Pass-a-Grill and into the city for a couple of excursions. We enjoyed the pool and the pristine beach on a daily basis. Everything was as described. The only recommendation we would make is to update the mattress.

Thank you Mary McDaid. I’m delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay and appreciate the fantastic location. We continue to do upgrades each year and I thank you for your feedback regarding the mattress. We purchased this mattress in 2017 and opted for a good quality firm king size.
Love this unit and it's location
This complex is in a great location, right on St. Pete Beach and close to many restaurants, bars, ice cream shops and a Publix. The beach is beautiful and spacious, we never felt crowded. The unit is decorated very nice and was the cleanest unit we've ever stayed in. It was also very well appointed. Check-in and check-out was simple and fast. The owner is very easy to work with and makes booking the unit simple. We loved that there were two full baths and a new fold out sofa bed. The king bed in the bedroom was extremely comfortable! We would stay here again!!

Beautiful Condo that feels like home
The condo 205 is very beautiful and inviting. This is my 5th year staying here and it just gets better and better each year. The condo is spacious with two great bathrooms which we love and one bathroom has just been recently updated and is beautiful. The King size bed is so comfortable with great linens. The living room has all new furniture with a large flat screen TV. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glasses and so on, nothing you can't find there. Also having a washer and dryer right in the condo at your finger tips is certainly an added bonus. Also the fact that calls to anywhere in Canada and the US are free is great as it certainly saves when you have family to check on back home. I also have to say that the staff in the main office Betty and Martin are great to deal with and are always there to help. I would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a beautiful place right on the beach. It also has a nice pool to relax by later in the day, I am only home a few days and can't wait to go back again next year.

A Must Stay
This property was perfectly located, one block from the beach and steps away from many eateries on the beach and off. The condo was immaculate and provided everything we needed and more....including beach chairs! There is a community pool right outside our door but still located inside the gated area. The pool was clean and a perfect size. Loved the idea of the entrance to the condos are key pad locked. The parking, sidewalks and pool deck areas were all very well maintained and clean. Would definitely recommend staying here!

Had a wonderful stay at Waves 6
We had a great vacation at The Waves in St. Pete Beach. We stayed in unit 6 which is a beautiful, well equipped condo (which includes its own washer and dryer) situated in a quiet area just an easy 10 minute walk to the beach. The owners, as well as the rental company were wonderful to deal with. We have vacationed at The Waves for 6 years and have met many people who also return each year. It feels like a reunion of friends each time we go. I look forward to lazing by their beautiful pool again next year. D. Butt.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this fully renovated, exceptionally clean, well equipped condo. The wonderful ocean view, modern furnishings and decor, comfortable bed, fully equipped kitchen, in-suite laundry as well as having two full washrooms make this unit a perfect holiday retreat. This beachfront property has a beautiful pool and hot tub overlookig the ocean as well as a bbq area perfect for larger group gatherings or a family supper outside.

I'm delighted to hear you had an awesome stay in our Unit #205 and you were pleased with our recent renovations. I'm disappointed we couldn't accommodate you for February 2019 as we love to accommodate returning guests. Our unit is in big demand for February, March and April and the dates are filled quite early. Thankfully, Betty in the rental office looked after securing another unit for you; and hopefully we will have the opportunity to be of service in the future. Best regards, Brenda
