Only 25 minutes on the 275 from Tampa International Airport, and you will find yourself at Isla Del Sol, a paradise island across the bridge from the famed, mile long, golden sands of St Petersburg beach. The Island which is accessible by roads is a golf course clustered with homes. It has its own tennis courts, its private beaches, and is a virtual bird sanctuary. Within the vicinity, are restaurants with nightly live entertainment, hairdressing salon, bank, fashion shops etc.
In one direction is St Petersburg beach, in the other is the award winning Fort De Soto island.
St Petersburg offers any kind of water sports, shopping malls and outlets, theatre, art galleries and museums, endless eating and entertainment. Boat trips, bowling, cruises, nature reserves and much more.
90 minutes and you are in Disney, Busch gardens etc. Closer in the opposite direction is Anna Maria Island, Sarasota, and further South is Naples, The Everglades, and Fort Myers for a ferry to the Keys.
Other Activities: theatre, bowling, nature reserves.
Golf: The golf course on the island is available to guests at Off Peak times, May to November I think. Otherwise, there are endless golf courses all around the area. People like to visit other courses just for the sake of variety.
My condo has been a refuge for me when I needed it and it's where I go to recharge my batteries, somewhere to regain my strengths, and gather my thoughts, though there is much to do and plenty to see.

The condo is across the bay from the Don Cesar, otherwise known as the Pink Palace.
From my kitchen I can see the water in between the 2 low rise blocks. On beautiful sunset evening, I will walk myself across the beautiful palm tree car park area to the benches at the water's edge and just look out for dolphins and watch the ocasional fisherman catch beautiful fish.
This condo offers all the comforts of home. There will be food in the cupboards and even a few things in the fridge. I have entertained 13 people and there is enough crockery and cutlery for this number. The floors were recently completely redone and the carpets removed in favour of a wood laminate flooring. The laundry facilities are behind louvre doors in the kitchen. These were new in 2017. There are beach towels and chairs as well as parasols. Not to mention beach toys and inflatables.
