Gulf View Condos, 104 Gulf Drive South

Has anyone stayed at Gulf View Condos recently? There are several condos available on VRBO and also through Mike Norman Realty. They look good, but I would appreciate any info from anyone who's been there. I am considering a 10 day stay for me and my husband arriving early October. Thanks!

Gulf View Condos is a smaller property and are individually owned so the unit would depend on the owner as with most condos on the island. The area is good, close to the trolley stop and all the actvivites on Bridge Street.

Also, take a look at La Costa Condos, they are in the same area and the property is a biit nicer with more landscaping, tennis courts and a great pool area.

October is a slow month so you could get a great deal, shop around!

Thanks for your reply! I have just emailed an enquiry to Mike Norman Realty, so we'll see what they can offer me. This will be part of a 3 week trip to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, so I don't want any problems. The location of Gulf View condos looks good, with shops and eating places within walking distance. Don't mind if its not super luxury as long as its clean and comfy! Our flights are booked, so all I need now are places to stay. Thanks again.

You are welcome. We have used Mike Norman many times and they have always been very professional. I'm sure you will find the perfect place and remember that October is a slower month so dont be afraid to negoiate price.

I have stayed at two different condos there and loved both.

That's good to hear - thank you! I have been taking my time to make the final decision, and was just about to get back to Mike Norman Realty when I saw your reply. Which condo numbers did you stay in and who did you book with? The one we are looking at is 105. Do you have any suggestions as to the best ones to stay in? I'd much appreciate any hints or tips or info on the property.

Thanks in advance.

I can also ease your mind. The location is great. You are beach front. The building may be on the old side but like said above the units are individually owned. location is excellent.

Have fun

Thanks for your replies everyone. I've just made my reservation with Mike Norman Realty and so far they've been very helpful. The rental was $1457 for the 12 nights, ie $850 a week. (Hope that sounds reasonable RustyKat!!) We are in Florida for 3 weeks total and have decided to do 12 nights on Anna Maria first and then 9 nights somewhere between Clearwater and St Pete's Beach. We have previously stayed at Indian Rocks Beach so my next job now is to look for somewhere to stay in that area, but maybe a little further south than IRB. I will do reviews when we get back home. Thanks again for all your input guys!
