“Can't wait to come back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014 via mobile

Before we left, my husband and I were already making plans to come back. We had 3 adults and 3 kids (3,6 and 8) in the room, and had enough space, although it got a little tight at night with the couch pulled out. Perfect location. We didn't have a car and mostly walked where we needed to go, except we took a tips-only taxi to johns pass for the pirate ship. Which was awesome! My husband loves to fish and got some insider tips from the local bait shop. Took our filets to The Friendly Fisherman, where they prepared our fish to perfection, only charging us for the sides. Had everything we needed, and found what we didn't have at Walgreens or Publix grocery store (both within walking distance). And the beach was beautiful, pool was warm, hot tub was out of order most of the trip but everything else was so lovely we didn't care much. Great place to go if you like to watch beautiful sunsets, bum on the beach, and RELAX! And I was told that, since we booked directly through them, we would get a discount for our next stay! We didn't want to leave.

Stayed here for 2 nights, for a staycation. Was about 45 min from Tampa, but seemed like a world away. The area was DEFINITELY an "old Florida" feel, with mostly low 1-2story motels, cottages, and condos. Our condo at THE SURF was a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo, directly overlooking Treasure Island beach. It was stocked with basics, from pots/pans and silverware, to ice cube trays, papertowels & dish soap. They have a coffee maker, but only supply 2 cups worth for brewing at the beginning of the stay. They also provide shampoo, conditioner & body wash, but if you're used to your own more upscale brands, I suggest bringing those items yourself. You are responsible to wash your own towels that you have used during your stay...I found that a little odd. You must empty out your garbage, which is right outside in the hallway.
There is a Publix grocery store down the street, about 1 mile from THE SURF. A gas station/convenience store is also on the main street, called "Gulf Blvd." . You can walk about 1 mile along the beach, on a cement lighted walkway. The beach is next to this walkway, and you can rent a cabana for the day, although I'm unsure of how much that cost is.
Overall, I payed $200/night, during peak season, which was end of January. Prices obviously vary, depending on the time of year you're booking your trip. But it was clean; on the beach side of Gulf Blvd., which all have beach views from lanai; and worth 2 bedrooms/2 bathrooms, plus use of a pool, outdoor grills (gas provided, but bring your own charcoal, if desired), and all anemities like a washer/dryer, utensils/plates/glasses, pots/pans/blender. Very very happy.

Room Tip: Stayed in #605...top floor, less traffic, best view overlooking the beach. Walls are thin, sliding d...

The Surf Beach resort is on an excellent location. The stag is very nice and the condo is nice but bedrooms are on the small side. The only complaint we had was the bed and pillows were not comfortable... And the sofa isn't very comfortable... But really how much time do you spend inside when you are on FL? The kitchen is set up well with everything you would need if you want to eat in!

I have stayed here several times and also at the sister property South Beach. Always clean & comfortable. The staff is fabulous and I will continue to stay at Sunsational Properties anytime I want to be at the beach!

Clean, comfortable, with friendly and adaptive service. We requested an early check in if possible and the staff called us within a half hour to let us know the condo was available. The unit had everything we needed for a home away from home comfortable stay.

The location is just great, to have an affordable vacation with ocean view. We stayed here for 7 days at the end of Dec 2013. Wide beach, lot of space. No problem walking forth and back the sea from the condor. We choosed the top-north condor. You can choose your own condor by booking directly from the management. Spacicous for 4 persons. If you are 5 or 6 in the party, you have to use the sofabed, and the livingroom is then much narrower. The pool is heated. One elevator for the whole building, so use the stairs if you can. The staff is friendly and helpful in any mean. Well equipted. Properly cleaned.

What could be better in my opinion?
- Don't overdo the use of artificial odor in the elevator and the condors. It smelled too much.
- Remove all the carpets in the condors. Use of carpets in rental condor is no good idea in order to keep it clean.
- Keep the condors ventilated before the guests arrive. We arrived very late, and were shocked by the terrible carpet-cleaning-ordor that met us when entering the condor.
- Provide enough chairs by the dinning table according in the party.
- The condors on the north side might be disturbed by the noise from the pool machines, much at night.

Room Tip: Book by your own through the management, then use can choose your own condor if avaiable. The outest...
