My boyfriend and I are returning to St Pete the 3rd week of Sept, 2013.
Could anyone recommend a condo or private rental on the waterway in Treasure Island, St Pete, or Pass-a-Grille not too far off of Gulf Blvd. We would like to be able to walk back to the property from one of the local shutte stops. We will have a car but want to keep it parked after having drinks. It would need to be ground level (husband has a minor disability), full kitchen, and outdoor bbq area (not shared) . Ideally a nice size porch or private sitting area outside where we could spend evenings watching the boaters and lights on the water while grilling and enjoying evening drinks. We really only need 1BR and 1 BA but would consider a larger unit if the other amenities called our name. A pool is not a requirement, a jucuzzi might be nice but also not required. We would enjoy morning fishing from a dock close to our property.
We usually spend our days beachside so we thought it would be a nice change to spend our mornings and evenings on the intercoastal (intracoastal ??), not sure which is correct.
I have spent way too many hours scouring the vbro, homeaway, etc sites. There is WAY TOO much info out there, just hoping that someone could recommend one from personal experience.
Oh, and we're not loaded so keep that in mind. The one thing I have found thru my searches is that I believe we can afford a lot more house or condo than hotel room for the money.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
