We spent two weeks in early December at the Caprice and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was a quiet time (off season), but we enjoyed the relaxed pace.
We rented a unit not from the main agency but from an off-site management agency: http://www.resortrentals.us/condo_caprice.php This unit was on the top (5th) floor with a great view down the main beach, see photo.
The location was outstanding -- the main beach was basically just outside the front door, and a wide selection of great bars and restaurants were only a short walk away.
Our only complaint was slow response on a maintenance problem with the dishwasher.
All in all, we had a great time and hope to get back again soon.

My husband, toddler son & parents stayed in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo at the Caprice Thanksgiving week, and it was perfect for us. The condo was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed for a week's stay (including items like dish soap, cooking supplies, towels, beach chairs/toys, wine glasses). The management even delivered a cooked turkey to us the day before Thanksgiving.
All condos have balconies facing the ocean & pool. We stayed in a condo with renovated bathrooms and kitchen & new flat screen tv's but older (well-maintained) carpet and furniture. However, not all condos have been renovated, so it's advisable to call or view the YouTube videos of most condos that are available from the property website to make sure you book a condo that has been updated. You can request specific condos, as long as they are available.

The facilities include a pool, 2 grills, shuffle board, free parking & a very tiny workout facility (1 bike, 1 treadmill, 10 lb free weights, small bench machine -- I opted for beach runs). The facilities are older but are meticulously maintained. The pool was never crowded, but did usually have a handful of children in it.

The property is perfect for families or couples - it is not a party place like some neighboring hotels. But, with that being said, it's within walking distance to at least 15 beach bars and restaurants. For me, it's the perfect location because you can walk to dinner or a beach bar and enjoy the sunset, loud music and evening out, but return to a quiet and peaceful night's rest without the late night raucous at some of the beach hotels I've previously stayed.

The Caprice is also a great value, especially if you have a group of 4-6. I have stayed in at least 15 different properties (mostly hotels, but a few condos) along St Pete Beach and neighboring beaches, and this one really outshines almost all(if not all) of them, especially for it's price range. We will undoubtably be back!

We stayed for two weeks in October this year in condo 403 at the Caprice. Just me and my wife for the first time without the kids, all away now. 403 has everything for a very comfortable stay. The very best thing though was waking up with a view of the whole beach down to Pass a Grille from the bedroom window then every morning walking (and a bit of running ....but not much :) down to the Don Cesar hotel and back. Seabirds galore to watch, pelicans diving into the sea just yards off the shore and some really friendly people. Yes and we did see dolphins playing in the sea just off shore at dusk on the last night which was fantastic too. So all in all a good value and relaxing holiday in a town with plenty of varied retaurants etc.

We have stayed at the Caprice for years. Each unit is individually owned and the building is managed by a management company. The property is very well maintaned and very clean. I agree that Sue, in the office could work on her people skills. We love it here because the beach is perfect and so is the condo. Great gulf view and very relaxing. Restaurants and grocery store are in walking distance. Park your car and enjoy walking to nearby restaurants. I would recommend the Caprise to people without kids, not much for them to do here and small pool.
It is perfect for us.

We have been vacationing in St. Pete Beach for 17 years, and have always stayed at TradeWinds, which was great - but very noisy and expensive. We were able to stay at Caprice (unit 306) for a whole week for the cost of 3 nights at TradeWinds. I loved the fabulous balcony view of the beach, the privacy, and ability to be less dependent on eating out with the kitchen facilities. Caprice is now our new favorite, and we will definitely return.

We have stayed at the Caprice for four years now and absolutely love the place. Not only do we get to see the fabulous fireworks on the 4th, but the condo is like a home away from home. The condo is always clean, and the management is friendly and approachable. If there is ever a problem, they are very helpful.

We have had a positive experience each year that we come here and could not imagine staying anywhere else. It's quiet and relaxed - just what you’re looking for in a vacation. The past two years, we've even got up close and personal with the manatees and dolphins right in the Bay. Our kids were ecstatic!

There are so many great little restaurants to choose from, many within walking distance, that you will have a hard time deciding where to eat. If you choose to eat in, the BBQ's are fully gassed and ready to go - they even have a wonderful view of the gulf.

The Caprice is a slice of paradise on the Florida Gulf Coast!

We recently returned from a one week stay at the Caprice and had a wonderful time. We were in a 2 bed / 2 bath unit on the 1st floor and it was very nicely furnished and equipped with everything we could possible need (with the exception of food!). We were travelling with 2 teenage girls and they had a great time. The views of the beach / ocean were very nice from our balcony and the sunset was breathtaking. The pool temperature was just right and we never had any issues with getting a lounge chair and the pool was never overcrowded. There is a construction site currently beside the resort that may take away a bit from the view and you need to walk around their fencing to get to the beach but it really in no way affected the quality of our vacation. There are lots of restaurants, shops, grocery stores, etc. all close by - many within walking distance. We will be back again!
