I stayed here for the period Mar 3-25/2012 and had a wonderful time. My 23 year old daughter came for the first 10 days and my 42 year old son for the following 11 days. We all loved the place. Eating our breakfasts and lunches on the balcony with the Bay right below us and the warm breezes blowing was outstanding and so relaxing. The one bedroom condo also had a sofa bed where the kids slept. We were right on the corner of the building closest to the Green Iguana restaurant which could be a bit noisy at night but nothing disturbing. They always shut down the entertainment around 11:00PM so it wasn't a problem. My kids slept next to the balcony with open doors but were not inconvenienced at all.
The condo itself was comfortable and very clean except the carpets were badly stained. I informed the owners, who live in Buffalo, NY and they said they would look after that problem right away as they were not aware of the problem due to they're not being at the condo for a couple of years.
We loved the place, felt very safe and enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the convenience of the shopping. Everything we needed was within 10 minutes including the beautiful gulf beaches.

We never had any problems at all and I am very surprised about the difficulties mentioned by others. We absolutely would come again.

I had to cancel my trip 3 days before the deadline and had a horrible time getting in touch with anyone from the front desk. I left 4 messages in one day and NEVER received a return phone call, when I finally got through to a live person he was the rudest man I have ever talked to and would not take my information, he told me to call a company somewhere in Vero beach and then hung up on me. I was finally able to cancel thru priceline but not before i spent most of the day trying to make one simple phone call. I would NEVER EVER recommend this place based on customer service

#404 was a perfect place to stay at when we were in St Petersburg.
Waterfront with a lovely poolarea, inclusive jacuzzi and barbeque area. From the balcony adn poolare you can see the dolphins playing!!
The apartment had all kind of equipment as dishwasher, washing mashine and even product as a cooler to take to the beach and beachtoys.

The location was perfect with 5 min th shopping, beach, tenniscourse, golfcourse, restaurants etc....
We loved our stay here and will definatley come back!

Clean and newfurnished so the feeling was very good!!

We stayed in unit # 202 in March 2012. Very disappointed, excessive noise from the cars, trucks, motor cycles, etc. Condo was very cheaply decorated, not worth the $1200 we
paid for one week. We will never return.

Waterfront with pool and heated yacuzzi. Clean and modern apt. with new furniture. Playstation and 2 flat screen TVs. Fully equipped kitchen and free Wi-Fi. Plenty of beach toys to borrow and more for the kids.
Parking in the shade and Green Iguana next door. Dolphins playing just outside and spectacular sunsets. Safe neighbourhood close to all the beaches and shopping.
We loved it and will definately come back.
Back side is traffic on the bridge wich could be heard from the balcony. We closed the window and heard nothing. :)

We were in unit 407 which was very nice and had all we needed. The two negatives about this holiday experience was the noise from the barking dogs, there are just to many animals allowed in this resort. The pool and hot tub should not be closed at dusk. What is the problem with adults using these after dark.
