We stayed at Westwinds for this past week, seven nights. We rented a one bedroom condo, Room 309, and we were very pleased with our choice. The room was immaculate and everything was in working condition and very high quality. The furniture was stylish, as were the dishes, appliances, etc, as good as anything you would buy for your own home. The bedroom and kitchen overlooked the intercoastal, a very lovely view. The managers provided initial supplies, two rolls of toilet paper, a roll of paper towels, two dishwasher tabs. There is a Publix, as well as 24-hour Walgreens, right up the block, walking distance, for any needed supplies. Great AC. It was very quiet, but the bed was a bit hard. The property had a nice pool, small, but super clean, nothing fancy, but a great view of the inter coastal. While on property, you have a guest pass for the Club at Treasure Island. We did not go there, but we did drive past it and it looked very nice. In the back of the property is a nice patio with tables and barbecues. We did not use them, but they were new and looked great. We saw many people using them. The docks were a nice place to watch the fish and birds. We saw dolphins only once, early in the morning and we did see one manatee swim by the first evening we got there. Other than that, lots of fish and birds. The property is across the street from the beach, a short walk. The beach itself was very deep, a long walk to the water, and very rocky and shelly, wear water shoes. On site parking was very convenient. They give you one spot. We had visitors one day and they were very nice about letting them park also. Many places to eat within walking distance. We ate at Ricky T's, Sloppy Joes, Sea Hags (a quick drive), Waffle House, and a number of ice cream places. Nothing was fabulous, but all good choices. A few things to note, not complaints at all, but things I would want to know: there is no maid service, the main office is only open until 6:00 p.m., after that no managers on site, the resort does not provide beach supplies or fishing poles as mentioned in previous reviews. They do have some of these items that were left behind by other guests that you can use, but they were either old, broken, or in poor condition, condo had basically all you need, but no salt and pepper in shakers. Also, the property sells their condos, so there is quite a bit of real estate sales and remodeling going on at any given time...none of which was a bother. We visited the Clearwater Marine Aquarium which was only about 20 minutes away, a little longer with traffic. We had also hoped to visit Anna Maria Island for an early morning turtle walk, but it was almost two hours away, even though the hotel initially told me 45 minutes. Overall, a very good choice, nicer than many of the places we walked by. I would stay there again. It would have been awesome if the rooms had balconies!
