What a awesome house! We spent 5 nights and enjoyed every minute. The home is beautifully decorated. Enjoyed all the amenities - pool, beach chairs, bike rides, fishing from the dock and watching the dolphins play. Thank you to the owners for sharing their home with us and to Sandy Beach for answering all my questions and the seamless check-in/checkout. We will be back!

This is the best place to stay. Big 2 thumbs up. To Sandy Beach Vacations, their staff always very friendly and helpful makes us feel like family. The apartment was great.   State of the art tv's, furniture, decorations, amenities and color. Very modernized unit with everything you need to make your stay a dream come true. Very well taken care and super clean. It is hard to believe this a rental property. We love it. :-) The Garcia's

The Waves St Pete Beach #16

 
By:
Easy to get to. Space was clean, well kept, and quiet. The decor was not my taste, but I can see how it would not offend a broad group of people. I would highly recommend!! Will look at booking again soon!

Sea Side 102

 
By:
Amazing views with beachfront access! This is our second time staying here with our entire family (two adults and three children) and is more than enough room. The access to the beach makes this unit very desirable. Being able to walk directly out without having to load everything and everyone in and out of a car is so nice and a huge timesaver. They also have a pool (the kids favorite) where you can watch your kids swim right off the balcony and still have the ocean view in the background! It is always well cleaned, maintained and has virtually anything you could need as far as “the little things” in the kitchen and toys in the pool closet. We will definitely be back many more times. Thanks again for such an amazing vacation!

Vista Verde North Townhouse 07

San Remo 207

My family and I loved our stay in this lovely, newly renovated condo! The property was very clean (inside and out) and accommodating would be an understatement. The kitchen was fully equipped with anything and everything we needed, the rooms were all spacious and provided the perfect at home comfort feeling, and the large balcony overlooking the pool and ocean has the perfect view! The laundry room has a wonderful full size washer and dryer and was stocked with beach toys for the kids to use and even goggles! Chairs, an umbrella, and even coolers were also provided in this condo! We could not have asked for anything more to be provided for us! The swimming pool and hot tub area is very welcoming and very easy to access. Having two small children, the nice clean bathrooms provided there was also a huge plus! Thank you for sharing your condo with us and making our family vacation one to remember!

Vista Verde East 2-111

 
By:
Walked into newly renovated condo with brand new appliances; which was fantastic! Had a nice relaxing feel to it with view of pond and fountain outside. Beds are very comfortable and baths had excellent water pressure which is a plus. Nice and clean, definitely recommend! Parking was directly in front of entrance! Pool easy walk away and very close to St Pete Beach and restaurants. Beautiful, safe, golf course community with amazing palm lined streets, and lots of security on golf carts.

Harbor Charm

 
By:
We booked a 3-day stay to get out of the cold fall Chicago weather, and had a perfect time relaxing poolside at Harbor Charm. The house is very spacious and accommodating, but the best part about the house is the back yard, which is completely private. The pool is heated, plenty of lawn chairs to lay out and soak up some sun, and at night the pool lights and tiki torches make you feel like you're in the jungle. So cool. There is even an easy-to-use Bluetooth speaker system outside which sounds brand new. I will be coming back!

We watched the dolphins and enjoyed the birds each day and gorgeous sunrise and sunsets from inside or on the patio. As I was recovering from surgery, there could not have been a more delightful and comfortable place to recuperate! The condo was furnished with tasteful and pleasing decor. Everything we needed was provided. Look forward to another visit.

San Remo 501

The unit was everything we expected and more!! Fantastic views of sunrise and sunset from the unit. You could sit on the balcony and watch all the bird activity at the sanctuary next door. The unit was tastefully decorated and had everything we needed.

Dear Sandy Vacation Team, We had a very relaxing and beautiful stay. Everything was perfect. 

Harbor Charm

 
By:
We had the best long weekend as new empty nesters! The house was perfect! So spacious. It came equipped with everything you could ever possibly need!!! The view out the back was spectacular!! As much as we thought we’d spend all our time at the beach we decided how much we enjoyed the pool and the view so we opted to hang there most of the time. I slept so well. The bed was so comfortable. I was in the master bedroom which stayed so nice and cool. I’ve never seen such a well equipped kitchen. There are games, books and movies galore. The bikes were awesome! Dozens of beach towels too. I could go on and on about how happy I was with this rental home!! And the rental company ladies I spoke with at Sandy Beach Vacation Rentals could not have been nicer and more pleasant!!! This whole experience tops as one of my best ever!!

This is our second year to come back to this same property. Loved it so much last year we wanted to do it again! Communications were excellent; we had a few minor issues and they were addressed immediately. Location is superb; unit is amazing; view to the ocean and pool is second to none. Can’t wait to come back next year!

San Remo 207

We rented unit 207 at San Remo through Sandy Beach Vacation Rentals at Redington Shores Florida this August (2019.) Cherie was our person of contact and helped us with making our reservation, our stay and everything along the way, and through checkout. It was the GREATEST experience of our lives. The condo was just as it looked in the pictures. So nicely decorated. Bright and cheery and very "beachy". It was clean and ready for our arrival and the best part was that we were allowed to check in VERY early! This was great because our flight arrived at 11:00 am and we would have had many hours to wait. The very thorough check in instructions that were emailed to us before our trip, were easy to follow and worked like a charm! You don't use keys for anything. Everything from entering the building, to entering your condo, to entering the pool area is done by entering a digital code. This was so great to not have to remember to bring different keys with you everywhere you go. There was PLENTY of parking. We had a need for handicap parking and we were able to find a spot almost every day of our stay. It felt like home from the minute we stepped through the door. The first thing we saw was the view from the front door, straight through the living room,directly through the sliding glass doors, looking out to the pool, beach and ocean! It was BREATH TAKING! The owners really put a lot of thought into what a renter would need while vacationing. From soap, dish-washing detergent, paper towels, toilet paper to lots of bath towels and beach towels!!! Which was GREATLY APPRECIATED! There was also a closet full of beach toys, floats, coolers, umbrella, etc. There were lots of extra pillows and many extra blankets (thought we didn't need them.) There were even coat hangars in the closet which was also greatly appreciated. There was every kitchen utensil you could think of and there was both a coffee pot and a keurig. As a huge coffee loving family, this was AWESOME! There was even some coffee to get us started!!!! There were plenty of dishes, glasses, pots, pans, bowls, and silverware. All the appliances were in great working order! There was PLENTY of drawers for clothing. There was a blow dryer in each bathroom. The beds were comfortable and bedding was clean and comfy. You had to keep the a/c at 72 degrees or higher. However, I am somebody, who - for health reasons - needs a very cool (actually cold) environment, and 72 was plenty cool. It was the perfect temperature for me! Most people would probably find it too cool and want to put it up a few degrees, like my family lol. The building is an older building but it is kept up and the grounds are kept well. The pool and hot tub area are awesome. They are enclosed and can only be accessed with a code.  The hot tub was AMAZING! It was hot enough that made you hesitate for a moment at its heat, but then quickly melted into it relaxing your muscles and bones. It was heaven and oh how I wish we were back there right now!! I highly recommend staying here. We are already planning our next stay. You will enjoy Unit 207 very much and Cherie is WONDERFUL to work with!!!!

We loved the Gulfside Manor #2. Everything we needed for a fun filled weekend. The condo was supplied generously. The condo, location, building, and pool were great and we would definitely consider going back next year.

Gulfside Manor #3 Penthouse

 
By:
Over the years we have stayed at each of the three Gulfside Manor units, and while all of them are pretty much the same inside, #3 has the best view by far. All these units are everything one could ask for and more! The area itself has so many amenities within walking distance that we barely use our rental car.  We cannot say enough for the Sandy Beach Vacation Rental staff! Carrie, Cherie, and the crew have always taken wonderful care of us, which is one of the reasons we've been coming back year after year, and will continue to do so!

Isla Bahia Vista 8-210

The condo was clean, nicely decorated and had an amazing view of the pool with the bay behind it. We were able to sit on the terrace in the morning and eat breakfast while watching boats drive by and the occasional school of dolphins breach the water. The experience was beautiful! The televisions were all equipped with full cable, Apple tv's (for Netflix and streaming apps), and DVD players. The kitchen had every utensil needed to allow us to cook meals every day. There was even a Netspresso machine!!!! We were so happy to leave this review!  We definitely plan on visiting again next summer!!!

The Waves St Pete Beach #16

Arrived to a clean, well equipped condo. Just the right size for us, stocked with all the necessary accruements, even beach chairs and a beach buggy. We found this location to be perfect, close to many restaurants, bars, and only a 5 minute walk to the beach. Couldn't ask for more! Will surely be back in the future.

From booking, payment and welcome pack everything went smoothly and the team were happy to answer questions and provided help and answers when needed. We arrived at the apartment, followed the instructions and entered what can only be described as excellent. The pictures on the website reflected what the apartment was like, if anything they didn’t do it enough justice. The kitchen was well equipped and there were beach towels and beach chairs for us to use too. We had the beach to ourselves most days and the pool was a friendly place to go. The grounds were immaculate and the whole area felt very safe. We wouldn’t hesitate in coming back or recommending this apartment.

This hotel is very clean and well maintained. Due to the trip just being myself and my younger daughter, the overall size of the hotel was perfect for us because it was smaller and quieter. The outdoor patio, beach access and beach itself are all very well maintained and are great! We would definitely stay here again! Thank you Sandy Beach for the opportunity.

Had a wonderful time at Gulfside Manor, Unit 2, last week. Stayed from July 27th through August 3rd. Everything was 'as advertised', and the staff at Sandy Beach Vacations was great. We were able to get in a little early, which was nice. The pool was great, but the beach was better!! Saw dolphins everyday.There were plenty of beach chairs and towels, and a few toys too! We left a cooler-bag and a pop-up canopy at the unit for the next guests to enjoy when they go to the beach. Would definitely stay here again, and would recommend to anyone wanting a nice, peaceful getaway! The Simmons' & The Coopers' Families.
