About Christina Sandvoss
My family purchased this condo after having spent many vacations on various beaches on both coasts of the United States. My parents knew they wanted a strictly beachfront condo where they could sit on a very private balcony in the morning with a cup of coffee and enjoy watching the dolphins.
Christina Sandvoss purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Christina Sandvoss chose Belle Vista
This particular condo has such an amazing view. It truly is a corner of paradise on the top (5th Floor) You cannot see either of the two balconies from any other condo in the building and does not have a window to an outside hallway offering additional privacy and security advantages. The building is centrally located which means you can take a shuttle or Uber from the airport and not even bother having a car. If you have a car it is an easy drive to and from the airport with a parking space next to the elevator. There is a trolley on St. Pete Beach that you can pick up at various stops along Gulf Blvd and goes as far north as Clearwater and the beautiful and exciting city of St Petersburg. The beachfront condo, #503, is directly on St. Pete Beach and since they loved walking, this beach provided a long 7 miles uninterrupted distance on a wide sandy white firm sand beach. You are also able to walk along the beach to somewhere for breakfast or an afternoon beer. It is an amazing beach for swimming and has water sports available as well as shopping and grocery within walking distance. Another criterion is that is from the main public access to the beach so the beachfront is never super crowded and in a smaller building, such as this, there aren't long waits at the elevator or the area crowded on the beach in front of the building. I live in the area, which is full of sporting and cultural events . With downtown St Petersburg, named in 2018 as one of the prettiest cities in the South by Southern Living, and Tamp just over the bridge, it is an amazing location.
What makes this Apartment unique
The advantages of staying in the beachfront condo vs. staying in a beachfront hotel room or a condo with just a view of the beach are numerous. You will have my reserved parking space under the building directly next to the elevator at no extra charge. The guest bedroom has a privacy door, which not all of the condos in the building have, and my washer and dryer are not in the guest bedroom, as many in the building are, but in the hallway near the kitchen. My condo does not have any bedroom window to an outside hallway which provides extra privacy and security. Being on an end unit means extra windows in the condo with more natural light throughout the condo and sea breezes. The views are breathtaking and because this is not a large hotel you will not be crowded on the beach in front of the condo. Of course, you would never have to leave the condo to watch the dolphins or the sunset. In recent years a reputable travel company designated St. Pete Beach, Florida, as Top Beach Destination in the U.S. with seven miles of sugar-white sand and January of 2019 Southern Living ran a complete article t St Petersburg and many of the attractions and benefits. The kitchen, both bathrooms and built-in storage in both bedrooms have been recently upgraded. Now my guests have additional storage in the kitchen, two new custom-built bedroom storage and closet areas and a desk/cabinet area in the living room. I installed a walk-in shower featuring a rain shower and/or handheld shower in the master bathroom as well as safety bars in both remodeled bathrooms including a new, safer bathtub in the guest BR I hope you enjoy St. Petersburg as much as I have over the past twenty years.
